Redlands Daily Pacts Monday, June 24, 1963 -7 SPECIAL TREATMENT - A maze of catwalks wind around the aeration tanks at the city's new sewerage treatment plant in the Santa Ana wash between Alabama and Nevdo streets. Air is blown info these fonks to speed up digestion of solids by means of oxidation. Guided tours of the unique facility were conducted lost Friday. (Doily Facts photos by Clifford J. Kenison) OWN GAS PRODUCERS - Gas created by the two large sewerage digestion tanks in the background will be pumped into the long tank in the foreground where it will be stored as fuel to power the blower engines used in oxidotion treat­ ment described in photo ot left. The $730,000 plant is scheduled to be put into operation in mid-July following installation of outfall pipes. Only one of Its kind Sewage treatment plant begins operation soon The only sewerage treatment plant of its kind in the United States will be put into operation in Redlands in mid-July, Carl F. Canfield, city Sewer Division superintendent, announced today. Redlands voters who approved a bond issue to finance the new treatment plant today have a unique $730,000 facility which has been praised by sanitation engineers from across the nation. It is located in the Santa Ana wash between Alabama and Nevada streets. Canfield stated that the treatment plant will be in operation as soon as outfall lines are installed to effluent spreading grounds constructed by the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District. Effluent will emerge from the plant as nearly pure water. "Vir­ tually as much water will be put back into the ground as comes into the plant," Canfield noted. He explained that the plant functions on an activated sludge system featuring variations which speed up the digestion ot solid material through a procedure developed in France thai provides a proper environment for a quicker and more economical action. The plant is designed for a capacity operation based on a 50,000 population. It can handle 2.5 million gallons per day. As the need increases, up to 5 million gallons daily will be treated. Much of the plant is underground. The above-ground structures include digestion tanks, gas storage tanks, office, control room and laboratory building, and drying beds.

The demonstrations were expected to affect most government offices, as well as private enterprises which are not taking part in the "general strike" which has crippled British Guiana for more than two months. If they follow the pattern of fenced and within a few years will be surrounded by a flood-control levee which will be constructed as a result of the county's cut-and-fill disposal program now in operation east of the treatment plant. such displays in the past, the demonstrators will march through Georgetown and outlying communities, singing anti-Jagan and anti- Communist songs and occasionally dancing. Some concern was expressed over the possibility that police might fire on demonstrators, as they did two weeks ago, but anti-! Jagan leaders said they would go ahead with the demonstrations despite the risk. The d>namiters who have been staging a "bomb a day" campaign against the government set off a token explosion Sunday night at the heavily-guarded Home Affairs (police) Ministry headquarters of Jagan's wife, the former Janet Rosenberg of Chicago. No one who appeared suspicious was in the vicinity of the building when the blast occurred, and it appeared that a slow-fused stick of dynamite had been tossed on to the roof of the ministry, perhaps hours before. The dynamite had lodged in a drainpipe. No one was injured by the explosion and damage was slight. Neither Mrs. Jagan. who took over the Home .Ministrj- last week in addition to her duties as a colonial senator and secretarj- general of the ruling PPP party, nor any other official was in the ministry at the time. 8 TUBE — AM-FiW — A.

Science Editor NEW YORK (UPI» -It now has been demonstrated with hard figures that those who drink ex cessively and habitually pay for it by dying sooner than they would have otherwise. Mcuiy people have always believed it but usually they're not alcoholic, heretofore mathematical proof—or disproof—has been lacking. Vital statistics do not say whether their subjects were alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Michiko Tashiro, a statistician, and Dr. Wendell R. Lipscomb had the makings for such an unique set of figures in tic records of the California State Alcoholic Rehabilitation Organization. They are members ot its scientific staff. Living and Dead To its four alcoholism treatment centers 1,692 men and women were admitted in a three- year period beginning in 1954. Tashiro and Lipscomb checked back on them all and separated the presently living from (he dead. This gave them two sets of statistics, a sur\'ival table and a mortality table. These they compared to the same tables for the California population as a whole, making proper statistical and adjustments for age. sex and race in order to get mathematically precise comparisons. For the five year period under consideration, the hea^-y drinkers sur\'ived only 91 per cent as well as their opposite numbers in the general population, demonstrating, the scientists said, that "alcoholics do not live as many years" as they might. Death Rates Compared To verify this, they compared! mortality tables. The average an-' nual death rate of the alcoholics figured out to 26 per 1,000. In the general population the rate was II per 1.000. Thus, the death rate among alcoholics was ahnost 2 1-2 to 1. As to the causes of death, 24 per cent of the alcoholics died of violence (accidents and suicides) and for the general population violent deaths amounted to 9 per cent. The ne.\t most common cause of death in alcoholics was heart disease, 23 per cent. Then came cirrhosis of the liver, 14 per cent The comparable percentages for the general population was 4 and 3. Tashiro and Lipscomb were struck by how hard it had beat to ascertain the actual cause of death in most of the 124 deceased alcoholics. The autopsy rate reached 73 per cent (compared to 34 per cent in the general population! and they reminded that autopsies usually are performed when there is some doubt as to the cause of death. This could only mean "the morbid conditions of the alcoholics were frequently so complex that the cause of death was difficult to determine," they said in their report to the Center for Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N. J. NIXON MEETS NASSER CAIRO. U.A.R. (UPD-Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon met Sunday with U.A.R. President Gamal Abdel Nasser and praised his "strong personality, intelligence, wisdom, and immense knowledge." Ni.\on did not disclose what he discussed with Nasser. Your Feef And You; Foot Surgery For the chronic foot sufferer nothing is more comforting than the immediate relief obtained from routine treatment by the Podiatrist - Foot Specialist. When the relief is only temporaiy and pain soon returns necessitating frequent visits to the Foot Doctor, corrective foot surgery is frequently the most practical and rewarding answer. Often foot conditions are disfiguring, making the foot unsightly and the patient self-conscious. These disfigurements make shoes difficult to fit and stylish footgear almost impossible to wear. Walking can be exceptionally painful and create a hardship on the feet and the entire body posture. Pressure areas are created causing corns and ingrown nails. Many of these foot problems can be solved by corrective siu-gery by your Podiatrist-Foot Specialist. The foot problems which may be corrected surgically are many and varied. Permanent relief and correction can be obtained by foot surgery. Many chronic foot and toe problems are solved by surgery . . . and surgery should be considered. This has been presented by the California Podiatry Association as a public service. (Adv.) ^•^•^ fit
