Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta HtfULD Aodnesday, February Home economics department introduces "with-it" course WINNIPEG (CP) To equip tomorrow's consumers better to cope with the complexities of living in the 1970s, the Manitoba home economics department will introduce a new and very much "with-it" curriculum into schools this fall The focus will be on deci- sion-making, beginning at the Grade 7 level and covering situations students will encounter their family life, in marriage and in business After months of studies and surveys, interest areas were compiled, subject suggestions reviewed and changed atti- tudes and habits considered as the 14 members of the cur- riculum board planned classes for the mid-70s A swift surge in the cost of living, a faster pace of life, coupled with revolumary de- velopments in fabrics and fashion, convenience foods and eating habits have all had an impact in formulating the course. Instruction the first year will centre on the individual in society as a consumer, making decisions on the pur- chase of food, clothing and home furnishings EYES TRENDS Isabel Wettlaufer, super- visor of home econimics for the Manitoba department of education, says the curricu- lum allows for future trends "It's open-ended so that changes can be made to dis- card what is no longer rele- vant and introduce new ideas when needed." In semesters devoted to clothing the emphasis will be on the care and repair of clothing, the selection of clothing suitable to the indi- vidual's personal tastes and activities At the junior high school level, emphasis will be more on textile products and labelling, with the classes progressing grade by grade to AFTERNOON BINGO MOOSE 1234 3 Ave. North 5 Money DOUBLED Weekly Jackoot Prizes Fres Cards Sconsored by THE MOOSE LODGE Ni Children Under 16 Allowed io Everybody Welcome include planning and buying which will encompass a total family budget "We want to teach what is relevant Barbara Nel- son, assistant to Mrs Wettlaufer said "Many high school students now live on their own, and buy their clothes rather than make them.

Linda, 20, and her husband James began the 20-mile journey in their car, but it broke down An oil worker nearby loaded them into his pickup, but it soon ran out of gasoline. Eventually two highway patrolmen took Linda to the hospital where she gave birth to a boy. James was left to hitch-hike the rest of the way.

NUTRITION An equally practical ap- proach to food will be initiated this fall, with the stress on nutrition and consumer education. "Nutrition has always been an important facet of the food Mrs. Wettlaufer said. "Today's changing food habits now bring a new per- spective to understanding food values." The program is designed to teach students the hows and whys of purcasing and the department has1 recommended that parents take their high school-age children on shopping trips with them. "Selecting and pricing vari- ous items on a list gives ac- tual situation experience, teaches price comparison shopping and the value of the food dollar Mrs. Nelson said the partment is finding the busi- ness community co-operative and "taking time to help students by explaining factors behind price increases."

Please try I, and thousands more like me are desperate I am a single woman in my early 30s, longing for male companionship. I've had exactly three dates in my life That's not a record I'm proud of, but those are the facts. I'm average-looking, five-foot-one and weigh 110 pounds. The problem is that I am in a wheelchair I had polio when I was a child but I've gone through college and now have a very good position with an insurance company I've never met a person I couldn't get along with. Some people just require more patience than others. I have many male friends and that's the problem. They are just friends Why can't the men I meet understand that just because I'm in a wheelchair I am no less a woman7 I have the same feelings, hopes and dreams of other women, and a great capacity to love. I'm not speaking only for myself, Ann. There are thousands of us, just waiting for the chance to be wonderful sweethearts and wives. We can do almost everything other girls can do. We just can't walk, is all. Please, Ann, print this letter and ask them to give us a chance. Unfulfilled Dear Friend: I know some rnarvelously complete wives in wheelchairs. One is Mrs. Cyrus Eaton in Ohio and one other is Mrs. John Burns, the wife of the Governor of Hawaii. Beatrice Burns is an active and energetic mother. She entertains beautifully and presides over one of the busiest and most elegant mansions in the world. Mrs. Burns has represented her husband and his state when he was unable to be present, and she has done it effectively. Both Anne Eaton and Beatrice Bums have proven that a wife In a wneeleaa'r can run rings around many wives with two perfectly good legs. Dear Ann Landers: The Philadelphia Inquirerer's head en your column read, "Moses Led People To A Land With No Oil." Your reader asked, "Which are smarter, Jews or I found your reply not only sarcastic, but bigoted. What's more, you didn't answer the question. WeelVhimsv 326 7th ST. SOUTH and COLLEGE KALL 328-1511 You said, "A surprisingly disproportionate number of Jews have won Nobel prizes and they are prominent on the lists of achievers in the arts and sciences Why is it Jews, for centuries, have been the most achieving achievers in the world A better answer would have been: "Neither Jews are not smarter, but they have higher goals. And they know how to face adversity and overcome it because they have had generations of experience. Jews place stronger emphasis on education. History is thy witness." Proud To Be Jew- ish Dear Proud: I'm sorry you thought my reply was "sarcastic and bigoted." Sarcastic, perhaps, but bigoted, never! If you will go back and reread my answer you'll find that I made precisely the same points that you made in your letter. Moreover, documentation is available to support my facts The enrolment in two of this country's finest (and most difficult to get into) schools, Harvard and Yale, is at least 30 per cent Jewish. When one considers that Jews constitute less than 5 per cent of this country's population, that is quite an impressive figure. Incidentally, I, too, am "Proud To Be Jewish."
