14 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Friday, August 28, 1970 Safety First For Football Players liy MARILYN ANDEHSON Ilenild Family Editor CO YOUR son is turning out for football this school !orm! Chances arc if lie's a de- fensive halfback, he'll be in- jured more often than any other player. This nerve wracking bit of information came about as a result of a survey conducted in the 1969 season by Dr. Steve Mendryk and Lawrence Du- fresne of the department of Physical Education at the Uni- versity of Alberta. The survey was made in the Edmonton public and separate school systems, the Huskie Bantam Football Association, and the University of Alberta. Most frequent injury record ed was in actual collision ol the players, with 74 per cent ol the injuries occurring in this manner. Trips and falls re suited in 12 per cent, just a bit lower than those to ankle and knee. Danger to ligaments is still a major problem for football players, coaches and trainers making up 25 per cent of the total injuries. These occur mainly to knees and ankles. It seems that if the kids get through the pre-season ses- sions and the first quarter of the season they're more than half way home. The research- ers discovered that from in- juries recorded when a doctor was called, and-or games were missed as a result, that 60 per cent of the injuries occurred in this time. Practice does make perfect Mail Service Request By Wl Members WINNIPEG (CP) The Fed erated Women's Institutes of Canada have asked the federal government to take immediate steps to restore full postal ser- vices. Mrs. John McLean of Sea- forth, Ont., chairman of the res- olutions committee, told some 500 delegates to the fifth trien- nial convention that telegrams have been sent to Prime Min- ister Trudeau and Postmaster- General Eric Kierans, asking for the action. Mrs. McLean said Thursday a resolution supporting the re- quests had been passed at a pre-convention board meeting The telegrams labelled the curtailment of postal services "a severe blow to the economy of our nation" and urged the government to take necessary action to restore service and "ensure that this service cannot again be disrupted due to strikes." BAN MINISKIRTS COLOMBO, Ceylon (AP) An advisory council to the cul- tural affairs ministry has rec- ommended the banning of mini- skirts, pornographic literature, films based on crime or sex, "trashy" South Indian periodi- cals and newspaper stories with crime themes, an official source said. Most of the council's mem- bers are'Buddhist monks. and can also be considered somewhat of a safety factor in preparing young men how to play the game and use their bod'ies properly. The study showed that in- juries occurred in warm-ups, practices, and squad scrim- mages, but that specialized training must be employed to prevent injuries. Conditioning, in joints and neck, are especially important. Defensive backs, says the study' need more fundamental instruction in proper tackling "We lowered our number oi techniques. The danger here is the resul- tant concussion if not carried concussions with new helmeti and sore shoulders with new shoulder pads. Actually, for out properly. some reason, the injuries will Well fitting equipment, from year to year. One year it's knees while the next it course, is a necessity. What are the chances of your son being over? The injured over study found and that only 20 per cent had multiple injuries, and out of players only 457 players were injured 571 times, a rate of 38.9 per cent. The data used in the study came from 38 teams represent- ing professional, intercolleg- iate, junior, high school and bantam levels. -The lo-cal situation is not too different according to one Leth- bridge coach. Jim Whitelaw, coach of the LCI Rams, said conditioning is the answer, to injuries as well as good equipment. may bo ankles. "We'll have groin injuries to begin with when muscles are being stretched. I'd agree that the majority of the injuries are in the first of the year but they tend to increase toward the end of the season as well, even though they're in good condi- tion." Mr.- Whitelaw said injuries can occur more easily in a weakened muscle. "We do hill- climbing for ankles, but the ankles become weakened with the exercise and then the stress of playing can injure them be- fore they get built up again." Methods of coaching differ too. Blocking and tackling with the head can result in more neck injuries. He said a popular misconcep- tion is that the guy being tack- led gets hurt the most. The tackier liimself can be hurt much more. St. John Ambulance came in for its share of credit in as- sisting city football. Mr. White- law said representatives of St. John were always on hand and could be relied upon for both I first aid and the safety of the young player. i Medicals are a must with players at Winston Churchill high school. Coach Pete Neufeld was unavailable for further comment. While football can be consid- ered a hazardous sport, the U.S. National Safety Council Statis- tics show that football is much safer than swimming, hunting, or driving a car or motorbike.

Day Too TORONTO (CP) A spokes- man for the Toronto New Fem- inists says Canada should hold its own women's Liberation day soon. Bonnie Kreps was comment- ing in an interview on the lib- eration day held Wednesday across the United States in which women burned bras, ig- nored their husbands and Catholic Women 'Do Nothing Constructive1 SAuVT JOHN, N.B. (CP) The Canadian Catholic Federa- tion of Alumni was told here that Catholic women's organi- zations have spent too much time raising money for the church and done too little to promote the interests of wom- en. Dr. Doris Boyle, an econom- ics professor at Xavier Junior College in Sydney, N.S., told the organization's national con- vention that the possibility of a women's revolution now exist- ed. "Women's liberation move- ments are staling what women want and while many of us do not agree with then- demands, we are not doing anything con- structive on behalf of women." Dr. Boyle said an example of discrimination between men and women existed in Nova Scotia's minimum-wage laws. The rate for women was 25 cents per hour less than for men, "yet 'I know of no Cath- olic women's group that has made its voice heard in an at- tempt to have this corrected." "Little wonder that women ;urn to such organizations as the women's liberation front to champion tlieir causes." TOO TIRED TO LOVE? Many marriages are wrecked or blighted by a simple hidden raii.se.

"Down in the States the men aren't laughing any more. They are nervous. They know wom- en's liberation means some- thing. 'Here the men laugh and they ridicule. They do it on radio and they do it hi the media. They will learn, though, that we are serious." About 32 Toronto feminists spoke out in favor of the U.S. women's liberation day in Nathan Phillips S'quare Wednesday night. They were heckled by men in the audi- ence.

Doctors Favor Abortion OSLO, Norway (Reuters) A conference of 600 doctors from around the world came out in favor of abortion today, but only as a therapeutic measure. The doctors from national as- sociations of 62 countries were attending a world medi- cal assembly here.
