Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Double parking it was a good thing there was still time on the meter, when one of the meter maids in Windsor, Ont, made her rounds on a downtown street. Other- wise, it could have turned Into -a real dilemma like who would be responsible for the park- ing ticket, if the expired sign suddenly popped up, the car or the dog? Metric measures easy to calculate PUBLIC BINGO Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Up.Uin) EVERY THURS.-8p.ra Remember the silly millimetre? Actually a millimetre is not silly at all. In fact as a way to measure length it makes a lot of sense. Although a millimetre is very small, 10 millimetres together make one centimetre and one centimetre is four tenths of an inch or slightly less than half an inch. The familiar eight inch square cake pan is a 20 centimetre square. And the cookie dough should be rolled to six millimetre thickness instead of one quarter inch. Now, if you wanted to buy three yards of fabric, would you ask for 270 centimetres? Yes, you should, but larger numbers like this are rather awkward. To avoid this problem, we can refer to a metre which is equal to 100 centimetres. A metre is 39 inches or slightly bigger than a yard. Therefore three yards of fabric would be the same as 2.7 metres. Similarly the 100- yard dash is the same as 90 metres. If someone asked you your height in centimetres, what would your answer be? CASH BINGO ST.

CALGARY, ALBERTA 262-3971 Chris Stewart Education Week highlight An essay contest for Grades and 6 on the topic, 'My Am- bition' will highlight Education Week, Mar. 3 to 7. Public School Board Chairman Doug Card will select the winning contestants, who will be treated to a day in Edmonton with other provincial winners. The district winner will be given the opportunity to fill District No. 51 Superintendent Dr. Bob Plaxlon's shoes for a day. A willingness and the patience to assist the less fortunate can achieve freedom for an individual otherwise institutionaliz- ed for life. This is the discovery of Ellen Matthews, the U of L's student health service co ordinator, whose personal interest in Mary Maga, confined 39 years at Alberta School Hospital in Red Deer has resulted in her return to normal living. Ellen, working at the institution and observing Mary's capabilities, was con- vinced the epileptic woman shouldn't be institutionalized. Five months 'of lengthy negotiations followed before she, winning Mary's release, began to share her home with her. For the past five years Mary has lived with Ellen. She shops, rides the bus and takes craft classes in her spare time. There are many others who could enjoy similar freedom if only someone would open their homes to them, Ellen feels. Cathy Evins and Morley Roelofs, will head the steering committee for the October visual arts and crafts festival, spon- sored by the department of culture, youth and recreation. The event is planned to bring together artists and craftsmen of all levels. Morley Roelofs of the department of culture, youth and recreation and Roy Blais of Taber, regional co ordinator for the Canada Winter Games, will spearhead the torch parade, featured in the 13 Southern Alberta towns involved in the Winter Games. Ida McCowan of Michigan, one of the continent's few authorities on riding for the disabled, will be in Lethbridge Mar. 7 and 8. Sponsored by-the Southern Alberta Equestrian Council and jointly funded by the department of culture, youth and recreation, Ms. McCowan will instruct a course, the first of its kind in the province. The event is expected to draw a wide range of people and will, it is believed, result in the implementation of a riding program here for handicapped people. The Lethbridge branch of the Kidney Foundation has under- taken to raise this year, to fund research and pay for the services of the Foothills Hospital's renal unit to train a local patient in the use of the dialysis machine. Don Kirk, president of the local bran'ch, reports four patients are currently undergo- ing dialysis locally with 75 using the same treatment in Calgary. What is needed, he says, are kidney donors. Persons interested in donating their kidneys at death can receive donor cards by phoning 328-6888 or 327-7206. The pilot project in which trainees from the Sunrise Ranch are taking pre education skill courses at LCC, rather than receiving such training at the ranch, is yet another attempt in the "normalization program" in which efforts are being made to make the life of the retarded as normal as possible. The annual awards night dinner for foster parents, spon- sored by the department of health and social development on Feb. 26, will see foster parents of five, 10, 15 and 20 years' standing receive certificates of merit, says Olive Thomsen of Magrath, president of the local Foster Parents' Association. Mrs. Thomsen has mothered 19 foster children. The 250 foster children, cared for by 130 foster families in Southern Alberta are part of the 6300 foster children in Alberta. Rules to follow for club notes An accurate club notice may not be a joy forever, but it is essential to group satisfaction and good atten- dance at meetings. The Herald accepts notices of club meetings and special events for daily publication in the Community Calendar column. You can be assured of satisfactory results, and be the best publicity officer or recording secretary your club ever had, if you follow a few sinv pie rules: Wherever possible, notices of events must be typewritten or neatly printed. Illegible notices may be discarded. Names must include two initials or a full first name. One initial plus a surname is not accep- table. To avoid errors, phoning in club notices is dis- couraged. Notices must be received by the Family Department two days prior to a club's requested publication date Notices for regular club meetings will be published once prior to the event; for annual meetings or similar events, notice will printed once a few.weeks before the event and once again immediately prior, as a second reminder Community Calendar is not intended as a place for descriptions of routine club meetings held in the past, but as a space to list forth coming events of interest to Lethbridge residents. Kindergarten teacher now vied squad chief HAMBURG, West Germany (Reuter) The new chief of Hamburg's vice squad smokes 40 to 50 cigarettes a day, belts back a schnapps with the best, never carries a gun and likes to wear skirts. She is Rosmarie Frommhold, who started her working career as a kindergarten teacher, and this week has taken over a job cer- tain to give any policeman the frights keeping crime down in Hamburg's notorious red light district. With a rank equivalent to lieutenant colonel, the 51 year old Miss Frommhold has taken command of the .police department responsible for dealing with the murkier side of crime in the North Sea port of 1.8 million inhabitants. She controls 40 tough male police and 20 women. She joined the police at the end of the Second World War when the British occupation force introduced an innova- tion to German society woman police. "If I had to choose all over again I would, still go into the Miss Frommhold said. "It is a profession where you are dealing with people and not paper, and where one has a chance to help others in trouble." Unmarried, she lives alone in a two room apartment in the centre of town and does her own cleaning at the weekend: She even finds a good word for some of the prostitutes who walk the pavements of her "manor." "In a way they are she said. Friday, February 7, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Saturday SUPER SAVERS Merchandise on Sale Friday 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday p.m. to 6 p.m. Linrted quantities.
