Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 15, 1974 Minus One Club helps members beat loneliness By KATHIE MACLEAN Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Minus One Club has been in existence nearly seven years and during that time has helped many a person overcome the problem of loneliness. Marjorie Corraini. president of the club, says many people don't realize the loneliness experienced by those who have been divorced, separated, widowed or just never married. "You never know until it iiappens to you just how hard it really is to get yourself socializing again." she says. Organized in 1967, the club ANNOUNCEMENT FAYE JOANNE STEAD FAYE recently graduated from the University of Al- berta, Calgary, with a BA of Education in early childhood education. She is the daughter of Eliza- beth Dykstra of Leth- bridge, and received all her early schooling at McNalley School. Faye now resides in Calgary and is employed by The Calgary School sponsors activities including dances every second week throughout the fall and winter months, social evenings, picnics, barbecues, tours, corn roasts in the fall and outings for the members' children. Mrs. Corraini. a widow, feels many people lose self- confidence when they experience the loss of a partner, whether it be by death or divorce. "But the club seems to pull these people together. They have a common bond and are able to understand each others' problems." The Lethbridge club is affiliated with similar organizations in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Medicine Hat and in Saskatchewan and B.C. To be eligible for membership, a person must be at least 21 years of age and single, widowed, divorced or separated for at least three months. The membership in 1973 was 96 and Mrs. Corraini expects to top 100 members this year. "Our major concern is to get across to people that we are not a "lonely hearts' she says. Mrs. Corraini says many people have a "'snooty attitude" towards the club and look down on it as if it were a "mail order bride Mrs. Corraini stresses that the club is strictly a social club where people get together, make friends and enjoy themselves. Neil McDonald, who has been attending the club to two years joined last fall and became a member of the executive in February.

Time to plan ahead." Sound like an excerpt from a folksy commercial for your loan company? Wrong it's the launching paragraph of a new pamphlet describing existing options for higher education in fair Alberta. Produced by the department of advanced education, the pamphlet is entitled, "it's about time and is being distributed to Grade 11 and 12 students in Alberta at a cost of "about Marred by sporadic efforts at 'groovy' dialogue, the publication is still a well intentioned effort to communicate useful information to high school students. However, as a strong supporter of our local non militant, non violent, non freaky movement to further women's awareness, let me point out several unfortunate aspects of the above described literature: 29 cartoon-like illustrations gracing the magazine, only six depict young women making choices about higher education, compared with 19 drawings of young men pondering their future: those of you now saying, 'six plus 19 does not 29 make', there are two other illustrations showing both males and females contemplating education alternatives. In addition, there are two non peopled scenes, one of which shows an annoyed-looking cow also to be counted in the female camp? The pamphlet shows woman as computer programmer, nurse, stenographer, artist and-surveyor. Men are depicted as architects, aviators, judges, chefs, veterinarians, sculptors and barbers all professions in which women have been active for some time. In three of the six illustrations, women are shown in the traditional 'working woman' roles low-income, low-status jobs in which there is little or no upward mobility. Why could not a woman have been depicted in a less traditional role, such as veterinarian or not a dime-a-dozen, women have been successful in such positions and their numbers are growing. "It's about time also carries just a faint tint of the Playboy bunny treatment of buttocks and hot pants are prominent characteristics for several of the female characters. Isn't it reasonable to wonder if impressionable students might infer from the pamphlet that, since few girls are shown pursuing higher education, girls lack the brains and ambition necessary to meaningful careers? Or that nursing the ill and acting as somebody's secretary are work best suited to girls while fellows can pursue more weighty roles as town planners, lawyers or doctors? The pamphlet's very cover sets the image: a girl dreams of a career as nurse or steno; the boy envisions himself as doctor or petroleum engineer both big-money, high-status roles. I'm the first to admit that at this stage of history women must beware of seeing themselves as always the victim, of crying wolf or reading chauvinism into every situation. But at a time when (good) schools are aware of the necessity for non- sexist literature and when (good) counsellors are trying to convey the wide array of careers available to all students. I think the art work in the Alberta Advanced Education pamphlet encourages dare I say even sexual stereotyping of women. That the pamphlet's creators perpetuated their stereotype unconsciously, perhaps unthinkingly with good intentions, is no longer a viable defence. It's about time government departments designed to equally serve all segments of the public stopped furthering the outdated 'woman as nitwit' concept. POSTSCRIPT: A recent announcement from the Students' Finance Board in Edmonton explained new regulations whereby students are now required to amass summer savings in order to become eligible for provincial student loans. Male students were advised to save a summer while females, "since they are less likely to obtain high paying employment'', were told to save less than that much less was not stipulated. On one hand, grateful girls might view the concession as giving them an "even But aren't such statements a subtle way of both acknowledging and condoning the despicable double standard that equal work equal pay legislation has been fighting 10 erase?

Phone 327-7771 Beer shirts centre of controversy TORONTO (CP) Crazy David is in trouble with some breweries and the Liquor Con- trol Board of Ontario over a batch of beer-label T-shirts he's selling around the country. Some parents are com- plaining to the board because children are wearing the T- shirts. And the board is putting pressure on the breweries to get their lawyers to investigate the possibility of legal action under copyright laws. Crazy David is actually David Keller. 27. who came to Toronto from the United States four years ago and started selling T-shirts with crazy slogans and designs. R. John Harris, deputy board commissioner, said a section of the Liquor Control Act prohibits outdoor advertising. This might be interpreted to prohibit the T-- shirts if youngsters wear them in public.

School ol Laboratory Technology and School of Radiological Technology, will ge held June 21, and will mark the end of the x-ray technician training program. The program has been in existence since 1934 and was originally housed at the old Gait Hospital, now the Sir Alexander Gait Museum. Under the direction of Dr. S. M. Rose, as readiologist in charge, the course graduated it's first student in 1947. Mary Thomson, who wrote her registered technician in radiology examination at that time, will be present at the graduation ceremonies next weekend. She will present the five graduands of the x-ray school with their certificates. The x-ray program was moved to the present location in the LMH in 1955, with the theoretical program being expanded to the Northern and Southern Alberta Institutes of Technology, and the LMH retaining the practical training program. In the 25 years of training technicians, the school has graduated 58 of the 60 students enrolled. LMH administrator Andy Andrechuk. says the program is being phased out as it has become financially impractical to continue with a full-time, rather than a part- time instructress. ''The program was accredited through to 1972. and a recent report indicated that it would be necessary to change the program to include a full-time instructress. ''The added expense is not warranted, as the school is limited as to the number of technicians it can accept and graduate per year." he says. Mr. Andrechuk says there is also a surplus of technicians in the field. The new conditions included a provision for students to study in other hospitals for a four- to-six-week period, as well as continuing studies at NA1T of SAIT. The present trend in education of rdiology technologists is to have them train at large metropolitan hospitals with extensive services such as at Edmonton or Calgary, rather than hospitals limited in their services such as LMH and St. Michael's Hospital. Ceremonies for the school of nursing, the school of laboratory technology and the school of radiology will begin with an alumnae banquet to be held tonight. Friday and Saturday of next week will mark the presentation of certificates and awards at the Yates Memorial Centre, with Dr. Ralph Johnson as guest speaker. Dr. M.M. Marshall will present the diplomas, with Mrs Thomson assisting. Herald- Family Validictorian tor the occasion is Beverley Anne Johnson. Saturday will mark the graduating class banquet and dance, both to take place at the El Rancho Convention Centre.
