Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, October 16, 1971 For The Record BX MARILYN ANDERSON Family Editor ECTIOiS'S arc probably the oddest part of our democratic society, and usually Hood for a laugh and oil en a good cry. The safest bet to make on tlie outcome of any election is just how unpredictable it will come out. The secret ballot has probably been the ruination of many a prospective politician, and the unlikely suc- cess of many a sure failure. Anyway it happens, and the whole country is stuck with the total effect until it gets a chance at the same haphazard selection all over again. One candidate told me election night he'd re- ceived a call from a woman wanting to know if women were entitled to vole. I know, I couldn't believe it either, but the man in question didn't make it up. We in the media keep telling ourselves that people have a responsibility to themselves to find out these things, and the pre-election census is enough for most people but when there are ques- tions such as this, someone isn't doing the .job right. There are others who don't realize that it isn't necessary to fill out a complete ballot. If you have, for instance, only five selections out of eight posi- tions, you make those five stronger by not giving an equal vote lo three others you aren't in favor of, just to fill the ballot. Of course, as someone pointed out it depends upon whether you are trying to elect a candidate or ensure that a candidate will not be elected. If you are hoping for the latter, those extra voles will help your cause. Anyway, the election is over, the new council has been chosen (with an average age of about 50) and the next job is to select a deputy mayor. Take three 30-odd-year-olds (note the hyphen, fellas) and put on three over 40s and 50s and 60s Former deputy mayor Rex Little declined the many suggestions to run again this term, and so the position is vacant. Formerly the aldermen took turns at being dep- uty mayor, but it was decided last year that one alderman should be appointed for the job and Rex Little was considered the best choice. Incumbents, of course, would be the best place to start since they have up to three years of office experience behind them. Of the five, some special consideration must be given to Aid. Vera Ferguson. NOT because we are both members of the same sex. NOT because I think it's about time for a woman to be deputy mayor. I don't. Women will do what- ever they can do when they're ready and willing to do it. Nor because I am part of her campaign party. I'm not. Aid. Ferguson has crossed words with this col- umn from time to time, and we've both survived. Perhaps because of her straightforward approach to city business, and her refusal to back away from contentious issues, she has both irritated and gained respect during the last three years. Vera Ferguson may not have considered the added responsibility of deputy mayor, but it will be a consideration of the seven aldermen and mayor in the coming days. In lighter matters, judging by reader reaction, it's true as I always suspected, that Lethbridge is such a nice city because it's half populated by for- mer Saskatchewan types. These poor people born here, raised here and living here just don't under- stand the magic of "going home. Marriage healthy if partners grow FULL OF PEP AT 95 Mrs. Barbara E. Harding will celebrate her 95th birthday Sunday. Born in teeds, England on October 17, 1876, she sailed for Vancouver in 1910. A shipboard romance sprang up on the voyage, and in 1911 she came to Lethbridge and married alderman Charles Harding. Mrs. Harding has three children, Mrs. R. W. (Edina) Sponholz of Medicine Hat, and Mrs. H. J. (Mavis! Standing and Fred Harding of Lethbridge: six grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Active for her age, Mrs. Harding likes to go walking and visiting and to knit. She has been active in the Pentecostal church for more than 50 years, and never misses a Sunday service if she can help it. MAUREEN JAM1ESON I Staff Writer j "People lend lo think of the I family as a static 1 said George Mann. He was speaking at the first informal sit-in session of Ihe family workshop sponsored by the University of Lethbridge and Ihe Canadian Mental Health Association. U of L faculty members Pro- fessor Mann, sociologist, and Dr. Tony Miller, psychologist, are the workshop leaders. According to Professor Mann lira family is, in fact, in a state of constant change. Children grow, parents mature and some families break up and are reorganized. Dr. Miller emphasized the re- sults of a recent study, which show that 83 per cent of the people involved in the survey considered the effects of the first-born to cause extensive or severe crisis in the family. S' c h e d u 1 e s must be re- arranged to meet the baby's needs, particularly feeding; the couple's love life has then to be planned, and socializing be- comes an organized operation, said Dr. Miller. He considered most parents to be unprepared for the change. The North American culture tends to concentrate on the conjugal family unit, he claim- ed, meaning parents and chil- dren. Other cultures function on the extended family sys- lem. with "grandparents, chil- dren and children's children" as the unit- Responsibility of the children is a greater burden when there are only two sets of shoulders, said Professor Mann. Problems arise, Dr. Miller explained, when the mother slays home and speaks baby talk while the father is having adult conversation and contacts in his work. lie added that par- ents worry about doing Ihe right thing by the children, and whether Ihe youngsters are growing up as they should. "Does Ihe fact I get uptight get in Ihe way of raising the kid the way he should is a question parents ask, said Dr. Miller. And then the wife wants lo know if it damages the chil- dren when the mother works. "The husband is caught in Ihe middle." he continued. "lie wants what's best for Hie chil- dren, hut doesn't want his wife to be a drudge."

"People who constantly grow within the relationship and use each other as a stimulus will stay together." said Dr. Martin, adding that if only one partner grows, he leaves the other behind.

The researchers reported in the October issue of the medi- cal journal Anesthesiology lhat operating room nurses had 3.4 times as many miscarriages during a five year period as non-operating room nurses. Tlie increase in miscarriages was even more significant among physician anesthetists who receive a .greater exposure to anesthetics than nurses, the report said. Anesthetics are chemical agents that cause unconscious- ness or insensitivity to pain. One of the researchers said the most common anesthetic used in U.S. hospitals is halo- rooms.
