I'll say thai fm lici1. She never CM eating, anti the grass never looked lictler; until one apparently working! backwards, she stomped onto the cover of an old fifteen-foot well.

Y.L- figured ttie first thing to do v.-as get her quiet, so vc for the house, found a pail, tossed in a couplo if Imiulfuls of aspirin, a bottle of brandy and half a bolllc pin and added some water for hick. Hack at Ihs well, we lowered the bucket .--.nd waited anx- l-.venlually our hysterical friend co operated and :.'iirperl up most of her cocktail. Somewhat calmer, Aphrodite allowed Val lo crawl doim find faslen a coujtle of ropes arotind her tlltn. He'd worked cut a complicated system of leverage to rescue her, but unfor- tunately the ropes snapped. We didn't know what else lo do so we called the police. Neither did they, but they stayed to watch the show anyway. Then we tried the fire department and got two ladder Inicks complete with crews. They weren't any nclp either, b-it they stuck around to watch By now the place was beginning to iook like tlie fair- grounds during exhibition week. Our nest visitor arrived uninvited, mainly because no ono had thought of him. He was the local representative of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. One glance down the well to assess the situation, and he insisted that Aphrodite had to have a blanket around her I can't remember why but he threatened all sorts of dire results lo the horse, promising to take everybody to court, if tiie old girl wasn't "protected." Strangely enough, he didn't volunteer for the job himself, ro clown Ment Val once more, and tied a moth-eaten old blanket around Aphrodite's bulging waistline. He -ame back soaking wet, with lots of souvenirs In the way of scratches and bruises. Finally, some brain got an idea, and called a local ser- vire station. A short time later, after Val had made one more trip flown the well, Aphrodite rose gracefully into the air and was gently lowered onto solid ground, thanks to an oversize tow truck. She disappeared under mysterious circumstances soon af- terwards, never to be heard of again. Val ended up in hospital with a bout of pneumonia, but when he came out, family and friends all chipped in and bought him an electric mower for his birthday.

Prof. Mann was addressing n workshop in family dynamics icing held in the city yesterday and today, and sponsored by the university and the Lcthhridge b'amily i-'crvice bureau. In one parent families, he said, "the child very often sees :he parent having to play both and may get n distorted image." PARENTS AUK MODELS A young girl may enter inlo marriage expecting lo carry on this dual role, said Prof. Mann, or a hoy may have an exag- gerated 'definition of his own role. 'A very good example of this Is a young liny raised in a one parent family the father. In this case, the father didn't play the mother role." He ex- pected the son to make meals, wash dishes and do housekeep- ing- The son later married a wo- man raised in a two parenl patriarchal household, where the mother had waited on the father. Each of them, he said, went Into marriage with different concepts. The young couple had chil- dren, he said, and as they grew the father lent a hand with their chores. He felt he was heing helpful, hut the wife re- garded it as a criticism of her role and her wifely duties. INTERACTION "The most dynamic aspect of families as far as sociology is :oncerned, is ProE. ilann claimed. ail members of a Lacking communication, ft young man who has career anv irilions sees his role as work- in Iris profession nnd his wife's main job as helping lo achieve (his end. He may define her role of helping as entertaining colleagues. The wife may have different expectations, tie said. Not hav- ing these ambitions, she may expect her husband to be a good provider while she attends to the more domestic type of du- ties. ADJUSTMENTS Before basic agreement is reached in marriage, Dr. Mann explained, there arc problems of adjustment to be solved. M h r i t a 1 expectations and personal needs must he satis- factorily worked out. Kach partner must make certain adjustments to these ex- pectations to tie congruent with the other person's expectations. There must be mutual satis- faction nnd compatibility. However, according to Prof. Mann, the: whole aspect of mar- ital adjustment is not static. People change over the.years, he said, and continual adjust- ment and cvaltiiitiou are need- ed. 'amity and go through dif- 'crent kinds of families during our entire life." "The interaction that lakes place in our entire life depends on the interaction in the family we are involved in at the pres- ent time." A child should not be too close !o one parent and over iden- tify with him or her, he warn1 id. "It may distort the marital role. A child should identify with both parents." 'In the context of two peopk starting a each person brings a number of factors into the situation. Fie has control over some of these factors, bul very little or none over others, EXPECTATIONS Social patterns, traditions which cover the values and at (iludes a person is raised with and the expectations of. boll self and partner, all affect in- teraction in the relationship, he said; along with outside forces like space and time. "In our society our own household and certain economic are expected. "These are cultural responsibil- ities that everybody has to meet." "No person moves Into the role of husband or wife without some knowledge of the role" of what he or she is to be, and what the partner is to be, said Prof. Mann.
