Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tu.idoy, Auguri Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Wo have Iwo tccn-ngers who have never given us any trouble. Unlil now, Perhaps it isn't fair to say they ore giving us trouble but they hava caused us some sleepless nights. Actually they haven't done anything, but they talk so much about drugs that we are at a loss to know liow they can )M> so knovledgablo unless they have tried It out. The girl Is 15, tlic hoy Is nearly 17. Tlicy are good stu- respectful and responsible, although the girl is a bit mouthy and the boy is a little sloppy. They have some odd- looking friends but we know where they ore at all limes. At least we think we do. Hero are sonic of the statements our children have mado anil wi: would like to know if they arc true: Marijuana is harmless. No one has proved otherwise. Tho world would IK a place if nil alcohol was dumped into the ocean iind pot was used instead. It's a lie that LSD users have deformed babies. No ono has ever proved this statement. A certain percentage of babies are destined to be horn defective, regardless. fills can be a help lo people who need a temporally spurt of energy, They arc very hlopful in of emergency. Only the idiots get hooked. If a person knows how to use pills he won't got inlo trouble. Tlic media have exaggerated the drug problem. Man has always leaned on something artificial to help Wm through per- iods of stress and strain, hunger and fatigue, and even bore- dom. Can you Icll us, Ann, which of these statements are true and which ore false? Today the kids seem to know more than the adults. We'd like lo see this letter in the column. Thank you. Hill Ignoramuses DEAR CHAP: The answers to tho questions you havo asked, as well as dozens of olher.s, arc in my new booklet called "Straight Dope on Drugs." This is a shameless plug because I want as many people to see this as possible. Send one dollar, plus a long self-addressed envelope, with 16 cents worth of stamps to Ann Landers, Hox 3M6, Cliicago, Illinois 60654. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Noana and Boompa here. We'd like to use your column to get a message to our daughters. It is inspired by the young mother who thought her parents woro "rotten" because they refused to bo round-the-clock sitters: DEAR DAUGHTERS: We apologize for raising you to be such spoiled kids. We apologize, too, for sliU being In our fifties, young enough to enjoy going away weekends instead of staying in town ami taking care of your kids so YOU can take off. We'd like you to know that we didn't shove- you on OUR parents when you were babies. Your father and I stayed home plenty, or we took you with U5-. Now it's our turn lo your turn to stay horns with YOUR children. Ruling out sickness or emergency, there is no reason why you girls and your husbands shouldn't ha responsible for your own children. When Uiey are grown, you will want to be free and you will havo earned yovir free- dom. As Ume marches on and your eliildrcn marry and liavo Uttlc ones, you can lell them what I am telling you.

Loneliness, poverty, sickness and despair are the lot of man? f about 200 million persons in he who arc G? or older. But the shock of crumbling tra- ittion makers the situation even worse in some places. These are preliminary find- ings of experts making an inten- sive study of the problems of old age for the UN General As- .cmbly. The completed report is due in 1973. For the broad purpose of this study old people are considered Lo be those CO or over. Tarek Shuman, a UN sociolo- gist who is preparing the study, says that in many developing c oun tries the kinshi p sy st em has been undermined and "the role of the feared and revered patriarch is disappearing." "Migration from rural areas left behind large numbers of older people whoso traditional sources of economic and social family and friends no longer available. "In urban communities, the cost and difficulty of assuming the- support and care of aging parents is also mounting. The standard of living is becoming much higher. The typical home has little or no space available to take in additional family members." Old-age assistance is a Joke in countries where e very just the elderly has similar problems. The situation promises to worsen as life expectancy In-i creases. Jn Africa, the old are expected to comprise five cert of tho population in 1975, compared with three per cent in 13G5.
