Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD ~ Friday, March 16, 1973 Science projects use imagination NORTH VANCOUVER (CP) - When North Star elementary 6chool teacher Gary Doi whispers PSST, his Grade 7 students eit up and take notice. PSST stands for problem-solving science time, a teaching technique developed by Mr. Doi and Alan McCormack of the University of British' Columbia science education department. Mr. Doi says the idea is to promote learning by confronting the class with problems requiring use of imagination. His students' latest project was Operation Eggdrop, which started when Mr. Doi asked the class whether eggs would always crack when dropped on a hard surface. Three were dropped to the ground from a second-storey window. Two broke, but one bounced and was undamaged. Mr. Doi then asked his students to devise some way of dropping eggs unbroken from a height of 30 feet. He stipulated that all materials used must be inexpensive, the eggs would have to free-fall in whatever contraption the students came up with and they would have to survive the impact without damage. DROPPED TWO FLOORS Six weeks later, Operation Eggdrop was conducted from a second-floor window. The soft-landing devices were all imaginative, well-built, and in almost every case, got the eggs to the ground unscrambled. Ross Tennant, 12, and Richard Parr, 13, tolled for weeks over a balsa-and-paper glider with a three-egg cockpit lined with foam rubber. The glider didn't exactly glide, but it fluttered to the ground with its cargo unscathed. Then two 12-year-olds, Janice O'Brien and Carolyn Brat-kowski, built a miniature balsa-wood packing case, packed their eggs in foam rubber, and attached a parachute. They put old hair curlers on the bottom Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX) OPTICAt PRESCRIPTION CO. for shock absorbers. And it worked. Margie Shaughuessy and Caroline Millliouse, both 12, also built a balsa box. But they packed their eggs with miniature marshmallows and glued larger marshmallows to the outside of the box to absorb impact. Although classmates ate some of the device, the girls' model lowered the eggs-via parachute-undamaged. Another contraption consisted of a plastic garbage bag which contained inflated balloons and a plastic bag filled with gelatin on which eggs floated. It worked too. Mr. Doi said the project turned his classroom into a workshop-cum-think tank, with the children swapping ideas and studying such things as air pressure, gravity, velocity and height and distance. Bedside bias EDMONTON (CP) - Psychiatric patients in general hospital wards and long-term care institutions are suffering from bias at the bedside, an Alberta A s s o c i a tion of Registered Nurses committee on mental health says. The committee's report, published in the AARN's March newsletter, says "there would appear to be a great need for the general membership of the AARN to examine beliefs and feelings about mental illness." "It is not uncommon to find nurses who still cling to the notion that mental illness is somehow connected to the 'sin model' and that patients labelled or diagnosed as being psychiatric cases should somehow be feared or avoided." Part of the problem, the report says, is that nurses have insufficient experience in the settings where they now encounter these situations. "The taboo against mental illness Is there whether we like it or not," said Elaine Coombs, committee chairman. "The committee, over the last three years, has attempted to provide support to the practising nurse in the area of mental health nursing," she said. Don't Leave if to George!

Olden-day witches were hams VICTORIA (CP) - Happiness for Jean Kozocari is stirring up a witches brew in the big iron cauldron that appears to overshadow the fireplace in her Victoria home. "Witchcraft, is my religion- the overwhelming force in my life," says the warm, motherly-looking woman whose appearance is disconcertingly at odds with the popular conception of a witch as a withered old hag. But then Jean Kozocari is a nice, friendly witch who would never think of turning a bothersome neighbor to a frog. She said the coven-or group -of witches she heads is composed of middle-aged members who use their sorcery to benefit others. "We work in healing and counselling and work with disturbed and unhappy people and try to do good around the community." A native of Toronto, she took over the coven 10 years ago after moving to Victoria Irom the Muskoka district of Ontario She almost missed becoming a witch. "My family has been witches for generations but the right to be a witch is handed down from father to daughter and mother to son. I was the wrong sex in the wrong generation." She showed such aptitude for sorcery as a youngster that her grandfather flouted tradition by training her for tho magic art. USED TO BE HAMS Mrs. Kozocari said witchcraft is much simpler and straightforward than most people imagine and that many misconceptions derive from the fact "witches were hams in the olden days, playing it to the hilt with bones, old moss, black cats." WeeWhimsy Eric Seyffer n cf Ivts tht original art for hit Wea Whlrniy. Senrj'youn to this paper. "Witchcraft means being aware of the forces of your mind and of nature, and using them to work for you rather than against you. It seems silly to use only half the world when one can use it all. People should use the herbs and shrubs around us, and use their ESP, which everybody has. It's just a question of letting go and finding it." She said witches worship nature, not Satan. "We meet, perform rituals and have sacrifices like any other religion. There are no live sacrifices. Candles and incense are both forms of sacrifice, as are food and flowers.*' Even the cauldron, which plays an integral part in many rituals and ceremonies, is put to ordinary use at times. "My cauldron is a little rusty just now. We had a party last week and had it filled full of beer and ice cubes."

Jean Newton says there are plenty of part-time jobs around, many with hours that will fit readily into a family schedule. It's the way she started again, after 10 years, and now she is a personnel officer with Canada Permanent Trust. She said a woman who is interested in returning to work should do several things before she actually applies for a job. "Hoki a summit meeting with your family about what changes there would be in the home." You might need sitters. You might want to make changes in family responsibilities. It might be as simple as a shift in dinner hours. It pays to advertise FORT "WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Micki Topper says she has chosen her "classified ad" fiance. Since placing an inconspicuous advertisement in the classified section of a Fort Wayne weekly paper last week, saying "German girl must get married or be deported," Miss Topper has been flooded with telegrams, letters, and personal visits. But the first suitor, Eric Elam, 2C, of nearby Runt-ertown is the apparent winner. "I told Eric okay because he was the first to call. So many other nice fellows have contacted me, but Eric was there when I needed someone." She came to the United States on a tourist visa in September to find an American serviceman she met in West Berlin, but when she got to the young man's home in Cleveland he was apparently no longer interested. So she moved to Fort Wayne with some friends. When U.S. immigration department officials said she couldn't remain in this country any longer as a tourist, she opted for matrimony. Before making her decision for Elam Monday, Miss Topper estimated she had been phoned by over 300 anxious bachelors. She had received nearly 50 letters and several telegrams. You should also decide why you want to go back to work. A potential employer will ask you, and you should be clear about your reasons for taxing so important a step. Mrs. Newton says she accepts it when a woman says she is bored at home, but some employers consider that if she is bored at home she may be bored on the job. MAY NEED TRAINING She said the usual reason is money. "If the reason is a career, you arc talking about something nebulous unless the applicant has a speciality. There will be courses to take, responsibility. AH this is going to dig into time spent with the family. "Making a list of your sy-sets and limitations can help sort that out." Once you've done all that, you may want to take a refresher course or try to find a job that trains you. "There are two types of part-time jobs. We hire tellers on permanent part-time staff, and we'll train them. They can go on to a full-time job if they wish. "The other route is through the temporary agencies. Some of them have their own refresher courses. People working for them can almost call their own shots on the time they can work." SEEK OLDER WOMEN Mrs. Newton says she thinks women who have been out of the working world for a while feel shy about looking for a job and she doesn't think they should. "A lot of department managers tell me they want to hire older women they can rely on. The life style has changed, and girls move around. There doesn't seem to be the concern about the future that there used to be. "And there is a shortage ol good, employable people in the market. "One thing that's not done very much by women is submitting resumes to companies. I suggest they investigate companies going into new plazas and send resumes to them, especially if a Job there would mean you could walk to" work. "Figure out when you can work and what your skills are,, and flood the market with a resume. "Don't-let age worry you. Employers are anxious to hire a woman returning to work. A mature woman is often mora adept at handling people, and more dependable. She has re* turned with a goal, and, therefore, has a purpose in work* ing."
