You're probably in the same boat as some Lethbridge the city police and a local football coach in fighting the battle of the bulge. Nutrition Canada has a for- mula -to determine how you or how you ate. Take your height in inches and divide it by the cube root of your weight in pounds. The answer is you mathematics teacher who helped with The calculation says it sho'uld be If you get a figure below 12.5 you are overweight. If you come out above 12.5 you're okay. The formula considers only height and does not take into account some factors your doctor would probably con- sider in assessing your weight body or sex. A Nutrition Canada survey showed more than 50 per cent of Canadians aged 20 or more are and results here are in line with this.

His was just short of the dividing line between below normal and above normal weight. Normal weight for a six as calculated by the is 191 pounds.

It may work for people six feet and he says but for some teachers who used the formula at LCI the calculations for shorter teachers brought higher nor- mal weights than they would have expected. Mathematics chairman Bruce Steed says think it would probably be a good guide for most normal normal body But he says it would not work for those who popeye for instance. Nor would it work for those who have muscular says Mr. Stolearcius. In the light weight Dick Lethbridge West leads the way. His ponderal index of 13.9 well exceeds the 12.5 index in- dicating normal weight. Mr. weighing in at 145 its 54 pounds less than the weight set for a man six- feet one-inch in stature.

Expanding role seen for nurses OTTAWA Nursing education is moving in the right the president of the Canadian Health Association said this week. Dr. Boyd Suttie of St. speaking on the third day of a national nursing said he sees the movement towards communi- ty health centres and the ex- panded role of the nurse as two hopeful signs.
