Canadian false teeth free of radioactivity Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Canadians who have false teeth don't have to share the British worry about their artificial choppers being a radioactive health risk.

The Reuters news agency says that a special report by the British National Radio- logical Protection Board has discovered that radiation from false teeth made with the uranium brighteners ex- ceeds limits set by the Inter- national Commission on Radiological Protection. In Ottawa this week, an of- ficial of the Atomic Energy Control Board said that it must issue licenses for such uses of a radioactive com- pound as uranium and that no such licenses have in fact been issued. Reuters says that three of every four British dentists use procelain containing uranium when they prescribe or make up artificial dentures or crowns. By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor Lynda Middelhoek thinks twice before she pours any water down the drain. For the past nine days, she and her two pre school children have been living in a house without running water. Ms. Middelhoek has been hauling her family's drinking water in covered plastic containers from her mother's home in Lethbridge to the house she rents, four and one half miles north of the city. She has lugged water for chores pail by murky pail from a dugout 100 yards from the house. She must take her washing to a laundromat and bath at her mother's home. Ms. Middelhoek brought her story to The Herald because she felt Key Realty, from whom she rents the house, was not responding to her complaints. She says repeated requests for aid from the firm brought several promises but no action. Ms. Middelhoek says she can- not help but wonder if the firm's lack of haste in solving her problem is related to her finan- cial status she is a single parent receiving assistance from the department of health and social development in order to pay the monthly rent. She says she suspects there is a problem perhaps a frozen pipe somewhere' between the reser- voir from which water is drawn and the complicated pumping purification station sheltered in a lean to recently added to the house. Ms. Middelhoek says she awoke last Wednesday to find no water at all coming into the house. She immediately con- tacted the water softening firm which installed the pumping equipment and was told it was not their responsibility. She next contacted Key Realty who promised to investigate the matter as soon as possible. She says she had trouble getting in touch with the agent from whom she rented the property and by last Friday, when the problem was still not remedied, she went to the agency herself and talked to her realtor who said something would be done. On Saturday she phoned the firm's realty maintenance man herself, who knew nothing about her problem, but promised to look into it. Ms. Middelhoek says at this point she began to feel extremely frustrated, because it seemed no one was taking her word about the situation. She says her social worker con- tacted Key Realty on Monday and was told a backhoe and plumber would be dispatched Tuesday to solve the problem. .Early this morning the equip- ment still had not materialized, although the realtors sent a water softening serviceman who reiterated what he had told Ms. Middelhoek initially: that the problem was not with his firm's equipment, but probably with the piping. Ms. Middelhoek has also con- tacted the health unit in Coaldale and the landlord and tenants' boar.a, both of whom say the matter is out of their jurisdic- tion. She said she was accustomed to fending for herself, and would have repaired the system if she had been able, but its workings had never been properly explain- ed to her. She says her realty agent had said he knew about the pumping unit, and would take care of it. Fraser Baalim, manager of Key Realty, says his firm has done "everything in its power" to help Ms. Middelhoek, but main- tains the fault is hers in the first place as the pipe froze up because she did not take necessary steps to lower the in- take valve deeply enough into the reservoir. "There's no way in which we haven't been fair to he said in a telephone interview Thurs- day morning. "There's a dugout on the property, and we'll have someone from the water softeners out there right away." Mr. Baalim said the reservoir ice was too thin to permit anyone to check the water pipe at its centre. He said his firm had tried to engage several different Community calendar St. Patrick's CWL will be celebrating its 50th Jubilee Sunday, with a mass at noon celebrated by Bishop Paul O'Byrne followed by a luncheon at p.m. at Ericksen's.

CHILD DIES VANCOUVER (CP) The question of flammability of clothing has been taken under review by a special com- mittee of the federal government, a spokesman for the consumer affairs depart- ment'said after a child had been burned to death. The Alberta Women's Bureau has commissioned a Calgary advertising agency to conduct, research on women engaged in non traditional careers, for a booklet to be published sometime this spring. Approximately is be- ing spent initially by the AWB to commission the research, designed to encourage women to realize their full job poten- tial, according to Catherine Arthur, director of the bureau. She said the project is being done piecemeal, so no total cost for the complete project is available. The advertising firm, McVean Advertising Agency of Calgary, is seeking names of women throughout the province "doing work that is not conventionally 'women's work'... who are outstanding hi any job outside of the traditional Miss Arthur says the booklet is one of the bureau's International Women's Year projects, and she hopes it will be completed as 'soon as possible, and available to the public "no later than three months" from now. Although reluctant to dis- cuss the cost of the booklet, Miss Arthur said it would "pay. great dividends" if dis- tributed in schools throughout the province. She said the publication would be aimed particularly at school counsellors "to shake them up a little" and improve counselling available to female students. "The booklet will be geared to all age Miss Arthur explained, "we're hop- ing it will have something to say to older women who are dissatisfied with their jobs and would like to switch to something different, as well as younger women choosing a career." Miss Arthur said she ex- pects the federal government will announce changes in policy direction regarding Women's Year on Monday. "It's quite clear that no federal funds will be made available to us provincially, but we'll be given a choice of programs we may opt to im- plement within Alberta for which Ottawa will foot the she said. "There will be.more of a provincial instead of a regional focus for she added.
