Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta i _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, Novombor 7, 1970 By CHRISTINE P0IIL Hcrnld Staff Writer From amongst the aroma o sweet-smelling vat of slushy liquids and splotche: of color spattered Art Wor emerges a batik with its panorama of color and design. Batik is a word describing the technique of hand-dyeing fabrics using wax as a dye repellent to cover parts of a design. It first appeared around the 12th century but is just Easy A gaining popularity among youth. Although the process was very intricate for the Japanese who elaborately washed and soaked to secure the right texture and then used detailed designs mostly from memory, 1" A.' "'I For The I Record 1 1 1 By MARILYN ANDERSON jjtoLrJ 1 Herald Family Editor JT'S A SHAME today how parents can no longer communicate with, their children. It isn't from lack of interest or lack of time, but from lack of language. Sign language might be more appropriate since words are either missing or unintelligible. Parents frequently use too many words and the younger generation gets along with too few. Kids turn off after the first 10 words, and parents give up after the first 50. There's also a lack of topics. Music is called the international language and it may do much for international relationships. It hasn't been found to do a thing for the more internal ones. Just about the biggest blunder a poor unsuspecting parent can make is to by to talk music with teen children. Comments like "is the record playing on the wrong will win you a free copy of How to Win Friends and Influence Enemies. You'll need it. Throwing in a few words about the latest song on the hit parade is another baddy. The hit parade changes so rapidly, according to one source, that the songs are on the top 10 before the kids have heard them, let alone the parent who listens as infrequently as possible. Then there's toe trickies that you have to handle with care. The Beatles for instance may show that you are from last year's leftovers. unless you're talking about the Nashville recordings that Ringo et al are planning to do. Then you're running on the inside track. A revival in days of yore meant Bible-thumping and pounding. Now the only pounding is on the skins of the Creedence Clearwate'r Revival, a rock group. Dominoes isn't a game that many kids play these days so if you hear your offspring talking about Derek and the Dominoes, it's not the old times coming back, it's another sound. Even if tiie zeppelin is old stuff to modern arsenals or aeronautics, kids know what the Led Zeppelin is no it's not lead it's Led. If you want to really stun yourself and your new music addicts, throw "despite the interest in hard rock, as played by people like Led Zeppelin, I find my own taste runs to the classical slant of the Moody Blues or even the erotic rock of the Stones, which bears little resemblance to the nonsense rock of Zappa or the pure blues of B. B. King." It'll really show them you're a chip off the old r. O More A Push chandising of pork. "Hiey've really done a beautiful job of she said, even to the less-frequently used cuts of pork shoulder. Miss Patterson continues her cross country tour today in Vancouver. Prc Canadian pork is of better quality than in former days but is not enjoying the right image of Canadian shoppers. This was the essence of the message given by Jean Patterson, home economist with Canada Packers Friday. In Lethbridge as part of a cross-country tour Miss Patterson said many of the old fallacies about pork still exist in the mind of tho consumer. In this cholesterol-conscious society, pork is still associated i'; f S f 4 S 'S JEAN Nee with fat, and yet present-day pork is leaner than it has ever been. "A certain amount of fat is said Miss Patterson, "for flavor and moisture. One U.S. paper on the study of pork showed that pound !or pound and muscle for muscle, pork does not have any more fat than beef." Attitudes about pork are the concern of the Ontario Food Council as well, who is1 conducting a consumer survey on why people do or do not eat pork. One fallacy is being torn down by Miss Patterson's research, that of the need to cook pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 185 degrees. Research shows that pork at an internal temperature of 170 degrees is more flavorful and juicy, yet is safe to eat. Pork cooked to 140 degrees is safe to eat but, researchers are not optimistic about Canadians wishing to eat pork with the amount of pinkness which would remain. Pork can be safely stored in the freezer and refrigerator, and a meat thermometer is the best indicator when meat is done to avoid overcooking as well as undercoofcing. Miss Patterson praised local retail outlets for their Settled By Age Not Religion WHITEHORSE, Y.T. (CP) -Accommodation for out-of-town students attending school in Whitehorse this fall has been arranged by age rather than by religious affiliation as in past years. Commissioner James Smith said the territorial policy is to keep students in their home settlements wherever possible arid that the Yukon government has increased school construction during the last few years to make the policy possible. Residential areas, such as the two large dormitories here, will be reduced, but at present they are needed, he said. Lack Of Self-Conficlence, Women By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) A great many qualms and uncertainties beset women who think they might like to get jobs again after some years at home, Eh'zabeth Pie, careers counsellor with tlie women's bureau of the Ontario department of labor, talks to 50 or 60 women every month who are looking lor advice about what sort of job they might get, and how to go about getting it. "Probably the most out-gtanding feature among these women is their lack of self-confidence and of awareness of where they could fit into the work she said. In cases their training degree Is useless or badly outdated. "The whole business world even the machines they worked has changed. "Friends and family tell hem things that are often mis-eading. You get both ends the scale, people who over-estimate and people who under-es-timate. They need someone outside their personal circle to help them judge." MONEY NO PROBLEM Miss Pie and Maria Wacyk, another counsellor, may suggest a training program, a refresher course, an area of work based on interest. She said that not many of the clients have a pressing need for money. If they had, they would not be in her office. "In no sense are we involved in job placement. We offer a one-shot interview of about an hour to the woman who has been out of the job market for a while to help her determine if she has any skills to offer an employer. "We try to help her in terms of the background she provides the counsellor, her education, employment history and her goals." Most of the clients are women whose families are grown, but Miss Pie said her office is beginning to see an increasing number of younger women who want, advice on starting a long-range program, "I'm pleased to find younger women planning ahead because the life style of women is changing. Besides, though you don't like to think about it, some may return to work Labor cause they have to if something happens to their husbands." Many of the women are taking short courses to equip themselves to work in paramedical or other semi-professional jobs. If a course isn't possible, she suggests they try to find work, even oa a Nee leal level, in a field that inter-jests them. "We suggest they look lor an atmosphere in which they'd be happy. If they're ingenious they are often successful in tracking down a situation they'd like to be in. "For instance, if they've done volunteer hospital work Help have always wanted to be a nurse, then a job as a clerk on a ward might interest them. "A lot of them tell us what they would like to have been." Many of them would find a straight clerical job in a large office boring, especially if it involved working with an office full of young women. "They wouldn't stay with it. They would much prefer something that has more personal satisfaction. "The ones who seem most likely to succeed are the women who have a lot of initiative to begin with and are not easily discouraged by a number of 1 negative responses. "T h e degree of motivation behind the return to work has a great deal to do with a woman's success." SOME NOT EEADY Some put obstacles in their way, presumably because they were not really ready to go to work. "They say they will work only for a few days or at certain hours, or they put geo-jraphic limitations on it. If :hey are going to return to work only on these conditions, t's not very likely they will be successful." The counselling service was jegun as a pilot project in 196T. it now is offered at another location in Toronto and in London, Hamilton and Windsor, 3nt, on a part-time basis, Miss Pie said the women and heir problems don't differ, but the work and educational op-lorfunities do vary from city to ci y and she tries to base advice on local conditions. She said tha response has >een so great that the bureau lopes to extend the service to other areas. 1 Best For BUENOS AIRES (AP) -Childbirth should not be taken lying down, an Argentine doctor says. He advocates a Births al vertical position which he says people used before doctors introduced the "modern torture" of the delivery table. Dr. Tucho Perrusi, honored by the Argentine Medical Association for bis studies, has invented a special chair for delivering babies. "Look at the ease with which mothers give birth in taxis and trains, without assistance of any he says. "The seated or squatting position obviously plays a decisive role in the ease and speed of birth." A biologist who later obtained a medical degree, the 52-year-old general practicioner says tfomen in so-called primitive societies still deliver in a vertical position. When physicians interfered in this heretofore private act about 200 years Perussi claims, they placed the mother on a table as a matter o! convenience and their own pride. "Of course, it was easier for the doctor to work. And physicians could not be seen in such a humble position, on their knees, in front of the patient." Perussi's device, resembling a dentist's chair permits the obstetrician to stand while delivering the baby. A study of babies, half of them delivered in Perussi's chairs and half on the conven-t onal table, indicated that cliair delivered infants had a better record of blood pressure, temperature, pulse and other physiological signs. The chair assists the mother in pushing out the child ami she docs not need the physician's help in expelling the placenta, Pcrussi Week Marked With Book Fair Young Canada Book Week Nov. 15-21 will be celebrated with a Book Fair at Wilson Junior High School.

As one haphazard artist said, "The messier the tetter. It' I don't like a color I just wax around it and Who cares about the design." Not only are business offices using brightly-colored and rea- sonably-priced batiks as wall hangings, but .as chair covers and pillows. Yardages of male- rial are printed in batik and cut into garments or mod-wrap arounds. If you wondered what that brightly-colored dressing screen is, it could very likely be a batik. The process is simple: Any size piece of cotton sheet or silk, (avoid drip dry fabrics) which has been washed to re- move fabric fillers, will do. Draw a design with charcoal. A design from a magazine, such as a lion head, cartoon, Aztec sun or who-knows-wliat will do. A tin of beeswax and paraf- fin is heated in a tin on a hot- plate. Hot wax is applied with a bristle brush to the areas to retain the original color. Then tho entire fabric is soaked in warm water. Put the fabric into the first dye which is usually yellow be- cause ihe dyeing scheme is from light to dark. It must be a liquid dye and in warm or cool water, or the wax will melt. Then tile batik is taken out and sponged so it won't run anil hung to dry. A second dyeing is done the same with hot wax- applied so tlie colors would re- main from the first dyeing and so on. A aide variation in color may be obtained by immersing a combination of colors, such as red in blue for purple, or orange in yellow for green, llandpainting may also be used with waterproof inks or dyes to avoid extra dye baths. Once the desired color scheme is obtained, iron or soak in solvents to remove all the wax. Now you'll have a completed batik. Unless special batik dyes have been used, the batik should be drycleancd to avoid having the colors run. It also may be starched for a better appearance. Classes in batik have been offered at the Bowman Arts Centre and in advanced design courses at the University ol Lethbridge. LOCAL BATIK This radiant gold and reel Aztec sun is an example of local batik which hangs in one Lethfaridge professional office.
