Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta t-riday, November 8, THE LtTHBRIDGt HtRALu 23 key word in family life education By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer "Something has been going on in the development of a family life education program for separate schools since 1968, said the superintendent of separate schools Thursday. Ralph Himsl, who was speaking at a Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs meeting at Ericksen's, said despite earlier beginnings, further development of the program had been halted until the spring of 1973. At that time it was decided by teachers, parents and trustees that "something was really to help guide the developing attitudes of maturing adolescents. He said one of the most difficult aspects in the preliminary stages was the physiology of sex. Were teachers willing and ready for a program such as this? Parents, teachers and trustees all had a hand in the development of the program's curriculum. It came into operation last month and the format is continually changing. Maurice Landry, director of curriculum education in separate schools, said the program, as incor- porated, is changing on almost a dai- ly basis. He said because the program is brand new, it is necessary to have a flexible curriculum in order to meet the needs of the Grade 8 students as they arise. "The key word in the program is not sex, but communication." The idea is get students to talk about the daily session when they get home from school. Then, any discussions would tie in with the next day's class. He briefly outlined the program as originally developed but stressed the point that it is ever-changing. The program is basically broken down into three main sections development of the social being, family and preparing for family. Some of the key concepts being taught include love of self: the meaning of a family; the family as a means for the development of love of God and love of man; Catholic Christian understanding of sex- uality; and the values of physical and spiritual expression. In the area of male and female development, Mr. Landry said the sexes may be segregated during the showing of films, "because some kids might get embarrassed." The overview for the section on preparing for family is "to acquaint students with wholesome Catholic attitudes and values." Films will be shown, including showing the birth of a baby, to try to give students a knowledge of the beginnings of life. Mr. Himsl said it is hoped the program will be expanded to Grade 9 and Grade 7 in the near future and perhaps eventually throughout the grades, "It. was brought into the Grade 8 level first because it was felt, from the point of view of the children, that they were in the greatest need of this type of education." He added that student reaction to the program was essential in modifying the content and develop- ment of the program. "Students reaction is recorded both systematically and spon- taneously." Teachers note reactions daily to obtain a certain set of values which should be put across. He said parents will be contacted continuously throughout the dura- tion of the program and meetings held to keep them in tune with the program selections. Bible a 'chauvinist plot'? COYOTE head defends prostitutes CALGARY (CP) The Bi- ble quoting president of the Society for the Prevention of Sex Education in Schools said most prostitutes "will end up very, very mentally insane or commit suicide" but Margo St. James declined his offer of salvation and said "a large portion of your congregation are my customers." Ms. St. James, founder of COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired a San Fran- cisco based organization of hookers, told an overflow audience at the University of Calgary this week that the Bi- ble is "a chauvinist plot" against women. "It is hysterical rather than historical, with women at the root of all evil." Ms. St. James was to debate, at the invitation of the University students' union, with Det. Sgt. Ken Johnson, head of the Calgary police crime prevention unit, on whether prostitution should be legalized, but he declined the invitation after Police Chief Brian Sawyer said a policeman's duty is to "uphold the law rather than debate it." In Johnson's place, the students invited Frank Cot- tingham of Calgary, who told Ms. St. James that if a prostitute gives up her profes- sion and repents, she can be saved by "asking Jesus Christ to come into her life." Ms. St. James said most customers of hookers are white, middle-class, married, aged 35 and up. Most want oral sex because "they can't get it at home." She said she is not against religion but "if you don't want a religion it shouldn't be forc- ed on you." She said govern- ment "has no business in sex" and prostitution is only business transaction, "getting paid for a service rendered." It is untrue that prostitutes spread venereal diseases, she said. Only three per cent of prostitutes have VD because "professional women" know their bodies. "If you really were concern- ed about VD you'd quarantine high school kids." Ms. St. James said it is a myth that prostitution is link- ed to organized crime. It is another myth that prostitutes are frigid, lesbians and hate men. Most prostitutes who are drug addicts acquired the habit before becoming prostitutes, she said. COYOTE was founded on Mother's Day, 1973, to provide public education, a self-help gynecological clinic, housing, child care and legal aid. She said she started COYOTE "because I wanted prostitutes to have a voice we have been silent for too long." Mr. Cottingham said prostitution makes sex an ugly thing.

JUST ARRIVED IN TIME FOR THE ARMISTICE BALL LADIES' SILVER AND GOLD DRESSY SANDALS OPEN FRI. TIL Camm's Shoes 403-5th Street South Dear Ann: I am 30 years old and I have rheumatoid arthritis. By the time I learn- ed what rheumatoid arthritis is and what it can do to a per- son. I needed surgery. If facts about arthritis could reach the public, the pain and agony that changes the lives of the afflicted ones as well as their families could be greatly reduced. At least 20 million Americans have arthritis severe enough to require medical care. Arthritis cripples more people than all accidents combined. No form of arthritis should be treated at home without the guidance of a qualified physician. And please. Ann. tell your readers to steer clear of quacks. They net about 400 million dollars a year from people who are in such terri- ble pain, they are willing to try anything. I learned a lot from our local chapter of the Arthritis Foundation, but, unfor- tunately. I didn't get smart until it was too late. Will you please print my letter and add some facts of your own that will help educate the public? Thanks. Ann Mrs. JL Dear Mrs. J.: Thank vou for Safeway Is Pleased To Announce Courtesy Award Winner CHESTER GAL Store No. 251, Lethbridge CHESTER GAL 425-13th STREET NORTH Is one of 8 winners in the continuing Courtesy Contest in Southern Alberta and Cranbrook, B.C. Safeway is proud to have courteous employees as Company Representatives. MR. GAL WILL RECEIVE A COURTESY PIN AND A PRIZE reminding us that arthritis is this nation's No. 1 crippler. I am told that about 3M: million people are so badly disabled by this disease that they can- not work. Nearly as many peo- ple are unemployable because of arthritis as heart disease. Yet the federal government spends only 68 cents per year on the arthritis victim as com- pared with per year on the heart victim. Children, young adults, and people in their productive years are the ones hardest hit by the most disabling varieties of arthritis. Some of these can affect the heart, kidneys, blood vessels, cause blindness and even death. The best way to help in the fight against arthritis is to support the Arthritis Foun- dation. Generously. Dear Ann Landers: My mother is a nice lady, but she has a loud voice. Whenever I am out playing ball with the guys she yells "Henn-n-nnry" and honest, she could wake the dead. When I go to find out what she wants, she doesn't want anything. She just wants to know where I am. The guys laugh their heads off. I am 11 years old. What should I do? Laughed At Dear Laugh: Before you go nut to play with the guys tell your mother exactly where you are going and what you'll be doing then she won't have to veil for vou. Pot-pourri] Mrs M.
