THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Harriet's Uncle George is the one hanging onto the lamp post...Uncle Martin lying on tha sidewolk there, is the one who drinks." Thinking of Furniture, TV, Appliances THINK OF SIDORSKY'S OPENING SOON AT 542 13th ST. NORTH, LETHBRIDGE IF SIDORSKY'S CAN'T SELL FOR LESS-WHO CAN? Rotary Club program Oklahoma student on exchange at LCI By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON HcraM Staff Writer "Shock" came as Robin Re- ger's initial reaction to the open use, sale, and discussion of illegal drugs by youth in Lcthbridge. Miss Reger arrived retently as part of a Woodward, Okla- homa and Lelhbridge Rotary Club's student exchange pro- gram, and is now a senior stu- dent attending the Lcthbridge Collegiate Institute. In her home town of people, Miss Roger stated Tues- day, most people are not even aware of those persons who have dope or who are using it. "When I first came, I thought the kills were just kidding about using drugs, and buying and selling them, but then I found mi: that they weren't, she said. Young people in Woodward, according to Miss Reger, are "basically just cowboy and just a few 'long-hairs.' The world wide Rotary Chin has been carrying on this ex- change program for "a long, long says Miss Reger, and studenti have gone to al- most every country except Communist China, and Russia. Another male student from Woodward is attending classes in Australia at present. The sending Rotary pays the transportation costs of the stu- dent to and from the location of exchange, and the receiving Ro- tary pays room and board, school supplies, plus a monthly allowance fo miscellaneous ex- penses. Insteady of staying for Uie full school year, as other ex- change students will be doing, Miss Reger will return to her home at Christmas time be- cause of the difference in the semester school year in Lath- bridge, and the regular school year in Woodward. Woodward is located in the northwesterr. part of Oklahoma state, and is in a very sparsely populated area, Miss Reger states. "Most of the schools are real- ly tiny, but the high school which I attended had about 600 students, with about 30 students in each Miss Reger ex- plained. Options, and teaching meth- ods, as well as textbooks are all alike both in Lethbridge and Woodward, "EL) I wasn't any ahead or behind any of the stu- dents here when I sire said. Prejudice In "None at Miss Reger main- tained. "Although there was Q family of Negroes moving in when I was leaving." This would be Ihe first Black family ever to Jive in Wood- ward as lav as Miss Reger could recall, "but maybe there Exchange student Robin Reger will be some prejudice I don't know." There are a "few Indians and Mexicans, and a small minor- ity of Mormon families" living in Woodward, but Miss Reger has seen no definite prejudicial treatment towards these groups. Populated mostly with farm- ers, ranchers, and small busi- nessmen, the area has a leather factory wlrich produces such things as leather jackets and moccasins. But Miss Reger hastily add- ed, "we do have a new under- wear factory which came in this fall." Womeji's rale sandwichmaker TORONTO (CP) The chair- man of the royal commission on the status of women says that in Canadian political parties it's the men who make the policies "and the women who make the sandwiches." Anne Francis Bird told a Ca- nadian National Exhibition directors' lunch eon recently that since 1920 when woman suf- frage was extended, people have been elected to the Com- mons and provinc i a 1 legisla- tures but only 67 were women. "We're outside the power said Mrs. Bird. "Women are outside the power structure in business and fi- nance as well as politics." She said that of director- ships three years ago, only 41 were held by women. "Women, as they seek equal- ity, must contend with a society conceived and controlled by men. They will require a high degree of resolu t i o n to attain the position their ability de- serves."

Friday, 3, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIB 19 Wheelchair student wants to graduate FRESNO, Calif. (AP) Car- oline Cooper must get around the campus in a wheelchair now because of poor cirt-ulation in her legs, and increased tuition costs are a worry, but she's de- t e r m i n e d to graduate next spring from college. "I just feel positive I will make says Mrs. Cooper, who is 81 years old and a grand- mother. And after graduation? Per- haps graduate studies for a master's degree because, says Mrs. Cooper, school officials "are asking if I want to." Willi her husband dead and her children living in other areas, Mrs Cwper enrolled in college in IMS. Actually she had wanted to take some adult school night classes but found she couldn't get to school be- cause there were no evening bus runs. "A woman registrar sug- gested I go to Fresno City Col- lege in the daytime. The oppor- tunity came, so I just STUDIES LATIN While at the city college she saw a girl carrying a Latin text- book. Mrs. Cooper struck up a conversation and found the girl was taking the course at Fresno State College. "I always wanted to study Latin, so f decided to go to Fresno State to study Mrs. Cooper says. Last March she suffered a minor heart seizure. It kept her out of classes only hvo weeks: "I couldn't see myself let the j whole semester go down the drain." Because of poor leg circula- tion, she uses the wheelchair to get from class to class. Her most immediate worry la getting together enough money to meet next fall's increased tui- tion cost from her Social Secu- rity and Old Age Assistance in- come. Friends have started a small campaign to help. Her son, a merchant seaman, also has promised aid. Obtaining a college education, she says, has been "zr. enor- mous pleasure, very exhilarat- ing; it gives me something to do that keeps my mind active so I don't Usrn into a human vegeta- ble." love is... a feeling that Is sometimes difficult to bide.
