Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Just Jude By JUDE TURIC greatest affliction thought up by mankind, has got lo be the infamous blind date. Blind dates are a purse, invented by the establish- ment iji an attempt to marry off those Ln our so- ciety who have fallen prey to the term 'old maid.' In every burg, there resides a local matchmaker, who through numerous devious means, manages to discover which maidens are prime subjects, and which knights are viable suitors. This matchmaker then begins to set up snares and I raps, and sprinkles about lies which are meant lo enhance the attributes of both parties, and before long, succeeds in introducing Ihe unfortunate pair. With a little help from devilish-minded friends of Ihe victims, Ihe entire ploy comes into being. In the initial skirmish, giggly hcllos are ex- changed, Ihe fella tumbles with a soggy handshake, ami if truly well informed by the matchmaker, be- stows on the girl her favorite trinket. Problem No. said cajidies, he heard panties. The drive downtown is uneventful to the point of total boredom, and includes a blow-by-blow ac- count of how In raise queen bees in a no-pet apart- ment and not get caught. Problem No. brought a sample bee. she's terrified, and hits the jar. He lets go, it breaks, and his pride and joy away into Ihe night. The restaurant is posh, very continental, and the menu is in French. He orders expertly, she waits excitedly, and re- lents to the point of thinking bees aren't that bad after all, just as supper arrives. Problem No. 3 They agreed on menu items, he thought she read French, she was fooling. Alter wading through the octopus, baby crabs and butter-dipped clams, bolh greenly agree to call it a nighl. silently thinking of four-letter descriptive ad- jectives. Problem 4 the car accident wasn't serious, so they thought, bul the other guy raised a fuss and there they were, silting in the cop-shop till 3 a.m. Finally home, she closes the door softly so Room- mate won't wake up. holds up his gosh-awTu! present, and smiles, thinking; "thank God it's see (.he creep again." Last standing Ihere. smirking, asking for a a.m. black-lace-panties-in-your-hand explanation. ,_ Thurtrioy, July 13, 1772 THE IETHBDIDGE HERALD Welfare recipients told 'work or WHAT BULL TEAMS? Noi so long ago, Gait Gardens was more dirt and hitching posts than green grass and stately trees.

They will discuss church pol- icy in four areas of concern- Canada's identity, liberation environment and future society. Rev. George Morrison of To- ronto, who succeeded Rev. Er- nest E. July as secre- tary of the general council, has said thai on identity, the church will look at "options open to us i as Canadians and sorting out the values which ought lo gov- ern our choices and Liberation would include .women's liberation, that of y onlh. drugs and liberation in 1 underdeveloped countries.
