Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 16, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Barbara Walden's story of success NEW YORK (AP) Necessity being the mother ol invention turned into a success story for Barbara Walden. Former actress, now business woman, Miss Walden founded Barbara Walden Cosmetics as a result of not finding a line of makeup complementary to her dark complexion. The company, which has been in existence now for six years, began as a solution to her immediate problems. As an actress, Miss Walden was constantly at odds using makeup created for white women. Finding it would streak, cake and dull her natural color, she decided to develop a makeup that would enhance her natural skin tones. Right from the beginning, however, she encountered prob- lems. "The problem came dealing with my she said. "I knew what I wanted, but I only had an idea of what I needed. So having no background in chemistry and trying to explain to my chemist what I wanted, he thought I was insane. "When I started saying, 'I want to do a cheek blush in he'd say, 'What do you mean, I said, 'Well let me show you what I'm talking about.' I took him two bricks and rubbed them together, showing him the powder that came from them. The color is just gorgeous. But that's exactly how we arrived at getting the colors for our blushes. The line of products she has on the market is limited, she said. "I wouldn't put out anything I wouldn't use myself." BCIC board meets to protest MLA's remarks The 11 person board of directors for the Lethbridge Birth Control and Information Centre meets next week to protest statements made by MLA Dick Gruenwald. Mr. Gruenwald (SC Lethbridge West) said this week the centre is "closer to a porno shop" and that birth control information should be distributed by "responsible people." On the board are: two cologists, a pharmacist, psychiatrist, teacher counsellor, teacher, librarian, university student, mother and minister psychologist. Director of the centre is a public health nurse. Mr. Gruenwald has never visited the centre, but has seen some of the information it distributes. "We were just beginning to get our feet under us and this comes Robert Hall, one of the doctors on the board, said Friday. "We were just being accepted by the school boards and were receiving a large number of requests from different groups." The centre has been in operation about two years. Dr. Hall said the board is "very angry" about the MLA's remarks and will decide how to lodge its protest early next week. "It's ex- tremely Dr. Hall said. "I think he's just trying to destroy our centre, give it a bad name. He's probably one of a band of bigoted people not interested in trying to help the young Dr. Hall charged. "I must respect his religious points of view but he should keep them to himself and not color his public statements with his private opinions."

PHONE 328-1662 for your Christmas and New Years appointments Senior citizens strive 4 to make needs known Five by two The family of Glenn and Minnie Matthews of Leth- bridge recently commemorated the occasion of two sets of five generations at a celebration in Great Falls, Mont. The photo at left shows, bottom left, Joan Gurn- sey and Wanda Sand (nee holding her baby Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: How do you like this? An acquaintance of mine who has been a successful attorney here in Oakland for several years started fooling around with a friend of his wife. Before long they were meeting every Thursday at a motel near the airport. He told his wife he had to leave town for a weekly business meeting. Someone put a bug in Wifie's ear and she decided to handle the matter in her own way. Last Thursday night she got in her car and followed her husband and his lady friend to the motel. She watched them check in, return to the car and drive to their room. They emerged soon after and she assumed they were going to dinner, so she waited till they returned two hours later drunk as a pair of skunks. In about 20 minutes the lights went out. The wife waited one full hour, then tapped lightly on the door. The woman, half asleep, opened the door and nearly fainted. Her lover was snoring loudly in the background. The wife said quietly, "Unless you want real trouble, you'll get dressed and drive yourself home right now." The other woman, scared out of her wits, scrammed in record time. The wife undressed and slipped into bed next to her husband. When he woke up the following morning and found her next to him he was too terrified to ask any questions. This story is all over town and I thought I'd share it with you as an example of how ONE woman dealt with the problem in California. Reader Dear Oak: Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. Dear Ann Landers: Right now my husband isn't speaking to me because of a disagreement we are having in regard to his parents. They sold their home and moved to a small apartment. It is their plan to have Sunday dinner every week with a child or another relative, but they never invite anyone to their place. My husband says it's okay with him and I should have them over every three or four weeks whether we get invited back or not. I think it's rotten of him to put his parents ahead of me. Our first argument was over my in laws and I'll bet our last one will be, too. Please give me your opinion in this matter. Give In. Dear Girl: Your signature tells me more than your A_.4 UM icuct. nnu nuw ncica ui.y opinion, which will probably create more trouble than you had before you wrote, for which I apologize in advance. I agree with your husband. Parents are special people and the same rules that apply to social friends do not apply to them. Of course it's tacky of your in laws to embark on a scheduled routine of freeloadmg without reciprocation. But for your husband's sake, you should agree to have them and do it as graciously as possible. Dear Ann Landers: I noted recently in our local newspaper that an obituary notice read "pallbearers will be funeral home personnel." This seemed very sensible. People are living longer and older friends and relatives cannot lift heavy caskets. It worries me that when I pass on there will be few available pallbearers. Any suggestions? Name Please Dear N.N.: My Funeral Maven tells me there are two kinds of pallbearers, active and honorary When the contemporaries of the deceased are up in years, the actual lifting can be done by funeral home personnel and the honorary pallbearers can walk behind the casket. It is sometimes customary for the "honoraries" to wear white gloves and leave them on the casket as a symbol that they have served. Is alcoholism ruining your life?

OTTAWA (CP) Walter Turnhull, former deputy post- master-general, is turning his longtime experience as a bu- reaucrat to helping senior citi- zens make their needs known to the federal government. Recently acclaimed presi- dent of the Ottawa Senior Citizens Council, Mr. Turnbull said: "We need to get organiz- ed so we can get a meeting with the cabinet and have our proposals considered. This piece-meal stuff just gets lost." Senator Muriel Fergusson, former Speaker of the Senate, told the council's annual meeting: "There are two million Canadians over 65 now and in 15 years there will be three million. Ours is the fastest growing age group. Senior citizens now form a lot of voters and that's seldom recognized. "If we agree on what we want, and work together, we could have a great influence on legislation." Many people do their best work in the last part of their lives, she said. She gave as ex- amples Leonardo da Vinci, who painted his Last Supper at 80; Sai ah Bernhardt, acting her finest at 79, not to mention Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill and Chairman Mao Tse-tung. "The stupid appearance of the rule which forces men and women over 65 to retire is wasteful. "I know doctors and businessmen who have gone to developing countries and im- parted their skills to others there because Canada had dis- carded them for being too old." Senator Fergusson said ap- proximately 95 per cent of senior citizens are capable of living independently if a few extra services can be provid- ed such as meals-on-wheels or someone to shovel the snow. Reduced travel rates, free college eduction and a govern- ment department for senior citizens are ideas she says need support. "The government has contributed a lot of money to institutions but it would be so much better if they would pay for these extra services in- stead." 'Here's Y' tells all Wondering about fitness or YMCA ac- tivities? You might find some of the answers in "Here's Here's Y is a new publication the first issue appeared this month dedicated to increasing fitness awareness and explaining YMCA projects and activities. "I guess you could call it says YM staff member Pat O'Brien when asked if he's editor of the publication. Mr. O'Brien is interested in hearing from readers who have specific questions on fitness and health. Sub- missions in the form of letters or brief ar- ticles will be considered. The publication is financed out of the YM's promotional and advertising budget, Mr. O'Brien says. Only 60 issues were printed for the first edition. Mr. O'Brien says numbers will be increased according to interest. "I think we'll print 100 copies of the January he adds. "The December issue went in four days." "We hope demand for the publication will says Mr. O'Brien. "We are par- ticularly trying to reach the businessman, trying to get more people interested in fitness programs." The first issue of Here's Y went mainly to Y members, but copies will be made available to the public in subsequent months.
