Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 1C TMI UTHUIDM MMAID fotvrdiy, Jonuory 11, THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Which one of those hands did your famw give me in demand to see that one working." Hm iiiiiiiii i iiiui buitpiiiiii in i minium family life by MAUREEN JAMIESON T'HERE'S something repulsive about that kid at the dentist's. Look at him scoot around from chair to chair, poking through the magazines, grinning at everyone it's sickening, that's what it is. The nurse comes for him and off he goes, into the: inner sanctum. Minutes later he's back, cheek bulging from the wad of cotton in his mouth, and the cause of the trouble proudly displayed on a bloody kleenex. Carefully he covers it up to cart home to some poor overworked tooth fairy. The going rate is 10 cents I believe, but with that gruesome looking speci- men, plus a few judicious tears, he'll probably gen- erate enough sympathy to up the ante to 25 cents. Watching him gallop out the door, you discover your name has been called at least three times and you haven't even heard it. Your tummy zooms up to your tonsils, and green and shaking, you are inexorably led to The Chair. Smiling brightly, the nurse pins a tiny cloth under your chins. Why bother, you think. There's no way that little bitsy thing is going to catch your life blood when the drill bites into an artery. In bounces the dentist smiling, smiling, smiling. Across your mind flits the thought that he's ex- actly like your Aunt Daisy. Not that he looks any- thing like her really, but she's a dentist too, and has that same terrible smile. Is there any other profession in the world, you wonder, where you have to take a full four-year uni- versity course in smiling before you graduate? he says, and you do. You can't possibly imagine that any toothache was ever so bad it could drive you to this drastic mo- ment. You must have been out of your mind, jumped your trolley wires, to have come. You can't even remember which tooth it was. If only you weren't such a jelly-kneed coward, you'd git up and git this minute! But you don't. Frozen into immobility you sit there, brain switched off, mouth hanging, waiting for your friendly neighborhood Spanish inquisitor to pick up his malignant little crochet hook and attack your molars. Finally, still smiling, he brings out his own de- praved answer to the old-fashioned thumbscrew the drill! You notice his smile has turned vicious. The whirring commences, your throat runs dry, and desperately you jam your eyes shut and pray to be transported instantly to any other place in the world. You wait and wait and wait, grip- ping the arms of the chair and listening to the faint hum of the instrument of torture. Then a sudden silence alarms you. Cautiously you squint open one eye. There's your smiling tormentor putting away his drill. he commands. That's got to be the most beautiful word in the English language. And my, what a lovely smile he has! "It's all he says. You don't really believe him, so you get out of there just as fast as you can make it. right through the selfsame door that that cute, likeable little kid galloped past about half an hour earlier.

It was the instant popularity of the program since its in- ception in Toronto In 1958 that has brought about its organiza- tion in many other cities. The program, referred to as TAB, is sponsored by the YWCA for the purpose of get- ting housewives and mothers out of the home to "take a break." It has been recommended by doctors as a form of mild ther- apy for patients who require an outlet for the tensions built up by a closed-in atmosphere and routine work. The groups are kept between eight and fifteen members to maintain an in- formal and friendly "coffee party" mood. There is a leader a volun- teer from the each group. These leaders have all participated in a YWCA training program and help TAB members plan any activities ed in. they are interest- Bach meeting begins -with a short exercising session. There Is time for coffee and conver- sation and a special feature chosen by the members: crafts, excursions, beauty hinta and community projects are a few. The meetings are held in any. convenient and suitable loca- tion churches, apartment buildings or even large homes Cost to members is kept at t minimum. There is a silver col- lection taken at each meeting to help defray expenses, but all projects are Blamed on a budget. TAB recognizes the fact that its members are mothers, too. Babysitting is provided free by the YWCA, in another room of the same building where meet- ings are held. In Lethbridge they are held at the Bowman Arts Centre Adams Ice Centre and Spanish Village Apartments, Wednes- day mornings from to There are at present only three groups in Lethbridge, but the YWCA has offered its ser- vices in helping to form others when requested by people in the community. If anyone is interested in joining or wishes to start a group of their own, contact the YWCA at 327-2284. ONE, TWO AND UP This exercise session is part of the new-to-Lethbridge Take-n-Breok program sponsored by the YWCA. Extremely popular In Eastern Canado, the program was organized for the benefit of housewives and mothers in the community. Exercises are led by Nettie Morse for the Spanish Village group, one of the three local groups organized to date. Deputy minister turns fsuper nag TORONTO (CP) Some women resent being called nags but Irene Johnson, a deputy minister in the federal govern- ment, says she'll have to be a "super nag" for the next few years. But the target of her nagging won't be her family. Instead, as one of three public service com- missioners in the federal gov- ernment, it will be directed against deputy beads of federal IRENE JOHNSON government departments in an effort to get them to give fe- male employees chances at Job opportunities on an equal basis with men.

Travel plans in full swing for students at Churchill The travel epidemic is in its the proposed trip, and they full planning swing, and those must pay a membership fee. who have the initiative and the know-how are hoping to hit the trail in a few months. The sights of the students of Winston Churchill High School aren't set low, and their target is the land of sunny vin3yards and the banks if the Seine. A tour of France is in the process of being launched, the rough spots are being worn down, and 60 students are wait- ing for the word to go. The idea for the July trip ori- ginated from a talk given sev- eral months ago on student travel in Canada and overseas. At the time, it was explained that the government is willing to supply grants to student groups for the purpose of sum- mer travel. The students, mostly mem- bers of French classes in the school, approached language teacher Nick Patson with a re- quest to start plans for a trip overseas. Since that time, they have or- ganized a group complete with an executive committee, and call themselves the French Travel Club. "The response has been over- said Mr. Patson. "and wo have a stand-by list of other students in case some drop out." All members are required to have their parents' consent for At present, it has been estimated that the cost per student will be which will include meal and accommodation while abroad. Air fares will hopefully be paid through a government, subsidy, and the adult organizers of the tour are asking from the government. "We would like to keep the cost undfir explained Mr. Patson, "but it might be difficult. We could do with any help we can get." In order to help finance the tour, the students have engaged in numerous fund-raising projects. Included have been the Sale of Christmas trees, bake sales, and bottle drives. Through their efforts so far, they have collected The trip itself will not only be a holiday, but will be "an educational experience for the kids" according to Mr. Patson. While in France, the students will be housed in youth hostels, and the tour conducted by chaperones, will see the sights of Paris and surrounding countryside. Included on the agenda are the beachead at Normandy, Notre Dame Cathedral, Palace of Versailles, the Louvre, castles of tlie Loire Valley, famous tapestries of Bayeux, and a boat tour of the Seine.
