Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THI lETHBWDGt HBIAID TtiunJor, Mwusry For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor WEIGHT is a heavy subject these days what with reducing salons, Weight Watchers, and Take Off Pounds Sensibly springing up all over. It's not a topic to be taken lightly judging by the number of calls from sympathetic chubbies. The diets are fantastic. Grapefruit and eggs is probably the most popular, but don't try it if you Buffer from a lack of sugar, and start getting fuzzy about where you parked the car and the exact fi- gures of your telephone number. Jogging enthusiasts, of course, support ]oggmg and swimming fans tell you to get in the swim. Non- physical types can try picking up heavier books from the library but there's no guarantee it'll get you anywhere except perhaps a case of eyestram. Probably the safest way to lose weight and survive is to count calories. Backing away from the table as so many kind souls will advise, doesn't do it either After all there are all those hours in between 'lunch and supper, and after supper. You only fool yourself when you-skip-meals and snack. You might remember missing lunch but forget about the chocolate bar, pastry and nibbles as you tidied up after lunch. Just mention that you're considering a new shape for spring and the hints keep rolling in. Some of them are not especially helpful, just in recogni- tion of the great effort you are expending. _ Like the jovial co worker who surreptitiously drops little newspaper clippings on your desk. In bold black print the. lines scream out at you Take Off Ugly Fat. Absolutely And it takes a true friend indeed to spur you on to smaller, although better, things. That's the friend who comes to visit with the effects of a 14-pound weight loss clearly evident. That's motivation only women understand. One caller this week didn't want to talk weight, but about the Rotary Mardi Gras on Feb. 26. She was concerned that due to the western theme cos- tumes might be in the oldtime style of the pioneer, actually in effect still a costume. The theme is western but your rodeo togs or cowboy gear is 'quite suitable, almost eliminating costumes and allowing a casual and relaxing good time. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "You might as well make up your mind to like it tonight because you're also going to have it tomorrow as a left-over." Dicing by unit of weight allows consistent shopping CARNIVAL QUEEN Pamela King, first year radio arts student at the tethbridge Community College, was crowned Queen of the Chinook Winter Carnival Wednesday. She won out over eight other contestants to be crowned by Irene Arizono, 1970 carn- ival queen. Ceremonies were opened by Lome Begin, external vice-president of the tCC. Dr. C. D. Stewart cut the ribbon to officially declare the carnival open. Carol Wol'osuk, right) first year nursing, first princess; Sylvia Bonetti, left, college prep, second princess, and Judy Schmied, first year nursing, third princess, were presented with cor- sages-of pink sweetheart roses, and the queen received a large bouquet of red roses. OTTAWA greater proportion of women appli- cants for medical school are accepted than men and a greater proportion turn down offered places. But in the total number of women and L985 fall short in entering.medicine, a study of 1968-69 applicants shows. The study was made by Dr. Richard Nelson-Jones and Dr.-David G. Fish, former re- searcher and research direc- tor respectively of the Asso- ciation of Canadian Medical Colleges, and distributed-by the Association. Fifty-five per1 cent of the women applicants were ac- cepted and registered. Forty- eight cent of the men were. Although women rep- resented only 15.2 per cent of total applicants, they made up 15.4 per cent of accept- ances and 25.6 per cent of those who turned down an offered place.

FEMALE FIRST SOFIA (AP) Angelina Bal- tova is the first female captain of the Bulgarian merchant fleet, j the news agency BTA reported. The name her ship is Pliska. i testing procedures showed that the mean mark for women was 12 points higher for one of three tests, verbal ability, than the mean mark for men. Men, however, scored a mean mark of 23, nine points higher than women, in quan- titative1 abiUty and a science subtest. Dr. Nelson-Jones, now at University of Aston, Bir- mingham, England, and Dr. Fish, now professor of medi- cal sociology, University of Manitoba, set out to examine several: commonly-held opin- ions about medical school ad- missions. One was that women were discriminated against in fa- vor of men applicants. Another was that immigrant applicants w e r e discrimin- ated against and they found some supporting evi- donce here. Forty-seven per cent of ap- plicants who were Canadian citizens by birth were ac- cepted and registered in medical schools but only 38 per cent of naturalized Cana- dians and 22 per cent of landed immigrants won medical school places. The study says the idea that this was due to "lan- guage difficulties" is not borne out by the facts. Nat- uralized Canadians scored higher means in the verbal ability tests than native-born Canadians whose test means were little different from those of landed immigrants.

Prof. Ziegel's views are in- cluded in a personal brief sent to the special joint com- mittee of the Senate and House of Commons on con- sumer credit and prices. Meals on Wheels meet The Lcthbridge Society for Weals on Wheels will hold its annual meeting Monday at 8 >.m. at the Bowman Arts Gen- re. A review of the work of the society will be given and plans made for the coming year. The jublie has been invited to at- tend. IN SHOW BUSINESS TORONTO (CP) Antoinette Edwards, one half of The Mar ried Couple, the controversial Allan King movie, has gone into show business full time. Thfi firm which bears her name am which is operated from her home represents actors in con tract negotiations and relate matters. Antoinette, who i- bsing divorced from her hus band, Billy, said: "I had wantei to be in show business an being a personal manager is good way for me to accomplis this goal." He is a specialist in com- Arcial law at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University. The brief is supported by a study of three suburban su- permarkets conducted b y three Osgoode Hall law stu- dents. Results of the survey, which was limited to six products, were attached to the brief as an appendix. The survey found that: products cost less per unit of weight when pur- chased in a smaller size. lack of consistency in weight sizes makes price comparisons difficult for a hurried shopper. There were 18 different sizes of cereals, 17 different sizes of tooth- paste, and 15 sizes of powder- ed detergents. price per ounce var- ied by more than 900 per cent in some cases and never by less than 260 per cent. In his brief, Prof. Ziegel re- plies to criticisms of the Con- sumer Packaging and Label- ling Bill for being too strin- gent. "Nothing could be fur- ther from the he said. He cites sections of the Food and Drugs Act, the Textile Labelling Act and the Motor Vehicles Safety and others as having broader powers than the bill for pro- tecting consumers. He said the bill should be tightened to include uniform terminology describing dif- ferent weight sizes. "Terms such as jumbo, giant, family and regular sizes are used in the widest variety of contexts and with a disconcerting lack of mod- said Prof. Ziegel. "It is anomalous that the current bill should require the disclosure of weights and completely ignore the equal- ly important disclosure ol he says.
