Wayne - The DeprecationWarnings are being raised by SciPy, not by your
code. You probably don't have a recent version of SciPy installed. The
most recent release of SciPy is 0.7.1 and works with NumPy 1.3.0. I
don't think you will see the warnings if you upgrade SciPy and NumPy
on your system.

Check your NumPy and SciPy versions at a python prompt as follows:

>>> import numpy as np
>>> print np.__version__
>>> import scipy as sp
>>> print sp.__version__

You will need to completely remove the old versions if you choose to
upgrade. You should be able to do this from "Add/Remove Programs".
