Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN. LANDERS: I've read your column for years - rarely missed a day. ' Until now" I never had the urge to write to you, but today I must. I want to say something to the teen-agers who signed themselves "The Investigators." They are right when they say they can get into plenty of trouble even ON a bed, and not in it. When I was 17 my boyfriend and I were dancing in my room. The record, stopped and we fell across the bed. We laughed - and he gave me a tender kiss. The next thing I knew we were' embracing - and you can guess the rest. We had not planned on being intimate - DEAR ANN LANDERS.: I realize that customs vary according to locale and since I have been in America only seven months I wonder if you can tell me please if I am being hypercritical. Several showers were given last month for a young bride whose wedding was cancelled suddenly, by mutual agreement. The bride's mother bought time on the local TV station to announce that the wedding was called off and would everyone who would like to have their shower or wedding gift back piease come and get it. it just happened. Nine months later I had a seven-pound baby boy. Until that incident everyone talked about what great, wholesome kids we were. Our liurry-up marriage changed all that. His folks just c6uldn't believe it. So you can see, it can happen on a bed and not in it. If anyone accuses you of having a dirty mind, Ann, please ignore it and tell those kids out there what to expect, when they start fooling around. -S.T.L. in Paducah DEAR S.T.L.: The letter you refer to brought in some mighty weird mail. One young woman wrote that she got into trouble not IN a bed or ON it - but UNDER it. It seems to me that the gifts. should have been returned. To have put the burden on the giver, I thought, was in questionable taste. This is a sticky wicket to say the least and I would like to hear what you have to say. -Around The Bend? DEAR BEND: Customs do vary according to locale, but I know of no place on the face of the earth where it is good manners to publicly request that friends come and get their gifts. The bride's mother should have returned them.

Shown is the Evil Ork and ___ By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist A longing for the good old days has revived a faith in so-called medicinal foods. Brewers' yeast, blackstrap molasses, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, honey and cider vinegar have once more been embodied with magical virtues and the science of nutrition has been forgotten. What is so wonderful in wonder foods? Blackstrap molasses: a byproduct of sugar refining, is a source of available iron but offers little else. Other sources of iron such as meat, eggs and green vegetables are just as good and somehow more appealing and at the same time superior sources of other nutrients. Besides there is NO substantiation to claims that blackstrap molasses cures ulcers, cancer, varicose veins or arthritis. Rose hips: the seed pods of roses are a rich source of vitamin C. There is nothing unique about the vitamin C from rose hips and you may prefer cheaper sources like tomatoes, oranges, grapefruit, broccoli, can-teloupe, strawberries or green pappers. Double-decker toddlers' club bus provides unusual nursery facilities LONDON (CP) - If you are in London's West End and the double-decked bus has children's faces and letters of the alphabet painted all over it, wait for the next one. You have just seen a Mobile Toddlers Club bus run by the Westminster Health Society. Instead of weary passengers straphanging in the aisles, the bus has littlebirds and animals bobbing up and down on strings. No destination is given on the front, but the bus is on its way from its morning site in one part of Westminster to its afternoon parking place in another, where more pre-school children aged three to five J years will attend their own club. The bus was bought from London Transportation December, 1971, by the Westminster Health Society-a charity founded in 1903-with money raised as a memorial to its past chairman, Nellie Paton Walsh, founder of the first Toddlers Club in 1959. There now are eight Toddlers Clubs in.the Westminster district, catering for up to 400 children a day. CHANCE TO LEARN The idea of the Mobile Toddlers Club is to give children in areas where there are inad- Mother continues search for human milk bank PHOENIX, Ariz. (API -The mother of a 10-month-old infant with a l-are hereditary disease says she is trying to set up a human milk bank to keep her child alive. Charles Bennett Smith looks like any other 10-month-old baby, but when he's taken off human milk for just a few hours, burn-like splotches cover his body. His physician says these are manifestations of acrodermatitis enteropathica, a rare ailment for which there is no known cure. But Dr. Selma Targovnik said the disease can be controlled by a combination of mother's milk and drugs called quinilines. Mrs. Charles Smith said she Is trying to form .a human milk bank through Phoenix hospitals. Most babies affected with the disease never live to grow up. Dr. Targovnik said. "In this case, I cannot say for sure how long the child will have to stay on Iranian milk. However, the disease is an inherited disorder and as far as I can tell, it is a.continuous condition," he said. Spokesmen at the Scottsdale Memorial Hospital and Maricopa County Hospital said they were considering the idea of a* milk bank. Now the baby's appearance is normal, but his mother said finding the increasingly larger amounts of human milk he needs each day is becoming more difficult. "He's taking about 25 ounces a day right now and we really don't know what he will need in the future," she said. "But when we try to decrease the amount, he starts breaking out (in blisters) again." equate nursery facilities  a I chance to learn and play with other boys and girls. If it appears that the district can support a permanent preschool group then the society will try to raise the money to set up one of its ordinary Toddlers Clubs and move the bus on elsewhere. At present the bus is parked in Paddington close to a large housing estate in the morning. In the afternoon it moves on to a high-rise housing estate in Pimlico, where mothers welcome its arrival. The children are captivated by the novelty of going to a nursery school in a bus. When they enter the downstairs compartment they find the seats have been removed and a slippery play dip installed. And one of the long seats by the door has been turned into a sand pit. Upstairs a toilet and wash basin have been installed directly over the back platform and down one side of the top deck there are drop-leaf tables so the children can paint and draw while they look out of the windows. CHARGE SMALL FEE The vehicle is able to take up to 18 children at a time, supervised by three nurses. A small fee of about 60 cents a half-day is charged for each child and this includes their morning snack of orange juice and an apple. If a mother is unable to afford as much money it may be reduced. In its early days the society pioneered maternal and child welfare in Westminster. Today it still has an important, role to play in relieving many of the stresses faced by women in bringing up children in built-up inner-city areas. Although its basic work is now subsidized by the Westminster city council the society still depends on fund-raising activities to pay for extya facilities such as the Mobile Toddlers Club. J)n and out The Lethbridge Rotary Club will hold its annual Mardi Gras at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 3. This year's theme is hard times. The dance and buffet dinner will be held in the Civic Sports Centre, with music provided by Marvin Qually. Tickets and other informational available from any club member, or by calling 327-1112. Brewers' yeast and wheat germ: are indeed sources of protein and B vitamins but eating wheat germ and yeast is neither the most appetizing way or the most economical way to obtain these nutrients. Garlic: brought fame to Mediterranean cuisine but it really will not cure intestinal disorders or tuberculosis or prevent cancer, pneumonia or aging. Honey: sometimes called the nectar of the gods, is powerless to cure arthritis. Some claim it can be used without restraint by diabetics. Nothing could be further from the truth. Honey is a good source of energy but otherwise its nutritional value is negligible. Don't be gullible. The Food and Drugs Act states that no food can be labelled or advertised as a treatment, preventative or cure for ceertain severe diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis and tuberculosis. This legislation prevents advertising honey as a cure for arthritis but it will not pervent over-the-counter advice or testimonials quoted in popular but questionable paperbacks and magazines. Use reliable sources of information. No one but YOU can question the truth of such testimonials.
