14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAtD Mdoy, Jepttmbtr 4, 1978 In My inion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Staff Writer development. That phrase should mean a lot to Lethbridge residents because in the forthcoming years it will strongly influence outdoor education, recreation and the local tourist industry. The possibilities for expansion of facilities in the valley west of the city is unlimited and very ex- citing for those involved in its planning. Currently there are no areas available for people on foot to go except in the playground or grassed area. A nature walk could be used by ele- mentary school classes in their ecology studies, for an afternoon stroll or a place for parents to relax while the children can run and throw stones to their heart's content. in my opinion, too often children are completely tept away from rivers and told they are dangerous and not to be approached. In this way the child de- velops a fear of the river and there is nothing worse than a fear of fear. By using the river in a controlled way such as a suspension bridge over it, study rafts or boats crossing it, canoeing or having special places where they can be near the water, children may be spared a feeling of dread whenever approaching a river. The Lethbridge Natural History Society as well as many long-time residents of southern Alberta have many speculations on how the history and early development of the area can be utilized. An afternoon walk for-a family could include visit- ing the first two drift mines of North West Coal and Navigation Co., located under the train bridge; a nature walk through the valley to the Brewery Gar- dens and The Sir Alexander Gait Museum; through Kinsmen Whoop-Up Country; ford ;the river to the opposite bank where other mines were located and the Indian Battle was staged, back across the river on a suspension bridge to a playground area. The recreational area could include a paddling pool, free play areas, tot lots, natural playgrounds (instead of a jungle of steel bars) and maybe even an area comparable to the vacant lots of yester- years where kids could dig holes, build clubhouses. from lumber scraps and generally tear things apart.' The hills on the west side of the river could be made into tobpgganning slides or used for cardboard box sliding during the summer, provided the scooters have a place to hill-climb so all the hills aren't de- faced by the wheels. What better location could be provided for chil- dren's creative drama than in the river valley? Stories of Huckleberry Finn and Torn Sawyer, com- plete with rafts and the island; Robinson Crusoe, and many others could keep any child busy the whole summer long. Of course driving for pleasure could never be for- gotten as it seems to be the most favorite of all pastimes. But the scenic drives and look-out points are virtually unlimited. When one begins to speculate on the possibilities open to the riverbottom area, I can hardly see how they could help but get excited. What better place to spend a family day! Forthcoming Marriage Mr. and Mrs. Clare Cava- naugh of Edmonton are pleased to announce the forth- coming marriage of their youngest daughter, Corinne, to Mr. Terrance Bodie, youngest son of Mr. and lire. Fred Bodie of Vancouver, B.C. The marriage will take place on September 5 at 4 p.m. in the Central Church of Christ.

Many marriages are wrecked or blighted by a simple hidden cause. Fatigue is easy to blame. But the real problem could lie deeper.

Mini dresses got the lesser share of the spotlight, although there were some in evidence in the slides projected on a screen at the Fashion Canada pre- miere. Midi coats were also much ill evidence along with midi dresses. The lounge wear was maxi.. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pe- pin introduced the show for the benefit of the 150 manufactur- ers, reporters, and government officials gathered at thfl federal conference centre near .the Parliament Buildings. Mr. Pepin said the govern- ment is promoting the fashion industry because it not only employs persons, but also brought in more than billion in exports last year. The aim of Fashion Canada is to get people to buy Cana- dian. All the products pro- moted by it have been manu- factured and designed in Can- ada. The color slides show 124 fashion products that were se- lected by an evaluation com- mittee from products sent hi by manufacturers. Two fully-automated projec- tors are used with an effective fade-in technique to cut out any pause between slides. The fashions are alternately de- scribed in French and English to a musical background. Ac- tion poses of the models help to give a sense of movement. The slides now will be dis- tributed to National Film Board offices across the coun- try for showing to women's groups, service clubs, and oth- er fashion-oriented groups, Canada's trade commissioners in the United States and abroad will also be provided with pro- jectors and slides. A distinctive black and gold Fashion Canada tag will hang on all fashions approved by Fashion Canada's evaluation committee. Top quality and workmanship were the neces- sary criteria for acceptance of articles. The majority of those who at- tended the premiere were dressed conservatively and didn't seem too fashion-con- scious but that was probably because most of them were government officials. A Mon- treal manufacturer, Harold Williams, looked like a pea- cock among the pigeons in his flamboyant red jacket, striped pants, black shirt and white satin bowtie.
