Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday. Dtcembtr 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Chris Stewart Volunteers needed Where can one find 50 volunteers to train in first aid, in preparation for the Canada Winter Games? This is the problem facing Gerry DeHeer, superintendent of the city's St. John's Ambulance Brigade. Since at least 50 trained personnel will be needed at various competition sites each day, and with the local brigade supplying only 15, another 35 will have to be found somewhere. Mr. De Heer suggests interested residents begin first aid training at the Brigade's next meeting on Jan. 6 at p.m. at the local police station Registering later will be too late for the Games. Among the many volunteers deserving a special Christmas bouquet are members of the Mother's Association for Minor Hockey, one of the largest minor hockey leagues in Alberta especially Doreen Carpenter who'll be spending Christmas in hospital suffering a broken leg and pelvis following being struck by an automobile recently. And there's enthusiastic Villajean Tyrrell, who despite being bed-ridden with polio for 15 years, graduated from LCC's Outdoor Recreation and Conservation course in '72 and serves as one of the city's most faithful volunteers. Off to the 55th session of the Tuxis and Older Boys' Parlia- ment in Edmonton, Dec. 26 to 31, is 17 year old Dave Murata, student assistant at Southminster United Church. Members of the 8th Girl Guide Company, directed by Gwen Uren, have been carolling at the Edith Cavell Nursing Home this week. A stepped up recreational program for nortn county com- munities is promised by recreational director, 19-year-old Fred Tyrrell. Old-time round dance classes are promised for Barr- hill and Sundial community halls; a St. John's Ambulance course for Picture Butte; oil painting instruction by Kathy Evins for Picture Butte and Sundial; pottery courses at Nobleford and Coalhurst; social dance classes and possibly stretch sewing classes at Monarch and Picture Butte. A four-month monthly grant, to be used for youth development, received from the Volunteer Services Department of the Department of Culture Youth and Recreation, will enable the Oldman River northern district to hire an intern student from LCC to work on Fictile Butte youth activities. The need to use hot water and soap when hand washing was stressed this week by Dr. A. A. Byrne, director of the local health unit who pointed out that the fecal infection, hepatitis, is passed on through hand contact. Just rinsing the hands won't do, he said. Two local health inspectors, Ed Potter and Pat Hirsche, inspect restaurants and outlets where food is produced and such inspection is a deterrent, Dr. Byrne pointed out, but cannot take the place of personal cleanliness. The 10th annual Christmas light tour proved the biggest yet! Some 325 participants joined in the annual inspection, sponsored by CJOC-Radio and Northern Bus Lines. Santa, riding in the back of a truck, headed the parade of five buses and 100 The tour ended at CJOC studios wiere everyone joined in a carol sing and enjoyed A CJOC cruiser, keeping local residents informed of the tour's progress, resulted in many residents blink ng their lights and waving from their porches as the procession snaked by. In charge of arrangements were Steve Kotch, president of Northern Bus Lines; Jim Elliott, CJOC produc ion manager; Jack Thyes of CJOC and Bob Johnson of Chan ;1 7. Members of the Whoop-Up county chapter c the Historical Society of Alberta expect to publish the history )f irrigation in Southern Alberta between the years 1882 -1901 in mid Janu- ary.

Members of the Amateur Radio Club will provide back up communication for the Canada Winter Games, i; case anything goes wrong with the normal communicatior; channels, ac- cording to Juergen Renter, club president.

He said, "Jesus fills my every need and that should be enough for you, too." The "true Christian" should read his Bible. Here are a few recommended passages. Genesis "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." Matthew "Have ye not read that he which made them at the beginning made them both male and female and said, for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and cleave to his wife; and they two shall be one flesh? What therefore God hath join- ed together, let not man put asunder." The Apostle Paul said (Ephesians "Husbands, love your wives." Mississippi Parson Dear Parson: Thanks for the Good Word. I doubt that anything will change in that particular household since the man is clearly off his rocker. Your letter, however, might be helpful to other married couples who are still hung up on childhood notions about sex and suffer from guilt because they can't get over the feeling that somehow it is wrong. Dear Ann Landers: I'd like to say a word to that so-called poker expert who tried to define a doubte-ace flush. He starts out by saying, "According to The Book of Hoyle, on page 53" and ends up with some cockamamie ex- planation that makes no sense to us veterans of the card table. That man never saw The Book of Hoyle. Page 53 tells about duplicate bridge. Poker starts on page 74. Just sign me Calling His Bluff In Grand Rapids Dear Call: I don't know one pea-pickin' thing about poker but there are a number of ver- sions of Hoyle, which could account for the difference in the page numbers. As for which beats what, I'm willing to take Hoyle's word for it, any version. Dear Ann Landers: I am in my mid-20s and have been divorced for eight months. Our son is five years old and started school this year. When he went to school I went to work full-time. The boy's father doesn't come around very often so I am trying to fill both roles, which is not easy. The only time I get a chance to go out is on weekends. I spend Saturday and Sundays mornings and afternoons with my son, bat I do like to accept dinner dates on those evenings. Now the problem: My son becomes very moody whenever I tell him I'm going out. He wants every minute of my spare time. I feel so guilty whenever I leave him that it spoils the evening for rne and I wish I had stayed home. Should a divorced woman with a child spend ALL her spare time with her youngster, or is it okay to leave him two evenings a week? Thanks for your answer whatever it is. Uneasy Mama Dear Mama: I believe it is essential that you spend two evenings a week away from your son. From your letter I suspect he has become very attached to you, and if you don't cut the cord soon, even- tually you will be strangled by it. Is there a close relative with a child of comparable age, or a friend from school you could invite to supper with a reliable sitter in charge? Use your im- agination. Make some in- teresting plans for your son when you leave him and he won't be so resentful. Are your parents too strict? Hard to reach? Ann Landers'' booklet, "Bugged By Parents?

BELFAST (AP) Christ- mas 1974 for Patricia Wright and her five children is a Dickensian horror, A Christ- mas Carol without the happy ending. The family lives in a grime- blackened, cold-water row house on Leeson Street, off notorious Falls Road and once a nightly battleground for British troops and the gun- men of the Irish Repyblican Army Mrs. Wright, after five years of violence in Northern Ireland's capital, is an old- looking 30. Her husband, Billy, has for three years been one of "the men behind the the convicted and suspected terrorists held by the British. He has been free for only five months since a patrol of soldiers arrested him Aug. 9, 1971, when the British began interning suspected terrorists without trial, and threw him into Long Kesh prison camp near Belfast, now called the Maze prison. Billy Wright is a plasterer by trade. His wife says he is not a member of the IRA. The British believe he is, but refuse to discuss his case. As far as is known, Wright has never been charged with any terrorist offence. After three years of strug- gling to keep five kids without a father and a weekly pay- cheque, Pat Wright is on tran- quilizers and afraid of getting hooked, "but they're all that stop me from going crazy." She gets a weekly welfare. Nearly all of that goes on twice-weekly food parcels for Billy and on coal. She has to feed herself and the kids on about a week. Christmas makes the struggle almost unbearable. "It's the worst time of Mrs. Wright said. "Maybe it's never going to end, all this killing and shoot- ing and trouble, maybe Billy's never going to come home, and the kids will never know him. Or if he does get out, they won't want him. "Billy, the oldest boy, is just running wild now. He's 12 years old and his daddy's in a prison camp because some- body said he was in the IRA. He hates the British army. Can you blame him? "I wish the bombing and the shooting would stop. Not because it would solve any- thing, but it would mean I could get my man back home again." after you see your doctor bring your prescription to (teVeft 1609 9th BINGO SCANDINAVIAN HALL 22912th St. 'C' N.
