Tacked up on the bulletin ward are clip sheets from newspapers, mainly of govern- ment advertisements, swim- ming hours and medicare infor- mation. User and pihacr-uppsr of this material is May Thurston, su- pervisor of AID Advice, In- ormation and Direction, Leth- Mdge's fledgling volunteer re- ferral agency. Tucked away in the second floor of Southminster Church, he centre will next month face .ts first self-evaluation after 12 months tf existence. It came into being in July, 1969 as a volunteer service for persons who wanted infor- mation on welfare, health, rec- reation, culture but weren't sure where to get it. The agency's office and tele- phone (billed at a month) are paid for by the church, but toe are no denominational ties to the work. Aside from the office, desk and telephone the other components of the service are Mrs. Thurston, and two helpers Margaret Malmberg and Mrs. J. G. Doyle who work two afternoons a week. Mrs. Thurston mans the phone 10 a.m.-4p.m. weekdays, except for her off-afternoons. During the first nine months of AID, 600 persons used the agency, the bulk of them (484) through .telephone calls rather than letters or interviews. The largest requests were for directional i n f o r m at ion (81) welfare assistance data housing accommodation (57) and child care And some of the queries are as hard to classify as they are to Mrs. Thurslon said she was asked where one could ac- quire "black lights" (used in stage lighting or displays) and 'I. didn't have a clue." Close to orie-tMrd of the calls save come from men, which fcs. Thurston found surpris- ing. "I thought we'd get all our She said new Indians used the agency in the past, but with the advent of the Native Friendship Centre in Leth- bridge, a tie-in has been estab- lished with the Friendship Cen- tre's director Hose Yellow Feet. Started as an outgrowth of a Women's Interiaith Committee aaid backed by a board of six men and women, AID is mov- ing into the area of social ac- tion. The agency presented city council with a petition of 248 names for a low-rental hausing unit. Volunteers for the Candy- Stripers' program in fc; Vitals were arranged through AID'S contacts as were summer jobs for g i r 1 s for Operation Place- ment. Mrs. Thurston said she has "learned an awful lot since AID notably of the "tremen- dous amount of work done by Letbbridge service clubs." She has also learned about the greatest areas of need in the city. From her contacts with callers she suggested the city requires: a hostel for trans- lent men, transient youth cen- tre, day-care centres, homes where teen-agers can stay when their parents don't get along, halfway house for ex-convicts stay-in homemakers rlv persons for 200 Boxes Of Detergent Picked Up 319 8th St. S.

The campaign was organized y the two groups as a means of expressing disapproval of the distribution of free samples of the high phosphate deter- gent to Lethbridge homes. It was felt that this method of promotion forces the recip- ients into the role of polluters of the environment. All sample boxes collected will be returned to the dis- tributor. ...THAT SHOW YOUR LOVE MERLE NORMAN COSMETIC BOUTIQUE COLLEGE MALL 328-1525 "Free Gift Wrapping Serefce" CUP SAUCER ARRANGEMENT PRICED AT 5.00 BIG HUG BOUQUET for Mom Mumi, Carnations, and Rotes in G von. 10.00 .nd 12.50 ANNE PETRUNIA ARRANGEMENT OP MIXED FLOWERS end CHOICE GREENS 7.50 OPEN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY 'Till 9 p.m. Fine A Lethbridge man, William E.
