Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 1C THI HMAID FrWoy, I, LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KATHY ERDMAN LCI WHAT do you want to n "Oh, I don't care." "Do you "No, "course "Who How often do we hear such phrases in conversation? Does anyone really care about any- one else or anything other than a little glass bauble that is one- self? Why do people give to charity because they care, or because they want to get an income tax reduction? It seems that almost everyone is so concerned with getting and taking that giving cowers in the shadow. There are so many facets to giving, besides giving money or things or knowledge or help. The most important of these is the giving of oneself. When was the last time you really tried to listen and un- derstand what your friend was telling you? I mean, really tried to reach him to care? Most conversations are merely empty shells redundant monologues, interwoven but separate. Each monologuist talks, not to communicate, but merely to hear himself. He waits a bit for his counterpart to speak, until he finds another opening. Too many people talk to each oth- er, not with each other. Or, say, when was the last time you really looked at something and perceived it? How many times have you walked the same route to and from school, completely oblivious to the many thou- sands of lovely little things? The wind's fingerprints on a snow drift. A vain tree admir- ing itself in a puddle. A com- mon but very special sparrow, shivering in the cold. A child, completely engrossed in creating a snowman. When you are doing some- thing anything do you do it passively while thinking about the huge list of chores to be done, or about Last Night? Or do you put your whole self into it and savor the Present the Now Many are very busy wrap- ped up in a world of routines and schedules lovely monot onous and mainly unimportan things. Everyone needs t make things happen some- times. Everyone needs to le things happen to him as well Think about the last basket ball game the group came over to your place afterwards and a spontaneous party just- happened! Wasn't that really great? Or, in class, letting a supposedly soporific lecture knock on the door of your brain. You opened the and you understood that beau- tiful, beautiful concept. Am you did something about it. Sometimes, you do get thi idea that someone cares. Like some teachers actually can about us and are concernei with us as people. Learning and marks are important And then there are other teachers Oh, well, who cares, anyway Do you? Now, back to LCI activities A new semester began.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDG., LETHBRIDGE NAME ADDRESS Foster parents honored Thursday RECEIVE CERTIFICATES-John Lofronce, left, case work supervisor with the Lethbridge regional office of the department of social development congratulates Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Boehr, of Lethbridge for their con- tribution to the department's foster parents program. Mr. and Mrs. Boehr received a certificate signed by Social Development Minister Ray Speaker, far 10 years' service as foster parents. The couple has taken foster children who are retarded or who have special problems. Cattle market, says MP lidow worth in court? By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Natural parents are indebted to foster parents, for care of the children they cannot for some reason look after themselves, John Lafrance case work su- pervisor for the provincial de- partment of social development told the Letbbridge Faster Par- ents Association Thursday. Mr. Lafrance, in presenting awards to several faster par- ents, said that there is assur- ance of growth, development and love even in the turbulence of adolescence, when there is more to rebel against. Certificates were presented by Mr. Lafrance to Mr. and Mrs. Bemhard Boehr, Leth- bridge, for 10 years as foster parents; Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Richardson, Fort Macleod 10 yean, and Mr. and Mrs. Karl Redekopp, Coaldale, five years. Reg Scotney, social worker with the Lethbridge regional of- fice, discussed the three basic needs of children as being love, discipline and independence. He said love is not only the most important but it must be uncritical. One foster parent in the audience said the three needs are interrelated and if ou give one you must give all three, for there is a sense of security in belonging. Robert Airing chairman of both the Edmonton and district Foster Parents Association and the Alberta Foster Parents As- sociation described the method by which a foster parent has to reach a child, particularly a teen-aged child. By JOHN LeBLANC LONDON (CP) What is an ideal husband or wife worth in the kitchen, office or boudoir? A top British court has re- cently pronounced on the diffi- cult question. And Parliament is being called upon to straighten out one of the trickiest problems in British law. Widows whose husbands are killed accidentally get into a game of chance in the courts under present law. Often the damages they collect are based on a judge's guess about their prospects for re- marrying. The Commons has given second reading to a bill to wipe out any consideration of remarriage in figuring out damages. The bill was brought in by Arthur Probert, a Labor member who de- scribed the practice of assess- ing a w i d o w's present and open court as a "cattle market." WOMAN MP PROTESTS Labor MP Lena Jeger, whose MP husband died at sea, said: "A cynical person ought to advfee a widow to go into court deliberately looking her plainest, wearing old clothes, squinting and leaving her teeth hope that the judge is not kinky about women who have no teeth." Sir Geoffrey Howe, the so- licitor-general, welcomed the private member's bill, which practically assures its pas- sage. Adding to the controversy, Mr. Justice Hilary Talbot this week put a low valuation on the services of a wife killed in an automobile accident. The husband was suing for dam- ages. The judge figured out that Jo- sepiiine Hurst, described as the "ideal wife" in court, was worth 10 shillings an hour for a housekeeping week of 20 hours. Then he scaled this down and awarded six shil- lings. This was on the arbi- trary basis of loss of the wife's work for nine years.

"Only he said, "CM there be the emotional ties to show that you care, and then discipline follows. "You can't place discipline first until you have that one to one relationship. A love rela- tionship makes it easier to han- dle a child." Mr. Akins later noted Leth- bridge's attempt to form a group borne, and said that group homes were an impor- tant part of the rehabilitative program. Cam Bracken, regional" super- visor, explained the group as being safer for the rejected child. "He may have suffered in either a real or foster home. The child becomes afraid of forming relationships. "For the older child it is too threatening to move them into a foster home. In a group home he doesn't have to expose him- self with the other children as he would have to in a family." The election of a new execu- tive for the Lethbridge associa- tion was postponed until the April meeting. A slate of offi- cers is to be prepared for that time. The association was Invited by Mr. Akins to attend the Al- berta association's foster par- ents workshop to be held in Edmonton April 23 and 24.

The program has been in- stituted by the provincial de- partment of health and is to be earned out throughout the province. Due to a shortage of the vac- cine, the immunization shots will be available only to girls 3om in 1958. German measles is known to cause physical deformities in unborn children of mothers who contract the disease during the trst three months of preg- nancy. Girls born in 1958 are just entering puberty and will there- ore be afforded protection be- bre possible pregnancy in la- ter years. Immunization is ex- pected to be retained for life. The vaccine is not compul- sory, nor is it recommended to any child suffering from aller- gies to eggs, or chicken or duck feathers. Consent cards hare been sen home through the schools to the approximately 800 12-year old girls who are eligible to receive the immunization shot. ON THE ROAD VANCOUVER (CP) For the last four years, three women ministers have the often thankless task a preaching the gospel and feed- ing the hungry on Vancouver's Skid Road. Revs. Evelyn Gas- sis, Kay Cinders and Margaret McLennan carry out their work in the Airwaves to Glory Chapel, which derives its name from its daily radio broadcast. The women operate the mission Wednesday through Sunday, holding services and preparing one hot meal a day for hungry men in the area.
