That moved to 109-108 in fa- vor of the Conservatives the fol- lowing day. Official tallies sub- sequently produced a 109-109 stalemate, than a 109-108 Lib- eral edge Nov. 6. Last Friday, a recount in lineup balance Drummond, Que., made it a 108-108 deadlock of the two big- gest parlies. A recount reversal in Ontario riding Wednesday put the Liberals ahead again 109-107.

Rescue hopes fade (CP) With fierce weather conditions, their health and time working against them, the four persons missing on an ar- ctic mercy flight for 10 days may have only a few extra ra- tions on which to pin their sur- vival hopes. The only positive factor work- Ing for the missing cluding two who are seriously extra rations. According to Gateway Aviation in Edmon- ton, owners of Lhe plane, the craft was equipped with a man- datory ralions kil containing food supplies for the eight avail- able seats. With only four persons on the plane, the rations should he able to go farther and may ef- fectively double the survival lime. The two sick persons are Neemee Mullrayok, an Eskimo woman in premature labor, ami 15-year-old David Kootook, who had an appendicitis attack. They were accomnanied by 27- year-old Judy Hill, an English nurse from the Spence Bay, N.W.T. nursing station.

Hormone drugs may be harmful HALIFAX (CP) Use o! hor- prescription drugs or as chemical additives in foods- is dangerous because all the possible side effects on the next generation are not yet known, a Dalhousie University medical professor sajd Thursday. Dr. H. Lawrence Vallet, a specialist in children's endo- crine diseases, said any hor- mones could have detrimental those used to prevent conception, stimulate growth or control acne. "There's no question that the ingestion of any hormone for any reason at any point of life, unless it is to replace a missing hormone, can be detrimental." Dr. Vallet told the Canadian Science Writers' Association the hormones used in the birth con- trol pills don't do any harm to the woman who takes them. And, if the woman stops taking Lhe pill before getting pregnant, there is no damage to the un- born baby because the hor- mones do not remain for any length of time in the woman's body. The problem might arise, however, if the woman was tak- ing the pill after she was preg- nant. "There are a large number of University senate fights ban move EDlvTONTON (CP) The University of Alberta senate yesterday that it intends to fight any possible government move to abolish the body. "The Worth Report recom- mended that the senate be abol- ished. We have to prove that they're said Fil Fras- er, a senate member and broal- casler. The senate, holding its an- nual fall meeting, decided to send the government a copy of a report completed in Febru- ary, 1972, on the role of the body. The internal report recom- mended expansion In senate activities supported by perma- nent staff. The first staff mem- bers, inclulmg an executive secretary, have been hired and the senate has established com- mittees on tenure and entrance requirements. In an accompanying letter to the provincial cabinet commit- tee on education, university chancellor Louis Desrochers said the senate is confident it can provide an "essential link between the university and the wider communily that supports it." U.S. seeks cut in contribution UNITED NATIONS United SlaLes introduced a reso- ulion In Ihe General Assembly Thursday which would reduce Is pot-Lion of Lhc UN's general >udget by million. It imme- diately ran into sliff opposition 'rom the Soviet Union, which said the U.S. should pay more, not less, of Lhe UN costs. Senator Gale McGee Lold the assembly's budgetary com- mittee the U.S. wants to impose 25-per-cent ceiling on ils con- tribution. It now pays 31.52 per cent. After the measure was in- -roduced, U.S. Ambassador George Bush tangled with So- viet delegate Vasilj Safrcnchuk. The Soviet representative said Jiat as the world's wealthiest country, the U.S. should be as- sessed a larger portion of the world body's budget. Safronchuk said the American proposal would contradict the principle approved at the first session o[ (lie General Assem- bly in 1945 that assessmenls should be based on the ability of a member to pay. Under that principle, he said the U.S. shouldpay 30.4 per cent of the current budget. But Bush replied heatedly that Ihe U.S. is by far the larg- est voluntary contributor to the UN's social and economic pro- grams, which are separate from the regular budget. CITES FIGURES Bush lold the committee the U.S. had contributed mil- lion voluntarily in 1970 com- pared with million given by the Soviet Union and added: "When Ihe U.S.S.H. lectures my country on who what io help, keep in mind these fig- ures." Canada has not yet spelled out ils final reaction to the American move, but External Affairs Minister Sharp has voiced general sympathy for the U.S. position. Elsewhere at the UN, the as- sembly's main political com- miLlee adopted several resolu- doctors who over-pre- some of them be- cause of pressure from the patients. Asked about the use of pros' loglandins as the "morning afler Lo prevent preg- nancy, Dr. Vallet said that i they work, that's fine. But if they don't work, these hor- mones have been given at the crucial development stage of the fetus and some abnormality could develop. Dr. Vallet said when asked if a woman who was given pros- toglandins should have an abor- tion if the drug did not work: "If it was my wife, I'd insist (on an Dr. Vallet and Ms co-workers at Dalhousie doing research into the hereditary defects that cause sex abnormalities.
