Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 9, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBHIDGE HERALD Thunday, January 9, 197S -The Herald- Family Researchers find new uses for gout drug TORONTO (CP) Dr. Roy Ellis of Montreal says an- turan, a drug used for 20 years to treat, gout, has been found effective in warding off strokes and preventing second heart attacks. Research into the new use of the drug has been con- ducted in Canada for more than 10 years, he said this week in an interview. The WINNERS Christmas Draw Sponsored by L.A. to St. Peler SI.

MIHALIK Lethbridge medical research council now is funding a Trans- Canada study to confirm the research findings. Dr. Ellis said blood par- ticles, called platelets, play a large role in stopping the bleeding in injured blood vessels. But, in a patient with hardening of the arteries, a condition that can lead to heart attacks or strokes, the platelets can build into clumps on the walls of the blood vessels. Those clumps may become large enough to block the artery or chunks may break, away from the clump and plug tiny blood vessels. Dr. Ellis said observations made in 1965 by Dr. Hugh Smythe and Dr. Metro Ogryzlo of Toronto and Dr. Fraser Mustard of Hamilton showed that gout patients' platelets didn't last as long as those in normal persons. Treatment with anturan restored the platelets to nor- mal.

Reddy tops the 1974 list of Ten Worst-Dressed Women, the list's creator, designer Earl Blackwell, said this week. "She simply isn't Blackwell said of the pop singer, a' leading women's-lib figure who recently became a United States citizen. But he reserved the all-time "worst" for actress Elizabeth Taylor. He told reporters Miss Taylor has figured most prominently in the list in the 15 years it has been compiled by him. "There's too many yards of flesh for too few inches of fabric. She could be the most gorgeous woman in the world. "There's no point in trying to make yourself smaller by pull- ing a zipper tighter, ff you're large, you're large. Large women can look wonderful." For the first time in years, the British Royal Family did not figure on the list. "1 just got bored with Blackwell said "The whole family is just hopeless." Others on his list were Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia; stripper Fanne Foxe, who figured in the recent scandal in-' volving Congressman Wilbur Mills; New York Congresswoman Bella Abzug; television star Cher Bono; Latin singer Charo; the black singing group the Pointer Sisters; film actress Raquel Welch; television star Karen Valentine; and New York fashion designer Sonia Rykiel.

D. Bayda of Saskatchewan Court of Queen's Bench said this week. Mr. Justice Bayda, a member of the Law-Reform Commission of Saskatchewan, told the University of Saskatchewan's annual Farm and Home Week meeting that the adversary which one party must win and the other well in some cases but should not in- volving custody of children. He said the whole area of rights of children in divorce cases should be examined be- cause while each parent might be represented by lawyers there is no one to speak for the children. Mr. Justice Bayda said it was fortunate that in many cases parents in a divorce situation recognize they should not use their children as but there are substantial numbers of cases in which separating parents "cannot decide in a mature way what is best for their children." Diane Pask of Saskatoon, a research officer with the com- mission, said orders for the maintenance of children are difficult to enforce and need review. She said studies in Ontario showed that only 20 per cent of such orders were fulfilled in the first year and Van's TV Sales Service think YOUR NEWS QUIZ PART I NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL Give yourself 10 points for each correct answer. 1 The food prices review board prices would (CHOOSE ONE: rise, fall) about 16 per cent in 1975. 2 Super Bowl IX, set to be played in New Orleans Sunday, January 12th, will determine the cham- pion team of the National (CHOOSE ONE: Hockey, Football) League. 3 The IRA hopes to free Northern Ireland from British rule.

Saskatchewan statistics probably would be about the same. Jail can result if such maintenance is not paid but this is a recourse which Saskatchewan courts "use with great reluctance." She said there are proposals for alternatives including one in which payments Would be made from public funds to avoid the often bitter and humiliating situation for wives after a divorce. "The state would then seek reimbursement by taking ac- tion against the defaulting spouse." Earlier, the audience was told the cdmmission is suggesting changes in Saskatchewan's matrimonial laws based on the concept that marriage is a partnership of equals. The traditional idea that a man and woman become one in marriage no longer is con- sidered acceptable by society.
