Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 21, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: How about a word of encouragement for us unemployed folks? There are a lot of us these days and we need a lift. I have been a widow for 12 years. I worked full time to support my child. In addition to my job I went to school at night so I could qualify for a better-paying position. All the years I worked I never drew a dime of unemployment compensation nor did I ask anyone for help. The last company I worked for was shut down several weeks ago. I had to go on unemployment or starve. There just aren't any jobs to be had in this town and I was up against it. It's bad enough to be on welfare, but the insults I have to take when I go downtown to collect my check makes starving to death an attractive alternative. The first question the woman at the unemployment office asked me was, "Did you lower your starting wage?" Then she gave me a speech about how much the state of California paid out last month because of people like me. Finally she shrieked, "It's going to get a lot worse out here in California- what with all you hillbillies coming here thinking you can live on oranges. You're not bad looking. Why don't you get married?" I didn't reply to her inane question and turned to walk away. She then shouted so everyone in the place could hear, "I hope you take my advice and say yes to the next guy who asks because if you get laid off again you won't have any fund to fall back on." Are welfare recipients treated so crassly everywhere, or just in California?-Fed Up In Fullerton DEAR FED FULL: I'm sure there are some very pleasant people in the Unemployment Offices in California, but you just happened to pick a lemon - and in the land of oranges yet. I apologize in behalf of the decent folks out there. And please forgive the clod. It might have been something she ate. ? ? * DEAR ANN LANDERS: The correspondent who signed herself "Natalie" is a lucky lady. She described her children's granny as a no bra, platinum blond swinger who wears 20 pounds of costume jewelry and spends her time in beauty salons. My children have a granny and a gramps who have been drunk for 30 years. This pair of kooks has ruined every holiday as far back as I can remember. One day will you please devote a column to alcoholism disguised as "social drinking"? -Marion, Ohio DEAR MARION: I have and I will do so again. Alcoholism has wrecked more mam ages, careers and healthy bodies than any single element known to man. ? ? ? "The Bride's Guide," Ann Landers' booklet, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about weddings. To receive your copy of this comprehensive guide, write to Ann Landers, in care of Canada Wide Feature Service Limited, 245 St. James Street West, Montreal 126, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 35 cents in coin.

PHONE 327-5454 CAC expands magazines OTTAWA - Consumers' Association of Canada (CAC) today announced it is replacing its bi-monthly magazine with two new ones, one in French, the other in English. The former magazine was half-and-half English and French. The English magazine will be called "Canadian Consumer" and the French one, "Le Con-sommateur Canadien." Jean M. Jones, CAC national president, said that the Association bad been planning extension of its services to French - speaking communities for a considerable time. The recommendations of the Royal Commiision on Bilingualism and Biculturalism reinforced the Association's decision to create two magazines, she continued. "We saw the need of producing a magazine in the French language> especially when our Quebec Association so dramatically emphasized the lack of consumer information in French," Mrs. Jones added. The contents of the two magazines will be similar but not necessarily identical, commented; Eric Lux ton, the editor of the magazines. CAC has published a bilingual magazine since 1963 and plans to increase the amount of information in both its publications as increased membership in the Association warrants. msn." gg"wtrceui�M mm.'" ��'mrc
