Mislimov, who celebrated his 168th birthday in May. died after a severe illness in the Caucasus mountain village of Barzavu where h2 lived all his life, the Soviet news agency said. The exact date of birth of the wiry, white-bearded mountain- eer was never recorded. But So- viet scientists say they fixed the year of birth as 1803 from his recollection cf childhood events. Lacking documentary proof, Western scientists ware skepti- cal of Mish'roov's age but con- ceded he was very old. It is not uncommon for residents of the mountains of Azerbaijan and Georgia to reach the age of 100. When his birthday was cele- brated in May, the newspaper Trud quoted a letter Mislimov wrote when asked the secret of his long life: "I get up early in the morn- ing, work in my garden, go to bed just after 10 in ths evening, never steep in the daytime and don't even feel like it. I take daily walks of nearly one kilo- metre. "I've been married three times. Of my 23 children, many were carried away by the storms of life and war. Only two are still alive. My wife Khatun is 107. She is full of pep and looks carefully after me." Tuesday, September 4, 1973 THE LfTHBRIDGC HtRAlD Canada seeks compensation OTTAWA (CP) The gov-
