Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta IB THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Soplomber It, 1970 For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor QROCERY SHOPPERS come in two sizes, Hie loaded-cart and the food in hand. The food in hand types are usually on their way to catch a plane or beat the kids homo for lunch or some other emer- gency. What inevitably happens is that the food-in- handers end up at the longest check-out. There are always 10 check-outs not in use at your average supermarket. (They're for Christmas or other special occasions.) Theoretically it should be quite simple to deter- mine which is the quickest check-out. The person with the fewest number of items will be finished first. The smart shopper knows from sad experience that this is not so. The checkers themselves are the first point to consider. Some are faster than others. Some know the prices of those exotic goodies the guy in front has just bought when his wife wasn't with him. The jar wasn't marked (in stores which still mark prices) and he never thought to ask before he decided to buy. A sign of friendship between checker and cus- tomer should be avoided like the plague. The checker won't stop to talk, but somewhere between calling out the prices and trying to keep from ignoring the friend, she loses something in efficiency. Next in line is the shopper who thinks of her gro- ceries as conversation pieces. She has to justify her purchases to the checker (maybe a dry run for home) who doesn't care if the buy on dried prunes was spectacular. She probably doesn't know how to cook the artichokes either. If you're really not thinking, you'll find yourself standing behind a couple of kids who lock up the chain to the checkout to practise Tarzan. Your ice cream is dripping by now, the checker is busy, so is Mamma, and a dull grey cloud is heavy over your head. Ah, here you are, you've picked your wicket, the customer in front of you has her groceries totalled and her wallet, no checkbook in hand. So while the customer is off to get a check cashed, the checker takes a breather and you just strive for another breath, a deep one. Fortunately the human element is not lacking in the smooth impersonal shopping face of the super- market most loaded-cart customers mil step aside for the items-in-hand customer a touch of kindness. And if you've been out enjoying the gorgeous scenery the last day or so may I leave you with a closing from a letter sent to a staffer from Jerry Gambill of the Mohawk Nation. this letter finds you with the beauty of the autumn season before your eyes."

Of Ynle, Centre Hair Length No Problem Few Restrictions On School Togs By CHRISTINE PUIIL Herald Staff Writer Upon entering one of the local high schools or junior highs, the sight which greets your eyes is certainly not col- umns of students filing to class with uniform hair-do's, starch- ed dresses and shined boots. Currently schools are stress, ing individualism. This does not only include the basic attitude in schools but also withdrawing now unueeded regulation con- cerning student behavior and dress. All the secondary schools have student committees which decide dress codes and handle their own problems. Today's youth, at first glance, appear to be a generation of sweaters, jeans and sandals. In or out of school, there is no exception. It was only four years ago that Winston Churchill was the first school in Lethbridge lo al- low its girls to wear slacks in class, but they must be dress slacks only. Now, Churchill and Catholic Central High School and Pater- i son Junior High are the only ones which restrict slack wear- ing for girls to anything besides jeans. Wilson Junior High will' not allow the girls to wear slretchics. All other schools allow any type. Father Wilson, acting prin- cipal of CCHS, said the students are protesting Hie restriction of jeans in the school but these disputes will be taken before the student-faculty committee. They also only nllow slacks lor girls on cold days, and rule hat skirts and dresses 'are to be of modest length and fit. Lelhbridgo Collegiate has no Knee Lengths For Spring? LOS ANGELES (AP) The California fashion world in gen- eral is saying the mini is dead and that the midi and around- the-knce hemlines should be the styles come next spring. But at least one style expert thinks that what's really dead is the mid-calf midi. About IliO fashion editors and garment buyers attending the 20th annual California Fashion Creators press week were told Wednesday by designer Stan Hirsch: "Retaihvise the midi is dead. It was written into the ground by fashion writers for five months before it got into the stores." Several members of a discus- sion group made up of garment industry figures disagreed with Hirsch, saying hemlines were lengthening bit by bit. "Longer clothes are said designer Helen Bass. "That's a fact." During the Wednesday show- ing of spring 1971 pantsuits and dresses by California designers, hemline lengths hovered below the knee, at mid-calf or ankle- length. No mini was shown. Turquoise, green, orange, brown and yellow were among the popular colors shown for spring wear. regulations at all, except sti dent honor in grooming. Tli variations of hair styles are ui limited from a ball of fuzz, straight to the waist and bac to completely shaved. None of the schools allo1 bare feet which, of course, i in standing with the regula tions for public buildings. George Wilson, principal Paterson Junior High, said tha hair length is of no importanc but he doesn't like to see it in face as it is a healt hazard. He continued by saying tha boots with steel clickers jackets with studs cause dam age to furnishings "and he responsible for school equip ment. These cases are individually. A few of the schools express ed a desire to work more closi ly with parents in communit involvement. "After all, it's'th parents who buy the clothes, said one principal.

Friends arc invited to call Saturday Consumer Post May Be Woman's Says Schreyer WINNIPEG (CP Premier Ed Schreyer has told a meeting of the Manitoba NDP commit- tee that a woman may soon be appointed assistant deputy minister in the Department of Consumer and Corporate Af- fairs. The Premier said the appoint- ment would be made "not be- cause she is a woman, but be- cause she is qualified to take that position." He did not say whether he had anyone in particular in mind for the post. Following Mr. Schreyer's speech, and after te had left the meeting, the committee meeting was disrupted when three women charged that it was undemocratic. Sheila Kusiak, mother of two and a student at the Univer- sity of Manitoba, said she ob- jected to the time of day of the meeting, and on the week- day date on which it was call- ed, for the election of officers. She charged that mothers, professional and working wo- men, students and women from rural constituencies could not be on hand because of the cir- cumstances of the timing. She told members that if thej -really wanted to be a commit- tee representing all Manitoba women, they should postpone their elections until the provin- cial NDP convention in late Oc- tober, when a meeting of all the women delegates could be held.
