Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THI UTHSRIDCE HMAID Sqlurdoy, October IT, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor T ET'S face it, Halloween just isn't the fun it used to be Oh, the candies are wrapped prettier and they're probably more sanitary, and they, even cost buPt someLw the same old spirit justisn there. For instance, Halloween seems a lot quieter than it used to be. Tlie pranks and the tricks aren't being kind of a shame somehow that we've gotten all serious and so concerned about juvenile that we've almost forgotten what the word piar.K eve nearly taken all the fun out of it and put the blame on drugs, alcohol, and yes, delinquency. OW Scs reaiV knew what he was muttering about way back then didn't he, except he didn ac- cept pranks, disobedience to rules, and sometimes downright anarchy as part of the growing up code Ivay'back when the world was young, according to my children, and so was I, pranks were the best part of Halloween. The chases back alleys with the boys in blue in hot pursuit was part of the game. We even managed a little indignation when they chased us for something we hadn't done, like toppling a stop sign M Aspect, things haven't changed one bit You didn't get yourself caught beside any damage because no one stood around asking whether you did "Then there were the snake dances.

Off to get the ketchup bottle were Tom Baker, Gary LaFourme and Brian Clampitt n wer paddy wagon. The crowning touch was if we could keep the officer inside at the time. Many a kid spent an hour or two cooling his heels while the little Black Maria was toppled over, tied up as neat as a surgeon's incision. Those days are long gone, _ One favorite memory of some, is the toppling ot the outdoor facilities. Never having grown up in an area where they were still in use, I missed that priv- ilege I am told the peak of every privy toppler s ca- reer was to conquer one on occupied territory. Well, each to his own. Maybe we've forgotten what jokes are. Maybe me has become such a serious business that fun is a boring word, and danger has to underline mischief. It's a shame. A shame that people try so desper- ately to have fun, and miss it because they dont know what fun is. Have fun tonight on Halloween. Go soap a window! A Calendar of Local Happenings Anything Goes Attire n Airlines MONTREAL Scandinavian Mrlines took a firm position Ms week on the question of ashion for the working female y taking no position at all. A bulletin from personnel manager M. J. Slagle informed that management's posi- ion in North America is that 'mini, midi and pant suits will be acceptable office attire." te added, "we must insist that when tlie third option is utilized, it must be a bonafide pant-suit. Blue- jeans, chinos and similar outfits do not come under the heading of busi- ness dress." SAS' uniformed personnel will continue to wear skirts. Slagle said the ruling resulted from queries from SAS .employees. In his memo, he philosophized: "When the mini was first in- troduced, needless to say, we were apprehensive they might be distracting the male mem- jers of the staff. But we under- estimated our men: either they were made of sterner stuff and devoted to duty, or their eye- sight is failing, because we sur- vived the mini and the work got done. "The fact that we added a vision plan to our fringe bene- fits this year is purely inciden- tal." ARTISTIC BEAUTY SALON Free Parklng-Thres Operators Far Appointnwnh Phone 348-3932 535 13th St. N.
