Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tiratdiy, Ftbruiry II, 1975 -The Herald- Family Quota Club gives women opportunity for service Heart-felt exercise The Y's Men's club pedalled 92.9 miles and emerged victorious at the 'do something for your heart' seven-team stationary bicycle race held at the YMCA last week. The race, seen as a way to promote fitness awareness, will probably become an annual Valentine's Day event at the Y. At left, Betty Donner, a member of the only women's team In the race, gets pointers from Y staffer Pat O'Brien. Above, Ray Malcom attaches heart monitoring device to Jorgen Maegaard prior to his pedalling stint COLIN SHAW photos When seeking worthwhile causes to sup- port, service clubs shouldn't overlook the "little projects that mean a lot to average people." That's the philosophy of Joan McMullin of Winnipeg, governor of the western district (the three prairie provinces) of Quota Club, an international association of business and professional women dedicated to service work. Mrs. McMullin says that although government's involvement in social aid programs means there are "not big dramatic things to be worthwhile small projects abound. In an interview while in Lethbridge to meet with members of the 27 member local Quota .Club, Mrs. McMullin said she "doesn't agree at all" with clubs who say, "what is there left for us to do? Government is looking after everything." "Government services often bypass one or two people or small groups with odd problems because they don't fit into the general scheme of she says. She gives the example of how her branch of the Quota Club in Winnipeg gave financial assistance to a boy who couldn't afford bus transportation to classes. "It wasn't a big project, it didn't get us a lot of she adds. "But without our help that student might not have finished his education." A venerable institution, the Quota Club is celebrating its 56th anniversary this year. It originated in the U.S. when several women decided they were tired of attending men's service club functions as somebody's wife and wanted a meaningful organization of their own. The group felt that being an aux- iliary to a men's club wasn't the answer because they would be expected work to raise funds, but would have little or no say in how the money would be spent. 'Quota' originates from Latin, meaning 'we share.' "We emphasize service says Mrs. McMullin. "Sure, we still have bake sales and hold teas to raise money. We end up washing dishes, but we pick our projects and govern our finances ourselves." She said although it is left up to each club to pick and choose its own interests, every group is encouraged to participate in Quota's 'unified service project' to aid the deaf, hard of hearing and: speech impaired. Wholesome food prices slashed under nutrition program Schools ban 6junk foods' from cafeterias MONTREAL (CP) The school council of the Island of- Montreal is eating holes in the theory that kids prefer junk food to wholesome nutrition. Seven school boards on the island have banned trash PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES WOO BLACKOUT (Played Until Wen) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Uptlllri) EVERY THUBS.-8 p.m. foods from school cafeterias, slashing prices for wholesome dishes with a subsidized food program and replacing candy and soft drinks in vending machines with milk and fruit. The result is that more than 30 per, cent of students now buy the nutritionally balanced hot plate (for less than 50 cents) and 90 per cent of both elementary and secondary pu- pils buy one or more single items (priced from five cents to 15 cents) such as fresh fruit or side salad, yogurt or cheese. Milk is the most pop- lar drink. Nicole Saint-Jean-Demers, chief dietitian of the Montreal Catholic school commission, said prices were cut only on items that were not automati- cally .popular. Miss Demers' own board is the largest participant with 59 schools and now is working on a nutrition program to edu- cate parents as well. Miss Demers helped devise the program, which evolved from a successful food sub- sidy system innovated by the Catholic commission in 1973.

Representatives stud- ied the proposal and voted funds last April. Six school boards adopted the program when schools opened in September. Another joined in November and the eighth is expected to follow suit next fall. Junk foods banned include any food made mostly of sugar, such as candy, pastries rich in sugar and fat, biscuits or cookies with more sugar than dough, popsicles, carbo- nated or soft drinks, peanuts, chewing gum, potato chips and deep-fried foods, fish and chips and doughnuts. Favorites such as ham- burgers, hot dogs, pizza, smoked meat and submarine sandwiches are permitted, but only as alternatives and only two or three times in a six- week-period. Ice cream, milk chocolate and jello are allowed and many parents have called Miss Demers to question why. The dietitian quoted the Or- der of Dentists research which she said proved that foods leaving particles in the teeth contribute most to tooth decay. Therefore ice cream and chocolate, which melt quickly in the mouth, are allowed while peanuts are banned. Children mourned the dis- appearance of sugar-laden foods at first, but after five months the majority in the schools seemed to have ac- cepted it. "Only the teachers are ask- ing for soft drinks said Miss Demers. The principal of one school in the Protestant School Board noted more children have been given permission by their parents to go out to '.'junk food stores around the corner" for lunch, as a result of the program. "Now what we need is a good, strong nutritional edu- cation program for said the principal. The Catholic board is work- ing on a program for parents and three separate school boards'elsewhere on the island are studying ways to enlighten them. JOAN MCMULLIN "We're stressing the importance of gaining new members all the she said. "And we realize we must try to attract younger women, to bring new attitudes to the group." On an international basis, the club has es- tablished a number of education projects abroad and supports United Nations com- mittees working with women or children. Whether or not Quota members embark on special projects to commemorate the UN's International Women's Year, 'depends on in- dividual club interests. The Lethbridge Quota Club, one of six in Alberta, concentrates on service to girls and has donated many furnishings to the YWCA. Members sponsor bingo parties in senior citi- zens homes, work for the Red Cross blood donor clinics, offer driving services for psy- chiatric patients and deliver dinners for the Meals on Wheels society. The club also assists local hearing and speech han- dicapped people. Helen Robins is local Quota Club president. The chemise firmly established Spring fashions 'loose9 NEW YORK (CP) The chemise, which began a comeback last fall, is firmly established and bigness is the word for spring. "But bigness is not auto- matically said Donna Karan of Anne Klein and Co. "Clothes must fit somewhere. The largest tent shape must capture the shoul- der, touch at the bosom and hips." Jerry Silverman described this season's chemise as "lightly controlled, subtly moving in below the bosom." One of the most popular styles combines the new shal- low square neck with big patch pockets. The chemise can have a shirtwaist look, as in Abe Schrader's beige poly- ester crepe with Moused sleeves and deep cuffs, or a late-day style, as in Morty Sussman's white-dotted sap- phire polyclu'ffon with two deep hem ruffles and a soft pussy bow. Some designers like the loose look with a wide cin- ched-in effect. Halston wraps, the waist of a brown-and- white striped crinkle cotton dress with a wide white- leather cummerbund, tied in front.

Medical Association.. The study involved 598 non pregnant stroke victims from 15 to 44 years old and two control groups matched for age and race. The women were interviewed about contraceptive practices, smoking habits and general medical history. This information was used to determine the risk of stroke in women of various ages and backgrounds, tak- ing into account such other factors as high blood pressure, smoking and migraine headache. In all categories, the relative risk of the less severe thrombotic, or blood-clotting, stroke and the more, severe hemorrhagic stroke were found to be significantly higher for oral contraceptive users than for non-users. In discussing the use of the contraceptives combined with hypertension, the report said both factors tend to dispose a woman toward possible stroke. However, the risk of thrombotic stroke for pill users with severe high blood pressure is twice that that of non-users with the same degree of hypertension. The study was done by 10 physicians and medical scientists from several universities and the National Institute of Health. The chairman was Dr. Albert Heyman of the Duke University Medical Centre. body-wrapping, front-tied soft sash, wide and snug on a Ming crepe de chine dress. Leo Nar- ducci's narrower sash wraps a float in lime crepe de chine with short turn-back sleeves. Short sleeves dominate the spring scene. Some are mere caps, others are elbow length and many are turned back into a wide, loose cuff. While the loose-flowing or belted chemise is the top trend-setter, there are still the gentle tent, smock, shirt and wrapped styles. The wrapped dress can even serve as a sort of coat. Stephen Burrows has a tunic wrap over pants and a V-neck sleeveless top. The two-piecer is a strong contender. New this spring are army-style fatigues, gen- erally in drab olive green or khaki. Dresses also come with matching fabric jackets, coats, capelets and scarves. Halston has brought back the mini, which he calls the skimp, but it remains to be seen whether it will catch on. Some young girls still wear- ing out their minis may pre- tend they're the new skimps but most girls and women are. wearing the knee length or below. Stripes are popular and prints are mostly small. Adele Simpson introduced what she calls Patterns in Motion, prints inspired by the needlework of the Renais- sance. Mrs. Simpson also likes mixtures of flowers and geo- metric motifs in multi-colored bands used vertically and horizontally in the same dress. Bill Blass uses geometries in a two-piece, crepe de chine dress in a patchwork effect of two sizes of zig-zag stripes. Albert Nipbn mixes small geometries with huge ara- besques and lush flowers. Leo Narducci likes bandana prints for a short shirt-smock dress and a long-skirted halter style.
