Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 42 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, October 77, 1971 Major enemy of early life OAK ISLAND TREASURE HUNT A group of determined businessmen beleive they are coming lo the end of a long search and when it's over they hope Oak Island in Mahone Bay 45 miles west of Halifax, will have secrets no longer. At least six men have died trying to discover Oak Island's secret. Four of them were asphyxiated in 1965 when carbon monoxide fumes got to workmen in a tunnel.

To him they are natu- rally mischievous. He also says most chil- dren's films today arc not children are demanding. Children's movies are, to him, typified by Walt Disney- type productions which "al- ways show a kid being polite to his father and never doing anything wrong." Mr. Gosselm decided that his first attempt at procuring a children's Martien rie Noel, The Christmas Mar- present an ideal opportunity to try to change that stereotype. The 37-year-old native of Drummondville, Que., joined the National Film Board in 195fi after graduating from the Montreal Graphic Arts School. Since 1962, he has been in- volved in directing and later producing a variety of 30 films.

AT MOSCOW Le Martien de Noel, already showing in Montreal, will be released in France later this year. Shown as a special at the Moscow International Film Festival in July, the film, according to the Cana- dian representatives there, was "extremely successful and well-liked by the chil- dren." The story covers the adven- tures of two Quebec youngs- ters, Francois and his vounger sister, Katou, who, on their Christmas holidays, meet a Martian and help him fix his broken flying saucer. The three mischief-makers stir up the village and its two policemen as they go about the task of getting tilings for the spaceship and introducing the Martian to the earth and snow. Most of the actors are fa- miliar fares from French-Ca- nadian films, television and theatre such as Marcel Sa- bourin who plays the Martian. But Mr. Gosselin dcc'ded he wanted to work with children he knew well. He chose his own son Francois, in, to play Francois ami Catherine a, the daughter of a good friend, to be Katou. Mr. Gossclin says he was most impressed with the chil- dren's work in the color movie, shot in April, 1970, on location at SI. Melanio, near Jolictte, about fit) north of Montreal. Dt'HBEn SOVNT1 TRACK Francois and Catherine had In capture Ih" atmosphere of the outdoor filming as fhcy sat in a a month later spending hours dubbing in the sound track because Ihe origi- nal had been too noisy.

One of the great cripplers-cerebral palsy By FRANK CAREY LA JOLLA, OaJlf. (AP) At ttw University of cam put here, nMcrcher studies gestation period of a variety of At the university's Berkeley campn update, another scien- tist explores the effect of air and water pollution on unborn infante. Both work toward preventing cerebral palsy, the nippier caused by brim or other nerv- ous system damage before birth, it deSvery or early ta life. Matched against the other great cripplerf-trthritii, cere- bral phy. stroke, muscular dystro- multiple bral palsy b the major enemy of early life. No known cure exists for cer- ebral palsy, nor a known drug or other treatment to attack di- rectly the disease process and reverse significantly its toll. Bu an Associated Press sur- vey shows that scientists lately have developed new, though guarded, optimism that they may be on the trail toward eventually preventing a signifi- cant number of cerebral palsy Prime indicator of cerebral palsy is absent or impaired con- trol of the body's voluntary Smoking disease death scale up OTTAWA (CP) Cigarette- caused disease hac reached the death Malt of tuberculosis and cholera at their heights, ays Dr. Charles Fletcher, chairman of the British Royal College of Physicians' committee on smok- ing. "In the 84 to M, it Is earning about a third of all the deaths in Britain and I under- stand it is much the same here." This epidemic of heart and lung disease will be far harder to curb than tuberculosis or cholera end, in the end, will be far more costly, Dr. Fletcher said in an interview Monday. "TtaM diseases were con- trolled by antibiotla and sanita- tion, but with smoking disease it requires individual action." Dr. Fletcher is in Canada oh medical school and hospital tour sponsored by the Canadian Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association to explain the British findings. The British study led to a gov- ernment requirementofa health-hatard warning on ciga- rette packages and in ing, and a commitment from Prime Minister Edward Heath to find other steps to curb smoking. PRAISES AD BAN He praised tin Canadian gov- ernment'i mti-smoklng legisla- tion, now before Parliament, for including a bui on cigarette ad- vertising. Dr. Fletcher coiled for more research into wayi to help peo- ple stop smoking and into pro- duction of safer cigarettes moldng. T and were grossly neglected areas of research. By modifying the tobacco, be said, it should be possible in five years to cut the risk by 80 per cent, and manufacturers should be prepared to invest million a year in such "a piddling amount in relation to their profits." Dr. Fletcher said hospitals can help those who want to stop smoking. There should be a place where patients can quit during a hospital stay without the constant temptation of the presence of other smokers. And every hospital should have a smoking withdrawal clinic to conduct research and offer help in ways to stop or cut down smoking. Dr. Fletcher has visited Dal- housie University, Halifax; McGill University, Montreal; and the University of Ottawa. He now heads for the University of Toronto; University of West- ern Ontario, London; and Me- Master University, Hamilton. NAME-CALLING WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) The Navajo Tribal Council has decided to change the name of a town on the reservation from Cheechilgeetho to Chi- Ch'Il-Tah. Councilman Ed Begay said the town name origi- nally was spelled by a non-Na- vajo, who meant "in the Oak Tree." But Cheechilgeetho sounds something like the Na- rajo name for the rear end of a horse. CM-Ch'11-Tah, on other hand, conforms to safer ways of smoking. These original meaning. muscles such as those that move the legs and arms. SEIZURES A SIGN Others signs include convul- sive seizures, spasms, mental retardation, abnormal sensation and perception, and impairment of sight, hearing and speech. At least people in the U.S. and Canada, and possibly as many as one million, are vic- tims of cerebral palsy. Of the known total, more than sufferers are under 21 and at least babies are born with it annually. While cerebral palsy strikes early, most of its victims live normal life spans although some are confined to wheel chairs or jeds or crutches. The cause in about one third of cerebral palsy cases Is mi- mown, but of those known, the chief culprits are prematurity, difficulty of breathing in the newborn and complications in labor and delivery. Another is jaundice in the newborn result- ing from RH factor or other blood incompatibility between mother and embryo. Major emphasis in research programs sponsored by govern- ment and voluntary health agencies is on prevention, STUDY EARLY BIRTH That's where the researchers at UC's La Jolla and Berkely campuses come in. Dr. Kenneth J. Ryan, an ob- stetrician at La Jolla is per- haps the leading developer of the theory that many premature births might be prevented if ways could be found to control artificially and maintain the vital hormonal relationship in the womb between mother and embryo. Dr. Ryan believes the rela- tionship may play a key role in preserving the normal gestational period of humans. So he has been exploring the gestation period of rats, mon- keys, armadillos, sows and hed- gehogs. At Berkeley, Dr. Eddie Wei, an environmental health psy- ciologist, is attempting to deter- mine whether low doses of met- als present in the environment, such as lead, mercury and man- ganese, migh cause prenatal or post-birth nervous system dis- eases. Dr. Wei stresses that no one knows yet whether a nervous system hazard exists from low doses of such metals. HIGH DOSES HARM But he adds that high doses of the metals can be harmful. As an example, lie noted the men- tal retardation of some slum children struck by lead poison- ing after nibbling chips of lead- based paint peeling from walls. Research gains in battle against cerebral palsy include development of: A highly effective raccine against German measles, a usually mild disease but one that can cause cerebral palsy or other congenital defects In an unborn child If the mother gets it during the first three, and sometimes during the sec- ond three, months of preg- nancy. A serum which promises to prevent many cases of cere- bral palsy caused by the RH blood factor incompatibility be- tween mother and fetus. If given within 72 hours of de- livery or miscarriage of an RH-Ffisitive baby by an RH- negativi mother, the serum can the mother's next baby from posrible UK-conflict cerebral palsy. A technique for giving so- called exchange blood transfu- sions to newborn babies threat- ened with cerebral palsy or certain other defects due to other forms of in- compatibilities.
