Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta _____________.Thundoy, Decembfr 34, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HtRAtD 19 Ann Landers In 1955, the year Ann Landers began writing this column, she produced a special essay for Christmas Day Reader re- extremely high and she has reprinted the column annually, with topical modifications. This is Ann's Clu-istmas message for 1970. Todav is Christmas. All about us we bear talk of peace on good will toward men. Yet we know, to our sorrow, there is no peace and in the hearts of many men, there u, no good will. The mood of America vacillates between fear and the child-like hope that somehow everything will turn out all right Yet we are uptight, anxious, frightened, sick ot war, puzzled by oxir young and torn by conflicting emotions. Our vouth insists that civilization is out 01 join... resent having to live in a dangerous and untidy world they never made. But what generation ever made the world it had Despite "progress" of which we boast, what progress have we made? Is it progress when average, everyday citizen are afraid to walk within blocks of their own homes after dark. Is it progress to spend billions to put a man on the moor, where no man lives, while in our own country, 10 million peo- ple are inadequately fed and 20 million live in hovels and 5 is the age of protest, the big copout, the and the undressed. The blurring of the sexes. Young rebels spit in the face of conformity and stare us down with ejes Uke hypodermic needles. Some fear we are heading.toward LociafdWay going the way of the Romans and the Babylon- ians Others applaud the new morality and dance on the grave of "phony Puritanism." They herald the sex revolution atAsymp- tomatic "of a maturing society which will encourage creatiwl} and promote better mental health. Members of the Now Generation are searching for drugs to "expand their when in reality they have merely opted to anesthetize themselves against the pain of growing Up and accepting responsibility. Yet, we cannot tot many of their complaints are valid and much of what they against is, indeed, despicable and needs to be crlgS. Vs raises unsettling questions for which there are of us must make a series of smalldeci- sions. These decisions determine the direction in which our lives will move. No one, irrespective of how wise, how highly principled or experienced, can make the right decision every toe. To err or fail is no disgrace. The disgrace liesin not learning from our mistakes, not recovering from our defeats, not getting up to try again. Since this is a problem column, I hear more about failure than I hear about victory. Does this depress me? No, it does nT After fifteen years of this work I still find ,t immensely rewarding. I realize that many people who write to me don t want advice, they merely need someone to listen. I have been entrusted with the largest reading audience in the world. What a magnificent opportunity to shine a spot- light on ignorance and fear. There is no greater satisfaction than to serve, and I will continue to do my best. May the new year bring peace, good health and contentment to you all. Ann Landers.________________ Couples find new love Over 40 isn't over the according to research ROXBURY, Conn. Sex is the prerogative of the mature as well as the young, although both groups may have some trouble acknowledging it. This is the new of writer Jhan Rob- bins who says, "Sex is a nice three letter word that belongs to the 50- or 55-year-old woman as much as it does to the 21- year-old girl." Bobbins is co-author of An Analysis of Human Sexual In- a book based on the recent findings of the Masters Budget of Sigma Chapter includes many donations Sigma Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi allocated in 1970 to purchase locally manufactured dishes for the Lethbridge YWCA, from a project of ad- vertising with 31 local busi- nesses, according to a press release from the chapter. There were also sufficient funds from the project for a scholarship in physical ed- ucation for a girl at the uni- versity of Lethbridge, to be awarded during the spring con- vocation. Another award of was provided for an advance female student of a local figure skating club to continue skating instruction.

"Many Mr. Robbins says, "think the whole sexual process must stop when they reach menopause." Yet, he points out, Dr. William Masters j and other authorities have not- ed that there need not be a loss of sexual responsiveness at this age. On the contrary, research in this area has revealed that the sexual drive in older wom- en may become intensified rath- er than diminished. I HEALTH, A FACTOR Some women in this age group, however, according to j Dr. Masters, have a number ot menopausal symptoms which can interfere with their sense of well-being. These include hot and cold flushes, emotional in- stability, headaches, spinal aches and a "tired feeling.'1 inch symptoms can be eased, he believes, with hormone n> ilacement therapy under the supervision of a physician. The Masters and Johnson findings Isq reveal that such hormonal "may help m a n y women return to a more active sex interest." Commenting on these find- ngs, Mr. Robbins notes there is no reason why married couples in reasonably good health who are in their fifties, sixties and even the "late, late year s" someone who has learned to play it." HLs wife. June Robbins, is co- author of "An Analysis of Hu- man Sexual Inadequacy" pub- lished by Signet Books.

A Christmas party was enjoy- ed bv all. the greatest Christmas gift of all tin Tum birth of Christ, little lights ap- peared as if by miracle on the trees of the forest in the hills surrounding Bethlehem. The Irish people have adopt- ed this tradition, and it has be- come one of their most distinc- tive Christinas customs. The custom comes from the recollection of the wean1 search of Mary and Joseph for lodgings in the night. The can- dle in the window invites any who are without a home, to come in and join in the cele- brations with the family. On the eve of Christmas, Dec. 24, the head of the house- hold, just after sunset, sets a candle in the principal window, usually the kitchen, as in these homes, the kitchen and living room are one and the same. Then the youngest child of the family lights the candle which is to burn for the remainder of its existence. The candles, and the making of them, are part of a skilled craft which results in candles which vary from one half pound to one pound candles which are usually two feet tall, to the six pound candles sought in the Killamey district. Colors range with the various regions of the country. Lime- rick and Clare prefer to use white candles, although red and green candles are popular everywhere. Pink is the chosen color for candles in the Mid- lands, while blue is the only should not continue their scs life. But, he says, social disap- proval by the young sometimes gets in the way. Too often we have "emb arrassed laughs when we think of mother and father or grandmother and grandfather having sexual rela- tions. "We feel it's all riyht for us." he comments wryly, "but not for them." BACK FROM TIE BRINK Mr. Robbins reports that a number of mature couples who sought help at the Masters anil Johnson clinic in St. Louis "had just about given up hope of having an adequate sex life, be- lieving that nothing could be done for them." Some, he smtw were on the verge of divorce. After treatment, though, many became more optimistic about their personal lives. One wom- an. Mr. Robbins notes, soon re- j alized she could bo a good sex- j iial partner although she had fears about this before. "She i had believed that sex was no j longer her prerogative, that it! just couldn't happen. When she realized that it could, she be-: came a changed he! said. i Citing a quotation from his book, Mr. Robbins concluded: "There is more delight in sex for a couple who have learned it and each other, as there is more delight in the cello fori fun program ai Family The local Family Y is spon- soring a Christmas fun projirotn for children!
