Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Boy thanks doctor for arm repair TORONTO (CP) - A 12-year-old Oshawa, Ont., boy whose right arm was almost torn off in a laundromat accident last month used it here to squeeze the hand of his physiotherapist. Nasim Shaikh was injured Sept. 15 when he went to a laundromat alone, opened the door of a dryer "a little bit" and shoved in his hand. A finger caught in one of the holes of the whirling drum, which "pulled my hand way back." Nasim screamed and a man nearby ran over and stopped the machine by pulling the door wide, open, but the boy's arm was only hanging on by the skin and some nerves. After emergency treatment at Oshawa the boy was taken to Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children the same night. An operation to save the arm was performed by Dr. Mercer Rang of the hospital's orthopedic staff. The boy will soon have the cast taken off the arm and will return to his parents. Circulation has been restored to the arm and he is progressing very well, hospital officials said. "It was a very tricky job," said a hospital official, because only a few inches of skin and nerve held the arm together above the elbow.

Ph. 327-4280 The police have decided that an 83-year-old grandmother had nothing to do with those six suitcases of smuggled arms aboard the Queen Elizabeth 2. "Me?" said Catherine Walsh of Cork, an Irish-American widow. "I hardly know anything CATHERINE WALSH ... Innocent grannie about the IRA. But it's a long time since I received so much attention." The machine-guns, pistols, grenades and bullets were discovered when the luxury liner docked from New York. The police assume the arms were destined for the outlawed Irish Republican Army. Mrs. Walsh was a passenger on the ship. Her luggage was identical to the six suitcases filled with arms, and the latter were stamped with G. Walsh. The police questioned the old lady Wednesday and decided the smugglers may have tried to use her as a cover. "What could have been more innocent than a gnnntt's baggage?" a police spokesman said.

Johnson says in his memoirs mat during his first year in the White House there was no general agreement among his advisers to bomb North Vietnam. "Whenever the subject came up, one or another of them usually mentioned the risk of giving Communist China an excuse for massive intervention in Vietnam," Johnson wrote in the fourth instalment of his memoirs being printed in the New York Times. The secret Pentagon study of the Vietnam war, printed last June by The Times and other newspapers, said the Johnson administration had reached a "general consensus" for bomb-big North Vietnam in September, 1964 - less than 10 months after Johnson became president, and two months before the presidential election. Environment Minister Jack Davis recently added to his reputation as a loner when, without consulting his cabinet col leagues, he made a pronouncement on the necessity of Eddy's paper plant moving out of neighboring Hull, Que., to cut air pollution in the capital. He suddenly found that the ministers from Quebec, includ-ig Prime Minister Trudeau, are far more interested in seeing that Eddy's 4,200 jobs are preserved. Mr. Davis is reported to have received a lecture from Mr. Trudeau and orders to keep quiet in public about Eddy's, no matter how much smoke comes out of its chimneys.

Saturday, October 23, t971 - THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD - 21 Oil riches main resource Kuwait still dusty, noisy country NOBEL WINNER - Pablo Neruda, Chilean poet, diplomat and strong Marxist, won the 1971 Nobel Prise for Literature. Election legal SAIGON (AP) - South Vietnam's Supreme Court ruled Friday that President Nguyen Van Thieu's unopposed re-election Oct. 3 was legal. The decision cleared the way for the inauguration of Thieu Oct. 31 for a second four-year term. The court's decision was without amplification. By IBRAHIM NOORI BEIRUT (Reuter) - Oil riches have lifted Kuwait in less than three decades to an ultramodern state in many ways, but it is still generally a dusty and noisy country and the fuel may be a mixed blessing. Its air and coastal waters are polluted and a population explosion is compounding human environmental problems created by rapid development and industrialization. This picture, common to many developing countries, emerged from a report on the gulf state submitted by Kuwait to a five-day regional seminar held by the United Nations Economic and Social Office in Beirut. The seminar, also attended by Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen and the Yemen Arab Republic,-was the fourth in a regional series. They are designed to prepare governments for a UN conference on human environment to be held in Stockholm, next June. The previous seminars were held in Thailand, Mexico and Canada work together OTTAWA (CP) - Canada and Mexico have agreed to work towards lessening restrictions and commercial, cultural and other relations between them, it was announced Friday. A communique following two days of ministerial talks also expressed a joint hope or "earliest possible removal" of the 10-per-cent extra U.S. import duty imposed Aug. 15 by President Nixon as part of bis new economic policy. Emilio O. Rabasa, Mexican foreign affairs minister, Carlos Torres Manzo, Mexcian minister of industry and commerce, and a phalanx of their officials conferred with External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin and their Canadian advisers. They decided to set up a working group of officials to examine Mexican-Canadian trade problems, including trading standards for goods and transport problems. They also will exchange information on trade opportunities and try to standardize the interpretation of trade statistics.

The Kuwait report revealed that the dumping of waste has killed small fish and forced bigger species and shrimps away from the state's coast. On an average of once a week from March to September, dust and sand storms from neighboring Iraq and Saudi Arabia sweep over hot and humid Kuwait. Early in the morning and in the evening people can smell the odor of waste gas, fume and smoke from oil installations, factories and vehicles, the report said. Because of the influx of thousands of people from other Arab countries to booming Kuwait, its population has increased from 75,000 in 1950 to 733,196 in 1969. The report says 95 per cent of the state's inhabitants are non-Kuwaitis. With an area of about 6,000 square miles, Kuwait's population is expected to reach 2.4 million in th next two decades. Food is plentiful and the basic standard of health and educational facilities high. But Kuwait also has its slum areas, the report said, inhabited by some 114,000 people. Kuwait has signed an agreement with the International Labor Organization and the World Health Organization for a two-year project to study and recommend ways of solving the country's environmental problems. The government has allocated $253,000 towards the project, which also envisages the training of more Kuwaitis to deal with the problems.
