Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor LET'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 more, but somehow the same old spirit just isn't there. For instance, Halloween seems a lot quieter than it used to be. The pranks and the tricks aren't being played. It's kind of a shame somehow that we've gotten all serious and so concerned about juvenile delinquents that we've almost forgotten what the word prank means. We've nearly taken all the fun out of it and put the blame on drugs, alcohol, and yes, delinquency. Old Socrates really knew what he was muttering about way back then didn't he, except he didn't accept pranks, disobedience to rules, and sometimes downright anarchy as part of the growing up code of ethics. Way back when the world was young, according to my children, and so was I, pranks were the best part of Halloween. ? ? ? The chases down 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 or garbage can. In that respect, things haven't changed one bit. You didn't get yourself caught beside any damage because no one stood around asking whether you did it or not. Then there were the snake dances. Up and down the main street while traffic stopped and waited and rather impatiently remembered their own days of ili-cit wine and someone else's roses. The snake dance in former years used to wind through the city's two theatre houses (how would you like that, A.W.?) until the student population got to be a bit too much to handle. Then there were the days of tying up the town's 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 of the outdoor facilities. Never having grown up in an area where they were still in use, I missed that privilege. I am told the peak of every privy toppler's career was to conquer one on occupied territory. Well, each to his own. Maybe we've forgotten what jokes are. Maybe life 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 desperately to have fun, and miss it because they don't know what fun is. Have fun tonight on Halloween. Go soap a window!

Anything Goes For Attire In Airlines MONTREAL - Scandinavian Airlines took a firm position this week on the question of fashion for the working female by taking no position at all. A bulletin from personnel manager M. J. Slagle informed them that management's position in North America is that ''mini, midi atnd pant - suits will be acceptable office attire." "However," he added, "we must insist that when the third option is utilized, it must be a bonafide pant-suit. Blue- - jeans, chinos and similar outfits do not come under the heading of business 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 introduced, needless to say, we were apprehensive they might be distracting the male members of the staff. But we underestimated our men: either they were made of sterner stuff and devoted to duty, or their eyesight is failing, because we survived the mini and the work got done. "The fact that we added a vision plan to our fringe benefits this year is purely incidental." ARTISTIC BEAUTY SALON Free Parking-Three Operator!
