Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 ~ THE lETHBRIDGE HERALD - Wsdnoiclay, Daeember 9, 1970 Says Key. Doyle to CNIB Blind can see WeaV world The blind have a better opportunity to see the real world which is hidden under gliltcmg tinsel for many others, said Rev. E. R. Doyle, associate priest for St. Augustine's Anglican Church. He was addressing mcmliers of the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and their guests attending, the annual Christmas banquet on Tuesday. Neil R. Hamilton, executive officer of the southern district of southern Alberta said the attendance at the occasion is gro\nng so rapidly that he challenged Rev. Doyle to have a bigger hall built for them ne.xt year. lie reminded all seasonal merry - makers present that Christmas sliould be held sacred for what it means and despite all the doubts and fears wMch arise during each year, all friends should be remembered. A special note of thanks was given by Donald Jones, field secretary tor CNIB. to all those who have helped the association during the year and especially to tile many blind for ! whom the CNIB actually exists. 1 Rex Little on behalf of Mpyor I Andy Anderson expressed re- gi-ets that more of the community fellowship enjoyed during tJie Christmas season could not be carried throughout the en tire year. He also added to the meiry-making by defending the mayor from the joking comments of Bill Kergan. master of cci-emonies for the occasion. Special guests from die Lions Club were present to greet members of the CNIB wirh whom Lions have been associated for many years. The evening was topped with entertdn-ment by the well known Potts Family and a special trio with Rev. boylc, presenting the eld Irish tunes. Are women loo apathetic to care?

Matt Hyde, a city Santa for 16 years is wondering this year after an unhappy experience during one of his Christmas rounds this week. loVQ 25... ... pushing the cart in the supermarket. A young boy. when asked by his mother to go and see Santa Claus. replied in exasperation, "Not anoUier one!" Mr. Hyde says he explains that Lethbridge Is growing and Santa needs helpers in order to see all the childreii in the city. "But. he adds "it seems like we're taking something away from them by ha\ing so many in one day," There have been as many as seven Santas which young tots can visit one after the otlier. Mr. Hyde visits many stores and homes each Christmas season donating his time, at one store in retiini for toys for St, Michael's Haspital. His blue eyes really d o seem to t\\inkle when he talks about his young friends. He said they siill ask where he keeps his reindeer and no one seems to expect him to have updated his style of travel. Mr. Hyde doesn't have the answer to the Santa issue, and neither do we. Maybe each parent has to recognize his or her child's saturatit)n point for Santa, and set a quota per day. By MARILYN ANDERSON llerahl Kniiiily Editor TF THE 167 recommendations of tlie l6,(K)0-word report of the royal commission on the status of women released this week in Ottawa are causing any fui-ore, it doesn't seem to he felt in Lethbridge, Day care, abortion and sterili-Mtion are expected to be the crosses which commission members wilt have to hear from church factions and those wlw don't believe in subsidized day care. The report says day care should be available to any woman who needs it, whether working or not, and tees should h� on a sliding scale related to family needs. It recommends provincial and fedei-al assistance in contribution to costs and the setting up of a day care act. While day care and sex education in the schools has tiie support of Catholic Women's League national president, Iphi-genie Arsenault, divorce, abor tion and birth control information recommendations do not. Mrs. R. E. Kaupp. president of a local C\VL gioup said she would agree with Mrs, Arse-nault's statement on abortion. "I can't I'eally see the need for abortion when the information on birth control aheady is available." Two favored recommendations locally seem to be the guaranteed annual income for one-parent families and family life education programs. This latter point has been lauded by younger women as the means of re-educationg society alwiit male-female roles. The commission has suggested that family life education be discussed at the kindergarten stage and be co-educational. Representatives of a number of Lethbridge organizations in telephone interviews Tuesday were in general agreement over both the necessity of such recommendations and their prac tic ability. Women's groups are now being urged to study the report and see that the proposal.? ore implcmenled and not shelved. Helen Hnatyshyn, national president of the Council of Women said in Saskatoon Tuesday that women must take steps before the proposals become outdated. Mrs. L. G. Iloyc. president of the local branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women said that she generally favored the commission's report, "I do think that abortion and SAVE MONEY W RENT OUR SERVICES THE BIG Launderette 1263 3rd Avenue South Acridpul report \ JOILVNNESBURG, SouUi Af-1 rica (AP) - 'Hie standard hos-' pital form, which must be filled !
