(CP Wirepholo) P By CAROL PA5COE MONTREAL (CP) Sleep, long accepted as an unremarkable period of regeneration for Ihe body, late- ly lias become an area of special interest as medical researchers try to unmask its relationship to illness. Researchers at the first Canadian International Sleep Symposium held today at McGill University re- ported a close connection between various stages of sleep and specific medical situations such as early morning births, heart attacks and indigestion. The first signs ol coronaries, and ulcers, and bronchial asthma frequently occur at nighl. Through th3 use of (he electroencephalogram, in- vestigators have found sleep occurs in two main stages or rapid eye movement (REM) and quiet or non-rapid eye movement Dreams take place during DEM stages and, contrary to popular opinion, may last as long as it would lake the sleeper to carry out the equivalent action in a state of wakeful- ness. Dr. Anthony Kales, chairman of the psychiatry de- partment at Pennsylvania State University, said seven years of sleep research indicate it is common for the first signs of a catastrophic illness to appear during sleep. For example, ho said, a frequent occurrence among patients with coronary artery disease is nocturnal an- gina. Of 39 cases ol night pain, 32 were associated with nEM sleep, Heart rate up Sensors showed that shortly after the patient en- tered REM sleep, the heart rate increased, electro- cardiogram abnormalities appeared and a few min- utes laier the patient, awoke 1o report chest pain. Patients with duodenal ulcers also are often awakened with pain that may be relieved by milk or antacids. Dr. Kales said il has been established that ulcer patients secrete from three to 20 times as much gastric acid during the night as normal patients. The increased secretion usually occurs during RKM sleep, Of all sleep disturbances, however, insomnia is .most prevalent. Psychological testing of 20 insomniacs, Dr. Kales reported, showed an extraordinarily high percentage of pathological disturbances for a group not defined as psychiatric patients, Mosl noticeable were patterns of depression, oiipessive-eornpiilsivc: features and schizo- phrenic 1 rends.

(CP Wirephoto) antees loans rowers By GREG McINTYRE Herald Slatf Writer EDMONTON The provin- cial government will guarantee loans made by Alberta's ISO po- tato growers, agriculture Minis- ter Hugh Horner announced Thursday in the legislature. However, financial backing will only be offered to potato farmers who can show they have markets for their product, "We don't want to sec an ex- pansion of the potato industry until there is an expansion of the market for potatoes." tho minister said outside the house. Dr. Horner said the loan gua- rantee program is aimed "to save the nucleus of the potato industry." The government win gnaran- (ee a loan and one hall of the interest on tliat loan up to S100.000 for capital and for operating costs. JIO1V IT An applicant must supply a bank or other lending insti- tution with an affidavit stating that he has a potato operation and a market. The bank will submit a copy of Ihese documents to the min- ister of agriculture and the pro- vincial treasurer. If the loan is okayed, the bank will receive a statement from the government that the loan is guaranteed. The potato loan guarantee will expire Dec. 31, 1974. Dr. Horner said the program is to see potato growers through "tough times this year." Alberta's potato acreage dropped slightly in 1971. Mar- kets were weak and prices generally low-. The minister said potato farming is "capital intensive" requiring a large outlay of mon- ey for equipment. Modem equipment is vital to produce high quality table potatoes. The potato loan guarantee program was suggested by pro- ducers associations, he said. Pointing to the need for more markets for potatoes and pota- to products, lie said a powdered potato plant al Taber has closed and another at Vauxhal! is overstocked with dehydrated potatoes, Tragedy strikes climbing KATMANDU, Nepal CAP) Fifteen Asian climbers have been killed in the worst tragedy in Ihe history of Himalayan ex- ploration.
