Please set me straight on a few facts. My sister-in-law told us when arrived that we would have to share the children's bathroom because the bathroom con- nected with the sun porch where we were to sleep was not usable. No other explanation. After I unpacked I went into the adjoining bathroom to wash my hands. I almost died of fright. There was a five-foot alligator in the bathtub. I ran downstairs and asked my sister-in-law what that tiling was doing in there. She was very cool about it said (lie kids had been given an iguana by their uncle last year and it just grew. I asked what they planned to do with it and she said they'd probably give it to the zoo, as soon as they could talk the children into parting with it. She also said it was harmless and I was silly to be so upset. I didn't get much sleep that weekend, and I still shake when I think of it. Having a lizard in an adjoining room is not my idea of a restful weekend. Please tell me if some- thing that looks like a crocodile is harmless, and if an iguana can grow that big. (It must have weighed 39 pounds.) No one in Grand Rapids has ever seen one of those tilings. Cat DEAR CAT: Your sister-in-law gave you the straight goods iguanas can grow to be five feet long. I think it's criminal that animals are sold to the public as novelty "toys" for kids. Thousands of baby chicks and bunnies suffer the same sad fate at Easter time. Most people don't know what to do with the chickens and rabbits when they grow up. That poor iguana was not meant to flop around in a bathtub. I hope your sister-in-law takes him to a zoo soon. Please tell her I suggested it. Animals have rights, too. DEAR ANN LANDERS: After 23 years of marriage my husband and I were divorced. He wanted a new life. That was seven months ago. Last week I learned he is engaged to marry a girl young enough to be his daughter. I was not surprised because I knew he had been seeing some young girls. What bothers me is that they plan to be married in the same church, at the same altar where we were married. Our children were chris- tened in that church, attended Sunday school and were con- firmed there. We had our first date at the Youth Fellowship Dance in the social hall. Some of my relatives have made a formal protest to the pastor. (He is new to the community and rather 3'oung.) The pastor has indicated that he does not feel it would be appropri- ate for him to take sides, and that Ms duty is to perform the ceremony at the place selected by the bride and groom. Plcass understand that I am not attempting to prevent the marriage, Ann. I object only to having it take place in tho church that holds such meaningful memories for me. Do you feel the pastor is conducting himself in a Christian manner I do not believe lie is, nor does my family. broken Former Wife DEAR FORMER WIFE: Three distinguished Protestant clergymen support the new pastor. They say it is his respon- sibility to remain neutral and to perform his duties. Your former husband obviously feels warmly about his church but in a strange and sick way he has Mocked you out of his memory insofar as the church is concerned. This may be difficult to accept, but accept it you must. My own opinion is that Ire is grossly insensitive and inconsiderate but you must not condemn the paslor for your former husband's inadequacies.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Is it true you're tho black-sheep of a family of Tueiday, February 22, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 13 Film festival caters to all tastes Exer 'ens inches come off, pounds don' By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor About 200 women a day pass through the doors of the E.P.

"We're con- cerned mainly with inches, and exercise takes care of inches.'1 Mrs. Taylor explained that patrons lose no weight in th? initial stages of the program, because "muscles are huavior than but "when they lose inches, they are losing flab." Once the women have tight ened their muscles, she said "if they don't watch their food then they don't lose any msre They're at a standstill, or they lose (inches) very slowly."

An analysis follows this basic program, to discover what inches have been lost and to S03 where more work is needed. A different exercise program is worked out for each particu- lar problem, according to Mrs. Taylor. "Vie have a lot of members who have been sent by she said. "Our youngest mem- ber is nine. Our oldest is 82 and she does even-thing on her own." "We stress that if you are going to do this, you must be in the right frame of she added. "You must your food. You can't expect the ex- ercise to do it all." "We stress healthy eating ha- bits to go along irilh healthy exercise."
