Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THI IETHBRIDGE HERAtO Saturday, July 18, 1970 In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer VOU will never guess what is going to complete- ly disappear from Whoop-Up Days this I am jumping for joy when I say the handi- craft and baking competition. No longer will the long, tiresome rows of shriv- eled-up, dried-up pies or relishes turn your appetite completely off for hours. No more will the fly- ridden meringue-topped goodies be left to wilt in the dusty heat. Of course many of you may say this is a great loss to a community exhibition and that local com- petition is good. Still, how can you say the competition was an asset to the fair when the same women enter year after year and the class is also always won by the same people? In my opinion, a display of handicrafts such as dresses and needlework is fine to exhibit but as for competition, how many ways can an entry for the "article from flour sack competition" be designed? This year the Kaliedart Building which is west of the Exhibition Pavilion, has been completely rede- signed by Mrs. Albert (Kathy) Evins for the pur- pose of the handicraft section. The outside of the building is a panorama of color and the inside is layered in cool-greys. Small islands projecting out onto the main floor make one feel as though they are walking through a painter's workshop of palettes. Scattered at random on these islands will be demonstration-exhibits by the Sketch Club, Potters Guild, school arts program, 4-H sewing clubs, Leth- bridge Community College food department, agricul- ture extension branch, Indian artifacts, Lapidary and an assortment of other local artists. The kaliedart idea originates from the days of Egyptians when the fairs' main objectives were the seeding and exchanging of ideas. People viewing the exhibition will not only see selected samples of art work, but view first-hand the articles being made. After watching the 4-H fashion shows, one of the events scheduled, how many people have any idea what a sleeve pattern looks like or how something as simple as a dart is constructed. This will especially astonish men. Those involved in demonstrations will not only be there, for public viewing but will also bring out original ideas and encourage other people to develop natural talents. Yes sir, this particular event of Whoop-Up Days promises to be one of the best-ever since the be- ginning of the exhibition. Be sure and stop In for a peek at least. You might find yourself tempted to stay a little longer.

Located in a flat-roofed one-storey building, it has three grades, a kindergarten and nursery school, four full- time teachers and four spe- cialist teachers. There now are 63 students. But the school has no com- petitive incentives, no marks or prizes, no specialization or pressure to hurry students through childhood and into adulthood. The concept is progressive, but it is not new. The Toronto Waldorf school, the first and only one in Can- ada, was founded in 1968, but the first Waldorf school ever come into being in 1919. Emil Molt, executive direc- tor of the Waldorf Astoria Cig- arette Co. in Stuttgart, Ger- many, was convinced that re- construction of society should begin at school. He turned to Dr. Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian philoso- pher who had become known in Europe for his position on social problems and adult ed- ucation, and asked him to found and direct a school for the children of his factory workers. Successful Camp Week Leaders and guides of the 4th, 6th, and 7th Lethbridge Companies completed a suc- cessful week of camp recently, at Okeekun, the girl guide camp at Fort Macleod. Camp commandant Mrs. D. Sawicki was assisted by Mrs. J. Angus. Mrs. M. Bowden and Mrs. L. Berthiaume served as quarter masters. Mrs. G. Poul- sen acted as camp nurse. Other leaders were Chris Fazio, Kathy Sawicki, Sandy Weaver and Janet Holmes. Following two days of heavy rains, the camp settled down to a regular routine. A nature program was carried out with the campers earning thier tracker badge and working on parts of the woodman and as- tronomer. A variety of meals added to the fun, including a backward meal, where the campers ate dessert first and sang grace last, a monk's supper with everyone remaining silent through the whole meal. "What peace." The penalty for talking or laughing was scrubbing pots. Everyone's birthday par- ty, complete with cake and ice cream, was also celebrated with campers exchanging gifts which they had made from na- ture objects. To round out the week special crests were given out at a ceremonial campflre the last night. Camp ended amid cries of "see you again next year." SECOND WOMAN ON JOB MONTREAL (CP) Dr. Vir- ginia Douglas, associate profes- sor of psychology at McGill Uni- versity, has been elected presi- dent of the Canadian Psycholog- ical Association.

Within seven years after its opening in 1919 the Stuttgart school had pupils. Soon afterwards, similar schools began springing up in other cities, first in Germany, then all over Europe, then in other continents. The first Waldorf school in North America was founded in New York City in 1928. To date, there are 78 such schools scattered over four continents. The principles of Waldorf education are: the child to develop his individuality to the fullest possible extent; him an all-round ed- ucation so that as adult he can make the best possible use of his particular gifts and talents; him an education that fits his various stages of development so that inner de- velopment can stay abreast with physical development; the same teacher ac- company him through all years of grade school so that the teacher can get to know the child intimately and be a constant companion; him with people and activities worth imitating. EDUCATION TOP-HEAVY "All this is terribly impor- tant for a child's develop- says Alan Howard, a lanky, pipe-smoking English- man who has headed the To- ronto school since its found1- ing. "Why have adolescents; gone for drugs, sex, rock the way they have? Because they have not been getting an edu- cation that corresponds to their stage of growth and deeper needs. "The education we provide today is all in the head. "What have we our kids? Little walking comput- ers." A public school teacher in England for most of his work- ing life, Mr. Howard became interested in Dr. Steiner's phi- losophy when his two children were ready to attend school. They went to an English Wal- dorf school and Mr. Howard himself switched jobs to be- come a Waldorf teacher. He came to Canada two years ago to help found the Toronto school. The Toronto Waldorf school, of necessity, had to be pri- vate, he said. It has no sup- port from the public school system and has to raise funds through admission fees and special fund drives. Whatever is left after costs for upkeep of the school are defrayed is split up among the teachers. "What we are after is to let children have an education on the broadest humanitarian basis so they won't feel after leaving school that there is a lot of deadwood they have to cut out or that they have been he said. GET THEM AT BEST "We use education as a means for the pupil to find himself so he will find later that school has given him a picture of the world which is a comprehensive as possible; which has enabled him to see that basic and ultimate values are not property or position but social values." When the children enter Grade 1, they meet the teacher who expects to ac- company them through the next seven or eight years of school. He begins each day with the main two-hour pe- when the children are at their best. He keeps to one subject for three of four weeks, then turns to another. This method has two chief purposes. Every morning for several weeks UK children concentrate on a subject, for example history, English, arithmetic, geography or na- ture study. The teacher has the opportunity to go into the subject deeply and in a vari- ety of ways. After the class teacher leaves off, special teachers take over. The subjects are picked to complement the main lessons and include music, eurythmy (an art of movement based on speech and xyood-working and other handicrafts, lan- guages and physical educa- tion. Languages are taught be- cause, teachers say, the small child is a natural linguist and can readily master songs, poems and games in French and German. Grammar is left until later. SOUTH PACIFIC MEETS THE PLAINS The Polynesian Pearls, a song and dance troup operating out of Salt Lake City greeted the first bus load of Peigan Indian children at the Pincher Creek swimming pool recently. The Napi Friendship Association sponsored program, in co-operation with the Peigan Bus Co-op, buses Indian children to the pool every Wednesday afternoon.. Ac- cording to Mr. Sillito, the group doesn't rely on musical instruments but can make the appropriate music by pounding on anything handy. Mental Heal Conception Can Be Amended By Women RED DEER (CP) Walter Coombs, director of the Alberta Mental Health Associat i o n, says women can do a great deal to correct antiquated ideas about mental illness and to instill healthy attitudes to- wards it in their children. He told a seminar at the Al- berta Women's Week that people know more about men- tal illness than ever before but :we still use euphamisms to describe it." "Intellectually, no one ar- gues with the facts of mental illness. They know that basic- ally it is no different than other diseases. "But they'll still react differ- ent to those persons who are mentally ill. It's an emotional sort of thing that is difficult to control." Mr. Coombs said that plans to reduce the numbers of men- tal institutions is "not particu- larly startling." He said that health minister James Henderson wants more community participation in treating mentally ill persons, "not only treatment at the gen- eral hospital levels, but in- volvement of community or- ganizations, clubs and indivi- duals."
