The Dutch delegate was grinding out his speech when our man at the United Nations and our correspondent that is, I marched in and sal down. The bo'.'ed Cosla Rican dele- gale cleaned his fingernails. Others were writing letters home. Within five minutes I was yawning. And then she came in. She was young and goodlook- Ing, wearing a red dress that exposed nice knees and long legs. She made her way to her desk and sat down near our correspondent, pulled out some papers and spread them out. I watched with great in- terest.

For 1973, DetToit sees even more sales, perhaps as many as 9.9 million. Tlie foreign-car makers were capturing heller than one of six new-car sales in the United Stales a year ago. However, a combination of detroit's own small cars and the govern- ment's currency changes, which raised import prices, foreign share 30 days of of-'its the ears were delivered, a 12 per cent gain over last year.

MEMORY IMPROVED BY COLD TORONTO (CP) A Univer- sity of Toronto psychologist says he has discovered that bee- lies' memories improve in colder temperatures. For yca-s. Tom Alloway lias been studying insects' ab'.iily lo learn and memorize in an Erin- cinlc College laboratory, and he has recently directed his efforls loward the common bec- i1. Mr. Alloway trains them in a T-shaped maze which Ihcy run thronph to escape a bright liphl beam beating down on Ihem. He has found [hat after lhe beetles lake the correcl exit six times in a row, they have been trained lo remcmlicr lhe path. However, Ihc psychologist said Ihc beetles will forget what Ihey have learned afler spend- ing five days in room temncra- turc. If they're kepi al alor Icmperalures for in days, Ihey remember "almost per- fectly." M Alloway said lie hc'lieVcs Ihe explanation lies in Ihc fact lhat cold tcmperalurcs put the insecls in a dormant slate. He [eels memory is transferred lo a permanent storage system from a lempo-ary storage sys- tem during (his period. poes on in man may be similar lo what goes on in in- sccls." Mr. Alloway said, add- ing if scionlisls knew what hap- prn.s al the biochemical level when learning occurs, it may be possible lo determine what goes wrong when disorders .such as menial illncrs occur.
