Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LITHMIDOE HERALD WMMMWy, Apni a, iiu Ann Landers Dear AMI Landers: I am a homosexual. I've been hearing some talk about a new school, soon to be opened, called Lavender University. It is, of course, for homosexuals only, both male and female, and I think it's a fantastic idea. Unfortunately, there are very few places besides gay bars where lonesome, homosexuals can meet one another. Will you please get some information on Lavender U. and give me some facts? Thank you very much. And thank you, too, for your enlightened approach to those of us who are "different." Bay Area Admirer Dear Bay: "Lavender U." is scheduled to open in San Francisco later this year. The school will offer no degrees and will have no campus. The fees will be established by the faculty. Many classes will be held in the homes of the instructors until they are able to construct or buy a building. The courses they plan to offer are Greek literature, metaphysics, photography, opera appreciation, modern dance, jewelry-making, and hiking. One of the problems the innovators anticipate is that some heterosexuals might try to enroll. They say they want only homosexuals, but there is no way to make a person prove he is gay. I hope they don't spend too much time worrying about this "obstacle" since I seriously doubt that a school of this type would attract many straights. Dear Ann Landers: Whenever we meet another couple for cocktails, and the check arrives, my husband manages to leaf through his wallet just long enough so that the other fellow pays it. This embarrasses me to death. How can I get this clip artist to pay our way? Please suggest something subtle. Married A SfMge Dear MarrM: Sorry, but a guy whose hide is as thick as your husband's wouldn't respond to anything subtle. You'll have to hit him with a sledge hammer. Suggested line when the cheque appears: 'Oh, no THIS time my .husband is going to be the host. We were YOUR guests last time." Keep track and make the sponge alternate, whether he likes it or not. Dear ABB Landers: My boyfriend and I are both 17. We've. been hassling about drugs and I need somebody on my side. I tried grass a year ago. It was fun but I got mixed up a lot and forgot things, especially what time it was. My parents raised hell with me when I came in past curfew one night and I decided to knock it off. Now my boyfriend is into acid and insists there is nothing wrong with it. He claims "recent studies" have turned up no evidence that LSD is damaging to the chromosomes. He keeps bugging me to try it. I've heard that kids have died from bad trips. Let's have some facts. N. N. P. Dear N.: Your boyfriend is wrong. There is still some question about chromosomal damage from LSD (and also The dangerous aspects of dropping acid are the depressions following the euphoria ahd the hallucinations which sometimes return after several months. Many acid freaks have jumped off rooftops (thought they could and walked into traffic and in front of trains (believing they were LSD is dynamite. It can blow your mind. Leave it alone.

Over-medicating hazardous CHICAGO call for a program to educate the public that they do not need a shot or a pill every time they see a doctor is voiced in a recent issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. "The simple truth is many patients seen in the office of the general practitioner or internist need little, sometimes no, says the editor, Dr. Robert H. Moser. Over-medication occurs in the hospitals as well as in doctors' offices, and Dr. Henry L. Simmons and Paul D. Stolley call for more stringent review and control programs in hospitals to make certain that penicillin and other antibiotics are used properly. Most people who go to a doc- tor expect some medication, Dr. Moser said. They do not feel the doctor has completed his treatment until he gives them a shot or hands them a prescription. The doctor is busy, other patients are waiting, and the quickest way for him to end the visit is to write a prescription. This combination of circum- stances has resulted in the over-use of medications, espe- cially penicillin and other antibiotics, the Journal said. "Hundreds of thousands of patients may be unnecessarily exposed to the hazards of anti- biotics because o! their in- appropriate said Drs. Simmons and Stolley.

They said that more than half of all prescriptions written by physicians for the common cold are antibiotics or penicillin. The cold is caused by viruses, which are not affected by antibiotics. Recommendations for anti- biotic controls in hospitals are fourfold: 1. Each hospital should form a committee to monitor anti- biotic use. 2. The committee should de- velop individual guidelines for appropriate antibiotic usage both for treatment and prophylaxis (prevention of 3. The report of the antibiotic committee would be distributed internally to the medical staff and the executive committee. 4. There would be an annual review of antibiotic use by an outside consultant who would submit written recommenda- tions to the executive com- mittee. Duties shared by women sailors on hospital ship SOMERVILLE, N.J. (AP) Everything is shipshape on the Sanctuary, the first United States Navy vessel with women sailors as part of UK seagoing crew. That's the report from Sea- man Kathleen Pachomski, who is among the 55 to GC women sharing duties with the 450 male sailors on the 30- year-old hospital ship. The Sanctuary's recent goodwill mission to Haiti and Colombia was a two-way suc- cess, said the petite blonde sailor during a snore leave at home here. The trip of 2tt months was part of the year-long ex- periment that tested whether men and women could live well together on board ship. "And we .did declared the 20-year-old Miss Pach- omski. She recalled the captain's statement of pride of his crew as the Sanctuary headed to- ward its Florida port in mid- December. The mission also was important, she said, be- cause it gave medical atten- tion and supplies to people who needed them. "When we pulled in to Co- lombia, I could never tell you what it was like. There were hundreds of people on the pier waiting for us, clapping and yelling." Miss Pachomski said equal- ity and co-operation marked the trip. "There's nobody better than anybody else. We're treated the same. Everybody's rules are exactly alike." There are a few regulations due to the women's presence. Their berthing area, with its feminine touch of bright blan- kets and sutffed animals, is off-limits to the men. The men's berthing area is off- limits to women, too. Public displays of affection are not allowed, but there have been the inevitable ro- mances. When two Sanctuary sailors tie the marriage knot, however, one of therrcmust Women swamp police TORONTO (CP) The Ontario provincial police are being swamped with applications from women wanting to join the force, commissioner Harold Graham said this week. The commissioner, who announced at the beginning of March that women would be admitted to the force, said there were over 700 applications for the 45 jobs available. He said the first 15 women selected likely will be in training by the end of May. transfer from the ship. Seaman Pachomski says that the few "old Navy" men who have trouble getting ac- customed to women sailors aboard just make her more determined to do a good job. The young men welcome them for the most part as a change from all-male company. "Most of the guys are she said. "They still open doors and the 20-pound hatches for us. They give us their jackets if we're cold. They're still men." The 5-foot-l sailor said she pulls her own weight (112 pounds) when it comes to work assignments. 1 Which currently is taking care of the paperwork that concerns about GO crew mem- bers. But she has had her share of mess duty and paint details. AH the sailors stand watch periodically, which takes them to the bridge when the ship is under way. "On the bridge, we're there to take care of each in- strument. It's on-the-Joo training. We learn day by day." The hardest adjustment was the lack of privacy in the don quarters of the berthing area. "You have to be able to live with said Seaman Pachomski, who concern about dunging her title to "seawoman.'r "It's just a she said. But it is one she is proud of after starting duty as a sea- man apprentice. Seaman Pachomski was with the ship at Hunters Point, Calif., for five months before the South American voyage because an expected trip to Greece was canceled. That voyage now is set for this spring. "We're getting our chance to see the said Sea- man Pachomski.
