Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, Januaiy 13, 1975 TI-IF. IT ntnniOCE HFRALD 17 Chris Stewart Family membership is encouraged by the Lethbridge Archery Club which meels Thursday nights from 7 to 9 in Gym 2 of the civic centre. Membership already stands at 20. Required equipment consists of a bow, arrow, armguard and finger tab, all available for approximately Self-taught, enthusiastic members, Marie and Michael Popson both captured provincial honors in the Alberta Summer Games last August. Age isn't a factor in archery, they say. Members range in ages from 8 to 60. Shooting is done indoors from November through March. Seventy-five additional volunteers, willing to give two hours of their time, are needed for the annual Heart Fund canvass slated for Feb. 3. .Volunteers are asked to pick up their kits at the nurses' residence of St. Michael's Hospital, Jan. 22, between 5 and 9 p.m., when John O'Neil executive director, of Calgary, Reed Ainscough, R. Williams, Dr. G. S. Balfour, Isabel Wray, Ruth Kemp and canvass chairman Betty Hargreaves will be on hand to meet them. Volunteers should contact Ms. Kemp at 327-3322 or Ms. Hargreayes at 327-6593. A total of 650 voluneers will be involved locally. The contribution made by Information Lethbridge is mounting as this southern Alberta city becomes increasingly popular. Diane Miedema, assistant to Information Supervisor, Kay Jensen, reports an increasing number of enquiries from prospective Lethbridge residents, from as far away as South Africa. During the past year, ending Aug. 31, a total of telephone calls were received at this office housed in the Yates, in addition to landlord and tenant enquiries plus general enquiries and 320 to do with rental problems. Joe Karl, safety training co-ordinator and disaster service director for the city, reports there is a definite shortage of peo- ple trained in safety measures. His job is to oversee the safety of the city's 650 employees, inspect job sites, see that safe work- ing practices are implemented and that city vehicles are driven safely and carefully. As a result, accidents and insurance claims in 1974 were down considerably. There hasn't been a city employee fatality since the man hole disaster of 1967 when leak- ing gas killed an employee. Back from the 23rd annual Alberta Disaster Services Conference, Mr. Karl reports emphasis has switched to disaster service rather than the former emergency service designed to take care of war emergencies only. Should a local disaster occur, he says, the city's 23 schools would be available for lodging. Captain and Mrs. Ron Butcher would be in charge of clothing; Mr. and Mrs. Bill Larson, lodging; Marilyn Krammer, feeding and Betty Gal, registration. A citizen's band radio was installed at the public works' office Saturday, to speed up communication should a disaster or emergency occur. Bill Rollingson Jr., took over the presidency of the 51- membor Coulee Kruzers, Jan. 1. Members, equipped with their four-wheel drives, will be off ice fishing at Police Lake, Sunday, as part of their monthly outings, geared always to include the entire family. Members provided transportation for local doc- tors and nurses at the height of the recent snowstorm as they had done previously in the heavy snowstorms of '67 and '72. Members hold annual rallies on army lease land west of Kipp. Lome Krogman, run committee chairman, is in charge of monthly outings. Interest is mounting in the citizen's band radio, according to Ross Whitmore of the Lethbridge General Radio Service. Stan Chervinski heads the local ISO-member club. The low-cost, two-way, low-range operation is becoming especially popular with young people, ranchers, farmers and small business men who value their time. The group meets on the second Sunday of the month at p.m. at the Bowman Arts Centre. Members, together with HAM operators, will be standing by at Taber, Claresholm and Standoff during the Winter Games to send results back to Lethbridge in the event there is an overcrowding of the telephone communications. Residential bus service will be introduced in West Lethbridge as soon as the new Sixth Avenue bridge is opened, says J. W. Frouws, superintendent of the city's transit department. The service to Dalhousie and Laval Roads in the new subdivision will coincide with regular runs to the U of L at a.m. and continuing through until p.m. Two new 000 buses will be added to the city's fleet of 17 transit buses and 14 school buses, within the next month. The bus service extend- ed recently to northeast Lethbridge is proving very popular. Both the No. 1 and No. 1A buses connect downtown with the No. 5 and No. 5A carrying passengers to Woolco in only 40 minutes. The Day Care Centre operating at the U of L, while organiz- ed primarily to service university students, is also available to working mothers. Operating from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from a separate building skirting the west parking area, the centre is supervised by Betty Kuchka, Dorothy Fritz and Rose Janisko. Ian Wells serves as chairman of the parents' committee. Newana Maslen, president of the Society for Hearing Han- dicapped, is opposed to sign language classes conducted at the Gilbert Paterson school. She feels once a person learns sign language, chances are he'll not try to speak. Ms. Maslen, who is hoping a lip-reading program will be introduced at LCC, deplores the fact there is no such program yet available in the southern part of the province. Infants can be fitted with contact lenses You've come a long way, baby! Liberation has improved employment opportunities and pay, added day care and pension benefits, but the women's movement still has a lot to do! Take, for example, the chauvinist image of the snowman, here put down in an icy sculpture designed and built by Lory Wiens of Westbank, B.C. One of Ms. Wiens' friends, Angela Woch, also of Westbank, lights the snow- woman's cigarette. TORONTO (CP) Dr. Henry P. Brent of the Hospital for Sick Children says soft contact lenses for babies have advantages but there is one lenses sometimes get lost. "We wonder if they've eaten Dr. Brent said in an interview. If that is the problem, the only damage would be to the parents' pockctbook. The doc- tor said soft contact lenses do not harm babies. Dr. Brent super-vises a con- tact lens clinic held weekly at the hospital. Many children who attend the clinic have had cataracts removed while others have had different vi- sion strengths in each eye. Dr. Brent said infants as young as six months can be fitted with soft contact lenses and the soft lenses accustom children to wearing a lens. "If they need a hard lens later for better vision they ac- cept it more the doc- tor said. Most children can handle lenses by the time they are five or six years old. MUST BE FITTED EARLY Melissa Brown, 3, has been wearing contact lenses for al- most two years. She had a cataract removed at the hospital before she was two years old. "To be effective, contact lenses must be fitted Dr Rrpnl iniri Another patient, Janine Willie, 4, of Toronto had a cataract removed in British Columbia when she was six months old. As far as her doctors know, she is the only living person born with a cataract in one eye who has developed full vi- sion in that eye. "When they came here, Ja- nine was too young to have had her vision Dr. Brent said. When he tested the eye, he was surprised to find its sight was normal. A cataract clouds the lens of the eye so light cannot get through to the retina to permit vision. Dr. Brent said Janine's mother kept a patch over the child's good eye, forcing her to use the other.
