Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Somehow, I became the victim or the unwelcome neighbor. I remained victimized by her for two years. Mrs. Noodnik was at my door ringing the doorbel before I was out of bed. She invited herself in, had cotfee and stayed. At it was necessary for her to go home and take her pills and a nap, so she left. At Mrs Noodnik was back. She had fed her husband a can of tuna for supper and was ready to join us at our dinner table fcr a cup of coffee. Every time I backed the car out of the garage she was standing in the driveway with a "request." Would I please bring her a pack of cigarettes or a loaf of bread or quart of milk or some postage stamps. My husband got so fed up witli her presence he told me that if I didn't keep that woman out of our house he was leaving. You are right, Ann. There is no polite way to handle clods. They must be told off in plain language. They do not understand tact or social grace. Please keep telling 'em, Ann. People need to bear it again and again and again. Slow Learner DEAR LEARNER: I will, I will, I will. Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN: Last August you published an enthusiastic and grateful letter from a woman who learned about Al- Anon through your column. Within one monln we received nearly letters as a direct result of that one mention. The timing was nothing less than miraculous. Had It oc- cured before our recent move, we'd have been paralyzed by the lack of space. As it is, there is scarcely a place which is not occupied by staff or volunteers sorting the letters by stales, cities and towns, thanks to you. Volunteers have responded nobly. Without them, heaven knows how this beautiful crisis could have been met. There will be no way to get an exact count of how many new members rail join Al-Anon as a result of that single letter in your column. There is little doubt that Al-Anon has no more effective and enthusiastic friend in all the world than Ann Landers. Long may she live and write her spirited col- umns! The Staff DEAR STAFF: Thanks for those kind words. Now, get ready for more mail. For all you readers out there who arc living with an alcoholic, 1 urge you write to the National Headquarters of this splendid organization, Al-Anon. You might learn that you are an unwitting factor in the alcoholism of a husband or wife. You might also learn how to help him or her win the bat- tle of the bottle. The address is Al Anon P.O. Box 661, Leth- bridge, Alberla. Wrile for a free booklet. And please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Postage can run into money. Take it from someone who knows. DEAR ANN: I'm 21 and living at home, paying room md board because 1 want to save money for marriage. The problem is my brother. He's sweet and generous but he's a hippie who believes in doing bis own thing, which does not include work. Greg is 22, served in Vietnam and when he came back he had an apartment with two buddies. He wouldn't pay his share so they asked him to leave. Greg is living at home now and doesn't pay for anything. My folks bought him a car, new clothes, they give him spending money and they pay his bills. I hale tlie way he is taking advantage of them. They both work hard, and we aren't rich. They say, "We can't turn our backs on him." I love my brother, Ann, but I'm disgusted wilh Ihe bum. Comment, City DEAR CARD: Why should your brother work? He has free room and board, a car, someone who pays his bills and gives him spending money. It's a perfect setup for a loafer. When he discovers he has to be responsible for himself he'll go lo work. Not until. Confidential to Finders Keepers: Sorry, I don't think much of your "logic." The rest of the saying is "Losers Weep- ers." Do you want to be responsible for all those tears?

Her students, -who vary from the small to the tall, are taught the intricacies of beadwork in the friendly atmosphere of the centre, left to right, Mrs. Good Rider, Jim Goldie, Ervin Yellow Feel, and Jeanne Smith.. By JUDE TUniC S'.sff Writer Friendship and beadwork that's what it's all about. And there are a lot of people taking advantage of il. Beading classes sponsored by the Lethbridge Friendship Centre have been well attend- ed, and productive loo. Madeleine Good Rider, class instructor, said that she has found the students to be "inter- ested and pleased" wiLh the course. Mrs. Good Rider ex- plained that the lessons are designed lo work up from sim- ple ring making to the com- bining of patterns and methods to fonn flat work medallions, belts, or whatever the individ-. ual prefers. "During the first class." said Mrs. Good Rider, "they (the students) were taught to make rings, and all completed one. We've progressed to making neckpieces, and when the class- es are over, the students will be able to combine techniques and continue on their own." Enthusiasm was not lacking in the class, and one woman was proud to show off her magnifying glass, a Christmas present from her husband. Mrs. Helen Scheurkogel, a native of Holland, said, "I came here to learn lo do a different type of handicraft work. I did a lot in Holland, and this is interesting too." The magnifying glass, she said, helps her to see the beads and the spaces so much better. Lighting is a problem, and as only one large lamp is avail- able, the studuils must all sit together at a table in order to see adequately. Materials are supplied by Mrs. Good Rider, bought from her by the students, and con- stitute the fees for the course. Veronica Scott, centre direc- tor, said that there has been an exceptionally good turnout and it is hoped it mil continue through lo March when the classes end. Individuals within the class express ed Iheir satisfaction and as one member put it while holding a handful of bsads, "I hope to make something out of I VWCA news "The lime has the walrus said, "to speak of many lings."
