Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February It, 1t74-THK LETHSRIDQE HERALD-19 The homemaker By BARBARA L. MYTROEN District Home Economist in training Spring is on the way and especially if you sew your own clothes, you'll want to begin revising and remodelling your spring wardrobe soon. Fabric and garment selection, too, will be at its best in the next few weeks as spring stock is swiftly filling store shelves. The general trend for spring seems to be more femininity in style and general appearance. So now's your chance to be a woman again. Don't forget that dresses are more feminine than slacks, so this will be the perfect year to start including a few more dresses in your wardrobe. By the way, slacks are becoming slim and straight legged now, and the cuff is no longer as popular. Close to the body fit is still "in." Fitted jackets stopping at the waist or just above are important on the fashion scene even though loose shirt jackets are holding their own. Jackets can go with anything this year dresses, skirts, or pants. Dresses are now found with fitted tops and flared, pleated, or A-line skirts; but what length are they? Most retailers are stocking knee- length dresses more than ever, although they predict a few shorter lengths on younger women. One retailer in Calgary, Rene Scott from Tre's Chic Maison Ltd., put it quite effectively when she said that longer lengths are a general trend today but "knee-length skirts were always in style with the better dressed woman." Color, like every thing else is becoming more an individual choice rather than a definite "in" color. The trends, however, are to pastels again pink, blues, oranges and greens. Stronger colors which have importance are navy, tan, and a rich emerald green. Various shades of tan are in for shoes. Flower prints are holding their own, as are plain fabrics. Really, the whole range of prints, plaids and plains are acceptable this year. Remember though, when selecting a print or plaid to match the print size to your body size.

So select your prints with care. Fabrics on the market today are fantastic. Pm sure you can remember the relatively limited choice even six or eight years ago as compared to today. We can now pick fabrics designed specifically for certain uses. And the range is getting wider as new fabrics are being designed, tested, and manufactured. Polyesters are widely still used and it's becoming easier to find woven polyesters and polyester blends as well as knit fabrics. Denim is gaining new importance it's no longer found only in blue jeans but in suits, dresses, coats, dress slacks almost everywhere. The denim look is now made in all types of fabrics and weights as well to tailor to the job you have in mind. You can even find denim used in shoes! Elevated shoes are no longer as important as they once were, so you're likely to find fantastic sales on platform shoes. Wedge heels seem to be taking over and some wedges with crepe soles are supposed to be deliciously comfortable to wear especially if you're on your feet all day (and they're good looking The tan and light brown colors are predominant again this spring, but colors such as red, white, and navy are still important for shoes.

Thinking no one really cares, and still hoping that maybe they do. Concern is there to help. An organization which is completely free of charge, Concern takes time to be a friend, a homemaker, a snow shoveller, a handyman and a taxi. Whatever is needed, the members of project Concern are there to see it's done. Begun as a Local Initiatives Program in January of last year, the project ended in November, but has been re-incorporated this month and will continue through to August. All of the original services are being offered says Concern coordinator, Helen Shaw. "Last year the response to the project was absolutely overwhelming to the point where we 'had to find outside agencies to assist with some of the work." Spring and summer were particularly hectic months, according to Mrs. Shaw, with most people wanting repairs to be done on homes, including wall washing and inside and outside painting. "The winter months are the with snow shovelling and car services to and from doctor appointments and the like in greatest she says. The non-profit organiza- tion now employs one driver, two laborers, two homemakers, a social worker and a researcher. With such a limited staff, Mrs. Shaw says volunteers would be much appreciated and welcomed. flINGO-RAINBOW AVI. N.

ACROSS FROM PALM DAIRY Ann Landers Tough beauty PUBLIC BINGO This busty individual is really a hockey player on a suburban Montreal high school team. He took part in a zany fashion show which capped a week of student activities at the school. Dear Ann Landers: I have a very unusual problem at least it's one I've never seen in your column. I am trying to make a very serious decision, one which my parents oppose. My fiance agrees with me and my minister says I should decide only after serious prayer. I am a young girl, considered quite attractive, happy and healthy, but I am crippled. I have worn a large built-up shoe on my left foot since I was three years old. My leg is healthy in every respect, and actually it's just as strong as the other ode, but it is five inches too short. On my 18th birthday I informed my parents that when I became 211 was going to have my lower leg amputated so I could be fitted with an artificial leg the same length as the other. They were violently opposed, saying such things as, "You have no right. God created you this way for a reason." Every time I mentioned it they tried to shame me out of it Ann, it's my leg and my life and I can't see why it would be wrong to rid myself of this ugly shoe. My fiance has told me repeatedly that it makes no difference to him if I have one leg or two. Please let me know what you think. In A Quandary Dear Q.: I took your letter to Dr. Henry Betts, head of the Rehabilitation Institute in Chicago on whose board I serve. Dr. Betts referred me to one of the country's foremost authorities on amputees, Dr. Robert G. Thompson, an orthopedic presented it to her as a gift when they moved into their new home. I worked from photographs supplied by her husband and surprised her with the framed portrait at the bousewarming party given by friends and neighbors. She'seemed very pleased and hung it in her living room for about two months. After that it was no longer in evidence. Last week I was amazed to find hanging in its place a landscape oil which she had purchased and put in my frame. Shall I ask her what happened to the portrait or keep quiet? Hart Dear H.: You KNOW what happened to it. Keep quiet.

Wright J. McOuidbeon Dr. Thompson said, "It is now standard practice in patients who have a short extremity (with that much discrepancy) to suggest a bekm-knee amputation. This is now being suggested for the very young so they will not grow up with a psychological landkap. If the young woman came to me I would recommend that the operation be performed." And now about your parents' attitude. In my opinion they are being unfair when they attempt to make yon fed guilty became you want to have this surgery. If yon are certain your fiance will not develop any hang-ups about the result, go ahead and have the operation. Please let me know when you walk down the aisle, looking the way you've always wanted to. And good luck, dear. Dear Ana Laaders: This is not a serious problem compared to many you receive, but it has caused me considerable discomfort and I'd like your advice.
