Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD TuMdiy, Janu.ry 28, 1975 Positive ions to blame Hot bath, fresh air said way to end office blahs OTTAWA (CP) A hot bath and frequent doses of fresh air may be the ideal prescription for office workers who suffer from mid- afternoon fatigue, headaches and tension. Blame it all on those nasty positive ions. Dr. Edward Napke, a mem- ber of the International Socie- ty for Biometeorology, said an atmosphere with a high concentration of positive ions may produce feelings of irritability and fatigue, as well as a lower resistance to respiratory ailments, including influenza. Ions are invisible positive and negative electrically- charged particles released in billions by cosmic rays, radioactive elements in the soil, storms, waterfalls and winds.. Dr. Napke is employed by the federal government in its -Tin' HeraU- Family poison-control and adverse- reaction program. But his interest in positive and negative ions goes back 20 years and has little to do with his present job. The Society for Biometeorology has published reports on the ef- fects of weather and ioniza- tion on life, growth and vegetation for years. Medical and scientific' ex- perts say negative ions have a rejuvenating and stabilizing effect on the human system. But these beneficial negative ions are swept away by modern air- conditioning equipment found what Dr. Napke calls the "window-sealed glass and steel conglomerate." Thus, the air in office build- ings becomes supercharged with potentially harmful posi- liv ions. In an interview, Dr. Napke proposed some temporary remedies for those who often feel run-down. "Most people know they feel good after a bath but they don't know he said. "In fact, the hot bath and subsequent sweating result in a neutralizing of positive ions and eliminate detrimental salts from the body." Adjudicator named Dale Wentworth of Kelowna has been named as one of the adjudicators at the forth-coming Kiwan- is Music Festival. Mr. Wentworth, who owns his own studio in Kelowna, will be judging the ac- cordion and guitar classes at the festival for the first time. He received his musical training in Ottawa and Toronto. This lady loves getting cat calls GRAND FORD, N.D. (CP) A cat call is a welcome event for Bonnie Williams. Each day, the Grand Fords woman receives between 30 and 40 telephone calls from people requesting information about her cat adoption program. This month, with impetus from a local humane association's adopt a cat month promotional campaign, Mrs. Williams has helped engineer the adoption of 40 felines. "They have a right to she explained. Mrs. Williams, who devotes about 60 hours per week taking care of tabbies, began the adoption program in October, 1973, and has kept records of the number of cats placed in foster homes since last February. In the past year, she has arranged for the adoption of about 900 cats and built up a network .of 45 foster homes. Mrs. Williams praised the families who have opened their 'doors to the wayward animals. "These people are marvelous. Each family has its own limits. They let me know when they have all the cats they can handle. Some have handled 20 to 30 cats." The Williams' household often takes the appearance of a makeshift animal shelter, as the family acts as a temporary keeper of cats until permanent foster homes are located. During the holiday season, for example, 16 cats made themselves at home at the William's residence. January adop- tions have reduced that total by ten, but the six remaining cats are still forced to share accommodations with other houseguests, including a dog, a rabbit, several guinea pigs, ger- bils, a song sparrow, a parrot and tropical fish.

(CP) Students at St. John's College received an unexpected holi- day when they were sent home early. The boiler which supplies heat to classrooms went off during the night because of dirty nozzles. School principal Rev. J. L. x Shanks said that Brant County Roman Catholic separate school board policy is that if the temperature is not at least 60 degrees by 10 a.m. classes can be dismissed. to pot Members of the Old- man River Potter's Guild went completely to pot over the' past weekend when they attended an intensive two-day pottery workshop at the Bowman Arts Centre. Guest in- structor was Les Manning, head of the ceramics de- partment at the Banff School of Fine Art and resident potter at the Cal- gary Allied Arts Centre Mr. Manning, shown a- bove and at right, studied at the Alberta College of Art for four years. So in- formative were the work- shop sessions that some local potters feared they might not be able to re- member all or even half of what Mr. Man- ning suggested and de- monstrated. The work- shop was sponsored by the Alberta Potters' As- sociation. U.S. court holds firm on abortion WASHINGTON United States Supreme Court Monday let stand a lower court ruling invalidating a Minnesota law that prohibited abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy unless needed to preserve the life or health of the mother. The Supreme Court dismiss- ed on procedural grounds an appeal by state officials from a lower court ruling that the law and regulations adopted under it were uncon- stitutional. The court also declined to review a decision of a separate lower court striking down a regulation adopted by a hospital in Massachusetts restricting abortions. The Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that states may not prohibit abortions before a fetus becomes viable, which the court said can occur as early as 24 weeks into a pregnancy. Minnesota passed a law prohibiting abortions after the 20th week except to preserve the life or health of the mother. In addition, the Minnesota state board of health es- tablished standards for abor- tion clinics and required them to maintain records. RULING UNCLEAR In the Massachusetts case, Hale Hospital of Haverhill adopted a regulation prohibiting elective abortions. The hospital said the 1973 Supreme Court ruling left un- clear whether public hospitals have a duty to permit such operations. It said the answer would be important to hospitals throughout the U.S. A three judge federal court in Minneapolis said the Minnesota law would ''interfere with the right of the woman to secure an abor- tiori free of state interference." The law says the state may restrict abor- tions after 20 weeks because the fetus is "potentially viable" after that time. The lower court said the board of health regulations for abortion clinics were "so in- volved and complex as to sti- fle the formation and opera- tion of any such facilities." Lawyers for women challenging the Haverhill hospital regulations argued that "a public hospital may not do what the state is no longer permitted to do."
