Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, February 17, 1973 P!liIillillI)Iil)Illl!Ill!llI!ISUIM family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON > ...........5.............. ,  l!_� : COMfSTHf iiiiinii JN HIS VERY SUBTLE WAY, my husband recently tried to find out what I wanted for my birthday. "What do you want for your birthday?" he asked, obviously envisioning flowers or candy or lingerie. He .was somewhat taken aback when I placed an order for a steam shovel. Truth to tell, I'm getting just a teeny bit weary of hacking my way through the jungle of junk churned out by our children. If I don't get that steam shovel, pretty soon I'll be swinging from the chandeliers to get from one room to another. Youngest Daughter isn't really so bad. She's the one who's taken over the floor of the family room with her very own little oven, which is permanently chained to the only useable plug-in in there. It's the wise bod who looks before he steps. Chances are, if he misses the oven or fails to short-circuit our electric system by tripping over the cord, he'll surely stomp her newly-baked chocolate cake into the carpet. Oldest Daughter makes the prettiest paper cutouts - mountains of 'em. We call them our Chinook Early Warning System. At the first puff of wind, our house starts to groan and sway under the weight of that perpetual paper snowstorm. Son Four paints and crayons, which can be tough on the walls' but most of all he collects hockey players from bubble gum packages. The cards are lovingly stashed away in a drawer. The gum is not. Nobody, wise in the way of our household, ever dreams of sitting down or resting an elbow without first checking over the terrain. - Sons One and Two are merely natural born untidy, believing that home is where you spread it around. Like nature, they abhor a vacuum, and scurry hither and yon, filling it with broken-down snowboots, string-less badminton rackets, torn shirts and discarded school books. But 'it's Son Three who hits the really big time - the incipient mad scientist which is nuturing in the bosom of our family. We discovered this misfortune when he received a chemistry kit for Christmas. Hopefully, he's used up all the ingredients for rotten egg gas. We haven't had to flee to the neighbor's house for over a week now. The bunsen burner has fizzled out, and all those burned fingers are now on the mend. I keep my sanity, as I scrub and scour and scrape, by telling myself that this just isn't the Real Me vacuuming mountains of scrunched-up paper. The Real Me is lazing on the golden sands at Waikiki, being showered with mink coats and plied with diamonds by a charming, urbane Walter Mat-hau, knee-deep in ulterior motives. Come to think of it, who needs a steam shovel? It's much more fun the old way.

Women's Editor TORONTO (CP)-Tho groom and his attendants can now be as colorful as they like at a formal wedding. They can appear in uniform black and white or let every roan choose his color. If the groom has chosen the ultra formal, tails or cutaways, they can't. Dress rules for those are still inflexible. But if the men are to wear tuxedos, they can wear grey or black, plain or brocade, red or blue and white shirts or colored. The young men may choose fitted Prince Alberts and the statelier fathers of the bride and groom wear standard single-breasted jackets with shawl collars. Blake Duncan says the same freedom applies to any dress party, unless white tie is specified. Mr. Duncan is "manager of the formal rental department at the Robert Simpson store in Toronto. He says the interest in formal clothes has been growing for several years, and that customers seem to enjoy the choice there is today. HAS WHITE BROCADE The grey Prince Albert has a long, fitted jacket trimmed with braid. For the truly self-confident, there is also a version in white brocade with black lapels. There is an elegant double-breasted black dinner jacket style, the latest single-breasted I with wide, notched lapels, and a new creation called a tux tail. It has a 36-inch jacket in- stead of a standard 31-lnch jacket, and is cut to be a compromise between a tail coat and a dinner jacket. You can choose a dinner jacket in crushed velvet or in brocade, in reds or blues. To go with them, you now wear a wide, butterfly tie in velvet, nylon satin or silk. And you can choose the shape. They come in regular, large or extra-large butterfly. SHIRTS IN COLORS There is a variety of shirts from the conservative, standard tucked front to pleats and ruffles. They come in colors, also. One dummy in the shop was decked out in a raspberry pleated shirt with a burgundy velvet large butterfly tie. For the man who likes to be correctly dressed wherever he goes, there is., a portable three-inch wide dicky of black lace over white lace. You carry it with you and button It to the front of an ordinary white shirt to transform it immediately into an evening shirt. Patent leather shoes still are correct with formal wear, and nowadays there is a patent leather boot as an alternative. About the only thing that hasn't changed is the cummerbund. Mr. Duncan says the man who considers it important to dress fashionably can no longer buy one tuxedo and wear it as long as he can get into it. He says styles change enough that he should have a new one every three years. Even the trousers are no longer pleated, and have taken on a slight flare. New breed of children TORONTO (CP) - Television has weaned a new breed of children who, when faced with failure, may withdraw from reality and seek comfort in the two-di-mentiomal world, a New York producer said here. Samuel Gibbon, senior produ cer at the Children's Television Workshop which launched Ses amc Street, said a baby from its earliest days is drawn to the light and sound of the television set.

He spoke to the second International Symposium of Learning Problems sponsored by the ministery of education and the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. A child sees a simpler world. The people speak more clearly, often to mood - setting music, The child accepts the stereotypes and learns to anticipate their actions, Mr. Gibbon said He said the child experiences daily two worlds - a blend of dreams and fantasy which create a puzzle about what reality is. "Teachers who are over 30 are faced with a different child than the children they knew a few years ago," he said. Dr. Vivian Horner, a New York professor of education and research director for the Children's Television Workshop, said television can model behavior. "Things that happen on TV in the United States seem to gain some super-credibility." It is on that basis that television education programs can be made to work, she said. "You can set the child up." Dr. Vera Nowakowski of the Ontario Educational Communications Authority said television will be used more frequently in the classroom. It will be the teacher's responsibility to show a child that the TV picture is only part of learning, she told the symposium. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
