Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, WO THE DOCTOR'S MAIL-BAG Medicinal Iron Vital To Growth 01' Infant By WAYNK 0. BHANBSTADT, BI.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. Infants whose birth weight is normal must be given 1 milli- gram ot iron per kilogram of body weight every day begin- ning at the age of 'three months. The daily dosage should not, however exceed 15 milligrams. Infants with a low birth weight and those with a low hemo- globin level have a special need for iron, Uie one essential ele- ment not found in milk. When such infants are 6 to 8 weeks old they should be given 1.5 to 2 milligrams of iron daily, only part of which will be avail- able in even an iron-enriched diet. The I'est must be given as medicinal iron and should be continued lor five or six weeks after the normal hemo- globin level is readied. Iron-fortified baby cereals and prepared milk formulas with added iron are generally available but often arc not given to those infants who need them most to prevent iron defi- ciency anemia. In most cases the need for supplemental iron disappears by the time the in- fant is IS months old. Q My daughter, 3. liad a head wave test and the trac- ings were abnormal. The doc- tor is giving her medication. What could the tfouble be? A Sounds like epilepsy. Why don't you ask your doctor? Q What would cause my son's head to turn to the side and backward and make him fall? Our doctor looked him over and said there was noth- ing wrong with him but he is getting worse. Could this be epilepsy? If so, what test should be made? A Epilepsy Is a likely diag- nosis. A brain wave or elcc- troencephalographic test should establish the liagnosis and set your son on an appropriate course of treatment. Q What could cause hydro- ccphalus to show up in a teen- ager? Can it be corrected with surgery? Can it cause a glio- blastoma? A _ Hydrocephalus or water on the brain is usually seen in the new-born but it may occur in oldei' children as a result of an infection head injury or a brain tumor that obstructs the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid. It could be the result, not the cause of a glioblastoma, a very malignant type of brain tumor. The treat- ment of the hydrocephalus, sometimes surgical, would de- pend on the cause. Tough Conservation Laws o Revive Alligator Family MIAMI. Fla. (AP> An alli- gator revival, spawned by tougher conservation laws, is replenishing the Florida Ever- glades and other swamps in the U.S. Southeast with the once- vanisliing reptile. Bans on sliipment of hides across state lines and on sale of alligator products in New York and Florida, coupled with tough new penalties for poaching in the Everglades, is rapidly curb- ing the slaughter of this survi- vor of the dinosaur age. Jack Raftery, superintendent of Everglades National Park, said the alligator, freed from the pressure of poachers who Great Milks Strike Over OTTAWA (CP) Tne great Milks strike is over. Ottawa housewife Constance Milks has returned to her household chores with assur- ances of better working condi- tions from her seven children. Mrs. Milks has been on strike since Thursday, when she first placed picket signs oil her front lawn and throughout the house com- plaining that she was quitting until her lazy kids pitched in and helped. On Saturday, her 20-year- old son Danny said his mother had "put her point across." The windows, which she first asked her boys to clean six weeks ago, would be washed. Danny said housework had tended to pile up because he and his brother and sisters weren't home too often be- cause of activities at school. for years profited by selling hides to New York factories for shoes, handbags and other arti- cles, already is multiplying in the Everglades. For the first time in years, al- ligators have reappeared in can- als along heavily-travelled roads. They even have wan- dered recently into residential suburbs. Conservationists say the alli- gator's extinction could have spelled doom for the Ever- glades, a swampy wilderness that has existed since prehisto- ric times in much the same form. Twice in recent years, Ever- glades denizens depended upon gator holes for water in times of drought. Deer and other crea- tures drank from the holes. In the mud, marine prin- cipal food supply of the swamps to provide a breeding population when the rains re- turned. And the presence of the fierce-looking, but unaggressive, 'gator always means good fish- ing. Alligators devouf trash fish which, if left unmolested, would crowd out bass. New laws had been demanded by conservationists as the alli- gator population dwindled to one per cent of its original num- ber. Killing alligators has been il- legan in Florida since 1961, but the penalties were light and hunters disregarded them. The average fine of to ?100 could easily be covered by a night's kill. And arrests were few, since only 25 wardens patrolled more than acres of wilder- ness. Florida law now permits prison sentences up to five years aaid makes possession of hunting equipment in alligator habitats prima facie evidence of intent to poach. It also provides a reward to informers. HERE ARE RECENT WINNERS of a Sony Portable Radio, 13. Howard logon 1517 18lh SI. lelh- I'I. Tomene Hall Cardston 15. G. W. Dodd 2306 Avo. 5., leth. 16. Mrs. E.

Your Horoscope By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, JUNE 9 Your birthday today: This will later be called "the year of the unexpected." Aside from a few events (perhaps only a single all goes reasonably well. Alter- nate plans will have to be im- provised quickly when tte need comes; they will be wise rather than expedient. Today's natives are generally ardent, enthusiastic, enjoy mari- tal and family harmony. ARIES (March 21 April The unexpected is characteris- tic of today. Enjoy the bizarre aspects of the incidents wliile striving for as nearly normal a schedule as possible. TAURUS (April 20 May Be cautious with anything that has an edge or works on pow- er sources. Personal contacts arouse endless discussion, par- ticularly family affairs. GEMINI (May 21 June Exploiting a sudden advantage or hasty action in any direc- tion is unlikely to give the re- sults intended and is unfair to somebody you have not consid- ered fully. CANCER (June 21 July Events intrude into your tra- vels. Presence of mind is ex- tremely important in getting your life back on an even keel. There will be much to talk over later. LEO (July 23 Aug. If a project is unrealistic, the flaws will be apparent today. Your full comprehension of any transaction is critical. Check the fine print, seek an outside opinion. VIRGO (Aug. 23 Sept. Fresh information promises to change your whole scene abruptly for the better. Ignore the general tendency of every- body toward disagreement and tensions. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. Group action is the better course, as unplanned incidents disrupt normal plans. At best this can be a wry joke or a prank. Pause to let intuition give you the right lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 2.1 Nov. Your strong mood for indepen- dent action today may bring you impressive results, but be sure that others are kept in- formed. Be explicit. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Get started early, to make allowance for last minute tan- gles and some thoughtless words from people around you. Stay out of disagreements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Your private life fills up with pressing issues. Your work may have to be de-emphasized for the time being. Don't stir anybody's temper. Be willing to travel. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Whatever happens today includes much discussion, some by people who have no business in it. However, it will eventual- ly bring workable arrange- ments. PISCES (Feb. 19 March Errors in your work can pro- duce chaos if yen are not as- siduously wide awake to dou- ble clwck things as they pass. Be very easy in your demands on your loved ones. 11170, Ncwsday, Inc. New B.C. Leader For NDP Elected CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) Dave Baivctt Saturday was ac- claimed leader of the New Dem- ocratic Party of British Colum- bia in a unanimous vote of sup- port by more than delegates to the party's annual conven- tion. Nominated by Hank Tyson of Dewdney, who 10 years ago signed up Mr. Barrett in the old Co-operative Commonwealth Federation party, the 39-year- old MLA for the Vancouver sub- urb of Coquitlam was given a prolonged standing ovation. There were no other nomina- tions for the leadership. Mr. Barrett has been leader of the NDP in the B.C. legislature since September, acting in the place of former leader Tom Berger who lost his seat in last summer's provincial election. In his acceptance speech, Mr. Barrett said Premier W. A. C. Bennett's Social Credit govern- ment has been tired and unable to handle the province's prob- lems and called for a recommit- ment to traditional NDP and CCF policies. He said the existing provincial government is an "old Tory government" whose response to problems "is to give homilies." "When they throw down the of Christianity there is little this government can do to claim Christianity in tire past." He said there has always been a "Christian commitment to moral values in this party (the NDP) unparalleled by any other party and I am proud of it. Mr. Barrett said every gov- ernment in North America has been motivated toward greed whereas the NDP wants "a so- ciety of love, trust and under- standing." NO WESTERN PAPERS PRAGUE (Reuters) ern newspapers have disap- peared from hotel news stands in this Czechoslovak capital in recent weeks. One official rea- son given for the change is that the country can no longer afford to spend foreign currency on getting the publications in. Only Soviet, East European and some Western Communist news- papers are available. There has been no interruption in deliv- eries of Western newspapers to foreign businesses in Czechoslo- vakia.
