Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, 21, 1972 THE ItTHBRIOGE HERAID 19 Iceland to host world chess championship A POSH WATERING PLACE in South Vietnam is like gold-where you find it, in a helmet. This Gl is refreshing himself near a stream six miles wesl of Phu Bai. REYKJAVIK (heuler) Ice- land is enthusiastically prepar- ing to play host to a world chess championship likely lo gain the attention of more people than any other event of its kind ever held. The contest, opening July 2, has become one of the most fas- cinating confrontations in the centuries-old history of chess. The American challenger, Bobby Fischer, poses the big- threat in many years lo Ihc .ong hold of Soviet players on .he title, and has established a reputation as one of the most :olorful ;-nd enigmatic players ever to reach world status. When he meets the formidable world champion, Boriss Spas- sky, the 20-year-old Fischer mil riding the crest of an cx- Chemotherapy new hope for cancer patients traordinary siring of one-sided victories over top players in the elimination tournament which made him Ihe challenger. Spassky, 35, will ha defending a Soviet hold on the title that has remained unbroken for 24 the dominant player for two deceries before that was a Russian-born chess genius who lived in France, Alexander Alekhine. HE'S 'JUGGERNAUT' Fischer, a former child prod- igy who was once thought to have blighted his career by a scries of seemingly tempera- mental withdrawals, has now emorged as a chess juggernaut. Experts are divided on whether he will be able to de- molish Spassky Ihe way he did former world champion Tigran Petrosian, also of the Soviet Union, la'.t autumn to gain the right to challenge for the title. I'elrosian is famous for Ins patient, systematic play, but an- alysis agreed that Fischer shat- tered his game. After their Bue- nos Aires series, one of Petro- sian's analysis, Soviet grand- master Yuri Averbach, said: "His spirit was completely bro- ken after the sixth game of the match. "There is some strange mag- netic influence in Aver- bach said. "The same happened with his two previous opponents in his march for the world title, grandmasters Mark Taimanov and Bent Larsen. They were also spiritually wrecked after the first couple of games." But many experts feel Fischer will be up against a different problem in Spassky, who look the world championship from Petrosian in 1959 and has earned broad respect for his at- tacking flair and deep determi- nation. PICKED Al'TEIt HASSLE Iceland was fixed as the site of the chamryonship only after Fischer, Ihe International Chess Federation, and (he Soviet fed- eration were involved in a tor- tuous series of quarrels and ne- gotiations over several possible sites and financial arrange- ments. Bui Ihcre is an intrinsic logic lo the site. With an American tlirealening lo break- Ihe long- standing Soviet monopoly on the chess summit, this North Atlan- tic island is nearly a midway i point, between the two vast counlrics. In addition, Icelanders have lonr among Ih.e most de- voted of chess players. From the mirld'c ages, the game has been a favorite pastime in the long northern winters. This country of only people has produced grandmasters like Fridrik Olafsson and others well-known in the chess world. The Icelandic chess union has offered in prize money. The championship will go on for 24 games unless one of the players clinches the series first. LOSE BRANCHES Trees growing in dense for- ests lose their lower branches before trees growing in the open. By BILL STOCKTON LOS ANGELES (AP) 21-year-old Sharon entered the hospital in March with internal abdominal bleeding, exploratory surgery and a brain scan swiftly brought a frightening di- agnosis. She had cancer of the genital tract. Originating in the right ovary, the matignant cells had spread to the left lung and the brain. A few years ago, Sharon would have soon died. But she recently was released from the hospital and her doctors now give her a 90 per cent chance of survival. The treatment is known as cancer use of potent drugs in massive doses to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy represents a broad, growing front in the war against cancer in which doctors Mediation format not been decided VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia mediation commission has not yet decided whether to hold one large hear- ing or separate hearings for each union contract referred to it for binding decision in the construction dispute. Commission chairman John Parker said here that the ques- tion will be taken under ad- visement after loday's second round of. preliminary inquiries into disputes involving seven unions still without contract. Monday's session looked into the disputes involving carpen- ters, boilermakers, cement ma- son- and electricians. Today's Youth eating habits plan cut back OTTAWA survey of the eoling habits of transien young people, planned for this summer by Nutrition Canada has been cut back because of a reduced budget. Dr. Z. I. Sabrey, na'iondl co- ordinator of the health depart merit's two-year program t find out how Canadians eat saW his researchers will gi ahead with the survey on travel ling youth, but in a much re- duced way. "We are doing the survey hu along slightly different line, within the budget limitations However, we hope to pin point areas where there ar problems or where more inten sive studies must be carried ou later." When Dr. Sabrey first de scribed the study last May, he said survey officials hail asked for from the treasury Board to set up special teams in various centres across the coun- try. Some of these would have been in youth hostels. Under the new budgetary lim- refused to say what they are because he still hopes to get some additional lunds- iquiry will hear information on is disputes involving plumb- rs, heat-frost insulators, iron orkcrs and mainland sheet .etal workers. Mr. Parker said the construe on labor relations association cpresenting 844 contractors present Monday, but nc union representatives attended B.C. and Yukon building am onslruction trades council offi ials were not available fo omment. It is understood thej re avoiding public common ince the government an lounced its decision to prose- ute for defiance of the orrie o resume work. The lawyers retained by gov- ernment to prosecute under the mediation commission act said ilonday that the investigation is continuing. Virtually all of the members of laborers leeded a union call to return .o their jobs Monday, but a spokesman for the contractors said he didn't know how long :he laborers could be kept work- ing without the key unions that are refusing to go back to work. Mainland sheetmetal workers were told by their union to re- turn to their jobs today pend- ing a membership vote on a tentative contract proposal. The sheetmetal workers are scheduled to be included in to- day's commission inquiry, but it is likely that their dispute will be put aside pending the vote which should be com- pleted within a week. The operating engineers, who were temporarily excludec from commission proceedings, are said to be close to settle- ment with the CLTIA. re winning battles with !n- reasing frequency. Some hemotherapy experts are even alking these days about their ancer patients who've ived five years without detecta- ile cancer returning. STARTED IN 1347 Cancer chemotherapy had a dramatic birth in 1947 when doctors discovered that a drug called aminopterin could bring temporary of acute leukemia or blood cancer in children. In the ensuring 25 years thou- sands upon thousands of drugs lave been tested against dozens of types of cancer. Initially, many were fount .hat coulti bring remission in leukemia, but the disease re- :urned and the patient died Then experiments began with carefully-limed combinations o drugs, increasing the over-al effect. At M. D. Anderson Hospita and Tumor Institute in Houston Tex., for example, a four-drug combo used on adult leukemia patients is giving 50 per cent of the patients a remission that lasts up to 40 weeks. RESULTS ELATING Results with children are even more elating. The Hoswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, N.Y., re- ports 70 per cent remission and 90 per cent survival after 3% undreamed of in he late 13COs. Doctors at St. Judc's Children's Research Hos- )ital in Memphis, Tenn., are combing drugs and radiation and have some patients who lave survived long enough to be considered cured. The principle behind chemoth- erapy is simple. Flood the body with a powerful poison that in- terferes with the reproduction or growth processes of both normal and cancerous. Be- cause of the nature of cancer there he fewer survey teams and fewer youths will be examined. Some of the examinations will be at the regular Nutrition Can- ada survey clinics, which are finishing off their two-year sur- vey in Ihe Atlantic provi'lice and Ontario this summer. The youth survey will concentrate on areas in Quebec and Western Canada.

Ontario revamps municipal govl. syslem OTTAWA (CP) major re- organization of Ontario's local government system, including establishment of five planning regions instead of the present 10, was announced today. Darcy McKeough, Ontario's minister of intergovernmental affairs, said tho move will make government more responsive to major problems such as protec- tion of Ihe environment and con- servation of resources. Mr. McKeough told the Asso- ciation of Municipalities of On- tario that counties, the tradi- tional backbone of local govern- ment, may abolished. He said the structure of mu- nicipal government is out of pace with modern needs and in some cases impedes programs established by the province. The province's regional plan- ning system, he said, is in- tended to provide a guide to careful use of land, water and air. "This policy could he frus- trated, indeed contradicted, by a system of local government that feels compelled to maxim- ize its development and its tax yields."
