Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22-THE LETHBRIDQE October The Herald Family Women barbers need good sense of humor Labels on home remedies will include ingredients Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Starting Jan. 1, 1976, it will no longer be a deep, dark secret about what is contained in the thousands of patent medicines and other home remedies sold in Canada without a prescription, for treating the common cold and hundreds of other ailments. Under federal legislation in- troduced in the Senate, the Patent and Proprietary Medicines Act would be repealed and all of the 2000 home medicines transferred to the more stringent Food and Drugs Act. Health Minister Marc Lalbnde explained this week that the major change will be the requirement that all of the ingredients of such products be listed on the label, effec- tive Jan. 1, 1976. He said that the government is proposing to give the manu- facturers of home remedies a full year before they have to change the labels of their products, so they have enough time to adjust to the new law. "It would cost a lot of money if they had to dump ex- isting he said. Mr. Lalonde added that the new regulations covering the home remedies might be pro- mulgated quickly after the bill is passed, so that manufac- turers would be able to start listing ingredients on their product labels before Jan. 1, 1976, if they so wished. He said the government in- tends to place patent and pro- prietary medicines under the same, strict regulations on safety and efficacy as now ap- ply to prescription drugs. As an example, the home remedies would be subject to much more stringent pre- market testing requirements for new products than under, the existing law. And the federal health department would have the power to order home remedies withdrawn from the market if there was any serious question about either the safety or the usefulness of a product. "You have to be able to take a lot of says one of Lethbridge's few woman barbers. Marji Dyck, 20, says she'd recommend her job to any woman who enjoys meeting people, has a good sense of humor, can wield a mean pair of scissors and doesn't mind wearing sensible shoes. "The sensible insists Marji, "are a must. Maybe even more important than the sense of humor." A native of Nipawin, Saskatchewan, Ms. Dyck didn't stray into men's hairstyling as an adjunct to giving perms and dye jobs in a women's beauty parlor. "I never really had any desire to work in a beauty says the 20 year old, a graduate of Saskatoon's Kelsey Institute of Applied Arts and Science's one year barber- ing and hairstyling course. "I prefer working with men and having male customers. I guess it's because most women want something different every week; they want more frills and they're well, they're just fussier." Ms. Dyck says she has cut women's hair as a student, giving 30-cent haircuts was a good way to get practice and admits some women can be as casual about their styling as men. "I've even had about 10 or 15 women in she gestures to the Razor's Edge at the Centre Village Mall, where she's bartered since August. "They say they like it and bring a mend when they come back." SHORTER HERE Barbers are something like bartenders: from their xnique position, they can offer some unusual insights into human nature. "Men are a lot more hair conscious than they used to says Ms. Dyck. "But in Lethbridge, hair is worn shorter than other places. When I first came here, I thought everyone was either a cowboy or an athlete. Prom under the chair cloth, the main thing you see are people's feet. And it seemed everyone here wore either sneakers or cow- boy boots." Aside from her preference for male com- pany, Ms. Dyck says she would probably earn somewhat less money as a women's hairdresser: If you're in need of a hair cut in a hurry, consider a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday: "Those are our slackest says Ms. Dyck. "You won't have to stand in Older customers, she says, have the most difficulty adjusting to a "girl "The older men snicker a she says, "but the younger men like having a woman barber. I think'I'm able to handle the children better than a man would. Maybe I'm a mother figure to them." Are barbers privy to a lot of customer confessions? "Once in a says Ms. Dyck, "but usually we just talk about general things, and usually I do most of the talking Sometimes men say things to try and em- barrass me, but I'm used to that sort of thing by now." She says she no longer dreams of running her fingers through men's curly locks, but has made an important discovery: bald spots are a good place for barbers to warm their cold fingers. And in case you were wondering, Marji Dyck knows for sure: "Men do gossip, as much as women are supposed to, sometimes even more."

Male anesthesiologists aiso ran heightened risk of father- ing children with birth defects. They experience no greater chance of cancer, but did have increased liver dis- ease. "The results of the survey strongly suggest that working in the operating room and presumably exposure to trace concentrations of anesthetic agents entails a variety of health hazards for operating room personnel and their the study's authors concluded. The study was conducted by a group of seven medical school professors from around the United States who are ex- perts in anesthesiology. The group cautioned that some study findings lacked statistical validity, meaning particular findings might be the result of random chance and not an actual relationship.
