Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 LCTHIRIDQE HERALD -Monday, April I, 1074 Calgary women start fund for farm wife CALGARY (CP) Calgary's local Council of Women has started a fund drive to help pay the legal fees of a 'woman who fought and lost her attempt to get a half interest in a farm during a recent marriage separation case. Irene Murdoch, now living at Turner Valley, lost her case in the Supreme Court of Canada to get an equal share in a farm where she and her husband worked. Although Mrs. Murdoch worked on the farm for 25 years, courts ruled that she "made only the normal contribution to the farm that most farm or ranch wives make." She now lives on her husband's support payments. Council president Joni Chorny told members that by contributing to the fund, women in Alberta have a practical way of supporting a woman who they feel has been unfairly dealt with. Patricia Krasinski, who introduced the motion, said the fund will help relieve Mrs. Murdoch "of an unjust debt." "It also thanks Mrs. Murdoch for her courage and Italian designers offer sexy knits FLORENCE (AP) designers have come up with sexy knits for the evening and tweedy knits for the office. Trico, a Roman house, obviously believes the closer the knit to the body the better. As the fall winter ready-to- wear show came to a close last week at the Pitti Palace, Trico featured some of the sexiest evening dresses of the season. "Trice's long gowns of textured knit clung to the body like crepe. Their back bearing halter tops draped over the bosoms tightly and were usually slashed to the waist. Noni of Milan captured the tweedy look, an oatmeal colored knit with cardigans with white mohair sleeves. Albertina, also thinking tweed, did bulky coats in a pepper-and-salt pattern and gave them heavy hand-knit black borders. Gibi also liked tweed, but in moderate doses. His sports collection was based on Pompeian red. Calendar Xi Nu Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi, will meet at p.m. Tuesday at the home of Mary Hall, 3306 Lakeridge Road.

She termed the fund as a "token of disapproval of the way the law has been interpreted by the Supreme Court of Canada." "If every woman in Calgary contributes we should be able to help pay Mrs. Murdoch's legal Mrs. Chorny said. Homemaker By BARBARA L. MYTROEN District Home Economist in training Well, since spring is about to spring, maybe some of you are starting to think about that dreadful chore of spring cleaning or maybe I shouldn't be reminding you of it, but here are some tips to hopefully ease the job a little. To clean windows use one quarter cup ammonia to each gallon of warm water. Add a small amount of detergent if there is any amount of soil, grease, or smoke on the window. Clean the windows using up and down strokes on the inside and crosswise strokes on the outside. Then if any area has been missed one can tell which side needs polishing. Rub black heel marks with liquid polishing wax and fine steel wool. To clean shower curtains soak in warm water with ammonia, then add detergent and wash. Add ammonia to the first rinse, then rinse in clear water. To remove wallpaper mix together one teaspoon saltpeter, and one gallon hot water. Brush paper with this, and allow it to stand before removing. To remove furniture marks from a rug lay a damp cloth on the indentations in the carpet and go over it with a warm iron. Before the rug is thoroughly dry, brush vigorously to raise the pile. Use a mild solution of vinegar and water to clean dirty or yellow piano keys. Dust heavy drapes when you clean the room, using a hand vacuum or the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner. Lacking these, use a brush of medium stiffness. Work from the top of the drape down. Regular dusting will stretch the time between cleaning and keep your house from smelling like a sneeze. To remove pencil stains an eraser may do the trick, but it the stain is stubborn, put a few drops of ammonia on it, follow with detergent, and repeat until the stain is gone. 1 RUMMAGE SALE St. Andrew's Church Hall 1818-5ttlAw.Soylh Wednesday, April 10th, p.m. More VD reported in Alberta Being babied EDMONTON (CP) New cases of venereal disease reported in Alberta increased in 1972-73, but health officials are not sure if it was due to better reporting techniques or whether more people are catching syphlis and gonorrhea. The health and social development department's annual report tabled in the legislature Friday showed new cases of gonorrhea, up from the previous year. There were 143 cases of syphilis, an increase of 16. The increase in syphilis was attributed to homosexual activity and .the availability of new specific tests. Homosexuals accounted for about 25 per cent of the increase. You can't convince Peanut that dogs are running around unleashed and that the canine population of Hamilton is getting out of control. Peanut is a puppy owned by Tracy Routledge, 8, and her sister Tammy, 5, and he's getting as much attention as the girls' dolls. The Hamilton SPCA told the board of control that it was unhappy with the dog situation in the city and said it wanted heavier fines to get action from the public. -Jackpot In 51 Numbers 4th-8th-1Zth Doubled In 7 Nuitilwrt or FrM and darim, 2St pur Card.

For nearly a year, five physicians have been putting overweight patients on a 500 calorie a day diet and 40 daily shots of chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone extracted from the urine of pregnant women. The treatment is .highly praised by its adherents but has caused some controversy among the medical profession. Dr. Martin Atkinson, president of the Calgary Medical Society, said there is no proof that the shots are responsible for weight loss. "The dosages they are prescribing are miniscule and really do he said in an.interview. "I think it is the diet plus the psychological effect of the daily shot that is causing people to lose weight. "To some people it's an impressive procedure. It doesn't seem to be doing1 any harm so who's going to knock What does bother Dr. Atkinson is the cost to the Alberta Health Insurance Commission of the treatment: "one doctor is putting through almost 400 people a day at just over a shot. "That's all he does, and medicare foots the bill." In addition to the cost of daily shots, the patient must pay to begin the treatment. A city general' practitioner who now confined his practice to hormone treatment said the cost conies to no more than the cost of one day in hospital. "Twenty to 30 people I have treated have already, been in hospital to lose said the doctor, who preferred not to be identified: "Others would have to have surgery if they did not do something about their weight "Obesity is a very dangerous condition and it affects 40 per cent of the population. When you reduce weight, your life expectancy is increased. So why all the fuss about paying The doctor did not dispute the fact that much of the treatment was psychological: PUBLIC BINQO 18 GAMES BLACKOUT Until Wen) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upitilra) EVERY THURS.-8 p.m. BINGO Won., April 8th ALARM BINQO" 11 GoM Piy Doubto IS Door Ottwr Eitrm) Regular or 5 tor No children umtor 16 illmnd.
