Science Dimension, a publica- tion of the National Research Council of Canada, said the non-addicting, blocks the effects of heroin for Icng periods, has no known harmful side effects and is cheap and easy to make. The drug has been produced by Bristol Laboratories of Can- ada with research funds prov- ided by the research council through its industrial reesearch assistance program. Preliminary results of tests on addicted animals have been sent to Canada's federal drug authorities. Science Dimension said the tests are "one of a number of steps to be taken be- fore clinical testing on heroin addicts can begin." The journal said U.S. drug au- thorities already have granted permission [or testing in pa- tients. Small amounts of the drug eliminate the effects of mor- phine in less than 90 seconds. Half a milligram is effective for i 24 hours. Science Dimension said many other heroin antagonists pro- duce hallucinations and other side etfecls which made them unsuitable for use except in nar- cotic overdosagcs.

The officials showed that they were fully conversant with the details of the president's jand- slide victory when they spoke to correspondents at a diplomatic reception held while the final vote count was still being tall- ied.

Stanfield hails ECC suggestions By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Progressive Con- servative Leader Robert Stan- field late Thursday hailed cer- tain suggestions in the Econom- ic Council of Canada's annual review and said it added weight to much of what he had been stressing tliroughouf the fed- eral eleclion campaign. Mr. Stanfield, still looking strained from his seven-week campaign which resulted in Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's Liberal administra- tion losing 49 seats, said if the report had appeared in Sep- tember as expected Mr. Tru- deau might well have lost even more members. The Conservative leader said he was not accusing the coun- cil of deliberately holding back the report until after the fed- eral election, but he said the council should take pains to see that it is "above suspicion" in such matters. The report, which empha- sizes that tax boosts are not needed and that indeed the government might even be able to reduce taxes, was issued early Friday. Mr. Trudeau's government plans to hike personal income tax by three per cent starting Jan. 1. Mr. Stanfield nad promised to abolish the planned increase as well as reduce personal in- come taxes by four per cent for the last six months of 1972. Mr. Trudeau and other Lib- eral spokesmen criticized Mr. Stanfield's tax plans and said reductions would lead to in- creased inflation. The council appeared to deny this conten- tion. i, A three car collision In the ciiy shortly after 5 p.m. Thurs- day rcsullcd in damage. Police say a car driven hy John A.

If all continues well, mission control will fire the special apogee motors during the far phase Sunday afternoon and Anik then will settle into its permanent relationship with earth, ready to act as a "micro- wave station in the sky." Officials at mission control said Anik had undergone Its planned six-degree "re-orient- ation" during which the satel- lite was turned slightly during its perigee phase this morning. The Allan Park tracking sta- tion near Toronto and mission control headquarters here fired the Email hydrazenc jet thrus- ters that moved the 550-pound satellite into its new position. Anik, an Eskimo word mean- ing brother, is the world's first domestic communications satel- lite and will open a new phase cf telecommunications for Can- ada, especially for the North. Mission headquarters in Ot- tawa assumed control of the satellite about 17 minutes after the launch.

It had been expected that during the first orbit following launch the tracking stations might take a few minutes to lo- cate it if it were on an erratic path. Mr. Kowalik and his teams in four tracking stations will be making several "very critical manoeuvres" today land during the weekend as they ready Anik for the apogee motor firing (AMF) that will fix its relation- ship to earth.
