Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LHKBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, May 31, 1973 Just Jude By JUDE TURIC TiifflV ii i .111 ft t'li'iiii A LOBSTER came into my life recently and as he sat on ti'.e table wrapped in a soggy newspaper. I felt a distinct pang of guilt. I had nothing whatsoever to do Viith his present plight, but the steady stare he gave me over droopy feelers made ma sorry that he was there. He didn't smell very good and lacked ery red and sore, and I felt even worse when T discovered that he had probably screeched as he was lowered head-first into boil- ing water. But. trjing to be as good an Easterner as a Westerner can be. I put compassion aside acd agreed to try a morsel. Getting at the meat of the matter turned cut to be a n a u s e a t ing experience, as Red (he already had a nick- name) had to have one of his claws cracked open for a start The smaller claw gave way under pressure, sending a sally spray of lobster juice into my eye: the other staunchly refused to be vio- lated by hand, and necessi- tated the use of a hammer lock protection Consumers' Association of Canad; reminds home and apartrajot dwellers that night chains should not be relied upon for burglar protection.

Minus two hands Red seemed grotesquely bent out of shape, and was soon to be submitted to having bis tail broken off as well. By this time, I had nearly turned green watching what was supposed to be a delicacy dissected piece by piece. Once free of the shell, an offering of lobster meat was thrust in my direction; pale sections of the stuff with in- dentations where the cover- ing had been, dripping juice and feeling fleshy when bit- ten. Much to my surprise, the guilt vanished once I had a taste of poor ole Red. and a desire to have a chomp on some claw meat replaced the leftover compassion wander- ing through my mind. I received instructions as to how to go about relieving Keeping it all in the famly are husband and wife, which will be put to use in various community projects the claw of the flesh, and set I Bill and Cathy Johnson, presidents of the Kinsmen end Helping handful of money This Summer Relax in the Sun with an ACORN POOL Phone 328-3402 about following directions. It worked, and the insides were even bet- ter than the tail-end portion and pleasantly reminiscent of white chicken meat. By the time I'd finished my feed of lobster. Red and his companions had been devour- ed and all that was left were sad lobster bodies with or without legs, stray claws and partially buried hammers and nutcrackers. The compassion and nausea came back. I was told by the best of authorities (bom and raised an Easterner) that that was what life is all about a good feed of fresh-frcm-the- ocean lobster. Somehow, no matter how often I tried to remember the taste and the advice. I still visualize Red without his claws, and the fun went out of it.' In retaliation I've decided to eat only restaurant-type steak and lobster in the fu- ture. After all. what I can't see won't bother me.

Suzanne Alexanderson said: "When people phone they sound so shaken and so scared. "They don't know how to bsgin. As they are expressing it to me, they find they're paralysed." Interval House is a new place, opened in April by a group of young women to offer support and shelter to mothers in crisis situations. Miss Alexanderson said: "We felt a lot rf women were unprepared and perhaps frightened about going out into the work force with their children to look after. "We wanted to provide a place where they could get a little support from each other, find out that they're not unique. ''We could provide accom- modation, meals, child tend- ing, look alter their physical needs to take the pressure off them while they assess their situations. We want to give them time to rest and decide whether to go back into the marriage, get a job, get re- training." CITES PROBLEMS In practice, the Interval House staff supplies a great deal more, including their own warm concern for the mothers and their children. They began organizing their project in February, getting in touch with social agencies, government bureaus, churches, hospitals. They are able to supply their mothers with informa- around. There is such a de- mand, the centres all have long Interval House has. for now, a staff of 12. They have a Local Initiatives Program. grant and may get an Oppor- tunities for Youth grant if that isn't extended. They have had help from the city "for renova- tions to the house, subsidies from Metro social services for mothers who can't pay their v, ay. "They all know there's a need for this service, but be- cause of bureaucracy and lack of funds, they can't do it themselves." Miss Alexanderson said she wants to attract volunteers to work regularly because she feels there is a good chance alcoholism or heavy emo- tional difficulties. "None of us are professional anything, but we don't really need to be, because we have our professional contacts. It's mostly just talking and being friendly.

Nurse of the year MOSTLY UNSKILLFO Interval House in time will accommodate 20 people, four or five mothers and their chil- dren. The women come to them through referrals from social agencies, and the staff prefer to accept women who want to get jobs, not just wait until their welfare arrangements are made. "We're trying, through our referrals and interviews, to pick people who are moti- vated, who want to go out and do something." She said it is too soon to make any general comments, but as yet the mothers they have taken in have been young, poor, and unskilled. Several of them married to get out of unhappy parental home situations. They have held only odd jobs, if any, and have little idea of how to look after themselves. Miss Alexanderson said they want to keep the number of women at Interval House at any given time small, because they hope to encourage an at- mosphere of friendly inter- Stipport. She said the intake by refer- ral is also designed to protect Interval House and its staff from problems they aren't equipped to handle, such as ocal napper, tnqs group of senior citizens will meet at 2 p.m. Monday at the Salvation Army citadel to dis- cuss rental accommodation for low-income senior citizens.
