With protests mounting over undesirable TV programming, it is gratifying to note CJOC is the only Canadian television sta- tion featuring a program like the Happy Hour Bible Club, ac- cording to Fred Filthaut, production manager. The enthusiastic public response to his Sunday noon program and the success of the Lethbridge Playgoers' production Priscilla Pringle's Predicament, televised in the fall, moved Mr. Filthaut to enter them in the annual Can Pro competition which was held this week in London, Ont. Sighting such rare birds as the red breasted sap sucker, generally seen on the west western tanager, usually found in the Waterton mountains, and the national warbler adds to the excitement of Naturalist Society members, accustomed to spotting familiar area inhabitants like starlings, English sparrows and chickadees, during quiet strolls through the river- bottom. According to president Helen Schuler, one of the rarest finds this past year, was a deep maroon colored coneflower, a mark- ed diversion from the deep, yellow bloom commonly associated with this delicate plant. Participants in the Girl Guide Travel and Exchange Program will be chosen in a random draw on Thinking Day, Feb. 22. To qualify, one must be 14 years of age and not older than 19 years before July 1 and have been an active Guide, Ranger or Cadet since September, 1974. Applications are available from the area office. The program will include 864 girls, travelling in groups of 16 and covering a total of three million miles. The Lethbridge Playgoers will sponsor a workshop on stagecraft and make up Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Bowman Arts Centre. Jenny Diluent of Edmonton will be the instructor. For further information telephone 328-0131. Norma Shologan, Coaldale writer, urges viewers to write to Pierre Juneau, head of the Canadian Radio Commission demanding more and better children's programs and writing letters of commendation to TV stations featuring good programs. Margaret Moses, president of the Fort Macleod branch of the Kidney Foundation, Don Kirk, president of the Lethbridge branch and Catherine Cranstoun, secretary, attended a one day Kidney Foundation seminar in Edmonton, Thursday. Catherine Cranstroun, regent for the Dr. F. H. Mewburn chapter of the IODE, which, with The Sir Alexander Gait chapter, co sponsors the receptions following the monthly citizenship court, would like to see the re activation of the presentation of greeting cards to each new Canadian. The prac- tice of card giving was discontinued two years ago, lest it be used as a political football with parties using citizen lists to ac- quire names of would be members. With the dispensing of this gesture, Mrs. Cranstoun believes some of the personal touch at Citizenship Court is missing. Phil Blakeley chief chef at the annual APTS pancake dinner, slated for the McKillop United church hall Saturday, will serve hotcakes, oozing in syrup at noon and again from 5 to' 7 p.m. More than 200 diners are expected to patronize this pop: ular event. Dale Kaminski, 15, is one of the 10 stick boys from the ACT'S Bantam Rep's All-Star Hockey Team volunteering to assist with the Winter Games' hockey events. Herman Moltz is the promising team's proud coach. Proceeds from the spring dance at the Civic Centre, March 21, sponsored by the 74 members of the Ladies' Auxiliary to the Minor Hockey Association will help with the innumerable ex- penses associated with such an organization. Shirley Bourassa will convene the Easter Bake sale slated for March 27. The Taber Swing Kings will be featured at the Handicapped Club's benefit dance, Feb. 14 at the Polish Hall.

Breast milk protects infants NEW Results of a research program at Rubies Hospital indicate that breast milk con- tains ingredients which protect infants during the stressful period immediately after birth. The program was described in The Stethoscope, published by the Columbia-Preshyterian Medical Centre. It tested new- born rats, which are suscepti- ble to necrotizing enlerocolitis, a tissue- destroying inflammation of the small' intestine and colon. The condition also affects be- tween one and four per cent of premature and low-weight hu- man babies. The rats were divided into two groups. One was fed an artificial rat-milk formula, the other was breast-fed and both groups were deprived of oxygen for short periods All the formula-fed rats died of enterocolitis. None of the breast-fed rats was affected. Doctors conducting the study said breast milk offers complete protection to stress- ed rat babies if it is given dur- ing the first 24 hours of life or after no more than 24 hours of initial formula feedings. They said rat breast milk is rich in antibodies and macr- ophages, large wandering cells that swallow bacteria. And that human breast milk also contains these ingredients. "It seems a shame that in our wisdom in p'roinoting for- mula feeding we have elected to throw those goodies said Dr; Thomas Santulli, head of pediatric surgery at Babies Hospital. "I would hope we will turn back the clock and encourage the use of breast feeding as a result of this study." Optn Thurs. and Fri. til 9 p.m. Camm's Shoes 403 5th Strwt S. checkups 'worthless' VANCOUVER (CP) Many physicians feel the usual routine physical ex- amination is worthless and mass screenings may prove to be the wave of the future, says a preventive medical con- sultant. Dr. Dave Chisholm said the conventional physical exam rarely uncovers conditions the patient wasn't already aware of. In the future, people would make periodic Visits to a health centre to get a battery of tests to nip diseases in the bud and to warn them of risks in their life-style. Many doctors have questioned the cost and effec- tiveness of mass screenings. Dr. Chisholm said it is im- portant, because of cost, to determine what tests a person should have. Some were more likely to contract specific dis- eases than others. He said one example of what can't be afforded is- a skull xray screening program which costs for each case of brain disease dis- covered. The doctor said an example for a possible solution to this problem might be to x-ray women for breast cancer who are in a high-risk group, such as childless post-menopausal women. He said personal habits must be looked at on an in- dividual basis. For example, exercise might be vital to a group predisposed to heart disease, yet less important to others. An important roadblock to screening programs is the fact that it is difficult to measure their effectiveness without a full-scale trial which may take many years and millions of dollars to com- plete. Afflictions such as venereal disease, which has a definite cure are among the best targets for screening. Dr. Chisholm said that in or- der to be effective, screening programs would have to be consolidated into a facility like a health centre. "The whole approach is uncoordinated and fragmented. There's one place for chest you go to the physician's office for a Pap smear and blood pressure and you get your blood work done somewhere else." Rather than make mass screenings mandatory, Dr. Chisholm suggested economic enticements might be used to motivate people.
