Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE LITHBRIDGS HERAID Tutsetoy, 30, 1770- TF An Escape Into Fantasy For Children, Study Shows VICTORIA (CP) Watching television is an escape into fan- tasy for most children, accord- ing to a study being conducted by a University of Victoria soci- ologist. "The trend is quite Dr. Goodwin Clm said in a re- cent inter new. "Most of them watch television to get enter- tainment and relaxation. The things they prefer are fantasy- type programs." He said more than half the youngsters who filled out ques- tionnaires for his study said their favorite programs were those which feature violence. The sociologist began his study about a year ago with a Canada Council grant, and plans to wind it up early this fall. "Our main objective is to learn about television's role in the socialization process of a child." In the past, Dr. Chu said, three major forces shaped a child's life: family, friends and school. Now there is a fourth: televi- sion. On questionnaires. 337 Victo- ria youngsters in Grades 6, 8 and 9 were asked to rate those j doesn't, and 36 per cent were four influences according to ira- not sure, portance in the following goals: Program preferences ran as how to get along with others; follows: crime and westerns, 50 how to obtain knowledge; howipsr cent; comedies and car- to be a good citizen; how to be toons, 24 per cent; family [happy j shows, 20 per cent; news and They rated family, friends documentary, 5 per cent. Stunt Driving Dangerous Career and school, in that order, as im- portant factors in the first three. As for happiness, television was rated higher than school, but not as high as family and friends. 'GOT THEIR KICKS' Asked what they thought they get out of television. 51 per cent mentioned things like violence, relaxation, and entertainment. Dr. Chu interpreted this as meaning they "got their kicks" by watching TV. Another 25 per cent said they didn't know what they get, and 20 per cent mentioned some kind of knowledge or lesson to j be learned. Asked whether television por- trays life as it is, 30 per cent said it does, 30 per cent said it Local Woman To Attend UWC Meet Mrs. H. M.

ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 Viewing time averaged three hours per student daily, Monday to Thursday. One student said he put in about 25 hours in front o! the set in that four-day pe- riod. On weekends the average ranged from four to five hours daily. Dr. Chu said he learned most children would rather play with friends that watch TV. But he also believes children who have poor relations with their parents are more likely to turn to televi- sion. Dr. Chu, who studied in Tai- wan for his BA and took his MA and PhD at Stanford, said his study is likely the first of its kind in Canada. The results will be published in a sociology jour- By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Jan Freeman doesn't get an opportunity to work up to per- fection in her work. Jan is a stunt driver for a daredevil show and her life depends upon doing each stunt right the first time. In an interview she was asked how long it takes her to learn a new stunt. She re- plied, "You may go over it for half an houi' or so but when you do it you have to do it right." Jan and Debbie Nelson are the only two female drivers in the Olie Anderson Daredevil show which will play in the city Wednesday, and the only women in this type of show in North America that the girls know of. Jan described one of the hair-raising stunts she does in the show. "It's called the slide-for-life. We put on a slide pad made out of leather and ride the back of car. We hang on until the car gets up enough speed, and drop down to slide through a pool of fiery gasoline. "On a big track the car may hit 60-70 said Jan. "so we don't really have time to catch fire ourselves." She wears only a helmet with no faceplate, and without fire- proof clothing. The stunt driver's wear only a seat belt when doing stunts. Harness, explains Jan, would old the driver upright and In a sport where one of flic big- tost dangers is the roof caving n, or fire occurring, they have o be able to move quickly. "You can go through the vindslu'eld, too, so if you lean o one side you're out of the vay of both the windshield and the roof." Jan does another stunt with ire called the board wall. The .hint man lies down spread- eagled on the hood of a car rilh toes tucked around the indow. This is the only means of securing the stuntman. "If you get scared and let hose toes go, you'll fall off" laid Jan. The car Is aimed at a board vail 6 ft. wide and four feet high, which is on fire. Jan she's lost a few eye- ashes and eyebrows and singed some hair on that stunt Bruises are frequent on the stunt circuit which takes Jan and her husband, another stunt Iriver, on the road six monihs a year from May to October Her major accident was a broken arm which took about 'our months to strengthen suf- riciently to take on the slide- 'or-life again. A few stunts Jan doesn't think a woman could do for ack of strength. "We get toss- ed around enough as it is, but n something like the head-on collision, I just don't think we could take it." Jan hails from Calgary and she and her husband, newly- reds of March, will make their lome there in the off season. She keeps in shape during the winter with skiing, swimming, and skating. Although Jan's only been vith the show for two she says she's learned a lot about car safety while stunt Jfiving. "You drive much smoother which is necessary for preci- sion driving, and learn to han- dle a car properly." The seven stunt drivers care for their own cars. Jan doesn't, she just drives and rides them. Lorna Birkdafe, left, pre.vi sociation for service. Elaine Wesley right with bouquet from national as- Will the biplane (a) get the mail through in time?
