Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ____. Thuridor, January I, 1971 THI HTHIIIDGI HUALD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I want to thank you for the rower you gave the man who was so critical of fat wives. We have recognized alcoholics as people with an illness and in our hearts feel sorry for them and their families but they are no more ill than many people with overweight prob- lems. I know! For seventeen years I was fat. I went on all sorts of fad diets. I'd lose five pounds and in a month I'd gain fifteen. I hated myself for the way I looked. Buying a dress was torture. I was sure my family didn't love me because I looked like a baby hippo. My love for them or wanting to be a decent size made no different. I ate in- cewantly. The more I disliked myself, the more I ate. Nasty remarks, the children's innocent barbs and the uncouth jokes made me eat more. Then one day I got nerve enough to join Tops. That was less than a year ago. Meeting with people who shared my problem gave me the strength to stick to a sensible diet. Today I am down to the weight set by my doctor and I've been there for six months. I love the way I look. My biggest thrill is when my husband calls me "Skinny." Thank God he loved me enough to stick around. No one wants to be fat! So the next time you see a fat person, remember this, please. Be compassionate-Former Fatty DEAR FORM: My hat is off to you. And now I'm sure you will want to share your solution with others. In Leth- bridge, Tops meets Mondays 'and Wednesdays at 7 p.m. in the nurses residence at St. Michael's Hospital. Weight Watch- ers meets Tuesday at 1 p.m. ajid p.m. at St. Augustine's Anglican Church, 11 St. and 4 Ave. S. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am very much in love with a young man who says he is also in love with me, but I think he has flipped his corn popper. He is so moody and unpredictable that it's scarey. One minute be can be sweet as honey, the next minute he is cold, unresponsive and sometimes cruel. H I ask him what's wrong he says, "Nothing, let me alone." When we have an argument I'm the one who has to apologize, even when he is wrong. I'm afraid if I don't I'D lose him. When we first met he told me he was an oddball and I'd be sorry if I became involved with him. Why didn't I listen? He gave me fair warning. What's the matter with him? Hooked DEAR HOOKED: You know what's the matter with him. He's unstable, unpredictable, end punitive. He could also be on drugs. Now, what's the matter with YOU? Why do you tolerate, maybe even enjoy, the punishment? People who re- main in situations that are frustrating and painful are them- selves oddballs. Get some counselling, honey.

Color., hotpants, pant-suits; fashion trends for nurses VANCOUVER (CP) Those angels nf mercy just aren't what they used to be. That doesn't mean today's nurses are not as well trained, sympathetic and merciful as they were in Florence Nightingale's day. But they don't look the same. Remember the stiff, starchy rustle that signalled a nurse's approach? .Remember thinking that if she sat down her uniform might crack? Remember on hot summer days how those uni- forms looked unbearably scratchy? Remember how all that white seemed just a little frightening when you paid your first visit to the dentist or doc- tor as a kid? Nurses have entered the drip- dry world and most of them couldn't be happier. They're cool, calm and, better still, the laundry bills have dipped to an all-time low. To small children, especially, they have become more real and less remote. It was a small step from syn- thetic traditional uniforms to nurses entering the fashion field with hotpants, zipped uniforms, pant-suits and colors other than white. Vancouver uniform manufac- turers Dubbel-Wear and Bow- man's report that the scene is changing with synthetics, al- though they still make tradi- tional hard-drill cottons as well. When you're making uniforms for several bartenders and miners among have to be versatile. Rose Uniforms, .Vancouver's only exclusive uniform bou- tique, is definitely putting fash- ion side-by-side with practical- ity. "Uniforms have been sadly lacking over the says Margaret Pye, who brings years of fashion experience to the bou- tique. With racks of colorful and un- usual uniforms she is doing her best to change the trends. She says pant-suits are well estab- lished and short jumpsuits and hotpants with dresses over the top are catching on. Occasionally, girls who have bought hotpants uniforms have had to return them because the doctor for whom they worked objected, In certain dentist's offices which use modern "bed" chairs in which the patient actually MARIE-LOUISE PRICE BALANCE Of STOCK OFF ENTIRE STOCK OF BERET and SCARF SETS ENTIRE STOCK WINTER GLOVES 25% off NOW 25% OFF MARIE-LOUISE MILLINERY 504 3rd AVE.

Many doctors agree that the new uniforms are great, but some still wonder what patients will think of a nurse in a hot pink pant-suit. It might come as quite a shock to dear old Florence, but today's nurses have come a long way.

It has been nearly 20 years since she taught in Fort McPherson, N.W.T., a settle- ment on Peel River then num- bering 500 Indians and 10 whites. Since then, her interest in native peoples has been well woven into her life'and helped keep her researching and writing about possible histori- cal links between them and Asians. Miss Stewart, 67, went to Fort McPherson as a teacher for (he Indian affairs depart- ment after completing an hon- ors arts course at Queen's University, Kingston, Ont., in She meant to stay one year but liked the Kutchin Indians so much she stayed four, dis- pensing welfare payments, acting as an assistant Indian agent and, when no nurse was available, filling in under the direction'of doctors from one of the larger centres.

"I think white people are terribly in- sensitive in their dealings with native people. "I feel that we should inves- tigate every possibility of re- turning to our native people their sense of pride and com- petence. "I think welfare is the ruin- ation of the native people as well as our own. It destroys their pride and initiative. "Nalive people should de- cide themselves on what work they want and the government should take care to see this relates to skills they already have." GIVEN STUDY GRANT Miss Stewart returned Iran New Zealand and took a mas- ter's degree at Queen's Uni- versity in 1955, concentrating on the history of the Pee) River country. Then she spent a few months in Aklavik and Hay River, N.W.T., before de- ciding to go to England. On her return, she went to work as a documents clerk for the New Zealand consulate in New York City, enjoying its1 cultural life and spending much free time in the library studying native history. The next year she received a Canada Council grant to continue her reseaiti for a year into the traditions and culture of the northern Indi- ans. Then she taught high school mathematics in Yellowknife, N.W.T., for two years before spending another six months of study. Prom 1963 to 1967 she was a guidance counsellor, mainly in Cardslon, Alta., for the Blood Indian reservation. She transferred to Leth- bridge as co-ordinator of the guidance program lor Indian schoolchildren in southern Al- berta until 1970. As field worker for the women's institutes last sum- mer, she visited northern set- tlements to find out what handicrafts institute members there were interested in doing so they could be supplied with materials not readily avail- able in the North.
