And other medical professions also have not moved as far in com- munily health and education in preventive medicine as has the nursing profession. Miss Miner, director of. the public health nursing division of the Saskatchewan Health Department, said the medical professions must be warv of creating a society of hypo- chondriacs. "As move to more so- phisticated co-ordinated health programs, I believe we must do all we can to avoid promoting a society of she said.

"It I were to do it over again, I'd vote against DST." Mrs. Meszoly said another drawback is tliat "the af- ternoon seems to be so hot around suppcrtime. I don't like it." Mrs. Janet Wliarton says she has problems getting her six, four and two-year-old children tc> go to sleep, "hut the advant- ages out weigh the disadvant- ages." "I'm alt for it. The fact that the children con play out that much longer helps. It's good for them. And there's no great dif- ference in the time they get up." One couple with a Siamese cat prefers daylight time. The animal insists on being let out to play with the first ray of light. With the cat out, the cou- ple gets an extra hour of sleep.
