Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tuesday. February 6, 1973 - TH� tETtl35IDCE HERALD - f illmmmiiiiimtiiimNiiiwiuiHiwinmjiMiiiiiJiiir^ Doris Claris Successful living ... Travel and work part of program DEAR DORIS: I'm so embarrassed! My mother let me help with my sister's going-away party (because she has work in a distant city) but my father ruined the whole thing. He has a terrible temper and he got real mad when some boys crashed the party and made a lot of noise with their motorcycles. He is very prejudiced against teen-agers anyway, and he threatened to come home (from a neighbor's across the road) with a whip and straighten them out. It was all my mother could do to stop him. The party had been going so well too. But we had to break up before midnight. All the kids were so nice about it and left without a fuss. Next day we really got a blast and I got'grounded (I'm just 15 and he can boss me) with the added warning never to go to another party. Mother did not want to oppose Dad because he might start drinking again, and he is trying to stop. Subject to a Tyrant DEAR SUBJECT: Sony. Fathers with terrible tempers shouldn't happen to a dog. But did you know that such madness is just that - a bit of unbalance? The drinking is another sign that he hasn't got everything under control. As for the impossible probation on your ever attending another party - how could he make that one stick? Time will change things. If there is a branch of Al-Anon and Alateen in your area, attendance at their group sessions could help you understand and cope. And if he is serious about wanting to quit, Alcoholics Anonymous could well be of great help to him. It was really the noisy crashers who ruined things, wasn't it? They must have known there were no adults at home. How about that? *   DEAR DORIS: In your column you dealt with a letter from a young wife whose husband was so pre-occupied with outside interests that he failed to give her any time for joint social activities. You told her (among other things) that "when the babies start to come" things might be better. Have you any idea how this sentence sounds? It reminds me of the egg-laying activities of certain insects. In this day and age there is no reason for people to have babies inevitably. Nor is there any reason to believe that children strengthen a weak marriage. And in this overcrowded world is there any room for such a statement? You of all people should know the misery that results from people having more children than they can support. They are the deserted wives with six children and under notice of eviction. They are the husbands who can't find work. And the babies come - and come. I am no women's libber. I am nearly 60 years old and I have far some time been inter- ested in and concerned about what is happening to the social structure of the world - my world. Concerned and Angry DEAR CONCERNED: If I gave the impression tlwit babies should be used to strengthen a weak marriage I hasten to take the whole thing back. Nor do I reduce the human race to the status of insects by considering babies inevitable in marriage. Yet the letter from "Lonely Though Married," in its uncon-densed form, suggested to me that there existed between these two a deep regard. And I have seen a newlywed gadding husband turn into a willing stay-at-home father, once he discovered how fulfilling it. was. It is great folly for any married couple to use the baby-producing technique in the hope of saving a weak marriage. Thank you for your forceful expression of opinion. � * * DEAR DORIS: My sister has asked me, what is love? I told her that it was forgetting herself for the other. Being happy when he is, or sad when he is. She has been going with him for some time. I suppose she is cautious, which is good. Since I am not an expert on the subject, I would like your leaflet, "What Is Love?" Thank you for doing such a good job. Twenty cents enclosed. Just Wanting To Help. DEAR JUST WANTING: You are doing a pretty good job yourself. One counsellor I know says the essence of love is being more anxious for the loved one to be happy than for oneself. This is just another way of saying love makes one forget oneself in service to the beloved. My leaflet "What Is Love?" goes into more detail; and tries to help the young people to distinguish between physical attraction and the kind of love which can last for life. Your copy is on its way. DEAR DORIS: Can venereal and other diseases be transmitted through blood transfusions? I'm scheduled for surgery very soon and the thought ot a blood transfusion terrifies me. Don't they check the blood donated for things like this? I was told by a friend they didn't. I'm too embarrassed to speak to my doctor about this - so would you please answer me through the paper soon. Troubled DEAR TROUBLED: Elmentary, .my dear Watson. Calm your fears. A blood donor clinic would not think of receiving gifts of blood without first., -taking samples from the giver" and testing them for impurities of any kind. I am surprised" that anyone in this day and age would make such a statement to you. (For all persons wncemwi with acne, whatever sex or age, my leaflet "Acne - what to do about it" can be helpful. Write for -t, Doris Clark, &S Rosedene Ave., Hamilton, Ont., enclosing 20 cents for the leaflet and ain eight-cent-stamped self - addressed envelope). Almost 50 rural young men and women from Western Canada are working on farms in Europe, Australia and New Zealand this winter. They are all members of the I n ternational Agricultural Exchange Association which organizes tours to its 14-member countries. The association was started in 1965 to give rural youth an opportunity to travel, learn about people in other countries and to see different farming methods. Member countries include the Scandinavian countries, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada. Both spring and fall tours have been arranged by the association every year since 1965, and more than 2,-000 rural youth have taken advantage of this opportunity to see the world. According to the International Agricultural Exchange's Canadian secretary, Mrs. C. M. Oxtoby, there will be a six-month tour to Europe and two 12-month tours to Europe and Australia or New Zealand leaving Calgary about April 25. The cost of the European tour is $445. The costs of the other two tours are $1,759 and $1,700 depending upon the stopovers. One will have stop-overs in Bangkok, Manila, N a d i, Honolulu and Vancouver, while the other will have stop-overs in Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. To qualify for one of these exchange tour s, which are strongly recommended by the departments of agriculture in the western provinces, an applicant must be over 18 years of age and have been approved for a job by the authorities in charge of the program. He or she must also have had some practical farming or horticultural experience as well as satisfactory recommendations from previous employers or teachers. Those in charge of the exchange program, working in cooperation with national agricul- tural organizations in the countries concerned, arrange jobs for all lour members. Individual wishes regarding type of work and the placement of friends near each other are adhered to whenever possible. Male members can expect to be paid approximately $80 to $100 a month gross plus full board and room in Europe. In Australia and New Zealand tiiey will receive in the neighborhood of $120 and $100 respectively, plus full board and room. Female members can expect about 20 per cent less, depending on their qualifications and the type of work they are doing. More detai'ed information on the above tours can be obtained from live International Agricultural Exchange Association, Olds College, P.O. Box 7D0, Olds, Alberta. 4- r LETHBIUOGK By Cathy Murray The first meeting in 1973 0! the Lethbridge and Distrio 4-H Council was held at tin Administration Building on Jan uary 1G.
