Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta
Thursday, February 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: You fre- quently advise people who are drastically overweight to try Weight Watchers or Tops. If they fail there, you tell them they are stuffing themselves as compensation for other pleasures they are not getting. Then you say, "Seek professional help." Well, I took your advice and sought professional help. The psychiatrist spent five sessions telling me why I over-ate. (I already knew why and I didn't relish spending that kind of money to hear it from Then I met his wife. She weighed more than I did I never went back. The second psychiatrist was recommended by my obstetrician. When I met him I couldn't believe my eyes He was about 5'5" and weighed at least 300 ibs. He had the fattest hands I ever saw and ate jelly beans all through the session I didn't even want to discuss weight with him I said I was a lesbian and would call him for another appointment if I decided to continue Of course I never did. How can a psychiatrist expect his patients to have faith in him when he can't help his own wife or himself Teed Off Dear Teed: Don't try to evaluate the competence of a psychiatrist by sizing up his wife (or his children) or even the man himself. The only thing that matters is how YOU get along with him. Of course, if you are turned off at the outset your chances of establishing a good relationship are poor, no matter what the reason. So, my advice to you is to look up a skinny therapist with an THE BETTER HALF emaciated wife and good luck to you. Dear Ann Landers: I am a bank employee who would like to comment on "S.C.'s Secret Bank Account." You suggested that the wife who discovered the "strange" deposit slip in her husband's wallet should hand it to him and say, "How nice that you wanted to surprise me with a little nest egg." I don't agree. I know several people who have secret bank accounts. The reasons are often legitimate. Sometimes the husband (or wife) is a compulsive spender, or an alcoholic. The stable member of the family may feel the need to squirrel away money for emergencies. If a husband or wife wants a secret bank account, he will have one In the case of the woman who wrote, her husband, upon being discovered, would probably open another bank account elsewhere under a fictitious name If he should die suddenly, the account would be turned over to the government and the wife wouldn't even know about it. Every bank has untraceable dormant accounts because some customers wanted to keep their banking affairs a secret. I feel sorry for their families. Toronto M.P. Dear Toronto: I bow to your experience and superior judgment. From now on, girls, if you find a deposil slip for a "secret bank jot down the name of the bank and keep your trap shut.

The couple were married in Del Bonita where they homesteaded in the early days. Mr. Clifton is a native of Idaho, while his wife, Ruby, arrived in Canada from London, England. They have four children, Verda Johnsen of Calgary, George of Coalhurst, Pearl Bagley of Picture Butte and Elmer, also of Coalhurst. There are four grandchildren. Master of ceremonies at the reception was Wayne Greer, nephew of Mrs. Clifton. Cardin collection features fashions for junior group PARIS (AP) Designer Pierre Cardin's collection includes flower-print skirts with midriff T-shirts and peasant-type skirts with two-color bras. Cardin, who later came out for a bow in a dapper bow tie and sweater vest, showed a 200-dress collection. For the first time, Cardin has whipped up a "junior" group. No dress could look more like it was for the ready-to-wear teen set than Cardin's. His flower-print skirts are made of tiers of cotton ruffles. They come with the midriff Tshirts, except for the bushy ankle Dirndls which have the two-color bras. Fortunately, most of the clothes are designed for women over 16. Fitting in with the man-tailored trend of this season, Cardin makes 1940-ish glen plaid and pin-striped suits and three-quarter coats over straight skirts. Another theme is a big batwing jacket gathered into a su- perlow, dropped waistband. Underneath the enormous top in prison stripes, cubist prints or silk tie-prints goes a hobble skirt two inches below the knee. Some skirts are gathered into hem bands as well. Be careful not to push your knee through. Cardin's offering in new hats is a straw pillbox that almost touches the nose. His makeup for spring is a greasy yellow sheen which covers the whole face the kind of face you wear to bed with curlers. As usual, evening dresses at this house are the sense that they make you wonder how in the world you get into them. By JEAN SHARP Canadian Press Staff Writer Food costs continued to rise in February, led by the price of sugar. The price of raw sugar rose to for a 100-pound bag from in January and last summer. The increase is reflected in the increased costs of many items including table sugar, bread, candy, ice cream and canned fruits. A four-cent increase in the cost of bread has been predicted for early March by the Bakery Council of Canada which bfamed rising costs of fuel, packaging, sugar and milk The Food Prices Review Board said an increase of two cents would be justified. A further increase in milk prices also is predicted for the end of March, when the annual dairy policy is announced. Federal Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan has said government subsidies on dairy products now total million a year and cannot go higher.
