Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Five Minutes For A Lifetime liii BETTY CANARY Not long ago I wrote a column while sitting in a hospital bed and I said, "I'm just in here for tests." Yes, I've turned into the sort of person who says, "Let me tell you about my only 1 say, "Let me tell you about my tests." The original test was a Pap test. Of course, you've heard of it. Every woman over 25 is constantly being urged to have an annual Pap test. It's a simple test done in your doctor's office. It takes about five minutes and there is absolutely no pain or discomfort. The cost is minimal perhaps less than you'd spend on two pairs of nylons. Tlie purpose of the Pap test is to detect abnormal or malignant cells and this it does with complete accuracy. My test showed abnormal cells. Two days later I was hospitalized for more thorough tests. The last one indicated precancerous tissue. The next day 1 had surgery and my doc- tor won another victory over a common and vicious killer of women. He cannot tell me when the cells would have changed from precancerous to malignant. After all, he's eqiu'pped with1 skill and scalpel, not a crystal ball. He did tell me with sadness that each year he sees women endure needless agony because they neglected to spend five painless minutes in Ms examining room. While sitting there I missed seeing my eldest son and his girl friend go off to their senior prom. But I couldn't be un- happy about that because I know I'll be here to see him sitting beside a Christmas tree next year. During my hospital stay another son won a gold medal because he's getting to be quite a good cellist. I missed seeing him in competition. Two of my children sang with their school chorus and for the first time they didn't have a mother in the audience. I hated missing the think how I feel knowing I'll be in the front row years from now! While I was in bed my youngest daughter chased her kitten under a bush and came down with a monumental case of poison ivy. I was sorry I couldn't be home to give Eabs her medicine. But what joy there is in knowing I'll be around in case she needs me to nurse her through an illness in 1972. Truthfully, finding words to describe how one feels after having participated in a miracle is impossible. I can suggest you follow the advice my surgeon asked me to give every woman I can reach. Go have a Pap test. You may find you're giving your husband children a most marvelous wife and mother. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

Big Brothel or somebody saw it, too. Television's David Frost, very charming, very British ant very well decked out in a six button Hardy Amies suit, sa there discussing motherhocx with Libcrace. Don't laugh. Lib erace discusses mother hooc very well. Anyway, David Frost sal there, listening and grinning and leaning forward the way he does. Then he placed his clip- board on his lap and crossec his legs. One of the two women In the second row gasped and covered her eyes. "Will you look at she hissed, peeking between her fingers.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Harriet married me for the usual reason., .One day she caught me smiling and laughing, and decided to do something about it." GRAND OPENING of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre 102 5th St. S. Sunday Juno 21, p.m, EXHIBIT OF INDIAN ARTS AND CRAFTS INDIAN ENTERTAINERS NO CHARGE ALL ARE WELCOME gauche In the United States these days. Over-lhe-calf socks hove be- come something of a measure of good dress like haying your tie go with your suit. "Not wearing long socks Is like not letting your hair says a young stockbroker. "But then everybody lets Ills hair grow. I guess it's more like bad breath." Nobody had to leave a pair of Interwoven OTCs (over- the-calf) on David Frost's desk. No, indeed. "David doesn't wear short socks any says a pro- gram official. "He wears OTCs." Big Brotlier or somebody at Westinghouse Broadcasting ap- parently does not like anklets on men, either. It's pretty ironic, really. In an age in which men and women parade naked on Broadway stages, businessmen receive criticism for showing a little leg. In order to accept the ovcr- Ihe-calf sock theory it seems is necessary to accept the fact that most people find the male leg somewhat unsightly. Once this is accomplished, however, it is easy to see tlie point. The nice Uu'ng about over- the-calf socks, of course, is that they stay up. (Apparently noth- ing bogs down a man's morale like saggy socks.) Tlie second nice thing about OTCs, it follows, is that they hide a man's calf when he de- cides to assume that traditional cross-legged manly posture in mixed comp pany, for tin ipany or any com- .liat matter. In New York, a city tn which Traditional Role For Nurses much emphasis Is placed upon a man's appearance, the hints are sometimes subtle but more times blunt. The president of a large firm, for example, has becomo slightly paranoid about hairy legs. "Perhaps I'm getting he wrote in a staff memo, "but I'm getting more conscious of men's legs between the tops of these silly tittle ankle socks and the high rise of trousers when seated very few com- panies have more people with good-looking legs than this com- pany, in my opinion, but they arc all on the girls (short socks) are sloppy and un- businesslike and shaving By MARGARET WHITMAN FREDERICTON (CP) -Can- ada's nurses must "raise their leads from their traditional de- lendent Rosemary Coombs, clinical nurse special- st at the Ottawa Civic Hospital, aid here. Mrs. Coombs told nurses a1- ending the general meeting of the Canadian Nurses Associa- tion they should seek the knowl- edge and clinical expertise nec- essary to establish themselves as "interdependent partners" on the medical team. Health professionals must work in "peer relationships." Nurses must assume some medical function if they are to "keep abreast of medical ad- vances and their effects on pa- tient Mrs. Coombs said. Dairy Princess To Be Chosen A t Klondike Days Wanted, one new Alberta Dairy Princess. Tlie province's dairy industry is again seeking Dairy Princess candidates, one of whom will succeed Miss Marilyn Gray, of South Edmonton, the 1969 win- ner. Edmonton's Klondike Days Exposition, July 23 to Aug. 1 will be the setting for the com- petition and crowning. Winner of the contest, who must be unmarried and between tlie ages of 17 and 25, will serve for a year as goodwill ambas- iador for the industry. After a busy year in this province she will enter the 1971 national Dairy Princess finals at the Canadian National Exhi- bition in Toronto. All expenses will be paid by ihe Alberta Dairymen's Associ- ation. Contest entry forms are avail- able from A. A. Hughes, secre- :ary, Alberta Dairy Princess Committee, Alberta Depart- ment of Agriculture, Edmonton. Dr. F. B. Fallis of (lie depart- ment of family and community medicine at tlie University of Toronto said the local health team is one of the "last best hopes of maintaining any sort of quality in community life." Dr. Fallis said the "serious- ness and urgency" of problems common to nurses and physi- cians demand rapid growth of new forms of grouping and co- operation in health. An expanded role for tlie nurse, he said, is "absolutely essential." 1ETTING BAD DEAL Monica Green of Victoria, director of public health nursing [or the British Columbia depart- ment of health services and hos- )ital insurance, said govern- ment is short-changing Can- ada's public health nurses and agencies. She said 95 per cent of Can- ada's health care budget goes to reatment, while only five per cent is spent on prevention. Myrna Sherrard of Moncton, ST.B., nurse clinician at the iloncton Hospi'al, urged nurses o eliminate "routine and ritu- alistic" practices in the plan- ning of patient care. Patient-care programs should not be "mass she said, but should be based on a 'continual assessment of the latient's needs." your legs won't help much ei- ther. Even those of you who ain't so hairy tend to have aw- fully white legs, often with goose bumps." Naturally, most major firm personnel just do not or will not come right out and tell a man how to wear his socks, any more than they will come right out and tell him how to wear his underwear. But the pressure to wear the over-the- calf socks, tbey say, is as indi- rect as it is real. Men who find garters on their desks in the morning usually take the hint. Conservative Defeats Jenny Lee LONDON (Reuters) Aits Minister Jenny Lee, widow of Aneurin Bevan, left-wing Labor firebrand of a previous genera- tion, was defeated by a Con- servative at Cannock in North England in election returns an- nounced Thursday. In one of the most sensational general election results, Conservatives overturned the the majority Miss Lee gained in 1966. Another Labor minister, David Ennals, minister of state for health and social security, lost his seat at Dover to Con- servative Peter Rees, a lawyer.
