Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta vn Further action promised OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min- ister T r u d e a u promiced to consider further action to give women a better break in the public service. He told David Orlikow North) in the Commons that following the re- port of the royal commission on the status of women, the public service commission was in- structed to give women every opportunity for advancement and promotion. Mr. Orlikow said it is not working that way. He called for a "much more active program" of recruiting women into the public service. The prime minister said this .will be considered. He would decide whether other steps are necessary to ensure that the governments aims are carried out. Lincoln Alexander ilton West) said the commis- sion's senior-management train- ing course has attracted only one woman. Mr. Trudeau said there aie other areas of the public service where women have had "remarkable suc- cess." Earlier he told the House the government dislikes "the quota approach' for increasing the percentage of women in govern- ment roles. He was- responding to Opposi- tion Leader Robert Stanfield, who asked whether any signifi- cant changes are planned to raise the number of women in senior positions. Mr. Stanfield quoted Treasury Board President C. M. Drury as saying last weekend that only two per cent of federal jobs paying more than an- nually are held by women. The House was told last week there are 23 women in that category. Monday, however, the num- ber was raised to 24. When Mi- chael Forrestall mouth-Halifax East) asked the question last week, the first re- ply neglected to mention Jean Edmonds, Prairie region direc- tor-general of operations for and immigration.

DAN'S GREENHOUSE EAST OF STOCKYARDS EASTER LUIS EASTER MUMS OPEN GOOD FRIDAY AMD EASTER SUNDAY THE TRADE Birth defects linked to temperature By LAWRENCE K. New York Times Service GENEVA An Australian scientist's animal experiments, More Family pages 6, 7 which produced a w'ide range of serious birth defects by slightly raising the pregnant mother's bodv temperature, have led the World Heath Or- ganization to investigate the implications for human beings. The organization has sponsor- ed further animal experiments in two American laboratories. Its annual report cites the criti- cal need for other investigators to carry forward research that the Australian veterinarian. Dr. M. J. Edwards, has puW'shed in several scientific iournals over the past six years. Birth defects inelud'ng small brain size, severe learning de- fects, growth retardation, loss of vision from cataracts, club foot and other skeletal, muscu- lar and dental deformities were produced in experi- nrcrts by briefly exposing preg- nant guinea pigs and rats to a hct environment. The elevated temperature was produced experimentally in an incubator, not naturally by a viral or other infection. The type of resulting damage tend- ed to depend on the time during pregnancy that the guinea pig or rat was exposed to hyper- thermia. or elevated bodv tem- perature of about three to four dearees fahrenheit. Although none of the studies have been ('one on humans, Edwards and other scientists here suggest that some human birth defects may result from elevated body tenrDeratures in temperate and tropical cli- mates. These scientists suggest that excessive heat, a natural Dhysi- cal factor resulting from fevers associated with common illness- j es such as the flu and with sau-' nas and tropical climates, can possibly be a causa of at least some human birth defects. "This is quite said Dr. Ian Beveridge, veterinarian who works at WHO and at Cam- bridge University la England. He added in an interview, "These findings imply that feb- rile illnesses of whatever cause in pregnant women could con- cdivably damage the fetus and affect the intelligence of the child. There's a big field where this research could fit in." Although scientists have learned that serious birth de- fects can result when mothers are exposed on pregnancy to thalidomide or rubella (Germen ineasle such teratogenic TN ancient Rome, a n.r- SKi f'TJght twice about declaring him self bs'ikrunt. It UTS an offer1- ve punhh- bv slavery or death. rrd the cho'ce was up to the drugs and viruses account for just a small psrcer.taee of hu- man birth defects. Chenrcals and irradiation can also cause birth defects. To learn if raised tempera- tures could be an important factor in human birth defects, Beveridge said that WHO had asked laboratories in New j England and California to re- peat and carry forward the line of research that Edwards had begun at the University cf Syd- ney veterinary school in Aus- tralia.

V M April h the month of the cT-mond birthstone, ar.d the Diamond Information Centre has finally dropped a line to let me know hcwcum these precious gems are measured in carats. Centuries ago. gem dealers in the Middle Bast used th.3 seeds cf the carob tree, call- ed Iteration, to balance their scales. The seeds were sur- prizingly uniform in weight. Even on today's precise scales, scientists have beaa unable to detect more than one three-thousandth of an ounce difference between the seeds. I did try pointing out to my family that because I'm an April blessing, the centre says ''this is the perfect op- portunity to give a unique gift of diamond jewellery to someone but scnre- haw, nobody paid any atten- tion.
