Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, October 14, 1978 ___ MOVING DAY HEADACHES Moving day is always a headache but when you take yor house with you ouch! House owner Frank Wetmereof of Marblehead, Mass., turned his problems over to a professional mover when he decided to move a house from an urban renewal area. Everything ran smoothly until they turned corner onto'a narrow street. The street was only a few inches wider than the house but after two hours of manoeuvring, it was squeezed throu gh wtih only a' minor paint scrape. Arthritics Walking Again TORONTO (CP) Thanks to Dr. Charles M. Godfrey and his rehabilitation staff at Wellesley Hospital here, arthritics 'who once were wheelchair cases are walking again. Dr. Godfrey and his staff 'are engaged in constant research into the development of foot- wear that can help persons, especially those with severe ar- thritic disabilities, to walk with comfort. In his office, Dr. Godfrey has an apparatus consisting of a plate-glass platform with ajnir- ror placed at an 'angle so that he can see the soles of a person standing on the plate glass. This allows him to determine how weight is distributed on the feet. In most people, weight or pressure is on three points. But people with arthritis have ab- normal types of pressures, and one of the objects of research is to find a better way of distribu- ting this pressure. Show us.

BRIDGE TOWN HOUSE MOTEL 12 Noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES Arthritics often complain about leather shoes being heavy, so Dr. Godfrey and his staff have been trying to de- velop a shoe that is both light and serviceable. One recent development is an all-plastic shoe that weighs about six ounces. SOLE IS THICK For feet that are painful and deformed, the Wellesley sandal has been developed'with a sole made of a plastic material about an inch thick. The patient stands on the heated plastic to form his own sole. The sole is trimmed from the sheet of plastic, and leather sole and soft leather heel and toestraps are added. For outside wetr, a soft leather upper may be added for protection. Dr. Godfrey is always looking for new ideas. On "a recent trip to England he discovered plastic wool-like material "that looks like mesh" and is being used under rugs. "Mesh would he said thoughtfully.

(AP) Barefoot and clutching wild flowers, Jeff Stewart's friends came to bury him, man-child of a drug gener- ation, son of a Methodist minis- ter. For days, weeks, even a year before he died, some of these same had come to Jeff to share marijuana, heroin, barbiturates and LSD. Jeffrey Ross Stewart, .17, a star baseball player, died of an overdose of barbiturates in a clubhouse he helped build.' The tragedy in the Hudson River Valley village, population 300, and a picture of small-town U.S.A., may well reflect what Is happening in communities all across the country. Jeff's parents knew their son had a drug problem, .but they didn't know how to cope with it the extent to which he was involved surpassed even heir wildest fears. The last year of Jeff's life was a time of deep torment for his parents. He became thin, couldn't sleep nights and had little interest in anything. Like thousands of other parents, Rev. and Mrs. Harold Sewart ago- nized over their inability to un- derstand why their child turned to drugs. WANTED TO STOP "Yes, we knew he was taking drugs, but we didn't know what to Stewart said. "Last summer he was in a hospital's psychiatric unit, but they dis- charged him after a week. That was after he took LSD." Ann Stewart, a small, grey- haired woman.broke in: "On the way home from the hospital, he said he wished he were a little boy again so he could start life over. He told me he wished he'd never started taldng drugs. The problem is he wanted to stop, but he thought he could do it himself. "We tried to get him into Dutchess County Health Centre, but he wouldn't go. 'I can han- dle it he said." The Stewarts said their son was a handsome boy, about six feet only he didn't have that long hair." They said he was about a B student "when he wanted to interested in music and art, "We used to ask him why he took drugs and the only answer we ever got was, 'I like Stewart.said. "I guess he started to lose bis incentive about two years ago. His grades slipped. He dropped out of school. He started going around with different friends. Up until then, he used to go to church. Before he died, he told us he prayed, that he'd made his peace with God." NOT MUCH TO DO Most of Jeff's friends said they, too, experiment with drugs. Some said they "smoke" (marijuana) and "drop acid" (LSD) regularly. One of Jeff's friends explained why he likes drugs: "You see people who aren't there, .and they're colored, man, like pink, lavender and you're talking to them and your imagination is working over- time doing don't that beat sitting here on the curb looking a the fire hy- Asked why he started taking drugs, the youth said: "There's not much else to do in Hope- well." Though disapproving of drag abuse, most of the town resi- dents agree there's no place in Hopewell Junction for young people to gather and little for them to do. There's no movie, no bowling alley, no discotheque and no teen centre. The one place many teen- Invitation Extended VICTORIA (CP) Premier W. A. C.

And it was here, amid the handpainted peace signs and a pile of old clothes, that Jeff Stewart died. After Jeff died, the clubhouse was knocked down "so nothing else will happen there." During the summer afternoons, some of the teen-agers gathered at a local swimming hole. It'i pol- luted, but there's another traction.
