Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, June 17, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD -19 4Birth control lesser of two evils for minors' C'ALGARY (CP) Choosing the lesser of two evils was why Dr. Carolyn Pelletier of Guelph, Ont., said on the weekend that she has often prescribed birth control devices for minors. Dr. Pelietier, director of Planned Parenthood Guelph Birth Control Clinic, told the annual meeting of the Family Planning Federation of Canada that under the law she could have been charged with contributing to juvenile delinquency. "I don't like doing it, but I'm forced into it. It simply bothers me too much to let them go because I know if I don't help them, they'll come back in a few months pregnant and ask me for an abortion." Dr. Peiietier was one of several speakers on the first day of the three day conference. More than 150 delegates attended workshops on topics ranging from teenager problems to sexuality, the aged and the handicapped. Grass roots volunteer family planning clinics are booming across the country, delegates reported. Dr. Pelletier said the main reasons for this seem to be that young people want people to talk to in confidence. They rarely get this confidence from family doctors or parents. Dr. Marion Powell, director of the population unit of the- University of Toronto School of Hygiene, said she finds it difficult to advise her own children on sexualtiy. "We're too emotionally involved in the whole thing. I think teenagers need a surrogate parent to tell them about sexuality." Dr. Powell, author of a Toronto newspaper column on sexuality and young people, said she receives about 400 letters each week from teenagers who are "desperate for information." It is unfortunate that they don't feel comfortable enough to go to school nurses, counsellors or parents. She said often girls start looking for help only when they are pregnant. Dr. Powell said she also believes in sex among senior citizens. Society has wrongly held that old people are so fragile that "either we or they themselves don't give themselves a chance." Calgary youth receives nuclear heart pacemaker Eight-year-old Scamp. Love is Barb Hop! sharing a popsicle shares her treat after school with her doa CALGARY (CP) The thought of having his chest cut open every two or three years to renew a lease on life was too much for 11-year-old Bradley Johnson or anyone else. Bradley, son of Ole and Marge Johnson of Calgary, was born with a defect in his heart's electrical conductivity system which slows his unassisted pulse rate to between 35 and 40 beats per minute. This is where a heart pacemaker comes in to help restore the pulse rate to about 72 beats per minute. Conventional, battery- powered pacemakers need to be replaced every two or three years. That depressed young Bradley, his mother said. This week. Bradley became the youngest Canadian to receive a nuclear heart pacemaker. Powered by an aspirin-sized radioactive plutonium 238. it weighs six ounces and has an estimated life of 10 years. "Having the nuclear pacemaker put in is just like a load off his Mrs. Johnson said. "Hp won't have to worry about another operation for eight years at least." The nuclear pacemaker, developed in the late 1960s, was first installed in a French woman in 1970. Since then.

WEDpilWi'i i "I 1 PALLV Hospital board adopts new staff pay system CALGARY (CP) The Calgary General Hospital Board voted last week to adopt a new staff classification system that would eliminate all pay discrimination on the basis of sex. "The system we now use is obsolete and reflects the social situation of 1955." Hospital Administrator Edward Knight told the board. The first step of the reclassification will involve staff belonging to the Canadian Union of Public Employees and will be arrived at after consultation with the union. The hospital currently employs 1.750 people and has them divided into 300 job categories. It's just become too complicated to handle." Mr. Knight said. "Although the main reason for reclassifiaction is to eliminate discrimination it will also serve to eliminate a lot of unnecessary job divisions." The new system will be based on a point system so that anyone who fills the job's requirements "will be eligible for it." regardless of sex. However, he said there will still be some jobs that wii! have to be filled by men and some by women, such as male orderlies for male patients and vice versa.

Bradley was the 12th Canadian to have a nuclear pacemaker. The high cost of the nuclear device compared to for a battery pacemaker necessitates careful selection in its use. said Jack Ide. territory manager for Medtronic of Canada Ltd.. the onlv licensed manufacturer of pacemakers in Canada. "Because the taxpayer pays for the pacemakers, certain criteria for their application have to be met. The best candidate for a nuclear pacemaker is a younger patient facing a lifetime of heart pacing." Bradley's operation was performed at Holy Cross Hospital by Ur. George E. Miller.
