Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lctlibruicjc Herald 4th Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, September Pages 35 to A, Herald Family Chris Stewart A five month course in advanced practical obstetrics (midwifery) at the University of Alberta's School of Nursing Education has been completed by missionary nurse Jean Sokvitne who plans to return to her duties in Addis Ababa in mid September. Mis Sokvitne, a gold medalist from the Gait School of Nur- sing, reports that there are not always doctors around in the bushlands of Ethiopia when babies are to be delivered and for this reason she felt preparation in midwifery necessary. "Usually the bush midwife takes care of births in the bush Miss Sokvitne points out, "but they usually bring any abnormal cases into the hospital and it is for these cases my midwifery training will be invaluable." The local missionary nurse, who has been stationed at the Sudan Interior Mission's Soddo Hospital for the past four years, will be recommissioned for missionary service at the Evangelical Free Church by Rev. Ralph Jacobson of Calgary, the mission's Canadian representative. Miss Sokvitne hopes to pursue her studies of Amheric, the official Ethiopian language at language school in Debre Berhan, north of Addis Ababa upon her return. Captain Ron Butcher, head of the Salvation Army's Suicide Prevention service, fresh back from a Calgary summer school course on Alcohol and Drug Abuse calls for a greater under- standing of the gravity of the present alcohol problem. He reports that children of parents who smoke are more prone to turn to pot than those of non smoking parents and warns that the use of tobacco and coffee is also a use of drugs. Captain Butcher, retiring president of the Alberta Chaplain's Association and Father Frank McCarty, retiring secretary, will be attending the annual Chaplain's conference in Grand Prairie. A coming and going party staged by the youth of the Evangelical Free Church honored members leaving and arriv- ing for school and positions. Feted were U of L students Jim Dunstan and John Van Westenbrugge, leaving for the U of A to pursue dentistry and medicine, respectively; Dave Stewart to complete Calgary's Berean Bible College; Tim Jost, leaving to study 6p- tometry at the University of Waterloo; John and Harold Peacock, to co pastor Edmonton's Missionary Church and con- tinue studies at Mountain View Bible College in Didsbury, respectively; Linda and Heather Cole, who are moving to Ed- monton and Bruce Stewart off to the Canada Bible College in Regina. New members welcomed into the youth group were Cheryl Stewart, of Lancaster, Penn., first year U of L student; Glen Redekopp of Spirit River and Jake Wiebe of Le Crete. Citizens planning on running for school board positions in Area No. 11 (boarded by High River, Medicine Hat, Foremost and the Crowsnest Pass) are invited to present their platforms at the first Home and School meeting for fall slated for Monday, September 30 at p.m. in the Lakeview School. Mrs. S. J. Byam, president, invites all school board can- didates to familiarize parents with their views on curriculum, financing and school administration matters by being present at this initial meeting. The annual home and school convention for Area No. 11 is slated for Lethbridge in November, date of which will be set at the October meeting. Seventeen year old Robert Byam, grade 12 student at LCI, is back at his studies following a summer of teaching track and field, softball and volley ball in the Air Cadet's training program at Penhold. Robert, one of four Byam sons involved in cadets (the others are Lee. Jack and Calvin) is one of some 45 local youths benefiting from the program offered by Air Cadets Squadron No. 11 conducted each Tuesday night at Kenyon Field, open to youths between ages 13 and 19 years. Training is offered in glider flying, navigation, handling of small air craft and even training as a fully licensed pilot. Garden scene at dusk RICK ERVIN photo The coming of fall brings a new look to the popular Nikka Yuko Centennial Garden, with multi-hued trees and shrubs. The garden drew good crowds this sum- mer season, with attendance surpassing daily records for last year. It is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will close Oct. 15. DO YOU KNOW. Profit found in garbage Towns initiate recycling program NEW YORK (AP) Some- day your garbage man may pay for the privilege of car- ting away your garbage. If you take a close look at what you are about to throw away, you may see why. Even a class ring that cost only to may contain a half- ounce of 10-karat alloy worth recycling experts advise. Ultimately, towns may take over the garbage sorting problem for the taxpayers' benefit. In Bridgeport, Conn., such a project is already un- der way with a six-town pool planning to profit from the world's first resource recov- ery system to tackle raw mu- nicipal waste. The system can handle to tons of garbage a day and will sort out four basic natural metals, aluminium, glass and other material such as cellu- lose (combustibles such as explained Jack McCarthy, chairman of the regional group. Even the gummy, non-rec- yclable paper-carbon or plas- tic wrappings from meat and frozen food will be mixed with oil to be burnt as a supple- ment to fuel. The towns have been work- ing for five years at their own expense on the project. M. J. Mighdoll. executive vice-president of the National Association of Recycling In- dustries, said his association processes and utilizes more than 90 per cent of recycled materials reclaimed from in- dustrial firms and consumer services. "Strides are being made in Mighdoll said. "One of six aluminum cans is being recycled. And just about half of all copper used in the entire economy of the United States is supplied by the recycling industry." The average householder may not have the big copper cables, pipes or wire that make up the bulk of such scrap, but he has small amounts of metals as well as paper that may be sold to lo- cal dealers. In fact, gold min- ing at home can be profitable. People dispose of pins, earr- ings, bracelets, necklaces, cuff links and tie pins that con- tain gold. If a dented piece of metal is recycled it will have the same inherent qualities as the primary metal, the 100 per cent pure scrap sold as virgin ore. Gold is used in dentistry and to plate base metals used in electronic equipment, tele- visions, touch phones, calcu- lators, chemical laboratories, and even in aircraft. Some large jet engines use 20 to 30 ounces of gold to attach seals and manifolds. "Scrap is a stepchild of in- Mighdoll said. "Any- thing produced has a waste element and the function of the recycling industry is to utilize waste though there is more concern in design engineering now about what happens later to a paper cartons or we are trying to minimize the contamination of recoverable elements." Legislators are trying to br- ing down the cost of recycled materials which are com- peting with mine companies that have depletion al- lowances.
