Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 2, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 2, 1975 THE LETHttHiDGt: HERALD 21 Saturation technique cures heavy smokers VANCOUVER (CP) The University of British Colum- bia saturation smoking clinic is saturated with smokers. Prof. Allan Best, a psy- chologist at UBC, announced recently that a government- supported quit-smoking clinic, which had been run on a pilot basis since September, would open its doors in mid January. Lois Groves, co-ordinatorof the clinic, said more than 200 applicants called within a week. Mr. Best said smokers will be made to smoke so much they won't be able to face the thought of another cigarette. The aversion technique is virtually 100-per-cent effec- tive in getting people to give up cigarettes, he said. The hard part is staying off. "The therapy just takes care of the craving. For most people, smoking for the nico- tine is only part of it." For many, smoking relieves tension or boredome, is a re- ward for working hard or a social lubricant. Mr. Best said most people find that when they quit smok- ing it leaves a void in their world. The clinic would try to find alternatives to fill that void. He said people smoking to relieve tension can be taught relaxation exercises while those who get bored could sub- stitute a walk or read a novel. Those who can't refuse a cigarette offered them should prepare a polite or witty turn- down. Mr. Best explained two of the saturation techniques. In one, smokers increase cigarette consumption to about five times their normal level for about three days be- fore quitting. In another, they chain-smoke as many ciga- rettes as possible, with only a few getting to about 10, and repeat the process after inter- vals of a few minutes.

Congratulations to the Ulricksons. Dear Ann Landers: Every day I fight my husband for the part of the paper that runs your column. We just can't wait to see what the bigoted old bat has to say about marriage, money, drugs, child-rearing, medical problems, legal hassles, cats, dogs and, of course, sex. Ob- viously, you consider yourself an authority on everything. Usually we sit back and snicker. Once in a while my husband will say, "Old Annie is at it again, giving her 18th- century views. It must be wonderful to be so smart." On occasion I get upset by some of your squirrely advice but never was I mad enough to write until you came up with that line, "Tell Ed that Ann Landers said to cool it. He'll understand." Do you really think Ed gives a hoot in hell what Ann Landers says? You've got yourself lined up there with Confucious and Buddha. This letter is to let you know we think you are obnoxious. Nuts To You Dear Nuts: People who fight every day for the part of the paper that carries my column are genuine fans. Thanks for letting me know. Dear Ann Landers: Can you possibly squeeze in one more letter on the Mrs. John Smith free-for-all? I don't give a hangnail what the etiquette books say about the proper labelling of a woman. I am Mrs. Ann Jones, happily married to John Jones and I want to be called Mrs. Ann Jones. When John starts calling himself Mr. Ann Jones then I'll settle for Mrs. John Jones. I'm active in club work and can't tell you the number of times I've needed to know a woman's first name and found myself stumped with Mrs. Joe Schmo. Who needs HIM? It's her I'm looking for. By way of identity, I'm 36, the mother of four, a lousy housekeeper and not terribly concerned with women's lib. I just want to be me. Let me, will you? Mrs. Ann Jones Dear Ann: Be my guest. Dear Ann Landers: My mother is going to a funeral tomorrow (a person she used to work with died) anri my 11- year-old brother is bugging her. He wants to go, too. Chuck did not know the deceased but he is very curious about what goes on at funerals because he has never been to one. You stated in a column several months ago that if a child wants to attend the funeral of a relative he should not be denied his wish. You also said if he DOESN'T want to go, he should not be forced to. Should my mother take Chuck just to satisfy his curiosity? AN. Y. Q. Dear N.Y.: It would be un- fair to the family to bring a child to a funeral just because he wants to see what's going on. A funeral is not enter- tainment. Sooner or later a relative will pass on and then Chuck can go with good reason. Dear Ann Landers: Your advice wasn't tough enough for the girl who sent for something to enlarge her bust and received a plastic male hand. She should have written to the magazine that carried the ad, "informed the Better Business Bureau, called the attorney general of her state and the state where the com- pany is located, written the Postal authorities, notified the Federal Trade Commis- sion and written to the Bureau of Consumer Affairs. She would not only have gotten her back, but put the crooks out of business. Informed Reader Dear I. R.: Thanks. I hope others who get duped will take your advice. Do you feel awkward, self- conscious lonely? Welcome to the club. There's help for you in Ann Lander's booklet, "The Jicy to Popularity." Send 50 cents in coin with your request and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope to Ann Landers, P.O.

Opposition was so strong, she says, that she considered saying "to hell with it" and walking away. But after talking with her husband, Bill, she decided to stay and fight. Hours later she was Hev. Ann Bartram. At ordination, she was sure she would be a parish minis- rninisteries were not the vogue at the said in a recent interview. The church sent her to Elk Lake, Ont., about 30 miles south of Kirkland Lake. She had three communities to look after, 108 miles apart on rough logging roads. Mrs. Bartram described them as a mining town, lumber town and ghost town. The church manse, she says, was "a large building covered with tar-paper, full of holes and a front door hanging from a broken hinge." There was no bed, no stove, no refrigerator. The couple had a baby there and Mrs. Bartram blames lack of medical help for .its death at three months. They later had a daughter who now is six. The 18 months up north were practically the extent of Mrs. Bartram's role as a parish minister. Since then, she and her husband have made several moves. Mrs. Bartram became associated with the Toronto Institute of Human Relations, a church related organization to train counsellors. She trained for two years, then left to set up her own prac- tice. Her husband is working as a lay minister and Mrs. Bartram works about 20 hours a week counselling persons of all ages on a variety of problems associated with modern living.
