Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, July IS, 1971 " * ��� IF w ftv �^4^v'^^^^'^:---- -v.- "Hey this is a cinch1' '. . . but where did he go?" �d The first gallop For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor part two i Perilous peace pact is formed By ALBI CALMAN Staff Writer We approached the second day of the horse course with a little less enthusiasm and very tender, sore bodies. Peppy wasn't exactly overjoyed to see me. She even refused the carrot I brought her. I discovered quite a few interesting things about Peppy that night. I found that she hated a bit and trying to fit one into her mouth was much like taking your life in your hands. She also wasn't anxious to canter. In fact the only thing she seemed anxious to do was to get me off her back. Naturally, I obliged. So much for the second day. As the week progressed, we decided that the least we could do to keep the peace would be to accept each other. She actually turned one night when she heard me call. I didn't fall off any more, although there were several, precarious mo- ments when I was barely on. The greatest thrill came on Friday night ... we galloped. Old Peppy and I actually galloped. I was so excited I forgot just how sore my legs were. Friday night, Dee Olsen took us to a hill near the gravel road and made us trot up to the top and wait in line. One of the kids turned a little green and muttered, "he's not making me go down that hill" From where we were perched, the "hill" was a 90 degree angled fifty foot drop. Not even Dee could cajole me into committing suicide. Unfortunately, four nine-year olds on huge horses gracefully walked down. It was a matter of pride. A hasty prayer and away! Pep and I spanned that "fifty feet" in an amazingly short time. Looking up from the bottom of the hill, the sheer drop was hardly more than a comfortable 20 foot slope. What a sissy! Oddly enough, after a few days, we didn't wake up all bruises and stiff. Judi thought it might be because our muscles were so pulled it really didn't make much difference any more. I, more optimistically assumed it was because we were finally attaining that mysterious "charm." A APPLIANCES NOW OPEN in their new location at 812 4th Avenue S. (Across from Enerson's Downtown Showroom) Phone 328-1673, 328-1332 FOR THE LARGEST APPLIANCE DISPLAY IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA Federation career ivomen must attract EDMONTON (CP) - Women's organizations must be more understanding of problems facing today's business and professional women if they are to attract them to join, says Margaret Paton Hyndman of Toronto. A corporation law specialist, author and past - president of the International Federation of Business and Professional Women, she told 1,400 delegates to the federations meeting that younger women must be attracted to the organization if it is to achieve its goals for women around the world. But, she warned that for the young career woman time for joining clubs is limited. Young women today have different careers and work under different conditions than the usually unmarried business -woman of the past, Miss Hyndman says. "Many have husbands, children, jobs that require continuing education and they have civic and political responsibilities that they take seriously." In the past the pace was slower and there often was domestic help for the married professional woman. The Most Independent Man in Canada has made his little jaunt into the backwoods of Alberta, stepped on numerous toes, and gladdened the hearts of those who can return to the daily grind and say "I saw Him." Probably nowhere in the annals of the country has anyone caused such consternation by doing what he wants when he wants. It's a trait not limited to the eastern half of the family. Margaret Trudeau has caused an equal amount of surprise, usually pleasurable, by showing up unexpectedly for dinner. It's nearly inconceivable that the wife of a prime minister would casually drop in on official engagements without warning to anyone. But then, when one listens to the Calgary Liberals, chagrined over the unexpected visit of Margaret Trudeau to the Big Barbecue, i ne wonders. CertE.inly they were delighted to have the First Lady in attendance, but if they had only known ... a more gracious welcome? . . . less awkward arrangements? No, they would have sold more tickets at $12.50 a head. Pierre Elliott Trudeau is likely the first Prime Minister known as a personality as well as a public figure. Lester Pearson was a fine statesman but not a mind-stickler, especially for children. John Diefenbaker's name was against him from the beginning unless you were in a Prince Albert spelling class where you learned it or else . . . He isn't just a Prime Minister. Where he goes there's excitement, and things happening, and the worn out word, charisma still fits. People want to be on hand when he does something so they can see it first. It gets to be a bore for the guy on the other side of the fence, and everyone in public life rues the day he or she lost privacy in the pursuit of whatever it was . . . sometimes it's hard to remember just what it was. Pierre Elliot Trudeau is a man who likes his privacy. He deserves it. He needs it. When he makes it clear that he is not going to attend a reception at Kootenai Lodge at Waterton Lakes, he means it and is not going to be finagled into it by a government official who says lie is. But there's a time and a place. If the Trudeau's want privacy they may have to seek it in other parts of the world. Or maybe Canadians will have to be exposed to a few more celebrities so they don't manhandle them at every opportunity. If European royalty doesn't have to take elaborate precautions every time they step outside the door, why should a Canadian Prime Minister? If you make your living being known and in the public eye, you can't get tc& far out of it. It becomes difficult to handle a public who is already fickle, and to decide just when you want them and when you don't. Maybe the whole ballgame is at stake, but can you really turn the public off and on like the garden hose? MARIE LOUISE ALL-OUT CLEARANCE HATS Vi Price Headsquores y3 off SPRING Handbags Now Reduced .

Phone 327-5949 or 327-3609 PL111 Three governments involved in community programs Lefihbridge's community summer program, ostensibly a city project, actually involves all three levels of government this year. While the city's 1971 operating budget includes $32,600 for the program, contributions are also being made by the provincial and federal governments. The province, as it has in former years, makes an annual leadership grant to the city, a part of which can be applied to the salaries for qualified staff members in the summer program. Approximately 30 summer staff are involved this year, allowing the parks and recreation department to claim an estimated $6,000 to offset salary costs. This money, along with about $3,300 in estimated revenue from fees, will go into the general revenue section of the city budget. Federal money this year comes through the Opportunities for Youth program. Drop-in centre salaries amounting to $8,000 are being funded in this manner, although supplies will come largely from city coffers. The Conservation for Youth program is also integrated into the summer program this year. It is costing the federal government $9,200. Costs for the participants are kept as low as possible, to prevent the possibility of youngsters being excluded because they cannot afford it. Fun clubs for example, are free. A 12-day canoe trip into British Columbia costs $40. BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th St. "C" N.
