Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE IFlHBRIDGE HIRAID Saturday, 9, 1972 -rami iv ing family Hie by MAUREEN JAMIESON One of the guys came charging relentlessly across the newsroom t'other day, pencil in one bony paw, large sheet of cardboard in the other and baring lus ferocious fangs in what he obviously believed to be friendly persuasion. The office pool, was once again in business. For a mere 25 cents I could become the proud possessor of a life-size active volcano, a mink coat, and a plastic bag filled with Grade A, ecology- approved organic garbage with which to start my very own compost heap. "Taking pity on my abysmal ignorance of every- thing connected with hockey, everyone within holler- ing distance felt free to offer advice on picking the winning combination. Suggestions covered a wide field. Immerse your body in water and count the teethmarks on the necks of passing Transylvanians count, the number of flat bicycle tires in Upper Baluchistan and divide by two take the square root of the number of grey hairs in the head of Julius Caesar. After serious consideration, I decided to bypass all proffered procedures and operate on the system which I had worked out with mathematical exactitude several years ago. It had failed at every turn but 1 knew that someday it would come out on top, hi spite of the law of averages which it had so far man- aged to ignore. Grasping a pencil firmly in my right hand, I closed my eyes, opened my mouth and made two quick passes over the list. With a swift, deft swoop the pencil plunged downward, jabbing a big black blob onto one of the squares. Surprisingly it worked, and I found myself raking in the quarters. Not that it mattered. I'd previously secured my investment by purloin- ing the envelope containing the kitty just in case so T couldn't lose either way, could I?

By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Armed soldiers carrying ashlighis were scouring the lottom o( the plane, Eliza- Bartman was told by her avelling companion. It WES a.m. and they >ad just landed in Leningrad. Miss Bartman, former dis- rict home economist in Lelh- rldge, was on a visit to Rus- a with the Professional Asso- atlon of the'Alberta Depart- ent of Agriculture. "Leningrad is she said. You know the story of the 900- ay seige is still with you there, amazing that the people lave stood so much." (The city was under seige by ierman troops from August Ml until January 1944. Many lousands died of starvation, ml much of the city was de- troycd by air and artillery 'We wonc'ored where were all he children. Our guide told us it's-the law that they be aken out of Leningrad and loscow (or the Mil's Bartman said. Children who do not wish to slay with relatives are placed jy the government, she explain- ed. "But I heard that the gov- ernment spies on families by s k i n g questions of the chil dren, so that parents can't say anything to their children. They have to be so careful.' MUCH TO SEE Russians "love to show Iheir country and rightly so Guides arc smartly dressei and personable. They were al women, the ones we cami across, and one we knew was professor of English at the uni versity in winter. "They have a lot to show, be cause they have the most teau tiful museums, for instance Wherever you go there ar relics of the past which ar really she said. "You can look out over th city and see those beautiful bi gold domes. I think they're mixture of gold and copper. Bu most of these cathedrals now turned into museums. "Another tiling was the pa aces. In Leningrad they ha The Hermitage, which was th czar's summer palace the Kremlin in Moscow." Women's elotliing was quite what she expected, Mis, Bartman explained. Whi "fabrics were si found that "on the whole, II dresses had shape and styl They wore but few pant suits were visible. Transportation, she said, Is mainly by trolley bus and op- erates on the honor system. "Almost everybody uses the bus, and the streets are very There are more cars in p. And there are about five uge buildings of the Stalin era, ut you never mention that lame. 'Moscow has a she id: "an underground system at's really fantastic. There e about 90 stations at various vels all beautifully ap- ilnted. Each one has an ex- bit of art in its various forms. 'We were taken to one sla- on, and the marble is beau- tul.. red and black and re en marble with crystal tandeliers. Another would fea- ure ceramic tile in wonderful corahiGmora ting chievemcnts of the people net; the Great October Hev- lution, "We didn't see people tatting and smiling and env lying each other. They were ery serious and seemed to ork and live in the same see- on of the city. "We saw day care liss Bartman said. "These are 11 scattered around .the. city, so he family doesn't liave to go ar to leave the children. There re kindergartens in Rus- caring for youngsters up i six years of age. "They are taught mental physical and aestlietic educa- tion, but the ministry of educa- tion found through experiment tliat there was no need to teach reading and writing to these cliildren. In fact it was better not to." FARMS OFF LIMITS The agricultural group had requested, and been granted, permission to see two state farms and to visit the All Union Institute of Animal Husbandry, Just outside of Moscow. "It had been all planned ,witH their Miss Bartman emphasized, but none of our agricultural authorities was permitted to view these places. She said in Russia they quite openly display their intention "l.o cormuer the world with Communism, "It seems ridiculous though. The audacity of these Commu- nist leaders to think they're go- ing to impose their ideals on others! "I don't think any of us will ever forget what it was like to leave Russia behind and get to Moscow than Leningrad, but there are not that many to be seen. UNMENTIONABLE NAME Miss Bartman considered "Moscow a brighter city than Leningrad.
