Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am only a teen-ager but I have something to say to that person who complained about long-winded telephone talkers. She signed her letter, "Calluses On My Ear." Doesn't she realize that just listening to a person can be a great help? Even if you don't say aything but, "Yes. Of course. Oh, sure. You bet. You don't say so?" Many times I've heard my mom spend nearly an hour on the phone and not say any more than that, One day I asked why she let a certain gabby old lady talk her ears off. She said, "That woman needs somebody to listen to her. She DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell me how much of the talking a person does in his sleep makes sense? My husband used to kid me about the things I said and we made a big joke of it. But it's not funny anymore. I know I talk in my sleep because I wake myself up. But I don't remember what I said. I just know I was talking. Now my husband is becoming upset because I am naming people and places and making intimate references to some of the attractive men in our crowd. I swear by everything holy that I have not been unfaithful, but my husband is beginning to have his doubts because of my frequent references to certain people in my 6leep. Or so he says. Please tell me, Ann, is it possible to have fantasies in one's sleep? Or when a person mentions names, does it mean more than that? - Awake Nights Over Dreams DEAR AWAKE: Merely because you mention a man's name in your sleep does not mean you had anything to do with him. Some people have nocturnal fantasies about mo- is very lonely. She needs to know that somebody cares. It puts me behind a little in my work, but it's worth it." I learned a lot about living that day. And now that I'm older I know what she was talking about. Maybe if you print my letter it will educate somebody who doesn't have a mother who understands people as well as mine. -Little T. From Tarry-town DEAR LITTLE T.: Here's your letter - my thanks for writing it. What it all boils down to is sacrificing a little time to be kind. What a wonderful way to start a new year. vie or TV stars, and they've never even met them. They dream about them, talk to them in their sleep and have a lovely time between midnight and dawn. All imaginary, of course. So tell your husband that when he hears you talking, to roll over and go to sleep. It doesn't mean a thing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I were both born and raised in this town. We grew up with the same crowd. One of the girls was widowed last year. She is only 44. Another fellow lost his wife three months ago. These two people know each other but I don't think they realize they might be the perfect pair. Perhaps if a few of us girls start to pair them up for dinner parties, they might "find each other." Right? My husband says "Wrong!" What do YOU say, Ann?-Cincinnati Cupid DEAR CUPID: If you want to ruin a young widow's chances for all time, just start fixing her up with somebody she knows. If you want to do your friend a favor, fix her up with a new face-preferably from out of town. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Dig out some of those old timers . . . It's lime they got some air!"

Saturday, February 3, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 21 Atlantic Silver Spoon Jo-Anne Bennett, a member of staff of the Nova Scotia Museum in Halifax, admires an Atlantic Silver Spoon stove whi ch was made at Lunenburg Foundry in 1 896. The antique heater is one of many interesting numbers on display at the museum. Cop discovers new weapon: friendship is a calling card calendar oj- local L appenmcfd LONDON (AP) - A black woman stood on a street corner with her young son the other day and pointed out a white constable. 'That's OUR policeman," she told the boy. The scene in London's tough Notting Hill Gate area, notorious for race riots in the 1950s, probably would have been unthinkable before the arrival of Constable James S. Yates a year ago. Yates, 25, discovered what may be an important new weap- on for police assigned to areas with tough community problems - the ordinary calling card. He is the first cop in England to use them. The first ones he handed out were mimeographed leaflets. "I am your policeman," they said. "Can I help you" They gave his name, address and telephone number of his police station. Later Yates had formal business cards printed at his own expense with much the same message. As a result, in less Meat if consumers prices can change: alter hi TORONTO (CP) - The only thing the consumer can do to alter meat prices is change buying habits, thereby changing the demands for meats. Then it would take time for a change to show, says G. H. Dickson, executive vice-president of Canada Packers. At an information session for the press, Mr. Dickson said it takes three years to change the level of beef production because it takes that long to produce a calf and grow it big enough to market. The poultry industry can respond to market changes in two to three months, pork in six months to a year. But tlie Canadian consumer, in spite of complaints about the price of food, keeps on buying beef. Statistics Canada figures indicate Canadians are eating three to four per cent more beef every year. In 1971 they ate 86.9 pounds of beef per capita, in 1972 it was up to 90 pounds. Pork dropped to 53 or 59 pounds from 65.9 pounds. Mr. Dickson said people buy beef because they want to and are able to afford it and because of habit. "It's amazing how little change takes place in buying habits. You get a short-term reaction, but people go back to their usual habits. 'People can apparently eat beef day in and day out and never get tired of it. They switch to pork sometimes, but they don't seem to stay on it. Earning power is pretty good related to five years ago. 'And the marketing of cattle is only equal to consumption. Farmers have been cautious. They've matched the increased population, but that's about it. Canada and the U.S. until recently had the highest beef market. Where are you going to go from there?" He said there are some indications that cattle producers now are building breeding herds up a little, which should mean a greater supply. Mr. Dickson said Ms firm would welcome a government inquiry into food prices. "A better understanding of what contributes to the high cost of food has to be good for us. If. we can get uniform (price) cycles, I think everyone would be happier." He said he would accept price controls with wage controls. "In certain circumstances price controls are necessary. Whether we've reached the point where they are necessary, I hesitate to say. "I don't like them as a principle, but sometimes they're the only answer. Unfortunately, I think wage controls must go with them." than a year he became the accepted friend of most of the people he meets white and black, on one of the toughest beats in London. "Being the local policeman, my intention was to get to know the people personally and get myself known to them," explained the Yorkshire - born Yates. RESPONSE ELECTRIC First leaflets went to tenants in a 33-storey subsidized apartment complex. Many were lonely non-white immigrants. Their response to Yates was electric. People wrote on the back of his leaflets, asking for help or advice and mailed them to his station. Yates made a point of answering and came when he was called. He was soon invited to attend various committee meetings on housing and other local problems. Yates built up trust. 'The leaflets were such a success that I thought, the hell with it. Why leave it at that" Yates recalled. "People think the police don't understand their problems. The point I wanted to get across is that I can be one of them," he said. "People are entitled to just as much respect and help if they are unemployed or if they are making �50,000 a year." Like most British police Yates caries no gun. He wears long sideburns, a beard and a smile. About half the people he passes on his rounds say 'Hello Jim' or give some other sign of friendly recognition.
