Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI IETHBRIDOI HIRAID - Monday, Marth 29, 1971 Diabetes advance coming GENEVA (CP) - Dr. Charles Best of Toronto, who collaborated with Dr. Frederick Banting in the discovery of insulin, says "we can all look forward to some great breakthrough" in the methods of detecting diabetes. A major advance would come about "when we are finally able to know exactly how insulin acts," Best said in an interview with a magazine published by the Geneva-based World Health Organization. Best and the late Dr. Banting, working in a Toronto laboratory, isolated insulin late in 1921. In January of the next year they used it successfully in the treatment of diabetics. Now 72, Best told the publication World Health that "on the clinical side there remains a major gap" in the fight against diabetes. "In spite of knowing a great many things about diabetes, no one yet knows the real cause of the disease. "If the mechanism of the action of insulin could be completely elucidated and if we could find the exact cause of diabetes, that would represent two major breakthroughs." Best emphasized the need for quick detection of the disease. Spokesman denies arms sales report LONDON (CP) - The British foreign office said today a published report that Britain is ready to consider authorizing arms sales to South Africa is not true. The spokseman told reporters at a daily news conference: -The British government has made no commitment to consider applications for the export of radar and arms and equipment for maritime defence. -The South African government has made no new requests for any weapons beyond a number of Wasp anti-submarine helicopters which the British have undertaken to supply under the terms of the 1955 Simonstown agreement for the defence of the Cape of Good Hope sea lanes. The report that Britain is ready to consider issuing export licences for arms to South Africa was front-paged in The Times whose assistant editor, Louis Heren, said in part: "With some exceptions, licences will be available only for replacement orders. This is understood to mean the government will be prepared to license the sale of naval ships and possibly bucaneer reconnaissance aircraft." Many countries have been critical of British policy towards the white-minority, apartheid-practising S'outh African regime. Cemetery \ short of space HELENA, Mont.. (AP)- The Caster Battlefield National Cemetery near Hardin in south eastern Montana is running out of grave sites, says an American Legion official. "Montana war veterans who are planning to be buried in the Custer Battlefield National Cemetery may not be able to have a final resting there after January, 1973, if provisions are not made immediately to enlarge the present cemetery area," said Larry McCom-as of Lodge Grass, state chairman of the American Legion national cemetery committee. He said there are fewer than 250 available burial spaces left in the cemetery for veterans, with the annual rate of burial averaging 140. It will take about three years to have additional space made available, McComas said, after a government appropriation is filed. Any eligible veteran can be buried in the cemetery and many burials are for veterans from Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota, he said.
