Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tueiday, January 14, 1975 Parental concern sought over mind, body pollution By JIM GRANT Herald Staff Writer Students are smoking' cigarettes at a younger age than before, using illegal drugs and being exposed to questionable movies on television and pornographic magazines in retail outlets. That is the situation today as perceived by the Southwestern Alberta council of home and school associations, which iptends to focus on mind and body pollution during its annual convention, to be held Saturday at Gilbert Paterson School. The council is the executive body of home and school associations in Southwestern Alberta. Convention chairman Bob Mclntosh says the council hopes to establish three com- mittees during the one-day convention to act as a "voice for parents who are really concerned" about mind and body pollution. Committees will tackle the smoking problem, alcoholand drug abuse and televi- sion programming and pornographic literature. "The purpose of the convention is to inform parents about the body and mind pollution problems" and to formulate a home and school policy that can be used to influence some type of action to alleviate such problems, Mr. Mclntosh says. Parents can be very influential if aware of effective procedures to follow when making their concerns known, Mr. Mclntosh believes. The council of home and school associations decided to tackle body and mind pollution problems after two of its members reported the concerns raised at a smoking and 'health convention they attended in Calgary in November. It was decided at the convention that the .Canadian home and school association will take an active role to prevent the pollution of the body by cigarette smoke, Mr. Mclntosh reports. A survey conducted .by the Canadian association with the assistance of the Univer- sity of Ottawa and presented to the Calgary convention showed that young people are beginning to smoke at a younger age than ever, more girls are now smoking and children who have parents who smoke are likely to aquire the habit too. The Lethbridge based council of home and schools intends to go two steps further by including alcohol and drug abuse and mind pollution as major areas of concern to it and the families it represents. Mr. Mclntosh is particularly concerned about retail outlets openly displaying por- nographic material in locations easily accessible to young people. He has already approached three stores about placing objectionable magazines in an area of the.store where they are less likely to be seen by children. All three Lethbridge stores have complied with his wishes. Mr. Mclntosh believes other parents could obtain similar results and hopes the conven- tion will encourage them to-do so. Home and school association meeting in city Saturday You don't have to be a member of home and school to attend the association's Saturday convention at Gilbert Paterson School. Nina Kloppenborg, home and school council secretary, says the meeting, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., is open to all parents interested in the mental and physical well be- ing of their children. She says in a press release the council has "extensive influence over the educational policies and happenings in Alberta" and is not "merely a group of mothers who meet to grouse about the teachers and have tea Guest speakers at the conference will include Ron Nunweiler, provincial program director for the Alberta Tuberculosis and Respiratory Disease Association; Wendy Miller, Miss Hope for 1975; Sherry Grady, a counsellor with the Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission and Yvonne Stor- fie, a Lethbridge mother working to promote family rated television program- ming. Nominations for a new council executive will round out the convention. PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT (Playid Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (UpH.ir.)

VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Margaret Mead, the noted American Anthropologist, says murders and gunbattles are related to the way social systems are organized and play on human emotions. Speaking at the opening of the World Federation for Mental Health Secretariat at the University of British Columbia, Dr. Mead told her audience that to avoid killing, get rid of the gun. Dr. Mead, a consultant with the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, said changes in the way societies are run can bring peace to long warring com- munities and will be necessary if'mankind is to survive the next 50 years. She jioted that Canada's murder rate is one-tenth that of the United States, a difference that cannot be ex- plained by saying the U.S. has proportionately more genetic misfits than Canada or that American mothers teach their kids to kill when they grow up. Dr. Mead said the reason for the U.S. murder frequency is the commonness of guns in hands of "good little men" for protection against "big bad men" and government accep- tance of gun use in most situations. She used Great Britain as an opposite example. "England in the early part of the 19th century was one of the most violent and disorder- ly countries in the she said. "Then Sir Robert Peale invented the Bobbie. VARIETY JANUARY FABRICS CLEARANCE 60" COTTON AND POLY S.K. For T-Shirts. Yd. 60" POLYESTER DOUBLE KNIT Checks, plaids and plains.

The musicians come from Montreal, Toron- to, Victoria, Brandon, An- tigonish and Vancouver, mak- ing them a truly national ensemble. The Cassenti Players Lethbridge performance is one of stop in a 17 city cross Canada tour. The final performance in "He got the idea to get big, patient, wise, oversize men who had never had to fight anybody in their lives and put them in uniform but without a gun. He took tinkers, tailors, soldiers, sailors the whole range of occupations. The only requirement was that they must be big and patient. "And in a relatively short time, London from being the most unruly city in Europe became the most ruly." She warned a similarly fast change will be necessary on a worldwide scale to overcome a global air pollution disaster within the next 50 years. "The greatest danger is in the air. The atmosphere is in danger. We may poison the air so no man may be able to live on earth." The air pollution problem provides for peace because air isn't marked territory and borderlines can't stop smog and dangerous gases from' traversing the globe, she said. Dr. Mead's visit marked the beginning of two years' of ex- tensive United Nations related activities in Van- couver. She said she hopes to return next year to attend Habitat '76, a UN-sponsored conference dealing with urban living conditions.
