Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, August 10, 1971 THE LETHBftlDGE HERALD It Weight club members meet Thinner people discover whole new world Dy JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) The world is made for thin people. When weight losers of 100 pounds or more talk about what they've gained as they've lost, they talk about things most people take lor granted. They can wear panty hose and belts, choose clothes be- cause they like them not just because they'll go around them. They can sit in theatre seats, fit comfortably behind the wheel of a car, climb into a boat as anyone else. Anne Lorefice and Rose Dodge have lost 12S and 109 pounds respectively and both say it's a new world, free of constant embarassmcnts and worries. They've lost their pounds working with Weight Watchers, a commercial die- ters group. Clothes have become a plea- sure for them both. Mrs. Joseph Lorefice says: "When ypu're heavy, your dresses are so plain, just two pieces of material with two darts in it and a hem. "Now I'll have buttons and pockels and I'll wear belts, which I love. I couldn't even find my waistline before. "I had a fur coat and never wanted to wear it. If we went to H theatre, I could hardly get into the seat, and with the fur coat, it was impossible." She has given away the fiir coat and thrown away a lot of shots, She had her old dresses taken in over and over until she could begin to buy more interesting clothes. She says she has a bathing suit now and is Ihinking of learning to swim. "I'd be so warm in the sum- mer I didn't want Co go any- where. It hurt lo walk. "You don't tell people these things. People ridicule you." Both women say their big- gest problem now is that they still like to cook for the [amily and still like food, but their cooking habits have im- proved. Mrs. Lorelice says: "When I used to put the chicken in the oven, I used to get the gal- lon of oil and go over it like it was going to go swimming. Now 1 put it on the rack." Mrs. Charles Dodge says she has bought three pant- suits and now wears panty hose. "I used to have to wear stockings and roll them at the knee because I couldn't get them big enough to pull up. "I used an awful lot of tent dresses. I wore my hair straight, I didn't wear makeup. It's a wonder my hfsljand didn't throw me out. I didn't care what I looked like. "The director at my office says I'm not the same girl. He said I do my work much quicker. "My housework gets done now, I take pride in my home. Before, to get the vacuum out, to bend over Lo get the work I always had a headache. 'I have more friends now. No one wants to be friends if you look a mess all the time." Mrs. Dodge took part in a recent walk for charity, a thing she would never have considered before. She walked the whole 20 miles, and at the half-way mark, her husband took her lunch to her. It was a salad. Ontario study completed College nursing equals hospital training By CAROL PASCOE MONTREAL (CP) Fears that the quality of nursing in Canada may drop with a shift of training programs to junior colleges from hospital schools have been proven groundless, says a five-year study spon- sored by the Registered Nurses' Association of On- tario. The study, which compared graduates of two hospital schools and one independent program with those of the six-semester nursing course at Toronto's Ryerson Poly- technical Institute, concluded that college-trained nurses are equally competent and have increased potential for professional growth and de- velopment. Dr. Moyra Allen, associate professor at McGill Univer- sity's School for Graduate Nurses and co-author with Mary Reidy of the report, said in an interview that nurs- ing directors ci'.ed enthusi- asm, flexibility, responsibility and articulateness as special qualities of Ryerson grads. Supervisors in charge of Ryerson nurses said they grasped principles easily, ac- cepted criticism well and love fs... not expecting him to keep up -with the Joneses. were more willing than hospi- tal graduates lo use nursing directors as resource people and sounding boards. LACK CONFIDENCE On the uegative side, the college-trained nurses were found to be disorganized, lack- ing in self-confidence and lia- ble to do too much on their own. However, as Dr. Allen said, hospitals traditionally have equated starched efficiency and "working in a straight line" with top nursing care. Such attitudes would have to change to cope with new-style nurses who are more likely to be analytical and imaginative than well-organized. Dr. Allen and Mrs. Rcidy, who is a researcher and lec- turer at McGill, carried out the study to follow girls from their first year of training lo their entrenchment in the labor force. They discovered that many Ryerson students were sup- porting themselves and study- ing nursing without the moral backing of then- families. They seemed .more inter- ested in the types of nursing where education and preven- tive techniques are critical, such as psychiatric and public health nursing. SPECIAL MARK Hospital students looked to more traditional settings with extended patient contact. Ryerson students considered nursing a life-long profession, while hospital trainees said they planned to work only part time after marriage. The Allen-Reidy report de- scribed Ryerson girls as "nursing recruits of a very special mark." The report indicated that Ryerson staff fostered a prob- lems-solving approach. More emphasis was placed on hand- ling individual patients and, as a result, nursing supervi- sors noted that Ryerson nurses were strong within the realm of interpersonal rela- tionships. Hospital school faculties, on the other hand, were anxious that nurses have a lot of knowledge and be able to apply it in stereotyped situa- tions. It was significant, Dr. Allen said, that nursing directors assumed Ryerson graduates needed more hospital experi- ence and recommended they be placed in general duly areas. But fewer than half ended up in general duty areas and none were given special orien- tation or instruction, yet all turned in satisfactory per- formances. The general complaint that Ryerson nurses lacked confi- dence at the outset was ech- oed by the graduates them- selves. Bui they said they still considered themselves belter able to participate in conver- sation with superiors than hospital graduates. Dr. Allen said she hopes the findings of the report will quash worries about the qual- ity of nursing graduates from public colleges. Quebec and Saskatchewan are at present the only prov- inces training all their nurses in college settings, but the switch from hospital pro- grams is definitely the trend today. Perhaps new colleges will avoid Ryerson's great empha- sis on moulding their nurses "to fit in" with the syslem, Dr. Allen said. "Nurses eat, sleep and work in hospitals and become very oriented to the workings of the institution and its hier- archy. 0-O-O-M-PH Peler Redvers, Grace fackey, and Helen Radosevic, left to right, str-e-l-ch lo reach the pose and slance required in exercises in the Hatha Yoga classes being sponsored by Messenger, a youlh information and direclion centre in telhbridge.

This eve- ning I picked up a magazine and saw (Ms Mother's Prayer, by Marjorie Holmes. I hope you will print it. Thank you to advance. Michigan Mother "Oh God, I was so cross to the cliildren today! Forgiva me, I was discouraged and tired and 1 took ft out on them. Forgive my bad temper, my impatience, and most of all, my yelling. I am so ashamed as I think o! it. I want to kneel down by each of their beds, wake them up and ask them to forgive rr.e. But I can't. They wouldn't understand. I must go on living with the memory of tills awful day, my unjust tirades. Hours later, I could still sea the fear in their eyes as they scurried around, trying to ap- pease me Ihinking my anger and maniacal raving was their fault. Oh God, the pathetic helplessness of chidren! Their in- nocence before the awful monster the enraged adult. And how forgiving they are hugging me so fervently at bed- time, kissing me good mghl. All I can do is straighten a cover, touch a small head burrowed in a pillow and hops with all my heart that they will forgive me. Lord, in failing these little ones whom you have put In my keeping I am faiing you. Please let your infinite patience and goodness replenish me for tomorrow." DEAR ALPENA MOTHER; What a beautiful prayer! Every mother who reads it will see herself. In behalf of the millions of mothers who love their children but are, alas, less than perfect, I thank you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your column is a haven for thosa of us who need answers to questions we cannot take to our clergymen, doctors, friends or relatives. Please, will you help me, a grown woman, with some social ameneities which I have never been able to resolve or feel comfortable about? I know it is proper for a woman to shake hands with a man. Is it ever proper for a woman to shake hands with another woman? When is it proper for a woman to greet anoUier woman with a kiss? If so, on which cheek? Is it ever propel1 to greet a man vith a Mss? If you kiss a man as a greeting, should you do the same for his wife? Please answer in all Connecticut papers because I travel around the state a good bit. Thank you. Admirer. DEAR ADMIRER: Whether to shake hands or to greet 1 friend with a kiss, is, by and large, a matter of how you feel about the person. No one can advise you on this. You must let your emotions guide you. With acquaintances, a handshake is enough. With close friends a handshake is loo formal. If you toss, either cheek is all right. In Europe, it's both cheeks first one, then the other If you greet a man with a kiss, you'd better do the same for his wife especially in Connecticut. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am not sticking up for the pot- head whose lelter vou published, with all the errors intact, but I just finished reading the front page of my newspaper and found five typographical mistakes. I wonder if the type- setters are also stoned on pst. Can you elucidate? Weedcr. DEAR CON: I doubt (hat the typesetters are stoned on pot. Typographical errors have teen a thorn in the side of writers and editors since Gutenberg. I wonder, however, if the boys in the composing room sometimes play around with certam words for the fun of it. Here's an example that ap- peared in an eastern paper under Personals: "Mary, please forgive me and come home. It was just a passing fanny. I love you. Jim" DEAR ANN LANDERS: I cried when I read that letter from the wife who made her husband take back the box of candy because it cost 53.95. She said they couldn't afford it. I've been married lor 30 years. My husband's salary was a week (not bad for those and now it is nearly a year. Never once has he come home will a flower, a card or some little trinket. It would give me a million dollars worth of joy if he would surprise me with some small token of love. I can buy amost anything I want but I can't buy myself a 10 cent Valentine. Wife DEAR WIFE: Here's your letter. I hope all the husbands out there who think they see themselves will put on their glasses for a better look.

Shape up ior Hotpants By JOYCE GABRIEL NEW YORK (NBA) Hot- pants give women a warm weather option this year. But only some- can pick up on it. For others, wearing a pair of Hot panls is instant exposure. Being exposed are bulges and flab; midriff bulge, protruding slomachs and derrieres, thighs whose firmness has turned to flab. Women whose bodies are not Venus-perfect don't have to suf- fer through the summer wear- ing clothes that conceal and confine. They can change their bodies, remove the bulges and flsb, and look just as vselte as tlie models do in HotPanls. What's needed is a little will- -power and a lot of exercise. But, wait, ladies, before you stop reading at the mention of exercise. What's needed is not daily torture, but a daily re- gime of exercises, started slow- ly and built up to 10 or more minutes a day. The following exercises, given to Eastern Airlines stew- ardesses to prepare them for Iheir new "mini-pants" uni- forms, can get you in shape for summer: 1. To tighten outer side of thighs, lie on back on floor. Place arms straight out on floor from shoulders and kick to reach opposite hand with toes. Repeat six times for each leg. An isometric thigh and der- riere shaper to do whenever you can: Sit on chair with legs together, feet fist on floor. Tighten thighs and bullocks, hold to count of six, relax to count of six, repeat six times. 3. An easier inside-thigh tightener is to stand with legs six inches apart, arms at sides. Suing right'leg to left, j breakfast each day, but it you Lift right leg back leading with know you won't do it then, ex- heel, until you feel muscles j ercise before going to Bed at The bonus of getting into the exercise routine is that you'll look better, not just in Hot- Pants, but in all your dories. And you'll feel better too. Take a good look in the mir- ror, locate your body problem areas, then close your eyes and envision what you could look like with some exercise. Pick out a new outfit that you'd like to be able lo wear. Then get to work and before you and your muscles know it, your body will be ready for those clinging shorts and for those slinky, body-hugging styles in the offing for fall.
