Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wcdnlulay, March 14, 1973 bank out of business KITCHENER, Onl. (CP) A sperm bank which opened in Kitchener last November has just gone out of business be- cause of an overwhelming de- mand (or help from inferlile couples wanting children. Mrs. John Purvis, secretary of Cryogcn Laboratories Inc., said in an interview the bank y.'as intended mainly as a stor- age place for semen. Its foun- der, a Kitchener physician (who wants to remain expected most of the clients would be men wanting to store semen as a typo of insurance before going ahead with vasec- tomy. Some deposits were made, but 1 the lab was deluged with re-1 quests for artificial insemina- tion from couples as far away as Ottawa, Windsor, Onl., and Calgary. 1 The Kitchener bank was be- lieved to be only the second in! Canada. "The problem was the fertil-1 ity cases were approaching us j Mrs. Purvis said. The majority had experienced diffi- culty in finding physicians who were interested or familiar with the procedure of artificial in- scininatbr. and wanted Ihe lab to make all the arrangement. But I lie purpose of the bank in tliis type of case was simply to provide physicians with semen for the insemination.

When it opened, the bank was publicized through information etters lo physicians in the area. The idea was they would refer patients to Ihe lab. But newspaper reports about the bank tempted some couples o bypass their doctors. This was acceptable in cases where men only wanted to make de- )osits, Mrs. Purvis said, but it implicated the procedure of artificial insemination.

Wilh the wealher playing foolsies on us, the best ihing to do be the best, for ihe worst. Mark Campbell, 17, decided to try on the works, and just wait and see what Lethbridge could throw at him in the next five min- utes. Elderly aided by LIP grant KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) Elizabeth Hurst has devised a unique means of getting resi- dents of area old-peoples' homes Involved in their own entertain- ment activities. Liz, one of 10 young people using the financial assistance of a federal Local Initiatives Pro- gram (LIP) grant, has organ- ized the production of radio dramas by residents of some of tlie homes. Miss Hurst previously had done live productions with old folks under a similar LIP- funded project last fall, but found that it was often "very hard for them to remember lines." However, the presence here of Wired World, a community radio station currently using the facilities of CHYM-FM for its once-a-week broadcasts but scheduled to go into full-time transmission later this year with its own FM frequency, gave Miss ilurst the idea for doing radio plays. I While the LIP program, Pro-! ject Sage, covers 15 homes in the area Miss Hurst carries out her radio drama program in only three of them. "When I started out I thought that I could work in four or five, but the work involved was just to she said in an inter- view. "You see, I can't just go to the library and photostat a play. Many of these old people can't read the ordinary print so 1 have to type the plays out in big print, double space them and then photocopy it all." SOME IN SOs Most of the people she works with are in their late 60s, 70s or 80s, although one group that' recorded a mystery play at the Wired World studios caine from a home providing psychiatric care and some of them are younger. While she would like to "en- courage them to motivate them- selves and not rely on me, Iheir life-style isn't geared to it. "I'm finding I pretty well have to work on an individual basis with them in order for the program to be worthwhile at all." Mainly, she sees the program as "an excuse to get them talk- ing and associating with each other. "If they didn't have this, they would just sort of sit around all day and watch TV, or .just sit. It's really a very stagnant life they have in these homes." Her work has been a balanc of satisfactions and frustrations "The main satisfaction is tha I've got to know some of thes wople personally and made :ot of friends. I've leame things too, that if I hadn token the job I'd be completel unaware of. It's given me in sight into what can happe when you get older and it's ver scary." CTRESS, apparently, can be good news as well as bad. Worrying about little Nau- sea learning her part in the school play, the challenge of a new job, the hassle of plan- ning a family vacation all these things lend a dash of spice to life, according to the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. But anger, fear, frustration and worry, all bottled up in- side, can threaten our health. Steady strain can cause many including headaches and digestive dis- tress. And it's an all-too-com- mon error to think psychoso- matic illnesses are not real. Pain is pain yhether the cause is physical or emo- tional. Many times, just talking ver problems with a sympa- tietic friend can help. We ften relieve our own guilt about disagreeable thoughts and feelings when we difi- over other people have sim- lar ones. Parents, especially, can >ractise an important piece rf preventive medicine by lelping children keep In touch nth their own feelings and showing them how to express :heir emotions constructively. Problems have a way of shrinking when someone lakes the time to really listen. There are no easy answers to the problems arising from stress, but Metropolitan Life has a few suggestions to relieve the tensions of every- day living: (1) Balance work with play. An interesting hobby can be relaxing as well as constructive. (2) Loaf a little. Too much inactivity breeds boredom and can even cause stress, but a few minutes a day doing nothing may help us tackle a job with renewed en- thusiasm. (3) Gel enough sleep and rest. If we are frequently tired and out of sorts, the solution may be as simple as going to bed earlier. (4) Work off tension. Physi- cal exercise not only helps FRAME STYLES FROM AROUND-THE- WORLD OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. relieve anger, but makes it easier to face and handle Ir- ritating problems more calm- ly- (5) Talk out troubles with a sympathetic friend, the fam- ily doctor or a clergyman, and learn to accept what you cannot change.
