Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tutsday, April 23, W4-THE LETHBRIOQE Ann Landers Calendar of local happenings No kidding It sometimes comes in handy to know how to get a goat's goat, it's no joke just cover his head with a yoke. Goats like to eat most everything and to them pastures are greener on the other side of the fence. This strange shaped yoke makes those other pastures stay greener, and Billy has to stay home. Korea stresses planning hoping to avoid baby boom By K. P. HONG SEOUL (AP) "No preg- nancy this year" is the key- note of South Korea's family planning program today, says Kim Jae-Hee, a consultant of the Planned Parenthood Federation of Korea. "We don't mean, however, to reach zero population growth this year with the slo- gan, which we hope will dis- courage 30 of every 100 pos- sible she said. Korean family planning workers face an uphill fight mainly because of an effect of the 1950-53 Korean War, Mrs. Kim added. The post-Korean War baby boom generation is entering the fertile age period in the mid-1970s, swelling the num- ber of eligible women to about seven million from the present five million. Besides, the traditional atti- tude of preferring boys to girls prevails and most Koreans still consider a family with at least two sons as ideal, taking chances again and again in the hope of producing two boys, she- said. The organization she works for, a member of the Inter- national Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) in London, was established in Seoul and began operating in 1961, a year before the Korean gov- ernment started its first fam- ily planning program. It operates with an esti- mated million in donations from the IPPF, the United Nations Fund for Population Activities, the Asia Founda- tion, and the United States Agency for International De- velopment in Korea. It is the sole agency responsible for the implementation of infor- mation, education and com- munication projects in sup- port of the government's fam- cily planning program. Population increases in South Korea, which is short of food, housing, classrooms and money to invest for industrial- ization, became a serious problem after an estimated North Koreans moved south before and dur- ing the Korean War. During the decade before 1960, the population increased by about one million a year, or by more than three per cent. Since the start of the family planning program, the growth has been reduced to about a year. The govern- ment envisages further reduc- tion to during the 1970s, dropping the current growth rate of 1.9 per cent to 1.5 by 1976, and to 1.3 by 1981. "We are glad to report that Korea has become, in such a short period of time since our first family planning program started, one of the model member countries of the Mrs. Kim said. There had been good co-op- eration between her organ- ization and the govrnment, resulting in smooth imple- mentation of the National Family Planning Program and use of aid funds from in- ternational donors in popu- lation activities. By the year 2000, family program planners hope 90 per cent of all Korean families 'will have two or fewer chil- dren, and the remaining 10 per cent three. Dear Ann Landers: You often print letters from children who write to complain about parents who fight a lot. This letter will be a switch. My husband and I are sick to death of our married children and their constant arguing, belittling each other and making everyone miserable. Our daughter can't open her mouth without saying something insulting to her husband. He is a quiet person who just sits there and takes it. One of these days I wouldn't be surprised if. he blew his top and gave her a crack in the teeth. Our son has a terrible temper and tries to browbeat his wife but she gives it right back to him. When we have the four of them to dinner every Friday evening my husband and I always go to bed with a headache. Please give me some advice before I go crazy. Parental Referees Dear Refs: Tell those Battling Bearcats that your" Friday dinner invitations are cancelled for one month and by that time you hope they will have learned to settle their differences at home and behave civilly at your table. When the month has passed, invite them again. I'll bet there's a big improvement. If not, tell them you'll see them in another month. Keep it up until they learn to conduct themselves decently. In the meantime, you and your husband will get a badly needed rest. Dear Ann Landers: I have been a faithful reader for many years and now I want to ask a favor. This morning it was three degrees above zero. I am heartsick over the animals' that face these temperatures without adequate shelter. A bale of straw costs only a dollar and a lot of it in a big box or a doghouse wOuld give these animals what they need shelter from frigid weather. Yesterday I saw two unkempt dogs no place in sight to.get out of the cold, their hair matted. That same evening I noticed a small kitten trying to keep warm under a station wagon and mewing pitifully. We found someone who agreed to take it temporarily. If the owner isn't found she promised to call the humane society. Please, Ann, tell the folks who read your column that they will sleep much more comfortably themselves when they know their pets are warm, too. D. B. Dear D. B.: Thank you for a compassionate, caring letter. You did a kind deed today. Dear Ann: Here's my answer to that poem, "Please Stay Out of My Kitchen." I think my poem expresses a much more practical philosophy. Please friend, enter my kitchen, Help wash the dishes and such, For I'm tired from cleaning and cooking, And appreciate help very much. We can chat while we do all the dishes, And laugh as we wipe up the floor. Though my kitchen is not very spacious I'll always make room for one more. So please, won't you come in my kitchen, If you're truly a friend indeed, And when I'm invited to your house I'll be there to help if you need. Just Me Dear You: I'll bet more people frame the other poem. To each his own! Ingrid Berg and Caran Moss with an introduction by Marsha Reich.
