Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor JT MUST be a terrible feeling to know you have written a book which will not become a bestseller. One arrived on my desk this week in rather a forceful manner (like being thrown there). All I can say about it is that it's the most frightening experience I have encountered, since I discovered my first white hair during my first practice teaching episode some years back. . One reason it will never become a best seller is that it's about something no one wants to read about. Another is that booksellers would not dare to display the title of the book out in the open. It's just too shocking. The frightening part about the book is that once you get into the middle of it you tend to really believe it all. Believe that it's all happening. Believe that the author is actually talking about you. I had always considered the man who gave me the book to read, a charming acquaintance. My opinion has been duly altered. I can't imagine anyone wanting to read such a disgusting book. I wouldn't consider taking it home nor give it to my children to read. I wouldn't want it ever seen on my bookshelves. The title of the book will be enough to show you exactly what I mean. Be prepared now-it's How to Put On Weight. How about that! ? ? ? One of my favorite grocers asked this week why there was such a run on a particular kind of candy - round candy-covered chocolate. It was explained to him that a recipe was spreading (no pun) around the city called Smarty Cookies. It's an easy cooky and delicious, as a budding young cook at the Anderson household proved yesterday. The only downfall of the recipe is that the cook gets the idea he's a bit of a smarty himself. ? ? ? And while consumers are battling it out with the airwaves, women are making waves in the auto industry. Following the General Motors strike, women were allowed jobs on assembly lines for the first time in Canada. Instead of the expected disruption of work, an added benefit has been shown in a lack of absenteeism. As one worker put it, with 50 women on the assembly line with 11,000 men: A lot of guys look forward to coming to work now. and out of L Mr. and Mrs. George Mitchell have returned to the city after spending the winter in California.  *  The Lethbridge Garrison Association will hold a dinner RELIEVE TEETHING PAINS 0UICKU-EASILY jvsr it� tAws gums wim WILDER S Teething Lotion own dance Saturday at 7 o'clock In Erickson's.

The 15 women represent two soutfiern Alberta Indian reserves. 12-week program begins in April Health courses set for Blood reserve By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer STANDOFF - First aid, prenatal care and nutrition will be the focus of the first of several planned courses for housewives on the Blood Indian Reserve by the new program instituted by the department of social development. Marvin Fox, director o'f the reserve social development program, said the nurse counsellor ' and two home visitors are working in conjunction on 12-week course to start in April. It will be given in three areas on the reserve, Cardston, Glenwood and Standoff, and will entail one three - hour instructional session each week, with inform a t i v e pamphlets and reading materials supplied in advance to prepare the women for the course. The home visitors will not be directly involved with the instruction but will be responsible for building interest in the course, making sure the wives can get to the course site and supplying babysitting service. Rhonda King, a graduate of the St. Michael's School of Nursing, said the pre - natal course is aimed at the young women to give them general information to alleviate fears inherent in childbirth. "We will deal with the normal course of pregnancy, care of the child, feeding practices and immunization programs," she said. "This, along with stressing the importance of regular visits to the doctor will be reinforced by home visits once the mother and child leave the hospital. Miss King said the nutrition portion of the course will deal with food value, meal planning and budgeting.

The new chapter will loan patients self-help aids like wheel chairs �od visit homes and hospitals. The first aid aspect will deal with safety in the home, basic first aid practices and emergency care. "It will be very practical, relating directly to the home," she said. Miss King said the role of the nurse counsellor within the frame work of the. social development program is the education of the people along health lines and to look after the health of all employed families. She looks after emergencies at the Kainai Industries Ltd. plant and is the referral person for people with alcohol, marital, family court and probation problems. The two home visitors, Dor-een Rabbit and Florence Scout, assist each other in their work with the program. Mrs. Rabbit visits the wives of employed men to help and to offer advice on good housekeeping practices, safety in the home, aw* general duties of any housewife. She said they work to a large extent as a referral source for the wives in attending upgrading programs, giving informa- tion on courses and assisting with the filing of applications. "Within and without the social development program on the reserve, we try to give direction to all the people to find help from professional counsellors," she said. "In our visits we find problems with school truancy, alcohol, police, the law and probation. We deal closely with many agencies involved in these areas and work for better communication between the people and the agencies." Mrs. Scout takes a more practical role as a home visitor. She teaches knitting, crocheting and beadwork, and interests the women in joining homemaking classes like sewing, under the direction of a professional home economist from Pincher Creek. Miss King said the important point to stress to the people is the fact that the social development program was not established to tell the people what to do. "The. program is a service they can call on for assistance."

Some talking, some listening, and a program that works." 15 women attend Homemaker course By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Herald Staff Writer Home making and home management are the topics of a course held in the day-school on the Peigan Indian Reserve at Brocket, this week. The course, which was taught by Ame O'Sullivan and Sister May Haider, home development agents with the Edson office for the Human Resources Development authority, has 13 women, from the Peigan and two women from the Blood reserve registered. Classes Thursday afternoon were being taught by Bob Birch, and Ed Kost Santo of the department of social development, who were dealing with child welfare; child protection, apprehension, temporary wardship, permanent wardship, adoption, foster homes, and juvenile probation. Other topics which are studied in the classes are basic nutrition, child care, home management, and food management. As part of the course, the women were divided, and wont either to Pincher Creek or to Fort Macleod, and made food price-comparisons. "They had a lot of fun doing that," said Miss O'Sullivan. "They don't really know how to find a good food bargain." Members of government assistance departments participating in the course, are Mike Brennan, Canada Manpower, Paul Van Cleve, guardian counsellor with the Indian Affairs department, Hugh Reed, adult education, and Jerry Fisher, vocational counsellor, both with the Indian Affairs department, and Marinus Begieneman, district superintendent of social services in southern Alberta in the Indian Affairs department. "This is the first time anything like this has been attempted on an Indian reserve," says Mr. Begieneman. Following completion of the course, three of the women registered in the course will be lured by the Peigan band to work among other women on the reserve. Cost of salaries will be paid 20 per cent by the Peigan band, and 80 per cent by the Indian Affairs department. ' Mr. Begieneman stated that follow-up help will be received by the three women hired from Margaret Yellowhorn, administrator of the Peigan Welfare office in Brocket, Jan Frith, district home economist stationed in Pincher Creek, and himself.
