Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Smoke switchers increase By JANE E. BRODY New Vork Times Service NEW YORK Many heavj cigarette smokers who switc to cigars may actually increase the risk to their health instea of lowering it, according to tb findings of a study in London rer Freed PoW tells story MONTREAL (CP) Marc Cayer, a prisoner of the North Vietnamese for five years, says in a book describing his ex periences in Vietnam that he far from, being an adven- turer when he left his home in St. Raymond, Que. In the book, Prisonnier Au in Vietnam Mr. Cayer described how he lefi his home in October, 1957, to travel to Washington and sign on as an agronomist with Inter- national Voluntary Services. "It was the first time, at the age of 24, that I had ever boarded an airplane. I wasn'l an adventurer at all." Early in the book, published Tuesday by Montreal publisher Ferron Editaur, Mr. Cayer re- calls the darkness of the jungle as he was inarched into North y'etnam following his capture jr. South Vietnam. "There is no sun in the Viet- namese jungle. The tree foliage is so dense that it cuts ou: the light almost completely, creat- ing in the undergrowth 911 eter- nal penumbra you could almost touch, it was so hot and hu- mid." The darkness remains a sym- bol for Mr. Cayc- in his first- person narrative describing his capture, the march north and bis imprisonment. He was released by the North Vietnamese earlier this year following the signing of the Paris peace agreement. The 175-page bock, written in French by La Presse reporter Yves Leclcrc from tape- recorded interviews, is printed in a first edition oL copies and sells for No English-language edition bss been planned so far.

IN-STORE DEMONSTRATION Saturday, May 26 The study, which followed seven smokers through the switch from cigarettes to ci- gars, indicated that all seven continued to inhale when they smoked cigars and all reached the same high blood levels of carbon monoxide that they had while smoking cigarettes. A high level of carbon monoxide, which impairs the blood's ability to carry oxygen to body tissues, has been im- plicated as an important factor in the development of athero- sclerosis (hardening of the art- The authors of the study, published in the current issue of the journal Lancet, point out that the "tars" in cigar smoke contain more potent cancer- causing substances than cig- arette tars. "It is therefore pos- they conclude, "that ci- gar smokers who inhale might actually run a greater risk than those who continue to smoke cigarettes." "On present evidence, no en- couragement should be given to heavy cigarette smokers to change to they report- ed. They cited a previous sur- vey Which showed that about half of former cigarette smokers who used to inhale a fair amount still do so on changing to cigars. They also r.cted that even if the smoker does not inhale, cigar smoke is more readily absorbed through ;he lining of the mouth than is cigarette smoke. The study was conducted at central Middlesex hospital by T. Cowie, R. W. Sillett and K. P. Sail. The seven subjects had .heir blcod tested several times over the course of eight hour ceriods while they smoked .heir normal amount. SEEK BAN Five of the seven men stud- ed switched to so-called minia- ure cigars, similar to the little cigars that are packaged like cigarettes. The House commit- ee on interstate and foreign commerce is currently holding tarings on proposed legisla- ion to ban TV advertising of ittle cigars, which have be- come heavy sellers in the last ew years.

By DAVE THOMAS LONDON (CP) A dramati expansion of domestic rapeseec production which could turn Britain into an exporter insteac of a major importer of the oil grain is predicted by a big Brit ish crop dealer. Sank hikes lending rates NEW YOHK (AP) -Chase Manhattan Bank raised its prime lending rate from seven to 7JA per cent today, touching cff the fifth industry-wide in- crease in the rate this year. The increase was seen as an anti-inflationary influence, since it presumably would curb busi- ness expansion somewhat by in- creasing the cost of some loans to big companies. Banks which quickly followed the Chase move included Ma- rine Midland and Manufac- turers Hanover Trust Banks of New York, as well as First Pennsylvania Corp., parent of Philadelphia's largest bank. Chase and other banks In- dicated their increases were linked to recent moves by the Federal Reserve System aimed at tightening credit and con- trolling inflation. Secrecy practices suggested WASHINGTON (AP) -Citing abuses in the present system, a bipartisan congressional com mittee has recommended an overhaul in government secrecy practices. In a report released Wednes- day night, the group said a two- year study had revealed heavy over-classification, accumula- tions of hundreds of millions o: classified papers and estimatec costs of more than million a year to guard, handle, store, transport and declassify mate- rial. A system which does not pun- ish officials who "play it safe by adds im- measurably to the proliferation of classified documents, gradu- ally weakening and eventually destroying the integrity and ef- fectiveness of the entire sys- the report said. "These officials should be identified on documents they classify; they should be held strictly accountable for their classification judgments; and they should be disciplined for abuse of their authority." Wlieat prices factor in meat costs EDMONTON (CP) Meat prices will remain high as long as the market for wheat is good, Unifarm president Dob- son Lea said today. Farmers prefer growing wheat to feed grain, and high- er feed grain prices due to lim- ited supply necessitate higher meat prices, the president of the Alberta farmers' organiza- tion said in an interview. Canada has been buying feed grain from Argentina, Australia and New Zealand but prices are going up on the in- ternational market, he said. Troop cutback SAIGON (AP) The South Vietnamese government will demobilize troops by the end of the year, the defence ministry announced. It would be this first reduction of Sai- gon's armed forces since the 1968 Tet offensive. On the books, the armed forces now to- tal 1.1 million men and women. An agriculture department spokesman confirmed Wednes- day that the rapeseed harvest is expected to increase sig- nificantly but he would not com- ment on the forecast of Quenby Price Ltd. that it will be 16 times the current level by 1978. Edward Green, rapeseed spe- cialist for the company, esti- mated that production will double to tons this year and in five years may rise to than twice existing British requirements for processing into cooking oils and margarine. Canadian exports to Britain totalled more than million last year, making up about one- fifth of the tons im- ported from, all sources. "There is an export posi- bility for the United Kingdom Green contended. BIGGER MARKET SEEN But he quickly qualified the statement by adding that Brit- ish demand conceivably may double within five years to ab- sorb an expanded harvest. Even if Britain stops buying overseas rapeseed, a growing demand on the Continent would assure Canadian farmers of continuing European sales. The relative early stage of the rapeseed market makes it difficult to plan long-range pro- duction, he said, but all in- dications are that the world de- mand will push upwards for some time to come. "Good, solid Canada" will be required by European buyers, said Green, rather than some of the "politically-unstable" devel- oping countries whose ability to maintain a strong supply of ra- peseed is a cause of concern. He said his company is gam- bling somewhat on future de- mand from the food industry: "We have no commitment yet from any new buyers." "Oil usage is very, very low lere because of the resistance of two or three edible oil mak- ers, largely based on their fear of erucic acid.' But, he added, by next year nearly all of the British crop will be of a low-acid strain de- veloped in France. MINIMUM USE Britain currently relies on ra- >eseed for only five per cent of ts edible oil needs, compared with 15 per cent in France. "Once we've gotten rid of this acid thing, we'll be using rape oil much more Green said. Average price paid British ra- peseed growers last year was a ton but, in agree- ment with Common Market pol- icy, an "intervention floor price" of, a ton will be maintained by the intervention board. The price will be kept from falling below the floor level by the buying up of sur- plus stock. The floor price is to be gradually raised to a ton by 1978. Green said rapeseed has been, until recently, merely a "break crop" for grain farmers resting their cereal fields but now is being treated as a cash crop.
