Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, July 3, 1973 win Dungeon replaced by Faraer centre BRAMPTON, Ont. (CP) The Vanier Centre for Women was opened in 1969 to replace the 89-year-old dungeon known as the Mercer refor- matory in Toronto. Vanier is also a that's about as far as the sim- ilarities go. A visitor to the Vanier Centre probably has the im- pression he's in a middle- class boarding school rather than a correctional centre. There are no bars or high fences, little apparent secur- ity and no regulation uniform. The here as mostly un- der 25. Of the 110 currently serving detention periods, a third are teen-agers. Each resident has her own room in a "cottage" which houses 24. Part of the day is spent in a school environ- ment, part doing housework. Nearly all the residents enjoy their time at Vanier. "If you obey the rules and don't break anything, this is a pretty good one said. Among the scores of differ- ences between Vanier and the Mercer reformatory is the eli- mination of many de-huma- nizing of institutional life at Vanier, says its deputy superintendent, Mike Byrd. "We are a therapeutic com- munity here and that's the de- sign of the said the Garden contest planned Entries will soon be accepted for the annual Letbbridge and District Horticultural Society garden contest. Interested persons are asked to submit their entry to the club secretary, Stephanie Wot stoncroft prior to July 15. The competition is divided into several categories, which include commercial, frontage more than 50 feet, frontage less than 50 feet, new grounds, ve- getable garden, composite gar- den and unusual garden. Further information regard- ing submissions may be ob- tained by calling 327-0849. It is also possible to receive the August prize list from the secretary. The club extends thanks to all those who donated time, money and displays toward making the yearly projects a bearded, 35-year-old Byrd. "The most important dimen- sion of the centre's philosophy is helping people develop meaningful relationships with other people." Each cottage has a super- visor who lives in during her shift on duty and develops relationships with each resi- dent. One supervisor at Vanier, Joyce Porter, says that staff have to balance on a tight- rope when forming friend- ships with the residents. "Staff have to be careful not to let the residents In- come too dependent on them emotionally." Joyce said. "Some of them have never known a decent mother and will latch onto a mother im- age." The one common denomina- tor of all the residents is their backgrounds. "After a while you just stop reading their social his- Rhoda Weltman, pro- g r a m co-ordinator, said. "They're all the same. They've all come from de- prived culturally and emotionally." RESIDENTS HAVE VOICE Each cottage has a council to deal with minor problems and voice suggestions by resi- dents for changes in Vanier policy. One such change was the introduction of more infor- mal visits with friends and relatives. Residents are, however, searched after such visits to check for money or drugs. Mr. Byrd says the centre has had an exceptional suc- cess rate with its program. In addition to being able to up- grade their schooling, resi- dents may learn hairdressing, industrial sewing, cooking and dry cleaning. The women are serving terms for offences ranging from manslaughter to theft. Some are tough, anti-social individuals; others made one mistake. One 19-year-old resident, de- tained on fraud, theft and drug charges, says she won't do time in Vanier again. She likes to be alone and complains of the community atmosphere of the centre. "The next time, she said, "I'll ask the judge for more time so I can go to a federal penitentiary."

The council fears that rival fans visiting the city to watch a match may wreck the cabs if their team loses. CleoJuwtce!

BILL GROENEN phots Canadians given job preference LONDON (CP) Canadian and Australian office workers can usually find jobs here within hours, partly because employers find them harder- working than British girls. There has been such a shortage of secretarial skill in London during the last few years that have rocket- ed, though not yet up to the level of Canada's, and an immediate choice of dozens of positions is available to quali- fied applicants at each of the placement agencies dotted throughout the city. The situa- tion is so desperate, from the employer's view, that one such agency offers a three- week, paid vacation in Moroc- co if workers stay with them for six months. While the evening newspa- pers are packed with pleas for permanent office help, most Canadians here have discov- ered more variety and better pay "with the temporary-job agencies. The "disadvantage is the absence of holidays and paid sick leave, benefits of minor importance for those on relatively short stays. Maureen O'Brien of Toronto has been working here since January and, aside from the pay, her biggest complaint is that she hasn't enough work at the office to keep her busy. But, all in all, she is happy to have come and recommends such a working visit for other Canadian women wanting an overseas break in their rou- tine. "I think working here is quite an experience, and prob- ably the only way to get to know a city like she said. Now at her second job, found through a "temp" agen- cy, Maureen left her first per- manent position because "I was just wasn't enough to do." "The girls I've worked with are very nice, but I don't think they work as hard as us." Maureen is paid directly by the employment agency which collects its fee from the em- ployer. Her weekly cheque to- tals (about After tax and health insurance de- ductions, she is left with about which is fine as a means of supporting a lengthy stay but quite a bit less than she earned as a fully-qualified secretary back home. The manager of a large agency chain said employers prefer Canadians or Austral- ians because of their effi- ciency and the high quitting rate of British office workers means they are quite willing to hire foreigners here for only a short time. "The Canadian girls are much more flexible, while the English are more inclined to want an easy she said. Aside from the slower pace, she said Canadian stenogra- No cure for aching head NEW YORK (AP) Wheth- er the treatment is the prehis- toric method of drilling tiny holes in the skull or modern treatments such as electric stimulation and hypnosis, there may never be a cure for the common headache. "You don't expect to cure them: you expect to control Dr. Donald Dalessio, editor of the journal Headache said recently.

Dr. Seymour Diamond, pres- ident of the association and bead of a Chicago clinic with about 5.000 patients, said there might be a way to prevent headaches in a decade or so. Two other clinic heads said that in some cases, they can control headaches about 80 per cent of the time. Advanced treatment also in- cludes acupuncture and "bio- feedback technique" which trains people to control their normally involuntary respon- ses, such as muscles and blood vessels. phers would find working con- ditions here somewhat differ- ent because of generally-out- moded office equipment and a much stronger reliance on shorthand rather than taped dictation. The company's shorthand requirement is 100 words per minute with no more than five errors in the five-minute test. The major problem is hous- ing. Maureen, for example, pays a week for a single bed-sitting room which repre- sents nearly half her take- home wage.

And it's no ac- cident. Choir director Roger Ofield says he has often felt close to tears after watching his 20-odd member choir from the School for tbe Deaf incorporate their sign language with body lan- guage and facial expressions during a concert. Mr. Ofield uses recordings of the hymns to accompany the choir. He says that if a pianist is used', tbe congregation will not sing because of its fascina- tion with the sign language. "If no one is singing, the signs do not convey much meaning." As a teacher at tbe school for the last 10 years, Mr. Ofield is aware of the anxieties ex- perienced by the deaf as they are faced with challenges they are unable to cope with. As in other choirs, the stu- dents take tbe lead from their director, but Mr. Ofield has to go slightly faster than the vo- calist to allow the choir suf- ficient time to react to his di- rection. Getting ebon- members has not been difficult, though few performances see the same group of faces. Mr. Ofield says students become involved in the choir only if their study sched- ules permit them. visa which is stamped in their passports upon arrival. Nor- mally, the visa is good for six months but if the immigration officer suspects the visitor in- tends to remain here illegally he can shorten the period or add a prohibition against em- ployment. The best way to avoid such a restriction is to visit a Brit- ish High Commission or con- sulate in Canada before leav- ing to apply for a one-year "working holiday" visa. The "working" part of the working holiday must official- ly be "incidental" to the vaca- tion itself, but a home office spokesman here said the reg- ulation is applied liberally. "The idea is that you do a bit of he said, "but we know that usually they get a job that's pretty regular and we allow them to keep it for up to five years."

Hour after hour, huae brown trucks with SECURITY emblazoned across the side in gold letters drove up the se- date, tree-lined streets. The 12-room colonial field- stone house, for which Agnew reportedly paid sits on a hill covered with dog- wood trees and overlooks a shaded corner of Sunset Lane and Shadow Road.

Wage bias slammed TORONTO (CP) The Na- tional Council of Women of Can- ada says Ottawa should with- hold federal government con- tracts from firms not offering women equal pay and employ- ment opportunities. The resolution, approved here at the group's annual meeting, was submitted by Manitoba's provincial council. It also called on the federal government to establish a pro- gram to improve tht economic opportunities of women. The Manitoba resolution said "gross inequalities" in oppor- tunities for women in the fed- eral civil service illustrated the need for such a program. ca lendar of local kapper, inqi Parents Without Partners will hold a regular business meeting Friday at p.m. in Imman- uel Lutheran Church, 6th Ave. and 18th St. S.

Individual boycotting effective CALGARY (CP) Indivi- dual boycotts, rather than Srge organized ones, are more useful in combatting rising prices, president Maryon Brechin of the Canadian Consumers' Asso- ciation said here. Large boycotts only pinpoint and express consumer frustra- tion and at a tune of generally rising prices boycotts of indi- vidual items are not effective, she said in an interview. "It is up to the consumer to' look at the prices and decide what can and cannot fit into his budget And we must also' encourage the producers to pro- duce more." Mrs. Brechin said the system of price mark-ups should be studied closely, possibly by the federal food prices review board. "The mark-up that occurs int dividually throughout the chain from the producer to the con- sumer is small but it occurs so often that by the time items get to the consumer the mark- up is very large. "I cannot say who is making money. The producer and the consumer are almost on the same level of interest, except that the producer is in busi- ness. "Costs for producers go up as costs for toe consumers do." WOULD YOU TAKE ON YOUR OLD VAC IN TRADE? HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
