Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 12, 1970- For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor WHY DOES IT snow just as the fruit gets heavy on the trees rain just as you get the last of the'wash on the line blow just as you have the children lined up for a nice outdoors picture and do all three when you've planned a barbecue for eight little boys? Why does the teacher always want... the color of wool that you don't have the light bulb the day after you threw it away the cardboard roll from the wax paper when you just bought a new roll Mr. C. van Wyk, whose picture appears on this Tiage with a basket of beautiful fruit he grew in his own yard this year, makes pikers out of the city's pear trees. A couple of the little fellows even grew little pears outside the Car Park but they're just teensy ones, and they're green too. Mr. van Wyk says the secret's in the watering, fellow, all winter every time there's a mild spell. So dig out tiiat hose, Ken, and you and your tall friend, Stu, may have a good thing going for you on the side GOLDEN WEDDING Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kwaczek were honored recently at a dinner on the occasion of (heir 50 th wedding anniversary.

The drop-in aspect of the centre is no longer in existence or even being reconsidered, said co-director Brian Shaw. "A drop-in centre can't run ef- ficiently along-side other pro- grams." The two top floors of the house will be turned into a stu- dent co-op dwelling. Approxi- mately 10 to 12 university and college students will stay in the rooms using common kitch- en and living room facilities. These students must also be interested in the other pro- grams being run in the house. Co-directors Brian Shaw anc Brian Brindley are now taking applications from students in- terested in living there. The main project to be under- taken in the house will be a drug information centre which will start to be organized im- mediately. This weekend, the co-direct- ors will be visiting the Calgary Drug Information Centre to dis- cuss organization, staffing, problems and treatments. The local program will in- clude an information library, seminars and lectures, crisis ntervention and counselling. There will also be some work in a medical centre to work in conjunction with the drug cen- tre and other various work- shops designed for local youth. The Youth Services Council which operates the centre is currently preparing a brief re- questing additional funds which will be presented to various governmental bodies. Some research will be done in locating another site for a permanent local drop-in centre. In the spring, it is tentatively being planned that Odyssey House mil once again become a transient youth hostel.
