This situation has brought about an increased need for a major service in hospitals the volunteer worker. Pressure on the budget and the medical dollar doesn't allow regular staff enough time to provide patients with direct per- sonal care says St. Michael's hospital ad- ministrator Sister Mary Clarissa. volunteer service is a major help in providing personal service for she says. The hundreds of volunteer workers in St. Micheal's. the Lethbridge Municipal and Auxiliary Hospitals provide services ranging from the provision' of reading material to visits with patients. The major organization working in the two hospitals is the women's auxiliary. There are three hospital auxiliaries in Lethbridge one each for the two active treatment hospitals and one for the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital. idea is to bring comfort to those people in the hospital and make their lives a little more says Effie president of the aux- iliary at the Lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital. Because patients in the auxiliary hospital are there for long the women's auxiliary tries to provide services which will make their time less she says the LAH auxiliary has a membership of with about 35 working actively to provide services ranging from entertainment to hairdressing. Anna an auxiliary arranges choirs and musical groups to provide weekend entertain- ment for patients. Irene provides a free hairdressing service for women patients which she has done once a week for 17 years. gives the patients a real lift when they get their hair done and it's something they can look forward to every week it is a very important ser- Mrs. Jones says. Another service the aux- iliary provides is taking patients on trips to various or downtown shop- ping. Volunteers push wheelchairs and provide any other assistance the patients might need on these trips. Mrs. Jones says. under- taken for the past two are wonderful for people who are confined to a hospital for. at many Other direct patient ser- vices provided in the LAH are a bingo put on by the auxiliary and a canteen and cart. The canteen operates six afternoons a week. Two volunteers push the cart around for people who want to buy candy or envelopes. of the patients can't even come down to get and even if they don't want to buy something the women on the cart like to know the patients have had a little visit a cheery Mrs. Jones says At St. Michael's the confectionery cart is also taken around the wards by the women in green. The ladies auxiliary as well supplies the patients with reading material by stocking a library cart with current magazines and pocket books. Marlene Pittman. presi- dent of the 60-member St. Michael's says the confectionery cart is both a service to the patients and the Canadian National Institute for the Blind who operate the con- fectionery on the main floor of the hospital. The main project the women's auxiliary has un- dertaken in the hospital is staffing and stocking a playroom for children in the pediatrics ward. The auxiliary has through fund- raising a televi- sion record player and toys for the young patients. Also a piece of equip- ment is purchased every year for the ward. Last year the auxiliary bought a mist tent. we are not a big fund-raising organiza- tion because we feel this is not as important as direct patient contact and ser- Mrs. Pittman says.

Lettie Vina Alexander and Merle Smith prepare gifts. games to the playroom. therapy is very important for the children a happy child gets well she says. The play ladies keep the children contented in the play leaving the staff free to care for those confined to their rooms. if there is one lady in the playroom another can go to the room where a child is lonely or needs something children who are up and around are often bored with nothing to do in the hospital so we play games or make crafts. The children have something to show their parents when they come and it changes an unhappy child to a happy she says To raise funds for equip- ment in the the women have promoted functions including a table top cooking and furniture refinishing clinic. The auxiliary tries to sponsor activities that are unique or have not been she says. At the Lethbridge Municipal fund raising is a more integral part of the auxiliary's func- tion. The auxiliary this year donated more than to the hospital ad- ministration for furnishing a patient lounge on one of the floors. auxiliary assists in funding any supplies need- ed to provide the best possible therapy areas and for any equipment within our ability to aux- iliary president M V Smith says. The auxiliary fund rais- ing takes various forms in- cluding bake sales and for- mal dances. The funds go back into a hospital service of some she says Direct services provided by the auxiliary include a baby picture project. A photographer is hired to take pictures of newly-born babies and the auxiliary sells the photos to the mothers at a nominal fee. The auxiliary also provides a chapel service for patients and ac- quainted for students in the school of nursing. The group also provides a graduation reception for lab and X-ray technologists. A major function of the LMH auxiliary is also to play a public relations role for the Mrs. Smith says. During hospital week in May. the auxiliary provides a tea and open house to acquaint people with the operation of the she adds. ''At this time we also draw attention to careers available to young people in the health field. co-operation with the board we try to bring awareness of the operation of the she says. The 60 members of the LMH auxiliary are in drawing attention to health by another volunteer organization the Candy Stripers. about 13 to 16 years of provide the municipal hospital with more direci patient ser- vices. The main thing the girls do is spend time with the patients helping them with various needs or just says the co- ordinator of the Candy Muriel Walters. girls carry help feed patients if necessary or take care of the flowers in a patient's room. When the girls come on the nurses have a list of things they want them to do. The girls are assigned to various floors so they get experience in all she says. The stripers work five days a week from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. and can come in on Saturday or Sunday if they wish. There are five groups of girls so each group only has to work one day during the week. Each group has about eight girls. The Candy Stupeii take on a new group each fall with about 40 Mrs. Walters says. Girls can return from year to year and new ones are picked from applications made through school who send the applications to the hospital. By fall about 70 to 80 applications have been received and more come in during the she adds. The head of nursing at the hospital along with the supervisors of the girls select those to work in the hospital. The work of the volunteers is an unmixed benefit to the and according to the the hours of service are beneficial to both the helped and helpers. 2 up on Trudeaus B.C.

Wheat sale payments by protein lag behind Sales of Canadian wheat ac- cording to the amount of pro- tein in each shipment has been a long-standing bonus for resulling in larger sales and higher returns. But higher per bushel payments to individual farmers according to the proportionally higher rates of protein is lagging behind because of technical and management shortcomings. A report issued by the Cana- dian Grain Commission says the request of some farmers for segregalion of Canadian wheal according to protein content on delivery at country elevalors is ahead of ils time. This stand was taken by the commission after a study of nine prolein analysers placed in country elevators to test the feasibility of on-the-spot determination of protein con- tent. Farmers plan to push for immediate testing of grain for protein levels so payment for the grain can be adjusted ac- cording to the levels. Since higher protein grain brings more money on export farmers feel they Former county supt. retires A former superintendent of schools for the County of Lelhbridge retires today S. W.

In the Ihe analylical error in deter- mining protein content was plus or minus .4 per cent considered too high for pro- tein segregation. The report also says a severe burden would be plac- ed on elevator managers re- quired to run protein segrega- tion tests. Many country elevators don't have enough bin space lo segregate and store Ihe Iwo top grades of red spring wheal in sub-grades according to protein content. the time required for each protein delermmalion aboul seven minutes would pile up to more than a manager could handle in nor- mal operalions.
