Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THI UTHBMDOI HERALD - Wednesday, Monti 3, 1971 - Waste recycling plan suggested THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE - CHef Casey Scott, one of 10 boys in St. Mary's first male cooking class shows Sandra Bruised Head, left and Carol Many Fingers, two of the four girls in the class how to add the right spice. The class has made food dishes ranging from cinnamon toast to pies, pastries and meat pies. Instructor Vern Myers is plan-ng a year-end buffet prepared by the cooking class for the rest of the high school. Suggestions for a comprehensive waste recycling scheme for Lethbridge and the possibilty of backng pro-recycling, pro-environmental action candidates for city alder-manic and provincial legislature seats were among developments at a Lethbridge recycling meeting Tuesday. About 40 people attended the meeting, sponsored by Pollution Control - Southern Alberta. Moderator was PC-SA chairman Ted Wilson. Frances Schultz, one of three speakers present, said it was both the citizens' and the city's TOsponsbUity to develop a waste re-usage program which takes into account the ways Lethbridge is both the same as and different than other cities. AH of the garbage, litter and sewage produced by Lethbridge residents would then become one bulk supply of natural resources, to be sold for recycling or preferably re-used by cky residents and business- ni Boys learn culinary arts at St. Mary Day School By RIC SVVfflART Herald Staff Writer CARDSTON - On an average day, Room 10 in the St. Mary Day School on the Blood Indian Reserve sounds and looks like all the others, but every Tuesday and Friday 10 male students transform it into a miniature of the Four Seasons kitchen. The 10 students make up the school's first food preparation course for men under the direction of instructor Vern Myers. In the interest of competitive spirits and to balance the two food preparation classes in the school, four girls have been enrolled in the same class. This figure represents 23.6 per cent of the total high school population in the St. Mary school. Enrolment of boys in food preparation Marriage laws key in court case By LARRY BENNETT Herald Staff Writer The question of whether an Mamie marriage law, which would allow a man to have as many as four wives, could be considered bigamy in Canada consumed three and a half hours of the Lethbridge magistrate's court time Monday. Judge A. E. Elford presided over the preliminary hearing of a Calgary man, formerly of West Pakistan. The hearing was held to determine whether a potentially polygamous marriage could constitute a foundation for a charge of bigamy if a man, married under such beliefs, were to marry another woman in Canada. A relative of the man's first wife (his Islam wife) contacted Canadian immigration officials and registered a complaint that the man had married a woman in Lethbridge while he still had a wife in West Pakistan. The preliminary hearing and trial are to be conducted in Lethbridge because the second marriage was performed here. An expert witness told the court an Islamic (Mohammedan) marriage was a contrac- $2.3 million U of L loan guaranteed The Alberta government has given formal notification that it will guarantee a $2.3 million loan to the University of Lethbridge for construction of its 400-bed residence. The loan, acquired from the Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation, had been announced previously and in fact the residences have already been built, as the bottom four floors of the new West Lethbridge campus structure. CMHC loans can be issued using land as collateral, or else using the provincial government as a guarantor. The guarantee system provides the lowest interest rates. tual agreement and not a church sanctified institution as it is in the Christian world. He explained Islamic beliefs would allow a man to have as many as four wives. The marriage ceremony is not performed in a church, nor does a priest officiate. The ceremony is conducted by a Maulvi - a man who is not a priest, but who has a great knowledge of the religion (a semi priest). The ceremony is considered a very confidential experience to be heard only by the couple being married and two witnesses. The ceremony is completed when the Maulvi asks the man, "Do you take this woman for your wife?" three times, each time he must answer yes. The ceremony may be held in front of a group of people, but the questions are asked in a low tone, so only the couple and the witnesses may hear. Before the marriage may be consumated the man's family must pay the prospective wife a dowry, (called a mahar) or make some agreement about when it will be paid to her. The amount of the mahar is determined by how well the couple know each other and how rich their famlies are. Under Islamic law divorce is a simple matter. To gain a divorce the husband need only say the taliq. The taliq may be said two ways; the husband may tell his wife "I divorce thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee," or he may simply say "I divorce thee irrevocably." When the taliq has been said the marriage is at an end, the man does not have to continue to support his ex-wife, nor is he obligated for the care of the children. Islamic law says a man may not re-marry an ex-wife again until she has been married and divorced again. If the mother is unable to support the children after the divorce they are raised by the mother's parents. Judge A. E. Elford said there are few precedent cases to aid him in his decision, but he had some doubt about the innocence of the man and directed he stand trial for the charge of bigamy at the April 12 seating of the Alberta Supreme Court in Lethbridge. courses in Lethbridge high schools is considerably lower, with 18 or 3.3 per cent in Winston Churchill High School, 23 or 1.8 per cent at Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and 21 or 2.3 per cent at Catholic Central High School. Food preparation and home economics is a big part of the St. Mary School curriculum, with two classes making up 80 per cent of the high school population. The other class has 14 girls enrolled, with instruction from Mrs. Alvin Polen-chek. "The course deals with all aspects of food," said Mr. Myers. "The students learn the uses of food in the body system, the science of food dealing with nutrition for body requirements, and proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and minerals and how they are needed for body functions. "They learn how to plan meals according to the daily needs of the body." He said the food preparation title comes from the intent of the course to teach the students the proper use of food to get the necessary value from it. "In this line especially, the students learn to distinguish the better types of food and how to use low cost food to the best advantage," he said. Mr. Myers said the purpose of the course was two-fold. "The student, gains something he can use for his personal satisfaction and it also prepares him for more advanced courses if he decides he would enjoy cooking as a career. "It will give the student a broader education as well as a sampling of how interesting cooking can be." The practical aspect of the course is dealt with each week with all types of dishes prepared by the students under the careful supervision of Mr. Myers. "These boys have prepared pastries, pies, meat pies and full course meals. "The plan is to have a year-end buffet for the whole high school with food prepared by the class." Homer Young Pine, 19, said he enrolled in the course for a new experience. "I enjoy coming to class and I hope to take some advanced classes if I get the opportunity." Martin Heavy Head, 18, said he took the course because "I like to eat. It gives me some personal satisfaction." THE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION BOARD, ALBERTA FIRST AID CLASS LETHBRIDGE SCANDINAVIAN HALL 229 12th Street "C" North March 8-9-10-11-15-16-17-18, 1971 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. (mornings) 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. (evenings) (Two classes daily to accommodate shift workers) NO CHARGE FOR WORKMEN UNDER THE ACT 400 attend Oddfellows clinics eye The free eye screening clinics to test four and five year old children for Amblyopia (lazy - eye) have been completed in the city. Sponsored by the Indepen-dant Order of Oddfellows, the clinics were held in seven schools and four kindergartens. Results of the clinics showed 30 of the 400 children tested should have further examinations from professional eye examiners. Members of Dominion Re-be kah Lodge No. 41 and Faith Rebekah Lodge No. 93 assisted the Oddfellows in this new community service program. The clinics will be held again next year with the times and dates to be announced. One of the people attending the meeting suggested fielding or supporting political candidates who were pledged to the philosophies of PC-SA and to environmental preservation in general, who would work directly for the association in developing government control legislation forcing recycling of waste material. Sylvia Campbell, another of the speakers, listed several ways that Lethbridge residents can now recycle their garbage. PC-SA will accept bundled I newspapers once each month for delivery to a local florist (call 328-6502 for more information); Hospitals, nursing homes and various offices with waiting rooms will take recent magazines, which are "recycled" by becoming available to more people; used books may be sold to used book stores in Lethbridge; and egg cartons can be traded to New Farmers' Market. RETURNABLE BOTTLES Pop bottles can be purchased in most stores on a deposit-and-refund basis, and the consumer can avoid purchase of no-deposit, no-return bottles; most Lethbridge bottling firms (see the telephone Yellow pages) will take back bottles for the deposit in bulk quantities; The Salvation Army accepts preserving jars; wine-making stores will take wine and liquor bottles and jugs; and the Dominion Glass Co., in Red-cliff, Alta. will accept most kinds of glass. The Salvation Army and the YWCA will accept used clothing; The Alberta Brewers' Agents bottle depot at 135 13th St. N. will buy and pick up all beer amd cider cans; other metals, including copper, aluminum, brass, cast iron, steel and lead is accepted by city scrap dealers; Tin cans (such as fruit and juice containers) cannot yet be recycled, but can be flattened and then take up much less volume; Most household food garbage and newspapers can be composted in a number of ways, then used in backyard gardens, or given to neighbors or friends with gardens. Composting can be done in the basement or on a porch or balcony, with material simply placed in heavy-duty plastic bags. Jim Wilson, the third speaker at the meeting, described a number of recycling systems being used in other cities. He pointed out that during the Second World War, 60 per cent of all waste paper was recycled, but last year only 20 per cent was recycled - and the same type of figures can be applied to the metal, glass and other industries. He said several city newspapers offer free space in their classified advertising sections for firms either collecting or using any type of waste material for recycling purposes. NEWSPRINT RECYCLED A few large newspapers in the U.S. use recycled newsprint for their regular newspaper editions. New York City Is planning to use 5,500 tons of recycled paper as its stationery supply this year, and Mr. Wilson suggested Lethbridge city council could adopt the same measures, as could the schools, university and college. In wood, New York garbage trucks pick up newspapers and magazines every week, and is considering purchase of its own paper processing machines to make the paper more marketable. In Europe, utilities companies burn some trash to generate steam and electric power. The same process could be used in Alberta in order to preserve natural gas supplies. Glass can be pulverized and mixed with tar to make a durable and safe asphalt for pav- ing parking lots and roads. This could become extremely significant in Alberta during the next few years, Mr. Wilson said, because crushed glass could be used as a substitute for gravel in part of the province's $400 million grid road paving project - and riverbed gravel could be saved. Sewage sludge - the solid residue from sewage treatment plants - could be pipelined to strip mining operations and to farmland for about $20 a ton, using a system now in effect in Chicago. Mrs. Schultz, discussing the Lethbridge scene, said paper could be collected regularly through several means including on regular garbage collection days, and sold for recycling by the city, to recover the extra costs, She said Madison, Wisconsin now does so. PAPER BALER The Lethbridge brewery will also provide use of its paper baler for cardboard products, she said, and a �>mmunity-op-trated composting system could be initiated. Mrs. Schultz said Toronto composts its leaves. She said a paper baler can be bought from an Edmonton firm for about $3,500. It would be portable, so could be driven from house to house. Dr. A. E. Palmer suggest perhaps an interested city resident could do this as a private business, or contract with the city to collect papers and magazines so they wouldn't be burned. Mrs. Schultz said that until a community-wide system is put into effect, many wastes such as glass bottles will be difficult for individuals to recycle; however, PC-SA or other groups could collect them in large quantities, which would then become economical to ship to people who can use them. OUR OSCAR 2-27 "If city council is going to ban firecrackers I'm taking up the trumpet." SOUL DAY BANQUET - Students at the Gilbert Paterson Junior High School dressed the part for their SouI'Day study or racial prejudice Tuesday. Several students, part of a skit, dressed in blackface and southern clothing. The banquet featured southern food and old southern recepies were used. Students have Soul Day to consider prejudices By JIM WILSON Herald Education Writer Most people in Lethbridge never experience prejudice directed against them, and fewer experience recognition of their own prejudices against others. Both experiences are necessary in order to nropertly understand racial discrimination, and at least one Lethbridge school class has1 gained some first-hand inklings of the emotions involved. Twenty-seven Grade 9 students in Sharon Gibb's sociology class at Gilbert Paterson Junior High School have been studying race relations, and one of their projects was "Soul Day," held in the school Tuesday. The students heard a tape recording by American Black civil rights worker and comedian Dick Gregory, and took part in several discussions. They also organized, among other activities, a "soul food banquet," including several readings, skits and prayers illustrating how it feels to be part of a prejudiced-iagainst minority group. The class prepared most of the banquet dishes at home, including slightly modified forms of catfish stew and caterpillar slush, and exact recipes of cornbread, short ';V bread and delicious peanut pie. The skit, which ran through the noon-hour in brief scenes, involved a Black family arrested for robbery on cir-I cumstamtial evidence, p r i- marily because of color prejudice. The reading excerpts, all selected by the individual students, came from speeches by civil rights workers, by people describing the living conditions experienced by Blacks and Indians, and by various journalists. One of the most telling statements suggested that the Black children being discriminated against today and held from receiving quality education, could have been the person destined to discover a cure for cancer. Traffic deaths hit low Among other activities the social science class has taken part in was a direct experience of prejudice. Mrs. Gibb divided the students' into blue-eyed and dark-eyed groups, and then defined the dark-eyes as the superior beings. The blue-eyes were sent to the back of the room and generally ignored in class discussion. At first the project was a game, but soon real feelings and actions of discrimination developed, and Mrs. Gibb said it took a while after the class was over for feelings to settle down. She said she hopes to repeat the experiment, but the second time the blue-eyes would be defined as* the superior beings. One problem could develop: Mrs. Gibb's green eyes would then define her as inferior to half of her class. January 1971 traffic deaths in Alberta were a 10 - year low point. The unofficial death count for January is 10, reports the Alberta Safety Council. This is the lowest monthly death toll since 1961 when nine were killed. January's extremely bad road conditions may have been an important contributing factor for the low count. Many people avoided travel if at all possible, or were extra careful if they had to travel. By contrast, 26 people died in January, 1970. Cadet news The Lethbridge Air Cadets Squadron No. 1, will hold a regular parade at 7:15 tonight in the 20th Battery Armories at Kenyon Field.
