By CY FOX LONDON (CP) Soviet spending on defence now seems to have reached at 1 e a s t the American level, says an eval- uation of the world arms situ- ation issued by an independent instilule here. The International Institute for Strategic Studies says the So- viet expenditure for 1972 may be between five and 10 per cent higher than the United Slates figure if calculated at U.S. price levels. Estimate from the U.S. gov- ernment "suggest that Ameri- can outlays have recently tend- ed to fall while Soviet defence outlays increased, says the in- stitute in a report published today. All this indicates is that in 1971 there was virtually pari- ty in defence spending between the two snper the report continues. But in evaluating the current oalaoce between American and Soviet missile might, it adds that "neither super-power can consider itself to have any sig- nificant advantage to engage In nuclear warfare without in- curring obliteration." Both powers have continued lo develop the quality ot their missile systems despite the re- strictions on quantity resulting from their recent agreements on strategic arms limitt-'Jon. PEARSON CHAIRMAN The London based institute, of which former Canadian prime minister Lester B. Pear- son is chairman, says the Rus- sians continue to overhaul the Americans in rocket launches while the U.S. has gone further ahead in warheads. The strategic arms limitation agreements commonly re- ferred to as part of a formal Soviet American treaty limiting the anti-ballistic missile systems of both sides for an indefinite period and their stock of offensive strate- gic missiles for five yeiX The institute suggests that the U.S. ar.d the Soviet Union "are entirely unable to disarm each other by a first strike against strategic forces." But each power "has within its armory a number and vari- ety of both delivery vehicles shift in favor of the East." The institute finds that "tl New Ice Age creeps over hemisphere NORWICH, England (AP) new Ice Age is creeping over e Northern Hemisphere, and e rest of this century will row colder and colder, a Brit- K expert on climate says. Prof. Hubert Lamb, director climate research at the Unl- ersity of East Anglla, had a ;w comforting thoughts in an iterview Sunday: "The full impact of the new ce Age will not be upon us or another years and ven then it will not be as se- ere as the last great glacial jeriod. We are past the best of the Inter-glacial period which hi'.J- pened between and years he continued. "Ever since then we have been on a downhill float re- g a r d i n g temperature. There may be a few upward fluctua- lions from time to time but these are more than olfset by the general downward trend." TEMPERATURES DIP Lamb said temperatures have been slowly dipping for the last 20 years. "We are in a definite down- hill course for the next two cen- he said. "The last 20 years of this century will be progressively colder. After that the climate may warm up again but only for a short pe- riod of decades." History in comic books TORONTO (CP) Now It's "The stories are as accurate Deadly icebergs plague shipping Warsaw pact is intrinsically ca- pable of a faster buildup in the early stages ot a war situation, particularly if local or general surprise is achieved." NATO HAS MORE NATO has about nuclear warheads while the Soviet fig- ure is about NATO and the Eastern Eu- ropean bloc each has areas of military activity in which it is superior to the rival group. But the Warsaw pact advantage in numbers is a very real one, the report says. Moreover, the Soviet Union can "launch a battlefield nu- clear offensive on a massive scale if it should choose or can match any NATO escalation with broadly similar options." Referring lo such marine areas as the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, the institute says the West still enjoys supe riority at sea but "the Soviel fleets are now able to offer a challenge at every level of mili tary or politico military ac tion." On China, the report notes the death of Defence Minister Lin Plao as an event "likely to have undermined morale in the officer corps besides causing a hiatus in defence planning." The Chinese army "lacks the facilities and logistic support for protracted large-scale mili tary operations outside says the institute. NEW YORK (CP) The In- .ernational Ice Patrol ended a Jong cold summer on the North Atlantic this week wiih a report that a record icebergs plowed through shipping lanes. The U.S. Coast Guard said Canadian-based planes were joined this year by special sur- face vessels which radioed warnings to shipping and ted information to a computer wliich plotted the probable course ot the deadly bergs. The Ice season began about one month earlier than usual this year, with tlie international patrol going into operaion Feb. 29 and continuing until Labor Day. The icebergs topped the previous high ot recorded to 1929, said Capt. Eugene )elaney, ice patrol director nth the U..S Coast Guard.

SHIPS FORCED SOUTH Shipping was. forced to travel iouth of normal trade routes to avoid hitting the icebergs. "What normally happens to he Oapt. Delaney said, "Is, that as they move south below the 48th parallel, .hey hit warmer air and water :emperatures. This limits the jerg's life span to a matter of weeks or even days." This year the Labrador Cur- rent penetrated into the Gulf Stream, the captain said, low- ering the water temperature considerably and prolonging the life of icebergs. Also, sea ice, the flat, table-top ice which de- veloped during the win- ter, stayed later into toe spring and, by restricting the water's motion, reduced normal erosion of the bergs, he said. Canadian history in comic books. A group of young Toronto art- isis and writers has taken Epi- sodes from Canada's past and transformed them into fast- paced books In the familiar comic format, which will be distributed to Toronto schools and libraries. Using a Opportunities for Youth grant, six artists and five writers spent a month re- searching story lines and pe- riod costumes, as well as read- ing comic books, before putting anything down on paper. They are covering such topics as the life of Louis Riel, the Metis rebel who led a Prairie revolt in the 1880s the creation of the North West Mounted Po- lice and the destruction of the Huron nation by the Iroquois in the 1600s. as says 21-year-old artist John Heard, who thinks here is a future for Canadian- produced comic books. "There are 21 million Cana- dians who haven't seen a Cana- dian comic book since the end of the ban on United States comics during the Second World he adds. "If we could get them published, I'm sure there would be a market for Canadian comic books in Canada." He says about six members of the group would stay in the comic book field If they could find a market and some finan- cial backing. "The toughest thing Is to get Canadian publishers to recog- nize the fact that there is talent in Canada and a market for writer Cal Lucas, 19, says. Lamb said climale changes ome in cycles determined by astronomical and physical fac- ors. Ho said one main cause s the amount of radiation re- vived from the sun. "Wo know that the behavior sf the sun changes at inter- 'als and these changes liavo heir effect, he said. "The distance between the earth and the sun also varies hrough the ages as the earth's orbit increases or decreases its elliptical path. "The tilting of the earth M It rotates around its own axis also makes the polar Ice cap grow, and this affecfc the air masses around it." The last great Ice age took ilace about years ago and was the sixth In a period of about one million years. The great Ice sheets covered most of the British Isles and North America. The ice was at least feet thick. "I don't think it will be quits as serious this Lamb said. "But there will be a lot of glaciers on high ground which do not exist at present." New artificial kidney macliine cheaper, faster MONTREAL (CP) A new Artificial kidney machine, ilmed at making treatment iheaper, faster and more ac- cessible to people with kidney iisease, was tested at Royal Victoria Hospital this week. Dr. T. M. S. Chang, a McGill University physiology profes- sor, invented the machine rtiich is the size of a gallon jug and weighs less than a pound. Only a small proportion of the people who need kidney machine assistance receive it, Dr. Chang said, "because of the cost and complexity" of the standard machines. Standard machines which re- move poisonous wastes in dam- aged kidneys cost between 000 and but Dr. Chanj says his would cost less if il were mass produced. On conventional machines which are the size of slandart refrigerators blood must pass through yards of tubing to bring it in contact with purify- ing This process re- quires twice-weekly, eight-hour sessions lor a patient. On the doctor's macliine, the resistance to blood now is low and the procedure takes only a couple of hours. Dr. Chang said his invention came about when he put acti valed charcoal filters in arti icial cells he Invented in 1956. Most waste products are ab- sorbed as they pass through the The cells can be replaced imply and Inexpensively when they become saturated. "It is not yet a complete arti- icial the doctor said. 'Other systems for the removal of urea, electrolytes and water still must be developed for clin- cal uses." Tow schooner SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (Reuter) United Stales Coast Guard spokesmen said the 60- foot Canadian schooner Bounty with five persons aboard was taken safely under tow by the cutter Point Whitehorn. Bounty lost its rudder about 100 miles south of Puerto Rico while en route from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to South America and called for assist- ance. No further details were available.
