Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20-THE LETHBRIDQE October Interpreting the news Critics pick holes in Ford's WIN plan WASHINGTON (CP) Even his most severe critics agree when President Ford describes his fellow Americans as the world's wildest wasters of energy and food. Where they dissent, is over his proposals for combatting the twin problems of conser- vation and inflation. It won't be done, they say, by promoting red-and-white "WIN" buttons and flags and unrealistic conservation proposals. The "WIN" buttons, one Capitol Hill reporter describes as smacking of "a high-school election for presi- dent of the senior left-handed reference to the fact that Ford lost just such an election in his youth. The for "Whip Inflation designed to foster a spirit of QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Prnital Mechanic 303-SttiStrMtSo. Metealf Building PHONE 328-7684 saving and conservation among Americans. The flags have been likened to the for flags that once flew over war- time shipyards or to the "El- mer the Safety Elephant" flags that adorn schools with a creditable traffic safety program. Ford's proposals, generally, have been cautious, uncon- troversial ad- the fami- ly budget, shop for bargains, plant a vegetable garden, turn down the thermostat, drive less and try not to become ill because illness cuts produc- tivity and strains the family budget. To critics who have describ- ed such proposals as a call to bite the marshmallow rather than the bullet, Ford says that Congress has shown little appetite even for that diet and warns that he could be back with "some tough turkey" if things don't improve. Even some of his hard, spe- cific proposals' are under for instance, his call for the saving of large amounts of oil by converting oil-fired power plants to potentially dirtier coal or replacing them with nuclear power. Environmentalists are wor- ried over what form his prom- ised amendments to the U.S. Clean Air Act may take. Also, the presidential proposals come at a time when 10 utilities have just postponed construction of 15 nuclear plants because of financing difficulties. In addition, critical questions remain unanswered concerning the safety of nuclear plants because of breakdowns and defects. Knowledgeable industry officials go so far as to say his conversion plans just won't work. A recent Environmen- tal Protection Agency state- ment notes that the 65 million barrels of oil a year the presi- dent says can be saved by conversion is the equivalent of 90 million tons of coal. And that figure, they say, is impossible until new mines are opened up in 1978 or later. They also touch on the prob- lems of a scarcity of coal hop- per railway cars and track and storage space. Farmers offer calves to Honduras vv HAZEL GREEN, Wis. (AP) A group of southwestern Wisconsin farmers has offered to donate calves to hurricane victims in Hon- duras, a National Farmers Organization (NFO) spokesman said Wednesday. Jim Runde of Cuba City, Wis., who is co-ordinating the effort, said the offer to donate calves for meat slaughter is an alternative to killing and burying the animals as was done Tuesday. More than 600 calves at Curtiss and Wisconsin Rapids were killed and buried by NFO members protesting low livestock prices. The farmers said it costs more to feed a steer than they can realize through selling the animal. President Ford said the slaughtering of young calves "contributes nothing" to solv- ing problems of inflation. In remarks prepared for a Republican rally at Sioux Falls, S.D., Ford said he intends to meet with farmers at the White House within two weeks to try and resolve the situation. Runde said the NFO plans to deliver the calves for slaughter to Dubque Packing Co. in Dubuque, Iowa, when the company arranges to have the animals slaughtered and packed without charge. However, Runde said that the calves would be killed and buried if the packing company refuses to handle the slaughter free. R. H. Wahlert, vice- president of the Dubque com- pany, said the firm is willing to go along with the project if workers at the plant agree to donate their time for the slaughter.

Aspirins linked to severe ulcers MEXICO CITY (AP) Heavy aspirin users may find themselves with some bigger headaches than the ones they're trying to cure: gastric ulcers, bleeding ulcers, ul- cerative colitis and other several intestinal problems. That's the consensus of some of the world's top specialists on stomach and intestinal ailments attending the fifth world congress of gastroenterology here. Dr. Morton Grossman of the University of California at Los Angeles said in an interview that one-third of those suffer- ing from gastric ulcers are chronic, heavy aspirin users. He said some victims take huge quanitites of aspirin to control arthritis but the ma- jority "are just chronic aspirin users. They take it for headaches and often they can't tell you why." Dr. Atanas Maleev, deputy minister of public health and director of the Academy of Medicine in Bulgaria, said: "We have observed that 50 per cent of the bleeding ulcers, ul- cerative colitis and serious lesions in the intestines seem to be directly related to patients who abuse the use of aspirin." Dr. Geofrey Watkinson of the University of Glasgow, Scotland, said he also believed serious side affects were re- lated to the high consumption of aspirin. "As a drug, it has been mar- velous and for a long time it was considered almost in- nocuous but now it has to be he said. Dr. Humberto Tocuyo of Venezuela said, "The worst is that aspirin and other medi- cines that contain acetylsalicylic acid are adver- tised profusely and are also consumed in great quantities by the public." Dr. H. Marvin Pollard, of the University of Michigan, who is president of the World Organization of Gastroenterology, said: "That question ought to be investigated along with other things that are damaging the gastroentestinal apparatus of man: in the first place, to- bacco; in second, drugs; and in some regions certain eating habits like the consumption of very irritating food." In his opening speech, Sun- day night, Pollard urged the congress to investigate the epidemiology of gas- trointestinal diseases, and noted the difference in in- cidence in various countries. "Gastric cancer, for ex- ample, is more prevalent in Japan than it is in the United States. The incidence of gas- tric cancer is decreasing in the United States. "Contrary to this, colon can- cer reaches almost its highest figures of incidence in the United States when compared to Japan and parts of Africa. Further, cancer of the pan- creas is increasing at an alarming rate in the United States and he said. Airlines plan flight exchanges NEW YORK (AP) The two largest international air- lines of the United States an- nounced Wednesday they are exchanging some inter- national flights in a money- saving move. Pan American World Airways and Trans World Airlines said they have agreed to a five-year trial exchange of various overseas services. The agreement still re- quires approval of the two carriers' boards of directors and the U.S. Civil Aeronatics Board. TWA will drop all service to Germany and the area betwen Tel Aviv and Guam, including Bombay, Taipei, Okinawa, Hong Kong and Bangkok. Pan Am will end all service to France, Portugal, Spain and Casablanca, except for stop- overs on its mid-Atlantic route from Miami to Rome. TWA will suspend through service between London and Washington, while Pan Am gives up through service be- tween London and Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. TWA will continue to service Hawaii. The plan leaves the two car- riers competitive in some key routes, including New York to London. Meanwhile, a British charter Wednesday it has filed an million suit in U.S. district court in Washington accusing four U.S. and British airlines of preventing it from running an inexpensive shuttle air ser- vice between London and New York. They are Pan American, Trans World Airlines, British Airways and British Caledonian. Freddie Laker, head of the charter line, said the four air- lines have agreed to reduce North Atlantic flights by 20 per cent and to prevent him from obtaining U.S. govern- ment approval for the shuttle service. Laker received British gov- ernment approval for the shuttle nearly two years ago and has been waiting 18 months for CAB approval.
