Passing of the miniskirt mourned, may mean increased back problems By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) The passing of the miniskirt may be responsible for an increase in backaches among women, says Kenneth Wood of Clinton, Out. "With minis they had to bend from the knees to pre- serve their modesty. "That's the secret in lifting and carrying. People must be taught to use their legs more and their backs less because there is more strength in the legs. We bend from the waist which puts a strain on the back." Mr. Wood is president of the Ontario Chiropractic Associa- tion and as such, concerned with the back, with the spine and the nervous system. He says most people are in bad condition for doing the lifting and carrying chores most people have to do, put- ting up storm windows, shov- elling snow, carrying boats and motors at a cottage, lean- ing from a badly balanced po- sition to paint or clean an eavestrough. "It's our way of life. Most people work at sedentary oc- cupations. If they don't drive, they don't go. "There has been an in- crease in back problems that I ascribe to our lack of physi- cal conditioning." He says most people take their backs for granted unless they have a problem. He says they should not do are things anyone can do to help maintain a back in good condition. When you sit, use a hard chair and put your spine up against it. If you can, keep one or both of your knees higher than your hips. When you stand, try to keep your lower back flat. When you work standing up, if you put one foot on a low footrest it csn help relieve swayback. When you lean forward, bend your knees. Women's shoes with moder- ate heels put less strain on the back than high heels. You should sleep on a firm mattress or put a bedboard a soft mattress. If you sleep on your back, put a pil- low under your knees. If you sleep on your side keep your legs bent at the knees and the hips. Don't sleep on your stomach. TELLS HOW TO LIFT Lift properly, with your knees bent and your leg mus- cles taking the strain. Try not to lift anything heavy over your head. When you carry something heavy, carry it close to your body. If you work at a desk all day, get up and move around when you have a chance. Get regular exercise such as walking or swimming, but don't try anything strenuous unless you are in condition. Then give your muscles a chance to warm up and loosen before you start. Mr. Wood says he is espe- cially concerned shout the ef- fects of snowmobiling on peo- ple's backs. "Snow machines are basi- cally badly designed. They're stuck with an old concept, that we're still riding a horse, so you get bumps and bangs on the base of your spine. "You should ride in a crouched position or on your knees."

Could one cause be that the cookwarc pieces are not adequate? Surprising as it may seem this is often the case. Pots and pans are available in a variety of materials to suit every cooking need. Thus a handy kitchen has them, bul not as a set of the "perfect" material. Start with a few good quality pieces. These are never a luxury, for seldom will they need to be replaced. There is nothing as discouraging nor an- noying as a warped pan which gives poor results. Check the pan before you buy. It needs to be sturdy, well bal- anced and have a lid which fits tightly. Rounded corners, small rims and no seams will make it easy to clean. Know the properties of the materials and choose to suit your needs and the care given. Cast iron is heavy, durable, somewhat brittle- Although it may be considered ugly it is un- surpassed as far as even brown- ing and long slow carefree cooking. Pans made of cast iron require "seasoning." Do this in the following manner. Wash, rinse, and dry well. Generous- ly cover the ulterior with un- salted fat. Heat in a slow oven at 250 to 300 deg. F. for several hours. Remove from the oven, cool, wipe off excess fat. Grease after use for a few weeks. Use soap rather than detergent and dry well for a pot that will be always to good condition. Enamelled cast iron has the same excellent cooking qual- ities. It has an advantage to that it is so handsome as to be able to go directly from the oven or the top of 3-our range to the table. It will not discolor food and it is easv lo clean. It is more expensive and will chip with overheating or sharp im- pact. Heavy east aluminum has all the advantages of cast iron, bul it cannot go directly lo Ihe ta- ble. There are many different qualities of aluminum utensils; Ihe least expansive warp bad- ly. All aluminum will pit where the household water contains alkali, it will darken w hen fruits and vegetables are cook- ed in it. There are two meth- ods to remove such stains you can cook acid foods, for ex- ample rhubarb, in the pen, or you can boil a solution of 1 or 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar in 1 quart of water for 5 lo 10 minutes- Restore the shine by rubbing with soap filled steel pads, such gs SOS. Stainless steel has remark- able resistance lo heal, corro- sion, stains from water and food, acids and alkalies. But it is a poor heat conductor. To overcome this, copper, alumi- num or carbon steel is used as a core or on the bottom of the pot. This may cause cleaning problems. Pyroceram, perhaps the best known trade name is "Corn- ing has similar proper- ties to glass but is stronger wearing. It can be used for sur- face cookery if a low or med- ium heat is used. Since it lends to build up heat, foods often slick. Since it retains heat well it is popular for oven cookery and as a casserole at the table. Earthenware is also popular for casseroles since it retains heat well. It usually has an attractive glaze. It must be han- dled with care since it breaks and chips easily. Non stick coatings may be very useful on aluminum and stainless steel cookware which do not distribute heat evenly. What should be a starter col- lection? Consider the pots' ver- satility and qualities. Can they used in various ways, in the oven, on the lop burners, in the freezer, on (he table? Exactly what, depends on your menus and your own preferences- My suggestion is to add through the years as needs arise.
