Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Back from the jungles Writer-photographer Wyn Sargent, on the arm of her 17-year-old son Jym, as she arrives at the Los Angeles International airport from Hong Kong. She was expelled from Indonesia after marrying a tribal chief in the jungles of West Irian. The 42 year-old divorcee is from Huntington Beach, Calif. Mechanics accused of rip-off Ann Landers TORONTO (CP) - Fifteen Toronto women, tired of being "rooked" by auto mechanics, are taking an auto mechanics course at night school to learn SEE THE LENS THAT DARKENS IN THE SUNLIGHT (VARIGRAY) the ins and outs of fixing their own cars. "I'm here because I got tired of mechanics who try to rip off girls when they think they don't know anything," said Sally Kir-ton, a 24-year-old fashion buyer for a department store. "I know -I've been rooked twice." Eva Kalliomake, a 34-year-old widowed mother of two, is taking the course each Thursday night at Parkway vocational school because "I have an old car and I can't afford to pay for a lot of repairs." She said some mechanics overcharge women or fix things that don't need to be fixed. "But now I can tell them exactly what's wrong," she said. The women are "some of my best students," said instructor John Sullivan who runs the course from September to May. The fee is $15. Kathy Lee, a head operating-room nurse at Toronto General Hospital, bought a 1972 car last year "but I didn't know what to do with it," she said. "I just want to have a general knowledge so that I can tell what's wrong, and I can tell whether a mechanic's trying to take advantage of me." DEAR ANN LANDERS: If that fellow who signed himself "Polecat Pathos" lives where I do and calls the SPCA, the sheriff or the police department and asks for help in getting a skunk out from under his porch, he will be told, as I was, "That's your problem, Buddy." It was a friendly neighbor who finally gave me the advice I needed. I was told to put a dozen mothballs under the porch, about six inches DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is a protest. Please change your advice. I refer to the answer you gave the wife whose husband won the All - City Singles bowling championship - a $1,000 purse. In the past his team had had an understanding that all prizes would be divided equally among the members. The wife felt he was under no obligation to divide his prize money, that it' he took his teammates and their wives out for dinner and an evening of fun, it would be a nice treat and they should be satisfied. His teammates protested. You said, DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter is married to a nice young man. They both have busy careers and do not care to bring children into what they call "this crazy-mixed-up world." My husband and I, of course, are sad that we will never be grandparents. (She is our only child). But we have never said a word about our disappointment. What I am writing about is: For the past four years they have left their two large dogs with us for two weeks while they went on a winter vacation. Their housekeeper takes her vacation at the same time and they say their dogs become depressed in the kennel and do not eat well.

Sure enough, the skunk left quietly and quickly and he did not return. Please print this for rea'ders who may be plagued with the problem.-Common Scents In Sunny Cal DEAR SUNNY: As a Cliff-dweller in the heart of town, I can't even imagine the problem, but my country cousins assure me it's no joke, so thanks for the useful advice in their behalf. "A deal is a deal, and if the team wants to change the deal for future wins, OK- but he is honor bound this time." Shame on you for siding with those greedy grubbers. His winning had nothing to do with his team. They contributed nothing. Reverse the verdict, Ann.-Corning Com-plaina DEAR CORN: Dozens of people wrote to say I was wrong. Some even mentioned the entry fee which he paid out of his own pocket - but the advice stands. I concede the rules should be rewritten, and the time to do it is now -but a deal is still a deal. want the dogs again and told them so. Our daughter says we are selfish, that she has never heard of parents like us, and she closed her little speech with, "What are parents for?" Now I feel guilty although I know I should not. Please say something.-Albuquerque Problem DEAR AL: If your daughter honestly believes parents a r e to leave dogs with, it's just as well that she and her husband don't have any children. Don't collapse to her selfish demands. If she doesn't want to put the dogs in a kennel, let her hire a sitter. Lessons for patients LONDON, Out, (CP) - People about to have operations attend a one-lesson night class at St. Joseph's Hospital. They see pictures of every-thing that happens to a surgical patient from admittance to discharge. They practise exercises they'll be expected to do after their operations, and they are encouraged to ask for help if they need it. The program is run by Sister Angela, a clinician who has run a similar program in Chatham, Ont She says it is helpful if patients know and understand, rather than just have things happen to them. For instance, if surgery patients "don't know beforehand that iheir abdomens are painted, all they expect is a little scar and they are amazed when they wake up all orange." She teaches the group with the help of two members of the hospital auxiliary.. "It has been proven that group teaching is more effective than individual teaching. By himself a patient can only go at his own rate. Sometimes, because of fear, he doesn't want much information, he just can't absorb it. But patients in a group support one another. Of course, they are all watched to see if they can handle a group situation." She said research has shown that people who have had the classes are less likely to vomit after surgery. The slides and accompanying sound track were made during two months at the hospital. The staff and auxiliary members have all seen the material. Auxiliary president Helen! Keenliside says the women who assist Sister Angela are screened. "A woman who is herself frightened by surgery could have a bad effect on patients." She says they are not encouraged to answer questions about operations. "They don't know enough, and in this case, it's more important to know what you don't know than what you do know. They must be able to react intuitively. If they have to be told bow to talk to a patient, we don't want them," ' Friday, February 23, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - F MONTH SPECIAL MEN'S WATCHES EACH SPECIAL MEN'S PANTS CLEARANCE SPECIAL MISSES' AND LADIES' DRESSES EACH SPECIAL MEN'S LONG SLEEVE POLYESTER EACH SPECIAL WOODY.
