Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -W.dnwday, July 14, 1971 IETHBR1DGE HERAID 19 may help Civil war has been raging for 15 years ___, ami ar. the Dolitical leaders have been The 'distrust dales more th cerebral palsy patients CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (Reutcr) Poison from a small, primitive sea animal could possibly be used to help people suffering from cere- bral palsy and other ailments which cause lack of muscular control, the University of Vir- ginia School of Medicine says. Research has shown that toxin given off by the soft, tubelike sea cucumber might relieve muscular overachyity without producing paralysis. The school says that if pre- liminary findings are con- firmed, researchers believe that toxin from the sea cuc- umber "might prove useful in the treatment of cerebral palsy and other spastic condi- tions caused by stroke dam- Auto-makers must prove ad claims WASHINGTON (AP) Is a Ford LTD really "over 700 per cent Are Oldsmobilcs "pollution Is the Super Beetle really different in 81 ways from Volkswagens of The Federal Trade Commis- sion today ordered seven U.S. and foreign automobile manu- facturers to submit documenta- tion for these and other claims made in advertising. The orders give four domestic and three foreign firms 60 days to respond. The information will be made public by the FTC for use by consumers and competi- tors in evaluating advertising claims. The FTC spokesman empha- sized that the agency will not make a public evaluation itself. But where documentation is clearly inadequate an investiga- tion for false advertising may ensue, he said. OTHER INDUSTRIES NEXT The orders to auto-makers are the first since the FTC last month declared its authority to make producers back up adver- tising claims relating to safety, performance, quality and com- parative prices. At that time, an FTC official said Hie agency hoped to make such demands on an industry- by-industry basis until most major advertising is covered. Today's orders seek documen- tation for 53 specific advertising claims dealing with gasoline mileage, acceleration and stop- ping performance, pollution re- duction and comparative price. Volkswagen, in addition to showing the changes in the age and brain and spinal cord iniuries." Dr. William Bunch, assist- ant professor of orthopedics at the university, says he found that sea cucumber toxin used on cats and frogs destroyed certain fibres that relay faulty regulative information from the brain to muscles. Other toxic substances can do the same thing, Bunch says, but they damage the en- lire motor system in the proc- ess. A spastic condilion is caused by brain damage which distorts impulses that stimulate or inhibit muscle use. As a result, there is a malfunction of the muscle spindle, a sort of "thermo- stat" that tells the nerve cell which controls a specific mus- cle just how long that muscle is. "In cerebral Bunch says, "the inhibitory inputs get lost and the spindle "is set too short. "This means that a flurry of incorrect impulses is sent out, and the muscle keeps trying to get down to that short length." Bunch maintains that if the relay of messages to the spin- dle from the spinal cord could NDP leader urges code of ad ethics EDMONTON (CP) The legislature should set up a code of ethics covering government advertising near election times, says Grant Notley, leader of the New Democratic Party. The provincial government's current campaign of nearly-full- page advertisements is "pretty he said. The legislature should discuss a set of rules on just how far departmental advertising should go and decide what is necessary for public informa- tion and what "is used simply to make the government look good." The NDP leader also said that unless Premier Harry Strom changes his mind about using premiums to finance the medical care insurance plan in Alberta, the NDP will make this an election issue. "The premier has stated that he has no intention of doing away with the premiums in spite of the fact that the fed- eral government proposes to tax an employer's eontribu- be blocked without depriving the muscle of its nerve sup- ply, spaslicity could be eon- trolled. "The rationale behind this is not all he says, "but nobody has been able to do it without cutting off the nerve supply entirely." The alterna- tives have been either spastic- ily or complete paralysis of the motor unit. Bunch believes that his re- search has slwnvn thai the sea cucumber toxin, which is sim- ilar to rattlesnake venom, de- stroys only the thin, unpro- tected motor fibre to Ihe spin- dle when injected into the nerve. The thicker, insulated fibre to the muscle is left in- tact. Bunch's research is cur- rently directed toward gen- eral toxitity studies designed to see whether the substance is harmful to Ihe body in any way. If these tests show that no harm to the body results from Ihe use of sea cucumber toxin, and with the approval of the United States Food and Drag Administration, the sub- stance will be tested on hu- mans. Bunch believes the sea cue umber toxin might prove o particular value in the Ireat ment of certain cases o spinal cord injm Tire flight of refugees is increas- g in Sudan's civil war, which as been going on 15 years. Neighboring Uganda now has of these refugees. A lotal KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) said to went there in the last ight weeks of lhan n all of 1969, say official figures rom Ihe Uganda government j nd the United Nations. Sudan is bordered by Uganda n the south and Egypt on the wrth. The rebellion is in the south- rn area. The military govern- ment which seized power here n May, 1969, is officially seek- ng a peaceful solution but one ,op official says at least two more "rebel" ail-strips must be destroyed first. "We are not after a military the commander of fed- eral forces in the south, recently told the press. Maj.-Gen. Mu- barak Osman Rahama added: "Our target is saving innocent lives and proving our good in- tentions." OFFER NOT SPELLED OUT Khartoum made an offer ol regional autonomy in 1969, but this has never been spelled out The Khartoum government now faces a more active guerrilla force. "The south" refers to some four million people living in the provinces of Bahr el Ghaz'al Upper Nile and Equatoria. Pre- haps residents are Chris tian, and Moslem. More than three million are pagan. number about A federal force of some or two- thirds of the Sudanese army, is looking for them.

Five months ago, in a supnse move, the Nile provisional gov- ernment surrendered its auton- omy to the Anya-Nya, saying Emergency state declared during rugby team visit BRISBANE, Australia (AP) The Queensland state govern- ment has declared a state of emergency during the visit of he South African rugby union earn. The Springboks are due to spend 10 days in Queensland starting July 22. Premier Johannes Bjelke-Pe- terson said Hie declaration was necessary to obtain the only venue for the matches which would provide safety for public, police and players. Earlier, the Royal National Association which controls the proposed venue, Brisbane's ex- hibition sports ground, had re- jected, moves to stage the games there. Bjelke-Pelerson said Ihe cabi net had decided on its extreme action because of the threat o violence and defiance of law and order. The declaration mong them that of search without a warrant. It also permits the slate to sk the federal government for .he use of the array for anil-riot control. More than 600 anti-apartheid demonstrators have been ar rested since the Springboks ar- rived in Australia June 24. JAILED WITHOUT TRIAL SINGAPORE (Reuter) The Singapore High Court dismissed Tuesday applications for writs of habeas corpus brought by four executives of a Chinese-lan- guage newspaper who were jailed without trial under the country's Internal Security Act All four were arrested May 2 Two-year detention handed to them then said thej had used the paper, Nanyanj, Siang Paul, to glorify commu nism, highlight the more unsa vory aspects of Singapore lit and whip up Chinese chauvin ism. the political leaders have been unable to unite the rank and file and leaving it to the Anya-Nya to carry on. Col. Joseph Lango, a graduate of Khartoum Military College, thus was recognized as presi- dent of the Anya-Nya Liberation Movement. WEAPONS DISPLAYED A display of weapons alleg- I edly taken in Anya-Nya engage- ments was opened in Khartoum a few weeks ago. Many of the weapons were old, but sub-ma- chine-guns and mortars were Iso displayed. They originated n both Eastern and Westerr ountries. The war began in August 955, a few months before Sudan achieved independence f r o n Britain. It may have taken half a million lives. It is not a war between blacks and Arabs.

Expensive red tape would be eliminated if the premiums were abolished and if the insurance scheme is financed from general revenue it would be more closely related to the ability-lo-pay principle.
