Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD _ Saturday, July IS, 1970- Local Races Feature Woman Ride By HERB JOHNSON Staff Writer When she comes off the trac she looks like most jockeys. Th blonde hair is tucked under th racing helmet. Her face sti has the determined expressio it wore out on the track. After a few minutes the se expression relaxes, but she still very much a jockey. Her name is Barbara Suite and she has been riding sine she was four1. Now 21, she' riding this week at the Whoop Up Days race meet. Mrs. Suitor (she's married with two children) began ridin professionally when she was li Eaised on a farm 70 miles wes of Calgary, she started on th bush circuit, racing in sue' places as Millarville and Milo She placed third in her firs race. The prizes, she says, ar "really small" on the bush ch- ant. The average is about or Since that first race she has missed only one year of racing In all that time she has had no injuries, not even minor ones. She readily admits tha racing can be a dangerous sporl and says she has been "rea lucky" so far. Although female jockeys have only recently begun to break into the big time, Barbara says there are quite a few women Jockeys working the bush circuit Perhaps her years on the cir- cuit have made the difference but she says she has no prob- lems at all getting along with the male jockeys. "They're all she says "We get along real well." She doesn't seem to share some of the views held by to- day's female rights agitators. .There's no need to compete with the male jockeys, she says. "I just do my best every race, you can't do any more than that." Barbara hasn't been racing too much this year. This is only hef second meet. She hasn't lost interest, it's just that her youngest boy is only three months old. After this meet is over she intends to go back home and catch up on her housekeeping. Next year, when the children are bigger and better able to travel, she'll be back for an- other full season of'racing.

EVERYWHERE A HORSE Although Whoop-Up Days does feature a rodeo that is certainly not only place horses can be found, going through their paces. From kid- dies' rides to treasured prizes, horses steal the scene from every angle ,ack Of Knowledge For Prevention Mental Health BigProblem OTTAWA (CP) Mental ealth is the biggest public tealth problem Canada faces, ays Geneva Lewis, newly ected president of the ian Public Health Association. Mrs. Lewis, director of public ealth for the Ottawa-Carleton igional government, says not nough is known about mental ness to set up an effective rogram to prevent it. "We are very concerned bout what's behind the rise in le venereal disease rate among e she says. 'What's behind the Mds who ire so disoriented from society, nd what's behind the high sui- de rate in this Next to traffic accidents', sui- de was the biggest cause of eath for Canadians in the 20- age bracket, and Ottawa atistics on venereal disease owed that about 825 people ad been treated at a special hnic during the first quarter of 70.

All these things seem to in- dicate there's something wrong with our mental health." Mrs. Lewis says she does not believe the theory that family breakdown has generated these problems. In fact she is not con- vinced there is family break- down in Canada. "I think the problem stems from the fact we are still in the transition period from a rural to an urban society here." she said. She also suspects that the re- cent rise in demands for equal- ity for women is part of the own Mrs. Marlene Cook of- Sacn mento, Calif., has been a recen visitor with her grandparents Mr. and Mrs. L.

"Women have brains, they are educated, and' they wonder why they can't use this." Mrs. Lewis says there has been a terrific increase in ve- nereal disease among persons in the 25-and-under age group and that public health officials in Canada are concerned there might be an increase in tuber- culosis among young people who leave home for the hippie way of life. As for the drug problem, from a public health point of view it was fraught with controversy. NOT BLACK AND WHITE "Society in general has never had to handle this before. There have always been drug addicts, but they were small in number. "There's a tremendous fear associated with drug use which leads, in some areas, to mis- management in treatment pro- grams. We are just not geared to handle it in Canada, and it's not one of those black-and-white things, either." Next to the general area of mental health, Canada's second biggest public health problem was dental health. But in- creased education would1 make the public more aware that den- tal problems must be consi- dered part of the total health picture. Matchbox Stuffing Record Won By 11-Year-Old Boy OSHAWA, pnt. (CP) It took 11 year old Leonard Swartz weeks, but when he finished he had establish- .ed a world record. In what? In stuffing items into a paper box. Donald says the box stuff- ing was a class, project. "Our teacher got a percep- tion bag and we all had to pick a project out of it to he said. "I picked this particular one." So he decided to make an extra good job out of it and beat the world record. The record was establish- ed .by Shirley Kempster of England, who got 208 items into a matchbox much larger than Leonard's. Her record in a matchbox the same size as Leonard's would have been only 152. items. Leonard's box contained 173 items, which he took mainly from his home and his chemistry set. There is a dead worm, a wing from a housefly, a June bug's leg, a grasshopper's cover from a a whig from THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "There's a rather substantial rumor in some circles these days, that mink makes brunettes'break out in boils." leg, a wing beetle and a bee. When Leonard checked on his mother's kitchen, he took a piece of fish, a bread crumb, 'a peel f r o m an or- ange, a kernel of corn, one piece of cheese, an apple seed, a piece of celery, a grain of coffee and a piece of chicken skin. Then Leonard went on to prowl through the house, picking up a bristle from a brush, one metal rod, one nut, a paper clip, a postage stamp, a sliver of wood, a piece of chalk, a photo corner and a square of film. The other items, including an oothecae, came from out- side. An oothecae? It's the cover of an egg from an insect.
