Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAU ANN LANDERS: I'm a 14-year-old girl with a serious problem. Mom died three; years ago and Dad and I have managed with a housekeeper U'tio is a nice woman. I love this house. It's been homo to me ever since I can remember. It reminds me of Mom. My school is the greatest. The kids aro nifty, i make good grades, Everything I dif] is here. Including a cool boyfriend. The problem: Uad loltl ine yesterday ho 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. 1 want to stay with my grandparents who live around Hie corner until I graduate from high school. Dad could stop here every morning on his way to work. 1 could go to his place for dinner a few times a week. Please, Ann, help me win this battle. I am 14 and too old to start Transplant. DEAR N, T.: Fourteen and too old to stall over? Ixiok, Doll, you'll have a hall at the new place. How do I know? Be- cause you love where you are. Watch for tomorrow's column. There wilt be a letter in there of special interest to you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You have made so much trouble for me I considered a lawsuit. My cousin who is an attorney says I have no grounds but I want to 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 off my slices and closed my eyes. I've been riding the buses for years and never had any trouble. That night there were about 20 kids on Hie bus I think they were coming from a ballgame. My eyes weren't closed lor more than 10 minutes and when I opened them, one of my shoes was missing. This was some creepy kid's idea of a joke. When I got home I told my wife wiml happened and that was the end of it. A few 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 the back bedroom. He spied the guy's shoes in the living room and decided on the spur of the moment to take one of the shoes and leave quietly. On his way home he pitched it into the lake. He closed his letter 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, "I wondered about your craEy story of the kids on the bus swiping your shoe. It didn't make sense, but this does." I told her that it happened in another state. She says you changed it to save my neck and it's been very chilly around our house for quite some time. Drop Out DEAR FROZE: I give you my solemn word that the letter was not from 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" why they failed to recognize the signs" BEFORE marriage. I'd like to 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. I didn't know what "signs to look for. I'm sure now that had 1 known, I stitl would have been fooled because that screwy trio kept all symptoms of their sick behavior carefully concealed. When I was 20, I married a man 24 who had all the external trappings of a mature adult. In the six months we dated he rarely mentioned his parents. Shortly after the wed- ding I discovered wiiat I in for. When we had dinner at their home, his mother filled his plate, held his chair, stroked his hair, cooed in his ear and they held hands at the table. His dad witnessed it all will) silent approval. After dinner they excluded me from the 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 to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful family. If I had stayed with my first husband I would not have had any children because he spent 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. It figures.

(AP) Wirephota) Marriage statistics take dip EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta's marriage rate for 1971 took j a bit of a dip from 1970, prelimi-! nary statistics show. The division of vital statistics say (here were registered marriages last year or 9.5 mar- riages per population. The figures for 1970 were and Albedo's H.6 rate in 1970 was the highest in Canada and well above the 8.8 national average, John Colville, director of the vital statistics branch, attdhu- etd the high rate in Alberta pri- marily to three factors: i. The number of marriagea- ble people is greater Mian in most other provinces because the population is younger. It's younger on average than B.C, for example, "because of the number of retired people going there." '2. Alberta's economy is as good or better than most other provinces. This attracts young people. "It's natural that where you have more economic secu- rity, there are more mar- riages." The age of majority Is 18 and parental consent is not needed.

TORONTO (CP) The pro- vincial health department es- timates that about 60 of On- tario's 490 nursing homes may go out of business because of the government's decision to put nursing homes under Its health insurance program. As of this month the prov- ince will pay nursing home costs for patients whose doc- tors say they don't need hospi- tal treatment but need nurs- ing. But with tlio government's decision to pay a maximum of per patient per day tu the homes come new stand- ards the homes must meet. A registered nurse must work there eight hours a day, and registered nursing assistants must bo on duty around the clock. Many small homes have no nurses on staff but will have to Snrc them or their licences will be cancelled. Luxury nursing homes for the rich also face problems. They now charge to S25 per day but the province's draft regulations for nursing homes under the health insur- ance program require the op- erators to provide GO per cent of their beds at a standard ward-care rale of a day. ASK MOIIB MONEY The operators of the homes, who tend to agree with the estimate that GO homes may go out of business, recently said they want per pa- tient per day. When some of the operators hinted they would boycott (tic program if they did net re- ceive higher payments, Health Minister Richard Pot- ter said bomcs that didn't take patients under the plan would lose their licences. Dr. Potter met recently with executives of the Afsu- cialcd Nursing Homes of On- tario Inc., which represents about 80 per cent of the prov- ince's nursing home beds. He said he is willing lo discuss modifications to the plan although its basic outline and financing must remain the same. Dr. William Taylor, execu- tive director for the associa- tion, said in an interview tie thinks the government will give operators the time they need lo adjust. "The government Isn't going lo put patients out In the snow just because an net has come into force."
