Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor main artery, medically speaking, one finds difficult to get along without when it's cut, and Lethbridge drivers are having their own circulation problems due to the closure of the 9th St. bridge. The 13th St. artery to the northernmost part of the city is to be avoided like the plague if you expect to get anywhere before tomorrow. The Mayor Magrath artery can handle a large volume of traffic unless you want to make a left hand turn on 3rd Ave., and then you might not get home until next week. Take a tip from one who knows: drive six blocks out of your way if need be to drive north on Mayor Magrath Drive in order to get through that underpass. Left-hand-turns click by one at a time on a light change. Better time can be made by turning right off 3rd Ave., head south, turn right around the block, make a left hand turn at the Campbell Clinic and buzz straight on through. You'll leave all the lefties still sitting on 3rd Ave. clearing the cobwebs off the steering wheel. Of course the fastest is actually the longest route. That's the one around by the Lethbridge Brewery the overpass, under the bridge and back up 5th Ave. N., around the traffic circle and north up 9th St. It sounds ridiculous, but if nothing else it's less frustrating, easier on the fingernails tapping away on the steering wheel, and creates fewer wrinkles on your near-fevered brow. The added benefits of enjoying the view in the brewery gardens, and the autumn foliage in the riv-erbottom will make the trip worthwhile. You'll feel like a true commuter taking a leisurely jaunt through the country, to get home. Hopefully the bridgework will be completed before next Thursday when the Centre Village Mall opens or there will be gnashing of teeth until it does. The haze from the smoke fires in B.C. will pale compared with the blue drift caused by Lethbridge motorists, as they cope with the left hand turns on 2nd Ave. and 13th St. N. Additional lights on either 2nd or 3rd are going to be a must for the near future. Mind you, it took a pile of traffic to get the lights up on 19th Ave. and South Mayor Magrath Drive when College Mall opened, so tolerance, people, and take care. ? * ? Keep in mind the annual Police Ball Oct. 24 in the Exhibition Pavilion with Grant Ericksen and The Canadians supplying the music. Tickets available at your favorite downtown branch of the city police. Be nice to them when you drop in; they're working without a contract. And a smart-alecky football fan (male of course) says that most women are so uninformed about the "great and glorious" game of football that they think a quarterback is a refund on the ticket to the game ... bet Valerie wouldn't agree with that one either . . . and I don't know about the rest of the terminology of football but women sure know what a pass is. . . . Mercury Level In Hair Doubled In Six Years ANN ARBOR, Midi. (CP) - The average level of mercury found in hair samples from Canadians has doubled in the last six years, a University of Toronto professor reported Wednesday. Dr. Robert Jervis told about 300 specialists at an international conference on environmental mercury contamination that samples of hair taken in 1964 contained from one to three parts per million p.p.m., but by 1970 had gone up to six parts. The subjects were not exposed to fish foods, he said. Dr. Ernest Mastromatteo, director of the environmental health services for the Ontario department of health, said persons exposed to mercury-con- 16 GAMES $500 JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS.- 8 p.m. Says Bob Gall, Local Official Drug Abuse-People Problem By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer "Drug abuse is not a drug problem ... It is a people problem." So said Bob Gall, director of Lethbridge School services, during a discussion on "Drugs-Law - Patient" Friday as the annual Alberta Radiological Technicians convention opened in the city. Mr. Gall sadd that children who come to his attention in elementary school with parental or behavior problems usually show up again in junior high with at least experimentation in drugs. Drugs in the city, seem to be hitting the junior high students the hardest. There is a trend developing in the high schools, according to Mr. Gall of turning away from drugs now. Detective Frank Bathgate, another panel member, said that all pros and cons concerning marijuana are still not going to change the fact that it is illegal. Mr. G;all answered by saying that young people do not feel the fear of prisons and any of society's other deterrents. "Youths say do not fold, spindle or mutilate ... do not ask me to conform to a mold just because you conform to it," said Mr. Gall concerning the feelings of the current generation of young people. "Drag use is a simple symptom of youth challenging us (established society) in their cry for freedom,'' he added. Dr. Scott Angus, a local psychiatrist speaking on drug treatment, said mere was too restricted a view on what a taminated fish from Lake St. Clair had up to 125 p.p.m. of mercury in their hair. Dr. Jervis said samples of up to 440 kinds of foods showed most contained some traces of mercury while fruits and vegetables may contain between 20 to 30 parts per billion of mercury. Dr. Frank M. D'ltri of Michigan State University said there could be between 575,000 and 1.5 million gallons of mercury lost in Canada and the U.S. every year. He said mercury is used in the paint industry, on grain seeds, in dental preparations such as fillings and by pharmaceutical firms for antiseptic preparations and skin creams. In addition, he said there is an unknown amount of mercury in nature which may be transported to oceans, evaporated from both oceans and soil, and returned to earth in rain. STAY AWAY Warn your child against putting anything in his ear. FASHIONS EATON'S by Silhouettes of the 70's, fashions by Eaton's will be shown in South-minster Hall, Wednesday, October 7th, at 8:15 p.m. Be sure to see this parade of fashions for Fall, '70, sponsired by the Tuesday Evening Unit of Southminster United Church.

He said people abuse anything that has a psychological effect. Amphetamines were used all during the First World War by soldiers to survive in combat, and generations of medical students have used them to stay up all night studying, so youth discovering them now is not so shockingly new, stated Dr. Angus. "We tend to ignore facts in history that men have been abusing substances which do something to their minds for ages. Included are such things as coal gas, mushrooms, morning glory, cough medicines and scores more," added Dr. Angus. He said youths using drugs should not only be told it is illegal, but that they are, in reality, just guinea pigs in a long-term experiment. Dr. James McNally said the long - range effects drugs are having on our country are being watched even more closely by our neighboring count r i e s (such as Russia) than by our own politicians. In a question period , the panel agreed that children should be indoctrinated to the idea of drugs and alcohol just as they should be to sex from an early age. Youth should have it emphasized to them that status comes not only from using drugs but by many other means. While discussing law enforcement, it was pointed out that society has placed an awful burden on its police force concerning personal freedom. Det. Bathgate said although many people think they should have the individual freedom to do what they want with their own bodies, it does infringe on the rights of others when they lose control of drug habits. He said there is heroin (smack) in Lethbridge and it does become a public burden when society has to pay for the hospitalization, medical co s t s and psychiatrist fees when it becomes too much for the users to handle. Dr. Angus said lie recently saw a poster in England which pictured a young girl with a straight jacket in a small cell and the caption read: "LSD can take you places you never dreamed of." He said this message should strike home to many, both users and potential users. Mr. Gall concluded by saying that there are so many ways people can "turn on" besides taking drugs. "I get turned on just holding my baby son, and hope he will feel the same way with my companionship," he said. NEED A BELTING THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) - Mothers who drive family cars are risking the lives of hundreds of children "because they will not give their youngsters a belting," says a motoring doctor. Dr. Keith Jolles of England said the children should be seat-belted safely into the rear seats but instead mothers allow them to stand in the front seats with their noses pressed against the windshield. ll Canadian Indian Princess-Laverna McMaster Indian Princess In City Miss Laverna McMaster, 18, from the Alberta Blackfoot Reserve was crowned June 26 as Alberta Princess and again from among 12 contestants in Ottawa as the Canadian Indian Princess by Prince Charles when he was on tour in Canada. Miss McMaster is in Lethbridge for the All-Indian Rodeo being held Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Exhibition Pavilion. The only reason she entered the contests she said was that  the housing committee on the reserve asked her and she 1 agreed. "But they only gave me one day to prepare a whole i speech," she said. "I spoke on how the whole Indian population can't be judged by the actions of one individual." The Canadian competition lasted for five days and in- - eluded attending receptions � with the Royal Family who were in Canada then, fashion shows, talent exhibitions and general judging on personality, - posse and a speech presenta-> tion. She expressed her enthusiasm for the Calgary Stampede which she wouldn't miss for anything. But she said although she liked the Klondike Days, it didn't have the rodeo which is her favorite. This year will be spent in travelling throughout Canada to various celebrations where she will reign as Canadian Indian Princess. Next year she plans to enter the Lethbridge Community College and take the recreation course because she was very active in all school sports and enjoys it immensely. Female Employees Attend Charm School Over 200 women in Lethbridge are attending a condensed charm course in preparation for employment in the new Simpsons Sears Department Store which opens Thursday in the Centre Village Shopping Centre. The classes consist of 2% hours in groups of approximately 30 women who learn good grooming, charm and fashion under the direction of Lucy Seto who has been working with Simpsons Sears for five years as national fashion co-ordinator. Besides travelling from coast to coast instructing classes for female employees, Miss Seto also organizes monthly fashion news for the stores, helps present new season fashions and co-ordinates the lines and colors in a store's fashion. The class covers topics such as personal hygiene; make-up; hair, hand and foot care; wardrobe and accessory selection; deportment; voice and charm. Every female employee in the store from managers to clerks to custodians are included in the course. Miss Seto said the training is successful because of its individual involvement. In the make- up section, the instructor demonstrates on one model, then all participate with small make-up kits-. Each person is handled separately and advised as to which of their features should be highlighted and which camouflaged whether in make-up, dress or hair styles. "We are,not offering a $100 course," said Miss Seto. "We give the basics and leave them with many ideas to experiment with." By offering these classes, the workers are more conscious of themselves and the image they are forming for the store. A relaxed and natural look is the one strived for. "It is unnecessary to re-apply make-up to freshen up," said the makeup consultant. "By learning cer- tain tips, one can be relaxed and fresh looking all day." The cost of a wardrobe does not necessarily determine how well it looks. What counts is how it is utilized with suitability and accessories. Also the simplest hair-style can be the most suitable because it doesn't look over-done and is not a worry for the employee.
