Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, May 11, 1973 Summer program plans underway After several successful years with the city summer program, the department will again fea- ture similar sessions during the coming summer months. Program planning is well under way, according to Dick Mells, superintendent of'culture and recreation, and staff will be chosen next week. The sessions, which begin June 18 and go through to Au- gust 11, will include a day camp at Henderson Lake and several playground fun clubs. They will all be run under the sponsorship of the YWCA and the city recreation depart- ment. "Program locations for the, playground sections will be at Norbridge, Rideau Court, Kins- men, Gyro. Lions Centennial Park. Lakeview, Kiwanis Green Acres and at Stafford Ville1' he said. Fun clubs will be run in the mornings by YW staff members and are geared to the six to eight-year-olds, while the play- ground programs are for the) older children, up to 12 or 13. j "There will be numerous ac- tivities said Mr. Mells. "with crafts, games, sports days, and special event days happening on Fridays." As last year, there will be a canoeing section offered with the course which is to take place at Henderson Lake. "We have plans for a music and drama group to travel from playground to play- he added, "present- ing puppetry and other produc- tions." "The program itself is meant to be as informal as possible, with actual registration of the children limited to the weekly day camps." Among the activities plann- ed, are two camp-outs which will take place at Beaver Mines for a period of three days each. Many of the programs are being run in conjunction with Opportunities for Youth proj- ects and Student Temporary Employment Program. A new project of the city rec- reation department this year is the summer figure skating school and hockey school. Mr. Mells added that the pro- grams look very promising, and that to date, the hockey school is almost half-full with registrations. Traditional Hie GOGAMA, Ont.

All-male offspring proposed to solve population problem By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) A micro- biologist from the University of Sussex is likely to draw a hot blast from women's liber- ation groups after unveiling his unique approach to con- trolling population growth. The main cause of over-pop- ulation as seen by Prof. John Postgate is: "Women. If we had a lot less of them, we'd have no problem." But Postgate isn't one to leave conclusions unsup- ported. In the current issue of the magazine New Scientist he defends his belief at length. A pill could be developed, he says, which "taken at calendar Iff of local happening eaitus, would ensure that the offspring would be male." "Imagine what would hap- pen if a man-child pill be- came freely available through the World Health Organ- ization. Even in developed countries there is a surprising prejudice among ordinary people in favor of having male children. "Among most African, Asian. Central and_ South American peoples this prej- udice amounts almost to an obsession." WOULD HAVE OPTION If the world population of women declined drastically over the coming years, Post- gate contends, people would become sufficiently wise to "choose ths option of breed- ing females for the benefit of posterity." But what about the social consequences of such a change? The answer to that, he says, is a little more diffi- cult. "The social effects would indeed be dramatic but they would not, I suggest, be as disgusting and degrading as the escalating starvation, war, disease and psychosis which seem to be the alterna- tive. "Women's right to work, even to travel alone freely, would probably be forgotten transiently. Polyandry (many husbands per woman; might well become accepted in societies. "Some societies might treat their women as queen ants, others as rewards for the most outstanding males. Mas- culine homosexuality would almost certainly bscome ac- cepted. Substitutes for normal sex. mechanical and pictorial, would be widely used." When the worst was over, adds Postgate, humanity would have achieved a stabil- ity enabling it to realize its full potential and control its own destiny.

Therapy for wives proposed by army HONOLULU (AP) Two re- searchers say a study of emo- tional stress among "waiting wives" of American troops who served in Vietnam suggests need for a national "combat psychiatry" program to help left-at-home wives. The proposed program would be patterned after group- therapy, preventive-psychiatry programs originally developed for men in combat zones. It would be designed to pre- vent major psychiatric trouble among military and civilian women and during prolonged or frequent duty-absences of their spouses. Reporting to the 126th annual meeting of the American Psy- chiatric Association (APA) Wednesday, the researchers said their proposal springs from the first study ever made of waiting military wives who en- dured considerable emotional stress "but did not seek psy- chiatric assistance.' The investigators said such women were found 10 be "high- risk'' for serious trouble. The researchers were Dr. Douglas Bey, a practising psy- chiatrist and former Army psy- chiatrist, and Jean Lange. an editor for the Menninger Psy- chiatric Foundation and herself a onetime "waiting wife." They said interviews with 40 waiting wives showed that the women "experienced many ex- treme demands and frustrations during their husbands' ab- sences, but do not have avail- able the support available to their husbands in the combat area."
