Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thuiidtiy, August 5, 1971 Rides easier on Prairies By DAVE TIIO.MAS MOOSE JAW, Snsk (IT) The rides jire longer eas- ier on the Prairies for this year's crop of summer tran- sient pushing westward. They're queued up on the outskirts of Winnipeg, Retina and Moose Jaw every morn- ing, just as in Ontario. But the difference here Ls (hat by noon nearly everybody has a lift. Few h i I c h c r s are stranded at nightfall. Farm pick-up Irucks are common transport for the transients. Riders occupy their time flashing peace signs at passing cars. When the kids hit the cities, they seem to disappear. Street begging has not become as common in Rcgina as it is in most Eastern cities. Transient panhandlers are easily out- numbered by dclerly rclipious crusaders passing out litera- ture mapping the road to sal- vation. Saskatchewan residents are not disappointed that the young travellers show little in- terest in louring their urban centres The sooner they move on the heller Some ivould prefer Ihey didn't stop at all. A move to establish a city-nm hostel in Regina was quashed when irate residents presented a pe- tition of protest to ibe munici pal council. SOCIAL EFFECT Tfvnsienls now aic accom- modated by Ilii?

A school teacher picking up transients en route In Palsary was "frightened" by the lack of ambiiton lu? said he sensed among [lie kids.

The same uneasiness is ex- pressed by tlic operator o[ Moose Jaw's hostel. Cool Aid. John van der Raatdt. him- self by no means establish- ment-straight in appearance, spent a lot time thumbing across Canada before il be- came popular. REAL PROBLE.V But. he says, he worked he ran out of money and never relied on government handouts in Ihe iOrm of food and lodging. He says many transients slaying at the hostel have come lo e.xpect Ihe service as a right and refuse lo share in daily maintenance. "They figure we're here to scrvs them and that's really bad." lloslol statislics show that in one week only 17 of the 113 guest said they could pay Ills 50-cent charge for one night. Mr. van der Raatdt says the moneyless and aimless wan- dering yoi'th are a real prob- lem because a dependent atti- lude is developing among llie.n. But withdrawing the free facilities would not be a solution. "You can't say close down the hostels. Hostels aren't the are." His wife. Linda, sympa- thizes with Ihe young people on the move.

"I got fed up with the whole teachers tell- ing me stupid things to do At 16, she left home and her Grade 11 class vith another restless female student and headed for Vancouver's Gas- town. Eventually she made a firm decision to reject the transient life and was able to return to school successfully hack home. The individual stories are surprisingly similar. Behind Ihe traveller are strict par- enLs and frustrating school regulations which made the free wandering life attractive. Government hostels and the ease of registering on the wel- fare rolls make a lack of money no deterrent.
