IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE BOSTON (AP) Women who use oral contraceptives are trace as likely to develop gall- bladder disease as those who do not, Boston researchers say. In a study on the effects of oral contraceptives, the re- searchers say "the association between oral contraceptive use and surgically proven gall- bladder disease was unexpect- ed. In view of its statistical sig- nificance, chance is an unlike- ly explanation.' The investigators compare 212 women, aged 20 to 44, who had surgically confirmed gallblad- der disease but were otherwise healthy, with 842 "control patients. Using established statistical techniques, the researchers esti- mate die annual attack rate ol gallbladder disease in women taking oral contraceptives to be 158 per compared with 79 per in women who do not use oral contraceptives. In a report appearing "this week in Lancet, the British medical journal, investigators of the Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program of Boston University Medical Centre suggest that increased gallbladder disease may have something to do with the hor- mone estrogen. PILL COMPONENT Estrogen is a component of most oral contraceptives. Re- searchers say almost all of the contraceptives used by the women surveyed were low-es- trogen types, the kinds most commonly prescribed by doc- tors. The report says other studies show that gallbladder disease is more common in women of childbearing age than in men. Before puberty, the report says, ;here is no male-female differ- ence in incidence of the disease. "It does not seem unreason- able, therefore, to propose that some hormone difference be- ;ween men and women may ac- count for differences in the in- cidence of gallbladder disease, and that oral contraceptives may potentiate the risk." The researchers say evidence n other studies suggests that estrogen induces changes in the composition of bile, and gall- stones might result. Bile is the liver-manufactured substance stored in the gallbladder to aid in digestion. The study says the frequency of gallbladder surgery is espe- cially high in women who have been on oral contraceptives for six to 12 months when com- pared with women who have been using these contraceptives for longer periods. Queen minus crown mm FLOORS SHAG REMNANTS DOOR MATS END ROLLS OF VINYL SHEET GOODS "NOW ON SALE" 1251 2nd Ave.S. FREE ESTIMATES PH. 327-0023 RES. 327-7133 TORONTO (CP) A few minutes after the motorcade carrying Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip passed Allenby public school here, Reggie Massey, 7, strained his body out on to Avenue Road to see if the Queen was coming. Reggie saw the lady in the pretty yellow hat and he shouted at her, but he was still waiting for the Queen. It's difficult for a boy to rec- ognize a queen if she's not wearing her crown. "She's got short gie explained, his brown eyes dancing with excitement. "She's going to have a long dress. She's going to have a crown on her head and she's going to wear some pretty shoes." Juan Carlos Maiguascha, 5, forecast that she was "going to have a crown with a veil." Maria Semenoquycz, 10, said she had never seen the Queen on a dol- lar." John Chou, 10. thought it would be better if the Queen could get to know people in- stead of just driving by. "All the people won't let you talk to her." Robert Deutschmann, standing with fellow Grade 5 pupils, said the Queen was "important" and should be made welcome. "We neeed someone to run everything." Principal E. N. Rutherford said the pupils wrote to Queen Elizabeth to invite her to the school, but the Queen replied that her itinerary was already filled. When il turned out that she was passing the school, he said, "many of the children thought the school was part of her visit." High-flying fashions Montreal-born Suzanne McKenna, 25, one oF the stewardesses in the Air Canada aircraft which flew Britain's Queen Elizabeth to Canada for her 12-day tour, wears an outfit from the controversial 51-piece wardrobe designed for Air Canada girls by Canadian couturier Leo Chevalier.

(CP) "My contribution was only a drop in the bucket of Thailand says Ann Marshall of Ancaster, Ont., a volunteer with the Canadian University Services Overseas A 1971 graduate of Queen's University in Kingston, Ont., Miss Marshall recently return- ed from two years of teaching English at ttoa secondary school level in Thailand. She also be- came the first full-time director of the Harry Durance Memor? ial Scholarship Fund. She is so interested in her work that she is returning to Thailand in June for another year. "I enjoy teaching English so much. My students were so re- sponsive, not only to the langu- age lesson but to the wider view of another culture. They even seem to like their foreign Miss Marshall said. Education has become one of the first priorities of the Thai government. "They are vitally interested in the education of their peo- ple. Education is compulsory and free until Grade 4. More than 50 per cent of the school age children are unable to con- tinue beyond the first four years bscause of lack of financial re- sources. This leads to a lack of teach- ers, a situation that the gov- ernment cannot correct as quickly as it would like be- cause of insufficient funds. The Harry Durance Memor- ial scholarship Fund is trying to bridge this gap. Harry Dur- ance was a CUSO volunteer who was accidentally electrocuted in Thailand in 1970. The purpose of the fund is to award scholar- ships to needy students. Educational costs in Thailand are relatively low, ranging from a year for an elementary student to a year for a uni- versity student. As director, Miss Marshall has Thai and CUSO working for her. The project involves home In- terviews with parents, often in rural areas, to determine how much of the education costs the parents can afford to pay and how much the fund must con- tribute. "This is where my knowledge of the Thai language was use- Mijss Marshall said. Vol- unteers receive eight weeks of intensive language instruction prior to service. Wrong-doers warned by policewoman VICTORIA (CP) Police- woman Karen Dunn started a new job recently and the results were so good she may continue indefinitely in the new assign- ment. She's the voice of the Victoria police traffic division, driving a loud-hailer car around the city and yelling at bad drvers to stop them violating traffic regu- lations. Previously, the practice was limited two weeks at the end of the year during the holiday sea- son. The idea of using a woman's voice was Chief J. F. Gregory's. Insp. Brooke Douglass, head of the traffic division, said downtown motorists who ran red lights or tried to park ille- gally were so surprised at hear- ing a woman admonish them that they immediately stopped violating the rules. He said the car will remain downtown for an indefinite pe- riod, with Miss Dunn and other more masculine voices aiming warnings at all destrians, cyclists and motor- ists. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes STERLING DISCOUNTS TO 50% (EXCEPT ON NURSES' CLINIC SHOES) ALL HANDBAGS REDUCED STERLING SHOES 320A 6th ST. S. auntac PHONE 327-3344 J GRANITE CITY, 111. (AP) Kids in this industrial city are learning geography by reading the major league baseball schedules in their local news- paper. Arithmetic lessons come in news stories about such things as labor contracts. Its all part of an educational experiment. For years educationists have considered using the newspa- pers as a regular classroom supplement. In some cases, teachers have even experimented with the newspaper as the main textbook for a single subject such as so- cial science. But at Emerson elementary school, Principal Al Wilson has thrown all caution to the wind with most textbooks. "We're blowing a lot of educa- tional theory all to Wilson said, eying first-graders with the paper spread before them. Since last September, all 350 pupils here, including, those in special education classes, have used the morning St. Louis Globe-Democrat as their pri- mary textbook for all subjects. RELEVANT TO STUDENTS "Learning comes alive in the pages of the said Wilson. "Students see the infor- mation being used and its rele- vant to them. It's not just dull stuff out of textbooks." At Emerson, pupils no longer labor over essay topics about their summer vacations. Edito- rial cartoons, pictures, Cutlines and advertisements now supply them with essay material. Science enters the classroom through reports on space feats, discoveries and natural disas- ters. Standard textbooks have not been completely eliminated, however. They are still used as reference and guides for what should be taught at the various grade levels. The school's 15 teachers base about 85 per cent of their instruction on the paper. has wrfcten sever- al articles and advised various newspapers across Vyi country of this educational theory, said there is no specific order for presenting material during the school year. "The teachers just cover it as it comes up in the paper." Some teachers greeted the in- novation with reservations last fall. Now, most said they feel more comfortable with the paper than with textbooks and believe the students are learn- ing faster. One key feature in the paper's use is that as a textbook it is the same for all, kindergarten pupils to sixth-graders. Wilson said this becomes especially im- portant in teaching children with learning disabilities be- cause it eliminates the tension that comes with the use of books marked by grade. A fourth-grader with a sec- flod-grade reading capability knows if he has a second-grade textbook because it is marked that way, he said, but the paper is not. "He enjoys it because -he's working with something he's fa- miliar with." LACK OF EVIDENCE GLASGOW (CP) It was ob- viously a case of mistaken identity when soccer fan James Burke was arrested by police for "bawling, shouting and screaming" at a match. All charges of causing a breach of the peace were hurriedly dropped when police discovered Burke, 18, was a deaf mute.
