Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta .Wednesday, December 15, 1971 THE [ETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Ann Landers DEAH ANN LANDERS; My son, age 16, started to collect Nazi items about three years ago. He has two Nazi flags, and German medals all over tha place. He also has a German gun and a helmet from World War Two and other "souvenirs" which he thinks are "nifty." What bothers me most are the pictures on the wall of Adolf Hitler. I an: ashamed when people who come to the house see our son's room. I try to keep his doer closed, but when he's at home he invites them in. Some of our friends have asked him why he collects these things and he says he "likes history." Our son is a good student and has never gotten into any trouble. He has very few friends, however, and this worries me. When he was younger he had several pets but he was cruel to them and I said "no more pets." Two years ago lie found a stray kitten and Iregged me to let him keep it. Three days later he killed the kitten by dragging it to death behind his bike. Do you see any connection in the facts I've outlined in this rambling letter? Please advise. Mother DEAR MOTHER: I certainly do, and I urge you to waste no time in getting this boy to a doctor for a psychiatric evaluation. There are several clues which even a lay person can recognize as potential danger signals. Get going and good luck. DEAR ANN LANDERS: No big deal here, but my wife and I would like an answer. I'm an architectural engineer and my wife and our two children live in a house I designed years ago. Everything is the way we want it. No guest room. My parents came to visit a few weeks ago and left very annoyed because they had to sleep on the pull-out bed in the den. Before they said goodbye, they told us we should have put the kids in the den and given then; their bedroom. I say kids should not be uprooted for company. Am I right? I am really not WO per cent sure, which is why I'm asking. If you say I am wrong we'll move the kids to the den next year. If you say I am right we'll tell my parents they can sleep on the pull-out bed again or go to a hotel. Please advise. Guest Room DEAR N.G.: Sorry you're wrong. Parents are special people. Any other guest, O.K., but not your mother and dad. What's more, I admire them for laying it on the line instead of remaining silent and going away hurt. Write a letter of apology and invite Item to come next year. It takes a big persons to say, "I was wrong." M DEAE ANN LANDERS: Is it harmful to a small child if he eats cigarette butts? How about burnt matches? We have a nephew who walks around eating whatever lie finds in ash- trays. His parents insist his body needs the sulphur and minerals lie gets from the "garbage." They say that's why be does it. It's "nature's way." Are Uicy DEAR CON: A child won't die from eating a few cigar- ette butts and some burnt matches, but it certainly will not do him any good.

However, In- dian males who marry non-In- dian women retain their Indian status. A motion was passed that the conference and the Native Council of Canada snppo-1 the policies of the native women of Canada and what they are try- ing to do to better their posi- tion in society. Delegates agreed to a motion that all delegates attending the workshop commit them- selves to working towards the unity of all native people, in- chiding Eskimos. Several delegates said that they felt the government was dolibcralely trying to divide native people by separating them into treaty, non-treaty, and "others." One delegate said that as long as this separation exists, native people would remain minority groups. "As long as these barriers exist between us, we will never be lie said, urging that the separating barriers be eliminated. However, another delegate urged that unity should come first, then the elimination of. the separations between native! peoples. j Stan Daniels, .treasurer of j the Metis Association of Albcr- ta, said that unity between the non treaty and native peo- ples' organizations is impos- sible. "It's already been he said. "Sure it's nice to talk about unity and working to- gether and brothers and sis- ters, but how in the hell do you get it He said that treaty Indians don't want fo break the hairier down, and "we have to accept it." However, James Ducharme, president of tlie Metis Associa- tion of Alberta, was more hope- ful. He urged Metis people not to "lie down and play and said there have been consider- able breakdowns in the bar- riers in the last few years. He said he could see that as treaty and non-treaty Indians worked together for a common cause, the barriers would bo elimin- ated. "I can sec treaty Indians and non-treaty Indians coming to- gether on a cultural rather than on a legal he said. PROGRAM STARTED PICTOX, Ont.
