Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Auguil 14, 1971- If You Ask Me.. By Margaret Luckhursl Society should give llic middle-aged a break. We have been preoccupied for years now in seeing to it that our youth receive advantages which permits (hem opportunities for education, travel nnd leisure which we vho are (heir parents never received. At the other end of life's span are doing more and more io make the sunset years of our elderly more comfortable and pleasant. Nobody would deny that these are enlightened improvements on the generations heretofore, when the youth were ignored and the aged were left to moulder in work- houses. But about Ihe people in between? They de- serve some consideration too. Very often today when people reach middle life their burden increases, rather than diminishes. Not only do they frequently have young people to help get on life's road but they are often morally responsible In assisting aged relatives who are confused at the changing social structures. Something should be done for this age bracket loo. and one suggestion would be for all employers, the labor unions and industry io consider giving their long-time middle-aged employees half a year's leave of absence with pay. Why should it be manda- j tory for an employee to Ihink of increased leisure time only afler age 65? Too often an employee, richly feted upon 40 years' faithful service would have been a good deal more grateful if lie'd had six months leave after 20 years when he was younger, more vigorous and more ad- venturesome. Society is slowly working toward shorter work weeks, earlier retirement and better pensions. But unfortunately at present, time is too lalo for some people to pursue their life's ambition when they have to punch a clock until age G5. In my opinion a few months leave at 45 or 50 i would reward employers in many ways and it would be an encouragment and incentive to every aver- age working person. No official support from south Indian bands Henderson Lake now weed-free Potts said today the band can- not endorse or boycott the ev- ents !o the coercion of in- i dividual band members. i The Stony Indian band wants other Alberta Indians to join them in boycotting Banff In- dian Days in 1972, but they are unlikely to receive any support Irom other bands in the prov- ince.

Dr. Allan, a research scientist in charge of a con- tinuing program to clear the lake of weeds said in an in- terview the plants have died and disappeared, apparently of natural causes." Weeds were almost chok- ing the lake the earl part of summer hut the ever- inclement weather w h i c 1. seemed at the time to .nang around forever prevented (he program from being conduct- ed. A number of treatments had been planned but they were held off and when Dr. Allan got back from vaca- lion several weeks ago. the weeds had almost totally dis- appeared. Two possible causes, or maybe a combination of both, have been advanced as the reason why the weeds were removed naturally. The first reason touted is that the off-windy weather of June and July acted on the plants to dislodge them and eventually tliry just became refuse on Ihe shores of the lake. The second and more sig- nificant speculation is that the heavy rainfall during the first pait of Ihe summer nisei) the level of the lake substantially, so that when the plants came to seed, they were "drowned." This discovery, made al- most accidentally, is ex- tremely important because it may signal a practical yet cheap way to cope with the problem in the future. The level of Henderson lake can be loscly contiolled. There are several thick weed beds remaining in he lake, but Dr. Allan said these will not hB attacked because they arc useful for study purposes. A number of strains of weeds which are resistant to any man-made chemicals are included in the total and further study of their characteristics is being planned. The program did get in i few" licks Uiis summer. One- half acre of lake bottom was Lreated in front of the Jap- anese Gardens. The treat- ment worked. Lethbridgi Society show set nual celebrations.
