Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, June 3, 1974 Sister opens door for needy VANCOUVER (CP) Sister Antoinette of the Franciscan Sisters of Atonement calls the grizzled, battered men of Skid Road "my boys." Off and on since the Depres- sion, Sister Antoinette has opened the door of the small convent adjacent to Oppenhei- mer Park and handed out sandwiches. Now inflation has hit the bread line as the spiralling cost of bread and meat makes it harder each day to give out good nourishing sandwiches. But somehow the Lord pro- vides, she says, and somehow a crisis hasn't arisen. The Franciscans don't receive funds from any regular source. All the money needed to feed up to 400 men a day comes from donations. "Now and again people lec- ture us about how we THE GOLDEN MILE CENTRE 320 -11th St. South FOOD AUCTION Wed., June 5 p.m. Mr, Keith Erdman ot Hurlburt's Auctioneer All Are Welcome Come and have fun and get groceries cheap Tea and Coffee will be available shouldn't help the we're just condoning we just ignore that." The sisters buy day-old bread, end cuts of bologna, pieces of cheese... anything to make a sandwich. Each man is given four with meat and two with peanut butter or salmon or whatever has been collected. At the beginning of the month, when welfare cheques have been cashed, the queues drop and only a couple of hun- dred sandwiches are given away. At the end of the month, when money is tight on Skid Road, the queue becomes considerably longer and sometimes food is taken from the nuns' table if the' sandwiches run out. The sisters organize raffles and tea parties for money and every once in a while there is a windfall.

Christmas is bad enough and then along S comes Fafher's Day. This year it is June 16. Here's a suggestion: Link his gift with his zodiac sign. Everyone is interested in what the stars say about his jij character. Write the character description on the birthday card and link it up with your gifts. The Men's Fashion Association of America has come up 8 with pithy character analyses and some gift suggestions. 5 The Aries man March 21-April 20 is "positively efficient Sand frequently operates on over-drive." Pamper his H; efficiency with non-wrinkle knitted slacks and permanent press shirts and point out their efficiency on your birthday card, along with the Aries quote. The Taurus born April 21-May 20 dad is "usually stable, reliable and positively determined.'' He likes tried and true styles. No use trying to give him anything :S unconventional. Quote the Taurus character on your birthday card. He'll get the connection. The father born a Gemini May 21-June 20 "suffers from false beliefs or ideas of limitation." So your card should hint you're getting him out of a rut. Give him a bold patterned shirt, checked socks and so on. If his clothes are g: usually bold and brash, get him some solid colors for j; contrast. g The Cancer born June 21-July 22 is economy oriented. So go lavish. If you buy an expensive tie, for example, 6 he'd probably return it. So give him three cheaper ones and, on the card, point out the economy. You might also g consider a money clip with his initials. He can't exchange that and, you may be sure, will prize it. 8 The Leo born July 23-Aug 22 is "strictly first class, a 8 No. 1 deluxe model." So you're going to have to spend money really to please him. Shoot the works on one or two 8 super gifts. Bracelets in an ultra-modern design might be 8 just the thing. Buy the gifts at a top store and be sure the store's label shows. In fact, you might even leave the g: price tag on and let your birthday card announce "You're worth every penny the gift cost." 8 The Virgo born Aug. 23-Sept 22 is competent and reliable. A good choice here would be toiletries and soap, cologne. :j: The Libra Sept 23-Oct 22 man is "smooth functioning, well balanced and versatile." Suggested gifts: Mix-and- match sport shirts and walk shorts, a wallet to hold credit cards as well as cash. 8 Scorpio born Oct 23-Nov 22 is "vastly complex, multi- Pamper wild side and buy him some boldly patterned and strongly colored items, as tone-on-tone shirts, a smashing beach outfit or colorful bikini-type ;S briefs. Let your birthday card make him feel a dashing fellow indeed. :j The Sagittarian Nov 23-Bec 21 is "efficient, practical and geared for expansion." Think of gifts in terms of new fashions that would expand his life style. if A gift for the Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan 19 dad is easy. He's ij; tradition- and authority-oriented. So if you don't want to upset him, get him traditional button-down collar oxford shirts, regimental striped rep ties, over-the-calf 8 socks. 8 Another east-to-shop-for father is the Aquarius born 8 Jan 20-Feb 18. He's receptive and free of prejudice. For 8 him, the newer the style, the better. He'll probably give S anything a try. If he plays tennis, you might get shorts and shirts in the newest colors, pale blues and pastel yellows. The Pisces born Feb 19-March 20 "'focuses on S: discipline, controls and communications." He wants his clothes to say something but not to shout. His taste is conservatively smart. Get him something functional, 8 rather than frivolous. 8 And regardless of what your father's zodiac sign is if 8 he's a sportsman, you have an open field for gifts from 8 golfing clothes to a seaman-like foul-weather outfit 8 with his initials in international code flags. And if he's a 8 gardening type, what about a dashing, big-brimmed straw S planter's hat to shield him from the sun? Club corner notes!
