Although it is called “the silent killer,” there is nothing muted about the growing fear of hypertension in Western society. Largely due to their heightened consciousness, younger men and women have joined their parents and older acquaintances in confronting the precise measurement of their own mortality—in the form of blood pressure readings during medical examinations.

The article The dispute over homosexual ministers (Religion, May 28) was less than fair to the moderator, Rt. Rev. Clarke MacDonald. His decision not to take sides in the issue has a sound basis which was not covered in the article. The task force report will be the subject of an intense debate at the General Council meeting in August.

Perhaps it was to be expected that, with a huge standing army and enough fire power to vaporize, once and for all, the assorted enemies of democracy, the United States would develop a passion for the splendors of military might. We adore war movies, of course, and, whenever the opportunity arises, march down Main Street with armaments slung over our shoulders.

As Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau walked across Parliament Hill last week, the usual crowd of backward-shuffling television crews preceded him, their cameras rolling. This time, however, the cameras focused on the beaming face of the man beside Trudeau: Prime Minister-designate John Turner.

The federal Tories last week moved to recover the political momentum they lost during the three-month Liberal leadership campaign. In Ottawa Norman Atkins, the chairman of the Conservative election campaign, insisted that the Conservatives have not seriously lost ground, even though recent public opinion polls, which reported the parties virtually tied in popular support, suggested otherwise.

After more than a decade of pressure from nonnative and native women’s groups, the federal government moved belatedly last week to end a historic injustice to Indian women. Indian Affairs Minister John Munro introduced legislation that would replace a section of the 110-year-old Indian Act under which Indian women lose their status—and the right to live and die on reserves—when they marry nonIndians.

PETER MARTIN
The men who work underground call rock bursts the “miner’s nightmare.” Without warning, when geological stress exceeds the strength of shaft walls, earth and support beams come tumbling down with brutal consequences. Last week a series of massive rock bursts in Falconbridge Ltd.’s No.5 nickel mine shaft at Falconbridge, Ont., killed at least two miners—one of whom was only one metre away from anxious co-workers who were digging him out.

LEWIS HARRIS
There was a time when members of the Parti Québécois could shrug off byelection losses by pointing out that the PQ always won big when it counted—at general election time. But with the party languishing in its lowest-ever position in the polls, Pequistes found it difficult to put a brave face on last week’s defeat in three more byelections, a triple setback that stretched the party’s inglorious losing streak to 21 straight—every byelection the PQ has called since taking power in 1976.

The Cold War of hot words between East and West continued last week in the capitals of both superpowers. In Moscow, French President François Mitterrand bluntly told Soviet leader Konstantin Chernenko that it was the Kremlin’s buildup of SS-20 missiles in Europe rather than any Western desire to outmanoeuvre the Soviet Union that led to the deployment last December of U.S. cruise and Pershing II missiles.

New Zealand Prime Minister Sir Robert Muldoon has survived in office for nine years on political shrewdness and pugnacity. But last week, as Muldoon began campaigning for the July 14 election, it was clear that he will need those attributes if he is to reverse a decline in his conservative National Party’s popularity.

It is called “the silent killer.” At least one in 10 adult Canadians has high blood pressure or hypertension. It strikes senior citizens, hard-driving executives and young men and women. Most of the victims feel perfectly healthy until they are diagnosed and placed on drugs.

Until the 1920s a diagnosis of hypertension amounted to a death sentence. Doctors knew little about the condition, and no drugs existed to control it. Explained Dr. Marc Cantin, of the Clinical Research Institute of Montreal: “You could tell a patient to make out his last will and testament.”

For many people one of the most common elements of a routine physical examination—the blood pressure reading—is also the most mysterious. In fact, the life-saving procedure is relatively simple. In most cases, a doctor inflates a rubber cuff around a patient’s arm and records a reading such as “120/80.”

To Japanese Canadians, Feb. 26, 1942, is a day of infamy. That is when the Canadian government authorized the internment of about 22,000 Canadians of Japanese descent, along with the confiscation of their property. Last week, more than 42 years later, Multiculturalism Minister David Collenette issued regrets in the House of Commons on behalf of the government and announced the establishment of a $5-million fund to combat racial prejudice.

For A. Roy Megarry, publisher of the Toronto-based Globe and Mail, the quality of corporate life has improved immensely over the past two years. In the spring of 1982, Megarry not only faced a fiercely competitive Toronto newspaper market — the only one in Canada with three English-language dailies — but turmoil in the newsroom as a result of recession-induced staff cutbacks.

In a December, 1961, article for The New Yorker magazine, staff writer Alastair Reid described the scene in a Barcelona bar as local residents watched Generalissimo Francisco Franco deliver a televised speech. As quiet mutterings from the “regulars” gave way to outright anger, Reid quoted one of the locals growling at the image on the screen, “There is always room in prison, even for the fattest.”

The source of the agitation is Bill C-24, which Treasury Board President Herb Gray introduced in March to force Canada’s 336 Crown corporations and other government-funded enterprises to be more accountable for their spending.

Until the early 1970s standard television commercials ran for a full minute. Then, the rates that television networks charged for the 60-second spots became so high that manufacturers and advertising agencies lobbied the networks hard to have the time cut in half to reduce the cost.

Several recent films set in New York have tended to reinforce the image of the city that outsiders love to hate: a grim panorama of vandalized buildings and overcrowded tenements. Fortunately, there is another New York: colorful, brash and vitally human.

NICHOLAS JENNINGS
In his shameless attempt to capture the inflated physiques of Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone on screen, director Bob Clark has spawned a predictable—and largely tasteless—romantic comedy. With a lame script that has more stereotypes and flat jokes than a bachelor’s stag party, Rhinestone is built on bosoms, biceps and little else.

A sordid look at stardom
WIRED, THE SHORT LIFE AND FAST TIMES OF JOHN BELUSHI By Bob Woodward

NORMAN SNIDER
Bob Woodward’s controversial biography of the late comedian John Belushi is so revealing about North American show business that it should be circulated in high schools as a cautionary tale for starstruck youth. Woodward’s exhaustive portrayal of the drug-sapped entertainment industry has the same effect on the reader as his previous work on Richard Nixon and politics: the business has seldom looked so sordid.

The sad legacy of a liberator
LINCOLN By Gore Vidal

[no value]
In the first three volumes of his American Chronicle—Burr, 1876 and Washington, D. C. — Gore Vidal peeped through keyholes into the back rooms of bygone power. He caught the rich and famous in compromising positions and, with the keen edge of his wit, slashed the pretensions of heroes including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

In its 89-year history the Venice Biennale has established itself as one of the world’s most prestigious exhibitions of contemporary art. In the past the critics, dealers, museum directors and collectors who attend the summer-long event (June 10 to Sept. 9) have praised the work of Canadian artists, including Alex Colville, Michael Snow and Paterson Ewen.

The tenor of the nation is set by the occupant of 24 Sussex Drive. Just as the Kennedys inspired a style of wit and elegance in Washington, the early days of Pierre Elliott Trendeau dictated an experimental, LIP-granted band of long-haired transients who thumped their way across the country in search of Nirvana (three kilometres on the highway outside Swift Current).
