Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 20, 1973 Multiple sclerosis mvsterv disease The individuality and mystery ot multiple sclerosis was stressed at last evenings' meeting of the Lethbridge Multiple Sclerosis Society. Mrs. Edna LaForge of Ed- monton, executive director of the prairie region, stated that MS is "as individual as the in- dividual that has it is and that's just exactly how wide open the scope of research is as well She attended the session which marked Canada's 25th anniversary tor the MS socie- ty as guest speaker and attempted to explain pasc and present research on the dis- ease which strikes young adults. "Those age groups most usually affected range from the teens to the 40's." said Mrs. LaForge, ''and there are 1600 MS patients in Alberta alone. "It's a disease which affects the myelin shpatn. which covers' the nerves of the THIS THURSDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 20th Sponsored by ladfos' Aid of St. Pstsr tut St. Paul's church STARTS P.M.

The breakdown causes scar tissue 'to be formed and this in turn impairs the transfer of nerve impulses from the brain to the muscle. "There is no ex- plained Mrs. LaForge, "and doctors cannot tell which mus- cle or limb, voluntary or in- voluntary may be affected." MS in itself is not con- sidered a painful disease, but rather produces a numbness may be progressive and cause paralysis "Before the initiation of the national society, MS patients were hidden in hospitals, in their homes and not talked continued Mrs. LaForge. "But today, through research and public education and understanding. MS'ers are being put into the working community and are continuing to lead interesting lives." She added that local associations play a vital part in the lives of such patients through the services provided and the outside interests which are made available The objectives of the society are to provide patient services such as wheelchairs where needed, home visits, club par- ties and activities: to educate both the lay and professional person, and to provide suppor- tive research. All multiple sclerosis societies are funded through United Appeal monies and outside canvassing is not per- mitted Local chapter members are "encouraged to relate to MS'ers and to fill m as much as possible within the home of patients Mrs LaForge added that a major problem is the lack of help from persons who do not have a familv member yftected bv MS So oi out volunteers tune MS within the family, and thai in itself cuts down on their time and places a strain on their resources and capabilities in another person's home.1' "Our emphasis is always on said Mrs. LaForge, "and research dollars are never wasted. pART IV PICTURE QUIZ 5 POINTS Name this baseball superstar who is approaching Babe Ruth's record of 714 career home runs.

New art advisory group will aid Alberta talent A provincial arts advisory board which will report to government on arts in the province, will be formed within six months, Horst Schmid minister of culture, youth and recreation said Tuesday. r More credibility for university The University of Lethbridge Tuesday requested the province to do some advertising on its behalf throughout Alberta. University president Bill Beckel told James Foster, minister of advanced education, that "blatant advertising" cost the universi- ty its credibility. But if the province would assist in informing high school students about what is "it would he said.

The university claimed that beyond the Lethbridge region, "prospective students are almost totally unaware of the educational option provided by this university." The brief sought the assistance of the government "in articulating and advertising the univer- sity's existence, character and role." Mr. Foster suggested that the province may expand its careers information program to include more intensive advertising of career alter- natives to all senior high school strudents. Dr. Beckel said lack of par- ticipation by the portion of the province north of High River in a bursary program was in- dicative of how littJe the north knew about the liberal arts education available here. The university said it also served part-time students on a remarkably broad scale. "The university is most disap- the brief continued, "that the true nature and ex- tent of its service to the peo- ple of this region are frequent- ly misunderstood and oc- casionally misrepresented both within and beyond this immediate locality, and sometimes even by govern- ment spokesmen." Calendar The September meeting of the Lethbridge Council of Home and School Associations will be held at p.m. Mon- day at Galbraith School. All associations are urged to send their representatives and parents are reminded that everyone is welcome at coun- cil meetings whether belong- ing to an association or not. Mr. Schmid was replying to representatives of the Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge who requested the govern- ment to consider formation of such a group. In a brief presented to Mr. Schmid the council said an ad- visory group would aid ;n making the departmeit responsible to the needs and talents of all Albertans on an equitable basis They added such a group would aid in making the department's immediate ob- jectives and programs kr iwn to the arts groups The provincial body, to be formed in May, will be very similar to what the Lethbridge council is re- questing, Mr. Schmid said. The Lethbridge council, comprised of 37 member organizations, also requested the government to broaden its scholarships in such areas as performing arts, art displays and other exhibits. They added the government should "administer from their own resources" the ad- ministration of such programs, including the ad- visory board, "to the r >int of display or performance including travel arrange- ments, insurance, adver- tising, hotels and onward tran- smission." "This will permit, for ex- ample, an Allied Arts Council to sponsor local, district, national and international offerings in conjunction with its member the representatives said. To carry out the re- quirements as outlined it is necessary to plan And to plan well requires known and con- sistent financing policies by government, they added Jude Campbell AUZZA was never an enthusiastic traveller. He was born next door and moved several yards away to take up residence with me, and never bothered to stray far from his food dish. He occasionally chewed on people's feet, ankles and fingers; or gnawed on a fuzzy slipper if it was tossed aside by the owner. As a cat, he rated fairly well on the intelligence scale and according to my standards was a hardy eater. Twice he wound up on the receiving end of feline fisticuffs and twice had to be patched up by the vet. On those occasions, I found him a most unco-operative passenger who tore up and down the back seat of the car, dripping the odd drop of blood, yowling and searching for an open window to jump out. Of course, the indignities which he was subjected to while on the examination table didn't help his dis- position, and he soon dis- covered car-plus- thermometer equals yeech. So when the time came to transport Kauzza from the southside of town to the northside of town, I approach- ed the situation with caution. Being a person who dislikes seeing animals in any sort of discomfort, 1 proceeded to contact cat-owners and ask what moving method would be best and least upsetting. Some said he'd run away no matter what, others said he'd stay if he liked me and the rest swore that putting butter on his paws before the trip was the one and only way to ensure his remaining at the new house I listened sadly to the first bunch, the second group made me smile and the butter- advocates had me grinning incredulously When the moment of truth arrived, a very active Kauzza greeeted me at the old house and I made my final it was butter for all I worth. Struggling cat in arms and.? patty of butter in hand, I to the car muttering into fur in an effort to calm him down. 1 The sound of the motor slamming of doors Kauzza skittering successfully) for the baclf seat, as I held onto both JMTO paws in attempts to.splattesrf on the butter.- t He threw a furtive look ray. way just before he dashea under the seat, and refusedlq budge even after the car caflMg to a stop. i Following some subtle suasion and a quick grab, 5 carried him into the nelir house and watched as he shdf for the living room leaving trail of butter-spots. Morsels of meat did nothing to entice him from behind UK couch; a saucer of milk rejected and his favorite enemy a fur brush lay un- touched at the entrance of shelter. Calling to him over and'over made no difference what" soever and in final desperai tion I decided to offer him slippered foot to chew (double, That was just too much, to resist and I soon felt a sharp pain where he'd bait, and I inched him forward by dragging my injured away bit by bit. Once he'd thoroughly at-. tacked the member, he stun back into hiding. So far, Kauzza has made several brief appearartcei; usually when a bare foot of ankle is indiscriminate, enough to stand next to lair. S But lacking infinite pattencf'. and somewhat lacking healthy shreds of skin below my I think he'll have' to resigfc himself to venturing Out without the lure of a chewable fairly soon or be prepared for another journey back to home base.
