Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta --------Thuncltiy, Icptumbor 9, 1971 THE IETHBRIDCE HERAID S Effectiveness of medical campaigns questioned TORONTO (CP) Cam- paigns launched in Che 1960s urging persons to get frequent medical check-ups Tor lung and lieart conditions don't seem to have reduced the number of deaths horn such ailments, ac- cording to some medical author- ities. Some specialists are cot only questioning Ihe effectiveness of such campaigns, but go as far as to say medical examinations may actually cause illness by encouraging persons to worry excessively about their health. Dr. David Sackett, head of McMaster University medical school epidemiology depart- ment, told of doubts expressed to the World Health Organiza- tion meeting in British Colum- bia concerning a B. C. govern- ment campaign to reduce cervi- cal cancer deaths among wo- men. It involved a mass screen- ing program. "Investigation has failed to reveal any difference in the mortality rale between British Columbia and the rest of the provinces." he said in an inter- view. The University of Pennsyl- vania undertook a follow-up study of persons who for years had medical examinations for heart disease.

But it may not be alone fo long. Two giant Soviet space PM silent on economy questions OTTAWA (CP) Prime Min ister Trudeau remained silen for Ihe most part Wednesday ii response to a series of Com rnons questions on the economy Opposition Leader Rober Stanfield asked him whether the government had any special measures to propose to ease the prospect of unemployment in Canada lliis winter. Mr. TYudeau said not at this time. Mr. Slanficld had asked es- sentially the same thing during question period Tuesday, anc the prime minister told him to hold his breath until Finance Minister E. J. Benson had spo- ken later in Hie day on the gov- ernment's bill to aid industry hurt by the 10 per cent U.S. im- port surcharge. Mr. Stanfield said he had duti- fully held his breath until it was knocked out of him by Mr. Ben- son's "complacent" speech on Uie economy. David MacDonald mont) followed a series of ques- tions concerning federal-provin- cial consultation or. response to Uie surtax by asking wlrclher Canada has proposed that there be consultation between Canada and the U.S. before any Ameri- can economic decision dial would have a drastic impact on the Canadian economy. Mr. Trudeau said he didn't see how Mr MacDonald could ask about Canadian-U.S. rela- tions in a supplementary ques- tion to federal-provincial rela- tions, and sat down without an- swering the question. Ukraiiiiaii arts feslival wins praise THUNDER BAY (CP) The first Canadian Ukrainian festi- val of the arts has enabled Ca- nadian Ukrainians to find out more about themselves, a Cal- gnry art specialist said after the week-long gathering ended lierc. Nadia Korpus, one of more than 400 Ukrainians from across the country who were at Ijkehcad University for va- rious workshops, displays and art exhibits, said "it is surpris- ing what we hiue accomplished the first tin'.c out seeing so many artiste of Ukrainian ori- gin assembled in one place at one time." She added: "Thai in itself is an accomplishment." The first festival, winch nlso included lectures and di.srus- sinns on Ukrainian ciillure, wns financed through lire fed- eral government's Opportuni- ties for Youth Program. Ircneiix Zuk of Ualfimoro, Md., a former Monlrealer, said: "I'm finding oul more about our cullurc and Iho great strides it is making across lire cnunlj-y I am somewhat slu'ps, Mars II and Mars III each weighing more than four tons compared with Mariner's pounds, are bound for the same destination, and U.S. space agency scientists are bet- ling that the Russian shots will land on Mars while Marine is still observing it from several hundred miles spectac- ular feat of space one-upman- ship by the Russians. WILL SEEK INFO However, tbe National Aero- nautic and Space Administra- tion, aware of Ihe new era o( Soviet-American co-operation in space, will seek information on the precise landing spots to help Ihe Americans make some cal- culations of their own. The single craft will map about 70 per cent of Mars sur- face with two television cam- eras, and radio the pictures back to earth together wiUi data on the atmospheric and surface conditions. NASA scientists studying data returned by previous Mariner spacecraft which flew by Lhe planet have concluded that al- Ihough ils environment appears harsh, Marsh could support some form of life.

William Richards, associate irector of Outward Bound, said le program's trustees would ppoint a hoard to review the ase.

What turns you on? Tip Top asks six ladies what they like- and what they don't like their men to wear buy nothing but knits. He's got a couple of pairs of pants and three or four knit shirts. They're so easy to look after. Just wash them and hang them up. Terrific." "There's so many great colours... I bought my husband one of those wildly pat- terned shirts. It took him a month to work up his nerve to wear it. Then he bought two more of them." "Putting it together... It really takes a lot of taste to put the right things together. Some guys can ruin a great pair of pants by wear- ing a narrow, little old belt." "Sweaters. I just love sweaters. V-necks, turtle-necks those skinny new vests. I love them all. There's nothing nicer than a shirt collar showing over the top of a sweater." "Not that super-neat look. I like rugged looking things... that look like he really enjoys wear- ing them sort of 'lived-in'. Like denim jackets and those faded jeans." "I like things with texture. Corduroy jeans have always been my fav- ourites. And things like suede or leather coats. Even some of the new fur coats are OK on the right man."
