Huge hole devours drilling rig9 truck BROOKSV1LLE, Fla. (AP) "You can't imagine how helpless you said a workman after the earth caved in around him, devouring worth of equipment, including a 36-foot drilling rig. Bob Putnam was one of three men drilling a test well lor water when a 300-foot-wide sinkhole opened up in the sand hills near this central Florida community Thursday. Within 10 minutes, the cavern had swallowed everything but the men and their little jeep, in which they escaped the area. The pit was still growing early today, authorities said. "I've never seen anything like said Hernando County sheriff's deputy Lonnie Coburn. He said the hole was at least 100 feet deep. The truck-mounted drill rig went in nose first, its diesel engine still running, a water truck with a gallon tank followed, then a trailer loaded with pipe.

Vffffi Montreal transit service restored Cancer links studied in hypertension drugs WASHINGTON (AP) The department of health, educa- tion and welfare announced Thursday it has begun an investigation of three studies reporting a possible link between two widely prescrib- ed antihypertension drugs and breast cancer in older women. The drugs, reserpine and rescinnamine, have been used in the United States for 20 years and account for 25 per cent of medicines for treat- ment of high blood pressure. Reserpine alone is taken by three million to four million U.S. patients. Separate studies in Boston, Finland and Britain found that among women over 60 years of age, the breast cancer rate was up to three times higher for those who had taken reser- pine over long periods of time. The reports are being pub- lished in this Saturday's edi- tion of the British medical journal Lancet. The U.S. department said further review is needed because the studies involved checks of patients' records and not clinical drug trials. The National Cancer In- stitute, the National Heart and Lung Institute, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Food and Drug Ad- ministration and the Veterans Administration already have made a preliminary review of the studies.

Based on current building plans, the U.S. atomic arsenal won't catch up for another five years, it added. China is developing an inter- continental missile capable of reaching the United States but it has not yet been tested, the institute said in a review of world military forces up to Julv. 1974. MONTREAL (CP) Par- tial public transit service was restored today following a 44- day strike by garage and maintenance workers which closed the subway and limited bus service. Full bus service and two of three subway lines were in op- eration today following an agreement reached Thursday between the Montreal Transport Union and the Montreal Urban Com- munity Transit Commission. A transit commission spokesman said the third sub- way line should be running Saturday. At a union meeting Thur- sday, attended by about half of the membership, the strikers voted unanimously to accept Quebec government proposals that will give them a choice of accepting a lump sum payment or indexing of their salaries to the cost of living. The workers walked off the job Aug. 7 protesting the sus- pension of 73 colleagues, who refused to work two statutory Parliamentary secretaries appointed OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Minister Trudeau an- nounced Thursday the ap- pointments of a deputy government whip and three new parliamentary secretaries.

The 73 workers will be rein- stated under terms of the agreement. The commission also promised not to take any disciplinary action against the strikers and dropped an 000 suit filed against the un- ion Union members will be able to choose whether they want to work statutory holidays.

Delegates from large cities said unemployment now ex- ceeds 20 per cent in some urban neighborhoods and more public service employ- ment should be created. In the health care field, where inflation has been in- creasing nearly 50 per cent faster than in the general economy, delegates demand- ed some kind of direct federal intervention.
