Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THf IFTiiSRIDCE HERALD Thurjday, Moy 18, 1970 THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAQ Control Yoiir Heartburn By Your Eating Habits By WAYNE G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Written for Newsprflcr Enterprises Assn. Q T get a severe heart- burn every time I drink coffee or orange juice or take aspirin. What can I do to get rid of all that acid and what can I take in place of aspirin? A If you don't have peptic ulcer or gall bladder disease, you should be able to control your heartburn by avoiding the things that you have found ag- gravate it often greasy or highly spiced foods. Eat slowly. Chew your food thoroughly. Don't eat when you are under nervous strain. If you do have a bout of heartburn, take one of the many antacids that are available. Those with coating action usually give the best re- sults. In place of aspirin, you could take acetaminophen (Tempra, Although no prescrip- tion is needed, this dnig should not be taken regularly for more than 10 days. Q I had heartburn for 40 years and no doctor could help me. Then I found that if I drink black coffee, Sanka or tea with- out milk or cream every morn- ing, I don't have hearth urn. Perhaps this will help others. A One man's meat is an- other man's poison. In many persons with heartburn, cream will bring on an attack but skimmed milk can be taken freely and may even relieve it Q Is it harmful in any way to eat baking powder? A Baking powder contains baking soda, cream of tartar, starch and sodium aluminum sulfate or calcium phosphate, never heard of anyone eating straight must be an acquirec taste. Small amounts would not be harmful, but anything can be poisonous if taken in too large a quantity. Q What causes regiirgita- tion of stomach contents into the mouth? A This may be caused by eating too fast, swallowing air nervous tension or gall bladder disease. The food you retaste is not necessarily the cause of the trouble. Q _ What can be done for person who has pellagra? A Since this is a vitamin deficiency disease, the victiir should be given niacin until al signs of pellagra (skin rash, di arrhea, weakness and fatigabil ity) have disappeared. After that, he should learn to eat varied and well-balanced diet, University Grants Plan Criticized EDMONTON (CP) The University of Alberta is no long- er able to improve the quality of education it offers, graduat- ing students were told here. Dr. D. G. Tyndai, the univer- sity's vice-president in charge of finance and administration, said its financial situation makes it "clear that our situation has changed from one where we were permitted to improve the quality of education offered to students in Alberta." He was speaking at a con- vocation ceremony for students graduating from the faculties cf education, household econ- omics and library science. UNABLE TO PLAN "The present system by which provincial grants to the univer- sities is determined makes it impossible to plan effectively for the financial operations of the university since the univer- sity does not know what its. total grant from the govern- ment will be until three-quart- ers of its fiscal year has elap- sed." By that time, there is al- most nothing that can be done to modify total expenditures tor the year, he said. "Our problem stems from the fact that in the preceding year there was no increase in the per-student grant and that there has been no increase in student fees since 1968." "Thus our revenue per stu- dent has increased by three per cent a year from 1968 to 1970 prices and sal- aries have gone up much more than six per cent in each of the past two years. "To our knowledge, no other sector of education in this or any other province has been faced with a severe a reduc- tion fa its 'real revenue per student as have Hie universities of Alberta in 1970." ALTERNATIVE PLANS As alternatives to the lower- ing of university costs, Dr. Tyn- dall suggested restriction of en- rolment by raising admis s i o n standards but we all hope this can be avoided." "One could require the stu- dents to pay increased fees but this would make it even nrare difficult to achieve our goal of equality of educational opportunity for all our citizens." An alternative which he sale needs serious consideration is development of degree-granting colleges, which would place al- most exclusive emphasis on teaching and would offer little work at the post-graduate level. This alternative "in my opin- ion, merits more serious con- sideration than it has received in Parents Collect Damages For Thalidomide Babies ALSDORF (AP) The thal- Idomide trial, the longest in West German history, passed its second year Wednesday and the court announced that so far par- ents of children allegedly crippled by the tranquillizer drug have agreed to a system of damage payments.

Seven Robot Submarine Aids Fishermen REYKJAVIK, Iceland (AP) A robot submarine that will help fishermen find where shell- fish are living has been devel- oped by the Uni'ed States bu- reau of commercial fisheries, a conference here was told Wednesday.

Todays natives Fishing Allowed; Eating Out TORONTO (CP) Fish taken from the Winnipeg River and lakes in its drainage system from Kenora to the junction with the English River should not be eaten because of high mercury levels, the Ontario leg. islature was told today. Sports fishing will not, how- ever, be prohibited. Lands and Forests Minister Rene Brunelle said in a state- ment there is no danger1 from fish taken from Lake of the Woods above Kenora. The lower portion of the Eng- lish River almost to the Mani- toba border already is under the same type of prohibition, one of 10 lake-river systems to be af- fected by mercury. Mr. Brunelle said "samples in quantity" taken from the Winni- peg River have shown excessive levels of mercury and while they can be caught they should not be eaten. The province holds that fish containing more than .5 parts per million of mercury is dan- gerous for consumption. Mr. Brunelle, who said he is still awaiting a list of all the lakes affected, declined to give names of industries which might be responsible for the mercury pollution until further evidence is gathered. However, industries in the area have been contacted and controls are being implemented. Drug Search Stepped Up WASHINGTON (CP) The treasury department has an- nounced a further intensifica- tion of drug-search efforts at its ports of entry, including those from Canada, which it says could produce considerable de- lays for travellers. A customs bureau spokesman said today more detailed inspec- tion at entry ports now is under way and will increase until at least the end of summer. Canadian ports of entry are included, he said, because Can- ada is used in many cases to gain entry to the U.S. for drugs from other countries Customs commissioner Myles Ambrose says in a news release that domestic and foreign agents, airlines and shiplines have been asked to inform their travelling clients that they can expect border delays. A customs official said inspec- tions include vehicular traf- fic points on the border as well as international airports and shipping ports. tend to have refined tastes, some vestive and critical'it. titudes.
