Graduations Set NATAL (HNS) Secondary schools of Spanvood and Fernie have completed plans for their respective graduation night ceremonies, to be held May 8 in Spanvood and May 9 in Per- nie. er's Day." The complete essay follows; Why I Think There Should Be A Mother's Day How true the old saying: A man must work from sun to sun, but a woman's work is never done." When I think of all the household chores my mother does I actually feel sorry for including her! She gets up early in the morning and goes about mak- ing the beds, washing dishes, washing and ironing clothes, sweeping and scrubbing the floors and that is only the beginning of her regular round of duties. What seems worst of all, is she does all that work and is she ever paid? Then mothers are kind, con- siderate and devote them- selves to helping their chil- dren in problems, and dis- tress even after the day's work. They teach their chil- dren to become good Chris- tians and respectable citizens. Even when grown a cliild al- looks at his mother with affection. Have you ever no- ticed that when hurt a child will run to its mother and not its father. The mother in re- turn comforts the child. You'd think with so many re- sponsibilities a mother would never have any time for rest and pleasure but even when busy she will take time for her children. These are only a few reasons why we should give the mothers of the world a day off the job! Richards R. I. Baker, Box 238, Coaldale.

Solurday, May 9, 1970 THE LETHBRID6E HCKAIB 3 Garden Produce Wanted COALDALE (HNS) Frank Wiens, administrator of the Coaldale Community Hospital, spoke briefly on changes from information obtained from J. D. Campbell, deputy minister of health. Hospitals will almost be verting to the old system, said Mr. Wiens. Hospitals were pri- vate enterprises. This means hospital earnings, revenues, donations and bequests stay with the hospital. Tlwy are not classed as income as has been government policy since 1958. In view of the foreseen cut- back of funds from the govern- ment for the hospital, Mr. Wiens stated the hospital will accept donations of garden pro- duce. The kitchen staff will pre- serve and store it. Cloth material will also be needed as well as volunteer work in order to maintain a jalanced budget at the hospital.
