Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE UTHBRIDGE HERAtD Friday, NeVBtnber 13, 1970 Addresses hospital auxiliaries tor aged department, says LeBaron By CIIWSTINE MII1I. Herald Stuff Writer Mrs. W. J. MncDonald. presi- dent of the Alberta 'Hos p it a 1 Auxiliaries Association said there is a rewarding reeling of achievement gained by giving unselfish devotion to hospital patients and eomniunity. She was addressing 100 dele- gates attending the provincial hospital auxiliaries convention DON LeBARON being hold in Lethbridge this weekend at (He Marquis Hotel. The main concern of auxiliary members should be to the needs of patients as human beings who require love and a sense of security. "Who can say they will never need similar she said. "Tire hospital should be much more than just an as- sociation, building and pro- gram." Membership in the provincial auxiliary association has fluc- tuated around members with a budget of This total represents per aux- iliary. Mrs. MacDonald said that during her first year in office she had travelled extensively throughout the province, visit- ing auxiliaries, as well as the national convent i o n, Ontario hospital convention and region- al meetings. Don M. LeBaron. administra- tor for Green Acres Foundation was the featured speaker Thurs- day morning and discussed the rights of age. He said the num- ber of elderly people in the U.S. is increasing times as fast as the general population. "He said that people don't hear about the problems of the aged because is a youth- oriented society. But youth and the aged have much in common such as: drug useage, obsession with lime, body in process of change, suicide tendencies, un- employment, uncertain thoughts early marriages and many more. "We may need a department for the aged, not just for said Mr. LeBaron. "If this tech- nical society is responsible for creating this new class of the retired it is also responsible to maintain a certain standard of living for them." Mr. LeBaron stated cases wlisre many aged are bitter be- cause their sayings had been devoured by spiralling property I tax and cost of living. Others, who were poor to begin with, are living only on pension which puts them below the pov- erty level. Tho aged have four main areas.of conflict which are: economic, psychological, mari- tal and leisure time. They are separated from the productive world when they retire and feel useless in a work-oriented world, world. For the iirst time in 40 years the home becomes the centre of attention for those who have retired. "As one woman put it, 'I married my husband for bet- ter or for worse but not for lunch every d a said Mr. LeBaron. Too few funds available for undeveloped countries There are only seven dollars for each person per year to be used for medical care in New Guinea, as compared to Can- ada, which allots to per year tor each person, said Dr. G. Driedger as he address- ed the 100 delegates attending the Alberta Hospital Auxiliaries convention, currently being held in Lethbridge. Dr. Driedger, who has Just returned to Lethbridge in June after spending a year in New Guinea, was discussing medical care in developing countries.

However, since 'all work, and no play' would invariably injure our over 'schooled' (not over-'educated') little minds, we do have at Cath- olic Central, a pleasant break from the monotony of routine: our weekly assemblies, every Friday morning at 11. Some of you may remember Ely comments on our new house system. Whatever comments I did write (or did not as in this instance) have been, to a certain degree, proven wrong. Both houses 'two' and 'four' have presented hilarious enter- tainments for the students 'viewing pleasure.' The first of these was, of course, during an assembly. It was a short, though very 'pumry' play. Hmjse 'four' not to be out- done, sponsored a 'Miss Uni- verse Contest' open only to members of the male 45 R.P.M. trying to as their female counterparts. Everything stum- bled along fairly smoothly (in heels, bathing suits and gowns) until the talent show. The fourth finalist to perform really 'went to pieces' and though 'she' didn't entirely lose her head, 'she' did lose her hat, at any rate. Apparently, this house is com- pletely 'hung on this beauty thing. They're also sponsoring our Miss CCHS contest this sveek. This not only includes modelling but each contes- tant must compete in ttie talent category as well: this event should be a lot of fun for every- we may find a partial answer to that timeless ques- tion 'Do men really prefer blondest' (Prefer them to The judges' choice (decision is final) will be crowned at our dance and carnival Friday night.

TIME TO KlU-Thc Band ing countries is not the bad cli- mate with its rare diseases or lack of drags, but the povertv and ignorance of the people, he said. In many of the languages in New Guinea, there is not even a word in the vocabulary for washing. They just rub on piss' grease because they think it smells better, said Dr. Dried- ger. There is one doctor for every 700 people in Canada but in Now Guinea there is only one doctor for every Because of this factor, the main ap- proach has to be teaching pei sonal hygiene for the preven- tion of disease rather than try- ing to cure them all. For instance, tropical ulcers are huge sores which develop strictly because wounds have not been cleaned and bandaged properly. Most admissions in hospitals or deaths are because of com- mon diseases from which very few die in Canada. It is not tr-p rare or incurable diseases which are causing the problems. Medical teams are requested to leave native customs alone, unless they are harmful but if certain customs are beneficial, they should be encourjged. "One ridiculous custom was sell amputation of fingers dur- ing times of said Dr Dretdger. It was not uncommon for a man tn have all the fin- gers missing from one hand. It was finally outlawed and the people stopped, instead of pay- ing a fine. A disease commonly known as the laughing death, used to kill 5 to 10 per cent of the popu- lation. Its transmission was fi nally traced to the practice of cannibalism. Family planning is also a ma- jor problem. At one time tha constant warfare, diseases, in- fanticides and abortions kept fee population under control. Tim has all changed and drastic measures are needed, said Dr. Driedger.

If the aged are prepared for the amount of leisure time they have, they will be very hnppy. Although retirement should be an opening up and not a clos- ing down, many develop bore- dom which is any country's most costlv disease. There has a change in thinking over the past 10 years. Lodges, which were once thought of as a shameful place lo go and die when you had no where else, are now looked at with pride, respect asd happi- ness, said Mr. LeBaron, Alberta is very lucky to have 70 lodges, with two highrise apartments for aged being built hi Calgary and Edmonton, he said. Room and board is all pro- vided for per month which is something unheard of in many other areas, "I get appli- cations for entrance to Letli- bridge homes from all over Canada and the he con- cluded.
