Nader told newsmen he supported impeachment action against President Nixon. Plane-watching great sport By LARRY HEINZERLING OUAGADOUGOU, Upper Volta (AP) Watching the big but infrequent jet planes roar in and out of town ranks as great sport in Ouagadougou. Upper Volta's impoverished "jet set" has little else to do in this capital of one of the world's poorest countries where the average per capita income a year is around Going to meet the planes at night has become top entertainment in the French-flavored city of 125- ,000 "It's sort of like the train coming into a little town in the old Wild West days of America with everybody out there to greet it, says one resident. An expensive alternative is spending about 50 cents more than a day's wages for many to catch the movie at the Oubri Cinema Ouagadougou television, on the air just a few hours each night with old French TV film U. S. still No. 1 oil producer UNITED NATIONS (Reuter) The United States is still the world's biggest oil- producing country followed by the Soviet Union, Iran and Saudi Arabia, the latest available figures published by the UN show. Covering the year 1971, these put U S production at 490 million tons. The Soviet Union produced 377 million tons of oil, Iran 227 million tons and Saudi Arabia 223 million tons. The UN report, World Energy Supplies 1968-71, noted that Iran and Saudi Arabia both overtook Venezuela, which produced 187 million tons in 1971, a decrease of five per cent from the preceding year Kuwait produced 147 million tons, followed by Libya with 132 million tons World petroleum exports reached a record million metric tons in 1971, with Iran continuing in first place as a crude-oil exporting country with 199 million tons. Western Europe, Japan and the United States together ac- counted for 71 per cent of the world's total imports of crude petroleum in 1971, the report said. Japan's imports exceed- ed those of any other single country, reaching a record level of 192 million tons. strips, just can't top plane watching THRONG TO AIRPORT So the P'tle white two- storey airport outside Upper Volta's remote and dusty capital, which residents call remains the city's best-frequented night spot The main attraction at the airport for many years was the big DC-8 passenger plane but times, even in Ouaga, change "You should have heard the gasps when the giant DC-10 first landed here a while recounted one French resident "They just didn't believe that thing could get up off the ground An added thrill came with the camouflaged military air- craft from Belgium and other countries ferrying food to the drought-stricken northern areas They zoom in and out of the airport at all hours carry- ing grain brought up from the Ivory Coast by train The train technically called the Abidjan-Niger Line, never quite reaches Niger because lack of funds forced the builders years ago to stop lay- ing track at Ouagadougou. Train-watchers, whose numbers almost rival the "jet lovingly call it the "Ouagadougou Choo-Chom." FAMILY TIES STRONG The traditionally strong African family ties partially explain the large airport tur- nout. "If one Upper Voltan is going to France, 10 show up to say said one "Ten others come to see the fellow arriving. That's 20 people for every two coming or going." Youngsters romp on the second-floor outdoor balcony overlooking the tarmac and gawk at the shiny silver birds and their red, white and green lights twinkling in the humid African night. The three night-time flights that arrive each week on the West African route from or to Paris attract the biggest crowd. Arriving passengers are welcomed by shouts, waves and cheers from the balcony SCENE NOISY Some are returning Upper Voltan students who have been studying in France. Many are French aid officials or technicians coming back from vacation And there are inevitably, the tourists toting cameras and souvenirs from the last stop. Downstairs, in the noisy main hall, passengers, customs officials and waiting relatives rub shoulders with taxi drivers, porters and traders "It's a real social oc- says a Frenchman who helps run the overcrowd- ed terminal "Everyone com- es in their best clothes to gossip and have Home fun." Men killing themselves off by bad habits OTTAWA (CP) Canadian men are killing themselves off by bad habits at such a rate that women may take over by- default If men aged 15 to 70 con- tinue to die off at present rates, there will be two million more women than men in Canada by the year 2050, say federal statistics. The death rate for males in the age group 15 to prime twice that of women, says H L Lafram- boise, assistant deputy minister in charge of long- range health planning Men are "eating, lazing, smoking and drinking them- selves to death The major causes of death during these prime years are, for Canadian men, largely conse- quences of the person's own he said in an inter- view. Many deaths could be prevented if men would take better care of themselves Mr Laframboise's branch recently completed a study on mortality rates related to age groups which might have ma- jor implications for health programs in the future. It showed the major causes of death between the ages of 20 and 60 are motor vehicle accidents, suicide, heart dis- ease and lung cancer. Most of these deaths are in- directly related to the per- son's own actions, Mr. Laframboise said In 1971 men between ages 20 and 60 died, compared with women in the same age group. In the 20-to-24 age group three times as many young men died as women. The ma- jor cause was traffic ac- cidents and the chief con- tributing causes appeared to be drinking and speeding. After age 39 the biggest killer of men is heart disease. Heart disease in young-men is related to poor diet (for ex- ample, high cholesterol and excess weight, lack of exercise, tension and anxiety. For men between 35 and 50 the second major cause of death is lung linked to smoking. Women have a much better chance of living longer, active lives, he said. flpor fashions ntn Spread a world of beauty at your feet!
