Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI UTHBRIDOE HERALD Thursday, Octob.r 1, .For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor TPOOTBALL. The very word strikes terror into the heart of every female television viewer. Actual- ly there's good reason to watch football if you know what to look for. Football isn't just a sport; it's drama, comedy suspense. As long as the male members of the family don't mind you chuckling or grimacing at odd mo- ments, try a game out this weekend and take a good look at how the game is played. Football players work very hard for their money. Where else can you see 12 grown men do three hour's work just to run a pig's bladder up and down a muddy field? Piit them out on the back forty, they'd all be dirt IJOOT and we'd c'all them western farmers. In the U.S., they only use 11 men to do the same job, or maybe they don't have that many men to spare what with the Vietnam war and all. Canada can spare 12 since she's well on her way out of the defence business anyway. There's drama in football, too. Will the big guy on the bottom of the pile live to see another goal post after the pounds of pad- ded flesh rises from his spinal cord? Will the backfield be in motion at a crucial mo- ment? Will the football really .hit that little crosspiece on top? Will Little Orphan Annie be reunited with Daddy Warbucks.? Stay tuned for another exciting episode. The female viewer, and those as yet uninitiated to the joys of football, may be puzzled over one or two customs of the game. For instance. There is a quarterback, a halfback and a fullback. As would be expected, these men are named in relation to their size. Why then' is the foot- ball given so often to the quarterback orithe smaller player? What seems to happen is that the little guy has the ball which leaves all those big guys to trample all over him trying to get it. Why don't they just give it to the big guy to begin with? Let him get smashed up a bit for a change. The novice might also wonder why the rules are set up to make things so difficult. When one team loses possession of the ball, it isn't just handed over to the opposition, it's kicked at them. It seems like a rather childish thing to do, be- cause the other team just catches it and runs it back anyway The funny part is the way they keep getting into a huddle to 'talk things over. You'd think after all those practices and studying plays and rules and reg- ulations about sleep and healthy activities, they wouldn't need to do planning right in the middle of the game. All in all it's quite a game, that football. I just wish they'd stop congratulating each other by those little pats on the rear end.

Peter Palmer, school psychol- ogist, and Mrs. Jean Paskuski, reading consultant, were addressing a meeting of the Foster Parents Association Wednesday. Mr. Palmer recommended a system of conferences between parent, child and teacher for better communication. He said closer contact with the teacher is "a that parents must feel free to ask both teacher and principal about their child's progress and problems. He stressed the person-cen- tred approach to both learning and social structures. The per- son-centred adult gives love with no strings attached, shows affection, uses physical touch, and thinks of the child's feel- ings rather than his accomplish- ments. He discusses how the child felt about things at school, how his day was with his friends rather than "what did you do at school Three types of troubled par- ents were described by Mr. Palmer: the spanking parent, the do-nothing parent and the indifferent parent. The spanking parent uses physical means, verbal attack, denies a child things, or may adopt an icy attitude toward the child. These attitudes may also, aded Mr. Palmer apply to teachers. The do-nothing parent says "I do not know what I'm going to do with this child." The child can't predict what wit happen to him, he has no boun- daries set and no limits, unti' society lowers the boom on him. The indifferent parent loves his child but often resorts to gift-giving, and cannot be per- sonally involved with the child The role of the school coun- sellor was discussed by Mr. Palmer. He said parents some- times need to be educated to the role of the counsellor as an added communicant with their child. There are no school counsel lors as yet in the elementary schools, but Mr. Palmer said it could happen if requests were made for them. School counsellors are avail- able in both junior and senior high schools in Lethbridge. Heading is the first major educational concern of the school and emotions are often blamed for the child's failure to read, said Mrs. Jean Pasku- ski to foster parents, but the two may be so intertwined it. is difficult to tell which is causing the other. The child may be emotional- ly disturbed but may not have reading problems. Repeated failure may cause emotional difficulties. There are three reasons for failure for a child to read. She said 1. the physical one of hear- ing or eyesight; 2. the educa- tional, and 3. the emotional. The child may be showing negative response to reading situatiots connected with read- ing; pressure from parents or teachers, or jealousy of other children who are good readers The child who has a reading problem is usually sensitive to opinions or ideas of others. She said that knowing that there is a reading problem doesn't "tell us what we can do or him." Using the person-centred ap- jroaeh, the parent-child rela- ionship must include mutual respect. In describing this relationship "free- 'firm- FOR FREE ESTIMATES CALL Hamilton's Floor Coverings LTD. 909 3rd AVE. S.

"We have our own guideposts and must make an honest eval- uation." The child needs "truth- ful treatment but also needs to make his own decisions and then suffer the consequences thereof." -In advising parents to go to the school Mrs. PackusH said that an objective rather than emotional approach is recom- mended for the parent. "Listen to a child, really lis- she said. "Give him all your attention when he's talking to you, don't divide your time between him and something else, or shoo him away with "in just a minute, I'm busy." Mrs. Paskuski told parents she did not approve of parents discussing a child with a teach- er without the child's presence. Reading to a child, setting an example to the child, by making reading a meaningful part of the home is important in helping a child to read. Word games, newspapers, magazines all assist a child in becoming familiarized with let- ters and combinations of let- ters. "Even if a child reads noth- ing but-comics, it helps him to branch out into other reading." Mrs. Paskuski showed trans- parencies using a new alphabet which helped parents to see how difficult it is for a young child to remember group.1; of new words. She said a reading problem can also occur with the early reader who is riot given a con- tinual challenge. "It's a teach- er's professional responsibility to provide a child in Grade -1 with reading material who may be reading on a Grade 3 level." J- am Women Victorious In U.S. Air Force WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Air Force, conceding some of its policies are out of line with "the recent emphasis on women's has given women another victory in their battle for equal treatment in the military; Faced with a lawsuit charging sex discrimination, the air force Tuesday tossed aside its long- standing policy of preventing women with children from re- maining in the service. The old regulations, said Lt- Gen. A. J. Russell, are "not considered to be in consonance with the recent emphasis on women's rights nor do they eon- form with a proposed Pentagon policy on equal rights for all defence department employ- ees." The action came a day after Capt. Tommie Sue Smith, a 35- year-old divorcee from Johnson City, Tenn., sued the air force, charging that regulations do not apply to men and therefore vio- late her constitutional rights. Mrs. a lawyer and one of seven women judge advo- cates in the air for-e, said the regulations would have forced her to choose between her eight-year-old son and her air force career. RIGHTS VIOLATED In a similar suit a month ago, a navy woman charged that ef- orts to dismiss her because of erminated pregnancy was based on a double sexual stand- ard and violated her constitu- tional rights. Seaman Anna Flares, 23, who s stationed at Pensacola, Fla., complained that men in the armed services are not sub- ed to the same moral re- strictions as women and that such a distinction is discrimina- tory. The navy subsequently permitted her to remain in the service. Mrs. Smith, divorced six years ago, said she was told by :he air force she would not be NEVER TOO OLD TO MARRY-Mrs. Annie Atterton, 76 and Henry Meyers, 79, were married Wednesday by Rev. A. King in Green. Acres Senior Citizens Lodge where they both reside. The romance began when the couple walked home together from card parries and progressed until the happy day.
