Abstract
Municipal swimming pools arose as a technological fix for an urban public health and recreation crisis in Hamilton when its bay became a polluted sink for residential and industrial wastes. Until World War II, city leaders and medical authorities believed that they could identify, delineate, and construct safe natural swimming areas along the bay's shore, supplemented by a few public artificial swimming pools. After the war, the pollution situation worsened. For those who couldn't travel to cleaner lakeshores elsewhere, local authorities created swimming pools, thus abandoning the natural waters of the bay to the "constructive power of the profit motive".

Abstract
The phenomenon of acculturation stress is described with particular reference to the subsequent development of the transitional role conflict. The adolescent and young adult male Eskimo is especially susceptible to the anxiety generated by the process of acculturation and it is the interaction of this external stress with the bio-psychosocial characteristics of the individual within his ecological group, that may lead to an increased incidence of mental disorder. The clinical picture that develops will depend on the complex interaction of this psychosocial stressor and the level of ego development and its accompanying defence and coping strategies. We see how the development of manifest psychopathology in two young Inuit males was intimately associated with the stresses of acculturation acting upon personalities characterized by a low self-esteem and negative self-image, feelings of emasculation and a state of anomie. Coping and defensive strategies exhibited both similarities (drugs, alcohol, withdrawal, actin out) and differences (psychosis versus dissociation). The value of modified supportive therapy with continuity of care aimed at increasing self-esteem through sublimation, identification, reduction of dependency and encouragement of growth and autonomy is described, as are measures aimed at primary prevention.

Abstract
Although no cases of AIDS have yet been reported amongst the 10,000 Cree of Eastern James Bay, certain characteristics of the population signal that it is at risk for developing a "pattern II" AIDS epidemic. The AIDS Awareness Program for the region is community based, with each local team of AIDS educators planning, managing, and evaluating prevention activities according to their assessment of the needs of the community. This decentralized approach ensures that interventions are culturally appropriate and relevant, and is empowering to the community.

Abstract
A vital component of the health care system in the state is the Alaska Area Native Health Service (AANHS). As one of eleven area offices within the Indian health Service, the AANHS delivers health services to Native Alaskans through Native and tribally operated health corporations in eight Alaska area service units and three service areas. This publication describes the local conditions, health care delivery system, health corporations, and health statistics in each service unit or area.
