Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THI lITHimOOI HERALD - Monday, March 13, 1971 \ BON VOYAGE - At a bon voyage parly for Miss, Molly Coupland, centre, Charlie Parry chuckles over* reminiscences about years past on the telephone switchboard at the Auxiliary Hospital with Miss Coupland. The occasion was in appreciation of Miss Coupland's years of service for the community and in honor of her attend- ing the Associated Country Women of the World conference as a delegate in Norway this summer. At left is Mrs. Harry Patching, of McNally, one of the organizers of the get-together. Miss Coupland was presented with a number of gifts including a rose presentation. More than just babysitting service Choose nursery school carefully By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) - Ideally, a nursery school should be a lot more than a place to keep a child away from the house for a few hours. It should be chosen carefully. It should offer a child the materials and encouragement to stimulate his imagination and satisfy his urge to explore and discover. The day nurseries branch of the Ontario department of social and family services has some tips for parents who are choosing a nursery. What the tips add up to is: Don't be slow to ask questions or to visit the nursery. A well- run nursery should welcome your interest. Find out first if the nursery meets the standards set by your community or province, if it is licensed where a licence is required. Does it meet safety and health standards? Have the staff and other children had medical checkups? , There should be at least one adult to every eight or 10 children in the nursery, depending on the age of the children. At least two adults should be in the building, even for a small group of children. If the school is large, it should be divided by age groups so that a child returning for a second year can "graduate" to an older group and more-advanced experiences. When you visit the school, watch the staff. Is there a good feeling between adult and child? Do the adults appear to understand the children and accept them as they are? At least the supervisor of the school should have training in child care and be able to help the children by guiding rather than correcting them. Look at the equipment at the school. There should be a variety of attractive toys in good condition - toys that can be used in a number of ways. A housekeeping centre where children can play out family living and experiences they know should have plenty of space and adequate equipment.

In a ceremony at the French embassy here, ambassador Pierre Siraud invested her as a chevalier, the initial degree in the five-degree order. Recipients must have done at least 20 years of public service or 25 of professional work, and have made contributions of outstanding merit. . Miss Arnold was born in Ma-coun, Sask., and grew up in the west. In 1932, as a reporter for the Regina Leader-Post, she was sent to Quebec for a few days. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "I'd like to us* that mirror -hew soon will you be throuah telling your boss off?" Impressed by the kindness shown by French - Canadians, and unable to speak French, she realized there was a dimension to Canadian life she did not understand. She began to look on France as the source of this "second dimension" and boarded a freighter at Churchill, Man., to go there and steep herself in French language and culture. For four years in Paris, she did reporting for Prairie newspapers and. then The Canadian Press news agency, fleeing to England when the Germans entered the city in June, 1940. A year later she helped set up a Free French information service in Canada at the request of the French National Committee for Liberation, which operated from London, England. After the war the service was replaced by a French embassy information division. Miss Arnold took charge of the new division's English service, where she has since worked.
