Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tu..d0y, December 15, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Lifelike, and take less care Artificial trees gain in popularity OR Canadian forests I seem saved as sales of artificial trees soar to unforscen heights. As one store official put it, "I've sold so many artificial trees I couldn't begin to remember how many there were." It used to be that surveys were made on the trend to- wards artificial trees versus the real ones for Christmas fes- tivities. Now, the comparisons have been extended to between the most popular materials and style of artificial trees. Although the aluminum trees were the first on the market, they have disapearcd during the last few seasons due to their extreme fire hazard with lights. They are very glittery but people have deserted these trees for the more realistic looking models made of vinyl. The only aluminum tree's avail- able in local stores are small table top models in gold or silver. The vinyl tree has completely taken over the market. It is safe with lights and comes in many variations of colors such as the conventional green, blue, silver tipped, grey, blue-green mixed or even white. The most popular model seems to be the six-foot-size in either shades of green or blue-green mixed. The average price ranges from to The cost of the tree depends mainly upon the length of need- les and number of branches. In one store a six foot Scotch pine with needles three inches long, varies from S12.9H for 08 branches, for 89 branches, for 100 branches and S27.98 for 138 branches with four inch needles. The most dazzling artificial tree was one seven foot snow white model with either all blue or red balls and no lights. But it takes a large room to hold such a magnilicient tree. said one manager. Most trees are modelled after e varieties. There is the urentian blue spruce, Geor- an Bay scotch pine or the urentian pine.

Mrs. Maclnnis, New Demo- cratic party member of Parlia- ment for Vancouver-Kingsway, only woman member of the House of Commons, has urged women to launch a write-in on :he recommendations to get some results. She says she has written to women's organiza- tions for support. Mrs. P. J. Chadscy, Toronto, k'WCA president, says: 'Most certainly we would en- courage our members, both as individuals and as associations, to write. What they write about would depend on their individ- ual interests, but we would en- courage them to say, This is a good report, and you ought to get on with it'." write even without Mrs. Maclnnis1 urgings. She says she agrees with the MP that setting lip day care centres is a place to start work on recommendations. "That could be done immedi- ately, and ought to be done im- mediately. We won't get any- where sitting thinking about it. You've got to start some- where." Charlotte VanDine of Mont- real is as much in favor of a write-in. She is president of the Canadian Federation of Busi- ness and Professional Women's Clubs. "I think tills is an excellent, idea. It is now up to the women of Canada to see that the re- port's recommendations are im- plemented. "CFBPW Is very concerned about the fact that royal com- mission reports usually just sit after they're tabled in the house, and nothing is done about Mrs. George Tait of Toronto. ODE president, says she finds t unusual that there has been ittle discussion on the report in "I think the g o v e r n me n t hould take some lead. 1 think no government should appoint a oyal commission unless it is prepared to listen to its find- ngs. After all, this is the same jovernment that appointed the commission, there has been no change of party." Mrs. Tait says she cannot say what the IODE will do until members have studied the re- port and received Mrs. Mac- [nnis1 letter, but she is sure ;hey will be heard from. their recommendations. ci UH ii..

By LEROY ANGLE Lcthbridge Family Service f AST issue we had a look at John from an observer's point of view and saw how John developed to be a dependent, passive, timid youth. Today let is try to understand life from is point of view. John was happy enough when he was a young boy. He ran and played with other children which he enjoyed even though he was not as rough and ag- gressive as most of Item. But as he grew into his teens he began to feel a strange sense of guilt and oppression. He was beginning to mature physically, and still wanted to play with his classmates. But no longer could he do so at home or in the near neighbor- hood. His classmates were be- ginning to go to school func- tions and other teen activities which were not over until later at night, and sometimes were even out of town. Though his parents usually let him go to such events on weekends, John felt that they did not really want him to go and were reluc- tant to give their approval. So when John went to most of the functions he went with a sense of guilt that he was forcing his parents to give up their close supervision of his life. Because he had learned to obey the de- sires and wishes of his parent for reasons he no longer re membered, his sense of guilt ii growing up took the fun out o life. BEWARE OF SPEED Beware of some fast cooking echniques that may not heat ood through. ulfilUng his real need to con- nue to satisfy them. As time went on the uneasi- ess which John felt, continued 0 rjeyelop in intensity to the oinT which John began to feel hat he was in a trap that could be overcome only by doing omething radical or leave wme to establish his indepen- ence. For starters he stayed ut later than he was supposed cost him a night out. Then he tried skipping school vliich brought further rostnc- ions by his parents and work- ed against the independence for vhich he was straggling. As ime moved along John's anxiety continued to increase n intensity. Because he began to feel the need for some objective advice he went to the school counsel- lor who listened sympathetical- ly and promised to talk to his parents. Though John was afraid of what would happen if [he school counsellor talked to his parents, he reluctantly gave his approval and anxiously waited to see how his parents would react. John was fortunate. Though his parents were somewhal hurt and humiliated to know that John would go to his schoo counsellor rather than speak directly to them, they co-pper ated with the counsellor and tried to understand John's feel ings about them and react con structively to the situation ,Ttey had many undorstanding wilh him_ Their efforts, though helpful, verc not completely successful n solving the situation. John's larcnts' sense of responsibility oward him always seemed to nfringe upon John's desire for ndependence. However, t h e >roblem is out in the open and s mutually understood so they continue to have regular se- talks where the line be- ,ween parental responsibility and John's independence is re- evaluated and redrawn. Come to think of it, that is about the jest solution to the struggle which will continue as long as John lives at home. HOLDING THEIR OWN TORONTO (CP) In a pe- riod where the place of women and voluntary organizations in society is rapidly changing, Women's Institutes are doing well by "holding their the p r e s i d e n t of the Federated Women's Institutes of Ontario said. Mrs. Oscar Zoeller of New Hamburg said in an interview w o m e n's organizations have changed with their membership. "Women's institutes are cer- tainly as modern a voluntary organization as you can find and our rural connotations are gone." So John began to feel de- pressed though he hardly real- ized it, and didn't know why he did. He was on the escalator of time, and he was growing up and developing stronger and stronger desires to be indepen- dent and make his own deci- sions. However, this he was un- able to do in most cases, be- cause he did what he thought his parents would approve, thus JACKPOT BINGO This Tuesday Evening, December 15th Starts p.m. Sharp Parish Hall Corner 12th Street B. and 7th Avenue North Jockpo! storls at ond is won every Tuesday S5c per cord or 5 for Also cards, free game! and o door priie.
