Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TllMday, LETHBRIDGE HERALD-18 Family reunited after 16 years of separation THE BETTER HALF By Barnes ST. AGATHA, Ont. (CP) Ray -Wilson remembers standing on a Kitchener street in 1958, waving and crying as his little brother and sister were taken away for adoption. An aunt had tried to keep the six children together but it was too much for her. But recently the children, ranging in age from six months to 15 years when an automobile crash killed their parents, held' a reunion at the home of the oldest brother Doug, now 31. "When you're brother and sister you just have to look at each other and you said Ray, a 28-year-old Guelph, Ont. carpenter. He, Doug and Bob, now 30, were too old for adoption when the family was orphaned. They went through a variety of foster homes, always keeping in touch with one another until Bob moved to Vancouver in 1965. It took the family baby, 16- year-old Debbie (now Cathy Thomas) of Cambridge, Ont. to instigate the reunion. After two years of letters and telephone calls to find everybody, Doug and Ray took Debbie to see James (now Patrick Downey) and their sister Kathy, both adopted by the same Chatham, Ont. family. Parent, child sex talks tense LONDON (Reuter) Parents too embarrassed to tell their offspring about the birds and bees might consider teaching the facts of life to the children of friends instead, Britain's Family Planning Association suggested Mon- day. "Because of the many con- scious and unconscious ten- sions associated with child- parent it said, "parents often say how.much easier it is to discuss sexual matters with other people's children than with their own. "It almost seems that if parents switched children for this purpose everyone would benefit."

John Gerla Returning Officer "I get about 17 miles to a gallon, and if Harriet is with me I also get about words." Rockefeller girl finds replacement for flush toilet ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) A member of the Rockefeller family wants to put a clivus multrum in every United States home. "I am quite sure that something had better replace the flush toilet in the next 10 years, something that doesn't use water or lose the nutrients in human says Abby Rockefeller, 31. The daughter of New York banker David Rockefeller and niece of Vice-President-designate Nelson Rockefeller is pres-, ident of Clivus Multrum U.S.A. She has started production of the device she hopes will replace that Victorian invention, the flush toilet. The clivus multrum is the 30-year-old Swedish invention of Rikard Lindstrom for composting human waste without unslightliness or odor. Clivus is the Latin word for inclining, referring to the incline of the bottom of its tank, and multrum is a composite word in Swedish meaning composting room. The clivus requires no water, no chemicals and no energy to operate. It is a large tank in which toilet and kitchen wastes decompose for several years, producing a small amount of odorless humus which can be returned to the soil. The liquid and gas in the wastes escape through a roof vent. The flush toilet is not a minor environmental offender, said Miss Rockefeller. "It is doing as much harm to our water as the automobile is to our she said. Three to eight gallons of water are used per flush and the water turns the waste nutrients into polluters that cause eutrophication. Production of clivus multrums began here in July at the rate of four a week and they sell for Although the initial cost is high, Miss Rockefeller said the clivus multrum would have long-range economic benefits. It reduces household water use by 50 per cent and has no mov- ing parts, so no maintenance is needed. On a community basis, it makes a central sewage treatment plant unnecessary. Such a plant for a community of only 500 people costs about million, she said. For now, she is concentrating on marketing the clivus mul- trum in New England. But the device has attracted the attention of the Environ- mental Protection Agency and it is conducting tests on it. The Lethbridge Family YMCA Evelyn Whitely, a Volunteer in the pre-school program, is shown here teaching mueic to a group of boys and girls. This is just one of many varied activities available at the Family YMCA. The YMCA turns no one away because of inability to pay. The Lethbridge Family YMCA is a United Way agency. From the funds received in the 1973 campaign it received More is needed to sustain its services.

The muscle behind the system. Faster starts. Improved performance. Fewer service intervals. Lower maintenance and operating costs. The system includes GM's new High Energy Electronic Ignition, another important engineering breakthrough, which can deliver up to 35.000 volts- more volts than conventional breaker point ignition systems. Since it can deliver higher voltages, it can give you quicker starts with less drain on the battery. Even in damp or wet weather. With the High Energy Ignition System and the use of unleaded fuel, spark plug life of up to 22.500 miles can bo expected. What's more, there is neither condenser nor points to require periodic replacement. That alone should save you money on tune-ups. We want you to buy what you like, and like what you buy! Canada The rest of the system. Radials. Longer life. Better performance. Improved operating economy. Steel-belted Radial Tires are standard on all 1975 GM Passenger Cars. They're engineered to provide the most desirable balance between mileage, traction. handling, noise and appearance. They offer better traction in snow and wet. plus lower rolling resistance. A system with a warm heart. Faster warm-ups. In cold weather, an automobile engine needs more gasoline during starting and. warm-up to overcome the gasoline's slower vaporization. In 1975. most GM passenger car engines have a new Fast Warm-up Carburetion that allows the choke to disengage faster. This means von can reallv streJrh vonr gasoline dollar.
