Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Smokers genes make them prone to lung cancer NEW YORK American and cancer reiearcberi working in Tex- as hospital have discovered an experimental blood test that on the .basis of two pilot studies apparently dis- tinguifbes cigarette smokers whose genes make them prone to lung cancer from those mutant to developing the malignant tumor. The test is now limited to research the chief In- Dr. Charles R. said in a telephone interview from his office at the M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Houston. But Shaw said he expected that researchers at four medical centers elsewhere would begin additional studies shortly and that at lesat two drug companies hope to develop a commercial test within two years. The test involves growing lymphocyte blood cells under artificial conditions in a thus precluding immediate prospects of mak- ing it a simple office procedure. Shaw the test could be done in the laboratories of most centers. Findings from the Houston pilot studies support the thesis that susceptibility to lung cancer is inherited. the researchers must do a long-term study of a large number of smokers before coming to final conclusions. The blood test does not dis- criminate among smokers who suffer other lung diseases DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN LETHBRIDGE or heart conditions that are aggravated by-if not caoted by cigarettes. Thu's a test clearing a smoker from the risks of lung cancer could not be expected to guarantee immunity from suet other hazards. Other researchers have suggested that the test could also lead eventually to the development of similar methods to determine who has increased susceptibility to en- vironmental cancer producing chemicals other than cigarettes.

Ford rejection suggested by Congressman Quick drying method The Canadian Forces high altitude test chamber in Toronto is used to quick-dry water-soaked audit files damaged in recent Toronto-Dominion Centre fire. The wet files are placed inside the chamber and taken to a simulated height of feet where in the rarified air the water becomes water vapor trying to fill the relative vacuum.

WASHINGTON A Massachusetts congressman said today Vice-President- designate Gerald Ford should be viewed as a potential presi- dent of the United States and rejected by Congress for lack of leadership. Representative Michael Harrington testifying at hearings of the House of Representatives judiciary committee on Ford's joined others who have praised Ford for honesty and decency in a long public life. in considering the qualifications of a man who stands a greater likelihood of assuming the presidency than any other vice-president in our said and decency are not enough.

Truck firms face driver shortage CALGARY Alber- ta's trucking companies face an acute shortage of qualified delegates at the Alberta Motor Transport Association's convention concluded at a weekend meeting here. The delegates believed the labor shortage was due to the rapid expansion of the in- changing public image of trucking as a career and inadequate driver-training programs. AMTA president Al Bietz said in the past many people came to the industry from farm communities. people were trained by their fathers with a good attitude toward equipment... young people are not coming off the farm today or if they are they are not coming to our industry in the numbers they once He also noted a number of the regular truck drivers have become owner-operators causing a shortage for those companies using their own equipment.
