Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednetday, 19-, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-31 Castro to study arrest GANDER, Nfld. (CP) Premier Fidel Castro of Cuba said today he will look into the case of a Canadian serving a 30-year term for espionage in Cuba. Castro was interviewed dur- ing a stopover at Gander air- port while returning home after a visit to Hanoi. Ronald Lippert, a Canadian citizen from Kitchener, Ont., is a self-confessed former American CIA agent who was arrested in Cuba 10 years ago for attempting to smuggle ex- plosives into the country. He was sentenced to 30 years im- prisonment but his family is petitioning for his release. Premier Castro said he is not familiar with the case but he would think that if the courts convicted him then he should fulfill their term. However, "there have been many cases in which the revolutionary government has shown generosity to this kind of person who has committed crimes against our he said. "I will try to get some infor- mation on it when I get home New envoy OTTAWA (CP) China's new ambassador to Canada, Chang Wen-Chin, has arrived here. One on his first duties will be to supervise arrangements for Prime Minister Trudeau's visit to China next month. Interpreting the News Nixon advisers differ over tax hike issue Important cancer find By JUDITH RANDAL Washington Star-News NAGOYA Biochemical properties that lead to cancer are not present as some researchers suggest in a person from the moment he is conceived, making it all but inevitable that he will even- tually develop the disease, a study of identical twins has in- dicated According to the oncogene or cancer gene theory, the seeds of cancer are sown m the hereditary machinery of each cell by a virus infection STILL FOR STERN'S CUT 314 3rd Streets. SELLING LESS RATE FURNITURE Phone 327-3024 at the time the egg is fertiliz- ed by the sperm But if this were so, Dr. Sol Spiegelman told the sixth in- ternational symposium on comparative leukemia research, the cancer time bombs should be embedded in the cells of both members of a pair of identical twins since both are the outcome of the union of a single egg with a single sperm. Spiegelman and his colleagues at the Institute of Cancer Research at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons developed sensitive molecular probes by which they can detect the presence or absence of chemical se- quences in a cell to which cancer-producing genetic material gives rise. TWINS SELECTED For purposes of the study Spiegelman and his chief collaborator, Dr. William Baxt, selected two pairs of identical twins in each of which there was one healthy twin and one who had leukemia. They then used the molecular probes on samples of white blood cells from all these individuals to see if they contained the same genetic in- formation. They found the white blood cells of the leukemic subjects contained sequences of chemical information which had important elements in common with a virus known to cause leukemia in animals, but which were lacking in the healthy twins. If the cancer-producing material, had been present from the time of conception, he said, the chemical se- quences in the white blood cells of both members of each twin pair should have been the same. Autopsy studies on patients who have died of leukemia add further weight to this fin- ding, Spiegelman said. Tissue that remained healthy throughout the course of the disease did not contain the telltale chemical sequences when tested by the molecular probes. Family living in tent For Mrs. Lillian Carle- ton, having a house full of children has meant no house at all. She, her hus- band, Ralph, and seven children can't find a home big enough for them since their last rented home was sold. Now they are living in two tents near Uxbri- dge. Mrs. Carleton poses with some of her fam- ily at the "dining room a picnic table out- side their tents. Behind her, left to right, are Karen 10, Nancy, 7, Darren, 2, and Laurie, 13. Sitting beside her mother is Lorr- etta, 8. Two other children were absent. By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) For a variety of reasons, the odds against immediate considera- tion of an income tax increase in the by the ad- ministration or astronomical. Yet the recent spectacle of two urbane, fundamentally easy-going policy-makers squabbling in public over the prospect, highlights the con- fusion rife in key economic quarters. President Nixon is known to rely heavily on his circle of advisers on economic matters and such basic divergence of views may raise questions about the calibre of the advice he's getting. Coupled with this has been the recent unsettling rise in inflation. The economy was under greater control in the days of the phase 1 freeze and some economists suggest tax in- creases might have been better considered at that time to combat the pressures of inflation. Since then, with the trend more and more to voluntary controls and the resulting up- surge in the inflation rate, the opportunity may have been lost. To implement such increases now, they feel, might cause too abrupt a brake on buying power, precipitating too swift a slide toward recession. FIGHT AIRED The general confusion and disagreement among presidential advisers broke into public view recently when Treasury Secretary George Shultz took on Melvin Laird, former defence secretary now domestic adviser to Nixon. Laird announced that the administration was consider- ing a refundable 10-per-cent surtax on personal and cor- porate type of com- pulsory savings plan such as was enacted in Canada during the Second World War. Shultz, in Tokyo attending international trade talks, snapped back that Laird should keep his "cotton- picking" hands off economic policy and that this was "not the time to raise taxes." For the soft-spoken Shultz, it was a blistering rejoinder It was. however, in line with what many economists now consider were ill-advised assurances by the president during the 1972 election cam- paign repeated there would be no tax increases. SPENDING TRIMMED The administration has in- sisted that the way to curb in- flation is through the budget by keeping down non-defence spending Roy Ash, director of the of- fice of management and budget, says he does not favor a tax increase to curb infla- tion and adds that "the presi- dent is not going to abrogate his responsibility to the people" to maintain a non- inflationary budget. To that end, Ash says, the administration is determined to continue impoun- to allow spen- funds approved by Congress This policy has set up a further struggle between the president and Conerp" Anti-impoundment bills are up for consideration this week and Ash says that any such legislation will be vetoed by Nixon A James Meigs, vice-presi- dent and economist of the Argus Research Corporation, said bitterly in a recent speech "If the 'Fed' wants a reces- sion in 1974. it will have to get to work right away." The growth of the money supply under the policies of the federal reserve, is criticiz- ed lor fluctuating too widely.
