He said Hie Chicago study was "a retrospective study, so lists as a possible agiiuisl leukemia. The team, headed by Dr. Sol Bay nosenthal of the Univer- sity of Illinois, did so in report- ing results of its survey of leu- kemia death rates among thou- sands of children in Chicago in 1364 through 1969. The scientists said the involved the health records of black children from infancy through six years of who were vaccinated at birth ag; anc: net.

As a result the two points had become bot- tlenecks and the crowded condi- tions, particularly at peak times of the year, coupled with the unloading and reloading procedures, particularly hi cold weather, create more stress among the cattle than non-stop shipping. The non-stop trip would shorten total shipping time for feeder cattle by one day, he said, and would reduce stress cattle and the resulting shrinkage and decline in important considera- tion for the eastern buyer.

By the meant the body's natural defen- ces against invasion by dis- eases of various types. The theory behind using BCG as a possible treatment for can- cer is that BCG may stimulate the body's immunological c'-3- fences against such ills in an especially forceful way. The National Cancer In- stitute, sponsor of the inter- national conference, referred to the Chicago study and a similar one in Quebec in background material given reporters. The statement indicated the NCI feels the studies did not prove definitely that BCG can prevent leukemia. of letter bombs BALANCING ACT Fresno service station attendant Lawrence Banks has a unique way of carrying tires around the garage.

Rut King decided the short- He and long-range political risks were too great, both for the country and tor the Liberal party. Tlie discussions were terminated. Mr. Pearson says he approved of the decision. King never brought the matter before his cabinet. The first volume of Mr. Pear- son's memoirs, entitled to bo published Oct. 21 by the I University of Toronto Press i In it, the former diplomat and politician, now chancellor lot Carleton University and a i professor of international af fairs there, writes of his career until 1948, when he entered poli- tics. RANGES WIDELY Much of tlie book deals with Mr. Pearson's experiences working under three prim ministers-King, St. Laurent and R. B. Bennett, as an ex ternal affairs department olfi car here, as Canadian high1 commissioner in London and as ambassador in Washington. He writes that Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt managed Mackenzie King successfully during the Second World War by nattering his ego. His reaction to this treat- ment was all they could desire in terms of friendly under- Janding. As long as it seemed to Canadians that he was one of a Big Three, neglect lo consult and inform him did not appear to matter quite so much." King first suggested that Mr. Pearson quit the foreign serv- I ice and go into politics while i the two rode in a horse-drawn carriage through the Bob de Boulogne, in Paris, in August 1316. Mr. Pearson says he had no desire to leave the civil service j i then, or later, lo serve in a j cabinet headed by King. He moved into polilics and became minister of external affairs when Mr. St. I.aurent suc- i cceded King in 1943. SOUGHT AS AII1B Early in 1MO, Mr. Pearson w.-ilcs, the late Gen. A. G. L.

LESTER PEARSON centred calculation, of kindness ,nd rxithlessncss, of political vi- j Jon and personal pettiness which so many who worked for him found disconcerting." j Of H. B. out-! going, more straight-forward than his more subt'e and com- plex predecessor. His reac- tion to the defects of others, when he delected them, was i frank and expressive. I do not recall that Mr. King ever stormed. Where Mr. Bennett would burst into flames, Mr. King would smoulder." Of Louis St. have never known a finer gentleman, or one who had a greater sense of public duty. While his Irish temperament could occa- sionally show in bursts of Iran-' sitory anger, he was a man of the greatest courtesy and kird- iiness, considerate of others, palien', fair-minded and unders- tanding."
