The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Tuesday, January 22, 1974 Corpse freezing tests losing public interest By BRUCE RUSSELL LOS ANGELES (Reuter) Public interest in experiments to freeze corpses so they can be raised from the dead some day has dropped off since the idea was first tried in the late 1960s, says an official of the California Cryonics Society. Two bodies have been with- drawn from the freezing chambers where they were held for possible revivals because their families lost interest in the experiment, says Robert Nelson, president of the society. Nelson says a third body, that of Dr. James Bedford, the first ever to be placed in deep freeze in a widely publicized operation in 1967, also might be withdrawn. He says the decline in public interest is shown by a marked drop-off in the number of in- quiries received by the society. But he says the 300 members of the California society remain as dedicated as ever to the idea and Nelson describes anyone who does not sign up for deepfreezing after death as "committing suicide." Altogether 14 bodies are stored in rented space in mor- tuaries in Los Angeles and New Jersey, says Nelson. Periodically a truck drives up to the mortuary and pumps in a new supply of liquid nitrogen to insure the temperature of the bodies remains at -320 degrees. Vandals wreck schools EDMONTON (CP) Van- dals struck at three schools in Edmonton during the weekend and police said Monday the damage was extensive. Most of the damage was done to the J. Bowlen Junior High School in the city's northeast corner, where equipment and supplies were smashed in all sections of the school. through a fire door and ed television sets, recording machines. They also smashed windows and tipped over shelves of books. Some television sets were dropped down a staircase to a cement floor and destroyed. The vandals also ruined stoves and refrigerators in an in- dustrial arts classroom and tore up equipment in the main office. Police said the incidents probably happened between Saturday afternoon and Sun- day morning. The idea of deep-freezing bodies received wide publicly in 1972 when an eight-year-old Montreal girl, Genevieve de la Poterie, was frozen soon after she died here of cancer. The moment she was pro- nounced dead in hospital she was injected with a blood- thinning liquid and put into a plastic bag filled with crushed ice. The ambulance which rush- ed her to a mortuary was equipped with a heart-lung machine to keep blood cir- culating through her system, nourishing the cells with ox- ygen. At the mortuary her body was drained of blood and the veins refilled with a chemical to prevent the formation of destructive ice crystals in the body. Then the temperature of the body was slowly lowered. At- 140 she was placed in the stainless steel cylinder filled with liquid nitrogen. Genevieve's parents hope she will she was placed in the when science is able to cure her cancer. The total cost is about says Nelson. About of this goes to paying for the steel tube and mor- tuary expenses and the rest is put in trust to pay for perpetual upkeep. TV highlights TUESDAY CRIME DRAMA; Hawaii Five-O, p.m., Ch. 13.

By PAUL IREDALE LONDON (Reuter) The Tower of London has been closed for extensive restoration. The closure is part of a con- tinuous program to conserve Britain's great historical monument for the millions of tourists who flock to see it every year. Archaeologists are explor- There is only today between you and tomorrow Which is why Canada Pension Plan benefits will be increased today and will be kept in line with the cost increases of tomorrow What this means to you as a beneficiary From January 1st 1974, Canada Pension Plan benefit payments will be adjusted to reach then maintain a level in line with the actual cost of living. If you are receiving monthly benefits that began during the period 1967 to 1973, your benefits have been recalculated so that the amount you receive in 1974 is related to the actual increase in the cost of living over the years your benefits have been paid.- When you receive your January 1974 benefit cheque, you will see that it has been increased. The increase in your payment will vary from 8% to 20% and will depend on the year in which your benefit first became payable. In future years, if living costs continue to rise, you can expect further increases in your benefits based on current cost of living data. What this means to you as a contributor As a contributor to the Canada Pension Plan, you are building a basic and portable retirement plan for the future and at the same time providing current protection for yourself and your dependents against the possibility of severe disability or early death. In order to protect the value of your eventual benefits, the Canadian Parliament has passed legislation which ensures that the contributions you make today will give benefits that maintain the purchasing power of today's wages twenty, thirty or even fifty years from now when you need it! To achieve this, the Government plans to have the earnings ceiling the maximum amount on which contributions are paid and on which benefits are calculated increased each year so that it will reach, and then keep even with the average earnings of Canadian industrial workers. This ceiling will be raised from in 1973, to in 1974 and in 1975. This new earnings ceiling means that the year's basic exemp- tion the initial amount on which you do not pay contributions is changed from in 1973 to for 1974. These changes also mean that the maximum employee con- tributions will increase from a year in 1973 to in 1974. Your contribution is matched by your employer. In the case of self-employed persons, the maximum annual contribution is increased to for 1974 as against last year. For earnings of less than there will be no increase in contributions. The change in the earnings ceiling means that the maximum retirement pension will rise from for pensions effective in December 1973 to for those whose pensions will begin in December 1975. As the maximum earnings levels for the years after 1975 continue to rise, so will the maximum retirement pensions in those years. There will also be increases in the maximum values each year for disability and survivors' benefits. you have any questions or would like further informa- tion, please write: Canada Pension Plan, Department of National Health and Welfare, Place Vanier, Tower Ottawa, Ontario, K1AOL1.

Raleigh spent three periods of imprisonment in the Tower, including 13 years from 1603 to 1616 when he wrote his History of the World. His confinement in what was then known as the Garden Tower was loose and he kept two servants there, receiving frequent visits from his wife and son. When the restoration of the Tower is completed, the rooms will be decorated with Jacobean furnishings, adding a touch of realism to Raleigh's former home and prison. Another move towards mak- ing the Tower of London more "realistic" as a tourist attrac- tion is the laying of a water course around Traitors Gate. ENTRY FOR PRISONERS Traitors' Gate was for cen- turies the main river entrance to the Tower. Originally called the Watergate, it leads directly from the Thames and was the gate through which many of the Tower's best-known prisoners entered. Sir Thomas Moore, Henjy VIII's ill-fated Roman Catholic chancellor, came through Traitors' Gate and the gate prompted the poet Thomas Gray to talk of "Lon- don's lasting shame, with many a foul and midnight murder fed." Work on the Tower is intense and varied. "We have to consolidate the remains and at the same time allow the public a little more to says archeologist Peter Cur- now. Making records is an impor- tant part of the work at the Tower, and while work is in process on Traitors' Gate, archeologists take the oppor- tunity to make a cutting through the structure so that the dates of the layers can be fixed. LIVES IN TOWER Almost 150 persons have their homes at the Tower of London, together with the governor, Maj. Gen. W. Raeburn, who lives in the rooms where Guy Fawkes, the man who tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament on Nov. 5, 1605, was interrogated. The governor is" the co- ordinator of the everyday af- fairs of the Tower of London, and he sees himself more as a modern executive than as a historical figure. The present governor's most satisfying occupation, he says, is to take important visitors to see the Crown jew- els. The display of the Crown jewels has become something of a headache and only a small proportion of the visitors who visit the Tower every day at the height of the summer can get down to the solidly built basement with its heavily vaulted see the treasures of the British monarchy. says the governor, "we are taking advice on how to cut down the lines of waiting people for the jewel house and to .alleviate the problem." U.S. ALL WET WASHINGTON (AP) At least one natural resource, water, remained in more than abundant supply last year. The U.S. Geological Sur- vey reports that 1973 was "one of the wettest years ever" in terms of stream-flow, lake and ground-water conditions. The Mississippi River led the way, registering an average daily flow of 630 billion gallons at Vicksburg, Miss., 70 per cent above normal and the highest average flow in 46 years. parts on "The Monty Python's Flying MOVIE COMEDY: "For Those Who Think 1 p.m., Ch. 13.
