Acoustic coupler converts line Telephone for the deaf EDMONTON (CP) Deaf persons, if a pilot program in Edmonton is expanded success- fully, will be able to "talk" to other deal persons by telephone. A unit called an acoustic coupler, invented by a Califor- nia physicist, converts an ordi- nary telephone line into one which can translate signals in much the same way telegrams are sent. A deaf person wishing to make a call picks up the tele- phone receiver, places it in a special cradle and pushes a but- ton. The dial tone is converted into a light signal which indi- Cancer detection method revealed MONTREAL (CP) A detec- tion method for abdominal can- cer, developed by two Montreal doctors and adopted for use in Britain's National Health hospi- tals, hk1? received only limited recognition in Canada. Tire simple blood test, which detects cancer in the colon, pan- creas, liver, bowel and stomach at an early and curable stage, was developed more than five years ago at the Montreal Gen- eral Hospital by Dr. Samuel 0. New legal name for CP firm MONTREAL Canadian Pa- cific has a new legal name. Supplementary letters patent have been issued by the minis- ter of consumer and corporate affairs changing the company's corporate name from Canadian Pacific Railway Company to Canadian Pacific Limited in English and to Canadien Pa- cifique Limitee in French. For all normal usage, the company will continue to be designated as Canadian Pa- cific in English and Canadien Pacifique in French, reserving the use of the full name for le- gal and contractual documents. The change does not affect the identification system used for transportation services such as CP Rail, CP Air, CP Sups, CP Transport, CP Ex- press, Smith Transport, CP Telecommunications and CP Hotels. Two diplomats told to leave BAGHDAD, Iraq (Renter) Two British diplomats were or- dered today to leave Iraq within 24 hours because of their links with "a spy and intrigue net- the official Iraqi news agency reported here. The agency said the Iraq for- eign ministry has told the Brit- ish ambassador in Baghdad that the attache Hugh Harrison and first secretary George undesira- ble persons. Frecdman and Dr. Phil Gold. It was announced in London that the test will be in wide use in British hospitals by the fall. A London cancer specialist, Prof. Peter Alexander, de- scribed it as "one of the most important practical develop- ments in the last 15 to 20 years." Dr. Freedman, a McGill Uni- versity medical faculty profes- sor, said in an interview Mon- day that, he knows of only two Canadian hospitals using the Western Hospital and University Hospital in Ed- monton. Yet, he said, "more than people die of cancer of the colon in Canada every year." Abdominal cancer of all kinds was blamed for deaths annually in Britain. SEEPS INTO BLOODSTREAM Dr. Freeman said he and Dr. Gold, an assistant professor at McGill, developed the test after discovering that a chemical sub- stance developed in abdominal cancer tumors seeps into the bloodstream and can be de- tected. "A.chemical substance, carci- noembryonic antigen is released into the bloodstream in abdominal cancer cases. "We inject this CEA into goats, creating an anti-serum directed against the CEA. Then the anti-serum is added to the patient's blood in a test tube. "If the reaction between the patient's blood and the anti- serum is positive, we know the patient ir suffering from abdom- inal cancer. "What we're working on now is improving that test so the procedure is shorter and more situated for a mass scale use. We want to be able to treat more people quicker. "We also hope to adapt the test for other antigens to facili- tate deteciton of cancer in other sections of the human body. CEA is evident only in abdomi- nal cancer." Dr. Freedman said clinical trials to adapt thewjancer detec- tion method are being con- ducted at the Montreal General, the University of Alberta in Ed- monton, Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan cates the line is ready for use or lls if the line is busy. The person receiving the ea! sees a light on the phone, pick 1 up and places it in a similar cradle, types his name on th teletypewriter and waits for th caller to type out his message. The acoustical coupler con verts the electrical impulses o the teletypewriter into soun waves which travel over the te ephone line in the same way a voices. They are converted bac into electrical signals at the re- ceiving end and printed on th teletypewriter for the deaf per son to read. MAINTAINED BY DEAF The city-owned Edmonto Telephones is providing an in tial 70 lines at the norma monthly fee and Alberta eminent Telephones will donal old teletypewriters and wi train deaf persons to maintain them. R. A. Bauer, pastor of th Cross of Christ Lutheran Churc for the Deaf, where one th two units in the city is locatec says the system has been use in the United States for abou two years. "This is the first' time it ha been introduced in Canada. It the goal the association have such a system in th homes of all deaf persons in Al berta." The other unit has been i stalled at the home Mackbii Youngs, president of the Ed- mo nton Association for the Deaf. SIMPSONS-SEARS WAREHOUSE THURSDAY STARTS Croats chant as trial ends STOCKHOLM (Reuter) -The trial of five Croatian national- ists on charges of murdering the Yugoslav ambassador to Sweden ended today with the defendants chanting "Long live free Croatia; down with Yugo- slavia."

AAA probe set WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader said here the 13 million-member American Au- tomobile Association will be in- vestigated this summer. He said the AAA-should be, but isn't in the forefront support- ing safer cars and such re- lated things as pollution con- trol and improved insurance compensation systems. Foothills resources development too haphazard says commission RED DEER (CP) Develop- ment of resource areas along the foothills west of central Al- berta is poorly co-ordinated, says a report of the Red Deer regional planning commission. A lack of information has contributed to (lie confusion and a clear statement of gov- ernment intent is needed to produce orderly access to the region. The Foothills Road Study 1970 (imposes extension ot rail and highway routes into the forest- ed region and envisages two possible coal mining towns, in- creased petroleum exploration, at least one pulp mill and highways west through Banff National Park. Commission director Robert Cundx said the study is aimed at allowing orderly use of the region. But the report notes "no statement of planned develop- ment intentions for the over-all area has been given and conse- quently resource exploration and development has gone ahead with little or no refer- ence to a general guide of positive nature. Planners have held off on a detailed study because of loo little information from resource developers and government plans such as for water star- ago and diversion projects.
