Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LtTHBRIDGE HERALD Thurtdoy, April 5, 1973 Just Jude By JUDE TURIC Si v 'ii V'1 W ij li'l'M my growing years I had a secret de- sire 'to wear my hair like my big sister. She was in her early teeus at the time, and her swing- ing, single-curl ponytail fas- cinated me no end. I would sit and watch her endlessly twirl strands of hair around the stem of her hairdo, pin it carefully, and zander off, long skirt swish- ing with crinolines. I also envied her right to wear smart matching sweat- er sets, pretty shoes and nylons. About this time, those who unfortunately fell into my age category, were sporting ungainly, thick soled, two- tone, black and white saddle oxfords. We got stuck with hair- styles which were parted down the centre and clipped to the sides with barrettes. We wore little-girl dresses with ties at the back, ruffles on the sleeve, flowers, butter- flies, and reindeer decorating the front, and puffy sweaters over short flared skirts. 'Big sis' hairstyle went out before I ever got to the right age to wear it well, her sweater sets were dated within a few years, and long skirts were replaced by minis. Still, a flicker of that old desire remained. Lately it's being rekindled, and with fair success. Fashions haven't returned completely to what they were then, but I've managed to hit the era when sweaters are back in the limelight and long dresses are the in-thing. What troubles many of us who did grow up with saddle is the return of the styles we loathed as chil- dren. After waiting years to get out of the childish modes, fashion trends have forced us right back into the ruffles, bows and flowers. Blunt cut hairstyles neces- sitate the wearing of hated barrettes, and smock tops bring back memories of the paint tops ai kindergarten fingerpainting lessons. Worse than death has been the return of the oxford to fashion, complete with back stripe. It has been resurrected in all its clumsy glory, two- toned as ever and just as un- sightly, to plague those of us who "worked feverishly to have it buried with our pedal pushers. And now the popularity of biking just might bring the knee-high pant back into vogue as well. My personal campaign for being in style continuously at little expense has already be- gun. I plan on saving every- thing; from three-inch spike heels to platform shoes and bag pants. Maybe. 20-odd years from now. my thrift will be re- warded. ..XT L-alcnaar cJLocal The prospective Lethbridge i chapter of Sweet Adelines, Inc., j will hold an open house Wed-' nesday at 8 p-m. at the Bow- man, Art Centre.

Cost of volunteering increases By MAUREEN JAMESON" Family Editor It has become increasingly difficult to find women to fill volunteer jobs within the last few years. With a government grant arranged through Alberta's only woman cabinet minister, Helen Hunley, two Edmonton housewives visited Lethbridge yesterday as part of a study on the volunteer situation. By the end of the year, Joyce Howarth and Susan Secord plan to present a brief to the provincial govern- ment on the value to the com- munity of the woman volun- teer worker. "It's not our said Mrs. Secord. "We see our- selves as co-ordinating it. We will be crediting everybody who helped us. "We have not added Mrs. Howarth, "wheth- er there is more need or less volunteers now. We're begin- ning to fhinfc more fields are opening such as crisis centres and meals on wheels units. we ask ourselves whether the problem is the economic Mrs. Se- cord said. Economic problems "It is becoming increasing- ly costly to bs a volunteer. If a woman has young chil- dren, quite often she has to hire a babysitter. Then she's going to have to transport herself by car or bus." Depending on the hours she works, "maybe she'll have to get a meal or coffee or some- thing. "It all adds up. "There's also the clothing aspect." Mrs. Howarth added. HELEN HUNLEY provided gran "She's going to have to be more tidy going out than if she were just going to clean the floors." Mrs. Secord said "some or- ganizations are beginning to pay these expenses, but it's not consistent." Both woman agreed another major problem lay in the area of training.

(AP) Sci- entists from two research in- stitutes have reported on what they disecribe as promised treatments for cancer, in which the patients' bodies were x-acci- nated to reject the already widespread disease. Dr. Hillard Seigier of Duke Uraversity Medical Centre in Durham, N-C., and Dr. Chester Scutham of Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, said their relatively-new treatments attempt to boost patients' dis- ease-fighting systems so they can reject their tumors. are encouraged with these results, but it is still too soon to say they are cured ior Seigier told reporters. In all the cases the patients had undergone conventional treatments for malignancies but the cancers relumed and spread throughout their bodies. Scigler said he had 330 patients suffering with ex- j trernely serious melanomas, a j type of skin cancer almost im- possible to treat successfully; once it has spread. After using a four-stage iia- m u n o t h crapy regimen, -9! patients. 23 per cent, have been disease-free for at least three years, he said.

"The gist of it accord- ing to Mrs. Howarth "is that it costs a woman to be a vol- unteer, and her husband and family are tied in with the money she spends. She's not really a free agent. "We're just wondering if these expenses should he part- ly or totally by the government "to maintain the volunteer force." Mrs. Secord pointed out that "volunteers save the govern- ment an awful lot of money. If the whole area isn't looked at, it's going to cost the public much more money if volun- teers aren't there." Solutions "Women get much more highly educated as each year she asserted. "Are they going to be able to freely choose to stay home and volunteer, or because of cost, (either) not volunteer or seek paid employment? Mrs. Howarth and Mrs. Se- cord briefly outlined some of their main recommendations. They considered the hus- band of a dependent wife working as a volunteer should be entitled to some tax relief. They thought the hours of volunteer should be recorded and calculated at the mini- mum wage level, and that fi- gure added to the dependent figure on the husband's tax form. Their second recommenda- tion also involved keeping track of volunteer hours. When a specified number of hours of service has been reached, the volunteer should become eligible for the Can- Pemsicn Plan they said. It would also assist the vol- unteer, they claimed, if her young children were permitt- ed to use government day care centres, should these be implemented. "We are not suggesting all these ideas be put into ef- Mrs. Sscord explained, "but a combination would be helpful to all volunteers. Increased demand "All the pundits say there will be more and more leisure said Mrs. Howarth, "which means more volun- teers needed for the Y pro- grams" and other spare time interests and activities. "This will increase the num- ber of volunteers, providing it isn't too costly to be a volun- said Mrs. Secord. "Attitudes have changed, she added. "Husbands are saying 'well, you're doing all tffis volunteer work, why don't you go out and get a When we mention these things to volunteers, we've found it's something a lot of people have been thinking about for a long time." "We're presuming there are the same problems here as in she said. "The general concensus among the women is the feel- ing they want to hang on." Airs. Howarth concluded. "They need to volunteer, but if it gets too expensive, they'll have to stop." Simplicity., classic lines fashion forecast for spring Simplicity and classic lines are the fashion change for this spring. A Montreal designer refers to it as a fashion clean-up. "Women are buying clothes (o last, and they have confidence in classics lasting longer than dumb fr.ds." In a Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press, his view is echoed by fashion experts everywhere. In Toronto, a designer says he is delighted by Ibc return to simplicity. "This is the sort of concept fashion designers relate While is the leading color, in Halifax and otter centres. Pas- tel1; and plaids and polka dots will brighten tbe scene. No one suggests it return to uniform styles, though. An Ed- monton merchandise manager says individual choice will stiH govern Ore style of individual wardrobes. Girls are still wearing minis. Everyone is wearing pants and pant-suits. The young arc wear- ing bags to flop snd flare around their calves. The bags appear to be the last manifestation of the big interest in unisex styles. Without being frilly, women arc looking 3ikc WO7T1CT. The Edmonton expert says there is even a lot of talk about a return to dresses for daytime and s3xjrt dresses for evening, though he sees little evidence of it yet. The possibility is also mentioned by a Montreal buy- er. Fitted, gathered waistlines, even in suits, are to be popu- lar. The shirt look in dresses may have a drawstring waist. Sweater sets are selling and, for accessories, narrow belts, chunky beads and gold chains. Montreal and Regina buyers say there is some growing inter- est in hats, especially among young women. Turbans, and wide brims with tight fitting, turban crowns are coming on strong. In coats, trench and wrap- around styles are favorites in Vancouver as elsewhere, and in Sight shades including white. J-ctmil y Performers please festival judges By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer' Piano and vocal classes were In the festival limelight during the opening three-days of the 43rd annual Kiwanis music fes- tiva, now in mid-week. It has been said competitors have shown excellent work, topnotch quality and ability to carry them into the music fu- ture with style. Phyllis Schmidt, piano adju- dicator, said the general stand- ard of entrants so far "has been good, although I'd like to see twice as many competitors." "The more competitors, the more exciting it all is." Mrs. Schuldt commented on the excellent attitudes present among competing students, say- ing there appeared to be only friendly rivalry. "There's been a good choice of music, good tuning through- said Mrs. SchoLdt. Although she preferred not to mdte any comment concerning possibilities for recommenda- tions to the provincial festival, Mrs. Schuidt did admit to hav- ing some competitors in mind. "I really wouldn't like to say at this time, as there's so many more students to adjudicate and to take into she said. Mrs. Schuldt explained her criteria for judging to be all the basic mechanics cf piano style, and understanding of the style chosen, knowledge of the composer, and above all, personal involvement.

"It's their (the students) feel- ings, their emotions, that make the music live for the aud- ience and said Mrs. Schuldt. She said the artist's creati- vity comes through by proper use of his instrument and a feeling for the art. "This makes 'the festival val- uable in today's world, with aU it's conveniences and effort- less living. "The art world is the only place left where creativity still Jives; it's very important to keep it alive through contin- uous she said. Beth Douglas, choral and vocal adjudicator, commended the festival officials for their efforts in making the festival "run smoothly, without delays and without rush." She added that marks given to vocal competitors had been good so far, and that she ex- pected to pick someone to at- tend the Banff festival in May. Mrs. Douglas said that of those performances given to date, a dramatic solo by Wendy Burrows "stands out in my mind." She said overall entries had been very good, and were "a credit' to the teachers in the area." "There is lovely voice pro- duction, no harsh singing, and all of the students know exact- ly what to do with voices to get the best possible re- sults." Mrs. Douglas said that she looks for all the essentials in the competitors' presentations. "Good words, good voice pro- duction, but the most impor- tant thing is to have a singer 'give' to the audience. "You must have that con- she emphasized, "you must pass the supreme test of all arts to make the audienca feel "The technique may be there, but without the contact, the giv- ing of yourself, it doesn't make the grade."
