Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta EIMAI EAII after centuries of slow decline may be at hand for one of ancient Rome's most spectacular FINAL FALL monuments, the Colosseum. Kapidly succumbing to modern assault from auto fumes, traffic vibrations and industrial pollution, the historic arena has been partially closed to protect sightseers from chunks of falling masonry.'Below left, disappointed tourists on the outside anxiously looking in and, right, steel Bcaffolding covering the south wall. Legend in the Middle Ages had it that when Ihe Colosseum falls, the world fall. Another windoiv to the human body Nuclear physics aids doctors By C. G. McDANIEL AP Science Writer CHICAGO (AB) Nuclear physics is providing doctors with another window to the human body. While the x-ray continues to provide helpful views, the re- cently come of age full-body bone scan can provide views of some abnormalities before they are seen on x-ray pictures. And these nuclear scans can also sometimes eliminate the need for surgery. These highly sophisticated tests are performed on about five patients a day at Rush- Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Centre in Chicago with radioac- tive material obtained each morning from the nearby Ar- gonne National Laboratory. GAINS ACCEPTANCE Says Dr. Ernest W. Fordham, head of the medical centre's nu- clear medicine department: "Bone scaning has come of Initially, these tests were more time-consuming and cum- bersome and less sensitive than they now are. Because of the technology re- quired, only major medical centres perform the bone scans which give a picture of what is not in the entire skeleton. However, recently developed radioactive materials still being studied may soon make it posi- We for smaller hospitals to per- form similar tests. Radioactive material, injected into the patient's bloodstream, is taken up in the body by bone at higher levels than in other parts of the body. And in bone, it is taken up at higher levels where there is growing bone, new bone, repair- ing bone or remodelling bone.

High concen- trations of radioactivity -are shown as more intensely dark areas, or "hot on the picture. Nuclear medicine specialists Interpret the scan pictures just as radiologists interpret x-rays. They can diagnose disease from patterns of "hot or the absence of them. The early detection of malig- nancy makes possible earlier and more successful treatment, as well as more conservative treatment, he said. Scans are useful, too, in find- ing the source of pain when there is no clear-cut cause, For- dham said. These scans can show in bone disorders whether just one bone is involved or several, he said. And they are useful in diagnos- ing rickets and spinal tubercu- losis and a number of other bone gout. Elect officers to ATAC board VICTORIA (CP) R.

The LetKbridge Herald Third Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, November 2, 1972 Pages 27 to 32 Alabama governor recovering from shock Wallace: life must go on By JON NORDHEIMER New York Times Service MONTGOMERY, Ala. Af- ter more than five months of pain and self-doubt, Gov. George C. Wallace of Alabama is beginning to emerge from the shock of the assassin's bul- lets that had crippled his am- bitions as wen as his body. Still far from the fiery, In- exhaustible campaigner who stunned the nation in a series of presidential primary victo- ries in the early spring, Wal- lace's health has reached point of relative stability. His physicians still fear that a secondary infection could im- peril his life because his body's reserves remain weakened from a long battle with Infec- tion. But they are now assured that the last of the lingering abcesses implanted by his wounds ones that severely Jeopardized his recovery have now been eliminated. Moreover, Wallace, 53 years old, appears to have reconciled himself to the crushing pros- pect that he will never again walk independent of heavy leg braces or other devices that give scant mobility. "It's difficult to accept but life has to go he said in a series of conversations last week. "There are still a lot of tWcgs I can do and I am lucky to be alive as well. "Naturally, there are times when I get despondent, but that's beginning to go away. I don't have those real bad pe- riods of depression any more." His family, staff and friends still try to buoy his spirits with optimistic talk about the full re- storation of his physical pow- ers. Those who know him believe that the governor could have contended with the fact of be- ing crippled in the legs, if that was the only lasting damage in- flicted by the bullets fired by Arthur Bremer as Wallace campaigned in Maryland last May 16. But the spinal cord in- jury he suffered at that time has also paralyzed his low- er body, and deprived him of control of his bladder and bow- els, and other normal functions, and these were the complica- tions that had temporarily made him despondent. Contributing to the trauma of the nature of the injury was the anomaly of pain. Sharp, severe and throbbing pain that can only yield to drugs has been the paradox of his paralysis; there is no sensation below the waist except for its stabbing thrusts. As for the assassination at- tempt Itself, the governor said he has never seen any evidence to prove that Bremer was act- ing in concert with other in- dividuals. "I have no bitterness toward him (Bremer) and I've forgiven he said. "I hope he's asked for his own forgive- ness." Wallace will not t'iscuss his political future with journalists, and in the heat of this pres- idential election campaign he has sought neutrality by insist- ing he is only interested for the moment in his own recovery and hasn't the time or energy to participate in partisan polit- ics. Yet it is expected that the re- sults of the Tuesday election will evince the first strong po- litical statement from Wallace since the attempt on his life. If President Nixon wins a land- slide victory, as the polls now predict he will do, it is likely that the governor will use the moment to indicate that his presidential ambitions have not been permanently abandoned. His appearance now tends to be more contemplative and withdrawn; it strikes some as if his wounds and his struggle for life had summoned a_ mellow- ness that may have existed within him before but rarely surfaced in public. "Since my he says, employing his euphemism for the shooting, "I'm a little more mindful of the suffering other people have endured. Now I can really understand the plight of people who don't have the things that most of us take for granted. I know I now ap- preciate what being in excel- lent health means more than before I was shot." No money in panning gold EDMONTON (CP) Joe Biollo hasn't given up panning for gold. 'There's no money to be made in says the 54-year- old steamfitter. "I just like to do it." Mr. Biollo operates along the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, but he's also panned the McLeod River near Edson, Alta., Cherry Creek near Ver- non, B.C., and worked with Yukon Gold Consolidated on Bonanza Creek near Dawson City in the Yukon. In the last 10 years of panning during the summer, he's col- lected about four ounces of gold worth about an ounce. When he collects enough gold dust, he can cash it in at a local jeweller or send it to the mint. Mr. Biollo goes down to the river with his shovel, sluice box, a separator called a grizzley, screen and pump and patiently looks for tiny flecks of gold as fine as flour. "The gold here would take 500 to 600 colors to make the size of a penny." He's been panning periodi- cally since he was 13 years old. "I used to make my spending money that way during the De- pression." JUST A HOBBY Mr. Biollo starts out by scoop- Ing up a shovel of gravel and sand from the river bank. He tosses it into the sluice box which separates the heavy gravel from the fine sand and gold and then passes the sand over the grizzley which sepa- rates it more. The fine black sand and gold then drops on a screened blan- ket. This is mixed with mercury which picks up the gold from the black sand. The mercury is squeezed through a chamois and the amalgam is heated to drive off the mercury and leave the gold. "It's a lot of hard work for what you get out of he says. "But then, most hobbies don't pajr. You just enjoy them." MOLSON CAIADIA ;
