Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Non-breathing occurs during sleep Crib death a killer EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Sometimes, for no known reason, little Anna Ritola's brain forgets to tell her lungs to breathe. And if someone were not around to tickle her foot or touch her face to remind her, she would quickly and quietly die. Anna suffers from sudden infant death syndrome commonly known as crib death, an almost always fatal condition that kills some infants in the United States annually. SIDS is usually fatal because its prime symptom, apnea or non-breathing, occurs during sleep. Diagnosis usually is by autopsy. Anna may be the only living child with SIDS. She is seven months old and thriving and her pediatrician, Dr. Jerome Dayton, says each day of her life increases the chances she'll make it. He says if she can get through her first year she may be home free. Anna is probably alive today because she caught a cold when she was three weeks old. Dr. Dayton said that induced the apnea while she was awake. Her second piece of luck was that her mother, Sandi Ritola, is head nurse of Sa- cred Heart Hospital's intensive care unit and was able to recognize the symptom and get immediate help "I was holding her in my arms and when she stopped breathing, there was no mis- taking said Mrs. Ritola. Anna was admitted to Sacred Heart and five times during her first night she stopped breathing long enough to set off the alarm of an electronic heart monitor taped to her chest. "The child has periodic episodes when the pulse will slow down and she'll stop said Dr. Dayton. "It results from faulty regulation in the respiratory section of the brain. There is no definite cause for this. The exact reasons are unknown." "She's very gradually he said. "At first the periods of apnea would occur any time. Now they come only when she has a cold." Anna is home now. She lives much of her life with the heart monitor attached to her chest. Mrs. Ritola works only part-time and her husband Donald has altered his work hours so that one of them is always with Anna and always awake to listen for the buzzer that signals Anna is not breathing. Usually, only a touch is needed to start her breathing again "I know what to do if touching Anna doesn't says Mrs Ritola. "But time is so important. She should be all right if we get her breathing within three minutes by artificial respiration and then on a respirator. But I don't go much further than that. I kind of block it out of my mind. "We live each day at a time Right now we're only buying time and hoping she'll grow out of it." OF QUALITY SAVINGS Stalo women create story in symbols of birds, stars VANCOUVER (CP) Forty Stalo women of the Salish Indian tribe are weaving a panorama of the lives and history of their people Less than 80 miles from Vancouver, a true commune works at its craft creating a story in symbols of thunderbirds, stars and swallows. Martha James of the Sardis River people said she is the only one who can weave the single surviving tale passed down through generations of storytellers. Other weavers use the symbols to tell incidents of daily life but woven into her rug is the story of how at sunrise, hi the days before the white man came, the coastal Salish raided the salmon fishing grounds near Hope's twin peaks The raiders massacred the small village there, leaving only an old woman and a small boy. Vowing revenge the boy went into the forest where he THE BETTER HALF developed great hypnotic powers. He grew to the age of IS and the coastal Indians attacked again but this time he was ready for them. HYPNOTIZED RAIDERS As the war canoes beached, he hypnotized the raiders into a trance. Then, wading into the river, he clubbed all but two of them to death. The survivors warned the other coastal Salish never to attack the village again. A diamond symbolizes peace and understanding; a butterfly means everlasting life; a raven depicts slyness. The symbols are woven in rugs, wall hangings, belts, sweaters and saddle blankets for sale at the Salish Weavers store in Sardis. The Indians used to collect wool shed by goats high in the mountains. Josephine Kelly said the tribe used to have herds of whitish, long-haired dogs. The wool and the dogs' hair was spun on a primitive spindle into yarn for packstraps, By Barnes blankets and dancing aprons. The art of weaving'was nearly lost when the Hudson's Bay Co. offered a crimson blanket for the price of GO salmon, said Elizabeth Herring. But the artistry of the Salish weavers survived. Now the fleece is dyed a myriad of soft, rich hues extracted from the natural earth colors of vegetables, mosses and barks Polish club elects executive A new executive has been elected for the Polish Veterans Club of Lethbridge.
