ROME (AP) - The Soviet Union is
applying pressure to scuttle Chinese ef-
forts to buy arms in Western Europe.
Western diplomats say Moscow may
lean especially hard on Italy where the
Soviets feel they have more strings to
Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev
wrote letters in late December to Italy,
Britain, France, and West Germany
warning of unspecified "consequences''
if they sold weapons to China.
ITALY HAS negotiated major com-
mercial agreements with China, but
has not taken a formal position and
some businessmen fear further delay
may hurt their chances to get in on the
China market. Some military deals are
reportedly near conclusion.
West Germany, facing the Warsaw
Pact countries on the eastern border,
has decided not to sell arms to China.
France says it will sell only "some
defensive weapons" to China.
Italy's sluggish economy is hungry
for what could be huge orders from
China. Pending agreements range from
an estimated $1 billion deal by the giant
automaker Fiat to develop a tractor in-
dustry in China to sales of missiles and

sophisticated weapons parts.
"THE CHINESE have made clear to
us that nations that sell arms to them
will get preference in commercial
deals," says an Italian electronics
executive who asked not to be iden-
tified. "Privately, they put it more,
bluntly - no arms, no business."
Of the four countries known to have
received the Brezhnev letter, Italy is
the most vulnerable to Soviet pressure.
Italy imports 25 per cent of its natural
gas and 7.5 per cent of its oil from the
Soviet Union, an important con-
sideration, especially in light of the
Iranian crisis. However, two tankers
loaded with China's first shipments of
crude oil to Western Europe recently
arrived in Genoa.
ITALY HAS a strong Communist
Party. While most Italian political par-
ties condemned Brezhnev's letter as in-
terference in Italian affairs, the com-
munists, who claim independence from
Moscow, have remained silent.
Italy is in the midst of forming a new
government, a task the Italian com-
munists could make difficult, even im-
possible, since they control about one-
third of the Parliament.

And while the lure of the Chinese
market is strong, Italy sells more than
$1 billion worth of goods a year to the
Soviets, sales which could be jeopar-
dized by an arms deal with China.
THE SOVIET concern was repeated
by Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko
during his five-day visit here last mon-
Britain rejected the Brezhnev letter
as interference in its foreign policy and
is said to be ready to sell China British
Harrier vertical-takeoff attack planes.
China reportedly wants 80 to 90
Harriers, with spare parts and training
facilities at a cost of around $350
million. .The Chinese indicate they
would like up to 300 Harriers if China
could produce them under license.
British sources say the government
of Prime Minister James Callaghan
will sell only defensive arms to China
on a cash basis and only with approval
of the Atlantic allies and Japan.
Government sources in London say
the British apparently are using the
Harrier deal to crack open the lucrative
Chinese market to British products and
technology, a reverse of what's hap-
pening elsewhere in Europe.

PBB not responsible for health


A University research study claims
there is no relationship between PBB in
the body and proven adverse health ef-
"We cannot document any major ab-
normalities in the people affected by
PBB," said Dr. Jeoffrey Stross of
University Hospital. Stross was in-
volved in the project and surveyed
workers for the Michigan Chemical
Company and farmers who were ex-
posed to PBB, the chemical fire retar-
dant that was accidentally mixed with
Michigan animal feed in 1973.
"THE PEOPLE who had PBB in
their bodies had a variety of complain-
ts," said Dr. Stross. "We tried to find if
there was anything we could document
about these ailments."
Many farmers had complained about
various physical and mental problems.
Yet, when tested by the researchers,
the farmers showed no identifiable

'U' study maintains

"The Michigan Chemical Company
workers had PBB levels four times
higher, but the prevalence of complain-
ts was only one fourth as high," he said.
STROSS PROPOSED that some of
the health problems experienced by
farmers were due to "stress from socio-
economic factors.
"It was the things that happened to
these people," Stross explained. "Far-
mers saw their animals killed and their
lives go down the drain so they became
Nevertheless, Stross stressed that the
true causes of the problems will
probably never be known. "There is no
way to prove that the abnormalities
were not caused by PBB since it is five
years after the event."
STROSS INSISTED thathe is not
qualified to analyze the effects of PBB
on animals. However, he said he
believes many farm animals were

destroyed because -officials "were
being very careful" in handling
animals with high concentrations of
Stross said reactions to the study's
findings have been mixed. "The far-
mers are not very happy bout it at all,"
he stated. "The public is very happy,
because anyone who was living in the
state at the time was exposed to the
Stross also claimed that the scientific
community has reacted favorably to
the, study. "There has been no criticism
of our work," he said. "The only com-
plaint has been that we haven't done
According to Stross, the next project
for research is a study of the Michigan
Chemical Company workers. Stross
said many of the workers are now
unemployed since the company has
gone out of business and many are now
complaining of health problems.

Sick'U'students to test new flu drug

symptoms evaluated. This procedure
occurs throughout the experiment
MONTO WANTS only individuals
with symptoms of influenza that have
lasted more than two days, because, he
says, therapy is likely to work sooner
just after the onset of the disease. Mon-
to said women must be excluded from
the study because it is unclear whether
the drug is safe during the childbearing
years. "We want to be absolutely safe,"
he said.
Monto said the study is limited to 200
males because paying the participants
$35 for their time is going to mean "a lot
of money otherwise."

The epidemiology professor added
the reason the students must be 18 or
older is because "they can sign a
paper," meaning the doctors don't have
to obtain parental consent for every
THE PHRASE "double-blind trial,"
which appears in the ad seeking test
volunteers, means that neither the par-
ticipant nor the investigator knows who
is on the drug or who is on the placebo,
he explained.
Monto said the experiment will con-
tinue "as long as we have flu in Ann Ar-
bor." He added Health Service has
already reported more than 12 cases of
the Russian flu. A group of dormitory
residents were stricken with the
Russian flu last year, but "we probably
won't see that again this year," Monto
Previous studies have been done on
the medication, he commented, and
those results indicate that ribavirin had
a "definite effect on the duration of the
disease." The healing process
quickened and the symptoms were less
severe, Monto explained.
Monto said four other universities -
the Universities of Washington and
Utah, Tulane University and the New

Jersey Medical College - are conduc-
ting the same experiment. The four in-
stitutions will pool their results. If each
study attracts 200 participants,' Monto
said, they will total 1,000 and this will
provide the researchers with a
reasonable sampling.

The local chamber of commerce has
hired an armored truck and assigned
chamber members to stand guard night
and day.
The 170-pound Polish delicacy is for
the kielbasa festiva. It is 24 feet long
and forms a 12-foot horsecollar oval. A
team of local sausage-makers made it
from a combination of lean pork, veal
and beef.
Last year, an equally huge sausage
was stolen after the festival ended. The
culprit was never caught.

Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25

Webster said a heathen is one "who does not believe in the
God of The Bible." This definition fits in with what God says
in the 2nd Psalm. The first recorded words of Christ after His
baptism were: "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Mat-
thew 4:4, and repeated in Luke 4:4. The purpose of this article
is to consider some words that have proceeded out of the
mouth of God concerning "JEALOUSY."
CONCERNING JEALOUSY, and some things God has
said about it. In the Second Commandment in forbidding
idolatry, and bowing down to any image or likeness of
anything in heaven, earth, or in the water under the earth.
God says: "For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting
the iniquities of the fathers upon the children unto the third
and fourth generations of them that hate me, and showing
mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my
In Exodus 34:24 God says His name is "Jealous!" "For thou
shalt worship no other God, for the Lord, WHOSE NAME IS
JEALOUS, IS A JEALOUS GODI" Search from Genesis 1 to
Revelation 22 and you will find this solemn truth confirmed
over and over again as God deals with men!
God likens His relation to His people to that of husband'
and wife. Those who have accepted Him Lord and Saviour

Are you concerned about being righteous and arrayed in
fine linen, clean and white? Are you grieved at the evil and
wickedness in the earth, and fighting the "good fight of faith"
to establish righteousness? "Righteousness exalteth a
nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Prov.14:32. "Ye
that love The Lord, hate evil." Psalm 97:10,
God says His name is "JEALOUSI" May we suggest you
read Numbers 5:11-31. Truly if men and women "believe in
the God of The Bible," there would be very little un-
faithfulness of men and women to marriage vows! Note how
sympathetic God was with the man jealous because he
suspected his wife of infidelity, and doubtless this applies to
the woman jealous of her husband for the same cause. And
note the terrible judgment by which God would put the
spotlight on the guilty!
We call attention to this horrible judgment on account of
the conviction that this horrible sin is widespread in our day
and generation, and the laws and regulations of God
Almighty concerning the home and marriage are being tram-
pied under foot. Suppose every guilty party, man and
woman, who have not repented, turned from their evil, and
received forgiveness from Christ who suffered in their place;
that such a judgment of God would fali on them tomorrow as
