Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ]Vew director for YWCA -Saturday, 2, T972 THE LETHMIDGC HOtAlD 17 Jeanna keeps in touch with community By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Both the people and the weather in Lethbridge "seem to be according to Jeanna Baty. Jeanoa Is the new executive director of the YWCA. She came here one month ago with a strong background in recre- ation and a BA in English from the University of Calgary, "al- though all the pieces were got all over tho country. and ing Tve had family life training special training since com- to the she said. "And I continue to go to university in my spare lime." In her new position, Jeanna said, "I'm responsible for staff, and assisting the board in serv- ing community needs." It is the volunteers who keep the organization running, Je- anna pointed out. They cVslcr- mine what they can do to fit into the community, and Je- anna then uses her own expe- rience and expertize to accom- plish the goals they set. "I aiso keep the furnace run- where "women get out into the community and do something they enjoy. "This association is involved a good deal in co-operating with other agencies in the com- munity. It is my responsibility to maintain contacts with she added. "Generally, I see my respon- sibility as relating to the many volunteers we have working in this organization, co-ordinating staff effectively and supervis- ing the ongoing operation of the organization." FORMER GROUP WORKER: Jeanna spent the past two years as a group worker with the Calgary Y, assisting teen- agers with special needs, such as slow learners and under- achie'vers. "I found that portion of my Job very interesting, very satis she said. Because she had previously worked in Trinidad, she was also responsible for world rela tionships at the Calgary Y. "That's a pretty open she said. For her, world relationship- rdng or provide moral support involved raising, money to be for those who keep the furnace said with a grin. Although res ident girls have a house mother, "should there be any special problem there, this comes into my area of re- she said. Apart from the residence, Je- anna's area of responsibility encompasses the Y's programs for women, which are frequent- ly operated in conjunction with the city. These include Y Teen groups, Blue Triangles, English class- es for new Canadians and bridge groups. However the one in which Jeanna takes the greatest personal interest is the decentralized take a break, It also meant "informing and Jeanna nvolving local members and Trinidad jicreasing their awareness of verseas involvement." This was done through 'speakers, films, travel tours and conferences In world rela- ions." WITH CUSO IN TRINIDAD: In Trinidad, Jeanna was a CUSO (Canadian University Itudcnts Overseas) volunteer working as a youth officer for community development. "We didn't have trouble with the youth, but with the govern- she said. "It is a small country wilh economic prob- lems, bogged down with other like unemployment and birth control. 'I was always bouncing up against f r u s t r a tions. There were people working there with better qualifications, but be- cause I was foreigner they seemed to think that I would b r i n g a special ability or gift that would solve the problems they couldn't." CUSO's purpose is that peo- ple should work themselves out of a job, she said. But two years is a short time for this kind of work. "At best you may spark somebody else to do it when you leave. explained "the pace that in is much slower. Living is beautiful, but work is exasperating." STRONG SUPPORT FOR Y: Jeanna said she left Calgary because "it was time for a and "Lethbridge seemed most positive smaller city with potential growth. "It's a city with a university and a surprising amount- of cul- tural activity for a western community of this size." She said she feels the Y re- ceives generous support in Lethbridge. "The community seems to think they really have a par in and that's good from Joanna's point of view. Fluoride good for baby teeth The acceptance of fluorid tablets by expectant mothers t provide good teeth for their ba hies has been excellent, reports Dr. Lloyd W. Johnston of th Haig CHiic. "We always lot ou patients know we are gtvin them such tablets and they ca refuse to lake them if the want Dr. Johnston sale "But I have not had a singl patient who turned down th tablets." Dr. Johnston said he has bee giving fluoride tablets to hi patients for about 10 years. 11 still thinks the basic solution t good community dental healt is water fluoridation.

(CP Wirephoto) DEAR ANN LANDERS: Physicians and lawyers Tnast earn their academic credentials before they car, hang out their We don't send a pre-med student Into the operating room to perform brain surgery. Why then do we expect Inex- perienced, untrained people to know how to raise childres? I suggest a required course in all high schools. Surely raising children is the most important Job most of us have. Yet how many of as are qualified? Doesn't it maka sense to get some instruction insteiad of perpetuating mistakes from one generation to another? There are co many mewed up kids in the world today, why doesn't someone get the mes- sage? What are your views, Ann? M. C. In M. DEAR M. C.: Although most of us could profit from course on child-rearing, it's not what we KN'OW aboui raising children but how we feel about them that counts. To begin with, the best gift parents can bestow upon their children is to love one another. Thai's where a child's attitudes toward life begin. All the inslruclion in the world can't create an atmos- phere of love and acceptance il none exists. Furthermore not all people who have knowledge can apply it to their own lives. Witness the number of overweight (or alcoholic) who smoke cigarettes. Also, note the disproportionate number of psychiatrists with personality disorders and unresolved prob- lems not to mention the cliildren of many of these Get the picture? I hope so. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 23, have been married less than two years and am ready to call it quits. My husband drinks loo much and 1 disapprove. He says, "I'm the boss around here and if I want to drink no damn woman is going to tell me not to." I have to worry about getting the bills paid, and It's not easy when a man blows ?3o on a weekend for beer awd whiskey. Now he is nagging me to have a baby. He thinks a son will settle his nerves and make him feel more like a man. He claims it's a wife's duty to have a family. I am afraid to bring up children in p. home where there is driridng and lighting. Undecided. DEAR UN: The present situation sounds rocky, lo say the least. Talk to a counsellor and decide if your marricge is worth saving. DON'T have a family unless you're sure it is.

Tho Churchman reports that he seven-member Inquiry group recommended accept- ance of the principle of admis- sion of women to holy orders, appropriate steps to implement his principle and commu- nication of the decision to other churches '.1 the Anglican com- munion as soon as possible. One memher has written a minority report, Tho Church- man states, saying that "based the evidence of scripture, church tradition, history, tho judgment of great minds and a Catholic and apostolic under- standing of the sacremental priesthood, it would seem ut- terly impossible to make the case." The members of the Inquiry group, all from Nova Scotia, in- clude three women, three clergymen and a layman. They were appointed in 1970. The committee on the minis- try will study the report with a view to presenting It to the gen- eral synod, highest governing body In tho Anglican Church of Canada, next May. WASHINGTON CAP) A statement by a New York pa- thologist that the birth-control vasectomy operation can cause permanent sterility and other health problems has lenged by two doctors who spe- cialize in the operation. Dr. Jolin Bernard Henry of Syracuse, N.Y., told a meeting here that preliminary studies suggest that vasectomies can Increase chances of contracting diseases such as multiple sclerosis ar.d rheumatoid ar- thritis. But Dr. Robert S. Gould of Mass., said in re- sponse to Dr. Henry's report that, "It has not been our ex- perience in the many thousands of vasectomies we have per- formed, nor has it been the ex perience nationwide, that any clinical illness follows va sectomy." Dr. Gould is a urologist ani medical director of Nationa Vasectomy Services in Cleve- land and Cincinnati. QUESTIONS TtEPOUT Also questioning the Henr> report was Dr. Fletcher Der rick, chief urologist at Goorg Washington University Hospita and a specialist in vasectomies He said the evidence is "to circumstantial to allow relatin any disease to vasectomies, and also for permanent slei ility. He said there have been oc casional as fa as two out of a million vasei d by the American Association Blood Banks, cautioned that is findings were preliminary inconclusive, and said he oped it would not end vasec- omy operations.
