Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD Saturday, March 9, 1974 Beauty spot at the auxiliary Patients receive glamor treatment at beauty salon run by volunteers at Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital. Study shows sweetners appear safe for humans F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL Every Saturday Night at 8 p.m. SCardsforLOO or Each Three 7 Number JACKPOT DOOR PRIZE Gold cards pay double money OTTAWA (CP) The artificial sweetener saccharin challenged as a possible cause of cancer appears safe for human consumption, the federal health protection branch has concluded following a two year study. It was an excellent, large scale study in which multiple doses of, saccharin were administered to a large number of laboratory animals, Dr. A. B. Morrison, chief of the branch, said in an interview. No evidence was found that the sweetner causes cancer, said, in describing the study as among the best done anywhere. CASH BINGO TOUGHT, SATURDAY O'CLOCK HUNGARIAN 010 TIMERS HALL TI Stfvfef ato 2-7 JACKPOTS Now lid (Located Nestle Mo. 1 Fireball) The study has been sent to the United States Academy of Sciences where it likely will have an impact on a scientific storm that has been brewing over the safety of artificial sweetners. It is in the hands of Paul Johnson of the academy's committee on non nutritive sweetners. The committee is doing an intensive study to evaluate saccharin. Another artificial sweetner, cyclamate, was partially banned in North America in 1969 after evidence showed it caused cancer in laboratory animals. But subsequent evidence indicated cyclamate might have been accused falsely and it was suggested saccharin was more of a health threat. CHALLENGED BAN The lack of solid scientific evidence that cyclamate was -dangerous to humans prompted a British Columbia canning company to challenge the federal ban and sue for unspecified damages. In January, however, the Federal Court of Canada upheld the ban.

Lib movement ups desertion TORONTO (CP) A McMaster University professor said the women's liberation movement is a cause of husbands deserting their wives and children. Dr. James Daley of Hamilton told a conference of the Federation of Women Teachers Associations of Ontario: "If you weaken the restraints1, the man says why shouldn't he take off? "I think it's increasing among men It (equal rights movement) tells him everyone should be liberated and so he liberates himself." Dr. Daley said the movement is also being accompanied by other changes because change begets change. "Rape' simply becomes an act of whole notion of horror evaporates." As for sex education in the schools, people are "trans- mitting the sexual revolution to the said. Dr. Daley "We're rapidly entering an age of increasing mindlessness.... Your schools are the site of a battle of mind versus mindlessness. "You are soldiers in a battle 'and are on one side or the other. You ought to think over this phenomenon of change. How cutting the moorings will weaken and create other Dr. Daley said. Sherrill Cheda of Seneca College here said sex stereotyping comes in many ways. "The ladies are always served fruit salads and men large roast-beef she said. Miss Cheda, chief librarian at the college, told about a study of 175 picture books that found 85 per cent of all the books featured only boys; the other 15 per cent were about animals. Herald Hairstyling at auxiliary gives patients a boost By CHRIS STEWART Herald Staff Writer Where can you enter feeling rather unkempt and down at the heels and emerge feeling and looking like a million, for free? At the Beauty Spot in the north wing of the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital, of course! There volunteer beauty operators not only wash and style patients' hair for the love of it but their contagious enthusiasm sends patients back to their rooms feeling spirited and wonderful, ready to tackle the world. Volunteer Irene Hacker, a professional hairdresser for 30 years and retired 18 years ago is the mainstay of this weekly venture. She is assisted by volunteers Doris Oliver, Margaret Gowlland and Phyliss Leong who donate each Tuesday afternoon to making patients look and feel better. It's one thing to volunteer now and again, say for a month or two, or even a year but to volunteer every week for 18 consecutive years, as Irene Hacker has done is something unusual. She began-in the old Gait hospital when she set patients' hair in bed but when the Auxiliary Hospital opened, with its attractive beauty parlor equipped with eight dryers, sinks and styling chairs, she arranged to use it one afternoon 'a week. She', washes and sets most patients' hair eveiy other week (those, who caifget down to the Beauty Spot on fdot, in wheelchairs or The hospital auxiliary provides the shampoo and Mrs( Hacker and her sister volunteers provide the labor, all for free. Men patronize the volunteers, too, usually for haircuts, although some like to have their hair washed. Mrs. Hacker remembers her sense of accomplishment as a professional hairdresser when she sent customers out feeling like the Queen of Sheba after she had coiffured their hair. She experiences the same sense of pride today when patients return to their wards feeling and looking beautiful. "A good coiffure has tremendous therapuetic she says. "Messy hair can make a patient feel poorly, lethargic and discouraged whereas clean, freshly groomed hair gives a person a lift." If the patient wants kiss curls, bangs, back combing or even conservative braids the volunteer hairdressers try to oblige. "After all pleasing the patient is just as important as doing their according to Mrs. Hacker. Michigan childreti of flu-related disease DETROIT (AP) "You can have a child one day, then within an eight hour period or like us in 64 hours you no longer have a child." These agonized words come from the mother of a six-year- old boy who died recently from a disease called Reye's Syndrome that is cropping up with disturbing frequency this year in Michigan. A sometimes fatal flu related illness afflicting children and teenagers, Reye's Syndrome has killed 14 Michigan children already this year, almost twice the number of deaths during all of 1973. "It is not my intent to scare said Mrs. Joel Bell of Mendon, Mich. "But because I have seen this disease which takes over so terribly fast and kills so terribly fast, I've got to tell you that I am one scared mother. Meeting planned The next meeting of the Whoop-Up Saddle Club will be held at p.m. Monday at Sue's Coffee Shop, 73613th St. N. Two club delegates to the Southern Alberta Equestrian Council, Bill DesBarres. president, and June Cameron will give a talk on the functions of the council. "Not just for my daughter, who is the only one I have now, but I'm scared for every child and every parent." Medical authorities say Reye's Syndrome is not contagious, but it is appearing at an unusual rate in Michigan. Mrs. Bell's son, who died last September, was one of eight children who succumbed to the disease in Michigan in 1973. But already this year, 44 cases have been reported. Hoping to help other parents protect their children, Mrs. Bell wrote a letter to the Associated Press urging parents to learn about the disease and what symptoms to look for so that "just maybe they could get their child to the hospital in time for help." Doctors say the ailment usually occurs while children are recovering from infectious diseases such as influenza, measles or chickenpox. although its cause is unknown. They say it usually strikes one child in hit with infectious diseases. Symptoms of the disease include convulsions and severe, prolonged vomiting. This usually is followed by delirium, stupor and sometimes a deep coma. The disease frequently attacks and destroys the brain, liver and other organs.
