Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETKSRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, August 11, 1971 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Much has been written about battered children. What aboul battered parents? My husband just phoned our married daughter lo tell her a family evcnl would have to be postponed because 1 have a miserable cold. She flew into a rage and used language you couldn't print. This girl has had a hair-trigger lemper since childhood. She has spoiled every family celebration because someone said the "wrong" thing to her. One semester of college was all she could tolerate. She left in a huff, mad at everyone and was subsequently fired from several jobs because of her temper. She was not speak- ing to us when she married so we were not invited to the wedclin" Her husband is exactly like her abusive lo his parents, and discourages any contact with us because wo are "trouble makers." You'll probably say that had we raised our daughter proo- erlv she wouldn't be this way and you could be right. But do you have a word of comfort for us and for oUier parents who are completely alienated from their children? We need it. Off DEAR W 0 Your daughter's hostility, her inability to get along with other relatives and friends, her conflicts in school and in the work world, are all symptoms of a severe person- ality disorder. This girl is more than ornery, she's sick and she's been sick for a long time. It's useless to tell you now what you should have done 20 years ago but for 'parents whose children are hostile, angry and given to frequent tantrums, I suggest a neurologi- cal examination to determine if there is a physical reason for the volatile behavior. If there is no evidence of a physical problem, by all means take the child to a psychiatrist for an therapy is indicated, no time should be wasted. The earlier the treatment, the better chance for recovery. To parents whose grown children behave as your daugh- ter does, I say tnis: stop catering to them, stop trying to appease them and for heaven's sake stop blaming yourselves No one knows for sure why some kids turn out beautifully and others arc loused up. The experts have expressed a var- iety of theories but nobody knows for sure. As I've said before, the same fire lhat melts butter hardens iron. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Why did you advise the young fellow who earned a thermometer in his pocket and took his own temperature even- hour to marry a nurse? Nurses don't want guys who are looking for medical care. What's more, being married to a nurse carries no guarantee that he'll get it. My best friend, Trudie, married a jeweler because she was nuts about jewelry. Her husband bought her many lovely pieces but she couldn't keep anything long enough to enjoy it. Whenever anyone admired a ring on Tnidic's finger, or a ivatch, or a pin or earrings, Sam sold it right off her. Some- times she'd say, "But Sam, this was your anniversary pres- ent He'd reply, "I can get you another one within two weeks." Something always happened and she never got the replacement. Trudie and Sam were divorced two years ago. She mar- ried a tax lawyer in December and now she really does have beautiful jewelry London Observer DEAR LONDON: It is said that the shoemaker's sons go barefoot. Thanks for the evidence. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wonder if the woman who shamelessly signed herself "Still Enjoying It" is aware that Ihe vast majority of men and women who live to be 90 and over gave up sex at an early age. Ask Bertrand Rus- sell He will celebrate his 100th birthday next year. In later life, Bert's far-out philosophy about sex has changed, along with his radical notions about politics. He has become more placid and less volatile these past several years. Those who know say the old boy has gotten not only older, but wiser. Farts in Tulsa DEAR UNVARNISHED: I regret being the bearer of bad news, but Bertrand Russell died on February 2, 1970. So much for your "unvarnished facts." Bertrand Russell was four times wed. At 63 he married his secretary who was 25. His fourth marriage took place when he was 80. His bride was 52. Mr. Russell, incidentally, made it to 97 which speaks fairly well for sex among Ihe Geritol set. And those who know say he was a pincher to the very end. DEAR ANN: Please change your advice to the lady with the hair-sprouting mole. Perhaps, like me, her moles are too deeply rooted to be removed. My dermatologist said I should live with the large mole on my chin because removal would be dangerous. How come you didn't check with an authority before you answered? Reader DEAR G: 1 did check and three dermatologists said the only moles which might present a removal problem are Uiose on an eyelid or near the nose. I suggest you see another der- matologist about the mole on your chin. If it is deeply rooted the removal might leave a slight indentation but it would lie less noticeable than a large mole. 60TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY Mr. and Mrs. James D. McKay of Ihe Westwinds Aparlmenls, celebrated Iheir 60tli wedding anniversary Monday. They were married in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, August 9, 1911.

Grant, Fraser, Murray, Cameron and Iheir wives enter- lained 80 guests in Iheir parents' honor at a garden parly al the home of Mr. and Mrs. Murray McKay.

Soft water makes phosphate difference SAINT PAUL, Minn., "If people want lo avoid phosphates, they should switch lo soap am! softened wider for washing Dr. Mary E. Pur- chase, Associate Profes- sor, College if Human Ecology, Cornell University, told Ihe Water Association Intcrnatonal, meeting in con- vention here. "Soap is a gcad cleaning agent as long as it is used in soft Dr. Purchase said. "Soap is even relatively good in suspending soil and therefore does not re- quire phosphales for that pur- pose." Commenting on the charge that if everyone fried to switch to soap, there would not he enough Fat to mate the soap required, Dr. Purchase said, "I think that if a law were passed that said everyone must u r, e soap tomorrow, we wouldn't have enough. I have no facts to back me up, hi't if a shift away from soap were gradual, I think we'd find enough fats to make it. I hear we are now ex- porting some of our fals to feed the hungery people of the world. If we used those faLs for we wouldn't he feeding people. However, f have great failh in American ingenuity and if it becomes important to use fats for scap instead for feeding people, Ihen I am sure we'll find some oilier kind of mater- ial, like fish oil, to feed people. T am sure that soiriL'how we'll get what we need." In avoiding phosphates, and the water pollution il is claimed they are causirg, Dr. Purchase stressed ths importance at soft- ened water, as supplied by a home appliance, aru" lhat scap could not he used in wafer lhat was even only moderately hard. "When soap is used in water containing sufficient hardness, an insoluble compound is she said. "This pre- cipitate is known as soap curd j or lime soap, and is seen fre- quently as a ring around the bathtub. When hardness is than 3 grains per gallon, or about 50 parts per million, soap curd begins to be a rjrob- 1cm." Dr. Purchase said lhat a home (ion exchange) softening appliance had the of softening water to 0 to 1 grains per gallon range, removing small amounts of iron, and fil- tering out some of the turbidity. "If you use soap, anct your water is hard, you can add additional scop lo disperse the soap curds in the wash Dr. Purchase said, "but then the curds will return in the rinse cycle. Double layer fab- rics, like babies' diapers, can be particularly troublesome. Soap curd forms between the layers, collecls dirt, and cannot be washed out. Thssc clumps of soap curd arc often referred to as 'grease Waler soft- ened by ion exchange softeners won't remove "reuse balls, but it will prevent grease balls from forming." Dr. Purchase mentioned that packaged water softeners citli- er certain phosphates, or tlr. t Uiey form cloudy precipitates that made Income stiff and harsh. However, she said a non-precipitating type soften- er could be useful, even If you owned a water softener, to dis- pc1 hardness that miRht be present in the clothes being washed. S p c a king to the audience composed largely of water con- ditioning equipment dealers, Dr. Purchase said, "You should have no trouble selling against the precipitating type soften- ers."
