Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta It-THE LETHMIDQE HERALD Friday, October Karen Maenussen off the ice i Nice girls can finish first THIS IS NOT A MAN'S WORLD... By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor Cynical, world weary journalists must be very frustrated after an interview with Karen Magnussen. The trouble is, the girl is nice. I mean, she strikes you as siacerely nice person: natural, unassuming, gregarious. How can you generate any headlines out of that7 And you have to wonder if the wide smile, the flashing eyes and the eagerness to answer questions is for real. After all, Karen Magnussen has practically lived oa skates for the past 14 years; she's won 18 first place titles including that of 1973 World's Champion; she's accustom- ed to impressing judges and daz- zling audiences. Now she's a pro, she's in 'show biz' on a three year contract with the Ice Capades. She's earning big money for the first time in her career and she's constantly on the road, meeting people, giving interviews, smiling, ever smiling. Can there be a real person un- derneath the costumes and super- ficial glamour? You bet your gaiters there can. And she jumps out at you within the first five minutes you talk to her. Miss Magnussen is petite; on the ice she skates with a combination of precision and strength which somehow gives the impression of fragility and grace. In person, she appears to be the type of woman strong men would rush to protect. But male brawn is not needed, thank you very much. Karen Magnussen has enough grit and courage for two people. Where else would she have had the determina- tion for her 1970 'comeback' in which she regained her crown as Canadian champion and placed fourth in World's competitions after suffering painful stress fractures in both legs? Now 22 and considering an even- tual career as a skating instructor, Miss Magnussen could never be call- ed the flaming radical of sport, but neither is she a mindless papier mache dolly. In that disarming, eager manner of hers, she'll offer a comment or opinion on any subject tossed at her. On discrimination against women athletes: "I'm not exactly what you'd call a staunch women's she grimaces and laughs. "I'm for equal work for equal pay but that's about it. Women are becoming more aware of their own abilities and' that's good. This is not a man's world women play an-important role too. I certainly haven't been dis- criminated against. I've gotten as much help from -the government as men skaters nave; perhaps more, since I've been doing well." On mixing and politics and sports: "Things have improved in the past 10 years, athletes are getting much more financial support from governments. But athletes don't want political decisions to deter- mine who competes, or where and how they perform. That's what's so tough about competing against, teams from the Iron countries. We skate because we want to; Russian athletes are groomed and drilled to win, to score a political victory." "On Canadian's physical fitness: "We're all guilty of being too lazy. We spend too much time sitting in front of the television eating potato chips. Parents are to blame, they should be out skiing or playing ten- nis with their children. And school physical education programs sure don't help much. What's the good of throwing a bean On her first near disastrous com- mercials: "I'm not-sorry I made them, I'm just sorry they turned out as they did. I couldn't watch them myself for a long time. But I'd never done one before, I'm not an actress I'd be the first to admit it and my squeaky voice disappointed people. The spots were-done too fast, with hardly any rehearsal. I will be mak- ing more commercials I think these will turn out better. Maybe do- ing commercials does demean specific sports and athletes, but peo- ple forget the 14 years (at eight or ten hours a day) I put into skating, without really earning a living at it On athletes' use of drugs: "I'm totally against it. It's not natural and it abuses the body. It disgusts me." WOMEN PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE New laws urgently needed to combat sex prejudice OTTAWA (CP) A tax analysis showing that men continue to earn substantially higher, incomes than women underlines the urgent need for new laws against sex dis- crimination, Dr. Katie Cooke, chairman of the federal advi- sory council on the status of women, said last week. Dr. Cooke said the federal government should introduce quickly amendments to the Canada Labor Code banning job discrimination on the grounds of sex, marital status or age. The labor code covering transport, communications and other industries currently prohibits discrimination on the of race, religion or national origin. Dr. Cooke was commenting "on a recently-released govern- ment analysis of 1972 personal income tax returns showing the average income for male taxpayers was and for females, The average-, for all taxpayers was "This just proves what we've been saying, that women are still being treated -The Herald Family Child care facilities under investigation as second class citizens and that there is discrimination hi Dr. Cooke said. She said the labor code should be broadened to allow aggrieved women workers in industries under federal jurisdiction to sue their employers if they are bypass- ed for promotion solely on the grounds of sex.

Vera Ferguson VOTE Common Sense Service Dependability FERGUSON Vitamin C lacking in most brands of tomato juice By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Most tomato juice sold in Canada suffers from a vitamin C deficiency, according to the federal health department. And as one of a number of steps to ensure Canadians don't suf- fer from a vitamin C deficiency themselves, the government is proposing that all of the vitamin C lost in processing, to modern 'agriculture techniques, and even to the action of Mother Nature, must be replaced with artificial vitamin C. Oddly enough, until the proposals are transformed into actual federal regulations, the country's tomato juice makers will not be allowed to add any vitamin C ot their products. The reason: the federal government until very recently has believed, as do most people, that tomato juice had enough natural vitamin C in it, according to Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the federal health protection branch. "There was no need to add vitamin C" or even allow anyone to add it to tomato juice, he suggested or so it seemed. In fact, tomato juice is the only fruit juice or drink other than citrus juices which the Food and Drug Act regulations won't allow artificial fortification with vitamin C. The health department changed its stance almost over night after doing studies on the actual vitamin C content of various brands of Tomato Juice. The results showed that while some tdmato juice contained the expected 20 milligrams per 100 some products contained as little as 3 milligrams per 100 millilitres. The average for the juices tested was IS milligrams. The government proposes to require that all tomato juice con- tain 2fr milligrams per 100 millilitres of vitamin C, Dr. Morrison said. Health department experts believe that some of the Vitamin C is lost in processing, most likely as a result of high heat. But modern farming can also be the culprit Many modern varieties of tomatoes, often developed to withstand the rigors of mechanical handling during picking and processing, don't con- tain as much vitamin C as the traditional varieties, the health department suggested. The provincial government is considering changes in legislation to upgrade facilities and standards for all child care arrangements, including occasional babysitting situations. Larry Austman, ad- ministrator of licensing for the homes and institutions branch of the department of health and social development, says the govern- ment may be heading towards legislation which would provide a "more stimulating environment and higher levels of care" for all children, no matter what sort of babysitting or day care facili- ty is involved. Hie priorities for improved day care services, are" accepted, the commitment is there, says Austman of his department "And we have ample evidence that interest in the area of day care and child care services is blossoming." In a telephone interview this week, Mr. Austman said his department is "looking into" situations such as babysitting provided by bowling alleys but is not yet ready to take any new action. In the case of babysitting provided by two Lethbridge bowling alleys, Mr. Austman said he is waiting to receive information and application for licencing forms from the alley managers. "We have a report on the situation from social workers at our regional office in he added, "and if, upon investigation, the bowling alley facilities are hcensable, we will work the alleys towards meeting the proper standards." Even though the Welfare Home Act offers only general guidelines, the department can become involved to en- sure "there is proper care" in such situations. HAVE PUNCH "If managers of such businesses as bowling alleys don't co operate in filling out the required forms and if we access them as coming under the act, we do have the punch to require that they co-operate with us and suggest they im- prove the service." In extreme cases, "On the basis that we're not happy with what's going on in caring for the children, we could close then- babysitting service added Austman. "We're not building em- emphasizes the ad- ministrator. "What we're concerned with is the children. And there are those who say our standards for da; care licensing are, at best, minimal "As it now ,exists! babysitting arrangements pend on the level of the parents' decision and what they consider suitable. So what we ha've is some children spending several days a week in a good centre, while others spend several hours in an un- stimulating atmosphere. And we're wondering why it should be permissible for these ine- qualities."
