From AP and UPI
Warned of the worst flooding in centuries, thousands of
residents of Phoenix, Ariz., fled their homes yesterday while
surging waters washed out roads and bridges and floated
away ears in Arizona, California and Utah.
Authorities ordered the evacuation of 11,000 people along
the normallydry river beds running through Phoenix, an
area of 1.5million people.
WITH ONE SIDE of the city virtually shut off from the
other, about 650 National Guard troops were sent to patrol
evacuated neighborhoods.
Maricopa County Civil Defense officials estimated 400
homes were damaged in communities on the west and south-
west sides of Phoenix, where the Agua Fria and Salt Rivers
join.
Only two of the 10 bridges that span the Salt River over a
20-mile stretch through Phoenix remained open. None of the
many riverbed crossings were passable.
A POLICE SUBSTATION was closed and all four inmates
of a county jail annex were evacuated from the airport area
to another jail facility on the west side of the city.

More than 150 families were evacuated in Phoenix, and
Bob Bishop of the Civil Defense office said 678 people spent
Friday night in shelters.
The National Weather Service said up to three inches of
rain was possible, on top of five inches dumped on the state
since Wednesday.
. MEANWHILE IN New York, Gov. Hugh Carey yester-
day declared "a limited state of emergency" to aid up to
6,000 spectators stranded in driving snow and numbing wind-
chill temperaturesof 10 below zero at the Winter Olympics.
Police and the Red Cross stepped in to help the spec-
tators who were in a peripheral parking area in Keene Valley
awaiting buses to get to the sites of competitions 15 miles
away. No private cars are allowed into the tiny village during
the Games.
A spokesman for the governor said he had issued "a
limited state of emergency" in the area.
"Between 4,000 and 6,000 people had to wait an hour and a
half and we had to send down the Red Cross and the Salvation
Army to make sure nobody got frostbite,'.' a State Police of-
ficer said.

toward victory in parliamentary elec-
tions tomorrow over a conservative
gavernment that took power in Canada
just nine months ago.
A Gallup poll released yesterday
gave the Liberals a wide edge over
Prime Minister Joe Clark's
Progressive Conservatives - 48 per
cent to 28 per cent among decided
voters.
"I CAN smell victory here," a
rejuvenated Trudeau told a crowd of
supporters in Quebec City last week.
But the often-brutal winter could
always upend political forecasts in the
balloting - Canada's first February
election in almost a century. Conser-
vative voters,, like U.S. Republicans,
have a reputation for making it to the

of 16 years of Liberal rule, 11 of them
with Trudeau as prime minister.
BUT WITHIN six months it was
evident that the Conservative leader,
the youngest prime minister in
Canadian history, had similarly turned
off many of his countrymen - with a

minister.
Last Dec. 13, the' Liberals and
socialist New Democrats combined to
bring down Clark's minority gover-
nment in a parliamentary vote of no-
confidence.
The 60-year-old Trudeau, who had

vatives held 136 of the 282 seats in the
now-dissolved House of Commons, to

the New Democrats and five for the
right-leaning Social Credit Party.

turers, in addition to private citizens,
submit their prototypes to the facility,
according to Reece.
Two men who claimed their English
diesel engine could get 110.6 miles per
gallon, sparked much hullabaloo at the
facility recently. After failing the
emissions standards test twice - once
with another engine - a permit was
-anted several days before Christmas,
1979, because the engine in question
passed 1979 emission standards. The
permit was valid only for the duration
of 1979, leaving one week to manufac-
ture the autos. The designers have sin-
ce returned to their drawing board.
After standing in the testing area, a
striking characteristic becomes
evident - it is hot. According to Reece,
the temperature is a constant 81
degrees.
"TOENSURE uniformity in our
tests, the temperature must not flue-
tuate," said Reece.
In fact, test standardization must be
maintained during both the pre-
conditioning and the FTP, according to
Reece, from environmental conditions
to test routes and speeds.
The FTP currently involves three
separate sequences: a test that
measures the vapors that would be
itted by a parked car on a hot day;
other that gauges exhaust emissions
and fuel economy in normal city stop-
and-go driving, and,, a third that recor-
ds gas mileage under suburban and
freeway driving conditions and speeds.
BUT CERTIFICATION is only part of
the job of the Ann Arbor facility.
Tests must be constructed and stan-
dards written or changed. Ongoing
research, continues on a day-to-day
basis.
Although housed in a garage similar
that of the certification area, resear-
chers have leeway in their testing prac-
tices, according to Reece.
Researchers at the lab make use of a
room equipped with massive air con-
ditioners on all four sides to replicate
extreme temperatures. Inside the

room, which is guarded by a freezer
door several times the size of the one at
the corner meat market, temperatures
range from a sizzling 100 degrees to a
flesh-freezing 0 degrees.
In a secluded stall of the research
area, a technician sits behind the wheel
of a green Dodge Dart, his eyes glued to
a machine located outside the door to
his immediate left. A needle on a pre-
printed sheet of paper moves as the
technician raises and lowers his foot on
the accelerator. He must follow this
pre-printed driving cycle to establish
the car's routine performance. Further
research efforts will involve malad-
justing the car to illustrate the effects
of improper car'maintenance and com-
paring the former car performance to
the latter.
The slightly-balding Reece sees the
work of the emissions lab as "one part
in the overall picture," of environmen-
tal pollution control.
"Consider all of the automobiles
polluting the air and factories dumping
sludge into our water sources and a
mere'4000 EPA employees entrusted
with pollution'control. There have been
a lot of accomplishments. . . but we
still have a long way to go."

who is fertile; to her infertile sister.
Cohen attempted a fallopian tube
transplant several years ago in Cape
Town, South Africa, but was
unsuccessful.
Some women with fertility problems,
although they have no difficulty
conceiving, suffer repeated
miscarriages. Beer has found that in
some instances the problem may be
that the woman and her husband are
too'similar genetically. .
The fetal-maternal relationship can
be viewed as nature's most successful
transplant, explained Beer. Although
the fetus is genetically foreign to the
mother (half its genes come from the
father) the mother's baby usually
accepts the fetus.
UNLIKE THE NORMAL organ graft-
host relationship, where the greater the
genetic difference, the more likely an
organ will be rejected, the opposite is
true in relationship of the fetus and
mother. Genetic incompatibility
between the mother and fetus actually
enhances the relationship.
According to Beer, the fetus' foreign
tissue antigens (contributed by the

father) stimulate an immune response
in the mother. This immune response
protects both mother and baby.
"The greater the genetic differences,
the greater the immune response," said
Beer. "The babies grow better and the
placentas are bigger."
When a couple is too similar
genetically, the presence of the fetus in
the mother's uterus does not stimulate.
the protective immune response and
the woman has a miscarraige. Beer has
diagnosed this problem for two local
women who have both been
successfully artificially inseminated
with sperm from donors who were
genetically different from the women.
O n March 14 Beer and a group of
University physicians will be traveling
to Flint to hold a free day-long clinic for
women with fertility problems. The
women will be referred to Flint doctors
if their problems can be treated locally,
or may referred to the University for
evaluation.
Beer said he hopes to eventually hold
clinics in other Michigan cities such as
Grand Rapids and Saginaw, Midland,
and Bay City.
