Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Herald- Family Family doctors urged to re-educate mothers in good-eating habits Inspection time for Navy League Part of Navy League Week in Canada was an inspection of nembers by Doreen Grey of Lethbridge outside of the league leadquarters. The week will end Sunday with a church parade to be ollowed by a parade to the cenotaph in Gait Gardens where the will be addressed by Mayor Andy Anderson. An open house will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the head- 10th Ave. and 17th St. S. Parents and boys and girls ages 11 to 18 are welcome to tour the facilities and ask questions of the officers and cadets regarding the work of the league. Study of French-Canadian families bogs down due to negative memories VICTORIA Family doctors have a good opportunity to reeducate families with bad eating habits and they should appeal to mothers to watch nutrition for the welfare of their Dr. Paul Harding of the department of obstetrics and University of Western said. Dr. guest speaker at a family physicians said it can take as long as three generations for good eating habits in a family to become established. He said in an interview it is wrong to assume that babies of low birth weight are the result of malnutrition. This simplistic correlation is appearing increasingly in magazines and the lay he low birth weight can be the result of numerous other Dr. Harding suggested expectant mothers should eat half of their day's food intake by lunch time because the greatest nutritional demands on the mother's body occur in the morning after the night-long fast. Another Dr. Sydney Segal of the University of urged doctors to become more critically involved with parents who have lost a baby through crib death. He also said the news media should play down these in which a baby dies suddenly almost always while asleep for no apparent reason. Dr. Segal said his studies show that parents who lost a baby in this manner suffered irreversible emotional especially guilt. This is he because sudden infant deaths are probably caused by concealed neurological problems in the baby and are nor nor an incautious remark by police or other non-medical persons could initiate a lasting guilt complex in the to the detriment of themselves and the rest of their he said. Dr. Segal said one of the worst things that can happen is for an item to appear in a newspaper with a headline such as found dead no foul play It is extremely important that the family physician be there to help through initial Dr. Segal said He said his department's investigations also turned up criticisms that doctors also had a sense of or wrongly tried to Spare the parents the agony of an autopsy Golden Mile MONTREAL Re- searcher Serge Monast in the last two years has corre- sponded wiih people and jrganizations in 64 countries to gather information about the French-Canadian family. He has done this without using his salary as a surveyor and sometimes liv- ing on unemployment insur- ance He has even gathered empty bottles to get money for postage. It started when Mr. was a philosophy at University of Quebec in Montreal in 1971 His professor supported him in a preliminary study after he became interested in the evolution of the family But he found on his work as he got more involved and left the university in to continue his research alone had never done sociology of the family. I didn't know where the documents or who were the By last summer when he sent a document on his work to date to four university pro- he received enthu- siastic replies. Sociologist Colette Carisse of the University of Montreal hired Mr Monast to work on a study she was doing for the social affairs though he lacked professional background. But despite this early moral he had difficulty in getting money even a response from the groups he corresponded with. Mr Monast sought many types of information on the demographic He wrote all the province's most of its junior religious school boards and universities in both Canada and the United States and provincial and BINGO SCANDINAVIAN HALL 22912th St. 'C' N.

Now a psychologist is study- ing a way to keep attention teach him to control his theta waves Theta waves are one type of THREE LANCERS AND BOTTLED IN BONO OT THE CANADIAN electrical energy discharged by the brain Researchers have found that the more alert a person the fewer theta waves show up on an electroen- cephalograph which measures the brain's electrical activity. The drowsier he the more theta waves appear Dr. Jackson Beatty of the University of California at Los Angeles theorized if you could train a subject to de- crease his theta he would maintain attention longer. He tested the theory successfully in an experiment which used biofeedback. The combining electronics with has been dernonshrated variously to aid people in con- trolling heart blood pres- brain waves and body temperatures Practical applications are a long way but Beatty speculates the method might help persons in a number of such as manufacturing long-distance truck drivers and anesthetists who must keep a close watch on patients' vital signs during long operations. In Beatty's subjects were trained in theta biofeedback. EEC wires were attached to the back of their heads A tone sounded when they produced theta waves. Some subjects learned to create less thus were more con- centrating on an object. To create more theta some re- one woman thought of a lazy afternoon. During the experiment .sub- jects sat in a dark room watching a lighted radar scope. Target blips appeared every few minutes over two hours. The subjects were measured by how long it took them to detect the ships. As Beatty those who lowered their theta rate were much more accurate. Their vigilance scarcely de- creased. Those who produced more theta spotted the targets later and aboard a ship might have meant failing to notice a dangerous federal government de- partments Responses to his requests were fair from the from Canada and poorer yet from he said. His theory is that Quebe- cers often try to forget the past since much of what they see in it is negative. This occurs to such an ex- tent that many university theses on the Quebec family have to depend on foreign documents since until now there has been no centre bringing together the neces- sary he said. Mr. Monast gathered or in- ventoried documents published from the time Que- bec was a colony. Since early 1973 he has been helped by Lise Parent and Pierre whom he met when all three worked for Prof. Cansse.
