Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 14, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Frldcy, Ftbruiry 14, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My mother died recently. I was her only child. She married a second time a man who was several years her senior. His two children were grown by that time and lathough they are my stepsister and stepbrother, I rarely see them and when we do meet, no one is very comfortable. They never liked my mother or me and the feeling was mutual. Neither my stepfather nor my mother left a will. Since everything was in joint names, my mother inherited all his money five years ago, and now, at her death, it is mine. My stepbrother and stepsister are demanding that I share the inheritance with them. I realize that part of the inheritance was their father's money, but I have no idea how much or little it might be. My natural father left some money to my mother, and my. grandparents also left her a modest estate. Frankly, I don't want to give away money to relatives I rarely see and don't care for. It is legally mine and I am not to blame if their father did not write a will. Am I morally obligated to give them something? If so, how much? Suddenly Sol- vent Dear Sud: Since your con- science is obviously bothering you. make a donation in their names to a charitable organization in which they are interested. It won't make them like you any better but it will make you like yourself better which is'more im- portant. t Dear Ann Landers: Recent- ly my wife gave birth to a se- cond child and received many small gifts from friends who live in this apartment building. She insisted that eti- quette called for putting stamps on the notes and sending them through the mail. I said it was ridiculous, since three of the women live on our floor. Although my wife won (they were I'd like your opinion. Daddy Dear Dad: If you had asked me this question three years ago I'd have agreed with your wife. Today, however, I'd hand deliver everything if I could. Would you believe six days for a letter to get from one Loop office to another in Chicago? Well, that's not the half of it. I could write a book about what has happened to some of my mail. (P.S. Last week a postman was arrested here when police found several TONS of undelivered mail in his home.) V Dear Ann Landers: Our son and daughter in law have a huge dog that scares the life out of me. I have never cared for that particular breed. When our daughter in law married Mel, two years ago, "Prince Albert" became part of the family. We live on four acres and Community calendar Southminster Circle Square Dance Club will hold a Valen- tine's Dance at 8.30 p.m. Saturday in Southminster Hall. Guest caller is Orval Martin of Calgary.

Members are asked to bring MSS for the book being com- piled. My husband says I should tell him 1 don't want the hound but I can't bring myself to do it. Would it be wrong to board Albert out and -say nothing, just to keep peace in the family? Needing An Answer Dear Need: What kind of peace would there be if something happened to Albert and he died in the kennel? Such things do occur, you know. Tell your son you want to foot the kennel bill for Albert, because you cannot keep him in your home. have a good caretaker and a fine housekeeper. When our son asked if we would take Prince Albert while they went on a two week holiday, I agreed. Actually I plan to put him in a kennel the minute they are on the plane.

Contributing to society theme behind Age and Opportunity THE BETTER HALF By Barnes WINNIPEG (CP) "You don't (all off the earth at the age of says Yhelta Gold, executive director of the eight Age and Opportunity centres functioning in Winnipeg. "What we're trying to do is to bring older people together to develop meaningful activity to meet their own needs. "We try to help them get off their butts and contribute to society. We tell them they are 3 political force and to go out and clout someone over the head with it." That is the fundamental philosophy of an organization that began about 14 years ago in a church basement and has spread to the point where more than 000 senior citizens have received direc- tion, counselling and remotivation. Contributing to society is the main thrust behind the centre's activities. At election time, for example, senior citizens work as clerks. in polling booths. A senior citizens' band per- forms at hospitals, schools, or any other celebration to which it is invited. People experienced in handicrafts visit hospitals to exchange specialties with less mobile individuals. In addition, a wide range of self- interest activities is offered by the centres, including yoga, photography, arts and languages, cooking, legal and medical advice and a broad spectrum of recreational pastimes. One of the centres occupies two floors of a government subsidized senior citizens' apartment block. It is equipped with facilities for woodwork, pottery, painting, weaving and a host of other creative activities. Its products decorate the walls of a lunchroom, where diners are served cakes and cookies of their own creation. The second floor includes a library, more recreational areas, and board rooms where the executive committee establishes policy and plans activities. Mrs. Gold, who has an arts degree with a major in psychology, joined the project about three years ago after working with youth. She supports.tire theory that the capability to learn docs not decrease with age. "Studies have shown that it's motivation, and not ability, that decreases in old age." Of the approximately senior citizens in Winnipeg, Mrs. Gold es- timates about have visited the centres scattered throughput the city. Some visit only for specific activities, while others spend a good portion of their waking moments pursuing any ac- tivity that meets their Fancy. The centres also provide direction to cope with the limitations of advancing age. "We have pre-retirement services to show senior citizens how to make good use of their leisure Mrs. Gold explained. "Oddly enough, we've found that it's middle-aged people who have the most trouble coping with age. The people who are actually old have usually learned to accept it." The initial step of attempting to per- suade senior citizens to become involv- ed with the activities sometimes creates problems. "Unless a concerted effort is made, there is a real danger of isolation. It's a real problem because there's a danger of people withdrawing completely." That tendency to withdraw into isola- tion due to lack of motivation or oppor- tunity provided the major impetus for the formation of Age and Opportunity. About 14 years ago, it was discovered that many senior citizens were visiting a hospital at regular intervals merely to chat and visit in the waiting room. "It was then Mrs. Gold said, "there was a desperate reed for places where senior citizens could gather." Funded from a variety of including the Winnipeg Foundation, the United Way and the provincial and municipal governments, the centres are operated by a board of private citizens. Grants are given directly to the centres and are used according to the needs and functions of the individual operations. "We are not a government stressed Mrs. Gold. "I sometimes wonder who St. Valentine was most likely he was a candy merchant."
