Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTHJ1RIDGE HERAID Friday, Ftbruory IB, 1975 Y may be hungry larvae or sleeping chrysalises. Their chance to become flashing fireflies will come later, Uiey hatch inlo adult winged insects. This may be next summer or the following summer. Lightning bug-, fireflies and glow-worms are really beetles. True, they do not wear Ihc usual crisp body armor, but they have beetle-type wings and chewing mo'ilh parts. They also progress through the same four life stages. However, it usually lakes these soft-bodied beetles two years to progress through ihc-ir eggs, larva and pupa stages. The egg stage lasts a few weeks and the winged sduils may live only a few days. So most of their lives are spent as larvae or pupae. Tiiere are at least 1 .500 species of Ihis insect family Lampyridae. Most of them, including the big the female has the usual lamp in her tail. She lives on Ih3 ground and we call her a glow-warm. Most larvae develop their light organs early in life and a few- species flash sparks among Ihe fallen leaves. These too arc called glow-worms. A few species even ay eggs tiat glow softly in the damp dirt. Questions asuefl UT cMIclicn of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box i65. HuntiDglon Beaca, California 92MS.

Dr. G. L. Gale, chief of staff at Toronto Hospital, said the drug was used on 60 patients for two years in a test program under his auspices. The drug released Ui's week by the federal food and drug directorate for general use against tuberculosis on prescription by doctors "In addition to being effective, it is a relatively safe drug and have encountered very few side-effects during none of them said Dr. Gale in a statement. The GO patients at, Toronto Hospital chosen for Rif ampin leslir.g were selected because I icy had failed to find complete healing any other anti-tubercular drug, he drug mders "These patients continued lo be infectious and faced the like-ihood of spending the rest of their lives in sanatoria, or under very restrictive conditions Dr. Gale said. "As a result of the new thcr-epy, they found themselves able o Ihe as normal, free citizens in the community without the risk of infecting their families and friends." Rifampin has been under widespread clinical testing throughout the world since its discovery in 1903 by Italian researcher Gruppo Lcpctit. In Canada, extensive testing has also been conducted at tlie Willow Chest Centre in Vancouver and the "University of British Columbia's medicine department as well as at the Toronto hospital. Dr. Gale had no exact figures on the recovery rate here, bul did say patients who might have spent tlic rest of lheir lives in sanatoria now are being sent home cured, thanks lo the discovery. issues rules for converts VATICAN CITY (API Pope Paul issued new rules for adult converts to Roman Catholicism Thursday and revamped baptism rites in the church.
