Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE ItTHBKIDGE HERALD 20, 1973 Second-language -receives support DALVAY, P.E.I. (CP) The! are not prepared to abide by Canadian Home and School and Parent-Teacher Federation will call on the federal government to specify its conditions for use of second-language education grants. Delegates voted support for the move during concluding ses- sions of the federation's annual meeting. Support came in response to complaints that some provinces were using a loophole in federal policy to avoid giving adequate and equal opportunity for sec- ond-language instruction. Delegates from New Bruns- wick and Quebec cited their own provinces as the worst of- fenders. Betty O'Connell of the Quebec delegation told the meeting that all the money received by her province goes to French-speak- ing students for English instruc- tion. Although almost S30 million had been given the province for bilingual education in 1971 (the last year figures were avail- "not one cent" had reached English-speaking stu- dents for French instruction, she said. Phyllis Dixon of the New Brunswick delegation, com- plained that it was impossible in her province to tell what per- centage of the grants was being used for second-language in- struction. "It is all being thrown into the same big pot and we don't know how it's being she said. Earlier in the week, the fed- eration passed a resolution call- ing for the formation of "moral pollution" committees. The committees were formed despite objections from Nova Scotia, Alberta and Saskatche- wan that they amounted to cen- sorship boards. The committees were formed to deal with what some dele- gates called objectionable mate- rial in the communications and entertainment media. Prince Edward Island repre- sentatives presented the motion because they said the media "acknowledged moral stand- ards.'' Delegates also passed resolu- tions calling on television sta- tions to improve programming and advertising. Delegates also requested an interprovincial reporting agency and fines and jail terms for in- dividuals who knowingly fail to report incidents of child abuse. The weeks meeting passed a number of resolutions calling for educational changes on a nationwide scale. The executives voted to sup- port in principle a number of resolutions submitted by the Ca- nadian School Trustees Associ- ation. They included a common basic "cirriculum and a table of equivalencies to assist in eval- uation of students travelling be- tween provinces. Another resolution called for establishment of a federal office of education to provide national leadership and assis- tance. Anecdotes to be told EDMONTON (CP) -Four wives of RCJMP members are compiling a book of anecdotes designed to tell the force's story from a different point of view. Mrs. L. R. Clevette of Ed- monton said their tales will provide a human look at the wives' role with the force. The book is to be issued for the RCMP's 100th anniversary. i Mrs. Clevette, co-ordinator of the project, said 600 letters are being mailed to wives of vet- eran Mounties asking for de- tails of their most interesting experiences connected with the force. In a sense, she said, a wife who is married to the Mountie is married to the force. She was often called on for advice in small communities in the absence of her husband.

Mrs. Clarke indicated nutri- tion is one area in which women can play a useful role.

Mrs. Clarke said there is an urgent need for nutrition edu- cation. On attitudes to products in the market, she said consum- ers have become more dis- criminating No legislation can protect the ignorant, she added.

(CP) Al- berta's deputy premier grab- bed the opportunity to de- fend his province's energy pol- icies to representatives of the rest of Canada. Addressing delegates at the Federated Women's Institute of Canada (FWIC) convention, Hugh Homer said he would dis- cuss Alberta's rjosition in "the family of particularly with regard to such things as "our small argument with the government of Ontario about (the wellhead price of Alberta) gas." "First of all, we in Alberta are Canadians first, then Alber- Dr. Homer said. "We have to have the necessary de- velopment and the necessary resources to make a contribu- tion to the family." "We're not trying to gouge he said. "But we do say the people of Alberta are entitled to a reasonable return and the development to provide jobs for young people." Alberta and Ontario have been locked in a battle regard- ing Alberta's attempt to raise the wellhead price of natural gas. Ontario plans to challenge the move in the courts. DISCUSSES PRICES Dr. Horner, also agriculture minister, touched on the ques- tion of high food prices. He told the delegates, most of them from rural communities across Canada, he feels sure they could appreciate that food "should not be given away" at (Original Psnsioners and Se- levelling off on he said. "But food is not an area that one section of the economy should have to subsidize." Earlier in the day, Edna Clarke of the Alberta agricul- ture department urged FWIC delegates to concern themselves with nutrition. World scientific studies show that "from the time a child is conceived, nutrition plays a vi- tal Mrs. Clarke said. She said there is little con- nection between family income and good nutrition. "Evidently, it's possible to have pillow- cases full of money and still eat all the wrong things." The convention, which has at- tracted about 750 delegates, continues 'through Friday. FWIC is a rural-based organ- ization interested in adult edu- cation and community improve- ment. 4 ca oca tenac I The LA to FOE will hold an officers meeting at the home of Mrs. M.

Not the militant kind, just humanitarian lib- eration from fancy meals re- quiring lots of preparation and a million-and-one pots and pans to scrub. Personally, I'm all for warm weather foods that taste great and provide free- dom from a messy kitchen, like this wonderful chicken dinner with rice and veget- ables. All ingredients are combined into single serving little foil bundles, baked, and turned right onto the dinner plates. Easy Livin' Chicken 3.k cup uncooked regular rice 1 broiler-fryer chicken, quartered IVz tsp. salt, divided 1 can (6 or 8 oz.) mush- rooms 2 medium zucchini, slic- ed (optional) 1 green pepper, cut in strips 1 medium onion, thinly sliced 1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce Tz tsp. tabasco sauce tsp. dried leaf oregano Vz tsp. dried leaf basil Grated parmesan cheese Just remember while you're checking the ingredients, it isn't necessary in most cases to stick rigidly to a recipe. Use your own favorite vege- tables and seasoning if you don't care for those that are listed. With Easy Livin' Chicken, all that is needed to round off your meal is garlic bread, or maybe rolls, baked in foil. If you wish, finish off with a light dessert of ice cream cr sherbert. Place three tablespoons rice in centre of each of four 12-inch squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle chick- en on both sides with tea- spoon salt, and place on rice. Drain mushrooms, reserving cup of liquid. Divide vege- tables into four equal portions and place on chicken quart- ers. Mix together tomato sauce, the reserved cup mush- room liquid, tabasco sauce, oregano and basil. Spoon over vegetables and chicken. Fold foil over food, seal tightly. Place in shallow bak- ing pan and bake in 375 de- gree oven one hour. To serve, open foil packet and transfer contents to plate. Sprinkle with grated parmesan. Makes four servings. Here's another easy-fixer from Italy. Have you heard of the frittata? It's a kind of Italian omelet filled with veg- etables, flat rather than puffy, and served in wedges like a slice of pie. This grand, savory dish is also a budget pleaser. Fresh Corn Frittata A ears fresh corn 4 slices bacon 2 tbsp. chopped fresh onion Vi tsp. salt tsp. sugar tsp. pepper Ji tsp. dried leaf thyme cup grated parmesan cheese 4 eggs 3 tbsp. water Husk corn and cut kernels off cob. In a large skillet, cook bacon until lightly browned, remove and drain. Pour off all but one table- spoon bacon fat. Add onion and corn to skillet and cook until tender, about five min- utes. Add salt, sugar and pepper, thyme and parmesan. In small bowl beat eggs and water until well mixed. Pour all at once into skillet; stir to mix well. Cook without stir- ring over medium heat for three to five minutes, until set. Place briefly under broil- er to brown top. Cut into wedges, garnish with bacon and serve immediat e 1 y. Makes four servings. The hot dog's popularity bridges the generation gap and spans all walks of life. It tastes good, is easy to pre- pare, and like other, more expensive meats, is a good source of protein. This recipe can be prepared indoors or out. Hot Shot Hot Dog Loaf 2 tbsp. butter or mar- garine cup finely chopped onion X3 cup hamburger relish a'2 cup chili sauce 1 tbsp. Worcestershire 1 tbsp. brown sugar 1 loaf Italian or French bread, about 16" long l pkg. (8 oz.) processed cheese, grated (OR 1 8- oz. jar processed cheese spread) 10 frankfurters, cut In half crosswise. Melt butter in small pan and saute onion until tender, about five minutes. Remove from heat and add relish, chili sauce. Worcestershire and brown sugar. Cut about one inch from each end of loaf. Cut remain- der of bread into 10 pieces, about 1% inches each. Slice each piece downwards through the centre, almost to bottom making a pocket. Use about half the relish mixture to spread into the centre cut of each of the 10 pockets. Place about half the cheese in the centre and poke two frankfurter halves into cheese, allowing the uncut ends of franks to poke out. Spoon remaining half of re- lish into sandwiches and top with remainder of cheese. If you have them, use long skewers to fasten bread pieces together to resemble original loaf. Place on foil and wrap tightly. Heat on grill over charcoal until hot, or in 400-degree oven for about 20 minutes. Remove skewers before serving. Makes 10 sand- wiches.
