Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 45 THE ICTHBRIDGf HERALD Saturday, November 14, 1970 DOWNTOWN Pre DURING THE DOWNTOWN Drastic change in welfare system needed reports poverty committee THAT'S JSMMY STSWART? It took o long time 75 movies in 35 years for Jimmy Stewart fo wear a must ache of his own on the screen, but the lanky, stijj boyish actor does it in "Fools' appearing, above, almost like a suave Waiter Pldgean, The 62-year-old star wanted to wear the full beard he'd grown on location, but1 the di- rector nixed it. Plump people pare it off 400 individuals lose pounds BOSTCH (AP) The Boston Police Diet is five years old and the originator of the protein and little-grey-pill regimen says he now is sure it is a key to help a lot of plump people. "We have had a little over 400 says Dr. Samuel S. Herman, "and they have lost a total of pounds. "But more important is the fact that in this group there has not been one heart attack or coronary." One major part of Herman's diet arises from his belief that "there is a definite hereditary pattern in some people in which diet alone is not the answer." That's why, he says, the Little grey pill is needed. Bat the food villain in Ber- man's eyes Is the typical Ameri- can's love of guzzling and gob- bling carbohydrates. "The he says, "is beer, pie, cake, beer, ice cream, iam, beer, potatoes, pudding, booze and beer." There's another difference from other diet must continue this one indefi- nitely, and be supervised by doctor. NO DOUGH ALLOWED I don't approve of do-it-your- self he says. "This is too serious a problem to be han- dled by an amateur." The little grey pill is a small amount of a prescription drug commonly used in larger amounts to treat people with sluggish metabolisms.

The Swedish-born doctor begins each pstice class with a two-hour lecture. He also checks the officers for weight and blood pressure and any illness or medical treatment require- ments. In the first two weeks an offi- cer can lose as much as 15 pounds, but further progress is slower as he nears sn ideal weight. The diet bans dough products of any kind including bread, all the pastas or rice, any batter- fried food. Findseaman's body iii taxi VICTORIA (CP) City po- lice said Thursday that Gerald Mulholland, 37, whose body was 'ound in a taxi Tuesday night, apparently died of a small stab wound in the back of the head. A police dog was being used in a seaxch of the area for a murder weapon, believed to be a stiletto type knife or screw- driver. A seaman from Cans d i a n Forces Base Esquimalt, Mulhol- land drove taxi part-time. What Dr. Herman wants the patrolmen to cat is meat, fowl or fish of all kinds, eggs and cottage cheese. Vegetables are limited to the raw variety most people use in salads. THY DEY WINE Fruits allowed include grape- fruit, tomato juice, rhubarb and fresh cranberries. If you need a drink, he tells his classes, try a dry wine. If il has to be a highball be sure it's with water or a diet mix. And Herman insists that his dieters get a good hot breakfast, and drink plenty of water, cof- fee or tea. "Most of these men are in the critical age 40s and he says. "You can't stop normal aging, but if you accept the idea of prematere aging you can retard it." The slim, 63-year-old doctor, whose hobby is competition ear racing, pays for the police diet j pills himself and donates his time. He began with the man department after a survey indicated many were over- weight. As for exercise, the doctor says: "I wouldn't run for any- one. I walk. I enjoy it. The only thing that's of any value is that which you can continue indefi- nitely." TORONTO (CP) Last year, Senator Herbert Sparrow changed from a neatly-pressed business suit into baggy pants and shuffled aimlessly through Vancouver's skid road district for a look at life on the other side of the tracks. Senator Sparrow, a farmer- businessman from Saskatche- wan with a chain of takeout res- taurants, is a member of the Senate poverty committee. He says the experience "was an eye opener." Senator Chesley Carter of K'owfoundland and Muriel Fer- gusson of New Brunswick are also members of the poverty committee. The three ccme from widely differing back- grounds but they hold a com- mon welfare system must be changed, drastically. They talked of their experi- ences while serving on the com- mittee in interviews published today by The Globe and Mail. The Saskatchewan senator started out with 55 cents in his pocket. Along the way te bought a bottle of bay shaving lotion with volatile alco hoh'c content that is a favorite- of the West Coast city's down- and-outers. DIDN'T LIKE TASTE He said in an interview he didn't like the taste, but drank some anyway. It cost him 5C cents. With the remaining nickel, Senator Sparrow bought two cigarettes, and sat smoking and talking with some of the people who know all about pov- erty. "They were withdrawn. They feel unwanted, rejected. The biggest single problem is alco- holism, but some can be sal- vaged. I found the experience a real eye-opener." Despite the deep feeling of de- spair the experience left him with, Senator Sparrow said the worst conditions he saw any- where were in two jails Prince Edward Island. Conditions were so bad tha he described the jails as indication of a sick, sick soci- ety.'1 The 40-year-old senator from' 'forth Battleford, Sask., said the ;est hurdle in beating pov- erty is the attitude towards tne problem held by most Canadi- ans. If hard facts appeal to Cana- dians, the people must be told ,hat it is cheaper in the long run .0 pay money to get a man off n'elfare than keep him on it the of his life. SCHOOLS SHARE BLAME Senator Caller is 68 and an educationist by profession. He ejj the schools as a major tool in the fight against well as a millstone around the necks of the poor. "The educational system con- tributes to poverty and this ap- plies right across the he said. "It fails to answer why some people fail in life." Quebec letters favor action OTTAWA (CP) Letters from Quebec pouring into Prime Minister Trudeau's of- fice are still overwhelmingly in favor of the government ao tion in invoking the War Mea- sures Act, a spokesman for the prime minister said here. Some Quebec HP's report there has been a slight change in mood in their constituencies recently but that there is little outright opposition to the gov- ernment, move. The spokesman for the prime minister said letters from Que- bec on the subject are coming n at about four or five times ;he normal rate. Support con- innes to be about 98 per cent, ic said.

"Social workers can't commu- nicate with the people they're trying to help and the poor can't communicate with them. "The children are handi- capped because the parents aren't interested in education. The school curriculum meets middle class requirements. The school books don't talk about the poor child and what he is materialistic stand- ard all along. "Even the teachers won't teach in slum areas because they feel there is a loss of pres- tige and because the children are poorly disciplined." Senator Fergusson, from Fredericton, was one of the first poverty committee members to break away from formal ses- sions to see the poor first hand. She went twice to visit people in the slums of Halifax and to hear in-person complaints about government-sponsored housing. Mrs. Fergusson said she was told by friends before she joined the committee that there was no real poverty in Canada, and "I was appalled when we started our cross-country tour and peo- ple yelled at A longtime fighter for equal pay for equal work, she said children with working mothers bave a 50-50 chance of winding up poor, because womea earn less money. "It makes me mad that they don't get equal pay for the same work as men. It costs as much for a woman to feed her family, to buy them clothes, as it does a man."
