Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHKIIJOE HttAlD Wwiwry 13, winy National Council of Women to promote status study OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Council of Women of Can- ada told the federal govern- ment it is promoting a detailed study among federated soci- eties and the public of recom- mendations of the royal com- mission on the status of women. In its annual brief to the gov- ernment, the council commend- ed the commission's report, tabled in the Commons in De- cember. The council is com- pos ed of federated societies across the country and is dedi- cated to the betterment of the family and state. The brief presented by a dele- gation, including Mrs. John Hnatyshyn of Saskatoon, the or- ganization's national president, also contained resolutions ap- proved at the council's annual meeting last summer. These included a request that the federal government support the establishment of informa- tion centres to inform Canadi- ans of government services available to them. The council also sublic pension plans. Present tension plans did not reflect the oicreasingly important finan- cial role women played. The council suggests women prisoners under federal juris- diction be confined in institu- tions nearer their families and that the government should ne- gotiate with the province to en- concern for the economic secu- rity of older women in its rec- ommendation that all persons should be able to participate in sure that acceptable standards are met. Most women serving sentences of two years or more now are housed m the Kingston, Ont., Prison for Women. The government is also called upon to enforce strictly present legislation onpollution and enact new laws when neces- sary. Screening studies PKU preventive STOCKHOLM (Reuter) Swedish scientists have devel- oped special screening tests and a "cry analyser" to minimize the chances of brain and nerve damage being undetected in newborn babies. The 10 days immediately fol- lowing birth are clinically the most crucial in a child's life, as any serious damage to the system which is pot detested THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Bawl out any little old ladies with bills yet LADIES' AUXILIARY CANADIAN LEGION RIHRO Wednesday at 8 p.m. W Air Conditioned Memorial Holl 1st Game 6lh Game SJO 4th Game Jackpot 8th Gome in 7 Number.

This applies to such curable i s e a s es as phenylkeUouria a brain affliction which an incapacitate a child men- ,ally and physically, central nervous system ailments and hromosome disorders such as mongolism. Doctors have had complete success with the screening ests, which cover about M per cent of babies bom in Sweden, curing all 31 infants found to have PKU since 1965. Mwe han a half-million tests have ieen carried out. A prominent expert, Dr. Hans Palmstierna, said the method is not only of great medical beoe- It but also has tremendous eco- nomic advantages. DETECTION INSTANT He says the screening Is esti- mated to cost about 80 cents for each of the children dealt with every year. Cries of a particular nature are frequently the first signs of abnormality, and those made by a child suffering from dis- eases affecting the central ner- vous system, or from such chromosome aberrations as mongolism, can be instantly picked up and identified on a sound spectograph. A Swedish-Finnish team of scientists has designed a small cheap "cry analyser" for mass production. The scientists say this ma- chine, about the size of a small radio, is capable of making con- tinuous, direct analysis of crying, the results of which can be interpreted on the spot by hospital personnel without spe- cial training. calendar Off of local SAY CHEESE Gloria Gingras, left, Patricia Mills, Cathy Tendler, Cindy Joevenazzo and Margaret Mooney, all Grade 8 students of Catholic Central High School have tackled a unique project in their home economics course- making cheese.

OTTAWA (CP) Tips to help the average driver avoid costly, unnecessary automo- bile repairs are offered in the Canadian Consumer. "The first- approach is to ask tie repair people to check the car says the article in the November-December issue of the magazine pub- lished bv the Consumers Asso- ciation of Canada. "Ask for a mitten, itemized estimate of what they feel is needed to restore your car to satisfactory running condi- tion." Most mechanics will try to convince a customer that he should have his car brought up to factory specifications, an operating condition that will approximate or almost duplicate brand new status, the article says. "To do that, the year round, would call for frequent tune- u p s, constant maintenance which the average motorist does not truly require. It is sufficient for him (or her) to keep the car as safe, as oper- ative as possible, but like other things, it can be over- done." Tire article stresses, how- ever, that drivers must real- ize the paramount importance of car safety. The tires, brak- ing system and cooling sys- tem should never be neg- lected. Replace the tires if they are getting bald. If the brakes do not seem to work properly and take more pressure on the pedal than normal, have the brake fluid checked. A cooling system which fre- quently overheats is also a danger sign. If the dealer says the brakes need relining, drums need tuning or other repairs are necessary, get a firm esti- mate irom him on the full cost of parts and approximate labor involved. Make it clear that any ex- tras must be discussed by tel- ephone and that otherwise Cleans Senate 50 years OTTAWA (CP) Elizabeth Leopold is looking forward to another 25 years of work as a cleaning lady. By that time she'll be 100. Mrs. Leopold, 75, has been a member of the Senate clean- tog staff for 50 years and a celebration in her honor re- cently on Parliament Hill was not a retirement party. "They couldn't get rid of me if they wanted she said. "I love this place." Mrs. Leopold loves it enough to accumulate more than 300 days of paid vacation time. "They finally convinced me to take a few days off last year but I got bored within a week and got on the phone to beg them to take me back and they did." Along with her Senate job Mrs. Leopold has two other jobs with private firms and keeps four roomers in her home. She puts to a 20-hour day starting at 4 a.m. "When you get to be my age, four hours of sleep a night is more than enough." payment for these will not be made. "One of the most common rackets that is practised by unscrupulous operators is that of the exhaust system repairs and the article says. "If you have the time and the desire, ask for the car to be put on the hoist. Have a look at the items and see for yourself if the tailpipe is badly rusted, corroded, falling apart. The muffler system may have bad rust areas that have been, or are, disintegrat- ing. Obviously these need re- placing." Ask for a guarantee wher- ever this work is done and read and understand it before leaving the repair area. 19th St. S.
