Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta DEAR ANN LANDERS: Why didn't you tell "Worried in Seattle," - the woman who said her husband is killing himself with food,-that he wants to die. I know what I'm talking about because I am that man-and there are many others like me. My religion forbids divorce so there's no way out for me. My marriage fell apart a long time ago. Home, to me, means nagging, complaining, endless arguing and screaming. The tension and hostility is indescribable. My wife has managed to kill any sexual desire I might have had. When I look at her now it's difficult to believe I ever wanted her. Eating is the only pleasure left in my life. In the 24 years we've been married I have never cheated on my wife. She has soured me so thoroughly on the entire female sex that any thought of another woman is just as nauseating as the thought of her. If obesity will shorten my Life I say, "Pass the second piece of pie-a-la-mode." It's too late to give me any advice, Ann Landers, but if you have a comment I'd like to hear it.-Two-Ton Tommy DEAR TOMMY: Your admission that you want to die, comes as no surprise to me. The only thing that surprises me is that you recognize the motivation behind your excessive eating. Most compulsive eaters aren't so introspective. I am NOT talking about people who are 10 to 20 pounds overweight. I mean people who should lose SO or 75 pounds. The person who likes himself takes care of himself. Individuals who eat too much and drink too much, or mess around with drugs, are subconsciously trying to achieve one goal-self destruction. You didn't ask for advice so I won't offer any. Furthermore I suspect you know the solution but you'd rather keep on doing what you're doing. So to you I say, good luck and farewell.    DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been out of town for several days but my wife saves your columns for me. I hope I'm not too late to offer a workable solution to the barking dog problem. This is how we did it. My wife and I were becoming literally worn out from a lack of sleep. The dog next door howled and barked regularly from about 2 a.m. until 4 a.m. We reviewed several alternatives and settled on a diplomatic solution which was not entirely cricket-but we were desperate. That night we telephoned the neighbor promptly at 2:15 a.m. after about 15 minutes of barking. A very sleepy man answered. I said in a polite voice, "Your dog is barking." He replied, "WHAT?" I repeated, "Your dog is barking." He hung up. Three minutes later the barking stopped. The next night the barking began on schedule. I made another telephone call. Same message. Same response. Within ten minutes the barking stopped. The dog started to bark again at 5 a.m. I telephoned once more, and again the neighbor hung up on me, but I bad to make only two calls after that one. We have not seen the dog since and we don't know if they still have him. But we DO know we are no longer awakened at odd hours and that's all we care about.-Peace In Kansas City DEAR PEACE: I see nothing "un-cricket" about your solution. Nothing succeeds like success.

Civic boards, commissions outlined for city women By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor One of the hardest things an alderman has to perform in his civic role is to forget personal prejudices, Tom Ferguson, former city manager, told members of the Lethbridge branch of the Canadian Federation of University Women Monday night. He cited the example of the alderman who may fight tooth and nail for a recommendation to be outvoted by the rest of council. An alderman may either then give his support for the project even though outvoted, or still refuse to give any assistance whatever. "The alderman has to keep in mind that he is representing more fan just a few persons," said Mr. Ferguson. Mr. Ferguson gave a short teach-in to the women's group on the city's boards and commissions and how the city developed in its civic affairs. Mr. Ferguson reached further back than his 25 years' experience within the walls of city hall, to the days when Lethbridge was a "company town" back in 1890. The Oldman River was still the Belly and much of what is now North Lethbridge was outside the city limits. On Dec. 29, 1890 voters gave approval to becoming a town, and in what is probably the first concession to industry, the Northwest Coal and Navigation Company gave its approval as well, in return for a section of land exempt from taxes except school taxes for 20 years. The first council met on Feb. 3 and Mayor Charles Alexander Magrath, for whom Mayor Ma-grath Drive was named, uttered a few prophetic words. He predicted that coal mining would not be the only industry to settle here, and referred to "the pure crystal water" of the river which was an "absolute requirement." There was no problem in changing the town to a city in 1905 and Lethbridge began to boom, holding the Dry Farmins Congress in 1912.' The commission form of government came in for a few sharp words from Mr. Ferguson who looks to the managerial form of government (the present one) as decidedly better.

Association In 1927 this was eventually changed by plebiscite and in 1928 seven councillors were elected with one in turn elected by them as mayor. Mr. Ferguson noted that the present method of electing the mayor is a deviation from the true managerial form of government. Under the commission form of government way back when, each councillor was paid $5 for each meeting he attended, the mayor was paid $4,000 and his two commissioners of public works and utilities each got $3,500. In answer to a question concerning the present aldermen's salaries, Mr. Ferguson said he has always felt that the aldermen were underpaid. At one time, when they received $100 a month, in a study he did on the hours several aldermen put in, their pay was 20 cents an hour. Mr. Ferguson also suggested that ar;' women who were interested in either attending city council meetings, or becoming members of the various boards and commissions in the city to do so. NDP-MP advocates abortion. Alliance for Life does not OTTAWA (CP) - Grace Mac-Innis tangled with the Alliance for Life here in a discussion of abortion at St. John's Church. The NDP member of Parliament for Vancouver Kingsway is a strong advocate of liberalizing the abortion laws while the Alliance for Life is as strong against the move. Mrs. Maclnnis urged that the present restrictive abortion laws be wiped off the Criminal Code. Mrs. M. R. Hargraves, speaking for the Alliance, said "the current obsession with rights" look no account of the rights of the unborn. But Mrs. Maclnnis said the right to life and such questions as when does life begin and is a fetus a functioning human being are philosophical and still unanswered. She said the matter must bp one of personal conscience, not THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "Any kid whose ambition is to shine Spire Agnew's shoes can't be all bad." to be forced on women.
