For nearly two years, Italian political leaders have succeeded in delaying the poll, tearing that it will polarize the nation into Roman Catiiolic and non-Cathohc faC' tions. Almost everyone agrees that the referendum will benefit no one except staunchly right-wing Catholics who collected more than 1,300,000 signatures to set the wheels in motion for the poll. Their aim is to overturn the country’s three-year-old divorce law — still restrictive by standards of most European nations but total anathema to traditionally-minded Catholics who view ' marriage as a sacrament not to be broken under any circumstances. For months, political leaders have been searching for a constitutional way to get themselves off the hook — but time appears to be running cut and the referendum is scheduled to be held some time between mid-April and June 1ft. Main stumbling-block to a compromise agreement Is the Christian Democratic party, main partner in Italy’s four-party coalition government. The Christian Democrats are still viewed In many quarters as the "political arm” of the Catholic Church, and three years ago they voted against the law which legaliz* ed divorce in Italy for the first tin«* But with the exception of a small right-wing group led by former premier Giulio Andreotti, not even the Christian Democrats welcome the referendum. They believe it would play Into the bands of the neo-Fascists, who try to present themselves as the only supporters of the nation’s traditional Catholic views. There are two overriding fears; That the issue will prove deeply divisive to the nation and that recriminations between the Christian Democrats and NEW — BINGO — NEW I LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE - 1234 - 3rd Ave. N.

Its opposition to divorce itself, of course, remains but there have been persistent reports of intensive negotiations between Vatican officials and the Secretary-general of the Christian Democrats, Amintore Fan-fani, on ways of getting round the referendum. Although his remarks left room for doubt about the Christian Democrats’ final stand on the question, the party leader’s announcement drew immediate hostile comment from other political figures. Declared Francesco de Martino, leader of the small but influential Socialist party; “The Christian Democrats must now assume the responsibility for what in the present circumstances can only be a bitter and violent struggle. “It would be extremely serious tor our democracy if Its first popular referendum were to result in the abrogation of a democratic law.” SOLUTION SUGGESTED De Martino had suggested a compromise solution to the divroce question which he had hoped would avoid the need for a referendum. The suggestion — modelled on Polish legislation — would have given the courts the right to refuse a divorce petition if one of the parties involved objected on grounds of religious conviction. But earlier proposals along similar lines had run into criticism because they could be construed as settli^ up a double standard, directly contrary to the principle of equality before the law. How Will ttalUms vote, if asked for a straight answer on the divorce question? It will probably be close, although most commentators believe that the longer the law rmains in force, the more pe<^le come to acc^t It. But at present it seems as though the fundamental ques* tion has become obscured by more overtly political coo-sideratlons. Whether or not the referen* dum will be held is now the main concern of Italian political leaders and commoi-tators alike ~ much to the annoyance of those who fe^ the country should be more anxious about its faltering economy and the effects of the energy crisis. Arteriosclerosis Hrapped’ fatty deposits VANCOUVER (CP) - People will have to pay much more attention to food and body chemistry if they are to reduce hardening of the arteries, says University of British Columbia researcher Dr. Paris Constantinides. Dr. Constantinides, of UBC’s department of pathology, has come up with a definite explanation of the mechanism of arteriosclerosis after 23 years work. He has given a paper on his findings to the European Congress of Pathology in Budapest. Dr. Constantinides said in an interview that fatty sub- Sears WHEN YOU TRADE Trade your old wig or hairpiece.

Centre Village Mall — Telephone 320-9231 stances are not alone in being detrimental to arteries. He speculated food additives and preservatives may be an area for furüier research. Dr. Constantinides said the traditional explanations that held that encrustations of cholesterol build up inside the arteries like calcium deposits in old iron water-pipes are wrong. He said Öiis idea arose from molecules the where necessary by adjoining tissues.    „ USE RADIO TRACER He was able to prove by radioactive traces of cholesterol given to animals that the buildup of fatty deposits occurs not on the inside of the artery tube but within the artery’s wall. “It becomes trapped,” said Dr. Constantinides. Excessive amounts of trapped, fatly deposits create a reaction that leads to swelling, narrowing of the bore of the artery, and within the wall an increase of collagen — a substance of scar tissue fibres—which hardens. The researcher explained that a healthy artery consists of layers of snsooth muscle and an elastic substance called elastin. He said the smooth muscle provides an automatic control of contraction or relaxation on the interior diameter of the artery and hence the blood flow. The inside wall is shielded by a protective film called endothelium. This endothelium has been the subject of Dr. Constantinides’ research. He said he confirmed the findings of an Italian researcher that ex- cessive amounts of fat in the blood reduce the thickness of the endothelium lining. CONTAINS GLUE But Dr. Constantinides went on to discover that the junction of the endothelium cells contain a glue, which he suspects contains calcium. And he contended that anything that would attack the calcium "would open the door” between the cells of the artery lining and allow blood and molecules of fat to escape into the wall where they would cause hardening. Dr. Constantinides does not think arteries already hardened can be made pliable again. But the process can be halted. However, there are precautions that may be taken. He said he knows that carbon monoxide and nicotine from cigarette smdce hit in two ways — by raising blood pressure and by damaging the endothelium. ~ Secondly, he said, excessive fat on the body means abnormal quantities of fat in the blood stream, and urged eating less and exercismg more to keep calorie intake just equal to, or below, expenditure. And third, said Dr, Constantinides, everyone should have a regular checkup, not only for blood pressure but, if necessary, for blood chemistry and immunological factors as well.

CAVES ARE NUMEROUS There are an estimated 2,500 caves on Vancouver Island Ann Landers Dear Am Laaden; Please say something In your column about guard dogs. Let people know they are not pets; A ird dog is trained to kill and ill do it if he thinks his master is being threatened. I have a baby and we live in an apartment. My husband travels so I need this dog for protection. When I take the baby out in the carriage I always have the dc^ at my side, on a short leash. I can’t understand how people can be so dumb as to walk over and try to pet a strange dog. When I say, "Be careful, my dog isn’t friendly,” they answer, “All dogs like me.” My dog is trained to bark first. If the person doesn’t back away he goes right for the neck. I had an unpleasant experience a few days ago and the man screamed, "Why don’t you put a muzzle on that thing?” Guard dogs aren’t supposed to be muzzled. It breaks their training. Another word of warning to people who are walking their pets. They should be kept on leashes and under control at all times Even if a dog is of a different sex the guard dog will try to kill it. Thank you for giving me a chance to say something important. — Loulfvllle Dear Louisville; And now may I say something important’ I’m glad you don't live in my neighborhood. I’d be scared to death. Don’t you realize that your dog is a potential murderer? You have no business posing such a threat to innocent people. Unless you have that beast under perfect control at all times you should not be permitted to take him on the street. I hope you are heavily insured, lady. That dog of yours could put you under water for the rest of your life. Dear Ah Laidert: My sympathy to the woman whose stepdaughters invite their mother over whenever theiy feel like it and arit h«r to stay for meals. 1 «Iso have stepdaughteri who try to rearrange my Ilf«. (Hie cMnt is 13). Their father isn’t much help..JSe asks them to report on every telephone call and visitor who comes to the house. Almost every morning he leaves notes instructing me to “make pancakes for the kids” or “cWn up the girls’ closets today.” He flatly refuses to do me small favors because I have a car and "errands are not a man’s job,” (He passes the cleaners and drugstore every night but he won’t stop). All I hear is what a lovely home I have and how lucky I am. No mention of the home I am making for his six motherless children. Please, Ann, tell this knucklehead how much it would cost him to hire a housekeeper to take care of his kids. Also tell him that he would be doing ALL the errands if I weren’t around. — Older And Wiser Dear 0 and W: That’s a marriage? It sounds more like an armed camp, with your husband and children on one side and you on the other. I hope your letter was written at the end of a bad day. If It’s no better than it sounds, why do you stay? Dear Ann Landers: I started to read your column when I was 11.1 didn’t think I’d need you until I was at least 16, but here I am, two years early. I talk too much. The kids at school call me Blabbermouth. I hate the name but I can’t keep quiet. Please help me. — Shuuaed Dear S: Most “Blabbermouths" are afraid if they don’t say something people will think they are stupid. Nothing could be further from the truth. Force yourself to listen. REALLY listen. You will be amazed at what you can learn when your mouth is shut. Is aleoMiim ralalag yoir life? Kww the daager tlgMlt and what to d*.
