Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ALMOST KISS OF DEATH LONDON (AP) A parrot- lover who gavo his pet the kiss of life almost killed himself, a team of scientists reports. He was taken to hospital.with severe stomach pains and com- plaining he had eaten some bad food, the public health labora- tory service reported in tha British Medical Journal. Doctors were baffled when their treatment produced no re- sults. The man not identi- fied grew worse, developing heart and lung trouble. Then his wile remembered that just before his illness her husband had tried to revive his dying parrot by giving it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The parrot died. Tlic physicians treated the man for "parrot disease" psittacosis. Jle recovered. And, the scientists added, so did his wife. She had contract- ed an illness akin to influenza from cleaning out the parrot's cage. Booming profits only months away By FRED COLEMAN LONDON (AP) British business is only months away from its best chance for boom- ing profits since the Second World War: Entry into the Eu- ropean Common Market. But the immediate outlook remains grim. On Jan. 1, Britain will take into the world's richest trading club some of the worst eco- nomic credentials in near stagnant growth, record strike losses, an unstable cur- rency, its lughest unemploy- ment since Hie 1930s and ramp- ant inflation. Opportunities abound as Brit- ain's nearest and best custom- ers progressively take tar- iff barriers during a planned transition period. Britain's present home market of 55 mil- lion people will be replaced by 300 million Europeans in the ex- panded 10-nation community. By some forecasts here, re- moval of the tariff walls will boost British trade by more than million a year, more than enough to meet higher food prices and other costs of joining Europe. VIEWED TWO WAYS But entry is a doable-edged sword. European, members will Ire free to outsell the British here if they can. Under the present tariff system, their sales to Britain are already 30 per cent higher than British sales to the Common Market countries. Prime Minister Edward Heath's Conservative govern- ment won office in June, 1970, promising to put the economy right. It still has a long way to go. Inflation is running at aboul nine per cent and unemploy- ment around a million. Capital nvestmcnt nears record lows despite generous tax cut incen- :ives to business. Economic growth for the year is expected :o be between one and three per cent. For British businesses, strikes a crucial problem. The country lost more than 13 mil- lion man-days of work last year because of stoppages a recort since Ihe 1920 general strike This year the total for the first eight months Is already higher more than 15 million days. HAD TOP PRIORITY Heath made a controversla strike-control law his top prior ity in domestic legislation, de- spite total opposition from the trade unions. The law, enactet early this year, failed to pre- vent crippling strikes and may have aggravated them. Industrial unrest continues Unions see the strike law as an inhibition on their collecliv bargaining powers and want revoked. The government re- fuses. More trouble appea certain. Meanwhile, industrial troubles and trade losses forced Britai to let the pound float down in in ternational currency markets since June, outside fixed change rates. The governmen refuses to name a date for res tabilizing the pound. This coul help in tiie Common Market be- cause the cheaper pound re duces British export prices. The British press tended to blame the float on foreign spec- ulators losing confidence in Britain. Foreigners have lost faith in this country before, dur- ing (lie dark days of the blitz for example, and been proven wrong.

Wednesday, Septembar 17, 1972 THE IETHMIDGI HBtAlD Scottish island becomes oil drilling headquarters LONDON" (CP) Wilh oil play in the British sector of the North Sea moving into the tur- bulent waters northeast of the Shetland Islands, oil companies are looking at the historic naval anchorage of Scapa Flow as a possible base for northern oper- ations. Already British Petroleum Co. and Shell UK Exploration and Producton Ltd., working for the Shell-Esso partnership in this venture, have established the position of two major oilfields farther soutii, off the Scottish coast. As Shell moves its own Brit- ish-built floating rig SLaflo into the more northern waters, sup- ported by an American Southeast Drilling and BP begins further seismic sur- veys of similar areas the two British companies have been considering Scapa as a possible forward supply base. Sedco has also been looking at it as a possible base of opera- tions for its steadily growing American fleet of deep-sea drill- ing rigs. IS IDEAL SHELTER Scapa Flow Is a wide expanse of sheltered water enclosed by the southern section of the Or- kney Islands. It was the opera- lional base of the Royal Navy's powerful Home Fleet in the first half of this century. The surren- dered German fleet scuttled it- self at anchor in Scapa Flow after the First World War. This ideal shelter in stormy waters could become Uie base for the new generation of drill- ing units being built for Shell, three of which wil be self-pro- pelled floating structures of some tons displacement able to drill wells afXXi feet deep in 600 feet or more. They will be suited to probing theM far northern waters which are 400-500 feet deep. A fourth rig being built will be one of the largest capacity jack-up platforms in the world with a triangular deck resting on three retractable legs 440 feet long. BP will also be working in area, in one case in partnership with Iranian Oil Co. (UK) Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Iranian Oil Co., which has an equal share in a govern- ment lease of two blocks about 100 miles east of Lcrwick in the Shetland's. NIOC has become the first Middle East oil com- pany to enter the North Sea oil search. SEARCH IN ORKNEYS BP will also be seeking oil west of the Orkneys and in the approaches to the Bristol Chan- nel off south Ireland.
