Also any donations to help cover By MAIIHKKN JAMIESON Slnff Writer Friction and gossip are fre- quent reasons for YWCA or- ganizations in western Canada to send out a call for help to Mrs. Donna McHae. This is not true of Leth- bridge, said Mrs. McRae, who is the consultant for the west- ern area of the YWCA of Can- ada. She has been invited by Ihc board of directors of the local YWCA to help generally with such problems as develop- ing a program for the Y, the kind of staff needed by the group, and to discuss a new building. According lo Mrs. McRae, Ihc principal issues here arc slaff requirements and a plan of action. Mrs. Myrtle Christie, who handles publicity for the Leth- bridge YWCA, said that about a year ago Adrian Berry of Cal- ga'ry. a consultant on agency administration, produced a plan of action for the local branch. He provided the direc- tors with a scries of questions which they were expected to answer themselves. These covered a variety of subjects ranging from finance, residence and programming through lo government co-oper- ation on municipal, provincial and federal levels. To help find the answers Mrs. McRae was invited lo Lethbridge. However, she care- fully pointed out that any deci sions would be made by the lo- al group: "every YWCA is ar autonomous group with its own ed board who may ask ad- 1 such as the adolescents and the vice of the national hoard, but it is up to them whether lo lake it." Speaking of the Lethbridge branch, Mrs. McRae said "I would like to say in terms of administration, the volunteers vho give leadership in the YWCA are persons of skill and great volunteer commitment. I tavcn't known a board before hat works as hard.'' think that the YWCA resi- dence which accommodates 35 is loo small for the needs if the she said 'and I would like lo state in erms of the good home-cooked food and the attitude of the residents that it is a very iiappy YWCA." She claims, however, that the residence is losing money, although "we are full most of the time." Two things impressed her about local programming, said Mrs. McRae. The first was the excellence of the physical edu- cation program, and the sec- ond was the use of volunteers in all the programs. "It amazing the number of people giving their time to groups she said. The YWCA has veloped a program of decen- ralization, and in general .akes programs to the people, she continued; adding that this could only be done because of co-operation from the school board, churches, the Bowman i in ii mi Muni Family Living already de- J of L L The Anne tenac I a Campbell Singers 1 INSTITUTE I P S K 1 -k Bund Stop i Smoking Bed Wetting Develop Self Stuttering 1 Improve Study Nail Biting Master Other Habils -k Improve Sleep Soundly Eliminate Lose Weight Overcome fears of: Concentration lr> improve Classic Phobias Sports i Build Self Individual and available in hetro-hypnosis and self hypnosis.

Mrs. McRae then announced he YWCA's newest decentral- zed program take a break which will commence in January. This is an innovative pro- gram for mothers with chil- dren, particularly pre-school- ers, and will be left unstruc- ,ured. At each session the mothers themselves will decide the program lo be featured for the coming week. Child care will be provided at each of the program's throe locations, anc the women will be free to en- joy simple exercises, crafts, sp'ecial trips or family life ed- ucation, depending on their own tastes. 1 "This is the fastest-growing program in the YWCA from Saint John. N.D., to Victoria, and it seems' to be meeting the needs of the won _.i who feels she said. Mrs. McRae has completed the first part of her Leth- bridge program, which called for assessing the group's inter- nal operations. She expects to remain in the city for about two more weeks to meet with kindred organizations, both government and voluntary, to examine their relationship with tile YWCA. will hold a bake sale and ba- zaar Thursday from 4-7 p.m. in the College Mall.
