Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 t Hi." LETHBR1DGE HERALD Monday, March 25, 1974 -The Herald Family Scope to aid fetus study NEW HAVEN (AP) A fine-pointed scope now in the experimental stage promises to help physicians see development problems of a fetus while it grows inside the mother. When the device is available for routine use, it will be used to detect physical abnormalities or blood irregularities posing birth problems, say two physicians who pioneered the scope procedure. Later it might aid in attempts to "repair" improper development of the fetus, they said. Scopes have been used for years to look at fetuses inside uteruses. The experimentation at Yale University Medical however, is believed to be the first that does not require an incision and general anesthesia, says Dr. John Hobbins. The needle like device, 2.2 millimetres (about one-tenth of an inch in diameter, is inserted through the abdominal wall and into the amniotic sac, which cushions the fetus inside the uterus. Earlier scopes were about 'A-inch wide and required minor surgery. Looking through an eyepiece attached to the scope, the physician is able to see the fetus magnified about 25 times and lighted by the scope itself, Hobbins said. Hobbins and a colleague, Dr. Maurice Mahoney, also have developed a way to Call Judy Molnar for an EXPERT COLD WAVE LAKEVIEW BEAUTY SALON 2638 S. Parkside Drive Phone 327-4843 insert a hollow needle alongside the scope and direct it to a blood vessel in the placenta to obtain a sample of blood circulating to the fetus. The sample shows whether the Rh factor is absent from the blood, requiring a transfusion for the fetus before or at birth, Hobbins said. The blood test also shows whether child will be born with debilitating diseases. Experimentation will continue until all safety ques- tions are answered and the scope can be used for general diagnosis, Hobbins said. Expense funding denied EDMONTON (CP) Native women working to solve Indian social problems are encountering a lack of assistance from male dominated band councils. Southern Alberta delegates attending the seventh annual conference of the Voice of Alberta Native Women Society here were refused travel and expense funding by their bands. "It's a clear case of discrimination against said one delegate from the Blood Reservation whose band had refused to fund her trip. The Non Treaty Metis Association of Alberta came to the rescue of up to 170 of the 250 delegates by covering the cost of many treaty women.

Gone are the long straight locks that looked so right with Deserting husbands default OTTAWA Seventy five per cent of all family maintenance orders made by Canadian 'family courts against deserting husbands' .are defaulted costing tax- payers million annually, Dan McKenzie peg South Centre) said in the Commons recently. He suggested Health and Welfare Minister Marc Lalonde consider, adopting through legislation the recommendation of the Law Reform Commission which would give family courts an investigative and enforce- ment apparatus to track down elusive fathers. This would as- sure compliance with any maintenance orders issued. Outside the House Mr. McKenzie said it has cost the Manitoba treasury last year for maintenance costs for families where the fathers have disappeared and are not paying the maintenance of the wives or children. Out of that only was collected through the courts. Mr. Lalonde said there was such a recommendation for the Law Reform Commission. However as stated in the report it is a matter mainly of provincial jurisdiction which will be discussed' with the provinces, when the federal and provincial ministers have an opportunity to meet and discuss the question. Man, 84, shuns elevator REGINA (CP) At 84, Douglas Hill shuns the elevator "half the time" and climbs the stairs to his seventh floor office.

Jackpot S2M to S3 mimbara the casual clothes of the last few The couture houses, which just finished showing their spring collections have suddenly discovered Garbo, Dietrich the past. Anything is fine, as long as it isn't.contemporary. Ostrich boas, silk carnations on lapels and teagowns are the new Parisian ideas. The previous trend to classic fashion bored women to the point where they started buying old dresses. Someone who loves clothes would rather wear rags than a beige gabardine item. Unfortunately, most old clothes are full of holes. So now, thanks to Haute Couture, you can wear a brand new kind of dress: the new old clothes. FLOWERS USED The most important look is the mid-calf afternoon dress or teagown, which modern women will probably wear out to dinner. Shirtdresses with short puffed sleeves and bows flopping in the low necklines are in crepe georgette, silk and chiffon printed in flowers, dots or cherries. Also from the 1920s and early 1940s is the severe man tailored suit in grey flannel, pin stripes or glen plaid; The skirt may be pleated or straight and this season stays primly two inches below the knee. Back in the 1920, Paris went wild about the orient. Once again, there are caftans, a few togas for the classicists, and kimonos ad infinitum. Yves Saint Laurent even shows suede kimonos with pants, while Givenchy's prettiest shirt is a striped kimono look with elbow batwing sleeves. The homemaker Honey has been a favorite1 sweet of mankind since prehistoric times the ancient Greeks called it the nectar of the gods. It is- nature's own, convenience food! It provides quick food energy because the sugars are in an easily digestible form. Honey is highly prized for its special flavor alone with bread or with other foods. It may be purchased liquid or creamed (sometimes called spun or It is also available at certai'n times during the year in the comb. Various flavors are available. As a rule, the lighter the honey, the milder the flavor. Clover honey is white and mild, while buckwheat honey is darker and stronger. Honey may be a blend of several flavors. Read the label carefully .before purchasing. Weight watchers might be interested in the fact that honey contains fewer calories by weight than most other natural, sweeteners making it ideal as an ice cream topping for spreading on fresh fruit or pancakes or any dish requiring sweetening. Honey is valuable as a food. In addition to its sugars, honey contains as its minor components a number of minerals, several members of the B vitamins complex, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) dextrins, plant pigments, amino acids, other organic acids, traces of protein, esters and other aromatic compounds and several enzymes. WAYS WITH HONEY: 1. Use honey in place of other sweeteners in your favorite recipes. When a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar .or syrup use 1 cup honey and reduce the liquid by Vt cup. Then, reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees, to prevent overbrowning. 2. Honey is easy to measure if you first warm the cup or spoon by holding it under the hot water tap. 3. Honey improves many foods; it enhances the. flavor of pork and poultry, keeps baked goods fresh and moist, and sweetens fruit without masking its fresh flavor. 4. Add to a cake mix for better texture and flavor: One tablespoon of honey will enhance your favorite cake mix. The cake will stay fresher longer too. 5. Freeze fruit in a honey syrup. Prepare a light syrup by bringing 4 cups of water to a boil, remove from heat and stir in IVz cups of honey. For a medium syrup stir in 2 cups of honey. Fruits frozen in a honey syrup will not darken or discolor. No need to use Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, you can prepare honey syrup in quantity and store in refrigerator for use. 6. Store honey in a warm dry place in the kitchen. The optimum granulation temperature is 57 degrees F., so to prevent granulation keep the temperature well above or below 57 degrees. If you wish you can freeze honey; freezing keeps it liquid. 7. To reliquify honey, place the container in warm (not hot) water; over heating' injures delicate flavor and color. 8. Honey butter spread is made by combining, equal amounts of honey and butter. Store honey butter -in, the refrigerator ready for toast or hot rolls. BINGO Won., March 25 Jackpot in 53 Nos.
