Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta When Someone Snores, Someone Else Suffers Tutirfay, May 19, 1970 THE LETHBRIOCE MEKALD 5 By JOHN FITZGERALD MELBOURNE (AP) When someone snores, some- one else suffers. A 3G-year-old Australian en- gineer, Ronald Carr, is only loo well aware of this. His wife, Jill, 36, and a busy mother of three, is his victim. But Ron Carr might have the answer. He lias developed a machine to deal with the problem by making even more noise. Carr doesn't claim his anti- snoring machine solves the problem. But helps the victim. Carr is an expert in noise research and control. His noise inches by seven from a new technique in noise control called sound conditioning. The idea is that irritating noises can be made more acceptable by introducing a soft back- ground noise. "The background noise is very faint and the person can still hear tire original noise clearly, but it becomes more says .Carr. "It is similar to t'he situa- tion when you walk into a dark room and someone shines a torch in your eyes. But if the lights are switched on, the torch doesn't affect the eyes anywhere nearly as much." Carr says his wife could not sleep because of his snoring, Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Memo- ries are better than money. You can't keep warm with a bill, but you can have a memory and no one can steal your memories from you. Life has enriched you boun- 'teously if you can look back and rememer You got what you paid for. Grandmothers rarely went to beauty shops. People ran out into Ihe front yard and looked up when they heard an airplane flying by. The only time children usually got an orange was when they were sick or it was Christmas. There were more walrus moustaches on men than there were on walruses. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capitol Furniture EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. Prideful citizens 'of a small town were pretty sure it was on the way to becoming a me- tropolis when its business sec- tion became larger lhan its cemetery. Most of the folks on a police- men's beat learned to call him by his firsl name. Any kid who couldn'l milk a cow or harness a horse was thought to be a bit backward. No mother had to take up yoga because bending over a washboard every Monday gave her more than enough exercise. The Saturday chore that boys hated most was carrying out the ashes from a coal-burning fur- nace. It always delayed the start of the baseball game. A juvenile delinquent was a lad who always insisted on play- ing marbles for keeps. When a schoolteacher1 rn ried, she had to resign her job. Everyone in the neighborhood felt like crying when the fire station retired its last horse. Those were the days member?

Says Mrs. Carr: "It doesn't stop him snoring, but it docs allow you to put up with it. He'll continue to snore whether he's on Us side or his back. We sleep in a double bed, but no amount of rib-dig- ging will stop him sire-ring." The noise box was devel- oped when an architectural firm wanted something to counteract the noise of a lot of people in the one office area. The Carr firm devised the machine which emits sounds ranging from rushing air to water falling on a metal roof. It effectively masks the nuis- ance noises. "At the moment, it costs about but we hope to bring the price down to about before we try to market the box through a manufac- turing says Carr. Says Mrs. Can-: "The noise resembles a faint fanning sound and I keep it under the bed. It has a volume control knob which you can vary ac- cording to how things are going next door. "It takes about a week to really get used to the noise, but after the first night you start to find the edge has gone from the snore." SEES BRIGHT FUTURE Carr says the noise box has many uses and sees his field as vital and complementary to that of the architect. "You get noises from the apartment next door, voices from above, and the penetrat- ing sound of flushing from other he says. "These tilings become very disturbing psychologically, particularly with difficult neighbors." Carr's efforts in the cause of snore relief, however, are not new. discarded of attacking snor- ing have included: Putting a pencil between the teeth of the snorer when the blast is deadly; pressing his or her chin back with the fin- gers; using a leather arm strap to prevent any turning over in bed and sewing a rub- ber ball to the back of night- wear. A British psychiatrist re- cently suggested fastening to pyjamas a tiny throat micro- phone connected to a small power unit and attached by wires to the sleeper's arm. The idea was that as the snorer snored, an electric im- pulse would be sent into Ihe arm. It wouldn't wake him but it could, possibly, set up a mental block against snoring. A Japanese doctor has put forward a theory that the more beautiful a woman the louder she snores. No one has disproved this. 'Green' Revolution In Full Swing LONDON (Heuters) rev- olution is spreading around the world, and almost everyone's encouraging it. It is known as the "green" revolution, which is resulting in an astounding increase in wheat and rice production because of new hybrid varieties. China has already planted miracle rice." known as IR-8, and many other countries will be sowing the new seeds when the weather is right. A number of nations which have tesled the high-yield grains doubled or trebled their harvest during the last year. But prophets of doom cling lo the view thai despite improved crops, the huge growth of the world's population at more than a year will lead to mass starvation within the dec- ade. The only answer is birth con- trol, they say. spe- cializing in another answer: Mexican dwarf wheat, IR-8 rice and other crops improved by genetic research. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization is con- vinced that the new varieties of grain repfesent the most hope- ful aspect of the world food sit- uation. Several developing nations had to import wheat or rice until they tried the new varie- ties. Within a year, their crops were so successful that they be- came exporters of the same grains. The green revolution did not happen overnight. Shortly after the Second World War, scien- tists began research into hybrid wheat, using a dwarf-type grow- ing in Japan. This variety, later named Norm 10, had been growing in Japan for years. American plant breeder S. C. Salmon brought the large-eared wheat back to the U.S. and crossed it with American varieties. RESULTS GOOD At the same time, uwarf wheat varieties were being de- veloped in Mexico at the Inter- national Maize and Wheat Im- provement Centre. Firsl results of Ihe American and Mexican experiments began to appear in the early 1960s. Altogether, some 400 wheat varieties were produced for commercial use by means of a Device Tested VICTORIA (CP) A sonar- drift buoy capable of transmit- ting underwater noises, espe- cially those from a submarine, to an aircraft on patrol is to be tested this spring. Twenty-two of the devices were developed and built by a group of scien- tists and technicians at the fed- eral government, Defence Re- search Establishment near here. The buoys, three-inch- thick aluminum tubes about 15 feet long, will be inserted in drift ice in the Arctic Ocean for the tests. BIG OPTICAL JOB VICTORIA (CP) Staff of the Dominion Astrophysical Ob- servatory here have a year-long job ahead of them, one thai can't afford a single mistake. They've just received a 73-inch, two-ton disc of glass, which after a year of painstaking pol- ishing and grinding with fine abrasives, will replace the 50- year-old mirror now used in the observatory's telescope. It calls for a steady hope to polish the disc to a surface ac- curacy of an inch. ROYAL RESERVE for outstanding flavour and distinguished service. BY huge gene bank. Today, the re- sult is known as Mexipak or Mexican dwarf wheat, basically a cross of Mexican and Japa- nese varieties. Scientists claim the new wheat strain has increased pro- duction in India by SO per cent and in Pakistan by 45 per cent. Mexico itself, once a wheat-im- porting country, increased the harvest from 10 to 40 bushels per acre and now is an export- er of wheat. The Wonder wheat enabled Lebanon to increase its normal yield by 200 per cent. The seed has scored similar successes in many other countries of Africa and Asia. Miracle had a similar history. The Internalional Rice Insti- tute at Los Banos, soutli of Ma- nila, developed IR-8 and even more advanced varieties known as IR-20 and IR-22. A team of international scien- tists work at the institute to continue the improvement of "miracle" rice for use mainly in Asia, which produces DO per cent of the world's rice. UN experts report that the dwarf rice yields up to nine tons per hectare (2.4 com- pared with traditional yields of from one to two tons per hec- tare Real Estate Case Probe Date Set EDMONTON (CP) An. in- quiry into the expulsion of an Edmonton real estate agent and into the administration of co- operative legislation will begin June 22.
