Daylight time generally favored by residents of city and district ANNE WICKEY some good, some bad ELAINE SUSSEY doesn't matter By RICHARD BURKE Herald Staff 'Writer It was a long lime coming, hut now that it's here, there are few gripes. Alberta was one of the last places in North America to slay on standard time through the spring and summer months. This year, however, farmers and film watchers, babies and businessmen throughout the is used little The new telephone informa-' lion, service of the Canadian Mental Health Association in Al- berta has received about 10 calls in its first month of opera- tion, Walter CMHA executive director says. Two-thirds of the calls were from people involved in mental health services and one-third from individuals who have per- sonal and family problems. The calls were received from Calgary, Red Deer, Ponoka, Grande Cache, Edson, Rimbey and Fort Macleod, he said. The "mentalphone" service was introduced Sept. 19 as part of an education program made possible with a grant from the provincial govern- ment. Zenith 06031, which Is loll free and can be called from any part of the province, is manned by professional menta! health workers of the CMHA's provin- cial and north-central regional headquarters in Edmonton. Mr. Coombs said the menial- phone service is available Mon- day through Friday during' of- fice hours in the first three months. After the three-month trial period, the CMHA will decide whether to continue the service on the present or extended ba- ils, or whether it should be cancelled and the funds allo- cated to it made available for other uses.

The other is dislribut- J to the various regional of ces in tlie province for their ducation and information pro- rams. Mr. Coombs said anyone who as any questions about menta ealth is invited to use the lentalphone in confidence. Pro- essionals and organizations in erested in providing menta lealth education should als ind it useful to call the num he said. "One of the reasons for pro 'iding this service was that W' elt people in many non-urbai joints did not have access t he information they required, ic said.

FIILKER Bill Favielle says he doesn't milk cows so it doesn't matter to him, although he leans a lit- tle toward the positive dde. People can do a little more work with the clock advanced 1 the Disney films, for example, an hour, and that's just what Joe Mok does. Two of the city's more charm- ing residents, Agnes Wilson and Annie Whitham, got into a min- or argument over daylight time. Agnes likes the "long, clear nights" which she says result from the time adjust- ment. Annie, who has lived here since 1913, says she has to get up too early now. Taber resident, Ted Wen- bourne, ignores the fact that we have been on daylight time for the past six months. He keeps his watch set on stand- re of sufficient length to allow wo to be shown without kecp- ng patrons out too late, he aid. Mr. Shackleford and Anne Vickcy are both convinced aylight time could be stopped ie beginning of October. As it is now, docks will be set back one hour at 2 a.m. M. 29. arc! time. Mr. who cautioned be "might be a hip- said (he sun comes up the same every day so there's no need for a time change. "Kick it he suggests. STANDARD TIME P.'.chel Walter, from the Raley Colony, says she doesn't like daylight time and doesn't even use it. She too stays on standard time the year around. A spokesman for the Grey- hound Bus Lines says affe" the initial adjustments passengers had to make, no problems were experienced with scheduling. Jack Lakie, manager of the Sick's Lethbridge Brewery, salt there were no problems will shift workers when the time was advanced 3rd no difficulties when standan time returns. A minor problem did occur a first in the city power plan when some midnight to 8 a.m shift workers wondered how they would be compensated fo the extra hour they had to wor the first day of daylight time They work an hour less th day time becomes standari again. MOVIE PROBLEMS A. W. Shackleford, owner of the Green Acres Drive-in, says daylight time disrupted the drive-in operation only during July, when films could not be put on the screen until after 10 He adjusted to the situa- tion by running shorter fea- tures that month, "but not in- ferior quality films."

Mr. Freemantel was in Leth- jridge Tuesday to conduct a one-day workshop for teachers and others involved in working with young people who have a [icaring problem. In an interview with The Herald, Jlr. Freemanlel said extra attention to the needs of student with a hearing prob- lem does not mean the class has to be geared to one person. "It is a case of going ahead three steps and back he said. "The entire class mil benefit from proach." such an ap- Mr. Freernantel, principal o: the Alberta School for the Dea: in Edmonton, said there are several practical tilings teacher can do in the class- room when working with a youngster who is h a v i n i trouble hearing. The teacher can restrict her movements in the class, never talk facing the blackboard and let the studen work with another who has ni hearing problem. Mr. Freemantel said there is little to be gained by segregat ing such students in a separat class or school, especially thos who have only a slight hearin; problem.
