Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 19, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor pOR THE RECORD New management take- over in women's wear as yet unannounced to the public is causing mild havoc in some city homes women are receiving account notices on a store they don't have an account with we'll hope the women get hold of the bills first, unless they manage their own money. Toss-up who is more ignorant of the law, kids or parents according to the Highways Traffic Act, 14- and 15-year-olrls cannot carry passengers on their motorbikes. This is either unknown by young drivers or ig- nored according to an amendment to Bill 5 of the Highways Traffic Act which was passed in 1907 (three years Governors are no longer a requirement. These set speed limits on the number of miles per hour that 14- and 15-year-olds could ride. The speed set at that time was 30 m.p.h.This could be the answer to Aid. Ferguson's concern over the number of accidents among this age group. It seems unlikely that the right to drive will be taken away from young drivers, but perhaps limita- tions would be more acceptable to the government, not the drivers. Drivers and passengers must wear helmets and this regulation is pretty well adhered to. The passen- ger one would seem not to be. As long as the public is concerning itself with motorbikes, it might cast an eye at bicycles. Many adults are returning to bicycling, and of course a look at any school ground shows they are not diminishing in number there, either. No one, however seems to be using bicycle lights after dark. It's nothing short of stomach-churning to pick up a kid on a bike in your headlights riding about 15 inches from your front fender at right angles to your path on the road. Obviously the kids don't have lights, nor the money to buy them, but then why are they out after dark? It's too easy to coast along without an accident saying, well it wasn't really necessary. Because after a child has been killed, the cry will be "why didn't someone do Every parent presumably has control over a child's use of a bicycle and the individual must be respon- sible for the safety of that child. Traffic is an increasing problem, simply because of its increasing numbers. Like the old adage, you can put a driver behind a wheel, but you can't keep his foot off the gas. or something like that.

The store budget allots each month from the store pro- ceeds to the YW. Mrs. R. J.

"After all, a person can even oe fat and still be malnour- said Margaret Pope nutrition consultant for the fed- eral food and drug directorate, Ottawa. She was one of several food and drug directorate personnel who attended a recent Consum- ers' Association of Canada meeting here. During inter views on nutrition in Canada, they made the following points: recent study of New- foundland school children showed that 39 per cent ate diets considered poor or fair rom a nutrition viewpoint. even more recent study of nearly Ontario Grade S students showed 39 per cent of rays and 65 per cent of girls A-ere eating diets classed as >oor by nutritionists. About 400 cases of rickets, bone disease caused by lack of vitamin D and leading to legs or knock knees in children, were discovered in Montreal and Toronto hospi- tals in one year. Tests on livers of appar- ently healthy adults who died in accidents showed that stores ol vitamin A, necessary for good eyesight, were abnormally low. ARE DIETS CHANGING "This is why it is so impor- tant that the national nutrition study, which began in June, be said Dr. R. A. Chapman, director-general of the directo- rate.

BILLY 9 months Son of MR. and MRS. W. DEMERS CALGARY study will involve about Canadians. Survey teams will do the study on a random sam- ple of persons in the five re- gions of Canada. Medical and dental checkups will be carried out and a 25- minute interview will try to get information on specific dietary habits. Dr. Chapman said nutrition- ists suspect that the dietary habits of Canadians are chang- ing. He mentions three factors that may be involved. "There is a trend away from the three normal meals-a-day consisting of the traditional food 'groups recommended in food guides for good he said. "As well, there is an increas- ing interest in the development of substitutes for traditional foods, such as substitute milks (a new synthetic product) and substitute meats. "Finally, there is an increas- ing and significant use of new foods that have no traditional counterpart and of the so-called 'instant meals'." SEEK ACTION NOW The nutrition study will pro- vide the basis for new public health programs1 and new food and drug regulations, Dr. Chap- man said. Not that the directorate Is waiting for three years to take action, said Miss Pope. It is already urging that vi- tamins D and A be added to milk. "It will be much cheaper than vitamin supplements and reach all babies if supplied in she said. "The cost is peanuts compared to buying supplements." Some provinces already have legislation that permits the vi- tamins to be added. NATIONAL POST Mrs. Anne Slater representing the Lethbridge Ladies Auxiliary to the Army, Navy and Air- force was elected secretary to the Dominion Command at the 30th biennial held in Van- couver recently. President is Mrs. B. Thompson of Cal- gary. Other officers are Mrs. E. Ziegler, past president; Mrs. W. Elliott, Vancouver, B.C. first vice- president; Mrs. K. Crawford, Montreal, Que. second vice-president; Mrs. M. Rogers, Toronto, Ont. third vice-president; Mrs. P. McCallum, Winnipeg, Man. fourth vice-president; Mrs. B. Hollinshead, Edmon- ton, treasurer.

Mrs. Cam Hay, one of the store volunteers, said afternoon hours from 1 to 4 were ade- quate during the summer months. Now it often becomes very crowded with so many people shopping for winter clothes that the hours will have to be extended. Effective Oct. 1, the new hours will be Monday, Tucs-- day, Thursday, Friday and Sat- urday from to a.m. and I to 4 p.m. There will also be night shopping Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. People may bring clothes, either for donation or commis- sion of 50 per cent of the sell- ing price. The rent has gone forcing the YW to change to 40 per cent for the owner and 60 per cent for store proceeds Workers in the store stress donations instead of commis- sion. They said the clothes sell for such a small amount, any- way, that people could help the YW immensely by donating items of all lands. Mrs. Vi Douglas, the store's only paid worker, said the sup- port from out-of-town people is nearly half the total patronage. A fitting room is featured in the store which Mrs. Fairfield said is very popular among the patrons. "Our crowning touch." she added. In the basement are racks, boxes and bundles of clothes waiting to be sorted and priced. On one Saturday alone, 17 bundles were brought in, 'said Mrs. Douglas. But clollies and other items are always needed. "It is surprising but shop-lift- ing in the store is very lim- ited. We really are said Mrs. Fairfield. One of the workers said a lot of students come and buy large garments and then remodel them. Some come back to mcd- el their clothes and they aro very smart looking, she said. NEW TO YOU Volunteer workers left to right Mrs. Donald Bagozzi and Mrs. I. A. Flaa model some of the clolhes for sale in ihe YWCA's New To You Shop, 408 13 St. N. The store is always filled with such i lemj os clothes of all sizes and styles, coals, shoes, hats, cribs, and jewelery. Says CWL Meeting Speaker Poor Attitude To Welfare TORONTO (CP) Rev. Pat- rick Kerans asked whether the poor must be deserving before they should be given help and the answer was coming out 'yes1 at a meeting of the Catho- lic Women's League of Canada. One delegate said. "When people are on welfare they ex- pect everything but don't you think they ought to do some- thing themselves to better the human condition." Father Kerans suggested that most middle class people need to change their attitudes toward the poor. He and Grant Maxwell led a session on the problems of pov- erty to open the CWL's annual meeting. About 300 dele gates are attending. Mr. Maxwell and Father Kerans are co-directors of the social action department of the Canadian Catholic Confer- ence in Ottawa. The CWL is studying poverty with a view of finding acceptable ways to help solve problems. Father Kerans told them they, with other comfortable people, must learn to share power. "We need a change of heart but that's not easy. We kind of like it the way it is. This sys- tem has many consolations for us." He and Mr. Maxwell said the poor do not want handouts but need the kind of help that will helo them be self-sufficient. They suggested that league members might be able to of- fer advice on running an or- ganization.
