Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Frlflay, 3, 1972 _ THE IFTHBRIDCE HERALD _ Rehab Society expanding services The Lethbridge Rehabilitation Society for the Handicapped has received a grant of from the provincial government to increase its sheltered work- shop services. The grant has enabled the society to double the size of its workshop staff and double the workshop's capacity from 20 to 40 clients. The previous workshop staff consisted of Frances Gardner, the supervisor, and a part-time driver. Mrs. Gardner lias since retired and is being replaced by Dave Stockham in the ex- panded capacity of managing director. Two supervisors have been added to the staff. They are Bill Larson, 50, a former auto- mobile workshop manager in the cily and a board member, and Josephine Staddon, 31, of Coaldale. Miss Staddon is a graduate in special education from the University of Leth- bridge. THE Mr. Stockliaiu, 20, was the manager of a workshop oper- ated by the Saskatchewan Coun- cil for Crippled Children and Adults in Swift Current before coming here to take up his new job two months ago. He is trained in education and psy- chiatric nursing. "The grant is to pay sLaff sal- aries and staff training for the period ending March 31 next Mr. Stockham said. "The provincial government has promised to give us addi- tional grants if we have 40 clients by April 1." -The society's plan is to even- tually Increase the capacity la 80 clients. "We hope lo do lhat in two he said. CLIENTS The clients are people who have difficulty finding employ- ment in the open market "be- cause of mental, physical, emo- tional, intellectual or social im- pairment" but who should also "be capable of an Independent levei of self-care in the eat- ing, dressing and hygiene areas." Admission of clients, who will be paid nominal wages but will still be dependent on welfare, is the responsibility of a 12- m a n professional advisory board, Mr. Stockham said. The lower age limit is 16 years, the upper age limit at the discre- tion of Uic board. WORKSHOP A change is "from the pre- vious activity centre to. an in- dustrial he said. Clients will work a full eight- hour day instead of the five- hour day in the past. This Is in line with the society's goal, which is to ultimately rehabili- tate clients back into the com- petitive job market. Mr. Stockham pointed out that a survey by the Alberta Re- habilitation Council for the Dis- abled says one per cent of the population is handicapped and has difficulty in finding employ- ment in the open market. POTENTIAL CLIENTS Given the city's share alone, there are more than 400 po- tential clients who need some sort of rehabilitation "not to Australian scientist leaves city Dr. James Gallagher has fin- ished a one-year term of ser- vice at the Lethbridge Re- search Station and is return- ing to New South Wales, Aus- tralia. He was working as a National Research Council Postdoctorate Fellow with Dr. J. A. Vesely of the animal science section at the station. He said he chose the Leth- bridge station because of its international recognition as a leader in animal science re- search. During his stay, Dr. Gallag- her studied reproductive perfor- mance of farm animals. He considers the experience gained in Canada will be put to good use in Australia. He said reproductive ineffici- ency is a major problem for fanners and ranchers In Aus- tralia. mention the surrounding areas in southern Mr. Stockham said. The workshop still has 17 va- cancies. In addition to previous pro- jects, Mr. Stockham has con- tracted more work from Auto- matic Electric, a telecommun- ications company in Lethbridge. New projects will start shortly with Pre-Built Industries, and discussions are under way to contract projects from Inter- national Distillers by next fall. The projects the workshop contracts for its clients are rela- tively simple, such as rlbbo stamping, placing labels on hot ties and fitting components int containers. The money makes, relatively Insignificant is distributed to the clients. "Because it is a rehabilita lion workshop, the clients ar under no Mr. Stock ham said. "They do whateve they are capable of doing." The contractors have to hav such work done anyway, am! the workshop usually charge less than it would cost the con tractor to have his employees do it.

The 16th purple and yellow bus will be added to the city's transit fleet Saturday. The 52 passenger bus, cap- able of highway travel, is being driven to Lethbridge from Lon- don, Ont. The vehicle cost W3.000. Bus drivers will also become part of the new look this month. Their new uniforms, consist- ing of purple jackets, grey slacks and gold shirts, are ex- pected to arrive any clay now. Local transit system officials have suggested holders of pen- sioners bus passes avoid using the buses during the rush hour. With the large number of passengers using the transit service between 4 o'clock and p.m. weekdays, senior citi- zens cannot be assured of as comfortable a ride as at other times in the day, a transit spokesman said. All that from just tree rings? The study of tree rings can reveal many facts such as whether the summer of 436 was rainy or dry in Persia. Dr. C. W. Ferguson, associ- ate professor of dendrochronol- ogy at Ihe University of Ari- zona, said certain tree rings can reveal climate as long as years ago. If the rings are widely sep- arated, it means it was a wet year while rings close together reveal a dry year.

Dr. Ferguson said a number of pine trees in the San Berna- dino Mountains, which were killed by pollution f-om the Los Ajigeles Basin, showed a very definite unnatural termination of growth in the tree rings. Softwood trees generally tell more than hardwoods, said Dr. Ferguson, because their rings arc more sharply defined.
