' 1 ! 12 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat., Aug. 15,1970 Longer life trend slowing, says expert Los Angeles Times Service BERKELEY, Calif. - The long-standing international trend toward longer lives has come to a halt as far as English-speaking men are concerned, according to a University of California population expert. He blames the change on cigarettes. S. H. Preston, assistant professor of demography at UC Berkeley, said the bad news applies to males of all the English-speaking countries. He studied mortality figures in the United States, Canada, England and Wales, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand, and compared them with similar statistics in western Europe. Preston said the English-speaking nations are alike in showing shorter life expectancy for males. They are also alike in smoking the most cigarettes per capita. Life expectancy of newborn children in western nationas has doubled in the last century and a half, and has increased for all groups since World War I. However, since 1945 the life expectancy of males in English-speaking nations has failed to improve as much as it has for other groups, and in some of them it has slowed to a stop. In Scotland life expectancy for males has actually shown a slight decrease. Preston said the expected duration of life for an American male at age 40 increased less than two years between 1920 an 1966. During that same period the life expectancy of a 40-year-old American woman increased seven years, from 30 to 37 more years. According to the Berkeley demographer, the 40-year-old American man in More Samuel H. Preston 1920 could expect to live another 29.3 years. Now a 40-year-old American male can expect to live 31 more years. The "excess" deaths of English-speaking males are directly traceable, he said, to increases in the incidence of heart and circulatory disease, lung cancer and bronchitis, the "diseases which have been most directly linked with cigarette smoking. The statistical correlation between heart and circulatory disease rates and cigarette consumption is a striking example. lUOre -rr £t s^-rr about f A set to OK aid to Tfiais Continued from Page 1 port is now being extended to Cambodian troops." There have been recurrent reports that the Thais were dickering with the United States over financial assistance for any troops they send to Cambodia. The Thais are training 3,000 ethnic Cambodians living in Thailand and the first contingent of an eventual 2,000 Cambodian soldiers who will be sent to Thailand for training. State Department officials said that though there was no agreement, U.S. officials had made it clear to the Thais that they will get aid for the troops. One problem, according to the officials, is that the aid must come out of American military assistance to Cambodia. The officials say that since the size of military aid to Cambodia for the fiscal. year has not been decided, it is difficult to discuss what amount the Thais can be given. Some observers argue, however, that Congress may have questions about whether the Thais are entitled to aid. State Department officials say that the ethnic Cambodian soldiers to be provided by the Thais will be eligible for American assistance if they are integrated into the Cambodian army. One reportedly unresolved question is whether the Thais will allow the ethnic Cambodians to come under Cambodian military control. The question that observers have raised is whether, even then, the ethnic Cambodians become Cambodian forces under the meaning of the American military assistance program. In response to a question, the State Department spokesman said that it was not clear whether the administration will have to ask Congress for special legislation to authorize the aid. He also said it would be possible for troops recruited or trained in Thailand to enter Cambodia at the end of the month regardless of whether a final agreement on American aid is reached by then. Congressional testimony has disclosed that, under a secret agreement made in 1967, the United States has been paying Thailand $50 million a year for sending a combat division to South Vietnam. To encourage Thailand to send the unit, the United States also agreed to increase its military assistance by $30 million for two years and to supply Thailand with a battery of antiaircraft missiles. The Thais recently have indicated that they might withdraw part or all of the division from Vietnam. State Department officials say that Thailand weighed the possibility of sending regular Thai forces to Cambodia, but decided against it when the military situation in Cambodia began to appear less desperate and when the United States indicated it probably could not provide funds for the troops. Reliable sources report that American analysts are divided on the question of whether Thailand would send regular forces into Cambodia if an emergency situation developed. Fire in Hill's auto arson TUCSON (AP) - Arson investigators said yesterday the fire which destroyed the auto of David Lee Hill, frequent visitor at the home of Mafia figure Joseph Bonanno here, was deliberately set. Capt. Lynn Gilmore said all other possibilities have been ruled out. Keel laying for carrier NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — David Eisenhower II will etch his name on a brass plaque today at a keel-laying ceremony for a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to be named for his famous grandfather, the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As David etches his name, the assembly will be suspended from a 310-ton gantry crane, the nation's largest. When the signature is completed, the crane will roll along its tracks and lower the keel assembly into the shipway where the $510 million flat-top will be built over a five-year period. The shipway in which the l.OPMoot, 94,400-ton Eisenhower will be built adjoins one in which her sister ship, the Chester W. Nimitz, was started in June 1968. The Njrnitz is named for the admiral of World War II fame. Mrs. Ihe J' Mamie Eisenhower, v,jd,,v, ami POOL OWNERS SAVE! BILL SEZ: HONEST!!
