Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 4, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD SXurdiy, January 4, 1875 Lynne Van Luven Women's resolutions for 1975 'Turning over new leaP obsolete Like it or lump it Not so very long ago, winter came to the Land of Nod. Snow fell upon all the cities, hamlets, towns and farms throughout trie land. The feathery white stuff fell in moderate amounts, but in- discriminately it fell upon the town of Nonsuch, located in the southwestern section of Nod. In addition to the snow, Nonsuch was blessed with vigorous winds, which shaped, carved and sculpted the snow into curley-cues, banks and drifts of rock-like consistency. The day after the storm, Nonsuchians shovelled and hacked and wheezed and struggled to clean their driveways and sidewalks. Eventually, they ventured forth, on foot, in their cars and on public transportation. But they were met by an awesome spectacle snowbacks and ruts of Himalayan proportions on all the major thoroughfares. Snug in their homes, the nature-loving Nonsuch maintenance crews had not wanted to disturb the pristine beau- ty of the winter wonderland with their ugly tractors and snow ploughs. So they sat back and waited for a Nonsuchian wonder the balmy westerly winds which would blow upon the town and melt all the snow and ice. Small children, merely wishing to cross the street, were stranded at midpoint, overcome with terror and acrophobia as they gazed down to the pavement, far below the pinnacle of the rut upon which they were stranded. People began to travel on buses with brown paper bags clutched queasily to their bosoms the rocking motion as the vehicle lurched over snow banks and lumps tended to produce severe motion sickness. Effie Goodthorpe launched a suit against the city fathers, claiming that crashing over ruts in her 1929 Ford had dislocated seven of her vertebra. No telling, she added, what it had done to Henry, her car. Finally, the town elders issued an edict outlining magnanimous new proposals for snow removal: any treacherous embankment or intersection within the city would be ploughed upon request if more than 743 complaints about the same location were received in the space of 40 minutes. In addition, city maintenance crews announced a revolutionary discovery to aid snow removal. Sinclair Slush, commander of the snow bridgade, made the announcement: 77 days remained until spring and the ice would be melted before citizens could even say 'incompetent'. By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Department Modern women appear to put very little stock in the time-honored tradition of heralding the new year with optimistic resolutions. In fact, most of them seem to regard the custom of turn- ing over a new leaf as downright obsolete. In a random telephone sur- vey light-hearted rather than scientific in nature of more than a dozen local women, the absence of firm resolve and lantern-jawed determination was horrifying: Can it be that Southern Alberta women are not made of firmer stuff after all? That they lack the insight to recognize a fault and the gumption to do something about it? Perish the thought and in 1975, International Women's Year at that. Or could it be, as one recalcitrant resolver blithely explained, that the average Lethbridge woman is a tower of virtue and strength, any change in which would be just so much gilding of the lily? The answer probably lies somewhere in between both extremes. Most people inter- viewed had a realistic attitude to the new-year's resolution quandry "why make 'em, if you'll just break 'em" was the prevailing point of view of veteran resolution-makers, who were obviously tired of not living up to their own ex- pectations. "I never keep resolutions, so I gave up trying years confessed Barbara Lacey, a city physician and leader for improved day care services. "ilaven't made said Marg Koep, mother of five and determined arts and science student at the Univer- sity of Lethbridge. "Right now I'm just trying to decide what courses to take that's a big enough decision." Similar sentiments were echoed by Judy Simon and Fairy Marshall, secretaries at the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission and the Universi- ty of Lethbridge, respectively. "I'm so tired of making resolutions that don't turn out- said Ms. Simon. "They'd just get agreed Ms. Marshall. "I always make them, but they spoil the New Year for admitted Eudena Luther of Coaldale, observation nursery assistant. "So this year I just didn't Nor did Pauline Hoskin, director of the Birth Control and Infor- mation Centre. "My new year will start after the Winter Games are sighed Wilma Winter, co-ordinator of Athletics, at the U of L. Until then I won't have time to start my jogging in earnest." Physical fitness was on several women's minds: -The Herald- Family Ann Landers Janice Cain, a Grade One teacher at George McKillop School and self-avowed sloth, is determined to take a fitness course and whip herself into shape for '75. And then there were the handful of women who did make resolutions. "I plan to close niy cup- board laughed Nat Kozufa, a mother of two pre- schoolers. "That's my messiest habit. "And I want to get into better shape, both health and fitness-wise. And spend more time with my children, doing creative things." "I hope to quit says Norah Hawn, a dedicated community worker, "Maybe if I see it in print, I'll have the courage to stick with it. "And I want to do more with Meals on Wheels, working to im- prove the service." Cathy Thrall, a mother of four, had one practical resolu- tion to clean her kitchen desk drawers, which she did promptly Jan. 1 and several more idealistic plans: to relax and enjoy life be helpful to try and under- stand how other people feel. Isobel Isaacson, a human and civil liberties field worker and mother of three, is ex- tremely serious about her 1975 resolution: "I'm determined to use common sense more and emotionalism less, in order to be of more value to both others and myself." Janice Holland, poet and mother of three is resolved to learn as much as she can about rape, human rights, and divorce laws, in order to help others as a resource person. Jessica Tichenor, a mother of three has an arm's-length list of resolutions which include taking herself and the children for a walk around the block every day, avoiding dou- ble standards, avoiding waste by resisting commercialism, standing up for her rights as a female, and trying to be a prompt morning-riser. she asked, after reciting her list, "You're not going to phone us back next year to check how we did, are Now there's an idea! Dear Ann Landers: This is a four-generation problem. I hope you are up to it. My dear mother is 83 years old. She is still alert mentally but let's face it, she should not be expected to chase after four active kids, ranging in age from three to 11. Grandma had surgery four years ago and is not very steady on her feet. I have explained all this to my daughter-in-law, but it goes in one ear and out the other. She still puts pressure on Grandma to come over and take care of the children when she must work odd hours on her part-time job. In addition to her own four kids there's another three- year-old over there whose mother pays my daughter-in- law to keep him from eight till five. I'm sure this child's mother doesn't know her youngster is often being cared for by ari 83-year-old lady. Your opinion is wanted. Slow Boil Dear Boil: I think your son should step in (not you) and tell his wife she is taking ad- vantage of the dear old doll. In the meantime, I've said it before, but I'll say it again. It takes two to create a situation such as this one an incon- siderate dame who would ex- ploit an older person and a ncbbish who would allow herself to be used so badly. Dear Ann Landers: Our new little daughter-in-law is precious. She and our son are EXPERIENCED HAIRDRESSER required by one of the most modern beauty shops in Western Canada.

Community calendar NEW YORK (AP) Some aspect of the life-style of small families may play a role in the cause of Hodgkin's dis- ease, it is suggested in a study by the Harvard School of Public Health and the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

''We're the first to speculate on Dr. Philip Cole, associate professor of epidemoiology at Harvard, said Thursday. "But we really have no idea as to the reason." The study, reported in the latest New England Journal of Medicine, began as an investi- gation into a reported link be- tween tonsillectomy and Hod- gkin's disease, a cancer of the lymph system, an association suggested by researchers at the New York state health department. The newest study concluded that if there is an association it is not one of cause and effect, or if causal, "quite complex and modified by fac- tors related to family size." FM.

My husband and I enjoy them very much and they seem to enjoy us. The problem is that I have a strong desire to correct her on several breaches of etiquette. The thing that bothers me most is the way she uses butter. Instead of putting some on her own plate, she takes the master butter knife and smears an entire ear of corn (or a large piece of French bread) straight from the butter dish intended for all. Not only is this most un- appetizing to watch, but it takes a long time because she puts butter on almost everything peas, carrots, green beans, rolls even steak. How can I correct her gently, so as not to hurt her feelings? Concerned M. I. L. Dear M.: No way. Tell your son and let HIM correct her "gently." No matter how "precious" she is, any attempt to improve your daughter-in-law's table manners will put a crimp in your relationship if not out- wardly, inwardly. Dear Ann Landers: I know how you feel about people who don't write thank-you notes and I am in full agreement, but please say something about not jumping to con- clusions until the "quality" person has had an opportunity to speak in his or her own behalf. For example, at the funeral of a neighbor I noticed an es- pecially beautiful funeral wreath. I asked who had sent it. The sister of the deceased said sadly, "We don't know. There was no card. Two calls 'to the florist proved fruitless." When our daughter was married we received two gifts with NO cards. The sender of one was identified by the store. The other was NEVER identified because it was brought to the church. So please, Ann, ask people to telephone and ask if their gift was received if they don't get an acknowledgment after a reasonable period of time.
