Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, October 16, Chemist, astronomers 'A Ita. to gain little awarded Nobel prizes I from transit STOCKHOLM (AP) An American chemist who pio- neered the development of plastics and two British radio astronomers were awarded Nobel prizes in chemistry and physics Tuesday. Paul Flory, 64, professor of chemistry at Stanford Univer- sity since 1961, was cited "for his fundamental achievements, both theoretical and ex- perimental, in the physical chemistry of macrornole- substance of mod- ern plastics and many biologi- cal compounds. He receives a cash award of The Bntons, Sir Martin Ryle, 56, and Antony Hewish, 50, were the first astronomers awarded the physics prize in the 70-year history of the Nobel awards. They will share the prize.' Flory, reached by reporters at his home on the Stanford campus, said he was "over- whelmed" by the award but felt it "a bit unfair for one person to be singled out for recognition for advances in the science of macromolecules in recent years Of Flory's work, the academy said: "For nearly 40 years that Flory has been ac- tive as a research scientist, the chemistry of macromolecules has devel- oped from what, theo- retically speaking, was a primitive discipline to the highly advanced science of today. AH this time Flory has remained the leading researcher in this field and this demonstrates his excep- tional standing as a scien- tist." Flory mapped the structure and behavior of macromolecule chains by introducing new concepts of an ideal temperature state and a universal constant for polymer properties, both named after him. He was also the first to discover how a growing molecule chain can transmit its growing power to another and then stop growing itself. Flory received his doctorate from Ohio State University in 1934 and worked at industrial laboratories before joining Stanford in 1961. Ryle and Hewish, colleagues at the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University in England, were cited by the Koyal Swedish Academy of Sciences "for their pioneering research in radio-astrophysics.'' The two used radiotelescopes to study how dying stars turn into vast, dense magnetic fields called white dwarfs, neutron stars, pulsars, quasars and invisible black holes. Their work refined the theory of the expanding un- iverse, and sustained Einstein's theory of relativity. Their technique opens up the possibility of contact with possible intelligent creatures in outer space. EDMONTON (CP) Alberta will derive few benefits from investment in the Urban Transportation Development Corporation, Werner Schmidt, leader of the provincial Social Credit party, said Tuesday. Alberta's, as yet undefined, monetary commitment to the corporation is a subsidy to eastern Canadian cities to help solve their urban transportation problems, he said. Mr. Schmidt said Edmonton and Calgary are not big enough urban centres and will not benefit from any new technology developed by the agency. He also question whether the Progressive Conser- vative government had given the corporation a blank cheque or had decided on a limit to its involvement. Alberta will have to invest million, an amount equal to Ontario's qommitment, if it is to have a deter- mining influence on the affairs of the agency, Mr. Schmidt said. B.C. insurance to cost less Poor Soviet harvest hinted VICTORIA (CP) Most British Columbia motorists will pay less next year for coverage under the provin- cial government's compulsory automobile insurance plan because of territorial equalization discounts, Tran- sport Minister Robert Strachan announced Tuesday. He told a news conference that rates and coverage limits in effect this year, Autoplan's first year of operation, will re- main the same for 1975-76 but the cost of the insurance will be reduced through applica- tion of the discounts. The discounts will vary, ac- cording to six different territories in the province and will apply to all motorists ex- cept those in Victoria, whose rates, Mr. Strachan said, will continue to be the lowest in the province. The discount will apply to all private passenger cars and light trucks and will be sub- tracted from the present premium level. Mr. Strachan also said all commercial and recreational vehicles throughout the province will receive a flat 20 per cent discount to be deducted from the present premium. MOSCOW top Soviet trade official abruptly blocked attempts Tuesday by reporters to ques- tion visiting U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon on the Soviet grain harvest, prompting speculation that the Soviet crop may not be as good as expected. Simon mentioned that he had discussed the grain figures with Soviet officials, but when an American reporter tried to question him further, Vladimir Akhimov, deputy Soviet foreign trade minister, cut him short and asked for another question. Observers noted that the final grain results would by now be known, and such a dis- People love us for a number of reasons. Here's just one. Zenith 6-6O14.

Before his meeting with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev Tuesday night, Simon said that it was in the interest of the U.S. to help the Soviets develop their own petroleum production. Expressing his belief that prices of petroleum would eventually drop, Simon said members of the Soviet American economic commis- sion with whom he met here did not discuss in detail two major projects for energy co operation between the two countries, involving gas deposits near Yakutsk in eastern Siberia and Tyumen in western Siberia. Pollution curb costs double HINTON, Alta. (CP) The potential cost of curbing pollu- tion at a North Western Pulp and Power Ltd. mill here have doubled over estimates of three months ago and a study on methods of easing emissions is not yet complete, a company official said Tuesday." Gordon Wilkinson, company controller, said in July the company would spend about million to reduce water and air pollution at the mill but now puts tfie figure at around million and says "costs are going out of sight." The company was ordered to clean up its air and water emissions by mid 1976 and report to the environment department on what work it would do this fall.
