Five years ago Jeffrey died of cancer. The disease was discovered in Michael one day prior to Jeffrey's death. Radiation and other treatment apparently helped Michael. -Now Stephen has cancer and doctors predict a 30 per cent chance of recovery. .Si, Europe at loggerheads Political ties strained WASHINGTON (AP) -The low point in United States-Eu- ropean relations signalled Fri- day by President Nixon is the result of a calculated American effort and "cheap political talk" on both sides, Nixon administration sources say.

(AP) A weird thing happened to Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker Jr. as they stood casting for croakers in the Pascagoula River. They said a spaceship hovered nearby and three pale, wrinkled creatures seized them, took them inside for an examination, then let them go. Mystified investigators fround no logical way to debunk the story. Authorities said'whatever happened undoubtedly was a soul-searing experience for Hickson, a 45-year-old shipyard foreman, and his young visitor, the son of a family friend. It took place last Oct. 11 near the beginning of a great flap over Unidentified Flying the Gulf Coast. "I've done everything I can to prove I'm telling the Hickson said recently. A soft darkness had fallen as the men cast their lures. An oblong luminous blue blob circled, descended, hovered nearby. Hickson said he and Parker were too stunned to run, and in any case there was no place to flee. An a door, simply an indescribable open- in the side and three pale creatures came out, paralysed him. floated him into the craft, rotated him before an instrument resembling a big eye, then put him back on the pier. Parker, reported almost in shock when officers ques- tioned him three hours after the alleged encounter, said he blacked out as the creatures approached and remembers no more of it. "They weren't said Howard Ellzy, chief investiga- tor for the Jackson County sheriff's department. "Whatever it was. it was real to them." Ellzy s evaluation was later backed up by a polygraph test given both men. HOMES It's All Here Now! WE UNDERSTAND Buying a new mobile home is an important family decision. And it ought to be fun.

However, they also suggest that the leaders in Europe have been playing their own political games for domestic consumption in a gamble that the United States would not seriously retaliate. But Nixon appeared Friday to have called their hand by stating the U.S. commitment to European security will depend on real co-operation in political and economic matters. "Don't make the mistake of thinking Nixon and (U.S. State Secretary Henry) Kissinger hadn't worked out what was going to be one state department source said. In other words, Nixon was not going off the cuff when he said Friday: "We are not going to be faced with a situation where the nine countries of Europe (the Common Market) gang up against the United United States which is their guarantee for their security." Underscoring that he was going beyond rhetoric, the president said he had called off plans for a trip to Europe to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and to sign declarations marking new security, economic and political rela- tions. The president seems to feel it is time to make the NATO members realize "he isn't fooling an official said. "We want co-operation with Europe, the West is still the cornerstone of our foreign pol- icy, and Nixon acted to shock the Europeans into more realistic actions that will help us all." he explained. What is at stake is the level of American troop strength in Europe, a mechanism to handle such crises as the oil shortage and UK high levels of trade involving the alliance. Nixon said Friday he cannot be expected to hold off the already strong U.S. congressional pressure to cut the number of U.S. troops stationed in Europe there are not 315.000 troops without co-operation from the allies. "In the event that Congress gels the idea." he said, "that we are going to be faced with economic confrontation and hostility from the nine Common Market members, you will find it almost impossible to get congressional support for continued American presence at present levels on the security front." The officials also said there should be no confusion over remarks made by Kissinger earlier in the week concerning the relationship. While his words, made in the belief that no journalists were present, were ill- advised, the officials said Kissinger actually meant it when he stated that the "biggest problem" for U.S. foriegn policy is Europe, not the traditional adversaries. SUPER GERM: it could kill thousands OTTAWA (CP) Wary offi- cials of the federal health pro- tection branch believe world- wide abuse of antibiotic drugs is fostering conditions that could spring on mankind a vicious, killing super-germ. Misuse of antibiotics and other antibacterial chemicals in some countries already is creating a serious world health problem, and international. travel makes Canada vulnerable, says Or. A. B. Morrison, head of the protection branch. It isn't a crisis situation, but officials are worried about a potential hazard, Dr. Morrison said in an interview. It was easy "to .conjure up a science-fiction nightmare" of a virulent, drug-resistant bacteria killing thousands of people. The branch is concerned that bacterial strains resistant to antibacterial drugs are emerging from two sources. One is the excessive administration of antibiotics by medical doctors, and the other is the use of the same antibiotics as a growth hormone in cattle, swine and poultry. As a precaution, the branch has sent Dr. William Oliver to England to work in the World Health Organization's (WHO) international reference centre in London, from where he re- ports to the health protection branch on the latest worldwide findings. DEVELOP RESISTANCE Bacterial diseases have a tendency to develop resistance to an antibiotic drug under the best conditions, said Dr. Morri- son. As an example, many vener- eal-disease strains had become partially resistant to penicillin, a drug which at one time was practically 100-per- cent effective in VD treatment. In order to slow down devel- opment of resistant strains, antibacterial drugs should be used only in essential cases. Recent testimony before the U.S. Senate's health subcom- mittee contends that antibiotics are being overused, causing adverse reactions in many patients and creating dangerous hard- to-treat infections. WHO reported last month that 12.000 people died recently in Guatemala from an antibiotic-resistant shigella, micro-organism that causes dysentery. WHO also reported that Mexico than cases in a typhoid epidemic, and that' outbreaks of resistant salmonella and shigella have occurred in India, Vietnam, the United Kingdom and France. Dr. E. S. Anderson, director of WHO'S international refer- ence centre in London, said in a special report that the appearance of these drug- resistant organisms "is the result of prolonged and imprudent use" of antibiotics. Health officials have evidence that the development of the drug- resistant organisms is re- lated to the use of antibiotics as a growth hormone in livestock. One health official said the value of the growth hormones is questionable. In some cases, "they seem to take the place of good he said. move requ.res Today's man on GREAT-LOOKING SHIRTS Sport or dress in a wide variety of styles, patterns and colors Short sleeves, one chest pocket.
