ALL YEAR 'ROUND Bef Antarctica May Airline Landing Site (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the seventh in a series of reports written by Independent, Press-Telegram military editor James A.

ALLEN MARBLE POINT, ANTARC- TICA, Nov. 5 (Delayed) Commercial jet airliners fly- ing routes across the Southern Hemisphere someday may land 12 months of the year at an international airport in Antarctica. It sounds fantastic, but the Navy says construction of a year-round rumvay is feasible on solid grojmd here in Vic- toria miles across McMurdo Sound from the op- erating base on Ross Island. Air operations in the Ant- arctic now can be carried out only a few months of the year, using ice runways for land planes, leveled snow runways for ski planes and open water for sea planes. This seriously limits this na- tion's scientific program in Antarctica. Rear Adm. George J. Du- fek, USN who com- manded the U.S. Naval Sup- port Force in Antarctica dur- ing the International Geo- physical Year, originated the search for a site for a land runway to overcome these obstacles. t HE THOUGHT he had (Continued Page A-4, Col. 2) Hunt Death GREATEST MEDICAL SURVEY L B.

They will be among families in the nation to fill out confidential questionnaires for the American Cancer Society. The survey will attempt to pinpoint any relationship between personal living habits and cancer." It will correlate the ftccurrence of cancer with such factors as heredity, environment, diet, occupational in- fluences, standards of living and air pollution. THE STUDY, WHICH BEGINS JAN 4, will not in- volve a medical examination. Distribution of question- naires will be completed in a two-week period. Dr. Robert S. Feldman has been named to head the study here. From now until Jan. 4 the harbor district office of the American Cancer Society will seek 500 volunteers to put the program into operation. Each volunteer will keep track of about 10 families for the next six years. THE VOLUNTEER WILL ASK members of a family to fill out a four-page comprehensive questionnaire, which will be scaled by the family for transmittal to New York.

Curtice, retired General Motors president, said today a onetime top aid he acci dentally shot and killed while they were duck hunting "might have stumbled and lurched" into the path of his shotgun just before he fired. Curtice made the statement at a news conference he called at his office here today to answer questions in con- nection with the tragic death Wednesday of Harry W. An- derson, 67, retired GM vice president. Curtice said it was his eighth trip to Ste. Anne's Is- land in the St. Clair River with Anderson and that ho had been on numerous other hunting trips with his friends. Ste. Anne's Island is located just between the United States and Canada.

Secretary Arthur S. Flem ming of the Department o: Health, Education and Wel- fare said cranberries already tested and found to be un- contaminated may be marketed if they contain this statement: "Examined and passed by the Food and Drug Adminis- tration of the U. S. Depart- ment of Health, Education and Welfare." Cranberries from lots total- ing more than four million nounds already have been :ested and found to be free of contamjnation from the weed killer aminotriazole. M Jj: FLEMMING SAID the plan, worked out with repre- sentatives of the cranberry industry would: 1. Assure proper testing of fresh cranberries and proc- essed cranberry products in all stages of wholesale and they are offered to the con- suming public. 2. Provide for approved la- bels which the housewife can look for to be sure the pack' age, can or bottle she buys is from tested cranberries. Flemming noted at a news conference that misuse of ap- proved statements on the label would constitute a crim- inal offense under the Food Drug and Cosmetic Act. The plan was based on pro- posals submitted Wednesday at a public hearing by the cranberry industry, but Flem- ming made modifications. The principal change was for labeling of tested cran- berries determined to be free of the weed killer which has caused cancer in laboratory tests on rats.
