Gfllesburg Register-Moil^ Gdlesburg; Friday, June 11, 19731.1 East European Nations Favor Summit But Apprehensive About Effect tit. fttft» UMIflnnit M. JL By PHtL NEWSOM , UPI Foreign News Analyst East European Communist bloc nations view the Nixon- Brezhnev talks with mixed feellngfl. Foreign News Commentary On the one hand Improved relations between the United States and the Soviet Union opens the way for them to Improve their own economies and standards of living through Increased access to Western products and know-how. On Hie other hand are the misgivings shared by the Soviet Union itself over the effects on their own populations of increased contacts with Western ideas and peoples. Among the small nations there also is the fear that the Russians may be bartering away to the United States and West Germany some of the oil and other materials upon which they have come to depend for their own.economic planning. A case in point is the huge Occidental Petrolcum-El Paio Gas project covering export of Siberian gas. New Willingness Emerges Within the bloc Hungary has almost no raw materials of Us own and depends upon the Soviet Union for up to 90 per cent of its supplies. The Hungarians are now planning for beyond 1960 and are pressing the Russians for estimates of what they can expect. On the other side of the coin Is a statement issued in the name of COMECON, the Communist bloc's trade organization, after a meeting in Prague early this month. "Member countries confirmed their wilEngness to develop economic relations with other countries, regardless of their social and state systems on the basis of equality, mutual advantage, and non-interference in internal affairs," the statement said. Beneath the cautious wording was a new willingness to enter into cooperative projects with the Western nations. West Germany, France and Italy already have investments in some bloc nations and are planning to invest in others. But, while eager for expanded economic relations, the Communists also are throwing up what safeguards they can against an invasion of Western ideas. At a meeting in Warsaw in May, Konstantin Katushev, a trusted lieutenant of Brezhnev, called for "complete ideological and organizational coordination" within the bloc against dissidents and revisionists at home. Similar calls came from other speakers and suggested the fears not only were concerned with Western ideas but also with a growth of Maoism among the younger workers. In some respects the Communists already are admitting they are powerless to halt the flow of ideas completely. It is impossible for them to isolate their people completely from the increasing flood of Western tourists. And neither Czechoslovakia nor West Germany can cut off Western television without jamming their own stations. r D /family Even One Cigaret Can Be Harmful I - -M'i), Dr. Lamb By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr Lamb — I am an ex- smoker and have recently read one of your articles about tobacco. Why do people who write about the daggers of cigarets always say that when anyone smokes two packages of ciga­ rets a day, and inhales them, it is harmful? The truth is that even under a pack a day is harmful to a person's health. I beilieve if you would say ciga­ ret smoking in any amount is dangerous It would cause more people to give tihem up. My husband Unas smoked for years and has a terrible cough, and he never feels good. He has left them off for as long as two weeks, and in that short a time he feels better, eats better, and his cough gets better, but he starts smoking one and eventually four cigarets a day and the next thing you know, he's feeling bad again. He has never smoked two packs a day, but they definitely hurt him. Most articles leave the impression that up to two packs a day won't harm your health, so why don't you tell the people the truth. Dear Reader — If I've ever given the impression that any amount of smoking is all right for a person's health, it certainly has not been my. intention. Studies show that beginning with one cigaret, the more one] smokes, the more likely there! is to be difficulty. I agree that a pack of ciga­ rets a • djay is Iprmful. Even three or four cigarets a day can -be hiammful. A person who's been treasonably heavy smoker then cuts down, but continues to smoke even one or •two cigarets a diay, will not get the full benefits that he should Some of .these cellular changes tlwiail Review created a na • if 1 . _ . • 1 » • t • . seem to be maintained even by small amounts of the cigaret illiberal circles. . . . Kfnt. LI' smoke. Certainly anyone who has a cough and ether problems associated with cigarets should stop smoking immediately. If you've read very many of my columns you know that I also feel that being forced to inhale the cigaret smoke from other people is also bad for your health. Dear Dr. Lamb — If exercise is so important how come bedridden patients can survive 30 or 40 years and live until their 70s without hardly moving? Dear Reader — In the first plpce, not many of them do So the basic assumption implied in your question isn't necessarily true. There are examples of individuals who do Jive a long time at bed rest or with other disabling factors that prevent physical activity. One safeguard these people have is that they are unable to go out and engage in physical activity beyond the limits of their capability. They are not likely to sit before the television set and stuff themselves with potato chips and cheese dips and then run to catch the bus.

(Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Racism 'Not Issue 9 in Genetic Studies By MURRAY OLDBRMAN 0 RIND A, Calif.

And the headlines, like in Newsweek—' Born Dumb.' They crer ated an emotional block to considering what I was saying. It turns people off." Jensen's studies in the Berkeley school systemi-iideal for him because 40 per cent of the students were black—convinced him that intelligence was 80 per cent due to heredir by and since blacks consistently scored 15 points lower in IQ tests, there was a strong genetic factor in that difference. AT STANFORD, another renowned scientist, Nobel Lau- erate William Staokley has' been saying virtually the same thing. "But I've been interested only in the educational impli­ cations of genetic difference," notes Jensen. "He approaches it with something he calls dysgenics, or dswmbreeding. I try to avoid being flamboyant and provocative. He likes to shock." Shocfcley would encourage limiting the birth ,rate of the genetically disadvantaged (i.e., blacks) because their disproportionate reproduction" threatens "genetic enslavement." He also practices an arrogant intelleotualism in which any prospective interviewer must prove to him (Shockley) that he's intelligent enough to merit an audience.

When he was a graduate student at Columbia University, Jensen remembers hearing about Henry Garrett, a psychologist who espoused genetic inferiority of blacks, and thinking, "He's probably not a good guy. "Then at a faculty party in Berkeley," he adds, "his name came up and I said, 'Yes, but isn't Garrett crazy and senile?' It reflected my attitude about people who believed Negroes were genetically inferior. "NOW I'VE HAD a chance to igo back and read 'his writr ings again and I don't think he was far off. Yet I don't like to be associated with his work in this area but he won'ti name for fear of embarrassing thorn. "I haven't thought the notoriety I've received is good for the image of a scientist," he muses. As a footnote, ho was noli paid for the original 1969 article which created all the furor. In fact, he had to pay for reprints. But from his studies have come two books. One, "Genetics and Education," was published this spring and is a basic review of his position as an educational psyohotogist and notes the storm of protest. Coming out in the fall, coinciding with his return to teaching, is the blockbuster— "Educability and Group Differences"—'which concentrates ai 'most entirely on the race issue (and for which he received a $15,000 advance against royalties). JENSEN HAS FELT the pressure of his studies. The Berkeley school system has refused to cooperate in fur­ ther research. He used to be on the ballot for office in the American Psychological Association. No more. Job offers, which faculty at a prestigious university such as Berkeley attracts, ceased. Graduate students no longer chose him as itheir main professor. But his studies in the sensitive field of genetic differences igo on, impervious to consequences.
