Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Mondesy, February 12, 1973 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - H DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter of 19 refuses to go to college, has no job and is not interested in job training of any kind. Her boyfriend is 21. He also lives with his parents. They have been "going steady" for four jears and see each other every day and every night. (He works a split shift.) So far as we know they have no plans to get married - now or maybe ever. We give our daughter no allowance. She eats no meals with us, but takes junk to her room. She does no houseowrk and fights with her brothers and sisters constantly. Last week I moved her furniture to the garage. She moved it back. I told her then to get out. She said she would, with pleasure, when DEAR ANN LANDERS: I agree with you. Some other name should be given to a male nurse. Either "medic" or "corpsmam" would be a great improvement. I also agree with you that there is nothing unmanly about giving bedside care to the sick and infirm. Thanks for your stand on both issues. - C. W., Director of * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I read with interest your comments on the deficiencies of today's education. May I go further? One of the most vital deficiencies is in consumer education. No one teaches students how to shop in a supermarket, how to buy beef, fresh fruits and vegetables, how to buy insurance, how to establish credit, how to trade a car - what to watch out for. No instruction whatever on what to do if appliances don't work or where to take any number of complaints that consumers have in regard to faulty merchandise No instruction on when to sue, or when to notify a better business bureau. We are a nation of overfed and undernourished. We fall for.every trick in the book because we are not informed. When we try to get consumer education into the schools we encounter a brick wall of she can afford a place of her own. My husband and I are physically sick from this girl's terrible attitude toward everything in life that should mean something. Must we keep her here until she gets ready to leave? Please advise. - Up Against It DEAR UP: There are legal steps you can take to get a 19-year-old out of your house, but I suggest a few visits with a counsellor before you see a lawyer as a last resort. Obviously, there is a serious problem of communication in your family, and you might profit from some professional guidance. If you think my answer is a cop-out, let me assure you it contains excellent advice, and I hope, for the sake of everyone concerned, that you will take it. ? ? Action Line, Akron Beacon Journal DEAR C.W.: How about "paramedic?" Medic means a physician or surgeon, and somehow "corpsman" is too close to "corpse." It's good to get a letter from Akron. And please say hello to your publisher. He's a honey and one of my first friends in the newspaper business. opposition. The schools are against, it! Yet teachers contact us by the dozens and ask what to teach their students - and how. Will you please say a good word for consumer education, Ann? People listen to you. - Mrs. D. R. J. Super-Mkt. Chairman Committee, Va. Citizen's Consumer Council DEAR MRS. D. R. J.: I received dozens of letters from readers urging me to get behind consumer education. You said it best. Here's your letter and my thanks for writing it. What's prudish? What's O.K.? If you aren't sure, you need some help. It's available in the booklet: "Necking and Petting - What Are the Limits?"

YWCA names new director By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) -The new executive director of the YWCA says she sees today's Y as a facilitator, helping other people to get things done. "It's all very vague and idealistic, but I think it's important that our question is not where is the Y going, but where is Canadian society going, and how do we fit into it," she said in an interview. "I visualize it as an agency that facilitates community development, riot as decided by the Y but by finding out what the people in the community think the needs and issues are." Miss Henders is a native of Montreal who began her Y career in Saskatoon. Since 1968 she has worked with the YWCA of Nigeria and with the World Y in Geneva as a program consultant. She said she believes the Y continues to operate in its 80 member countries because it is autonomous in each country and because it has avoided being stamped racist. She acknowledged it has been considered stodgy in some areas and that its Christian or occa- i o n a 1 denominational image cause the people of some nations to look a bit askance.

The acceptance is included in the revised edition of the government printing office's style book. But Robert Kling, assistant to the public printer, says "grammarians are still wrestling" with the term. "It's not a true, abbreviation," he said. "It has no spelled-out form, no accepted pronunciation, no plural and no foreign - language counter part." Women's liberationists be- gan working in mid-1970 popularize the term. to "The agencies I have seen overseas that are unacceptable are the ones that have a heavy control from outside. "I was only in Nigeria at the request of Nigeria. The programs I did while I was there were based on the decision of that Y. Because there was a war on, we got doing rehabilitation, which wasn't anybody's idea of an ideal program, but it was necessary." Miss Henders has spent her first few weeks in the job at the Y headquarters in Toronto, bul she said she feels she is out of touch with the work of the Y in Canada, and she plans to spend the next few months visiting branches. ANN HENDERS . . . executive director avoided. I can't think of anywhere that we have been labelled on the racial thing. Rhodesia and South Africa are multi-racial, which is difficult. "An effort is being made in the Y in the U.S. It is an imperative. 'Our record's not perfect, but it's tried." She says national Ys are autonomous and ask for outside help, if they want it, through the World Y.
