Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We were disappointed in your answer to "The Gimp." You indicated that ''the insensitive clods in the world'1 cannot be changed and the amputee who couldn't handle his problem had obviously failed to make a "complete adjustment." A person with your enormous readership is in an excellent position to help change the attitudes of insensitive clods" and believe me, handicapped persons and their families need all the help they can get. Is it asking too much of so-called "normal" people to adjust a little and show some kindness to those who have lost a limb, or their sight, or have distorted speech due to deafness or cerebral palsy? Dr. Howard Ruck brought this forcibly to our attention during World War II when the veterans were coming home. He pointed out that many veterans had to return to hospitals because of emotional problems created by the community's lack of sensitivity and understanding especially if they disfigured or badly crippled. True, handicapped persons must learn not to be hyper- sensitive, but ve need to educate the community to feel more comfortable around the handicapped They should not stare and gasp, nor turn their heads away as if the sight is too horrible to look at. None of our immediate family is disabled, hut we have experienced the same reactions which "Tbe Gimp" expressed when we have taken our handicapped friends to public ac- tivities. Once we were asked not to bring a man into a res- taurant because his presence makes the other customers sick. Please Ann. let the community know they have a re- sponsibility to keep social contacts available to people who have a physical, mental or emotional "difference." Thank you. and Mrs. Henry W. Ellis, Executive Directors of Outlook, Longwood. Florida DEAR FRIEXDS: You have given us all a lesson in com- passion and moral responsibility and I thank you for it. Howard Rusk's autobiography, "A World To Care For" is a fascinating history of rehabilitation in this country. Dr. Rusk is my candidate for sainthood and the book is a must for all petTple who must face life with a physical handicap. Confidential to Crystal Bail Gazing And Seeing Clouds: Everybody marries for love. But sometimes it is love of money, power, social position, list is end- less.
