Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LITHSRIDO.I HERALD Saturday, April f, 1t74 Skin growers Medical procedure, used on burn AKRON, Ohio (AP) Two doctors have been able to take one square inch of human skin, cause it to grow to SO inches and transplant it on victims of severe burns, the Akron Beacon- Journal reported Friday. Dr. Howard Igel and Dr. Aaron Freeman, both of Akron Children's Hospital, said they have tested their procedure on rabbits and on a few human burn victims The new skin is red and can be distinguished from other skin. but it is smooth and has an appearance superior to that which might have been achieved with other methods, the doctors said. The doctors described their method this A small piece of skin is iaken from a patient, rpinced up and spread over a base of pigskin in laboratory dishes. Using a solution including amino acids, vitamins and salts, the cells are cultivated and begin to divide and multiply. The doc-tors said that in about a week small islands, a tittle smaller than dimes, form around the original pieces of skin. In two weeks, the area is usually about half-covered and in three weeks the area is amost entirely covered, they said. Between seven and 14 days after the skin growth has begun, the patches of grown skin and their pigskin base are flipped over and applied directly to the open burns The doctors said the cells continue to grow, but instead of sticking to the pigskin, they let go and attach themselves to the raw human tissue. The pigskin then withers and flakes away, eavmg a smooth layer of new skin Yukon will be llth province some day OTTAWA (CP) The Yukon will become the llth province "when its population and its revenue! reach reasonable Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien said Friday. I have no fixed he told the Commons northern affairs committee. "This is a decision a government will have to make some day." The minister gave both the Yukon and the Northwest Territories a shove in the direction of responsible government in a bill that won approval of the committee. He also got assurances from the Conservatives and the New Democrats that the Commons will give the bill report stage and third reading approval Monday without debate. This will allow the changes in both territories to go.into effect for the fall elections in the North. The bill increases the size of the Yukon territorial council to 12 from seven; the N.W.T. council will have 15 instead of 14. But in an important chaitfe, the N.W.T. council is to be fully elected. In a major concession Friday, Mr. Chretien agreed to allow the Yukon council itself to decide when its membership is to be increased or decreased in future. But he set a limit of 20 members until 1978 and said there should be a population Increase of for each additional member on council. Erik Nielsen (PC-Yukon) said this was much fairer than the original amedment which called for two new members with each increase of people in the Yukon. The original bill also left it up to Ottawa to make the decision. Although not written into the legislation, the minister is ex- panding the executive committee in the Yukon to six, made up of three appointed public servants and three elected members of the Yukon council. Each of the elected members on the committee will be in charge of territorial government departments. A similar executive is being established in the N.W.T. The Commons committee approved the bill after hearing a sometimes-bitter brief from Yukon councillors Ken MacKinnon and Don Taylor who complained that Yukoners are becoming frustrated with the domination of their affairs by public servants. They called for responsible government in which elected members of the council would make laws and administer them in local matters. It was not a plea for provincial status ai this time, they stressed. That would come later. Mr. MacKinnon said he was disturbed by recent slogans hailing the 25th anniversary of Newfoundland entering Con- federation. "We heard of Confederation being rounded out with the en- try of Newfoundland, how Newfoundlanders are the last and best he told the committee. "Confederation will never be rounded out until the northern territories become he said STEWARDESSES GET NEW JOB DEAL REMUS TELEVISION Known for our Service!

He also ruled the airline must reimburse stewardesses for each time since 1968 they were forced to share with another stewardess a hotel room during layovers while males doing the same work were .given a single room. The rulings by tLS. District Court Judge Aubrey Robinson came as a result of a decision he handed down in November. That ruling found the airline had violated the United States Equal Pay Act and the Civil Rights Act. The 15-page decision bars Northwest from weighing its stewardesses or even suggest- ing to them they are too heavy. The only exception is in cases where a stewardesses' weight "is such as to render her physically incapable of performing the duties of the job." It also declares illegal other physical requirements set by Northwest saying the airline cannot refuse to hire steward- esses because they are too tall "unless they are taller than acceptable standards for male cabin attendants" and cannot bar stewardesses from wearing glasses on duty. The suit against Northwest was brought five years ago by 44 stewardesses on behalf of all Northwest stewardesses.

A second vote, if necessary, will be held May 19. The executive's announce- ment came Friday as would- be successors to the late President Georges Pompidou bargained in secret deals for the inside track in the election struggle. By getting the party's official support, Chaban- Delmas appeared to have a strong edge over other aspirants. Premier Pierre Messmer, another prospective candidate, said he would abide by the party's decision to back Chaban-Delmas if this is ratified Sunday by all Gaullist members of the National Assembly. A party split still seemed possible with the expectancy that Finance Minister Valery Giscard d'Estaing may shortly announce his candidacy. Edgar Faure, national assembly president, has already said he would run. He may attempt to strike a deal with Giscard d'Estaing to try to offset Chaban-Delmas. With meetings and reported offers of bargains and deals, a political mood of instability akin to the pre-Gaullist postwar era in France seemed to be developing. Charles de Gaulle's domination of French political life had removed the process and Pompidou, as his successor, was able to keep the Gaullist ranks closed. With the possibility of the announcement of other candi- dacies, notably that of Giscard d'Estaing, the majority was faced with offering the nation a less cohesive image than the left wing.
