Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Talented pupil Lydia Avery, a 15-year-old high school student, checks her tack with trainer, Capt. John de Kenryes, at the Charleswood Riding Club in. Winnipeg. Capt. cfe Kenryes, who has taught horsemanship for 11 years, says Lydia "has a long way to go, but she has all the makings of an international rider." Lydia practises jumping five or six nights a week but can't decide on a riding career or whether to continue her education.. She says that obtaining a university education may cut into her riding time. _____________ .Wednesday, April 1lf 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAlD 7 Birth control pill blamed for stroke BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) Until Nov. 6, 1968, Laraine Henard was a busy young housewife, caring for four foster children and planning to adopt two of them. Now she is par- tially paralysed, walks and speaks with difficulty, can do only limited work around the house. A stroke that damaged her brain reduced her mental ca- pacity in some areas to that of a small child. Her judgment is greatly impaired, and she and her is crippled by had to give up the foster children. As argued in a law- suit now being tried here, Mrs. Henard's stroke was caused by the birth-control pills she had been taking. The Henards also contend that the manufacturer of the pills, Syntex Corp. did not give adequate warnings about dangerous side effects. The pills were sold under the brand name Norinyl 2. Moreover Mrs. Henard testi- fied she was innluenced in her decision to take the pills by a booklet in her obstetrician's of- fice called The Pills and Human Happiness. The 64-page booklet was dis- tributed by Syntex and, says Mrs. Henard's lawyers, gave no hint of trouble the pills might cause. FIRM DEFENDANT The suit asks million in general damages and mil- lion in punitive damages. De- fendants are Syntex; Mrs. He- Unexpected holiday HULL, Que.

She sad she has no desire to see her parents, grandparents or any ether cotton-pickin' relative. Family to her means "hus- band and kids period." Why doesn't she just dig a cave, crawl in and avoid everybody? My sister had the same idea and she is paying dearly for her selfishness. Her own children are now grown and they are giving her the same treatment she gave HER par- ents. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Often I find myself applaud- ing your wisdom and corn- men sense. But now and then you display a smug, arbitrary attitude that makes me furious. I refer to your insistence that people who stash pornography, enjoy stag films, peep shows, etc., are "adolescent" or "sick." Granted, Miss Landers, they may be either or both, but labelling them does not solve the problem.

Happy Branch Of A Family Tree DEAR HAPPY BRANCH: That letter provoked a sur- prisingly heavy Those who agreed with the writer and those who dis- agreed were equally divided. The Midwesterners and South- erners favored close knit family ties. The Easterners and Westerners went the other way. Why? I cannot say. must be considered and dealt with. How wonderful it would be if everyone in this world were sexually fulfilled married to (or going with) a person whose sexual appetite match- ed theirs perfectly. There would be no need to consider alternatives. Surely you know this is not the case. Some- tunes a race horse gets team- ed with a plow horse. Or no sex partner is avaSable. Seme people are inhibited and shy, forced to turn to vicari- ous methods of gratification such as looking at pictures, or live performances. If an off-beat tumon helps a person, what's wrong with it? Does it hurt anybody? You realize, of course, that many women enjoy porno too. Remember that fantas- tic sale of the first magazine in America to feature a cen- trefold of a nude male? And now we have a movie f which I shall not name, but the star was featured on the cover in a popular news maga- and it promises to break box-office records. So please, Ann, don't be such a Wuenose. Be realistic. And compassionate. I hate to see you line up with the seg- ment of society which favors censorship and decides what adults should see, read and look at Minn. DEAR RICH: I agree with several points in your letter. But you are adding apples and oranges and getting pome- granates. I am and always have been against censorship. I believe the present popularity of hard-core pornography is a reaction to our phony, inid- Vktarian years of repres- sion. But we are getting nutty in the opposite direction. It is my hope that in time, a public, free to choose, will become so surfeited with trash that they will no longer spend their time or money on it. That, to inc. would be the hallmark of maturity. nard's obstetrician, Dr. Richard C. Wallace of Bakcrsfield; and a doctor who also prescribed the pills, Dr. Harry Syntex, chartered in Panama with subsidiaries in Delaware and in Palo Alto, Calif., has de- nied all charges. The firm also refuse to discuss and aspects of the suit. During the first stages of the trial, expected to last about 10 weeks, several physicians testi- fied for the plaintiffs that they believe the pills caused Mrs. Henard's stroke. Lawyers say this is appar- ently the first suit accusing a pharmaceutical company of misleading or false advertising in as the Syntex specifically at women. The Henard lawsuit involves events and practices In through 1968. Since then, said one of Mrs. Henard's lawyers, the Syntex booklet has been re- vised and all sales of oral con- traceptives are accompanied by warnings about possible side fects.
