Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Peacekeeping machinery breaks down SAIGON A walkout by the Viet-Cong delegation from the Joint Military Com- mission charged with implementing the Vietnam ceasefire means a breakdown of the peacekeeping machinery and an ominous sign for hopes of reducing hostilities. In the opposing Vietnam parties are not negotiating for the first time since the agreement on ending the war was signed in Paris Jan. 1973. In the South Viet- namese government suspended its participation in political talks with the Viet Cong in Paris because of what it cited as increased violations of the ceasefire. Neither the military negotiations in Saigon nor the Paris talks reported any progress in implementing the major provisions of the except for the exchange of prisoners. But observers said that as long as Saigon and Viet Cong dele- gates were there was hope something might be accomplished. Brig.-Gen. Phan Hoa head of the South Vietnamese delegation to the two-party said the Viet Cong walked out of a meeting of the chief delegates Friday and handed him a note saying they will no longer participate until diplomatic privileges and immunities granted them under the Paris agreement are restored. The Saigon government has isolated the Viet Cong from the cancelled their weekly news conferences and cut their telephone lines. Hiep says he has agreed to discuss privileges and immu- nities but that each time the subject has been put on the the Viet Cong stray from the issue and launch what he calls propaganda attacks on the Saigon government. Neither the Saigon political delegation in Paris nor the Viet Cong military delegation in Saigon has been indicating that there is still hope the talks might be resumed. The Viet Cong side could not be reached for comment. Hiep says the walkout does not signal the end of th JMC but that the situation is Fighting has continued. The South Vietnamese command lists more than South Vietnamese troops wounded or missing. It says that nearly North Viet- namese and Viet Cong have been killed. The political negotiators in Paris have yet to carry out such major provisions of the agreement as the establishment of a council of national reconciliation and concord to organize free and democratic elections.

LABELS COMPULSORY The new regulations will also require more extensive information on both the seat and its carton as well as installation instructions. As of Nov. 1. seats must be labelled as complying with government safety stand- ards. Former regulations for chil- dren's car seats required only that the seats withstand a 1.000 pound static pull. Department officials say only one of about 50 children's car seat models currently on the market even comes close to the 18-inch head movement General Motors model for infants up to 20 pounds. The Canadian Standards Association recommends only that model and one by Ford for children up to 50 pounds. The new regulations are vir- tually unchanged from propos- als Mr. Gray announced March 4.

Cancer rate lower among mentally sick persons Md and cancer re- searchers were urged Friday to join forces to explore the reason for the relatively low incidence of cancer among the mentally especially schizophrenics. A New York psychiatrist. Dr. Rene said this phe- nomenon has been overlooked by scientists and might provide a lead toward improved cancer treatment. Such a systematic exploration might lead to un- covering new chemical weapons against cancer based on the biochemistry of the said Dr. Mastrovito of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre. At the same he reported new evidence to support one of the theories that there is an emotional component involved in the onset of human in other there are personalities. He said his findings support the theory which holds that per- sons most likely to get cancer are those who are serious and and tend to control their impulses and emotions. the theory persons who are im- pulsive and outgoing emotionally are much less likely to be cancer victims. The psychiatrist made the comments in addressing the closing session of the world's first conference on regression of cancer The meeting was sponsored by the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and the American Cancer Society.
