Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta March 6, 1974 -THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -15 A Icoholism facilities will provide better treatment STANDOFF Better treatment for alcoholics on the Blood Reserve is in sight, with the establishment of a dry-out ward at the Indian hospital in Cardston, and a halfway house in Standoff in the planning stages. A four-bed ward has already been set aside in the Cardston Indian hospital and nurses will be going to Edmonton soon for training by the Alberta Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Commission. Phillip Aberdeen, alcoholism counsellor with Kainai Community Services, said the ward allows his staff to reach hard-core alcoholics who would not voluntarily seek counselling. In his experience, many people with drinking problems up in jail, where they don't belong. "Alcoholism is an illness and you can't punish someone with an illness by sending him to he said. But alcoholics still need a place where they can sober up and it would be better if they co'uld be taken to the dry-out ward if arrested, Mr. Aberdeen said. He is now negotiating with the alcoholism commission and the federal health and welfare department for funds to establish and operate a halfway house on the reserve. Full field on hand for races BLAIRMORE (CNP Bureau) The first Blairmore Lions Club class C snow machine races attracted many racers from Southern Alberta and British Columbia. Winners included: Family stock 300, Dennis Voelans of Fernie and Blayse Brater of Blairmore. 400 event, Terry Taillefer of Fernie and Glen Wagner of Coleman. 440, Ed Ryckman of Elkford and Lawrence Bailey of Coalhurst. Family stock junior, Colin Hall of Sparwood and Rick Mitchell of Fernie. Garry Enzol of Frank and Jim Wright of Coleman took first and second in the stock 340 and the superstock 340. Ed Ryckman of Elkford and Ron Bird of Pincher Creek won the stock 440 event. Ray Cota of Fernie and Ervin, Duncan of Lethbridge copped first and second in the superstock 440 while the ju- nior superstock event went to Brad Jones of Grassy Lake and Don Turnbull of Taber. Coleen Tucker of Sparwood took the "powder puff" event and the runner-up was Pat Jones of Grassy Lake. The band can't be approached for money, Mr. Aberdeen said, because it's difficult to mix politics and alcoholism treatment. The detoxification centre, or halfway house, would develop a treatment program similar to that used at the commission's Henwood Rehabilitation Centre, north of Edmonton. The Herald District Specialty teachers difficult to hire at Forty-Mile BOW ISLAND (Staff) County of Forty-Mile superintendent of schools Clifford R. Elle says the 22 teacher resignations last year was "quite high." But he told the annual ratepayers' meeting here there is "no particular reason" for the high termination of teachers. He said it is considerably harder to hire specialist teachers, (band instruction, home economics, than those in regular academic lines. Mr. Elle told the ratepayers the average teacher salary is with the new schedule effective last Jan. 1. His annual report says the average was prior to the new schedule. It lists as the minimum and as the maximum. A reading program under Allen Doig of Etzikom, reading teacher-consultant in schools at Burdett, Conquer- ville, Etzikom and Manyberries, is "working out fairly well from indications that we have had from some test results it seems to be quite a worthwhile thing." He said emphasis is being placed on younger pupils with the philosophy being, "get them off to a good start." Special reading programs are for the pupil who is "not interested at all." He agreed with a ratepayer that television has hurt children's ability to read, the prime skill in acquiring an education.

For those of you who own a passenger car, 1974 brings a pleasant change in the matter of license plates. This year you won't have to struggle desperately trying to remove your old license plates and replace them with new ones. Instead this is what will happen: You will receive a renewal form in the mail. After filling it out you take or mail it, along with the license fee to an issuing office or a Treasury Branch office. There you will receive a new vehicle registration and a set of stickers. The stickers then go on the lower right hand corners of your present plates and that's all there is to it. This revalidation program will apply only to passenger vehicles registered before 1974. If you are registering your car for the first time then you will receive 1973 plates plus the 1974 stickers. Owners of trucks, trailers, motor cycles and other vehicles will receive a new blue and yellow plate for 1974. HIGHWAYS 8, TRANSPORT Motor Vehicle Branch ;
