Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 7, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, January 7, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor .gY now your 1971 calendars are getting marked for upcoming events, and one you won't want to miss is the annual Symphony Ball scheduled this year for April 3. Last year the Lethbridge Symphony Women's League took a new tack with the annual affair and turned it into an even bigger success. Held at the German Canadian Club and limited in size because of space, it was like a big house party. One could visit back and forth without crossing the vast horizons of the Exhibition Pavilion making the evening a very friendly affair. This year the League is planning a similarly-styled ball at Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant, with tickets limited to 100 couples. It isn't by invitation, and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tables are usually reserved when the tickets are bought, and you can book tables of four, six, eight or 10. % Tickets are expected to go on sale, according to the latest word from League president Mary Varzari, on March 1. You'll be interested also to know that the music is by the popular Mint Juleps. The theme this year is Symphony, now enjoying its tenth year in the city. After being organized and given birth by Albert Rodnunsky 10 years ago, the Symphony Orchestra now has a conductor, Lucien Needham, and concertmaster, Cliff Palmer, co-conductors of the Symphony Chorus, Walter Goertzen (in the fall season) and Willie Mathis (for the spring). Conductor of the Youth Orchestra is Jack Adamson. On, Strauss!!! On, Symphony!!! Two other popular dances coming up are the Mardi Gras and the RCMP ball, although we -have no details on either one as yet. One has to admire Elspeth Walker for having the temerity to leave five single socks inside her husband's sock drawer. To risk the wrath of such thunder as would occur in the Anderson household, is brave indeed. Apparently, there is not as much furor behind the pulpit as there is before the blackboard. overweight-Is it Too Late to Control Your Weight? Recent research reported in January Reader's Digest indicates that overweight people may be that way simply because they ate too much as children. After maturity, it may be too late to control weight. This study shows that an adult who has been significantly overweight since childhood can keep his weight down only by incessant self-denial. The guilt and self-hatred associated with chronic failure to stay on a< diet may be more psychologically damaging than the overweight is physically damaging. Bead OVERWEIGHT?

Some difficulties in hospital work Blind Canadian graduates in physiotherapy By ANNE MacLENNAN Kingston Whig-Standard KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) -Barbara Burton's Concise Oxford Dictionary is in 16 large volumes. Her medical dictionary is insight. They are in braille. Miss Burton,- first Canadian woman to graduate from the physiotherapy school of England's Royal National Institute for the Blind, is waiting for her books to follow her across the Atlantic by ship. She has come home to Kings- ton a professional physiotherapist after three years at the London school. Cancer left her blind when she was five. She took her public school and first four years of high school at the Ontario School for the Blind at Brant-ford, Ont., then transferred to Kingston Collegiate and Vocational Institute, where she was the first blind student to graduate from Grade 13. Now 22, Barbara says there are some difficulties for a blind person in hospital work: "For instance, when there are screens instead of curtains around the beds in a ward and you have to drag the screens from one end of the ward to the other." Usually, she says, patients who can walk help. "And if there are little kids on the ward, they always, always come to take the screens if they possibly can. "You also have to learn how to smile when you knock over a vase of flowers. It makes us cross because when we do it, Friendship Centre directors to attend Poor People's meet it's because we're blind. When a j doctor or nurse or someone else does it, it's an accident." In London, she travelled several miles a day by subway and bus to classes and to the various hospitals where she worked. She developed a respect for the facilities available to the blind in Britain and for British attitudes toward the blind. "They have really very good services there-lots of talking books and tapes and long, long lists of volunteer readers. There are always students wanting to read. Usually, they ended up being our friends and coming along to all our parties." She talks of her visits to Scotland and Italy, especially of "seeing" works of great sculptors in Rome. HAS HER MEMORIES "I never knew what a Michelangelo really looked like. That's what I loved most about I-oi\1on and Italy, I think-the sculptures. "I spent hours in the Vatican, Rose Yellow Feet, director of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre, and Stella Lapatac, assistant director, left for Toronto this morning to attend the department of national health and welfare sponsored Poor People's Conference. The conference will be held in the Lord Simcoe Hotel today through Sunday and has been structured to bring together representatives of organizations of the poor from across Canada. Participants to the conference have been selected by more than 250 groups of low income people representing welfare recipients, tenants, Indian people, Metis people, unemployed workers, Black people's groups and handicapped people.

Workshops planned for the conference include: policy and issues; organization of the poor people's groups; and specific skills. Mrs. Yellow Feet received the invitation to attend the conference as director of the Lethbridge Friendship Centre. The board of directors of the Native Friendship Society of Southern Alberta, sponsors of the centre, agreed to send Mrs. Lapatac if funds were made available from sources outside the society. The expenses for Mrs. Yellow Feet will be paid by the confer ence planning committee from a grant of $50,000 allocated by the departraent of national health and welfare. The committee has also agreed to pay accommodation costs for Mrs. Lapatac. The Catholic Council of Social Affairs of the Diocese of Calgary is providing money to pay for her return fare and $30 for meals while she is attending the conference. looking at the sculptures, and got the girls in all the shops to open up the glass show cases so I could touch the souvenirs." Barbara has other memories: a tree in a London park with delicate and beautiful carvings etched into its bark; a sculpture in another park of a small boy holding two little bears; theatres; concerts; the "atmosphere" of places, and people who were good. "One of my friends told me once I should write a story about how good people are. It's funny. Other people often see only the bad in people. I think we (the blind) often see the good."
