Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta F IS THI HWAID Saturday, Februory 3, family by MAUREEN JAMIESON ACCIDENTS come in all shapes and sizes, just like everything eise. Ever dropped a carton of eggs on the floor? That's the most gloriously slimey mess in the world. If only I could work out a way to cook 'em where they fall without ruining the floor (so they could be scraped I bet I'd make a million dollars. Another really good effort is inadvertently pour- ing hot fat down the sink, especially in winter. Plumbers just love that one. And what about tossing your best coloreds into the washer after you've poured in a good belt of bleach? This usually happens when you get inter- rupted by the phone, and can be counted on to have a traumatic effect on the budget, because it's always the good clothes you ruin. Or how about washing your hair? It doesn't froth up very well when you rub, so you check the instructions on the shampoo tube and find you've used the new fluoride toothpaste. All that is cold potatoes to me now. I've risen above those mundane trifles. After all these years of minor, though not uncostly, incidents. I've finally hit the big time really big. 'This week I drove right into a bus. And when you hit a bus, what can you do for an encore? Even under normal circumstances a bus is un- likely to be overlooked. It's a pretty large object ut when you're skidding straight at it, it looks like aie Empire State Building only larger. Every single kid in the district was on the way back to 'school at the time, and naturally they all zeroed in to inspect the mangled mass of metal, calling out with a friendly wave and grin: "Hi Mrs. Jamieson. Did you have an After suffering the usual indignities, including giving my age to the police officer, I was carted back to work by my husband (he and was prompt- ly renamed "Crash" Jamieson by the boys in the back room, who swore up and down I'd only had the accident so I would have something interesting to write about for a change. Heading home for supper. "Crash'- poured out the whole tale of woe over the dinner table. The family, duly impressed, asked what it was going to cost. Everyone turned towards Dad and waited for the fireworks to start. Dad is not (repeat, not) noted for his placid temperament, especially on the subject of money. Not being one to let an opportunity pass him by, Dad calmly helped himself to someone else's van- illa slice while all eyes were off the plate. "Dad isn't blowing his said Son Two in disbelief. "Heavens no! Why should he" I asked, cross- ing my fingers and hoping this untimely remark wouldn't remind Dad that he hadn't. "Gosh Dad, the honeymoon's all over for you said irrepressible Son Two.

Bj MAUREEN JAMIESON Stall Writer For the emotionally ill, the trend is swinging from institu- tion to community care, ac- cording to Dr. James Thomp- son, and the psychiatric profes- sion is "trying to get mental illness looked on as physical illness." Dr. Thompson, a Lethbridge psychiatrist formerly a s s o- ciated with Ponoka Mental In- stitute, said the old way of tak- ing care of the emotionally sick was to hide them away. "We don't know what causes a lot of he said, speaking of mental illness, "but most of it is maladjustment to environ- and it becomes notice- able when people who are pre- disposed to it "can't get along with family or in their work." "How are you going to ad- just them to the environment if you send them away from he asked. "Let's treat it ivfWtt more on the spot, and find out what it is in the environment that triggers it." "I am against building large Dr. Thompson added. "It leads to institution neurosis, where everything is done for you, and if you're sub- jected to that too long, you don't think for yourself any more." "You develop a strong depen- dency especially in the case of schizophrenia, where there is a strong dependency to start off with. If you get stuck with institution neurosis, it is difri- cult to get rehabilitated into the community." In Southern Alberta, commu- nity care is working out very well, according to Dr. Thomp- son. Because of more effective treatments now available, he considers that even the worst type of case can be handled within the community. "A more liberal attitude in the medical and paramedical professions he said. The expanded facilities in the psychiatric unit at Lethbridge Municipal Hospital are not large enough to serve Southern CAMPAIGN PLANNERS Every member of Xi lota Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi volunteered to canvass for the heart fund this year. Xi lota president, Mrs. Jennie Stalker and service chairman Mrs.'Sharon Filuk, discuss their course of action with the heart fund's city campaign chairman, Mrs. Edna McMullin. Volunteers are urgently needed for the Heart Day bliiz on Feb. 14, and those will- ing to help out may phone 327-6870 or 327-4128. Alberta, he claimed, "we should have a bigger unit for this area." Hospitalization is necessary for times when a crisis arises in the Life of an emotionally sick person, he said. Hospital supervision provides more in- tensive care and group ther- apy, and the environment is conducive to the improvement of the patient. The majority of patients treats in his office, lie said, suf- fers from anxiety or depres- sion, or personality reactions which cause difficulty in mix- ing with other people. CRIMINALLY INSANE According to Dr. Thompson, even if mental institutions are phased out, the crimanally in- sane will still need special ta.-eatm.ent. At the present time, the cri- minally insane can't be treated in an open trait in Alberta, and are usually confined to an in- sitution and held "at the plea- sure of the lieutenant gover- nor." There are patients in Ponoka who have had "a brief psycho- tic period, and Ponoka just doesn't know what to do with them he said. "A committee supervises the criminally insane to see they're not being held and decides when the person in question is fit to stand trial. If he is judged "not guilty by rea- son of he is usually sent, back to the institution. "Strictly speaking, a person can be ruled mentally ill, but is still responsible for his ac- tions. If a person is aware of the nature and cause of the act, even though he is mentally ill, he is still fit to stand said Dr. Thompson. "There is quite a discrepan- over the definition of mental he said. EARLY TREATMENT HELPS In mental illness, as in most other illnesses, "early treat- ment he said. There are between 700 and 800 pa- tients at Ponoka, many of the long term cases dating back 10 or 15 years. Schizophrenics particularly, he said, are hard to treat after being confined that long. "Closer supervision without locked doors" is the most ef- fective way to treat mental ill- ness, Dr., Thompson said. A.A.R.N.

Sexes share characteristics WINNIPEG (CP) Equality between the sexes will come about only when men stop fear- ing the feminine and acknowl- edge that both sexes share simi- lar characteristics. That's the opinion of Penelope Washbourn of Wooster College in Ohio who said: "We have split the human personality into two separate entities, labelling one masculine and the other feminine, attributing certain characteristics to each." She said the feminine Is the rational, that which cannot be controlled, a category into which both death and emotions also fall. "Our Western society fears both these because we are un- able to control them. And so we suppress a move that led to the suppression of the female.

Prof. Washbourn said Western civilization must change its atti- tude towards the sexes in order to develop a more realistic con- ception of religion, a step that is necessary for equality. She said if religion is to be of any significance, the church must start accepting women as a full part of the religious life and must also accept the femi- ninity of God. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
