Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-12,Lethbridge, Alberta Face lift adds charm to former farmhouse open staircase Mike Sutherland likes old and new things. Take his home, for instance. It is a 70-year-old rather rundown house that originally was a farm house. Still, it has several features which stand the test of time. Then, to his old house he added the new — $1,600 worth of interior decorating and renovating. In the spring he plans more “new” and will relinish the home’s exterior in an old English style The two-storey house was almost ideal for Mr. Sutherland who has some antique furniture and some. modern styles. He was able to partially restore and }artially modernize the old louse. ^ Mr. Sutherland, manager of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce, thinks of his house as a project and did all the carpentrv work RICK ERVIN, phcsios- himsell. He hired a custom painter. Bill McDougald. to repaint the entire interior in modern colors. The cove kitchen, originally white, is now brilliant yellow and burnt red. He retained the old stove and incorporated lottr wrought iron chairs and painted them a matching yellow. The major change he has made is in the staircase, which is now wide open with no bannister. He ran gold, white and beige.^thlck. shag carpet up the stairs and throughout the main floor, excluding the kitchen. At one end of the living rciom is a dark brown cork wall with mirror tiling under a book shelf on an adjacent wall, giving the room more depth.. French doors lead into the room, which is furbished with black leather fur- Spanli rocker near the fireplace, giving the roam a real cosy atmosphere. The gas fireplace will eventually be converted to a natural one. The dining room was changed into a sitting room with a huge color television in one corner^ Upstairs, the two bedroom floors are painted bright blue, with one room's walls in contrasting orange. The master bedroom is furnished in antique maple with royal blue curtains and bedspread. ■ The bathroom, with a big old'fashioned bathtub, has a feature wall covered with newspaper mac-tac. The main feature in the house that was restored is the iiot water heating systeni. “You just can’t b«at this kind of heating," Mr. Sutherland said. All the radiators were left exposed and painted to match the walls. .. originally a farmhouse ... Mike Sytherland relaxes in a cosy atmosphere . cork wall with mirror tile under book shelf F.O.E.

These were suggestions made by Laura Sania of St. Catharines, Ont., chairman of the Ontario Council on the Status of Women and a longtime champion of women’s rights in Canada. She was one of only a handful of women sprinkled among the bankers and stockholders of the Royal at its 104th annual meeting. And although bank chairman W. Earle McLaughlin ruled that Mrs. Sabia had not become a shareholder of the bank early enough to qualify to address the meeting or make a motion, she was allowed to present her grievances to the meeting.    . She congratulated R. C. Frazee, executive vicepresident and chief general manager of the bank, for ad* mitting in his speech to the meeting that there were “certain mistakes to be rectified in future in regard to women” within the bank. And then, to the applause and laughter of the assembled shareholders, she suggested the bank could do without “Mary,”- who plays a bank employee or teller in the bank’s advertising campaigns. “Perhaps you could get rid of that ‘let’s pretend in the bank’,” a booklet on banking used in Ontario schools. Mrs. Sabia said it portrays little girls In the menial routine jobs of banking and little boys in executive positions. “I don’t mind all the good jobs being male, but surely you could get rid of that ‘may I get you a cup of tea Mr. President’”—a sentence attributed to a little girl in the last page of the booklet, Mrs. Sabia said. $ CASH BIHGO % TflWCMT, SATUIUY - 7;» O'CLOCK HUMAMAN OLD TIMERS HALL AII DO IlNkHl Halt ^ Mr Ml WM mr) tmrlti fM 1—1 *mlm JKkHH JACKPOTS Now $135 and $80 5br«ifwSi.00ir2SiNGli (Loc»fd Hum Nfr, 1 Flftwil).

S«ndj[our^hil£t2¡o¡¡t¡on^^ Pre-marital help sought VANCOUVER (CP) -British Columbia Premier Dave Barrett told the Pastoral Institute of B.C. this week he would like to see legislation creating a framework for pre-marital counselling for a six-week period before marriage. “I would like to see churches, the Pastoral Institute and other interested bodies Involved in pre-martial counselling for young people, and the state would be willing to fund such groups," Mr. Barrett told about 400 persons. OTTAWA (CP) - A Civic Hospital poisons expert says iron should be removed from all chewable children’s vitamins. Dr. Celia Viets, director of the hospital poison information centre, says in a published article that in 1972 the centre handled 15 cases of children poisoned by having eaten iron compared with only one case in 1971. ■ The article was published in this month’s edition of Canadian Family Physician, the official organ of the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Dr. Viets says the main problem is that labels on bottles of children’s vitamins give no warning of the deadly effects of the iron contained in the tablets and carry only the amount of impure iron salts the tablets contain, not the amount of elemental iron in each tablet—essential in the treatment of iron poisoning. Because of this not even parents are aware the tablets are potentially lethal she says. While the Canadian Bulletin of Nutrition places the necessary daily intake of iron for a child under five years at five milligrams a day, Dr. Viets. says most children get twice that amount through normal food eaten. A single serving of com flakes, she says, contains four IRISH MEETING at the Bowman Arts Centre SUNDAY. JANUARY 13 at 8:00 p.m. EVERYONB WELCOME { 1\( ill FIFTH AVENUE SOUTH LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA.

Even accounting for economic conditions, tests undertaken by Dr. Viets and her associates show that average Canadian children under five receive 12 to 17 milligrams of elemental iron a day without taking vitamin supplements. And, she warns, because families have no warning of the potential hazard of chewable vitamin tablets, bottles of them — some containing up to 3,000 milligrams of elemental iron — are left on kitchen tables in easy reach of children while other medicines known to be dangerous are locked safely away.
