Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-11,Lethbridge, Alberta 20 — THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD — Frh ■:;:5!:íá::W«s:->>;K-K-K-í:WíW:í¥S^^ ......Just brushing your teeth doesn’t get at the problem ' By GEORGE STEPHENSON Herald Staff Writer For years people have depended strictly on a toothbrush and paste to get their teeth clean. But this is not enough, says a Lethbridge dentist. A toothbrush (ails to reach irom 75 to 85 per cent of the teeth surface, so both a brush and dental Hoss should be used to get teeth clean, he says. At least once every 24 hours both a toothbrush and unwaxed dental floss should be used on the teeth to dislodge any "plaque" that has accumulated on the surface or between the teeth. Plaque is the film of bacteria and saliva that sticks to the teeth and is responsible for decay and gum disease. The bacteria first causes decay on the biting surface of the teeth, next between the teeth, and thirdly on the gum line. A toothbrush, the dentist explains, cannot clean between the teeth and often misses the gum line where teeth and gums meet. Using floss dislodges the plaque between teeth. A piece of the special thread about 30 inches long should be used. The floss is wrapped around the middle finger of each hand at the level of the first joint leaving about four inches of thread to work between the teeth. Each in-between surface should be cleaned with an up-and-down wrap around motion. When the floss squeaks it is rubbing against a clean tooth. To cover areas of the teeth the dental floss misses, a soft nylon brush with two or three rows of bristles should be used. Tooth pastes containing iluoride are recommended by the Canadian Dental Association. There are several recognized brands. “But toothpaste gives a person a false sense of security ... it doesn’t clean the teeth, it only cleans through the mechanical action of the brush,” the dentist explains. Although it is easiest to brush the sides and tops of the teeth it is equally important to brush all crevices where the teeth and gums meet. For good results a short vibrating stroke with the bristles angled into the gum line is recommended. Broper care A giant toothbrush, left, and dental floss, below, are used to demonstrate proper and adequate cleaning methods for for teeth. The special thread removes hidden plaque, while the angled bristles brush areas often missed. '‘Operation Springboard^ links inmates with outside r-l\xc Herald- Family ‘Mr,’ sounds mediocre Class distinctions exist TORONTO (CP) - Carol Mildon travels hundreds of miles every week to talk to armed robbers, killers, drug pushers, hookers and other prisoners of penitentiaries m the Kingston area. Tom Doran, 31, a former teacher goes with her, and between them they form the only link many prisoners have with the outside. Miss Mildon, 24, and Mr. Doran are part of OMration Springboard, which is based in a brothel-turned-community centre in Toronto’s east end. Operation Springboard started three years ago by two former inmates and now employs 12 persons, half of whom are former prisoners or wives whose husbands have been prisoners. Its aim is to help prisonere or ex-prisoners and their families in various ways. One is trying to keep families together. Most prisoners’ wives living on welfare cannot afford to visit prisons. Springboard maintains a daily shuttle service for wives and children. Choral workshop set for Jan. 19 A series of choral workshops will be held for all interested Jan. 19 at Wilson Junior High School. The workshops are sponsored by the Klwanis Music Festival Committee, the provincial cultural development branch, and the Lethbridge public and separate school boards. »UILK BINQO 1« GAMES $500 BUCKOUT (Pliywl Until Won) (Upilalr*) Registration for all groups, including class teachers,' specialists, junior and youth church choir leaders, community choir directors, and the public will take place from 9 to 9.30 a.m. Clinician for the primary and upper elementary demonstration choir will be Lloyd Erickson of Calgary, president of the Alberta Choral Directors’ Association, The clinic will take place from 9; 30 am to noon and from 1 to 3.30 p.m. Community and church music groups will be under the direction of Madge McCready of EMmonton.

In the maximum securi-ty penitentiaries, visitors have to shout through a glass screen. Tensions everywhere are high. The wives comfort and support one another on the journey back.” BOOST MORALE Doug McLaurin, coordinator with Mr, Doran, interviews ex-convicts, helps boost their morale and offers advice about accommodation, clubs and persons who would show friendship, “Most find freedom a terrifying experience after their life as a number in prison,’' he said. Mr. Doran said family affairs are the prisoners’ main worries. “They can do absolutely nothing to help their families in a crisis. Wives, suddenly faced with all the decisionmaking, the hostility of neighbors plus all the financial and emotional burdens of child-care, do time just like their husbands. Some turn to drugs and other solaces. Many lead lonely courageous lives. Other prisoners’ worries are parole, retraining courses, jobs and places to live. Some prisoners don’t make any requests at all, said Mr. Doran. “They just want to look at us, be called by their names and treated with some respect. “Dehumanization comes fast in jail. They lose all selfconfidence, can’t relate to people. The system makes them less and less able to function in the outside world. Many take drugs, which are easily available inside.” Both Mr Doran and Miss Mildon said wrongdoers cannot be expected to return to society as good citizens if they are isolated in prison and their sense of responsibility is broken down Funding for Operation Springboard in the past has come from the Local Initiatives Program, The Atkinson Charitable Foundation, businesses and the federal government. Workers are hoping that the solicitor-general’s office will assume responsibility for the service. BETTER HALF Mt is my duty to inform you that you have the right to remain silent . . .

Chinese buyers visit Calgary i Sunfli^it* arranged by LIVES INSURED At the end of Canadians owned $121 of life insurance. 1970, billion CALGARY (CP) - Tailors in the People’s Republic of China are aware that Canadians are fashionconscious and are making stylish clothing for the Canadian market, says the head of a Chinese trade mission visiting Calgary. Wang Ming-chun, managing director of the China National Textile Import-Export Corporation, said Canada now is enjoying a six-to-one advantage in trading with China, exporting $300 million worth of goods to China annually while buying $50 million. The purpose of the trade mission IS to survey market conditions in Canada so that China can sell more to bridge the gap, he said in an interview. While the mission, in Canada for a month now at the invitation of the Canadian Ugly title LONDON (CP) - The Evening Standard offered a bottle of champagne for the most unappealing beauty title after Miss Kentucky Fried Chicken was crowned here. Among early suggestions was Queen of the Furrow, from a Canadian plowing match, and Miss Universal Grinding Wheel from Staffordshire. government, is primarily a selling one, it has several members who are also interested in buying, Mr. Wang said. “In clothing, Canadians require a wide range of sizes and style preferences change quickly," he said through an interpreter. “Despite the distance between the two nations, it’s possible to keep pace with the market demands here and to match products to requirements." Among the goods China hopes to sell in Canada are textiles, hardware items, sporting equipment, food products and ceramics. Mr. Wang said although Canadian exports to China are mainly raw materials, particularly wheat, China has been buying more manufactured goods, including machinery parts. The 12-member mission arrived here Sunday from Vancouver and left for Ottawa Wednesday. While here, they met businessmen and Alberta government officials, including industry minister Fred Peacock They were also taken on a sightseeing tour to Banff National Park by local Chinese businessmen. tfm kirvi/ bovd Rd. 639 - 5tli Avenue S W , Ciilgary Look inside your carton of Alberta Fresh Eggs for entry forms and lucky-draw details.^ Sponsored by the ALBERTA ‘ EGG & FOWL MARKETING BOARD Take Off Fat With Home Recipe Plan It's simple how one may lose pounds of unsightly fat right in your own home.

Big busts looked into LONDON (AP) - Conservative MP Marcus Fox is not against girls being made more attractive, but he doesn’t think Britain's National Health Service should pay $350 for operations to make their busts bigger. He is asking Social Services Minister Sir Keith Joseph to look into the matter. At Leeds General Infirmary in Yorkshire, a qiottestnan said “We have performed about six of these operaUons on the National Health. There have been good psychological reasons for «ach ofie.” LONDON, England — Britain may be the only major Western nation where “Mr.” can sound mediocre. A man presenting himself at a receptionist’s desk, and giving his name, may be asked: “Is that ‘Mr’?” It might, after all,' be “Lord ’ or “Sir,” In this small island kingdom, a sizable slice of the subjects have names bedecked with titles and orders; 1,073 lords (dukes, marquesses, earles, viscounts, barons, and such), some 3,500 knights, and hundreds of thousands of the royally honored — from the Order of the Garter to the run-of-the-honors list Companion of the Bath. This heraldry is perhaps the most flamboyant trapping of a class consciousness that clings, with feudal stubbornness, to mdem Britain. (Some continental European countries, notably Italy, have more iietitfed people than Britain, but the titles have less meaning than they do in Britain. ) A nearly unanimous 91 percent of Britons, surveyed last year by the National Opinion Poll, agree that money, education, speech, job, family background, and place of residence mark a person as either working-class or middle-class. And 60 percent of the men polled claim it is hard to advance from one class to another. “A root cause of Britain’s present malaise,” declares a writer in (of all places) the Financial Times, “is the continuing class conflict.” The Britain of Twiggy and Capt. Mark Phillips could hardly be called a class-ridden society, compared with, say, the Britain of Dickens and Queen Victoria. But the suspicion that remnants of the old class divisions Gland bank suggested TORONTO (CP) Establishing a pituitary bank, similar to an eye may be the answer to the present shortage of growth hormones for children threatened by dwarfism, says George Kerr, provincial justice minister. He said in an interview Tuesday the present shortage at the Hospital for Sick Children, where the waiting period for one injection of the hormone is eight months, is due in part to the lack of a network for distribution of the hormone, which is extracted from human pituitary glands after death. Before the Human Tissue Act of 1971 was passed, extraction of the pituitary glands was automatic at a post-mortem. But passage of the act limited coroners to extracting only those organ» essential in determining the cause of death. "We need a network, possibly a pituitary gland association, involving doctors, coroners and pdice in a set-up to file information on who'« dead, where, and tlw possibility of extraction," Mr. Kerr said. survive gets statistical support from a recent government review of the past decide. The wide spread of earnings among those who work for a living, it turns out, has narrowed little since the Victorian year of 1886, Schools “ elsewhere a ladder for the upwardly mobile — in Britain often seem more like a treadmill. The white-collar worker’s child reads nearly twice as well as the blue-collar child, concludes an exhaustive study of 11-year-olds by the National Children’s Bureau. With social classes walled up (it sometimes seems) like Victorian drawing rooms, one result can be a prickly class loyalty. “I’m working-class,” a British laborer is likely to boast defiantly, in much the same way as his more ambitious American counterpart might claim hopefully to be middle-class. Another result is the honing of class distinctions into a fine art. Language snobbery labels certain words “U” (proper for university graduates) or “non-U.” Well-bred Britons use “napkins,” for example, not “serviettes.” Their homes contain a “lay” or a “loo,” but never a toilet. And who but a “U” person could know that a family name such as Trottiscliffe is pronounced “Trosli?" Britain’s most prominent class climber. Prime Minister Edward Heath, has audibly “poshed up” his speech while rising from Kent carpenter’s son to the highest elective official in the land. Not so active now Judy Agnevii, once one of the busiest official wives on the Washington social scene, is rarely seen in public now. Her secretary says the wife of former vice-president Spiro Agnew, is doing beautifully and IS enjoying life as a housewife. Her husband resigned in Oclober. CASH BINGO ST. BASIL’S HALL—Cor.
