(CP Wireplioto) Sex education important GENEVA (Renter) Edu- cating young people in sexual matters is as important as training for academic and technical subjects, a re- port by a World Health Or- ganization expert says. Unless education in all sex- iial matters isincr eased, writes Dr. Thorstein Guthe of Norway, venereal disease and other problems will continue to plague young people. "Unless it is realized that education for living is as im- portant as for academic and practical he ivritcs, "young people will continue to enter sdult life ignorant of tlic workings of their own emo- tions." He adds that, without this introduction, adolescents will continue to confuse sexual in- lercourse with love and mis- take promiscuity for freedom. "Tlrey continue lo be mystified by sex and by their own anxiety about fitting into a highly sex-oriented soci- ety." Education, using all avail- able media, should be the best weapon against Ihe rising Farmers market damaged by AHA By mi NEAVIiS EDMONTON (CP) The American Heart Association's campaign to convince the public that animal fals are harmful to health has been extremely dam- aging to farmers who market milk, pork, beef and eggs, says Ed Bristow of Die Alberta dairy branch. Mr. Bristow says [he contro- versy still rages after 20 years over claims that the best way to avoid a heart attack is to cut down on the intake of animal fat. And, on Ihe basis of many years of research "a great deal more needs to he known before a general manipulation of cholesterol levels in the popu- lation is wise, or even he said. There is no denying the incid- ence of coronary heart disease has increased in North America during the last 30 years, but Mr. Bristow says the factor of ani- mal fats has been over-empha- sized. FAT INTAKE DOWN "On a per-capita basis the consumption of saturated fats decreased by 12 per cent from 1951 to 1906 mainly due lo the switch to cheaper vegetable oils and the adverse publicity directed against animal fats." Now, North Americans have about the lowest animal fat in- take on a per-capita basis of any developed country, "yet they have the highest rate of heart Mr. Bristow says. A study of nearly men and women in the United States conducted over a 20-year period after boing commissioned by the American Heart Association "shattered" the association's long campaign on the harm of animal fats when it was re- leased in 1970, he said. The results showed no asso- ciation between diet intake and i Ihe serum cholesterol levels in the blood stream "nor did the data suggest any relationship between diet and the subsequent development of coronary heart disease." "These findings do not mean i that diet adjustments may not help minimize heart disease. but they do point out Ihe need j for more research into the prob- lem." He said the heart association did not accept the findings or "silence its campaign." Mr. Bristow said the Harold Brunn Institute for Cardiovascu- lar liesearch at Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco re- leased data on a 10-year study showing there was ''little doubt" milk, meat and ciga- rettes were to blame for Ihe "alarming" increase in heart disease. "The culprit is the in- creasing incidence and intensity of emotional spread of venereal disease t h r o u g h o u t the world, he writes, "but to illustrate our failure in the past a recent British study snowed that 60 per cent of girls and 45 per cent of boys under 20 years old appeared lo have had lit- tle or no sex education." The contradiction is ob- vious, he continues, "because this happens in a society which works overtime sex- ually, where a growing num- ber of serious people believe that a freer attitude to sex is healthier, where the woman's right lo sexual satisfaction is accepted, and where the con- traceptive pill has largely re- placed the male Condon? as a means of birth control." The most striking develop- ment is the increasing free- dom of sexual behavior, the article states. A study in Uppsala. Sweden, showed1 that among first-year college stu- dents one in 10 catch gonorrhea within a year. Venereal diseases are ellmg at greater speeds across frontiers, regardless of race, social class and eco- nomic grouping, the report says. In some cotmlires statis- tics show that up to 50 per cent of the cases are im- ported. NO UPPER AGE LIMIT Guthe says that while more young people under 20 are catching venereal disease than ever before, surprisingly there is no upper ags limit. lllustraucg this, be cites a study of cases of gonor- rhei carried ojt at the St. Louis Hospital in "The younger: piiient Is 12 years old. Ke hid been taken to a Paris by his father for initistioa. caught gonorrhea, and his father paid the hospital bill The oldest patient an man who hsd been taieti to a by hi? son. He too caught End his son paid for him." Discussing ways to meet the problem. Guthe says that de- spite the blessings of antibiot- ics, "we still need a new, highly effective, safe single- dose drug for imraimiscuhr use.'' Workers happy 4-day iveek EAIU.Y ST. JOHN'S For three centuries after its discovery. Prince Kdwnrd Is- land was known as St. Joim's. Your Zenith Dealers By .10H.V fllNNIFI' AT1 Analyst NEW YORK (AP) One of the potentially more significant experiments in American indus- try today is the four-day week, whether H be for the usual -30 hours or lor some lesser amount. Hundreds of companies, large and small, have at least tested the idea and most employers and workers, judging from re- ports available, are happy with it. Workers say it gives them more time with their families, an opportunity to take mini-va- cations, a greater chance to de- velop leisure skills. Some even say it enables them to take on a second job. Employers claim productivity sometimes increases because of a happier work force and be- cause of more efficient utiliza- tion of facilities, such as a re- duction in the number of cosily start-ups. Not all the experiments have turned out well, however. One company laments that "engi- neers tended before to work late and come in on Satur- days suddenly changed their pattern They found f t h c m s e 1 v e s reoriented and 1 thinking in terms of leasui'c time instead of their work." liiva Poor, a Cambridge, consultant who publishes Poor's Workweek Letter, has been one of Ihe chief research- ers and publicists of Ihe move- ment. She insists that she pro- vides information both pro and con on the subject. Nevertheless, judging from comments and actions, some observers appear to think that the notion may he overblown. At any rate, negative altitudes caused Mrs. Poor lo ask re- cently: "What the heck is going Her Ire was aroused, It seems, mainly by a high U.S. labor department official who cracked at a large business meeting that the only significant thing about the movement is (hat Mrs. Poor lias become Mrs. Rich. She also wonders why the labor department quotes her fig- ures for the number of compa- nies using the four-day week but omits growth-rates figures, which leaves some readers with the impression that the move- ment "is a minor happening."
