Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J5 _ THE LETHBR1DOE HERALD Friday, July 30, W1 wma Oldman River Craft Festival planned for Indian Battle By CHRISTINE PUHL Staff Writer An open-air craft market, Oldman River Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Wood Craft Festi- val will be held in Indian Battle Park, August 14 and 15 from 11 a.m. to dusk each day. The Oldman River Craft Fes- tival theme is an earth festival and any persons with hand- crafted goods or music, mind LEISTER'S Campus Corner ay EVA BREWSTER Coutls A lot has been said about the Sudents' Ecology Corps rang- ing from praise for its merits to the opinion that students were underpaid slave labor, not given union rates and taking from the regular later jobs from force. Be that as it may, the scheme to employ multi lingual, com- puter chosen students in tourist information centres throughout the province is now more than halfway through the summer and a summary of the humiliat- ing muddle produced so far is not premature. The scheme started, reason- able enough, with a training course in Edmonton, a bus tour through the beauty spots of Al- berta, followed by an examina- tion to determine the students' ability to advise tourists. The students had to find their bus fares to Edmonton and enough money to keep them for three weeks. After that they were promised their first pay cheques. Among school and other documents, they had to submit health certificates on arrival in Edmonton which were returned to them. Meas- ured for uniforms, which they were told to wear on duty, they were then posted to various in- pie on the payroll to ensure regular salaries. The first pay finally received ras not enough to cover their debts. Now, three weeks later, they still have not received any more and the government owes them about each Thev have, however, been post- ed again, not to the essential information centres promised but never established, but back to Edmonton and places further or soul talent are invited to participate. The festival first originated with an Edmonton youth troupe of musicians, poets, potters, theatre and yoga personnel sponsored by Opportunities for Youth. Messenger, an informa- tional organization for Leth- bridge youth, invited the troupe to the city as well as arranging local participation. George Shaw, of Messenger said local craftsmen are being contacted and invited to bring their wares and set up a booth using the sky and grass. Application forms are avail- able in the Messenger Office, east end of Central School or by calling They are avail- able for musicians, theatre groups or anyone at all interest- ed. Everything is free for par- ticipants except their own formation Alberta. centres throughout Five weeks later, those posted to Lethbridge were advised they could not be paid unless health certificates were again submit- ted to Edmonton. By now the girls were seriously in debt most being too far from home to raise enough to pay their board and lodging or even bus fares to and from work. They, therefore, walked miles daily in rain and wind and wen hungry. A letter to the govern ment, stating their plight brought a reply to the effec that there were too many peo north. Once again, they have to find their own bus fares which, it is hoped, will be re- funded in September. Their uniforms, commission- ed almost seven weeks ago, lave not materialized but will, 10 doubt, arrive when their summei- "job" comes to an end next rronlh. At least one of the girls had lo quit her so-longed-for inde- )endence and return home de- eated. She is too proud to bor- row any more. What kind of lesson in living :s the government trying to :each our young generation? lurely the opposite from that our parents taught: "Never let icople down who depend on ,'ou." Never take on responsi- Dilities you cannot pay for. Pay your bills promptly and never borrow money unneccessarily. If you make plans, stick to them." The U.S. have a trailer in busiest port on the Montana border, advising tour- ists on travel in Alaska. Hun- dreds of tourists pass through this customs post looking for information, yet, the planned Canadian centre has not ye' been set up. Instead, the trained students are shunted around places where they feel super- fluous. Mismanagement?

Those attend- ing came from throughout southern Alberta and as far away as California. ROME (AP) Italian fall-] winter fashions turned back to the 1940s Sunday with a strong trend to masculine cut. Some- times they coupled nostalgia with the nude look. Antonclli's collection showed a hodgepodge of styles that de- noted either little courage or great confidence. It takes faith to stick to one style, but mixing them is likely to confuse pros- pective buyers. A decisively masculine trend emerged from the collection with trousers and vests. A short pinafore dress in black went with a man's shirt and tie and heavy walking shoes. Soft fell hats and'hair styles evoked the war years, while fur muffs gave a feminine touch. Coats came in brighter colors than the suits. With evening wear, Antonel- li made use of more and more black. A big round collar over a black see-through blouse hid part of the model's breasts.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDG., IETHBRIDGE NAME Dear Margaret Brookfield: My age is 50 and my hus- band's is 58. Our only child married recently. Of course, while he was growing up he was our m a i most of the time our only interest. Now we're experiencing the problems most middle-aged couples have. Not much to say to each other and wondering what we have in common. So I'm thinking about going back to work. I have a B.S. degree in education, with experience in the teaching field but no de- sire to return to it. Do you have any suggestions? Y. R., Corpus Texas Dear Y.R.: That's what comes of put- ting your eggs in one basket, so to speak. Now you really have some catching up to do, in terms of your marriage and your work. If you can, why not take a trip alone with your husband to a place where ne- ither of you have been? It needn't be an expensive or an elaborate trip. The idea would be to get out of your familiar nit and see what you can do about rediscovering one anoth- er. As for your vocational de- cisions, since you do have degree and some previous work experience, that's all to the good. Why not check with your local employment agen- cies or your slate employment service? They might be able to suggest administrative or oth- not necessarily involve teach- ing. i Dear Margaret Brookfield: Open black evening dresses showed a lot of the model's fig- ure and in masculine styling thei'e was a spangled tuxedo and gardener's overall in black sequins topped by a chess-board jacket. Black minidresses under long fur coats proved that hot pants have not edged out the short dress entirely. Tita Rossi went in for cape coa's in ivory, green, red, blue and black with matching feath- ered berets. VESTS OUTSIDE There were many wide-legged trousers with vests and coats. Some coats had the vest on the outside a curly fleece like a shepherd's jacket. Rossi widened sleeves by making them start from the waistline and tapering them down to the wrist in many of her evening dresses that come in melting blues and greens. Shorts appeared briefly in green sequins under a tulle petticoat dress. Black made a definite come- back in most collections. The simple little black dress and straight velvet coat were in again at. Baratta's. Baratta raised waists a little and just covered the knee in suits and dresses. But Baratta didn't go in_ for complete mourning. He mixed shocking pink with blended grey gowns and brought the rainbow out after the clouds in a bril- liantly colored taffeta full- skirted dress. The Fontana sisters narrowed and shortened kouser legs in as concerned with coats and capes. The coats had wide houlders and elbow length sleeves, the rest of the arm protected by black knitted gloves. A black tie put the finishing touch to suits, giving them a severe uniform look, with boots or knitted socks to match. CASH BINGO ST. BASIL'S HAll-Cor. 13th St. and 6th Ave. N.

H. R., Burlington, N.C. Dear H. R.: Having two daughters in col- lege is not a problem, it's an accomplishment. As for de- manding par'ents, they're often only as demanding as you let them be. If you can draw the line realistically between what you can actually do for them and what you cannot, they may simmer down somewhat. The cranky, nervous feeling you describe may be a result of your problems or related perhaps to the menopause. Why not see your doctor and find out if you might be suffer- ing from a hormone deficien- cy? Many doctors prescribe estrogen replacement for such conditions. Your most serious problem would seem to be your wandering husband, but he turns up nt the bot'.om of your list. Perhaps he felt you've been so tied up with those other problems that he had to look elsewhere for at- tention.
