Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 316 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, October 13, 1970- Budget Approved For Rehab House The board of directors for the Lethbridge Rehabilitation House Committee Wednesday night approved a proposed budget for the establishment of a half way house in the city. The $42,455 budget will be tendered to Ray Speaker, minister of social development for approval. Once approved, the project would then come under the control of the newly formed Alcohol and Drugs Commission. The bulk of the budget calls for three counsellors, a housemother and a part - time bookkeeper for a total salary output of $18,416. Furnishings ($9,-000), food ($4,800), rent ($3,600), renovations ($2,000). and medical expenses ($1,200) make up the other major portions of the $42,455 budget. The objective of the committee is to set up a half way house for about 10 women of any race, color or creed to provide 24-hour supervised accommodation in an attempt to solve personal problems for single home less girls. The initial function of the project will be to provide basic needs: food, shelter, clothing and an atmosphere of warmth PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES $500 JACKPOT LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS.- 8 p.m. and understanding or acceptance. Counselling will be the main function of the half way house. Educational opportunities to the interests of the girls will be provided in an attempt to align the girls for living with society, providing incentives for these girls to become tax-payers rather than remaining a tax burden. Albert Lapatac, Lethbridge native court worker, said goals for new residents will not be set. "There will be no pressure and if a girl finds she is not ready to make the desired changes in her life, it will not mean she will not be accepted at a later date. "This is only a broad outline and the details of programming and management will have to be worked out by the management and staff as the project develops."

We can imagine members of the Women's Liberation Movement, for instance, kidnapping their members of parliament-to hold for ransom until their demands are met. How about kids holding teachers for ransom until they get a longer recess. What is truly puzzling is how easy it seems to be to hijack a plane, which is large, cumbersome and not easily manoeuvred. The story that went down the best was about the pilot who thought1 he had a hijacker aboard. The light over his cabin began to give a warning signal which it does when the door is being forced. What it turned out to be, of course, was a passenger, a bona fide, paid and true, passenger trying to find his way to wash his hands. A rash of vandalism in one neighborhood of town has residents irritated and annoyed. Seems they occur at night and are rather typical of monsters that lurk in the night. One newspaperman was a little nonchalant about the entire matter until he heard the thieves had also made off with the resident's newspaper. THAT was going too far! Doesn't seem like election week at all. Three years is going to be a long time for anyone to dedicate him or herself to a council. Wouldn't be surprised if one or two of our present council representatives have second thoughts on the next trip. Good for everyone to have a turn anyway. Two big weekends coming up - the TOPS convention (no pun intended Rita) on Oct. 17 and the two schools of nursing Gait School and St. Michael's next weekend. Gait's graduation is the 23rd, St. Michael's the 25th, and sandwiched in the middle is the annual Police Ball. The 25th is also Southminster Junior Girls' choir operetta The Idea. A special production by the way is being presented for students on Oct. 19 at 4:30 at the Yates Centre. It's dress rehearsal but a good opportunity for the choir to practise and students to view the production at a low, low rate. All you "weak-kneed bleeding hearts" out there send a birthday card to Pierre Trudeau this weekend. His birthday is Sunday and we doubt he'll be spending it in the Bahamas.

We have succeeded in pulling a particularly interesting upstaging caper: A portable radio with a pop-up, honest-to goodness television. Goes anywhere. On battery or house current. And it delivers a great black and white picture, as well as great FM/AM music. This innovation popped-up at our TV factory. Where we make TV's ranging from VA inches to 20 inches in screen size. The lj^-inch one is the world's smallest TV. Sort of like a wrist-watch. You've got the idea now. We become very involved in making TV's. And we make them in all kinds of combinations. Some with PM/AM radios. Some with clocks. Even portable TV's with batteries inside so you can take them anywhere. And as features go... we don't skimp. Which explains our slide lever controls for precision adjusting. Speed-o-Vision for instant sound and picture -so the team doesn't score while your I TV is warming up. And a few other - goodies like dark-tinted screens and direct vision tubes for better viewing. So go to any Panasonic dealer and ask to see our TV's. Ask our dealer what Arnold has to say about us.
