Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-16,Lethbridge, Alberta ■è Off to the rink Two eager young fellows, two hockey sticks and one goal net can only spelt fun and an Impending hockey game at the local outdoor rink. Shown on Faithful donors prevent disaster TORONTO (CP) -Although only four per cent of Canada’s eligible blood donors give blood regularly — one every three months — they keep a vital part of Canada’s medical system from grinding to a halt, a spokesman for the Canadian Red Cross said here. WANTED concerned People to Provide room, board, care to a working elderly lady. Better than average rates for right home. Phone 328-9281 — Days 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or 326-2940, Evenings. Dr. Roger Perrault, national director of the Canadian Red Cross blood transfusion service, said if they didn't, Canada might have to rely on a commercial blood transfusion service like some operating with disastrous side effects in some parts of the United States. In some areas of the U.S. where there is no voluntary donor system, hospitals charge as much as $70 for a pint of blood, he said. It could mean a crushing financial blow for the patient. He said where blood is bought and sold, commercial blood banks have attracted people desperate for money who learn how to get around the screening process which might find them unsuitable donors. As a result, the U.S. has thousands of cases of hepatitis —    hundreds resulting in death —    from diseases passed on by blood tranfusions, he said. The U.S. department of health, education and welfare recently set the average at 17,000 cases of hepatitis annually, with 850 deaths. In Canada, the incidence of post-transfusion hepatitis is negligible, Dr. Perrault said. Violin practice relaxes housewife AFTERNOON BINGO EVERY THURS. AT 2 P.M.

A half hour with her violin is all that is needed to relax her. Getting away from it all isn’t an easy matter for this mother of 11, whose children's ages range from four to 17. If she waited for the ideal opportunity it would never arrive so she just drops everything, props up her music stand and shuts herself off with her music. Violinist with the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra and soprano with the university choir she saves Monday and Tuesday nights for practices and rarely misses. She is determined to not allow household duties to rob her of this outlet and thinks nothing of putting off chores until she returns from practices If she didn’t she would never get there. She finds housework is incessant. “It’s just always there waiting to be done,” she says But an hour’s diversion with her music sends her back to her kitchen enthusiastic about such humdrum tasks as dish-washing. Husband Jack, the city solicitor co-operates wonderfully as do the Hammond children. As son Brock put it, "We’re proud our mother’s in the symphony.” Mrs. Hammond has been surprised at the variety of household tasks the children undertake when they know she is occupied with her music. □ONEIDA 20 Piece Set Sal ON FI DA 20 Piece Set Sale Oneida Deluxe Stainless Community Stainless 20 Pi Service roun s-piêcë “LACE settings .‘o ; ■ \ a j.'

VANCOUVER (CP) -When he was 17, George Brown appeared in court on Burns Lake, B.C., on a theft charge. He got court fright and spent seven months in Oakalla prison. Now, at 31, he plans to help other Indian youths find their way through the judicial labyrinth. He is one of 11 graduates of the first special training program set up by the Native Courtworkers’ and Counselling Association of British Columbia. “When I went to court and the judge asked me what I had to say for myself, I just stood there .and said nothing,” said Mr. Brown. “And when he asked me for my plea, I just pleaded guilty without knowing the consequences. 1 Knowing what I do now, it shouldn’t have happened that way.” The problem is that Indians know about as much about the police and courts as the police and courts know about Indian people. In B.C., although Indians make up about 2.5 per cent of the population, they account for about one-seventh of the prison population. MANY UNREPRESENTED Mr Brown believes that by the time most Indians understand the legal system, they are in federal penitentiaries, “and by then it’s too late for us to help them.” THE BETTER HALF The courtworkers’ association maintains “it has often been found that the Indian, when charged, is not represented in court and is often confused as to just what he has been charged with and why. “This often occurs because he is too poor to obtain legal counsel himself and does not know the procedure for get* ting a legal aid lawyer, should there be one in his area. If representation of any kind were made, alternatives to imprisonment or fines would be placed before the court.” The concept of Indian courtworkers is not new—various Indian centres have used parttime lay personnel and the John Howard Society has employed one since 1970—but the recent graduates represent a refined and expanded use of the concept. HAVE COURT STATUS They are fully accredited courtworkers. They will have access to lockups, a voice in the courtroom andthe power to act for their clients if a lawyer cannot be present. The training program was led by Ian Waddell, a lawyer instrumental in setting up the Vancouver Community Legal Assistance Society. The federal justice department and the provincial attor-ney-general’s department are supplying 1200,000 for the project on a one-year trial. More than 150 applied for the course and the 11 selected By Barnes Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My wife and I have been married for 35 years. We slept together in a standard-size bed until five years ago. I moved to the spare room after being badgered with the following complaints. “Turn your head. You are breathing in my face.” “Move on your side. Your snoring is keeping me awake.” “Your feet are cold. Get them away ” “Slide over to your side of the bed. I’m about to fall off.” “Give me some covers. Last night I dam near froze to death and,woke up with a sore , throat ” “Stop moving. You’ve awakened me twice already.” I must say I have enjoyed sleeping in a bed myself these past five years. Yesterday my wife asked me to return to the old arrangement. What should I say? — New York Reader Dear New York: Tell her it’s a great place to visit but you don't want to live there. Then prove it. Dear Ann Landers: I'm a 20-year-old girl who just about bawls whenever I read those letters from women who are Hadassah women honor Israeli kin WINNIPEG (CP) - The Women of Israel, collectively, have been named recipients of Hadassah-Wizo’s special Rebekah Sieff award for strength they have shown in recent times. The award was presented this week at a dinner attended by about 900 delegates to the Hadassah organization’s 95th biennial convention in Canada. National president Mrs. B. Bloomfiel presented the award to Mrs. Navah Kaplan of Tel Aviv, a young Israeli widow. The convention entered its third day Wednesday, with discussions planned on the techniques of fund raising and a youth group luncheon. were given theoretical and practical instruction days a week for a month. They visited community resources, courts and social services. The 11 graduates will start a community relations pro gram to let those in chargepolice, magistrates, welfare, tenant groups, manpower officials, parole and probation officers and other socio-legal organizations—know about the new human resource in town. Released patient returns as teacher trying to lose weight. I’m 5’5”, have weighed 103 pounds for the last four years, and would give anything if I could put on ten pounds. I’ve gone to three different doctors and they all say I'm in good health and not to worry. One doctor said I’d probably put on weight after I had a few babies. Another said it would surely happen after the menopause. But I don’t want to wait that long. I want to look like a woman NOW. Please check with some authorities and come up with some words of encouragement for this. — Rag, Bone and, Hank Of Hair Dear Friend: Sorry, but Dr. Jean Mayer, a Harvard nutritionist and top authority in the field, says most thin people inherit their frames and it’s hopeless to try to fatten them up. They simply lack the “storage vaults” for fat These people often try to stuff themselves and sometimes get ill in the process but it doesn’t do any good My advice to you, and to others who are fighting the same battle, is to concentrate on good posture, stay away from clinging fabrics and tight-fitting clothes, and don’t hesitate to use a little padding here and there — especially there Dear Ann Landers: Throughout my long adult life I have collected a lot of Oriental art Occasionally I will buy a modern piece that appears old just because I like its iorm, color or texture, My prohVn is this: What do 1 sa>    so-i.jone greatly admires c~2 : my nongenuine piece:/' s'- I keep quiet, or do 1 say, "They are selling these by 'he -lozen downtown,” I want to be honesi, but I don’t want to insult people by implying they are so stupid iiiat they don’t know the real thing from the phony — West Coast Art Addict Dear West: I see no reason to tell people more than they want to know. When someone admires your collection, simply say, "Thank you.” If the direct question is asked, “Is this piece authentic?" you should, of course, tell the truth SEATTLE (AP) - For 22 years, Richard Alexander was considered mentally retarded and confined to an institution. Now he teaches the mentally handicapped. Alexander, 46, has seven students at a Seattle mental health-care facility. The agency director, Gary Hammons, says he is a phenomenal teacher. "Where professionally trained instructors have failed to motivate the mentally handicapped in such areas as simple mathematics and reading and other basic skills, Alexander has them lapping it up. ’ ’ Alexander, released from the Rainer School for the Mentally Retarded in 1966, said that as a child he suffered from an illness that caused brain damage due to high fever. He committed various small crimes. “I stole and did things I was sorry about after,” he said. “I’m ashamed of them now. “But it was not unusual to lock people up in such places as Rainer in those days, and that’s what they did to me.” A Rainer employee who knew Alexander said he was Volunteers outclass most women EDMONTON (CP) -Female volunteers are less impulsive and hypochondriacal than the average Canadian women, jays a study done for the Alberta Women’s Bureau. Volunteers are also more conscientious and less anxious, more persistent, cooperative and sociable, it says. The survey of 900 volunteers by Susan Seeord and Joyce Howarth was financed by a provincial grant of $4,000 and focused on the decline of female volunteer assistants in community programs. Mrs. Howarth said that although there may not have been a decline in over-all numbers of female volunteers, volunteers now are working in so many more specialized fields that there’s a great need for more. only mildly retarded, if at all. At Rainer he often worked 14 hours a day, seven days a week doing different physical jobs and feeding and changing patients in the profoundly retarded area. After bis release, he went back to Rainer and worked as a volunteer and tour guide. Later, he learned teaching and counselling skills in an adult education program. Alexander, who is married, has held his present job with the northwest centre for the retarded for two months.
