Phone 327-0260 VICTORIA (CP) West Vancouver teacher Ingrid Blanchet was taken to hospital Tuesday night, putting an end to her 13-day hunger strike on the steps of the legislature. Protesting that she couldn't get a job because she was over-qualified. Mrs. Blanchet, 52. had reported being weak and suffering dizzy spells on the weekend. Health minister Dennis Cocke called Royal Jubilee Hospital pathologist Dr. K. R. Thornton, after legislature security guards reported she was hallucinating and hadn't left her sleeping bag since noon on Tuesday. Mrs. Blanchet. subsisting only on two small tins of orange juice daily and tea with honey for the last two weeks, had slept on the steps of the legislative buildings at night, with only slight protec- tion from the elements. Clay Perry, executive assis- tant to Mr. Cocke. and Dr. Thornton helped her into a sta- tion wagon and drove her to hospital about 9 p.m. Her protest was to dramatize her inability to get a job as a teacher, because school boards wouldn't pay the rate her qualifications re- quired. She was unsuccessful in getting a review of her case by the government. Mrs. Blanchet met education minister Eileen Dailly several times during her protest, but only informally in the legislative buildings, usually in the main-floor washroom. "The premier said 'hi" along the street one day." said Mrs. Blanchet in an interview last week "He's not concerned." She agreed that the protest might jeopardize any chances she may have had for getting a job. but said she had to stand up for her rights. "Teachers always tell me. don't rock the boat take your salary and don't rock the boat. Water better MAMARONECK, N Y. (AP i A glass of water may someday be more nutritious than milk, say scientists at Novo Enzyme Corp. They have discovered that, after treatment by a special enzyme, protein from some vegetables becomes soluable an almost any consumable liquid. Vegetable protein could therefore be added to lap water, making at an even richer protein source than milk If nobody rocked the boat, nothing would ever happen. "It might just put up a wall against me but surely it will make school boards sit up and know we applicants are human beings with feelings Maybe somebody else will get a job because of it." Officials at the legislature said Mrs. Blanchet had a teaching job in Prince Rupert before she began her hunger strike, and had received a telegram from the school board there telling her to return or face dismissal.

WeeWhimsy -The Herald Family City people seem unperturbed by reports of unsafe kettles Local department stores appear to be more concerned by the recent announcement about unsafe electric kettles than do their customers. Almost immediately after publication of reports that a number of major brand electric kettles were subject to lead particle emissions, local department stores took all brands reported unsafe off the counters. Two department stores cleared their counters of all electric kettles. But as one store of- ficial said, "The public seems to be taking this quite nonchalantly." Four department stores in the city report a small number of kettles being returned since the safety reports were first published about two weeks ago. The stores have received almost no complaints or questions regarding the safety of electric kettles that are still being sold. Don McDowell, small appliances manager at Woolco. said ali electric kettles at Woolco were taken off the counter immediately after the safety reports, regardless of whether. they were on the list or not. "We didn't think the list was comprehensive enough One type of ket- tle was reported unsafe and another of the same brand but different model number was reported safe. About the only real difference between the two were the model said Mr. McDowell. He said no electric kettles will be sold at Woolco until the matter is cleared up. Mr. McDowell said very few people have returned kettles but those, who have were ad- vised to hold on to the kettles until Woolco is authorized by the major companies as a return depot "We want to give the customers satisfaction and we expect to hear from the companies within a week or he said. Mr. McDowell said Woolco is accepting return of their own brand kettles, the Brentwood model, but not others. Batons has adopted a policy to accept return of all major brand electric kettles purchas- ed from their store. Ted Clark, assistant manager of the Lethbridge store, said all unused electric kettles purchased from Batons may be returned under the terms of the Eaton guarantee. "If a used kettle purchased from this store after Jan 1, 1969. is not included in the approved list and a customer is concerned as to the potential health hazards, we will accept the return of the kettle." Mr. Clark said. He said with the return of a used electric kettle there will be an allowance of 25 per cent off the purchase of a new approved kettle Mr. Clark said all brands of electric kettles were taken off the counters except one. the Viking stainless steel model number 89059. which is reported to be safe for use. Zellers store in Lethbridge has Brad- ford models 8100 and 8101 still on the counters Shirley Calder, store supervisor, said the two models, made by Toastess. are approved as safe. She said the kettles are made bv a Canadian company and as far back as 1963 the com- pany has not used any lead soldering in their kettles. "We had the McGraw- Edison models but they were taken off the counter immediately after the publication of lead particle reports." Mrs. Calder said She said only two kettles have been returned to very few customers have asked questions regarding lead content in electric kettles A spokesman for Simpsons-Sears in the British Columbia lower mainland area said Monday full refunds would be given on un- safe kettles purchased within the last year and partial refunds, on a pro-rated basis, on older kettles. But John Loewen, manager of Simpsons- Sears in Lethbridge. says the move by the B C stores was probably a local decision. "We haven't heard thing from our head office yet and until we have word we are ask- ing customers to hold on to the Mr. Loewen said.
