Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 4, 1971 Tributes still pour in for discovery of insulin TORONTO (CP) It was 50 years ago that two young To- ronto scientists made Ihcir life- saving discovery of insulin, bill the tributes still are pouring in. Before Dr. Charles II. Best and Dr. Frederick Banting iso- lated Ihe hormone, diabetics had two choices. They could die quickly of lire disease or slowly starve themselves to death. An estimated 30 million rely on insulin now. New retail outlet for oil firm TORONTO (CP) Shell Can- ada Ltd. and Bread Basket In- ternational Ltd. announced a joint agreement lo operate a new type of retail outlet, selling belli gasoline and convenience foods. An outlet, to bo opened here by mid-September, will be the first of at least five "currently on the s.iid a Shell spokesman. A control panel, at each gaso- line pump, will allow motorists to order about 100 as bread and push- ing a button. The order is re-corded at the pay booth, where an attendant fills and packages the order. The company said it expects to have 15 outlets in operation in Ontario by next year, most at existing Shell service station sites. FISH FROM POLES Dr. Banting was killed in a plane crash in Newfoundland in 1041 while conducting biological warfare research with the aii fp.i-ce, but Dr. Best is very mucli alive. A tanned and healthy 72, he is the principal figure in a year- round celebration marking the 501 h anniversary of insulin. Earlier this summer he went to Brazil to lecture in Rio de Ja- neiro and Sno Paulo and receive a award from the scien- tists of that country. Tliis fall, he will receive hon- orary degrees from the univer- sities in Sudbury, Ottawa and Waterloo, OnL, and be in the spotlight during a three-day cel- ebration in October at the Uni- versity of Toronto. In the final week of October, designated Canadian Diabetes Week, he will receive a Gaird- ner Foundation award, named after the late Oakville, Ont., [in-, ancier, James A. Gairdner, and given in recognition of medical research. On Dec. 16, he will in- vested with the Companion of Honor by the Queen in London. He will leave for Israe] three days later to receive an honor- ary degree from the university in Jerusalem. "A busy and exciting Dr. Best commented in a recent interview pnor to his departure for Brazil. He reminisced about that memorable summer 50 years ago when he was 22 and Dr. Banting 29. They were working in a messy, small laboratory at the University of Toronto, trying to cure diabetic dogs with substances taken from the pancreas of other dogs. Early results were unsuccessful and Dr. Banting was forced lo sell his car to keep the two in funds. Then in July, 1921, a diabetic "By the middle of August we had repealed the experiment several Umes and were sure we coiiid do it Dr. Bc-si recalled. In January, 1922, insulin was first given to a Leon- ard Thompson, a dying 11-ycac old Toronto boy. lie lived for years before suffering ratal in juries in a motorcycle accidonl Harry Diamond, n 46-ycar-ol( Toronto lawyer, was given msii lin at about the same time lie had been living on boiled tables and weighed only flQ pounds. But the insulin worked he regained his health and until age 79. Insulin, produced in certain cells in the pancreas, controls sugar in the blood. In 1923, Dr. Banting and Dr, J. R. MacLeod, then hoar! nf Ihe university's department of phy- siology, were given the Ni prize for the discovery. Dr Bfinting shared Ihe prize will' Dr. Best while Dr. MacLeod said he won Ihe prize not for Ihc "discovery of insulin, but for my discovery of Best." Neither Dr. Banting nor Dr. Best, director emeritus of iJie Banting and Best department 01 medical research al. lie Univer- sity of Toronto, made much money from their discovery They turned the rights to insulin over to the university.

"It's so easy lo persuade oneself that what one does not like personally is harmful." an article in the magazine says. It quotes a Danish study which concludes that of people in Copenhagen who sought hearing aids in the last 19 years, not a single case of deafness could be attributed to rock music. Alan Wood, a representative of the musician's federation offers some figures of his own. "We have 1.200 yoimgstesr in our Toronto schools all playing he said. "Not one of them has complained of a hearing loss or deafness "If any of our fellows were in trouble, we'd hear about it covered by disabil- ity insurance."
