Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIO IS Cholera epidemic feared MOW DELHI (Rei'tcr) Troops are moving inlo the cy- clone-battered eastern India slntc of Orissa to Iielp speed up relief operations amid fears of a cholera epidemic. The official death toll in the cyclone, which struck last weekend, is put at but local estimates are that the final figure could climb as high as Six cholera death-; have been reported in I he last of days. Bloaied bodies and stagnant lakes of water still lying in the more isolated areas have raised fears lhal the disease could spread easily among the one million left hungary and home- less. Orissa's health minister, H. K. Palnaik, said cholera had not yet broken out in epidemic form and lha; a million doses of vac- cine already had been sent into devastated areas. Three array medical learns have flown from Luc-know in northern India to Orissa's capi- lal, Bhubancswar, with supplies of drugs, hospital tenis, milk powder and blanker. The army central command I1 as .set up temporary headquar- ters at Bhubaneswar to co-ordi- nate relief operations for survi- vors, many of whom arc ma- rooned in remote areas without food and drinking water. "This seems to be the year of natural said tine offi- cial, referring to the droughts that have ocurrcd in four of In- I din's 17 stales, the floods KI six others and now the cyclone and tidal wave in within a span of .seven months. There might soon be another disaster.

The concept envisions airtight connected buildings with access to ocean environment through airlocks. joint device CALGARY fCP) An clec- Irically operated knee joint for artificial legs has been de- veloped by a technical team at the Calgary General Hospital, Cr.radian Association of Oc- cupational Therapist was told here. A 2'i-year-old patient, whose leg was amuplated last year in a motorcycle accident, learned 10 walk on the artificial leg with an electric knee in a litUe more than three hours. Usually, it lakes two or three days for a young patient to learn the use of conventional- type limbs. FIRST OF KIM) The electric device, believed the first of its kind, requires less expenditure of energy than with other artificial limbs. A major problem with artifi- cial legs is that the knee may "biickel" at an undesired stage of the stride arid allow the pa- tient to fall, said George Clynch who heads the hospital project. The electric mechanism locks the knee in a variety of posi- tions until the patient's weight is transferred to his living legs. Mr. Clynch, who trained as a prosthetist in England, has perfected the device during a five-year period. He has head- ed flic pru-slhclics department df Calgary General for the last three years. Delegates were told, how- ever, that the electric knee is still in the prototype stage. KI.ECTKIC MOTOR The dprico utilizes a geared- down electric motor, tiny enough to fit inside the artifical limb along with its power sup- ply. Rechargeable batteries allow 11 lo operate for as long as three days before the energy is restored by connecting the pow- er pack to a wall plug over- night. Mr. Clynch said the current exporimenUil device is still fairly heavy, mil he hopes lo reduce Ihc weight by using light alloy materials. The cost has not been estab- lished.
