By PAUL ANDEItSEN Herald News Service CLARESHOLM Mr. and Mrs. Greg Newman and son Jonathan are leaving their na- tive home town of Claresholm because "people don't seem to like us." "We get hostile stares when we appear on Claresholm streets and old friends don't even answer any more when we say 'Hello.' Greg says one woman al- most crashed into a telephone pole when she couldn't take her eyes off them. This week a truck stopped and the driver motioned Greg over. The party had been dunking and proceeded to in- sult him in the usual manner saying, "Oh I'm sorry sir, I thought it was two women." Jean also says "We can just feel the hostility when we walk through the streets of town one can feel the stares of per- sons behind .when people think we are out of earshot we often hear such remarks as: "Is that a girl or a Isn't that "Look at that hairy ape." Their troubles seem to have started shortly after they were married in July, 1968, while he was employed at the Alberta Hospital. "I let my hail' grow a bit longer than my fellow workers, not real long, but after a few months I became aware of a certain amount.of hostility. It finally bothered six of these men lo tho point of physically dragging me to the floor and cutting my hair with a pair of barber's clippers. I was fir'ed from the hospital in August of '69 for very vague reasons." "I then went to work for the Town of Claresholm on the curb and gutter crew and later on the garbage truck. As my hair grew longer and longer I would get reminders from fel- low workers that they didn't approve but I was never once threatened." HIPPIE OUTFITS The family moved to Van- couver for the where long hair is more 'acceptable. "We made many friends and found people to be most genu- ine and kind, says Jean, but we found it difficult to get steady work." This last Spring they return- ed to Claresholm, complete with the latest Hippie outfits. "People wouldn't speak to us and we were generally given the cold shoulder." The town did hire Greg back on to the public works crew but foreman Bill Ryning told him "You'll have to get your hair cut, you know." For the next few days he worked cutting grass at Ihe cemetery and helping on the garbage truck. Mr. Ryning again told him "you'd better get your locks shorn this week- end." The following Monday he re- toned to woik with all his hair. When Mr. Ryning spotted him he said "I thought you Gibb Family Reunion Set For Aug. 3 TAEER (HNS) The annual reunion of the John Lye Gibb family has been set (or a.m. Monday, Aug. 3, and will be held at the provincial park at Woolford, weather permit- ting.

Heading the committee for reunion arrangements are J. L. Gibb of Raymond and Wayne Gibb of Picture Butte. were going to get your hair cut this Greg replied, "Well I'm not going to." The foreman pointed to the door and said, "Good Greg went home. He said it was most humiliating to be fired in front of lu's fellow workers. "Ther'e are some people in Claresholm who don't really care how you look or dress but they are few and far between. The majority think and act like their neighbors because they are afraid what everyone else might think if they break the routine or1 do anything dif- ferent. This to me is very says Greg. "People were made with minds of then- own and it's about time they start- ed using them." He feels hair is a personal matter! and he prefers to wear his long even if he has to move his family to Vancouver to do it.
