Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 1, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE H6RALD - \% Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently a woman wrote to you and described what a terrible time she had giving birth to her baby. Her husband was' playing poker and refused to leave the game because "he was stuck." She went on to say that no man in the world would go through labor pains the second time, and she stated categorically that women are more stoical than man. that they stand up under duress better and are without question the superior scx. I am a husband who would gladly go through a pregnancy and the labor rather than put my wife through it again. Why? Not because I want to spare her the pain, but because I want to spare myself the torture of hearing how lousy she feels the whole nine months and how much she suffered in the labor room. Our little boy is three years old now and she is still talking about it. Lately she has been pestering me to get her pregnant again and I hate to think of it. What should I do? - Reluctant Dragon DEAR DRAG: Aw, go on. Make the girl happy. Until you can get. Mother Nature to reverse the charges, it will be eve'r thus. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What is your opinion of middle-aged women mowing their lawns? We moved to the suburbs two years ago and two of my neighbors have told me that I am damaging the prestige of the neighborhood because I am out in front like a common laborer. And get this-my husband was informed last week that it looks "low class" to wash his own car in the driveway. The neighbor who told him said, "People who live out here should be able to afford to have their cars washed in a garage." My husband and I are both puzzled. We don't want to decrease the property values in Highland Park but we do love the exercise and thoroughly enjoy these physical chores. What is your advice? - Vim and Vigor Dear V. and V.: Too bad more suburban dwellers don't mow their own lawns and wash their own cars. They could use a little exercise other than elbow-bending. What a sad commentary when manual labor is considered "low class." Tell your neighbors you have no plans to hire someone to do for you what you prefer to do for yourselves. Make no apologies whatever. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Lately you've printed several let- j ters from readers who are concerned about who should give j the bride away if her mother has remarried and she has both i a natural father and step-father. The new answer is one you should pass on to your reactors. Nobody needs to give the bride away anymore. This is an outmoded custom based on the theory that the girl was the property of her father, and he was handing her over to another male. People are getting more sensible and less bound by convention. I'd like to see this part of the ceremony thrown out by everyone - On With The New DEAR ON: O.K., throw it out of your ceremony, if you want to, but do you mind if a few million people leave it in for the sake of tradition? The wedding ring is a symbol of the leg-iron once applied to prevent the bride from running away. Want to abolish that, too?

The climate here isn't what I like. The sum- j cause I mer is nice, but these winters i municate aren't fun and there's little to : do." Nada Cumora, one of the girls involved in the program, said she "enjoyed the country very much," and had hoped to return someday to take up residence. Both agreed they had not found differences in clothing, music, entertainment and general outlook of the youth in Canada. "What is different is the educational system here," explained Nada. "At home, we take in a very broad and detailed scope of subjects, while we've noticed that here the students go in a lot more for specialization - they pick one or two things and study them in depth." I studied my language and Russian in school," she added, "but didn't take any English. At first, when we all arrived in Montreal, I shied away from the Canadians in the group be-just couldn't com-and thought they'd laugh at me. "After a while. I got used to them, and now I do try to get some English into what I say -but it's hard." the communities we the opportunity to gel a part of Canadian Silvo explained the idea behind the project was to exchange cultural ideas. This was the first time Canada and Yugoslavia had participated. "We all had to complete detailed forms, and once we were chosen to be part of the tour, we met for the first time and were flown to Montreal. "There we were joined by some Canadians and started to travel. Our expenses are paid for by the federal government, and we get a token dollar pa' day, just to keep us in cigarettes.

"We've seen the Hutterite colony, and the Blackfoot reserve, and have piaas to go to recreational activities as well as going to both schools." she said. The group of 11 Yugoslavs and 10 Canadians will leave Coaldale Feb. 7 or 8 for Vancouver. "There are actually four groups of us here." continued Silvo, "in Edmonton. Pentic-ton, Vancouver and Coaldale. "We'll switch places with the Vancouver group, stay there for one month and then return to Montreal." As of the middle of March, the Canadian portion of the tour will be over, and all participants will fly to Yugoslavia for a five-month stay. j The Canada World Youth voluntary * project is a private non-profit ' association set up by a group of citizens, mostly in Quebec, who are interested in youth's role in society and development ^S a woman driver, I'm proud of the fact that I've never had an accident or been the cause of one. When my comrades roll their eyes and shake their heads in sad remembrance of the four-car pile-up they had last snowfall, i sit smiling, safe with my knowledge. But, during a recent gab session with the girls, they forced me to tell all, and listened happily as I recounted a true-life adventure. The incident happened one fine summer day. shortly after 1 had borrowed a friend's car. Actually, it was half car and half truck with a standard column shift and a temperamental clutch. The beast behaved as long as I spoke to it sweetly, and had served me well all week. On that particular day, my mother and I had planned a shopping expedition, which began with a dash to the corner store for a retainer bag of chips. I slammed on the brakes, put the truck into neutral and ignored the emergency brake. There was a slight incline, and to be on the safe side I sat for a moment and waited tor the truck to roll backward. It didn't. So off I went, leaving my mother alone in the truck. Still cautious. I glanced back a few times and sure enough both truck and moth- I car- er were m place, so ried on into the store. Chips in hand and money on the counter. I. turned to leave. Being astute, f noticed all was not well on the outside. The truck had run off into the street and was now being driven back to it's place by a strange man. Mother was a little, pink-housecoated, barefooted lump on the road, slippers spread around her. and the centre of attention for all who passed by. She picked herself up. dusted off and in between cuss words showed me her injuries. She had bits of gravel pebbles embedded in enkles; tire marks over feet: and a sore bottom. All testified to the fact thai she'd just been run over by the front wheels of the truck after jumping out to avoid being hurt. The more 1 chuckled and carried on. the more explicit became her comments about a stupid daughter who would let a truck run over her own mother. She was not at all amused. The next several weeks, the tale was told and re-told for all who ventured near. Since then, mother's phobia has progressed to a point where she refuses to let me out of the car until she's sure it's turned off. And even then she's wary. and her her dalei%dain local La officers [""BAKER'S FABRIC CENTRE~| I"A MEASURE FOR QUALITY BY THE YARD" I Specializing in Fabrics, | , Drapery, and Sewing Needs Centre Village Mall Phone 328-4536 About 10 people made use of the birth control and information centre in its first week of operation, counsellor Claranne Bush said here "We expect more people will be using our service when it is better known." she said.
