"Have any of your children got fears, do they have temper tantrums or nervous habits? More district on Page 9 John Jackson was named to act as chairman. Mr. Jackson was recently named to the commission. Other members present were: John Olyslager, town councillor; Mrs. Mary Good- reau, Cpl. Stuart Shearer, RCMP, and Mayor J. Teran. Mrs. Patricia Hammond was secretary. Among items of business on the agenda were those of the motor cycle problem, liquor control, a traffic light at the junction of Main St. and High- way 6, traffic signs, NSF cheques, traffic control, jay walking and firearms. In August 78 complaints were investigated by HCMP staff members; eight criminal code charges preferred, two impair- ed driving charges; 10S intoxi- cation arrests; 14 liquor control act charges; anrl 28 highway traffic act charges of which eight involved excessive noise of motor hikes. The date of future meetings of the commission was set at the second Monday in each month at 10 a.m. In the event of a holiday falling on that day the session will be postponed one week. The techniques for replacing diseased arteries with new ones grown by the patient himself is relatively new. It was developed by Dr. Charles H. Sparks of Portland. Many changes have occurred in the methods used. Mr. Naglins has been with the project since shortly after It started in 1968. He worked with knit mechan- ics to develop special cylinders for the knitting machine which would allow it to produce the correct size of tubing to meet various diameter requirements for different patients. The thread is fine and the stitch close. He had to develop attach ments which regulate speed and provide even texture. In the flatbed kmlling area of Jantzen's Portland, Ore., plant is a room-within-a-rootn. Set like a jewel on a pedestal behind two glass doors is a shiny W i 1 d. m a n Shouldaire knitting machine. It produces the world's entire supply of knitled Dacron tub- ing for artery grafts. The air is filtered, an even temperature maintained. Dacron V-15 weight thread is especially ordered without chemicals or wax, lo make as pure a product as possible. The narrow tubing ordered as needed, by length, and goes from Jantzen to a pilling com- pany where it receives a flex- ible silicone casing to give it the necessary rigidity. The unit is then sterilized and packaged for surgical use. Dr. Sparks holds patents on the technique and the tubing. The process itself is still con- sidered a research project 'even though 18 patients have so far benefitted from the surgery. The original concept involved Dacron tubing encased in metal and. implanted in the patient's chest "wall. Now Dr. Sparks -uses the flexible silicone with a double layer of the knit tubing inside. It is implanted in the patient's leg and remains there until tis- sue has grown in, around and through the Dacron web. The outer lube is then re- moved and the new length of artery is ready for use. By means of this radical new technique, human beings can now grow new arteries in their bodies to replace those that arc diseased. FIRST PATIENT The first human being in his- tory to grow his own new arte- ries is Herb Mason, 55, an auto- motive parts dealer of Aurora, Ore. In 1963, Ihe technique was used to replace a diseased ves- sel in his left leg. Later a new artery was grown in his right and working. A while ago I stood on my legs 12 to 14 hours a day." Dr. Sparks has furnished hundreds of surgeons through- out the country with instruc- tions on the technique. Dr. Sparks' method is to in- sert a thin of silicone, covered with dacrbn, into the patient's body, usually in the lo- cation where a new artery is needed, often in a leg. The body then grows its own tissue around the cylinder, ad- hering to the dacron. The pro- cess takes five to eight weeks. Dr. Sparks then withdraws the silicone cylinder, leaving a hollow tube of new tissue the new artery. He connects it at ends with the rest of the blood vessel and blood pumps through it. The segment of old, useless artery is bypassed and left in place. Vilnis Naglins was born in Latvia and left there to live in Germany when about 12. He is now head knitter for Jantzen Die. TABER (HNS) Ivan _B. Wright has "bought out" the in- terest of Peter Peters in Pe- ters and Wright Home Furth- ers Ltd., dissolving an eight- year partnership in a thriving furniture business here. Mr. Peetrs will continue in business as Peters Home Har- mony Centre in the firm's orig- inal location in the old Smith and Wood building on 53rd St., used recently for furniture stor- age. tigations with the remainder of the committee could be carried out. Thus all will be informed on the various committees. Tenders for paving a section on the soulh hill will be ad- vertised. Councillors were in agree- ment that Plains-Western Gas and Electric should ask for ap- proval before digging holes for extension of gas lines. The municipal inspector's re- port showing cash record main- tenance were verified correct. Minutes were prepared in an adequate manner, office pro- cedure up to dale. Tha town is in good operating con- dition showing marked im- provement. The assessment tax roll was meeting the governing statutes. The inspector's report will read at the annual meeting. Lutz Plumbing's quote of on the dry chemical fire ex- tinguisher, for the arena, was accepted. Several businesses will be notified lo clean up areas of unsightly buildings and gar- bage. leg. "I'm doing extremely he said after the operation. "I could have lost my right leg but Environment week set COALDALE (HNS) The week of Oct. 8 to 14 has been declared C a n a dian Environ- ment Week. town council was In- formed of this by Environment Minister W. J. Yurko. Mr. Yurko stated: "As Al- fa ertans, we can be proud of our environment, yet at the same time we cannot sit back. I feel very strongly that, in or- der to protect what we have, and to improve what needs im- proving, we must instill in the people of our province a sense of environmental awareness which will become evident in now lam walking, standing I their work and living habits." He is married to Mr. and Mrs. W. R. McMullen's daugh- ter Nepma and they have one little girl, Lisa. Dr. Sparks first approached Walt Koch with' his knitting problem in 1968. He w a s then using a woven tubing-but found it apt to part between the threads, weakening the artery wall. Harold Purcell worked on the problem first but shortly there- after the flatbed machines were moved inlo another area and Vilnis Naglins, knitting techni- cian, took over. He has been with the project ever since. There isn't an enormous mar- ket for lliis product The first public demonstra- tion of the method was given at a scientific exhibit in Atlantic City, N.J. as recently as Octo- ber, 1971. However, when there is a call, the small room is ac- tivated and the refurbished ma- chine hums and clicks in its ra- rified atmosphere knitting someone a length of life. Another aspect which Inter- ests Vilnis :s the fact that this machine is over 30 years old and would ordinarily have been scrapped some time ago. Jantzen officials say "we are exceedingly proud to have this man in our organization."

New proposal NATAL (HNS) At the re- ent meeting of the District of Sparwood council, municipal :lerk Miss Loretta Montemurro on u committee meet- ng of council held to review he paving program. The proposal for pavement was submitted to Victoria for approved but was rejected on the basis that it would bring council to the limit of Its bor- power. Council held a committee meeting with Underwood, Mc- Lellan and Associates Limited, consulting engineers, to deter- mine ways to trim the cost of the project. The resulting pro- posal trimmed the cost by ap- proximately one third. Tlie cost savings were achieved by elimination of curbs gutters in mosl areas, and by narrowing the width of the pavement. The new proposal will be ad vcrtised. students PINCHER CREEK (Special Creek School Divi sion No. 29 has students This is a slight drop from las1 year, mainly indicated in thi senior levels al Pincher Creek'.1 high school.

Butte PICTURE BUTTE (IINS) At the recent meeting of hte Picture Butte town council, a thorough study and discussion took place on the additional water-filter and back-wash pip- ing system report from the con- sulting engineers. It was d e c i d e d to get the blue-prints ot the fill oration and piping systems for a closer look. It was suggested the public be informed for the reasons for installing a sidewalk on the south side of Jamieson Ave. The reason: it resulted in a saving of a running foot to have the sidewalk rather than a curb. The town's 1961 half-ton was sold for It was not needed any more. It was decided that the water and sewer rales, for those con- nected to the town's system, will be doubled Jan. 1, 1973. Gary B a h 1 e r will be placed on the permanent staff of the town and will receive the in- surance plan. The recreation committee will send a letter of thanks to Miss Sherry! DeCoste for the job she did this past summer as the supervisor at the swim- ming pool.

Councillors were in favor of relief from the educational levy given on the entire farm, as opposed to the home parcel but felt a limit of the first of assessment should be set. It was felt that all residences should be assessed regardless of location whether urban or rural so that more uniform re- lief could be obtained if In 1973 :he education levy is removed from all residential property. However they were not in fa- vor of assessing other farm buildings. It was felt that a pro- duction tax, though difficult to organize would bo acceptable to the farmer who would pay only when he had a successful year. A proposal was suggested that a study could be done to pick up such intensified opera- tions as feed lots which often have small acreages and little or no improvements, and there- fore under the present system do not contribute their share of taxes. Council was unanimous in its agreement that equalization is necessary and no change should be made in present pro- grams of grants to munciipali- lies. the town can go ahead with the third portion of the rink. The town will also purchase five more Christmas decora- tions this year for street lights.
