Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 WE '.cTHIRIDOl HEU1D Wednesday, January 11, 197S Parents form committees; home and school disbanded By JUDY CHEIGHTON London Free Press LONDON, Out. (OP) Par- mta of public school children in a subdivision have disbanded their home and school group and formed the Voluntarily In- volved Parents. They boast 180 members in their mushrooming group, not all of them parents. VIP chairman Qiris Gannon says they got tired of holding draggy meetings. So interested Men ivearing higher heels NEW YORK (AP) High- heeled shoes for men have been a hit with the young, and now the older, more conservative crowd is taking to them. "The market for high heels has been the young, the says Ken O'K e e f e, fashion director of the men's Fashion Association of Amer- ica. "But in conservative shops, you can find wing tip shoes with one-quarter inch higher heels, almost like a boot." Since men's fashions are re- "tuming to the classics, most of the news is in shoes, says O'Keefe. Bankers wilJ keep over-all clothes the same, but they'll turn to token fashion, such as wider ties and slightly higher heels. For spring, Verde offers heels up to three inches, now being shown at the New York Cou- ture Council's press week. Some 60 per cent of Verde's sales for fall were in higher heeled shoes, and boots 1H to three inches. parents and teachers began by forming a committee to work out a new plan and canvass the subdivision looking for volun- teers. They found them. They now have volunteers teaching school children knitting, fath- ers coaching soccer and hockey, library assistants and a crafts teacher. Kindergarten children arc being helped into snowsuits and boots by volunteer mothers. Vol- unteers are providing refresh- ments after games, at parties, acting as accompanists for the school choir. CAMPAIGN FOR MONEY Mrs. Gannon says: "On top of this, our second objective is to organize fund raising ideas to provide money for class trips and school equipment, things like team sweaters. Many par- ents were amazed when they were told that in the London system, only 80 cents per pupil per year i5 allotted for recrea- tional equipment, awards and class trips." The VIP is organized with only a chairman, secretary- treasurer and seven commit- tees. Instead of general meet- ings, the groups meet in com- mittee to work on projects. There are plans to create a civic study group, a teen age group and an encounter group [or housewives. "We don't want anyone in the subdivision left out. Instead of Forming a ratepayers' associa- tion, we want to make the VIP the community The subdivision is made up of modest bungalows, townhouses and apartments, end Mrs. Gan- non says the VIP may cam- paign for park space.

She has seen none of them with her eyes, only with her sensitive angers. Miss Breadner is blind and al- most totally deaf as the result of a progressive disease she contracted as a child. She lives at Huronia Hall, a residence for Lhc sightless. She learned to knit and weave about 15 years ago, beginning with plain place mats and hand- bags made on a hand loom. About 10 years ago she bought licr own complex foot loom from money she had earned selling her handicrafts. Until then she had used a loom loaned by the Canadian Na- tional Institute Tor tile Blind. She threads the hetlles it the front of the loom and passes the 224 threads through to the back of the loom for an assistant to thread the beater. Once the loom is threaded, she cranks it up herself to get the correct ten- sion. Some of her more compli- cated patterns Involve utlng four or five colors, but once the pattern is started by sighted persons, she can complete it. She "sees" the pattern with her fingers. "I prefer weaving to knitting because In weaving you can the mistakes with your (la- (on tad on correct them."

He also said he would be "willing to go everywhere if it is useful and travelling to troubled areas to effect "pre- ventive diplomacy." Waldheinr said he felt the sec- retary general should "use his good offices to avoid crises and Hut he "shouldn't always wait until a crisis has broken out." He declined to bake a personal stand on whether the UN should admit the new state of Bangla- desh, "It Is up to the General As- sembly or the Security Coun- he stated. However, he said "we are dealing with the local authori- ties" in giving aid to the war- raveged state, "but we made it very clear from the beginning this doesn't mean recognition."
