Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 10, 1974 THE LETHBR'DGE HERALD 21 New diabetes treatment in prospect New York Times Service SAN FRANCISCO A con- siderably more effective treatment than any now available seems to be in prospect for diabetes of the type that manifests itself ear- ly in life. But it is not yet suitable for general use. It has not gone through the extensive clinical tests required to es- tablish its safety and effec- tiveness. And the ideal molecular structure for the substance involved has not yet been found. Nevertheless, those work- ing in the field consider the prospects excellent that the treatment will be available in a few years. The path that led to the development began in 1972 with the discovery of a new hormone at the Salk Institute in La Jolla, Calif., followed by tl.e observation in animal ex- periments at the University of Washington in Seattle that the hormone reduces sugar levels in the blood of baboons. Insulin is a hormone nor- mally released by certain cells in the pancreas to control excessive levels of sugar in the blood. In diabetics these cells do not perform their role, and so ad- ministration of insulin is stan- dard treatment. The manner in which the new hormone, called somatostatin, reduces blood sugar levels has been explored at the University of California Medical Center here. The research has confirmed an earlier proposal that an ex- cess of another hormone glucagon is responsible for maintaining high blood-sugar levels in diabetics, even when they are taking insulin. The newly found hormone corrects this by inhibiting the release of glucagon The big ten of the adoption world Mr. and Mrs. Robert G.

Spokesmen for the Roman Catholic Church here refer to a "flowering" of religious vocations among women for such strict monastic orders as the Trappists and Carmelites a situation considered all the more striking because of the general decline in religious vocations in Western Europe. In the last decade, for instance, a Trappist Abbey at Vitorchiano, a village in central Italy, expanded enough to open two new convents in Ita- ly and Argentina and recently sent 10 nuns to the United States to found a cloister. The change has been noticed elsewhere, too. In France, fewer women are entering religious in- stitutions, but those entering cloisters are reported to be on the increase. There is also a marked change in the type of women making such a radical choice as electing an essentially medieval form of religious life. In the past in Europe, most girls entering cloisters were very young and of peasant stock. Few are literate. As recently as 1961, only 43 per cent of Italy's Roman Catholic nuns, including cloistered nuns, had completed elementary school. For those girls, the austere physical conditions they found in monasteries the nearly vegetarian diet, the hard labor, the lack of heating, the rarity of contacts with the outside world did not differ drastically from what many had had at home. Today, however, the young women entering Italian cloisters are older, better educated and city-bred. Some are highly educated. One who speaks eight languages, when asked why she secuded herself in a cloister, replied: "because eight languages were not enough Why would a young woman with an office job in Milan or Rome turn her back so utterly on the world? Padre Isidoro Giannoni, head of the Vatican office that deals with women's monasteries, said simply "when the Lord's vineyards need cultivating, he calls for workers to tend the vines." Don Antonello Ravazzi. director of the research office of the Italian Union of Mothers Superior (or Unione Superior! Maggion spoke of the "contemporary search for an ab- solute, authentic religious experience, and the need for a radical choice." "The revival of young women's interest in the monastic life may be a counterpart to the movement among lay youth m Europe, as well as America, to form agricultural com- Don Antonello said Some of the women are drawn by love of liturgy, a chance personal en- counter during a spiritual retreat near a cloister, or by mystical writers such as St John of the Cross "Aside from the obvious prerequisite of religious fervor, many are attracted by the simplicity and silence of the con- vent in other words, by its very contrast to the life said Don Antonello. Some orders do not permit cloistered nuns to visit dying relatives Four times a year they may speak ti relatives through a grating. While oc- casionally the grating has been remov- ed along with the thick black drape that traditionally hung over it, cloistering is still just that, seclusion, silent prayer and contemplation. letter you printed from the secretary who resented doing her boss' phony expense ac- counts may have helped make businessmen more honest. (She said she hated being an accomplice to his chiseling and felt guilty because she knew darned well he was charging personal expenses to the business.) By printing that letter, Ann, you made thousands of men 'aware that their secretaries are on to them. These days when people are becoming more concerned with honesty and truthfulness (probably because there has been such an absence of these virtues at every such a letter can do a lot of good. Thank you for printing it. Harder To Measure Up. Dear Trying: If I shook up a few chiselers around the country, I'm glad. Those birds have been a flagrant and fearless lot for too long. Dear Ann Landers: Please accept one more letter about the 15 year old lad who ob- jected to taking gym showers with other boys. I agreed with you when you said there must be something wrong with the boy. A subsequent letter said the advice did NOT apply to girls. Why not? I have raised my daughters not to be ashamed of their bodies. Isn't something also wrong with a 15 year old girl who balks at taking a shower in front of other girls? Please hurry your answer. I am Mother Dear U.M.: In our culture girls are reared fo be more modest about their bodies. (For example, in many clubs males swim in the nude. Not so with women's clubs) Another factor is that the bodily changes in young girls are much more noticeable than in young boys. This would make a difference to the girl who is over (or under) developed. where Christmas ideas begin Ho hday pant dressing I imc yi in busy to fuss' You w ml good loot- dsy In worn ,md lulhos We v< fjnl th( in' pior( p.lilt smls good looks in double-knit polyester iretale Srn.i'l qiui'l p.rltet ned ki t pnlyest1 -r knit Untie.leek vith b.ick pull on wide leq p.inls M.irhine-w.tsh-.ind dry a In copjji i in n.ivy 17HOOO b.
