Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, March 11, 1971 Clean health hill for saccharine OTTAWA (CP) - Saccharine is coming through with a clean bill of health near the halfway point of the first scientific safety tests applied to the artificial sweetening in this country. "They are quite encouraging," Dr. Ross Chapman, assistant deputy health minister, re- Slowdown hits gram movement VANCOUVER (CP)-A work-to - rule campaign by about 300 Vancouver - based CP Rail conductors, trainmen and yardmen is hampering movement of export grain and perishable goods for the domestic market, a railway official said Wednesday. William Stinson, assist ant manager of operations and maintenance, said the campaign which began during the weekend, was adding to problems in getting grain to port elevators for ship loading. He said that perishable goods which arrived here last weekend were still waiting to be placed along warehouse sidings for unloading. The work-to-rule campaign by members of the United Transportation Union, Local 4:3, followed actions last month by CP Rail and CNR locomotive engineers who booked off sick to protest the slowness of national contract negotiations. HOT PANTS WARNING JOHANNESBURG (Reuter) - Johannesburg lay preacher Gert Yssel believes hot pants will incur the wrath of God. Yssel, 68-year-old father of four, warns that floods, droughts and other disasters in South Africa are caused by women's immodesty. ported Wednesday in an interview. Not one of the 600 rats being used in the trials has died as a result of being fed saccharine in varying doses. In fact, deaths have been unusually low for a colony of test and control animals of that size, said Dr. Ian Munro, research scientist at the federal food and drug directorate responsible for the tests. Saccharine came under suspicion in late 1969 at the time of the big public scare which resulted in the federal government instituting a progressively-applied ban on cyclamates, another chemical sweetening-Scientists, faced with evidence that high doses of cy�la-mates fed to rats seemed to cause higher rates of bladder cancer, realized that saccharine had been in use since before 1900 without ever undergoing serious scientific testing. In the United States, one set of studies with saccharine at the University of Wisconsin was reported to have produced bladder cancers in mice. Dr. Chapman had the evidence examined and concluded they were inapplicable to human use of the sweetening. Instead of feeding the saccharine tp the laboratory animals, the Wisconsin researchers were implanting saccharine pellets in the urinary bladder of female mice, resulting in significantly more bladder cancer. At the time, Dr. Chapman said that Ms "technique does not provide definite information as to the hazards of compounds such as artificial sweeteners which are taken by mouth." The Canadian tests started last May with rats being fed saccharine in their daily diet at levels of 90, 270, 800 and 2,400 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. No adverse effects were reported and the only observed effect was that those on the highest dosage in both sexes suffered a sight diarrhea. FACES CHARGE - Military Capt. Ernest Medina has been ordered court-martialed in connection with the assault on My Lai. Cattlemen seek fees adjustment EDMONTON (CP) - The Western Stock Growers' Association has asked the province for an adjustment in the ratio of charges for rented pasture and rented crown arable land. The government's present fee is based on an assessment that one acre of arable land is worth 3.2 acres of pasture. Thi association, in a brief to the cabinet, said a more realistic ratio, based on productivity, would be one to 42. The brief said stock growers also are concerned with the area of property rights. It said government policies are "based on a false premise - that game is a free goods and there is no production cost involved." However, these policies ignored the costs incurred by farmers in feeding and housing game and, in allowing hunters onto their property. Tories jeer Benson OTTAWA (CP) - Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said Wednesday Finance Minister Edgar Benson has made his white paper on taxation disappear and asked whether the minister will follow. His Commons remark brought thunderous applause and cheering from the Conservatives. Mr. Benson said a little later in reply to Max Saltsman, the New Democrat financial spokesman, that he had taken into account the views of ordinary people and not just those of Bay Street as represented by Mr. Stanfield. The boisterous exchange came during the Commons question period as Mr. Benson faced a series of queries on a statement at Kingston, Ont., Tuesday night that the white paper on taxation will never be legislated. Mr. Benson said in reply to Mr. Stanfield that he indicated at Kingston that there would still be a "comprehensive tax reform." Mr. Benson said he had said 100 times that the white paper had been a discussion document only- This was greeted with Conservative jeers. Marcel Lambert (PC-Edmonton West) unsuccessfully tried to get the whole matter referred to the Commons finance committee so that Mr. Benson could remove "doubt and confusion." The white paper itself was subjected to intensive examination by committees of the Commons and Senate. Legislation based on it will be discussed by the Commons in what is called committee of the whole at the stage of second reading. No further committee study will be possible, however. The Senate scrutiny could include another committee examination. Hbti&e of I
