mmm FIRST FEMALE IN CANADA - Massada's Eve, owned by Mrs. Susan Horovitch, of Southalta Kennels of Barnwell, is a recent arrival from Israel. The dog, of Canaan breed, is the only female in the country, and will be bred for the purpose of donating puppies to seeing eye schools. Other pups will be put up for sale. Nurses should go to college, hospital doesn't 'educate' Canaan dog rare breed Massada's Eve, the first female Canaan dog to be imported into Canada, arrived here last week. The dog, owned by Mrs. Susan Horovitch of Barnwell, will be bred and the puppies donated to seeing eye schools. Other pups will be put up for sale. Massada's Eve is the third of her breed to be brought into the country and the only one west of Manitoba. The Canaan does very well in apartment living, is an extremely hardy breed, can adjust to any climate, is strongly protecting and child-loving and has a definite desire to please. The breed originated in Israel over three thousands years ago, and was initially re-introduced in 1934 as guard and, war dogs. They were then used to help the blind as they were found to be intelligent and easily trained. The first of four Canaans was imported into the States several years ago, with the first being brought into Canada just one year ago. The aim of importing this ancient breed is to save it from extinction and to donate offspring to seeing eye schools, as they are an excellent size for leading children and the elderly. EDMONTON (CP) - Registered nurses in Alberta should be educated in colleges in place of the current system of training them in hospitals, says the Alberta Colleges Commission. The commission, in a proposal to the provincial government, recommended gradual elimination of the current system over three years. In 1974, all diploma nursing programs ; would be the responsibility PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES 2 $500 JACKPOTS LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstairs) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. of the provincial college system. The submission recommends a two-year education program for all diploma registered nursing students. Existing hospital-based programs are for three years. The proposal, released Wednesday, says that the main difference between college- and hospital-based programs is that colleges "educate" their graduates while hospitals "train" theirs. College-trained nurses are better able to deal with patients as "whole people," said Dr. Raymond G. Fast, 35, who wrote the submission. Hospital-based programs, on the other hand, stressed the practical side of nursing.

Dr. Fast, director of instructional services for the commission, said in an interview he expects a "fair amount" of critical reaction to the submission. First reaction came from Murray Ross, executive director of the Alberta Hospital Association, who said hospitals themselves were not consulted before the colleges commission wrote its proposal. "It strikes me as odd that the commission didn't consult the people who educate the vast majority of diploma nurses and make use of the greatest number of graduates before it wrote its report on nursing education," Mr. Ross said. He declined comment on the report itself until lie has had a chance to study it. Hamilton students go camping Forty-nine students in the outdoor education class at Hamilton Junior High School have embarked on a winter camping excursion at Waterton Park at the base of the Rocky Mountains. The students left Wednesday morning by bus and will return to the city Friday evening. The trips are designed to acquaint students with some of the more secluded park areas, to prepare students for appreciation of outdoor living and to give them some practice in survival training in cold weather.

He wanted to know how he could get her to see a dentist who would put her mouth in shape. You were right when you told him that fear is probably what keeps her from going. I have not been to a dentist for 20 years. Fortunately my teeth are in good condition, but my early experiences have me terrified. I recall vividly how the dentist propped my moutb wide open while he worked with a hammer or a pick, and the saliva trickled down my throat. I needed to swallow and couldn't - and I thought I was going to choke. When I told him of my fear he laughed so hard they could have heard him across the hall. I remember the agony of the drill - brrr-rrrrr for 20 minutes running. I bad nightmares about it for years. So please be more sympathetic, Ann. I can understand the girl who has a pathological fear of dentists because I am in her shoes. - Hutchinson, Kan Authority DEAR HUTCH: Sorry, a person who has not been in a dentist chair for 20 years is no authority. I hope you will go soon for a dental checkup and ask to see the equipment. Dentists now have a tube which eliminates the saliva problem. They also have water-cooled drills which rotate at an accelerated speed and reduce the drilling time to a fraction of the old days. Welcome to the 20th Century, Lady. It's beautiful. * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read the letter signed "111 In Illinois - from the woman who was so upset by her son's homosexuality that it was making her a non-functional, nervous wreck. I sympathize with the guy because I'm in the same spot. Two years ago (at the age of 18) I made the mistake of telling my parents I was a homosexual. They became hysterical, begged me to change, and asked me to see a psychiatrist. I told them I was perfectly happy with my life. I have a wonderful male friend. We get along fine and I have no interest in heterosexual relationships. I am not a screaming queen. I don't go to gay bars looking for pickups. I am a productive person and very successful in my work. I am wasting my parents' money by seeing a psychiatrist but I go to satisfy them. I find myself becoming resentful of their involvement in my life, which is more of a problem to me than homosexuality. I can understand their disappointment, however. We are a religious family and they long for me to marry and have children. Thank you for telling "111 In Illinois" to try to accept her son as he is because the chances of him changing are very slim. I, for one, appreciate your realistic counsel. -Gay But Adjusted. DEAR G.B.A: You've made your statement - and I made mine to "111 In Illinois," for which I received plenty of criticism. It's O.K., however. I can take it as well as dish it out. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What does a person say to a friend who has had her nose done over? Does one mention it? I was caught by surprise the other day - and I'm sure I made a fool of myself. I just stood there - speechless. I have never read anything about this subject, Ann, and the etiquette books don't deal with it. Please advise. -New Rochelle DEAR N.R.: Miss New Nose could and should have helped you out by asking, "How do you like it?" She knew you were surprised to see the alteration and it would have been gracious of her to cushion the shock. If the occasion should rise again (and it will, new noses are contagious - when one gal does it, it gives the other courage), simply say, "You look great."
