Will treasure her memory forever, until we meet again. remembered and sadly missed by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lomas and TORONTO (CP) Advances in. Canadian science, Including an electronic "nose" to sniff out diseases and an electronic de- vice to, regulate artificial limbs, were described Saturday at a meeting nl toe Clinical Research Society of Toronto. The electronic "nose" is ca- pable of detecting chemicals in vapors at a concentration of one part in 10 billion and can be used to find drugs, diseases even underground ore deposits, the meeting was told. Prof. J.B. French, a physi- cist at the University of To- ronto's Institute of Aerospace Studies, described the functions of the machine developed at the institute. The device, known as a Trace Atmospheric Gas Analyzer- can help doctors in early diagnosis of metabolic diseases -by measuring the chemicals given off in breath or in vapors from the skin or from urine, he said. TAG will become available in portable units within six to nine months. Its sensitivity will provide a simple and accurate diagnostic tool with its capability of detecting about 280 chemical compounds known to exist in urine vapor and 93 chemic- als in breath, he said. GOVERNMENT INTEREST The meeting was told two government departments have expressed interest in TAGA because of its potential for sniffing'out ore deposits from the air and for detection of'explosives and drugs. The University of Toronto holds the patent for TAGA and a company, SCIEX Ltd. has been formed to retain com- mercial development of the device in Canada A complete TAGA unit will sell for between and The Clinical Research Society provides an opportunity once a year for research scientists to meet with medical practitioners for an exchange of information on latest developments. G.R. Fernie, a bioengineer at a Toronto hospital, told the meeting about an electronic device that signals the position of artificial limbs so that amputees can have better control and mobility CARDS OF THANKS MACKLIN -1 would like to thank the doctors and nurses in St. Miachael's and Auxiliary hospitals for their care and kindness to me.

The Unit can be made for leu than and can be of help to elderly patients who have difficulty adjusting to a new leg and learning its exact position before applying pressure on it. BLADDERS STUDIED another presentation, two researchers studying bladder cancer, said persons who have a greater risk of developing the disease are those who smoke, drink coffee, alcohol or cola beverages. Dr. Meera G. Jain and Dr. R.W. Morgan V the University of Toronto's department of preventive medicine, described results of their studies on 233 survivors of bladder cancer. Dr. Jain, a nutritionist said her study showed smoking women who also drink coffee run a risk of bladder cancer three times greater than non- smokers and non-coffee drink- ers. In men, cola drinks and alcohol consumption figured in the study. Male smokers who drink cola appear to run a risk 2.3 times greater than men who do hot smoke or drink cola, she said. Another cancer researcher, Dr. Aaron Malkin, described a method of following the prog- ress of cancer patients by monitoring antigen, a substance found in the blood of some patients after treatment H? tttt to helpfMl In moaltoruM the coadmoa of who have had ovarian cancer, fllfk leveU of the nib- tluce were fowd before treatment, but the levels dropped to almost zero foUarinf treatment. Rising of tbe antigen in such patients can indicate a resurgence of the tumor before any other symptom are found, he added. As the meeting concluded, Dr. John Grayson, retiring president of the society, warned that Canadian science will decline unless government changes its attitude towards support for research. Dr. Grayson said government officials seem to feel Canada can do well enough by borrowing other countries' efforts, an attitude that is a menace to Canadian scholarship. Dr. Gregory Brown, head of neuroendocrinology research at the Clarke Institute of Psy- chiatry in Toronto was elected as Dr. Grayson's successor. Contract awarded A Lethbridge firm has been awarded a contract to build a youth assessment centre in Lethbridge. Kenwood Engineering Construction Ltd. will build the centre, Winston Backus, minister of public works, announced in a release.
