Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednoiday, May 10, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD If Southern Alberta played part Local reactions mixed on budget in hemophilia treatment find By BKKNICK HEIILE ilcrald Staff Writer Mrs. Arvil Sillifo, a reader of Weekend magazine, the L e t h- bridge Herald's Saturday sup- plement, posed a difficult ques- tion after reading an article in the May G issue. If Weekend is a Canadian magazine, she said, why would it mention the name of a dom- inant American person connect- ed with a story and leave out' entirely that of an equally-im. portant Canadian also coiuiecl- ed with the story? Mrs. Sillito, of 2410 8th Ave. N., was questioning the story "I Just Wanted To Be Uke Everyone Else." The story, about hemophilia, was written by Susan Carson, a Weekend Magazine staff writer Mrs. Sillito felt the name of Dr. Murray Thelin should have been mentioned in the Weekend story. She said it would have been of particular significance to Herald readers because he was not only a Canadian, but aji Albertan. Mrs. Sillito said Weekend named Judith Pool, a young American, as the scientist re- sponsible for the break-through in hemophilia treatment. This she felt was unfair be- cause Dr. Pool only began the idea of using a coagulating pro- tein concentrate in the treat- ment, but two other research- ers, Dr. Thelin mid Dr. Ed- ward Shanbrom, actually test- ed the concentrate and brought it. to the stage where it could be used for medical purposes. The August issue of the Header's Digest gives the cred- it in the hemophilia break- through to Dr. Thelin. In an article called "Dr. The- lin's Fight Against Hemo- Digest writers Patricia and Ron D e u t s c h say that though many people were in- volved in the discovery, "it was on this young biochemist that the final triumph centered." Dr. Thelin was born in 1927 on a farm near Orton, Alia. He has many relatives in the Leth- bridge district, is the son of Walter Thelin, and the grand- son of the late George Sillito. He is also the nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Arvil Sillito. Dr. Thelin was a hemophiliac bleeder. He was also deter- mined to tlo something for bleeders. When Murray was quite young his family moved to Seattle so he could begin his career as a hemophiliac re- searcher. In llilil Ur. Thelin joined the Hyland Division of Baxter Lab- oratories in Los Angeles, to search for a concentrate of the antihemophiliac AHF. the AHF to a powder when he suffered from a brain hemor- rhage. His co-worker, Dr. S h a n- brom, under his instruction, used the new drug to help pull him through. Dr. Thelin was thus the guinea pig for his own discovery. An award was given to Dr. Thelin from the Hemophilia Foundation, for his work in the fight against hemophilia, even e died JOE MA Herald Staff Writer Political parties in L e t h- bridgc today welcomed Finance Minister John Turner's budget provision for increased p a y- ments to old age pensioners based on the cost of living. But their agreement ended there. government again plays into the hands of the big cor- said Ken Hurlburt, [ormcr mayor of Fort Macleod and the Conservative candidate for the Lethbridge federal rid- ing. Transit ru les rigid Employees of the Lethbridge Transit System, drivers in par- ticular, have to observe rigid rules and regulations. They have to practice cour- tesy, be helpful, present a neat appearance, observe safety and act on the basis that the pas- senger is always right. The rules and regulations also call for special considera- tion to elderly persons and the handicapped, on-time running of buses and a host of other public relations musts wear- ing a smile one on the list. Failure to comply with the i rules and regulations may re- sult in caution, censure, proba- tion, suspension or termination of service, depending on the na- ture of the offence. Acts which lead to termina- tion of service include drink- ing on duty, dishonesty in han- dling city funds or property, assault of patrons, gross negli- gence contributing to an acci- dent, and failure to report an accident. Employees, on the o t h e r j hand, receive commendations for efforts beyond job require- ments in providing courtesy, sen-ice or safety to patrons or other persons, transit superin- tendent John Frouws says. Mr. Frouws welcomes sug- gestions and criticisms as to} how the transit system should be operated to provide a bet- ter public service.
