Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
20 1HC LETHBKIDGE HERALD Monday, January 31, Ann d. Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a teen-ager who doesn't want lo talk to anybody about what's on my mind because they'd think right away I was into drugs, which I an not. I'm trying to Iciirn all I can about drugs before I decide if I to experiment a little. Most of the stuff I have read is scare junk. Almost all the articles mention emotional sta- bility as an important factor. They say an unstable person is a lot more likely to get mto trouble with drugs than the person who is stable. The question I want to ask is this: How can a teen-ager tell if he is stable? Do you have any clues, things to look for? I'd sure appreciate an answer. I'll bet a lot of other teen- age readers would, loo, Thanks. Mind DEAR 0: You're probably been reading articles on mari- juana. Most authorities say that one of the key factors which determines whether a smoker will get into trouble with pot is his level of emotional stability. Here are some questions a teen-ager might ask himself: Do you Tec! left out and passed over by the kids you'd like to be going Are you lonely a lot of the time? Do you get depressed and wonder if there's something awfully wrong with you? Do you feel you are a disappointment to your parents? Do your parents bug you so much that you want to give them a hard time to get even? Are you uptight in situations where other kids your age seem to be handling things with no sweat? Do you cry for no reason? Do you get into hassles wilh people over small things and regret it later? Do you shoplift or steal things from school? Are you overweight but don't have the will power lo stay on a diet? Do you lie a lot? Are you sick often with headaches, stomach aches, or other physical problems that the doctor can't find a reason lor? If you answer yes to most of these questions, you'd better thiiii: twice before fooling around with anything that might alter your msntal machinery. This means marijuana as well as harder stuff. And even if you IN.H answer no straight down the line, consider the fact that you could be one of the unlucky tods who runs inlo trouble with the law. It could ruiii your life. I've had letters from teen-ager; and their parents that make you wonder whether such things could happen here. The laws pertaining lo marijuana are still archaic and inhumane in most places. Any kid who leaves himself open to a pot charge is taking one heck of a foolish chance.

Several of our most enthusioslic girl-watchers have gone into serious decline during the recent cold spell when there was nothing to watch but high bools, maxis and mufflers. As temperatures rose on Friday morning, girLwatcher-in chief Jim Elliolt came to the rescue of his fellow sufferers and sponsored a bikini contest on his early morning radio show. Many Lefhbndge girls heroically braved the elements to bring a litlle joy into the lives of the menfolk. Mrs. Marlene Lament was the -first ihrough the door at CJOC (at a.m.) and won a white fun fur coat, which she will now use to cover up her bikini. How about making it white fun fur slippers or ear muffs next time, Jim? YWCA news Mothers take a break!

Giacomazzi, flowers. love is... giving up smok- ing together: OTTAWA (CP) Regis- tered nurses are poorly uti- lized in much of the work they are required to do, says Irene Buchan. She thinks she Is making progress in changing the system. "Look at what nurses are she exclaims. "They're running around de- livering trays, giving out bed- time suppers, going down to the hospital pharmacy with prescriptions, hurrying with x-ray reports, taking flowers to patients' rooms. "Dietary aides and messen- gers can do all that. "It is poor utilization ot staff. Nurses are hired and paid to give nursing care to patients and they spend much of their time doing all kinds of things that are sometimes sheer housekeeping." Miss Buchanan is not a lone crusade to make Canadian hospitals more efficient and helping to reduce costs. Back- ing her is the federal depart- ment of health and welfare which runs the hospital insur- ance and diagnostic services directorate. She is one of the directo- rate's three nursing consult- who move into a hospital and try to make it tick more smoothly. Among their prior- ity recommendations: Trained nurses shouldn't be errand girls. In five years as a nursing consultant Miss Buchan has sought to improve efficiency in hospitals in every province. A hospital, through its provin- cial commission, requests as- sistance and a federal team moves in. "There are three of Miss Bucnan said in an inter- view. "We look at the total hospi- tal. Tne nurse on the that's a study of the nursing department from ad- ministration right down to pa- tient care on the nursing units. IRENE BUCHAN "The dietician does a study of the dietary department and the administration consultant does a study of all the other departments. "We come out with recom- mendations which will im- prove, first of all, (he quality of patient care, improve effi- ciency within the hospital and reduce costs." Winnipeg-born Irene Buchan began helping people in Leth- bridge, Alta., where she grew up and where she took her early training. Her salesman father moved there when he found jobs hard to get in the 1930s. In the years following her graduation in 1947 she worked in small hospitals and large hospitals in a half-dozen Al- berta towns and cities. She spent a year in a war vet- erans hospital In Calgary. Only four years after gradu- ation she was appointed direc- tor of nursing (matron) In hospital In Olds, 60 miles north of Calgary. But she and a friend de- cided that "we're getting on in 27; perhaps we'd better go to university." Miss Buch.an took a post- graduate course in teaching and 'supervision at the Univer- sity of got her baccalaureate at McGill in Montreal several years later then taught medical nursing in Calgary for two years. But her feet were still itchy. She and her friend took off for the United States, then to Eu- rope, working in a hospital In England for a period at the equivalent of a month. Then followed five years of general duty in Alberta hospi- tals and an 18-month tour of Canada on a research project for the Canadian Nurses Asso- ciation before taking up ber present work.

He set me to work clearing new land behind the farmhouse. By tha end of the month I'd cleared about an acre, but there were so many redbirds, squirrels and butterflies to catch a little fella's attention that I guess I didn't work hard enough. Anyway, Charlie Norris gave me my two dollars and I was fired. When I got home and gave myMom tha Iwo dollars and told her what had happened she gave me a lecture I shall never forget. She wanted to know what I was ever goin1 to amount to if I couldn't keep a job at two dol- lars a month. And right then and there I made a resolve never to let the hours or the hard work in- terfere wilh doing the best Job I could, whatever I did." His Mom's words made a great impression on Ihe Colonel, and triL philosophy of life he devel- oped then hasn't changed to this day. And along wilh his secret recipe he passes this along to his boys.
