Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 l.ETHBWDGE HERALD Monday, November 18, 1974 The Herald Family French school founded after year wait TORONTO (CP) Ecole Francaise. the first elemen- tary school here for French- speaking students operated by a public school board, opened this fall alter a 107-year wait since Confederation. The 56 French-speaking pupils trom junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 are taught soleh in French and have separate times for recess from the English students of Norman Ingram Public School, with which they share facilities In Metro Toronto, the sepa- rate school board has operated a French school Please Attendl The of the BORDER p.m. Monday, Nov. 18 Civic Centre since the 1880s and has five this school term. The decision to open the school was made in June by the North York board of education which also runs a French-language high school. One parent. Marc Chalifour. said he'wants his four-year- old Nicholas to receive a "good, solid, 100 per cent basic French education Mr Chalifour will not send .Nicholas, who attends junior kindergarten to a separate school I can teach my son a better religion than the nuns and I want him to learn a good French." he said. "At Ste. Madeleine, (the French-lan- guage school in the area) the children speak French and English in the playground." Children have a right to at- tend if one parent speaks French as a mother tongue. For others, an admission com- mittee tests their fluency.

Algeria and England Cancer Society helping women Masectomy unit de-traumatizing operations By KATH1E MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer A masectomy need not be a psychological or physical trauma To help women cope with breast cancer surgery, a piograrn has Deen developed in the Lethbridge area under the auspices of the Canadian Cancer Society. Lois McKillop. co-ordinator of the "self-help" program, says, "women are finally beginning to use the self-test for breast cancer, but it took women at the top to get it across." She refers to Betty Ford's recent operation as an example of a development which drew attention to masectomies The program consists of six women volunteers, all of whom have had masectomies, who visit women while they're still in the hospital. She says it's best to have volunteers who have ex- perienced the operation in order to provide patients with a "wonderful example in liv- ing color A board member of the local division of the Canadian Cancer Society, she says it lias been her goal for a number of years to initiate a masectomy program in Lethbridge. "Volunteers have been making visits to the hospital since July, but only in the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital as yet." Mrs. McKillop. head nurse of pediatrics at LMH, says a key factor of the program is the physicians', as well as the nurses', decision whether the patients may receive this visitor "So far we've had no refusals." The volunteers, trained by Pat Webber, co-ordinator of the masectomy program in Calgary, are told specifically not to answer any medical questions. When making their visits, the volunteers teach the patient exercises to build up their arm muscles and pre- sent them with a kit. The kits made by the Women's Aux- iliary to the Municipal Hospital, contain a ball and piece of rope for exercising, a breast prosthesis and a booklet entitled Reach for Recovery. Mrs. McKillop says the volunteers usually visit a patient only once "But if any problems should arise after the patient goes home in regard to the proper fitting of clothes, information on per- manent breast prostheses or just moral support, the volunteers can be contacted through the Canadian Cancer Society Office. Bill collector teaches budgeting NEW HAVEN, Conn (AP) The bill collector can win a debtor's appreciation by giv- ing a simple lesson in budgeting, says one of the top women in the business. "The average debtor really wants to pay bills, but he mis- manages Helyn Lap- ides said in an interview. "The average person in debt is happy if someone helps him out of it. I've encountered very few people who have been really obnoxious." Mrs Lapides, who operates a collection agency with her husband Edward, said she instructs her staff to help deb- tors set up a schedule for pay- ing their bills 'If you can teach a child to play the piano, you can teach a person to pay a she ex- plained. "It's the same psychology. You've got to make them like it." Reason usually prevails. "You tell them the doctor should be paid because they may need him next month." Mrs. Lapides recently became the first woman to win the Key Award of the American Collectors Association, an international organization of bill-col- lectors A woman seems to have special assets for the job, "be- ing more curious by nature, more disarming and much more she said.

CARE is launching fund-raising appeal OTTAWA A massive CARE FOOD CRUSADE has been launched appealing to Canadians to extend a lifeline to needy children around the world where hunger and malnutrition are the biggest cnpplers and killers of the young In announcing the allocation of 8300.000 of food aid to India and Pakistan and in self-help programs in Africa. Asia and Latin America. Vladimir Kavan. Chairman of CARE Canada said "self help projects stress food production in most countries and include water conserva- tion in Guatemala, rice production in Columbia, rural development and road con- struction in Lesotho, and agricultural credit in Belize." "Droughts and floods in many areas, have cut down the already inadequate food supplies, and worsened the deadly malnutrition toll. "Mr. Kavan said, "and the children are hardest hit. An es- timated 15 million children under the age of five die each year of malnutrition and con- sequent infection." CARE feeding programs supply nourishment to enable children to grow into healthy, trainable and productive adults Contributions may be sent to CARE Canada. Dept. 4. 63 Sparks. Ottawa. Ontario KIP 5A6 Lung cancer major killer of women NEW YORK (AP) Lung cancer has become the third major cancer killer of ameri- can women, the American Cancer Society says, under- scoring the risks of smoking. Uterine cancer, formerly the third-highest cancer killer of women, has dropped to fourth place, the society said, in releasing its facts and figures, 1975. The drop was largely a result of the com- mon use of the Pap smear test which detects the disease early "However, the message about quitting smoking hasn't been as popular with the result that in 1975, more women are expected to lose their lives to lung cancer than in the society said. The total number of women pro- jected to die from the disease next year is "Smoking habits are estab- lished in-the teens, and in the great majority of cases, teen- age girl smokers will become adult women smokers'. Teen- age girls who never smoked to the extent teen-age boys did, have now caught up." Lung cancer remains the leading cancer killer among men with a mortality rate that has increased 20 times in 45 years Breast cancer remains the leading cancer killer of women; cancer of the colon and rectum, the second- highest cancer cause of death for both sexes, the society said.
