Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IEIHBRIDGE HERALD Wc-dnoiday, November 4, Canada, U.S. Closing Gap Chemical Testing Drug, By KEN KEI.Y Canndlaii Press Sclcnw Writer OTTAWA (CP) Canada nnd (he United States are near to plugging a gap in foiling proce- dures applied lo drugs and other chemicals used as medi- cines or in Hie diet. Toxicologisis ui I lie food and drug regulatory agencies o! both countries arc working out standard ways to check the genetic effects of compounds be- fore they are allowed to be used by the public.

Phone 327-1418 of genelic effects of their prod- ucts. There will he in a matter of weeks if current talks result hi an agreement between Canada's federal food aad drug directo- rate and the United States' food nnd drug administration. The scientists have agree on testing procedures but for the moment arc hung up on inter- preting (he applications for hu- mans of test results with ani- mals. They are proposing three test- ing procedures to sec whether chemicals can produce cell changes that arc transmitted to future generations. In one set, large doses of Ihe chemical in question are admin- istered to the male of a species. He is then mated and the off- spring are examined for abnor- malities or fetal deaths. TEST BACTERIA A second set involves inject- ing bacteria into the abdominal cavity of mice or rats which are then treated with heavy doses of the chemical. The implanted cells then are withdrawn and examined for any hereditary changes. Iii Ihe third tests, while blood cells of anim given large doses nre examined by high- power microscope for any alter- ations in the chromosomes, iae lliread-like bodies in cells which are up of g.nes, the benr- ers of hereditary characleris- lies. the problem with all three tests is lhat the chemical being tested is administered in very large doses, and this makes it difficuli for scientists to _ ay def- initely what the genetic effect may he at lower doses in hu- mans. Some scientists argue lhat any r'lelic change is sufficient evidence on which to ban use of a Olliers maintain that all hi- ologicH Changes, with one possi- ble exception, are lo (he size of the chemical dose, and thai ties also nr, be true of genellc change. The possible ex- c e p t i o n is cancer-producing chemicals for which size of dose seems not to count. Until this dispute is resolved, Canada the Uniled States apparently do not to insist on <-5nctic testing of chemicals. Fame Came Late To Col. Sanders HARLAND SANDERS 80 Years Young By GARY LUHIl S11ELBYVILLE, Ky. (AP) Fame came late lo Harland Sanders. That is why Iho gentleman with while hair antl goalee, whose face appears on signs over restaurants across North America, is just beginning lo talk aboul slowing down as he celebrates his 80lh year. For "Ihe the car- eer lhal has made him a cc- lebrily began in 1350. Al an age when most men begin drawing pensions, he em- barked on an enterprise that revolutionized the food indus- try. Based on a recipe and keen business acumen, the Ken- tucky Fried Chicken Corp. has grown into a multi-million-dol- 1 a r -a -y e a r empire and spawned dozens of imitators in the field of fast-toed fran- chising. But, in 1956, the colonel was satisfied with the living he made from a single restaur- ant in Corbin, Ky. II was there that his receipt for "fin- ger-lickin' good" fried chicken was bom. SI EPT IN CAR For 214 decades, (he colonel served hungry tourists on their way to and from Flor- ida. During lire period he built his business from a single (lin- ing room behind a service sta- tion into a 142-seat restaurant and US unit motel, Then, in 1950 plans were announced for a nw super- highway lo run seven miles west of Corbin and Ihe colonel auctioned his business. With the money he mace, plus a Social Security cheque in ills pocket, he hit Ihe road with a sack of seasoning and two pressure cookers lo try lo sell his chicken-frying process to olhers. Aflcr two years o! direct salesmanship, frequently sleeping in the back seat of liis car to cut expenses, he had around 100 franchises from which he received foul1 cents for every chicken sold. By the end of 19G3, a few months before he sold the United Stales segment of his growing enterprise to a group of investors for million, there were more than 600 franchises in the United States and Canada, far more than the company's nearest rival. The colonel was re- tained on salary for promo- tional work on the company's behalf. He also retained con- trol of the Canadian outlets.
