Pagp 2\ NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Fla., Thursday, September 13,1973 NAnONM WIAtMl MIVKI lOMCMI M TfHk Itl « -I* - 71 WASHINGTON (UPI) -Ac- coi'ding to a survey in the current issue of the magazine Hufnan Behavior, the Defense Department provided technical assistance for 168 Hollywood war films produced between 1948 and 1970. The magazine implied there was something unseemly about the Pentagon letting picture studios make use of military personnel and equipment. But when we consider the alternative, we can see that the cooperation of the U.S. armed forces in these pictures clearly was in the national interest. The alternative would have be^n for the studios to maintain their own armed forces. Which would have made recent international negotiations enormously more complicated. It was tough enough getting the Soviet Union to agree to a strategic arms limitation treaty. Imagine what the SALT Movie Complex? talks would have been like if Henry Kissinger, the chief U.S. negotiator, had been required to deal simultaneously with the USSR and MGM. Kissinger appears to get along well with heads of state, but he is quite unaccustomed to bargaining with heads of studios. Most of his experience has been with starlets. It is easy to see what would have happened when Kissinger proposed a cutback in the production of nuclear submarines. The Soviets " would have balked, claiming it needed a larger Navy to match the sea power of Paramount. And you can bet Paramount would have refused to sign any pact reducing its fleet unless there was an equivalent retrenchment in the air force. Make no mistake about it, a studio arms race would have made it far more difficult to SUMMER CLEARANCE • SALE ic BIG-BIG SAVINGS!!

For how could the Pentagoh justify selling Phantom Jets to Israel unless it also made warplanes available to 20th Century Fox? It is doubtful that any President, however dedicated to disarmament, could have withstood the pressures of the military -industrial-movie complex. The wisdom of Defense Department cooperation in war films is particularly apparent at this time when the United States is trying to presuade NATO nations in Europe would be meaningless if the studios had large standing armies. The Europeans would simply arrange for a remake of "All's Quiet on the Western Front.'' Quirks CARSON CITY. Nev. (UPI). —Nevada's lucrative wedding and divorce business is dropping off because more people are living together without getting married, a state official believes. Jack Homeyer, state chief of vital statistics, said marriages dropped four per cent and divorces 20 per cent in the first six months of the year. "More and more people are trying to find the right partner before they get married," said Homeyer, who said he had no data to support his belief. SALT LAI^TITY (UPI) — The early bird always seems to come out ahead, even when he dies.

Mothers-to-Be Warned On X-Rays BRIEFS SPOKANE. Wash. (UPI) Whitworth football coach Hugh Campbell was having a little trouble describing to sportswriters just how small some of his starters were.

Dr. Roberts Rugh said there also are seven questionable diagnostic X-ray procedures. Fifty-six other types of X-ray examinations now appear relatively safe although they too could expose a developing child to some radiation. Many more X-ray tests would not affect an embryo. "Most diagnoMic procedures, as far as we can tell at the moment, are either harmless or relatively harmless," Rugh said at a news conference. "There are only a few that should be restricted.'' "The physician must therefore consider and balance the benefit to the mother against the risk to the fetus," he said in a paper written with Dr. William Leach and presented Tuesday to the International Radiation Protection Association. -Rugh aiid i/Bach a jresearch scientists] with Biireau (MeRedbloRloarHealth.

The most crucial time is the first 42 day period after conception. Rugh said the mother's health should have priority. He said he personally would recommend a therapeutic abortion if the fetus were exposed to one of the three high radiation x-ray procedures. They are abdi)minal-ray filming of the aorta, a large artery; similar X-ray photography of an abdominal artery; and Xray filming of the urinary bladder. Rugh said each procedure could expose an embryo to a radiation doseof 20rads. Saturday forecasters were watching a disturbance near the Yucatan Peninsula, but said no tropical storm development was expected through the weekend.

The center also said a tropical wave 600 miles east of the Leeward Islands Is not expected to develop any further through Sunday. NEW ORLEANS (UPI) - District Attorney Jim Garrison grew frustrated with his lawyers Wednesday and indicated he wanted to handle his own defense against federal bribery charges. "The judge told attorneys to come back early and I'll be here when the attorneys are. That should give you some clue," Garrison said during a recess. He refused to elaborate, saying the trial had reached a "delicate stage" and that events should not be discussed openly. A motion for a mistrial also appeared likely because of remarks by the judge. WASHINGTON -One of two senators who were allowed to see a secret FBI report on White house wiretapping said Wednesday he still has high hopes for Henry Kissinger's confirmation as Secretary of State. Senator John Sparkman. a Democrat, said he sees nothing in the report that will delay Kissinger's Senate approval.
