('resident Nixon says he will announce his selections for two Supreme Court vacancies next week. He said Senator Robert C. Byrd and at least two women are among those under consid- eration.

Cmmpai-ed with B rczhne both Podgorny and K o s y gin have slipped in the Soviet pow- er equation but Kosygin "has slipped as one analyst put it. Canadians, the "most envir- onmentally conscious people in the will ultimately solve their country's environ- mental problems, Environment Minister Jack Davis says. In a statement concerning the first national environment week, Oct. 10-16, Mr. Davis said that in terms of the world's de- veloped nations, Canada is a leader in finvironm e n t a 1 re- forms. "Given sound legislation, and strong leadership at all levels, Canada will recover from the mistakes of the past." The New Brunswick Liberal party will choose a successor to Louis J. Rohichaud at a con- vention here this weekend but the fiery Acadian, who led the party for nearly 13 years, 10 of them as premier, is not expect- ed to take part. Mr. Robichaud, 46, won the Soviet oil officials in Alberta CALGARY (CP) Ten rep- resentatives of the Soviet oil and gas industry arrived Tues- day for meetings with Cana- dian businessmen and a look at petroleum installations.

"I don't think a black man in the country wouldn't admit that Muskie told the Evers said in a speech at Georgetown University in Washington. TORONTO (CP) Joan McLean is having mother-in- law trouble, and the Oct. 21 provincial election is the chief cause of it. Mrs. Me Lean is a Liberal while her mother-in-law, Cora McLean, is a New Democrat. The families of the two women share a duplex in Scarborough West, riding of NDP leader Stephen Lewis. The lawn in front of the du- plex has an assortment of election signs, some for Lib- eral candidate Frank Faubert and some for Mr. Lewis. "I think it's vulgar, it's so said Cora McLean Mon- day, referring to a fivc-by- scven-foot sign for Mr. Faub- ert that dwarfs the two-foot- square NDP sign on the front lawn. Despite Ihe battle for top billing on the lawn, the two women try not to take their political arguments too seri- ously. EDMONTON (CP) Control of school board finances should je placed with municipal coun- cils, the Alberta Chambers of lommerce said here. The recommendation was one of 19 contained in a report of the organization's educat i o n committee and was based on the opinions of 120 community ihambers throughout the prov- ince. "We are much concerned with the fact that school boards are mainly spending organizations and not directly responsible for raising tire money they spend." The report added that much as 35 per cent of total municipal spending goes to sup- port school board requisitions and that school buildings should be designed and built to pro- vide better return for the in- vestment. TEACHER SYSTEM The committee also said ten ure of office "must be re- moved" from teacher contracts and teachers paid under the merit system rating plan whicl recognizes Ihe accomplishments of the good and above average teacher. to ensure teachers' salaries arc sized to the exclusion of irrele- be increased so studenls will >ay "a much larger share of .he actual cost of their educa-jon." The commiltee also said a "strong effort" should be to time spent in the classroom. The chambers want irrelevant courses removed from the curriculum because basic education must be subjects. The business community must become more active in education because it basically provides the financial support and, "in future the Alberta responsibility for the planning and direction of the education system commensurate with its financial obligations in sustaining and developing it." Cancel CINCINNATI (API Physicians at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine denied Monday that their whole-body radiation treatment of cam-cer patients was done for the benefit of the Pentagon. "The interest of the Pentagon was simply a Dr. Edward A. Gall, college vice-president and medical centre director, told a news conference Monday. "When thsy learned the project was in action, it seemed to them that the information to be derived from whole-body radiation could be of value to them in determining what might happen to people involved in nuclear accidents." Democratic Senator treatmei Kennedy of Massachusetts said earlier that his health subcommittee would nvestigate the defence department for paying the medical school over 11 years to test the patients for information, that might be useful during a nuclear war. He charged the college with using persons with less than a sixth-grade education for guinea pigs for the Pentagon, without telling them the defence department wanted the results. DENIES CHARGES "I do not believe we; had guinea pigs in said Dr. Eugene L. Saenger, professor of radiology. "I think these patients were carefully investigated as to their reasons for t r e a t m c n t, and they report treated hi a careful and responsible manner. "I would like to emphasize that each patient was treated hi conformity with the regulations of the National Institute J said Saenger, noting that only 81 of 111 patient candidates took part in the program. He also said patients were given 24 hours to whether to accept treatment and that in most cases the program was explained to the patients in the company of a relative. A statement issued by the medical school said the treatment involved total bombardment of the body of the patient with cobalt-60 with varying degrees of intensity, depending on the patient's needs. Saenger said the program had met with some degree of success with the terminal patients, but added: "We do not want to unnecessarily raise the hopes ol patients with far-advanced cancer. But our patients are certainly comparable to the best results at other centres treating for advanced cancers." hits train PER1NTOSH (CP) Olvin Flohr, 68, of Edberg, was killed when the car he was driving collided with a Canadian National Railways freight train in this village 60 miles northeast of Red Stephen Tolvish, the 55-year- old unemployed bachelor who lived in a telephone booth for j the last Hi years, has a new home. Tolvish moved into the Glen- wood Boarding House in Phil- adelphia the other day and promptly got a shave and a j haircut. I "I feel 10 pounds j Tolvish said as he rubbed his chin after leaving Ihe barber's chair. Tolvish's lodgings were, found by a reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, who tel- ephoned Rev. W. E. Cook, pas- tor of the Enom Baptist Church. Mr. Cook made arrangements for Tolvish to move into the boarding house. Tolvish said he wouldn't miss his telephone booth in north- east Philadelphia. A close confidant of the late Egyptian President Gamal Ah- dc INasscr reports that the So- viet Union turned down Nas- ser's request for bombers and missiles during the 1958 Iraqi crisis because Moscow feared Egypt might start a war. The revelation is made by Mohammed Hassanein Heikal, one of Nasser's closest friends, in his biography of Nasser be- ing serialized in the London Sunday Telegraph. Heikal says the late Nikita S. Khrushchev, then Soviet pre- mier, told Nasser in a blunt let- ter after the crisis had passed1.

New charges hurled against hospitals LONDON (CP) New allega-1 tions were made today that hos-1 pitals in London have been j carrying out experiments on pa- tients which have no relation to the treatment the sick persons require. The charges were voiced by Dr. .lohii a family phy- sician in Ihe London district of Fulham. One of the four prominent hospitals M a c R a e mentioned quickly issued a statement say- ing that "we know nothing of any such experiments." But The Evening News, in an editorial, called for an investi- gation into the allegations made by MacRae and- another physi- cian, Pr. Maurice Pappworth. Two hospitals named by Pappworth, a Harlcy Street con- sultant, also denied the charges of '-guinea pig" experiments j made against ihcm. THIKI) TO S'I'll' TIIKM Macllac, 5.1, said unjustified experiments had been carried out on his patients and he cited his efforls at stopping them. One such incident involved the off of fluid from a baby by way of a needle inserted in the skull. M.idtac alleged. lie ii-fiucd that this procedure was "completely unjustified." He also charged that he saw a patient in one of the London h o s p i t a Is walking around a ward with tubes in her arm which bore no relation to her treatment. Dr. Derek Stevenson, secre- tary of the British Medical As- sociation, said allegations of the kind made by Pappworth "are useless" if made without evi- dence. Pappworth said patienls dying of cancer at two London hospi- tals had been used for experi- mental work on liver disorders. William Molloy, an opposition Labor HP, said he will ask Health Minister Sir Keith .lo- seph for a full investigation into the allegations.
