Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, July 22, 1970 READY-AIM Thirteen members of the Dorothy Gooder School for Retarded Children Summer Day Camp try their luck at a dart throwing booth on the midway of Whoop-Up Days. They were accompanied by 13 leaders who took them to do and see all the "exciting" activities of Children's Day at the fair. One of the girls even won a turtle to the group's glee. The day camp is an extension of the Community Summer Program. Request By Federal Government Tough Consumers To Cut Inflation OTTAWA (CP) The prices and incomes commis- sion established by the feder- al government is calling on consumers to be tough cus- tomers, selective in their shopping. In effect, it is also an invita- tion to Canadian homemak- ers, who make many of the day-to-day purchases for Hie family, to join the fight against inflation. It's not a case of having to be familiar, with the intrica- cies of economic and fiscal policy: The commission has a simple, straightforward ex- planation of inflation. "Year after year, as prices keep going up, each dollar we spend buys less and it says in its pamphlet, called Fight Inflation, Save Jobs. "That's inflation, and it must not be allowed to con- tinue. But getting it under control presents serious prob- lems." PRICES MUCH HIGHER The commission says that prices paid by consumers today are 20 per cent higher than they were only five years ago. In 1969 alone, prices rose by 4H per cent, the largest yearly increase since the Ko- rean war in 1951. Measures to restrict spend- ing by individuals, business and governments have been in force for some time both in Canada and the United States. And the commission says that if applied long and se- verely enough, these mea- sures alone would eventually break the inflationary spiral. "In the meantime, however, it will be difficult to avoid temporary but painful side ef- unemployment and loss of production affect- ing every region of Canada. "There is a way of fighting inflation that can save jobs and production. "That's through co-operative action on the part of all the main groups in the community First Woman As Governor Of University HAMILTON (CP) The board of governors of McMaster University has appointed its rirst woman member to the 3oard, Frances R.

She and other co owners recently sold their nterests in the station to Sel- tirk Holdings. Other new governors are Dr. Gordon MacFarlane of Hamil- on and Howard Brown of Bur- ington.

The commission also warns the consumer that at today': interest rates, it costs a grea deal to borrow money.

Unsafe Seats Cause Deaths TORONTO (CP) Almost half the deaths of children killed in traffic accidents while passengers in automo- biles might have been prevent- ed if tire children had been in safe car seals and wearing specially designed harnesses or the cars' seat belts. In Ontario in 19C8 55 chil- dren were killed in such acci- dents and were injured. Every province could produce comparable figures. George Ham of the Ontario Safety League says tests in the United States suggest that at 'oast 40 per cent of the deaths could have been prev- ented and the injuries greatly reduced by the use of proper restraining equipment. He says such types of equip- ment do exist, though they are hard to find and there are no Canadian government standards for them. The safety league is a non- profit organization supported largely by voluntary contribu- tions from industry and busi- ness. Mr. Ham is manager of the family safety department. He says the ordinary car seat sold for children is worse than useless except for keep- ing them from climbing around in the car or for pre- venting a bump in a sudden stop situation. AREN'T ANCHORED "They are not anchored to the car frame. What you are doing with that type of seat is adding another 10 pounds to a child if he becomes a projec- tile iti a collision." Mr. Ham says two major car manufacturers make safety seats, but do little to promote them. "The seats are practically unknown even to their deal- ers. You almost have to go ir with the model number to gel them to order one." For older children there are harnesses available thai safety league experts consider adequate. They range from to Mr. Ham says the age ol the child should determine the kind of equipment you shoulc use. "You have to have the righl restraint, wear it properly and wear it all the time. Peo- ple say, 'But I'm only going around the corner.' The ma- jority of c o 11 i s i o n s occur within 25 miles of home at speeds of 40 miles an hour or less." DON'T HO.LD ON LAP A baby up to six months old should travel in a covered padded bassinet on the back seat. The covering should be wrapped right around the bas- smet so the baby cannot be thrown out, and the bassinet should be held in place by the back seat lap belt. "An infant should never be held on his mother's lap in the front seat. Under impact he could be crushed between her and the front panel. "For children old enough1 to sit by themselves, a specially designed car seat should be used, preferably in the back seat. It should have torso and lap protection and be held down by the regular car belt. "For active children up to five years old or 50 pounds, harnesses are recommended because they let the child move around as well as pro- viding protection. They must strap snugly around the chest and pelvic region and be firm- ly anchored to the car frame." PRINCESS AND HOPEFUl-Miss Marilyn Gray, Edmonton, and Alberta dairy princess for 1969, congratulates Miss Nancy Becker, 18, Pincher Creek, after her win in the southern Alberta dairy princess competition held in Lethbridge recently. In order to win the southern Alberta contest, Miss Becker had to display her knowledge of dairy cattle and milking practices. Miss Becker will now travel to Edmonton, where she will compete Wednesday with other regional finalists for the 1970 crown. Jvi op. 'own, Visiting in the home of Mr. nd Mrs. L. B.

A glance at the advertising sections of maga- zines and newspapers leaves no doubt as to the in- terest of Canadian people in their weight. Writers of advertisements are 'attempting to con- vince the obese that if they will only bathe in water containing salt'this food or buy that exercising machine or take this or that drug, a beautiful figure will result. Everyone at one time or another has heard or even tried fad diets which most often prove unsatis- factory in one way pr another. One girl ate nothing but bananas the week prior to an important prom so she could fit a certain low- backed dress. She ended up with so many pimples on her back as a result of the diet that she couldn't wear the dress anyway. Losing weight isn't a breeze or a light-hearted matter. Your health and length of life is at stake. Wearing elastic garments may improve appear ance but does not reduce weight. Active exercise such as walking for a full hour is excellent exercise for the body but only uses 200 calories. Therefore exercise and passive massage must be used in co-ordination with control of diet. Exercising is no excuse for eating more! Reducing foods which sell at fancy prices should be looked upon with suspicion. Some low-calorie foods contain laxatives or dan- gerous drugs such as thyroid extract or pike-root but most are wholesome, nutrious and sometimes just as delicious as their counterparts. The big advantage of calorie foods is that those using them can count the calories on the package and as they are used. However, beware of products that have half the fat content. Some kinds of yogurt, as one example, have only half the fat content of whole milk and therefore half the fat calories. However, calories also come from car- bohydrates and protein, so in fact the dieting yogurt has 125 calories per glass and the whole milk type, 170 calories. Less, yes, but not half the total calories. Diet breads may also be deceiving when they are either sliced thinner or the loaf is smaller in diameter than the conventional one. Neither of which deserves the higher price. Protein diets are not beneficial either, because ex- cess amino acids (from proteins) break down into glu- cose (sugar) and fat which are deposited in the tissues. A diet which includes an inadequate supply of amino acids is also dangerous because this causes a negative nitrogen balance which results in death after a prolonged period of time. No permanent weight loss will be achieved with the kind of-self-imposed salt restricted diet that is possible for a person to undertake in the home. Symp- toms are fatigue, kidney mal-function and low nitro- gen balance. A hot bath or steam only results in a temporary loss of weight by sweating and the water will .be quickly replaced. The various soaps and pastes which are supposed to remove fat are not considered of value by most. Medical preparations may contain laxatives which result in a temporary loss of water or thyroid ex- tracts which cause increased metabolism. This can be accompanied by nervousness and irritability. In my opinion there is one answer to the over- weight problem suffered by most Canadians and that is a little elbow exercise. "Push away from the table sooner." The above information was obtained from various available in the local public libraries. BINGO MOOSE HALL 1234 3rd AVENUE NORTH WEDNESDAY at P.M.
