14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesdoy, Moy 29, 1973--------------------------------------------------------- Canadian national symbol grows well in temperate zone By DOL'G SMALL OTTAWA (CP) A maple tree be nice, you say, looking at your yard, perhaps dreaming of your own live na- tional symbol or a tree swing for the kids. A. R. Buckley of the federal agriculture department's plant research institute writes in a recent issue of Garden Notes that maples are among the most common trees grow- ing in temperate countries. Forty-eight varieties grow at the institute's arboretum here. Some of the most difficult to grow are sugar maples, mainly because they need well-drained, rich soil. They also grow more slowly than other maples native to Can- aca. Silver maples are among the most beautiful, but are not usually considered gocd trees tor small gardens. Neverthe- less, they witrs.and moist conditions and will grow fast much as 43 feet in 12 they are planted in larger areas. Silver maples are brittle trees, easily devas- tated by ice-storms. Most maples, however, are useful for planting in gardens, the publication says. Sugar or hard maples, black and red maples and the box elder are among the most common. All but the box elder, which has compound leaves like an ash, have simple leaves with three to five lobes opposite each other and long, slender leaf stalks. The box elder is often consi- dered a weed tree "because of its untidy habit of shedding seeds in late spring and the ubiquity of its seedlings, which seem to germinate in every nook and Mr. Buckley writes. ELDERS PEKSIST "Often the trees have per- sisted in gardens where they have sprung up spontaneously from self-sown seeds and the owner has allowed them to de- velop. By the time their bad traits are discovered, the trees have become part of the garden, producing shade and and ou t screening for the owner and his neighbor, making their re- moval almost sacrilegious. "In such cases, one must endure its untidy and prolific fruits, lack of fall color, brit- tle wood and ungainly out- line." The article suggests that mountain maples are worth considering as large shrubs for ornamental p u r p o s es. They grow from eight to 10 feet high, spread up to 12 feet vide and the leaves turn red in the fall. Striped maples are recom- mended for shady areas. They grow well in complete shade, produce large, light green leaves and striped, green bark. But they too need good drainage and rich soil. Most maples are best planted in Eastern Canada, but Mr. Buckley suggests growing amur maples on the Prairies. Such maples should be trained and pruned to a single stem. If not, they may grow into large shrubs with multiple stems. Executive elected for Rosalia house The Rc-salta House Society recently elected officers for the coming term of office during the annual meeting. Mrs. E. B. Wagenaar was named president, wirh Mrs. W. L. Kergan Mrs. W. R. Cousins, secretary and Mrs. J. Daryl Sturrock, treas- urer. Other officers include Mrs. Evelyn Bardell, Mrs. F. Cotton, Mrs. Margaret Cotton, Mrs. P. Butterfield; Mrs. J.

WAGENAAR president to establish a liaison between women who have made use of alcohol or drugs and are re- habilitating themselves, and those agencies and resources working towards helping them. The society will provide food, shelter, clothing, counselling anc a hcme atmosphere for the wo- men who reside there for any length of time. Women at the house will be expected to take part in home dut'es when it becomes physi- cally and mentally possible, and are to be encouraged to find employment once they leave the care of the home. Their general interests will be broadened so that they are able to cope with future diffi- culties and make better use of leisure time. The idea of Rosalta House was prompted by the needs of women who had developed drinking en drug addiction pro- blems and felt a halfway house would be an answer. Money for the operation of the horn 2 is being raised through numerous projects within the community, includ- ing a walkathon which was held last fall. The provincial government has agreed to provide financial support if a portion of the total operating cost for the year can be raised. E has been estimated that will be necessary to run the home for the first year. Mm-mm-mm good!

The bloused look in jackets, tops and dresses was a big fea- ture in the Anne Klein fall col- lection. The style should make fat ladies look fatter and slim ones look fabulous. Jackets and tops flanged out at the hip and ended in a wide band of elastic or knit. Some evening dresses were tied loosely below the waist. The hip emphasis continued with the long sweater, a hot item for fall. V-necked sweaters were pulled down over full- length wool evening skirts or pants and matched with cardi- gans. Miss Klein, who helped give sportswear the status it has tp- 3ay, also offered plenty of plaid blazers, easy skirts and slick leather pants suits. Along with the plaid coats and bloused jackets were a few kimono wrap coats and some swirling capes. Day colors were soft shades of chestnut, henna and grey- green. the present decade. The result is that nursing is threatened as a profession and could end up being a particularly wilh increased irul- itf'ncy in nursing's labor-man- agement relations. Miss Bohn said nurses form the largest health care group, vet the small number of doc- us and we shouldn't let tors and dentisls "boss she hopes nurses around She said will take action against physi- cians who behave unethically, or imcompe- tently on hospital wards. The nurses could go to their licens- ing bodies with formal com- plaints and with backing from nursing supervisors. "It will be a while before we find nursing administra'ion which will however." go along with this, In hfir address to the dele- gates, Miss Bohn said all reg- istered nurses should be edu- cated in a university setting, not in the hospital nursing schools. "The hospital trains aid in- doctrinates rather than educate the nurse. We must get av.ay from that, even in the two-year course now general across the country." The shift to an academic ap- proach would ease the way to- wards educating nurses along the concepts of illness ra'.her than old-fashioned disease pro- cesses. Improving the standards is a "big problem, because nurses are uninformEd and also don't read, so we have great trouble reaching them." "They still don't take enough of an interest in their profes- sional concerns."

HAMILTON (CP) There will be STO million in the citi- zer.s' cultures budget for the coming year, about S3 million of which will be available in grants to citizen groups. Chris Laing of the citizens cultures branch of the depart- ment of the secretary of state made the announcement at the same time as it was announc ed in the House of Commons. Mr. Laing, was a member o a panel cf government resour ces at the biennial meeting o; the National Council of Jewisl Women. He said the budget has risen from about million a year, i third of which has been spen on citizen grants. The rest of the money is used by govern- ment cultural arts such as the CBC and National Fim Board He said the branch also hopes to cut the time it takes to pro- cess the grant from three months to two months. As an example of what might be done with the increased budget Mr, Laing cited lan- guage teaching. He said part of the problem has been the lack of Canadian examples in teach- ing tools. Italian language text books, for instance, have come from Italy. UteeWhimsy tdurcen Spnrlinrj rrccival the onginnl art for VJrr Whirmy SrmJ yom-. In Iln; vip Majorie Blankstein of Winni- peg told panelists it had taken the group as long as seven months to get grant requests processed. "People don't always have the money to go ahead. Some projects just fade away." Ed Smee, the Hamilton re- gional liaison officer, said in the two years the cult u r e s branch had been, working, so many requests have come in that civil servants have been unable to keep up with them. He said in an interview that the greatest priority is given to cultural grants that bring groups into contact with cul- tures other than their own. He cited multicultural centres as an example. Mr. Smee said the emphasis is on helping Canadians to un- derstand and accept their dif- ferences rather than getting hung up on the idea that every- one must be the same. tvinoj Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: When you answered that lad from Plainfield who com- plained about his mother's cooking, you missed a gold- en opportunity. Instead of telling him that hospitality is more important than food, why didn't you tell him to learn to cook? Pioneering in the kitchen can be fun. While punching cows in the west, I was amazed at the men who could whip up a meal in no time at all. We had sheepherder spuds, sour- dough biscuits, smooth, lump- free gravy, beautiful steaks DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently I saw an advertise- ment in a respectable news- paper for "oils" that promis- ed to awaken "animal ins- stincts and arouse passion in males." I read the ad care- fully. The "oils" are made of whale blubber and secretions from skunk glands. For plus tax you can get one-third of an ounce of each. The ad said the oils release some sort of mys'erious odor that will "awaken the male's animal chsires with a sensu- DEAR ANN LANDERS: We live in a small commun- ity where everyone knows else. At a dinner party last night a banker had a few extra drinks and start- ed to talk about pwple who were having financial prob- lems. The more he talked the mere irrila'.ed I became. Fin- ally I told him that a banker should honor a code of ethics in the same way that a doc- tor is expected to. In other words, "Keep your mouth shut about your clients." His wifa became angry declared that money is non- psrfanal and in no way can it be compared with a per- son's medical problems. She insisted that almost every businessman enjoys talking about his investments, his and delicious coffee. When I started to cook my flapjacks were like linoleum squares, but when you begin like that, you've got to get better. Please tell your teen-age readers a world cf adventure awaits them in the kitchen. A guy who can cook is ahead of the pack for reasons that may not come clear to him for many years. Bar U Ranch, Sublette, Illinois DEAR BAR U: These days a man who can't cook is in trouble. If he has a working wife it's darned near manda- tory. Thanks for the teslimon- ial. ous power of a wave crashing upon the shore." I can't imagine a respect- able newspaper taking such an ad unless the product is legitimate. If it works it could solve my biggest problem. Please tell me if the stuff will do any good. Unlucky In Love DEAR UNLUCKY: The oils dD a lot of good for the company that sells them. They will get rich from suck- ers who should know better. profits and losses. In fact, she said, "Money is the sum .and substance of most male conversation.'' She was ex- tremely araculate but I still think she was wrong. Your opinion, please? Western, DEAR WESTON: Some clcds enjoy talking about their operations, their sex life and ether personal subjects. This doesn't make it acceptable. A banker who fails to re- spect the confidences of his customers violates a basic principle of business eLhics and good judgment. It's one thing for a person to talk about his own financial status, but it's quite another story when a banker gossips about his customers. EVERY WED. AT 2 P.M.
