Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Sprightly grandma thrives on action BOWIE, Md. (AP) When WUfatlmina True man cele- brates her 79th birthday next month, It won't be spent thinking about the past white rocking In front of a fireplace. That would be a much too setting for the sprightly grandmother, who thrives on action. Mn. Trueman admits to reading a lot, but only after she viats the race track nnd traini a string of six horses. On Feb. 16, her birthday, Mrs, Trueman expects to rise it 4 a.m. as usual and head for Bowie race course. But there will be one change from her daily routine. Instead of departing about 11 a.m. for her daughter's borne in Seabrook, Md., she'll stick around to greet the win- ner of the day's feature race, the Queen Wilhelmina Purse. Bowie Inaugurated the race in Mrs. Trueman's honor in 1967, and right away ran headlong into the septuage- nerlan. Instead of presenting a tro- phy, she went to the winner's circle to accept one after sad- dling Bronze Bout to victory on her 74tH birthday. Mrs. Trueman has been around race tracks since 1911, when she met her late hus- band, Elmer Trueman, at the now-defunct B e n n 1 n g race track In Washington, D.C. Truenun, a native of Can- ada who ww a top jockey be- fore becoming a trainer, died in 1963. A year later, Mn. Trueman applied for her lic- ence and scored the highest mark ever recorded on the trainer's test at Delaware Park. "It was she said modestly hi the Bowie barn the other day. "There was nothing to it, If you know what you're talking about." For years Mrs. Trueman was an unofficial trainer al- though her husband was al- ways listed as the only one in the family. "We'd both see certain things in she said. "You know, two heads are better than one, even if one is a cabbage bead." The daily early rising doesn't bother her, she said, "because six hours sleep Is enough for anybody." Mrs. Trueman contends re- tirement is the farthest thing from her mind. "Why retire when you're healthy? What would I do, sit around and twiddle my thumbs while waiting for judgment THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "You get what you pay for...Our license was only Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I want to say a few words to that big-mouth mother who was mad because her "statuesque' daughter decided to marry "a dried-up shrimp" six inches shorter than her Venus de Milo. She was worried about her unborn grandchildren afraid they would be runts. I am the mother of two young men, one the other Both my boys are being chased night and day by women of all ages. The fact' that my sons are not six-footers does not seem to matter to them. Most of the women who are running after my boys are si least 6'8" and plenty beautiful. This brings me to another point. I've seen some of the girls described by their mothers as "statuesque." They are long drinks of water with as much shape as a string of spaghetti. They will be lucky to get any kind of husband, hope you print this. P.S. How tall is your daughter? Does she have a husband yet? Record DEAR ON: Here's your letter. Our daughter is Yes she has a husband. He is DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently you published a letter from a woman who said she and her husband were deluged with visiting relatives since they had been transferred over and she wished they'd stay home. I'm sure it was my daughter who wrote and I'd like to address this letter to her DEAR DAUGHTER: We read your letter in Ann Landers column. Thanks a lot. Your dad and I have no intention of visiting you. We did that once and were treated like crea- tures from Mars. That didn't deter you, however, from visit- Ing US for months at a time, storing your furniture in our attic and making our home your home, with one we paid the bills. You allowed your children to break our furniture anc ruin our rugs. We were stuck babysitting while you ran around seeing old friends and making new ones. Please joy your stay in Europe, dear. We hope you have a and pleasant tour of duty. You will not be bothered by Your Mom and Dad DEAR M. and D.: I wonder why it took you both so long to level with each other. How much better It would have been had you done so from the beginning. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I enjoyed your statement about family trees, "Too often they turn out an abundance of sap.' Please print this added thought: "Also some crooked branches." M.B. (Chicago) DEAR CHIC: Right, you are. And shady, too.

Thunriav, Jmiwry 10, THI UTNMIDM HMMO ft Some emotional problems need medication, not talk NEW YORK (MW) Some emotional problems of older women may be more physical than psychological and belter treated with medication than with talk, according to Dr. Dor- othea Kerr, psychiatrist at the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic, who's over 40 herself. Dr. Kerr says she became In- terested In the relationship be- tween a deficiency and emotional symptoms at menopause when she took hor- mones as medication herself. "I then began to evaluate women patients in my age group and found much to my surprise that some of -their emotional symp- toms such as headaches, in- somnia and mood depressions had been relieved by the hor- mones their gynecologists bad prescribed." Traditional psychiatry, Dr. Kerr points out, once held that emotional symptoms could be treated only by psychotherapy, but since tranqirilizers and ant i-depressants came Into general use, "we psychiatrists have become body doctors as well as mind doctors again." Dr. KBIT, who holds an M.D. degree, DOW prucilbei xtrogen therapy for her psychiatric women patients whenever indi- cated. 'Their she reports, "has certainly been as good as I bad observed with tranquilizers and anti- depressants." THE BODY IS DYNAMIC The woman over 40, the psy- chiatrist believes, Is a "com- plex physical and emotional bo- ing and must be treated as such." She explains that at menopause, a wom.rn's repro- ductive cycle ends: the ovaries wind down and so too, does their production of the female hormone. This cre- ates a deficiency setup, she says, somewhat like a vitamin deficiency. "Therefore, the way I treat menopausal psychatric patients depends on the needs of then- bodies as well as their minds, because the body as well as the mind is a dynamic, flexible, shifting, moving thing." Many women in their late 40's and SO's, Dr. Kerr notes, are particularly sensitive to the decrease in their estrogen levels. "At that time, almost all of them have HOE, some feeling of Inner ten- sion, that we call anxiety." Un- less their symptoms are ic- vere, however, the majority don't go to an their doctors. "They say: I can't expect to feel aa well u I once did. I just have to grin and bear K." OLD-FASHIONED NOTIONS Some women still don't real- ize the menopause fa a "nor- mal and nahral" stage of lift, Dr. Kerr asserts. "They retain the old-fashioned notion that women are supposed to suffer." The psychiatrist admits had some fears of thi; herself -not because of old wivci' tales but because of the troublesome experience her own mother had. "Yet this kind of suffering is unnecessary vhen you realize how easily menopausal symptoms can bt treated."
