Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednoidoy, Moy 10, 1972 THE I.ETHBRIDGE HERALD It Southern Alberta played part Local reactions mixed on budget in hemophilia treatment find By UfiltNICE IIICIILE Jlcrald Staff Writer Mrs. Arvil Killito, a render of Weekend magazine, the L c I h- bridge Herald's Saturday sup- plement, posed a difficult ques- tion after reading an article in Ihe 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 wilh a story and leave o'.il entirely that of an equally-im- portant Canadian also connect- ed with the story? Mrs. Sillilo, of 2410 Ave. N., was questioning the story "I Just Wanted To Be Like Everyone Else." The story, aboi'l hemophilia, was written by Susan Carson, a Weekend Magazine staff writer Mrs. Sillilo felt the name ol 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 an Albertan. Mrs. Slllito said Weekend i 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. Thclin and Dr. Ed- ward Shanbrom, actually test- ed the concentrate and brought it lo 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 I 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 Orion, Alta. He has many relatives in the Leth- bridge district, is the son of Waller Thelin, and the grand- son of the late George Sillilo. He is also Ihe nephew of Mr. and Mrs. Arvil Sillito. Dr. Thelin was a hemophiliac bleeder, ile was also deler- mined lo du 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 Ur. Thclin joined the Ilyland Division of Baxter Lab- oratories in Los Angeles, Lo search for a concentrate of the anliliemophiliac factor-called the MU? to a powder when he brain hemor- Transit rules rigid Employees of the Lethbridge Transit System, drivers in par- ticular, have lo observe rigid rules and regulations.
