Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THl USTHBRIDG! Hf RAID Thursday, March 8, 1973 Just Jude By JUDE TUR1C ance compa fellas' paychecks. Althougli it may not be so important to you now, wait a few years and soon those car insurance premiums will be- come a thorn in yo'.ir side. What every fella doesn't know, is why he's always told not to speed. Once that driver's licence is in his hands and tiiat car is on the road, it's just natur- al to develop a lead foot. Slapping on the worn-out about speeding being against the law a danger to life and limb does sweet nothing for the 17 year old with his first car. Granted, all these things are true and valid arguments. But for all the good they do, the lecturers might as well save their breath. What should be stressed are the after-effects of stunting, speeding, failing to yield, or even backing into a buddy in the parking lot. If the young man Just starting out in the driving world figures a car is a blessing and a great way to get a date; he's right tially.. What it also is, is a passei of money for insurance, and a bigger and better passei onco traffic convictions start rolling in. Take for example an ordin- ary guy, the proud owner of liability, accident and death; leaves the insurance cash reg- ister bulging with That's Hie good news. Tho bad comes in with the in- evitable convictions many fellas manage to chalk up through the years. Surcharge becomes a dirty word, with an easy 25 per cent tacked on to the origina for little things such as too many speeding convic tions. And the exuberant drive can look forward to possib'. additions anywhere from SO to 100 per cent if he proves to be a bad boy behind the wheel. Where does it all lead? It sends a huge tidal wave of fat bills floating into the in- surance offices, wliile the payee sits back wondering how he'll manage tho next, all-too-soon premium. Thinking all will be well next year is a sad misconcep- tion. A driver's record is taken Into account for three so all those convictions pile up fast and high, and go down painfully slow. Lectures on the young per- son's moral obligation to obey the rules are futile. Appealing to his money sense might not be. Speed? Sure, if you want to. But guys, keep in mind, you'll pay. Boy will you pay! Red Cross nurses start summer runs There aren't any men on the team, and there never have been. But It's not a women's lib organization.

By PETER MUCCINI LONDON (AP) A quiet revolution at Scotland -Yard has given London's women bobbies equality with men on the city's police force. The gals can even be boss and some units they are. For 54 years, the women were confined to the tradition- al female side of law enforce- ment; caring for lost children escorting women prisoners dealing with prostitutes. But all that is changing, and quietly. A week ago Monday Scotland Yard c'osed its A4 de partment, the section compris ing London's 661 women police The women were assigned among Scotland Yard's othe Bailments. Full integration of women be- ame official during the wcek- _nd, says the Scotland Yard erwspaper The Job. Although .ot secret, the new order at Icotland Yard would have gone all but unnoticed except for the oport in The Job. Under the new system, wo- iien can and do heed precinct statioas and homicide squads. said a spokesman at the Yard, leadquarters of London's met- ropolitan police force. "Women now are eligible for the com- missioner's job." The commissioner is the su- preme boss of the Yard and ts force of constables who cover the 787.7 squajre miles that make up Metropop- tan London, with its population of more than eight million. Commander Shirley Beck'e, who headed A4, commented: "We are not sorry (o see tfie branch going. Women now can take on any job."

In January the> project, in- 'olving 13 preschool children, moved to a more convenient lo- ation at Uie General Stewart School on Corvette Crescent. Each child is trained indivi- lually in the area of his spe- cific need, said Mrs. Johansen, irogram director. Instruction is provided by Judy Dow, B.Ed, and Shannon r'ooks, and covers the skills necessary to learn reading, writing, arithmetic and articu- late speech. The aim of t lie remedial classes is to alleviate learning difficulties before tho children encounter additional problems on entering school, Mrs. Johan- sen explained. "We've got two (children) with minimal problems that I think will lit into Grade 1 with very few problems. "Some will need special guid- ance when they get into first ade. Some we will have for s more year. "The main thing is, it will necessary to alert the teach- that the child has had pre- hool training."
