Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHMIDOE HERALD Saturday, AprM 'Teach children the values of maintaining a healthy body9 Children are being taught health knowledge but they're not being taught how to apply the knowledge to everyday living, the 13th annual Alberta Teachers Association health and physical education convention was told Friday in Lethbridge. Health education must have "a meaningful and deeply valued purpose to which our children can be the co-director of the bureau of research on physical activity and sport at the University of Montana said. John Dayries said youngsters must be taught the values of maintaining a healthy body so they will develop good health behavior because they enjoy being healthy. "We often create a feeling that we're trying to deprive people of things they like to do... we're always finding reasons why people should not do what they like to he said. Health educators tend to teach children that a habit such as cigarette smoking is bad for human health because it causes cancer. Instead, they should be teaching children to be proud of a healthy body so that they wouldn't want to take up unhealthy habits, Dr. Dayries said. He is "strongly convinced that we defeat our purpose" by dealing with health problems separately instead of developing good health behavior. Children must be encouraged to develop good health behavior at an early age to avoid a situation in later life in which people must decide between old unhealthy habits and good health practices. If a good health attitude isn't developed at an early age, a person will often bend whatever new health knowledge u made available to justify old unhealthy habits, he said. He also believes children who possess good health standards will not be so easily influenced by group pressure. U is group pressure, he said, that causes many children to adopt bad health habits. Many children know it is healthy to brush their teeth after eating lunch at school but don't because they fear being ridiculed by other children. Dr. Dayries said health educators must also present health knowledge in schools so it is applicable to each individual student's living situation. Providing students with a knowledge of good nutrition is a meaningless effort for some youngsters who come from homes that can not afford to provide a balanced diet every day unless the youngsters are also taught how "they can go about" obtaining a more balanced diet. The convention continues today and Sunday. 100 watch I Yellow manholes Well-meaning bylaw library open About 100 people gathered in bright spring weather Friday to wach Chief Judge L S. Turcotte c--t a purple ribbon and officially open the new Lethbridge Public Library. Chief Judge Turcotte of the Southern Alberta district court told the audience he hoped the young people found use of the new library "as much pleasure as I found, as a youth, in the original library in the two rooms at the YMCA on 10th Street and later in the library in the Gait Gardens." "Visual and sound aides are great helps in the transfer of knowledge and. in this new Remembers first Lethbridge's first library had its humble beginnings in the old Meyers Recreation Complex, back in 1906. At the rear of the block-long complex the Gait Miner's library nestled quietly next to the billiard room and the gym. Margaret McNabb, 812 6th Ave. S. was a school girl then and she helped her parents, Mr. and Mrs Robert Harvie run the first library. "It was a lovely Mrs. McNabb recalls." The miners used to come in and read their papers and the children would come to do their studies." "We lived in the building and we kept the library open all week except on Sunday when my mother used to go to church and lock up all the billiard balls. But it was always busy, someone was in there all the time." The Gait Miner's Library carried foreign language newspapers for the immigrant citizens of Lethbridge, as well as books. Mrs. McNabb can't remember how many volumes ihc library held, but she remembers having to dust the reading chairs and the big glass cases which held the books and papers. The new library, she says, looks much nicer.

"But books remain the main source of accumulated, knowledge" and wisdom -as other medium tend to be more transitory and do not conserve the material as well as Chief Judge Turcotte said. Bill Russell, chairman of the library board, described the million library as a "beautiful new present to the City of Lethbridge." A building of such quality doesn't occur by accident, he said. It is the first time in the City of Lethbridge a building has been built "with an eye not to cost but he claimed. This doesn't mean there is Italian marble inside but just "ordinary cement and bricks tastefully put he said. Mayor Andy Anderson told the audience gathered at the entrance of the library it was an historic day for the City. He said the new library would soon be joined by the new senior citizen highrise planned for the area and both would be in a park setting. There is a great desire for knowledge required by citizens to judge "the complex demands of society today." The library will serve useful in that respect and will serve cMtizens' literary needs, Mayor Anderson said. They help aerial photography of proposed expressway area hounds city council Why are the manhole covers being painted ye'Jow.' Some city residents are adding their own punchlines, but the truth of the matter is yellow manhole covers stand out in an aerial photo. And that's exactly why they've taken on their new spring color. It's part of the design work for the 1st Avenue S. expressway and 5th Avenue N._ upgrading being done for' the city by an engineering consulting firm. According to city streets engineer Gerry LeMoal, manholes are very accurately placed. Using them as reference points in aerial photos, a precise map of all the features of the area can be obtained. City residents won't, alas, be able to point out their sparkling yellow manhole covers for long though. Th-.; aerial survey's to be done shortly, and says Mr. LeMoal: "It's short-term paint and will probably be worn off in about a month." The 1st Ave. expressway will be a four- lane divided road from the Sicks Lethbridge Brewery out to Highway 3 east at 43rd Street, with a major inter-change at Mayor Magrath Drive. However, it won't get under way until 1975. and may be delayed then if the city has to expand the secondary sewage plant. The 5th Avenue N. work will be done later and can be staged over several years, with the first improvements likely to be carried out in the industrial park area. City council received a major report on both projects from the consulting firm last fall, but kept details secret because land acquisition along the right-of-ways is involved.

Rodney Dexter Smith was southbound on Highway 2 when a car coming from the opposite direction pulled out to pass a schoolbus, RCMP said.

The first annual Lethbridge Lions Club Hobby Show at the 4-H building on the exhibition grounds ends tonight at 10 p.m. According to George Marshall, one of the organizers, about 50 displays will be on exhibit. "Anything imaginable is on display stamps, coins, bottles and a number of very fine gun collections are only some examples." In addition to local collections, the Lions Club has a number of noted western collections on display. Among these is the second largest collection of Nazi artifacts in Canada, which includes the gun Hitler is said to have killed himself with. The local Fort Whoop-Up Black Powder Gun Club is displaying an old-fashioned cannon to compliment their collection of guns. The Lions Club is planning to build the hobby show up to one of the biggest in Canada. Plans for next year's show include moving into the large exhibition centre to accommodate bigger displays. City council will another run Monday at a bylaw that appears to 'nave created more confusion than anything else among the city's handicapped residents. The bylaw which has been given first reading and is up for second and third reading Monday, would establish a annual fee allowing handicapped permit holders to park at downtown meters all day. But two letters also on council's agenda Monday suggest most handicapped people in the city who are concerned about the issue don't like the fee and don't really understand for whom it is intended. Frank Merkl, president of Disabled on the .Move, sent council a petition with 715 names against the proposed bylaw and a report on a survey of disabled people carried out by the organization. The report concludes there is great confusion about parking stickers already now used by disabled people. These stickers, which sell for apparently allow a disabled person to park at a meter and not be ticketed if the time elapses on the meter before he returns. However, a person with a sticker apparently must feed the meter the same as anyone else and the stickers are not intended to allow parking all day at- one meter. The fear expressed in the report is that the new permit would superscede the old stickers. The other letter to council is from the Lethbridge branch of the Alberta Human Rights and Civil Liberties Association. The association calls the proposed bylaw a moral injustice that seems to be discriminatory to the disabled. Deputy Mayor Vaughan Hembroff, who originally suggested such a bylaw be drawn up, admits now that the bylaw will have to be looked at pretty carefully before it is passed. "I. suppose Uiis is what happens when you don't look at the entire he said, but added the whole thing has become a mountain out of a molehill issue. "There was absolutely no intention of pulling down those people who are physically he said Friday. "The intention of the bylaw was to enable those who work downtown and make as much Now is the time to consider Air Conditioning white PRE-SEASON PRICES Mill In Charlton Hill LTD. 1262- 2nd Phone 32S-33M Historical pageant seeks CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL UN.

The Association for Historical Productions, which saw its project killed in the gestation stage last year because of funding problems, will .appear before council Monday to ask for a grant to put it on this year. The association is asking for the same amount it requested from the city last year It's also seeking from the Alberta RCMP Century Celebrations Committee. Last year the group wanted to put on the show in Indian Battle Park for a 10-day run as a try-out for this year's scheduled six weeks of performances. It asked for a interest-free loan from council, but eventually got a grant instead. The money was returned when the province refused the group a Student Temporary Employment Program grant and the project was finally abandoned late in July. According to Frank Smith, publicity officer for the association, the production will run from July 8 to Aug. 16 this year if full funding is obtained.

The old Lincoln Hotel at 408 3rd Ave. S. may soon take on new life. A Calgary firm is proposing to restore the old building and convert it into a "gas-light" style restaurant and possibly an art gallery. A recommendation from city council's land sales committee that the site be sold to Robar Equities Ltd., will go to council's Monday meeting. Recommended sale price is and the committee resolution stipulates approval for the project must also be obtained from the Municipal Planning Commission. Restoration of the old hotel would fit in with the Oldman River Regional Planning Commission's recommendations for that area in its downtown Phase II redevelopment plan.
