(AP) Despite evidence that it doesn't help, dozens of cancer patients in. the last stages of the disease come to a clinic in this border town every day, hoping to be cured. The lure is a drug most American medical authorities have been condemning as worthless for more than 20 years. The drug is Laetrile, derived from apricot kernels. In recent weeks, the National Cancer Institute in the United States subjected Laetrile to another in a long series of tests. Once again, Laetrile failed to exhibit any anti-cancer activity. The institute does not plan any further experiments. Another series of tests, however, continues at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre in New York. Final results are expected within 'several weeks. As many as persons may have taken Laetrile since the early 1950s and its supporters say its use is growing rapidly. The drug is just one of a number of unorthodox remedies for various ailments, very often cancer, that are banned in the U.S. because most scientists say they are quack medicines. A spokesman for the department of health in Ottawa said Laetrile has never been accepted or authorized in Canada. There is "no scientific indication" that the drug is a cure for cancer, said the spokesman. INVOLVES CANADIAN The co-ordinator of Laetrile manufacture and research is Andrew R. L. McNaughton, 57, son of the renowned Canadian armed forces commander in the Second World War. He travels constantly around the United States and in foreign countries where Laetrile is produced Mexico, Italy, West Germany, Monaco and Yugoslavia. Despite the ban, Laetrile's use has steadily increased. The Food and Drug Administration, the American Medical Association and American Cancer Society have all fought Laetrile over the last two decades. Their main contention is that by taking Laetrile instead of conventional proven treatments, cancer patients are shoretening lives that might have been prolonged. For the last 10 years the focus of the dispute has been Dr. Ernesto Contreras' clinic here, which has treated more than patients and supplied Laetrile for many others. Bridge Ladies Wed.

'Dull sex okay for weak hearts9 LONDON (Renter) Sex is good for a man recovering from a heart attack, but only if it's with his wife, a United States specialist says. Dr. Nathaniel Wagner, a researcher from Washington University, said recovering cardiac patients could die from excitement with a mistress. Wagner wrote in the British Journal of Sexual Medicine that once a male patient had recovered enough to take regular, gentle exercise he should be encouraged to resume a normal sex life. Laetrile is a trade name for amygdalin, a common substance that is found in kinds of food. LACKS BACKUP REPORTS A middle-aged man and his daughter say that they have come from Minnesota to get Laetrile treatment for the mother who was being treated for cancer at the Mayo clinic. Laetrile advocates "cannot produce even one medically substantiated case which shows any beneficial effects not said Dr. Ralph Weilerstein in a recent American Cancer Society article called Questions and Answers on Quackery. Contreras, a medical doctor, who did postgraduate study at Harvard Medical School, does not speak of Laetrile as a cure. "We see it as a very beneficial chemotherapeutic he said. "After 10 years of experience we are using- it with more confidence." Laetrile can help control cancer in some patients and prolong the lives of others in which the disease has spread too far, said Contreras. But he added most of his patients have already tried conventional treatments and are so ill when he sees them that nothing can save their lives. HARD TO EVALUATE Asked to provide statistics showing the effect of Laetrile on his patients, Contreras responded that it is hard to evaluate cancer treatments solely from clinical records, because if a patient later dies, no one can say how long he would have lived without it. "I would say that 60 per cent of my patients and remember, they are usually in very advanced stages when they come here are improved or have some relief from their he said. "Of that 60 per cent, about 30 per cent have an arrest or remission of their disease." Every day 40 to 60 patients come to Contreras' clinic. Ten years ago Contreras treated a former San Diego schoolteacher for breast cancer, using Laetrile. Contreras said she had been given three months to live but survived for five years on Laetrile therapy before dying of her disease. This was the beginning of what the FDA called an "underground railway" that brought cancer patients to Tijuana for Laetrile treatment. In 1971 several persons were arrested and convicted of violating the California's cancer drug laws. This was announced as "the start of a crackdown on the whole network of Laetriie operations." Contreras, being in Mexico, was immune from prosecution. Authorities noted he was and still is charging for the first office visit and for subsequent visits, and about for an injection of Laetrile. Tablets of Laetrile go for about each in the underground market, authorities say. There are also a number of doctors in such countries as West Germany, Mexico, and the Philippines who have administered Laetrile to hundreds or perhaps thousands of patients. OTTAWA The Cana- dian transport commission to- day was to examine how Bell Canada provided company in- formation to groups and individuals opposing its bid for new telephone rate increases. The commission also was to examine the report of Montreal financial analyst James Pitblado that supported the Bell position. Commissioners have been studying since Wednesday a list of questions submitted to Bell by representatives of the Ontario and Quebec governments. Quebec lawyer Raynald Langlois said Bell: has answered 50 of 75 questions he submitted.
