Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THI UTMMIDOI HBULD Saturday, July 7, 1973 Infant survival rate up BOSTON (CP) Massachu- setts General Hospital says it has an infant intensive-care program has the highest survival rate ever recorded for newborns with respiratory prob- lems. "The single most common kind of disease that makes ei- ther a newborn or a child criti- cally ill is something affecting the respiratory or breathing says Dr. Danie C. Shannon, director of the hospi- tal's pediatric intensive care unit. newborn with severe respiratory disease has a sur- vival chance here of 70 pa- cent, according to last year's Dr. Shannon says. "That's about 20 per cent better than any published figures from anywhere else for that kind of problem." The success of the unit has made it New England's refer- ral centre for the most critically ill newborn babies. Doctors attribute this success to two main factors: a team ap- proach to treatment which brings together specialists from various fields for concentrated care; and a transportation sys- tem which not only gets the in- fant to the unit swiftly, but gets help to the infant before he reaches the hospital.

She was en route here to help the town celebrate its 90th an- niversary and to win a few votes for the lajxnr party in the national elections scheduled for Oct. 29. At 75, after 45 years of con- tinuous public service as am- bassador, labor minister, for- eign minister and premier, the former Golda Meyerson of Mil- waukee is starting a new cam- paign. Two weeks ago, to the relief of the divided party, she an- nounced her willingness to stand for another term as pre- mier. Her decision averted a bitter dispute among the com- peting factions within her party. Had she not run, a full-blown power struggle would have erupted among the supporters of her three most likely success- ors: finance minister Pinbas Sapir, defense minister Moshe Dayan and deputy premier Yi- gal Man.

Instead, her decision effect- ively removed the issue of suc- cession from the campaign and made it virtually certain that her labor party will go on to win the plurality k has enjoyed since the foundation of the state. It was not an easy decision for Mrs. Meir. She apparently was sincere late last year when she announced her intention to retire at the end of her pres- ent term.

She want- ed to quit while she was ahead. Recalling this in an interview in her Tel Aviv office the other day, she said: "God knows that I wanted to go (from office) and that I should have gone. But when a person spends all his grown-up life in a political party that is important to him maybe it's weakness, I don't know, but I never could go contrary to the wish of my party. It means too much to me." But, she was asked, wouldn't her running again merely paste over and postpone the inevitable intra-party battle that still will have to be fought after she re- tires? "If I manage to hold out for four more she said, knocking her knuckles on tbe wooden top of her desk, "I can't believe that something won't happen to bring the party closer together. I hope so, any- way." There is no question but that her decision was a popular one with the majority of the Israeli public. In a recent public opin- ion poll, 64 per cent wanted Mrs, Meir to continue in of- fice, compared to 27 per cent who favored Mr. Dayan. Her day in Rosh Pinna was typical of the patient, low-key campaign style that Mrs. Meir favors. It was also illustrative of the minimum of ceremony with which the bead of the Is- raeli government moves among the Mrs. Meir people. spent six hours fulfilling an obligation that some politicians would have brushed off with a 45-minute drop-in. "People ten me I am crazy to spent that sort of time in a small place like Rosh Mrs. Meir said in her office tbe next day. "But they are wrong. The fact is I would go crazy sitting behind this desk. If I have learned anything in all these years, it's that I must get out and have that contact with people, otherwise I'd suffocate." Summerfun Community summer program FUN CLUBS: Children throughout Leth- bridge participated in a variety of interesting programs dur- ing this week's summer com- munity project. Leaders from several parks took groups to the Henderson Lake Pool for an afternoon swim; while other youngsters visited the police station. One group took advantage of a craft centre which is located in the civic centre. There they made small clay animals to be used on a paper mache relief of a farm. A number of baseball games were also part of the activities, with individual park groups taking part. Friday, which has been set aside as a special events day, was used this week for a Wheel Bay Rally. Poor weather con- ditions in the early morning threatened the cancellation of the program, but fortunately did not affect planned activi- ties. Children .from all fun clubs were invited to take part, and rode bicycles, 'tricycles, wagons and every imaginable wheeled toy to the civic centre field. Races were scheduled for all classes of vehicles, a safety check for bicycles took place and prizes were awarded for all modes of transportation which were decorated. Another event during Wheel Day was a skin course planned out on the track to test the bike handling ability of the youthful drivers. This coming Friday will mark a Halloween celebration coup- led with a penny carnival as a special event. Women to drive transits TORONTO (CP) Women may be liberated into driving buses for the Toronto Transit Commission before the end of the year because of a shortage of men. James H. Kearns, general manager of the commission, said recently it can't find enough qualified drivers.

"And woman who can meet qualifications will be hired." There have been few appli- cations. Only two women were among the applicants in the first six months of this year and neither was qualified.

Disputed badge dropped PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The Philadelphia Girl Scout Council has decided to drop a proposed merit badge which would have been obtained by completing courses in sex education. The courses would have fea- tured such topics as pregnancy, contraception, menstruation, abortion and rape. In place of the merit badge, the council says it plans to In- stitute an optional four-part "awareness" program. The council backed off from its original plan because of crit- icism from both the Phila- delphia Roman Catholic arch- diocese department of youth and its own National Girl Scoot Council. However, local leaden insist they have not sacrificed the concepts which they say make scouting "more relevant" "The change allows more lati- tude and the girls won't feel as threatened by peer Philadelphia Girl Scout Council spokesman explained. "Chang- ing the badge to a program may have softened the impact, but we stand behind our origi- nal philosophical beliefs." Arcbdiocesan opposition in re- cent weeks has focused on what it calls "negative aspects" of teaching such tilings as sex edu- cation, birth control and abor- tion as part of cially to girls at so impression- able an age as 12 to 14.
