Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 18, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, May 18, 1973 Variety of foods hamper proper diet By .IRAN SHARP CP "WOMEN'S Editor TORONTO (CP) is harder to eat well nutritionally today than it was in the past because there are more foods available to eat, Dr. A. B. Mor- rison said here. "In the past, our food intake was largely composed of tradi- tional foods. Today food technologists can produce pala- table processed foods, such as purified proteins, carbohy- drates and fats that may be entirely devoid of other nutri- ents. "There is a trend away from thres normal meals a day and toward an increased use of food. Some of these trends could result in serious nutritional deficiencies." Dr. Morrison is assistant dep- uty minister, health protection branch, department of national health and welfare. He was speaking at a one-day session on nutrition recently sponsored bv the Grocery Products Manu- facturers of Canada. Dr. Morrison said there are not many cases of spectacular forms of malnutrition in Can- ada, but there is evidence of what he called clinical subnutri- tion. About fhe years ago, re- searchers found 400 cases of rickets in three hospitals in Montreal and Toronto. "The cost of hospitalization tor nutritionally-related causes in one hospital in Quebec was estimated at a third of a million dollars per year.'' LEGISLATION MAY COME Dr. Morrison said new legisla- tion may be necessary to make certain new foods and substitute foods are not nutritionally infe- rior to traditional foods. He predicted nutritional la- powered advertising campaign to teach nutrition is necessary. He suggested food companies half their budget on such a campaign, or contribute to a central fund to promote nutri- tion. He also suggested that foods that contain nothing but ca- lories should be declared dan- gerous. He said they should be labelled "This food does not contribute to a balanced diet."

Maria broke her back one day while skiing downhill. She then took up cross country skiing and she makes an hour-long ski-tour each morn- ing in season. ORGANIZED CHOIR Starting out in life as a dis- believer, Maria later studied to be a nun, leaving the con- vent to marry Baron von Trapp and care for his seven children. When he lost his money, she organized the family into a musical unit. In America, after Austria fell to the Nazis, they per- formed for 15 as the Trapp Family Singers and their popularity on fce concert stage is said to be still unsur- passed. After listening to Maria's spiritual reflections, one may be amazed at her confession of a weakness: weight worry ing. "I have 34 'sweet and that is my big problem. At Christmas I blew up like a noodle, and I have been on every kind of diet without suc- osss until now. But I have lost four inches in one week around my equator.

Officers of the Hospital Em- iloyees Union, Local 180 say Jie breakthrough has been triggered by recent arbitration wage adjustment awards keyed x) provincial human rights leg- slation calling for. equal pay for equal Union and government sour- ces said payrolls could in- crease by million if the reakthrough becomes general in hospitals across the prov- ince. Ray McCready, business manager of the hospital em- ployees union which represents employees, toured the province last fall in an unsuc- cessful bid to have hospitals mutually agree to adjustments. He said the union finally took advantage of an arbitration rul- ing in the current contract with the B.C. hospitals' association. The union was required by ar- bitrator D. R. Blair to prove there had been a material change in job content and they did so in representations on behalf of practical nurses in the Kimberley and District Hospitals. Mr. Blair upheld the union claim that the practical nurses were victims of discrimination based on sex and directed they be paid the same as male or- derlies. This increased their monthly wages by re- troaetice to Jan. 1. Mr. Blair also directed that housekeeping maids in Golden, Windermere and Creston hos- pitals receive adjustments amounting to a month from Jan. 1 "because of the many man-like characteristics of their jobs." The awards brought practical nurses to and maids to monthly at the maximum level. The maids' award was short of the top male cleaner rate of but Mr. Blair recom- mended the job classifications of housekeeping maid and cieaner be rep'.aoed with a new non-discriminatory cate- gory called building service wnrkers. At the end of April the union presented traditional pay rate proposals including "discrimi- nation anomalies" covering practical nurses in extended care units of West Kotenay area hospitals. "Once again the arbitrator upheld union claims that the practical nurse's wage rates were discrminatory and those in the unit should be paid at the same rate as their male Mr. McCready said. The practical nurses in the West Kootenay area got the same monthly increase but the housekeeping maids lost out when the union could not prove there had been suf- ficient "material change" in their jobs, he said. On May 10, Mr. .Blair award- ed the 140 practical nurses at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Vic- toria the monthly rate cf the male orderly, retroactive to the beginning of the year. In this award, selected house- keeping maids also got an ad- justment. Mr. McCready said the ar- bitration awards are "the forerunners of addition a 1 awards to be handed down cov- ering more than 35 hospitals." He described them as "the precedent upon which the union hopes to completely elimin- ate wage discrimination based on sex when master contract bargaining begins in Septem- ber. In his awards, Mr. Blair re- viewed the human rights act and quoted from it: "No employer shall dis- criminate between male and female employees by having a female employee at a rate of pay less than the rate of pay paid to a male employee em- ployed by him for the same work or substantially the same work done in the same estab- lishment." 7 calendar of L ocal napper. uiqi The Minus One Club will hold a dance Saturday from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the Polish Hall.

Mrs. Cunliffe says her hus- band is a gourmet cook and ad- mits with laughter that she has seen more of him in the last eight years than many couples see oi each other In a lifetime.

The Queen will return to Canada for the August Commonwealth prime ministers' conference in Ot- tawa. "Most of the details for the royal visit have tidied up said a source who emphasized that royal tours have become so frequent in re- cent years that preparations no longer cause any great flurry of activity or panic within the pal- ace. Still, the Queen's secretarial staff is on the hop preparing re- perls and summaries for the Queen who '-likes to know in advance as much as possible about the places she will visit, the people she will meet and events she will attend on the tour." Although it is unusual for the Queen to visit the same country twice in one year, a source said shs was "particularly anxious to be present at the time of the prime ministers' conference." Also on her schedule are two visits to Australia within a six- month period. She will go there in October to open the opera house in Sydney and return in the spring, accompanied by Prince Philip and Princess Anne, for a longer visit.
