Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Here's the situation and it's a mess. A IB-year-old boy ran away from home five months ago. He was gone for three months and made no effort to communicate with his parents. They nearly went out of their minds. When he returned he acted as if he had done nothing wrong. He couldn't understand why they were so upset. While he was away he had lived in a commune with a bunch of hippie dropouts. The boy has settled down somewhat since his return. He's in school now and doing fairly well. He takes an occasional trip to Chicago and returns bedraggled and disoriented. He says he is in love with a 26-year-old divorced alcoholic and he must make these trips to see her He claims he is helping her "get her head together." Recently his parents laid down the law. No more trips ? DEAR ANN LANDERS: My closest friend is fighting a divorce. I know from experience the only winners in cases like these are the lawyers. How I wish when I was in her spot that someone had given me some practical advice. I listened to my relatives instead. They kept saying, "Hang on. Don't let the dirty rat go." All they were interested in was seeing to it that the guy was "punished properly." The way the laws are changing it won't be long before anyone who wants a divorce will be able to get it which I believe makes sense. In California all an unhappily .married person need say is, "There are irreconcilable differences." How much better this is than the old law that granted a divorce for one reason only - adultery. That law made liars out of thousands of people because it was the only way they could get out of a miserable marriage. Nothing is so self-defeating or so degrading as hanging on to a man who doesn't want you. No marriage is worth a damn unless both people value it and will work at it. By the time the judge gets into the act. it's beyond lo the city. He wants to make this deal: He will give up his buddies, remain in school and gel a part-time job. But he.refuses to give up the girl. What are the parents' legal responsibilities? The boy insists the law says they must support him until he is 18. Is this true? Are parents obligated by law to support a kid who is defiant and refuses to do as they say? Advise, please. -A Friend DEAR FRIEND: A 16-year-old boy who takes up with an alcoholic girl 10 years his senior is in need of psychiatric counselling. This is what the parents should be thinking about rather than how legally to escape supporting their son. Since you did ask the question, however, I will answer it. Yes, there are some legal steps the parents can take, but I don't give that kind, of advice. They should see a lawyer. ? * saving. And so is your face, dear lady, so let the man go, maintain your dignity and make a new life for yourself. I did and I'm content for the first time in years. -My Head Is High In Denver DEAR HEAD: Circumstances alter cases and no two are exactly the same. Generally speaking, I am inclined to agree with you. If a marriage is dead, you might as well bury it. Monday, February 26, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 13 No licence needed to become parent EDMONTON (CP) - Obtaining a driver's licence entails a fairly stiff test but an American educationist said here that becoming a parent, one of the most, demanding roles in modern society, only needs "clean blood and a couple of bucks for the marriage licence." Dr. Frederick Humphrey of the University of Connecticut was addressing the annual convention of the Greater Edmonton Teachers' Association. He said the situation can be corrected only through proper Doctors doubted Flower Girl Guide Sherry Ruston, eleven, member of the Third lethbridge Company, presents Mrs. Julie Wright with a rose.

Send yours to This paper j Cowboy hat all-purpose tool DEL RIO, Texas - "Down in this country," drawled John Stockton, "you'd just as soon do without boots as not wear a hat. Why, a hat is a bare necessity." He is, of course, right. Hereabouts, a western hat - better known in the east perhaps as a cowboy hat - sits perched up on just about every head big enough to wear one. And a few that aren't. For much of western history, the cowboy hat has been an all-purpose tool. Its wide brim made just about the only shade The Homemaker By MARILYN C.

Emulsifiers aid in the dispersion of one liquid in another, like oil in vinegar in salad dressings. Thickeners provide added body to cheese spreads and gravies. To preserve - The oldest methods of preserving foods are smoking, pickling, salting and sun drying. We still use these methods today besides using other chemical preserving additives: - to control the growth of yeast, bacteria and mold in cereals, baked goods and dairy products: - to prevent the rancidity of fats; - to increase shelf life, enabling our foods to hold their flavor and quality during periods of transportation and storage. Is the use of additives controlled? The Health Protection decides: (a) what additives can be used; (b) where - in what foods; (c) why - for what purpose; and (d) how - in what amount. Although one gallon of a substance may be dangerous, two drops may not be harmful. Limiting the quantity of additives is one way to ensure their safe use. Government scientists decide if an additive will be permitted to be used and in what quantities only after careful study of the results of many tests to determine any potential harm. If evidence indicates an additive might be harmful, a manufacturer will not be permitted to use it.

A sturdy, dependable hat was, in effect, a portable tree that protected the cowhand's neck and head from the rain, the sleet and from the sun that almost daily bakes much of the southwest and, in the summer, the plains to the north. At times the western hat made a good bucket, an uncommon wallet or an out-of-the-way place to stash an extra pistol. Tipped over the eyes, It. created a tiny pocket of darkness for a midday snooze and kept bugs off the face. Or, waved vigorously in the air, it could startle ponderous cattle herds info a long drive to the railhead. Over the years, in fact, the cowboy hat has become as much a part of the western tradition as the horse. Even today an experienced eye, squinting out from tinder a wide brim, can tell much about a man or woman by the western hat on their head -- its style, color, TORONTO (CP) - A Toronto j medical professor says he is: doubtful about the ability of I doctors to examine female j breasts for possible tumors. j Dr. Robert Morgan, chairman ! of the preventive medicine department at the University of j Toronto, told public health doc-j tors and nurses here that he j doubled the physicians' ability because the more breasts they examine, the more doubtful they become. However, he said his main concern was that high-risk women are not being examined for possible cancer of the cervix These include those who start sex relations early or have many partners. He said these people are rarely examined at venereal disease centres where they go for treatment. family life education programs in schools. Dr. Humphrey, an associate professor of family relations on the campus at Stars. Conn., said society has depended tno long on "amateur parents." Premarital sexual advice and lessons in family relationships were treated as taboo. As a result, young peopla would become parents with Jit' tie or no knowledge of what was involved. Too often they came from backgrounds not conducive to good family relationships and this produced disturbed and often brutalized children. He said it has been argued that agencies outside school can teach about sex and family life but said these places either are doing an inadequate job or are not reaching the people that need the instruction. A good example was the church which still has a "male chauvinst, sexist" attitude toward sex. crease, angle, degree of dirtiness and how it is doffed. In recent years, however, the traditional western hat has also taken on some aspects of fashion: its height, crease and width change with the seasons like suit lapels. And now at. this time of annual western hat model change-overs, there are growing signs, too, that the cowboy hat once worn by no self-respecting city dude past the age of nine, is becoming increasingly popular among adults throughout the country and overseas. "There's no doubt about it," said one smiling Texas hat manufacturer, "the east is going western." Whatever the reasons, Manhattan stores, among others, report growing sales of western hats. Harvey Kane, owner and president of Worth and Worth, said he sells more western hats there than many stores in the west. In the last three years, he said, his western hat sales have increased 10 per cent annually. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes TAKE A GENTLE LAXATIVE From the makers of TUMS* Take gentle-acting r* ...
