Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, February 23, 1974 -The Herald Family Phantom exists to compare human shapes VANCOUVER (CP) The Phantom is five-foot-seven, weighs 142 pounds, and exists Only as statistics and an outline on paper. The Phantom, which repre- sents the bodily characteristics of every man and woman, will eventually be used in comparing human shapes. Its parents are Dr. William Ross, an associate professor in the department of kinesiolpgy at Simon Fraser University, and Noela Wilson, a former teaching assistant now doing doctoral work in the United States. Dr. Ross explained that the Phantom still is only in its for- mative stage, but will probably be made public within five years. It took five to 10 years to develop the common denominator of human figures because it was difficult to detail a precise model. Dr. Ross said the Phantom was developed to help ease the problem involved in obtaining exact measurements of the human body and relating the proportions of two persons, or of a growing child. He became dissatisfied with the established method of measuring the human body, through which proportions of various parts of the body are expressed as a ratio. SINGLE SCALE "The trouble with this method is that you have to recall numerous statistics of THE BETTER HALF what is considered normal. But if the comparison is made against the Phantom then you can use a single scale for all parts of the body." Scientific measurement of the body is important especially in relation to athletics, physical ability, detection of diseases that affect growth, design of furniture and clothing, Dr. Ross said. The Phantom includes the characteristics of Asians and Negroes, but the result is pri- marily Caucasian "with a bias towards the U.S. military." The first step in comparing two physiques is to scale both to the Phantom's height and through their scaled proportions a precise variance can be recorded. Dr. Ross would like to use his model to analyze growth statistics of about 100 boys and 100 girls obtained in Saskatchewan over a 10-year period by Dr. Donald Bailey of University of Saskatchewan. The Phantom could also be used to detect variances in works of art, such as Michela- ngelo's deliberate elongation of the forearms in the statue of David. Dr. Ross said the Phantom was first presented at confer- ences last fall in Belgium and West Germany, "but it will be another nine months before there is an official publication and perhaps five years before it's included in textbooks for general distribution."

The needle and thread relaxer is Doris Tarrant of Port Lee, the only woman commercial bank president in New Jersey. She's become something of a heroine of women's lib since she became president of the Peoples Bank of Ridgewood late last year. "I've received a lot of women's lib letters. The writers will say, 'It must be great to work for a company that recognizes women.'" Miss Tarrant said her fans don't know she labored 10 to 12 hours a day to get where she is, and her working day is still a good 10 hours. On a recent Sunday, she was invited to a cocktail party. "Instead, I sewed all day. I made two dresses to give away as gifts. I think because I have to concentrate on it, it relaxes me." She began life "over 40 years ago" in Ridgefield Park, the only child of her father, who had a trucking business and dabbled in real estate, and mother who never sought a career other than housewife. She graduated from secretarial school and became a top-flight secretary, working 11 years for the late Benjamin Fairless while he was treasurer of U.S. Steel, and after his retirement as head of the company when he was president of the American Iron and Steel Institute.

Local wine industry spokes- men say it is going to be a top money-making item. Prospects are for more imports and more domestic production of wine. A splash of advertisements on trains, subways and streets in Tokyo urges Japanese to try it and enjoy. Introduced to Japan in the 16th century by Portuguese and Spanish missionaries, wine was first considered a blend of human blood by the Japanese. As years went on it became a prestige drink for leading government officials and wealthy merchants. Japanese artists cherished wine as a special treat of the West, especially their spiritual capital. But now, when even farmers travel overseas, the snob-appeal business about wine appears over. "Like beef, wine will become a most popular item at the Japanese said officials of one Tokyo department store where about bottles of imported wine are kept in stock. Bottles of imported and local wines are lined up in department stores and smaller shops with price tags of 500 yen to yen, or to a bottle. Imported wines come from about 20 countries, including France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, West Germany, Hungary and Bulgaria.
