TORONTO CP) Two Tor onto doctors are completing the first year's operation of a "smoking withdrawal centre' to find out why people smoke, to help heavy smokers . break the habit and to study the ; effect of smoking on human health. . Financed by federal health ; grants, the experimental program has . been carried out among 2M civic employees, all previous smokers of more than 3 cigarettes a day, by Dr. G. , W.

TEST SMOKING EFFECT The second phase involves precise medical tests designed to discover the exact physiological effects of smoking, particularly on the respiratory and circulatory systems. One machine used, a "gas diffusion analyser," measures the amount of gas passing bom a smoker's lungs into the bloodstream. Such information is vital to the study of chronic bronchitis and empbyaamai two diseases which involve tissue breakdown in the lungs and bronchial system. A second machine tests the effectiveness of the smoker's respiratory system by measuring his chest expansion and the regularity of his breathing. Blood tests to determine toxic carbon monoxide: levels and measurements of body fat are also taken. 235-2200 Nm EMtra wxtiaut obligation. missioner of Junior Hockey to Saskatchewan. .

He formerly lived with bis father in the apartment be Is now occupying at 220 Powell Avenue. Centre' Puff The ultimate aim of the pro gram, says Dr. Moss, is not the finding of a cure for lung cancer but rather a fast, simple way to detect It In its early stages. A sputum smear test, much like that used to detect cervical cancer in women, is the most promising project in"' this field, says Dr. Moss. Such a test, when fully de veloped, will be good enough to trace the progress of tissues as they deteriorate from a normal state to the "absolute change of lung cancer." 'It takes years to develop hing cancer, but we will be able to follow it in steps." Communist UN Missions Are in 'Capitalist Homes' UNITED NATIONS (AP) By a st r a n g e ideological twist. some Communist nations are housing their missions' to the United Nations in New York in old homes linked by close fam ily ties to. some of the wealthiest capitalists in American history. Most prominent among the moguls of business and finance whose , money went into these handsome Manhattan town- houses is Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, founder of the great Vanderbilt fortune. my answer; 'Ww VHWvn 1 find myself dwelling on me and my problems more and more. How 'can I get away from myself? M. F. Fenelon once said: "Never let us be discouraged with ourselves. It is not when we are conscious of our faults that we are the most wicked; on t h e contrary, we are less so. We see by a brighter light; and let us remember for our con- 'solation that we never perceive our sins until we begin to cure ! them." Self - examination js all right if we do it constructively, instead of negatively. If you dwell en your problems, your weaknesses, yon only compound your misery and plight. But if we think of what we might become by the grace of God, and set out to make improve ment, self contemplation can be a profitable exercise. A sure sign of self-improvement' is when you begin ' to think of others. A man said to me one day: "When I begin to (eel sorry for myself, I hurry down across the tracks and try to. bring -a rsy of sunshine to those who are much worse off than ft- When I -share my self, my goods, and my love with the, poor and discouraged, I find my heart blessed and filled with gratitude to God."

The world of boyhood was divided into two classes: those wealthy enough to afford chewing gum, and those who simply gouged out some tar in the street in summer -and chewed it . The biggest excitement in small towns was generally caused either by runaway horses or dog fights. A number of foreign governments have bought old homes in a fashionable east side district just off Fifth Avenue for use as headquarters for their UN delegations. The homes are considered the choicest residential real estate in Manhattan, and many have been singled out by the city for designation as historic landmarks. The UN missions that use old homes are in a minority among the 122 member nations. Most have their headquarters In conventional office buildings. Only three delegations the United States, Britain and France-have office space in the UN buildings, and these small, inconspicuous rooms are by no means their main headquarters and are used sparingly. BOUGHT NEW QUARTERS The Soviet Union at one time owned a five - storey, neo- Georgian mansion on Park Avenue but became cramped for space in 1962 and bought a modern 12 - storey apartment building for its headquarters. The Park Avenue mansion which the Russians owned for more than a dozen years, was built In 1909 for Percy Rhring-ton Pyne II. His fortune came from the estate of his grand father, Moses Taylor, a trader in Cuban sugar, a speculator In rails and utilities and a partner with Cyrus W.

ERBSEN RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) - The government of President Arthur da Costa e Silva has completed its first 100 days and the general impression in Brazil Is that it has achieved little. "There is a feeling of drift' says the newspaper Jornal de Brazil. "They haven't moved from dead centre," says a diplomat. A Joke goes: "A man was ar rested for planning an attack on the president. 'He was going to throw an alarm clock into his office." It made the rounds after Costa e Suva's office in Brasilia announced that the '' president takes a long lunch period and. a siesta each day. Since the 04-year-old retired army marshal was sworn in March IS, political activity has been at a virtual standstill and Costa e Silva'r cabinet mem bers have operated their minis tries pretty much as Independ ent fiefs with little co-ordina tion. Some have been busy snip ing at each other. Activity In Congress has been largely limited to Intramural squabbles in the absence of ma- lor problems or legislative pro grams to discuss. Only the op position has been talking in term of broad Issues, but it has no power to do anything but talk.

The opposition, outnumbered two to one, boycotted the election.; Wilson's Broadway I 1 ii - i LONDON During the other! war in the '40's.

With representatives from vir tually every taction of the gov ernment's heterogenous National Renewal Alliance in his cabinet as well as several army men, Costa e Silva has tried to give his government a broad foundation. But he. has ended up In stead with a ponderous structure that hardly moves. The administration's lack of activity and the penchant of its members for travelling extensively within the country and abroad has already brought sharp criticism from virtually ail segments of the press, including those which normally support the government.
