Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, June 30, 1973 vn Summerfun Community summer program Alberta to host Fun Clubs all the city were busy this week, with a va- riety of activities. Boys and girls from several playgrounds visited the Sir Alexander Gait Museum and others swam at the Henderson Lake Pool. Other visits to surrounding towns, to the police station and various local industries are planned for future weeks. This week's special event on SWday morning was a swim for all Fun Club participants at the Henderson pool. Over 200 6 to 8 year-old boys and girls enjoyed the swim on a cool, but pleas- ant morning. Next week, a Wheel Day Parade is planned. Children from every play- ground in the city participate in these special events. Par- ents are always welcome to join in the fun. Arts and crafts are a major part of the Fun Club program. This week, the children at Lakeview made paper mache puppets and Gyro park chil- dren were busy with collages, decorated bottles, colored mac- aroni necklaces and pictures made by arranging paint-soak- ed string on paper. "Norbridge children made pictures from natural objects they found on their playground and children at Rideau made musical instru- ments. Day Camp: Canoeing was one of the high- lights of participating in the Henderson Lake Day Camp this Four canoes are avail- able for the children attending the Day Camp to use every day. Qualified canoe instruc- tors are on hand to teach these 9 to 12 year-old boys and girls how to use a canoe safely and properly. Last Friday, the theme for the Day Camp's special day was Japanese. Boys and girls dressed in Japanese style cloth- ing and in the afternoon were treated to a judo demonstra- tion. Yesterday the theme for the day was a rather odd combina- tion, but a great deal of fun was had by all. All children came to camp dressed in their pajamas for pajarna day. In addition, they celebrated an Australian Christmas by ex- changing chocolate bars in a traditional Australian manner. During the week, an interest- ing arts and crafts project was the construction of life-size koala bears which later joined the celebration of Christmas- in-June. Registrations are still being I taken for future weeks of Day Camp. Camp is open to chil- dren 9 to 12 years of age at a cost of per week. Since Monday is a holiday, next week's camp will run from Tuesday to Friday. Approximately 240 delegates are expected to attend the an- nual national meeting of the Victorian Order of Nurses to be held in Edmonton. The announcement was made during a recent meeting of the Lethbridge branch VON by Miss Margaret Standewick, re- gional director in Alberta. She said the June 1974 meet- ing will mark the first time Al- berta has hosted a national convention, and the first time the convention has taken place in western Canada. Among business discuss- ed was the introduction of new uniforms to be worn by the VON. The uniforms will be raspberry in color and will re- place the standard blue worn until recently.

BULLIS 318 28 St. South Leth OTTAWA The federal health department lias taken steps to control the sedative methaqualone, known in drug circles as "Tha Love and to outlaw the sedative pheny- clidine, better known to some as "The Peace Pill.'' The government has also an- nounced a ban on further sale or importation of headache and pain-killer products containing phenacetin in combination with salicylates such as ASA. Phenacetin has been shown to produce kidney damage in persons who use it in excess. Phencyclidine. described by federal drug officials as a "w i 1 d psychedelic'1 which sometimes produces "irration- al, unpredictable and aggres- sive behavior" and hallucina- tions, has been transferred from for 2 days only Your child's portrait made with Eastman "PROFESSIONAL" Ektacolour Film and materials and our all new DYNAMIC COLOUR background assures you full colour fidelity and breathtaking realism never before possible.

This means possession of the drug is now illegal. To date, the drug had been approved for use by veterinar- ians as an anesthetic. It was most notably used as the knock- out ingredient in sedation darts for large animals. But during the past 18 months, the drag has been widely abused as a psychedelic in major cities across Canada and the United States, accord- ing to federal drug authorities. Dr. A. B. Morrison, assistant deputy minister of health, said here that no known deaths have been attributed to use of the drug. But he said tha the serious adverse side effects, which have societal as well as health implications, have re- sulted in Ottawa's decision to ban the drug. Meihaqualone, a non-barbi- bituate hypnotic sedative sold under the trade names "Quaal- ude" and "Mandrax" and also known as "The Love has been switched from a prescrip- tion drug to a controlled drug like the barbituates many abusers are suspected of sub- stituting methaqualone for it. Dr. Morrison said that during the last few months, abuse o methaqualone has become "runaway problem" in sue! cities as Toronto, Montreal am especially Vancouver. The drug is used to produc a euphoria, supposedly withou any sedative effects. Dr. Morrison said there is evidence that the drug is physi cally addictive. Other scientists have suggested in recent weeks that the drug, when, taken by it self or in combination with alco- hol, can cause significant im pairment of driving skills man} hours after the euphoria effects disappear. Dr. Morrison also said there is evidence that the drug is being abused in all major cities across Canada and that the drug is being diverted from legal to illegal channels, often- times for export to the United States. rpHE Americans have slip- ped a notch or two in my estimation over this ter- ribly dreary Watergate busi- ness. Until now, I have labored under the impression that in the States, when they go they go big. And what is bigger than a full scandal? Advance publicity was in the usual, efficient, super- colossal manner, but the show failed to live up to ex- pectations. When it came right down to the old nitty-gritty, the PR men found they had nothing to work with. It's hard to create a fa- vorable image, or even an in- teresting one, when the big guys turn petty and plant a little bitty bug in the losers' pad and at that it was only to find out what tactics the opposition had in mind. When the highlight of an in- vestigation turns out to be Maureen Dean handing a wild-cherry cough drop to her hubby to soothe his throat as he testifies, you have to ad- mit that the new breed of po- litical cat down there is sim- ply not living up to the im- age of his glorious anteced- ents. I can't help feeling Andrew Jackson and his Rachel, after fighting the big political hassel over the legality of their marriage, are right this minute busting their harp- strings in disgust at this latest government squib. Grover Cleveland, whose opposition in the presidential campaign created a furore over his private affairs and illegitimate daughter, must be whirling in his grave most likely boring his way through to Australia. Warren Hard i n g's regime, accepting bribes for oil leases, started a tempest in a teacup and made it to the history books with a little in- cident called the Teapot Dome affair. Which only goes to show that even somebody saddled with a middle name like Gamaliel can still make a respectable splash in a mud puddle. Even Teddy and Franklin Delano, with their discreet little lady friends, must be figuring the silver lining of American politics has turned into an ominous dark cloud, as they cross halos over the appalling lack of finesse shown by the players in this trite, modern-day fiasco. It's sad to see the country so badly upstaged not only by its own past, mind you, but by other nations as well. Just look at all those jolly- good-show English lords ca- vorting around various excit- ing parts of the world with breath taking international call girls, who may or may not be undercover agents bent on extracting state se- crete from the playboy peers. When lords come into a scandal that's class. Then there is our own fair- ly recent hubbub, wherein our Canadian politicians showed a keener sense cf what is due their stature. Remember Ger- da Munsinger, one-time Ger- man beauty queen who fig- ured in tlrose sex-and-espion- age allegations with a cer- tain former minister? We've got 'em beat hands down! Really, I hate to say this, but today's administration south of the border simply isn't with-it I feel that if they can't be flamboyant and colorful, they might at least be good: Good politicians. I am told, are the land who know how to put their oar in without rock- ing the boat! catenae local k ar of The Women of the Moose No. 328 will hold their regular meet- ing Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the Moose Hall.
