The school, one of the first of its kind in Canada, opened in March, 19C9. Its aim was to school also has a new a former separate school building empty since last year.

The idea of the school now includes 13 part- with two adult education counsellors on the school teachers, a full-time secretary, a part-time Girl Friday and Mr. Whitelaw. He's also the academic coordinator of the' adult education division of the Calgary public school board. Two "city health nurses devote a day a week to the school and two 'social workers have been assigned by the city, lie said. Miss Jordan, a provincial so- cial worker, is with the school on a full-time basis. She said the school has helped the girls enormously during a'' rough period in their lives.

Actress-singer Doris Day looks pert and pretty under a purple felt padre silhouette (top) accented with a back- tied jersey turban by Adolfo II. Below, she looks flirty in an alabaster Mousse swagger brim by Chesterfield. The woman is Ina Benson, one of the first women on a Ca- nadian force's drug squad, who has been a narcotics officer for a year. Policewoman Benson doesn't believe that marijuana should be legalized, since society "can't afford" another vice. "What good have smoking and drinking done us? asked in an interview. can't afford marijuana." She and Detective Bland ir. vestigate complaints, tips and calls from parents who have discovered their children using drugs. Mrs. Benson also spends a good deal of time in the courts on drug cases and often acts as a liaison with undercover nar cotics agents. She said more help should be available to drug users and "we should get to the younger kids sooner." SHOULD BE PITIED She feels that most drug users I should be pitied. "I feel sorry for them. feel almost the way I feel for a person with a very serious men- tal condition. They say they can kick their habit, but most are only fooling themselves." Most of the youngsters drugs tried it because of curio.' ity, as part of a popularity con- test or as rebellion against au- thority. The type of youngster who goes on drugs was a follower, and "very few leaders are moti- vated to take drugs steadilj "But the followers get a sense of belonging, joining their peer group on drugs. It's the one area where they can walk in and be welcomed with open arms, with no questions asked." Detective Bland said one of the main advantages of teaming with Mrs. Benson is having a woman to search possible fe- male offenders and interview tiem. j "A woman is more versatile than a man at it." lie said VEGETABLES 20-lb. bag n, a-10 or 't id ty ig he 1'e r.-nd ve as a Is as jr-be ve ds H-S I a en-an ire flavors Grapefruit Juice libbys Beans with Pork Aylmet n 1 Aunt Jemima, Pancake Waffle Syrup N0bob VOttee Nabob Catsup FOODS Raspberries or Strawberries 2QQC for Pies Turkey, Beefr Chicken A 1.00 York 8-oz. pkg- for Marmalade Kraft jor 65c A ,ef colored rolls 03C A ier Refills f Ay jtergent Pk9. 65c a K 14-oz. ti Detergent SI Purex, white o Shredded Wheat 9 oQf D 15-Qx. pkg.
