Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 5, 1975 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 31 Skin-graft technique may relieve discomfort MONTREAL (CP) The post-operative period can be extremely uncomfortable for the skin-graft patient. He may spend weeks in a hospital bed with his body con- torted, for example, with a knee attached to his cheek while the graft takes hold and a new blood supply system es- tablishes itself. A new technique called free transfer of skin flaps, being developed by Montreal General Hospital researchers Dr. Rollin Daniel and Dr. Bruce Williams, may end lengthy bouts of imposed acrobatics for skin-graft patients. Peering through a powerful microscope the surgeons join veins, arteries and nerves. The operation may take as long as seven hours. "It's a field of plastic sur- gery which offers real benefits to the said Dr. Williams. The team has performed six such operations on laboratory animals since Juiy and it's just a matter of time before a suitable human patient is found, said the researchers. Dr. Williams described it as "a developing with applications to many parts of the body. An adaptation of the tech- nique to muscle transplants is a probable next step. 1 rf THE BETTER HALF By Barnes_ "If I'm late getting home don't worry I may be talked into flying to Hollywood for a screen test." Enough to frost your whiskers Looking suitably inscrutable, this calico cat, resident of a farm 12 miles north east of Lethbridge, has found a place .in the sun for an afternoon nap. The current cold snap has been more than enough to frost a cat's whiskers. How can a feline cat-nap comfort- ably when surrounded by all that cold white stuff?

ST S LETHBRIDGE Phone 327-3609 Physician wants sugar labelled as 'toxic9 TORONTO (CP) Dr. John Yudkin, founder of London University's chair of nutrition, wants sugar labell- ed as toxic. In his book Sweet and Dan- gerous, the biochemist and physician says people should be warned of the studies that tie the increased use of sugar to the steady rise of coronary disease and that the sugar- rich diets of today's children leave them potential subjects for a wide range of diseases. Dr. R. E. Haist, director of physiology of the University of Toronto, said a study con- ducted 30 years ago by Dr. C. C. Lucas and Dr. Charles Best showed that sugar and alcohol had the same effect in produc- ing fatty livers in rats. Dr. Yudkin says in the book few parents are aware that sugar is added to canned soups, infants' foods and peanut butter. The artificial sweetener, cy- clamate, he says, is safe and should not have been banned by the United States Food and Drug Administration and Can- ada's Food and Drug Directo- rate low is... helping the kids build a. snowman. US fa'. Olf.-Al The basis for the ban was a study indicating the sweetener developed cancerous tumors in the bladders of rats. Grant Cornell, president of Abbott Laboratories Ltd. Can- ada, said in an interview "our data has shown thai cyclamates are harmless" and that over the last four years "scientists have not been able to duplicate the ex- periment which gave rats cancer." He said that although cycla- mate was banned by the FDD for use in prepared food and drinks, "there's no trouble getting it from the druggist and many doctors continue to support cyclamate." Dr. Vladimir Rasper of the University of Guelph's depart- ment of food, said neither fudge nor toffee can be made with artificial sweeteners but that industry-financed research is being conducted to find other ways of making the confection. Sexual revolution cooling NEW YORK (AP) The sexual revolution is cooling down as some of the avant- garde find that sexual variety without affection leads to "frustration, tension and researchers said last week. "The movement of American society toward reducing sex to animal-like conduct between people is about to said Prof. Amitai Etzioni, a Columbia University sociologist. He said the pendulum is swinging back "to a new synthesis, a new middle." Etzioni spoke to a news con- ference about a session on hu- man sexuality at the 141st an- nual meeting of the American Association for the Advance- ment of Science. He said that people now are "seeing ways to draw a line between sexual freedom and sexual fantasy." "It's been discovered in varying degrees that all this sexual spice leads to less Etzioni said. "There is now more emphasis 'on things other than sexual acrobatics." The Columbia sociologist said this view was based in part on interviews with 215 single persons in Greenwich Village in New York and 50 couples at Rutgers University who had lived together and decided to gel married. fill IN THE MALL MINI ICE CAPADES Featuring the finest Amateur Figure Skaters in Southern Alberta SHOWS 1 THURSDAY FRIDAY p.m. SATURDAY AT 2 p.m. x 4----' AN EXCITING WINTER CARNIVAL IN THE WARMTH OF OUR MALL _ SEE FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT "Slick" Artificial Skating Surface Inflatable Children's Recreational Devices Universal Gym New Displays New Athletic Testing Equipment Bring your own or UM tupplitd skate in Mall on our Artificial "Slick."
