The Southern Alberta Equestrian Council wishes to remind all member clubs planning to haul a horse from one location to another that you must have a manifest made out covering each trip. A manifest book can be picked up from any district agricultural office or from the brand inspector's office at any provincial livestock yard. Failing that, you can take your horse to the provincial brand inspector for inspection and apply for an annual permit. Bill Oleksy, Dorothy Gooder School principal, announces another "first" for his school: students and staff are now enjoy- ing lunches together in the school gym, thanks to the parents who first experienced a community lunch hour at the school's national swim day. Juliette Lacey, Horticultural Society newsletter editor, recommends placing flower stems in hot water at 110 degrees (about bath temperature) and letting it cool naturally, for best results if long lasting blooms are desired. Hot water moves easier and faster in the stems than does cold water, she says. She also recommends wrapping a piece of paper around the bou- quet after placing the flowers in hot water. This reduces water loss and prevents rapid air movement. Leo Pruegger, president of the now defunct Fun 'N Friends Club feels the club's demise is a loss to He believes organizations bent on helping individuals acquire new friends are badly needed and would like to see the group re- activated. All that is needed is a hall and enough interested residents to support such a group, he says. He can be reached at 328-4961. Family planning urged PHNOM PENH (AP) Marie-Eloise and Anna Charet live with "Happy" and "Mao Tse-tung" and 39 other children in a little island of love amid a sea of despair. Smiles are more frequent in the rambling, brightly-painted villa where the Canadian sisters have their orphanage than almost anywhere in this beleaguered and refugee- crammed capital of Cam- bodia. Despite shortages and shell- ings and warnings to leave, Marie-Eloise, 23, and Anna, 20, say that whatever happens they can't go back to Montreal. "How would the kids sur- vive if we says Marie- Eloise. "We can't go off and leave them to die. How could you live with "They're our says Anna. "We're used to children. We come from a family of 10 kids. "That's Mao says Marie-Eloise, indicating a four-year-old fearlessly investigating a visitor's wristwatch. "He was wander- ing in the street and living from door to door when we got him. Everybody said his name was Mao. We call him Mao Tse-tung. "His parents were killed in a massacre. He used to be terrified of white people. Now I wish he was a little more he's into everything." Almost every day brings a new child into the fold, usually from refugee parents who cannot or will not care for him or her. Yesterday it was an in- fant whose mother and father abandoned him and fled trying to make the Thai border: A woe-be-gone-looking one- year-old whose expression belies the name his vanished parents gave or a shaved area on his temple where the in- travenous feeding needle went in. "They're all malnourished when they come to says Marie-Eloise. "The parents don't leave them until it's really says Anna. "Sometimes they haven't been able to feed the children for a couple of weeks. They get diarrhea. It's very serious here. They get it and the next day they die." The Charet sisters have lost fniir children since arriving Christmas Eve to set up Can- ada House for a humanitarian group called Families for Children. One was a child rescued from a filthy hospital just hours before it died. Another was a six-month-old baby who weighed less than five pounds. But there is a strong urge for life in the screened porch where 22 infants howl in rows of metal in the play yard where kids up to five years old romp with never a thought for the war that is squeezing the city. Newcomers get special YJF's Take-A-Break sessions begin March 6 TORONTO To- ronto board of health is to re- ceive a report recommending an extensive family-planning program to ease the city's ris- ing rate of therapeutic abor- tions. Five major downtown hospitals performed about 230 abortions last year, more than a quarter of the provin- cial total. Ontario's total went to 603 in 1973 from in 1971, just more than half the national rate in each case. INSTALL A BUILT-IN VACUUM SYSTEM!

Under the direction of Nancy Latta, a new YW Take A Break group has been organized. Meetings will be held Thursdays, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the classroom at Stan Siwi-ck Pool in North Lethbridge. The next session is March 6. The TAB weekly programs provide an opportunity for women who spend the majori- ty of their time at home to have a morning out with other women. The children? They're nearby, being cared for in an adjacent room. The programs may include a variety of activities, including crafts, informal dis- cussions, physical fitness ex- ercises, films, guest speakers and demonstrations. YW program co ordinator Wallis Allen says children benefit from Take A Break play sessions, craft instruction and story times, as well as from interaction with other children. The cost of the program is plus for one child's babysitting, ?5 for two. The YWCA will assist with partial payment of fees for par- ticipants who cannot meet the full TAB costs.

"It took three weeks to get this one to says Anna proudly, holding a skinny tot. "Last night there was some music on, and he was danc- ing." Each older child has its own stuffed toy and its own bed in a room brightly painted by the sisters themselves as they worked 20 hours a day to get Canada House started.

"The prices of food have gone up tremendously. We've already cut down on eating meat for ourselves. "We've stocked up on rice, and different groups that have left Phnom Penh have left us some canned goods and sup- plies."

WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader's Health Research proup urged a United States government crackdown this week on lead in baby fruit juices which it said "puts children in jeopardy of lead poisoning." In a nine-page letter to the Food and Drug Administra- tion the consumer organization said an infant drinking canned juices and evaporated milk might receive more than twice the safe amount of lead. Dr. Sidney Wolfe, director of the group, said four studies by city, stale and federal health agencies have demonstrated that juices canned by some of the leading baby food companies in the U.S. still contain too much lead. The baby juice warning by Wolfe and staff lawyer Anita Johnson was in comments op- posing the FDA's proposal last December to replace in- formal guidelines with new legal limits reducing per- missible lead in evaporated milk to .3 from .5 parts per million (ppm) and cancer- causing elements in peanuts and peanut butter to 15 from 20 parts per billion. Wolfe said analysis by the Washington, D.C., health de- partment of 80 cans of juice, including sample products from Gerber, Heinz and Beechnut, found lead levels ranging from 100 to micrograms (megs) a litre (slightly more than a quart.) Apple juices average 490 megs, mixed juices 430 megs and orange juices 190, he said. Most scientists agree that children aged one to three years should not take in more than 300 megs a day, and even less if they have been exposed to lead previously since the heavy metal accumulates in a youngster's body. Wolfe said a 1974 study by the New York State health department of 86 canned baby foods discovered that many juices had more than 400 megs of lead and some exceeded 500 megs. Most of the lead in juices and evaporated milk comes from solder used to seal the cans and can be avoided, Wolfe said. The proposed federal limit of .3 ppm in evaporated milk is times the standard already met by industry, with the result that "virtually every bad evaporated milk producer can keep his product on the market without the letter said.
