Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Kidney transplants brighten future for Maritime children Thursday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-23 HALIFAX (CP) Eight- year-old David Townsend of Lockeport, N.S.. dashed across the floor of his hospital room towards Dr. John Crocker and bared his stomach as shamelessly as any belly dancer. "They're healing, both of he exclaimed, eager to show the operation scars of his kidney transplant. Until recently David and 11- year-old Katie Waters of Sus- sex. N.B., were sick children, living in a crushing hospital routine in the Izaak Walton Killam Hospital for Children The Lethbridge Junior Optimist GIRLS FASTBALL TEAM wishes to thank the following city businessmen for supporting them in their bid for the first Junior Girls Canadian Final held in Burlington, Ontario.

Through transplant oper- ations, they will both be leaving for home soon planning a brighter future and more normal lives. Before, the only way the two youngsters, both suffering from congenital kidney defects, could stay alive was through biweekly dialysis, a four-to six-hour routine. The incidence of kidney transplant in children is small and the chance of a youngster's kidneys being donated also is small. Adult kidneys cannot be used. Katie was in the hospital all last winter and this spring. Her condition was deteriorating. David had been making periodic visits to the hospital for five years. Relatives of both children had offered to give organs but none had matching tissue. While visiting Washington, Dr. Crocker had learned that donor organs from other chil- dren were available. David and Katie were readied for surgery and a team led by Dr. Allan S. MacDonald and Dr. Philip Belitsky began the operations one evening concluding successfully in the early hours next morning. Kidney disease ranks high as a cause of death in children, said Dr. Crocker, a nephrologist at the hospital. Hot rod! This hot rod from Montana was just one of the spectacles at the annual Rod Run, sponsored by the Lethbridge Street Rod Association, held recently in the city. More than 25 vintage cars participated in the tour of the city. A Iberta 's CNE winner named Sears Save150tos15 DECORATOR SHELVES Indian students dig into own past TORONTO (CP) A group of Indian students, 11 to 14 digging into their own past are "taking part in a sociological experiment" under the direction of archeologists from the Royal Ontario Museum and Trent University. The students "are doing what no one else but Indians can do in North America finding a real identity in the ground beneath their said Walter Kenyon, an archeologist at the museum. "I believe this experiment is unique on this continent, and the results are remarkable. These young students of the Alderville Indian band are showing an interest and pride in the excavations that could change the direction of their lives." The site is an ancient Indian village on East Sugar Island at the north end of Rice Lake, near Peterborough, Ont. Artifacts uncovered indicate the island has been used by various Indian peoples since 3000 BC. For the last two seasons the dozen Indians have been working on the site along with 80 other students at the Roseneath Centennial public school. The students have "uncovered a number of slate arrowheads, among a large number of other objects, that make the village important in filling gaps in early Indian Mr. Kenyon said. "But as important as what they are finding is what it is doing for them sociologically. It is giving them a new dimension of who they are and may well help produce the first Indian archeologists in he added. Mac Hall, principal of the school, said he had noted a marked change in the attitude of the students since they began work two seasons ago. "Now they want to study everything they can about their own past. And it's also making them want to find out what was happening in Europe when the village was used by various Indian people." he said Mr. Kenyon said he first investigated the site some years ago when the Alderville Indian band, a branch of the Ojibway people, considered Alberta winner of this year's Canadian National Exhibition Scholarship is Marilyn Anne McNeil of Eckville. Mervyn H.

Telephone 328-9231 A ir Cadet Keith Hunt stands beside training plane. Flying course ending The student loan situation is somewhat different this year Students going to post-secondary institutions are required to save a portion of their summer earnings to pay for the costs of their education. Generally speaking, girls are expected to save about and boys about from their summer wages. The Students Finance Board also expects parents to contribute to the cost of the education. Incidentally, the cost of attending a university away from home is about a year So. if you've saved and your parents contribute you'll still need to attend Remember, by getting a student loan, you don't have to start paying it back until after you graduate. I don't quite understand the special bursary available at the U of L, but there are bursaries valued at each for students attending the U of L. To qualify for one of these, you must live at least 15 miles from Lethbridge. I don't know of any students from Kate Andrews who have ever received one of these bursaries Rumor has it that each year many scholarships go begging because of a lack of applicants. This isn't so There haven't been that many scholarships around. To quality for those that are available you have to have real- ly high grades Each year there are many deserving -students who just don't get any Even at the U of A, which has the greatest number of scholarships, there were almost a 100 students with averages of 90 per cent who received none However, you should get an application form from the un- iversity you plan to attend The vast number of scholarships are available only to students who go to university and virtually none to students who go to college or technical school By the way, all Kate Andrews students who would like to play football for the Spartans are reminded that practices will start soon. The first game will be held in the first part ol September. For practice times call Mr Santa at 329-3548 A Lethbridge youth is among 14 cadets who will complete a flying scholarship course this week at Canadian Forces Base Penhold. Cadet K. D.
