Lib movement had no meaning in trucking career TORONTO (CP) Ethel Cruise may be considered the great-great-grandmother of women's liberation However, she was not active in the movement She was much too busy raising her family and running her own trucking firm She did it during the 1920s and 1930s, days when most women hovered about a stove and not a fleet of trucks which earned coal and paved roads She now is 89, wears pink dresses and pearls and looks very much the genteel lady But there is no doubt she is very much in command as a respected matriarch A recent birthday party was attended by a selection of her four living children, five grandchildren, six great- grandchildren, one great- great-grandchild and admir- ing in-laws If Mrs Cruise thinks she did anything special in her day, she prefers not to dwell on it It was something she had to do She did it and that was that During those times she was 4 feet, 11 inches tall, weighed 85 pounds and was the boss of her husband, son, son-in-law, brother-in-law, assorted cous- ins and other workmen Mrs Cruise was born Ethel Hindman in Owen Sound Her work career began at age 14 when she left school to work in a furniture tactory At 17 she was married to William Cruise, a laborer who could neither read nor write Vitamin doses have little effect on mental illness WASHINGTON (AP) A Harvard University psychiatry professor says the treatment of mental illness with large doses of vitamin is "premature application of inadequate knowledge Dr Seymour Kety spoke during a briefing on brain sciences conducted in connection with the annual meeting of the National Academy of Sciences "The evidence on which the treatment of mental illness with large doses of vitamins is based is not he said "Controlled studies failed to indicate any of these vitamins are involved in schizophrenia or that large doses have any effect This is one rather flagrant example of the premature application of knowledge Dr Linus Pauling of Stanford University, who has received attention in recent years because of his contention large doses of Vitamin C prevent the common cold, has been a strong advocate of vitamins in Cut use fresh dandelions An answer to today's spiralling costs lies as close as your ditch, according to Liz Pavan, 1276 9th Ave N "It's the lowly dandelion, just now inching through the ground with the first burst of warm weather It's delicately- flavored, tender leaves are a sure source of needed vitamins and make a nutritious, scrumptuous she claims Mrs Pavan who learned the value of young dandelion leaves from her Italian mother-in-law, Mrs Maria Pavan, began her annual search for the young tender shoots, last Saturday Armed with a pail and a sharp trowel, she toured the ditch borders in her area, forking up the small plants "It's best to get them young when they are just she says After several washings she dowses them with olive oil and vinegar, salts and peppers them to taste and are they delicious the treatment of mental illness Kety singled out Pauling as one scientist who has pushed the idea But the Harvard psychiatrist said more than a dozen studies of vitamins' effect on mental patients have failed to show any effect Last year a task force of psychiatrists issued a report under the auspices of the American Psychiatric Association that said it found no evidence large doses of vitamins are effective in treating mental illness During the summer she ran the Harrison Park Inn, which she rented from the Owen Sound town council She often worked from 11 a m to 11 p m baking all the cakes, pies and bread herself and serving an average 200 per- sons a day For a period she managed the Royal Hotel too and be- lieved she was the only woman in town with a busi- ness career When the family moved to Toronto she bought her hus- band's uncle's cartage firm, starting off first with teams of draft horses for delivery wagons, converting later to trucks when progress de- manded it Not only did she manage the firm, E Cruise, Cartage Contractor, and the drivers, she also fed the men lunch each day and put m hours that went from 5 a m to midnight most days During the winter the trucks hauled coal about the city In the summer she tented near places like Peterborough, Brockville and Sturgeon Falls while her trucks paved the roads In the early 1940s, she suf- fered a severe heart attack, but proceeded to run the busi- ness from her bed She sold the business and then converted her downtown house into a tourist home dur- ing the summer and a board- ing house in the winter One thing Mrs Cruise likes to emphasize is the fact that during all those years as a working mother, she was lucky she was able to tend her family from an office at home or else take them with her AFTERNOON BINGO MOOSE 1234 3rd Ave. North a Cirdi DOUBLIO WMkljr Fm Cirdi Sponsored by The Moose Lodge No Children 16 Allowed to Everybody LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd Ave. N.
