Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAlD Saturday, June 23, 1973 High heels damaging to young spine CLINTON, Ont. (CP) As the twig is bent, so goes the spinal column, and the twig who is wearing high heels and ele- vated shoes is definitely being bent, says Kenneth S. Wood. Dr. Wood is president of the Ontario Chiropractic Associa- tion. He says young men and women still in Uieir formative years are most likely to be the ones to do themselves some per- manent damage clumping around in the current shoes. "Many chiropractors are be- ginning to screen their patients for their footwear. We often find that when we eliminate the foot- wear, we eliminate the prob- lem." In a release, Dr. Wood says: "Elevating the heels of shoes produces an anterior tilt to the pelvis and an increase in the lumbar curve (lower This results in weakness and instability of the lumbar spine with resultant fatigue and dis- comfort." In other words, he explains, you lean forward. soon as you raise the heels, the body wants to lean forward as well. "Particularly if the spine is not normal to begin with, this height can trigger a problem that might be dormant.'' LINDA BIEM valedictorian Commencement exercises held ARE YOU READY FOR BUSINESS?

W. Taylor. Dr. Taylor commended the graduands on their eagerness to learn and commented on the joy of working with them and watching their progress. He said it was approximately the 60th class graduated from the Gait School of Nursing, and told the nurses to always carry the name of the school proudly witn them. His address centered on the question, how to find real hap- piness. Ann Gaul receives the original art for her Wee Whimsy Send yours to this papfr answer to that question to my mind and the minds of these girls on stage, is 'when I really help someone Dr. Taylor said. "Service is one of the basics of life a feeling of usefulness is the'sign of true happiness, and I hope you (the gradu- ands) will always keep this in mind." He related the stages of growing up, where the child first has the attitude of then changes through the years to develop an attitude of 'let me' and finally when ma- ture is characterized by a will- ingness and desire to serve others. "This hallmark of maturity is the opportunity being present- ed to these young people through the joy of he continued. Dr. Taylor stressed that the nurses should always keep in- dividuality in mind and he sug- gested to them that "there is no such thing as average, there are only individuals." He said it was vital to recog- nize this fact and to stress its importance when making de- cisions in the future. "The ability to make good decisions for yourself." said Dr. Taylor, "will one day enable you to make good decisions for others as well but it is vital to have solid standards to abide by." "The time may come when a new situation will require a de- cision and you as nurses must be able to weigh the influ- He concluded, saying that the students must never allow themselves to think time spent learning is wasted time; but to remember it is of importance at all times.

As every right thinking wife knows, this is pure cam- ouflage. Obviously the trip is a chance for the fellers to congregate some place where they are unknown, let down their back hair and tear up the pea patch. As far as my Willyum is concerned, another big ad- vantage of the managers' meeting is that it gives him a chance to be missed by the wife he leaves behind. For at least two or three days after his return I'm really extra- nice to him. In fact, since he returned from his latest trip, I've been so nice, I didn't even snarl when he forgot to take me out to dinner. I had to remind him extra-nicely for three days before we finally made it. Dining out is my special thing whether it's eating a hot dog on the hoof in the mall in between paydays, or something with a bit more class after the cheque comes in and before the money goes out. I love to tear myself away from the joys of family meal- time, with the telephone jang- ling in my left ear while Youngest Daughter slops a pork chop on rny new dress and Son Three drowns the carpet in gravy. I'm also extra-nice to my Willyum when he comes back because in his absence. I remember he is the only one in the family who has mastered the secret of turn- ing off the leaky tap in the bathroom. When I'm alone in bed at night, I Me there lis- tening to it drip, and soon I begin to notice other weird and spooky sounds and get very little sleep. When he is home, he also un-jams the foozlewoggle in the dishwasher, detaches the hose from the sprinkler, closes our tricky bathroom window and can open the front door without a key. Best of all, he gets the chil- dren off to bed at their ap- pointed hour, no mean feat with six different bedtimes and five thousand excuses for avoiding 'em. The first day he leaves town, I decide to enjoy my- self. I consider myself off the leash as far as the budget is concerned, so I hop down to the' store and load up on costly convenience foods and a goodly supply of paper plates which is a mistake. Paper plates make good frisbees and there are never any left come mealtime. Con- venience foods are carted off to the coulees behind my back, and all the youngsters in the neighborhood are in- vited down for a picnic. With Bill away, the battle of bedtime is won by default the children. I usually fall asleep in the middle of the argument, so they quietly tiptoe off to watch the late, late movie. This means, naturally, that chores go by the board. The children sleep until the tele- phone wakes them up and friends lure them out swim- ming or bikeriding. With chores to do when I get home from work, it's easy to talk myself into send- ing out for fried chicken or Chinese food. Then, to make me feel bet- ter about being left behind While my husband is having a wild, wild time, knee-deep in profit-and-loss with his boss, I go out and buy myself a few little odds and ends. Nothing much, mind you a new dress or two, maybe a pantsuit, some shoes, a handbag and a few little incidentals. For some reason which en- tirely escapes me, in spite of the fact that the company pays my Willyum's expenses, these trips are sheer murder on our bank account. It's reaching the point where it is becoming increas- ingly difficult to celebrate his return in decent style, (like a decent Once I pay all those titchy little bills I run up in his ab- sence, about all we have left to spend is a quiet evening at home with a good book.
