Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, July 10, 1971 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor IT'S a busy Saturday afternoon on 13 St. N. and traffic is heavy. Motorists stopped for a red light have been distracted from the stream of traffic for a few minutes by a young man sitting on a dirt bank by the edge of the sidewalk. He's well out of the way of traffic and the ca- sual observer might think lie were just another "dumb kid" fooling around. He isn't just fooling around. He's yelling at the motorists who pass by and largely ignore, or try to ignore, him. After all we're a little too sophisticated to pay much attention to public disturbances. His face is red, lividly so. He is obviously up- set. He creates little noise in the roar of traffic and physically he doesn't disturb anyone but the scene is uneasy. It's a jarring note This young man, scarcely a man is not himselt. He is seen getting up and as the flow of traffic changes he can still be seen in the rear view mirror of the car, staggering and weaving from side to side, precariously, dangerously on the edge of traffic. It was a moment of decision. To be or not to be involved concerned concerned enough to be involved and if so, how? The most logical official and professional body to call was the Lethbridge City Police, and its youth squad. The kid needed help and was in no position to argue about it. What he didn't need, however, was the sight of a couple of boys in blue beaming down on him, no matter how friendly nor how sympathetic. He needed probably medical care but a physician, an ambulance and psychiatric help have to be au- thorized by someone, and people have been sued for less, even'in the guise of assistance. Someone else may have assisted the young man in need, but not this" someone. It was an unsettling sight, arid it still doesn't sit well with me that I did nothing. What happened to him I don't know. What hap- pens to other young kids or older persons who look as though they may need help? In the case of the former you feel like you're turning them in when they need physical and perhaps psychological care. Will they get help if you turn them in? Are you turning them in?

The camp held at the Buck- horn Guest Ranch near Pinch- er Creek and sponsored by the provincial department of cul- ture youth and recreation, teaches playground leaders how to plan an enriching and worth- while program for community children. The training course was def- initely a work session. With classes from to 12 and 1-5 in crafts,, sports, drama, music and leadership, the 41 girls and two boys weren't left with too much time for fun in the sun. Blood Reserve introduced the art of bcadwcrk during the week long cair.p and staff and campers alike became en- grossed in the creativeness of the craft nearly to the detri- ment of other classes. Phil Mistaken Chief, recrea- tion director for the Blood re- serve, gave a history of the Alberta tribal customs, and in- volved campers and visitors from the .1-0 Ranch counsel- lors camp in native dancing. Ken Budd. formerly a youth worker in Claresholm for sev- eral years, said that youngsters from rural communities fit eas- ily into the outdoor environ- ment. "It's just too he said, "that we can't bring the playgrounds out here." Mr. Budd has been with Max Gibb. the department's j three of the four camps and camp director said the training program enables the young peo- ple to provide a better service in the community with newly- learned skills. The young leaders were fully- aware of the importance of community involvement. Most of them said that their com- munities supported recreat i o n programs, hut close liaison was necessary in order to have a successful summer. In each class they were re- minded of the need to be aware said that there are rarely dis- cipline problems. "Out here they're on a natural high, they don't need he added. Mr. Gibb explained it anoth- er way. "We have few mis- takes in campers. The kids who come here are employed in rec- reation, they know they are in- terested in it and usually they have shown some ability to work with other, younger chil- dren." Women shocked at attitude of Edmonton men EDMONTON (CP) The attitude of some Edmonton men has shocked some of the foreign delegates at the International Federation of Business and Professional Women's convention. Delegates from Seadina- via, where women have equal status with men, were asked by one taxi driver: "Don't you think you should be home looking after your Maija Heino of Helsinki, a member of the Finnish par- liament, asked Ethel Wil- son, a member of the Al- berta legislature, during a panel discussion if this was typical of the attitude of the majority of Canadian men to women. "Not the re- plied an embarrassed Mrs. Wilson. Evaluation studies of the pro- grant show that recreation lead- ers tend to come from fam- ilies of at least two children, and in drama and games they showed that they were not for- getful of the whims and thoughts of the younger child. Mr. Gibb pointed out that the department pays the salaries of about 80 per cent of the play- ground leaders so the cost to the community is negligible. Playground programs do not need to be highly structured, suggested Mr. Budd. He said that if children can feel free to drop in to the playground without having to register, with- out having to be present on cer- tain days, it is a more satis- factory arrangement. Playground leaders said the crafts and music would be es- pecially useful in working with 10-12-year-olds. Crafts included paper mache, plastic bottle de- sign painting, pasting, and nu- merous art forms. Barbara Day, crafts supervi- sor said that children younger than six cannot handle crafts and games and other activities must supplement the program for them. Other instructors included Dr. Jim Day, of Uie University of Lethbiidge's physical educa- tion department, in leadership; Barbara. AValker, in music and AVi'lMe Mathis in drama. Concluding this week was a program for Indian playground leaders also at the Buckhorn Ranch. Training programs are sponsored by the department at a number of poinfs throughout the province to provide leader- ship in youth activities design- ed to meet a community's needs Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read tils letter about the deaf girl who is bemg spoiled rotten because everyone in the family caters to her, 1 knew I had to write to you about my wonderful brother. Bobby was also born deaf. My folks didn't realize it for quite awhile. When he failed to respond like a normal child they took him to a clinic to be tested and discovered he had no hearing whatever. Mom then signed up for a course through the mail on how to teach Boom- to speak. She also taught him to use his eyes so he would be acutely aware of every- thing that was happening around him. When Bobby was 18 he graduated from the Philadelphia School For The Deaf and was valedictorian of his class. He made many friends there and you'd have to go some to find a happier or more productive bunch of kids. They are all trained in a vocation that will enable them to be self- sufficient and self-supporting. This would not have been pos- sible had thsir parents not recognized the need for training early. I hope you will print my letter so other parents of deaf children will see it and do likewise. Proud Sister DEAR SISTER: What a heartwarming tribute, not only to your brother but to your parents. Whenever I hear about the achievements of a person who is deaf 1 am reminded of the comment by Helen Keller, who was both deaf and blind. I asked her which she would choose, if she could, through some miracle, have one of those seiL-.cs restored, Miss Keller re- plkd. "I would choose the ability to hear, because experi- encing sound is more vital to a full life than sight." V DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son is marrying a fine girl who tomes fsom a family that lias nothing. The girl's mother called yesterday and asked me to send a list of our relatives "Only she said. "No cousins." I asked about friends. She said she is sorry they must stay within a limited bud- get. "No friends." 1 asked if we could pay for the extra guests ourselves. She said, "No. We will have only what we can af- ford." Ann, we are very disappointed. What should we Yonkers DEAR YONKERS: Abide by her wishes and be gracious.
