Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, Dxtmbtr 3, 1970 THI lETHBRIDGt HERALD 23 Ann Landers ANN'LANDERS: I did not agree with your views on signing "Love" to a letter. I also disagree about "Sin- cerely" sounding "trite." I believe "Love" should be re- served for those whom we tally love and not just those whom we like. to me, is a very meaningful word and it should not be used indiscriminately. There are far too few sincere people in this world. For example- How many times have you passed a friend on the street who asks, "How are and then hurries on his way, without even listening to your reply. He does not have the slightest interest in how you are. Why then did he ask? Do you see what I mean? So please, Ann, encourage your readers to keep things as close to the truth as they can. This world needs less phoniness and more honesty. -Mexico, Missouri Teacher BEAU TEACHER: Your point is well taken and while I do not agree, completely, I thank you for expressing it. The question, "Saw are you" is, in our society, more of a greeting than an inquiry. It's a shade friendlier than Hello I but I don't believe it means, "Please give me a detailed report on the state of your health." DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a 16-year-old girl and about to go nuts. I am afraid of so many things I don t kZv where to begin. I get uptight sitting through church services Sometimes I actually shake. I'm absent from school a lot because I get nervous around people. I cant go to a football game or a basketball game. Now it's get- ting so I can't eat in public. My fear of elevators is awful. I'd rather walk up twenty flights of stairs than take an elevator. I.can't stand to be in a car unless I'm seated by a window which I roll down'. My fear of being suffocated is overwelming. I am also ter- rified at times that the floor will cave in under me or the roof will collapse. Last year I told my parents I had stomach pains (not true) and needed to see a doctor. I tried to get across to the doctor what my real problems were but he didn't under- stand. He gave me some tranquilizers which made me feel better but tranquilizers are no solution for me and I know it. I'm a fairly good student. I love music and art and I enjoy painting. My parents have no idea what goes on in my head and I don't want to worry them. But I m on the verge of cracking up. Please, Ann, help me, Peggy of Ohio DEAR PEGGY: I was struck by the neatness of your letter and the perfection of your handwriting, spelling and grammar. I was also impressed by your ability to describe fears ivhich are clear-cut symptoms of emotional illness. You need psychiatric care and you need it at once. Stop fooling around with doctors who "don't understand." (Many doctors do understand but you weren't lucky enough to find Tell your parents you want to see a professional who recog- nizes your anxieties as symptoms of emotional who will help you get off this collision course. I see you live in a small town which may not have a psychiatrist. Go to the nearest large city or write to the American Psychiatric Association, 1700 18th Street N.W., Washington, B.C. for guidance. And keep in touch with me, Honey. I want a pro- gress report in 60 days.

Phone 328-4131 Conference indicates support for decentralization Approval far the concept of decentralization of authority In social services was revealed during the Human Resources conference Wednesday, said Ray Speaker, minister of social development and ciialrman of the Human Resources Council. Indication of future involve- ment by the community was given he said both in the num- ber of persons who attended the conference and by the discus- sion of services such as guar- anteed annual income, unem- ployment, day care which en- sued. He said the conference show- ed that the community was will- ing to be involved in the pro- cess of decentralization, co or- dination and tjtter use of ser- and participation in areas of need. He predicted that hi the com- ing year the groundwork could be laid for forming either a co- ordinating council for social services or a local authority. BEGAN YEAR AGO Decentralization began about a year ago within the social de- velopment department following a release of the White Paper on Human Resources Develop- ment. More authority was allocated to the regional offices; the re- gional office must then be able to relate to the community in order that the local region can take more responsibility. One area in which the region could take more responsibility is in unemployed employables, First female academy NEW YORK (AP) The first school for women chartered by the Mississippi legislature was the Elizabeth Female Academy near Washington, Miss. The school was in existence from 1818 through 1843. said Mr. Speaker. Ho referred to Edmonton and Calgary in which the Chamber of Com- merce, business and Institutions have been able to place about 800 persons in these cities through a combined effort. "These persons netted more than they could obtain on welfare, and the social develop- ment department saved they would otherwise have spent." The department's employment opportunities program has been largely successful, said Mr. Speaker, especially among wo- men with dependents who have been able to go back to school, or receive training, and there- fore gain employment. The conference had been call- ed to get to the grass roots level of opinion, Mr. Speaker told the more tlian 100 partici- pants. "I didn't want another gov- ernment conference where you get 40 per cent government people who get a chance to re- hash everything and influences come back to the same thing we've heard before." Some of the concerns raised by the conference were noted by Mr. Speaker as being key issues at the present time. Basic concerns of the depart- ment in setting up a frame- work for the conference were total participation, how to de- centralize to the local level, volunteerism, private and pub- BACKACHE BLADDER IRRITATION Common Kidney or Bladder Irrita- tions make many men and women feel distressed from frequent, ourn- Jnc or itching urination night and day.

DEALT WITH ISSUES The conferences, he said, dealt with these issues and he looks for a continuation of these discussions in the community. Mr. Speaker called for co- ordination between service fa- cilities not only between city services and government ser- vices, but withm the eight or nine provincial departments at work within the city. "Due to the growth of com- munities, growth of govern- ment, growth of expenditures in the whole area of social ser- re-organization is nec- essary in delivery for better co- ordination and to avoid over- lapping of services, he said. The only way to co-ordinadon with harmony and understand- ing is through community in- volvement. "We can talk co ordination, but only with the understand- ing of the organizations in- BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12th St. "C" N.

Two pilot projects are being undertaken in the province this year by the department in com- munity Involvement, one In an urban and one in a rural com- munity. No details of the projects could bo released at this time, said Mr. Speaker. He intimat- ed they would be in operation for approximately a year to give the department adequate opportunity for study.
