Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 300 Moved As Train Burns FARMERS, Ky. (AP) Tlie 300 residents of this northeast Kentucky town have been evac- uated until a freight train fire started by a derailment burns itself out. The accident Sunday ignited a tank car carrying gallons of petroleum, destroyed several box cars and threatened to spread to four more tank cars. As the blaze threatened to en gulf the remaining cars, fire- men sad state police ordered the 300 residents to move out.

NATO To Define .Guidelines BRUSSELS (Reuter) De- fence ministers from eight NATO countries will begin a two-day meeting in Ottawa Thursday to define guidelines for the use of nuclear weapons by the alliance. The ministers, who form NATO's nuclear planning group, will meet under the chairman- ship of NATO Secretary-General Manlio Brosio, it was officially announced here today. The nuclear planning group was set up in 196C and holds meetings twice a year. The United States, Britain, Italy and West Germany are permanenl members of the group, and other nations in the 15-member alliance alternate as members every 18 months. For this week's session, de- fence ministers from Canada, Greece, The Netherlands and Norway also will participate. Professor Wins Nobel Prize STOCKHOLM (AP) Prof. Paul A. Samuelson of Massa- chusetts Institute of Technology was awarded the 1970 Nobel Prize in economics today. The prize committee said he "has done more than any other con- temporary economist to raise the level of scientific analysis in economic teory." The award was created last year by the Swedish Central Bank. Like the traditional Nobel prizes, it is worth The 55-year-old professor was honored for the "scientific work through which he has developed static and dynamic economic theory and actively contributed to raising the level of analysis in economic the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in its citation. Arabs Set For Liberation War CAIRO (Reuter) Egypt is ready to go into battle to fiber- ate Israeli-occupied territories and will not be satisfied with' the old war of attrition along the Suez canal if. the current ceasefire breaks down, a Cairo news magazine said today. The weekly Rose el Youssef said a military clash with Israel is inevitable unless the Israelis change their stand. Citing "highest level" mili- tary sources, the newspaper said: "The efficiency of Egypt's forces in continuing the war of attrition are no longer the basis of the high command's calcula- tions. Plans now are based on the ability to embark on the war of liberation and the time it takes." Railway Group Challenges CTC OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Railway Labor Association today challenged the Canadian transport commission's right to hold public hearings on a CP Rail plan to raise fares and re- duce services on its transconti- nental train, the Canadian. J. W. Pickersgill, president of the commission, reserved judg- ment on an application by Marice Wright, CRLA lawyer, to stop the hearings which have already been held in Thunder Bay, Ont., Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary and Vancouver. Mr. Wright argued that the commission has power to hold public hearings on a railway ap- plication to discontinue a pas- senger service. But in this case, he said, the commission had de- cided before hearing evidence that The Canadian should not be discontinued. Its hearing is on ways proposed by the railway company to reduce ils loss. The commission decided last June the transcontinental serv- ice between Montreal and Van- couver, with connecting service to and from Toronto, should be continued under a federal sub- sidy. To cut the cost, CP Rail proposes to reduct the service, now daily, to three trains a week in the winter months. MAY APPEAL Mr. Wright said that if the commission does not support his argument for terminating the hearing, it should state its rea- sons for continuing. He said he might want to apeal the rea- sons to the Supreme Court of Canada. Mr.'Pickersgill said the com- mission would consider Mr. Wright's legal argument 'and give its ruling later, meanwhile continuing the hearing. D. M. Duncan of the Ontario transport department a s k e c that witnesses from Canadian Natioinal Railways be called to testify at the CP Rail hearing He said the Ontario government is concerned that limiting serv- ice on the Canadian might be only the first step towards its abandonment. One of CP Rail's proposals is to raise fares 10 per cent for coach-class tickets and 25 per cent for all-inclusive fares. CP Rail says that if the CNR will do the same on its transconti- nental trains, there should be no reduction in CP Rail patronage. Mr. Duncan says CNR.'s reac- tion to this plan should be be- fore the commision. D. C. Lyons, Toronto's city so- licitor, told the commission his city is concerned about reducing The Canadian service in winter. Such a move might disrupt pub- lic confidence in the viability of the train to such an extent that the whole service would be can- celled. PREMIER STROM Tuttday, Ottober 27, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Vulcan Woman Has Artificial Elboiv CAI.GARY (CP) A new kind of artificial elbow, without hinges and made from a plas- tic-like material, has helped rescue a southern Alberta wo- man from the ranks of the handicapped. The artificial elhow, implant- ed in Mrs. Agnes Degenslein, 55, of Vulcan, 60 miles north- west of Lethbridge, several weeks ago, is made from a material called silastic which provides movement in the joint by flexing of the material. Mrs. Degenstein suffers from multiple joint rheuma- toid arthritis and before her Multiple Use. operation was unable to. use Wilderness Areas To Be Developed CALGARY (CP) Premie Harry Strom said Monday tha resource development will no be banned from all wilderness areas in the province. The government favors mul tiple use of the environment he told a news conference, am although some wildernes areas will be untouched, econo- mic development must proceed "Everyone recognizes the need for more careful regula tion of our -environment, bu where we go astray is in the suggestion that there be a tola stop to development .within cer tain areas o? the province. SIGNED ACT The British North America Act was passed by the Imperial Parliament and signed by Queen Victoria in 18fi7. Healing Substance... Shrinks Piles, Checks Itch Exclusive healing substance proven to shrink hemorrhoids...nnd repair damaged tissue. A renowned research institute has found a unique healing sub- stance with the ability to shrink hemorrhoids painlessly. It re- lieves itching and discomfort in minules and speeds up healing of the injured, inflamed tissues. One hcmorrhoidal case his- tory after another reported "very striking improvement." Pain was promptly and gently relieved... actual reduction or retraction (shrinking) took place. And most improvement was maintained in cases where clinical observations were continued over a period of many months. Furthermore, these tests and observations were made on patients with a wide variety of hcmorrhoidal condi- tions. All this was accomplished with a healing substance (Bio- Dyne) which quickly helps heal injured cells and stimulates growth of new tissue. Bio-Dyne is offered in ointment and supposi- tory form called Preparation H. In addition to actually shrink- ing hemorrhoids, Preparation H lubricates and makes elimina- tion less painful. It helps prevent infection which is a stated cause of hemorrhoids. Just ask your druggist for Preparation H Suppositories or Preparation H Ointment (with a special Satisfaction or your money refunded. Preparation pTl College Tlop TORONTO (CP) Aid. Tony 5'Donohue, in a direct appeal to Hobert Andras, federal minister responsible for housing anc urban affairs, has asked the federal government to take over Toronto's experimental Roch dale College. In an H-page letter, the alder man calls Rochdale "a college of promiscuity, drug-taking an< defiance the law and good government." He describes the IB-storey, itudent-run experimental i n open education "a veritable flop louse." The alderman mailed the let- er following an eight-week itudy. In an interview Sunday, he proposed the building be used as a University of Toronto resi- dence, a home for the aged, for low-rental housing or a "badly- needed" drug addiction treat- ment centre and hospital with research facilities. Rochdale President Peter Turner said the letter made Aid. O'Donohue "a candidate for Vancouver." It was a reference to the harffine stand against hippies taken by Vancouver Mayor Tom Campbell and to the rumor that the alderman intends to enter the Toronto mayoralty race. Mr. Turner said that as far as he knew Aid. O'Donohue had never set foot in the building md so it was not surprising he failed to recognize Rochdale is a "defusing organisation, in- stead of creating radicals." Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp., which is included in Mr. Andras' department, is the holder of a mortgage on the building covering 95 per cent ,of the original cost of approxi- mately million. Return To Life For Princess TOKYO (AP) Princess Suga, youngest daughter of Emperor Hirohito and Em- press Nagako, reported to work as a consultant at an imported goods store today and said she really felt "she returned to life for the first time in years." Mrs. Takako S h i m a z u, wife of an employee of Ja- pan's Export-Import Bank and mother of an eight- year-old .boy, will work three weekday afternoons at a luxury shop owned by a leading Tokyo department store, Seibu. The 31-year-old princess said she no longer is a member of Japan's imperial family. Legally, she lost her imperial- household status with her marriage to Hisan- aga Shimazu, son of the late Count Hisanari Shimazu, March 10, I960. HAS A HUMP The grizzly is the only bear with a hump on its back. "Alberta has come a long way through development of its mineral resources and it will be important for us to give con- sideration to multiple use." The premier said wilderness legislation to be introduced at the next session will make pro- visions for the multiple use of land and untouched reserves. He also indicated a provincial energy board may be formed to make an inventory of energy resources and regulate their use. either of her arms normally. She had difficulty eating, but now handles cutlery well and can perform other tasks. She said her new right elbow has given her arm a wide range of movement and there is no pain or sensation of pressure near the replacement part. The material, developed by Dow-Corning in the United Stales, has been used to re- place damaged knuckles but never before for a joint as large as an elbow. Test machines have flexed some experimental joints made from silastic more than 200 mil- lion times without evidence of failure. NEW REPLACEMENT Dr. W. A. a Cal- gary orthopedic surgeon, said the material is favored as a replacement to metal joints which have hinges and which are not completely satisfactory. Silastic, made from silieones, was relatively cheap, easy to produce and not likely to stim- ulate adverse reactions within the body. The new joints require sev- eral hours to install and involve complete removal of the di- seased joint, he said. The tube-like exposed ends of the bone were trimmed to a shape which exactly matched the artificial joint before the replacement was installed and the incision closed. The ends of the silastic used are covered with a cloth-like material which was "invaded" by bone cells which provided a firm bond to hold the new joint in place. During convalescence, doc- tors could check progress through x-rays. Greene: It's D Nuisance NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) Energy Minister J. J. Gr eene says going through a supermarket with a sub-machine-gun toting soldier "can be rather a novel e x p e r i e n c but being guarded constantly is "a damn nuisance."

Working Parents May Apply For Funds BEGINA (CP) Working parents now may apply to the Saskatchewan welfare depart- ment for funds to help meet costs of sending their children to day care centres.
