Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, February 27, 1974 Rape increases spur concern for victims TORONTO (CP) A 24-hour rape crisis centre has been or- ganized by a group of concerned women volunteers to help victims. The centre was formed after the group collected statistics in- dicating occurrences of rape have increased by 76 per cent in Toronto in the last six years. Prof. Lorenne Clark of University of Toronto said; "The statistics we have on hand represent only the reported in- cidents of rape. "Educated guesses about the unreported number of rapes range between 3Vi to 10 times the reported cases." She said when a rape victim calls the centre, two trained volunteers will pick her up and get her to a hospital imme- diately for a complete medical examination. "If the victims wants to report it to the police, we still take her to the hospital. Volunteers will remain with her throughout all questioning and the trial. In fact, we will watch over her through any other problems that happen as a consequence of the rape." Prof. Clark said the victim's identity will remain con- fidential, as will all details of the attack. "ONDON Via P.W.A. Boeing; 707 Whichever way you look at it, you can't do better than go with us.

(AP) Doctors at Methodist Hospital of Indiana are treating people before they get sick in an effort to ensure a longer, more productive life. It's all a part of what they call prospective, or preventive, medicine. Traditionally, doctors have been concerned with helping people get well after they are diseased and have treated only the diseased part of the body. Dr. Lewis C. Robbins, chief of the hospital's health hazard appraisal program, observed in an interview that "for 60 years medicine has been teaching how to fragment." For about 15 years, Robbins and a colleague, Dr. Jack H. Hall, the medical centre's director of graduate medical education, have been developing means of predicting what illnesses might befall an individual. They have published a book to advise physicians how to as- sess health hazards and help patients prevent or delay ill- nesses. Robbins and Hall say; "We are convinced that most medi- cine practised today is so spe- ciality-oriented that it is vir- tually impossible to claim that continuous, comprehensive medical care generally, is available." CAN AID LONGER LIFE Hall said he expects health hazard appraisal will become common in five or six years. A doctor knowledgeable about preventive medicine can advise patients how to adjust their lifestyle in order to stay healthy. For example, in the 40-44 age group for white males, the five leading causes of death are arteriosclerotic heart disease, motor vehicle accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, lung cancer and suicide.

Towards the middle March, a new consumer education booklet will be published by Du Pont of Canada, attempting to clear up some of the mystery that often accompanies a carpet purchase. In light of the 1974 fibre shortages in the carpet industry, Du Pont has revamped its advertising approach, Peter Duffield, the company's floor covering manager, said in a newsletter. instead of building a greater demand for specific products which may be hampered by fibre shortages and poor deliveries, we are going to try to teach the consumer to be a knowledgeable and thus confident buyer. Known as The Book, Du Pont's new 32-page informational booklet is designed to offer prospective carpet purchasers helpful information on what to look for when choosing a carpet. It covers such things as fibre, cost, styles, backing and retailer choice. The consumer movement in Canada, spearheaded by the Consumer's Association and Box 99, has for some time been telling companies about complaints associated with carpet WeeWhimsv wW bs sorit fhe origirfci VI Sena your tMld's qgguffion to fhs HJ Jordans "Canada's Carpet Specialists" Sale of fine Broadl tit ms Important savings on four distinctive styles of famous "Fashion Leader Carpet" Made exclusively for Jordans by Burlington Carpet Mills.
