Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 30, 1970 win In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHL Herald Slaff Writer with tlie national policy changes regard ing birth control information and abortion, the new vogue in communities is setting up services re- lated to these topics. And Lethbridge is no different. A medical information centre concerned with sex education, birth control and abortion information is currently open for calls at 327-7766 Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7 to 10 p.m. Because of the lack of printed fact sheets, pamphlets and books in the local centre, it is strictly a referral agency with volunteers on the phones. People calling for information may remain anony- mous and are referred to doctors or the appropriate city resource person or agency. Those involved in setting up the centre say the reason such a service is needed is to be certain peo- ple are aware of their medical rights, and also know whom to turn to for various problems. if Ik- Many times patients do not know they can dis- cuss certain topics with their doctors, or that the doctors will help them find solutions and information. Already the centre has received calls regarding such questions as; applying for abortion and techni- cal information on male sterilization. Each case is told where information and advice is available for their specific problem. In my opinion, the only reason not all people pos- sess this knowledge is because they are too shy to ask the doctors themselves or enter the office of a service agency. So, how can referring them to the same agencies do much good? Chances are they still won't take that final big step in obtaining the information they seek. Once the medical information centre has obtained printed information, people may come to the office for research purposes. I don't think women are going to come to the office unless it is private and set aside from other functions. This privacy cannot be obtained in the existing location at 1001 2nd Ave. S. Funds however are a major problem so any move to other premises does not appear imminent. Yes, I feel the service is warranted because, some- how, people should all have the opportunity to get di- rection. But how will mature women respond to a youth- oriented project? It is obvious they need help because they have not started anything specific for themselves despite the apparent uniformed condition. Organizers of the centre hope to train volunteers through seminars, conducted by local resource peo- ple. I cannot understand these volunteers being able to counsel or inform people at the same level it has taken professionals years to obtain. I give the centre a hearty vote of approval for offering people this clear channel to the appropriate city service, but I hope the information library, sem- inars and educational programs can be given much more emphasis.

AND FRI Till 9 P.M. S H O E Alliludcs Slumping Block To Principals' Jobs Women Teachers Get Administration Course TOHONTO (CP) Count the proportion of teachers you know who are women. Then nsk yourself how many female school princi- pals you've met. Tlio Federation of Women Teachers' Associations of On- tario says that this year, in that province's public el- ementary schools, about 400 principals are probably half of those are in small rural schools. Slowly and cautiously, the federation is trying to help n handful of women interested in administration overcome what it believes sometimes is outright discrimination but more often is a set of atti- p e o p 1 c 's and their stacks the cards against them. WORN SHOELEATHER Proud of his parlicipaiion in the annual Optimist Club Hike for Tykes, Earle En- dresen, retiring president points out proof of his hike this year to Mrs. Douglas Dunlop, president of the Lethbridge and Distrct Assocation for the Mentally Retarded. On behalf of tne association she accepts from the club a cheque for represented in part by the Hike pro- ceeds. The donation will be used by the association for its work in the Sunrise Ranch program for adult retar- dates at Coaldale. Sixteen teachers from across the province attended a wccklong management seminar this summer and will continue to meet on six week- ends tliis winter. In order to take the course, they had to agree to apply for principals' jobs advertised in their districts. Florence Henderson and Shu-ley Stokes, the federa- tion's two executive assistants who organized the course, said school boards often blame the shortage of women principals on the fact that women don't apply for posi- tions advertised. "But we find that 75 per cent of the men didn't apply said Miss Henderson. "They were asked to apply." She is a former elemen- tary-school teacher from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont, who came up through the federation as a member and officer before becoming a paid federation employee. Mrs. Stokes, a teacher in Australia, edited a Canadian professional maga- zine. Impetus for the course came from a study, published last year, of career patterns of a random sample of the federation's members. It found that even women in- terested in administrative po- sitions often assumed they couldn't get far in the profes- sion. "Another thing that bothers many teachers is that they al- ready earn more than their husbands, and if they get a job with more status it llireatens bis masculinity and the Mrs. Stokes said. In the management semi- nar, where most of the volun- teers have Iccn-agc children, much of the fare is standard for any management course: group dynamics, objectives, leadership styles, budgeting, law. In addition, women princi- pals discuss their varying ex- periences. Other speakers drive home the need to set priorities: home and career, working with children and working with adults. "If your skills and satisfac- tions come from working with children, you're better off in a said Mrs. Stokes. For teachers interested in advancing professionally but not inclined toward adminis- tration, the federation plans a leadership course. There still arc .cases of women running into 19th cen- tury opposition: One of the principals who addressed the management seminar had to move from her home city in order to be promoted, after applying unsuccessfully for years. Within six months of moving to a large metropoli- tan system, she was appointed assistant principal and was principal of a large experi- mental school within a year.

Bulgarian Teaching Method Accelerates Learning TORONTO (CP) Two wo- men who have written a book ailed Psychic Discoveries Be- lind the Iron Curtain say they ave discovered a teaching method in Bulgaria that "could a t a p u 11 the undereducated .head in a year instead of a ecade." The women, Sheila Ostrander nd Lynn Schroeder, say the nethod was developed by Dr. gi Lozanov, director of the nstitute of Suggest o 1 o g y and in Sofia, Bui- aria. The women are currently en- aged in translating Dr. Loza- ov's system into English. Miss Ostrander, a native of 'innipeg, and Miss Schroeder, former editor of Mademoiselle magazine, spent several years ihind the Iron Curtain doing esearch for their book which ow is in its fourth printing. JNDREDS TEAM Miss Ostrander says that at ic Bulgarian institute records low hundreds of persons from I levels of society have arned entire two-year courses n as few as 20 days. Tests made years later show tat the students have retained ic material learned, she adds. The Lozanov technique, as ley describe the teaching sys- m, uses a muid-to-mind con- tact between pupil and teacher. Dr. Lozanov, who is a psychi- atrist and psychologist, de- scribes the teaching program as acquiring an actual sixth sense. Diapers Add Vi cup Baking Soda (o diaper pail fresh.
