BILL GROENEN photos as editor of princesses c the college re Monica FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH Heart research identifies risks JOHN B. ARMSTRONG, M.D. Canadian Heart Foundation One of the most important dividends from the vast amount of research in heart and blood vessel disease has been the identification of certain "risk factors" influencing a person's likelihood of suffering a heart attack. Sex is one of those factors and is one of three factors over which an individual has no control. The others are age and heredity. Happily for the fair sex, the very fact of being female affords them a considerable measure of protection from heart disease, llntil they reach the age of 45, women suffer heart attacks at one-sixth the rate of men of similar age, although the gap narrows to one-half by age 55 and continues to narrow later in life.

Telephone 328-9231 Or Drop In At Simpsons-Sears, Centre Village Mall For Complete Details lives, the heart attacks suffered by women are less severe. With high blood pressure the pattern is somewhat different. Until age 44 women develop high blood pressure less frequently than men. Between 44 and 55 the frequency is about the same. At 55 it rises above the rate for men and stays there. However, women seem to be better able to withstand most of the complications of high blood pressure - heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and hypertensive heart disease. There are, of course, exceptions to every rule, and the above information should not encourage women to lose sight of the importance of protecting themselves against high blood pressure. They should not neglect medical check-ups to make sure blood pressure remains at a safe level. If it has a tendency to rise, proper medication and medical supervision can usually keep it under control. The ability to control high blood pressure has been one of the most significant advances of medical science. Women should take care of their hearts by keeping their bodies and minds young. They should keep slim by maintaining a sensible diet and by remaining active. By retaining a young outlook on life women can avoid some of the msntal stress that often comes with advancing years.

Walking at a fast clip is also a good way to keep the body in tone. Sauntering is useless and the objective should be to work up to a snappy pace gradually. Once the right stride is attained, there is a general feeling of well-being and the momentum is exhilarating. In addition to guarding j against heart disease in themselves, women cau do much toj minimize the possibility of these killer diseases in their husbands and children. Housewives should plan their menus around sensible diets. Such a diet should include skim, fortified milk; less beef, pork and lamb and more fish and chicken; margarine instead of butter; fewer egg yolks in their regular diet and cooking. While diet is important, there are additional ways women can h&lp their families maintain healthy hearts. A serene, stress-tree home environment and enough rest and relaxation for all are good starting points.

By GREG McINTYRE EDMONTON - Social Credit MLAs turned in a spirited performance on the first regular day. of the 1973 legislature Friday behind their new house leader Jim Henderson. It's unlikely the new party leader. Werner Schmidt, who w a t c h ed the proceedings from the gallery, will have a noticeable effect on the coming 10-week session. Mr. Schmidt, who replaced Harry Strom last month as party leader, discusses strategy with the 24-member Soc-red caucus before daily sessions of the assembly. But Mr. Schmidt, former vice-president of Lethbridge Community College, is a political novice without a seat in the legislature and preliminary indications are his influence in the coming months will be minimal. Most of the opposition front bench were on their feet in-, stantly when the question period opsKed. Grant Notley, the lone New Democratic Party MLA, got the show started with queries about the fate of miners laid off at Grande Cache. It turned into a better than average question period a.s Premier Lougheed and his ministers were pelted with questions about a variety of touchy issues including energy policies, use of the strap hi schools and the pending property tax legislation. Mr. Henderson waited until the question period ended to drop his bombshell - a motion for an adjournment in the throne speech debate to discuss the government's improper use of the RCMP to gather information about three Slave Lake residents who had criticized government policies. In a ruling that prompted audible grumbling from Mr. Henderson, Speaker Gerry Amerongen said the Slave Lake affair could adequately be considered during the throne speech debate. It was a bold start for the new house leader in the centre seat in the opposition front bench - the seat occupied by Mr. Strom during the last sitting. Mr. Strom was absent from his new chair at the end of the front bench. He is expected back this week' from a vacation-church convention holiday in Arizona. The danger of Mr. Henderson's strong leadership is that the caucus will not need Mr. Schmidt and he may be destined forever to watch the show from the sidelines. It's bard to imagine the quiet - mannered academic making himself heard over the stronger voices of Sc-cred MLAs like Walter Buck, Gordon Taylor and Albert Lud-wig. With the strong showing by the party's old guard at last month's leadership convention, some are now saying that Mr. Taylor, the veteran of the legislature, could have won the leadership if he'd campaigned harder., Grumbles from some of the other five areas about Southern Alberta becoming the 1975 'Canada Winter Games site are being heard. The Red Deer version was that Lethbridge and vicinity doesn't get enough snow. Alberta's perky minister of culture, youth and recreation, H o r s t Schmid, suggested Southern Albertans gather snow fall statistics and circulate them to the grumblers. Other snow grumbles involve the new Alberta Off-Highway Vehicle Act which imposes stricter insurance, licencing and safety regulations on snowmobiles and other all-terrain machines. Snowmobilers are expected to mass in the provincial capital next weekend to discuss grievances about what is becoming the number one family winter activity. In the legislature Tuesday a motion from Charlie Drain (SC - Pincher Creek-Crows- nest) seconded bv Ed Benoit (SC - Highwood) will ask for figures to back up the stricter regulations on the province's 30,000 registered snowmobilers. ' The MLAs want to know the number of snowmobile thefts and whether snowmobilers were adequately consulted before the 1972 law was imposed. The "cake and crumbs" complaint, from the civil service is sure to become opposition fodder during the session. "We were promised cake and all we received is crumbs" says a newspaper advertisement by the Civil. Service Association of Alberta The open letter to Premier Lougheed charges that during the August 1971 election campaign unhappy civil servants were promised legislation "which would give the members the saime basic baa-gaining lights enjoyed by organized labor in the prov-. inee." Alas, in a television interview the now premier said in February he does not want government employees with "The full right to strike and the full bargaining author- ity." In a lighter - actually darker - vein, very conspicuous with their Honolulu tans at the opening cer-.emonies at the legislature this week were the wives of Premier Lougheed and Inter-government Minister Don Getty. The throne speech itself got less raves. One disillusioned newsman . groaned "this has/ got to be--a new low in throne speeches . . . when the government has to pay a tribute to forest fire fighters." The actual passage from,, the speech was "a forest fire , fighters recognition service will be organized with the purpose of recognizing the., special skills and dedication :- Feed mill to open Oct. 1 Construction will start April 1 on a $700,000 feed mill in the old industrial park area in North Lethbridge. Owned by Southern Albertans, Gainrite Feeds Ltd. will begin processing animal feed about Oct. 1. Henry Dueck, president of the company, said today about 40,000 tons will be processed the first year. Employing 15 persons the first year, Gainrite will pro- vide cattle, hog and poultry feed for Alberta and British Columbia markets within a 100-mile radius of Lethbridge.
