Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Thursday, January 14, 1971. For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor QNE good thing which can be said about the weath-er is that at least it provides a new vein of conversation, as opposed to pollution and the poor driving habits of Lethbridge motorists. A point relevant to all three, however, is the number of cars being left to run on downtown city streets during the cold. The exhaust, which we know is there all year but rarely think about, Is turning the air into a frosty panorama. Pollution is not a respecter of color. We only notice the black because it's more obvious. The white stuff is there, too. ? ? ? How cold is it outside? In this country of chinooks and warm, gentle winds we tend to forget that wind is not always soothing. It can increase the temperature by a good bit. For instance. Take our temperature of Wednesday at -35. That's cold enough all by itself, but add a gentle 10 mile an hour wind and you have a wind-chill factor of -56. Say it isn't quite so cold, just -21. Add a 15 m.p.h. wind and it's like -50. If the weather warms up to -5 that's quite tolerable, unless, of course, we get another 15 m.p.h. wind bringing the wind-chill to around a numbing -31. According to the wind-chill tables, you aren't even safe if the temperature is above zero, safe as far as whether the exposed flesh will freeze at these levels. At 15 above, with a 30 m.p.h. wind you could be facing a chill -20. Just be glad you're not a mailman. ? ? ? Lethbridge has such a disadvantage in its weather as far as children are concerned. They become so accustomed to going unencumbered in winter they balk, and strongly so, at wearing extra clothing. At least in the more northern climes when the temperature drops it's there for the duration of the winter months. Everyone becomes acclimatized and buttons up. You soon learn what life is like with a wind-chill factor of -80. (-45 and 15 m.p.h. wind). Here kids refuse scarves, mittens, hats, as sissy stuff. They've never heard of over-stockings, over-pants, and if they had a fox fur hood, it would be considered a fashion note, not a warm one. ? * * ' Help is on the way this weekend with rising temperatures, even if the almanac says otherwise. Cup of Milk boosted by CWL WARNER (HNS) - The Warner Catholic Women's League held its January meeting at the home of Mrs. Matt Heppler, with Mrs. Matt Herbst as co-hostess.

The meeting to be held in Banff on Feb. 5, 6 and 7 will have Dr. W. R. N. Blair, director of the .study, as consultant.

Our Provincial Govern' ment has made a determined effort to implement the Blair Report and continues in the health field to allocate a very high priority to Psychiatry." "I am not satisfied ... It is increasingly difficult to main' tain services and to maintain staff morale, and there is not indication within the (mental health) services of hope for the future. Ruij ors run rampant regarding organizational changes while high levels of official secrecy are maintained." "I have been most disappointed by . . . unwillingness to take . .. really positive steps to alleviate mental health problems in schools." "... Developments have occurred but . . . they were well under way before the study was started . . . most of the changes that have been achieved were initiated or planned before the study was ever publicized." . .

The principal of one school stated that a deal had been made with the school board in which one cafeteria table per year would be purchased for the school.

Eastern - style arranged marriages-with the parents hunting out perfect partners for their children and negotiating the match-produce much happier couples than weddings based on love, he told the 28th International Congress on Orientalists here today. Matched couples expect only a minimum of satisfaction from an arranged marriage, but they find more than the minimum, explained Kurian, a lecturer at the University of Calgary. "In self-choice marriages, one expects too much of love, which cannot be realized easily in practice," he said. "The sacramental nature and permanence of marriage is the norm in arranged marriages." What's more, he explained matched couples' happily accept mediation from interested rela tives if their marriage runs into a tiff, while "loving couples" do not tolerate interference in their domestic affairs, even if they need :
