Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 50 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wtdnmdiy, 4, 1974 How about a gymnasium in office basement? r< Exercise may be mixed business OTTAWA (CP) A gym in the office basement where the stockroom used to be? Or a wn-minute stretch-and-jerk break for the girls in the steno pool? Those are among a number of ideas under discussion at a three-day conference of busi- ness executives, workers, bu- reaucrats and others interested in mixing exercise into regular working days. Idea of the conference, In- dustry Minister Alastair Gil- lespie said as it opened, is to show workers and their bosses that physical lit- mile guaranteed alignment This ons price entitles you to a com- plete alignment every 5.000 miles or as often as necessary, in accordance with the printed guarantee. You're covered for 4 years or 40.000 miles, whichever comes first regardless of present mileage. Just one price for North American cars. Ask your Firestone man about this unique protection policy today. Priced to make it easy! nesses "might even be good business." Proper exercise can make executives and employees happier and more, productive. Philippe de Gaspe Beaubien, president of Telemedia Communications Ltd., of Montreal, and a con- sultant to the health de- partment, agreed, saying it was imperative that people find ways of "sweating out their tensions." Mr. Beaubien said exercise and fitness programs may eventually become as. much a part of the work-a-day world as health benefits and fire protection. Many worthwhile programs could be started with little cost: Companies could convert small, unused rooms, for instance, into exercise parlors. To encourage those attending to take the word back to their offices and' plants, conference organizers offered delegates various fitness tests to point out problems brought on by stress and strain of modern working. Two hours before sessions began at 9 a.m., technicians took blood tests from delegates which, along with medical histories, were fed Canadian stabbed BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (CP) A Vancouver, B.C., businessman was fatally stabbed in his hotel room here Saturday, police said Sunday. Alfred Wayne Netter, 44, was out on bail pending an appeal on a perjury conviction for which he received a five year prison sentence in Van- couver in September. He was found by a maid. Netter had been stabbed repeatedly in the chest and back. into a computer to produce print-outs predicting the chances participants had of dying during the next 10 years. The health department is letting a limited number of doctors use the test on a trial basis to show people the type of risks they run in their day- to-day lives. Idea of the test, called the "health hazard is to give people a "clearer un- derstanding of their health bank balance." Delegates are also given a clear idea of just how many calories they'll soak up and expand during the conference. CALORIES LISTED Itineraries handed out to the 250 delegates come complete with graphs showing, for in- stance, that they will consume 841 calories at cold buffet of ham, olives and asparagus together with pea soup and another 339 during "nutritional for coffee, juice and muffins. Each will tuck away at least 175 more at an evening recep- tion if they drink 1.5 ounces of booze and fill their glasses up with mix. All told, delegates would take in calories if they ate the lunches and banquets provided at the meeting. But they will burn up even total of tak- ing part in the activities set out for them. Four and three-quarters hours of lectures, for in- stance, consumes 566 calories, the itinerary said. Another 391 would be used up if a delegate talked with others for three hours. Organizers also built exer- cise sessions into the conference program. For 15 minutes during the afternoon session, all 250 were to stand beside their seats and take part in an exercise pro- gram that may someday be used by workers in offices across the country. Blinded by smallpox Tepi, a Bangladesh orphan gets acquainted with her new parents, Peter and Jean Hughes of Lockwood, Ont. The girl, found abondoned in a village near Dacca, is believed to be between 11 and 14. It is understood she was blinded by smallpox. party Bicycle lanes popular formed PARIS (CP) Of all the measures announced by the French Government to conserve on gasoline, the most popular, and the one taken most seriously has been the appropriation of in 1975 for the construction in new cities of reserved lanes for bicyclists.

'N', Kelowna, B.C pressways and national highways have incurred the wrath of automobile makers, and have displeased motorists who have paid little attention to government requests that they use public transpor- tation. Pleas asking motorists to leave their cars at home on weekends have all but been ig- nored. The construction of cycling lanes has been advocated for only cyclists, but by physicians and ecologists. Those two groups feel 000 is totally insufficient in that it will not permit France to catch up with other Euro- pean countries. Others ask if public authorities should not first of all give attention to bicycle traffic in existing cities where bicycle parking and safety measures are lacking. However, the government has for the first time recogniz- ed that architects, urban planners and builders in newly-developed areas must deal not only with the problems of pedestrians and motorists, but with cyclists and motorcyclists. Last October, at a general conference on cycling, Robert Galley, French roads minister, said: "I believe in using bicycles in the new building zones. We think the building of these areas would make it easier to get to school as well as work on a bicycle." France has about 600 miles of reserved cycling lanes already, compared to miles in West Germany and miles in the Netherlands. Of France's 52 million in- habitants, at least 18 million are cyclists. One out of every two workers uses a bicycle to Prisoners suffer injuries OTTAWA (CP) Inger Hansen, the federal prisoner ombudsman, says a large number of prisoners suffer in- juries, particularly the loss of fingers, in industrial ac- cidents in prison. She says she also has the impression that authorities discourage prisoners from seeking compensation. She says that if the pris- oner does not receive com- pensation, either through the fault of his authorities or him- self, "he not only leaves the institution more handicapped than when he came in, but he feels bitter and frustrated as well." She says that an arrange- ment for payment of compen- sation is being developed but it must be made apparent to staff that prisoners have a right to seek compensation. She recommended the ap- pointment of a person with le- gal training to examine the situation. get to work while the majority of students use bicycles to get to school, college or univer- sity. The energy crisis has accen- tuated the popularity of bicy- cle riding during the last several years. Today, cycling is not only associated with recreation and sports, but also transport. In six years, bicycle sales have trebled in France. This year alone 1.8 million were sold while French bicycle manufacturers estimate another million were sold out- side France. Bertrand Peugeot, presi- dent of Peugeot Bicycle Co., the largest manufacturer in France, said his company could not meet the demand last August. He added his company could have sold at least another bikes because of the demand. QUEBEC (CP) There are already two provincial parties in Quebec claiming to be the standard bearers of Major C. H. Douglas' Social Credit philosophy. A third has been added but much of its organization remains a secret. It's called le Parti Reformateur and one of its founders is Armand Bois, a former Creditiste member of the national assembly for St. Sauveur. Mr. Bois, 54, said yesterday his party would go back to the roots of Major Douglas' prin- ciples of social dividends and interest-free loans because the people are tired of party splits and leadership conven- tions. Provincially, the Creditistes came on the scene only four years ago, but since then they have had two leaders, Camil Samson and Yvon Dupuis, and one interim leader, Mr. Bois.
