Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2-1 HE LETHBRIDQE September Doctors separate Siamese twins in 6-hour operation PHILADELPHIA (AP) Separated by surgery which took 6V2 hours, Siamese twin girls from the Dominican Republic slept in separate cribs for the first time in their 13 months of life. "I know of no reason why they won't live." Dr. C. Everett Koop said after the long operation carried out Wednesday by 23 surgeons and nurses at Children's Hospital. "They were two healthy lit- tle girls together; we have every reason to believe they'll be two healthy little girls apart." said Dr. Koop, who headed the surgical team. Lawyer-client relationship protected TORONTO (CP) An On- tario Supreme Court Judge has ruled that the privileged relationship between a lawyer and client takes precedence over powers of the federal Combines Investigation Branch. Mr. Justice Samuel Hughes dismissed with costs an application by the director of investigation and research the head of the combines branch for a legal opinion given Shell Canada Ltd. by its lawyer. The order would have allow- ed the director to order a policeman to enter Shell premises and seize the letter. Lawyer J. J- Robinette who acted for Shell..said Wednes- day there is "nothing sinister at all" about the case. He said it was argued as a matter of principle to see "whether a lawyer's advice to a client can be protected." Mr. Robinette said it was for protection of clients, not lawyers. There were no details available as to why the com- bines investigation branch wanted the letter. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phone 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL He said not only are both girls expected to live, but that they should lead normal lives and even bear their own chil- dren. Clara and Altagracia Rodri- guez, who had been joined since birth at the pelvis and abdomen, were given their own complete sets of internal organs during the surgical operation. In the initial recovery stage, Clara and Altagracia were placed in two beds, but they will be treated in the same bed later to prevent possible psychological trauma resulting from separation after living as one being up un- til now, hospital spokesman Shirley Bonnem said. Farida Rodriguez.and her twins came here 11 days ago from a farm outside Santo Do- mingo. When her daughters were born Aug. Mrs. Rodriguez said she was told they would die. Other doctors told her they would live into adulthood but could never be separated. But Mrs. Rodriguez's cousin worked for an American woman in Puerto Rico, who told her sister in Pennsylvania about the Siamese twins. Dianna Zimnoch of Warrington, Pa., arranged for the operation and her church raised the funds. Mrs. Rodriguez, whose husband re- mained at home, has three other children. In the operation, doctors di- vided the girls' joint liver, po.ssible because both had separate blood supplies to the organ. Their crossed ureters were sorted out to empty into the correct bladders from the kidneys. Before the operation, the girls shared a single, circular hip structure. Both had incomplete, C-shaped pelvises rather than closed circles. Altagracaa's was broken to form it into the proper shape. Doctors will operate again on Clara in a few weeks to shape her pelvis and place her hip joints correctly. Mrs. Bonnem said each twin weighs about 13 pounds, about six pounds less than normal one-year-old babies. The hospital said medical case histories show only 24 successful Siamese twin separations, with the first recorded in 1600.

Nixon's health may stall coverup trial WASHINGTON (AP) Former president Richar Nix- on's health has been injected into the coming Watergate cover-up trial for the first time. Lawyers for John Ehrlichman asked Wednesday for a 60-to 90day delay in the trial, set to begin Oct. 1.

Ehrlichman's subpoena for Nixon's testimony was deliv- ered to Nixon's San Clemente, Calif., estate by a U.S. marshal a few weeks after Nixon resigned as president but before there were widespread reports about Nix- on's failing health. The trial of Ehrlichman and five co-defendants is expected to last about three months, but there has been no indication when Nixon might be called to testify. In their motion, Ehrlichman's lawyers said Nixon's "personal appearance at trial is indispensable to Mr. Ehrlichman's defence." Meanwhile, all defence and prosecution lawyers in the case met Wednesday. Sources said a snag developed which may further complicate the trial and which may prevent 33 White House tapes from be- ing used as evidence in the trial. Many of the recordings are of conversations Nixon had with defendants in the case, and they are considered crucial to the prosecutor's case.

MONTREAL (CP) Canada is studying methods of launching communication satellites to provide "safe and efficient service" for the North Atlantic region, Tran- sport Minister Jean Marchand said Wednesday night. Mr. Marchand told the an- nual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) the current ultra high-frequency system used by most airlines is not "If we have to have an ef- ficient communications system on the North Atlantic which will be foolproof and safe to deal with the forecasted swifter and increased traffic, then we shall have to go into satellites." Mr. Marchand said one way to solve the "peaking prob- many planes arriv- ing at airports to have staggered arrivals and depar- tures.

E0 CONRAD OEHAHO SWITM f u IPLETTCU. By JEFF CARRITHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Argentina has formally assured Canada that a Candu nuclear power reactor recently purchased from Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. would not be used in fabricating nuclear devices for even "peaceful" explosive uses, the external affairs de- partment confirmed Wednes- day The assurances, believed to he in JJhc form of a written bi- lateral agreement on peaceful nuclear devices and ex- plosions, signed by Argentina and Canada recently, are in addition to already-stringent International Atomic Energy Agency nucJear safeguards routinely negotiated when Canada or the U.S. sells a reactor to another country Until very recently, Argen- tina had balked at agreeing to the extra bilateral safeguards, in part on the basis that it wasn't called for in the nuclear reactor sale contract signed late last year with the AECL for the 600-megawaU nuclear power reactor. Canada, embarrassed by In-" dia's use of a Canadian reac- tor in making a "peaceful" nuclear device exploded this summer, was prepared to cancel the Argentina nuclear sale unless the extra safeguards were accpeted. to prevent a repeat ol the India situation. The external affairs spokes- man in the department's press office refused to divulge either the form or the contents of the nuclear safeguards agreement between Canada and Argen- tina He admitted that the assur- ances, given very recently, do meet Canada's requirements and that they are designed to ensure Argentina does not use either the Canadian-supplied Candu reactor or material from it to make even a "peaceful" nuclear device. But he said he could not pro- vide any specific information until Canada and Argentina apree to make more informa- tion public, "out of courtesy to Argentina Canadian nuclear experts, following the detonation of the Indian "peaceful" nuclear device, concluded that traditional IAEA inter- national nuclear safeguards were not tough enough to pre- vent a country which had not signed the Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty from building a nuclear device which it termed was for "peaceful uses only."
