Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 THS IHTMBRIDOe HEBAIB November 70, 1770 em Parking may be rnvM'iiling a problem lo motorists shopping downtown, but it's the after hours crowd which is creating headaches (or managers of Hie periphery parking One in at the L- Mart store on Mayor Magrath Drive is littered each with with glass and empty food contain- ers. Alike Vasclcuak, store man- ager said that beer, wine and whiskey bottles are picked up by Ills' staff each Monday, as well as chicken bones and food containers. He said motorists, mostly youthful ones, often park their cars at the lot on the weekend, cat, drink, and litter. Cold weather dampens parking en- thusiasm only briefly. Several years ago the same lypu (if problem existed In the parking lot of the Campbell Clinic. A spokesman for (he clinic said the situation is bet- ter now than it was when a grocery carl was filled several times with bottles taken from the roof of the (.'Unit'. City police chief, James Car- penter said that' the posting of a sign informing motorists that persons parking in an unauth orizcd zone will have their cars towccl ivw.ty will be enforced on j the complaint of the owner. Drinking alcoholic beverages on the parking lot is also an offence since liquor m a y be consumed only at a private residence, without a special permit. Littering is a more difficult infraction of the law to enforce since the violator must be caught in the act. By MARLEiVE COOKSHAW Winston Churchill High School r'OMMUNICA'nON seems to be the current "in thing" locally, but I'm sure it's been a major concern of parents and children for a long time. 1 recently attended the Com- munications Workshop spon- sored by the Canadian Mental Health Association, and was really impressed by the number of people concerned with the lack of effective communica- tion in their own private lives. 1 was even more impressed by the fact that they quite openly admitted it. People participating in the discussions their ages varied from about eight to eighty were, in most cases, completely {rank about their problems and hang-ups and the other mem- bers eagerly supplied sympathy a.nd concern, and expressed a genuine desire to help. You could just feel the ten- sions being released as people talked a mile a minute; and it was good to have other people share your problems. Maybe even more important, it made you feel good to think perhaps you were helping someone else by dialing theirs. A lot of people were really concerned with the fact that they could talk so easily with members of the other genera- tion in such 3. situation, but found it so difficult at home. The general opinion was that !lie home situation was so emo- tional that it was hard for the parent to react calmly and logi- cally to his child's activities and opinions, and vice versa. But it was also agreed that it was deinitely not impossible. The main step towards this was to accept your parent or child as an individual with individual interests and standards, and respect his rights and respon- sibilities as such. f If noise and mouth movement is of any significance, the com- munication's great at Church- ill. There's a steady buzz all over, no matter which room you stick your head into. Churchill recently presented their first annual Drama Night a collection of three short plays which was produced by Mrs, Ellyn Mells, drama direc- tor. A lot of talent and hard work was evident, and it was certainly an enjoyable and en- tertaining way to spend an eve- ning. If you do enjoy our school productions, don't miss our sec- and annual Band Concert, being held on Tuesday, December 15. Another "don't miss" our girls' volleyball team, the Grif- fins, of whom we are so proud, will participate in an interpro- vincial invitational tournament tomorrow in Medicine Hat. If vou can possibly make it, get out and give them your support. On the 28, both our girls' and boys' teams will battle their way through the Southwest Zone playoff in Fort Macleod, We wish them both the very test oi tack. On Friday, November 27, at our Sadie Hawkins' Dance, we present "The great band from Washington. This group recently toured with Jose Feliciano and is presently making a circuit of western Canada and the States. It is going to be a big dance, so come and bring your favorite guy! This was the "scene of the crime" this eek at the L-Marf parking lot after carsless motorists had their fun. Liberalization of abortion better mental health, savs MD EDMONTON (CP) Lib- eralization of abortion laws would result in fewer unwanted pregnancies, happier citizens and a better state of mental health, an Edmonton obstetri- cian and gynecologist said here. "This would also abolish the horrors and dangers o[ back- Guide to toys issued by govt. OTTAWA (CP) Just in tune [or Christmas, Consumer Af- fairs Minister Ron Basford an- nounced Thursday publication of a guide to toy buying. The joint production of Uhe Canadian Toy Testing Council and the consumer affairs de- partment, it is called Toys: A Guide for Consumers, Mr. Basford told a news con- ference the booklet is designed as a general guide to enable consumers to choose wisely from the many toys on ttte mar- ket. It contains a list of more than 600 toys approved by the toy council with suggested age groups, prices, descriptions and manufacturer's catalogue num- bers. Names and addresses o{ manufacturers are also prov- ided. The council, an Ottawa-based volunteer group, chose a repre- sentative selection of top toys from the manufacturer's toy fair in Montreal. Donated by the manufacturers, the toys were then put into private homes and nursery schools for an extended period of rigorous use-testing. A report is written on each toy and only toys that satisfy the council's standards are ap- proved. Mrs. Bert Lawrence, chair- man of the council, said "we look for toys we think are good and that will help a child's growth. Gimmicky tilings we tend to avoid." Asked whether the booklet ap- proves war toys, Mrs. Inge Hoffman, the editor, said: "We don't test or list any guns. We feel parents should buy more constructive toys than destructive." The booklet lists seven basic principles as guides to buying toys: Age snd ability of the child should be considered; dur- ability is an important factor; toys should stimulate lie imagi- nation; they should be aestheti- cally pleasing; they should func- tion as intended; and they should be related in function to other toys children have.

A. Douglas Ringrose, told a meeting of the Professional Engineers' Wives club of Edmonton. Abortion should be brought down to the doctor-patient level, he said. With methods for abortion becoming increasingly safe and efficient, more could be done on an out-patient ba- sis with less time and money spent by both patient and doc- tor. But abortion is a rear-guard method of population control, Dr. Ringrose said.

I mean thai gentle, soft-spoken matronly woman with the silver-gray luir raid glasses? She wove floral print house diesses and sensible shoes. Her grandchildren loved to sit at her teet and listen to stories about "the olden days." I had two wonderful grandmothers. They were im- portant part of my growing-up years. My own children Fm sorry to say, are less fortunate. One Grandma lives a thou- sand mites away. The other Grandma is within 20 minutes by car but we rarely see her. The in-tovm Grandma is a. platinum blonde. She wears fake eyelashes, 11 pounds of jewelry, no bra, cigaret holder the whole bit. Her life re- volves around the beauty shop, her exercise class snd shop- ping for clothes. Her main goal in life is to look 10 yean younger than her sister who is two years older. The children have been asked to call her by her first name. Half the time she can't remember theirs. Grandma is unquestionably a knockout for 58 but I feel, somehow, my children are being cheated. What values will they learn from their grandmother? Bow will they remember her? Sad Natalie DEAR SAD: Your children will remember Grandma as a platinum blonde, with fake eyelashes, H pounds ol jewelry, no bra and a cigaret holder. What values will they learn from her? None. She isn't around enough. And from your description, it's just as well. DEAB ANN LANDERS: Bill, age 40, was my steady fellow for three years. Ho received an attractive job offer to another city and asked me to go with him. Had he suggested marriage I would have said yes, but he did not. That was two years ago. Bill is back in town, vague about why the job didn't work out and full of stories about "crooked" boss and 'underhanded people." He is argumenta- tive and blows up if he doesn't get hb way. Last night said I was trying to get rid of him because I have new love. This is absurd. Perhaps I should tell you Bill com- plains about severe headaches but refuses to see a doctor. Frankly, I want to end our relationship but I'm afraid of what he might do to mo. Help me, please. BEAR T.: Tell BUI it's over. If lie bolters you, get t peace bond. As a final gesture of friendship, urge him to ses a doctor about a thorough neurological examination. His er- ratic behavior suggests personality changes for which there might be as organic reason.
