-Tuesday, June J7, THE LETHMIDGE HBIAID 15 Clothing club rally gives instruction to 4-Hers By CATHY RETI Herald Staff Writer The excitement of m o e ling new friends with similar inter- ests of grooming and sewing, naturally became part of annual 4-H clothing clubs rally. This year, nine clubs met at the Ixrtbridge Com- mimily College for a full day of meeting new people, gaining new ideas and gelling involved in some friendly competitions. The wide eyed wonderment of learning new techniques of grooming, posture and make-up was created by Marilyn Elli- son, a Merle Norman beauty representative. She displayed to the girls ways to he pretty, charming, poised, and an all- around "Golden Girl." The privilege of having the chance to model in front of others, garments constructed by one's own hands, gave the girls the chance to show off the work they are proud of, and gave others who didn't model, the encouragement to do so next year. The delight of seeing exhibi- tions, showing new ideas, or okJ ones with a new slant, made the audience aware of how to make or change something. Then, anxiously awaiting the judges' decisions of which dem- onstration was the best, some girls could see ideas for demon- HORGUS DRY GOODS LTD. MILK RIVER Mi. 647-3811 COWBOY WORK BOOTS Reg.

The 4-H a section under the Alberta department of culture, youth and recreation, has always found ways of not through camps, exchange bringing youths together. If trips or tours, rallies are or- ganized to get 4-Hers together. At this year's clothing clubs rally, about 200 girls from as far east as Medicine Hat, and as far west as Cowley assem- bled in Lethhridge, The day of events started about a.m. The girls wero given a chance to meet each other through a simple game of having to find others with things sucli as the same waist size, the same color of eyes and liair, and the same favorite radio or television program. The girls then assembled to listen until noon to Mrs. Elli- son, who spoke on how to be a "Golden Girl." She told them, "You don't have to have perfect features to be beautiful." By telling the girls their fea- tures were a part of them, and" that they should make the best of them, and include them as a part of their personalities, sta emphasized her statement. A "Golden Girl" has poise, self-confidence, is Interested in other people, is sunny and femi- nine, and accepts responsibil- ity, Mrs. Ellison told the 4-Hers.. "You need to and Mrs. Ellison did as she encour- aged the girls to strive for all phases leading tiicm towards the goal of becoming a "Golden Girl." After an hour's lunch break, Mrs. Ellison showed the girls how to walk and sit properly and how to get in and out of cars properly to avoid embar- rassing moments. Proper use o! make-up was the-final topic Mrs. Ellison con- centrated on. Donna Schaeffer, an assist- ant leader from ths Psyche- delic Sewers 4-H clothing club from Medicine Hat, was the model Mrs. Ellison used for demonstrating make-up from the basics of skin cleaning to the final touches of mascara. Mrs. Ellison, who lies worked with facial make-up for 20 years, including four years doing stage make-up, said, "It's fun to try different things on people and to see how they re- act to having make-up on them." Tlie girls thai carried hints about walking and smiling from Mrs. Ellison over to the fashion show that followed. Members from the clubs at- tending, modelled everything from little cotton aprons to hot pants to evening dresses to wool coats. As they modelled, Linda Mc- Callum, club project develop- ment supervisor from Edmon- ton, Laura Afgahl from Twin Butts, and Milo Barfuss, 4-H JFW specialist for southern Al- berta, judged for the Queen of the day. Debbie Lee of the Hoping Nimble Needles 4-H club won the title. Her attendant for the day was Patricia Patching of the McNally Tailor Tack 4-H Clothing Club. A most important part of the day, the demonstration compe- tition then followed. Judges for the competition were Miss McCallum and Mr. Barfuss. Six clubs sent a team of two girls to do a team demonstra- tion on the topic of their choice. "Help is on the Way" by Pat- ricia Patching and Cathy Mur- ray won the competition. The girls were presented the Royal Bank silver cup which is passed on from year to year, and each girl received a silver .tray. Chuck Gagne presented them on behalf of the Royal BankC Their demonstration dealt with eight figure problems. The girls had drawigs to illustrate their ideas, and show types of clothing that would help elimi- nate the 'problem. Karen and Sharon Walters of the Hoping Nimble Needles 4-H clothing club with the demon- stration call Furry Fancies were runners up.
