Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Moy 10, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HEKAiD New treatment found for cancer LOS ANGELS (AP) A new bloodless method of dis- integrating certain cancer tu- mors by blocking their blood supply has been used succes- f ully to treat a brain tumor in a 70-year-old woman, physicians at the University of California at Los Angeles report. The blockage is accomplished by injecting silicone, the rub- bery material used to enlarge women's breasts, through a small tube to the site of the tu- mor. However, Dr. Robert Rand, who developed the method with Dr. James A. Mosso, noted Tuesday that only a limited The Social Committee of Brotherhood Locomotive Engineers Announces that the winners of the draw held May 2 are: Texas Mickey STAN KO5TA, Calgary No. 1302 Little Brother PETER MACK, Coaldole No. 1226 Little Brother MARNI GODDARD Fort Macleod No. 1754 number of with a well-defined blood supply- can be treated this way. Dr. Rand said the technique is useful also in repairing aneurysms, weak spots in the walls of blood vessels where they threaten to burst. He said that in such cases, the silicone is injected on both sides of the weakness to form a patch. A small amount of iron filings is mixed into the liquid silicone. After the liquid has been in- jected into the vessels near the tumor, a powerful helium- cooled electromagnet pressed against the patient's body holds the mixture in place until it sets. With the blood supply to the tumor completely sealed off, it is only a few days before the growth starts to shrink, said Dr. Rand. In addition to the elderly woman, Dr. Rand said four other patients have had the for cancer growths and two for aneurysms. He said all have been success- ful, but one of the cancer patients died because the dis- ease had spread to other parts of his body. Five-day work system still remains popular To the victor Associated Press photographer Nick Ut gets a kiss of congratulations from news- woman Ea'e Lederer in Saigon after it was announced that Ut had won the 1973 Pulitizer Prize for spot news photography. The 23-year-old Vietnamese photographer won the prize for his picture of a young Vietnamese girl fleeing a napalm attack. OTTAWA (CP) Despite limited experiments with work weeks as short as three days, the standard five-day system remains almost universally pop- ular, latest federal labor de- partment statistics on working hours indicate. The figures, contained in pre- liminary report to October, 1972, show that the vast major- ity of companies sur- veyed had five-day work weeks. A background paper pre- sented at last week's federal- provincial labor ministers' con- ference identified 233 firms across Canada as having adopted a four or three-day week. Of firms reporting with office employees, 99 per cent work five days a week. A hour week was worked by 46 per cent of the workers in the office category. Another 18 per cent worked 35 hours a week and 16 per cent worked 40 hours a week. Among the office employees, 58 per cent worked 7% hours a day, 20 per cent worked seven hours daily and 17 per cent put in work-days of either 7% or eight hours. About 31 per cent of the em- ployees surveyed were covered by collective agreements. Among non-office employ- directly engaged in production of goods and serv- ices and in auxiliary services relating to per cent work a five day-week. DUNLOP FORD Salesman of the Month!
