A doctor said it was diffi- cult to say if tlie diplomat would survive, hut the doctor believed lie could. One French diplomat theo- rized that the bombs were a forced drop from a damaged jet, but this diplomat added he was inside the residence at the time of Hie altack and did not see the plane. I did, and the low-tutting jet was not damaged. Several planes made sev- eral sorties. I saw at least three jets. The Canadian mili- tary attache here, a Maj. Dupuis, says be saw five or six over the city centre. Susini bad been greeting the Albanian ambassador out- side the residence when the bombs dropped. The Albanian escaped with lesser injuries. Another French diplomat said: "This happens in Viet- nam every day and the world pays no attention, Now it wril." A British attache said, "The United States has gone too he said. Kennedy said the ex- periments were conducted al the newborn unit Los Ange- le? County Hospital and were rer.ovted to him in an advance I copy of an arlicle to tie nub- I lishcd in World Magazine. As a result of the fxis Ange- les experiment and a Tuskegee la., study in which 200 black leu were denied treatment in study of syphilis, Kennedy' aid a health subcommittee he hairs will investigate life- jeriments on humans. He said the subcommittee viil hold hearings early next year. 'ROJECT DEFENDED In Los Angeles, Dr. Joan Hodgman, the physician w h o Consultant considered onductcd tlie infant sludy, de- ended the project, saying it vas conducted with pcudence. "It was a good scientific [tidy and it is now being ques- ioned after the tact for politi- cal reasons. Tlie rules Uiat ap- plied 14 years ago are not the same as today." Dr. Paul Wehrle, director of pediatrics at Los Angeles bounty-USC Medical Centre, said tliat at (he lime the study was conducted, newborn nurs- eries in hospitals across tlie United Slates were being pla- gued by an epidemic ol slaphylococcus Infections thai were lethal in many cases, par- ticularly among premature In- fants. Hodgman and Wehrle said the standard procedures at hos pitals all over the in 1958 was to administer penicil lin, streptomycin or phenicol to infants at risk. They said lour groups of in fants were selected for the Lc Angeles survey. Thirty-tw were in the untreated or uncon rolled groups, 3I) received chlo- amphcntcol, 33 received o wnicillin and streptomycin ombinalion and 31 received a .treptomydn penicillin clilo- combination. TESTS SURPRISE Wehrle said that much to ev- eryone's surprise, the results revealed thai the greatest num- of babies died in the two jroups that received chloram- >hcnicol. said that it has been known since 1951 that chloram- [ihcnicol has a severe toxic ef- fect on tissues lhat produce blood cells. He said using the drug seven years later raised an ethical is- sue. It might have been more appropriate to administer lesls to animals. Wehrle said lhat while It known that chloramphenicol was harmful lo the elderly, it was not there stilJ is no the drug was harmful to the blood formation of newborns. 1972 COLOR CLEARANCE ,95 EDMONTON (CP) Tlie Al- berta Liberal parly ts consid- ering hiring a consultant to en- quire into circumstances sur- rounding construction of the Al- berta Resources Railway, says Liberal party leader Bob Rus- sell. Mr. Riisscll said in a pre- pared release Hie independent inquiry was planned because the "Lougheed government has refused to act" on an earlier request for a judicial inquiry j into AHR. The consultant would cxanv e the routing of the railway long the section between Grande Cache and Grande Prairie which was washed out in June by a flood, he said. CNR engineers say costs of re- pair may run as high as S20 million. Mr. Russell said the consul- tant also would study the agree- ment between the CNR, which operates (he line, and the Al- iierla government. A decision lo extend the line north ap- peared sudden and may have involved compromises in its de- velopment or insufficient re- search into flood patterns along the Smoky, which had flooded. 19" RCA PORT.
