Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 WE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Thursday, Moy 1, 1970 Ideas On Values Need Changing, Says NCJW Head TORONTO (CP) Middle- class volunteers have much to learn and unlearn about values and attitudes, says Mrs. Victor Drache of Vancouver. Mrs. Drache is president of the National Council of Jewish Women. She opened their three- day annual board of directors meeting Monday by saying vol- unteers can be agents for change, but this is a time of flux for the council and society. "As middle class women we have a great deal to un- learn about the value system of the poverty sector and much o learn about our own middle- clasr -aluc system, attitudes i.-aetices." Mif. Drache criticized social institutions, by their .iiiMCture are slow to meet changing needs, f see very itlle effort on the part of of- 'ical organizations to give sup- port to the individual citizen's ibility to recognize problems, o understand issues and to contribute generally to deci- sion making and policy setting." The Canadian group will be lost in Toronto in 1972 to the international council.

Phone 3280212 Day Care Centre Plans Finalized By CHRISTINE PTJHL Herald Staff Writer The Lethbridge Day Care Centre is waiting a final esti- mate on renovations by Ken- wood Engineering before actual construction begins in the base- ment of Southmlnster United Church. Officials of the centre said they hope construction will be completed with approval from both city and provincial build- ing, health, electrical, boiler and Ere inspectors in time to start a program in September. Capital cost of the centre is budgeted for an estimated 000 this year> and an operational deficit of The program will be subsidized 80 per cent by the provincial Preventive So- cial Service and 20 per cent by the city. During its discussion of the 1970 budget in March, city coun- cil agreed to pay its share of the cost provided the centre ob- tained approval from the pro- vincial government. A letter of endorsement was received from the provincial government by officials of the day care centre two weeks ago. The day care committee is in the process of completing five year lease for the facft ities which will be renewable annually automatically, after the first' five years- have elapsed. Relations between Southmin- ster Church and the centre is strictly on a landlord tenant basis. The basement area will be used exclusively by the day care centre and will have pri- vate entrances. No Sunday school, clubs, teas or bazaars may use the facilities. Esti- mated rent is per year. Planned renovations include a kitchen in the basement, sepa- rate rest areas for boys and girls, playroom and classrooms, toilet facilities and a fenced-in playground to be built in a sec- tion of the parking lot, north of the building. The day care centre is not a babysitting service for the gen- eral public, said a member of the committee, but is designed for use by one parent fam- ilies and working mothers. Par- ents working part time will also be given consideration. A regular 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. schedule, six days a week, will include a pre-school program; The board unanimously agreed that the purpose of the day care centre is to supple- ment existing nursery opera- tions in the city. Service will be provided for parents who cannot afford regular nurseries. Fees will be charged on a sliding scale. "Highest fees will be comparable with existing day care said Dr. Barbara Lacey, first vice-chair- man of the committee The committee plans to use the provincial government bud- get sheet to estimate client charges, until a regular fee schedule has been set up. The provincial govern m e n t requires a fee schedule be im- plemented. William Kergan, Lethbridge director of the provincial Pre- ventive Social Services, report- ed that sample fee schedules have arrived and would he studied by the committee be- fore any decision on the type to be used would be made. One sample reveals 'hat a family in the to in- come per month range, with one child, would be expected to nav w tier day for the care of a child in the centre. Everyone will pay at least a nominal charge, even if it's as low as per month. Age group, initially, will be limi-te d to children between three and five years. As the program expands, officials plan to lower the minimum age. Another possibility is a pro- gram designed to give children who normally return to an emp- 'ty house after school, a place to go until parents get off work The centre will own all its equipment such as kitchen ap- pliances and supplies, r e s i cots, tables and chairs, p 1 a y- ground equipment and educa- tional tools. i The centre's pre school pro- gram will continue throughou the morning and afternoon, f, rest period and play periods, in- cluding time in the outdoor play ground, will supplement the ac tivities. The initial goal is 50 children and if more apply, mothers wil be interviewed to select those with the greatest need of the centre. A fuU time director with special training in pre-school education, a cook and one or two other aides will be hired at the outset. The number of per- sonnel will increase as required. There are 17 members on the day care centre board which is made up of interested volun- teers. Mrs. E. J. Kipp is chair- man; Dr. Barbara Lacey, first vice chairman; Patrick Bow- man, second vice chairman; Mrs. W. P. Gregory, secretary and Rita Cemulini, treasurer. Compare Stove Prices Before Buying., Says CAC OTTAWA (CP) -A wise consumer will compare prices before buying a stove, the Consumers Association o f Canada says. In a recent article in its magazine, Canadian Con- sumer, it says "the price of stoves can vary from store to store as well as from brand to brand." "In fact, with the number of brands on the market, the price can vary from 5150 to as high as Electric stoves ure about eight per cent lower in price than natural gas or propane, the association says. The least expensive way of paying for a stove, naturally, is to pay cash. But it you plan to buy on credit, check the costs of bor- rowing the dollars and cents and in per cent from such sources as banks, credit unions and finance companies. Then compare these rates with the ones charged by the store. If the stove is to be installed in a new home, there may be THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes here's a new, young commentator I'm going tq .He just- sneezed and blew his notes all over the room." -family W.A. of the lethbridge Auxiliary Hospital RAFFLE WINNER MRS.

Usually gas installation charges are not included in the stove's price. CHECK HUNN1NG COoTS Making a decision on whether 10 buy an electric, a natural gas or a propane gas stove can be ticklish, the asso- ciation says. Rates onered by utilities and propane dealers vary widely according to distance from the suppiy point, but more significantly, according to the individual's 'total pur- chases of the energy involved. The association recom- mends that consumers get cost factors according to the votume of energy used and work cuf operating cosis lor themselves rathei' than rely- ing on salesmen "who will in- variably claim their product is the cneapest to operate." In buying a stove, notice whether the knobs are easy to clean and handle. The ele- ments, porcelain drip bowls and the chrome rings should conveniently be removable for easy cleaning. "For safety, particularly if there are young children around, switches should be on the backsplash or on the side rather than on the front." Study estimates show that on the average a stove will last about 16 years. Money should be budgeted in case it has to be replaced at the end of this time. The association also says it is advisable to purchase only stoves that have the approval label of either the Canadian Standards Association or the Canadian Gas Association. The guarantee should be checked to find cut whether it actually covers the entire product or only parts, how long it is in force, who pays for the labor charges and whether it covers delivery and installation. Before having an appliance repaired, get a quotation to determine whether repairing it is worth while. Also check to see if the manufacturer of the stove has its own service outlet in your city. j HE'S HAPPY BENONI, South Africa (AP) The telephone systems in South Africa are .'ess than per- fect, which gives point to the reply of a local man who was asked why he looked so happy: "I have a wife and a tele- the man said.
