JZ2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD TUriday, April 19, Just Jude By JUDE TURIC After being told that girls cannot play field hockey, I took it upon myself to volun- teer a girls' team against a guys' team and whip them at own game. I remained steadfast to my claim amidst some pretty loud laughter, waited for the nasty remarks to ebb and asked the fellas to pick a date for the encounter. While bickering over who gets what player, on what field and how many, final- ly came to a mutual agree- ment. The showdown will be two weeks hence, on a field of the girls' choice, and will be played according to regular rules. The boys were gallant enough to allow the females a few minor concessions. Such as, they will have a goalie, and only four players; while the girls will be allow- ed six players, a permanent goalie and the option of switching in fresh players. It would be entirely up to the girls whom they chose to make up their team, but with a final warning, the boys made it clear this would be f BO pansy game. j Solemnly, all agreed on a j ART STUDIO 'ON FIPTM AVENUE ARTISTIC PICTURE FRAMINC .ART GAUEftY OPEN DAILY SATURDAY 10-5 710-5 AVE S LETHBftlQCE-AtTA good clean fight, with a rest break at half-time, and a re- stated promise of them beat- ing us. Taking the task to heart, I set about rounding up a team, preferably one that had at least one girl who knew what a hockey stick was, how to hold it and what was to be done once the goal nets were set up. Initially, I expected to get incredulous looks, definite 'no-ways', and the occasional big fat grin. My first recruit declined the invitation because, she said, "I get carried away and play too rough." She cited the example of a long-ago game where she bounced a hip at a fellow, sent him into a series of somersaults, and placed him on the side lines for the rest of the day. My second recruit was pleased with the prospect of a rousing game of field hoc- key, but balk3d when she was informed that no field equip- ment would be distributed. Another lass, a tomboy by nature, accepted happily, say- ing she was a seasoned vet- eran, what with four older brothers at home who had ini- tiated her into the world of masculine sports at a tender age. My one success was fol- lowed by numerous refusals, some of "which simultaneously offered their condolences. Although disheartened at the thought of facing four burly boys, with a handful of naive field lilies, the game will go on, as scheduled weather permitting. With luck, the fellas might relent and be more gentle with their new opposition; and perhaps we'll escape fair- ly unscathed and generally together.

Flowers of Hope campaign will help mentally retarded By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Hope is the key word in the annual Flowers of Hope Cam- paign for the mentally retard- ed. As in past years, the Leth- bridge Association for the Men- tally Retarded will conduct a week of activities, highlighted by the one-day residential blitz, May 16. May 13 through to the 19 has been set aside as National Men- tal Retardation Week to bring to the attention of all commun- ities the needs of those who are retarded. Funds raised will be used to provide further facilities and programs for the retarded young people in Lethbridge and surrounding area. Joyce Dunlop, member of the association, explained that on the list of immediate needs are "at least two residences, one in town and one at Sunrise Ranch." She added that the objective for this year's blitz has been set at and all would be used to support ongoing pro- grams as well as initiate new ones. A kick-off parade will be held May 12, with the Lethbridge Collegiate Band and the Aflne Campbell Singers participat- ing, as well as an official pro- clamation of the week in the city. Open house will be held at the Sunrise Ranch at Coaldale, which presently houses 12 train- ees. Volunteer canvassers will conduct the door-to-door cam- paign offering packages of seeds which contain the flow- ers of hope. "Those homes canvassed without a reply will have a seed packet and contribution envelope placed in the mail said Mrs. Dunlop. "In this way, every house- will be reached."

Malcolm Jeffreys, recently appointed executrve director of the association, said there was no reason the mentally re- tarded person cannot function in society. He commented on normali- zation programs in existence at other centres, and said it was "about time this are got go- ing on similiar development programs." "The objective is to normal- ize, rather than institutionalize the retarded to move them up the scale until they can function adequately in the com- munity." Canvassers are still urgently needed and persons willing to spend two to three hours help- ing the cause of the mentally retarded are asked to call 328- 6987.
