Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta immHIDSI HWALB Thuriday, Auguil 13, WO- TOAST END OF 116-YiAR-OLD TRADITION Patrons at Sorley's Old Ale House in New York City gallantly lift their steins in a toast to the end of a 116-year-old tradition barring women, with them is Elaine Everett, one of a handful of young women who en- tered the premises shortly after a New York City law was passed, prohibiting discrimin- ation on the grounds of sex.

Mr. Olson told the premier that he is certain the national oil policy, reserving a market for Canadian oil, will be main- tained, "that is, the market from tlie Ottawa Valley west will be supplied by Canadian crude." He said the government will have to work cut the most ap- propriate way of maintaining its stated policy, in view of last week's decision by the Ex- chequer Court wluch described as unconstitutional part of Hie regulations maintaining the di- vision line along the Ottawa Valley. not believe they questioned once it is in a province. I do not believe they questionde that we have the right to con- trol Intel-provincial trade." This could mean the govern- ment will have to set up its line of demarcation at a pro- vincial boundary "which would be slightly different from the Ottawa Valley Line."

Alberta Kidney Machine Taxed To Limit EDMONTON (CP) Twice a week, after his day's work is clone, a young minister checks into the University of Alberta hospital to spend the night having a treatment that enables him to go on living. He's one of 32 Albertans who depend on the hospital's dialysis machines to do a job for them that their own kid- neys can't do. "But the hospital's life-sav- ing service now is taxed to the said Dr. R. A. Ulan, chief of the dialysis unit. "Unfortunately, the unit is at capacity. The most impor- tant step now has to be the development of a home dialy- sis service." The hospital planned to begin a home dialysis pro- gram this year, similar to ones under way in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, he said. But the hospital budget "was cut and now it is unlikely that the home pro- gram can be started. "It costs about a year to provide two treatments a week for a patient in the hos- pital centre. If three treat- ments a week are needed, this rises to a year." TREATED AT HOME In most cases, treatment can be carried on at after about a two-month su- pervised training period in hospital for about one-quar- ter to one third the cost, Dr. Ulan said. Home dialysis machines can be purchased for about to Then it costs about a year for a thrice- weekly treatment. The con- tinuing expense represents the cost of maintenance, chemi- cals used by the machine in the preparation of the fluid, blood tubing, dressings and so on, Dr. Ulan said. "The cost of providing this treatment in hospital is higher because of nursing staff re- quirements and other expen- ses involved in operating the 13-bed unit. The hospital facil- ities should be reserved for new patients entering dialysis treatment, those unable to perform home dialysis, those awaiting kidney transplanta- tion in the near" future and those who have only tempo- rary failure of kidney func- tion." He said he is concerned about Hie limited number of facilities in the province. A new unit is being developed in a Calgary hospital, hut even this will not be sufficient to cope with the anticipated number of new cases this year. Dialysis is the treatment for irreversible kidney failure. NEW MOVEMENT John W. Gardner, head of the Na- tional Urban Coalition anil former secretary of health, education and welfare, is ex- ccled to resign shortly. Gard- ner plans to start a new movement which he calls a "third force" rather than a third party. Cattle For Japan KELOWNA, B.C. (CP) The Japanese government has com- ileted purchase of 40 head of hoice British Columbia Here- ord cattle for shipment to im- irove herds there. The Here- ords, valued at are to be bred with Japanese stock in in attempt to develop a strain if larger animals. COMPULSORY SCHOOL S'chool in Greenland is com- mlsory until the age of 14. Kidneys can slop function- ing as a result of malforma- tions present at birth, or infections .or other processes, not as yet completely under- stood, that destroy kidney tis- sue, Dr. Ulan said. About one out of every persons each year de- velopes kidney failure. The affliction is most common in men. When kidney function be- comes inadequate, severe ill- ness follows and treatment has !o be applied immediately or death occurs. The kidneys normally remove waste prod- ucts from the blood stream, but in kidney failure these substances remain and cause the symptoms and other con- sequences, the doctor said. During dialysis, the pa- tient's blood is circulated through tubing to the dialyzer where a membrane allows the waste, products contained in the .blood to be removed. To pel-mil this treatment to be carried on two or Ihr'ee times a week on a long-term basis, each patient has a piece of tubing called a can- Three Little Pigs Hailed As Science Milestone LONDON (CP) Three lit- tle pigs were born and the event is being hailed by the British agriculture depart- ment as both a milestone in animal science and a signifi- caii co-operative achievement between this country and Can- ada. The piglets were born re- cently to a sow at the central Veterinary laboratory oper- ated by the department in Weybridge, Surrey, 15 miles from here. Their birth is the end result of what authorities here call "the first successful transfer of fertilizied pig eggs from one continent to another." The genetic parents were in a minimal-disease herd of the Canadian department of agri- culture at Hull, Que., but the sow that gave birth to them was some miles away in Surrey. Techniques for transferring fertilized eggs from the uterus of one sow to that of another have been available for years, the British statement said. FACED PROBLEM But until recently, it was difficult to synchronize the sexual cycles of donor and re- cipient sows accurately enough to ensure that the em- bryos stood a good chance of surviving and developing nor- mally. Then came a product called methallibure, which facili- tated what the British experts call by artifi- cial insemination in pigs. By the injection of a certain variety of hormone, "the ac- tual time of ovulation of the sow" can be set out to within a matter of hours, said a statement from the British au- thorities. The British say 34 fertilized eggs collected from three sows in Canada were trans- ferred to one recipient sow in England The birth of only three piglets represented an "embryo survival rate" of nine per cent, the statement said. into a blood vessel of an arm or leg. The cannula is made of te- flon and silastic and is the means of connecting the cir- culation for the treatment. A treatment takes up to 14 hours. The patients are taught to connect themselves to the machines and to look after the shunt, which is covered by a sterile dressing between treat- ments. Most patients come in dur- ing the evening and put them- selves on treatment. They are able to sleep through it and can leave the hospital in the morning and go directly to work. "But adjusting to the knowl- edge that they are tied to a machine for two or three nights a week for the remain- der of heir lives is extremely said Gary Fox, a hospital social worker who works with the patients In the unit. "The most difficult adjust- ment is when they can't work." About two-thirds of the pa- tients have no employment problems. The young minister is one example. Of the one-thiri! with em- pi o y m e n t problems, some cannot find work because of complicaions resulting from their illness.
