Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 ~ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, February 3, 1973 i by MAUREEN JAMIifSON I AST WEEKEND, with all this gloriously unseasonable weather going on, 1 decided to do an early spring'clean. Lugging around a bundle of green plastic bags and a stack of empty boxes, 1 went charging through the basement like an avenging angel, scooping up broken lamps, fractured furniture, tired magazines and stacks of scruffy old clothing - tossing out everything I could get my sticky fingers on. Then, still on the rampage, 1 headed for the children's rooms and gathered up enough junk to start my own private garbage dump. Son One. now 15, had been hoarding those tattered old comic books since he was eight years old. Son Two outgrew that faded blue sweater four years ago. Oldest Daughter wore those red shoes on her first day in kindergarten. She's now. in grade four. Youngest Daughter surely didn't need every single paper she'd worked in grade one, and she could't possibly use three heads for one Barbie doll! It must have been three years since Son Three dropped that radio. It hadn't worked since. And I just couldn't see Son Four wearing any of those 17 odd socks he had stashed away in the back of his closet. With my boxes loaded high and half my plastic bags filled to overflowing, I turned my attention to our bedroom. My Willyum has long since gone through the seat of those old work pants. And it's a pretty safe bet he would never have gotten around to mending that broken door-knob outfit in his top drawer. Anyway he lost the keys ages ago. Those sneakers had to go - the soles were hanging off. I saved my own stuff until last. I kept the out-of-focus snapshot in the chipped frame. Someday I might remember who it was. I kept the black leather glove with the floppy thumb because there was a chance its mate is still around, and I kept the empty kleenex boxes because you never know when they'll come in useful. I also kept the seven odd earrings, because someday I plan to invent a use for them. I hesitated over the turquoise dress I wore on my honeymoon, but it's almost back in style, so I put it back in the closet, promising myself to lose five or six or twenty pounds and get some wear out of it. The house was refreshingly uncluttered by the time my cleanup finally finished and I began hauling my booty out to the garbage cans-working upstream against six snarling children and one grimly-determined husband-all bent on rescuing a broken bicycle chain, an odd piece of inner tube some rusty nails and a rigid, moulting paint brush. Thirty minutes later, the house had resumed its usual, pack-rat appearance. Why on earth can't our children take after my side of the family, and learn to get rid of things which have outlived their usefulness?

They don't have to have any connection with the Royal Purple or Elks.'' The OORP is the women's auxiliary to the BPO Elks, but has its own charter, constitution and ritual, said Mrs. Long, who has visited 56 lodges in western Canada since her installation as chief executive at the annual convention in Calgary last July. She arrived in Lethbridge from Barons at midnight Wednesday. "I have visited 1G lodges in Alberta since Jan. 6." said tho lady from Rose-town. Sask., "and I found the hospitality just magnificent. "They've been wonderful to me. Most of the 310 lodges and 18,-000 members across Canada are in the west." she said, "but we have four lodges in Newfoundland." Money for the Purple Cross fund is raised through various activities, she said, including catering to banquets and sponsoring sports days. In Lethbridge, members raise most of their money by helping at the wceklv Elks binfjo, and from the OORP's annual spring and fall teas. The city lodge, No.- 32. contributes to the cancer ar.d heart funds, school for retarded children. Meals on Wheels. Salvation Army, "just about everything that's going." They also contribute what they can afford to the national fund. The deaf detection and development program is another Royal Purple project, said Mrs. Long. "We're very hopeful of having mobile units established in A'bsrta and Manitoba soon ... for all children, from babies on, who have hearing problems." Mrs. Long, who has held all four national executive positions in the OORP, is visiting the lodges "to encourage them to live up to the qualities of justice, charity, sisterly love and fidelity ... to get to know them, to lend encouragement, to help promote the good of our order. "We're divided into districts, with anywhere from four to eight lodges," she said. There is one lodge in each city or town, and we don't have any age limit. "We will accept ladies from 18 years and over, and there is no barrier as to color, race or creed. "There's such closeness among the members. I walk into a lodge room and I won't know one person in that room and still there's a feeling of closeness and belonging. "I think that's one of the main things that keep our iodaes together. Three significant events are scheduled for members in the near future, she said; the first being "annual Royal Purple day, which is the first Wednes-! day in June. Each lodge tries to do a good deed - many towards hospital patients and senior citizens' homes. All lodges across Canada participate in a good deed on Royal Purple day." Next is the annual convention, which is to be held in Pen-ticlon, B.C., July 22-26. And then the organization will celebrate its diamond anniversary in 1971-CO years after the first convention which was held in Vancouver in 1915. "We have a lot of fun and it's an organization that Is very worthwhile," said the very involved supreme honored noble royal lady for Canada. "We all enjoy it." Chief executive Mrs. Mabel Long of Rosefown, Sask., supreme honored noble royal lady for Canada of the Order of the Royal Purple, has been visiting the organization's lodges in southern Alberta. The chief executive of the OORP, like her predecessors, wears a smart white dress with matching jacket and hat outlined in purple. Other lodge members wear a similar white dress with purple jacket and hat. TIARA BOUTIQUE' 1102 - 9th AVE. S.

J Polish magazine appeals to women WARSAW (AP) - The letters pouring into the office of women's weeklies have all sorts of questions: "I love a young man, who went around with me for quite a few months. But after I gave myself to him, he started seeing me less and less. What should I do now to make him come back?" "How should I dress for a civil marriage? Would a white wedding dress be suitable or should it be a normal elegant frc<&?" "I am a devout Catholic and love a man who is an atheist. Should I marry him? He agrees to a church wedding and christening of children, but refuses to practise religion." Dealing with problems like these, he women's weeklies claim the biggest circulation of all publications in Communist-ruled Poland. Mrs. Barbara Sidorczuk, editor of the leading magazine Ko-bieta I Zycie (Woman and Life) says only the shortage of paper keeps her at 650,000 copies. The magazine netted $820,000 last year while many political news-papers required government subsidies. Kobieta I Zycie is addressed to more than four million working women. Housekeeping, child care, legal, marital and medical advice, labor problems and housing occupy most of the space, leaving a few pages for fashions. Fashions in Poland are based on the Paiis line for adults and Smoking affects unborn WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States government's seventh annual smoking report claims that female smokers rim nearly twice the risk of delivering a low birth weight cliild and, if they are poor and black, run a higher risk of stillbirth. "New evidence suggests that if a woman gives up smoking by the fourth month of pregnancy," it adds, "her risk of delivering a low birth weight infant is similar to that of a non-smoker." "The infants of smokers experience a transient acceleration of growth rate during the first six months after delivery, compared to infants of non-smokers," a report to Congress said. "This finding is compatible with viewing births as the removal of the smoker's infant from the toxic influence." on London for young girls. Kobieta I Zycie also prints easy-to-make patterns. Recently some Polish papers have begun a propaganda campaign for more births. One periodical went so far as to say that an "honest couple should have three children." Woman and Life takes no part in this campaign. It was one of the main supporters of a free-abortions policy and still adheres to that line. "Our opinion is that a woman should herself decide whether and how many children she wants," Mrs. Sidorczuk said.
