Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IUHBRIOGE HERALD Scilurclay, Mnrcli 17, T973 Saccharin use looks safer Hy ,IKKV CAKIIUT11ERS llcnilil OI :nva Bureau OTTAWA Things arc look- ing up for dieters and diabetics in Canada. Their favorite artificial sweet- ener, saccharin, now looks safe, according to preliminary results of an intensive, two-year animal experiment just completed ear- lier this month at the research laboratories of the federal health protection branch here. This strongly suggests that saccharin will not likely be banned as a food and restricted lo prescription, as the more popular and less bitter cy- climatc artificial sweeteners were two and one-half years ago. The cyclamates were banned alter animal tests done by the large U.S. manufacturer re- vealed that large doses of the chemical could cause formation of cancerous bladder tumors i.i rats. About a year ago, studies by scientists at the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) uncovered what were reported as similar problems with saccharin: rats fed a five per cent solution o( saccharin reportedly developed large ma- lignant bladder tumors. More recently, reports from the U.S. have suggested that U.S. Food and Drug Adminis- tration studies have uncovered similar cancerous bladder tu- mors in rats fed saccharin, re- QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Meehanii Capita!

By STEWART SIucLEOU OTTAWA (CL3) When John Diofentaker recently asked Prime Minister Trudcau to do something about the redistribu- tion, of electoral boundaries so no province would lose seats, Mr. Trudeau was sympathetic to tlie suggestion, and it was as- sumed a harmonious solution would soon follow. But. while Jittle is being said publicly, it's developing into one of the most divisive issues of tlu's Parliament. The various parties rot only ore disagreeing with each other, they also are disagreeing internally. And the situation -is becoming more complex all the time. Under the 10-year redistribu- tion plan now going new Doundaries wouldn't be estab- lished in lime for a 1973 elec- tion Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec, Manitoba and Saskatchewan would lose seats as the population shifts from ru ral to urban arpas. "No province should lose says Mr. Diefenbaker. And on (his basis he took his case to the Commons. Mr. Trudeau, in agreeing to look into the matter, said that in order to assure no less of seats for a province, the method of linking representa- tion with population would have to be altered, or the total mem- bership of the Commons in creased beyond the present 264. HIGHLY COMPLEX The present method of re- tf representation by population, CG new seats would be required. It was by a close vole that caucus decided the next elec- ion, regardless of when it is ;cld, should be fought on exist- ing boundaries. The r Liberals appear to have reached the same conclusion. NOT THAT SIMPLE MONTREAL (CP) Marc Cayer hid under a bed for more than three days in an attempt to avoid detection by the Viet Cong while sporadic fighing continued nearby between Souli Vietnamese forces and Viet Cong soldiers. Mr, Cayer. ;ui agronomist was taken prisoner by the Viet Cong during the February, 1963 battle and remained imprison- ed until last month when he by the North Iiiircliill locuments published LONDON (AP) Relations ehvecn (he Unilcd Slates and ritain svcrc so bad in 1923 (hat ar was seen ps possible.

Churchill, son of an American nother and a longtime friend of ic United States, hecame Brit- in's leader in the Second Torld War, closely 'ith President Rocseveli.

The documents on British for. eign policy in 1928 were pun- ished in book form by the gov- ernment stationery office Thursday although they have n open for public inspection for some time.

In tlie second of a series of interviews with La Presse, he .says when the Tet offensive by the Viet Cong began at Hue, South Vietnam, lie ant] his American room-mate, Gary Daves, decided lo take shelter under a bed in their.apartinent.

The two men, both employed by the Inter- national Voluntary Services Inc., barricaded the bed furniture and mattresses. weren't too worried be- cause it wasn't tlie first time Hue had been attacked. Usually the Viet Cong occupied 0112 area for several hours and then left. This time, unfortunately they didn't leave. "From time to time, th2 fighting between 'our' Viet Cong and the South Vietnamese, hold ing a nearby alley, would fiare up. The bullets passed behind But it isn't lliat simple, say manv of their MPs. By an act of Parliament, the redistribu- tion process now is going ahead. "Just to slop the proccs says one veteran Consen'aUyc, "would require about five pieces of legislation, each re- quiring unanimous consent." Unaminous consent at this stage seams highly unlikely. Meanwhile, if the Con- servative caucus seems Inclined to let the matter rest for a lime, a determined Mr. Die- fenbaker clearly is not. He not only vows to fight any loss ot seals "to the ho has come up with his .own formula for in- creasing House snemberslu'p. he house and we could hear the zing zing. Very reassuring.

Mr. Cayer said he and Mr. Daves were taken by jeep to a "sort uf hospital where they threw our shoes so tracks showing Westerners bad passed by would not be distributing seats is highly com- plex. While population is the governing factor, there are other assorted considerations, such as no province losing more than 15 per cent of its represen- tation in any single redistribu- tion and no province having fewer MPs than senators. After the issue was raised in the House by Mr. Diefenbaker the prime minister asked Lib era! House Leader Allan MacEachen to see whether he could come up with an accept able formula for assuming ru loss of seals in any province Mr. MacEachen went before his caucus with a plan lo add 33 more Commons seats, and ran into sharply divided reactions. interpreter came and in bad English to pre- 'An lolrl pare ourselves to take to the road.

Many Conservatives ob- jected that Ontario would get 19 of the additional 35 seats. Meanwhile, the Conservative caucus split sharply on the whole issue.
