Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE Secretary to king of hotliners holds her own with gruff boss VANCOUVER (CP) "I have one of the best bosses in said Gladys Johnsen. "I'm sure that will surprise a lot of people, but that is honestly how I feel." It will surprise a lot of people because Gladys Johnsen's boss is Jack Webster, the king of Vancouver radio hotliners. To thousands of CJOR listeners he is known as an ill tempered bad-mouth with a penchant for rudeness, but Mrs Johnsen knows that's just Webster being Webster. "If he's being particularly vicious and nasty, it sounds terrible, but it's all a big act. "People will phone and tell me to tell him to quit being so mean and they say: "How can you stand that man7" "I have a stock answer: 'Well, sometimes I wonder how he stands me.' Mrs. Johnsen, 29, has been his secretary for three years. "I have often tried to say what I actually do. I screen calls. "My most important function, I suppose, is programming finding and booking guests to come on the show. I also write cheques, do the books, open the mail and give advice to people who have all sorts of problems If you phone Webster's office, the first person you will take to it Gladys Johnsen. She might be the last There are six phone lines, almost always jammed. When he broadcasts from his downtown studio in Gastown, he can put callers directly on the air but when he's at the Empress Hotel in Victoria, she stays in Vancouver and has complete control over the calls When her boss says gruffly, "Next she had better have one ready and it had better be on topic. Mrs Johnsen said that after a few months on the job, she developed an instinct which is seldom wrong about which calls will be good "You get very callous about people But, at the same time, I think I like people more as a result of doing this job. "I have learned to be much more tolerant. I used to wonder how people could be so stupid as to get their lives in such a mess. Now I know that many people are just victims of circumstance. "Something must be wrong with the information services that are available when so many people don't know who else to turn to for help." Yes, she said, sometimes the pressure does get to her and she feels like quitting. "And then I remember what it was like when I was pregnant and had a few months off. "I used to listen to Jack's show and the worst part was listening to it and not knowing what was going on during the commercials. That's when the best things happen. "Jack and his guest would come back on the air laughing and Jack would say: 'Well, we can't talk about that on the air, can we'" "And I wouid just sit there, fuming, thinking: 'What have they been doing without And what does Jack Webster think of his secretary? "It's a one-of-a-kind job, this one. Gladys is first-class We both have a reputation for being somewhat brusque, but the ability to keep telephone calls to a minimum of three minutes is very important, because everyone wants to tell you their whole life sotry." He gives her such public endearments as "What's the matter with you, woman? Are you sleeping this But, he says, that's just show business. "When you hear me saying, 'Gladys, get this' or 'Gladys get that', more often than not I've got what I want and I'm stalling for time." Screening calls for air time even with her boss' rude remarks, Gladys Johnsen still likes him. Soybean formula saves babies with feeding problems VANCOUVER (CP) The lives of at least 10 Vancouver babies who developed feeding problems shortly after birth have been saved in recent months through an intravenous feeding formula containing soybean fat. Dr. Margaret Pendray, a full-time pediatrician at Vancouver General Hospital's intensive care nursery and assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of B C says at least 10 of the 30 babies treated so far would have died without the formula Dr Pendray and her colleagues combine soybean fat with protein hydrolysates proteins broken down into ammo acids and peptides along with dextrose, minerals and vitamins Dr Pendray said. "There are a couple of youngsters who are showing some signs of liver problems These babies had to undergo surgery for an abdominal abnormality after birth and subsequently presented complications She said it is difficult to determine whether the original defects are to blame or the formula is lacking an important nutrient. PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT (Played Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Uiwtain) The soybean fat formula has been recognized in Europe for nearly 10 years as an effective life-saving aid to newborns in trouble. In Canada, the health protection branch gave the green light to researchers and doctors here less than two years ago, sanctioning use of the formula. Dr Pendray credits Dr. Avid Wretling, head of the department of nutrition at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, for his full-scale research into the soybean fat formula "He has done the most work with it and we took our lead from she said. For many years, newborns could not be fed fats intravenously because of serious side-effects, including high fever and bleeding disorders. "'These fats originally came from cottonseed oil and their use was quickly prohibited." Scientists have since credited soybean oil with astonishing successes. In fact, soybean oil fats closely resemble human fat particles, which may explain their compatibility in the human body Candidates for the soybean formula include premature infants unable to take food orally in the first few days of life and those born with congenital malformations which must be corrected surgically within the first week of life.
