Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The LetHbruJge Herald Fourth section Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, October 31, 1974 Pages 33-40 Judo experts help class Members of the Alberta Kodikan Black Belt Association ex- pect to be strong contenders at the Canadian Winter Games following their participation in the invitational meet at Ed- monton this weekend. The local judo team, under the direction of Yosh Sends took five firsts in the Edmonton Junior Olympics in August. There has been a very heavy enrolment of Juniors in the 15-and-under class, this fall with a few vacancies still remaining in the intermediate and senior division. Two Japanese judo experts here on a three-week exchange visit are seven-time champions, 52-year-old Hido Nlhei, Sapiro police force supervisor, and four-time champion, 27-year-old Takayuki Kenya, who are assisting Yosh Senda, at evening sessions at the Y and Wednesday afternoons at the U of L. The two judo experts won their all-Japanese titles against competitors. The mother's group promoting breast feeding has received its certificate in the La Leche League International with Mary Lou Nordstrom named leader. One hundred local mothers have been helped with breast feeding techniques since Mary Lou and Betty Ann Papp organized the group. Ruth Crapo leads a similar group in Milk River. For further information contact Mrs. Papp at 327-6308 or Mrs. Nordstrom at 328-1881. Long range plans to include recreational swimming are ex- pected to be implemented by the members of the Arthritis Education group this year, according to president, Mrs. Frank Russell. The 20-member group who have concentrated" on learn- ing how to cope with the disease, will provide transportation and baby sitting service for those wishing to attend their monthly meetings. Interested persons should contact Mrs. Russell at 328- 3108 or Mrs. Mary Heinetz, 327-5505. Major Don Graham of the 20th Independent Field battery RCA (M) recently accompanied his men on a training session at the Suffield Canadian Force Base. There are still some openings remaining in Major Graham's battery which practices at the Kenyon Field Armories Monday and Wednesday evenings. Mrs. Betty Graham motivates hundreds of Southern Alberta pupils to give to the Red Cross. This ex-social worker, now field supervisor, covers schools from Bellevue to Taber, interesting pupils in raising funds from bottle drives, penny car- nivals and selling used stamps for the purchase of walkers, heating aids and wheelchairs. They also grow plants for elderly patients and make favors for hospital trays. She has a raft of teaching aids available to interested teachers. Prof. Jim Cousins is hoping the new bridge linking 6th Avenue with University Drive on the west side will have more of an official opening than that of the four-span thoroughfare crossing the same river in the fall of 1890. Plans for the bridge had been drawn up as early as July, 1886. However, by the completion date four years later interest had shifted to the arrival of the railway from Great Falls and the accompanying real estate boom. Nothing can be found on record about an of- ficial opening for the long-awaited span. Two kidney recipients were named to the executive of the 'new Lethbridge branch of the Kidney Foundation of Canada aj the organizational meeting held recently at St. Michael's hospital Don Kirk, president, who received a kidney transplant six months ago and treasurer, Norman Robinson who had had the same operation 111 days ago are both dedicated to interesting individuals in becoming kidney donors. Catherine M." Cranstoun is secretary with Dr. Arthur G. Livingston and Dr. Ian Wright, directors. Roy Chenger, 19, Grade 11 student at LCI, is waiting for a kidney transplant He has suffered from kidney malfunction since Grade 4, had his kidneys removed in June, 1973, rejected a kidney transplant a year ago, and is hoping each day that another chance will be given him. He spends 27 hours a week at the dialysis centre at St Michael's hospital. He could undergo dialysis sitting up reading or watching TV in a Lazy Boy chair, if one was provided. Instead he has to lie flat on his back for nine full hours, three times a week. One of the projects the newly-elected Kidney Foundation executive hopes to undertake is to provide such a reclining chair for local kidney patients, while seeking kidney donors so that dialysis will be a thing of the past for Roy and others like him. A materials' management department to take care of the complete handling, purchasing, processing, sorting and dis- tribution of all hospital materials is being established at St. Michael's hospital, according to Sister Clarissa, administrator. Housed in the two-storey building formerly used by the laundry, the renovations are expected to be completed by mid- December. Paper-bag masks with paper cups for noses were fashioned by Mrs. Urban Pittmaa, president of the St. Michael's Hospital Auxiliary and the children of the pediatrics ward as part of the year round children's activities in which auxiliary members become involved. They also sponsor the Good Samaritan cup- board supplying layettes for needy mothers. Helen Berlando, in- coming president, and Jon Robinson are delegates to the provincial Auxiliary convention slated for Edmonton, Nov. 14. Man' Gorrow is coordinator of the Psychiatric Day Care Centre opened in the former nurses' classrooms of SL Michael's hospital. An extension of the Municipal Hospital's psychiatric department, the new unit is projected to accommodate as many as 30 patients. Fifteen are being served at present. These include in-patients from the Municipal Hospital, now ready for this transition, plus out-patients referred from various agen- cies Assisting Mrs. Gorrow is Aidrey Cartwright, occupational therapist; Rhonda Late, recreational therapist and receptionist Rjrth Stobodian as well as a part-time staff. Lethbridse East hopeful says: Seats not always won at polls By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor The Progressive Conservative nomination for Lethbridge East "should not be left up to the inner circle of Conservative party says a woman seeking the nomination. Jean Kuijt, a 42-year old housewife and teacher, who earlier this week announced she will seek the nomination, asserted in an inter- view that winning the Tory nomination in Lethbridge East is tantamount to being elected to the legislature. Ms. Kuijt thinks most people are unaware of significance of the Conservative nomination meeting to be held Nov. 4. "The likelihood that the Conservatives will win the election in East Lethbridge is very she says. "Therefore the significant decision will be made at the nomination meeting and not at the polls. It's important that there are concerned citizens from that constituency at that meeting to help select the candidate." Ms. Kuijt says that Conservative party members ".wouldn't disagree" with her contention that outsiders should have a say in the nomination. She says that anyone interested in the out- come of the Lethbridge East nomination meeting should become a party member, "by buying a membership at the door the night of' the meeting" if need be, so they can vote at the meeting. In fact, Ms. Kuijt is a Janie come lately to the PC party herself, and she's the first to admit it. "I have never belonged to a political party she says, "but as a concerned citizen, I feel it is important to put myself -The Herald Family forward. And it is vital that other concerned citizens come forward to help select the can- didate for Lethbridge East." Ms. Kuijt cites former Liberal MP Pauline Jewett, recently appointed president of Simon Fraser University, who has been quoted as saying she chose "the party that could get her elected." "I'm saying that admits Ms. Kuijt. "Obviously, many people in the province are doing exactly the same thing. They're just not saying so." She says she was "shocked" to learn that the nomination of a political candidate "is often a numbers game." "The candidate who gets the greatest number of supporters out to a meeting to sup- port his nomination becomes the next can- she says "Politics should be a matter for serious consideration and not a popularity contest." "I can understand that candidates who have the greatest amount of grass roots sup- port should be nominated. But I don't feel the decision should be a matter of who's the best salesman or who has the most money to spend or who already has a well oiled she says. She said the Conservative government is "paying a great deal of attention to Southern Alberta" and says Premier Peter Lougheed has expressed concern that there are too few PC MLAs from the south and too few women in the legislature Living together doesn't always end in marriage Heavy music Since switching from clarinet to tubs.

WASHINGTON (AP) A psychologist's survey shows that 31 per cent of the under- graduates at Cornell Universi- ty have lived with someone of the opposite sex for at least three months. The survey, conducted by Dr. Eleanor Macklin, a lec- turer at Cornell, concludes that students who live together are not necessarily contemplating marriage. Instead, she said, they are do- ing what used to be called "go- ing steady." The survey was conducted two years ago with approxi- mately 300 students chosen from the un- dergraduates at the Ithaca, N.Y., co-educational school. Living together was defined in the survey as having shared a bed or bedroom with a single person of the opposite sex for four or more nights a week for at-least three consecutive months. "The thins I was most con- cerned about was the fact that most of the students didn't want to discuss their relationship with their Dr. Macklin said in a telephone interview. "Their thing was that their parents couldn't handle the problem." Dr. Macklin's findings, pub- lished hi the November issue of Psychology Today magazine, show that nearly 80 per cent of the students who lived together tried to conceal it from their parents. To find what Cornell parents thought about unmarried peo- ple living together, Dr. Macklin said she did a pilot study last winter with parents of 75 third-year students "About two-thirds of the parents thought no one should live together before Dr Macklin said. "Not one single parent would recommend that people live together." Dr Macklin said her stu- dent survey showed that only five per cent of male engineering students lived with single women compared with 60 per cent of male arts and science students. "I'm most interested in the basic ability of people to relate together, and that fact intrigued she said. Her other findings show that 96 per cent of the students liv- ing together said they found their relationship sexually satisfying, and almost all said they used some form of con- traceptive.

Woman judge speaks out TORONTO (CP) British Columbia provincial court Judge Nancy Morrison wishes women would stop opposing other women and learn to work together in their com- mon cause. She calls this phenomenon "polarization." It occurs, she said, when women who stay at home resent women who work and vice-versa. Judge Morrison, 37, current- ly is serving as vice-chairman of the labor relations board of British Columbia and was in Toronto to attend the annual meeting of the Canadian Bar Association. Young in her looks and man- ner, she doesn't fit into the traditional image of a judge, nor does she wish to be addressed as such. She is one of the leading ad- vocates of women's rights on the West Coast "Polarization makes my stomach she said "I think it is something that must be dealt with-and the sooner the better." To solve this problem the problem areas must be looked The word "abortion" tops the problem area. "There is terrific hostility and polarization between women because of the abor- tion she said.
