Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueiday, Docember 14, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 SANTA'S HELPERS ARE HARD AT WORK-Santa Claus has left strict instructions with St. Michael's Hospital Ladies Auxiliary to make this a very special Christmas for the youngsters in the children's ward at St. Michael's Hospital. Mrs, M. Pittman, left, Mrs. B. Krushel, Mrs. C. Chapman, and Mrs. K. Mass, right taking part in a stocking stuffing bee in the auditorium at the nurses residence.

Personal values reflected in fashion EDMONTON (CP) You can't judge personality through clothes, says Ann Kcmaleguen, a specialist on clothing and fashion. "We tend to ascribe person- ality characteristics on the basis of appearance. But that's wrong." A flamboyant dresser might actually be a shy person, she said. He might be so anxious to have social approval that he forced himself into the lat- est fashions. As professor and chairman of the clothing and textile di- vision of the school of house- hold economics at the Univer- sity of Alberta, Dr. Kernale- guen is bead of several pro- jects 10 try to find out why people dress the way they do. "Actually, there ought to be a lot more research done on the importance of clothing and its effects on a person's she said in an interview. One of her current projects is to find out how a person ex- presses his personal values through the way he dresses. "We've identified four main economics, comfort and social." Some people might put money before everything else. Others might be more inter- ested in beauty, with color or fabric or feel a prime require- ment. Others might dress the way they do because they believed they had to maintain a certain position or because it is re- quired in their job. The research project find out who considers which most important and why, Dr. Kernaleguen said. She and her colleagues had to make many decisions in whittling the values down to four. For example, they had to decide that "modesty" didn't deserve a separate cat- egory. Modesty comes under com- fort in the present question- naire because comfort means both physical and psychic comfort, she said. Modesty also had a certain relation to social values in that a woman who might feel it was immod- est to wear a skirt above the knee at one time might hap- pily wear a mini when these wrere worn by the majority. "We know that teen-agers conform to the rigid dress pattern of a Dr. Ker- naleguen said. "It's important for this age group to break from their parents, to be dif- ferent, but also to identify themselves with those of their own age group." To deny them conformity was to in- crease their tensions. Adults and senior citizens might prefer clothing that al- lowed them to express their individuality. A native of St. Brieux, Sask., Dr. Kernaleguen is tak- ing part in a research project involving the three western provinces and all the western states. The study will look into problems that families have related to clothing. Infant death syndrome: education can case guilt EL CAJON, Calif. (Hcutcr) An El Cajon woman is trying to organize a local chapter of the national foundation for Sudden Infant Death, Hie mysterious killer of babies. Sally Saltzslein and her hus- band Sydney, a doctor at the University of California al San Diego, lost their infant son in 1966. She left the apparently healthy child one minute anil found it dead minutes later. No one knows anything about the disease. There are no symp- toms. A mother goes out of the room to cook dinner and returns to find her baby dead. Doctors refer to the disease as the "sudden infant death syn- drome." It often leaves mothers and fathers with an unbearable feeling of guilt. Tins is what Mrs. Saltzstein is interested in preventing. "Our main concern is educa- tion and by this to ease the guilt felt by parents losing a child to Mrs. Saltzstein said. "The impact of such a loss is almost unbelievable. Many families never recover." She said she knew of one mother who ended up in a men- ial institution. Another case ended in divorce and another in which the mother was ostra- cized by friends and neighbors. Mrs. Saltzstein said the main message of the foundation is that SID is a disease, just like mumps or diphtheria, and that parents should not feel guilty. SID claims an estimated to infants in the U.S. annually. The foundation says SID prob- ably has existed in all parts of the world for thousands of years. Excuses such as suffoca- tion have been used to explain the unexplainable. Then about 10 years ago doctors began to suspect something strange was afoot because autopsies on many babies who uitu suuuenly showed no real cause of death, It now is estimated that about 85 per cent of all "crib deaths" can be attributed to SID. Ann Lande rs DEAR ANN LANDERS: I swear every word of this Is true. I am 23 and have been dating a man of 26 for over a year. I always thought it was odd that he never expected me to go beyono' a goodnight kiss. Last night he asked me to marry him but said I'd have to sign an sex. I asked him why and he said, "I tried it once and I don't like it." Tills man is good looking, Intelligent, has a promising career and we get along well together. I think we could have a successful marriage, but I am bemused by his re- quest. Do you think I will be able to get him to change his mind after we are married? Help me DEAR B.: Tin's guy has slrudel in the noodle. If you agree to a sexless marriage in the hope that you can con- vert him later, you deserve whatever you I assure you, will be very little in the line of romance. DEAH ANN LANDERS: A girl I work with has asked me to at her wedding. I told her I would. I've done some professional singing and enjoy it.

To put it bluntly, how can I find out if she intends to pay For Cash Please DEAR CHICK: You have already said THAT'S settled. All you can do now is wait and see if she con- siders you a professional or a friend. The lame to have men- tioned the fee was when she asked you to sing. Remember for the next time.
