PUBLIC BINGO JACKPOT 16 GAMES LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. stages of childhood pass very quickly for a parent. From the time you first hold an infant in your arms, you wait and wait for him to do things. You wait for him to smile, to laugh, to crawl, to walk, to talk, to be trained, to go to school, and other wonderful things which give parents pleasure. Just when you're feeling so pleased with your offspring's accomplishments, you find yourself at a turning point. Instead of urging him on to do new things, you're holding back. You begin to rue the day he learned to walk when he "goes for a walk" and comes back an hour late for dinner, after seeing a few friends along the way. You wonder what on earth you were thinking of each time you urged him to mouth little words after you when he says "Let me make my own mistakes." You know he's striking a blow for independence, but there are moments you'd like to make a few strikes, if not a few blows, of your own. Can that little four-year-old who used to look so sorrowful when confined to bed with a cold really turn into such a bristly bit of sandpaper at 14? A sick four-year-old likes to be cuddled and fuss- ed over. The 14-year-old just wants to be let out of jail. It isn't that the teener really wants to go to school. If that were the case, you'd know he were sick. It's just that at 14, every day is a year, and. if you miss one, you've lost part of your whole life. Everything has gone around, without you. Maybe even people have gotten along without you. It's tragic! Illness is never agreeable but it does create def- inite changes in one's personality. A noisy, ebullient child becomes quiet and almost serene, thereby scar- ing you no end. A quiet, agreeable child, becomes an irritated (and irritating) ball of burrs. Nothing pleases for longer than three seconds. That's as long as it takes for them to think up something else they don't like about life at the present time. And the moment arrives when freedom is within reach and they are ready to step back into the germ-filled world. You can issue all the warnings about care of colds, proper dress, over exertion, etc., etc. and know full well they will do what they want anyway. The only concession which will be made is not to do more than is going to get them incarcerated for another term. Ah well, old habits die hard. At least you've done your motherly duty and given the warnings and showed you care. One day they will, hopefully, start looking after themselves, and maybe they'll manage and maybe they won't. Better they should try while someone's around to pick up the pieces. Greater love hath no mother but that once in a while she should listen to what her kid is saying. Need for communication stressed at YW meet By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Youth needs age and age needs youth said Mrs. Robert Tillman, a member of the World Council of the YWCA and featured speaker at the annual meeting of the Lethbridge YWCA Wednesday. We need to listen to each other and build bridges. I don't believe in a generation gap, it's an idea gap, but we have to build those bridges to get to the other side." she told about 75 people attending the dinner at Ericksen's Family Restaur- ant. As a member of the Calgary YWCA, Mrs. Tillman has been involved in hostels and a home for unwed mothers in Calgary. She reiterated s u g g e s lions made at the national meeting that a local branch must pick its priorities in the communiy. "We can't get rid of transi- ent youth by closing our eyes." She noted that the Victoria YWCA had opened its doors to transients and been ridiculed for it, and told the YW was "not fit for any Christian girl to walk in the door." Mrs. Tillman attended the World Service Council in Mel- bourne, Australia in 1967 where she was one of eight official representatives from Canada. She will also attend the coming council meeting in Ghana in August.

Is YWCA putting on While the Young Women's Christian Association of Leth- bridge was not visibly put- ting the pressure on its city representative at the annual meeting Wednesday, Aid. Vaughn Hembroff evidently felt the squeeze. Aid. Hembroff, filling in for Mayor Andy Anderson, wit- nessed a slide presentation prepared by the YW on its programs and services in the community. Rising to bring greetings from the city, he said he had no doubts but that the "prop- aganda film" would end up at city council at some date in the future. He noted, however, that it was "doubly fantastic" that with the YW's "antiquated facilities" it had managed to flourish as it has, and was a credit to volunteers in the community. Aid. Hembroff suggested that in replacing Mayor An- derson, the city had sent in its third team. Since Aid. Hembroff is also president of the YMCA, YW members were heard to agree that the replacement was quite apt. BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th St. "C" N.

Sorry No One Under 16 Years of Age Allowed Sponsored by the Vasa Lodge standing and the need to listen was pointed up by 230 women attending from 52 coun- tries. Other women with seemingly more serious problems laughed at wesMrn worries, said Mrs. Tillman. Far too few western- ers, she said, take advantage of privileges such as voting, educational opportunities and learning other languages. The YWCA opens new hori- zons for women and girls throughout the world, said Mrs. TiPman. The YWCA ended the year again in the red by about according to its audited report. Its donation from the United Appeal amounted to over in 1969. but still falling short of the S12.500 which had been budgeted for. The city grant was raised from SI ,200 in 1969 to in 1970. Wages were lower due to the absence of a program di- rector until November, 1970. A loss of income was felt in cat- ering services amounting to due to increase in food costs. In December, an agreement was reached with the city's parks and recreation depart- ment to expand existing pro- grams for women and girls in the city. At present the YW operates seven Blue Triangle clubs, teen programs, keep fit classes, ju nior gym classes, synchronized swim, two English classes bridge, craft and yoga classes. The Community summer pro- gram is an annual event in con- unction with parks depart- ment, the Community College and the U of L. The residence, which houses 35 girls at capacity, underwent some changes and repairs in 1970. Local service clubs such as the Gyro, Lakeview Lions, Beta Sigma Phi, Rotary, Sig- ma Delta Phi, provided furni- ure and funds to improve the rooms at the residence.
