Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August LETHBRIDGE HERALD-3 Dateline Alberta Anti-cancer agents found EDMONTON (CP) Studies at the Dr. W. W. Cross Cancer Institute have found anti-cancer agents in blood samples from patients who do not have the disease, a member of the research staff said Monday. Dr. T. A. McPherson said "it had been thought you had to have the specific type of cancer to generate the resistance, but our studies demonstrate that there is im- mune resistance in patients with cancer and even in nor- mal patients." He said previous research indicated lymphocytes and blood serum factors capable of combatting various types of cancer were produced only in patients suffering that par- ticular cancer. Dr. McPherson has been supervising work financed by the Edmonton Police Associa- tion Welfare and Charity Trust. Poison death rate rises EDMONTON (CP) The number of poisonings in Alberta in 1973 declined although the death rate con- tinued to rise, the provincial government said Monday. A report said 161 deaths were attributed to poisoning during 1973 from reported cases. Suicide was responsible for the continuing increase in deaths with 159 in 1972 and 145 in 1971. Injured soldier on mend EDMONTON (CP) Master (WO) Dan Segin, 42, one of three Canadian soldiers injured last Thursday in Cyprus, is "improving steadily" a Canadian Forces spokesman said here Monday. The veteran of 24 years in the force was still on the seriously injured list with a head wound suffered when the Turkish army shelled a United Nations observation post. He and the two other in- jured Canadians were transferred to a military hospital. Condition of the other Canadians was not available here. Alderman's son accused EDMONTON (CP) A land developer Monday told a judicial inquiry he believes the son of Aid. Bill McLean was serious in asking for the concessions to all restaurants at a shopping centre develop- ment in return for his father's vote. Developer Raphael Ghermezian had said previously that the son. Doug McLean, had asked for the concession in return for a favorable vote by Aid. McLean on the rezoning which would make the development possible. Asked if he had Considered telephining Aid. McLean about his son's statements, Mr. Ghermezian said he had not because "if I had called his father, it meant J was ready to negotiate." Mr. Ghermezian previously testified that Aid. McLean was the person who first suggested that the shopping centre be developed. The inquiry into allegations of wrongdoing at city hall has already heard charges and countercharges by Mr. Ghermexian and Aid. Alex Fallow. Mr. Ghermezian has said Aid. Fallow demanded cash from him.
