Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
The homemaker f Mondoy, February 5, 1973 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - \% By MARILYN TATE.YI District Home Economist Is it true we are killing our Toed by overrefining? Let's look at the facts: Q-What kinds of food do we refine? A-Mainly, cereals, sugars and fats. Q-Why refine? A-To ensure food is wholesome. Without refining, oils rapidly develop off-flavors and become unfit for consumption. -To increase shelf life. Because it is almost free of fat, refined white flour is known for its keeping qualities. -To enhance appearance and flavor. Unrefined sugar would mask the delicate flavor of fruit desserts and meringues. -To piwide a broader variety of products. Some enjoy a hsarty whole wheat breed while others prefer a crusty white French stick. Q-Is it true the refining process removes most of the nutrients? A-The refining process does remove some of the nutrients, however, those considered most important are put back during the enrichment stage. Q-Who controls food enrichment and how? A-Enrichment is controlled by the Health Protection Branch whose policy is to allow or make mandatory the enrichment of any food when there is a nutritional justification for it, i.e. - if there is an insufficient intake of that nutrient, as iodine in table salt; - when a product replaces a food normally an important source of essential nutrients in the diet, as margarine for butter: - when a vitamin o r mineral is removed from a staple food in the course of good manufacturing practice, as enriched flour. To make the enrichment meaningful and to prevent an excess, limits are set on the mini m u m and maximum amounts of specified nutrients which may be added to a reasonable daily intake of that fowl. Q-Could the increased consumption of refined foods constitute a nutritional problem in the future? A - Without enrichment, it could. In the future it may even be necessary to add nutrients to products such as snack foods if they are used to replace more bacic foods. Since there is increasing interest in these foods, a re-evaluation of the enrichment policy is being considered. Q-Are the synthetic vitamins and minerals added during enrichment really as good and beneficial as the natural ones? A-Yes, synthetic vitamins have the same desirable effects as the natural ones. These are the facts by which to hang the overrefining claim!

"1 never did see one that didn't understand a slap in the mouth." The remark, lately revived for purposes of a movie publicity campaign in London, is not the kind of classic cinematic line likely to amuse Mrs. Erin Pizzey, founder of reform campaign now beginning to make an impact here. Mrs. Pizzey, 33, is out to Parents elect officers MRS. TILLEY ROBERTS ; . . president The Galbraith Home and School recently elected the new executive for the 1973-74 term of office. Mrs. Til ley Roberts w a s elected president, with Mrs. Tina Manning secretary and Mrs. Carol Harrold, treasurer. Past president is Mrs. Mar-ley Nyrose. Social convenors for the year will be Mrs. Marion Arneson, Mrs. Judy Bossert. Mrs. Heather Gray and Mrs. Diane Kopp. Mrs. Alfreds Kimura will handle publicity. expose the evils of wife-beating, which she contends is a common and particularly brutal feature of life in modern Britain. Her campaign is based in ths West London disttrict of C h i s w i c k, where its first achievement has been too provide shelter for women on the ran from dangerously belligerent husbands. Already the organization called Chiswick Women's Aid has won a reputation for forthright action. On one occasion the group threatened to demonstrate ouside a violent husband's work place, with signs that would proclaim his wife-beating habits to fellow-workers. The wife has not been beaten since- But such happy endings don't compensate for the continuing misery of other wives. "I'm not talking about the odd slap," said a school teacher who turned up at the aid centre with her young daughter. "My husband hammers me with anything that comes to hand, and three times he has tried to strangle me." The Chiswick movement, Mrs. Pizzey's brainchild, first turned an old dwelling into an advice bureau and eventually into a refuge for frightened or battered wives seeking an escape from brutality at home. Chiswick Women's Aid also is preparing the groundwork for a concerted effort to win complete legislative prot.ee-ion for women against marital violence. WANTS INQUIRY Mrs. Pizzey wants the government to set up a commission on wife beating. The law as it now stands makes no distinction between assault on a wife and an attack against anyone else, she maintains. A woman may take her husband to court, with fairly good results. But, said Mrs. Pizzey, the aggrieved' wife may find herself having to wait three months for a case to be heard. "Who is going to take out a summons while living in the house with a violent same man On opened, a woman turned up and sought shelter-even 9" Mrs. Pizzey said, the day the centre home waiting to see what sort, of mood the man is in when he gets back from work." "A cup of tea set down wrongly in front of him will though she had to content her- i start him off." self with a mattress on the floor. Mrs. Pizzey and her helpers question what they term a reluctance on the part of authorities to interfere in marital matters- "The police, not the wife, should enforce t he law and prosecute," said one of the Chiswick group. In the case of a wife-beater, "they should take that man from that house and lock him up and keep him there until the court case." The w oman's aid campaigner added: "If the man has no history of violence, he should be allowed out on bail but there ought to be a High Court injunction to stop him molesting the family." Mrs. Pizzey divides wife-beaters into two categories- the mentally-ill and the sadist. Some women and children, she asserted, "sit in fear at A great disadvantage for anyone trying to expose the full extent of wife-beating in modern society is the fact that many of the victims shrink from talking openly about their domestic crises. "I would rather have died than say my husband beat me," confessed one 25-year-old mother finally obliged to look for help. Yet many of those who go to the house for accommodation ultimately return home. Some are referred to legal experts for further advice or to hear about their rights-occasionally for the first time- from volunteers at the centre. They also receive a key to the house on Belmont Terrace so that they can come and go as they please. "These women need a breathing space, time to re cover and think things out," said Mrs. Pizzey.

Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell me how to get out of this, The other evening my husband and I were with a group of friends of long standing. I have always been com-iortC'hle with these people and didn't, feel that f ueeded to weigh my words. The conversation turned to Ann Landers' column. One of the women said she was amused at all the furor created by the cat-lovers and the cat - haters. Then someone mentioned pets and I made the comment that I was amazed at how frequently people resemble their pets. One of the women said. "Are you suggesting that I look like a Pekinese?" I re- ? 1 DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1" want to say a word or two about the column you wrote against motorcycles. I confess I cannot be objective because our only son was killed on a motorcycle two years ago. He was just 16. I don't think my husband will ever get over it. I know you must have received a raft of letters from cycle enthusiasts Who are annoyed with you. You probably had some complaints from people who make a living from the motorcycle business (It's a billion dollar industry, you know). But. I did want to thank you and send on this clipping from United Press Internationa! which backs you to the hilt. 5 was especially interested in the statement by the National Safety Council: "The fatality rate of all motor vehicles in 1971 was 4.7 deaths plied, good naturedly. "As a matter of fact, you do have a cute little pug nose, large, expressive brown eyes and sandy - colored, curly hair." The woman became insulted and 1 had to defend myself. Did I say something that, could be considered unflattering? I'll leave it to you. -Loose Lip In Lubbock DEAR LIP: Funny you should have made that remark. I have often thought the same thing myself. Anyone who doubts that pets resemble their owners should stand on the street and watch the dog-walkers. fP.S. I don't believe this is something they like to be told, however, so keep it to yourself.) per 100 million miles travelled. For motorcycles the rate was 20 deaths per 100 million miles." In other words, you are five times safer in an automobile than on a motorcycle. Here's another statistic: The motorcycle death toll rose from 1,151 in 1965 to 2,300 in 1971. Again thanks, Ann. Keep hammering away. If you save just one life it will be well worth it. - Lonesome Mom, DEAR MOM: You are right about the mail. I received an avalanche of blistering criticism from motorycle enthusiasts who insist that a motorcycle is not dangerous until some idiot gets on it. This is the same cockeyed logic I get from the gun lovers who tell me "guns don't kill people-people kill people." It was good of you to write and I thank you. Ms. okayed by Senate BOSTON (AP) .- The term Ms.' is entering official journals of the Massachusetts Senate this year. Senator Anna Buckley (Dem. Brockotn) requested that she be referred to in the journals-the official record of Senate proceedings-as Ms. Buckley. Senate clerk Norman L Pid-geon has honored her request. and Senate journals referring t Ms. Buckley have begun rolling off the press. Other women legislators continue to be referred to as Miss or Mrs. Ms. Buckley said she adopt- ed the preference because it was "part of the tenor of tha times." 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX BINGO Mon., Feb. 5th JACKPOT $155 - 56 NOS.
