Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Her Excellency to the rescue: IODE helps premature babies OTTAWA (CP) One night about a year ago, a prema- ture baby was brought to the nursing station at Watson Lake in the Yukon. In then populated areas to the south, it would have Irecn put in an incubator. But none was available in the isolated station and (lie infant had to be fed oxygen through a fine tulre through its nose and kept warm with hot water Irottlcs before it could be flown south. The situation was not new. The need for more incuba- tors for nursing stations in isolated northern communities had become apparent m re- cent years through a study of infant deallis occurring 23 days of life. Statistics show that first and fifth babies are the ones most usually prema- ture. But the situation was differ- ent to this extent; The baby was seen by an important vis- itor, Mrs. Roland Miclicncr, wife of the Governor-General. Her Excellency soon found fl way to express her concern. In November, 1970, she wrote the national president of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire about the inci- dent. Mrs. Michener, honorary president of the older, sug- gested Uiat should any chap- ters be interested in providing incubators, medical equip- ment or supplies for northern nursing slalions, she would be happy to hrar of it. "The need in the North is very she wrote. "Most of the medical stations are manned only by nurses and there are few doctors." The organization, one of whose aims is to provide serv- ice and welfare for those in need, promptly took up the idea. There were incubators at that time in several north- ern nursing stations and the federal and territorial medi- cal services were trying to supply more. But the IODE realized that i-' incubators could be prov- ided as soon as possible to all nursing stations requiring them, government funds would be released for other necessary medical equipment. It was assumed the plan would take two years. But the voluntary organization, draw- ing on its chapters from coast to coast, had 16 incubators on their way for delivery within three months. Incubators costing ?400 each wore sent to such places as Old Crow, Haines Junction' Gjoa Haven and Fort Resolu- tion. At Lake Harbour, G-rise Fiord and Belcher Island, N.W.T., the new incubators accompanied units for travel- Hug nursing stations which follow nomadic or migrating Eskimo communities. A special incubator costing was sent to the Fort Rac, N.W.T., clinic for use in transporting babies to hospi tal. The IODE, which hopes to put more incubators where needed in the North, found the project spawned other work. Now it is providing five r djo-stereos to Yukon nursing stations to facilitate communi- cation between patients and their families and help relieve the loneliness of Eskimo and Indian patients. By June, 225 layettes will be snipped to hospitals in Inuvik, Frobisher Bay and Churchill. n d a Mr. and Mrs. Hurshel Shipley of Glenwood are pleased to an nounce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Mereda Gay, to Mr John Innis, son of Mr. and Mrs G.

The need to search for new markets has been stressed by the minister for foreign com- merce, Mano Xagari. "No country today can be re- garded as an open he observed. Even though the United Slates has abolished its import surtax, Zagari said, it is time to find customers and promote Italian couture in East European countries. "Yes, American buyers are says Sidney Gittlcr from Ohrbnch's, a New York store. One reason is that Italian fashions, previously cheaper than Paris ones and as such fairly attractive, have near- ed the same price range. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm so ashamed of my problc: I can't talk to anybody about it. My husband and I are both 31. We have had our disagreements but nothing serious The basis of the trouble is his drinking. He doesn't get drunk very often but when he does he is like out of his head. Last Saturday niglit we went (o a party. There waa a lot Of liquor around and Cliff got awfully drunk. Wo got horn about 3'00 a.m. Ho was in no condition to drive and coulc not have opened the front door wilh his key if his life de pended on it. The sitter was asleep on the coueh. She hat arranged to stay all night because we knew we would be get- ting home very late. Cliff passed out on the bathroom floor and I decided tc leave him there and let liim sleep it off. (He weighs over 20C pounds and I couldn't have gotten him in bed if I had wanted to.) At about a.m. I was awakened by what Bounded like an argument. I went into the living room and found my husband trying to kiss the sitter. She was half hysterical and he was still very drunk. Ann, the girl is only 13. I helped her dress and I drove her home. By noon Cliff had sobered up. He Is beside himself will shame and grief. He has never done anything like this before I am worried sick that he might be mentally ill. Now I wonder if our own daughters are safe with him. They are 8 and 11 Please tell me what to do and sign me and Pins No Other Identification DEAR FRIEND: I hope your husband Is sufficiently grieved and ashamed to get professional help. If liquor has such a devasting affect on him, he should not have so much as a teaspoon. If Cliff doesn't believe you, please show him this column and let's hope it persuades him to get going. DEAE ANN LANDER: I've enjoyed your column for many years in the Lubbock Avalanche and was surprised a.! your recent advice ivhidi makes you out a female chauvinist When a teen-age girl wrote to say she was terrified of be- coming old and wrinkled and asked how to keep her skin youthful, you replied: "The texture and durability of a woman's skin is primarily a matter of inheritance. If your mother had a wrinkle-free skin, your sldn has a better chance of holding up." Obviously you blocked from your mind the genetic com- position of every human, which includes male as well as female genes. In my case. I inherited my father's skin. In a subse- quent column, will you please acknowledge the fact that men count? Thank you. LongTram DEAR TEX: Men count. (Some can go as high as Thank you for catching the error. Some girls do inherit (heir father's skins and not tlieir mothers'. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I like this guy very much. I'll call him Brad. When ive go to the movies he just sits there like a lump on a log. I don't care for boys who try to put the make on a girl after one date, but Brad and I have been out together at least eight times. 1 think it's about time lie put his arm around me in the movie. Do you think it v-ould be out of place if I took his arm nnd draped it over my shoulders, as a hint? Please give me some advice bcenura I don't want him to think I am pushy. Thanks. In Bakci-field DEAR BAKE: Hand-holding Is more discreet. Tell Brad your hand is heavy and ask him if he'd mind holding it awhile. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Several years ago you printed a letter from a man who complained because his wife undressed in the closet. He said it had been going on for 15 years and he was sick of it. I have been undressing In tile closet for longer than that and it has taken me until now to understand the reason well enough to put it down on paper. What opened my eyes was an article I read recently about nudisfe. It said they think nothing of nakedness because they become accustomed to it. No one turns his head to look after the first day or two. It stands to reason that anything on display constantly loses is mystique. I'm glad I read that article. Now I know Uie answer. What do you think Ann? In Steubcnville DEAR li.T.S.: I think you are kidding yourself. From the tone of your letter your relationship with your husband is in no danger of over-exposure.
