Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February THE LETHMIDQE HERALD 21 PWPneeds more members Bride-to-be has 'last fling', worries friend Parents Without Partners, Inc., is a unique international non-profit, non-sectarian, educational, social and child- orientated organization. The local FWP group, was organized last year and is devoted to the welfare and interest of single parents and their children. Barbara Fidlin, member of PWP, says the organization tries to meet the needs of many lonely and often discouraged single parents and their children in Lethbridge and district. "The number of members has declined quite badly lately for some reason. At one time there were 60 members but only IS showed at the last she says. "The group is still in the formative stages and through new programming we hope the membership will build up again."

Bedwetting drug cure dangerous LONDON (Renter) Parents and doctors have been warned against an apparently growing trend to prescribe anti-depressants to cure children of bedwetting. Two doctors from Glasgow's Royal Hospital for Sick Children say they are concerned at the increasing numbers of children being poisoned by these drugs. Thirty such cases had been brought to the hospital in the past 18 months, more than triple the previous rate, and 60 per cent of these children had been poisoned by tricyclic anti-depressants prescribed for bedwetting. One two-year- old died of heart failure. "Clearly, parents must be warned very carefully of the danger of these doctors K. M. Goel and R. A. Shanks wrote in the issue of the British Medical Journal issued Thursday. The drugs have only a short- term effect in preventing bedwetting, and it is ques- tionable whether the risk is worth-while at all, they write. Location of rape centre kept secret TORONTO (CP) A 24- hour centre offering moral, legal, medical and social support to rape victims throughout the Metropolitan Toronto area opened Thursday, bat the location of the 50-member volunteer centre will be kept secret be- cause of problems in other cities involving rape centres. Carolyn Bode, 36, one of the volunteers, said that many of the centres in the United States have been harassed and workers beaten up, by and "disturbed" Rape Crisis Centre, as it wiD be called, will attempt to help "the many women and men" who are "afraid to go through the experience of talking to police, doctors, lawyers and even friends and Miss Bode said. When a person calls a local number following an offence, two volunteers are sent to visit the individual and offer their services, which include accompanying the person to hospital or police headquarters and helping to fill out all necessary forms. Miss Bode said incidents of reported rape in the Metro area have increased 21 per cent in the last year and that estimated hundreds of cases are nevei reported. Starting tonight, and continuing for the next few months, PWP is undertaking a study on humanism with assistance and guidance from Rev. Ken Jordan of First United Church. "We would like to encourage both men and women interested, to come to the meetings and get in on the activities says Mrs. Fidlin. Meetings are held every first and third Fridays of the month at 8 p.m. in the basement of Immanuel Lutheran Church.

I think she is making a terrible mistake. She is having a sizzling affair with a guy, and it's not the one she is marrying. I've tried to talk sense to her but she keeps saying, "This is my last fling. I must get it out of my system before I settle In the meantime she talks about "Mr. Fling" constantly, and rarely says one word about her fiance. I think she is marrying the wrong guy. Or, more to the point, she isn't ready to get married at all. My problem is, I'm the only one who knows about this ,mess and I feel like a hypocrite being in the wed- I am a good Christian, Ann, and I believe in Divine Guidance. I've been praying every night, but so far no answer. Can you help? Ar- tificial Calla Lilies Dear Lil: It's not easy to pinch-hit for "Divine but I'll do my best. For openers: The problem isn't yours. It's your nutty girlfriend's. Keep your mouth shut and continue to pray. Dear Ann Landers: My parents and I get along pretty well. The only serious arguments we have are about my friends. My mom and dad are on my-back a lot because the kids I have over 'to the house don't stand up and say heUo when they come into the room. My dad especially freaks out if a guy just sits. This morning I caught holy hailstones. Last night there Ann Landers and board (a modest sum) but somehow she was always "a little short." For the past five months the hasn't paid were about eight kids here. When they left, not one of them went out to the patio to say goodnight to my parents. At breakfast this morning Mom said, "I certainly hope you have better manners when you are in THEIR What's the matter with these kids? I agree that my folks have a point. Should I tell them? Ft. Lawterdale Dear Ft. Laid.: Unfor- tunately, your friends were not taught manners when they were younger. It's still not too late to learn, however, and I think you should mention it. When an adult comes into the room, teen-agers, both boys and girls, should stand. And before they leave a house they should say goodnight to the parents, of the host or hostess, if they are available. Dear Ana Landers: Our 22- year-old daughter is being married soon. Marcia lived at home and agreed to pay room I happen to know that Mar- cia has several hundred dollars worth of unpaid bills. She can't resist "a bargain." The girl could open up a costume jewelry store and a sport shop. Her closets were so full last spring she gave ten outfits to a girlfriend. I 'asked her if her fiance knows about her bills. She jaid yes, but I don't believe her. I'm afraid she's going to be in for trouble when she springs these bills on him. Should I tell him and spare Marcia the trouble later? Worried Mom Dear Mom: No. This is not your department. But explain to Marcia that if she doesn't level with her fiance in ad- vance, it could get the marriage off to a very poor start. Confidential to What's The It's been said that all the world loves a lover, but they identify with the losers. Add to this the eternal verity that most folks have to have someone to be better than.
