Prof. Bevis refused to elaborate on the bare details he the children were born in western at least one of them in that the eldest now is 18 and that all three are apparently healthy and normal. His statement aroused a furor among rival teams. working on laboratory fer- tilization of human eggs and their subsequent im- plantation into the womb Prof. Bevis denied he had been involved with the successful test-tube baby operation Dr. Peel would personally rather have seen something as impor- tant as this announced in a scientific with scientific details.

A. K. Dasgupta of the department's health protec- tion branch stressed in an interview that the radiation from the Chinese atmospheric blast not represent any health The high levels lasted only a few days and are a far cry from the radiation caused by protracted atmospheric tests by the United States and Soviet Union in the 1960s. from a normal level of 25 units of the gov- ernment's testing station in Winnipeg found an increase to 4.76 units July about two weeks after the June 17 ex- plosion. A smaller to .71 had been detected over Regina June 24-25 and an ear- lier wave raised the level over Winnipeg to 1.17 June 22-23. By July 10 it had returned to normal. No unusual increases were recorded at any of the other 22 monitoring stations the department has across 'the country. Dr. Dasgupta says it is nor- mal for such radioactivity to appear at isolated locations. The fallout from the blast travels in jetstreams thousands of then either filters to earth or is flushed down in rains.

France was testing at about the same time in the air over the South Pacific. But that was in the southern and only diffuse radiation would emerge in Canada Only the Chinese explosion could have caused the sudden increase. And the discovery of fresh fission material is evi- dence the radiation comes from a bomb and is not natural. fn the early radiation levels averaged 16 units across and reached a peak of 41 in Dr. Dasgupta says.
