Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 50, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAtD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My mother used to say, "Fools have parties and wise people enjoy them." I am beginning to realize tow right she was. I've spent 30 years entertaining clods who never returned an invitation or sent a thank you note. I was always the one who gave the going-away party or the "welcome to Houston" party. I was the one who made social contacts lor the newly divorced and the widowed. I was the nul who had a dinner so "old acquaintances" could renew their friendship and I never heard from a single one of them until the next year when they started calling to ask if I was going to give another one. I don't know how many times I've introduced interesting couples in my home and the next thing I knew they were entertaining each other and leaving us out. Here is my problem: My husband loves to have people around. He is hnppiest when we are entertaining. For ex- ample, if I call him at his office and ask if he'd like to have dinner in town and go to the theatre, he always in- quires, "Did you invite anyone When I say to him, "No just us he loses interest and says, "Let's skip it." What should I do, Am Landers? Please rush your advice. It's time for another party. DEAR CHUMP: The first thing you ought to do is ex- amine your motives. Why do you give parties? Is it's so you'll be invited back, quit, because it's not working. If, on the other hand, you entertain because your husband is happiest when people are around, I say that's a good enough reason. So, continue to be the hostess with the mostest and stop thinking of yourself as a chump, t V DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell newlyweds not to have children unless they really want them. Hy husband and I have been married 16 years. We have three sons. We didn't want any. His parents kept bribing us and we were foolish enough to go for it. Every argument we have is over the boys. Our marriage would be perfect if it weren't for these monsters. They have ruined our relationship. If we weren't afraid of what people would say we'd put them all up for adoption. We've discussed it many times but we don't have the nerve. I am not completely sober as I write this letter, but so help me, word of it is true. I hope you will print it for the benefit of young people who are very much in love as we were, once. I'd give anything to turn back the clock. Erred DEAR THKICE: 1 feel scrry for you but sorrier for your children. I hope you will consider counselling. You need it desperately. You said you weren't sober when you wrote to me. I hope you are sober when you read my advice. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "I'm going to take this year's Christmas bonus and blow it all on a a Monday, Dei. 20 JACKPOT 57 NOS.

'A' N. No children under 16 allowed Christmas around the world Whether it's Santa Clans, Santa Kurosu, Pere Noel, La Befana, or you v.'lio provide the gifls on Christmas, you share with the rest of the world a feeling that you have trans- mitted the spirit of the season. For no matter where you go, gift giving is one of the most popular customs associated with the holiday season. In Mexico, they hang a large j ceramic figure called a pinala from the ceiling which is; stuffed with presents. Blindfold- j ed children and adults then strike at it with long poles. When it finally breaks, spilling j its riches to the every- one has a gift. When Santa Kurosu (Japa- nese for Santa Clans) opens his bag on Christmas Eve, a strange smell may fill the air for some Japanese villag- ers consider it extremely good luck to give fish as Christmas presents! j In Spain, gifts are exchanged j on January 6th, in honor of the Epiphany, to celebrate! the ar- rival of the Three Wise Men at Bethlehem. Adults in France exchange gifls on New Year's Day, but their impatient youngsters are visited hy Pere Noel on Christ- mas just like their North Amer- ica cousins. The German child finds candy and nuts in his stocking, or, possibly a potato de- pending upon his "report" to Santa. Ita'iTan children put out their shoes to eagerly await pre- sents from a female version of Santa called La Befana who, riding a broomstick, brings gifts to good children and ashes to bad ones. While wailing for Befana, who comes on January 6th, the children and their eld- ers draw small gifts on Christ- mas Eve from a jar called the "Urn of Fate." In Sweden, the feast of St. Lucia, on December 13th ushers in the Christmas season. Each community chooses a lovely Lu- cia Queen to represent the young girl martyred for her re- ligion in ancient Rome. The Queen is feted and entertained royally. Throughout Sweden, in families with daughters, the prettiest is traditonally chosen as Lucia. Her "gift" is to wait on everyone else for the day! "Christmas isn't Christmas without said a con- cerned Amy in the classic Lit- tle Women, and tradition bears out her statement. Whatever the amount spent, whatever the present, each year people all over the world are still proving that they agree with Amy's sentiments.

(CP) The poor quality of reading material available to children in rural areas made a deep impression on Ann Blades. And so did Mary Fehr, a Grade 2 pupil in the little schoolhousc in the isolated community of Mile 18, just off the Alaska Highway, where helping him with his exam papers. Mrs. .Blades and her husband taught for a year. These were the reasons be- hind Mary o[ Mile 18, written and illustrated by Mrs. Blades and p it b I i s h e d by Tundra Books of Montreal. Four years ago, the Blades bought a beat-up old car for (to cover the transfer of ownership) and set out for the Mennonite community of Mile 18, about 50 miles from Fort St. John in northeastern Brit- ish Columbia. "We had spent most of our lives in the city and the thought of teaching in a re- mote area was an exciting Mrs. Blades said. She was 10 at the time. She said the car proved to be a godsend over the year, particularly when their only source of water became con- taminated in warm weather and froze in cold weather. "We took the back seat out of the car and drove five miles with bottles to get water from a spring. We didn't have conveniences such as running water, electricity or tele- phone." She said their chemical toi- let was a was in- they bathed in a large square galvanized tub. But the people in the com- munity more than compen- sated for any inconveniences. "There were close to 150 people and we had (10 children in the Mrs. Blades said. "The families were really spread out." The children came to school in trucks until cold weather and snow came, when they were brought on f 1 a t b e d s pulled hy a tractor. She said there were times when the temperature was 40 below zero with a 25-mile-an- hour days, every- one stayed home. "Half the families were she said. The girls didn't cut their hair and some children were not al- lowed to come to any school parties. "Mary had long braids and the huskiest voice I've ever heard on a was in- credible. She had amazing en- thusiasm and her favorite ex- p res si on was 'Oh, how beautiful.' "Every little thing she saw was beautiful to her." Mrs. Blades said she was appalled at the books provided for the children. They were of such poor quality she felt she could do better so she started to work on one of her own.
