Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wcdnejdov, SoptomWr 13, Still, it doesiit compare ivith New York's itntrclers and muggings Statistics indicate crime ri record levels in London rty CY FOX LONDON (CP) Tlic sta- tlslics indicate that ciime is rising to record levels in Lon- don and some alarmists are even mentioning Hie name of (his capital city in the some breath with that o( New York. Hut the records at issue are Btriclly London ones, which trail far behind the marks es- tablished in New York fir such activities us assaults on pccestrians. Nothing here can compare with the quantity of murders and "muggings" in the Amer- ican metropolis. In fact the streets and parks of London remain generally safe for nocturnal strollers, including the elderly. Predictably, the city has its lough areas but the Ameri- car-s who come here often prove to be even about walking around the cap- ital at night. There was one group in af- fluent Mayfair, for instance, who approached a native Lon (loner for directions on how to reach Berkeley Square. WALKS WITH VISITORS Having been told the way the Americans immediately looked around for a taxi. Told that Berkeley Square was only a short walk fron where they stood, the visitor: explained that they neve: lake the chance of oing anywhere on foot in a ig city by night. Just to prove that London is different in this respect from cities like New York, the na- tive said he'd stroll along with he Americans to their destin- ation and the visitors emerged from their brief walk duly re- assured about the safety of this city after dark. Yet the British metropolis docs have chronic trouble spots. The Brixton district, for instance, shares some of the rougher characteristics of ra- cially-mixed areas in other Western cities. And a particularly well-pub- licized scare resulted in re- cent weeks from a murder in the neighborhood of Waterloo Station on the south bank of the River Thames. Police say muggings in that area are becoming an in- creasingly frequent occurr- ence, with older persons .the favorite targets. The fatal attack which at- tracted so much attention across brought death to an elderly man who wras walking at night along a spe- cial pedestrian thoroughfare near Waterloo. POLICE ALARMED Scotland Yard has already reacted to such incidents by assigning squads of detec- tives, often garbed like hip- pies, lo such areas as Water- loo. "We are alarmed at this outbreak of violence and in- tend to stamp it out before it gets any said one sen- ior officer. The in police circles has been intensified by the latest statistics on crime ill London. These show thai Ihe number of imlicliible crimes in Ihe capital tor (he first six- months o! 1972 totalled almost eight per cent more than in Ihe same period last year. There were crimes in June alone, .some more than in June, 1971, and more than the previous high for a single monlh, estab- lished in December, 1971. Crimes of violence here in the first half of 1S72 totalled an increase of 10.3 per cent over Ihe January-June period last year. But police can find some consolation in a fall in this year's JanuaryJune murder .with' M for the first half of 1971. Moreover, police succeeded in solving 30.6 per cent of the crimes- listed for January- June, 1972, compared with their 29.1-p e r -c e n t success rale during Ihe same period of 1971. Artists banned from sidewalks By OLSON SAN FRANCISCO (AP) As the noon sun beats down, Chris Wilson sets up her display of Iwmemade candles in a vater- Jronl plaza and settles down for what she knows will be a long wait tor customers. Chris is one of San Francis- co's street artists, a tourist at- traction now banished from the city's sidewalks and parks to Embarcadero Plaza, a wide treeless concrete expanse. Not many tourists go there. "When we were free to sell on the streets to tourists, we could make a said the soft- spoken, 27-year-old Chris. "Now it is impossible." STORES PROTEST The artists, mostly young and long-haired, became well-publi- cized tourist attractions when they first appeared about 20 months ago. They sold jewelry paintings, leather goods and other works in downtown Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf Ghiarardelli Square and other well-visited spots. But nearby merchants com plained that they clogged sids walks, disrupted tourist traffi and posed an economic threa by selling some of the sam goods that were on display i their stores. After repeated skinnishes ith police, the artists were or- ered off the streets and into Embarcadero Plaza by the city oard of supervisors. Warren Garrick, president of he Street Artists Guild, de- clares the artists are Ihe larget of a "cruel, derogatory hate ampaign" by merchants. PAID NO FEES But Art Blum, advertising agency owner, sees it differ- ently. 'Store owners pay inventory, >usiness licence and property taxes to sell what they Blum says. "The street artists sell exactly the same things and pay nothing. That's not the 'ree-enlerprise system as I know it." Dozens of artists used lo set up shop daily on sidewalks throughout the city, but now- only 20 sell to businessmen and workers wandering Ihrough Ihe plaza on their lunch hour. The artist1; have begun a fight to get back on the streets. The guild, which Garrick says "is dedicaled to finding an honora- ble and legal status for street has filed a Superior Court lawsuit, demanding issu- ance c? city pedlars' licences which would permit the artists to sell on the street. Cancer discovery raises new hope NEWCASTLE, England CAP) I Journal, Field forecast that by Potential cancer sufferers may bo identified long before physical symptoms appear, a British research team reports. This discovery7, they said, may point the way to an even- tual breakthrough in treatment based on stimulating the body's own natural defences. The report came from Prof. E. J. Field and a medical re- search team working at New- castle General Hospital. Writing in the British Medical Boost price of nickel TORONTO (CP) Inter- national Nickel Co. of Canada Ltd. announced that effective today it has increased the prices for two types of nickel oxide sinter, a granular mate- rial used in the production ol wrought or cast stainless am alloy steels. The price for nickel oxide sin ier 90, containing about SO per cent nickel, is raised 12 cents a pound U.S.' to SM9. The price of nickel oxic'o sinter 75, wil approximately 75 per cen nickel, is increased 10 cents pound U.S. to 51.37 based 01 nickel content. The oxide sinter increase, follow price rises last week by Canadian produc crs for refined electrolyti nickel, a highly pure form nickel a'ed for allowing cast o wrought materials and in pla ing. Falconbridge N'ickcl Mine Ltd. and Inco both increase the price 20 cents a pound U.S. to more on end of the century mass ereening for cancer will be :andard practice, and im- attempt to issist natural defences may e available to potential suffe- ers even before the sile of the ancer is localed. A member of Ihe team cau- .oned, however, that their work should not raise false op- 'mism. 'ESTS EXPENSIVE He explained that the diag- ostic le.sts involved are ex- tensive and complicated and nust be radically simplified be- ore mass screening could be- gin. The team's work is based on Is discovery that the white blood cells of people with can- :er develop a special reaction .0 a protein present in malig nanl tumors. They then started lesling children horn to mothers who subsequently foveloped cancer. They found that the mothers passed these sensitized white cells on to their children sev- eral years before the mother's cancer was diagnosed. Thus Ihe potenlial cancer in the mother could have been identified long before the can- cer became apparent. The cells passed on to the child are harmless. They disappear be- fore puberty and may, the team believes, even have pro- tective value. "It is already clear that the earliest surgical diagnosis is al- ready relatively Field wrote.
