Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, September 29, 1971 T NEW DOORWAY Roaring success is ihe slope's opinion of Ihe decoralive new doorway on a London bou- named "Tyger, council- men of the British capital's Kensington section think other- wise. Seeking to spruce up and dignify the area, they view the glass fibre feline as an eyesore and are press- ing for its removal. Scant progress in poison fight By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) Canada is having scant success with the fight against accidental and de- liberate poisonings, says a sev- en-year study of experience in the country's poison control centres. This calls for a close look at the circnnsfamccs under which these incidents occur and for stronger preventive measures These conclusions were dis- tributed Monday irilh the poison study lo all doctors and hospi- tals in Rx Bulletin, the federal food and drug directorate's montly publication. A consistent major villain during the 1863-69 period was the headache remedy containing acetylsalicylic acid altlmugh as a proportion of 'all poison re- ports it declined to about 20 per cent from 25 per cent. 2-YEAR-OLDS BUSY Inquisitive two-year-olds ac- counted for 29 per cent of all poisonings. And it wasn't be- cause they were unatlended at the time. In 90 per cent of the pre- school poison cases checked, one or both parenls were caring for the child when the poison was taken. Children under age five con- tinued to head the list of poison victims at 63.3 per cent of re- ported cases in 1969 against 75.6 seven years previously. But the big change came in the group above age to, who represented 19 per cent of re- ported cases in 1969 against 11 in 1963. The sludy says this presum- ably reflects increasing involve- ment of poison control centres in trealing rases of drug abuse and attempled suicide. The number of centres rose to 291 from 162 and tola! [wison- ings reported climed 123 per cent to from Deaths among reported cases rose to 100 from 61 in the same period. DON'T SEE ALL The centres see only a propor- tion of all that happen. In Statistics Canada recorded deaths from accidental and other poisonings, including in- dustrial mishaps and suicides. Headache tablets, listed as ASA for Ihe active ingredient, accounted for nearly one- quarter of poisonings in children under age five. Cleaning and polishing compounds ranked next in Ihis age group. Among persons over 25, more than half the poisonings were due to tranquilizers, sedatives or barbiturates. Nearly all were attempled suicides. Cases of LSD poisoning, first reported in 196C, totalled 390 by 1969. The study found that aspirin, Javex and Ex-Lax were the three most frequently reported poison agents. Extrasensory perception study is recommended SAN FRANCISCO (AP) As- tronaut Edgar D. Mitchell says extrasensory perception should be studied seriously and receive "a respectable place in the sci- entific community." Mitchell, who conducted an unofficial ESP experiment on the Apollo 14 moon mission, dis- cusses his feelings in an inter- view published in the October issue of Psychic, a bimonthly magazine w i I. h headquarters here. Mitchell's unofficial experi- ment consisted of trying to send his thoughts over hundreds of miles of space by projecting them to four collaborators mi earth. "I intend lo use all my cf forts, as time Mitch- ell says, to bring ESP "into a respectable place in the scien- tific community." The results of the experiment in space, he said, were roughly about as successful as those he had conducted before leaving earth. Mitchell says help was given him in analyzing the results by Dr. J. B. Rhine of the Founda- tion for Research on the Nature of Man, Durham, N.D., and Dr. Karlis Osis of (he American So- ciefy for Physical Research, New York. Mile-hell, who holds a 'loelo rale in aeronautics and astron- autics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, says he Ixilievc.s there is "intelligent life in Ihe than likely in our own nnfl that man will sometime make conlnct with inlclligcnt life from other solar systems. ''And I'm not so sure that you need the space program for that. This may be extremely far out and hypothetical, but if IJie phenomenon of astral projection lias any validity whatsoever, it might be a perfectly valid form of inter-galactic travel, and a lot safer probably than space flight." Astral projection holds that a person can leave his physical body while his conscious teing and senses travel unlimited dis- tances.
