Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The Herald- Family Local driver examiner has never been scared By JIM LOZERON Herald Staff Writer You may meet him only once in a lifetime. He sits at the passenger side of the car and pulls out his clipboard. You sit maybe wondering if you have made the grade. And prepare yourself for the verdict from the driver ex- aminer.

Mr. Healy says he has never been frightened while taking applicants out. The speed an applicant can drive during the test 30 m.p.h. is in an ex- aminer's favor. However Mr. Healy recalls one in which he almost lost his composure. The fellow was anything but a chauffeur. During the test the examiner directed the driver back to the office after an exhibition of wobbling all over the road. came back onto 5th Street and I asked for another right hand turn.

A freight car is useless if it isn't going somewhere. And to get it it takes people. People like locomotive engineer Al Fuller. Al typifies the new thinking at CP Rail. Thinking that has given us an almost improve- ment in on-time perfor- mance on certain key trains. We improved this service through better planning and utilization of equipment. We added new pieces of rolling stock last And spent on ties. This kind of commitment is part of the spirit at CP Rail. We believe good freight service is really a question of good people. Whether they're fore- casting buying new or ensuring another on-time arrival. At CP Rail we believe freight is people- like Al Fuller. And we want to keep the spirit that has made us the world's largest investor- owned transportation system. We're committed.

Rail I I I Stick to well-lighted roads in familiar neighborhoods even if it means going out of your way. Avoid being caught in a situation where you have to get out and ask for directions. Lock all car doors and keep the windows shut. You're particularly vulnerable when getting out of or into your so park on a well-lighted street or in a parking lot that has an atten- dant. Before you get into the car. look inside to make sure there's nobody hiding on the backseat floor. Before you start tell somebody at your destination what route you plan to follow and when you expect to arrive. If you don't show they can start looking for you. If you do a lot of driving after you might consider taking a dog along for protec- tion. If your car breaks stay inside and wait for a policeman If a stranger com- es stay inside and ask him to send help from the nearest service station. If a car pulls across the road and blocks your blow your horn for help but stay in the locked car. If you're keep blowing the horn and drive to the nearest police or fire station worry about being late to a party or a Mr. Classen ignore people who make fun of you for being 'over-cautious'. A woman driving along at night should think of herself first.

LABKL PKSTICIDES Pesticides should never be stored in pop canning or other unmarked con- tainers and should be kept in a Technique allows arterial close-up By HAROLD M. SCHMECK JR. New York Times Service WASHINGTON The technology that made possible man's first close-up map of Mars has been coupled with the old-fashioned x-ray to give doctors a new and potentially important view of hardening of the arteries. The scientists who developed the new technique for viewing human blood vessels expect it to become a key tool for studying that common type of hardening of the arteries which ranks as the nation's No. 1 health problem. A substantial measure of their enthusiasm is shared by officers of the National Heart and Lung Institute which has supported research leading to the new technique. The method was developed through collaboration between the jet propulsion laboratory of the California Institute of Technology and the Universi- ty of Southern California Medical School. It involves basically the same computer- aided technology for ex- tracting information from im- ages that scientists of national aeronautics and space ad- ministration used to separate the real picture from the murk of extraneous radio noise in the signals they received via spacecraft from the vicinity of Mars. In the case of heart research the technology is used to extract a meaningful picture of the irregularities within arteries from an or- dinary arteriogram an x- ray visualization of an artery The purpose is to watch the progression or the regression of atherosclerosis in the atherosclerosis in the arteries over a period of time. Atherosclerosis involves the formation of fatty plaques in the interior lining of arteries. As these plaques become progressively enlarged they restrict the flow of blood and ultimately may block a blood vessel This is the process believed to be respon- sible for most heart attacks and many strokes. It is therefore at the root of the disease group that accounts for most American deaths. The new technique produces x-ray pictures on which the size and shape of irregularities representing atherosclerotic plaques can be seen clearly within human arteries The ability to see the size and extend of plaques within arteries offers the prospect of taking pictures repeatedly at yearly intervals to see whether plaques are growing or retreating under the influence of exercise or drug treatment. This kind of sequential study of atherosclerosis in living patients could have profound effect on knowledge of the dis- ease and efforts to cope with it. Conventional x-ray studies of the arteries will show total blockage or serious narrowing of an but will not or- dinarily give the kind of detail available through the new method.
