Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Doctor disputes pill fears MONTREAL (CP) Dr Jacques Desrosiers, professor o gynccology at University' Montreal, said here there no proven link between the use of birth control pills and tiirom bosis in women. He told the 40th convention o the Association of French-Ian guage Doctors that women should not be frightened by myths surrounding the use o the pill. Dr. Desrosiers said studies have shown the pill does nbi cause excessive coagulation o! the of the causes o; thrombosis. Furthermore, he said, an American study of children born to women who used birth con- trol pills before pregnancy shows no effect on their health. Mother objects to zodiac bus passes EDMONTON (CP) An Edmonton mother objects to the zodiac designs used on the city's monthly school-bus pass and has told the public school board her daughter "should not be subjected to it." The mother said she real- izes that zodiac designs are in vogue with large numbers of people showing interest in horoscopes, but she will not let her daughter buy the bus pass until the objectiona- ble designs are removed. She said she docs not believe in the zodiac. Mr. Taylor said a "fairly difficult" design was chosen to ensure that passes could not be copied or counterfeited. He said the designs had been in use since Sept. 1 and the woman was the only per- son to complain. The mother was put in a difficult position because there was no question of choice as to the type of pass her daughter could use but an entire year's supply of passes could not be changed on the basis of one complaint. Uncluttered brow effect six different styles Buying a wig for the holidays MONTREAL Are you embarking on the exciting ad- venture of buying your first wig or an addition to your wig wardrobe to work extra beauty magic into your holiday hairstyles? Even if you're a veteran wig-wearer by now, and Have settled on one, two or even three wigs that suit your life- style, (here's a lot to know about wig care to keep them looking just like new. But, once you know the basic rules of proper wig care, washing your wig and keeping it looking great is as easy and simple as sudsing out a dripdry, synthetic blouse. Do's your wig thoroughly after each wearing, with a wire wig brush, to remove any accumulation of uusi aau spray. A special needled wig brush should be used with firm but gentle strokes. Do not brush too close to the wig foundation. your wig after every seven to 10 wearings. Use cool or cold water and a mild shampoo which gently cleanses and maintains the wig's natural lustre. Beware fabric washing products or regular shampoo. They can dull synthetic hair and leave it looking lifeless. Squeeze suds gently through the wig. Do not scrub. Rinse thoroughly in cool running water until the water runs clean. Press out excess water gently. Do not wring. Remove any remaining excess water by blotting with a towel. Then turn the wig inside out and hang to air-dry. Dry away from heat as you would your finest lingerie. Wigs will dry faster and maintain their comfortable four- way stretch better if allowed to air-dry, rather than drying on a wig block. For protective care, use a special wig conditioner peri- odically after shampooing. only special wig hairspray on your wig if desired1 on a windy day. the wig inside out between wearings so the foun- dation can air-out thoroughly. In this way, it can be stored easily in a drawer or carried in your purse. Don'fs use a curling iron nor a hair dryer on your dynel wig. Many wigs have permanently set-in curls, waves, body ana" bounce and are not affected by humidity and dampness. They do not absorb moisture as human hair does, thus curling is unnecessary. Never brush the wig when it is wet. Brush the wig be- fore shampooing to remove tangles and accumulated dirt. use bleaches, tints or permanent hair coloring on your rag. And do not use a color rinse unless you have been thoroughly trained to do so. If you must use a color rinse, first test the product on a strand of the wig. (This is always at your own risk.) wear your wig while working in a very hot kitchen, or near an open flame. Although dynel wigs are non-flammable, any excessive heat can distort and frizz the hairstyle.

Dr. Edward G. Sum- mers, 37, was one of 24 experts chosen to head sessions of the conference called by President Vixon. An expert in the field of anguage arts and reading, Dr. summers will lead the forum on he "right to read" program. He came to UBC from the Uni- rersity of Indiana in August, 969, in Hie 7 Si.

She told her listeners, most of them middle-aged, their af- fluence and status hinges on the earnings and position of their husbands. Jewish women are particu- larly oppressed because of re- ligious traditions, she said. "It is not by accident that Hamilton home-school meets Dec. 9 Hamilton Junior High School's home and school meet- ing will meet Wednesday at 8 p.m. and will concern the arts program. Topics include discussion of the objectives and aims of the arts program; demonstration of the various media used; display of art work by Grades 7, 8, and 9 of paintings, drawings, collage, prints, sculpture and construc- tion. A good attendance is request- ed. Refreshments will be serv- ed. some of the strongest women in the liberation movement are Jewesses." Asked if the move toward equality of the sexes would mean more marriage break- downs, Miss Kantaroff re- plied: MARRIAGES BETTER? "Marriages are breaking down now, but the marriages that last today are probably better than those that re- mained intact 50 years ago." A Toronto psychiatrist told the conference that many chil- dren who leave home to join a commune are looking for an "extended" family situation. Dr. Vivian Rakoff, director of post-graduate education at Toronto's Clarke Institute of Psychiatry, said children who live only with their parents may yearn for the older sys- tems in which grandparents and other relations all lived together. He said friends could play the role of relatives except that people move too much. "The average North Ameri- can family moves once in every five years. That's a hell of a lot of moving.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes Ann Landers "I hope you like call it 'saufeed moldy stuff from a bowl on the third shelf of the refrigerator'." WINNERS af O.O.R.P. TEA MRS. J. PA5KUSKI Door Prii. MRS. A. C. FlINT- Meney Doll MRS. G. NICOLSON- At long last PORTSMOUTH, England (CP) A romance which broke up S3 years ago had a happy ending when Albert Mayno and Hannah Griffin got married re- cently. Albert, 83, explained they parted originally because he thought Hannah, now 79, had too many boy-friends, ._ DEAR ANN LANDERS: My boyfriend and I had another fight. It could be our last. The fight was about the same old thing. Marijuana. I want Mike to quit smoking but he refuses. He also refuses to admit he is hooked. He insists the only thing wrong with pot is that it's illegal. I told him that's reason enough for me and if he doesn't knock it off we are finished. I can see a big difference in Mike when he is smoking but I can't get it across to him. He gets dreamy-eyed, lazy, doesn't want to talk or go anyplace just sits and stares into space. His grades are slipping and he isn't as neat about his personal appearance as he used to be. He doesn't see this either. Please, Ann, tell Mike what pot is doing to his life. He thinks you're sharp and I'll bet you can get through to him. Thanks Pot Hater DEAR P. H.: I can't tell Mike what pot Is doing to Ms life because pot does different things to different people. I'd have to know first what the guy smokes. Is it pure pot, or the weak stuff cut with alfalfa and hay? I'd have to know if he inhales and how often he smokes. Is it once a month or twice a day? The emotional stability of the smoker is another important factor. An unstable kid could get perma- nently zonked on grass. There are recorded cases of pot having triggered psychotic episodes. On the other hand, an emotionally healthy, well-balanced kid might get nothing more than a pleasant high. I'd have to know, too, why Mike smokes. Is it an escape? Is he doing it to be one of the "in" crowd? Is he experimenting? Or is he thumbing his nose at the establishment, his parents, or the law? Your statement that Mike's grades are slipping and he is not as neat about his personal appearance as he once was, is a tipoff that pot may be destroying his self-esteem and sapping his energy. This, according to the experts is one of the most damaging side effects. While some kids can smoke pot and remain functional, other kids run into trouble. Pot can kill motivation and make dreamers out of doers. And the real hazard is that no kid can tell in advance what it will do to him. Moreover, the person who is being damaged by pot is usually the last one to know. My position is that no teen-ager should fool around with a mind-altering substance of any kind booze, pills or drugs, soft OR hard. Especially if it's against the law. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a telephone receptionist who ;ries to be courteous to all callers. It's my job to make friends for the firm and I take my responsibilities seriously. It is also my job to put callers in touch with the proper department so I must ask specific questions. This morning a man wanted to speak to the president of the firm. I asked the gentleman Ms name and the name of his company. He replied, "My name is I am with My grandmother's maiden name was Jones. .1 wear a 42 long, part my hair on the left side and my birthstone is the ruby. Is there anything else you want U> I was so taken aback that I couldn't think of a snappy comeback to put him in his place. What should I have said? lUuca, N.Y. DEAR ITH: Your Job Is to handle the calls not put people in their place. During the course of a day you un- doubtedly speak to a wide variety of people. If you are doing your job well you ignore tho clowns and respond politely to everyone. That's the best put-down of all.
