16 iriE UiHBKlubE HERALD Friday, July M, i9, 4 >T- -'j j f Buyers boo cat-skin ROME (Reuter) Buyers end fashion writers viewing fall and winter collections booed de- signer Mttashon recently for exrnbiting coats made from jag- uar skins. Italy's couturiers made an in- formal agreement this week to tor the endangered animal spe- cies from the catwalk. None of the dozen furriers to show col- lections here so far had in- cluded coats made from sported cat pelts. When Milashon presented the jaguar coats, she received a chorus of boos, and Mario Go- racti, president of the Rome fashion group, walked out. The ban on spotted cats has led to a revival for the mink coat. But designers are going all out to give mink a new look, one method being to dye it in colors which will link it with the coming winter's fashions. A typical number shown this week used no less than TO mink pelts. The price: to the retailer; perhaps double that to the client. The cost is substantially more than it would have been a year ago due to a 30 per cent in- crease in the price of skins. J, and out of town A family reception was held recently in honor of Mrs. Blanche Bond on the occasion of her 92nd birthday, with many friends in attendance. Mrs. Bond, a long-time city resident, has five children, Mrs. Mary Niven and Mrs. Julia Ewing of Lethbridge; Mrs. Evelyn Moore of Red Deer, Victor of Kelowna and Mrs. Deborah Swarts (de- ceased) of Edmonton. She has IT grandchildren and 13 great- grandchildren. Visitors in the city from Dedemsnaart. Holland, include Mr. Harm Michel, Mrs. Mar- tha Beelsman, Mrs. Aaltje Wijnhoud and Mrs. Marjge Bakker. They attended the re- cent 35th wedding anniversary celebrations of their sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Roelof Vander HuLst of Leth- bridge and the wedding of their nephew Jake and Jolane Ven- der Hulst. Sometimes, itfs just too much! Enthusiasm often wanes and is replaced by a tired and carry-me- please feeling. What one little fairgoer seems to find interesting enough to applaud, doesn't seem to do anything for our tired youngster slung over his dad's shoulder. With cniy two days left to take in the Whoop Up Days midway, these scenes will probably be repeated time and time again, as families attend the exhibition.

"The pinch pot technique is the most elementary form. You take a ball of clay, put your thumbs down the middle and pinch out the sides." REQUIRES CONTROL Next, Mr. Green shows his of whom are between 23 and 40 years to build with coils, or long, rounded strips of clay rolled between the fin- gers, a technique requiring slightly more control. Angular forms such as boxes and square bases are made from slabs of clay rolled smooth with a rolling pin and cut with a sharp blade. Then the various building techniques are combined, coils are added to boxes and round shapes are flattened. After the more ele- mentary forms are mas- tered, said llr. Green, stu- dents begin "throwing" on an electrically-powered pot- ter's wheel. which en- sures that the pot will be symmetrical by placing the clay on the centre of the wheel's surface, is accom- plished by applying equal pressure in opposite direc- tions to a spinning, rounded mass of clay. With th etfcumb and fin- gers the clay is opened into a squat thick-walled cylin- der and pulled into shape. POTS FIRED TWICE Pots are fired twice in oven-like kilns. During tae first or "bisque" firing, pots are made bard and porous un- der temperatures up lo 1.700 degrees. After cooling, the pots are glazed. Oxide glazes, made from such metals as iron, nickel and chrome, are used as color agents and may be combined. In the final firing, under temperatures up to 300 degrees, clay and gbze become fused into glass. H the potter is enthusiastic enough to set up bis own workshop, said Mr. Green, wheels and kite can either be purchased locally or hand- made. An electrical potter s wheel costs about commercially and a manual kick wheel about An electric kiln with an inside firing chamber of 18 inches square costs about and clay, which can be re-used at any time before firing, is S? for SO Commercially prepared glazes can be purchased, said Mr. Green, but the colors are usually rather gaudy. "A bet- ter idea is to go to a book or a potter, pick up glaze recipes and mix your own chem- icals." A kick wheel can be made fairly easily for out of concrete or wood and metal, he said. While a few library books provide blueprints, "it's probably best to visit several pottery studios, photograph and sketch their wheels, then design your own." An electric kiln can be made of high-temperature fire brick for about and will be safe if properly inspected. Gas kilns, which must be larger to be efficient, cost more. "But knowledge of heat physics is a said lift. Green. A pottery, workshop in the home could pay for itself. With the increasing demand for handmade pottery in ar- chitecture and interior design and for stoneware in restau- rants, the market for selling quality work is good.

Youth fashion show part of activities The accent will youth during this evenings' Whoop- Up Days activities taking place in and, around the Youtharama building. Members of the Youth Exhi- bition Board have, planned var- ious contests for the late after- noon and arrangements have beer, completed for an early evening fashion show. Cindy Gleb, a first year board member, explained that the "wacky contests" will begin earlier this year because of the over-lapping time element. "There will be a greased pole climb like last said Cindy, "with axle greass used to make the pole slippery. "We'll be supplying cover- alls to contestants and the first person to shimmy up to the top and grab the ribbon will be given first prize." Included in the contests will be attempts at drinking the most root beer, eating the most crackers and still being able to whistle, a tug-of-war, and a watermelon munching event. "We will also have some youth board members sitting in the dunk tank comment- ed Cindy, "and it should prove tc be interesting as well as re- freshing, considering t. Ji e heat." Youngsters, teens or adults wishing to enter any of the events are asked to submit their name at the Rothman's trail- er unit or to a member at the Youtharama coffee house. The teen fashion show will be held in the coffee house at p.m., with a theme reflect- ing young peoples' clothing fads from 1873 to 1973. Members of a local teen coun- cil as well as four mate models will present stylings to danc- ing music, rather, than the usual walk-modelling. Old style costumes for the show have been provided by a costume house and will include everything from western dress to bathing suite. The action won't stop with the fashions, but will continue with a youth dance which is to take place in the Exhibition Pavilion. "We aren't having open-air dances this explained Cindy, "bscause of difficulties encountered with some bands." "It seems many of the bands are concerned with damage to their equipment, and the chance of rain is always a problem. So to make it easier for everyone, we've moved- inside and are still expecting a good crowd." Tonight, Moses will entertain the young people from 9 to mid- night; and Saturday will see Kathy and the Kool-aid Kids on the bandstand from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Nominal admission will be charged both evenings. During fee day, the coffee house is set up to offer teens and adults a "spot to sit down, relax and enjoy some time out of the sun." "We've tried to make it a quiet atmosphere, and although the cooling system could be a little better, it's been fairly well attended over the said Cinify. Films are run throughout the day with cartoons for the youngsters, "more meaningful" films for young adults, RCMP documentaries and films on past Letfabridge carnivals. Cindy remarked the, youth board meets on a regular basis through the year, and plans for an upcoming fair are begun as soon as possible. The unfortunate turnout for booth occupancy at the Youth- arama building had not been expected, according to mem- bers. "We really thought all the booths would be taken said Cindy, "but there just weren't that many people in- terested. "I guess we're all dismayed about it, but we do try and that's about all you can do. It's hard to fit it all together, and it's disappointing when it just doesn't come off right." Displays in the central por- tion of the building are simple end scarce, with an encyclo- pedia display, University of [jethbridge booth, several pin- tail machines, two poster out- lets, a commercial jean ven- ture, T-sfairt booth and an im- shop sporting brass, cot- ion and jewetery, the only ex- hibits present.

IN YOUR liTHMUDGf HBtAlD WEEKEND MACAZ1NI ROME (AP) The battle of the sexes is getting keener in Italy. Women now have taken the offensive, verbally at least, claiming that their Latin part- ners are lousy lovers. And men, reports writer and marriage counsellor, are undergoing a virility crisis. Giorgio Bifeffi, author of Cul- ture and Sex and a marriage adviser in Bologna, says Italian men have always loved for their own convenience and pleasure, preoccupying them- selves only with conquest "But RifeOi noted in a study on sexual habits in Hal- Jans, "women have discovered eroticism end we demanding satisfaction. "Men feel uneasy because their once docile women are judging them on the basis of ability."

Fifty per cent of the faithful ones said that they had remained so only because they had never had other opportun- ities. Doxa, the principal Italian public opinion organization, said after questioning unmar- ried women that only 28 per cent of them gave marriage top priority. Twenty yean ago 82 per cent of them thought mar- riage came first.
