(CP) MARGARET TRUDEAU predominantly Roman Catho- lic Republic of Ireland In embattled Northern Ire- land, however, women took on a sinister role as bitterness swelled against British troops trying to flush out nationalist guerrillas in the Catholic ghetto areas. The world was slacked when mobs of Lon- donderry housewives attacked teen-age girls who were dat- ing British soldiers, shaved their heads and poured tar or paint over tliem.

The members were attending a forum discussion on Cooking for One or Two, with home economist Alice Summers of Edmonton as moderator. And each shared his or her favorite suggestion to improve lonely meals. "Irish expounded one man. "There's the answer. Just put everything into a pot and let it cook." "An electric frying pan was another contribution to the most-important list. "Put meat and vegetables a.ll m at once and there's only one pan to wash." CUTS DOWN WASHING Several members extolled the merits of the one-pot meal. It was generally agreed that wash- ing too many dishes from one person's meal was a discourag- ing task. As well, members were enthu- siastic about prepared and semi-prepared convenience foods. They don't want them all the time, but the importance of being able to make the exact amount, as with instant pota- toes, mentioned, One member complained that she had a problem with trying to prepare rare-but-juicy roast beef when she had to start with such a small amount for one.

Senior citizens need clinic for health checks EDMONTON (CP) A screening clinic to perform basic health checks for senior citizens is needed in Edmonton, B e r n i c e Webster, a public health nurse, told a meeting of the Society for the Retired and Semi-Retired. Such a clinic was established j in Vancouver in she said. It was so successful there now are Over-60 Clinics in a number of Vancouver districts. The clinics lest blood pres- sure, eyes and general health and take blood and urine sam- i pies to test for anemia or diabe- I tes, which apparently becomes nlorc prevalent in older per- sons. Women are checked for can- cer of the or cervix and men are examined for prostate problems. Mrs. Webster said it is "terri- j bly sad" that the only time the doctor or public health nurse i sees an elderly person is during I 3 time of crisis. "We want to see you before you get sick." Olher services for senior citi- zens also are needed, she said. They include extended home- maker services for the elderly, more use of the mcals-on-whecls programs, a handy-man service for senior citizens, a telephone visiting service, regular public health nursing services and a j transporlalion s y s t e m that i makes it easy for the senior cit- izen lo get. around.
