The Lethbridge Herald THIRD SECTION Wednesday, September 26, 1973 Pages 25 to 36 The Herald- Family The Grab Bag by Maureen Jamieson S3! NEW breed ot run- away quite different from the youth lusting after adventure is appearing on the Canadian scene Vanishing wives are joining the ranks of liberated women who find the shackles of fami- ly life unbearable. Those women who traditionally chose to stay with their men and children for better or worse, now are more inclined to walk away from unpleasant domestic situations A number of runaway wives admit they would not have left five vears ago. Women who question their social roles seem less willing blindly to accept their fate Sometimes, violent husbands give their wives emough im- petus to swap a secure family lite for independence Roy Hundleby of the Greater Victoria Citizens' Counselling Service claims the change is explained by a new social climate, and cites the cases of Anne and Cathy as examples Anne ran three miles in the ram one day, leaving behind a husband and two sons Anne's husband physically abused her, but refused to admit he had a problem. She waited 24 years to leave Cathy also waited several years, but finally left after her husband tried to kill her He locked her in a trailer and rammed it with a gravel truck Cathy took her three sons with her when she left. "We grew up with the idea that women were for keeping the marriages, but our ideas are changing says Mr. Hundleby I'm not sure if it is a not-so- subtle hint, but a copy of Weight Watchers Program Cookbook appeared on my desk this week. The book by Jean Nidetch. the slender, former size 44 housewife, features 675 new recipes plus menus and the complete program used by this particular weight-control organization After leafing through the pages, I've come to the conclusion that dieting can't be all bad. The book lists recipes for things -like chocolate meringue pie, cheese and onion quiche and frozen strawberry cream, along with potato salad and Chinese chicken with pineapple.

Foster and Scott Ltd., 299 Yorkland Blvd. Willowdale, Ont Whether you're posing for a picture or just thinking of good things to eat, 'cheese' is bound to bring on a big, bright smile Last year, smiling Canadians consumed about 298 million pounds of cheese, two-thirds of it cheddar. THE BETTER HALF Cheddar cheese is made from whole milk and is graded according to flavor, texture and color It must conform to set standards for fat and moisture content Mild cheddar is ripened for two to three months before it is sold, medium for four to five months, and old cheddar at least nine months Cheese of all types adds high quality protein and calcium to family meals, as well as flavor pizzazz These are just two of the many good reasons for substituting cheese main dishes for meat, or by combining it with smaller quantities of meat. And here is a pair of delicious family-type dishes sure to please just about everybody Macaroni and Cheese- stuffed Tomatoes 12 medium tomatoes (about 3 Ibs.) 2 tbsp flour tsp. salt '2 tsp dry mustard 1 cup milk cups (6 oz.) grated cheddar cheese 3 cups cooked macaroni (IVz cups or 6 oz. un- cooked) 1-3 cup buttered bread crumbs Cut a slice off stem end of each tomato.

She drives a small Fiat car. She has two older and two younger brothers All are friends of Prince Charles. The Wellesley family has exten- sive links with he succeeded the seventh duke recently, Jane's father was known as the Marquess of Jane speaks per- fect Spanish The family spends a great deal of time at its Spanish es- tate near Granada and gossip columnists were saying here that Lord John Wellesley. the third son. may become engaged to a member of the Domecq sherry family The first time Jane and Charles were seen together in public was in the royal box at last year's Royal Tourna- ment Until recently, Charles was most frequently seen dat- ing Lucia Santa Cruz, daugh- ter of a former Chilean am- bassador, but she now has be- come engaged.

But reports in estab- lishment circles suggest the heir to the British throne would probably have to choose a royal-born wife. Charles himself in that TV interview conceded that a princess would probably fit the role better The Duke of Wellington and Lady Jane herself have both strongly denied the rumor, published in the mass-circula- tion News of the World, that Jane may be the next Queen of England Jane said here: "There is no truth in the story and I don't know where the rumor came from. I do know Prince Charles but so do a lot ot other young girls." Buckingham Palace dis- missed the story as "pure speculation" But that was also the official line on Prin- cess Anne's romance with Mark Phillips until the sur- prise announcement from Balmoral in May. By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor The role of the male nursing orderly has changed drastical- ly in the past few years, ac- cording to Olive Faulds, direc- tor of nursing at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospital. At one time, she said, orderlies "were kind of push- ed into jobs they weren't trained to do. It was very frustrating for both the hospital and the orderly "But now they have orderly schools with a 30-week the same as certified nursing aides. "This really makes everybody's life easier, because you can hire people who are already trained. You don't have this hassle of train- ing people on the job "The new role is much more satisfying." Mrs. Faulds claimed. "There is much more direct patient care than formerly, when the orderly was at the beck and call of all nurses. "Now is he is assigned to a unit head and takes his orders direct from her. His job is now similar to a CNA. and has become more specialized "Since he now stays in one place and is looking after a specific group of patients, he does things like taking blood pressures, temperatures, and this kind of thing. "He's also playing a bigger role in taking care of female Mrs. Faulds pointed out, "which is really in line with CNAs looking after male patients "At the present time we have to gear this to patients' wishes, but there is no way a female patient should feel more embarrassed than a male with a female nurse or CNA looking after him. "The orderly now is a full- fledged member of the nurs- ing team, and I think he feels this way which he didn't before. The change in the orderly's status, said Mrs Faulds. came in 1970. when the hospital began to use "progressive patient care nursing unit which separates patients into intensive, above average, average and minimal levels of care. "This provides for much more personalized care of Mrs. Faulds ex- plained. "And it's nicer for all the very ill patients to be together Also, patients who are recovering "are not then disturbed by nurses running in and out of the room to give care to the more ill Orderlies are primarily employed in intensive and above-average care wards, she pointed out. as the needs of these patients are greater than those at the minimal care level One of the ten registered nursing orderlies at LMH is Carl Pickles He has been working at the hospital for the past 10 years, and wrote his exams from there. There's a big difference." in the work since the changeover. Mr Pickles agreed 'It's enjoyable to work now It's more what teach in the schools In this unit we mainly concentrate on a group of patients. Mr Pickles, who is second uce president of the Alberta Association of Registered Nursing Orderlies, said there are some 900 registered orderlies throughout the province, about 18 of them in this city. He will be in Red Deer Oct 4 and 5 to attend the association's annual convention Along with the regular business meetings he will attend workshops on orthopedics and urology "We've noticed quite a change since formal training." said Mrs Faulds "We've noticed a tendency for orderlies to upgrade themselves hold workshops and attend in- service programs "I hope we never have to go back to the day where we train our own1" Recent guest of Mrs. Clara Matson of Lethbridge were her sister.
