Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta J.8 THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Thimdny, 18, 1972---------------- U A win program gets fewer complaints EDMONTON CCP) Oppo-, silion to the introduction of j family life education in the pub-' lie scliool system appears to have disappeared, Dr. K.

Family Life education "is moving ahead slowly and with ivenvlwlming support as it he said. The program, known as per- spectives for living, was of- fered in 11 classes in tliree senior high schools and in 12 classes in junior liig'n schools during 1971-72. Dr. Grierson said he expects these mimbers to more than double during the current, 1972- 73 school year. When a program of family life education was first pro- posed, it was recommended for all grades as a compulsory subject. But, after a series of stormy public hearings about two years ago, it was decidctf to restrict the initial program to junior and senior high schools on an option basis. The program is inlroducet only with the support of the community and extensive orien tation and in-service training is provided for teachers. Par ents have the opportunity to view the materials used. POPULATION EXPLOSION With the birth of first Canaan litter in Canada this month, the population of this breed of dog has increased from three to eight. Mrs. Suzan Horovilch of Barnwell imported the pups' mother, Massada's Eve, from Isreal this year. The Canoan is the only breed of dog native to the Holy Land, and has a history stretching back at least years. Shown enjoying three of the puppies are, left, three-year-old Vivian Horovitch and Lori Simon, 5. Bill Groenen, photo Xffi Just Jude Safe, economical procedures Outpatient surgery under discussion OTTAWA (CP) Some medical experts believe that many medical and surgical procedures traditionally call- ing for hospital stay might be done on an outpatient just as safely but with less disruption lo patients' lives and less cost to the taxpayers. The problem has been to de- cide just which cases could lie done outside hospital or with- out an overnight stay and a recent issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal concentrates on the issue. An editorial in the issue, ti- tled Curbing the Costs, said determined efforts are being made within the profession to counteract a trend to treat every illness in hospital. It de- scribed six recent studies and two other articles in the same issue presented further evi- dence that doctors are taking steps to treat patients outside hospital more frequently. Dr. Michael T. Richards of Edmonton described experi- ences with 200 cases in which uterine curettage was carried out in the doctor's office rather than in hospital. Curel- tagc, often called dilation, in- volves the scraping of the in- terior walls of the womb. CITES ADVANTAGES Dr. Richards said careful assessment of each individual must be made, based on age, general condition, diagnosis of the specific condition and .so on. But for certain women there were good reasons for not going to hospital. "The advantages of this ap- proach, in addition to eco- nomic conditions, are readily apparent. The saving of time to the patient is important for the woman is not obliged to lie absent from her employ- ment or lo spend two to fivo days away from home and domestic responsibilities. "She is spared the anxiety which the need lor any hospi- tal admission is likely to pro- voke and which is even greater when, as so com- City of Lethbridge community services Public Skating will commence at the Adams Park Ice Centre on Friday evening, from to p.m., Saturday, Sept. 30th from to p.m. and to p.m. and Sunday afternoon, Oct. 1 from to p.m. For further information contact (he Community Services Department at 328-2341 extension 236. monly happens, there is a delay before the operation can be In another article. Drs. A. A. Yuzpe, II. II. Allen and J. A. Collins of London, Ont., described the results of sterili- zation operations on women performed on an out- patient basis at Victoria Hos- pital. The hospital wanted to provide women with safe and effective methods of steriliza- tion hut without lying up loo many hospital beds. Adapting the hospital proce- dures so women could have the operation and yet go home (he same day has proved suc- cessful, the article said. Dy JUDE TURIC YEARS AGO, when wine-making was the big October event in our household, purple toes considered the mark a champion. Getting purple toes was quite an accomplishment and required stamina, along with pretty insensitive 'feet. Grapes were originally meant to be crushed in good old-fashioned way, sunshine, near the good old Mediterreanean. But initiative had lo take over, and the annual stomping took place on the cold concrete of our basemen. Steps leading to a wine-stomp included wearing the oldest of clothes, preparing the floor for grape stains and washnig down the gunmboote. Great purple hunks of grapes, dripping juice on all, would be placed in the half barrel and one ad- venturous soul would don his gumboots, jump in and begin the squishing. Stepping on grapes is not as easy as it may sound, as they tend to be slippery and prefer to be) left alone rather than crushed. But after several bouts with two or tliree differ- ent sets of gumboots, the juice would be ready for the pouring and final fixings. The last box of grapes would signal the time for removing boots, and allowing all who dared lo climb in barefoot. Mushy grapes, ice coltl juice and prickly vino leftovers together surpassed the ooziness of mud and sand, and left the stomper with a unique memory. Along with a memory, it also left one with thor- oughly chilled feet, partially stepped-on grapes be- tween the toes, and a purple shade that bordered on the obstinate when you tried to wasli it off. Happily, post-stomping weather was usually cool and dictated the wearing of slacks which graciously covered the purpleness about the ankles. Admittedly, the best part was tasting the fruits of our labor. More family news page 20 JACKPOT BINGO This Thursday Evening, Sept. 28th Spomored by LadieV Aid of Si.
