Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Tuesday, May 15, 1973 Younger generation boosts revival of fashionable hats By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer Topping that smashing outfit with just the right hat is now the big thing in most larger centres. Lethbridge. on the other hand, is fairly slow to catch on to the latest and greatest craze in fashion circles, according to Marie-Louise Loescher. Mrs. Loescher. owner of Marie-Louise Millinery, said it is the young girls who are bringing back a demand for the recently-outdated hat. "These girls are the ones who haven't worn hats at any time in their lives, and are now finding that hats make something look twice as good. "All ages are turning to she commented, "the young like floppy, wide-brimm- ed hats; the older like conven- tion hats and the in-between woman wants a good-looking wardrobe hat to complete her outfit." Mrs. Loescher said that hat fashions have made an amaz- ing comeback and are being all over the place they're very much in the fore- front of fashion as anyone can see simply by glancing in an YWCA The staff of the YWCA would like to extend their thanks to all who participated in and helped to make the recent bake sale the great success it was. The results were very good, and these brought the goodies also helped consider- ably. The cakes which were raffled were decorated by Mrs. Konynenbelt. As summer is rapidly ap- proaching, our spring programs are winding up and plans are already being made for the fall sessions. Again the YW would like to appeal to the citizens of the PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES 2 JACKPOTS LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. news city for their help as volun- teers.

We'd be glad to hear from you. s All 60 young girls, three mothers, group leaders, two supervisors and a bus driver, were returned safely to their families late Saturday night after a rather full weekend in Calgary. The girls, members of the Blue Triangles and Y Teen groups, toured many points of interest while in the city, and spent the night at St. Peter's Anglican Church. We would like to thank the mothers, leaders and bus driver for their help, patience and support in this venture. With- out you we couldn't have done it. EVERY WED. AT 2 P.M.

To pick the right hat, a wo- man should consider what pur- pose it will serve. If it is meant for a parti- cular part of her wardrobe, the color and style should be con- centrated on. One hat for many occasions should be neutral or perhaps in a two-color scheme which complements and ac- cents; or matches a special suit or coat. "Round features look best in a said Mrs. Losscher, "while oval features wear a turban to better advantage. "The breton sailor, the type that rolls up all the way around, may be worn by all ages from six to 90 and may be worn quite far back, levelled off, or forward and is attrac- tive with long features." Mrs. Loescher added that in general, -women are completely lacking in taste when it comes to buying a hat. "So many won't take the word and experiences of a per- son in the business, but will bring in a friend instead. "Practically every friend, un- less very truthful, sees on'-' what she would tike to be see in herself they inflic, their taste on another per- she said. Husbands, on the other hand, were lauded as "having splend- idly good taste, a natural sense of style and know better than the wives what looks good on them." She said she felt 90 per cent of the male population tikes to see a woman in a becoming hat. j In conclusion, she said that since the recent hat fashion re- vival, business has picked up from a sion slump. Family planning active in Alberta By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Family planning is a strict- ly personal matter, accord- ing to Dr. Robert Tocley. "The federal family planning program does not consciously aim at influencing the size of the he explained. "The objective is to ensure the knowledge and means of planning the desired number and the spacing of their chil- dren is available to all Cana- dians." Dr. Tooley, director of fam- ily planning for the Dept. of National Health and Welfare in Ottawa, and Norman Knight, principal program of- ficer, in town Monday to inspsct the Lethbridge Birth Control and Informa- tion Centre, which receives support from the department. "Alberta is one of the most active provinces in family said Dr. Tooley. "One of the reasons is, it is one of the few provinces which have made a public policy statement in support of family planning programs. "A second reason is the set- up at the provincial family planning co-ordinating com- mittee, which advises the minister of health and social development about the dia- velcpment of family planning programs in the province. "The provincial govern- said Dr. Tcoley, "is making an effort to develop publicly financed family planning clinics in a co-or- dinated fashion to supplement the services provided by pri- vate practitioners. Role of clinic Flying visit C_J Dr. Robert Tooley, director of family planning for the Dept of National Health and Welfare in Ottawa and Norman Knight, principal program officer, board plane for Edmonton, where they will oitsnd the Alberta Fa.nily Planning conference. Dr. Tooley and Mr. Knight made a stop-over In Lelhbridge Monday to inspect the Birth Control and Information Centre, located on the corner of 7 St and 6 Ave. S The Lethbridge clinic, he said, "is operated partly by funds from provincial pre- ventive social services, to which the federal government contributes 50 per cent of the ccsts. "In addition, they also have a family planning grant from the federal government to help buy equipment and sup- plies. "There's a big role here for voluntary organizations like this one. which has sev- eral important the doctor pointed out. "First, it is able to carry out the important role of pro- viding the public with infor- mation about the purposes and methods of family plan- ning. "Then it is also able to draw the attention of gov- both municipal and provincial "to commun- ity needs in family plan- nings." These needs, he said, "vary from community to commun- ity. "In general terms, there are piobably two groups in particular whose needs have net bean adequately met in the Dr. Tcoley assert- ed, "the unmarried, sexually- active teenagers and the other group of people on low incomes who have not had easy access to a family phy- sician." i Marrying" cleric kept busy tying knots Careful spenders TORONTO (CP) The news- paper ad reads: "Marriage services by Rev.

"It is a study of the repro- duction behavior of a sam- ple population in the greater Edmonton area. The purpose of the highly- confidential study is to dis- cover if there are any basic differences in the know- ledge, attitudes and practices in the various ethnic groups being surveyed.
