Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Ann Celebrate 55th anniversary Southern Alberta oldtimers Mr. and Mrs. Harold Rutledge were married in the Wesley Church at Lethbridge Feb. 1, 1919, 55 years ago. They lived in the Albion Redge district for nine years and in 1928 moved to a Picture Butte area farm. They have 10 grandchildren and three great grandchildren and both are still active in the community. Three years past 100 Woman leads active life By MOLLY FRAMPTON St. Catharines Standard ST. CATHARINES, Ont. (CP) Although there are dark circles under her eyes now and her hearing has almost gone, Lilies Buchner hasn't really changed in the three years since she was 100 years old. She's still a sprightly, trim- figured old lady whose person and room at Unwell Hall are neat as a pin. She has always been a fastidious person and sees no reason to change just because she was 103 last month. She does her own hand-washing, keeps her room tidy and F.O.E.

"And when I can't get down to do her said her great- nephew's wife, Mrs. Vernon Buchner, "she washes and sets it herself with pin curls." Sunday is the senior Mrs. Buchner's favorite day "be- cause that's when I can sleep a she said. Sunday she takes a break from what has become almost a business with her in the last footstools from old tin cans. She looks on this as work, as she sells them to residents and their friends, and she doesn't believe in working on the Lord's Day. WORKED FOR TAILOR Mrs. Buchner worked for seven years for a tailor, she said, so sewing is no hardship to her. But since she has lived at Linwell Hall, residence of the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, for five years, she can no longer see what she's doing. One of the staff is kept busy threading needles for her, while she feels her way around the footstools, covering each can first, then padding the tops and covering the entire stool in brightly patterned fabric provided by her family. Mrs. Buchner's life hasn't Wedding Reports Marriage and Engagement Announcements The Lethbridge Herald All wedding reports, marriage and engagement announcements will now be published on a special page in The Herald's Saturday edtion each week.

WEDNESDAY OF THAT WEEK FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE Phona 328-4411 Family Editor been easy, she says, referring to a lifetime of looking after sick parents and her husband as "just work, work, work." Her favorite time was 20 or so years ago, when she lived near Cornwall and spent much time at her cottage on Sheik's Island. She says she's not had time in her life for fun and outings, but "lots of work and exercise keep up your spirits and keep you moving." This, she feels, is why she's lived so long. NOT OLD WOMAN She wouldn't want to be 110 years old though, because "there's no pleasure in being an old she stated emphatically. "If I didn't have these (footstools) to tinker about with there'd be nothing at all to do except she said. "And I don't want to sit here all day and just think and think of things that have hap- pened." She feels good most of the time and the staff at Linwell Hall and relatives look on her almost as a phenomenon as her health is so "fantastic." She regularly visits friends and relatives in nearby Thorold, taking pains to dress, complete with much-loved jewelry. But on those other days she confesses to feeling "lonesome a lot of the time." There are two things this amazing old lady would like to do before she decides she's had enough. "I want to go to she said. She has a niece there. "And I want to go back to Cornwall and see it all again." New doses of insulin foreseen HAMILTON (CP) By 1975 Canada will have replaced the current two strengths of insulin with a new standard that will prevent some of the dosage errors now being made by diabetics. Gordon Bowes of Connaught Laboratories, which produces all of Canada's insulin, said Thursday a new standard of 100 units of insulin per cubic centimetre will replace the 80- unit dosage by the end of this year and the 40-unit dosage by the end of next year. Current syringes will also have to be replaced, be said. ft'' Landers Dear Ann Landers: Will you please comment on the psychological aspects of a husband spanking his wife? I am 20 years old, married to a man who is 30. We've been married only two months and already we are in conflict over this matter. Please understand that I love and respect my husband. He was my first sex partner and I am ten years his junior. He regards me as "his little girl." I find it refreshing and enjoyable.compared with the problems other married couples are having. Last night we had an argument about my "disobeying" him. He turned me over his knee and gave me a hard spanking with a hairbrush. I hysterically told him it was the most humiliating experience of my entire life. He suddenly became very sweet and explained calmly that because I had lost my father at a tender age, I needed a strong, domineering father-figure and he is it. He also said spanking is a "personal, intimate and highly sexual form of bound to improve our marriage and heighten my respect for him. Am I headed for trouble? S. B. Dear S. B.: Headed for trouble? You've got trouble NOW. You are already married to the nut. A man who believes spanking a wife "heightens her respect for him" has a few loose bolts. If you buy this crock of cranberries, "little you deserve what you get. And don't be surprised if that "charming man'' breaks your jaw one day when he feels the need for a few extra jollies. Dear Ann Landers: Your neutral stance on astrology does your readers a grave disservice. What Ann Landers says is considered "The Word" by a tremendous audience. I am writing this letter because I believe members of the scientific establishment should make their thinking known. The charlatans swamp the public with whatever they wish to promote while scientists somehow feel it is beneath their dignity to acknowledge the existence of any hocus pocus If you had seen lives destroyed by the belief, in astrology, as I have, and if you knew as much about the subject as I do, you would share the belief of the scientific community that astrology is at best a religion, and not by any stretch of the imagination a science. H. K. E. V. W., Chairman, Department Of Astronomy, University of Southern Florida At Tampa Dear Chairman: Since your letter arrived I have done some research and I am no longer "neutral." Thanks for moving me over with the scientific community. Dear Ann Landers: I have been marned for eight weeks to an, attractive, intelligent, well-mannered man. He is also the biggest liar I have ever met. His lying, I'm afraid, is compulsive and pathological. Could therapy help him? When I hinted he needed it he flew into a rage. Last night I came right out and said, "You need counselling." He refused to speak for hours. I can't bear his anger and his stony silence. What should I do? I'm determined to make this marriage work. It's my second. Honeymoon Finite Dear Honey: Get some counselling for yourself and find out why you married "the biggest you ever met. Can he be helped? Judging from his reaction to your suggestion that he get counselling no. Receptivity is essential, and his is zero. Dear Ann Landers: Maybe you'll say I'm a cold-hearted witch, but I don't think you should have stood up for that woman who telephoned her 84- year-old mother from the of- fice three and four times a day. If that woman can call her mother, so can everyone else. They can also call their boy friends, girl friends, sisters, cousins, aunts, and whomever. When you have that many people making private phone calls they tie up the company's lines. It's not fair to the employer. The next time you call a place of business, Ann Landers, and can't get through because the lines are busy, remember that it might be the result of the advice you gave in your column. And it will serve you Spend A Dime During Lunch Hour Dear Dime: louche, dear, and muchas gracias. What's prudish? What's O.K.? If you aren't sure, you need some help.

It took over 11 pounds of cake to build the replica of the mcompleted foot tower. Justice sides with husband TORONTO (CP) An Ontario Supreme Court jus- tice has ruled that children of a second marriage should not take second place to those of the first marriage. Mr. Justice F. S. Weatherston made the ruling in a case involving a wife suing for more child support money. Both parties had remarried, and the father, Alex McKenna, 33, has been under a court order for the last five years to pay his first wife, Marilyn, who has custody of their eight-year-old daughter, a week Mr. McKenna earns a year but says he is in debt. His first wife earns a year as an elementary school teacher, lives in a house, and is married to G. W Jannett, an vice-principal. COST BURDENSOME When his wife sued for more money she asked for a week support Mr. McKenna replied that it would be financially burdensome and noted his ex-wife had been able to holiday in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Florida and Kentucky. Her lawyer argued that Mr. McKenna's first priority was to the child of the first marriage and he was not entitled to use the two children of the second marriage to reduce the amount he should pay for his first child. Mr. Justice Weatherston called it "intolerable" that children of a second marriage should take second place to those of the first marriage.
