Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THf UTMBRIDPE WRAID Thuorfcy, April 13. By JUDE TURIC Horald Staff Writor Somewhere along Die way, past Ihc mark of your birthday, someone in your group is bound to fall to the will you marry me bug. and say yes "Our (iisL casiinlity happened almost two years ago, and although it was a very happy occasion, it still reduced our numbers from a nice round five, io a sickly four. Heather Lee's pending ceremony brought about a great many hurried and harried preparations. managed to sail through several showers, sev- eral conferences on Hie lype of dresses we wanted, and nut female version of the famous male stag. All seemed most bright and cheery and we all thought nothing, but nothing, could go wrong so close to the appointed tie-the-knot date. In the midst of all the planning fun, we managed to overlook the simple fact Hint Um im-'d nf i-or1-. a nurse by profession, was scheduled to work nights that particular weekend. To the layman, this is a minute detail, and one which should be quite simple lo change with a few strategically pulled strings. To the nurse, nights means working (he graveyard shift 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. and no one in their right mind is game to switch for the thrill of working nights. As it was. Doe happened to be stuck with nights, and had no luck in her attempt to change her lot. Friday and Saturday of the wedding proved lo be a humorous combination of enjoying ourselves, and trying lo keep a maid of honor awake during liie event. Doe's lime slrclch began lale Friday afternoon when the bride and bridesmaids had a buchcloress dinner together, followed up with a run-lhrough rehearsal, topped with a bridal party slosh and gobble to slarl celebrations for the next day. Doe pulltd through jusl fine, and bade farewell lo all, in lime to stall work. The next morning, found her almost asleep under the hair dryer after being awake for fG hours and a wedding still ahead of her. By Saturday noon, Doe had faded off into slight whimpers of uh-huh, whenever a question was asked, and then had a miraculous recovery round about Ihc time we were leaving for the church. Her eyos were camouflaged with light make-up to hide persistent 1-want-to-slcep marks, and a wake-up pill restored some vitality to her otherwise limp body. All went well for several hours thereafter, and none suspected that the pep pill would eventually wear off. At least not until we noticed her head dipping pre- cariousl.v over the mashed potatoes and gravy. Things began lo gel progressively worse as the dinner wore on, and wilh her purse and saving pills out of reach, the best we could do was allemate giving Doe shaq> elbow jabs. The final tinkle of glasses heralded an en masse brid- al rush lo retrieve a purse; conduct an organized shuf- fle for glass, pill, and a quick downing of Hie saviour for blurry-eyed Doe. Four hours of polkas and butterflys, and four hours aftcr-the-dance party kept her wide awake. And al- though we worried intermittently about Hie side effects and brain damage. Doe pulled through all 37 hours, re- gained her poise in an eight-hour cat nap, and put in another eight-hour stint with continuing festivities he- fore heading back lo her duties. For the next wedding, she wangled a four-day leave. rr iinmia] report WOK mndo heads. a suc- cessful anil profitable year re- ported by all. ami a bank ual- i ance of over Oulg o i n e president, Mrs. Mnry Watklcn gave a summa- TORONTO (CP) Do new- 'lion of Ihc years' activities, ami born baljie.s ckcum a lot lo re-'expressed her llianks to I li o cover from a clifficiiH or jv, onion of Mm parish for Ilia Ihc effects of drugs given their j good work they did during Ihn mothers during labor? pnsL, and during her Uvo-ycar Possibly so, saj's o learn of Kingston.

Mrs. says her ap- proach has not changed in '25 years as a world traveller she just likes to meet Ihe peo- ple. What's happened is that she is getting more attention, especially on television, since President Nixon sent her on special missions abroad. The China trip on worldwide lele- vision capped the recent round oE increased public ex- posure. Many arc surprised to learn that the slender, blonde, con- servatively-dressed and inde- fatigable Mrs. Nixon is CO. She looks younger.

Such feats as shaking thou- sands of hands and making arduous rounds of schools, hospitals and institutions have been Mrs. Nixon's trademark. Asked if her trips abroad are more strenuous than her husband's, Mrs. Nixon laugh- ingly told reporters in Africa: "He does the I do the walking." "She jusl laughs whenever they say there's 'a new. re- laxed .Julie Ei.sunhoucr said of her mother.

''Thai's why she always makes friends, You have to respect her for it. She could write a hook about all Ihc un- believable things that have happened." Mrs. Nixon's good-will dip- lomatic role on her own started with a relief mission to Peru in the summer of 1D70 when she flew miles lo visit victims of a major An- dean earthquake. Nixon added a new dimen- sion to his wife's role by send- ing her on an official mission to Africa in January lo repre- sent the United Slates at the inauguration of Liberia's new president, and to lell leaders of three African countries his hopes and aims for summit, meetings in Peking and Mns- cow.
