Box 640 Vegreville, Alberta projects currently under way or in the planning stages will have gone far to penetrate the physical boundaries, and perhaps the ideological boun- daries, that separate the nations of Europe. Within less than a decade the continent will be crisscrossed by a network of inland waterways comprising major rivers and canals link- ing them. Cargoes will be able to move along the whole miles of river-canal lifeline, linking the northern seas to the Black Sea. Countries in mid-Europe, such as Czechoslovakia, Austria, and Hungary, will be ideally situated. They will be able to shift their goods by expensively than rail or road, especially for Ibulky ores or heavy northern or near-Eastern ports and to customers in Eastern or Western Europe. PIPELINES Soviet oil from the Urals already pours into Eastern Europe through two pipelines now approaching their com- bined capacity of 16 to 17 million tons of crude annually. An east-west tra'nsit line carrying Siberian natural gas has been in operation since the start of the year, bringing supplies to Austria, and very shortly to East Germany, West Germany, France and Italy. Just recently, the arrangements and contracts were concluded for the so- called Adria pipeline, which will pump Arab oil produced in the Middle East from Yogoslav ports to Hungary, Czecholovakia, and ultimately Romania. The Yugoslavs are building a new port on Rijeka Bay (in the north Adriatic) capable of receiving maximum-capacity giant tankers. They also are building several hundred miles of pipeline to Hungary and to their own refineries and river ports in eastern Yugoslavia. Adria will be, in effect, complementary to the Alpine pipeline laid six years ago by Western oil companies from Trieste, Italy, (located just across the Istrian peninsula from Rijeka, to Ingolstadt, Germany. The Alpine pipeline was the sixth and largest link in a growing European pipeline network between Mediterra- nean and Adriatic ports, and central and southern Europe. Adria was started in 1971, but progress was slowed by financial difficulties. Now, following both a recent meeting between President Tito of Yugoslavia and Hungarian leader Janos Kadar and agreement between Yugoslavia's own competition-minded oil com- panies the "full ahead" signal has been given, and the pipeline is to be operational by 1976. Its capacity will be about half that of the Alpine line, or about 40 million tons annually, but it will, nonetheless, enable both Hungary and Czechoslovakia to make up deficiencies that will arise when supplies from the U.S.S.R. are curtailed in the future. Both Hungary and Czechoslovakia will have to count heavily on supplies from'' the Middle East, though these supplies will probably cost them less than does Soviet oil at the present. They will, in fact, receive 5 million tons yearly. The rest of Adria's anticipated 20 million tons will be for Yugoslavia itself. While the inter-European oil octopus grows, the Con- tintinent's biggest water- way the Europe Canal linking the Rhine, Main and Danube being push- ed steadily ahead. The linkup already is ac- complished as far as Nuremberg. The gap eastward to the Danube at Regensburg is due to be finished by 1981, thus readying the waterway for traffic between such ports as Ham- burg, Bremen, and Rotterdam in the north right down to ports in eastern Europe and the Black Sea in the south. Rhine-Main-Danube canal is one of the two major projects central to a whole scheme prepared by the Geneva-based United Nations Economic Commission for Europe The other is a canal joining the Danube with the Oder and Elbe rivers. JUSTIFIED This canal seems more than justified by the phenomenal growth during the last decade in the volume of traffic and freight, the switch to larger shipping units, con- tainerization, diesel engine improvements, and so on. Space program gives new hope to the paralyzed HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (Reu- ter) A puff of breath or a twitch of the eye is about all he has to work with, but a bed- ridden, paralysed 18-year-old can turn electrical appliances off and on, open and close win- dows and drapes, make a phone call or buzz the nurse. It's not extra-sensory per- ception but a technological spin-off of the United States space program being put to use at Huntsville Hospital. On July 22, Randy Lee Dickman of Savannah, Tenn., was involved in an automobile accident that left him paral- ysed from the neck down. He would have been a senior this year at the Seventh Day Ad- ventist high school his parents operate. He was brought to the hos- pital, had surgery and was placed in a special room, the only one of its kind in the Country. The room has a tabletop full of electronic control gadgets, and electrical-mechanical devices attached to appli- ances and objects that a bed- ridden patient would like to operate on his own. STILL BEING TESTED The electronic system was developed, adapted and is be- ing jointly tested by engi- neers from Marshall Space Flight Centre and the hospi- tal. It permits the paralysed person to control with his eyes or by a puff of air, for lights in his room, television and radio sets, electric blankets, an electric fan and other electric aids. Two switches are mounted on a pair of eyeglass frames on the earpieces near the eyes of the patient. Each of the "sight switches" has a small infra-red source and a sensor which detects the difference in reflection between the iris and the white part of the eye. To make the switch work for him, the patient simply looks upward and outward at the sensor. Randy can also operate the breath-actuated switch which does about the same thing as the sight switch. EASY TO OPERATE "I can blow on the red (switch) and change chan- said Randy from his hospital bed. "There are 17 channels and I can blow on the green, and then activate different channels. I can open the drapes on one channel and blow in a dufferent way and close them, for example. "A man came in yesterday, showed me how the sight switch worked, adjusted it for me and I learned how to work in 15 minutes. Normal blink- ing won't affect it. You have to keep your right eye still and look up, real hard, to the left and then, click, click, you change channels." Hospital administrator Wassie Y. Griffin said most patients who have tested the equipment have been able to operate the system with less than an hour's practice. "The increased freedom this system has provided Randy has given a great boost to his he said. "The sense of independence created for most patients has renewed their interest in their im- mediate environment, and patients recently paralysed by injuries face less traumatic adjustments." Randy agrees: "If I have the blow control system, I don't have to depend on any- body." OIL PIPELINES FROM U.S.S.R.
