"There may be other Mr. Phillips said. Dr. research merely showed that bllghlec potatoes and deformed babies occurred in the same areas about the same times, he said. Perhaps whatever caused blight olso caused the defects. "It would be unfortunate if there were damage to the potato industry on the bask of he said. "It may raise unwarranted fears Dr. Henwick said in the interview that several studies had shown the relationship between deformed babies and diseased potatoes.

For the first time, the Sout Vietnamese are getting four-en gine C-130 transport planee, Both Ihe U.S. command m the 7th Air Force refused t discuss the military aid pro gram. But informed source said it goes well beyond th equipment originally plannec for in the Vlclnamlzatlon sched ule. The draft peace agreement which calls for withdrawal o all American troops from Viet nam wilhin 60 days of signing stipulates that the Unitei States can replace existing mil itary eauipment only on a one to-on basis with weapons o the same characteristics unde international supervision. Anticipating the agreemen will be signed soon, the Penta gon is sending score's of trans ports into Saigon from bases ii the United States carrying mill equipment including ar mored personnel carriers ant Chinook helicoplers.

"But we've stopped advertising in Kamnala." The dwindling [low of prospective Asian immigranls has prompted the Canadian government lo cancel three charter flights from Kampala to Montreal one each on Nov. 6, 7 and 8.

"Considering estimates that ranged from to as high as 85.000 Asians, we're beginning to see the lower figure as more realistic." He was commenting on recent reports from Uganda that the flow of Asians seeking entry to Canada has been reduced to a trickle. This has prompted some immigration officials here to suggest that many Asians could be stalling in hopes the Nov. 8 deadline might be rescinded. Countries who offered to take a proportion of the evicted Asians have been braced for a larger onslaught of immigrants. As of Wednesday, Canada has issued visas, with 200 still awaiting medical examinations and 600 applicants still lo be US. officials in Kampala reported that with a week remaining before President Amin's deadline, the places offered by the United States lo stateless Asians may not be barred BUENOS AIRES (Router) -Argentina's national electoral tribunal upheld Wednesday Ihe validity of a decree which would bar former president Juan Peron from running for the presidency again.
