Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta t« —THI LITHlMDdf HMALD — Wediwsdey, Janwry 1t74Circulation systems improve with increased exercising By JEAN SHARP CP Womeo's Editor TORONTO (CP) - It’s like peppemnint flavoring in medicine, if you need exercise, choose an exercise you consider fun and it's easier to take. Don Payne of the YMCA says most of the people who need to increase exercise need it to improve the work of their cardiovascular systems THE BETTER HALF "When you’re working, you need oxygen in the muscles you're using. Good circulation IS where the crunch is, and that’s the work of the heart." To keep it toned, Mr. Payne says he recommends running, swimming, cross-country skiing, bicycling. Mr. Payne does fitness testing for the YMCA to help people determine whether they do need exercise, and By Barnes “At last we'll get even with the auto insurance compony for those otrocious rates it charges!" ONE-DAY TRUCK LOAD FABRIC SALE REMNANTS and ENDS Factory Direct To You 702 Wing Airport THURSDAY. JAN. 31st ONLY 10 A.M. TO 3 P.M. what sort would benefit them most “We tell people, ‘These are the things you can do’. We give them precautions about over-doing, suggest Iww to build in a proifM%ssioii. We suggest how to make exercise enjoyable. “It you tell someone to exercise, that’s fine, if he likes what you tell him to do. If you tell him to run and he doesn’t like to run, that’s nor use to him. He may do It for a few weeks while he’s gungho, but then he’ll stop. ' “A lot of sports haven’t the benefit for the cardiovascular system that people think they should. In squash or trainis there’s a big effort, then you stop, then another effort. The heart doesn’t really get the sustained push it needs. “If someone does need muscular endurance exercises, we say do a few a day. "A few we can direct toward exercise groups. The social aspect seems to help people stick with it.” The Y’s Toronto fitness testing began about two years ago. Mr. Payne says the number of people coming in on their own or referred by a doctor is increasing steadily They do 15 tests a week, and he says they are booked a month ahead. Similar testing prc^rams are done in Ys in Montreal, Edmonton, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Hamilton. “We start with a medical history geared toward things that woiud affect their state of fitness or their score on a test Is there a history of heart trouble? Do they smoke? What level of exercise are they doing? Others are safety problems, back, blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy.” They test lung volume, grip strength, measure body fat with calipers and test the heart’s efficiency with a bicycle gadget attached to a cardiograph Then they put the customer throu^ a few muscular endurance tests, push-ups, sit-ups, chest raises. Then they use conversion tables to decide where Uie customer rates.

Five is the average score. The level we’d like to see people at 1$ seven. “For men the fat percentage ideal is nine to 13 per cent The average we see is about 15,”    ■ Nun enrols in police academy DETROIT (AP) - ISister Joan Desmond, a Roman Catholic nun, wanted to learn more about juvenile counselling for her job with the department of public safety at the University of Detroit. “As a nun of course, I just couldn’t go into the streets for the basic information I needed,” she says Instead, Sister Joan enrolled at the Detroit Police Academy and has successfully completed the course. She will return to the university job this week and will split her time be,tween a motorbike patrol and counselling. She also will help supervise guards hired on campus “My classes gave me a wealth of practical background,” said Sister Joan, who grew up in suburban Bloomfield Hills and graduated from Marygrove, a private girls’ college. There were some surprises at the academy, “Something I just never realized before,” she said. “The police are a quasi -military group. So we even had to learn how to march together. But, its been a great learning experience.” By SHIRLEY HORNE Christian Science Monitor What if you could speak in whispers to one person and in normal tones to another at the same time? Dolphins can do something like this. Scientist John Lilly thinks these marin« mammals are quite close to humans in intelligence. Pointing out that in the future, we may be talking to the inhabitants of other planets. Dr. Lilly says that now is a good time for man to begin to communicate with beings from a different environment. And dolphins are the most suitable earth creature for such an endeavor. Among their many “human” traits are; humor, curiosity, inventiveness, success in problem solving, sustained interests and fears, long • lasting moods, a capacity for friendship, and kindness to the injured. But the dolphin’s most remarkable characteristic is his ability to communicate. Dolphins have two communication emitters, both in the nose, one on each side, and can talk in click • sounds from one emitter while speaking In whistles from the other They can also make jaw -claps to show displeasure, mew, and make rasping sounds- The whistling, a common noise, is melodic and sounds like the chirp of a canary. Dolf^ns also have a third emitter In the larynx which is used In echo - location, similar to radar. Most of their Infor- WeeWhimsy K«vln 3ni wilbeMnttheon|^«nfai Mqwm S«nd your child » qmrtinon to thii p»p« mation is learned this way, giving them 10 times human ability in “hearing.” (However, we have 10 times their ability in the visual sphere in speed, storage capacity, and signal processing.) In echo - location, the dolphin makes clicks which bounce against an object. From the returning echoes he can build up a "picture” of surroundings, ana can distinguish sizes and shapes, in wooden objects, plastics, or metal, as they sound different to him. Because he uses echo -location, he is able to do this in murky water and at night. In one experiment to test the dolphin’s abilities, metal bars were set up m an upright position in his pool at night. The dolphin never collided with the bars, as echo - location guided him through. An attempt was made to confuse him by playing a recording of the echo - location sounds made during a previous experiment, but the dolphin was able to sort out the real echoes from the man - made ones. In 300 B.C. Aristotle said the voice of the dolphin in air is like that of a human: that he pronounces “vowels” and combinations of “vowels,” but has trouble saying vowel -consonant combinations. This has been proved In niany recent experiemnts. Dr. J. Dreher of Lockheed Company, studying dolphins for spaceage information, has separated 60 “words” or areas of conversation. ’The “A” sound was “hello,” the “B” tone Identified a female, “D” tone was a male, “C, E, F” tones were used for discussion, emotion, or news. Dr. D. Batteau of Point Mugu, Calif., established a 13-word vocabulary. He invented an electric “translator” connected to a hydrophone. This device translated English into dolphin whistles, so that commands could be given such as “hit the ball” or “swim to shore ” The dolphins would repeat these orders and obey them. One of Dr. Lilly’s experiments Involved ttis dolphins ability to distinguish tones. After tiie doctor said the number "I, 2, 3, 4, 5,” the dolphin repeated them, realizing the “9” was the end of the group because of the change in inflection. In everything he does, the dolphin shows his natural playfulness. He is a great inventor of games. In one instance, four of them swam after a moray eel which hid in a crevice in the wall. The dolphins bothered it from both sides of the wail, but were unable to dislodge it. Finally one of them killed a scorpion fish (which has harp spines), poked at the eel with it, and got the eel out of the crevice The dolphin caught it, took it to the middle of the tank, and released it when the game was over. Dolphin’s play is not like a dog’s or cat’s; their games are often sustained for an hour or more, they are creative, and they involve cooperation. Favorite dolphin games are chasing, tag, teasing, follow the leader, hide and seek, leap frog, king of the castle, water polo with any floating object, Dasketball, and bowling. Sometimes they like to come up suddenly in front of someone in the water, as if to say “Boo!” Dolphins are said not to hke black, and may squirt water and pebbles on anyone wearing it. (They like blue.) We can understand the difficulty a dolphin has in trying to imitate us when we realize that he is used to transmitting Information under water, but must now speak to us in the air, using his nose, not his tongue and mouth as we do. As he has no vocal cords, sounds are caused by the blowhole vibrating tike a Up when air is blown past it. Dolphins can be trained to "Sing” in the air when doing this. Dr. Lilly says if the dolphin IS in close contact,with humans who talk to him'every day, he will begin to raise his blowhole (which is on top of his head) out of the water and make humanoid noises. His air - sounds are attempts to Induce us to use his mode of communication. But when making humanoid noises, he Is trying to communicate with us in our mode. Scientists believe that the dolphin possesses at least rudimentary calculating ability The dolphin must surface to breathe at least once every six minutes; because he dives to different depths for food, he must estimate the time re<)uired to reach the air again, based on Ms maximum speed. Experts feel that this kind of computation is too complex to be the result of simple instinct. An important observation made by Dr. Lilly is that dolphins act the way we expect them to. lliey will learn if given the opportunity- And, in the process, they may teach us something about communication.
