Okuma Fumi, Amy and families 3450-10 EDMONTON (CP) David Walker, of the provincial agri- culture department said today the' United States move to limit grain exports could have disastrous effects on inter- national trade. Mr. Walker said in a state- ment that if world grain prices rise substantially above U.S. prices, countries having to pay the higher prices might take retaliatory action against the U.S. The prospect of a trade war during a fragile global eco- nomic situation was not a pleasant one. Mr. Walker said President Ford's decision to turn down a grain deal arranged between two U.S. grain export firms and the Soviet Union for 91 million bushels of corn and 34 million bushels of wheat makes it apparent that the U.S. now will assess all major export sales. "This individual assessment of grain deals will add further Pantyhose saves more than legs VANCOUVER Pantyhose may have saved million worth of electronic equipment a spokesman for British Columbia Tel said Wednesday. Dozens of pairs of pantyhose were filled with silica'gel and used to mop up water that flooded long-distance equipment Tuesday. "We are concerned about said a company spokesman. "But it may be several months before we know the full effects. So far, there doesn't appear to have been any perma- nent damage." The water came when a fire valve was. ac- tivated by vibrations from a jackhammer be- ing used "by. a construc- tion worker" next door. Hairdryers, fans and the pantyhose were all used in the makeshift mop-up operation. The company said the dryers might be raffled among employees.. No effect EDMONTON (CP) Any restrictions the United States might impose on Canadian cattle imports would have no immediate effect on domestic market'prices, Jim Dawson, livestock market analyst for the Alberta agriculture department, said Wednesday. The U.S. government is ex- pected to announce details of its import restriction plan next week. Youth jailed for charges A Lethbridge youth who pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence was sentenced in provincial court Wednesday to six months in jail. Court was told Brett B. Bailey, 19, 1929 21st St. S., entered a Lethbridge home with a white picket from a fence in his hand. Two residents of UK home were later found hiding under beds by police. L FLUORIDATION Medical Doctors Against It has often been said that all reputable doctors endorse fluoridation or there is no medical argument against fluoridation. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Thousands of physicians, dentists and scientists are speaking out against it in ever-increasing numbers, from all parts of the world. Here are just a few: Dr. James Thornton, PH.C; D.D.S. New York City said: "Fluoridation threatens the safety of your drinking water. One would be forced to drink the chemical from the cradle to the grave when its intended effect is only on children up to 8 years of age or so." Or. Edwin Langrock, consulting obstetrician, Beth Israel Hospital New York said: "I do not wish the government to tell me what I should eat or drink. If the person next door wishes her children to have fluoride, let her put it in their water but don't make me drink it because she wishes her children to have it" Or. Francis Heyroth of the Kettering Institute, Cincinnati, Ohio is in favor of fluoridation. Yet when testifying under oath at Congressional hearings to the question, "would you give fluoridated water to a diabetic, he NO my advice would be that he drink FLUORIDE FREE SPRING WATER." Dr. M.B. Dymond, former Minister of Health, Province of Ontario said: "My objection to mass fluoridation is its effect on older people1." No. 67 Journal of the House of Representatives 72nd Legislature, Lansing, Michigan, Friday, April 24, 1964 (page 1582) this report "Fluoride is a poison. The one-part-per-million provides no margin of safety. Illnesses from fluoride in water and accute chronic fluoride intox- ication have been reported in numbers." Fluoridation is compulsory mass medication for a non-contagious disease. uncertainties to international price developments." The export refusal by the U.S. would depress the American grain and oilseed market in the snort run but will not change the fundamen- tal supply and I demand situation. The international grain situation was tight and there were only limited quan- tities of grain for sale at any price. Prices were expected to continue strong. Mr. Walker said that if cur- rent labor disputes are settled promptly and further dis- ruptions do not occur Canada has the capacity to export about 650 million bushels of grain and oilseeds this crop year. This was slightly more grain than would be available for export from the 1974 crop. Tidal Basin car incident may hurt congressman Banker's family released after ransom payoff VOTE AGAINST... X LETHBRIDQE SAFE WATER COMMITTEE AVWHM North Phone 327-7142 YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) An Ypsilanti bank manager's wife and two children were freed unharmed today after the manager was forced to rob his own bank to ransom them, the FBI reported. Mrs. Richard Green and her children, Erick 7, and Annette, 9, were released at a hotel about 15 miles west of here about a.m. after begin held hostage all night by four men. Mrs. Green called her hus- band at the bank after being released and was picked up by police. A search is under way for the men who kidnapped them. The release came more than two hours after Green took what was described as "several thousand dollars" from the Ypsilanti Township branch of the Ypsilanti Savings Bank and left it at a secluded rural drop point. The FBI said four men sur- prised the family Wednesday night in their Grass Lake home, about 40 miles from Ypsilanti. They were tied up all night, Green Said. This morning, Green was released and told to go to the bank and get all the money he could from the first teller that reported for work. Bank officials said Green had the teller clear out the vault. He then took the money to the drop point, returned and called bank President Clarence Utley, who called police. Utley said he received the telephone call from Green at 8a.m. Utley said the bank had lost several thousand dollars in the robbery, but did not elaborate. Air Canada's return seems sure If all goes well, an Air Canada jet will land here in September, 1978, reinstating trans continental service through Lethbridge. That was the hope express- ed today by AM. Sieve Kotch and Dennis O'Comell, city business development direc- tor, just back from meetings in Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa with Air Canada and Ministry of Tran- sport officials including Tran- sport Minister Jean Marchand and Yves Pratte, chairman of the board of Air Canada. If events progress according to schedule, they said, Air Canada will soon ask the MOT for a service to Lethbridge by 1978, the MOT will ask the treasury board to include an estimated million runway expansion at Kenyon Field in its 1S75 budget, construction will begin hi 1976 and be com- pleted in 1978. However there's been no commitment from Air Canada as yet on when it will make the request, but top officials of the airline and the ministry gave assurances it's no longer a question of whether, but when Lethbridge will get tran- scontinental service, they said. Aid boosted EDMONTON (CP) An' increase in travel subsidy and supplemental for Alberta dairymen par- ticipating in the Alberta Japan dairy exchange program was announced Toes- day by agriculture minister Hugh Homer. Dr. Homer said that there are eight Japanese dairymen and one instructor in Alberta participating in (tie exchange but there are no Albertans in Japan. He said toe main ob- stacles preventing Alberta dairymen from going to be travel costs and low wages paid in Japan. Green, 33, has been with the bank since 1969, when he join- ed the firm as a trainee. WASHINGTON (AP) Wil- bur Mills spent at least part of the evening drinking, dining and dancing with friends hours before he was involved in a bizarre incident in which one of his women companions was rescued from drowning by police. The manager of a Washington nightclub where the Arkansas Democrat has been a frequent patron said Mills, three women and another man were in the es- tablishment for about three hours Sunday night. During that tune they had dinner and drinks which cost about in all and then left, said George Bertran, 47, man- ager of the Junkanoo restaurant on fashionable Connecticut Avenue. None of the group appeared intox- icated when they left about p.m., he said. The whereabouts of the in- fluential 65-year-old congress- man, chairman of the tax- writing ways and means com- mittee, remained a mystery between that hour and the 2 a.m. incident at the Tidal Basin near the Jefferson Memorial. Mills himself remained in seclusion late Wednesday as the U.S. Park Police disputed a claim Mills made through aides that he was not present at the incident and knew nothing about it. Mills is involved in a re- election campaign and facing his stiffest challenge in years from a woman Republican candidate. As recounted by police, the Tidal Basin incident occurred when two policemen stopped a 1973 Lincoln Continental that was travelling at an unreason- able speed with lights out at 2 a.m. Monday. Five persons spilled out. The car was regis- tered to Mills, police said. They said one of the men identified himself to police as Mills and the police report de- scribed this man as "in- toxicated." His face was scratched and bleeding, they said. While police questioned the group, a woman identified as Anabella Battistella, crying and shouting hi mixed Spanish and English, ran to a bridge and leaped into the water. She was rescued by a policeman who dived in after her. Mrs. Battistella was ad- mitted to hospital but later released and reporters who called her apartment Wednes- day were told by another woman that she was sleeping under sedation.
