Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 22, 1974 -The Herald Family Driving course cuts insurance A government-approved driving course designed to cut insurance rates includes high school driving courses, ac- cording to the provincial government, but local school officials haven't received any word yet. The announcement, made last month by the provincial government, said new drivers who take the government- approved driving course will pay substantially less for their insurance. Spokesmen for the local public school board and the separate school board both said they haven't heard anything from the provincial government. The new course is expected to be implemented by July 1 and will be a 20-hour standar- dized course with 10 hours in the classroom and 10 hours behind the wheel. Graduates of the course would receive up to a 40 per cent saving on their first insurance premium, the government indicated. George Bevan, director of curriculum for public schools, said he thinks the government is just making public what has been a general practice for some time. "A number of insurance companies give a reduced rate Graduates Verlin H. Koch Son of Mr. Mrs. Harold C. Koch of Lethbridge, recently received his Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Calgary. to students who take the courses at the high schools if they own their own he said. Both Winston Churchill and Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute have driver training courses, with Alberta Motor Association instructors giving in-car training and teachers from the school giving classroom instruction. Dr. Bevan said the total cost of the course is about and the school board pays the first The student pays the rest The courses at the schools includes about 30 classroom hours. 8 hours of observation, and 12 hours of actual driving. Ken Sauer, principal of LCI, said his school has had a driv- ing course for the last six years but only in the last two years the course has come un- der the department of educa- tion as a two-credit course. "For the last two yers students graduating from the course have received up to a 22 per cent discount on their first insurance he said Under the new program students will receive up to a 40 per cent discount. An AMA spokesman said though he has received word from the provincial govern- ment that the course offered by the AMA will come under the program he hasn't heard anything about the courses offered at the high schools. Cost of the AMA driving course for members is and S95 for non-members of the organization. Under the new program a 16-year-old male who com- pletes the course should see his premium drop to from a saving. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS! The Salvation Army Welfare Services Need Clothing.

Excellence demands time Local musician Toronto bound By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer Practicing a clarinet seven hours a day may seem like a chore to some, but to Margaret Foster, it's the most fulfilling way to spend a day. This 18-year-old Lethbridge musician, who has been studying music for nine years, has been rewarded many times over for her skills and accuracy on the instrument. But her major feat occurred recently when she was nam- ed best senior woodwind instrument player in Alberta. At the provincial festival held in Banff, Margaret was chosen to represent Alberta at the national festival to be held in Toronto in August. "It was the biggest surprise I've ever had. When they called my name, I couldn't believe she says. Margaret will spend the summer months involved in her music. She is now touring England, Scotland and .Wales with the Calgary Youth Orchestra. They left June 14 and will return July 6. On her return, she will go to Red Deer where she will spend the major portion of the summer month as a clarinet instructor for a six-week music workshop, spon- sored by the government. Then, she will leave for Toronto for the national music festival, which will be held Aug. 14 and 15. Margaret says her beginnings in music happened by chance. I was in Grade 4, my mother gave me a choice of taking skating, dancing, music or swimming lessons. She told me I had to choose two out of the four, I knew I wanted to take swimming lessons but I couldn't make up my mind about the other. Finally, she decided I would take music." She took lessons from C. 0. Strom of Pincher Creek right up until she left for the University of Calgary last fall. Margaret is planning a career in music and hopes to perform in an orchestra or as a soloist, depending on the status she obtains upon completion of her degree in music. She knows it's a tough business to get into and it will be a struggle. She has just completed her first year of music at the U of C and plans to attend a university in the United States in the fall. "It seems that a musician has a better chance of meeting the right people in the States and there also seems to be more performance opportunities. Contacts are always important." Margaret plans to continue her education in the states for the next few years. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Foster, 1317 4th Ave. S. F.O.E.

"Anyone who hates children and dogs can't be all bad." W. C. Fields. Children are nurtured, pampered, trained, spanked and educated. They are diagnosed, discussed, despaired of, disown- ed and disinherited. They are described as a delight, a wonder, a joy, a nuisance, a blessing and a bother. And now, suddenly, children are not being had. At least, they are not being had by a significant number of couples who have simply decided not to be parents. These Childless Couples (C.C.'s for short) are not merely waiting to get settled before having their family. They aren't leaving it to chance. They are deliberately not reproducing themselves. Their reason for what seems a startling decision to many are varied and individual, borne of long and agonized soul- searching. Many share similar concerns: they feel the future is too uncertain, the world already too crowded and growing more so. with the spectre of world food shortages a very real concern. They wonder if, 25 years hence, their progeny would thank them for being borne. Some feel having a child would be only a form of ego gratification, to see if little images of themselves would result. C.C.'s do not deny having that natural urge to produce a child and nurture a new life. They are not against children per se they enjoy friends' youngsters and give full credit to those pur- suing the demanding job of parenthood with imagination and intelligence. Some honestly feel they don't 'have what it takes' to be a good parent and think a child's life is not something to idly experiment upon. Whatever their reasons, these Childless Couples are not often encouraged to remain in their state. Their parents, often frustrated grandparents, may apply not-so-suble pressures. Friends with children extole the virtues of parenthood in one breath and bellow at junior with another. Society still tends to regard marriages which have not produced a youngster or two as weird, blighted or somehow failed. "Barren" women are still considered miserably unfulfilled by some segments of the pop- ulation. Childless Couples are often accused of selfishness. They ad- mit to having rewarding lives which they'd prefer not to disrupt or share with a third party. They strongly believe children should above all be wanted, rather than be adjusted to, or accepted grudgingly. It's easy to blithely reproduce, only to turn into a raging harridan or an absentee stranger. It is quite painful to examine your motives and abilities and decide to become a minority group. In recent months, there has been a growing awareness o C.C.'s: magazine and newspaper articles have examined the trend in some depth. In the U.S., a non-parents' association has been formed presumably to give the childless strength ir. numbers. Certainly, people have been childless before. But such couples were spoken of in hushed, sorrowful tones they 'couldn't have' babies. Few people dared to admit actually preferring not to have children it was expected everyone would. The final rhetoric reserved for the deliberately childless is: everybody thought the way you do, none of us would be here today." A trueism, but correct. However, our groaning globe cannot stand another baby boom, and there are countless meaningful ways to serve society, other than propagation of the species. Childless couples should be granted the respect and freedom from harrassing meddlers to prsue such roles, if they so choose.
