Premature aging due to lack of exercise is scored by Netty Marse, instructor of the YWCA's Keep-Fil classes. She blames today's affluence for encouraging lazier habits and destroying good health. This cyclist, who still rides the bicycle brought with her from the Netherlands 24 years ago, curls, water skis, is a volleyball enthusiast and plays the occasional round of golf. She claims she doesn't feel a day older than she did 15 years ago, thanks to her Monday night exercise classes at Gilbert Paterson school. Dividing the two hour weekly program into exercise and volleyball periods, Ms. Marse gears her program to beginners as well as advanced participants.

Got a problem? Chances are Elsie Legacy can find an answer just like she did for the Hi-Neighbor Dance club members when they needed a hall. Spirited Elsie made several enquiries, only to learn rental prices were prohibitive, before contacting Father Carroll of St. Patrick's Church. Upon her persuasion, the church agreed to rent the club to the hall, at a nominal fee, with kitchen privileges to boot! Toss O'Hama, instructor and club president, reports the .club's first dance in a year got off to a flying start last week.

TORONTO (CP) Thistle- town Regional Centre, a treat- ment centre for emotionally disturbed children, is advocat- ing in classes and workshop sessions that parents praise their children for good behav- ior. Jeff Sherman and Peter Lorimer, clinical psy- chologists from the centre, are instructing parents how to raise children. The two men have named the workshops Catching a Kid Doing Some- thing Good. The concept of the pro- gram, started early last year, is to prevent mental illness among children so that costly treatment will not become necessary. Dr. Jalal Shamsie, psy- chiatrist-in-chief at the centre, said in an interview that parents can prevent problems by reacting prop- erly to common situations. For example, he said a child might throw a tantrum when his mother is too busy to get him a cookie. "If she gives it to him in the midst of his screaming, then she has rewarded the child for throwing a tantrum. The child very quickly learns that if he wants a cookie, all he has to do is put up a loud fuss. "But if she ignores and this will not be easy for the first few are that he will look for an- other way to get his cookie. Then she can reward his ac- ceptable behavior with a cookie." Since the first workshop was held at a community centre in suburban Etobicokei four 10-week courses and more than 40 workshops have been given to parents and teachers. The workshops include dem- onstrations on such topics as how to teach a child to stay with his mother during a shopping trip.- Some role-playing demon- strations by the two psy- chologists include the use of tokens, or points, as rewards in cases where behavior had deteriorated to such a degree that praise alone was not suf- ficient. Mr. Lorimer said: "Parent- ing has always been thought of as something you are sup- posed to know about natu- rally. Male rape victims Frances Vaselenak, altruistic co ordinator for the Pythian inf,, dn nr Sisters, Sunset Temple No. 6, convenor of the transplanting of I fit- seedlings at Coaldale's Sunrise Ranch is assisted in this under- taking by fellow members who view helping the mentally retarded as one of their chief objectives. Janice Enns is the Most Excellent Chief of this lodge, the only one between Coleman and Medicine Hat. Members also assist with the CNIB tag day, convene flower booths in local malls in aid of the men- tally retarded, collect discarded glasses for Operation Eye- Sight, assist with projects at the Dorothy Gooder school and help with the Cup of Milk fund.

Dan Schlelke of Diamond City was named first vice president; Lynn Reeder, Cardston, second vice-president and Vivian Goodrich of Diamond City, secretary-treasurer. CHICAGO (Reuter) The American Bar Assocation, which represents United States lawyers, has called on states to legally redefine rape victims in terms of persons instead of women. An association report released Monday said homosexual and bisexual rapes are believed to be increasing. The association also called for the establishment of rape treatment and study centres to help victims and offenders. The association's law stu- dent division, which prepared the report, said there appears to be an emerging class of rapists who will rape either men or women. to have lunch with PREMIER PETER LOUGHEED at the LEE CREEK EDUCATIONAL CENTRE at CARDSTON Thursday, February 27th at Noon Tickets are available at apiece from Campaign at: Cardston, Cahoon Hotel 653-3466 Magrath, Lions Hal) 758-3341 Raymond 752-3309 Sponsored by the Cardston Constituency P.
