Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta MISS PLAYERS Nicole Morin is Miss Players this year, Imperial Tobacco's representative at the major motor sports events the firm sponsors in Canada. She stands five feet eight inches ond her measurements are 38-23- 35Vi. It was her figure, her reputation as an actress and her ability to sell herself to the tobacco company, not necessarily in that order, which landed her the job for 1971. Miss Morin is shown before the start of the Players Grand Prix with George Eaton, left, and Mario Andretti. Actress takes over from five girls EDMONTON' (CPi Re- gardless of what's being talked about in a room filled with people and their ciga- rette smoke, conversation usually fades to whisners of appreciation when X i c o 1 e Morin makes an entrance. At 24, the tall brunette is something to behold, espe- cially clad in one of those clinging skinny-rib sweaters and hot pants, high boots and a long vest-like garment lhat gives brief glimpses of her re- markable figure. Nicole is Miss Players this year, Imperial Tobacco's rep- resentative at the major motor sports events the firm sponsors in Canada. She stands five feet eight inches and weighs 120 pounds; her measurements are 38-23- 35V4_a spectacular package used to good effect to dazzle even the most world-weary newspaper man and to dress up public functions. It was her figure, her repu- tation as an actress and li- ability to sell herself to the tobacco company, not neces- sarily in that order, which landed her the job for "They usually used maybe five Miss Players a season at the various races across Can- she said during a recent visit to Edmonton's Interna- tional Speedway. "I went to them and told them I wanted to be the only Miss Players in the country and I guess they liked me. "Their first reaction was to laugh. They just kind of smiled when I said I had de- cided to be the only one this year. But here I am." That was two weeks before the racing season and it didn t take her long to convince the firm she was the right one for the job although she had never been involved in motor sports before. "I worked very hard in show business, so about rac- ing I knew nest to nothing, could see the races and work? "But now I am terribly in- terested. I want, to know all I can about the drivers because they are such fascinating characters. They're a very special kind of person.'' Behind the glamorous eyed facade, however, Nicole Morin is a resourceful woman with definite goals. Although she lives in lo- ronto to he close to theatre and television, she originally is from Lac Noir.

The film played on her fig- ure and although she dresse to show it off, "I don't try lo turn people on; I'm just healthy." Other roles include one as a brain-injured mute in a film called Foxy Lady and she ex- pects this to be a challenge to her acting ability. She has done a couple of nude scenes "because I was very shy and wanted to break this'" and so "people wouldn't more about ho I'm built." As soon as filming finished, "the jacket went right back on." How does her fairly con scrvative family react to al! this? "My father thinks all I do is right'because I sincerely feel he has given me the right val ucs.

I refer to the folks who must spend the rest of their lives in wheelchairs. There are so many places we can't go because the door- frames are too narrow to accommodate a wheelchair es- pecially the door to the bathroom. We who are members of the wheelchair brigade know the theatres, restaurants, stores, meeting places and yes, even private homes, which must be avoided for this reason. I have a wonderful husband who can lift me from my chair and carry me through a door, but lie cannot go into a ladies' restroom. Will you print this letter, please? Perhaps some business establishments who are planning on remodelling or rebuilding will see it and take heed. Also architects and home builders could profit from this information. My thanks and best wishes from thousands who arc Along. DEAR THOUSANDS: Here's your letter and my thanks. It's amazing how little thought was given to people in wheel- chairs until Franklin D. Roosevelt became president. Many buildings installed ramps and widened doorways for the Chief. I hope your letter will serve as a reminder that the wheelchair population should not be forgotten. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a teen-ager who is having trouble with my folks on account of drugs. 1 am not on anything. When I started high school two years ago I made up" my mind not to get messed up with any of that stuff. I saw too many cats in trouble because they were chicken and said "yes" instead of "no." My parents read everything they can get their hands on about teen-agers and drugs. Every time I turn around they question me. Last night: "Your pupils are dilated. What have you been Last week: "What are those marks on your (They were mosquito bites.) Tonight: "You look very happy. Are you high on Please, Ann, tell parents not to do this to their kids. It makes them feel not trusted and it's a drag to be on the defen- sive all the time. Honor Bright DEAR H. B.: You told them and better than I could have. Thanks a lot.

Recent post secondary educa- tion trends show the mounting importance of the community college says Werner Schmidt the recently appointed academic vice president at Lethbridge Community College. The emphasis is swinging to- wards the community college because of a slu'ft of student priorities. These include the job market trend and saleability of an in- dividual's skills, he said. Mr. Schmidt predicted rapid growth for community colleges enrolments in the future while university growth will remain almost static. However he warned that com- munity colleges should not ex- ceed the size where a student cannot directly relate with tho college. Community colleges are gear- ed to meet the broad spectrum of community needs, he said. Included in these needs are vocational training, adult Inter- est courses and university Iransferability. Among one of the major changes he hopes to introduce is to have students become in- volved with specific problems within the community. He would like to see students re-search and work with city businessmen to solve prob- lems. In order to do this Mr. Sch- midt admitted the businessman would first have to endorse the concept. for?
