Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor JT'S ONE SLIGHT CHANGE in wording from fad to trend but a giant leap for women and the fashion industry. The trend of course is pants and pantsuits. When they first appeared on the scene a few years back we were deluged with pant suits - short jackets, slim pants - forecasting the literal end of them for most fashion conscious women. But women liked them. So the industry changed. Now we have long jackets to pare down that extra inch on the hip. We have wider pant legs which not only cover up heavy thighs but don't ride up when the knee is bent. Materials have changed too, to stretchy blends with body but with give. Pants have acquired a little class as well. Instead of staying fixed in the casual sports wear department pants have gone into the office in tailored stripes and herringbone tweeds and onto the dance floor in see-through lace and sparkling brocades. The office has been the surprise. The consensus has been that women will wear whatever they want on the street, in the home, and out to dance and dine. But when they enter the office they're as bound by rules of dress as much as the poor characters were in the grey flannel suit. * * * Whether the design has been the convincing point or whether it's just another sign of the times, but larger business offices and companies have been facing up very well to women in the office in pants. Even the normally staid banks are accepting what appears to be the modern way to dress. Royal Trust Co. earlier this spring allowed its girls in the Toronto downtown savings department to wear pant outfits for a day. Toronto - Dominion Centre office tried it too but didn't expect to be trendsetters in doing so. Locally the TD banks are taking serious looks at a six-piece outfit for female staffers which includes pants. As yet however, there's no indication that pants will be part of the daytime schedule. Many of the larger companies such as Ontario Hydro and Bell Canada have left it up to the supervisor and the suit. Imperial Oil Ltd. and other large companies are leaving it up to the continuation of the trend, and how women look in it. Perhaps if the pants fit, they won't be worn. To squelch another nefarious rumor, the RCMP ball is most definitely still on. It's scheduled for May 1 at the El Rancho Convention Centre with the Brass Corporation providing the music. Special guests in attendance will include S. M. Hodgson, Commissioner of the Northwest Territories, and Chief Supt. V. M. Seppala, Commanding Officer of the RCMP for Alberta. *  * Did you hear about the cow that ate a new kind of grass. The milk she lets down builds you up while it turns you on. Local Needs Predicted Drop-In Centre For Youth Proposed By CHRIS PUHL Herald Staff Writer A brief win be presented to Lethbridge city coundT Monday by a drop - in centre committee, outlining urgent local needs. Student jobs are scarce and a high percentage of youth will be hitch - hiking across the country. Many will not have money for food or accommodations. Also with transient youth come other problems such as drugs, medical and legal aid, and professional counselling. Although the Department of Social Development in Lethbridge, which is legally responsible for transient youth has proposed to provide short term board for those transients over 18 years, the committee thinks there must be more of am answer than that. The committee plains to start a teen oriented, transient youth hostel in Lethbridge with support from local professionals and organizations. It will be similar to m a n y others being set up in cities across Canada. Other aspects of the drop-in hostel planned are: information centre on recreations facilities in city, transient youth g u i de and professional aid; coffee shop and meeting place; youth council; quiet study, reading and discussion areas and a youth council office and meeting place for sponsoring organizations.

DROWNED THEMSELVES In 436 BC, thousands of Romans threw themselves into the Tiber River because of famine. ley, of Lethbridge indicated that of 1,587 youths questioned about the need of a youth-drop-in centre for Lethbridge, 1,566 thought there was a need. The Canadian Welfare Council has released a report called Transient Youth '69. A sample of 119 transient youth from all across Canada were interviewed during summer of 1969. "Families of youth interviewed were- significantly larger than average Canadian families." "Youth transiency would appear to be a phenomenon associated primarily with middle and upper income families with no significant differences as between male and female youth," also was stated in the report. Last year transient youth were most prevalent along main highways but this year because of crowded conditions youth win be moving onto secondary highways. Local YW provided accommodations for many transient girls seeking lodging during the past year, the Salvation Army has boarded many youth and numerous teens passing through the city have phoned AID (Advice, Mormation and Direction) for information and refer-als. Question of a building for the local transient youth hostel is being seriously considered. The Lettoibridge Curling Club executive is concerned but afraid the hostel would turn into a "fajppie hang out". The club will consider letting its facilities be used, if city council recommends so. Rev. Brian Jones indicated the McMUop Church gym and basement might be available. A billiard bal, warehouse, deserted school by Hardieville, an empty supply centre are all being considered. The committee has agreed that the ideal location would be an autonomous one which many organizations in the city would finance. If there is no other possibility, institutional f acil i t i e s must be seriously considered. Members of the committee expressed concern over the question of police harassment both to persons using the hostel and professionals offer i n g service. The Canadian Welfare Council report stated that of the s a m pi e interviewed, 47 per cent thought police problems were the main hassle. Accommodation problems were listed first by 36 per cent and food by 29 per cent. Chief Carpenter has expressed "enthusiasm" about the transient youth problem," said Ken Spence, "Although uo definite police opinion' has been stated concerning police attitudes towards a drop-in centre."

"Take the cost of food in a restaurant and subtract from it the cost of buying and operating kitchen equipment and the cost of food," he said. "You'll find the difference leaves about 10 cents an hour for Mom's time over a hot stove and in crowded supermarkets." An extension economist for the Columbia, Mo., university, Welch said the trend toward eating out in North America was a healthy one. About 1900, he said, one in 20 meals was eaten in a mass food service establishment. Now the figure is one of three meals.
