Government gives support for senior citizen studies By MARLENE COOKSIIAW Herald Slaff Writer The department of health ami social development gave ils full support Thursday night to proposals put forward by the Alberta Council on Aging to set up studies on the senior citizen situation. Clu'ef deputy minister Bruce Rawson, speaking at the sixth annual convention and aging seminal- sponsored by Ihe ACA at the University of Lelhbridgc, said that Health Minister Neil Crawford hatl expressed infer, cst in the project's develop- ment. He said Mr. Crawford de- sired to h a v e the government take an informed position on the situation o[ senior citizens in Alberta. Mr. Rawson felt that the gov- ernment commitment to more e f f e c five programming had been well-begun, with the at- Centre for retarded open Saturday The official opening of the residence for adult retardates will take place Saturday at 1 p.m. at Sunrise Ranch, one- half mile norht of Coaldale. The ceremony has been plan- ned in conjunction with tho observance of the National Week for tbe Menially Retard- ed lo be held May ]4 to 20. An open bouse of ntli Ilir. residence and the greenhouse will follow, and the public is in- vited to attend. The new residence is the lliird of ils type to be built under the auspices of the Lelh- bridge Association for the Men- tally retarded. It will accom- modate 14 trainees engaged at the greenhouse, plus two super- tention paid to community ser- vices- pre-rcfirement education and sufficient income mainte- nance. "The dollar-for-dollar concepl has Little value to senior cit- izens unless the services Ihey require are he said. Mr. Hawson felt Ural tho housing for senior citizens was moving away from the tradi- tional lodging and isolated unit concepts towards attachment to other community resources. He said that older citizens should be recognized as major contributors to society, in tho sense that they are the carriers of tradition and culture in this technical age. He also stressed the impor- tance be felt was deserved by Hie self-help concept in the se- nior citizen siluation. "Senior citizens need to feel they are retiring to something, rather than from he said. "Such preventive con- cepts need lo be built into our present system." Senior citizens should volunteer A recommendation was pro- posed Thursday that the Alber- ta Council on Aging be urged to organize a planned effort to involve senior citizens in volun- teer programs. The proposal was made at a workshop discussing senior cit- izens as volunteers, part ot tbe two-day Fun-damentals of Ag- ing Seminar which began Thursday at the University o[ Lclhbridge. i Approximately ]00 p e o pie from throughout the province, most either with a professional interest in senior citizens or se- nior cilizens themselves, are at- tending the seminar sponsored by the Alberta Council on Aging. "There is a very definite need for planning in senior cit- izens' volunteer w o r said chairman Doug Walker, co-or- dinator of volunteers for the Calgary public school board. "A training program of some kind is necessary in a lot of cases, and il would help to strengthen Ihe volunteers' inter- est and be said.

It was felt that If a specific job was offered, wilh definite qualifications and responsibili- ties, the response would be dra- matically increased. "Requests for help arc generally much too vague to evoke any re- sponse right now "If the jobs are going to be of a specific nature, there needs to be a variety of opportunities to present to senior said Mr. AValker. "They must be shown that there are many types of jobs available, some of which they are sure to be especially inter- ested in or qualified for." He mentiontd long-term care centres as one type of institu- lion where physical needs only were looked by tbe staff, and volunteer care was re- quired lo supplement patients' other needs. "Workers are required to cre- ate for them the kind of mean- ingful situations that make the difference between being alive and being he said. "Patients, particularly psy- chiatric patients, relate much better on a person to-person ba- sis wilh volunteers than staff, because they know the volun- teer really wants to help." "II is just not economically possible to do the type of qual- ity work desirable in many in- stitutions without active volun- teer be said.

Mr. B a 1) k i was unsuccess- ful in an allempt to have charges against Andrews drop- ped for lack of evidence against him. The defense case was consisting of only witness- es. The first witness called was a young Lethhridge man who had been wilh the five persons charged until just before the alleged incidents had taken place. He told the court, he had met the five men and some other persons at a local bar earlier in (he evening and had gone ahead to the El Rancho Out fiicler beer parlor to save a ta- ble for the rest of the group. "We had some beer and then made a spontaneous decision lo po to the cabaret we all made the decision at the same he told the court. He said as the. group of men allcmpfed lo go down a flighl of stairs al flic cabaret, they were stopped. "I went dmvn the stairs and no one stopped me, but T look- ed up Ihe stairs and seen all Iho rest of the guys had been stop- pod. "The next thing T saw was Michael Swallow soil of run- ning, falling and stumbling down the he (old the court. At the bottom of (he stairs a lot of people were reported to have grabbed Swallow and dragged him into the eabarel, where I wo bouncers allegedly slarled lo hit and kick him.

"Hober finally got out and yelled for the doors lo closed T just stood outside the cabaret doors and notched and then the police he said. For the final defense witness Mr. Babki called Carl Olson- one of the accused men. Olsen disputed evidence pre- sented earlier in tbe trial by Mr. Hobcr. "When we tried to into the cabaret.and Mr. Hober grabbed me by Ihe coat and said we were not going lo get in 1 thought it was a Mr. Olson told the court. "1 really couldn't see why T couldn't go in.
