Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 36-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-WcdlWMtay, October 30, 1974 West coasting' I deadly VANCOUVER (CP) Photographs of tissue from the dead man's lungs showed thousands of tiny talc par- ticles, each surrounded by a tough growth which choked the tiny air spaces of the lungs The man was a victim of the growing practice among drug addicts of injecting into a vein a solution containing ground-up drug tablets. The man's death, reported in the British Columbia Medical Journal, was caused b> the talc powder carried by the blood to the lung and becoming trapped in the minute blood vessels where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged. Talc powder is commonly used in pills as a filler and compacting agent. The technique, known to drug addicts as "west has been used with anti-histamines, central ner- vous system stimulants, bar- biturates and natural and syn- thetic narcotics, says author Dr J. H Battershill, director of the TV Stationary Chest Clinic in nearby New West- minster The making of a patchwork quilt A new program of quilt-making is being started all across Canada with women's work departments of the Canadian Red Cross Society. Lethbridge quliters, from left to right, are Ethel Hicks, Edith Hendrie, Ellen Johnson and Maude Sinclair. Emma Hargreaves of the local women's work department, says only four or five women show interest in quilting at the weekly Friday sessions from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Red Cross Building. It is hoped that more women attend the sessions to make patchwork quilts which will be sold, the money going towards Red Cross pro- grams.

A color TV is a complicated product. -Sometimes selecting the right set is difficult "Generally, there are three major points people should consider when looking for a color TV: Picture and color quality, ease of tuning and set said James Gar- land, marketing manager, Ca- nadian General Electric home entertainment products. General Electric has come up with some tips on how to get the most value when buy- ing a TV color set. It's a 12- page booklet, available in French or English, on How to Buy Color just its own product but from any- body Vacuum by solid-state devices, transis- tors, integrated circuits and other miniature components- generated a lot of heat, a ma- jor cause of problems in the early days of color TV, it said. Also vacuum tubes would deteriorate over a period of time before failure, causing less efficient TV per- formance. shop a-plenty! coats All wools >n and m closvc belted 6y S Down f.lltd for or loose natne New fafl warmifc 20% off dresses pants ski jackets d '39.99 20% off s and Wends Sweed loafcs and Pull on ond fcuJion ttyJet Plam and Reg to 98 pant suits blazers tore OT ioc tSirl Plait" Sy Cordwrcy wnd vuede loot Reg Srfe 9.99 9.99 Solid-state devices 'reduce the heat buildup, the result is less deterioration, a more consistent level of perform- ance and an increased life cycle. Solid-state components are not perfect They sometimes fail. To service a color TV ef- ficiently manufacturers have designed 100 per cent solid- state TVs with plug-in modu- les. "The major advantage to the owner is'that if a service call is required, the time spent locating the problem is said Mr. Garland. "In most cases the set can be put back into working order right in the home." Screen sizes range from 10 to 26 inches, so viewers have a wide selectidh to fit particu- lar needs Increased picture detail has been designed into new mod- els by the use of improved "black matrix" picture tubes. Basically, the hundreds of thousands of tiny color dots or rectangles that make op the picture tube are surrounded by a jet-black background. This accents the color and in- creases contrast. CONTROLS VARY Obtaining the most pleasing balance of color intensity, brightness and contrast has been made easier. Manufao turers are making more units with automatic and special controls to simplify tuning. In many cases, these automatic controls are acti- vated by a single button. But not every person's per- ception of color is the same and some producers allow a margin for "personal prefer- ence adjustment" with their "one-button" controls. So you have these options: Manual setting of color controls, auto- matic and automatic with margin for personal prefer- ence. Another point is the war- ranty and the reputation of the dealer. Most color TVs offer at least a 90-day warranty on parts and labor with an ad- ditional year for the picture tube. Ask for a copy of the warranty. Also check the availability of service from the dealer or manufacturer. A reputable dealer will provide this infor- mation willingly. After all, if yon are satis- fied with the product and ser- vice from the color TV, yon are likely to come back.

Should we be pumping ourselves-iull of vitamin C before the cold or do we need it at all? Even the experts disagree! The highly respected and chemist, Dr. Linus Pauling, in his book Vitamin C and the Common Cold, prescribes large doses of vitamin C to ward off the cold. Current research at the University of Toronto School of Hygiene, by Dr. T. W. Anderson, will be completedin November and may strike a serious blow to vitamin C sales. Meanwhile, consumers are the target of vitamin over-sell as the cash registers in drug stores, department stores and health food stores ring-up soaring vitamin supplement sales. In his book, Dr. Pauling related his personal story and research. He concludes that to milligrams of vitamin C a day are necessary. No one ever mentioned that Dr. Pauling didn't know how his own personal regimen would work for other people. Then, about two years ago, he wrote a letter to the Canadian Medical Journal, in effect, prophesying that people who took 000 milligrams of vitamin C a day would only have half as many colds. That's about 100 to 200 times the'amount needed to pre- vent scurvy and 20 to 40 times the average adult need. This letter to the medical journal triggered a study in Canada that has attracted'the attention of the medical com- munity all over the world. There are three phases to-Dr. Anderson's study at the University of Toronto. The results of the first two phases are out and the third study will be finished by November. Dr. Anderson has some very strong opinions on the whole controversy and is quite willing to give some straight answers. He told me that in the first phase, half of his volunteers received vitamin C and half received a dummy pill. He found there was absolutely no effect on the frequency of colds but there was some effect on how severe the cold was when the patient did contract one In the second phase, the study tried to sort out'whether the dose needed to be a large one in order to control the severity of the cold, and the finding was that it didn't need to be a large dose The same effect was obtained with a small amount. Now, in the third phase, the researchers are looking at the effect of taking very large doses at the time of sickness, instead of before the sickness sets in. In other words, there may not be the need for a daily dose above the normal requirements, just the need to treat the cold when you have it Certainly; according to Dr. Anderson, the very large doses prescribed by Dr. Pauling are not necessary. If you want to take a supplement, there is no point in taking more than about 100 milligrams a day. This should protect you even if you are not on a good diet and not getting enough fresh fruit, juice and vegetables. Usually, you can get most of your normal daily requirements from four ounces of orange juice, or a combination of grapefruit juice, enriched apple juice and leafy green vegetables. Even potatoes provide some vitamin C if you don't cook them too much Up to date research indicates that at the moment there is no sure cure for the common cold If you think you have an ascor- bic acid deficiency, eating more vitamin C enriched foods is the healthiest and the safest way of increasing your vitamin C in- take.

Mothers and kids, and some- times part in tiie Friday and Saturday morning fun for shopping for the best and freshest home grown, home-baked and home-crafted goodies. Going to market has been a family tradition in Halifax for generations, ever since the first "Green Market" was opened along waterfront streets in 1750, a year after this historic port city was founded. Faithful customers and stall holders, have followed the market through successive moves from the waterfront area to its current site hi the airy lower level of the in- dustrial northern sector of the city. Stalls are replete with crus- ty bread loaves, cakes and cookies. Fresh-churned butter and cottage cheese; thick cream, new-laid eggs, poultry and rabbits in season, reward the buyer as she wends her way through the market's kaleidoscope of sound and color.
