Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 14, 1970 Tunis9 Bitter Orange Trees Supply Perfume Essence TUNIS (Reuters) The deli- cate blooms of bitter orange trees cultivated here supply the essence for one of Europe's most popular perfumes. An important source of the essence which goes into eau ile cologne, flower petals from the 30.000 sweet-smelling trees are harvested with infinite care by Tunisian gardeners. It must be done after night- fall, and in fine weather. The flower is so fragile that it can stand neither heat nor rough handling. In order to yield good-quality here as "nero- flower must be fully opened, and the harvest must not be adulterated by buds of the bitter orange flower, still less by flowers from such re- lated trees as oranges, lemons and limes. The richest growing area Is the peninsula of Cap Eon, 50 miles east of Tunis, whose beau- tiful beach resorts attract many tourists. Rut even within this area, the growers recognize distinct "vin- tages." Each distiller of the precious essence has his own se- cret recipe for producing the right blend of perfume, using (lowers from different districts. This year the floral harvest has yielded only 500 tons, well below the annual average of 700 tons. Total production of neroli tin's year was around 880 pounds. This compares unfavorably with a "good vintage" year like 1966, when output topped pounds. LABOK COST HIGH The entire production is shipped, at a price of arounc 2.850 francs a kilo a pound) to the perfume houses o Grasse, the world "capital" o the perfume industry just inlanc from the popular Mediterranean beaches of Cote d'Azur in France. The cultivation of the bitter orange for its flowers has been virtually ruled put in Europe be- cause of the high cost of labor required to pick the delicate blooms. In addition, the per- fume market has tended to be sejisitive to economic changes. As a result, Tunisia now re- gards itself as the leading world producer. Campus Corner By LINDA RASMUSSEN TN "RECENT months, there has been a growing con- cern voiced about the non-med- ical use of drugs. The misuse of drugs continues to increase despite antkinig literature, heavy jail sentences and in- creased public concern. The biggest problem hi deal- ing with this situation seems to be a basic misunderstanding and lack of information by ev- eryone involved. Parents are generally com- pletely misinformed and taken in by the horror stories about drugs they read in most ma- gazines. They rarely can look beyond their child's involve- ment with drugs to ask the question "why." Their well-in- tentioned but misguided at- tempts to help usually make the problem worse. The drug user, tends to be more informed than the par- ent (and thus unlikely to be- lieve anything the parent says about However, he usu- ally does not have a full under- standing of all the facts about drugs since he tends to dismiss any anti-drug propaganda and with it any good information it might present. He relies on unreliable "street info" and the younger users in particular tend to pop anything into then; mouths to get high. The police and courts still in- sist on relying on the archaic idea of "cleaning up the drags" and making examples of those caught. Their harsh actions, cri- ticized by the LeDain Commis- sion, are alienating and polar- izing the youth against the so- ciety that the courts represent. The public in general react to the scare tactics of the anti- drug propaganda rather than attempting a rational analysis of just why this problem exists. People just do not know what Is happening and they are frightened. The situation in Lethbridge is bad and unless a concerted and well reasoned effort is made right now the incidence and seriousness of drug prob- lems is going to increase mark- edly. At Odyssey House, the youth hostel, a program has been initiated in an attempt to solve the problem of misinformation. A library of reliable informa- tion is being set up and hope- fully people will be trained to deal with the drug situation.

LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. PARAMOUNT THEATRE 8LDG., IETHBRIDGE NAME ADDRESS Youth Aid Centre Seeks Permanent Winter Program By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer A weekly medical clinic, drug information centre anc workshops are included in ten- tative plans to involve local youth in Odyssey House, the city's youth aid centre. Currently the house is being used solely as a transient hos- tel due to zoning bylaws. Government and city funds which have been made avail- able for the hostel, expire on Oct. 15. If .additional financing is to he obtained, there must be sufficient need for the cen- tre to operate as a year-round hostel and drop-in centre for local youth. The approximately 30 youths present at a public meeting held recently in the house, agreed that the biggest prob- lem locally was in getting a large cross section of the city's youths to use the facilities. The age group aimed .it is 16 to 25 years. Organized programing could be used to interest indi- viduals and give them the op- portunity to meet other people already involved in the centre. Involvement is the theme for future developments between co-directors, Brian Brindley and Brian Shaw, staffers, Jay Kee, Jeremy Etherington and Linda Rasmussen, and all people interested in seeing the project get off the ground. The medical clinic would in- clude information, treatment, referrals and education on top- ics such as birth control, ven- ereal disease and abortion. Also planned to supplement this clinic is a library of books and pamphlets available to anyone, especially teachers. Top priority will be given in setting up the drug informa- tion centre with crisis interven- tion, information, seminars and lectures in the schools. Many people experienced with drugs said a vast number of teens buy or take drugs without knowing what they are getting into. Other portions of the future programming include: tutoring YWCA CONSULTANT Adrian Berry, Calgary alder- man and redevelopment offi- cer for the Calgary YW has been hired by the Lethbridge YWCA for a "small fee" to act in an advisory capacity, reported Jean Findlay, local YW president. His duties have not been specifically de- fined as yet.

Jehanc Benoit (Greywood Publishing Ltd., Winnipeg Modern housekeeping may have changed greatly in the last few years but for many brides the way to a man's heart is still via a dependable cookbook. She needs one which will remind her to clean the chicken before put- ting that glorious glaze on it, and support her through to the carving. Mine. Jehane Benoit has taken the essentials of good cuisine minus the rigmarole and created an encyclopedia of useful and delicious recipes. This noted writer, research- er, and broadcaster of 20 years experience has com- piled an anthology of Cana- dian recipes which include specialities from Maritime fiddleheads to West Coast salmon. Canadians will appreciate the uniqueness of this recipe book for its blending of Eng- lish and French cuisine. Her French-Canadian background does not overwhelm the read- er who is delighted to know that Mme. Benoit's Fois Gras, crepes, tortieres and cream of pea soup St. Ger- main are her own family favorites and can therefore be made with some assur- ance of success. Mme. Benoit's skill rests not only with her pots and pans but in explaining each step of preparation in clear, simple terms. Each section contains how- to's of informative instruc- tion not only for the novice but the experienced chef as well. Cookbooks abound in color- ful, often exotic, and usually cholesterol loaded menus. Mme. Benoit has come up with the unusual and insert- ed a section for the health- conscious housewife. "The tempo of our modern life causes many to be over- tired arid over-worked. We too often forget the influ- ences of our active life on our health" says Mme, Benoit. Her wheat germ cocktail, wheat wafers and barley croquettes will find favor with prairie dwellers who are known to throw a handful of whole grains into whatever pot is handy on the stove. Her protein breakfast sug- gestion of one apple, one slice cooked ham, one slice Swiss or Cheddar cheese, and no bread isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it fills dietary needs, is easy to prepare and sounds different enough to meet with success. Mme. Benoit's philosophy about the art of cooking seems to be that with fine food, both the preparation and the enjoyment of it are insepar- able. In her own words, "Have fun when you cook." -M. A. GOLDEN WEDDING Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Bartlett of Picture Butte and Clares- holm will be celebrating their golden wedding August 15 at the Park Plaza Motor Hotel in Lethbridge with an open house from 8-12 p.m. Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett have eight children, 24 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Stalin's Daughter Confused By Bra-Burning Feminists By WHITNEY GOULD SPRING GREEN, Wis. (AP) "What is this bra-burning asks a bewildered Mrs. William Wesley Peters. :I don't understand this. I am a conservative, a convinced con- servative. I think to be a wife is job to have. I don't agree with women that it's not enough." Relaxed and tanned Svetlana AUiluyeva, daughter of Joseph Stalin, has begun to settle with- out fuss into what she calls "just the usual life of a house- wife" in rural Spring Green. Wisconsin, and the lush, roll- 3ig countryside around her new lome reminds her of central Russia, she says. The quiet, sturdy-looking woman who walked into the Jnited States embassy in New Delhi, more than three years ago and asked for asylum in the United States now is the wife of William Wesley Peters, chief architect of the Frank Lloyd iVright Foundation. They were manned April 7, just days after they met at "aliesin West, the Wright Foun- dation's winter headquarters near Fhoenix, Ariz. She dad been invited by Wright's widow, Olgivanna, and his daughter, lovanna, who were intrigued by Svetlana's book, Twenty Letters to a Friend, an account of her life in Russia under her father. It was written in 1963 and published after she came to the U.S. in 1967. "i had been invited just for a two-week she says, al- most apoiogstically, "but things worked out differently." Svetlana's second book. Only One Year, told of her decision to flee Russia, her trip to the United States and her life in Princeton, N.J. She insists she has no plans to do any more writing. "Two books were enough she says. "I am planning to do nothing except be a good wife to my husband. "That is a full-time job." She ventured into the village of Spring Green for the first time last week, to do some shopping, and was unrecog- nized. She could probably pass for a market-going housewife al- most anywhere. When she is asked about her homeland and if she would like to return, her deep-set, blue eyes cloud over and she says firmly, "No, is something I don't know. My home is here now. I would like to have my friends and children come to visit me here, of course, but at present I know there is no chance for that." NURSES Enjoy your career more in Provo, Utah.
