Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Teacher-Pupil Love Shown In Toronto Public School TORONTO (CP) The Fle- mington Road public school in North York has become known as "the hugging thanks to a unique experiment. It began last September when Principal Jim Montgomerie gave instructions for teachers to show warmth, love and under- standing to the children. Dorothy Hart, school guidance counsellor, said: "It was the first time I'd ever heard a prin- cipal come out with a lov- ing, Christian, charitable atti- The project, in which touching Bf hands and hugging is a com- jn o n classroom occurrence, aroused concern among some parents when they heard of it first on an educational televi- sion show. "I don't want strangers hug- ging my said one mother. "We don't employ said the principal at a meeting between staff and parents held to outline the project. Teacher Edith Forsythe told parents that she'd always be- lieved that "you can't teach children without love." "I think its possible to love every she said. "Some- times it takes a long time, but you love people for themselves, not for how they behave." Teachers like Mrs. Forsythe have always shown affection to the children, said Mr. Montgo- merie. What he did was make it a matter of school policy, breaking, down the old profes- sional maxim that it's a mis- take to get too Involved with the children. Reserve teacher Candy Youn said she felt "there are horribl risks in becoming totally in volved." LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD.

Abortions Not' Criminal Say Women HALIFAX (CP) The Cana dian Federation of Business am Professional Women's Clubs ha endorsed the principle of remov ing abortion from the Crimina Code, in a resolution passed at the closing business session o the biennial convention here. Margaret Ashdown of Toron to, retiring president, told the convention the motion woulc not be debated on moral grounds. She said after the meeting the resolution had been discuss- ed extensively by the board, whose members felt abortion should not be considered criminal matter. They also thought that a woman, as a person, had the right to decide whether she would have an ab- ortion. The convention decided to send a telegram to Prime Min- ister Trudeau asking him to fill Senate seats with at least one woman from every province for which Senate vacancies exist. The federation also decided to ask the federal government to make provision under the In- come Tax Act so that interest received from municipal deben- tures will be subject to a 20- per-cent tax credit to encour- age investment in these deben- tures. Eliz a b e t h Vaughan of Syd- ney, N.S., said allowing a tax credit would create a demand for municipal debentures so that financial houses would bid higher for them and municipal- ities would gain. The next biennial convention will be held in Toronto July 8- 13, 1972. ivina HIDDEN In beautiful blossoms and sweet smells, some of the planls In this local garden may be fatal to an innocent but curious child.

It.seems the women on my mother's side all have babies long after they should have given up that sort of My grandmother started it by giving birth to twins a year after I was born. So now I have a couple of uncles' who will be enrolling in my high school next fall. Ma makes me call these little squirts "Uncle" even though they are a year younger than I am. I think I'll croak first. Please help me by printing my letter and stick- ing up for me. If ever a fellow needed a friend I do. In Harrisburg DEAR HASS: You don't need a friend. You heed a sense of humor. It should be fun to call those little squirts "Uncle." Do it at every opportunity and soon you'll be en- joying the joke like everyone else. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Last Januray you printed a letter on Bed Hopping. It was from a girl who was overly nice to men. She imagined herself in love every three weeks. She fell into bed with every man who said a kind word to her. Of course she ended up sleeping with1 half the town. I tore out that column and showed it to my daughter. Did she read it? She did not. She read the first two lines and tore it up right in front of my face. My daughter is 19. She is so immature it kills me. The girl doesn't know the first thing about men. After the second date she goes out and buys her current "love" expensive presents and smothers him with attention. She has no pride, no dignity, no judgment. I know she's sick but she won't see a doctor. She says she is very happy with her life and I should not try to impose my standards on her. Maybe she is right and I am wrong. She is in perfect helath and I'm a nervous wreck. What can I do? -Worried In Middletown, N.Y. DEAR WORRIED: You can do DOthing for her but you can do something for yourself. Accept the fact that your daughter is out of reach. It is impossible to help a person who refuses to admit she needs help. You say she's in ex- cellent health physically, perhaps, but emotionally she's plenty sick. If you need therapy to help you handle your anxiety, get it, And let's hope your daughter will seek help, too. to decorate their parks and gar- dens. Seed and nursery cata- logues rarely warn of the pos- sible danger of plants grown for their beauty. Many plants containing poi- sons, must be eaten in large quantities before there are symptoms. A grown man would have to eat ten tunes his weight in carrots or celery at one sit- ting before the vegetables would harm him. The poisonous substance may be in the whole plant or only in one part such as the root or seeds. Children playing a game of survival along a river bank may eat a root. It may be water hemlock and the children would innocently die in agony. Babiss instinctively put new objects they see into their mouths. One small berry could kill instantly. Even sucking nectar from some flowers could prove No longer can people walk through woods or forests and just be on the lookout for poison ivy or stinging nettles. In cases of suspected poison- ing the first thing suggested by some authorities is to call the doctor immediately. The pa- tient should be kept quiet and warm hi bed. In instances of plant poison- ing it seems advisable to induce vomiting but only if the patient is conscious. If the plant in- volved is unknown, samples of Vomit and stool should be kept for the doctor's inspection. Below are listed some of the approximately 700 common plants and their parts known to be poisonous: All parts of English ivy are poisonous and will cause aller- gic people to react as most peo- ple do to poison ivy. The bulbs of the hyacinth and narcissus cause vomiting and diarrhoea and may be fatal. A child may be killed bv one leaf of the daffodil or poinset- tia.

E, Brown of Glendora, Calif., are visiting the latter's molhef, Mrs. W. H. Grunewald and other relatives in Lethbridge and district. They are accompanied by their chil- dren Ronald, Tom, Brian and Janice. The Inner bark or tissue of the black locus trees is describ- ed as tasting sweet somewhat like licorice but is toxic. Box, apopular evergreen hedge plant contains a poison in the leaves which affects the ner- vous system. All of tiie six alkaloids found hi the foliage and roots of the bleeding heart have a narcotic effect and are fatal in large amounts. Mental confusion and Irregu- lar heart beat are caused by the leaves and flowers of the lily-of-the-valley. Both children and adults have died from eating the berries of mistletoe. Raw or cooked leaves of the rhubarb cause convulsions, co- ma, followed by rapid death. Cyanide is released by the twigs and foliage of wild and cultivated cherries. The raw caster bean or seeds are powerful poisons. Although many children have eaten cas- tor oil which is extracted from the bean, it is processed to rid of the poison. All parts of the Jack-in-the- pulpit contain calcium oxalate that causes intense irrita t i o n and burning of the mouth and tongue. The digestive system may be severely injured by all parts of the buttercup. The underground stems of the iris will cause severe but not serious digestive upset. Many children are poisoned each year by the seeds and pods of the wisteria plant. A few berries of the daphne can kill a child. All parts except the berry of the Elderberry cause nausea and digestive upset. Children have poisoned by using the stems for blowguns. Laurels, rhododendron and az- aleas including all parts may be fatal and produce vomiting, de- pression, difficult breathing and coma. The four-o'clock which grows quickly into a three foot high herb has poisonous roots and seeds. One cup of apple s e e d s will kill a grown man.
