Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Midi Supporter Keeps 'Em Low For Spring NEW YORK (AP) - Donald Brooks is the type of fashion designer miniskirt fans love to hate. His resort-spring collection, shown today, was all mid-calf and longer. Brooks went all midi last fall and is an outspoken proponent of the midcalf mood, countering midi protests with comments such as, "You can't please every single, vulgar, crude customer throughout the country." He said last spring that if he really cared about catering to large numbers of women, he would design aprons in all sizes. However, it looks as if he's trying everything but handstands to lure more hesitant customers into spending money for the long look. This season he has turned out purple, orange, black and white prints and solids that are real eye catchers. Every dress or pants costume seems to have a special point of interest. The clothes usually ooze flamboyance. Flapper Look Favored By Geoffrey Beene NEW YORK (AP) - The flapper look has been revived by Geoffrery Beene in his spring collection, but skirts are below the knee and pants are the daytime favorite. "People seemed to enjoy themselves in the '30s," said the soft-spoken designer. "There was a casualness then with a lot of luxuriant looks. And I adore pants this season." The pants suits, mostly in navy blue or soft pastels, have wide ties and long, rounded collars, and Beene admits men's wear inspired the tailored look of his suit jackets. With jazz music of the '30s playing in the background, the models showed dresses with a flat and narrow look with no darts at the bustline. There was that old college sweater look in suits with stripes on the arm. Christianity Answers Drug Problem God Squad Preaches Message Of Love By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer The hell-fire and damnation message isn't going to reach kids today because someone with heroin s n a k es (needle marks) up his arm, already knows where hell is, said Bill Roy croft, currently making his home in Lethbridge. "Youth are open to a message of love (meaning the love of Jesus). They are looking for that we had something better to offer. Drugs won't last forever but Christ goes deeper and deeper and gets better as it goes," said Mr. Roycroft. He said "Christianity is the only answer to the drug problem and hundreds of youths came to realize this. We reached all kinds of people including dealers, gogo dancers, prostitutes and gangs." Bibles were handed out to youth and then rap (talk) sessions were held to discuss how each individual could apply Christianity to his own private life. He believes each person should have his own Christian experience. Teens today are turned off by organizations and don't fit into any church. They still need help and crave to hear more about Jesus, he says.

Mr. Roycroft along with Terry Gietz, formerly of Pincher Creek and John Kloppenborg, formerly of Lethbridge will leave this weekend to travel through California, Texas and Oklahoma. They will take the message of Jesus' love to people on the streets and in the bars. Mr. Roycroft travelled on his own last year with the same type of ministry but Mr. Kloppenborg and Mr. Gietz just became involved during the summer. While to Lawton, Oklahoma last year, Mr. Roycroft set up The Cross And The Open Door house which served as meeting, praying, eating and sleeping quarters for teens needing help of some kind. "There was something going every night," he said. Workers of the house realized right from the start that they were in a very violent neighborhood when a gang member was knifed to death on their doorstep the first night. "We never hassled teens about drugs but maintained St, Michael's Alumnae Holds Reunion The St. Michael's School of Nursing Alumnae will hold its annual reunion tea Saturday Oct. 24 from 2-4 p.m., for the 1960 and 1965 classes.

Phone 327-5771 TERRY GIETZ The trio will travel on their own finances and Mr. Roycroft says requesting funds is out. "When you ask, people expect results. I would rather have them experience the results and then support it." He said while members of the house were praying for food, one of the new believers felt it was useless and tried to tear their ideas to shreds. But on the way out, he tripped over a box of groceries someone had left on the doorstep. Mr. Roycroft said they worked 18 to 20 hours every day and went each night to the bars. They would go up to people and simply tell them that Jesus loved them. Owners of private clubs would open their doors when they displayed their bibles and high school teachers began referring kids on "bad trips" to the house. "We became known as the God Squad or the Jesus People." Of course, problems did arise and Mr. Roycroft said he has been beaten up many times. "I just keep telling them Jesus loves them, no matter what they do to me." Sometimes the youth responded so quickly that they would kneel right down in the street, said Mr. Roycroft. He has been working in Lethbridge for the past six months saving money. While here, he has been bringing this same message to the local youth in' eluding Catholic Central High School. Coffee houses and discussion meetings have met over- Saturday, October 17, 1970 _ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 iThe Homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN whelming success, he said. "I talk to youth for an hour about Jesus and they ask for more. So we talk for another hour and they still continue on until midnight or so." He expressed his joy at seeing teens all turned on to the message of love.

STUNTED BY FAMILY TORONTO (CP) - Women in our society are degraded, stunted, and mutilated by the regimented family situation, an internationally known spokesman for Women's Liberaion said.

A lot oT university students have been coming out and their discussions get very intellectual because they have thought everything out very carefully, 'They are certainly past the emotional kick," said Mr. Roycroft. His symbol is a peace sign under a cross which means that real peace can only be found through the love of Jesus. Mr. Roycroft said it is a growing movement and centres are opening in many cities. Recently opened is the Jesus House in Calgary, another in Edmonton and the Daniel's House in Vancouver. Plan on potatoes fa your fall and winter supply of vegetables. There is a delightful array of ideas - soups, salads, toppers and main dish suggestions-that will tempt the pai-ate of all the potato fanciers in your family. Whether your supply of potatoes comes from the stores, the market or your own garden, their storage is very important indeed. Usually they are washed and packaged by the growers, but your handling will insure a good vegetable on your table. Should you have your own garden potatoes to handle, wash and spread out on the basement floor to dry. Store in paper bags, with tops open to ensure a good circulation of air. It is best to cool to 40 deg. F. and keep at this temperature; 90 per cent humidity is ideal. A temperature lower than this tends to develop a sweet flavor. Store in a dark place, since, if they are exposed to light they turn green, acquire a bitter t\i s t e and begin sprouting. Green potatoes should be discarded. Consider this when you buy potatoes at the store. Re-member too, that potatoes should never be stored in a plastic bag. When potatoes have been kept at or near 40 deg. F. they should be allowed to stand at room temperature for 48 hours to two weeks. This is to allow the sugar to be reconverted to starch. Buy potatoes which are firm, smooth, well - shaped and free from decay and blemishes, of a size well suited to your purposes and in amounts which can be conveniently stored. Baker or boiler? is a question often asked by the consumer. When you have in mind boiling the potatoes you will look for a potato that will keep its shape when cooked. And when you wish to bake the potatoes you will want them to bake mealy and flaky. Research In the U.S.A. has discovered a way to separate the boilers from the bakers by the sink-or-swim test. You can do it in your own home and at the same time keep the children occupied. Make a brine solution of 1 cup salt to 11 cups water. Dump the potatoes in, or let the children do it. Potatoes which float have a low solids content and so are best for boiling. Those which sink are best served baked. Baking nails will speed up baking time depending on the size of the potatoes. So if you are in an habitual hurry or want a potato that is of superb flavor, get yourself two Baking Nails, at no cost, by writing: Alberta Potato Commission, 101, 320 9th Avenue, S.W., Calgary 2, Alberta.
