Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 4, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta CURTAILMENT oi the city's bus service is going to cause havoc in quite a number of areas. While ap- parently unable to remain on an operating budget at the present hours, transportation is still a necessary part of the workaday world. The Sunday schedule, for instance, may not hit a great many people, but those it will hit are church goers both for regular services and early masses. Jiutead of running 9 a.m. to 12 midnight the new schedule will be in operation from noon to p.m. Buses will close early as well at 10 p.m. instead of midnight. We can't help but wonder how many employers will feel the effects of this 10 p.m. move. Under the Alberta Labor Act, a female employee is prohibited from commencing or ending a shift dur- ing the hours of and 6 a.m. unless the employ- er provides safe transportation to her home. Up until the hours of 12 midnight a female em- pioyee could catch the city transit system. Now witn buses out at 10, there is a little gap of two hoursr in which the employee must take a taxi or walk. Not employee drives and not every family has two cars to spare an extra, vehicle. H seems that while tlje service was not a paying proposition it was needed by those who used it. A10 p m. closing is going to affect those attending movies and local productions downtown. It's going to affect kids at sports-and dances who depend on catching that last bus. it's the old story of money versus service. Tax- payers will be saved Well perhaps thai s what Lethbridge taxpayer wants. To be saved money. Service and the cost of the tax dollar Walking is good for one, that's true, but when you have five young punks attacking an old man in the. downtown area, women are not going to want to walk the streets to their outlying homes.- If you wake up one morning to find one of your little ones in spots, don't panic, it may not be German measles. There's an epidemic of eurythema mfectio- sum travelling around, and that's all it is .It vou'd'prefer the easier name it's Fiftn Disease 'which means there are five types of measles and this is the fifth one. It's very mild, some itching mostly affects children two to 12, contagious but there s no Quarantine even for the child who has it. This should "be a relief to mothers who were throwing their offspring out each day of the holidays 'to soak up the sun (and spread out the noise a bit) to know no one has to be confined to quarters. Eurythema infectiosum resembles a flush on tne 'cheeks, slightly raised areas which will spread to the leaving a lacy effect when the rash subsides No treatment and no laboratory tests required, says my friendly medical practitioner. With all the meetings in town this weekend, do :you suppose we could get the Flying to the Pollution of the Southern Regional or is it the other way 'round? Since the favorite guessing game of the week hap- pens to be the Academy winners, here s an- -other calculated choice. __ We'll put our money on Jane Fonda in They WIOOT and we hope-the movie runs away with the prizes. It's exhausting, often depressing, but its impact is astounding because it's so real.__________ 1VDP Silences Women With Social Credit Ruling VICTORIA (CP) -British Columbia's time women cabi- net niaisters wufch't a vert k Thursday as the teg- their estimates.

One dessert product which was purchased in a local super- market Thursday carried the following' on tbe back of the package "contains sodium cy- damate and saccharin. Non-nu- tritive artificial sweeteners. Supplies 312 cakriea per 100 gms." The Canadian ban followed on the heels of the U.S. health sec- retary Robert H. Finch's order to remove all foods and drinks containing cyciamafes from food markets by Feb. 1. Laboratory tests showed blad- der cancer developed in rats fed large amounts of cycla- mates. The ban was ordered even though there was no evi- dence at that time that cycla- mates had caused cancer in hu mans. A step by step phajing-oul of products containing cycla- males was to have started in Canada Nov. 30 with diet sof drink; and drinks which are mixed with cyciamafes. This date was later extended to Dec 24 due to government error. Both the U.S. and Canadian health departments took a hart line with cyclamales initially but softened the effects of the new legislation (or the American cyclamale in d u s t r y and soft- drink industry in Canada. It's been estimated that worth'o( diet drink stock has been poured down the Ca- nadian drain since the ruling went info effect, plus an esti- mated spent on new advertising, labelling and pack- aging. U.S. authorities on Nov. 20 said the sale of foods and su- gar substitutes containing the sweetener would be allowed as long as the label shows the cy- clamafe content in an average serving. The department also allowed powder, tablet and liquid sweet- eners to remain (w sale to the public.
