Farm wife loses 222 pounds-without a diet EDMONTON (CP) - Farm wife Mary Vert lost 222 pounds-without going on a diet. The method? A modified small-bowel-bypass operation. The operation was performed at Edmonton's University hospital, one of more than 120 since 1964. Dr. Peter Salmon, the surgeon who developed the method, said he believes the procedure produces the most lasting weight loss with minimum side effects. Mrs. Vert, who had the operation three years ago, goes horseback riding, dances, swims and wears pant suits things she'd never dream of doing when she weighed 376 pounds. Today she weighs 154 pounds. "I feel so much better now," she said. "I have no backaches. I can work as long as I want to without being exhausted." Mrs. Vert said she was always "overweight and clumsy" since she was 14 years old "when it was really important not to be." NOW SHE CAN DANCE She yearned to dance but couldn't, "Now I really dance up a storm whenever I can." Mrs. Vert lives on a farm 14 miles northeast of Lloydmins-ter, Sask., 150 miles east of Edmonton on the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary. One of the major advantages, from her point of view but not necessarily from that of her husband, is that she now can walk into a store and buy clothes. "It was hard at first, because I was so weak from the weight loss, but I had the support and sympathy of my whole family, and this is the way it has to be." Dr. Salmon said that by bypassing or "shunting out" 80 to 90 per cent of the small intestine, normally 20 feet long, food stuffs such as fat, are more slowly digested and in this way the calorie intake is curtailed. "The bowel is excluded, but not removed, which allows it to remain idle and in this way there is the advantage that the normal intestine can be re-established if desired." It has been necessary to reconnect only four of the 120 patients who have undergone the operation since 1964. Three had nausea which inter- Friendship Centre brief outlines alcohol problem A report attempting to outline the alcohol problem existing in this area, what has been done about it, and what may be done about it, has been submitted to the Alcohol and Drug Aouse Commission. The report was drawn up by Rose Yellow Feet, director of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre. Her goal was to try and show what she feels is the need in this area, to try and combat the problem, and to find solutions for the problem. There were five problems outlined in the report pertaining to Lethbridge. First outlined was the problem that people come out of jail, have no place to go, and are sent out to the Reserve where they get right back into the same situation again. Mrs. Yellow Feet states that there is nothing for them out there. If they stay in town, they need food, shelter, and clothing, and receiving none, get back into the old problem again, and end up back in jail. The second problem outlined, was that 50 per cent of women in jail in Southern Alberta, are there because of a drinking problem. "When people come with these problems, we have no place to refer them to, and have even taken them into our homes to counsel them and give them another chance." She went on to state that this was very impractical, as it was not a permanent solution anyway. Third was the problem of drug abuse. She states that only one person, whom she was aware of, had been in the Centre under the influence of drugs, but that the problem of glue-sniffing in the dances is becoming more prevalent. Mrs. Yellow Feet went on to state the fourth problem of girls wanting to be rehabilitated, but having to be sent to Calgary to do so. This takes them away from home and the problems which they will have to overcome. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Let me listen to one of those eggs--if I don't hear anything moving around in it I'll chance a dozen." The fifth problem discussed in the report was that of people just getting out of jail and needing a place to go where they can be counselled into a better way of life. If not, they find themselves facing the same problem. Problems on the reserve were named such as the children who are left alone to run wiid, while their parents are out drinking in town somewhere. The Voice of Native Women of Southern Alberta is attempting to take on a project of having two promising young women from the reserve trained in Alcoholism Counselling. They would then return to the Reserve to work with the people there. Recommended to the Commission, were a series of workshops and seminars on alcohol problems. These would be held on the reserve to try and help those who did not have a serious drinking problem, but who might if not helped soon. The report was forwarded to Edmonton, and was to be heard at the Alcohol and Drug Commission Meeting in Edmonton on Tuesday. A. H. McMullen, Acting Director of the Division of Al-cholism Department in Edmonton was in the city Monday to study the problems of alcoholism in South Alberta, and to see what could be done to help in this area.

The operation used here was established by extensive experience in the research lab and examination of the experience of a few other centres that have performed this type of surgery. Dr. Salmon has operated on patients from 16 to 65 years of age. Cause of obesity usually is overeating. But each body works differently and overeating is not always the cause. "Observation shows that there are tendencies in almost all of the patients to maintain a loss of weight, initially induced by the operation, during the first year up to the third. But this weight loss may continue up to four years and then stabilize." Home, School opposes cigarette advertising A request from the Canadian Heme and School and Parent-Teacher Federation to ban cigarette advertising on television is to be discussed by the Lethbridge Home and School Council at its next meeting Jan. 25 in Giiberl Paterson School. The request came in the form of a telegram to federal Health Minister John Munro, criticizing him for not halting the advertising and urged him to take immediate action to put such a ban in effect, as has been done in the United States. Mrs. Edwin Brown, president of the local council said Monday that she considered the ban a "great step toward national health." The federation has started an anti-smoking campaign after conducting a survey which showed: -Children are beginning to smoke as early as six; -Householders are giving cigarettes to children as Halloween handouts ; -Storekeepers are opening packages and selling children individual cigarettes. The federation intends to llace anti-smoking literature in about 500,000 Canadian homes as part of its campaign. The CBC already has voluntarily given up all cigarette advertising on both its television and radio networks. The CBC announced in May, 1969, that it would accept no new contracts for tobacco advertising. All previous contracts expired in the summer of 1969. John Bassett, president of television station CFTO in Toronto which is affiliated with the CTV network, also announced in May, 1969, that his station would ban cigarette advertising. The ban took effect Sept. 15, 1969. Mr. Munro has said the government will introduce in the | current session of Parliament ' legislation dealing with tobacco and smoking. He has not specified what areas the legislation will cover, but has said the government had considered a Commons committee report on the subject and a policy position prepared by the health department. The committee has recommended that all broadcast advertising forcigarettesbe banned.

Persons under 16 years not allowed Sponsored by the Men's Club to St. Peter and St. Paul's Church Tuesday, January 12, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - %% Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I attended a lovely dinner party last night and witnessed the crude exploitation of a lovely man who chose medicine as a career. Within 30 minutes, three women converged on him. One wanted to know if she should stay on The Pill-or is the I.U.D. better-or should her husband have a vasectomy? Another woman said she 'had been hoarse for two weeks and would he look in her throat. The third woman-Ann, you won't believe this- dragged him into the utility room and confided th'at she had just noticed a lump in her breast and would he mind taking a quick look and put her mind at ease. This particular evening was worse than most but every time we go out it's the same story. Why do people do this? Is there a solution?-The Doctor's Wife DEAR WIFE: People do this because, they can't resist the temptation to get something for nothing. (It's usually a dame.) One doctor solved the problem this way: Whenever a clod approached him at a social affair for professional advice he stopped her cold by saying-"Undress so I can examine you." ' � � � DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a young woman with three children. I have been living with a divorced man who promised he'd marry me before the first baby was born but somehow he never got around to it. I am sure he loves me and I know he adores the kids but I hate to go on living this way. His big hang-up is that he is afraid the marriage might get into the paper. Any advice?-Single Mother DEAR SINGLE: In Cook County when a couple files for a marriage licence, if they request that the record be kept out of the paper, their i wishes are usually granted. Check with the Bureau of Vital Statistics in your county. If you tell them why you wish the item left out of the newspaper they will probably co-operate. BINGO - RAINBOW HALL "oi sth Ave. n.
