Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-23,Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Herald fourth section Lethbridge. Alberta, Wednesday, January 23, 1974 Pages — 35 - 44 LCC course feature$ opportunities Retirement transition eased By JUDE CAMPBELL Herild Stiff Writer Bridging the gap between activity in the workday world and the leisure of retirement often becomes a difficulty for many people. Planning for retirement, a continuing educatiui course at the Lethbridge Community College attempts to easi^tte insiti    " ' ‘ transition, accordi Heyland, director in^^ucation. to Dale continu* course, which begins Feb. 4 and runs 5 consecutive Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m., is offered as a community service, with no registration fee charged.-Tlie Herald- Family Nurse prefers go-go dancing “We’T« pushing policy of getting senior cltitens involved, of bringing them out to enjoy what opportunities ave available. ” says Mr. HCTland. The retirement course is aimed at those wbo are already in retirement or soon will be at retirement age. Each of the sessions will be conducted on a discussion rather than a lecture basis and will be ted by members of the community experienced in' each field. Included will be aspects of health care the elderly should be aware of; travel, the opportunity and reasons for travelling, as well as travelling on a limited budget and comparative costs of trips. Investments will be considered, with points on how to invest wisely and be relatively secure in investments, and making use of such ventures as reliable additions to income. Hobby and gardening sessions deal with both simple h(»ne craft and inssibilities of expanding into nobby sessions offered by other agencies; whereas gardening is to include indoor and outdoor activity in the lives of the elderly and is intended to diemcmstrate home enjoyment opportunities and w 11 give pointers on landscape planning. l3r Heyland says retirement often catches many people off-guard and with a surplus of free time. “Throughout their lives, people are used to hwing demands made on their attention and then are suddenly left to create their own interest situations. “Some of them have never had to do this before and find it a difficult task. This course is meant to present options and opportunities to the retired man and woman,” he says. "We do so much for youth,” says Mr. Heyland, “and now I feel it's time to consider education opportunities for the elderly. Education is valuable as a personal experience, so why should senior citizens be left out?” A related program which falls under the community services, is a study of the world by slides. Sessions highlight points of interest in numerous countries, as well as discussing problems one might encounter, what to avoid and how to get the most out of travelling. Bus service to the LCC is provided for night courses, with buses leaving downtown at 6 30 pm. and returning from the college at 9; 30Fishy eyeful Allison Martin takes a big-eyed look at live marine wildlife during a class at the Vancouver Aquarium.

Sex therapy makes use of pornographic films PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Elsa the army nurse was the first to admit she was no Florence Nightingale. ‘*I’d rather dance than nurse. No moaning patients or bedpans.” Elsa van Rensburg, 18, w discarded h» cares and most of her clothes to a heavy rock beat. "I’ve always wanted to be a dancer. Ever since I was a little girl dancing was my ambition. But at 16 my parents signed me up for the army nursing course.” One of the other nurses taught her go-go dancing and she began moonlightiQ| two nights a week at clubs in the Pretoria suburbs. “I’ve been dancing for two years and I earned more in half an hour’s dancii^ than I Warm-up exercises help snow-shovellers’ back did for a whole month’s nursing.” The strain of two careers recently became too much. Elsa had friends and fans on the outside, however. They started arranging a discharge for her and spread the news about the go-go nurse. Army spokesmen soon confirmed that Elsa had left the service but declined to comment on the circumstances. TORONTO (CP) - Try a few warm-up side bends and deep knee bends before you go out to shovel the snow, and you may avoid snow-shovellers’ back. Dr. Leo Rosenberg, president of the Ontario Chiropractic Association, says the average shovel-load is magnified to 100 times its weight on the back. “Coupled with the fact that it’s an unaccustomed exercise, it can lead to back trouble.” He offers some tips for pain-free shovelling. Do warmup side bends and deep knee trends first. Take half shovel loads until you get in gear. Rest often. Don’t ^ to get all your winter exercise in one % Shovel bilaterally, using alternate arms. Don’t wait until the whole snow fall is over before you start shovelling. ■ Don't twist your torso while lifting a heavy load Lift with your knees, not with your back.

Ont, family gives up post office MOUNTAIN, Ont. (CP) -For the first time in 80 years the Mountain village post office, 30 miles south of Ottawa, is not being run by a member of the Van Allan Family. The family tradition goes back to 1888 when the first post office wicket was opened by Rueban Shaver. Mr. Shaver ran the post office for 10 years and then turned the operation over to his son-in-law, Sam Van Allan. From that time until Lillian Van Allan retired this fall and Ken McDiarmid took over there has been a Van Allan in charge. It has been operated in conjunction with a general store. Sam Van Allan ran the combined operation for 41 years before passing the business to his son Clair in 1939. Clair ran it for 30 years. His wife Lillian took over in 1969 She gave up the post office last fall but the Van Allans continue to run the general store.

Vandervoort, head of the school’s human sexuality program. Both commercial and documentary seirfllms are tools in the school’s sexuality attitude restructuring course. The course is for couples in counselling and for training health professionals.    . “The course is to make people less uncomfortable in the general area of sexuality,” said Vandervoort. The weekend program (qjens with a four-hour Friday night session that includes the eight sex films to “desen-siUze.” “But commercial films aren't very accurate in terms of vrtiat people really do,*’ Vandervoort said. Nine hours of a Saturday session therefore include a number of medical documentary films on sex. He said studies indicate the program is about 96-per-cent successful in helping people overcome sexual difficulties. The program staff* has just completed “our first explicit sex film,” an instructional documentary for women with sexual problems. It is the product of the 1 ^-year-old program's stated goal of making sex counselling less expensive, less dependent on professionals and more oriented to the individual. “We’re emphasizing more and more a self-help approach to solving sex problems," Vandervoort said. "A couple in counselling can go home and do homework." The counselling continues once a week for up to 12 weeks. “If we haven’t helped them in 12 weeks, they need another kind of therapy. That’s long enough to reach their goals or to realize they really didn’t want to reach them.” The counselling is not just for married couples; individuals also are accepted, mostly In groups. Groups are used increasing- WOMEN EARN MORE TORONTO (CP) ~ Labor Canada reports that during 1V70. the average earnings of part-time wonMit workers in the Yukon were 21 per cent higher than those of part-time male workers. Throughout Canada, the difference between the average earnings of men and women were less for part-time work both In large and small es-Ubilshments. ly because of the numlier of demands for help. The staff has doubled in six months and more than 500 people have received counselling. But there is a waiting list of about 75. The program, which grew out of a course for medical students in 1967, also deals with the barriers to successful sexual acUvity which confront some handicapped persons. The program exists on grants and the fees from counselling and sale of materials.
