Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, May 18, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD OPEN WIDE - Carol Ankill, second year nursing student at St. Michael's stands up for regular inspection by Mrs. Iris Mossey, director of health services in St. Michael's. Mrs. Mossey was recently awarded the Nurse of the Year award by the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses, in Banff. City nursing director honored Mrs. Iris Mossey, director of health services in St. Michael's General Hospital, and school of nursing, was chosen Nurse of the Year, by the Alberta Association of Registered Nurses at its annual conference held in Banff. Mrs. Mossey, who is responsible for the health and well-being of the staff and students at St. Michael's, received the Abe Miller Memorial Award in recognition of her "outstanding contribution to the nursing pro-fession, community activities, humanitarian interests, and individual contribution in her own specific area of work." She serves as the health officer for employees of the hospital, so as not to create "a health hazard for the patients of the hospital," according to Mrs. Mossey She also serves with the faculty of the nursing school on a consultive basis, and helps Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Will you please tell me why a well-educated, well-traveled,, socially prominent, affluent, middle-aged woman who spends a fortune on clothes and a mint of money in the beauty shop is content to go through life with two ugly hair-sprouting moles on her face? One is about the size of a large pea. The other is nearly as big as a dime. Whenever I see this woman I am jarred anew by the sight of her moles although I have known her for several years. I cannot understand her indifference. Is it possible she is unaware of these unsightly growths? Would it be terribly rude of me to suggest that she have them removed? I'd like to hear your opinion on this - Cape Cod DEAR COD: Keep quiet. The woman knows the moles are there. If she wanted to do something about them she would. Apparently they do not bother her. And, frankly, they should not bother you that much. I suspect someone in your childhood (a person you didn't like) had hair-sprouting moles, and this is why you are overreacting. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Who do you think you are that you can call a person insensitive, inconsiderate and sadist just because she telephones a friend in the middle of the night to tell her a mutual acquaintance has died? More often than not the person who makes such a call hates to be the one who breaks the bad news, but someone has to do it. What about nurses, doctors, police officers? Are these people sadists also? I hope you do better on your next answer. This one was lousy. - Green Bay Reader DEAR GREEN: Nurses, doctors and police officers must notify the next of kin because it is their professional responsibility to do so. Instructions must be given and decisions must be made. It is up to the family to issue orders. Please tell me what purpose is served by waking up a person in the middle of the night to inform him that a mutual acquaintance has died? The person who gets the call can do nothing but lose a night's sleep. As I said in my first response, anyone who feels that he cannot wait until morning to pass the bad news has a streak of sadism. keep staff and student health records. Mrs. Mossey completed her nursing in the Gait School of Nursing and began work in St. Michael's in August, 1964. She received her bachelor of science degree, and majored in public health. A widow for 16 years, Mrs Mossey has two married daughters, and a son. 25-YEAR VOLUNTEER MEMPHIS, Tenn.

An efficient network called Small Fry Telephone Systems operates in 20 areas of Alberta, including children's hospitals, cerebral palsy clinics and retarded childrens' schools. Unlike conventional telephone systems, Small Fry uses obsolete equipment, has no shareholders, no salaried employees and doesn't charge for the service. In hospitals and schools, the system helps children with speech problems, provides exercise and aids in developing coordination. Additionally, children find the telephones first-class playthings. The Small Fry system was developed by a group called Telephone Pioneers, which has branches in Canada and the United States. This group takes "retired" switchboards and telephones and installs them in hospitals and clinics. Tom Starkie, president of the Alberta chapter of the Pioneers, said equipment is donated by telephone companies and installed and maintained by the Pioneers. "There is practically no cost involved once the equipment is set up," he said in an interview. The switchboards are the old cord type, while the telephones range from the crank type to dial phones, depending on which is best suited to the school involved. When a telephone is picked up it rings the switchboard. By plugging the cord into the right slot a connection is made. Calendar of local La Nor-Alon Family Group meet Wednesday at 8 p.m. (upstairs), 418 13th St. N. * � * Christian Science testi m o n y meeting Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the church auditorium, 1203 4th Ave. S Everyone welcome.  * * Preceptor Eta Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi will hold its ritual degree honoring Mrs. Helen Berlando at the Park Plaza tonight at 8:30 p.m. Ladies of the Old Timers Pemmican Club will hold the regular whist card party in the club rooms, 9th St. and 5th Ave. S., tonight at 8 p.m. Handling the cords exercises the arm, wrist and hand muscles and improves co-ordination. Answering the telephone stimulates muscular activity, and children seem to enjoy twirling dials. Children normally reluctant to do speech exercises often are eager to participate when the telephones and switchboards are used. "We think they are wonderful," said Winnifred Stewart, who runs a school in Edmonton for.retarded children. "We teach the children to handle emergency calls, call for groceries and call their own homes. "The hookup in our school is between two rooms, and the children talk back and forth. Often a child hesitant in talking will talk on the telephone with another student "We find they vocalize better and are more relaxed. The children seem to react to mechanical devices." Gallery head to address Edmonton meet EDMONTON (CP)-Dr. Jean Sutherland Boggs, director of the national gallery of Canada in Ottawa, will be featured speaker at the international federation of business and professional women here July 5-10. Isabel MacMillan, editor of the federation's international magazine, said here D r. Boggs will speak on "women in the arts in the significant seventies." The meeting will bring together about 1,250 women from the 44 member countries. The federation has about 250,000 members. Dr. Boggs was appointed director of Canada's gallery in 1966.
