Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -The Herald- Family Fourth section, The Lethhrtdge Herald Lethbridge, Alberta', Tuesday, October .15, 1974 Pages 33 to 40 Local doctor dedicated fencer RAMON-Q.-R. del VALLE, RIGHT, DUELING WITH HIS WIFE, DOREEN, DURING QLASS Some breakfast cereals 'just sugar carriers' By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Family Writer Ramon del Valle would rather fence than switch. .'A' native of Spain, this Lethbridge ear, nose and throat specialist spends much of his leisure time behind a mask, with foil in hand. Dr. del Valle studied the sport as a youth in Spain and brought his skills along with him and his family when he moved to Canada in 1956. Speaking with a heavy Spanish accent, he says he let the sport slide by him for a few years but decided to pick it up again. Now he's going strong. As instructor of a fencing class on the first, second and fourth Wednesday of each month at the Bowman Arts Dr. del Valle says the local fencers are involved in the sport more for entertainment rather than for championships. "Currently we have 14 full-time members but expect the registration to rise to about 22. We have other interested people, associate members, who attend the classes but aren't allow- ed to vote or participate in the club's social activities." He says part of the reason for a fairly small membership is that- tradition doesn't seem to play a very important role here. "People just don't under- Dr. del Valle holds strongly to the tradition of fencing. He explained the Spanish apparently founded the first fencing schools and the armies carried the sport into Italy. Today more than 60 nations practice fencing, but Italy, France, Hungary and Russia have maintained their supremacy in the Olympics and other international competitions. He estimates fencing clubs in Canada while the United States marks "So, according to population, the numbers are.about equal." As a general rule the fencing clubs of all countries are connected to provin- cial associations, which are members of national associations, and the national associations are members of the Federation Internationale d'Esjrime." "It's like a family tree. Alberta has nine fencing clubs and holds a provin- cial championship annually." 'To become an excelling fencer, he says tremendous stamina is required. During a championship, a fencer fences 30 to 40 bouts in one day. In the local club, nearly half the members are women. Dr. del Valle's wife and daughter participate regularly. He says there are basically three weapons men use in-fencing the foil, the epee and the sabre. But, women only use the foil. He advises members of the club to buy their own foils and masks. "Any fencer fences better with his or her own equipment. But, anyone may use the club's equipment." The first thing he teaches is the technique of 'fingers play', which prevents the wrist from getting tired. Next, is the 'on guard' position; then the advance, retreat, attack, lunge and finally the defence "Fencers use their own terminology. When they attack, they yell or make noises to try to confuse the opponent. Just for fun, when they hit the opponent .fencers will yell, By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA -4 The federal health department has finally decided to do something about the nutrition of those sweet- tasting breakfast cereals that .kids love and many mothers would prefer didn't exist. To ensure that breakfast cer reals in this country are more than "just carriers of sugar and empty the health department is prepar- ing to set an upper limit on the amount of sugar that breakfast cereals can contain. Nutrition experts in Ottawa note that some popular, heavi- ly-advertised brands of breakfast cereals are 50 per cent and more sugar. The move to control the sugar content of the cereals is part of a larger action on the part of the health department to improve the. nutritional con- tent of the cereals and thereby improve the nutrition of many Canadians who are believed to be lacking certain important nutrients in their diets. A related move will be the establishment of a nutritional floor" for breakfast cereals, based on the now-accepted philosophy in the department that the cereal products should be as good and complete nutritionally as the cereal grams from which they are derived. Federal health department experts said in interviews that many of the breakfast cereals sold today dp not have any nu- trients added, to replace the vitamins; minerals and even protein destroyed or lost dur- ing processing.

FOUNDED BY LOYOLA The Society of Jesus, or Jes-' uit order, was founded in 1534 by the Spanish priest Ignatius Loyola. With some types of cereals, such as those made of "ex- ploded" cereal grains, the loss of nutrients is substantial. Even in the instances in which nutrients- are added, often the quantities are not sufficient. Most cereals derive most of the nutrition from the milk added to them. Dr. A. B. Morrison, assis- tant deputy minister of health, said he is particularly concerned that so many cereals, especially the heavily sweetened ones, are "just carriers.of empty calories." Discussions between cereal industry and government offi- cials are expected to start later this year, with the aim of developing exact nutritional limits, both upper and lower, for breakfast cereals. Dr. Morrison said that since many cereal manu- facturers have shown interest in improv- the nutritional values of their products, the health department expects relatively quick action leading to specific nutritional guidelines and regulations for breakfast cereals in Canada. At present, regulations un- der the Food and Drugs Act establish only upper limits for 'the addition of some nutrients to breakfast cereals. THE BOWMAN ARTS CENTRE DR. del VALLE COACHES HIS STUDENTS VIRGIL WRIGHT, LErsTi AND Birth control not always solution HALIFAX (CP) The notion that birth control will put developing countries on the road to success is twisted thinking, says .an Oxfam field representative in South America. Mike McCormack says exporting family planning is a Western method of overcoming the fear that an increased Third World pop- ulation will put a strain on food consumption patterns in the West. Mr. McCormick was ra Halifax recently as part of a cross-country tour before returning to his headquarters hi Lima, Peru. He said increased populations in South American, African and Asian countries threaten the standard of living in Western countries. But food shortages could be blam- ed more on food consumption patterns in the West than on production. Most South American countries have an ar- tificial rather than a real population problem, he said. They contained enough natural resources for their citizens but their, resources belonged to Western companies. These companies took a disproportionate share of the wealth, leaving the major part of the population in the host country landless and destitute. Cutting down or stabilizing the population hi South America would only mean a con- tinual drain on South American natural resources by foreign capital.
