Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta ugun im nciMLD 3 It's worth the bother By Chris Herald staff writer Premier Moores no white mouse' Despite the fact Labor Day weekend of- ers the last summer opportunity to enjoy he great out-of-doors many will choose to forfeit H-just because of the bother-and n doing so rob themselves of one of life's most refreshing experiences. Part of the as far as families ire is the necessary family dis- cussion time painstaking process bard to come by in today's hectic family when family members are en- couraged to offer their opinions. Getting such a discussion underway is perhaps the most difficult part of it if they are and it is at this point many enthusiastic at tend to scrap the whole reasoning it is more trouble than it is worth. But this is where they go wrong. By bogging down before they get started their eager for go ahead with their own excluding their with occasional undesirable results.

You go to a pornographic you don't come out a There is much sense in these voiced by a Manhattan sex movie operator in reaction to the Supreme Court's recent obscenity ruling. Also much nonsense. Of you don't go to see a comedy and come out a or go to the opera and come out a musician. One's ob- jective is not instruction in these arts but entertainment. But people are changed in some way by everything they experience. To deny this would be to deny the whole basis of learn- ing. Comedies and operas the en- during ones are not only entertaining but cathartic and leaving ona with a deeper insight into the human con- dition. As for the fact there is no evidence of anti-social changes in the peo- ple who experience it does not mean that it has no effects. Rather than a bad this kind of adult fantasy may have merely a neutral effect or possibly even a bene- ficial effect few would go so far as to claim an ennobling Most are not ready to accept the idea even that pornography may be a socially neutral as witness the generally approved crackdown on the porno pushers around the country. Strangely especially In the wake of no one has ques- tioned the potential influence on society of another kind of fantasy entertainment which Americans have dieted upon to the point of surfeit in recent years. This is the espuonage-intngue-c rime thriller in movies and television. The James Impossible type of stuff. Americans or most of one hopes are shocked by the revelations of Water- that high administration officials could condone burglary and spying. Yet every -week for years they were en- tertained by the exploits of attractive peo- ple who not only burg- deceived and impostured as a matter of but who did not shrink from kdinapping and administering mindbending drugs to their targets. All in a good cause. While committing limited physical vio- lence they often contrived to have the bad guys knock themselves off as they silently slipped from the an- other job well done. The only difference between them and the Watergate gang was that the Mission people could carry out the most complex plan like their elaborate elec- tronic gear working without a while the Watergate boobs couldn't even rig a door latch without being detected. And how can anyone condemn high-level lying in government when every week he listened with approval as the voice on the self-destructing tape 1-In the event that you or any of your agents are appre- Mr. the secretary will dis- avow all ANDY RUSSELL When camps get lost WATERTON LAKES PARK As fall rolls the time for hunting parties to take to the hills and along with other hazards there will be some hunters who will find themselves lost or injured. This can range all the way from a night in the open in some minor dis- comfort to a kind of personal cataclysm resulting in exposure or even death. Being hungry and cold in an outdoor bed- room without a fire can be extremely un- but panic is the killer. Being truly arald can do strange things to like running till they then getting up again to throw away everything they may be even stripping off their and then running again till they go down for good. It has happened more than and everytime it has been completely unnecessary. If one can just remember to stay calm the face of such emergency and not move beyond the first natural shelter of timber or rock to build a fire and stay upon being confused about the general there would be few fatalities and a Jot of man hours of searching could be avoided. To move for miles and bend your trail all over the place just adds to a search party's problems. There can be small excuse for not having a but it is surprising how many peo- ple go afield without the proper makings. Sometimes they have matches but wet has spoiled them. A waterproof case is a handy but it is easy to improvise thing else just as effective. Just wrap a bundle of matches with a piece of string or tape and dip it in melted paraffin. Then wrap the bundle in a bit of stow it away in a pocket or pack and they are al- ways ready ts stnite and burn. Better stow two or three bundles in various places. A hunting knife or pocket knife will make shavings brom a bit of pitchy dry wood' to kindle a quick fire. The game knife will afford the means to built a lean-to shelter between two trees in front of that fire keeping out wind and snow. A mattress of boughs underneath makes a comfortable place to rest. When one has a a length of snare wire or a piece of fishing line with there is never any prolonged reason for go- ing for there is always small game te be had with a bit of thought and ingenuity. My personal favorite is snare wire sufficiently fine but strong enough to close on the neck of a squirrel or rabbit. A pole rigged with a noose of wire at its end can be used to take fish out of a creek or grouse from their perches in a tree. Snares set in series in an inclining pole set against a tree will capture squirrels and also hares along a trail in snow. A few years ago a small plane went down southwest of Watson Lake in the Yukon. A man and a girl found themselves strand- ed with very little food. They starved for about a month before being this in spite of the fact that snowshoe hares were at the peak cf their cycle and the sur- rounding timber was alive with them. They tried to kill some by throwing sticks and use of a crude slingshot but failed. They completely overlooked the yards of wire in their plane which could have been used to make snares sufficient to capture enough hares in a night to feed them all they could eat in a week. They had a very close brush with feath from suffering much in the midst of plenty. It is amazing how many people go afield in wild country or fly over it knowing noth- ing about a few simple rules for survival In event of getting injured or lost. It is even stranger mat more do not die. An Indian upon being quizzed about get- ting losi said with a not lost.

It Very dangerous drug About a The Pleasures and Problems of by Robert R. Robin- son Westminster 128 distributed by McGraw Hill Ryerson No doubt it is good psychol- ogy to start out a book about alcohol bv acknowledging the pleasurable aspect because 80 per cent of North Americans are regular drinkers and are likely to be resistant to any- thing smacking of the puritani- cal. Then it might be to get a hearing for the truth about this dangerous drug and face the facts about the high costs of its use. Robert R. Robinson was di- rector of education for the Addiction Research Foundation of On -10 for 15 years. He wntes from his personal and professional experience with drinking people. His style is easy-going but there is an earn- estness of purpose in the writ- ing of the book. Too many people take a cas- ual and cavalier approach to alcohol without awareness of how it affects the nervous sys- tem and how quickly depen- dence can develop. Mr. Robin- son notes the irony of the cus- tom of drinking to the health of the group when users are so much more liable to die of acci- dents than non-users. He also thinks it is pathetically amus- ing that there should be such a high rate of alcohol consump- tion in a diet-conscious time alcohol supplies calories in fair- ly substantial but no essential or amino acids. This would be a good book to place in the hands of young people to help them evaluate the practice of drinking before it gets too great a hold on them. DOUG WALKER Hints for the gardener New York Times Gar- dening edited by Joan Faust. A. dis- tributed by Random House 370 New York Times Gar- dening is a refreshing change from others in this field. FXcher than containing the thoughts of just one it is composed of the tried and tested opinions of over 70 hor- ticulturists. It is made up of the best articles which appeared in the garden pages of the Sunday edi- tion of the New York Times. The volume is well illustrated and offers useful information to the weekend gardener. It con- tains helpful hints in a number of areas ranging from land- care of trees and shrubs to fruit and vegetable gardening and flowering plants Propagation and the care of house plants is also included. Not only does the book cover all these fields but in most cases you receive helpful ad- vice from more than ona source. For there are four pieces on eight on lawns and six on bulbs. An attractive feature of the book is articles on subjects such plants which attract gardens for ter- rariums and drying flowers. Books in brief The Lee Tre- vino by Robert B. Jackson. University 72 A light-hearted romp through the golf career of the fun-loving Lee Tre- vino. who rose from near poverty to the top of the golf heap and the million dollars that goes with is one of the most popular golfers of all time. This small book sheds little light on the inner Trevino and is just a glossy story of his fantastic rise. The story is in- spiring to the younger readers poor boy makes good with lets of type of tale.

She discovers that in addition to his books Henry has two amorous Lee the philanderer and an unhappy veter- an of Vietnam. Heather also gets involved with robberies of valuable Gorman's mys- terious lady Lee's efforts to ruin the prosperous family business and a missing letter that is of vital importance to Henry Dillard. Arlene Hale Is a good story teller. This nuvel will please those who enjoy a blend of mys- tery and romance that makes for light reading.
