Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Hendoy, July 1970 THI tITHBRIDOl HKAID It Geared To Help People In Trouble New-Style Services For Youth Across Canada By JKAN SHARP CP Women's Editor One of the ways in which UK generation gap show's is in services for the young. Today's 13- to 25-year-olds distrust tie tonality, ques- tions and attitudes at an es- tablished aid agency. Those agencies in many cases are bound! by the red tape that ties up tlifiir money, by laws they cannot bend and occa- sionally b y unsympathetic staff attitudes. New-style services are ap- pearing to fill the gap. They are drop-in centres, soup kitchens, crash pads, informa- tion centres, clinics, tempo- rary homes. They are geared to help young people in all kinds of trouble, including trouble with drugs. They are geared to help young people in no par- ticular trouble, but in tempo- rary need of a bed, a bath and perhaps a job. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press indicates the services cannot be neatly compartmentalized. They arise out of need and do what they can. A grapevine among the young makes them known awl even ties them in a loose sort of network. TAKE TO THE ROAD The network is important because of the thousands of young people taking to the Nroad, especially during the summer. Some have run away, some are looking for work, some want to see the country or "find themselves." Winnipeg estimates vary from to on the number of transient youth who wifl go through the city this summer. A welfare plan- ning council survey done last year indicates the travellers spend an average of 2.2 days in the city. A Halifax transient centra set up by a youth society provided accommodation for 519 people in the summer of 1969. Average age was 18, but live range was from nine to 30. The society is looking for funds this year- These young strangers in such numbers are a source of worry to many towns. A Ca- nadian Welfare Council report on transient youth suggests it .often arises from the fact that they are not indigent vagrants in the traditional sense. It says many are middle class, could work, but see no reason why they should. The result is often a resist- ance to providing help in any but unacceptable form, atnd sometimes semi-official har- assment. An editorial in the Barrie Examiner expresses what some people in tot Ontario resort town felt when a local youth group, Embryo, asked the town council for part-time use of a town recreation build- ing as a drop-in centre. COMPROMISE ASKED "Local adults fear that a drcp4n centre would be an invitation to transient youth to stop over in Barrie on their journeys to wherever it is that young people with then- shaggy hair and sleeping bags are going." It suggests council should find a compromise with local young people. A report from Banff, Aita., says the town has made no provision for tihe young people who flood there- They sleep in the woods or anywhere else they can. The .report says shoplifting reached record levels last summer and attri- butes it to young transients stealing food. One spot in Banff where these young people are made welcome is in the Unsquare Cellar in Bundle United Church. A drcp-in centre, it recorded visits last 4-ami Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I feel like big fool writing to you because I honestly don't know how you can help me. Here goes, anyway. I'm girl of 16 who finally got mom to buy me contact Mms after two whole years of begging. They are expensive and there many things we needed worse in the family. Well, I have been wearing my lenses for two months and loving every minute of it. Last week I dropped a lens while trying put it in. I was.sitting on the bed at the time I called mom and my little brother to help me find it. We searched for 15 minutes and mom finally shook it out of the pillowcase. She was 'very annoyed and told me if I ever lost a lens keeps she would not replace it an I'd have to go back to wearing glasses. Well, last night I went to take my lenses out and one was missing. I have no idea when it fell out or where it is. I'm half crazy from searching and it's nowhere in sight. If I have to go back to glasses, I'll just die. Do you have any suggestions? DEAR CY: Look in your eye. Carefully, I mean. The lens 'might have slipped way over to the corner way up, 'or way down. If you can't find it, ask your doctor to check the eye before you give up. If the lens is not in your eye, you must assume it is lost. Tell your mom and offer to help pay for the replace- ment out of your allowance, sitting money or by doing without something else. summer. It has an sub- sidy from the national United Church of Canada-. In some areas, community support is coming. Vancouver's Cool-Aid is de- scribed by Ray Chouinard, who runs it, as a social action centre. It offers temporary housing, meals, a list of per- m a n e n t accommodation, a clinic. Mr. Chouinard says they hope to expand then- new co-operative housing scheme and medical clinics and event- ually to open a shop to sell things made by youth in the drop-out culture. After a history of efforts to close it down, Cool-Aid now has a federal grant promised are! the city is subsidizing similar efforts by established organizations.

Mrs. Kikoak said that she didn't think she would be able to finish it in time be- cause she has 10 children. The Kikoak family, however, provided a design that was completed at Team Products. The dress is cut in what is described as "traditional pMns Indian style" with fringes hanging about two incit- es below the knees and fringes at ube bustline and arms. It has a mandarin style neckline and a slightly tapered1 waist. It wiS be presented to die Queen by Chief John Tefliche, leader of Hie Ixjucheux Indian baud at Fort MacPhere-an, N.W-T., and a member of the N.W.T. legislative council.

Cen- tennial. provide hostel and youth centre- The mine-mil! union has provided a barrack at a recreation area five miles out of the Ontario city for tran- sient youth, and a downtown church has provided the prop- erty for a youth centre. Townspeople are working with both. The Calgary Youth Aid Centre Society will operate a summer youth hostel in a church ball. They have from the city, the province and private organizations. Director Bill Dixon it is designed for 75 boys and 25 girls but may take 300 at times "if nctody complains." In common with most oth- ers, the hostel will have coun- selling available for people who want help, and rules against drugs or alcohol on the premises. The House of Zodiac has been running in Regina since May. like many such centres, they move people on after three days. They offer food and bare mattresses at no charge, have relied on do- nated food and money and are hoping for provincial help. In Ottawa the mayor's com- mittte on youth runs a hostel in a school gym. It hopes to repeat last year's feed-in centre this summer. The centre charged 60 cents a meal and was reimbursed under Ontario welfare legisla- tion for eaters who couldn't pay- The Central Y in Toronto has a 68-bed Stop-Over that offers bed, breakfast and a shower far 25 cents. John Britton, who runs it, says he was turning away 30 people a rc'gjit in June In nine days 285 different pecple slept there. The same sort of setup is being organized by the YM- YWCA in Edmonton with help from the province, Mairgaret Hart of the na- tional YWCA in Toronto says the Ys want counselling serv- ices available in such hosteb, and feel it might be useful to have legal and medical help on tap. They have had to deal with vagrancy and trespass- ing charges, drug charges, the possibility of violence, and a tangle of welfare and juvenile legislation. "Too often young people who are under age have been returned home. We've uncov- ered some serious problems that mean returning them home is not the answer. "That's one of tile reasons we need back-up services. It's really tough for some of these kids to trad out what their status Is."
