Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers .._.-..______ Monday. April 10. 1772 LETH3SIDG5 HIRAID 19 DEAH ANN LANDERS: I'm a 14-year-old girl wilh a serious problem. Mom died three years ago and Dad and I have managed with a housekeeper who is a nice woman. I love Uiis house. Il's been home to me over since I can remember. II reminds me of Mom. My school is the greatest. The kids aro nifty. I make good grades, Kverylhing I dij: is here. Including a cool boyfriend. The problem: Dad (old me yesterday he is going to remarry. This means we'll be moving into his new wife's home, lie is excited about it. I'm sick at the thought. I want to stay wilh my grandparents who live around the corner until I graduate from high school. Dad could slop here every morning on his way lo work. I could go to his place lor dinner a few limes a week. Please, Ann, help me uin this bailie. I am 14 and too old to Jlarf Transplant. DliAfl N. T.: Fourteen and loo old lo stall over? Look, Doll, you'll have a hall at (he new place, tlow do I know? Ue- cause you love where you arc. Watch for tomorrow's column. There wilt be a letter in there of special interest lo you. DEAH ANN LANDERS: You have made 50 much trouble for me 1 considered a lawsuit. My cousin who is an attorney says 1 have no grounds but I want lo tell you how your stinky column almost cost me my marriage. I took the bus home from a lodge meeting a few weeks ago. I took olf my shoes and closed my eyes. I've been riding the buses tor years and never had any trouble. That night there were about 20 kids on Ihe bus I think they were coming from a ballgame. My eyes weren't closed for more than 10 minulcs and when I opened lliem, one o[ my shoes was missing. This was some creepy kid's idea of a joke. When I got home I lold my wife whut happened and lhat was the end of it. A lew days later she hands me your column. It was about the guy who let himself into his girlfriend's house with the back-door key and recognized an old buddy's voice in Ihe back bedroom. lie spied the guy's shoes in the living room and decided on the spur of the moment to tako one of the shoes and leave quietly. On his way home he pitched it into the lake. Ho closed his lellcr by saying, "When the guy's wife reads this she'll know why her husband came home with one shoe the other night." My wife said, "T wondered about your crazy story of the kids on the bus swiping your shoe. It didn't make sense, but (his docs." I told her that il happened in another state. She says you changed it lo save my neck and it's been very chilly around our house lor quite some time. Drop Out DEAR FROZE: I give you my solemn word lhat the letter was not Irom New Orleans. I hope this thaws things out at your house. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Twice In the past six months you've asked women who married "mama's boys'1 why they lailed to recognize the signs" BEFORE marriage. I'd like lo answer. My own family was reasonably well-balanced. We loved and respected one another but we were independent. I had had no experience with "closely knit'' families. 1 didn't know what "signs to look for. I'm sure now that had 1 known, 1 still would have been fooled because (hat screwy Irio kepi all symptoms of their sick behavior carefully concealed. When I was 20, I married a man who had all Ihe external trappings of a mature adull. In Ihe six months we dated he rarely mentioned his parenls. Shortly after Ihe wed- ding I discovered what I was in for. When we hod dinner at Ihcir home, his mother filled his plate, held his chair, slroked his hair, cooed in his ear and they held hands at the lable. His dad witnessed il all wilh silcnl approval. Aflcr dinner they excluded me from Ihe conversation completely. I might as well have been in Australia. Tliis went on for four years. Thank God we had no children. When I left him no one could understand why. I am now married lo a wonderful man and we have a beautiful family. If I had stayed wilh my firsl husband I would nol have had any children because he spenl almost every night at his parents' home. Crazy? You'd tetter believe it. Sanity It's Beautiful. DEAR SAN: Thank you for answering the question. II figures.

(AP) Wirephota) Marriage statistics take dip EDMONTON fCP) Alber- ta's marriage rate for 1971 took a bit, of a dip from 1970, prelimi- nary statislics show. The division ot vital statistics Kay (here were J5.505 registered marriages last year or 9.5 mar- riages per population. The figures for 1970 were and 9.0. Alberta's 0.6 rale in 1970 was the highest in Canada and well above the B.B national average. Jutm Colville, director of the vital statistics branch, altrihu- eld the high rate in Alberta pri- marily to three factors: 1. The. number of marriagea- ble people Is greater I ban in most, oilier provinces because the population is younger. It's younger on average llian 13.C, for example, "because of the number of retired people going there." 2. Alberta's economy Is us good or better than most other provinces. This allracts young people. "It's natural dial where you have more economic secu- rity, there are more mar- riages." ;i. The age of majority Is 18 and parental consent is not needed.

TORONTO (CP) The pio- vincial health department es- timates thai aboul GO of On- tario's 490 nursing homes myy go out of business because of the Rovernmcnr.s decision to put nursing homes under Its health insurance program. As of this montri the prov- ince will pay nursinc homo costs for patients whose doc- tors say they don't need hospi- tal treatment but need nurs- ing. But with the. government's decision to pay a maximum of per patient per day t'j the hnmes come new stand- ards the homes must mcei. A registered nurse must work there eight hours a (lay, and registered nursing assislaul.s must be on duly around, the clock. Many small homes have, no nurses on staff but will have lo hire them or their licences will be cancelled. Luxury nursing homes for the rich also face problems. They now charge to S25 per clay but the province's draft regulations for nursing homes under the health inbur- ;incc program require the op- 1'ialors to provide CO per cent of their beds ill a standard rale of a day. ASK MOIIB MONKY The operators of the homes, who tend to agree with the eslimnte thai GO homes may go out of, reccnUy said they want per pa- tient per day. When some of Ihe operators hinted (hey would boycott (be program if they did not re- ceive higher payments, Health Minister Richard Tol- ler said homes lhat didn't lake patients under the plnn would lose their licences. Potter mel recently v.itb executives o[ the ciiilod Nursing Homes o[ On- l.'nio Inc., which represeius about SO per cent of the yirov- ince's nursing home brds. He said be is willing lo discuss modifications lo the plan although its basic oulline and financing must remain the same. Dr. William Taylor, execu- tive director for the associa- tion, said in an interview bo thinks the government will give operators the time they need lo adjust.
