Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Frdioy, July 2, I97J New graduates to promote interest Education for close family relations EDMONTON (CP) - As society becomes increasingly impersonal, there's a need for the closer interpersonal relationships of a good family life, says Dr. Dianne Kieren. "Unfortunately, we don't take much interest in educating people for a good family life," she added. Dr. Kieren is trying to change this. She's chairman of a new family studies division in the School of Household Economics at the University of Alberta. The division will prepare a new kind of graduate, one who will be concerned with the promotion of family relationships all through life, she said. There's a need for this kind of person in almost every institution and agency in the community, she added. However, the actual jobs for these persons often aren't defined. "It seems to me there's al-wa}'s a lag-the need comes first." For example, she said, there is a need for someone who knows how to help families adjust when one family member is in hospital for a long period, either with a general illness that will have permanent effects or with a mental illness. A home economist with a family-life background could help the family to be ready and help change family routines so the ill person could return more easily. Dr. Kieren said this kind of worker has a different role from a social worker or counsellor. "But the need exists. Some agencies have hired home economists and given them counselling courses so they could fit into the multi-disciplinary community services that are developing today." The university now has taken the initiative in setting up a program, but graduates will have to go out in the community and convince employers of what they can do. Dr. Kieren said students are told when they are considering the family studies major that jobs may not be available and that they will have to "make their own." "We've had favorable reaction from the provincial and city agencies that we've approached to help provide community experience during the course. And we expect these agencies will be interested in our graduates. "But we don't make promises about jobs." The four-year program, offered for the first time this year, will provide both male and female students with a good general education background and with specific courses relating to family life problems and solutions. Dr. Kieren, who has a PhD in. social science and child psychology from the University of Minnesota, sees family needs as changing with society. There is the extension of community institutions into former family functions, she LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By ALBI CALMAN Carleton University {TVE me half a chance and next year's tuition and living expenses and I'd be off on the highway, thumbing anywhere. After my first taste of hitchhiking at university, I'm hooked. My short 300 mile jaunts were adventures and of course, it was silly to pay bus fare in the citv when it took half the time to hitch down Ottawa's Colonel By Drive. There's no other way to travel, if you can take the waiting in freezing winds for hours, flash storms, and lot of walking and freight drivers (most of them are nice though). What bothers me about hitching is the name you get because a few teeny boppers show absolutely no consideration for public property or act like the world owes them something just because they're breathing. Hostels are necessary. It makes sense to have a place for transients rather than let them sleep in the parks. As long as there are hitchhikers, it is in the public interest to keep these kids off the streets. However, episodes such as the protest in Calgary a few weeks back annoy me. Just where do these kids get off coming into a city where they are lucky enough to sleep in a hostel, march on the city hall and demand food. To make matters worse, the mayor, who seems to be running for "Mr. Nice Guy 1971" gives it to them. On one hand, they condemn cities for their capitalistic greed, etc., etc. and on the other, they're whimpering because the impersonal money - hungry cities won't feed them. The situation in Cal g a r y puzzled me from then on. I echo the Calgary aldermen's queries as to where the money for the sandwiches fed to the "poor hungry kids" came from. Surely Mayor Sykes didn't spend public funds to feed a bunch of whining brats. To make matters worse, the kids had the nerve to say the food was okay but hot soup would have been nicer. With the freedom of travelling anywhere, by any means, comes the responsibility of taking care of yourself. If the town you've come to doesn't' provide some kind of hostel, you find your own sleeping quarters, even if it means asking for the local police for shelter. Surprisingly enough, the police are usually considerate. If you haven't got food and are short on money, it's your problem to find some way to eat. As far as I'm concerned, these babies should stay at home in their cribs and depend on their mommies to feed them warm bottles every two hours. All they're doing on the road is taking up space, making fools of themselves and giving everyone else who is hitching a bad name. (The views voiced in the above column do not necessarily concur with either those of The Herald or Leister's, but are a reflection of the student's opinion.)

Elderly family members are left alone when the younger ones marry and move away to different communities. "How do you establish and maintain the needed family ties when all this happens?"

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am writing a letter which should be rerun in your column twice a year-every spring and every fall. These are the seasons when people enjoy hiking, camping out and exploring wild areas. It is always heartbreaking when someone does not return alive. Some of the most tragic and senseless deaths axe caused by getting lost. The following pointers could save a life. Please print them, Ann. If you are.lost, never go upstream or across country. Keep out of the thick timber and secluded areas. Stay in the open. Walk toward1 the areas where the light is brightest. Carry a whistle-and use it. Build a fire; searchers can see signs of a fire miles away. It is not a disgrace to g&. lost. It has happened to the best of them. Should you become separated from the others, remember these pointers. They might save your life. And good luck.-E. K. of Wyoming DEAR E. K.: Here are tire pointers and my thanks for sending them. Take heed, nature lovers. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 17, six months pregnant and not married. I want to put tlie baby up for adoption for two reasons. First, my parents and I-never got along. Now that I am pregnant we fight all the time. You wouldn't believe the names my father has called me. I don't think this setup would be ve.y good for a baby. Another reason I believe adoption is the best thing is that I am anxious to go back to high school and graduate. After graduation, I want to get some kind of training so I can support myself. I know I should have thought of all this before I started to sleep with that jerk, but it's too late to change things. Now the best thing I can do is think of the future. What are your ideas. Should I keep the baby or not?-Temporarily Loused Up DEAR TEMP: A 17-year-old girl with no husband in sight can't offer a child much. I agree you should put the baby up for adoption. There are many childless couples who desperately want a child. It would mean a great deal to them to have a baby-and the baby would be dearly loved. Too often the unwed mother keeps her child to fill her own needs-with no concern f*w the needs of her child. 1 applaud your decision and I wish you luck. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I own two automobiles and live in an apartment building. There is no garage nearby so I have to park the cars outside. The couple who live above me has a miserable cat. They let the cat out every day and don't care what he does. This might sound a petty complaint to you but to me, it's a serious matter. That goldarn cat climbs all over the roof, the hood and the trunk of my oars and has scratched them up so bad I've had to repaint twice. I've compained to the people but they couldn't care less. They insist there is nothing they can do. The best solution I can think of is to shoot the damn cat. Can you come up with a better idea?-Annoyed In Massachusetts DEAR ANNOYED: I sure can. The law says people are responsible for the damage done by their pets. If you shoot the cat you will have to hire a lawyer to defend yourself. So why not hire a lawyer to make these people pay for the paint jobs? * * * How far should a teen-age couple go? Can necking be safe? When does it become too hot to handle?

Women get the cookie EDMONTON (CP) - More than 1,40C business and professional women from 40 countries will meet next week, and while they discuss the problems affecting the working women of the world, they'll be munching on home-made cookies. Helen Verdin, chairman of planning for the 12th meeting of the International Federation of Business and Professional Women, (IFBPW) spread the word among the Alberta's 300 members that two-dozen homebaked cookies would be welcomed from each member for the opening reception. She also asked them to include the recipe. This week, the cookies have been arriving by the double dozen. "Fragile!" "Do Not Crumble!" recmest the postal warnings on the packages. There now are more than 7,-000 cookies on hand, Miss Verdin said. And more will arrive with the Alberta delegates. When the members deliberate over a proposal from Sweden that men be admitted to membership as a gesture toward equal status, they'll be drawing on energy from fig bars, almond delights, ice box confections or chocolate rocks. The delegates will be representing more than 250,000 members from the largest organisation of working women in the world, Miss Verdin said. They include parliamentary representatives from Barba-does, Canada, Finland and India, women industrialists from Japan, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the' United States. There'll be lawyers, doctors, scientists, teachers, bank directors, f BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th St. "C" N.

BASIL'S MEN'S CLUB Dr. Kieren said she'd like to see more research done in family-life education and her students will be given some research background. An inventory of research done in 1967 by the Vanier Institute on the Family showed only 203 studies available. "And we may not be studying the right things," she said. "We don't study good marriages, for instance, but the divorce cases. Instead of finding out what keeps a marriage together, we find out what breaks it up. "We need to know the positive things so we can help people build on these to make a family stronger or a marriage happier." She added: "Parenthood is one of the roles in life we have the least education for. People assume that it's an inherent thing to be a good husband or wife or parent even when the society has changed so that your parents example can no longer be useful. The family studies division also will include courses on consumer problems and management of family resources. These are other areas where students will probably have to do some of their own research. She said there are few textbooks available, and none at all are published in Canada. "And Canadian problems are somewhat different from American ones." But then, the whole area of family studies is a new and different area, she said. love is... . . . showing her hoiv to surf cast. cwWu \m ios ANoun ruts ^jj-avnily driving AUTUMN OFFERING - Model wears a white chiffon evening dress with headpiece at show of fall designs by Stavropoulos.

Boyfriends the downfall of secretaries' work LONDON (CP) - When the love lives of secretaries go wrong, so does their work, according to a bank chief speaking at a bankers' conference. "Boy - friend trouble is the enemy of productivity," Eric Faulkner suggested. His view was supported by Bernard Maries, head of a secretarial agency. "For most girls, love life is1 more important than work," he said. Now welfare officers are on stand - by to help with emotional problems among big business staffs.
