Columbus discovered t Ii e West Indies in 1492, though ho did not proceed the short dis- tance farther to the great west- ern continent. His courageous voyage was followed by a cen- tury or more of adventurers who explored and often plund- ered the mainland of Central and South America. Manyh on- est reports were written. Bui modern historians doubt the re- ports of Amerigo Vespucci who claimed to have discovered the new world and boldly nam- ed it America in his own honor. Documents written 1500s are rare and in the rather sketchy, hence they are hard to clarify and verily. However, Amerigo Vespuci embroidered his reports with numerous de- tails. Though in one case ho gave a different set of times and distances in a second ver- sion of the story. These elabor- ate details made it easier for later historians to verify Ame- rigo's amazing claims to fame. Many now suspect that this Italian merchant might have been a hig phoney. Vespucci was born in 1451 Early in life he became a clerk for the Medicis, the rich and powerful merchant family who ruled Florence with a rod of iron. Apparently he pleased his GOREN ON BRIDGE EY CHAUtES H. GOREN TO Itn: IT cfctHn Trfinwl Nor tii-South vulnerable. South deals.

Other elaborate details de- ails describe believable ex- plorations along the east coast of South America. In 1505, Vespucci visited Co- .umbus in Spain and the great man accepted his version of :he western continent. Perhaps :his gave him Uie confidence to >ubtisli his stories two years ater. He boldly claimed to ba he discoverer of the New mainland plus tho right to name it America in his own honor. Later historians found Inae curacies and unlikely details to discredit his stories. Perhaps tie was merely an armchair adventurer who compiled ports from genuine New Work explorers to glorify himself. A1 this late date it is imposible to prove that he crossed the At lantic.

Ryan Hiring 45 to 65 parley set EDMONTON (CP) Prem- ier Peter Loughccd says he in- tends to follow up approval of the Individual Rights Protec- tion Act with a conference lo determine major difficulties of mployers in hiring persons ged 45 to 65. He told the legislature one of he saddest instances in society are cases of men with families, n good health and with skills, vho go to a succession of per- >onnel offices and find "there only one living wrong he's 51." When a society made so much of youth, there was a re- sponsibility owed to those in :he older age bracket. The premier was speaking during second reading oi the jill, which will be presented for :hird readi at the fall session of the k.jislaturc, folowing lublic hearings this summer. He said he intends to call to- jether all major employers in a conference to aski "What are the roadblocks, the obstacles you now face in hiring people in tills age group, What can wo do as a government to over- come Lhe The premier said preventing age discrimination in employ- ment is one aim of the new rights bill, but said this could not be accomplished by the legislature alone. Jack Cookson (PC La. combe) said governments drawing up laws relating to labor unions, professional as- sociations and, in particular, Hutterites, would have difficult problems interpreting the In- dividual Rights Proteclion Act and the Bill of Rights.

Vibrator won't aid weight loss Dear Dr. Lamb I have read somewhere that it is dan- gerous to sit too close to the TV and I am concerned be- cause my grandchildren con- stantly sit in front of the TV set. Is this hard on their eyes? Dear Reader The Ameri- can Optometric Assn. re- cently published a little pam- phlet on this and they point out that under proper conditions the TV isn't as much a strain on the eyes as close work such as reading or sewing. Further they state it doesn't hurt the child to sit up close, but he will be belter off sitting at a dis- tance of at least five limes the width of the screen. This pro- vides a sharper and better de- fined picture. Normal room lighting and avoiding glare is all right for the lighting condi- tions and it is good to have the television set in direct line with the sight to prevent assuming uncomforable body positions which can he tiring. Children who persist in sitting up close to the TV set are sometimes nearsighted and probably need an eye examination. There has been at least one well-documented bad effect from children watching TV and that is in the children who do it persistently eliminating nor, mal physical activity and play. They become so inactive that they get weak and their mus- cles lire easily and they expe, riencc a constant sensation of fatigue, just like the office worker w h o doesn't get any physical activity. Children who have headaches and excessive fatigue were found to have the TV problem loo much TV and not enough physical activ- ity. The treatmcnl for that is E airly obvious, Dear Dr. I.amh All I need to lose is about seven or eight jounds. It seems 1 can't do thai even with watching what I eat I never eat sweets or use sugar in my tea or coffee. I have been Lold that a belt vibrator will give me enough exercise to use up the calories I take in. Coult you tell me how many calories a day I would burn up will about 20 minutes on the be.s1 vibrator. Dear Header You will be lucky if you bum up any cal cries on the vibrator. The onl; way that one burns up eal ories is by doing muscular ex ercise or something that will actually increase metabolism of the Ixxly. Vibrators really don't do either. They make a lot of people feel better and sometimes they help with ton- ing up muscles. Why don't you just add minutes of walking a clay to your regular physical activity j and be careful not to add any- thing else to your diet. If yon just walk 30 minutes a day ev- ery day, the probabilities arc I hat your seven or eight pounds will be gone in a year's lime. SLEMSTOBt )f FERIM'FUM A DIFFERENT rvPE.'.'
