Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 5, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LEIHBRIDGE HERALD Wedneidoy, Auguil 5, 1970 Opii In My aion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Slatf Writer "RELAXATION for many people is an impossible feeling because of the fast pace at which the world is spinning and the way people are hurry-scur- rying around. Although work hours are shorter and machines take a heavy load from employees, the pressure on people's minds seems to be all the more demanding. There are many degrees of relaxation. A Satur- day-off could mean worrying about whether a replace- ment is going lo cause more work on Monday. That certainly is not relaxation. Just lying in a lawn chair with a cool drink could be very pleasing but certainly not if you are watching to see that children don't fall in the pool or worrying about getting ready in time for a 4 p.m. appointment. Although one can reach a state of relaxation wliile involved in activities such as painting or music, the body is still active and therefore tense. In my opinion, relaxation means making or growing slack. This means not only allowing all the muscles in your body to become completely lax but also for, every nerve to concentrate only on its own section of the body. The study of numerology explains how each per- son has vibrations and how a person can feel some- one else's vibrations even if walls separate them. To relax, one must be completely oblivious to anything and anyone surrounding them. If you do not know what I mean try the follow- ing exercise. Lie on your back on something straight with nothing under your head and arms stretched out. With eyes closed, breathe very slowly and heavily. With each breath you should feel yourself sinking deeper and deeper. Then start to loosen every muscle. Start with your toes, loosen and relax. Then your ankles, legs, knees, hips, buttocks, small of the back and right up to the top of the head. And be sure not to forget to loosen the jaw. This should be done slowly and leave no muscles tense at all. By this time you should be able to feel your heart sending out its life-supply of blood to every part of your body. Just stop and tlu'nk, can I feel the blood running down my leg? Am I conscious of the presence of every rib? It seems silly to own so many beautiful parts In one body and completely ignore them. If anyone should come and try to move you, no part of the body should tighten up in defence. When being dragged, the arms should trail along or the head roll dver. Of course maybe this won't give you the type of relaxation you would appreciate the best, but in my opinion It certainly is worth a try after a terribly busy day at the office. I have found though, that if you put yourself to sleep at night in this way, waking up can take until 10 a.m. and many cups of tea and coffee. Go ahead, try it and see what you think. It may be great for you. rr .1 r U -winci School For Withdrawn Pill Affects Clotting Of Blood Says Researcher At Biology Meet TORONTO (CP) While most other schools throughoul Metropolitan Toronto have set tied down into the long summer Flemington school is hopping. public Insurance For Nurses? VANCOUVER (CP) Law- yer Mary Southin of Vancouver sxys registered nurses should obtain liability insurance simi- lar to that held by other profes- sional groups. Miss Southin told a recent meeting of the Registered Nurses' Association ot British Columbia that liability insur- ance is a safeguard against being sued for damages. She said that in any profes- sion there are bound to be con- flicts between duty to one's su- periors, duty to the law and duty to professional ethics. The nurses subsequently ap- proved a resolution calling for an investigation into an emer- gency medical aid act that would grant protection to medi- cal persons giving aid at acci- dents or in an emergency. The school is the scene of a volunteer summer course ir perception designed to aid some of the reading. The approach is children in a long way from the old-style primer. Principal James Montgom- erie believes that the way to the three Rs is through the five senses and sight, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling play an important role in the teaching methods. The 200 children in the course were selected because they were more withdrawn than their classmates in kindergar- ten, Grade 1 or Grade 2, or liave some special language or emotional problem. "These children just sit in the shadows and they get the crumbs from the teachers all y e a says teacher Eileen Stephenson. But now the more assertive children aren't around and the shy ones have :heir day, with 10 teachers and 20 teacher-aides to help draw them out.' The summer course Is based on learning theories developed by Purdue University psycholo- gist N. C. Kephart, and tested by York University psychologist Harold A. Minden. According to the theory, slow learners are often perceptually handicapped, and their learning performance can be improved by exercises that make them more aware of spatial relations of the body; right hand, left hand, upper and lower parts, balance and co-ordinated move- ment. And so the classes are all movement. Tom Crothers, director of Se- neca College Children's The- atre, works at the school and is an expert at drawing out the retiring children. In the school auditorium he )uts the children through crea- ive drama sessions. "The child bridges his world .hrough f a n t a s said Mr. Crothers.

By KATUN MOSEK MONTREAL (CP) A phy- siologist at the University of To- ronto reported finding that oral contraceptives seem to cause fluctuations in the clot-dissolv- ing potential of the blood "We took three small groups of women for a three-month Anne Hedling said in an interview, "those who had never been on the pill and were just beginning, those who had been taking oral contraceptives for a period of six to 10 months and those who had been on the pill from one to tliree years." Working with Dr. F. C. Monk- house, the researcher found that women who had never taken the pill showed low clot-dissolving potential. One of the fears expressed In recent medical reports about the pill is that it may, in some cases, cause blood clots. "Now, note that the women who had never taken the pill had low said Miss Hedlin. 'Twelve hours after takin ;heir first oral contracegtiy there was a marked increase not further decrease, in th level of clot-dissolving poten tial." But when they took the pi] for three weeks and then wen "off" It for the final week, there was a decrease in clot-dissolv- ing activity. Miss Hedlin came to the con- clusion that if the use of the pill produced an increase in the level of the activity, (.ten with- drawal could result in a fall in the levil of activity. "If, as some workers believe, a balance is normally main- tained between the clot-forming and clot-dissolving activity in the blood, this fluctuation could result in a disturbance in the balance. In the group that had been taking (he pill from six to 10 months, some showed fluctua- tion in the level of clot-dissolv- ing potential while others didn't. Those who had been on the pill from one to three years showed no fluctuation, even when the women were off the pill in the final week of the four-week cycle. The researchers were unable to determine whether in the lat- ter group the blood dissolving potential, while steady, was lower or higher Uiah it had been before any of them took the pill. taken varied as content of the did estrogen pill "which In all cases, brands of pills I are attending. ranged from 50 to 100 micro- grams." "So we can't really say that a particular brand or dosage of estrogen had any marked Influ- ence on tlie increase or div crease of blood-clooting poten- tial."

Anna Sche- Hnina, one of four women captains in Russia, looks over her command, the 20-000-ton Soviet freighter MV Anton Chekhov, after it docked in Vancouver. Capt. Anna has been sailing for 35 years and admits it is difficult for a woman to gain a comparable rank with men at sea. Russian Skipper Named Anna VANCOUVER (CP) Th: Soviet freighter MV Anton Chekhov left for Port land, Ore., enroute to Japan and at her helm is a captain named Anna. Anna? "I am the first sailor in the family, but I have a brother who later followed in my foot- says Capt. Anna Scheti- nina, who has been one of a select group of female Russian skippers for more than 35 year's. About half of her busy year is devoted to teaching at the Marine Institute in Vladi- vostok, her home port, and birthplace, where she lectures on seamanship. "I'm lucky that I have the best of both worlds. When I lire of being ashore, I am able to bring a ship out for six months or so." Even in the Soviet Union, she is one of a comparatively-rare breed. "In Russia it's more difficult for a woman to become a cap- said Capt. Anna, who is a widow. She said she knows of only three others. "However, we do have a larger number of woman air- line captains in Aeroflot (the state-owned national And of course, there are many, many women holding high- ranking positions in Ihe Soviet armed Forces." The MV Anton Chekhov real- ly has a woman's touch, with six other doctor, nurses, cooks and stew- ardesses. The most striking feature of the ship is its almost clinical cleanliness. Brass and glass gleam from end to end and no- where to be seen is there a cigarette butt or litter. The ship's manifest showed she is carrying steel, Japanese cars and general cargo. During a tour of the MV An- ton Chekhov, Capt. Anna chat- ted amiably about her com- mand and her work, but like western women, she was reluc- tant to reveal her age. There was one clue: She has a 43- year-old son. i ing from the premise that peo- ple are what they eat, the Montreal Catholic School Com- mission spends an- nually on experiments to im- prove teenage eating habits. Pizza, french fries and soft drinks are out in their 50 cafe- terias around Montreal. Also taboo are the cakes, marsh- mallow puffs and chocolate milks usually dispensed in vast quantities by catering services. Replacing them are cheese, raisins, buttered rolls, fruit and plain milk, with options of cot- tage cheese and yogurt for the calorie-conscious. Hot dogs are served occa- sionally and ketchup and pickles are usually available. "We want the children to know pickles are good; ket- chup is good too, but they don't have to eat it every says "It's said Canadians eat only potatoes, peas and Mrs. S'aint-Jean-Demers said. "We are serving kernel corn, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cau- liflower, beets and so on. "When we introduce some- thing new, we give the chil- dren a small sample." Only 2 per cent of the students served by the experi- mental program buy the 70- cent hot meal. The rest bring sandwiches and supplement them with a beverage and fruit or dessert. As working mothers are common in new .housing devel- opments, the nutritionist be- lieves that the school's hot lunch is the only one of the day for many children. "Lunch is becoming the most important meal of the she says. The Montreal city health department says 80 per Nicole Saint-Jean-Demers, nu-' cent of students skip break- trition chief at the MCSC. The purpose of her menus is demonstrate good :ood habits.and to show the pleasures of a varied diet. First, a common aversion to vegetables must be overcome. fast, and this explains why rolls and fruit are available during the mid-morning break. Drastic and uneven dieting is prevalent among girls. Both sexes suffer from complexion problems which often have their rools in inadequate or unbalanced diets. The usual approach by nutri- tionists is soft-sell. But occa- sionally they get tough and try to break what looks like a bad habit. For example, students often run into the cafeteria, grab i table and delegate one person to pick up food for everyone. This means many never see the array of nutrition foods lined up to tempt them. In retaliation, the commis- sion bought super-small trays, but even that didn't work. Now the trays are stacked so high with food that the cashiers have difficulty adding up the price. School years are the best time for changing eating hab- its, maintains Mrs. Saint-Jean- Demers. "Food habits are the most difficult of all to change. When you get to be 20 years old, eat- ing habits are formed. "But teen-agers are very re- ceptive to new ideas. This is :he time when they accept changes and can bring home a message to their families."
