Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Monday, July 26, 1971 Crew a study in contrast HCklSTON (AP) The three Apollo 15 astronauts arc a study in contrast: There's an all- America n military man; a qmet, reserved plumber's son; a mod-dressing, fast-talking bachelor. Col. David Randolph S'cott, 39-year-old com m a n d e r of Apollo 15, is an air force gen- eral's son who has aimed at a military career since boyhood. The six-foot tall, blue-eyed spaceman was bom on a mili- tary base, got his middle name from an' air force base and spent his boyhood in military schools. Scott graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.H., fifth in a class of 633 in 1954. He took his commis- Saigon hero presidential candidate SAIGON (AP) Retired Gen. Duong Van (Big) Minh today became the third candidate for the presidency of South Viet- nam. The 56-year-old hero of the coup that overthrew President Ngo Dinh Diem also made his candidacy conditional on Presi- dent Nguyen Van Thieu not trying to rig the election Oct. 3, saying: "I would ask the people to leave me an escape if I see that the elections are not clean. I would ask the people again to pardon me and permit me to withdraw." Thieu formally announced Saturday he will seek a second four-year term, and Vice-Presi- dent Nguyen Cao Ky declared himself a candidate several weeks ago. Minn's running mate will be Ho Van Minh, 35-year-old dep- uty speaker of the House of Representatives and a leading member of the lower house's anti-Tnieu bloc.

The accident occurred at the monorail terminal at the Seattle Centre, a system of exhibits, shops and amusements which now occupks the fair site. Most of the injured suffered facial lacerations or fractures, 1 hospital officials reported. Scott demonstrated his coo] on Gemini 8 in 1966 when the spacecraft went out of control.

The son of a plumber, Irwin grew up in Salt Lake City, at- tended the U.S. Naval Academy and took his commission in the air force. He became a jet pilot and later graduated from the test pilot school. In the 1961 accident, Irwin broke both legs, his jaw and suffered a severe concussion. The accident "kind of wiped me he says. "I never ex- pected I'd ever be able to qual- ify for the astronaut program." But he recovered and was se- lected in 1966. Iiwin is married to the for- mer Mary Ellen Monroe of Cor- vallis, Ore.

New disease affects taste and smell CHICAGO (AP) Four doctors report they have dis- covered a new disease that af- :ecls patients' senses of taste and smell and makes food taste like sawdust for sufferers. The disease, said to be pre- viously unrecognized, is re- ported in the July 2G issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The four doctors, from the National Institute of Health, in Bethesda, Md., have examined 35 patients suffering from the disease. It's called "icliopathic which means a de- creased sense of taste, and its cause is unknown. The physicians, Drs. Robert I. Henkin, Paul J. Schecter, Robert Hoye and Carl F. T. Mtttern, report that they know o! about patients with, the disease. Symptoms include decreased ability to smell, which may be accompanied by unpleasant and perverted sense of taste and smell. Other symptoms are persis- tent sensations of saltiness, sweetness, sourness, bitterness or metallic tastes, even when food is not present; sensations of persistent foul odor; hearing loss; a sensation of movement; and unexplained pressure. high blood The researchers say the dis- ease causes great psychologi- cal distress among patients suffering from it, and that often physicians refer the patients to psychiatrists because they fail in recognize the cause of their emotional problem. Among the patients studied, ranging in age from 34 to 611 years, the problem has per sisted for four months to years, with an average of 2.ii years. The persistence of the symp- toms without relief or hope of relief resulted in loss of appe- tite and up to 50 pounds severe depression and suicidal thoughts, the doc- tors report. Some even had to give up their employment. The researchers reported that the symptoms of the dis- ease appeared most often after a respiratory tract illness. Oth- er patients had influenza or surgical procedures not related to the nose, mouth or throat. In 15 patients no preceding event could be traced. Some patients reported that eating was similar to chewing and swallowing flour paste or sawdust. Twenty-eight of the or to distinguish fresh from spoiled foods. Patients also reported being unable to detect the odor of escaping gas from heating or cooking appliances. The researchers found struc- tural changes in the taste buds of the patients. They treated the disease with oral doses of zinc sulphate and found that it improved the patients' ability to tas'e and smell.

'Crisis Centre' needed now says CMHA man CALGARY (CP) The city needs a 24-hour "crisis centre" to help people in emotional or psychological distress, says Ron Lajeunesse, Calgary exec- utive officer of the Canadian Mental Health Association. In a brief to the city social service committee, he said a round-the-clock centre is essen- tial for an expanding city where facilities are not meeting the need. Social workers say a new centre would be unnecessary because the job is being ade- quately done. Earlier, representatives of private welfare agencies in Cal- gary urged establishment of the service, but were told the idea would be considered fur- ther, likely within a month.

Living costs push Nixon on inflation WASHINGTON (AP) A sharp rise in the cost of living las put new pressure on Presi- dent Nixon to toughen his anti- .nflation policies without resort- ing to wage and price controls. Consumer prices rose six- tenths of one per cent in June, the labor department said Fri- day, the sharpest one-month ad- vance in more than a year. On top of another big rise in the cost-of-living index in May, the June increase gave rise to new fears among government economists that inflation is ac- celerating, after some modera- tion early this year. But Nixon up to now has re- jected calls from bolh inside and outside government to pul his administration behind full-scale "incomes policy" thai would simply imply more direct White House intervention in wage and price decisions. Friday, Arthur F. Burns, chairman of the Federal Re- serve Board, renewed the call saying the administration should establish a wage and price review board to combat what Burns called an "unac ceptable and dangerous" rate o: inflation. Labor Secretary James D Hodgson said he doubted tha Nixon would change his eco- nomic policies. BABY BOOM ANDOVER, England (AP) The population explosion ha?
