Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 IE7HBRIDGE HERAID Thimday, Moy II, For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor EIGHT more days until the doors dose on another school term. Youth has taken its place in the news this year from drug use (or misuse) to pollution probes, to hostels for transient youth. Transient youth is a misnomer. People use hostels. Some are older, and some are younger than others. Some of the older ones and some of the younger ones are transient. Both are out travelling for a vari- ety of reasons. Some are looking for work. Some are looking for fun. Some are on drugs. Some are not. Not all the people taking drugs are on the road or under IS. Wonder if Winston Churchill biology students Old were down at the Civic Sports Centre Tuesday? They'd have witnessed one of the biggest reasons for pollution thoughtless people- in this case, a track meet full of hungry kids who dropped their garbage wherever they stood. No reason for it, kids. The track meet was comprised of kids from Allan Watson. Gilbert Paterson, Hamilton and Wilson Junior High, and it's our feeling that delegations from each school should have been either patrolling the area, or in charge of cleaning up. If individual conscience doesn't glean results then someone has to take the reins. There's no reason why city workers should have to clean up after a track meet, nor should the resi- dents of the surrounding area be forced to clean up the offending papers from their yards. Heard one mother say that she doesn't have a pile of children's drawings and school papers at the end of tie. year. After they've been duly ad- mired by the family, the papers get sent off to Grand- ma and Grandpa (out-of-town) to be read and admired some more. Grandparents love to receive these little missiles and it saves wondering where to put the next year s batch of Easter bunnies wonder if the post office is really serious about cracking down on junk mail? If you haven't doting grandparents to send papers to don't lose hope. In a few years, when they_ stop making Easter bunnies and start leaving unfinished assignments, there is a sudden drop in "work brought home." Instead of being mistaken for Miss Jones, you re taken down a peg or two if you even faintly resemble or use the same phrase as Mr. Kling or Mrs. Nag. And so on to graduation winch in this day of ceremonies and "occasions" even takes place in Grade 9 What Grade 9 students are graduating from is a mystery. A Grade 10 education is almost a required minimum today. An awards day or recognition day, fine, but graduation, no. Might just as well have graduation from Grade 6. It's the same principle. We salute the eventual outcome of the battle be- tween the National Press Club and the women jour- nalists of the Ottawa area. About 75 women reporters and journalists will now be eligible for membership although female public realtions and government information employees will still be barred. Criticism had been lodged against the club since January 25 when women had been turned down. Several members had resigned over the issue and even John Diefenbaker took up the cudgel in defense of the women. Men have a right to a men's club and women to a women's club but working press includes both. Besides a lot of leads and information crosses tables in informal gatherings._________________ CASH BINGO This Thursday Evening, May 28th STARTS P.M.

Slit Skirt Modifies Midi NEW YORK (AP) Cheer up, men! The midi hasn't hid- den the leg forever. Faced by women who want to be chic with long hems and sexy with short ones, the fash- ion industry has come up with a compromise: The slit skirt. Many styles come with but- tons frorc waist to hem, leav- ing it up to the wearer to de- cide how much leg to show. 'I have a black midi that buttons down the said one girl "I button all the but- tons for work, half for dinner and leave it open to the top of the thigh for really fancy dates." 'Most women's legs look bet- ter when you get only a glimp- se of them, said one young man. voting for the slit skirt. Designer Bill Blass, in Ms recently-shown fall collection, showed several dresses with midioverskirts slit to the waist to reveal minis underneath.

It is home to 80 elderly men and women. Most of them have no family. Many of them found their way to the lodge by way of social work and public health agencies. A Toronto alderman says it looks like something out of Charles Dickens and should be torn down. Its present administrator, H. R. Geldart, says he under- stands there are no capital funds available to replace it immediately, so in the mean- time renovations are being done with provincial money. He says it may have a life of only another three or four years as an old people's home, but he would like to see the main part of the building survive as a landmark. It might be used as administra- tive offices, since inspectors have said the structure is sound enough. Residents seem in favor of keeping up. OLD FOLKS LIKE IT "We understand you can't make an old building into a new said one. "We also know people are doing their best to fix this place up. If you rip it down, where are we to go? We get every- thing, we need. We like it." The lodge was begun in 1837. The oldest part of the present building went up in 1848, and additions have been put on eveiy which way. Where do you spend limited funds on an old building with an uncertain fate? Mr. Gel- dart says that with the excep- tion of money spent on im- proving the sprinkler system priority has been given to ren- ovations that will add some pleasure and dignity to the lives of the residents. Lighting and wiring have been improved, bathrooms renovated, and some of the building's interior has been painted by volunteers in or- ange and yellow, bright colors chosen by a council of resi- dents. Next come partitions. The least-attractive features of the lodge are the dormitories. They provide no privacy, and the worst, of them are in "traffic" '-areas people must walk through to get from one part of the rambling building to another. An experimental set of par- titions will go in shortly, to be used, judged and commented on by residents. Then the rest will be built. MAKE SOME PROFIT "The final design will be up to them. We build a few, let them live in them a week and tell us what's wrong." There are plans to move the infirmary into wbat was a staff apartment to increase its privacy and safety. There is a coffee shop now, established with money from private donations. Mr. Gel- dart says the residents are pleased because it has made some money. They want to give their profits to charities. He says the residents' coun- cil of elders has chosen the menus, new dishes and cur-" tains. "There is a trend to resi- dent councils in homes for the aged. They are not just a group of people we can bull- doze, and they know if there is anything that can be done by the staff we'll do it. "There is too much tend- ency to look upon old people as children. They are people, human beings. We tell them this is their residence, just as most of them had a residence 25 years ago." He says both residents and staff are enjoying an offshoot of the new activity. They are hoping to set up a museum room with things found to the building. They already have a wind-up record player, a razor strop, a framed 1837 fin- ancial report, a nurse's uni- form of uncertain vintage and an old Bible. Laughlen Lodge is a private institution with a volunteer board of directors. It has op- erated largely on residents' payments plus some donated funds. Mr. Geldart says most residents have only their old age pensions, which do not caver costs. Since he became adminis- trator in August, the provin- cial government has been providing a subsidy of to a month to help pay off the operating deficit and do the renovations. They have also loaned the help of provin- cial employees including a chartered accountant and ar- chitects. Newborn Babies Endangered For Convenience LOS ANGELES (AP) Doc- tors often endanger newborn ba- bies by using drags on the mother to speed or delay birth1 only for the doctor's conven- ience, a pathologist says. Doctors sometimes use drugs to avoid delivery or ensure a golf date, said Dr. Abraham Lu of the University of Southern California. 'Anesthetics and hypnotics that delays births, or drugs that induce labor, should' never be used to arrange a birth for somebody's he said. In an interview Lu said instruments as weU as drugs are often used unneces- sarily by obstetricians, increas- ing the chance of injury to the fetal circulation of blood, a cause of such impairments as cerebral palsy and mental re- tardation.
