Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHDRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Juno 17, 1970 e For By CAROL PASCOE MONTREAL (CP) The chairman of a newly formed Gamblers Anonymous group in Montreal says the only per- son who can help a compulsive gambler is someone else equally obsessed with irrespon- sible 'and uncontrollable bet- ting. Chance meetings between two such men, first in Los An- geles in 1957 and again in Montreal about two years ago, led to formation of GA organi- zations, said John D, 42, in an interview. Members of GA refer to themselves as compulsive gam- blers long after they have stopped, he explained. BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN Preparation for a holiday. Did you ever realize how much care must be taken before one leaves for a holiday care of the pets, the garden, the mail delivery, and even the house plants! By the way, there is good holiday care for your house plants, other than taking it to to neighbor or friend. Seal the pot in a sheet of plastic. First, water the plant thoroughly; allow it to drain. Place pot on centre of a piece of plastic then pull corners and sides of the sheet upwards and over the pot to the plant stem. Tie the plastic sheet firmly around stem of plant. In this way the soil stays moist for two weeks if kept out of the sunlight. Alberta Women's Week is de- signed to be a short holiday for women without their families. It's being held in the Agricul- tural and Vocational College at Olds, July 14, 15 and 16, at Fairview July 8 and 9. If you go to Olds you may attend just for a day, and if you don't wish to participate in handicraft, then go to the discussion ses- sion. Handicraft workshops during the mornings will include tie i dyeing, decoupage and making I a iortrel dress. There will be, too. a handicraft display, cour- tesy of the Arts and Crafts [Division, Cultural Development 'Branch and Olds Arts and Crafts Guild. At Olds the speakers will cover a variety of tonics: "Gaps and Ways to Bridge Them" communications and oneself, with Glen Marsh. "Landscape Design" Dianne Douglas.
