Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-15,Lethbridge, Alberta Turned down becaute of reêponêibilityWomen bankers shy away from management positions OTTAWA (CP) — Women bank«» outnumber men more than two-to-one in this coun^, but those advancing to the manager’s chair have üe^n few Lately, however, Uielr number has been growing—to 80 in 1973 from .only 29 five years ago—and three of them are in Ottawa. They are Shirley Graham, at the Imperial Banic of Commerce in suburban Kanata, Jean Elliot in the Bank of Montreal branch at Bank and Cecil streets and Gladys Marcellus at the Bank of Nova Scotia’s Bronson and Molmwood branch. Although 80 of 6,S00 branch managers in Canadian banks still is a smatl proportion]! bank policies towards recruitment and adVMcement of women into manaiement potitkxu in banking are changing. In 1900 there was only one woman in tbe banking system. By 1961, S6 per cent of bank staffs were women. This year women make up 70 ptr cent. The small number of w«nan bank managen is not totally a reflection of bank policy, it it laid. Blaine Austen, Eastern Ontario training officer for the Bank of Nova Scotia said N per cent of women in banks do not aspire to managerial levels. The two per cent that do arc advancing. WOMEN RELUCTANT Miss Elliot and Miss Marcellus agree that women often do not want to t^e on the responsibilities of bank managonoit. Miss Mareellus said: “They are quite hawy being ledgerkeepen. I had a girl oHem » managerial position and she turned it down because of tbe rMtponaibility.” “A lot of blame for not advancing lies on tbe sboulders of th« women themselves,” Miss Graham said. “Tlie glrb whine about their positions but do nothing about U.” Martin J. Bra<fy, district manager for tbe Bank of Montreal, said women are not willing to move to another city to gain advancement. “Women get attached to one locaUon and become comfortable in what they are doing. They become locked In position and tben wonder why they aren’t advanciqg.” MUST BE MOBILE Miss Graham agreed tbat mbbllily is lmpo^ tant: “In a brandi this size it Is very difficult for a girl to get ahead.” Tbere Is a staff of four at her branch. Tbe Bank of Nova Scotia stnans advancement of w(]«n«i already in the bank ratber than, direct recruitment of outside women into managerial training programs. Tlu» Bank of Montreal combiiies tbe two tediniques to fill management positions. All three women managers In this area came up through the ranks. Miss Marcellus started In a clerical position In IMS, became tt» firtt woman accountant in Canadian baafclng In IfM and a branch manager In IKl. Miss Graham be|^ as a proof teller in im and became a brandi manafer la 1171. Miss Elliot hat worked for three banks and travelled all over Canada In ber IS y*an In tbe business. The three uy they feri no dtacrlmlnatlon against them because of their sex. “Gradually men are accepttnc that «i are her« to stay”. Miss EUlot said. “I thli* It is only tbe insecure men who think that women are * threat to their position. The successful man are welcoming us to the top.” r-Tiic Herald- Family Space equipment used to analyse blood samples VANCOUVER (CP) -Computer equipment developed for United States space research has been adapted t6 help treatment of patients at Vancouver General Hospital.    - Dr. Donald Campbell, head of the hospital’s division of clinical biochemistry and associate pathology professor at University of British Columbia, is using two computers, valued at $120,000, to analyse blood samples. “In just tbree minutes I can have a reading about a patient who has been admitt^ in a coma—information that used to take several hours,” Dr. Campbell explained in an interview. The equipment was first developed for use in the Skylab space capsule by Dr. Norman Anderson, a physicist de- Night class turnout good More than 500 people registered during the first week of registration for evening programs at the Lethbridge Community College. Doug Scotney, assistant director of continuing education, says many courses are already filled, and in some cases there are waiting lists but consideration is being given to adding extra sections. Mr. Scotney said the first two courses to reach maximum enrolment were upholstery and meat cutting and packaging. ' It Is expected that 1,500 residents of Lethbridge and district will take advantage of the evening program. TDinr BINQO ie GAMES $500 BLACKOUT (Plarwi unlll Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS lodge room <upu*lr*) EVERY THURS.-8 p.m. scribed by Dr. Campbell as a probable candidate for a Nobel prize. In the Oak Ridges Natimial Laboratory in Tennessee, Dr. Anderson developed the Gem-saec Analyser System to monitor blood changes in astronauts during weightlessness. The unit can quickly analyse blood sugar and alcohol levels. Spinal fluid samples can also be fed into the machine for analysis and diagnosis. NEEDS SMALLER SAMPLE “Other^pieces of automatic equipment in tbe past have b^n capable of doing similar analysis over a longer period of time but required larger' amounts of cerebral spinal fluid,” said Dr. Campbell. “It is difficult at times to extract much of this fluid from a baby and doctors are extremely reluctant to do a second spinal tap because of the risk of infection and pain. “With this unit we can take just several drops and find out what is happening to the baby. More im(»rtant, we find out 'ast and the doctor can start appropriate treatment much more rapidly.” . Another unit, about tbe size of a food freezer and valued at $70,000, can analyse blood samples for sugar and alcohol, detect overdoses of painkillers, run tests needed on kidney transplant operations, analyse urine and perform several other tests. _ AID IN EMERGENCIES If an unconscious accident victim is admitted into the emergency ward overnight, when most laboratory facilities are unavailable, this computer can provide vital information about the patient within 10 minutes. It is so simple to operate “a layman could be taught to work It in about 20 minutes,” said Dr, Campbell. The various reagents necessary to conduct the tests are contained in tiny bubbles in a plastic pack. . The patient’s blood or urine sample is fed into the computer attached to a code de* termining the testa required. One or more packs with the necessary reagente are also fed into the unit. A fine needle pierces the bubbles, mixing tbe reagent with the patient sample. Light passing through the chemical mixtures, different In color and density, is then interpreted by the computer, which provides it print-out giving the amounts of matter in the sample.
