(Continued from Page 1)
THE RESEARCH was aided
at times by the scholarship of
other scientists working on re-
lated problems. It indicates that
chlorfluoromethanes, the scien-
tific name for freon, are being'
released in a gaseous state and
are rising through the atmos-
phere where they will eventual-
ly react with the ozone in the
stratosphere and destroy it.
Freon accounts for about 85
per cent of the weight of all
common household sprays such
as paint, deodorant and air
freshener.
Cicerone says the freon could
wipe out as much as 10 per cent
of the ozone located in the
stratosphere, a high section of
the atmosphere 16 to 19 miles
above the surface of the earth.
But, he says, the effect of the
ultraviolet ray increase will be
disproportionately larger, de-
pending upon the wavelength of
the ultraviolet rays, which vary.
AN INCREASE in the amount
of ultraviolet radiation reaching
our planet's surface could have
a number of disastrous results
according to Cicerone.
One problem Cicerone -cites
is that the incidence of skin
cancer will increase since the
correlation' between skin can-
cer and ultraviolet radiation is
well known.
Excessive ultraviolet radia-
tion can also be fatal to photo-
sensitive plants and animals,

such as
oceans.

Chuck Judge, associate direc-
tor of LSA counseling, argues
that "I suppose the potential;
for abuse exists, even though'
such a chance is slim, but in
actual practice, I don't feel the
records have been abused in
the past."
OPPONENTS of the measure
have argued that much of the-
-information in the files was re-
corded in confidence without the
knowledge that the students
would later see them and that
opening the files would there-
fore violate counselors' rights
and inhibit honest remarks in
the future.
However, Daane says the new
law is written in such a way
that there are virtually "no
grounds" to make such a chal-
lenge hold up in court-so that
all confidential material must
be made available to the stu-
dents.
Because of this hesitation to
release confidential material,
University officials are also
considering purging files of all
such information before Nov.
20, according to Ed Douahertv,
assitstant to the Vice President
for Academic Affairs. But he
adds that such a move annears
hiahlv unlikely.
Although students' files are
now kant secret by all counsel-.
in- offices, the University -
most notably the literary (LSA)
college-has been moving in the'
direction of more open access
to ttidPnt records.
RHODES SAYS "there is a
growing trend and concern for
n,"hlic onenness and we at the
University shoid therefore ex-
nect to share in that."

-The former President does
not talk about his physical
problems with his family mem-
bers, who first learned of the
phlebitis last summer from
Nixon's doctors;
-Nixon has made no plans or
decisions about returning to the
public arena; and
-He is reconsidering his an-
nouncement of last Dee. 10 that
he would eventually give the
San Clemente estate to the
American people.
This is part of his current
preoccupation with getting his
personal affairs in order.
REFERRING TO the pardon,
this family member said,
"You'd think he would be very
happy with recent events, but
"emotionally, he's still way
down, very depressed. Ie is in
a deep depression."
Nixon's motional depression
was said to be aggravating his
physical problems and vice
versa.
"It's not that he's not sharp.
He grasps things as quickly as
ever. But the mental letdown
plays on the physical problems.
Each plays on the other and
that cycle makes both worse,"
the family member said.
