More than 20 people were killed and WCSOHWfe WS" hundreds injured as buildings were flattened to piles of rubble. Dozens of homes were destroyed with the Lubbock district being declared a disaster area. Auto Trade Pack To Be Exclusive OTTAWA (CP) Industry Minister Jean-Luc Pepin said today application of the pattern of the United States-Canada au- tomotive trade pact to other in- dustries is unlikely. Answering questions in the Commons miscellaneous esti- mates committee, he said the automobile industry is unique in that the major companies in- volved operate on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border. Thus it had been possible to work out the 1965 pact whereby continental operations were shared out on a rational basis, Canadian branch plants special- izing hi manufacture of some products for the North Ameri- can market instead of duplicat- ing U.S. output m short produc- tion runs for tlie Canadian mar- ket alone. Wliile the industry depart- ment is anxious to encourage higher productivity through ra- tionalization in all secondary in- dustries, Mr. Pepin said, the common U.S.-Canada ownership of the auto industry was not present in others.

Chronic Headache Sufferers Plentiful By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: Some people throughout the world suffer from chronic headaches, often of mysterious origin. A new medical theory holds that a majority of such cases may result from overlooked neck injuries and often can be cured by putting the patient in traction. Do yuu bite your finger- nails? That may cause thsm to grow up to 20 per cent faster than normal, thus giv- ing you still more to chew on. There are 30 known hairless genetic the world. Twenty-nine of them are in Canada. AFFECTED BY WEATHER The weather affects us all. Here's what happens, for ex- ample, as the barometer falls during a period of low air pressure: Most people are more forgetful, worker effi- ciency drops, lost-and-found departments are busier, bank clerks make more errors, and absenteeism climbs.

Thirteen countries have a lower infant mortality rate, and in 17 countries men live longer. Fewest newborn ba- bies die in Sweden, and it is there also that life expectancy at birth is years. Overcoming handicaps: Blind Ray Charles, the popu- lar Negro entertainer, can do more than sing and play the piano. According to a profile in the New Yorker magazine, he can type 70 words a min- ute, is a good cook, and can play winning chess. Big problem: At least one in every planetary sys- tems, a Cornell scientist esti- mates, contains "a detectable civilization." The big question is whether planet earth is one of them.

SHIELDS SOURCES NEW YORK (AP) Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller signed into law.T.vXv a bill guar- anteeing a reporter the right to keep his sources of information confidential.
