But now it is official he is the weaker sex. At least that is the word from the British Medical Association. The association estimates that the average British male can expect to live only 66 years. Women in this country on the other hand can expect to live to the ripe old age of 72. The trouble is. the associa- tion said in a booklet called Family Doctor, the British male is far more likely to keel over suddenly from heart dis- ease, cancer, a stroke or an accident. That was the bad news. The good news, the associa- WINNERS of tha 1973 Aitumptlon C.W.L. FALL BAZAAR Allca Kanaahiro 2605 10 'A' Ava. N. Lathbrldga 2nd Prlza Mra.

On top of a shorter life span the British male has a long list of problems which may in- clude constipation, headaches, insomnia, im- potence and also stress at work. The booklet set out ways to relieve the dif- ficulties. MATING HELPS It said that generally a married man has a much better health than a single man. 'The importance of com- munication in a happy marriage cannot be too highly stressed." the booklet added. "Take the time to talk to your wife about the things that matter to you and to listen when she talks about the things that matter to her." On sex, the booklet said im- potence can occur for the most trivial reasons, but it ''is just a transient thing. It is not a sign of anything except that you are tired or drunk or not feeling too good. "Occasional impotence is nothing to worry about." Many people believe im- potence is inevitable in old age. after you see your doctor bring your prescription to 1 609 Ave. S iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiii "This is not the booklet emphasized in capital letters.

Mobile breathalizer stalks motorists By ALAN LEITH DARTMOUTH. N.S. (CP) Motorists using Nova Scotia highways should keep an eye out for an incon- spicuous looking van, es- pecially if they have had a drink or two. The van, much like the ones that deliver bread and other goods, is usually parked alongside one of the busier highways with several RCMP officers manning a roadblock, doing spot-checks on drivers and vehicles. If you have been drinking and are stopped for a check, you may be asked to take a breath test in the van. Trying to dodge it by wanting to talk to your lawyer first will not help you much because there is a mobile phone in the van. The test machine measures the amount of alcohol in your blood and if it shows a reading of .08 per cent or more, you are legally impaired and in no condition to drive. S. Sgt. T. C. Smith, in WeeWhimsv Shawn McCail will be sent the original an for his quote. Send your child's quotation to this papr' charge of a program which has been trying the van all over Nova Scotia, where the RCMP are the provincial police, said no long-term deci- sion about the van has been made but initial results show the spot checks are valuable.

Sgt. Smith said. "The checking has been well received by the public and they understand the nature of the check is to make the highways safer because we make vehicle checks and detect suspended or unlicens- ed drivers, and. on occasion, the odd impaired driver." he said. "The breathalyzer unit has been used on every day we have operated the program." "Some have said they appreciate the work we are he said of the thousands of drivers who have gone through the spot check. "We tried to make a count of all the vehicles we stopped but we found on the first day that accuracy was im- possible." He did estimate that as many as 1.500 vehicles had been checked in a single eight- hour period. The checks have turned up a number of offences under the Motor Vehicle Act. including expired safety stickers, use of vehicles deemed unfit for road use and a few seizures under the Liquor Control Act.
