New Voice Boxes Restore Speech TORONTO (CP) A Toronto surgeon says he has built new voice boxes that have restored speech to 15 victims of throat cancer. Dr. Simon McGrail, chief of the otolaryngology department of Wellesley Hospital, said to- day the new larynx permits the patient to speak in an almost normal voice. Previously throat cancer pa- tients, who had their voice boxes removed, learned to speak by "burping" words by forcing air from their stomachs. Many patients find it difficult or impossible to master such a method of speech. The larynx, Dr. McGrail said, is a two-inch long cylinder through which air passes en route to the windpipe directly below. Dr. McGrail said to an inter- view that his method involves connecting to the lungs a tube made of the patient's shoulder skin. "The reason we can talk is because our lungs are connected to our he said. "The exhaled air from the lungs cause the vibrations we use to make sounds." RESTORES LINK He said when he inserts the tube that restores this link most patients "have pretty good three to four weeks later." Dr. McGrail said he devel- oped the operation 15 months ago with Dr. David Oldfield of Kingston, formerly a student doctor at Wellesley hospital. The two doctors were to de- scribe the operation today to the Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology in Las Vegas, Nev. Dr. McGrail said the eight- hour operation produces a slightly guttural voice, but one close to the' patient's natural voice. "We haven't all the problems licked said Dr. McGrail. "But, it's an improvement." New Method To Teaching Medicine TORONTO (CP) Dean A. L. Chute said here the Univer- sity of Toronto's new medical sciences building will use the systems approach to the teach- ing of medicine. He said the method involves organizing medical teaching around body systems, such as blood circulation, the nerv o u s system and respiratory system, replacing teaching under de- partments. In this method, the depart- ments of surgery, pathology, ob- stetrics or any others, would each approach the understand- ing and treatment of a disease from its own viewpoint, the dean of medicine told a news conference. Dr. Chute said the new method requires the medical school course to be divided into three periods, the first two 18 months long dealing with nor- mal and abnormal functioning of the systems and a third of 12 months in which students par- ticipate to treatment of patients. The million building was built to accommodate addition- al medical school enrolment. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN IS Wo: br Till Chkm Trlbwl East-West vulnerable. West deals.

Pass Fits Opening lead: Ace of 0 A shrewd shift by West is .Wending against Smith's four heart contract, put the latter to an immediate guess. When the declarer misread the situation, the defense cashed out before he could get his campaign off the ground. West opened the ace of diamonds which held the first trick. With the appearance of a singleton diamond in dum- my, there was little to be gained by continuing the attack in that suit, and West decided to look elsewhen for tricks. He could expect to take book in his own hand by cashing out the two black aces, It appeared that unless East held a sure trick In hearts, however, the defense might just as well fold its once the aca of clubs was long suit would provide enough discards to take care of any losers held by the declarer. West observed that there was one other..prospect available to him which in- volved finding his partner with the queen of spades and declarer with the jack. By putting South to an immedi- ate guess in spades before the ace of clubs is driven out, West might .uncover an extra trick. At trick two, West shifted to the three of spades. South was now -saddled with the burden of finding the winning play. If West his underlet! the ace, then declarer must play the king from dummy. If, however, West had mads the more orthodox lead away from the queen, then a low card is the proper play in order to force out the ace from East. There was no clear-cut clew available from the bidding because there were loo many high cards outstanding, so South was left with a guess. Declarer chose to play the four of spades from dummy and East put up the queen which held the trick. A ipade return went to West's ace and the latter hastened to cash the ace of clubs for Uio setting trick. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Be ready to revise plane that involve estimates of future' business. Original work brings fresh opportunity, perhaps con- troversy. Distant people sudden- ly seem much more involved. PISCES (Feb. II March Quietly press forward with nor- mal, routines. Avoid involve ment in matters which must be kept secret. Add a little to your savings account. Newsday, Inc. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Most Normal People Can Exercise Safely Unless you have a serious ill ness or unusual problem there is no reason you can't exercise. If you have serious doubts about your health, you should see your doctor and find out exactly what you can do. Many of life's normal situa- tions will cause the heart to work harder than some forms of light exercise. Apprehension or excitement may cause the heart rate and blood pressure to go up increasing the work of the heart. You can't escape having changes in the level of heart work unless you are emo- tionally dead. For most people who have been inactive for a long time the right, place to start is by walking. You don't need to hurry when you start. Enjoy your walk and you are more likely to include it in your living hab- its. Start with 15 minutes a day if you tire easily. Gradually in- crease your walk to 30 minutes. If half an hour is no problem, increase your level to one hour a day or two 30-minute walks a day. After you have reached the level of walking one hour a day for two weeks, you can consid- er the advisability of doing something more strenuous. If you tire with one hour of walk- ing, after a gradual build up program, you are not ready to go on to higher levels of exer- cise and probably should see your doctor. If you get short of breath or have chest pain with walking, discontinue your pro- gram until you can get a good examination. Assuming you pass the walk- ing phase with flying colors, if you need more exercise there is a variety you can choose from. One of my favorites is to recom- mend using a stationary bicy- cle. Get one that allows you to put some tension on the wheel, to cause some work for the leg muscles. Don't try to exercise at too heavy a load or to pedal too fast. A steady, everyday ap- proach is the right way. You can pedal .while you watch your favorite TV program.. The cycle is a good way for the weekend TV sports spectator to get some exercise. Jogging and running pro- grams should be undertaken only by the young or those ob- v i o u s 1 y in reasonably good health. Even the young need the preliminary walking period to strengthen ankles, tendons and muscies. Christmas Film NEW YORK (AP) Scrooge, the musical version of Charles kemi' classic, A Christmas Carol, Li to'open simultaneously as the holiday attraction at New York's Hadio City Music Hall, London's Dominion Theatre and the Scalaza Theatre hi Tokyo. The film stars Albert Finney as Ebenezer Scrooge and co- stars Sir Alec Guiness as Mar- ey's Ghost, Kenneth Moore as the Ghost of Christmas Present and Dame Edith Evans as the Ghost of Christmas Past. Leslie Bricusse has written 11 new songs for the film which was produced in England. The key to a successful exer- cise program is a gradual in- crease in level of activity and for most adults never pushing one's self to maximum effort. Canada Price Rise One Of Lowest OTTAWA (CP) The current pace of price inflation in Can- ada is one of the least severe in Hie world, international statis- tics show. A comparison of changes in consumer prices, published in the October bulletin of the Inter- national Monetary Fund, shows Canada and Switzerland with in- creases of about three per cent in the year to least among 14 rich, industrial countries. By comparison, the IMF prices index shows increases ol six per cent to the 12 July in the United States, Brit- ain and France. A galloping inflation rate of 11 per cent is recorded for Nor- way, with Denmark at eight per cent and Sweden at seven. Japan, West Germany and Bel- gium show increases of four per cent in consumer prices. Elsewhere in the world, a few countries are doing better than Canada and declined in Paraguay and Haiti some are much worse off. Inflation in Chile, for exam- ple, is 10 times as severe as Canada's at 31 per cent in the year to July. Hudson's Bay Bill Passed OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons has approved the shift ol Hudson's Bay Co. from Eng- land to Canada by giving third reading to a Senate bill grant- ing the company federal incor- poration. The company, with 300 years' history Canada, has been a British clitred corporation since it was given its charter by Charles II. This year it is moving its headquarters to Winnipeg. Robert Simpson ill) said Manitoba is "particu- larly pleased" to welcome the company, despite earlier criti- cisms by the New Democratic Party that Hudson's Bay was "exploitive" of the native popu- lation. The bill was given third read- tog on a voice vote. Only royal assent is, needed now for the bill to become law. THE MILKY WAY MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) Pa- trolmen H. E. Higgins and ry E. Hutson came upon a milk truck with its engine on fire. They had no fire extin- guisher but reported later that 14 half pints of milk, put out the blaze. Andy sends a World Book Atlas to Sarah Levy, age 11, of Peterborough, Ontario, Can- ada, for her question: Was the Frankenstein monster or just a story? No. that weird creature was never real, nor was the Dr. who is supposed o have created it. The whole lantastic yarn was made up rom a young lady's imagina- tion, one evening back in the early 1800s. She was Mary Shcl- ey, wife of the famous poet, Percy B. Shelley. It seems that ,hcy were living in Italy, to the company of otnw poets of the day. One evening, or so the story goes, a group of them in- vented a sort of intellectual pastime. Which of them could write the grisliest ghost story? Young Mary, so they say, went to her room and thought up the outline for the Franken- stein just about scar- ed herself to death. When her story was told to the group, no other could compare with it. In 1818, it was published under the title Frankenstein. Many films have been based upon it but they differ from the original tale except in one import- ant detail. The monstrous cre- ation was never real. Questions asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington California 92M8.
