Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 24, 1972 r Japanese dancing service staged for garden visitors JAPANESE FOLK DANCING Visitors to the Nikka Yuko Japanese style, beauty and grace. The dancing was part of the Obon service Gardens yesterday, were treated to several folk dances, performed with held by the Honpa Buddhist Church. Unique school for blind began as basic braille course WINNETKA, 111. (AP) Richard Kinney has composed several books, but he can't write his name. He's met nu- merous world leaders, but he's never seen them. He has an eight-year-old son, but he's Beyer heard him. Kinney, 40, a widower, has been deaf and blind since boy- hood. As a teen-ager he remembers weaving pot holders for 25 cenls each in East Sparta, Ohio, futile years in high school and a small magazine subscription service operated out ot his home. Today he is a worldwide lec- turer, pedagogue and poet, serv- ing as executive director of the Hadley School for the Blind-the only school of its Kinney credits for helping him rediscover the world. The Hadley School, like Kin- ney and many of its students, invalidates the cliche that the blind leading the blind is futile. More than half of its 60 teach- ers are sightless and, including Kinney, two can neither hear nor see. HUMBLE START The school started humbly with a basic braille course taught out of the living room of a Chicago high school teacher who lost his sight after more than 30 years in the classroom. It now operates out of a mod- ern, two-storey brick BINGO Monday, July 24th JACKPOT NO5.

Hadley is the only correspond' ence school for the blind in the world and tuition is free. Kinney answered questions put to him through an inter- preter who tapped out the silent sign language of the deaf in the palm of his hand. He spoke loud and clearly.

MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS BRENDA'S BEAUTIQUE BEAUTY SHOP 922-i Ave. N. Phone 32B-7346 DEAR ANN LANDERS: Several days ago a bus hit our car. We had to get two estimates for repairs to satisfy the in- surance company. After waiting a week for my husband to fill out the forms, he finally exploded at the dinner table and said he hadn't filled out a form in ten years, hated to fill out forms, and was going to ask his boss's secretary to do it for him. I told him it was a "family" job and if he didn't want to do it, I'd be happy to. He gave me a curt answer that made it quite clear that he didn't think I had enough brains to fill out the form properly. One word led to another and before I knew it we were having a big fight. I have my personal reasons for not wanting my husband to become involved in any projects his boss's secretary. I told him so in unmistakable lang- uage. He called me "insanely jealous" and a few other things. Do you feel a wife has the right to protect her marriage against what she considers "dangerous elements I'd like your advice. Pa. DEAR AM: A wife does indeed have the right to protect her marriage against "dangerous but your ap- proach was not protective, it was destructive. The sure way to drive a husband into the arms o[ another woman is (a) constantly checking on him, (b) bombarding him with accusations, and (c) letting him know you don't trust him worth a darn. A husband has a way of living up (or down) to a wife's opinion or him. Some mun figure so long as they have the name they might as well have the game, and they go ahead and get into mischief they never would have thought of on Iheir own. DEAR ANN1: My husband and I work in Ihc same building and have lunch together nearly every day in the building's cafeteria. For several weeks now a certain secretary manages to bo right behind my husband and she is full of small talk. She leans on him, suggests certain dishes, discourages others and has entirely too much to say. I asked my husband who she is and he says he doesn't know her name or where she works. I believe him 1ml she still makes me uneasy. T feel like a hypocrite being pleasant to this mouthy broad. She really spoils my appetite. Should I stop being two-faced, and tell her DEAR IRKIiD: The ideal solution would be to find an- other place to eat. If Ihis is not convenient make up your mind to keep smiling or you might create a problem where none exists. SIMPSONS-SEARS SEWING MACHINE RENTAL Lolt of mending to do? A wedding soon?

By CA.TIIIE HETI Herald Staff Writer The night air was still, in the oriental meditative garden, viewers sat on the grass and watched girls performing na- tive Japjiiese dances. Between 40 to 50 women and girls told stories with their hands as they danced. Dancing is a circle, they were colorfully drassed in imported kimonas. The Japanese dancing took place at the Nikko Yuko Jap- ne e gardens Sunday as a pert of the Obon service held by the Honpa Buddhist Church of Alberta. This service is held once a year to commemorate all liv- ing things that have died, and takes place at the gardens. The dancers consisted of Honpa Buddhist church mem- bers from Raymond, Leth- hridge, Coaldalc, Rosemary and Picture Butte. Within half an hour, several dances were performed by the group with the general pub- lic was invited to watch. The Obon Odori is a religious dance especially for Uie Obon ceremony. At the end of the perform- ance, anyone watching could join- in with the dancers and dance to Tanko Bushi, a folk Artificial kidney machines help rehabilitate patients TORONTO (CP) Ontario has 28 persons keeping them- selves alive at home by operat- ing their own artificial kidneys. More than 250 persons un- dergo a machine to clean their blood afler chronic failure of the kidneys. According to statistics from the Toronto General Hospital, which has trained the 28 home operators, 70 per cent are able to hold jobs. About 20 per cent have been partially rehabilitat- ed for work, while the remain- ing 10 per cent cannot work. Home treatment consists of having the surgeon join an ar- tery and vein under the skin at the wrist to allow the insertion of two short, thick needles at- tached by tubfej to the artifi- cial kidney machine. Dials on the machine enable the patient to check the flow of blood into and out of himself. Officials say it is a psycholo- gical boost for the patient and also saves everyone money. It costs up to a year to maintain a patient on dialysis in hospital. At home, the cost is cut to One of the hospital's typical at home patients is Ronald Church, 25, a Midland cost ac- countant, who holds down a 9 a m.-5 p.m. job. Six months after his mar- riage in 1968, he was stricekn with glomerulo nephritis, an inflamation of the kidneys for which there is no known cure in adulthood, and his kidneys had to be removed. He was the third candidate in Ontario for home treatment when he started it in January, 1971. Now he lives an almost-nor- mal life. Last year he bought a three-bedroom bungalow. When he was scricken. He was told he and his wife probably could net have a family, but now there is a baby on the way. WeelVhimsv dance which means coal miner's dance. Through hand movements, the dancers depicted the life of a coal miner. First he'd be dig- ging the coal. Then lie'd throw it over his shoulder. When he had the cart full he'd push it. And finally he'd wipe his brow. The dancers in the group varied in age from small girls to older women. After the dancing was fin- ished, tours of the garden were taken by most persons who watched the dancers.
