Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE liTHBRIDOf HIRAID Tutidoy, Ottobtr 27, 1970 Manual Aids Supervisors Alcohol Program Has 90 Per Cent Success OTTAWA (CP) Ann St. liOuis's program to rehabili- tate alcoholics has a 90-per- cent success rating. Mrs. St. Louis, after 28 years in the public service, was recently awarded a cheque for and a certifi- cate of merit under the public service incentive award plan. She has also written a manual for supervisors in government departments on how to treat alcoholism and problem drinking among This manual is being adopted in other departments and will eventually be distrib- uted throughout the public service in Canada. Pioneer Baalim Honored Arthur G. Baalim, pioneer Lethbridge businessman, was honored at a public birth day party in Ericksen's Restaurant Sunday, and by the Letbbridge Rotary Club Monday, on the oc- casion of his 90th birthday. Chief Judge L. S. Turc o tt e spoke at ths Sunday gathering, W. P. Davidson Monday. Mr. Baalim is the only sur- vivor of the group which found- ed the Rotary Club in 1917, and was its second president. "He was either promoter or j backer of every good cause un-1 dertakea alter he came to Leth- b r i d g Mr. Davidson said. Both speakers stressed his ef- forts on behalf of war bond sales. He was awarded the MBE decoration for those ef- forts. He was recently the subject of an extended story in The Herald's "Builders of the South" Mrs. St. Louis works for the customs ami excise branch of the department of national revenue. She became con- cerned about the alcoholic employee in 1965 when she was appointed the branch's personnel counsellor: "I was in charge.of the sec- tion dealing with promotions, transfers and retirements, and while I was processing retirements, I noticed people retired with hundreds of days of sick leave to their she said. PATTERN EMERGED "But there were some who had little or no sick leave left after working for 35 or 40 years. I could understand this if the employee had a chronic illness and was required to be absent frequently. "I checked and investigated and I found that many cases involved the employee being absent on Fridays, Mondays, or the day after pay day. A pattern began to emerge." Mrs. St. Louis persuaded the department to begin an alcoholic rehabilitation pro- gram. She herself took a course at the'University of Windsor, at- tended the International Con- gress on Alcoholism in Wash- ington and went to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in Ot- tawa, Toronto and Montreal, "After all this research and study, I decided the key per- son to do something about al- coholisir was the employee's immediate supervisor, That's the best person to observe on a day-to-day basis whether drinking habits affect the em- ployee's attendance or work performance. "Since the program was in- stituted, more and more alco- holics are coming to light." She estimated that approxi- mately three to four per cent of the national work force are alcoholics. "The percentage in federal employment is no greater than in the private sector."

(AP) A potential woman minister says the decision by the Ameri- can Lutheran Church to admit women to the clergy is a step in the right a broader recognition of women's roles in the church. Barbara Andrews, 35, of Min- neap oils says the change adopted here is a "sign of the times" in which women are de- manding equal rights with men in all areas of life. Delegates to the fifth general convention of the 2.5-million- mcmber denomination approved a measure allowing the ordina- tion of women in a session Sat- urday. One of two women in the de- jiomiEation fully qualified to enter the ministry, Miss An- drews told an interviewer she felt the major opposition to or- daining women was "tradition fear of change." For the last six years, Miss Andrews has served as a lay minister with the campus team ministry at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. HAPPY REUNION Father J. N.

If there is no improvement, the employee is referred to Mrs. St. Louis who tells him about the methods and agencies in the community at his dis- posal. Most are referred to the de- partment of national health and welfare for a medical as- sessment, then to the Alcohol- ism and Drug Addiction Re- search Foundation for treat- ment. Mrs. St. Louis said few alco- holic employees are women, but she gets plenty of.calls from men in all job categories asking what approach they should tak with wives who have drinking problems. "There are lots of execu- tives who can't see they have a problem at home. They come home with a briefcase full of work, retire to their studies and tell their wives to have dinner ready in two hours. What do they think their wives are doing during this time? They're having a drink or two or three, that's what." Because of her expertise on the subject, she is invited to speak at many meetings. Re- cently she was guest speaker at the 35th annual conference held by Alcoholics Anonymous in Miami Beach, and is to ap- pear before the American Management Association in New York City later this year. Requests for her manual have come from Australia, India, Yugoslavia, Ireland, Costa Rica, Central America and France, SPACE-AGE NURSES Models wear revolutionary nursing uniforms Introduced In London Sunday by Pierre Cqrdin who sees them as an introduction to space-age nursing.
