Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta
22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, January 25, 1975 -The Herald Family Lynne Van Luven The delicacy of 'bediquette' Sexology has given us something else to worry about. As though the average repressed Canadian didn't suffer from enough unsettling considerations, over burdened as he or she is with the explosion of recipes, panaceas and advice, all geared to better sexual performance. Now Dr. Robert Chartham has given us something else to think about. An English Dr. Chartham has tired of authoring typical treatises on sexual pleasures, positions and problems. He's taken a plunge in a new direction and is looking into bedroom manners. (Will the science of bedroom behavior someday evolve into a rigid new code of socially acceptable behavior, known as Only Dr. C. can say for sure, and he's not telling at this point of the game.) What he does say is that, for a lot of floundering marriages, sex may not be as much of a source of conflict as the manners and mores each partner brings to the bed chamber. He assigns all manner of psycho sexual motivations to bedroom behavior, suggesting, for example, that it's no co incidence which side of the bed we sleep on. He says "there is often a sub conscious sexual motivation" about which side of the bed a man chooses to sleep on." "Right handed Dr. Chartham says, "like their partners on their left because it is more natural for them to kiss that way around." It's enough to make an otherwise romantically inclined blushing would be bride mighty suspicious about who goes where in the bed chamber. After listening to Dr. C.- she might waste a lot of time looking for hidden meanings beneath the eiderdowns and' twixt the sheets.' She may wonder if there isn't a sinister power play motive lurking beneath the bed with all the lint. However, Dr. Chartham admits that women's awareness has left no mattress unturned: females no longer need to posi- tion their slumber to serve their mate's convenience. "Now that women are becoming more aggressive about sexual matters, they are having a bigger say about what side of the bed they will sleep he concedes. And they often decide what type and size of a bed the couple will buy. According to his research, a whole unexplored spectrum of potential conflict may be found in bedroom manners. The cou- ple just spoiling for a fight may pick one of the following topics (presuming they've already settled who'll sleep next to the double or twin beds, two or three blankets, windows open or shut, who gets up to shut out the light. Of course, everyone can add to the list to personalize it that's the beauty of sexual freedom. Bed mates could also battle over who, if anyone, put the cat out? Is the back door locked? The front gate latched? The coffee pot unplugged? The televi- sion turned off? You see the endless possibilities. But according to Dr. Chartham, reading in the sack is the bed manner that ruins many a cosy snuggle. And women, he says, are more prone to this nasty habit then men. Women can also go to sleep more easily with the light on, thereby further in- furiating their husbands. However, women can see better in the dark and don't awake their mates, cursing when they've barked their shins on the bedstead, as men often do. And women have more acute hearing and are more likely to awake upon hearing the burglar rummaging downstairs, says Dr. Chartham. However, Dr. Chartham has let us down. He hasn't gone so far as to solve bediquette problems by giving us some hard and fast rules like should a lady wear wrist or elbow length gloves with formal nighties? Should her mate fold back the sheets on her side of the marital couch and help her into bed, as he would into a car. Telling us that sexual politics makes for strained bedfellows isn't good enough, doctor. You've got to help us cope. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

THANK YOU.. LETHBRIDGE HAIRSTYLISTS ASSOCIATION Herald grocery price survey notes.: Baby food leads price increases By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer Baby Huey's a bit cranky these days mommy says some of his favorite foods are too expensive for the family budget. Baby food, which has long been at a stable price, was one of the leading price increases noted in The Herald's monthly grocery survey. Six tins of baby food, for- mally priced at 99 cents, now The survey of 54 grocery items carried out this week shows a increase in the total bill, to from December's bill of The survey results, while not an exact monitor of food costs, is an indication of costs of common grocery items that an average family would need regularly. A wise shopper keeps a watchful eye put for weekly "specials." Of- the items surveyed, 31 remained at last month's price, seven went down and 16 went up. In the meat department, decreases were noted in the prices of bacon and chuck roast dropping four cents to a pound and seven cents to a pound, respectively. Price increases included round steak, jumping to 51.95 from a pound; roast leg of pork, up to a pound from ready to eat ham went up 10 cents to a pound and liver increased four cents to 99 cents a pound. Fresh vegetable prices remain- ed fairly stable with an increase noted in the cost of lettuce, which jumped to 49 cents a pound from 35. The price of tomatoes dropped from 69'cents a pound to" three pounds for A four pound bag of oranges costs 89 cents, a decrease of 10 cents from last month's price. A number of canned goods increased in price. Vegetable soup climbed four cents to two cans for 47 cents; niblet corn is up two cents from 39 cents a can; Jubilee canned meat which has long been priced at 71 cents is now 75 cents; and a 48 ounce can of tomatoe juice jumped to 65 cents from 59. A ten pound bag of sugar dropped 30 cents to while a 20 pound sack of flour jumped 20 cents to Coffee and tea drinkers will be glad to hear the prices of coffee and tea, dropped to "special prices of a pound from and for a package of 120 bags from respectively. Polly Ann bread, which has been unavailable for a fev. months due to a labor dispute, is back on the shelves at ah increas- ed cost of two loaves for 57 cents from The Herald's last recorded price of two for 53 in Sept. 16, 1974. The price of a half gallon of two per cent milk jumped this week to 91 cents from 87. A pound of medium Cheddar cheese is up from last month's price of A five pound box of laundry soap jumped 30 cents to and four rolls of toilet paper climbed three cents to 99 cents. Children should run own games OTTAWA (CP) Violence in sport would be reduced sharply if children ran their own games, a University of Ottawa psychologist said Thursday. Dr. Terry Orlick told an Ontario Recreation Society meeting that a recent study showed almost. 100 per cent of 300 young hockey players interviewed did not like fighting and aggression in sport. More than 80 per cent of the children rated fun as very important. More than 70 per cent wanted to play in games that didn't involve win- ning. Pressure to score goals was a major deterrent to having fun. Children should be sitting on recreation committees, Dr. Orlick said. Ideally, they should run leagues and officiate at games. He said a seven year old once suggested that games be played backwards that when one team scored, the other team would get the point. The idea was tried with children in "a broomball game, he said. The child who scored a goal went to the opposing team and one from the other side switched, maintaining a balance. When the game ended all thought they were winners. Dr. Orlick said studies show that when a child is cut from a team because he is not as good as others, the child's self esteem falls. 'Former system not totally satisfactory' Legal aid office pilot project Business is brisk at the three week old Lethbridge Legal Aid Office, says the venture's newly-appointed community legal aid inter- viewer. Cam Humphries says the of- fice has received a surprising number of telephone calls and visits from persons seeking in- formation, Since she assumed duties Jan. 6. The located in Room 5, in the base- ment of the courthouse. The Lethbridge legal aid of- fice is a pilot project to investigate the feasibility of establishing de centralized legal aid offices throughout the province, expanding the service from main offices in Edmonton and Calgary to smaller communities, Olga Dobrowney, deputy director of the Legal Aid Society of Alberta said in a telephone interview Friday. If the pro- ject here goes the concept may be applied to other areas of the province. Ms. Dobrowney said the society felt the former system, whereby legal aid was handled through the court house (in Lethbridge's case by the clerk of court and sheriff's office) and the secretary of the local-legal aid committee, was not totally satisfactory. "It seems more practical that smaller communities with jails in their area have a community interviewer to help those requiring legal said Ms. Dobrowney. She said it was a "great hardship" for the clerk of the court and sheriff's office to be charged with all responsibility for legal aid as they have been, because of the work overload. As community legal aid interviewer, Ms.' Humphries' duties will include working in a liaison capacity away from the office setting for a good part of the time, interviewing people in hospitals or nursing homes requiring legal aid who may be unable to go to the of- CAM HUMPHRIES fice. She will assign legal aid duties to local lawyers on a rotating basis, and work in co operation with the local legal aid committee. Mr. Humphries will visit the provincial jail once or twice a month, to interview inmates, and will be in attendance at trials and hearings, to ensure people's rights are protected. She will also travel to Cardston and Fort Macleod to provide legal aid services. Ms. Dobrowney said the legal aid society expects the Lethbridge pilot project to be a year in duration, but emphasized that in the mean- time it may be superceded by recommendations from the special government com- mittee studying the whole system of legal aid in Alberta. She said the Lethbridge legal aid office will only employ one worker "to start with" but could expand later, if need was indicated. Ms. Dobrowney says in no way are Ms. Humphries' duties to be interpreted as those of a legal advisor. Her role is to acquaint people with their rights and what services are available to them. "Basically, the goal of the Lethbridge office is to give people in southern Alberta the same opportunities for legal aid as are available in Ed- monton and she adds. Ms. Humphries is no new- comer to the legal aid scene. For the past 13 months she worked with the clerk of the court and sheriff's office at the Lethbridge courthouse, handling most of the legal aid requests received. Now that she's been ap-' pointed community legal aid interviewer, she says she en- joys spending all her time on legal aid cases, without the added duties of orderly-pay- ment of debts cases and license issuance which were part of her previous job. A former Taber resident, Ms. Humphries has lived in Lethbridge for the past two and one half years. She says When she first became involv- ed with legal secretarial work, she disliked it but has gradually come to enjoy the challenge. JEAN BATYCKY Auxiliary, elects "I'm here to protect people's rights and make sure they know what options are open to says Ms. Humphries.

Dr. George Mencher, direc- tor of the hearing and speech clinic jn Halifax, said the ma; jor opportunity for deveijping normal language skills is "lost forever" if a child's hearing problems are not dis- covered by the time it reaches the age of two. Dr. Mencher is concerned with the need for testing and evaluating communication skills of all children before they enter school. He said testing of the new-born for hearing impairment should be carried out in hospitals before a baby is discharged. "One of our weaknesses is that there is no law in Nova. Scotia making it mandatory to screen children for hearing impairment as early as pos- sible. "Children may be checked for such impairment only when it becomes evident to the mother, the doctor or someone else that something is wrong." Late in 1974, Dr. Mencher was chairman of an inter- national conference on hear- ing and speech, held in Hali- fax, -and he later began ap- proaches to the medical com- munity and the government to request implementation of recommndations made at the conference. The recommndations fo- cused on the need for stand- ardization of testing proce- dures, further research and treatment and education pro- grams. Dr. Mencher noted that re- searchers found that the ratio of deaf people to population was one per Given a population of Nova Scotia had 800 residents with severe hearing impairment. Dr. Mencher says he wants answers to such questions as: Where are these people? To what degrees are they af- flicted? What type of services do they need? What services are available for them? The Nova Scotia govern- ment has set up a panel of medical specialists, including Dr. Mencher, to determine the number of Nova Scotians with impaired hearing. The group has also been ask- ed to determine the avail- ability of trained personnel who could serve in the hearing health care field, the needs regarding licensing standards and the cost of services needed. The conclusions are ex- pected to help the government decide On the feasibility of setting up a health care insur- ance program for the deaf. One of the investiga'tions to be carried out by the group is into the high cost and low per- formance of some hearing aids. Preliminary studies have indicated the average cost of a hearing aid is and the device has to be re- newed every three years. In identifying the deaf, Dr. Mericher noted, public health nurses provide a "superb screening system for school children, clinic patients and anyone requesting tests." But too often a hearing de- fect was discovered after a child had passed through those first two critical years. Dr. Mencher recommended that a screening program in- clude the "high risk" ques- tionnaire outlined at the re- cent conference by Prof. Mar- ion Downs of the University of Colorado medical centre. The questionnaire helps identify conditions in the new- born that may lead to hearing impairment. It checks such factors as genetic history, maternal diseases, infant size at birth, ear, nose and throat defects and bilirubin level in the blood. MILS MRS. JOHN GREEN 929-7th A. SI.
