Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Alberta Candidate is dropped CALGARY (CP) The Calgary Foothills Liberal Constituency Association withdrew its support for controversial candidate Chris Harder, in what Mr. Harder called a "kangaroo court. "The meeting was made up of anti-Taylor said Mr Harder "who were very upset because I changed my support from John Borger to Nick Taylor at the Provincial leadership Middle-age male smokers stroke-prone convention." He said people in attendance at the meeting "thought I was too unorthodox a candidate." A number of lawsuits he has filed against Mayor Ivor Dent of Edmonton, the Alberta Housing Corporation and a "past prominent provincial Liberal" probably have contributed to the feelings of some Liberal party members, he said President faces trail CALGARY (CP) The president of the King's Crew Motorcycle Club will stand trial May 13 on a charge of unlawfully keeping liquor for sale. The charge was related to the seizure by police April 13 of 287 cases of beer which club members claimed were under a liquor permit for a dance The club had charged police harrassment but Police Chief Brian Sawyer says this has been settled satisfactorily as a result of a meeting between himself and the motorcycle club president, Dan Stevenson. Conviction upheld EDMONTON (CP) The conviction of a former Vancouver resident for attempting to traffic in LSD was upheld Thursday by the appellate division of the Alberta Supreme Court Two of three judges who heard the case said there was enough evidence to convict Robert Andrew Godfrey Godfrey was sentenced to two years after his arrest m December, 1971. At his trial, witness said equipment in his apartment was adequate to produce LSD although none of the drug was found. Research lacks funds By WARREN E. LEARY AP Science Writer BOSTON (AP) Middle- age men who smoke more than a pack of cigarettes a day are six times more likely to have strokes than similar non- smokers regardless of any other risk factors, researchers say An 18-year study that followed men and women found heavy cigarette smoking was a significant contributor to the risk in men of a most common kind of stroke. Results of the study, part of the long-range Framingham heart study of the Boston Uni- versity Medical Centre, were presented Thursday in San Francisco at the annual meet- ing of the American Academy of Neurology. The study has followed closely the health of thousands of Framingham residents for more than 25 years and is credited with isolating many risk factors of heart disease and stroke, such as smoking and fatty diets. The study attempted to pro- file the stroke-prone person and found during the 18 years, 196 participants died of stroke Atherothrombotic Brain In- farction m which part of the brain dies because arteries supplying blood to the brain are blocked, was the most common type of stroke found m the study, accounting for 57 per cent of the total. The researchers said over- all incidence of this type of stroke was equal for men and women, but predominated in females older than 65 and in males 45 to 54. High blood pressure was the major contributor for both sexes, they said, but heavy cigarette smoking also was significant in males. "Among men, the impact of cigarette smoking is strongest and significant in ages 45 to the report said. "This ef- fect wanes with increasing age in men and is not significant in women in any age group." However, the study by Drs Philip Wolf, William Kannel and Thomas Dawber and Patricia McNamara, noted that the over-all risk in general for heavy smokers in some cases may be lower than that for nonsmokers. If the heavy smoker has nor- mal blood pressure, no diabetes and low blood cholesterol, his .stroke risk may be lower than that of a non-smoker who has high levels of the other risk fac- tors, the researchers said. "The mechanism by which smoking contributes to strokes is Dawber said m an interview. He theorized that smoking may contribute to plugging arteries with fats or it may have an abnormal effect on clotting blood in the vessels EDMONTON (CP) Mental health research was virtually halted for lack of funds, Dr W R N Blair told Premier Peter Lougheed and MLAs at the Canadian Mental Health Association's annual legislative breakfast. Dr. Blair said the province SAND grave! ASPHALT iTOLLESTRUPi SAND and GRAVEL Construction Co. Ltd., PHONE 328-8196 has greatly improved mental health services which, prior to the start of a provincial mental health study in 1968, "were among the most archaic in Canada."
