Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDEUS: I hope you won't think this letter Is n phony just because it comes from New Haven. I'm in high school, not so please lielp me. My problem has to do with my best fi'ienils. When it's lime for lunch we go somewhere to eat. I'm the only one who brings a lunch. My two friends never bring anything. They say they aren't very hungry at noon. When I start to unwrap my lunch, they say. "Gee that smells or, "Boy that looks yummy." and I end up splitting my lunch three ways. 1 got pretty corked off a few weeks ago and told them 1 wasn't going to split my lunch with (hem any more. They said, "O.K. you don't have to share if you don't want to. AVe just like your company." So for two days I didn't give them anything and they just sal and looked starved. I felt like a heel. The third day I divided my lunch three ways and I've been doing it ever since. These are good kids and I have no one else to eat with. I'd hate to cat alone. What should I do? Trapped In A Triangle. DEAR TRAPPED: Are you game to experiment? For one solid week, eat a big breakfast and don't bring a lunch. Meet your friends as usual and tell them you've decided to cut down on your food intake. Since they claim they enjoy your company, this will he a good lest of their sincerity. If after a week they rlo not bring their own lunches or seek another companion, it's safe to assume that they are not lolal freeloaders only partial. You should then accept Ihe fact thai nobody's perfect and go back to Ihe three-way split. DEAH ANN LANDERS; A few days ago my best friend died. He was my teacher, my idol, my symbol of strength and protection. He was also my father. Last year on my sev- enteenth birthday I obtained my driver's license. Three weeks baler I had a minor accident, I was scared to death of what my father would say when the police called him. I wasn't hurt but I had a few scratches and was dazed by the impact. The moment he saw me he hugged me and tried to calm my ragged nerves. I kept repeating, "I'll never drive again." He said, "Oh yes you will. In fact you are going to drive me home." Then he lolcJ me about Thomas Alva Edison how he made the first electric light bulb after seven years of hard work and experimentation. Edison handed the precious bulb to his laboratory assistant (o put away. The assistant acci- dentally dropped it, Of course the huih broke into a thousand pieces, Edison went to work on a second bulb. After he had completed it lie handed it to his assistant again to prove that he had confidence in him. I knew how the assistant must have felt when I vras behind the wheel of that car, driving my dad home. This was only one of the lessons I learned from this remarkable man. I am thankful for having had him for eighteen years. I hope you will find room in your column for my letter. Perhaps it will help the lucky ones who still have a dad to appreciate him a little more. A Loving Daughter DEAR DAUGHTER: What a beautiful tribute. When I read your letter I thought about my own father. He, too, was a remarkable man and I miss him every day of my life, Thumrtny, Ap'll 77, 1977 THE IfTHCRIOGF HERALD 23 Nutrition (Canada: food lialnt sunwv food. 1 ,-H sell it. he' iul ycji your "Sn far STUDENTD RIVER Driver's licence examiner Chuck Me Far Ian grins in wonderment at hole in examfnation office wall, left by novice driver Thefma Bray ford who had a bit of a parking problem as slie "drove in" to take her driver's test, No one was hu said she'd try again anolher clay. at the testing stafion suburban phofcj. and Mrs Bray ford The- mis ha p occurred Richmond.
