Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Things t columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: If you are inclined to blame your parents for everything that wrong in your life, it isn't hard to find a reason. Science has discovered nearly diseases that may be he- reditary. Freezing makes most things shorter. Perhaps that explains why the Laplanders of north- ern Europe are that conti- nent's smallest people. They average onl 4tt to five feet tall. New on the market. A left- handed boomerang for south- paws who get self-conscious while throwing right-handed boomerangs. Here's the only sure way to have tbe last word in an argu- ment with a woman: hang up the phone on go away before she can call back. A sobering thought: Did you ever think while at a cocktail party that one of the next 13 people who have a drink with you is or will become an al- coholic. Of course, if you have a separate drink with each of them, there's no doubt who the alcoholic is. HAVE ULCERS The price of intelligence: Porpoises believed to be the- most intelligent of sea crea- tures, have a brain that is in some ways more complex than man's. Also like man, the porpoise is high strung, and when overworked it may develop stomach ulcers. Lost waterpower: If it could be harnessed, the energy re- leased by one inch of rain fall- ing on one acre of land would plow nine or 10 acres. Pass the salt. One of the most essential ingredients in the human body is salt, but it also has been indicted as a potential factor in the devel- opment of life-shortening high blood pressure. Medical re- searchers believe most Amer- icans consume three to four tunes as much salt as they 12 to 15 grams a day when they actually need only four to five grams. Socreds regroup for Ottawa drive VANCOUVER (CP) Mem- bers of the Federal Social Cred- it movement in British Colum- bia are rebuilding their organ- ization with hopes of becoming "a serious federal contender" allied with the Quebec basfid Kalliement des Creditistes, a B.C. official says. Gayle Dewhirst, lower B.C. mainland zone director for a newly formed organization called the Federal Social Cre.l- it Rally, said in an interview here efforts are under way to enter a full slate of Socred can- didates in ths province in the next federal election. "Social Credit has been dor- mant here as far as federal politics are said Mr. Dewhirst. "We are now in the process of rebuilding the organization as a serious fed- eral contender." He said a meeting last week in nearby Surrey saw local members of the old federal So- cial Credit Association vote unanimously to join forces with the Quebec federal party led by Real Caouette. They formed a local organization called the Surrey Federal Social Credit Rally. The B.C. socred rally now Is planning to establish similar bodies in New Westminster, Burnaby, Richmond and Delta. Slow rate of aging WASHINGTON (AP) By the year the scientist said, it should be technically possible to add 20 to 40 useful years to an individual's period of middle age. Dr. Leon R. Kass of the Na- tional Academy of Sciences said conservative estimates from re- cent research indicate aging may be a process that can be manipulated, perhaps by such measures as diet and drugs. Working from animal studies, Kass said, scientists have sug- gested a small decrease in the temperature of a human body could slow the rate of aging. Body processes slow down at fewer temperatures. But it is just such dramatic possibilities in current biomedi- cal research that raise profound questions for society, said Kass, executive director of the Na- tional Academy's committee on life sciences and social policy. He spoke Monday to a semi- nar on science and public policy being held this week at the academy. At first, Kass said, longevity probably will be obtained by an individual only at great ex- pense. "Who is likely to be able to buy he asked. "Do con- science and prudence permit us to enlarge the gap between rich and poor, especially with re- spect to something as funda- mental as life Already, medical advances have produced some dehumani- zation of life, such as the in- creasing number of lonely old people kept alive by medical progress. "We have learned how to in- crease their he said, "but we have not learned how to help them enjoy their days." This seems silly, eh? DETROIT (AP) "I'm for health standards as much or more than the next said George Verbeke, "but this seems silly." A federal health standards law which went into effect Jan. 2 required an inspector's pres- ence at any establishment proc- essing more than chick- ens a year, and Verbeke's mar- ket on Detroit's east side bare- ly qualified. Verbeke had to provide the inspector an office and equip- ment and pay his overtime, some a week. The govern- ment paid the inspector's sal- ary of a year. The inspector stayed for one month and rejected one chick- en. He was withdrawn last week after agriculture department lawyers decided such require- ments really were for whole- salers processing millions of birds and found a loophole ex- cluding Verbeke's market. END BOURSE STRIKE PARIS (Reuter) Clerks and other staff of the Paris Bourse return to work Monday after a three-day strike to back claims for more pay and better work- ing conditions. EYE-STOPPER A poker face in surprsing situations Is the trait of a good diplomat, East or West, as Valerian Zorin, Soviet ambassador to France, demonstrates at an art show in Paris. The eye-stopper, for everyone else at least, is a hands-and-knees sculpted view of Brigitle Bardot.
