The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wodnttdw JMNMry 1tM THE LITHMlDae HERALD M New election legislation trims costs On the run A Cambodian child pulls a wagon as refugees flee from recent fighting on Highway 7, northeast of Phnom Penh. Insurgents killed eight persons and wounded 37 in a rocket attack on Phnom Penh. Chinese doctors wizards at limb reimplantation OTTAWA (CP) Back in 1958 when Chinese intellec- tuals were sent into the fac- tories and communes, a Chinese worker raised his stump of an arm and wished it were whole again so he could better promote socialist reconstruction, Dr. Chen Chung-wei told a news confer- ence here. This made Chinese doctors "ideologically ready" to de- velop expertise in limb reim- plantation, said Dr. Chen. Although he was too modest to admit it, Chinese doctors now are acknowledged among FRAME STYLES From AROUND-THE- WORLD the world's leaders in the field. Pour of them, including Dr. Chen, are on a 10-day visit to Canadian cities. In halting but precise Eng- lish, Dr. Chen said "we don't think we are the best in the world" in limb reimplan- tation. The aim of the visit to Canada and the United States is mutual learning, he said. Dr. Chen said acupuncture has been used with limited success in Chinese limb im- plantation operations. Severed limb operations were of an emergency nature, and did not provide the time to explain the acupuncture procedure for anesthesia. CONTROLS SPASMS However, he hoped acu- puncture would come into wider use in such operations. It could help in controlling the vascular spasms that often oc- cur in finger reimplantations. 45, and his col- the Number Six LAST CHANCE! According to a small group of Can- adians and Americans known as the International Arctic 'Wildlife Society, we must act now if we are to preserve our beautiful Arctic wilderness from mech- anized man and machines. Read why this Saturday IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE V Teaching Hospital in Shanghai have reattached 270 fingers on 165 patients, beginning in 1966. Their success rate was more than 50 per cent. The doctors used a techni- que called microsurgery in which they rejoin tiny blood vessels and nerves, stitching by hand under a microscope. Also in the group is Dr. Cheng Hsu-hsi who won inter- national acclaim 14 months ago when he successfully reimplanted a young woman's right foot to her left leg. The woman has been able to return to work. Canadian doctors were shown a film of a successful 17-hour operation performed on a Chinese woman to reimplant four fingers. Dr. I. J. Vogelfanger, surgi- cal research chief at Ottawa's, Civic Hospital, said the oper- ation was performed with al- most primitive equipment and without a microscope. An operation of this dura- tion was "unthinkable under our system." Limb reimplantation wasn't taught formally in Chinese medical colleges. The knowledge and experience had been acquired through prac- tice. The doctors leave Canada later this week to visit Ameri- can cities. OTTAWA (CP) The most expensive electoral race in the 1072 federal election would have been trimmed severely if election expenses legislation approved recently by the Commons had been in effect at the time. The contest in the Toronto- area constituency of York North cost victorious Liberal Barnett Danson almost while bis Conservative challenger, Steve Roman, laid out about Spending restrictions con- tained in the new legislation would have limited each man to personal expenses of plus travel costs, normally not a heavy expense in urban rid- ings such as York North. The legislation is the first serious step taken against ris- ing campaign costs since Con- federation. Under it, candidates in Can- ada's most populous riding, Toronto's York Scarborough, would be limited to spending less than the 1972 figures for neighboring York North, a smaller riding. If the legislation had been in effect in 1972, each registered party and its candidate in York Scarborough would have been limited to spending on campaigning. BASED ON VOTERS The riding had eligi- ble voters in 1972. This would have allowed personal cam- paign expenditures of while each party would have been permitted to kick in another Included in the York- Scarborough figures, based on the eligible voters in 1972, are' for mailing costs and for auditing election expense statements. Both these sums would be reimbursable to candidates garnering more than 15 per cent of the vote. In the Yukon, the country's least populous constituency with voters in 1972, the new legislation would have allowed each candidate and his registered party to shell out of -a including the reimbursable mailing and auditing ex- Useful home and office equipment Save Electric portable Reg. 16998 Save Olivetti "Lettera 33" 6Q98 Reg. b-Deluxe portable features key set tab.

Parties are not required to include contributions to in- dividual candidates in their expenses limited by the bill. This exemption might open a loophole in cases where large contributions are made by parties to candidates who use the money for travel ex- penses, not limited by the bill. DOESN'T SPECIFY Such party contributions also might be used to compen- sate a candidate for salary losses incurred during a cam- paign. The bill does not specify that party donations to a candidate must be used for campaigning. The amount each candidate is permitted to spend during campaigning is proportional to the number of eligible voters in his riding. The can- didate will receive for each of the first voters, 50 cents for each of the next 000 and 25 cents for each ad- ditional voter. Registered political parties will be given 30 cents for each eligible voter in a riding and that money will be provided by the federal treasury. Reimbursable mailing, auditing and travel costs also will be paid from the public purse for candidates meeting the 15-percent standard. For postage, candidates will be allowed, one first-class mailing to each voter, plus eight cents for each of the first voters and six cents each for any number above that figure. The reimbursable auditing allowance covers the auditing bill presented by the can- didate, up to FLQ court proceedings suspended MONTREAL (CP) Court proceedings were suspended indefinitely here against Bernard Lortie and Francis Simard, charged in the Oc- tober, 1970, kidnap-murder of Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte. Lortie, 22, serving 20 years in prison for kidnapping Laporte, was to stand trial at the January-February assizes on a charge of murder. Simard, 25, a former laborer sentenced to life for Laporte's murder, was -scheduled to be tried for kid- napping. Crown Prosecutor Rene Dery told Mr. Justice James. K. Hugessen of Court of Queen's Bench, that the charges against the two men are being suspended. He gave no reason for the decision. The announcement of Nolle Prosequi does not constitute acquittal and proceedings could, theoretically, be started again at a later date. Defence lawyer Robert Le- mieux termed the suspension of the charges "disgusting" and said the Crown is trying to prevent the defence from clearing up what he called the Laporte affair. Mr. Laporte was kidnapped during the terrorist crisis of October, 1970. He was found strangled a week later in the trunk of a car. The only cases left before the courts are those of brothers Paul and Jacques Rose, both before the Court of Appeal. Paul Rose was found guilty of both murder and kidnapp- ing and was sentenced to life imprisonment on each count. His appeal on the murder con- viction was rejected and he is awaiting a decision on an ap- peal against the kidnapping conviction. Jacques Rose was acquitted of murder and kidnapping but found guilty of complicity after the fact in She kidnap- ping. He was t'i eight years. He is currently at liberty pending his appeal of that con- viction. QUEEN HONORS MARK LONDON (AP) Queen Elizabeth has made her son- in-law, Capt. Mark Phillips, a personal aide-de-camp, Buckingham Palace an- nounced. The announcement came three weeks after the Queen awarded the same honor to Prince Charles, her son and heir.
