She said liberalized abortion laws have not been proven to substantially reduce the num- ber of illegal abortions in other countries. "All that happens is that a huge number of legal abortions get added to a static number of illegal ones. The solutions, said Dr. Mor- ris, rest in "personal and pub- lic responsible family planning, continuing public education in wealth and homemaking, better housing and financial assist- ance, better facilities and finan- cial help for retarded, defective and disturbed children and their parents."

Soviet pledge fails MOSCOW CAP) The Soviet economy is showing weakness in the sectors which were sup- posed to lead the country into the consumer era. A review of economic per- formance for the first eight months of the year was pub- lished Wednesday by Ekonomi- cheskaya there was little in it to satisfy the rising ex- pectations of Soviet consumers. Shortfalls were reported for textiles, clothes, shoes, knitted goods, television sets and wash- ing machines. When Leonid I. Brezhnev, the Communist party general sec- retary, unveiled the contours of the 1971-to-1975 economic plan last year these were the very items he singled out for "ap- preciable" increase in produc- tion. If the ninth five-year plan, now near the end of its second year, promised to "saturate" the market with consumer goods. Premier Alexei N. Kosy- gin made it plain that this would depend on a 38-te-40-per- cent increase in labor produc- tivity by the end of the plan pe- riod. "These targets are of crucial importance for our whole eco- nomic development Kosygin told the 24th party con- gress in April 1971.

New surgery for stroke patients TORONTO (CP) A Toronto surgeon says that four persons, in danger of suffering strokes because too little blood was reaching their brains, have un- dergone difficult new surgery to provide the brain with fresh blood. Dr. Robert Elgie, chief of neurosurgery at Scarborough General Hospital, described the operation Tuesday to the On- tario chapter of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and later at a news conference. He said surgeons rerouted a thread-fine artery from the scalp of each patient, inserting it through a hole in the skull and hooking it to a blood vessel ftrjding the brain. Dr. Elgie said one of the patients receiving the operation was a 52-year-old woman, suf- fering small stroke-like attacks that caused temporary weak- ness or paralysis of her right arm and leg. She was confused and suffered memory lapses. Dr. Elgie said the woman's symptoms vanished after she underwent the four-hour sur- gery last March. He said the surgery inv61ves boring a small hole in the skull above the ear, enlarging it with a drill and then lifting Ihe cov- ering of the brain. The surgeon then joins the artery from the scalp to an artery on the sur- face of the brain. A 40-power microscope is used for the op- eration. Two 47-year-old men and a 51-year-old man also were helped by the operation. WOOLCO 10th ANNIVERSARY I ITEMS FOR YOUR HOME DECORATORS NEEDED WELLAND, Ont.
