Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, November 7, 1974 There's still HOPE Project Hope's most visible goodwill messenger, the U.S.S. Hope, may now rust in a shipyard waiting to be scrapped but Hope's mission of mercy continues in the Caribbean and West Indies. At top left, a Hope mission arrives in a Jamaican village where unsanitary condi- tions have caused disease and death. Establishing clinics in the West Indies (top medical teams examine children for early signs of trouble. But one young pa- tient, (top, right) indicates she'd be just as happy to fore- go all this attention. A patient from the clinic's pre- mature ward (bottom, far left) prepares for chow. Prior to Hope's bringing incubators for premature births, only the hardiest survived infancy. But it's not all wards and operating rooms, it's classrooms, too. At left, a nurse teaches Jamaican medical students modern techniques before they take over the clinics. Dedication is written across the face of a Jamaican student nurse (right) as she inspects anesthesia equipment in the operating room. Cat sewage treatment cost Electric toilet under study Canada gains acceptance as full UNESCO member VERNON. B.C. (CP) An electric, self-contained toilet which eliminates flushing, fussing, lingering odors and all the piping of the normal household necessity is under serious consideration by the provincial government. Municipal Affairs Minister James Lorimer said the new waterless machine might con- tain the answer to exorbitant sewage treatment costs. The minister's comment came during the Union of British Columbia Municipal- ities convention here in Sep- tember. At the convention the prob- lem of treating sewage in iso- lated pockets of developable land was raised, reflecting a concern of many districts in the province. H. C. McQuillan of the Comox Strathcona regional district on Vancouver Island told the convention that fi- nancing of water and sewage systems for pockets of land surrounded by agriculture re- serves is almost prohibitive because growth in the areas is limited. The revolutionary new toilet may solve that problem. Colin Palmer of the Powell River Regional District told the convention his district's environment committee has been investigating a Swedish toilet sold for about that is used by many Swedish and Norwegian households and businesses. "It uses no water, no more power than a refrigerator and you empty the soil once a year and put it on your said Mr. Palmer. "The waste is reduced to dust by both the bacterial ac- tion and the use of an elec- trical coil. A small exhaust fan takes care of any odor through the pipe leading to the outside of the house." He said the beauty of the new unit is that homes can be built on rocks without sewage problems. Mr. Palmer noted that the federal government recently bought 200 of the Swedish toi- lets for experimental use in the Arctic. The compact unit is sold in B.C.. Alberta, and the Yukon by Hurnumat Enterprises of Delta, B.C. Andy Koechl of Humumat, who imports the machine, said his firm has received about 200 letters and just as many phone calls inquiring about the new toilet. He said most sales have been to Vancouver home- owners and one toilet had been installed in a ski cabin on Whistler Mountain near North Vancouver. Even the construction in- dustry is investing in the new concept of waste treatment. Stuart Developments of Port Moody is testing one of the new toilets as a replace- ment for the traditional Johnny-on-the-spot at a con- struction project in New Westminster. "Any handy man can install said Mr. Koechl. "An or- dinary toilet, with water and drainage installed inside the house runs between and a unit. "And a septic tank and drain field is another to Dan Illingby, who owns an electrical contracting firm, has one of the red-seated units installed in the cabana next to his North Vancouver swimm- ing pool. "You just plug it in and it works on a similar principle to a septic he said. "We installed for a garden party we had a couple of weeks ago because with 80 guests, there would have been a lineup all round the house for the bathroom."

Dr. Samuel Herlich is able to persuade 60 per cent of his male patients and 20 per cent of his female patients to stop smoking. Curious about outside fac- tors that affect rate of hair loss among individuals with an inherited tendency to baldness. Dr. Herlich, a Montreal-area general prac- titioner, compiled careful case histories of his patients. He found that 75 per cent of the young men of 21 and 22 who came to him complaining of hair loss were heavy smokers and usually had started smoking at age 14 or 15. Dr. Herlich also found an in- crease in the number of women suffering hair loss. "Hair loss in women is slower than for men. but among heavy smokers it is almost equal." He is convinced that among both men and women "if a hair root is destined to fall, nicotine will speed the process." In 15 years. Dr. Herlich esti- mates he has seen about 10.000 persons, including 500 women, worried about loss of hair. The doctor said factors such as stress and possibly nutri- tion may cause rapid hair loss but especially advises patients to stop smoking when the hair starts to fall. "Men are vain about their hair." he said. "When told cigarettes may be causing it to fall out more rapidly, many of them will stop smoking." Such advice results in ir.ore persons stopping smoking than when patients are warn- ed of possible lung cancer, emphysema or heart damage. He himself is a heavy- smoker. "But since I have not inherited baldness. I don't have to worry about falling hair." he said. "And don't re- mind me about Ihe other dangers. PARIS Canada has been virtually accepted, despite French reticence, as a full member of the European re- gional group of the Paris- based United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization A UNESCO spokesman con- firmed here Tuesday that Can- ada's application had obtained a large consensus in Monday's prolonged session of the 18th general conference when a French resolution to postpone voting on the regional issue was defeated. A total of 59 countries voted for Canada's entry, five against, and 11, including France and China, abstained. The United States similarly obtained enough support to join the European group. No specific North American group was formed in 1964 CHARGE DISMISSED SALT LAKE CITY (AP) A charge against the Boy Scouts of America was dis- missed Wednesday after promises from the scouts and the Mormon church that alleg- ed discrimination would not be practised in church- sponsored troops. The charge had been laid by two Utah troop members who contend- ed the troops reserved top scout leadership positions for members of the Mormon priesthood. when five regional groups were established embracing Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Arab states, Asia and Europe. For several years, Canada has been striving to enter the European group of UNESCO "as a logical development of its efforts to intensify its bilateral and multilateral relations with European State Secretary Hugh Faulkner told the conference here recently. Faulkner evoked "a com- mon background of socio- economic and cultural development" and expressed his regret that Canada was deprived "of the opportunity of contributing effectively and systematically to the activi- ties of the region to which it feels most linked." France's main argument against bringing in Canada was that it would inevitably pave the way for American membership and this, in French eyes, would transform the group into an "Atlantic" club. This objection was over- ruled by the Western Europeans, who welcome North America's presence as a counterweight to the Soviet Union. CAREERS MOBILE HOME WORKERS Britanny Homes Ltd..

The ecology lobby is up in arms over the pollution of the scenic bay on the southwest coast of Ireland. The Dublin press questions the terms un- der which Gulf, which has accepted responsibility for the spill, operates in the bay. But most local people line up behind the company. "We need said Vi- vian O'Callaghan, a member of the local county council. "They provide one-third of our menfolk with high-paid jobs." On Oct. 21, some tons of than gushed from a tanker unloading at Gulf's storage terminal. Gulf said a seaman inadvertently left a 16-inch valve open for half an hour. Since Gulf came here six years ago, 22 cases of oil spil- lage have been reported. Gulf was convicted in eight cases and paid a total of in fines. The stench of oil still hangs over the beautiful bay, a 20- mile-long inlet opening onto the Atlantic.
