Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 5, 1974 Herald-------------------------- Family Jail tension no longer present Co-ed prison improves atmosphere starts crusade for non-smokers rights PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Jail-house romances at the Prince George Regional Correctional Centre have kept prison barbers and beauty shops busy. The centre has developed a new atmosphere since it started to house both men and women in April. "The females have a good effect on the male said Arno Brenner, senior cor- rectional officer. "The guys are getting more haircuts and shaves and their clothes are VANCOUVER (CP) Smokers who dare to pollute non-smoker Marie Tracy's work space risk an earful as well as a lungful. Mrs. Tracy, who kicked the smoking habit after 20 years, is a vocal crusader for the rights of non-smokers. "There's a No Smoking sip on her office wall, there are standup cardboard placards bearing the slogan "This is a Non-Smoking Area" and there isn't an ashtray in sight. If a visitor misses the signs, or worse, ignores them, Mrs Tracy isn't one to bite her lip in silent frustration She'll ask the visitor to please refrain from smoking and, if that has no effect, the guest will likely be invited to leave Working with the provin- cially-funded Summer Divi- sion of Health Education, Mrs Tracy said there should be smoke free areas throughout the city. She said that after two hours' confinement in a smoky area, such as a beer parlor on Friday night, a non- smoker will have consumed as much smoke as he would have inhaled had he smoked 10 cigarettes. "There has been sufficient research to prov that second- hand smoke is said Mrs. Tracy, who added that 50 per cent of the adults in British Columbia are non- smokers. "Two-thirds of our popula- tion doesn't smoke when children are included in the tally "We want to give non- greater considera- tion than they are presently receiving SHOULD BE SOAKED Soak dried codfish, skin side up, in cold water overnight be- fore cooking. Mrs. Tracy is organizing petitions at 20 shopping centres in the Lower Mainland with the aim of collecting 000 to names of those who support the non-smokers' cause. The petitions urge the estab- lishment of non-smoking areas in such places as dining rooms, offices and medical- dental waiting rooms. "Basically, the petitions are zeroing in on she said. "If you go into a restaurant and order a meal only to find yourself surround- ed by smokers, you're trapped unless you leave the meal un- finished. "By the end of the summer, we hope to have a directory of non-smoking places in the city of Vancouver." Mrs. Tracy's husband also quit smoking and the couple saved a year. "By jointly not smoking, we saved the down payment for a house." Live girls at prison games are 'better than pin-ups'. tottery TV monopolizes children's time ST. CATHARINES, Ont. (CP) The average North American youngster sees 000 people killed by the time he reaches age 14, says the head of Laura Secord secon- dary school's English department. "That's on television, of Paul Kennedy told the Lincoln County board of education. Mr. Kennedy reported to the board that studies show the average pre-schooler spends more than 64 per cent of his waking hours watching television, more than a stu- dent spends in the classroom in a four-year university course. By the time the pre-schooler gets to high school, he has spent hours in the class- room and hours watching TV, during which time he has seen com- mercials. The average person will spend 10 full years watching television by the time he dies, Mr. Kennedy said. Mr. Kennedy said the ability to find instant entertainment has created a problem for teachers, since there is no fast way to complete the education process Mr. Kennedy said the socie- ty of today is one in which everyone learns that he has access to almost anything he wants in instant form. "It is a society in which a public school can report that over 40 per cent of the children come from single- parent homes." Mr. Kennedy said that stu- THE BETTER HALF dents going to school today cannot be compared with students of 10 years ago. More than 95 per cent of stu- dents are staying in school longer than ever before, he said. Although the number re- maining in school had in- creased, the number on the honors lists had not. "The goal today is to include, not exclude, in education. This has meant that teachers have had to ad- just their day-to-day goals."

"You no longer have the tension that you hac in an all-broad jail." Both sexes wish more hours could be spent in mixed com- pany. "We hardly get to see said one male, "but I guess it's because there aren't very many of them in here yet. But it's better than look- ing at sour pusses and pin- ups." The change was an attempt to break the artificial environ- ment that surrounds prisons, said Mr. Brenner. "We were snickered at by the rest of the institutions in the province when we introduced the program. They kept asking us who was going to perform the first marriage and when was the first baby going to be born, but I think the program has proven said deputy warden Barry Rafuse. He said a new type of leader has emerged, with a well-edu- cated man who is successful with women replacing the old tough guy Mr Brenner said the changeover has presented no problems. "We have run into guys and girls holding hands and the occasional kiss has been stolen, but as long as we put a damper on this, things will stay in control." "We go to the library to- gether and we have our ex- ercise program said one woman. "We also go to church and to shows, but the guys sit on one side and the girls on the other. I guess that's because of a lack of supervisory staff." USE FRESH SPICES OTTAWA (CP) Use fresh spices every year for home pickling, as they tend to lose flavor when stored too long, says the food advisory service of Agriculture Canada Whole spices give a better color and flavor than ground spieces and should be tied loosely in a cheesecloth bag and removed after cooking.
