Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta is LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, December Cartoon sparks fireman comment Child, flammables deadly mix By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer Many parents with toddlers may have chuckled at a car- toon The Herald carried Dec 2. But Lethbridge Fire Marshall Doug Kometz stopped laughing a lot sooner than the rest of us. He says the cartoon, depicting a child 'playing' with a can of paint, might appear to condone several hazardous household practices. A child should never be left alone, says Mr. Kometz, not even within calling distance. And flammable materials should no't be stored in basements, particularly near exits" or stairways. Last Oct. 15, a 30 month old Lethbridge child died following a city fire. The youngster had been playing alone downstairs, as il- lustrated in the cartoon, when he knocked over a can of gas- oline stored under the stairway. The fumes spread, were ig- nited by the furnace pilot light and in the ensuing fire the child was badly burned. He died later in hospital. Mr. Kometz says special care should be taken in storing gasoline. It only takes a small spark to ignite fumes from spilled gas. The substance should be kept out of children's reach at all times. Gasoline, oil based paint and turpentine should never be stored under a stairway because of the ferocity with which they burn. If a fire were to start in a basement where paints were kept under the stairs, flames would block the exit. And if a child were trapped in the basement alone, location of the intense centre of the fire by the stairs would make rescue difficult, Mr. Kometz emphasizes. Paint will not ignite as easi- ly as gasoline, but will burn almost as fiercely. Water based paints will not burn at all. Doctors should become more like hockey captains "PJ! You're awfully quiet! Is everything all VANCOUVER (CP) Doc- tors are going to have to become more like the cap- tains of hockey teams and less like infantry captains, a seminar on health care in Canada here has been told. Dr. J. F. McCreary, former dean of medicine at the University of British Colum- bia, said doctors cannot func- tion as captains of the health infantry. As in hockey, "there are other members of the team often playing the most impor- tant Dr. McCreary said. Dr. Hector Gillespie, presi- dent of the B.C.

Addressing the Saskatchewan Women's Liberal Association, Mrs. Appolloni said she received little support from female voters in her riding. "The feminists didn't support me because I wasn't radical enough, and the moderates whose support I wanted didn't support me because they didn't think I would have a chance. Mrs. Apolloni, now in her first term in political office, said she hopes more women will seek federal political office. However, she said women candidates must overcome the tendency to undersell themselves. "Don't say that you're just a she advised. She said women tend to be more direct than their male counterparts in political office, and "refuse to submit three or four pages before we get to the point." U of C nursing head seeks involved nurses "Twenty-five cents? These things make more money an hour than I did on my first The University of Calgary's new school of nursing direc- tor, Marguerite Schumacher, has her own ideas about the role of nurses in society, and how they should be prepared for that role. "I believe nursing has to be more assertive in areas other than just attending the she says.

"Some small communities WITH SOLID-STATE won't get holly this Ron Nutter, Vancouver Island's largest grower, says. Mr. Nutter ships about 000 pounds of holly around Canada each year. Vancouver Island growers say they produce 90 per cent of the Canadian crop.

Mr. Nutter said the holly is light but the way it must be packaged takes up too much space. ty welfare. They should be concerned with what has happened to their patient to put him in his predicament in order to prevent future similar occurrences." Miss Schumacher says she wants the U of C nursing program to produce "com- munity people who are able to deal effectively with health problems and are knowledgeable about com- munity resources. Miss Schumacher readily admits that the U of C school of nursing will probably never be able to prepare graduates to meet all the demands of today's work. However, in order to assess the nursing program and to keep it current, a follow up program has been initiated. "This involves discovering the kinds of positions U of C graduates obtain and how they have been accepted by their Miss Schumacher explains. Further, to keep nurses academically up to date, the school of nursing is working with U of C's division of con- tinuing education in offering conferences, seminars and non credit evening courses for graduate nurses.

Another continuing educa- tion project the school of nurs- ing is working on this year in- volves the University of Alberta. Although the U of C does not yet offer a part time degree program, this new project will allow practising registered nurses working in Calgary to pursue a U of A nursing degree on a part time basis at the U of C campus. Courses not offered at the U of C will be taught by of A instructors. "We've started this program already with one course having been offered last session and two more offered in this winter's says Miss Schumacher. Miss Schumacher stresses the U of A continuing educa- tion program is being provid- ed on an interim basis only and does not eliminate the need for the U of C to even- tually develop a similar program of its own. Before coming to U of C in September, Miss Schumacher was the coordinator of the division of health sciences at Red Deer College, Red Deer, a position she held for one year. Prior to that she had been chairman of the nursing program at the college since 1968. Miss Schumacher received her nursing training in Win- nipeg at the Victoria Hospital. From there she proceeded to Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, for a BSc in nursing. She also holds an MA and an EdM from Colum- bia University, New York. She is the author of numerous research monographs and articles on teaching approaches in nur- sing, published in both Cana- dian and American magazines, and recently com- pleted a two year term as president of the Canadian Nurses' Association. "doctors are anxious to co operate with other professionals." But you also need a captain who will take the respon- sibility if the patient gets worse or Dr. Gillespie added. Dr. McCreary said in a later interview that with a change in status, doctors can expect a lower pay, "but I don't think physicians' income will go down very much." Other health professionals, including nurses and social workers, should be paid more and doctors can expect a cut as new systems of paying for medical care are introduced, he said. "Other health professionals differ from physicians in their training but they do not differ in their professionalism or in their dedication to the care of Dr. McCreary said in his address. "The collaboration which exists in hospitals is, in general, based on a hierarchical structure in which health professionals other than dentists and' physicians do what they are told to do by their masters." True co operation is rare but sometimes occurs in operating rooms and intensive care teams, Dr. McCreary said. Terms like paramedical and allied health professional im- ply a dominant role of the physician, he said, but other health professionals have skills not possessed by the physician. Nurses, doctors and others could take parts of their un- dergraduate training together, he said, as a step towards achieving the new equality. Edmonton man wins Rhodes A 22 year old Edmon- tonian, John Irving Bell, has been chosen as Alberta's Rhodes Scholar for 1975.
