National Youth Corps 'would not work here9 CALGARY (CP) The director general of the job creation branch of the federal department of manpower and immigration says that a national Youth Corps to provide students with summer employment would not work. Cam MacKie. founder of the Company of Young Canadians (CYC) and the Opportunities LE STAMPEDE The western festival of St. Tite Quebec, attracts people each September. In Weekend Magazine this Saturday, James Quig writes about Quebec's version of the Calgary Stampede The lethbrtdge Herald for Youth (OFY) programs, said he sees little advantage in a Canadian version of the U.S. Youth Corps. "The compulsion approach which we have seen tried south of the border, such as the formation of a Youth Corps and the military draft, simply doesn't work these days." Mr. MacKie said this week. "The better way is getting people involved in actually do- ing things alone. The basic ob- jective of our programs is to develop self standing ac- tivities." He said the OFY and Local Initiatives Projects (LIP) programs -have lorced politicians "to meet a wide range of people in their com- munities with whom they have not previously had contact." THE BETTER HALF Research aimed at eliminating post-surgical pain LONDON, Ont. (CP) Re- search now being done into some of the most common ail- ments, cancer and hemorr- aimed at eliminating some of the pain and dis- comfort resulting from sur- gery. Dr. D. M. Grace, an assist- ant professor of surgery in University of Western On- tario's faculty of medicine, said that medication for galls- tones, super-cold freezing therapy to kill skin cancer cells, special plugs to stop stomach artery bleeding and intravenous feeding for per- sons without bowels to absorb the food they eat are all methods under ex- perimentation at present While surgery, the only hope in the past, remains an impor- tant factor in treating such diseases today, there are ways being investigated to avoid surgery in some cases, he said in an address to the London Medical Secretaries Association. Dr. Grace, staff surgeon at University Hospital, said hun- dreds of thousands of gall bladders are removed each year, comprising about 10 per cent of the adult population in developed countries. STUDY BABOONS Studies with baboons, who have produced gall stones much as humans do, is lead- ing researchers toward pre- venting stone formations, he said. Cryosurgery freeze which liquid ni- trogen is employed, is being used experimentally to kill cancer cells in certain types of human tumors. In the proc- ess, Dr. Grace said, there of- ten is little discomfort and no need for a general anesthetic. Neither is there much bleed- ing. Dr. Grace said the tech- nique is being used to treat certain types of head and neck cancers and while it is not considered a cancer cure, it is used to control the size of the tumor and its pain. The same technique is being used to treat hemorrhoids, he said. Traditional surgery for he- morrhoids can involve a fairly lengthy stay in hospital and considerable discomfort. But the cryosurgery approach, while by no means "the final answer." has proven capable of getting the affected person back to work faster with a minimum of pain involved. Dr Grace said. Some ulcer patients require surgery to stop stomach bleeding which may be threatening their lives. But Dr. Grace said studies with dogs have shown it is possible to pinpoint the location of a bleeding stomach ulcer with the use of method of following the blood- way through an artery. Because the stomach has more than one artery, it was deemed possible to use a type of "jell form" block to stop circulation at the ruptured point in the artery without surgery and without dam- aging the stomach tissue By Barnes All the teenage Rage "STOMPERS" CHILDREN'S SHOES by SAVAGE and CLASSMATES p ShpEfSi 1 UP 10 6 Brown c1- B'pwn arfl JUST ARRIVED Another Specialty at Camm's Men and DUTY SHOES ,oc, vVh fjylrjrrl Wl1h Mar1' DT Camm'9 Shoes 403 5th Stiwt MushputvpiS's 8'iTin rind your We re going 1o rigvf o burning FREE to Stamp Beautiful Gm Packet WITH BONUS APPROVALS Your Tsiame Address Town Prov Gilt Choice World Code USA Europe Australia WILLANA P.O.BOX 5388 801SE, IDAHO 83705 which must receive oxygen- ated blood constantly. While not a "recommended routine" yet, Dr. Grace said the technique has been used once in a patient who was in critical condition. The techni- que could be extended to cer- tain types of bleeding artery and fracture accidents as well, he added. Dr. Grace said the use of travenous a patient who was no longer ca- pable of acquiring enough nu- trition from eaten food be- cause his bowel had been re- moved due to disease was an- other technique under study. The surgical alternative for such patients would be a bowel transplant and to date none have been successful, he said. None of these methods are part of regular routine in hos- pitals at present, he said. But the hope for the future is that, in some cases at least, sur- gery will be avoided. Managers issue glue warnings Krazy Glue, a heavy duty product which should be kept away from children, is available in some Lethbridge stores. Consumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet has urged parents to heed the warning labels saying the product is dangerous and should not be used by children. He cited a case where the glue sealed shut for one week the eye of an eight year old Montreal boy. Ralph Pitt, manager of housewares and paints at Batons, says, "all we do is warn the people of its potency and if its not used properly, it's dan- gerous.'' Tom Baker, assist- ant manager of Woolworths, says he and some of the salesclerks have had their fingers stuck together by the glue. "When people ask about the glue, we tell them about our ex- periences vvith it and warn that it can be dangerous." Woolco's assistant manager says they don't feel it is necessary to have the clerks warn the customers of the glue when the warning is written right on the package. Designed for use in electronics, the glue also has been used in medicine as a substitute for suturing Its fast sticking action is initiated by contact with a moist surface. Jim Black, director of the consumer affairs department safety- products branch, said last week the depart- ment is looking at the labelling on all glue products and is en- couraging manufac- turers of powerful, fast acting glues to use safe- ty closure on their product containers.
