Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 8-THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Tuesday, October 10, 1973 Nurses appalled by poor treatment SASKATOON (CP) Doc- tors even women doctors all too frequently do not give proper treatment or advice to women patients, says a group that spent the past summer operating a self-help health clinic for women. A survey of 65 women who came to the clinic indicated that doctors sometimes neglect to ask for medical histories, usually do not teach breast self-examination and do not ask patients to return regularly for cancer detection measures such as Pap tests. "We were quite appalled ac- said Audrey Hall, a 29-year-old British nurse and unofficial spokesman for the clinic. "We knew that things were being overlooked, but we didn't think it was to this ex- tent. "Only 13 of these women were instructed on breast self- examination. That's just in- defensible, I think." Miss Hall, a soft-spoken young woman who wears a ring with the women's libera- tion movement symbol, said in an interview that women doctors may be slightly better than male doctors in treating women patients and giving Retardation reduced in next decade WINNIPEG (CP) Two specialists in the field of men- tal retardation have predicted that the incidence of that affliction will be significantly reduced within the next decade. Dr. Ronald Christie of Toronto and Dr Wolf Wolfensberger of New York made the prediction at the 16th annual meeting of the Canadian Association for the Mentally Retarded "It seems to me there are things causing mental retar- dation now that should not be, and which will be eliminated as causes in the near Dr. Christie said. Dr. Christie said medical advances have wiped out many causes of mental retar- dation, particularly those oc- curring in the pre-natal and immediate post-natal periods. "What we need to do now is to educate the medical profes- sion and the public let them know about these he said. Dr. Wolfenberger said he believes that if poverty could be eliminated, the incidence of mental retardation would drop drastically, as people in lower economic environments comprise a large proportion of the retarded population He also predicted that abor- tion will have an important effect on incidence of retarda- tion as doctors can now diagnose in advance many cases of pre-natal defects. THE BETTER HALF them health information, but only slightly. CLINIC CONTINUES Because of what they saw as deficiencies in the medical system, Miss Hall and several other women operated a self- help clinic with an Oppor- tunities for Youth grant dur- ing the summer, teaching more than 100 women some of the fundamentals of health care. The clinic is being con- tinued this winter, on a more limited basis. Clinic personnel found the women who came enthusiastic but often lacking in the most basic information, siad Miss Hall: "I think that we managed to get over to them basically what female anatomy consists of. And an awful lot of women really don't know. "They sort of know vaguely that they've got this area down there but it's somehow not a very nice place to talk about or to think about. And they know very little about their internal reproductive organs generally." Among the themes stressed was that women should not be ashamed of such female characteristics as the menstrual cycle. "It's all hung up with all kinds of cultural myths and sort of slightly unsavory feelings about it. "We concentrated very much on emphasizing that this was part of normal function and that we should really appreciate our body's func- tioning normally and kind of enjoy it." TEACH BASICS The women were taught basic hygiene and what a person can do for herself: "For instance, women are prone to bladder infection. Now if a woman's got a basic understanding of good hygiene she can do a lot to prevent and treat that kind of thing. "Practically every woman sometime in her life is going to have this problem. She is going to get a bladder or a vaginal infection. "She usually gets little help from the medical profession in dealing with it. And you can do a lot to deal with it yourself." Miss Hall, who worked for five years as a nurse in the Canadian North, said one way to improve public knowledge of health care would be to make health education the major role of nurses.

Mrs. Canadine was among the group who attended- the scouts' Crystal Palace rally in London, England, in 1909, to ask the scout founder, Lord Baden Powell, to help organize a similiar association for girls. In January 1910, she became one of the world's Cigarette abolishes hunger pain Diet book a crutch for ex-smokers LONDON (Reuter) Ex- smokers now have a diet book to help them through those agonizing days when over- eating seems the only way to forget about cigarettes. 'I think the main reason for people going back to the dangerous habit is because they find they get fat when they don't says author Dr. Philip Lawson. He calls these turncoats "the I'd- rather-smoke-myself to- death-than-eat-myself into- the-grave brigade." Scientifically, there is good 'evidence that ex-smokers gain weight rapidly and face special hardships in trying to diet. A study among steelworkers in South Wales showed that lifelong non smokers over the age of 40 were on average almost 13 pounds heavier than smokers. But Dr. Lawson notes in The Ex-Smokers Diet Boook that even the smokers are, on average, 15 pounds over weight at this age. And he adds bluntly: "Fat smokers die even more frequently than fat non-smokers." STAVES OFF HUNGER The simple fact is that smoking one cigarette can abolish "hunger pain" con- tractions of the stomach for anything from 15 minutes to an hour. Smoking also reduces the volume and acidity of the Tall grass no good for Secretariat TORONTO (CP) Penny Tweedy, owner of Triple Crown winner Secretariat, and trainer Lucien Laurin visited Woodbine race track during the weekend but left without making a decision on whether Secretariat will run here Oct. 28. Mrs. Tweedy's famous three-year-old thoroughbred has been invited to run in the Canadian International Championship Stakes Oct. 28. The owner, and trainer toured the track here arid walked the Marshall turf course on which the Inter- national will be run. Both were impressed with the good condition of the turf course but had doubts about how well Secretariat could ad- just to the Marshall course's grass which is much longer and denser than on the New York courses he is used to. CUT THE GRASS "He's not used to the tall grass you have said Laurin. "It's like running on a heavy track. If the grass were cut would please me. The) did say they plan to roll it." Laurin said that if they do decid" to ship Secretariat here, he would still not be a definite starter Oct. 28. "We'd have to gallop him on the course every day, then de- termine from there." "If he can't handle it, "we wouldn't run said Mrs. Tweedv. trie juices, thus causing im- perfect and slow digestion and lowered means a smaller meal next time. Then there's the psychology of smoking, especially the bit that says its a hangover from infancy with the cigarette or pipe or cigar serving as a sub- stitute nipple. Lawson, who gave up smok- ing 15 years ago, finds this type of argument absurd. But he adds: "The inhalation of the smoke mimics, physiologically, the process of swallowing and can be viewed, from the psy- chological standpoint anyway, as a form of eating." One oddity among the statistics is this: heavy smokers tend to weigh more than light or moderate smokers. But the ex-smoker is likely to outweigh them all unless he takes postive steps to curb his food intake. This is made even harder by his sudden rediscovery, on kicking the nicotine habit, of his latent senses of taste and smell. Suddenly, food is exciting again. LISTS CATEGORIES How to cope? Lawson says a lot depends on just what type of smoker you were. He cites a five category list drawn up by researchers of the London Institute of Physchiatry: "Psycho-social" smokers, who do not inhale, are simply smoking for for the first time. They should have no weight problem on giving up. But Dr. Lawson has a statistic especially for the first timers: A teen-ager only needs to smoke once to have a 70 per cent chance of smoking for the next 40 years. The "indulgent" smoker smokes only when relaxing, usually not regularly, gets pleasure from the "business" of actual feel of the cigarette in the mouth So the ex-indulgent smoker should seek out fiddly foods like unpeeled prawns, kebabs or snails to keep him busy and fulfilled. The third main type of smoker is the basically a nervous, conscious person who uses cigarettes to relieve tension and anxiety. "Denied tobacco, he will often turn to alcohol as a sedative in a stressful situation." NEEDS BULKY FOODS What the ex-tranquillizer smoker needs is bulky (though low-calorie) foods. He should fill up on clear soup, salad, fruit and plenty of cheese. Use I the cheese early in the meal to act as a stomach filler and' fend off the hunger pains. Try pausing 10 minutes between courses, too; that can help cut down total intake. And if he still needs to drink dry wines like hock and claret are not too moderation, of course. The "stimulation" smoker is seeking a quick shot of adrenalin, released by the nicotine. More sleep and more energy foods like oranges, eggs and watercress will give him vitality nature's way. Finally, the real hard core smokers, called "addictives." They are hooked on smoking and suffer acute withdrawal symptoms when they stop. When they do manage to beat the craving, they turn to eating and, having sacrificed their cigarettes, are most reluctant to surrender any of its pleasures. When they finally see the need to lose weight, Lawson says, they should seek their doctor's approval to go on a three day fast, as a starter. After that, they can launch into a regular, balanced diet. Last-chance campaign helps South African By BARBARA ROBSON TORONTO (CP) A million federal government advertising campaign is what finally convinced a shy 22- year-old South African girl to surface from the ranks of il- legal immigrants. Lillian Motiki, now a business college student in Toronto, said here that she registered for landed- immigrant status in or four days after she noticed the posters advertising the 60-day, last- chance campaign. Halloween program 'scary fun' This year's Halloween ex- citement will get an added boost from the Lethbridge YWCA's haunted house. Hopefully, this will become an annual event for all trick-or- treaters six years of age and over. All those who are daring, and even those who are not, are invited to come and enjoy a deliciously spooky, spine- tingling visit to the haunted house, in the Fish and Game Association's club house at the bottom of Kinsmen Park, 9th Ave. and 10th St. S. It is right on a bus route, and easi- ly accessible to everyone. The haunted house will be open next week on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 25 and 26, from 6 to 10 p.m., and Satur- day, Oct. 27, from 1 to 10 o'clock. Dates and times for the following week will ,be an- nounced later. Twenty-five cents admis- sion is all it costs to visit many of your favorite haunts for Halloween, and a refresh- ment stand will also offer special treats. She arrived in Toronto from Cape Town Nov. 6, 1972, to join her brother Joseph, his wife and sister. The only fami- ly member who didn't have landed status when the blitz began Aug. 15, she now numbers among im- migrants approved for lan- ding. Prior to facing immigration officials accompanied by her brother, Miss Motiki said: "I thought about it but I was too scared. I thought they would send me home." She still refers to Cape Town as home, but it now means memories of dis- crimination and a clothing- factory job she took after leaving school at 16. "At home you couldn't sit on trains or buses beside the Europeans. The blacks couldn't afford to send their children to schools. I came to Canada to further my education." The six-month business course at a college near the house she shares with her relatives will be first step to a job, she said. While remaining in Canada before being granted legal status, she didn't look for work but renewed a visitor's permit three times. A few weeks after applying for landed status, she receiv- ed word of approval "it was very nice." The official papers and transfer of passport have yet to be com- pleted. Miss Motiki said she has met many South Africans in Toronto but knows of no im- migrants who have been too afraid to come forward during the 60-day campaign. A spokesman for the depart- ment of manpower and im- migration in Toronto said per- sons still here illegally after yesterday's deadline will be. liable to immediate deporta- tion without appeal.
