Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monaay, Aprn zz, LEI nemuue Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I am a 12-year-old girl who has something to say to a lot of kids who are in the same spot I'm in. My parents are divorced. I'm the youngest of four kids. We all live with Mom, but we see Dad every two weeks and write him letters whenever we feel like it. This might not be nice to say, but I'm glad my folks got a divorce. When Dad was home, he and Mom fought all the time and it made us kids very nervous. Mom had headaches and Dad had stomach aches. Now they both feel fine and treat each other like friends instead of enemies. Us kids feel better, too. My little brother has stopped stuttering and I don't shake like I used to when I was afraid my dad might lose his temper and slap my mother. So, kids, if your parents are separated or divorced, it probably means they had to do it for their health's sake, and for yours, too. So cheer up and don't feel sad. I Understand Dear I. U.: For a young lady of 12 you have a beautiful set of brains Congratulations on figuring things out so well. I hope your letter helps other kids who are walking in the same moccasins. Dear Ann Landers: Please say a word to girls who don't have enough sense to write a decent "thank-you" note for a beautiful wedding gift. We received this one "Dear (not even our "The silver dish" (it was a casserole) "is nice. We are very busy. Ed and Mary." Comment, Dear Ag: Poor thing was never taught how to write a gracious note. I feel sorry for her because she will probably go through life with this handicap. The girl did at least acknowledge the gift, however, which is an improvement over the clod who waits until she bumps into you at a social gathering and then apologizes for not having gotten around to it. Are drugs O.K. if you learn how to control them? Can they be of help? The answers are in Ann Landers'? new booklet, "Straight Dope on Drugs." For each booklet ordered, send a dollar bill, plus a long, seif addressed, stamped envelope, (16c postage) to Ann Landers, P.O. Box 3346, Chicago, Illinois 60654. Flu bugs find fewer victims OTTAWA (CP) Canadians suffered less with flu bugs this year than last, a blessing that appears to be influenced by the ABCs of influenza viruses. Canadians succumbed mainly to the influenza B virus this past winter, says Dr. A.E. Kelen of the federal bureau of viral diseases. Generally, the type B virus is less virulent than the type A virus which accounted for widespread influenza outbreaks during the 1972-73 winter, he said Friday in an BINGO Mon., April 22nd Jackpot in 53 Nos.

Although the symptoms are the same for both types of headache, muscle ache, nausea, vomiting and other familiar people with the type A virus seem to suffer more So far, the bureau knows of no influenza victims of the C virus this year, said Dr. Kelen, chief of diagnostic services This relatively mild virus is rare, however, and only one case was detected the winter before. Health department reports to the end of March record scattered outbreaks of influenza A virus in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec. The influenza is a variation of the London flu which was widespread last year. The influenza B virus, a strain that combines features of the 1968 Hong Kong flu virus and a newer virus called Hong Kong 5, was widespread throughout Western Canada, Ontario and Quebec. As in previous years, children and young adults were most likely to become infected But elderly people are not immune. However, the Ontario and Quebec health departments have reported that influenza mortality among the elderly this year has been lower than previous years. BINGO-RAINBOW HALL-1401 51h Ava. N.

ALTMAN New York Times NEW YORK Restrictions on fetal research that have been instituted in the last few weeks are seriously impeding doctors in several medical centres in the United States in their efforts to develop potential cures and preventions for a wide variety Cycle mishaps studied SASKATOON (CP) Lack of experience by motorcyclists and the inability of other drivers to see motorcycles are the two mam reasons for the high number of motorcycle accidents, a University of Saskatchewan study has shown. The study, completed by Saskatchewan's vehicle accident study team, was based on investigation of 50 motorcycle accidents which occurred during a four and a half month period last spring and summer. It suggested that to reduce motorcycle accidents, drivers must be made more aware of motorcyclists and the ability of motorcyclists must be generally improved. Twenty eight of the 50 accidents concerned double vehicle collisions. Three quar- ters of the accidents resulted from an error on the part of a motorists rather than cyclist. Half the 22 single-vehicle accidents resulted from loss of control. Others involved poor judgment, including excessive speed, and mechanical difficulties related to maintenance and design. The study found only a few of the cyclists involved in the accidents had more than six months experience or more than one season's familiarity with their machine. Spaghetti champion on diet TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Mike Aprile says setting a world- spaghetti-eating record started him on an eating binge that pushed his weight to 478 pounds. So, instead of taking a trip to Rome, he had to use his prize for a hospital dieting program. "I was eating myself into the Aprile, 23, said this week at Tampa hospital. Last December the cab driver consumed more than 6Vz pounds of spaghetti at one sitting to capture the title, which will be included in the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. The record had been 2.1 pounds, set in 1970 by Tom Cresci. "I'm down to 404 pounds to- says Aprile. At Easter he visited a rela- tive and devoured five pounds of goat meat and a huge por- tion of sausage. "It's a he admitted. "I slip a little." of diseases. These cures are now affecting research on cancer, birth defects, aging, the common cold and other major health problems, according to interviews with leading medical investigators. Last week, a Boston obstetrician was indicted for manslaughter in the death of a fetus in connection with a legal abortion. Four other doctors in Massachusetts were accused of violating a 19th century law against grave robbing after they used tissue from aborted fetuses for medical research. In addition, anti abortion forces and people who feel it is unethical to use products of human conception for research have picketed institutions around the THE BETTER HALF country where fetal tissues are used in the laboratory. At least one city, Cleveland, has passed an ordinance prohibiting research on, or medical use of, products of conception. Concern resulting from debate over the ethics of fetal research has reportedly led to curtailment of some grants to researchers using fetal tissue. Further, researchers here, in Boston, Philadelphia and Cleveland said the growing public debate over fetal research had curtailed some of their projects.

It cost only one punch of the credit The homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist Without question prices are going up! When they do, don't let your wallet go down! To help reduce food costs, keep the following points in mind. Check newspaper for weekend specials on food. Build your menus around these foods. Prepare a grocery list before you go shopping. Compare costs and buy food in the form (fresh, frozen or canned) that gives the most servings for your money. Use less expensive food such as: skim milk powder, lower grade fruits and vegetables, fresh produce in season, cheaper cuts of meat, uncooked rather than prepared cereals. Eggs, cheese, dried beans or peas can be substituted for meat and are much less expensive. Compare prices of various brands often there will be a difference of 2-3 cents or more for the same quality quantity. Advertised brands usually sell for more than unadvertised brands. Avoid fancy packaging and premiums. Both add to the cost of the food. Buy food in quantity, particularly staples, if you have sufficient storage space and the cash to spend. Prevent food waste by proper storage and by cooking methods that conserve nutrients. Avoid unnecessary leftovers by preparing foods in the amounts needed.

Pursers rejected TORONTO (CP) Mr. Jus- tice Mayer Lerner of the Supreme Court of Canada rejected a weekend application from Air Canada male pursers for a court order stopping the airline from opening their jobs to women. The 400 pursers are opposing a plan, due to start May 1. amalgamating the seniority lists for male and female employees of Air Canada. Mr. Justice Lerner said that the plan was approved by members of the Canadian Air Line Flight Attendants Association last fall. If the pursers thought they would suffer by it, he said, they should have taken legal action earlier. MONTREAL (CP) Fur fashions ranging from the traditional notched-collar, full-length mink to skirts, suits and evening wear in swakara were featured Friday at a showing spon- sored by the Fur Fashion Council of Canada. Swakara, a broad-tail type fur, showed its versatility in a "Contempora" collection commissioned by the Karakul Board of South-West Africa and designed by six leading Canadian stylists. Mink appeared in its tradi- tional silhouette as well as in an exciting group of geometric-patterned coats. One design featured a smock coat in pearl mink with a trellis pattern of co- ordinated suede, while another was a diamond- patterned coat in three shades of white and beige. Knee-length coats were teamed with leather tie belts and a men's black pearl mink coat featured leather trim on the notched collar. Swakara, a supple fur, showed up in an off-the-shoul- der, midriff top for evening wear, teamed with a floor- length black jersey skirt and elbow-length gloves, and designed by Don Heer of Bender, Goodman and Shear of Toronto. In another evening look, swakara was turned into a long evening skirt with a swakara-trimmed sequin jacket and see-through tlocked-chiffon halter top designed by Donald Richer of I. Richer and Sons of Mon- treal Mr. Richer also showed a white swakara dress with jer- sey sleeves and trim as well as a matching jersey cape. For the tailored-minded, Jack Kuretzky of S. Kuretzky Furs Ltd. in Toronto presented a dressmaker suit featuring a pleated skirt and a jacket with nipped-in waist, broad belt and loose yoke in the back. Swakara jackets were co- ordinated with bulky knit collars, skirts and pants as well as with leather accessories. Robert Bernard of Amsel and Amsel in Montreal teamed a calf-length leather skirt with a leather-trimmed and tied shirt jacket in ochre swakara and a leather beret. Other designers of the "Con- tempora" collection were Ricky Pomplun for Ricky and Ingo Fur Originals Inc. and Dita Martin for Natural Furs Ltd., both of Montreal. New color combinations also made their appearance at the show, such as a hip- hugging royal blue fox jacket and an Arctic-fox knee-length coat with alternating bands of wild red fox for a striped effect.
