Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta January 5, 1977 THE LITH6KIDGE HERALD 3 POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD FIVE, twenty six, twenty seven, tcwnty eight, twenty nine, thirty, thirty-one Hoo boy! I was having fun! I went around and around! I was delirious with joy! It was going to be a happy new year! Thirty-one, thirty-two, Uiirty- three I went around the revolving door at the entrance to the F. W. Woolworth Company Ltd. store on 4th Ave., Lethbridge, forty times. Exhilarated, ex- hausted, my spree of exhibi- tionism expended, I entered the store. What a fantastic experience! Happiness is having lunch downtown! I had forty cents in my pock- et and I was going to blmv the whole bundle on something, possibly a fried egg sandwich. (I would have had more only I had just bought two loaves of bread, sliced, across the street and half a block What madness envelopes A married man when his wife says "Why don't you eat down- town it's so windy Famished from my record- setting revolving door event, I sat down before a beautiful brown-eyed waitress (esti- mated age 19) and ordered a piece of apple pie with ice cream. "Is that she asked. She was nice, so I let her interrogate me. "Yes that will be all" I de- murred, trying to forget the wonderful fried egg sandwiches I used to eat at Lionel's on Carleton Street, four blocks west of the Maple Leaf Gar- dens, during my gay, carefree bachelor days in Toronto the Good. (Good for fried egg I put my loot out and wait- ed. She brought it. Wow! What a scoop'. "That's cents" she said. "FORTY I was demoralized. I thought I had .40 but looking down I realized only .36 was piled up penny upon penny. Not AN- OTHER interrogation. "I'll be back. I work at The Herald. I'll bring the six cents. I promise." Leaning over to a chap four seats awiay, I offered to sel] him an eight-cent stamp for six cents. He pulled out a fist full of change, stalled, realized he didn't need an eight-cent stamp and said "I haven't got it." Oh gosh, if only I was home with the wife and kids. Then I dragged myself to the assistant-manager's office and the lady was very kind and gave me eight cents for an eight-cent stamp and I paid for the apple pie and ice cream and the girl said you forgot your parcel and I took the bread and went for a lovely walk in the blowing snow back to the office.

Johnson Photo Baroiis History Book Club o nieel Wednesday, Jan. 12 By MARGARET LUCKHUBST Staff Writer Niusing homes today arc homey and comfortable but for patients unable to get outdoors or who are unable to get abou at all they can become pretty monotonous. Although administrators trj to make the homes a facsimile ot family living they must ad here to routine. They must also deal with constant changes in clients anc the never-ending concern making good use of their allo- cated funds. Most nursing homes depend on visiting relatives and com- munity involvement to lighten the hours on many elderly un- well patients. The Blunt Nursing Home at Fort Macleod has been espe- cially fortunate in the past de- cade in having two local wom- en voluntarily giving one day a week to a kind of patlent-to- parJent canteen and personal aid service. Mrs. Jean Swiliart began visiting the home more than 20 years ago but with young chil- dren to r a i s e was not able to do so on a regular basis. When a friend Mrs. Joyce Lancaster indicated about 10 years ago she too would like to do something for the pa- tients at Blunt's they became partners in a little visiting committee all their own. "We went each Tuesday af- ternoon the year around" Mrs. Swihart explains "We took candy for every patient and when it was required we wrote letters for them. "At that time it was quite a lot of work but about five years ago we invested in a mo- bile canteen whic'i we load up with articles and push around from patient to patient. This makes the work much quicker and easier and one of us can manage alone. We rotate week- ly now." Tlw two women were aided in their efforts to obtain a canteen through sponsorship by the ladies auxiliary which held a bake sale to raise the funds. "We had to begin with which was enough for another interested person to construct a box on wheels with shelves for display pin-poses. We call it our canteen. "Every Tuesday we load up the shelves with diabetic can- dy ordinary candy cigarettes tobacco writing paper and variety of other small items. "We get to know what eac person likes in the way of can dy and personal items so doesn't take us too long fa make rounds once we get start ed. Some patients are which poses a problem bu we've managed to overcome i somewhat. "We know after years of se- lection what kind of candy they prefer and keep an ope container of it on our canteen.' Mrs. Swihart explained tha part of their project includes doing Christmas shopping for patients and also buying wha clothes they require if they are unable to get out to shop fo themselves. "The merchants in town are very good about notifying us if they are having a sale. One time we took up 26 fortrc dresses which one store wa selling off and we sold nearly all of them for each. Having nice clothes does a great dea for the morale for shut-ins they get tired of the same old things to. wear. Another montl we bought 45 pairs of slippers which patients badly needed." It keeps the two women busy keeping their account books straight. The patients often cannol cope with finances them- selves" Mrs. Swihart said "So we must keep careful track o; items they buy how much :hey owe and that sort of thing. We don't hflve a lot to come and go on but we manage lo balance at the end of the month." Mrs. Swihart said that this type of work always fosters a closeness between the patients and the volunteers. "We've become very attach- ed lo Lhe patients even though some of them are grumblers" she said. "One patient an old man las been in the home since Not loo long ago I took iim home to my house for din- ner it was the first time he'd been out like that for years. He was so keen on see- ng the kitchen and noticing all he household items! Occa- ionally we take someone lowntown to shop but if he or ;hc hasn't been in a store for 'cars as is the case so oflcn he prices throw Last winter Mrs. Swiharl in- roduccd new dimension lo Hunt's nursing home.

"We would like others to ge interested in projects of this nature" Mrs. Swihart explain ed. "Nursing homes and facih tics for the aged are becomin more of a factor' in community life but unfortunately the pa tients all too often seem cu off from it. "You can't just go when Lh mood suits you because thi causes much disappointment t< the old folk who look forwarc to their candy and a little visit "If people are interested in doing something such as wi are doing at present at Blunt'i I'd urge t h e m to try it.
