Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Small motors revolve cafe Wactno.doy, 11, 1972 THE LETHBP.IDGt HERALD 43 bull COLUMBUS, Ohio CAP) A seven-month-old Jersey bull was sold for hero at Ihc All American Jersey Cattle Sale on Ihe Ohio State Fair- grounds. It was the scccnd- higlicsl price ever paid for a Jersey, only short ol the record. This month workmen are topping Vancouver's tallest building with the west coast's first revolving restaurant, which will 'provide diners with one of the world's most stun- ning panoramas. At one revolution per hour, diners will take in the sweep of the Pacific with Vancouver Island in the distance, moun- tains seven short miles away that stay snow-capped as late as July, spectacular, Fuji-like Mount Daker in Ihe State of Washington, happy-looking sailboats in the eily's own beau tiful English Bay. The building is the new 42 storey Sheraton Landm a r 1 Hotel, owned and ope-ated by Wosk's Lid., a Vancouver-bascf public company. The hotel open in January. Revolving restaurants, whic are like a huge glass face doughnut, are not new to Can ada. There are others in To- ronto, Niagara Falls, Edmonto and Calgary. But there is sti a great deal ol public curiousily es the diners is 13 feet wide. a base (or the restaurant, hold is capped with ound 92-ft. diameter concrete table." A few feel in from te edge, running around the ntire table, is a ring of 112 asters on wheels, each of vhich is equipped with full jearings, and can easily carry load of audit pounds. )n top of these gees the steel ramc supporting Hie restaur- ant itself. This frame, which also serves as the track which vill roll over the fixed caslers, s then covered with 3V4 inches of concrete, which becomes the iase of the reslaurant. But the surprising fact is that the entire restaurant, which can weigh over 200 tons com- about how they work what makes them turn. Here's Ihe inside story from Alan Tappenden of Fred S. Tap- penden Ltd., Edmonton. Tap- penden custom manufactures a variety of specialized heavy machinery and is responsible for the mechanical installation of the Sheraton Landmark's restaurant. This is their third Canadian installation. The Sheraton Landm ark restaurant, has an outside di- ameter of 84 feel. The rim or "doughnut" section which car- plete with 240 diners and staff, is driven around by two tiny motors set 180 degrees aparl. This is the size of motor on a typical washing machine. "Actually it's not too aston- says Tappenden. "The motors themselves turn at liiOO revolutions a minute, but since the room only revolves once in an hour, you have a whale of a gear reduction. When you gear something down like that, a small motor can pull at tre- mendous load. You also have to give a lot of credit to ths roller bearings in those casters which go a long way toward In addition to minimum fric- tion, what little noise there might be has also been'virtual- ly eliminated by using caster wheels with a hard nylon cov- ering.

For every 100 head cfl the grazing range, one black sheep is inter- spersed Ihrough ti.e large Hock. The black ones can easily be spotted at the end ol the day, and herdsmen figure that if one black sheep is missing, about 100 while ones are also missing. CUT DOWN FATS- AMD LIVE! Cigarette smoking, tension, lack of exercise all are hrart killers. But there's one more, just as serious. Heart specialists show how we dig our own graves by including too much fat and cholesterol in our daily diets. _ Strong evidence indicates this is the reason North Americarshave four limes more heart disease than the Japanese. Be sure to read "The Hole of Fats" part, of a compelling 3-part feature, "YOU AND HEART" in the October Read- er's Digest. It could be the most important reading you do this year! Develops springs for fractures CHICAGO (AP) A Polish surgeon who has developed springs to be implanted Iwside the spinal corrl says he has tients whose progress has been followed for five years or long- er. WIDELY USED 111 addition to use in Poland, found they improve recovery of doctors in England and West patients with paralysing in- Germany have treated about SO juries. He described this technique during visits to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Re- habilitation Institute of Chi- cago, both affiliates of North- western University McGaw Medical Centre. The surgeon, Dr. Marian Weiss, professor and chairman of the institute of rehabilitation and reconstruction surgery at Warsaw Medical Academy, is touring spinal cord treatment centres in the United- States- The double row of circular springs, made of surgical steel, is implanted along cither side of the spinal column and fixed in place with hooks in the cord Developed in I960 by Weiss and his colleagues, the springs have been used on 140 patients who arrived at the rehabilita- tion institute within 24 hours of injury. He reported on 92 pa- rses with this method, Weiss laid in an interview. Weiss said he will foliate his nvention to the American Teople. The springs are used primar- ily in fractures in the thoracic and lumbar areas that is, be- low tile neck. They are attached to two vertebrae above the fractured vertebra and two below, pulling them together so that the frac- ture is held in place. Weiss said the surgery for implantation of the springs is! simple and that no special beds are required for the patients afterward. The surgeon said that 15 patients with paraplegia result- ing from lower spinal injury were able to walk with mechan- ical aids within three months, a result not previously obtained with other treatments.
