Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBHiOGi HERALD Wednesday, December 18, 1974 Immigration laws 'outdated' discriminate against epileptics VANCOUVER (CP) A British born woman has con- vinced Canadian Immigration Authorities that her epileptic condition shouldn't bar her from immigrating to Canada with her Vancouver born husband. Vivienne Anderson, 29, arrived here on the weekend with her husband Richard, also 29, on a special ministerial permit, valid for one year and renewable an- nually. THE BETTER HALF But the permit can be revoked at any time and it doesn't entitle her to become landed immigrant or to qualify for citizenship. "I'm pleased about what has happened so far but our work isn't finished Mrs. Anderson said in an interview. She said the permit only gives her the right to work in Canada. "Yet our children would be Canadian citizens. We've been told that, medically, there's By Barnes 'I don't know which one of those Stanley would like best. Maybe I should just give him the money and let him make his own down payment." no reason why we shouldn't have children." The Andersons met two years ago while they were working in London. They married in May, 1973. Mrs. Anderson has an honors degree in history from London University and speaks both English and French. But instead of the customary simple formalities involved in a foreign born wife joining her Canadian hus- band in Canada, there was an exhausting and frustrating campaign of letters, telephone calls, interviews, legal research and tears. Epilepsy, a neurological disease which may cause severe muscle spasms, con- vulsions and menibry im- pairment, can result in a person being declared a prohibited immigrant under Section 5 of the Canada Im- migration Act, they dis- covered. Earlier this year, Mrs. Anderson took the required medical examination, but following fruitless discussions with a Canadian immigration officer in England, the couple wrote to Premier Dave Barrett, and Immigration Minister Robert Andras. They visited Canada in May this year and wrote to the British Columbia Epilepsy Association. The association wrote to the immigration department and was told that each application of this nature is dealt with individually. the Andersons are convinc- ed that it was their political letter writing that resulted in the permit. "Epileptics can be mildly handicapped and lead almost perfectly normal lives providing they have proper Mrs. Anderson said. Mrs. Anderson contracted epilepsy about five years ago but said she has not had a seizure since a balanced treat- ment was evolved in the summer of 1973. She said Canada's Immigra- tion Laws concerning epilep- tics are outdated and archaic because the disease can now be controlled by proper medication. The Andersons said Mr. Andras announced on a radio program in November there will be revisions to the im- migration act but the minister did not indicate what the changes would be.

If followed they are guaranteed to produce a spoil- ed brat who will later develop into a thoroughly messed up adult. 1. If your child has trouble with a teacher, don't go to the school and talk to the teacher. Run directly to the principal, to the superintendent of schools, or to the head of the board of education. It's always best to go straight to "the top." 2. Whenever your child com- plains about how mean or un- fair a teacher is and describes some incident of cruelty or in- justice, accept every word as the gospel truth. You know YOUR child would never color or slant the facts. 3. Don't bother to write a thank you note or offer a word of praise if a teacher does something special for your child. After all, teachers are paid by YOU, the tax- payer. That's thanks enough. 4. When your child com- plains that there is too much homework, agree with him and if necessary do it for him. Children need recreation and rest. 5. If your child reports that the teacher embarrassed him in front of the whole class for some little thing he did, phone the school and make it clear that you will not permit any teacher to discipline your child because he is very sen- sitive "not like most children." 6. Don't bother about PTA meetings, Visiting Night, or any of the other school func- tions that make for better relationships between parents and teachers. They are a bore. We appreciate your help, Ann Landers. You are a real friend. Teacher Dear O.T.: Thanks for a fine set of rules. I agree that if followed, they will produce a permanently damaged child and chronically miserable nsrents. Dear Ann Landers: I hope my letter isn't so personal that you can't reword it and use it in your column. My former problem is one that millions of women still suffer from. I hope I can help them through you. For ten years of marriage I had a very difficult time en- joying sex. Most of the time it was a faking satisfac- tion (and orgasm) so my husband's feelings would't be hurt. Several months ago I conf id- ed this to my new gynaecologist (after having been told by two others that my "problem" was "95 per cent A simple sur- gical procedure called a "dor- sal clip" was suggested. It has changed my sex life com- pletely. Now I need no longer pretend. The enjoyment is real. I'm so happy about the change in my life that I want to shout it from the housetops but of course, I can't. But you can. Will you? Dear Re: Your problem was at least in part physical, since the dorsal clip obviously helped. The decision should be made by a gynaecologist, however, and not be sought as the magic solution to a problem which, in most cases, is psychological. Dear Ann Landers: This friend at work was very plea- sant until I borrowed from her. I had hoped to pay it back within a month, but un- expected expenses came up and I was unable to. I'm not a deadbeat and WILL pay even- tually but I'm amazed at her coolness. What do you think about this? Disappointed Dear Dis: I think Mark Twain was right when he said, "The holy passion of friendship is so sweet, so steady, loyal and enduring that it will last a whole lifetime if not asked to lend Kiss from Grandma Ann, a six-foot, 200- pound baby giraffe that lives at the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, III., gets a nuzzle from her grand- mother.

Community calendar Report examines school sports VANCOUVER (CP) Two university professors believe schools should pay more attention to choosing sports that fit a child's build. In a study for the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, Simon Fraser University Kinesiology Professor William Ross and University of British Columbia Physical Education Professor Robert Hindmarch have found that children mature physically at vastly different rates. They found that a normal 12 year old can weigh about 70 to 150 pounds and be between four feet two inches and five feet seven inches tall. Co or- dination and muscular strength also can be at widely varying stages of development. That means, physically, a nine year old doesn't have much chance to beat out a 15 year old for a place on a competitive hockey team. But a child may face just that hurdle playing in one of Canada's age class leagues where classification is bas- ed on chronological age, rather than physical build. Mr. Ross believes that the competitive philosophy should be changed although he ad- mits abolishing age classifica- tion won't necessarily solve the problem since social development also is a factor. "We ought not to be too ex- clusive on the basis of he said. Besides documenting different development timetables, The Ross-Hind- march report also looks at the relationship between body build and different sports. idea is that if one person is, for example, 10 per cent taller than another, then he will be about 20 per cent stronger and about 30 per cent heavier. This is because the strength of a muscle depends on its cross section and weight, as well as total volume. Therefore, the report con- cludes, a small man is stronger, relative to his body weight. Mr. Ross said smallness is an advantage for the gymnast because he has to propel his own body, but for a football lineman, all that counts is total strength. He pointed out that a I muscular 250 pound tackle can seldom do more than a couple of chinups.
