Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE IETHBRIDOE HERAID Tuesday, Juno 16, 1970 ELDEST PARTICIPANT Elizabeth King of Raymond, 89, was the recipient of n special presentation Monday as the oldest registrant at the Brigham Young University Education Week at Lelhbridge Community College. About southern Alberta mem- bers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have registered at the three-day event, which features lectures on social, theological and personal subjects, such as home- making, the Mormon image and parent-teen relationships. Also honored at the present- ation in the LCC auditorium was Kathy Chinman of Raymond, 18, as the youngest reg- istrant from the Relief Society (church women's auxiliary.) Education Week concludes to- night. Says BYU Professor Making Marriage Work Needs 'Here And Now' Plan By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staff Writer "Even if marriages are made in heaven, the mainte- nance has to be handled on said Elmer Knowles, professor at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. Mr. Knowles, faculty mem- ber in the university's depart- ment of child development and family relationships, is one of 14 speakers at the three-day BYU Education Week at Leth- bridge Community College. Speaking Monday night to a class of about iso members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he said most marriages "get off to a good start" but tend to descend to "eye-for-an-eye" conflict. Mr. Knowles said Herald col- omnist Ann Landers, speaking once in Provo, indicated the common theme of newspaper readers' letters to her was of "ugly, miserable, hateful mar- riages." Miss Landers, who receives letters per day and is syndicated in 725 papers, "is doing a lot more good than he said. "She spends most of her time on the phone contacting professionals for their opinions." Mr. Knowles said during the Depression men withheld the "purse srtings" as a weapon against their wives. "Wives felt trapped." A recent development, at time when women can manage their own means of support, wives have taken to withholding affection when tiiey are dis- pleased with their husbands. "It is a most potent weapon. The Achilles Heel of any mar- riages the affectional area." Women use such measures as SOCIAL WORKER Three students qualified ns social workers are available for summer jobs through the Canada Manpower Centre stu- dent placement division in'Leth- bridge. Jail Terms Given Following Break-In Two Lethbridge men, Ken- Beth Frank Hunter, 20, and James William Salisbury, 22, received jail terms of 18 months and one year respec- tively when they appeared in ORRPC Report To Be Given Wednesday The annual report of the Old- man River Regional Planning Commission will be presented at the regular monthly meet- ing Wednesday. There will also be a report on office accommodations. Tlie commission expects to move from the regional development building into new quarters in the Datatron Systems and Pro- cessing Ltd. building at 1003 4th Ave. S. by the end of July. A letter from the Blcod In- dian band administration re- garding membership in the commission will also be dis- cussed. The commission will also ex- amine its policy on public re- serve and deal with staff re- evaluation. magistrate's court in Leth- bridge Monday. Hunter pleaded guilty to un- lawfully having in his posses- sion a cassette tape record- er, valued at more than and Salisbury pleaded guilty to break, enter and theft. Both Hunter and Salisbury claimed they had a drinking problem and Lloyd Hudson recommended the sen- tences be served in Belmont. an institution for alcoholics near Edmonton. Salisbury was reported to have broken into Stubbs' phar- macy Ltd. in Lethbridge, June 11, and stole a portable televi- sion set valued at more than and a cassette tape rec- order valued at After the theft, Hunter came into possession of the tape rec- order knowing it was stolen. Police evidence revealed Salisbury came to the police station and turned himself in, subsequently receiving the lighter sentence. Hunter has an extensive rec- ord of theft, break and enter- ing, assault, possession of sto- len property, common assault and mischief. Salisbury had one previous conviction of mischief and has been convicted of assault. The stolen goods were re- I tured to the owner. "staying in the bathroom too long or wearing curlers night." Mr. Knowles said he knew of a Provo woman who for 22 years had gone to be( annointed with Mentholatum. He said men's needs for af fection are "more specific, al though men are not as animal as many women think." But for a woman, affection is bound up with other aspects of the home. "She needs the whole house to be in order" be- fore physical needs come into prominence. The faucet must be fixed, anniversaries remem- bered, bills' paid; mutua' friends attended to, before- hand. Mr. Knowles, a marriage counsellor for 20 years, saic that in dealing with marita discord, partners should dis- cuss the issue at hand and not bring in "all sorts of extrane- ous arguments that have no- thing to do with the problem." He suggested married per- sons need1 to distinguish be- tween "productive and destruc- tive The first may be a situation in the home which can be altered. The sec- ond may be a purely negative, resentful attack on ttfe partner. Mr. Knowles said spouses should try to work out con- structive "first moves" which may lead to solving the prob- lem, and should be determined and patient. But if these measures' do not work, some "reputable outside help" should be contacted'.

Aid. Kotch had requested the report April 20, 1970. The report gives answers to 10 questions put forth by Aid. Kotch at that time. It notes that a major contrib- utor to expenses is the pay- roll, while maintenanace costs have increased only slightly. Also noted is the fact that if a debenture payment for the new transit garage were 8ele- ted from the 1969 budget, the deficit would be lower than in 1954.

'With a record number of tourists from the United Staets expected this Mr. Smith said, "it is important that all people dealing with tourists know the prevailing rate of exchange and give it to their customers.
