Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, March 7, 1974 Public opinions must' at hearing By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer Southern Albertans will get one chance, and one chance only, to publicly express their beefs and bouquets about their local library systems. A special hearing will take place with this in mind on March 27 at the new Lethbridge Public Library from 7 to 10 p.m. Margaret Wheeler, a member of the advisory committee to the Alberta Library Study, says the people of this area should make a special effort to be in attendance to "speak up and let it be known what they want, what they're not getting and what they'd like to see" in their libraries. She says Alberta lags far behind the other provinces in educating members of urban and rural communities as to the services libraries can provide. Leaders in the field are British Columbia and Ontario. The libraries study was initiated in May of last year, with a survey conducted across the province at various types of libraries. It geographically covered points from this area, to Peace River and Elk point in the north. Public, university, college, research, school, hospital and special libraries were all visited in an attempt to determine what problems were being encountered. Co-ordinating services among libraries was listed as a priority, as was a need for qualified personnel to run the facilities and more money for the purchase of books, other information material says Mrs. Wheeler. Libraries in smaller communities, which are usually run by volunteer help also need to be made aware of back up resources which are available to them through larger centres. Mrs. Wheeler says people need to be educated to the pleasure of using information centres, but in turn these centres must be able to supply the desire which has been encouraged. Through a uniting of library forces, the duplication of effort in book purchases would be decreased, while increased coverage of a wider spectrum of information could be achieved. Notification of formalized briefs should be made by Friday to the Downey Research Associates in Edmonton to allow time for open discussion at the hearings. The Lethbridge meeting will be the only one of its kind held in South Alberta. As a result of the hearing, points from briefs presented will be extracted, with findings and suggestions recommended to the minister of culture, youth and recreation, Horst Schmid.

CANADA Herald Family Ag-Expo vegetarians comment on virtues of the meatless diet The art ofshishkebob Worth drooling over are kebobs prepared barbeque style. By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The skyrocketing price of meats in Canada contributed significantly to the increased cost of living last year and more Lethbridge residents have joined the ranks of a growing number of vegetarians as a result. Members of the Lethbridge Seventh Day Adventist Church are manning a booth at Ag- Expo expounding the virtues of eating only vegetables and fruits. And judging by the number of people sampling vegetable protein, simulated meat patties and soybean milk, the group has something to offer. Neva Strand says the church has adopted the vegetarian attitude because this type of food was the original food given to man in the garden of Eden. But the church follows the vegetarian guidelines today for health reasons, not religious, she said. The high beef prices in recent months has added impetus to the vegetarian movement. A few years ago practitioners were looked on a crackpots or freaks. Although not all members of the church are strict vegetarians, there are a significant number, she said. Mrs. Strand said the main foods for vegetarians are cereal grains (wheat, oats, nuts, soybeans and rapeseed oils. But because of Canada's climate and geographic location, vegetarians can't always get all the foods needed for a complete balanced diet. So many vegetarians also eat, milk and eggs. Nancy Childers, a Lethbridge housewife and a member of the church, said she follows the vegetarian diet for her family all the time. A typical dinner would include potatoes, a patty made from a cottage cheese or soybean base, glutin (protein from any vegetable and lots of fresh greens. Coffee and tea are not included on the .menu-but milk, soybean milk and postum are allowed. She stressed the church doesn't just forsake meat. Chocolate, refined white sugar, soft drinks, spices and condiments (mustard and- catsup) are also frowned on. Mrs. Strand said vegetarians use herbs to improve the flavor of the meals because it takes much more work to make a meal flavorful when meat isn't included. Mrs. Strand claimed if a vegetarian diet if followed completely, a person can get all the essential amino acids, proteins, minerals and vitamins in addition to carbohydrates starches and fats. But because there isn't any animal food on the diet, the vegetarians eat low calorie meals. To show other women in the community the virtues of vegetarian living, Mrs. Strand will be holding a special cooking school. The date and location will be announced later, depending on the response from the community. At the school, participants will be given cooking demonstrations, recipes to follow and will be able to hear lectures from doctors and dentists. Classes are now held for church members but facilities are limited. Economists show way to manV heart The way to a man's heart is through his stomach and both aspiring man chas- ers or seasoned home cooks can learn some-, thing new at the home economists cooking demonstration at Ag-Expo. Set for 3 p.m. and p.m. each day, two home economists, one with the Alberta department of agriculture and one with Canadian Western Natural Gas. Co. Ltd., will prepare two recipes. In the first session, Betty Donner of Taber, district home economist with agriculture department, showed how to prepare granola, a cooked dry cereal. Using a prescribed amount of ingredients, subject to the tastes of the cook, Ms. Donner combined rolled oats, nuts, honey, rapeseed oil, powdered milk and wheat germ. When all the ingredients were mixed, they were baked for an hour. To ensure that the people viewing the demonstration could sample the granola, Ms. Donner had a tray prepared in advance. In the second session, Sheila Neiman, home economist with the gas company, prepared fresh Alberta lamb in shiskabob form, using natural gas barbecues. Beef liver was also prepared. Ms. Neiman says she hopes to let people know that tasty lamb and liver can be prepared easily. Through variations in preparation, people can be taught to get away from strictly pork and beef menus.
