It - THIIITHMIDOI MRAID - Thursday, MorcK 11, It71 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor IT'S not too soon to be thinking about summer camps for your children. One of the disadvantages to camping for children with special disabilities is that special attention cannot be given to needs and diets. The Kinsmen Club of Calgary, in recognizing the need for a special camp for diabetic children, created Kinsmen Camp Horizon, a 54-acre spread 20 miles west of Calgary in the Bragg Creek area. Assisting in this venture are Lethbridge's Green Acres Kiwanis Club, the Calgary Children's Hospital Aid Society and many other organizations and individuals. The Alberta Council for Crippled Children and Adults operate the camp. It's financed by the Canadian Diabetic Association, Calgary branch, the Kinsmen Club and the Alberta Council. Deadline for applications for the camp is May 31 and application forms may be obtained from the Canadian Diabetic Association, Calgary and District Branch, Camp Committee, P.O. Box 537, Calgary. The date of the camp itself is Aug. 2-13. The age limitation is 8-15 years. There are a very few brochure and request forms here at the office. The Diabetic Association is concerned that every child will have an opportunity to attend the camp and no child will be denied such an opportunity due to lack of funds. � * * * While the Canadian Home and School Association has asked for deletion of cigarette and tobacco advertising from Canadian television, further steps have been taken by the U.S. Council on Children, Media and Merchandising. The council represents consumer groups and professionals in health and nutrition fields. It is at present concerned over advertising of foodstuffs to children and asks that a code of advertising edibles to children be written. The Council would like to see reduction of advocacy of sugar in commercials, elimination of toys, gimmicks and bonuses to make a child choose one food over another; restriction in the number of ads per hour of children's programming; prohibition of ads for drugs, medicine or vitamin pills during certain hours; identification of ingredients and nutrients in advertised foods, and establishment of a research centre. Robert Choate, council chairman says a child watching television receives 10 advertisements an hour, on what to eat. Even a moderate watcher of children's television he says, receives over 5,000 messages per year primarily advising him to eat snacks, sweets and soda pops.

Per Further Information PHONI 327-91 �2 Comer 3rd Avenue and 3th Street South Upstairs, 222 Sth Street South Women in the U.S.S.R. play a more active role in the business and economy of their country than Canadian women, judging by comparative figures released by the U.S.S.R. Embassy in Ottawa. Of the 1,500 deputies of the Supreme Soviet, 428 or 42.8 per cent are women. This figure compares with one woman Member of Parliament out of 264 in Canada or .37 per cent. Of the U.S.S.R.'s 695,000 doctors, 75 per cent are women and they control 85 per cent of the country's health services. Women academicians head all pediatrical institutes of the Academy of Medical Science of the U.S.S.R. One third of the country's lawyers are women and nearly that number are judges. Seventy per cent of all teachers (which number about 2.5 million) are women. While women are battling with the royal commission's recommendations on the rights of women and their status in the country, day care and many of these same rights are already available in the U.S.S.R, Women can get a paid 112-day maternity leave which may be supplemented by an additional leave at personal expense. A woman's job is held open for her for seven months, and upon returning to work receives a free holiday at the expense of the firm or organization. These benefits apply equally to women adopting children. Abortion is legal if it is with- in the first three months of pregnancy. After that period, the decision depends upon the physical and mental well-being of tiie woman. Women are eligible for pension at 55 if they have worked for a period of 20 years. The information does not say whether or not there is compulsory retirement for women at an earlier age than for men as is the case in many companies in North America. If mothers have five or more children and have worked for 15 years, they are eligible for pension at 50. The economy of the U.S.S.R. is nearly equally divided between male and female, with 49 per cent of all wage and love is... . *. writing it on her bathroom mirror.

The name Cold Duck is a literal translation of a German pun. At the end of a party, guests would mix left-over wines together... calling the results "Kalte Ende" or "cold ends". Then the last word, "Ende" was jokingly changed to "Ente", meaning literally, "duck". But there's no joking about the taste of Andres Cold Duck wine. It's a tingling, unstuffy blend of Champagne and fine sparkling Burgundy. It maketh merry. It's new from Andres. You'll like It ANDRES COLD DUCK...a blend of Champagne and line sparkling Burgundy.
