Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 10, 1975 -Tlic Herald- Family Director of counselling and pastoral care at LMH says: Vegetarian cut off welfare for eating garlic NIAGARA FALLS. Onl. A vegetarian, cut oil' welfare' for eating garlic, is protesting tile decision on the grounds that he has a right to eat whatever he thinks is good for his health. Brian Inglis, 30, of Niagara Kails was taken off the city's welfare rolls when an officer ruled that he was mak- ing himself ineligible for work by eating garlic. Mr. Inglis, who says he cats garlic for health reasons, was fired Der. 17 from ids job as a delivery man with Swalm's Klectric Ltd. after fellow workers and customers com- plained of foul odors. Mr. Inglis applied for wel- fare Jan. f> to hold him over while his unemployment in- surance claim was being processed. He was given and told he had disqualified himself from further benefits by his continued use of garlic. "A welfare officer told me, you have a right to use gar- lic, we have a right to refuse you Mr. Inglis said. The officer also told him there was no medical proof that the applicant needed gar- lic. Mr. Inglis said his doctor thinks he's "mad and stupid for not eating meat." But he said there is scien- tific proof that garlic is a nat- ural antiseptic, combating in- testinal worms, body mucus and blood toxins. He said he started eating garlic as part of a vegetarian diet nine months ago when he discovered he had a pre-ulcer condition. Mr. Inglis said he wrote a letter .Ian. 3 to the chairman of the board of review of wel- fare and family services in Toronto, protesting the Niag- ara Palls decision. Mr. Inglis said he is looking lor another job and is willing to accept any kind of work at the minimum wage. But he would prefer an outdoor or factory job where the garlic odor would be less abrasive. He said he realizes some people find garlic offensive, hut doesn't think anyone has the right to interfere with his eating habits. "I don't expect people to stop smoking pipes and cigars because I find them offen- sive." he said. strengths under-estimated' Mr. and Mrs. Lorin Billingsley Open House Saturday, January 11th from to p.m. At their home in Cardston on the occasion of their 60th Wedding Anniversary NO GIFTS BY REQUEST By LYNNE VAN I.UVEN Herald Family Editor A community minded citizen learns he has inoperable cancer. A young mother's new born infant dies. A middle aged career woman is grappling with the knowledge of an impending mastectomy. Each patient may, with propercounselling, come to accept his or her condition and develop a healthy attitude towards such realities. Hev. Kay Hurlburt, director of counselling and pastoral care at Lethbridge Municipal Hospital, says patients' strengths have been too long under estimated. She believes the average person is often able to cope with news of a serious operation or illness far more effec- tively than many people expect. If given a chance to talk openly and allay doubts and fears, a patient may come to grips with condition, accepting it with dignity and courage, she says. In fact, in some instances, patients have less trouble accepting a terminal illness or pending operation than do relatives and-friends. The concept of hospital counselling is. based on the theory that the "whole patient" must be attended to that you cannot expect a healthy physical recovery if the patient is in poor mental or psychological health. "We must recognize when to move from the medical approach to growth and learning, so the patient "an use his own resources." she says. "Patients have handled all sorts of previous crises in their lives, but we tend to feel they can't cope with information about Director of counselling and pastoral care at LMH since 1967. Kay Hurlburt describes herself as a wearer of "two hats" at the hospital. Under one brim, she is Dr. Hurlburt, a counsellor with an arts degree from the University of Alberta and a master's and doctor's degree in counselling from the University of Oregon. And she is also Rev. Hurlburt. an ordained (in I960) United Church minister who received theological training at U of A's St. Stephen's College.

"Women should be evaluated in terms of the professional and per- sonal skills they have to offer." Rev. Larry Hankinson shares LMH counselling duties, including responsibility lor the Auxiliary Hospital and nursing home District No. 65, with Dr. Hurlburt. A personable woman, Kay Hurlburt, MP Ken Hurlburt's twin sister, strikes the observer as a shrewd student of human nature who, in 14 years of counselling experience, has acquired that hard to define professional empathy in itself a technique of charm required to reassure an anxious patient. Counselling and pastoral care are closely related, Dr. Hurlburt says, but she admits that, depending on the at- titude of the patient, she may "wear one hat, but not the In conversation peppered with references to medical research and doctors who. have influenced her development, she describes how she changed her life's work completely, changing from a job as a buying super- visor for a record firm enjoyed it, but there wasn't much meaning apart from the dollar to a "mature" student in Edmonton.

"Hospital counsellors must work co operatively with physicians and nurses on the patient's she says. "It is vitally important for us to know the patient's philosophy and perspective." She admits that she doesn't see "every patient" in the hospital. Usually, she is referred to individuals by a doc- tor, nurse, minister or other professional involved with the case. The family may request that she visit the patient, or the patient will ask for counselling aid. Initially, she meets most patients at the hospital's "operation tomorrow" briefing sessions. "Once the patients know I'm a staff member, they usually accept me." she says. "If you're ready to listen, the patients will take the discussion where they want it to go "We have to respect patient's she emphasizes. "If he rejects our help, we have to accept that. It doesn't happen very often, but sometimes people don't want to explore the meaning of what's happening to them and that's their right." Dr. Hurlburt has her own definition of counselling: "a genuine human encounter a-non possessive caring relationship." The information blizzard some companies are getting lost in it.

After eight years of seeking legal status for his children, Jean-Jacques Le Goarnic is trying to bring their case before the International Court of Justice at The Hague. is racism, pure and Le Goarnic, an engi- neer, said in an interview. "These children have no rights. They are nonentities. They have been refused ad- mission to schools. They have been bullied and ridiculed. It's terrible. All we want is a human solution and no one in any official capacity seems to be interested." The trouble began in 1956, when the records clerk at the civil registry office in the Parisian suburb of Boulogne refused to record the birth of Le Goarnic's new son Abraboran. He said it was not one of the names accepted for use in France under an 1803 OTHERS ACCEPTED Le Goarnic, who has 12 chil- dren, pointed out that he had been able to register the Breton names of Celtic Patrig, Katell. Gwenn, Yann and his first six offspring. But the clerk held firm, and the father refused to change the baby's name. Eventually Le Goarnic was taKen to court for refusing to register Abraboran's birth, a Federation installs punishable offense. The judge found that he acted in good faith and released him, but none of the names of the five children born between 1957 and 1963 was accepted for registry. The 1803 law on names died in 1966 and was replaced by a statute that in theory allows the French to call their children just about anything that doesn't offend good taste: But the law was not retroac- tive, and the nonstatus of Abraboran, Maiwenn, Gwen- dal. Diwezha. Sklerijenn and Brann did not change. Now Le Goarnic is asking the World Court to give the six children the status of Euro- pean citizens of Breton nationality and the right to drivers' licences and back benefits, particularly the family cash allowances paid for all legally registered French children.
