Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, Fcoruary YW atuned to working woman concept By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer A more demanding women in today's world has forced the Young Women's Christian Association of Canada to take a new look at the organization. "The working women of today have less time to spend on out-of-the-home activities, and are definitely more 'choosey' about how they spend that says Florence Campbell of Toronto, national president of the YWCA. "The role of the Y has been one of broadening the working woman concept, of providing programs which are atuned to the needs of the new woman, of providing her with outlets she wants." Mrs. Campbell, who has been president since June, is touring YWs across the country. "Rather than becoming a thing of the past, women's organizations are needed more, and are more says Mrs. Campbell. "They enable women to know both their privileges and their responsibilities. We still take into account the total person not just fitness, but also the mental and spiritual aspects of the person." Most YW organizations are now moving out into the community., she says, to help people get going in whatever direction they want. "The concept of having everything under one roof is not so popular any longer; but making use of community resources she explained. Mrs. Campbell says the new movement toward possible national co-operation between the YW and the YM is still being studied, with a meeting planned for June. "Some decision will be made at this time, regarding the study, The Distance Between Two Triangles, which concerns the two she says. "What it is going to be I cannot say. But whatever the decision on a national level, it won't affect the policies of the autonomous local chapters." In Lethbridge, the YW and the Family YMCA are separate units, although there is a degree of co-operation between the two in planning programs and making best possible use of available facilities. Of the 60 local associations in Canada, 28 are amalgamated with the YMCA. The committee which has been looking at amalgamation possibilities has been made up of both YW and YM people, but "mostly people in the community." In future years, Mrs. Campbell expressed her hopes that the organization would continue to "speak out against injustices as it has in the past." "The lack of housing, lack of equal opportunities for women, the poverty all of these are concerns of the YW. The needs of the community are also priorities, with the need for day care centres an increasing concern." She says women who are part of the working world need the assurance that child care centres will be reliable and can provide their children with all their needs and love as well. "For many YW organizations, housing for girls is still a major priority and the residences are filled to capacity. While in other areas, the needs of the community have surpassed the need for residences. "The YW is interested, in services, in new directions. We're catering to involvement on the what-do-you-want, how-can-we-help Mrs. Campbell says. Mrs. Campbell will be president until a replacement is elected at the national conference to be held in 1975.

Smooth as a baby's bottom In every young man's life, comes a time when he begins to notice interesting things like dad's daily ritual of lathering up, applying the white stuff and sliding it off with the greatest ease. It looks like a fun, so what's all the grumbling about? Why dad makes shaving such a chore is a real mystery to three-year-old Glenn Bowman of Brantford, Ont. When it came time to show pop just how much fun the ordeal can be, Glenn quickly applied a few dabs of funny smelling soap, added a couple scrapes with a toy plastic razor, and wow! Everything turned out smooth as a baby's bottom. It's child play, fellas!

It can, if you plan your health today with as much care and concern as you plan your financial security. Planning and maintaining your health is largely a matter of good common sense. Mental alertness, a good memory, maintaining a lively interest in the world around you, enjoyment of sex, these are all symptomatic, good yardsticks by which to measure good health. And good health is the dividend you earn as a result of good nutrition and good living from the cradle onward. Dr. Pearl Swanson, of Iowa State University, expressed it well when she wrote: "Preparation for a healthy old age should begin in the office of the pediatrician." Dr. Swanson, among others, maintains that what you will be in 20, 30, or 50 years depends in large measure on the food choices you make now. She says that the characteristics of senility may not be the mark of old age, but rather, of nutritive failure. Clinical studies indicate that improvement of diets has resulted in the return of more youthful attributes in people who were old in appearance and relatively young in years. Poor health, lack of vigor, gray hair, skin conditions, sense of fatigue and loss off interest in life may represent years of poor dietary choices. Many believe that aging is closely related to nutrition. Malnourished or starved persons may rapidly assume the appearance of advanced years; the hair may lose color and become thin, the skin wrinkled and inelastic. Sexual functions wane, and bone, muscle and vital glands and organs may develop chemical changes typical of so-called senile degeneration. There is little question that the food we eat affects our general health. The right food keeps the body at peak efficiency. In the event of illness, the properly-nourished person will respond quickly to treatment. The body that is undernourished is more susceptible to disease. Weight is a big factor in your health as well- People of normal weight outlive those .who are overweight. Excessive weight contributes to fatigue and puts extra strain on the heart, the arteries, the elimination system and other vital organs. The degenerative diseases most often attack the Good diet Experts say loss of vigor and vitality in aging years is actually a direct result of a poor diet throughout the person's lifetime. Youthful activity can be restored by implementing sound, nutritional dietary habits. overweight person, and the greater the excess weight the greater the chances of illness and accident. The problem is caloric intake. A calorie is a unit of heat, applied to measure the energy produced by various foods. As you grow older and become less active physically, your body doesn't require as many calories of energy as it did when you were younger and more active. Unfortunately, most of us are creatures of habit. We've acquired habits of eating certain things, and certain amounts. We continue to maintain the same diet throughout our lives, with the same large portions, and we tend to add weight as the years go by. Naturally, your body uses fewer calories today that it needed yesterday to burn as energy. Therefore, it stores the calories as fat to be burned off some other time. But that time never comes, and the fat accumulates. The following table illustrates the approximate caloric requirements for normally active people at various ages: Age Men Women (154 Ibs.) (128 Ibs.) 25 cal. cal. 45 cal. cal. 65 cal. cal. Unfortunately, too many of us are intrigued and taken in by the dieting fads, which "guarantee" to take the weight off. We are not saying that all these fad diets are wrong, but we caution you to know what you are doing. Many proponents of such diets advocate cutting down on proteins, since you are no longer actively engaged in a job requiring much physical exertion. For the most part, that advice is pure bunk! One result of following these tidbits of "wisdom" is that half the troubles of older people may well be due to malnutrition, or starvation. Many overweight people are ,fat because they eat too much of the wrong thing. They consume too much high- calorie food: starches and sweets, butter, margarine, oils, etc., and are, literally, starving, not from a lack of food, but from not eating a balanced diet, supple- mented, if necessary, by vitamins. You do need fewer calories, as you grow older, but your protein-, vitamin, and mineral needs remain the same. The best thing you can do is to get on the scales and have a talk with your doctor. He will have a pretty good idea as to what is right for you. Find out what you should weigh and then make it a priority to reach that weight and keep it there. Next: Keeping In Shape.
