Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRiDGE HERALD Monday, Jung 18, 1973 Chemistry changes by pill cam WASHINGTON (An Gov- ernment biomcdical researcliers say that women use birth- control pills show ''small but statistically significant' differ- ences from non-users in most physiological functions. Although there appears to be litile or no apparent clinical sig- nificance in the findings, the scientists caution that no one knows the long-term effects of oral contraceptives. "They're something to be con- cerned said Dr. Philip Corfman, director of the Centre for Population Research in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Develop- ment. ''But they still remain our most effective he told a science writers semi- nar here. A five-year study involving California women, the most extensive undertaken to determine effects of the pill, showed detectable body chemistry differences between users and non-users in a wide range of physiological functions, Corfman said. The study at Kaiser-Per- manente Medical Centre at Walnut Creek, Calif., found that women on the pill slightly higher blood pressure, some- what higher pulse rates, lower blood cholesterol levels in users over 40 and higher in younger subjects, higher glucose toler- ance levels, shorter blood-clott- ing times and somewhat faster heart rates.

No children under 16 allowed And that is just the beginning of the list, Corfman said. "We never expected so many measurements would be af- fected, even in a small way." The preliminary results show no evidence that the pill aggra- vates existing depression or causes it, nor that it affects vi- sion or lung function. Since their approval in 1960. oral contraceptives have be- come widely used with an esti- mated six million to eight mil- lion U.S. women taking them. Corfman said that research to date indicates that use of the pill does not enhance the risk of breast cancer. Other research indicates that pill users face an eight-times greater risk of cerebral throm- bosis, or clotting, and ischemia, a deficiency of blood supply caused by constriction or ob- struction of a blood vessel; a slightly greater risk of stroke from hemorrhage, and a four- fold risk of thrombotic disease. f, ;fto'nf WeeWhimsy Honorary members Marilyn Johnson sent Me original an tor quote.

Details Announced at Bingo Corner 13th St. and 7th Ave. N., Basement Doors Open at 7 By JEAN SHARP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) H woman want to become successful in politics the first thing they must do is realize they have been kept out of politics deliberately, feminist Aline Gregory said Fri- day. i ne Toronto woman, who ran unsuccessfully as a feminist m- denendsnt candidate in the last federal election, said: "Women have a tremendous capacity for organizing that in the past has been used by male candidates and in the future should be used by women our- selves.'' T'Is. prefers the Ms. head of a workshop on deterrents to w omen obtaining political power, of a three-day con- ference sponsored by Women for Political Action, a Toronto group. About 200 women from across Canada attended the conference which ended Sun- day. In an interview before the workshop, Gregory said women should not be afraid to assume a male note of aggres- sion. "Women should organize HENRY T. (Karry) ABLE First Baptist Church Tuesday, June lf p.m. Everyone Welcome! strategies without fear, ac- knowledge they are seeking power and use every means and every method to get it.' She said her workshop will be a consciousness-raising session, with emphasis on the psy- chological rather than practical obstacles confronting women- socialization of women, role playing, personal attack and women's isolation from each other. "The second thing (women) must realize is that women are their will sup- port women. Some men will, too." Ms Gregory said. "They must realize they can" do it; they must have con- fidence." Other conference workshops will deal with practical details of writing briefs, election day procedures, parliamentary process, and public speaking. Ms. Gregory said she believes women who are elected to pub- lic office have an obligation to make a strong stand for the status of women. Most elected women have denied any obliga- tion, she said, and denied that women have special problems. IS OPTIMISTIC She said an increasing num- ber of women have been elected and added she believes the trend will continue. She said she also believes meetings such as the present conference can help demon- strate the strength women have. Ms. Gregory said she hopes the conference will produce rec- ommendations to be sent to governments and women's groups who subscribe to the socialization and deterrents af- fecting women in politics.

The council, through affiliated national and local organ- izations, represents about 000 women. It is 80 years old this year. Mrs. Armstrong said "in the old days, when council was formed, women, because of lit- eracy and the availability of funding and attitudes of public acceptance, were only able to deal in 'nice' ways with the problems of the day. "In the democracy we have today, that has advanced the idea of citizen participation, women have an opportunity they have never had before. The public will accept, as well as government and industry, that women are capable of presenting new ideas and being party to accepting new pol- icies." She said that instead of just trying to bring pressure to right what they see as wrongs, they can help preven problems. She said they are, and must be, concerned with policies dealing with pollution, popu- lation, use and conservation of resources and the change in Canada's economic base. There might be other changes during her three-year term that would help them get consensus quickly, she said. win The Homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist THE TEXTILE LABELLING ACT Soap, suds and elbow grease once drove the dirt out of Mon- day's washing. A bit of blue to make the whites whiter, sun- light and a hot iron (which did double drill as a door stopper) finished off that tiresome week- ly job. But try that combination with today's clothing and you'll wind up with a rag collection. Tex- tiles aren't what they used to be. Thirty years of textile tech- nology have exploded on the domestic clothing front and now we have scores of fibre combinations to weave with our wools, linens, silks and cot- tons, or which are textiles in their own right. Manufacturers in Canada's three-billion-dollar-a-year tex- tile business could probably re- cite hundreds of separate trade names for fibres currently on the North American market. This proliferation has created problems of identification and understanding for the shopper (probably retailers, And when these man-made fibres are combined with the tradi- tional natural fibres, the con- fusion is worse than ever. The Department of Consum- er and Corporate Affairs ad- ministers a law called the Tex- tile Labelling Act. Every man- ufacturer or dealer must use the required labels or his goods can't be sold: and since June 1 this year, those labels have to be permanently attached. Here's what the new label will tell you: It will list the fibres con- tained in the fabric, using the family name for each. (Any fibre making up five per cent of the article or over must be It will show the percent- age of each fibre by weight. It will identify the dealer (nanufacturer or ei- ther by name and address or by an identification number. These numbers are registered with the department. So, if you want the name and address, just write to The Consumer, Box 99, Ottawa, or any of the department's regional offices and give us the number. If the article is said to be imported, the label must name the country of origin. TEXTILE TRAFFIC COPS If the Textile Labelling Act makes the manufacturer an- swer the question "what is this material made then the care labelling system of colored symbols tells you how to take care of it. You'll find the symbols in the free booklet Care Labelling for available from our of- fice. Symbols were picked be- cause they know no language barriers. They'll help you, once you learn their meaning. We think that the man who makes a piece of clothing should know best how to clean it and care for it. He knows the fibres and finishing in the garment. What this program does is invite him to tell the buyer how to look after it. We've come a long way since we were able to tell a textile by its touch and know readily how to care for it. The care labelling program recognizes this problem. The symbols act as traffic cops. When they're green, they say, "Go ahead and do When they're red, they say And when they're amber, they say "Be Care labels aren't required by law. But if you find them help- ful and we think you will more and more manufacturers will use them. A lot are already using the labels. So look for them when you go shopping. The more you ask for such symbols on the clothing you buy, the more often you'll see them. If you don't ask for them, you won't get them. So ask! Care labels must be perman- ently attached to the garment and the instructional symbols should cover the whole article trim, buttons, thread and linings. Clothing stores will have sup- plies of leaflets explaining the system. And the printed pam- phlet called "Look at that which explains both care labelling and the Textile Labelling is available by writing to The Consumer, Box 99, Ottawa for copies. They're free in limited quantities.
