Smoking can hurt fetus


BOSTON(Al)-Women who smoke
during regnancy are nearly twice as
liable as nonsmokers to lose their
babies through spontaneous abortion, a
study says.
The researchers recommended that
women give up smoking to increase
their chances of having full pregnan-
cies with normal childbirth.
This study, conducted at New York's
Columbia University, adds another
argument to the growing case against
smoking during pregnancy.
A SPONTANEOUS abortion-as op-
posed to one that is induced ar-

tificially-is defined as one in which a
woman naturally loses a fetus less than
about 20 weeks old. The researchers did
not distinguish between a spontaneous
abortion and a miscarriage, which is
generally defined as loss of the embryo
or fetus during the first three months.
The researchers were not sure why
women who smoke have more spon-
taneous abortions, but they said there
are two main theories. One is that
smoking women sat less than non-
smokers. The other is that fetuses of
smoking women do not get enough

A SEASON IN HELL. "I summoned the executioners so as to die gnawing the butts of their guns. I
summoned the scrouges so as to bury myself in sand and blood."-Rimbaud. One of the few films that

Fin -icky
Last week dorm residents were complaining about the elimination
of paper towels in bathrooms. While that wet controversy drips on,
dorm dwellers have their hooks into another issue-tuna fish. They're
asking why yellow fin tuna is being served in dorm cafeterias even
though residents passed a referendum last spring to serve only the
higher quality albacore this year. But, there's an explanation. The
University ordered a large supply of yellow fin before the referendum
was voted upon. It won't be until mid-November when the yellow fins
run out and residents will get albacore. Once this fishy issue is
resolved, students can turn their full attention back to paper towels.

Canary gold
When her pet-bird died last spring, an elderly Salt Lake City woman
resourcefully sprinkled some leftover birdseed in her garden. But
when the little green sprouts came up they didn't look like anything
she'd ever seen in Utah before. However, Salt Lake City cops had little
trouble recognizing it. They wasted no time in harvesting a neat crop
of cannabis. Any one for birdseed brownies?
On the outside,..,.
The thermometer is finally finding its way up to a respectable level.
Today the high will hit 550 before dipping down to 40° when night falls.
Cloudy skies should clear up during the day while light and variable
winds gently buffet you. Our weather forecasters say "it's leaning
toward being nice" for the weekend.
