Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta -BRIDGE HERALD-Saturday, August Ann Landers Herald Family Dear Ann Landers: The problem I am writing abflQt isn't really mine, it's my mother's. But she would never write to you about it, so I will. Mom loves to cook, and she is really great at it. She spends a lofc of time in the kitchen fixing delicious suppers Just before Dad sits down, he goes to the refrigerator and takes out a bottle of ketchup. He never even tastes anything before he drowns it in the red stuff. It makes no difference what it is fried chicken, pork chops, roast or fish. I can see the hurt look in'Mom's eyes when he does this. She never says a word but I know how shf must feel. I'm afraid one of these days Mom will sav the heck with it and stop cooking delicious meals tor us Do you have any suggestions? In The Family Dear In: Your dad is a ketchup freak. These types are usually incurable It's a pity to waste time preparing delicious food for ketchup hounds because all they want is the taste ol ketchup If the other members of the tamiK continue to 'compli- ment Mom on her wonderful cooking, it will make, up for your dad And it might even get him to try something without ketchup, just to see what the others are raving about. Dear Ann Landers: Several weeks ago you published a letter from a sour apple who didn't like any part of the human race He said 99 per cent ol the people he knew were phonies, that they really didn't give a hoot about anyone except themselves. Then he went on to cite as an QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic 303-5th Street So.

One of the problems is that people do have a tendency to give trite answers to; trite ques- tions. For example, when someone asks. ('How are most people automatically reply. "Just fine." I say, "I'm thankful. How about yau''" That always stops them! dead in their tracks They ask, "Thankful? For Then I say, 'Tm thankful that at 74. 1 can still see, hear, walk, enjoy good friends, good tood, a good night's sleep, and maybe do a kind deed here and there." Best wishes to you. Ann. I hope you continue your fine column for many years to come. Mrs. L. D. ML. Bethel, Conn. Dear Beth: Anyone who writes off the whole human race because of a few sour apples must have a pretty ran- cid outlook on life. Thanks for an upbeat letter. You sound like a real winner to me. Dear Ann: Every time I meet a guy I like, I get sick. I throw up. It's awful to be hav- ing a good time and then to become suddenly nauseated and have to excuse myself It's nothing that I eat or drink because I made it a point on my last two dates not to eat or drink anything. I am 15 and afraid this problem is not going to solve itselt. I need some help. I know it's nerves, but what can I do about it? Nervous Nellie Dear Nell: First go to your family doctor for a complete physical checkup. Then tell him exactly what you told me and ask him to recommend a counsellor Your problem is probably emotional and you need to talk to someone on a continuing basis to learn why boys upset you.

"Banks look for career people who will move on to management rather than people who will limit themselves to the lower salary of a teller." The British Columbia Tele- phone Co. employs oper- ators and only one is a man. He will not talk publicly about his work but he is doing it by choice. Men no longer are scorned by other men and regarded as less than masculine by women it they enter vocations tradi- tionally stalt'ed by females Brian Young, for example, is one ol 200 male nurses in the l.'i 000-strong British Colum- bu nursing profession. iHis casual no-uniform attire sometimes leads to misunder- standings "Occasionally I'll be doing some nurse s job and a patient will ask me when orderlies be- gan carrying out that func- tion." said Mr. Young. "I've been mistaken for a doctor, too." Gary Trujillo is working as a key-punch operator with three women in his office. The supervisor is a man. Mr. Tru- jillo, who has a degree in com- puter sciences, is waiting for the right job. He said the office job is "giving me an opportunity to see how an office runs and teaching me a little about ac- counting procedures." Ian Macdonald isn't com- plaining either. He was the only male graduate of the school ol home economics at the University of B.C. this year "We need more fellows around said Mr. MacDonald. "Things are changing. Boys are taking home economics in school just for a tor up to three years." He specialized in nutrition and now is experimenting with the toxic effects of vitamin E on rats. If he gets married "I'd let my wife have complete control over the cooking." BILL GROENEN photo Desert aurora Late afternoon sun outlines the crests of coulee hiMs near the riverbottom. Ripening grass on the hiJs gives them a yellow-brown shade, indicating the impending end of summer. Another sign of ap- proaching autumn is the rash of back-to-school sales springing up in the city. Stewardess job changes life of B.C. woman VANCOUVER (CP) Pat Maxwell was a nurse at St. Paul's Hospital in 1938 when Trans-Canada Air Lines ad- vertised for stewardesses. "I wasn't interested in this new. glamorous job." she said "Things were going fine where I was. But one of the nurses said to me. Til bet you that you wouldn't dare apply "With that challenge, I put in my application at the last moment and three days later I had a phone call saying I was hired. I had never even been to the airport before." She said joining Trans-Can- ada, which later became Air Canada, was the best thing that ever happened to her 'It was wonderful and changed my life entirely. In the hospital setting you really don't get to know too much about the business world, but living taught me a lot." Mrs. Maxwell and Lucille Garner were stewardesses on a twin-prop Lockheed that TCA ran twice daily on its only passenger flight from Vancouver to Seattle. Their preliminary training was with United Air Lines. In 1939, when the airline be- gan its transcontinental pas- senger service, Mrs, Maxwell became assistant chief stew- ardess and was sent to Winni- peg to train 14 other women. She spent the next couple of years in a supervisory capac- ity, before she left to get mar- ried.

There was an urgent meeting. We decided to wait and the passenger was thrilled Mrs. Maxwell said steward- esses have changed in 35 years, the biggest change coming in their association with passengers. In the early days of passenger flying, the stewardesses would talk to the passengers in the waiting room, stand with the ticket agent as they checked in and then check them off as they boarded the aircraft. But with the advent of the larger aircraft, the feeling of camaraderie wasn't the same. "It was almost as though the pilots were your brothers. Often today, the cabin crew don't even know the cockpit crew." Pot-pourri A retirement party was held recently at the Labor Club honoring David L.

Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Crowsnest Pass, and Windsor, Ont. Somewhere, in this vast land of ours, some avid entreprpneur has by passed the road to riches. Canada is a land of many resources: wheat, oil, timber, highways Yes, I know. Nobody really looks upon highways as a resource rather, breeding potholes, frost heaves and lading centre lines as they do, maintenance of our lumpy network of highways, secondary roads and primitive paths is regarded as yet another drain on the already-enfeebled tax- payer. And that's where we've been making our big mistake. There's money to be made in 0 Canada, alas (because of your sprawling a great many of your roads are not scenic drives, offering neither breathtaking vistas, nor spectacular scenery. Let's face it, old girl, dozens of your byways are, to put it bluntly, deadly dull, curveless. flat and drab. I speak for an oppressed majority: automobile passengers Sure, it's all right for the driver who has plenty to do: weaving in and out of traffic; dodging potholes; slowing down for "men at work" signs where nobody in sight is stirring; cursing and shaking clenched fists at trailers and farmers towing swathers who won't pull over to the shoulder of the road. Nothing but wild excitement for the entire trip. But tor the passenger, "seeing Canada first" is an open in- vitation to a 1.000-odd mile siesta. Z-Z-Z-Z. From Calgary east through two and one-half provinces, the miraculous Trans-Canada, artery of the nation, trundles through terrain emptier than a hermit's photo album. For a mere 500-mile sample of such slumber, subject yourself to a jaunt from Lethbridge to Regina some weekend. That is. it you can survive the first 100 cratered, construction-shredded miles to Medicine Hat. an equally wrenching ordeal for human and car bodies.

Also, the games should be adaptable to any number of players, to encourage car-pooling. One cannot emphasize strongly enough the need lor adult games.
