Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 17, 1973 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My dear brother Kenny was a factory representative. He knew all kinds of people. A few weeks ago Kenny drop- ped dead of a heart attack. After the services, a crowd of people came to my sister- in-law's house. She took Kenny's death very hard and was under heavy sedation. A well-dressed man sought me out when he couldn't find her. He told me that Kenny owed him from two poker games. The message was clear he expects the fam- ily to pay the money. When I asked if he had anything in writing he said, "The guy's word was good as gold. He DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a good friend who has a habit that drives me r.uts. Nell is a darling person and knows everything that goto' on in town. We talk on the phone every day. My com- plaint is this: I can't recall a single conversation when she didn't say, "Hold on a then she leaves the phone. Her "minute" can be anything from 20 seconds to 20 minutes. One day I timed it. When I called her back, half an hour DEAR ANN LANDERS: We took your advice three months ago and now we have a worse problem. We gave our daughter her own telephone for her 16th birthday, as you suggested. It certainly did solve the problem of her tying up the phone for hours. A whole new atmosphere of peace and har- mony was noticed by every- one until last night. My husband and I were out "for the evening. He was expecting an important busi- ness call and tried to tele- phone home to learn if it had come in. He tried for 40 min- utes. The hue was busy. He checked with the operator to DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a 16 year old girl who doesn't know whether she has a problem or just a question. I'm sure you can help. Lately a lot of people have said to me, "You are getting more like your mother every day." When my boyfriend made the remark last night it bothered me. I don't know whether it was supposed to be an insult or a compliment. Please give my your opin- always paid me before." The man left his card and said he'd be in touch in two weeks. A few days later I told my sister-in-law about it. She said she never knew Kenny played poker for such high stakes but if he owes the money she'll manage to pay it somehow. My husband told her, "It's a racket. Forget it." I said I would write to Ann Landers. Answer, please. DEAR T.: Since the man had nothing in writing and your sister-in-law never saw him before, I'd say your hus- band gave her the right ad- vice. later, her line was busy. The next morning she phoned to apologize. She went to an- swer the doorbell and forgot I was waiting. This morning Nell gave me the "hold on a minute" rou- tine again and I waited seven minutes by the clock. (Her dog had to go out.) Any sug- Burn DEAR SLOW: The next time Nell says, "Hold on a hang up. When she calls back tell her exactly what you told me. see if the line was out of or- der. She said, "Sorry, sir, someone is talking." He became upset, got in Ae car and drove home. There he found Betsy lying on our bed, yakking on OUR phone. He asked her why she didn't use her own phone. She said. "I was expecting an im- portant call and I wanted to leave my line free." Now what do you suggest? Dis- placed People DEAR PEOPLE: Tell Bet- sy that if she uses your phone again for an outgoing call, hers will be taken out immediately and don't hesitate to do it. That's some brassy little girl you have there. ion. I need to get this settled in my mind. American Reader In Bangkok DEAR READER: What's your mother like? Do you want to be like her? Do peo- ple feel warmly about her? Does your boyfriend admire her? I don't know the answers to these questions, but you do. Think them over and you'll come up with the answer to the question you asked me. Wind-up wingding The Family YMCA rounded cut its summer Kids' Town and nature crafts.

They do just even negotiate for a raise to in- crease their input, says a study conducted by the Addic- tion Research Foundation.

No gifts, by request. alcohol and drug dependence. Dr. Miles said the six volun- teers, whose average age was 23, were hired to produce the chairs with woven backs. With the money earned they could buy whatever they liked, including alcohol and marijuana. They received per unit of work. Eight days after the start of the study, he said, the men formed a union and de- manded an increase in pay. They were awarded EMffilEDIATE EFFECT "There was an immediate effect on their alcohol con- Dr. Mies said. But later the men were re- quired to smoke marijuana in heavy doses. With that, their production and earnings went down. The men demanded another pay increase, arguing that be- cause they were required to smoke marijuana heavily they couldn't work. They got another raise. Interestingly, Dr. Miles said, with the increase their production went up and their marijuana smoking de- creased. Near the end of the study the men went on a booze spree, turning the hospital into turmoil. Two of them broke a win- dow and escaped to the roof on a cold February night. NOT COLD SOBER "But eventually they came down bearing gifts for the Dr. Miles said. Some got fed up and threat- ened to leave the study, he said, but they would have lost their earnings plus a bonus promised those who stayed until the end. And what did the study prove? "If you raise the price of li- quar what dews the average drinker do? Work harder to earn more so he can drink the same amount? Drink less? We don't really Dr. Miles said.

Women teachers as capable as men TORONTO (CP) If women teachers want true equality with men in their profession, they must change their own at- titudes, says Sybil of Winnipeg. Miss Shack is a school princi- pal and author of the Two- Thirds Minority; Women in Ca- nadian Education. She was speaking today to 800 delegates to the animal meeting of the Federation of Women Teachers' Associations of On- tario representing mem- bers. Miss Shack said of the profession are women and practically none are principals, superintendents, inspectors or in any position to have a voice in basic educational policy mak- ing. "Part of it rests in bias. Women are not expected to be ambitious, and we're resented when we do get leadership roles." But she said she has tried to talk women teachers into as- sarted leadership roles in the profession, and has been turned down. She said women teachers lack confidence and ambition, and are unwilling to commit themselves to involvement that means extra She. urged the women teach- ers to sell people on what should be a self-evident fact, that they are as capable as men of doing the jobs offered by their profession. Federation president Leonore Graham of Windsor reiterated the organization's response to an Ontario government paper tabled in June on equal oppor- tunity for women. She said it is too tentative and had no price tags attached to pay for some of the suggestions made in it. "There was the greatest temptation to say, 'there we go again.' There was nothing radi- cal in any of the prospects, so what is there to discuss? "One of the clues to how serious this government is will be the amount of money they are prepared to spend in the cause of justice." After her speech, delegates unanimously endorsed a bill of rights for women teachers pre- sented by Mrs. Graham during the opening sessioa. It says teachers should be employed and promoted on the basis of merit, not of sex or marital status, that women should have salary and benefits, including pensions, that ere the same as their male colleagues. It says women .teachers shou73 have the same benefits, In- cluding maternity leave as is guaranteed by law to other women workers. The bill will be sent to the provincial minister of education and to all Ontario school boards.

THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "At this "point, we should all give thanks that .there's no sound track on this film." All men not bom equal CHICAGO (CP) Men are not born is, with equal genetic endowment, phys- ical, intellectual or tempera- people fool them- selves if they do not accept that fact, says Lord C. P. Snow, noted British scientist and au- thor, in an essay written for the Journal of the American Medi- cal Association. The essay, entitled Human Care, deals with the need for a humanistic approach to medical care in an era when technology is becoming a greater factor in caring for human ills. "While medicine becomes in- creasingly technical and mecha- nized, there is na substitute for good Lord Snow writes. "Surrounded by all the appa- ratus of a modern hospital, nearly all of which most patients don't begin to under- stand, the passive solitary hu- 800 pounds of trouble RICHMOND, Va. (AP) A patient weighing about 800 pounds has checked into Medical College of Virginia hospital for an intestinal by- pass operation, a hospital spokesman said here. A similar operation was performed here on trumpeter Al ffirt in March, 1972. Hirt weighed 333 pounds, then trimmed down to 260 pounds in the seven months after Sur- gery. They said his sheer size makes it difficult to evaluate his medical condition. He must lose 200 to 300 pounds before surgery would even be possible, a doctor said. The intestinal bypass proce- dure involves shortening the route of food absorption which takes place in the small in- testine, the shorter the route, the less is absorbed, and the less wei ht ained. man being is frightened. The climate of a hospital always has within it some wafts of fear. Those can't be gotten rid of, but perhaps we can prevent them from chilling us too much." To combat this, Lord Snow urges more training in the humanities for physicians. "If the potential of empathy exists in anyone, it can be en- couraged by those who have possessed it and have tried to express it in he says. He suggests that medical edu- cation ateo include a study of the great physician writers, such as Chekhov, Rabelais, Smollett, Arthur Conan Doyle, Somerset Maugham, William Carlos Williams and A. J.
