Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, July 7, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Designed To Fill Gap Left By Tradiliunal Helping Agencies New Youth Centres Range From Hostels To Counselling Services By JUAN SIIAHI' CP Women's Editor Some of Canada's new-style youth centres have been set up to provide beds and some- times otto help [or the floods of young people travelling the country. Others are intended to prov- ide .a place to go for any young person, on the road or not. They range from drop-in centres that may be used by Gait School Of Nursing To Undergo Changes A joint student faculty coun- cil, to serve as a grievance com m i 11 e e, is one of the changes being implemented by the Gait School of Nursing in Lethbridge this year. The changes come as a result of the University of Lethbridee study on the nursing school's operations and several meetings with all people involved. The school will operate on a ten month scholastic year and the residence will be partially closed for the two summer months. It is hoped that a certain per- centage of the students will be employed in the hospital dur- ing the summer months. A residence director respon- sible for counselling and rec rea.ion of the students will be sought. Information exchange will be improved through changes by the school's administration and education personnel. This wil enable faculty members to have a greater involvement with de- cisions taken in the school. Ann Lander: DEAR ANN LANDERS: A good friend of ours (I'll call her Dianne) lost her husband five months ago. He was only 52. The widow is an attractive gal, a great hostess and she would make some lucky fellow a wonderful wife. There are two bachelors in our crowd, a widower and at least four eligible divorced men. They all know Dianne and like her. That's the KNOW her. If she were a new face in town they'd be ringing her phone off the wall. It's awkward to arrange a date between two people who have known each other for years. How can we go about mak- ing some of these men aware of this terrific gal who is right under their of Three DEAR COMMITTEE: If you want to make Dianne Miss Loser of 1970 just start pushing her on men who have "known her for years." The best thing friends can do for a widow is include her as they did when her husband was alive. These eligible men are aware of this "terrific gal" and they need not be reminded.

(INTERIORS) LTD. some for nothing more serious than a meeting place, to emergency centres for kids with immediate, severe prob- lems. Most centres are a mixture: able to help solve a problem, willing to wait until they're asked, but there to fill in gaps left by traditional helping ag.encies. No two are exactly alike, but the basic altitudes held by the young people who run many of them are expressed by Douglas Edwards, who with some friends has organ- ized one of Toronto's newer drop-in centres. "We wanted to do some- thing necessary, and we felt this was he says. THERE TO BE USED They had advice and train- ing from experienced people. They have financial help from a.board of education and the Alcohol and Drug Addiclion Research Foundation. They have a board of directors of people whose names can help open doors at established agencies. Mr. Edwards says their main function is as an infor- mation centre about where to find help; about drugs. He says there is too much misin- formation arcund on that sub- ject. "We don't tell anybody what to do. We didn't go into jt with the idea that we're going to help anybody. We're there to be used. "We can tell someone where he can get medical at- tention, what type of hassles he might have to go through. We can usually get through the red tape." Tile centre, referred to as 421. is staffed 24 hours a day by five paid people and 16 vol- unteers. Mr. Edwards says there are no formal training requirements for either. "You have to have your head and not come on as con- fused and mixed up. You shouldn't b.e the kind of per- son who will lay your trip on someone else. Everyone is a person. You can't tell some- one else what to do." IS TEMPORARY HOiMF, Project Ossington in To- ronto is nm by Aileen White- head. It is a temporary home for about 20 boys and girls. In nine weeks, .Mrs. White- head says they had 167 young people through the old fire hall that houses the project. It is run by a staff of profession- als and about 30 volunteers. "We call it a place to stop and think. If they run, they can mn into trouble. The ma- jority come with nothing, no job, no home. We do anything we can do to help them. When it's all boiled down, they want basically love and discipline. Mother-Of-Year For Local FOE First Honored Mrs. Mike (Josephine) Pel- runia was honored recently as Mother of the Year by the La- dies Auxiliary to the Fraternal Order of Eagles No. 2100. She is the first to receive the honor. Tils auxiliary presented her with a trophy and the AERIE presented her with an easy chair at the installation cere- monies in the Eagles Hall. Mrs. Petrunia has been a member of the auxiliary since July 1930. She was presented 'wifJi a 40 year pin. She has served two terms as president, las been auditor of the club for many years, and is the soloist ".or the ritual team.

NOTHING CATTY SLOUGH, England (AP) The 50 charter members of a women's social club formed in a 500-h o m e development arc unanimously anti-catty. They voted that any member making catty remarks about another will be expelled. YOUI! CIIOICK j You can use white or brown sugar when you arc making a soft custard sauce. The brown sugar is a good choice when you arc planning to serve the sauce with baked apples or wars. I "1 have to run a structured place. I'm a disciplined per- son, and the type coming through have justified it. Most of them seem to need a struc- tured environment. They to learn to live with one an- other." Mrs. Whilehsad is a former policewoman. Her husband is governor of Toronto's Don jai' "I see the young faces in .i-' ard th's I didn't like. There are lots of places for older people to go for help, not so much for the young." Even with her credentials, Mrs. Whitehead had trouble getting money and the fire hall from Metro council to get her project started. Some of the resistance was from busi- nessmen in the neighborhood, she says. She may see her project die for lack of continuing funds. She and her volunteer board are appealing to charitable or- ganizations. Their plight is not an uncommon one for people running such services. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes Still another variety of serv- ice is the 24-hour phone opera- tion. Vancouver has one called In-Sitc, formed by a group of students. They work with a group of volunteer doc- tors and psychologists to help people who call them. Ottawa has a summer street clinic run by medical students wilh a back-up group of doctors and professional staff to provide counselling. M o n I r e a I's Community Switchboard is run by a group of unsalaried young people and financed by donations. They operate a crash pad and are a referral service for medical, legal and psychiatric help. Saint John, N.B.. has a drug alert program organized by Dr. J. L. Melanson and his wife. Its purpose is mainly ed- ucation, but they hope to set up a half-way house or clinic some day. A report just released by Project 69 in Toronto says one problem is that too many ex- isting agencies are closed at night and on weekends when many crises occur. It says hospitals have been dealing unsatisfactorily with drug cases, sometimes because staff arc hostile to drug users. The report makes no spe- cific recommendations, but says there is a need for more service and for medical peo- ple to go where the young are, to rock festivals, for instance. Project 69. now Project 70, is a committee of police, doc- tors and social workers. It is starting z new study on the capability of existing agencies to cope with youth problems. "I'm in here...
