Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednwday, March West side living is far from dull By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer There are advantages to country living. The serenity, the beauty of deer near your window, and the total privacy which percludes the use of drapes. But soon, the Peard family will be surrounded by neighbors. Sidewalks will be put in. streets paved and street lights will brighten their now prairie neighborhood. Jack and Thurza Peard, their daughter, Donna, and Cheri, the family poodle, are looking forward to that day. As the first family to inhabit the west side development in Lethbridge, they stand out in the minds of their friends and members of the community. "Most of our friends thought we were nuts for building out here at first." says Mr. Peard. "But after visiting us in our new home, they quickly change their minds." The Peards at first expected to be lone settlers on the west side, but even now other homes are going up as quickly as the weather will allow. Seven neighbors to date are constructing residences. The decision to move to the newest section of the city wasn't difficult to make, says Mrs. Peard, who now relishes the relaxing drive home from her job. "I couldn't stand to go through all that five o'clock traffic, especially down Mayor Magrath, any longer." All members of the family must drive into town, including 17-year-old Donna who attends high school and hitches a ride with her father. At their former residence in the Lakewood area, the daily drive was miles. Now it is closer to 9 or 10 miles, although with the completion of the 6th Ave. bridge over the Oldman River, the drive will again be "back to normal" says Mr. Peard. "In fact, if we weren't sure there was going to be a bridge, that would have adversely affected our idea of moving to the west he says. He says the family is glad to be situated where they are, and are finding that their daughter's friends really "like to come for visits too." Prior to moving into the area, the Peards' expected to be lacking some of the usual services such as garbage First residents on the west side share their neighborhood with almost-complete houses and little else. pickup, phone hook-ups and milk and paper deliveries. But they say these were provided promptly with the exception of the last two. Mr. Peard says he and his daughter have solved the problem by settling on a routine before leaving Lethbridge for the west side, and all works well "until one of us forgets the milk." Waiting a few more months before their first neighbor moves in doesn't bother the family, considering there is a stream of cars" in the area on Sundays. What isn't all that pleasant is the noticeable increase in wind velocity and the somewhat dismal outlook when it snows. "But our patio, carport and all the entrances are sheltered from the winds, and once other houses are up there will be a says Mr. Peard. Life on the west side is far from dull, the family says, with deer often sighted in the field, jack rabbits nearby and the outlook for the future is rosy. "In a few years, this is going to be a beautiful section of says Mr. Peard. "The drive past the campus will be very nice, the proposed lake here will be an added attraction. Photos by Rick Ervin Mr Peard and Donna leave for school and work for 10-mile drive to city. Mrs. Peard relaxes before trip to town, enjoying the spacious view. LOYAL ORDER OF MOOSE 1234-3rd Ave. N.

The idea behind this single- handed venture is that you pay what you can afford. If you are on strike, unemployed or a pensioner, then the meal is free. With a wary eye on a dozen chunky steaks. Lavezzi straddles the coal-fired, grill like a giant octopus and ex- plains: "A managing director certainly pays more than a car factory worker. I myself only clear about 20 francs a day." J "I do this because I admire Lenin and Karl Marx. But as I am a Corscian I have named my bistro after the great Sampiero Corse, the Che Guevara of the war of in- dependence against the Gen- oese" Since he opened the restau- rant in 1970 Lavezzi has served nearly free meals to those he considers in need. About 200 people a day eat there and about 20, mostly old-age pensioners, get their meals for nothing. For him the point is "to put my ideas into practice and show that the socialist state can work." Lavezzi greets every cus- tomer with a warm hand- shake and gives them the menu, which bears the cau- tion. "We beg you to respect SHftCSALC Ladies' Shoes Easy care vinyl uppers.

CHMKBUMSTERCHMK Women's work team strikes a blow against old customs PEKING (Reuter) A team of women working at China's model farm production brigade have struck a blowJor frugality and against old customs in the campaign of criticism of Lin Piao and Confucius. When they marry all they need is "a "bamboo pole and two baskets, plus a complete set of the works of Mao Tse- tung." they say in the ideological journal. Red Flag. They say they set an example in marrying late, no longer give or receive wedding gifts, and on festival days their families "recall the miserable life of the past and think of the good life of the present." The girls attack Lin Piao. the late defence minister whose alleged crimes include male chauvinism, for trying to "place the Confucian ropes once again around our necks lo throw us back to the hell of (he old society." They compare the equal rights they enjoy today with the status of women in pre- Communist China, summed up in the local saying: "Hit wife I've married and the horse I've bought are for me to beat and ride."

We call on you to show self-dis- cipline." The customers huddle at closely bunched tables. On an average day a construction worker, an engineer, a giggl- ing secretary and a bearded architect rub shoulders on the same bench. Proudly studying his clien- tele. Lavezzi, a short man with greasy black hair and tattooed arms, says "our aim is to break down the ice of indifference that separates people from each other." He prepares the meals in a low-ceilinged room with wooden beams and walls plas- tered with posters of Lenin, Guevara and a host of Rus- sian peasants thrusting their sickles forward to the "great tomorrow." While the customers eat their steaks they are treated through loudspeakers to an of- ten deafening recording of the Red Army Choir, followed by Paul Robeson singing Old Man River. When their meal is finished the customers walk to the door and open the drawer of the till. Depending on how much they can afford, they put in their contribution and take out their change if neces- sary. "When we have money we distribute it." Lavezzi said. "For instance we gave three tons of coal to old people." He reports no pilfering of the till but does confess that rjl; is nil entirely rosy In his s <-j.-ii the work- of Paris.

Lavezzi confessed that "there are still some people who use us. the false hippies for in- stance." Sniffing the air suspiciously lor any smoke that smells stronger than a French ciga- rette, he commented sadly: "Manv hippies hide behind their fdedogy to sling us for a free meal." Earlobe piercing can result in hepatitis CHICAGO (AP) Earlobe piercing with improperly sterilized instruments can result in hepatitis, a study in Seattle, Wash., has found. The March 11 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that seven cases of the Irver disease were associated with earlobe piercing in one year in King County, Wash. The investigation was begun in 1973 after the mother of a girl who had her earlobes pierced in a jewelry store complained to public health officials that the jeweller used soiled instruments. The authors recommended that earlobe piercing in- struments be sterilized in an autoclave, an oven-like device which destroys germs with extremely high temperatures, or by boiling for 20 minutes.
