Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 23, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 26 - THE UTHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, May 23, 1970 For The Record By MARIIYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor READERS often send in little items of interest which we can use for publication since they might be equally interesting to other readers. Once in a while we receive a delightful letter which cannot be cut into a news item without spoiling its charm Such a letter was written by Mr. Dave Gillespie, a resident of Devon Nursing Home in Lethbridge. Mr. Gillespie has taken the time to tell us about a going-away party held for Mrs. Els Van Peer matron of the Devon Nursing Home. Mrs. Van Peer is leaving for an extended trip to Holland, her homeland. Mr. Gillespie writes that head table guests included Mrs. Van Peer, Mrs. Mary Niven, Mrs. Arendina Van Egmond, Mrs. Bond, Mrs. Niven's mother and Mr. Gillespie, who acted as emcee for the occasion. "A large cake made specially for the occasion was placed in front of Mrs. Van Peer, who, with the help of Mrs. Niven and Mrs. Van Egmond, des-sicated it and handed it around." Mr. Gillespie in his remarks as emcee said they were "gathered here to give Mrs. Van Peer a hearty sendoff so that when she was in Holland with her family and friends she would be reminded of the many friends she had here who would be waiting patiently for her return. 'During her term she had so endeared herself to us that we not only love her but honor and respect her for her unselfishness beyond the line of duty. They would miss her for her happy smiling face and her friendly greeting and the days would be long and lonely until her return. "We have all experienced and received the benefit of your patience and kindness and I ask you to accept this gift as an expression of the place you hold in our hearts." Mr. Gillespie writes that Mrs. Van Peer suitably replied, but one can imagine that after such glowing words it would be through a misty, moisty feeling of appreciation and sentiment. The "inmates" (Mr. Gillespie's terminology) sang For She's a Jolly Good Fellow, a rousing send-off for anyone. Mr. Gillespie compliments Mrs. Rose Godfrey and Mrs. Niven for the arrangements for the ceremony. To other people the details of this party would have been ordinary but obviously it was a very special occasion at the Devon Home and especially so in Mr. Gillespie's reporting. Thank you, Mr. Gillespie, for a delightful letter and for sharing the occasion with us. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Beware, world-he's in no mood for foolishness today." Not Just Alienation, But Involvement Part Five Youth Unrest Reflects Mood Of Times By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Today's youth is different from that of yesteryear in more ways than their fads and habits, in reflecting the mood of the times, according to plenary speakers at the Child Welfare League of America's northwest regional conference in Vancouver recently. Youth unrest has been explained by the professionals as a lack of mental health, said Dr. J. Robertson Unwin, a noted Mont-real psychiatrist, "but we can't equate social unrest to mental health." Restlessness cannot be equated with poor mental health except in the case of the radicals who want to burn everything down. Student activists, he said, are shown to be superior students who score higher on personality tests. He said society is too happy to have shock troops to act out the anxiety of our times, and asked whether the slaughter of the innocents must be the price of social change. "Should we change the subject of their dissidence rather than the kids?" Because of the importance of education, a high school drop out is a failure in our technological society. There is a protracted period of dependence upon the family in our education system which tends to exaggerate any existing restlessness. Both he and Dr. Alfred Khan, professor of social work at New York's Colubia University referred to the crisis of the primary groups where so many of the functions of the primary groups have been taken over by and bamded over to society. Dr. Kahn said the social revolution of youth is an attempt to escape the primary group, but that they invent new primary group forms such as campus communes to get the security they want. Television was named as the new authority by Dr. Unwin, whereas once we had one set of authority backed up by parents, backed up by church and school.

A presentation of silver was made to the Johnstons by Dr. H. A. Arnold. Dr. G. S. Gray talked on highlights of the John stons professional and community life. Master of ceremonies for the occasion was Dr. E. A. M. Cairns. Out-of-town guests included Dr. and Mrs. Bob Pow of Calgary. Copture that once in a lifetime pose now] TERRI LYN 8 months doughlur of MR. and MRS. ROSS HORNBERGER MHK RIVER guidelines. Theories, based upon norms must change. Character is no longer created by two fumbling individuals, "the whole world's a sage." Dr. Kahn said communications has made visible what was invisible. Major disabling categories of race, ethnicity, color, class are being refuted by mem-bets of the social revolution. "They take words like humanity, decency, rights, seriously. They won't tolerate a continuation of these old statuses." "There is a feeling that if the world burns, maybe the next one will be better." Young people he said need, to be involved and fully particpate in society at an earlier age. Dr. Unwin said youth whether overgrown children or undergrown adults are not accepted by either group, although we tend to think of them as merely an extension of childhood. Youth's search for something else has led them to the Peace .Corps, the Company of Young Canadians, mysticism and the drug culture. Kids come from all strata, not just spoiled kids, said Dr. Kahn. The entire population seems to be seeking identity with others, said Dr. Kahn. Even our amenities have become bureau-cratized with book-of-the-mcnth, recwd-cf-tha-mcjirth, flower-cif- the-month, play-of-the-month. He said off-Broadway plays have become so bureaucratized that they have off off-Broadway plays. Joseph Reid, executive director of the Child Welfare League of America said that community concern for a child must begin at an early age. "Children still rank low on the totem pole in our society. He said the amount of money spent on a child in welfare in the U.S. was less than that allotted for a seeing eye dog. "Canada ranks above the U.S. in all areas of welfare. The U.S. is in the bottom quartile in health services in the western fare are not on community cat nations. "There is such a change in thinking patterns among racial groups in the U.S. that while we were once criticized for not placing non-white children in white foster homes, now we are being faced with accusations of race genocide for placing them in white homes." There is too much pressure on parents in uneconomic stability to give emotional stability to the children. More people must be involved in areas of welfare such as adoption and foster homes. Dr. Kahn supported this feeling that services of social wel- Not Enough Work For Support Calgary Models Defend On Spouse CALGARY (CP) - To be a model in Calgary a girl needs one important asset-a husband to support her, says one model bitterly. "There isn't enough work here to keep a girl fed-although she might survive on the Mayo Clinic diet," adds a fashion co-ordinator at one store. Work is seasonal, rates are low and there's price-cutting among models desperate for work and exposure. Calgary now has about 30 full-time models-some of whom make a living at it- and about another 300 who model irregularly. But people are going to have to get together if modelling is ever to become a full-fledged professional industry, said Bea Hayoz, 36, a fashion commentator. She'd like to see agencies, schools, models and commentators united. Until that happens, neither professional standards nor pay are going to improve, she said. The situation here has improved immeasurably in the last 10 years, however, she added. Most local advertising features Calgary models, small stores that have never before had fashion shows are starting to hold them, hotels are showing an interest in fashion-show luncheons and local television is providing more work. DO BETTER JOB "People are beginning to realize professional models do a better job than anyone else," model agent Gloria Hutton said. "Things can only get better." Most communities have modelling agencies, but everyone agrees the fastest way to lose money here is to try to oper- ate an agency without a modelling school. Anne Miller is one woman who tried. When she first moved to Calgary three years ago she found all the models making the rounds themselves. . She decided to take that job off their hands. She'd find the jobs; all the girls would have to do was show up for work on time. For Vk years she covered Calgary, "knocking on doors, which they kept slamming in my face." "And smiling, smiling, smiling." It didn't work out. Although she says other business pressures forced her to quit, she admits the agency was "a non-profit organization." Agencies earn their money both from employers and employees-10 per cent from stores, 10 per cent from models. Stores here simply refuse to pay the agency fee, she said. "I'm just facing the fact that Calgary is a small-thinking city." The only way to keep an agency going is to run a school as well, said Mrs. Hut-ton, who runs Savoir Faire, an agency and school. She calls her classes on self-improvement "the bread and butter of the business." COSTS THEM MONEY Many models refer to their business as a hobby. Some-times it may even cost money. Mrs. Miller said that a married model with children and living in the suburbs probably loses money on a single assignment. By the time she pays a baby-sitter (75 cents an hour), leaves three hours early to SECOND TIME AROUND - Car! and Hilma Blake, both 72, were 17 when they first married 55 years ago in Greeley Colo. They were divorced in 1929, after Blake moved west. Both remarried and there was no contact for 40 years. Blake got another divorce and Hilma's second husband died in Greely. Blake wrote a sympathy letter. They were remarried at Grace Lutheran Church here. "It was better the second time around," Blake said.

If she's paid by the picture, as some photographic models are, she might earn only $7.50. That's where a husband-or alimony, suggests one girl-come in. A model can't run off from a job for modelling assignments if it's her only source of income, but she can't do modelling assignments if she's tied to a daily job. Only with a husband can she keep herself free for a modelling job and not starve to death while waiting for the next one. endars for funds. Life itself is a basic need but acceptability, housing, food, education, health, are necessities as well. Welfare still carries a facade of charity. More than half the labor force is employed in the production of services rather than the production of goods. Of the U.S. GNP of 920 billion in 1969, 129 billion was spent in public services for welfare, health, education, housing, etc., he stated. This is a big piece of society, big enough to think of choices. We need to think of the priorities. We need to think, debate, advocate and plan,' he said. "We've met the enemy, and they is us." Dr. Kahn predicted that the legitimacy of our institutions is being questioned and will continue to do so, to the extent of conflagration and riots until the social sector is more ambitious to relate to the economy, physical developments, and goals and preferences become as important as productivity.
