Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETH0RIDQI April 10, Herald Family Living unit confinement reduces prison escapes M O T R E A L i C P the old we were treating prisoners like children and expecting to turn out adults Guv Lemire, director of Cowansville penitentiary, says his institution is one of lour in Canada trying to erase the of prisons through a Living Unit program in which LU personnel, distinct from secuntv officers, and rec- reation develop personal relationships with prisoners Prisoners are being given responsibility, "perhaps for ihe first time in their lives." and social experiences that they may never have encountered before. Mr Lemire said in an interview Last spring, before the changeover, the medium- security institution about 40 miles southeast of Montreal was a sieve; within two weeks. 13 prisoners escaped. Twenty-eight had escaped earlier that year. Since the introduction of LU. no one has left Cowansville. except under escort It is also true that at the same time, physical changes at Cowansville. ordered by Solicitor-General Warren because of the rash of escapes, has made escape more difficult. Installation of wire along (he prison perimeter, extra lighting, temporary shelters for armed guards and the replacement of the old dirt path with a road do not invite escapes But through group dynamics and the development of per- Calendar The Women of the Moose will hold a regular meeting tonight at 8 with a special speaker Members are asked to attend.

Mr. Lemire said, some of the tensions usually found within prison walls are removed. Each of the four 100-bed residential pavilions at Cowansville is staffed by 12 LU officers. When officers held their first meetings with small groups of prisoners, communication was minimal, said Mr Lemire. But soon after the first meetings, which centred on the subject of food, prisoners began to discuss both personal and group expectations of the program. Mr Lemire said. At Cowansville. former prison guards chosen for the LL' program were instructed in human relations and group dynamics. Half the LU staff are junior college graduates of social sripncp courses and of two-month orientation programs in security The mixing of the two distinct types of staff, with complementary experiences, is the mam reason for the success of the LU program. Mr Lemire estimated that it may take five years before the new system is working properly But. he added, it is change 'enough for a decade" when compared with the former "centralized, military" struc- ture of the prison Mr. Lemire. who has been Cowansville director for a year is not sure why that institute was chosen for the LU program. He said it may be because the relatively new prison, opened in 1965, has physical facilities designed lor good criminals" or those whose chances of rehabilitation seem greatest Maria Rossetti likes old-fashioned cooking. I Spaghetti is her specialty I Slow cooking captures flavor Today's quickie dinners have lost that intangible something captured only by long, slow bfaising, simmering sauces and six-hour-steamed puddings. At least that's the .opinion of Maria Rossetti 40-year member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the F 0 E whose slow-cooked spaghetti dinners have distinguished her among her peers. I'm actually a pot-watcher." Marie admits (something practically unheard of in today's quick-meal "I like to watch my spaghetti cook slowly, over low hear. I check it regularly until it reaches the right consistency Then I know it's just right She serves roast turkey, chicken or spare ribs with her succulent dish, but it's her gravy, plumped with mashed potatoes. parmesan cheese and plenty of tomato paste (the more the better, she says) that people rave about It's slow cooked too "It just can't be made in a hurry and turn out well." she insists. "It's the slow cooking quality that brings out the flavor." 3 Maria Rossetti should know She's been specializing in this Italian dish ever since she arrived in Lethbridge from her native Udine. Italy. 53 years ago. She claims she has made thousands of spaghetti servings, including as many as 500 at once when she prepared this specialty for St. Basil jf: Church suppers, the Legionnaires and the Eagles and everyone came back for seconds LAST FEW DAYS!

Information is what she provides in her classes for buying clubs and now in a new book entitled Supermarket Counter Power From four basic food fruits and vegetables, dairy products, breads and cereals she tells how to pick and choose to save money and nutrition, naming brands. "I took this bag of potato chips to my class." she said in an interview "told them it had recently risen in price from 29 cents to 33 cents. They didn't think that was so terrible. But it also went from 3 ounces down to only three ounces, and that makes people angry." She also told about crackers that appear to he half the size of a one-pound box, but because the box is shorter, are only seven ounces in weight. She explains to consumers about deceitful packaging. Mrs. Shell has worked in almost every area of the food consumer industry, most recently with Bess Meyerson in the New York state department of consumer affairs as director of consumer services. CUT COSTS Cut food costs by using evaporated milk in cooking. In her classes, Mrs. Shell teaches methods of baking and preparing foods as well as nutrition and how to buy. She said more and more young men are attending the classes and are "most enthusiastic." Consumers. Mrs Shell added, must take charge. They must modify or change what isn't good. "A lot of consumerism is just good sense." she said. "Food should be more than something you stuff your face with. It should nourish your family and your life-style as well as provide basic good health." Student art on display The spring show and sale organized by the University of Lethbridge art students had its most successful year ever, says U of L art department chairman Charles Crane.

The show is open from 9 am. to p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. Prairie province initiates dental care program REG1NA (CP) When many Saskatchewan six-year- olds start school in September, they will find not only teachers but also dental nurses waiting to welcome them The dental nurses the first of whom graduate this be the backbone of a provincial dental care program that officials describe as the first of its kind in North America. Under the program, six- year-olds will get free dental care this fall and over the next five years the program wjll be expanded to include all children from age 3 to 12. The denatl nurses are virtually essential because of the province's shortage of dentists and because of the cost of training dentists. It takes six years and about to train a dentist, while a dental nurse is trained in two years for and can perform many of the simpler dental tasks "I think the first dental nurses in the field will be a little shaky." said Bev Sail of Milestone. Sask a first-year student in the program, "but sfter they've done it for a while they'll be competent Delores Mantai of-Regma, who has been taking her children to the training clinic to have work done by senior students, believes the dental nurses will be competent from the start. "I've been up in the clinic and to the dentist and I can't see any Mrs. Mantai said. "I have never seen a tear shed by any of the children during the times I've been at the clinic." There are 60 nurses in first- year training and 36 finishing the final year of the course. When they graduate, they will find themselves working for a health department at salaries of something over a month and travelling from school to school with their equipment. They will be trained to diagnose decay in baby teeth, drill and fill simple cavities, give local anesthetic, treat exposed nerves in teeth, clean teeth and extract baby teeth For the first three months, a full-trained dentist will hover at their shoulder and after that the closeness of supervision will be at the dentist's discretion, Besides direct treatment, the dental nurses will run educational programs to teach children good dental care habits Dr. Grahame Keenan, director of the training program, said. "Dental nursing is taught in 21 countries around the world, but the Saskatchewan program is unique in its emphasis on prevention and communicative skills and is probably the most modern dental nursing program anywhere Judging bv Mrs Mantai's experience, the dental nurses may be extremely effective in their educational efforts "The nurse told my son not to chew bubble gum because it would loosen his fillings and he quit chewing bubble gum Dentists in the province have expressed little opposition to the dental nurse program, but they have some criticisms "It's so far short of what it could be." said Dr T. E. Donovan, vice-president of the College of, Dental Surgeons of Saskatchewan He would like to see more dental assistants and dental hygienists being trained as well as the dental nurses. More important, he would like to see universal fluondalion of water which he said is the best preventive step that could be taken Another complaint was that parents who wish their children to go to dentists rather than dental nurses will have to pay the dentist's lees in paving lor Ihe dental nurse program through taxes. belt defeats pantyhose PARIS (AP) The garter belt is back Returning to France are the days of one female knee gently crossing another, an inch or less of flesh flashing al a stocking top After a decade of domination, the pantyhose conspiracy is trembling in its socks. Stockings and garter belt sales are up 20-per-cent in Paris this spring, especially among women aged 17 to 25. industry figures show. And a small boom is expected by iall "It's fine said Antome Blondin. a popular French writer who has campaigned against pantyhose "The first thing I give a woman 1 love is a garter belt "There's nothing more desert-like than pantyhose no nobody visits a desert. The garter belt on the other hand is like a James Bond weapon The thigh encircled, the arrow of the garter, the little bit of promised land between the panty and the stocking It's as beautiful a design as Ihe Parthenon The origin of the fashion is apparently the nostalgia wave ol the 1930's and movies in which actresses such as Jacqueline Bisse't looked nicely evil in stockings and a garter gelt "It's obviously said Jacques Matalon. a spokesman for the stocking industry. "Why describe it any other way'' "The production of garter belts was almost stopped when the kids began asking for them The industry has geared up it doesn't represent much of an and now we'll see It may not last more than a season or two. Although men will encourage their women to wear them, we've found out that mostly women don't give a damn about what men think in terms fashion. So this is something that young women like." Matalon said the fashion also seems to be making m-roads in Britain. Blondin. a serious writer who had a page one commentary 'on the French presidential election in the newspaper le Figaro on Friday, is completing a book on the garter belt MOOSE LODGE WED.
