Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THI UTHBRIDGI HERALD - Friday, March 12, 1971 LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By KATHY EROMAN LCI GFSUNG is. Spring Js happiness. You can hear it coming on the Pan pipes of the wind. Spring is an awakening. Let the Child in you be amused. Every person has a rational, logical objective, responsible, calm Adult self. But, every person also has a wide-eyed Child self, hidden deep down somewhere. The Child is the most fantastic creation in the world - full of wonder at the joys and beauties of the Universe. Curious. Perfectly happy with the simplest of things. Bursting with energy and doing-ness. Direct. Sincere. Innocent. Imaginative. Bouncingly alive. Impulsive. Good-hearted. And ever so much more. Have you ever watched children playing? A doorstep is transformed into a palace at the wink of an' eye; a mound of soil, Mount Everest And, to them, it really is. Children don't do things so that they will get done - they do them for the pure joy of doing it - putting their whole selves into it - even if it's work. Sure, you can grumblingly wash the dishes at home. Or, you can imagine yourself a seventeenth century scullery maid - and wash the dishes for the table of Henry VIII! 5 May you not gaze down from your lofty adult perch and sneer at the Child - what a world of difference there is between "childish" and "Childlike". So, why not let the Child in you come out - at least once in a while? Spring is flying a kite. Spring is running and running until you flop down on the grass with laughter in your toes. Spring is playing skipping even if it means being an all-day turner. Spring is falling into a lovely slush puddle brimming with icicle tears. Spring is guessing what color the first tulip will be. Spring is reading your chem text outside, even though you're not taking chem this semester. Spring is picking up your brother's guitar and inventing a chord. Spring is looking through an album and remembering ten springs ago. Spring is saying good morning to the very next robin you meet. Spring Is an old couple sitting on a park bench and holding hands. Spring is washing the windows without having been told to. Spring is whistling while you wash the windows. Spring is finding Casseopia. Spring is packing away your winter coat. Spiring is playing Debussy's "Le Petit Berger" and finding out you know what it means. Spring is reading a book in your own little corner. Spring is listening to the grass grow. Sprang is conducting a survey of formic emmets living in Ant Hill No. 913 in your back yard. Spring is writing a story. Spring is closing your eyes and just pretending. Spring is listening to the very first Beatle record you ever bought. Spring is. Congratulations to our absolutely fantastic Clippers for winning the girls' Provincials in basketball.. Last weekend they defeated Grande Prairie by a landslide. Great going, beautiful, beautiful Clippers! Unfortunately, our Rams lost to Magrath on Monday so they didn't make it to the provincials. And thusly ends our basketball season. The Collegian took a giant step forward and published a monster - a great twelve-page edition. Our Chess Club is holding a school-wide tournament in preparation for the city-wide one. Drama Cub is busy rehearsing for the Drama Festival ait the beginning of April. Next week-end brings the Science Fair, and with it, a bustle of frogs, lasers, and mitochondria. Students from junior and senior high schools of southern Alberta (LCI, too!) will be displaying a wide variety of projects. During the Easter holidays, our World Affairs Club is sponsoring the seventh annual Model UN Assembly. Students from all over Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan will represent the various countries and discuss several interesting resolutions dealing with world problems. So, as you can see, LCI is hopping with activities of all kinds - and, textbooks do manage to get used, too! FELIX VERH!

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDG., LETHBRIDGE NAME.................................... ADDRESS ................................ Unisex trend may affect youth's sexual identity NEW YORK (MW) - It's not whether your youngsters wear their hair long or short that counts, it's whether they know which, sex they are. If they're confused about this, says Professor Charles Winick, they might have trouble coming to grips with other things as well. Professor Winick, who describes this blurring of sexual identity in his book, "The New People," views the development with some concern. He believes the look-alike trend, sometimes described as "uni- sex," can only lead to difficulties because people are able to "cope with situations and problems to the extent that they have a clear feeling of their own personal identity." While look-alike hairstyles worn by young men and women have caused considerable furor among parents, school administrators and others, they do not particularly concern Professor Winick, who teaches sociology at the City University of New York. He regards the matter of hairstyles as "inconsequential" and says it's a subject that's easy to ridicule. The really critical component, he asserts, is not the hair but "the confusion of sex roles." And Winick adds, "although men once wore satins, silks and powdered wigs, the way of life, in those times left no dispute as to who was1 masculine and who was feminine." LOVE LOSES MYSTEKY Citing the present tendency to regard neither masculinity nor femininity as an "important dimension," Professor Winick finds lis a result that the relationship between the sexes "lacks fantasy," and that "love has lost its. mystery." Declaring that this is particularly true in Denmark and Sweden - because of their greater sexual equality - he describes life in those countries as "flat, uninteresting and singularly joyless." He also predicts' similar consequences for the United States in "about 10 or 15 years." Although he acknowledges that "it's good for young people to cast about for new forms of social life and various new types of family situations," Professor Winick points out they can adapt to new situations best when they have a clear sense of personal identity. "Central to this identity," he asserts, "is their awareness of being male or female.'.' The more confused the sex roles, he warns, "the greater the possibility of mental and emotional illness." Mrs. Indria Gandhi true daughter of Nehru NEW DELHI (AP) - Five years ago, when the other leaders of India's governing Congress party agreed to name Indira Gandhi prime minister, they thought they had not only a vote-getter but someone sure to toe their line and easy to control. A vote-getter she is, but Mrs. Gandhi turned out a true daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru -tough, independent, determined and a better politician than the men who put her in office. Forty-six months after they picked her, the party's conserv-ative leadership-called the Syndicate-expelled her for "gross indiscipline." Defying them, she split the party, rallied the larger part of it to her side and lined up enough leftist allies in other parties to give her a majority in Parliament and keep her in control of the government. Judging the time was right for a showdown with the conservatives, Mrs. Gandhi dissolved parliament in December and campaigned by plane, helicopter and car across 10,000 miles, speaking to perhaps five million persons and seen by another 10 million lining the routes of her motorcades. VOTE IS TRIUMPH The election returns pouring in today were a triumph for the slim, h an d s o m e 53-year-old woman. Having reversed the decline of the party she inherited from Nehru and Mohandas K-Gandhi, she has. routed her opponents and now has a green light for the socialist programs she prescribes for India. Indira Priya Darshini-meaning "dear to sight"-Nehru was born in her father's home town of Allahabad, in Uttar Pradesh state, Nov. 19, 1917. She had a lonely childhood because her MRS. INDIRA GHANDI parents, especially her father,, were in British prisons much of the time for seeking independence for India. -. When Nehru was not in jail, he was surrounded by politi-cians in the independence cause, and Indira absorbed the politics and the desire for Indian independence that came in 1947. She went to school in India and Switzerland and attended Oxford. Back in India, she quickly became a member of the Congress party and shortly thereafter was sent to prison for 13 months for political activity. She was married in 1942 to Feroze Gandhi, a Lucknow businessman and no kin to the Ma-hatma. After a short honeymoon both were jailed briefly for independence efforts. Their two sons, Rajiv and Sanjay, were born in 1944 and 1946.

One-the son of a surgeon-bad just been examined by his pediatrician and pronounced in good health. He was being taken home by his mother when he died. The other four were found dead in their cribs. The babies all died of a disease about which little is known. It is called "crib death" or "sudden infant death syndrome." Recent research has produced these findings: An estimated 10,000 to 12,000 or about one of 300 American infants die of it each year. But accurate statistics are not available, doctors say, because police often attribute death from the disease to suffocation or respiratory infection. The disease has no boundaries. About the same death rate has been found wherever studies were made, from Belfast to Prague to Manila. The death of an apparently healthy, happy baby often brings more tragedy. Some parents become wracked with guilt feelings, believing they in some way, perhaps through neglect, Alberta Ballet Company The Alberta Bollet Company announces the formation of the Alberta Ballet Company School to be located in Edmonton.

A Edmonton, Alberta have been responsible for the baby's death. But medical authorities have sought to reassure them, saying there is nothing a parent can do at present to recognize and prevent the disease of the infant. "Parents whose babies die of this disease shouldn't feel responsible for their deaths any more than they would if the babies died of cancer," says Dr. A. B. Bergman, a Seattle pediatrician and leading authority on crib deaths. The pediatrician gave this picture of a typical crib death: The baby has' been well or has had a minor cold. He or she is most often between the ages of two weeks and six months, although some older infants are struck. The baby is found dead in bed, having died apparently during sleep. Autopsies show the lungs filled with fluid, red spots on the lungs, spread throughout the chest cavity, and redness of the pharynx. To find the cause of crib deaths, Bergman said more work is needed in neurophysiology, the study of the nervous system. 1 NAME____ ADDRESS . TELEPHONE L Please check the appropriate space.

J Chomp, Chomp WINNIPEG (CP) - Housewives have self-cleaning ovens-now for self-cleaning floors. Susan Gadd, consumer information specialist with the Manitoba agriculture department, says the self-cleaning floors are among the latest developments on the market. One new product, available now in the United States, is a no-wax vinyl flooring that rejects grease, dirt, scuff marks, spills and even floor wax. It requires only sweeping or damp-mopping to keep it clean and shiny. Miss Gadd also describes a floor that "ingests" dirt. Walking on the floor forces the dirt through the flooring into a subfloor space connected to a vacuum system that whisks the dirt away. chauffered limousine back to 24 Sussex Drive for Mrs. Trudeau. After dinner, the Trudeaus walked the half mile home, chatting briefly with photographers who have been staked out waiting for an opportunity to take their pictures since the couple returned from their honeymoon Monday night- 'LET'S JOG* On the way Mr. Trudeau took his wife's arm and said, "Let's jog." But they didn't because of the long, turquoise maxi-coat Mrs. Trudeau was wearing. Jibing at the photographers as he and his wife approached the gates of 24 Sussex, the prime minister told her: "Watch and see how well trained these guys are. When they get to that line, they'll stop dead." He was pointing to the space where the gates would stand if closed. The photographers, forbidden entrance to 24 Sussex grounds for the occasion, did just as he said they would when four large Mounties materialized between the gates as the Trudeaus approached. died in i960, after a heart attack. Mrs. Gandhi then moved in with her father, the prime minister, and while refusing government posts, kept her hand in political affairs by travelling widely and working in many organizations. "I don't like politics," she once said- "I don't like being in the public eye." Nevertheless, she became president of the Congress party in 1959, claiming its leaders "bullied me into it." After her father died in 1964, she moved into the cabinet of Prime Minister Lai Bahadur Shastri. Upon his death two years later, she became prime minister. During the election campaign she expressed her broad political philosophy for India: "Our aim today is to give real meaning to democracy and freedom and see that the fruits'of our development are spread throughout the country and not in a very few hands. We want to have changes in a democratic manner, in which the bad is removed and the good is retained." This confusion of sex roles which pervades our environment, says Professor Winick, would be meeting more opposition if our young people had not been previously prepared for the change. But, he adds, "our culture itself demands that childhood reflect our new values." Specifically, he notes, we're giving our children such "neuter" names as Leslie or Robin, which can apply to either sex. Our baby presents now come in such ambiguous colors as maize or aqua, rather than pink or blue. And there is little differentiation between boys and girls as far as books, toys and clothing are concerned. "Parents in our psychoanaly-Ucally sophisticated times," concludes Professor Winick after describing these changes, "are so tolerant of neutering that they permit crisscrossing of sex roles in children's appearance that would have been considered pathological Just one generation ago." love is... . i. going on a diet if he prefers you slim.
