Spokesman for the Canadian Medical Association and the Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons also said they knew of no other such case. Dr. Harry Stevens, who per- formed the surgery on Mrs. An- derson, was enthusiastic about Monday's success. He stressed, however, that he would like to see more success- ful cases before saying whether it is effective.

Dr. Stevens said an anesthet- ist was standing by during the operation but was not needed. He said he was also surprised thai the patient required no pain reliever after the oper- ation, as is usual, and that she had much less bleeding than normal. "I'm impressed by the re- suits, but we have to see a lot more before making any judg- ment." Dr. Stevens added.

Glacial island wedding boosts Canadian status (Formerly Vivian 1102 -9th Avenue South 's Beauty Shop) Phone 327-0640 SHIRLEY MESSMER MOTHER'S DAY is Sunday, May 13th TREAT YOUR MOTHER TO A NEW HAIR STYLE FOR "HER DAY" 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN ALL PHASES OF BEAUTY CULTURE NORMA RONNES TIARA BOUTIQUE TRY US YOU'LL LIKE US SHIRLEY McNALLY FLETCHER'S ISLAND. N.W.T. (CP) Canadian sov- ereignty in the Far North was reaffirmed before 16 dered men of a United Stales naval laboratory when a mountie ancl his bride showed up in their mess hall to be married. It was a true wedding in white for RCMP Constable Ross Pollock and Diane Un- derwood, conducted on a gla- cial island which is pan of the polar ice pack 300 miles south of the North Pole. In the interests of Canadian sovereignty the RCMP period- ically bring the Canadian flag lo the area where the U.S. de- tachment is located. Last week the patrol plane arrived in Ree.ohite Bay about the same time Constable Pollock and Miss Underwood decided to get married. Constable Pollock had been serving with the Resoluie Bay RCMP while Miss Under- wood, originally from Van- couver, had been working as i a receptionist for an aviation company at Resolute. They were about to be mar- ricd among the dreary famil- iarity of the settlement build- ings when Inspector Vic Irv- ing, commanding officer for the patrol, saw a great oppor- tunity to boost Canadian sov- ereignty and celebrate the RCMP's 100th birthday a! the same time. AFTKK PM Inspector Irving was no amateur at unusual weddings, having handled the security for Prime Minister Trudeau's surprise marriage in Van- couver. So he bundled up the con- stable, the bride, mothers and fathers, fresh flowers flown from Edmonton, champagne. wedding dress and all aboard his noisy Twin-Otter arcral't and set out to complete the strangest patrol Island has ever seen. They arrived at the 15-mile- island in the best weather in de- grees below zero and bright sunshine. Golden Mile Next week: Monday: Keep fit a.m. Bingo 2 p.m. with cash prizes.
