Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednetday, July 4, 1973 THl LtTMMIDOf HltALO Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: If you publish this letter it will probably take up your whole column, but it will be worth it if you can save just one kid from going through the bell I experienced trying to get off the hard stuff. I am a former heroin ad- dict now in the meUiadone program. I was shooting dope regularly for two years. I missed very few days and tbe days I did miss I was sick as a dog with stomach cramps, throwing up all over. I had to spend at least a day just so I wouldn't get sick and I wasn't even getting high. My best friends were main- liners. I was very close to five guys and every one of them is dead now. Two overdoses and three died of hepatitis from dirty needles. I got bapatitis myself last year. My girl caught it from me and so did my sister. We were all in the hospital at the same time. My sister nearly didn't make it. (Can you imagine my Even though I'm off tbe stuff now I can't get a de- cent job because I have to take a' physical. When the doe sees the tracks on my arms he knows I was an ad- dict and it goes on my rec- ord. Nobody wants an ex- junkie. Almost everybody who snorts has to push the stuff in order to support the habit. My best friend was my part- ner. We lived in constant fear of getting busted. The penalty in this state is life imprisonment. Trafficking in 'dope means going to tbe worst neighbor- hoods in the world. I've seen guys killed for worth of or a lid of horse. There's a lot more I could tell you but this letter is already too long. Like when your par- ents find out about you you'll want to kill yourself. I mean it. And I could tell you about same of the chicks on the street. I saw diem when first started husilicg. Really beautiful. After six months of prostitution, they look like tbeir own grand- mothers. By the way, I started on pot, like all the other needle freaks and acid heads I taw. Don't let anybody tell you different. Sign me Straightening Out M Massa- pequa And It's A Rough Go DEAR S- M.: Here's your letter every bit of it and I didn't change a word. Thank you for writing and my hat is off to you, fella. Three beauties Deborah Ducharme, centre, of Port Colbevrne, Ont., was 18-year-old Jay Olson of Tsawwdssen, B.C., and, chosen Miss Dominion of Canada at finals held at right, Na.ncy Henderson, also 18, of Argvle, Manitoba, Niagara Falls over the weekend. First runner-up, left, was runner-up. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently we were hit over the head with tibe fact that our eight-year-old son was shoplifting. When we went to the store to return everything the manager said, "This isn't the first time your son has stolen from us, you know." When we asked the manager why be didn't tell us what our boy was doing, he re- plied, "Because very few par- ents have your attitude. Most parents get angry and abu- sive. Or they say, 'So what can we do about it? The kid is no darned good.' We were shocked. My wife is a wreck, but I DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our boss 5s a very attractive, successful woman. She re- turned test week from a month's vacation looking ab- solutely fabulous. It's appar- ent she has bad her face lift- ed. We've told her she looks fan- tastic and she keeps telling us what a wonderful "rest" have' assured her that some common sense counselling would help us correct what ever is wrong with our child, But someone had to tell us what tbe boy was doing be- fore we could help him. Please, Ann, urge store own- ers who know about such things to inform tbe parents at once. It would be an act of charity. No Identification Please DEAR NO I.D.: I can't im- agine a store owner ignoring such a situation. If any out there are doing so, please, for tba child's sake, notify his parents. she had. I'd like to have my face done and I'm dying to know who did hers. Dare I ask? Tip Of My Tongue DEAR TIP :No. Ask her where she "rested." Tell her you want to go there, too. Tbe answer she gives will be as much as you're going to get out of her, so don't press. Lengthy teaching career to end EDMONTON (CP) When Bessie McAvoy stepped into her .first one-room schoolhouse 47 years ago, she was barely 17 years old and newly-graduated from tbe Calgary Normal school.

Her career, which ends this year, has seen the emphasis of education change over the years. Sba began at a time when teachers were expected to be able to teach any subject in any grade and is retiring at a time when specialization is the major emphasis. _ She has changed with those WeeWhimsv Magazine editor becomes feminist MONTREAL (CP) Five months as editor of the French version of Chatelaine magazine and "now I have to say I'm a feminist, after thirty-seven years of saying I was Francine Monpetit said in an in- terview. "My husband totally sup- ported me in my work. I couldn't imagine what 'A was these women were excited about. Now with tins work, I am reading letters from Quebec women about tbeir reality." Quebec women are not offi- cially feminists and tend to cling to tbeir bias about tbe kind of marriage and relation- ships' with their children they think they must have, she said. So French Chatelaine is be- coming more feminist. "We are asking women to look at their lives and see if tbev could not have something better."

While French Chatelaine has always taken translated mate- rial and much of the art work from the English version for budget reasons, "now English Chatelaine is going to take more Marie Roth will be wm the original art for hs quott.

She said she wished she was able to say the same for Que- bec men who have "no sense of gallantry."

Miss McAvoy, who a bachelor of arts degree, a bach- elor of education and a master of education, said all her de- grees were obtained during summer breaks and after school. "I was going to take a year off in 1913, to go back to school. "But tite war was on and we had been given an extra month's holiday in September so tbe boys could help get the harvest in. I took' a job in air- craft repair and didn't manage to take the year off." She started her career taach- iag physical aard decided to switch as she became older. 'I could see myself at about 50, having to start teaching English and social studies, so I took an interest in home eco- nomics. I've always'teen good at sewing." Miss McAvoy joined the public school system in 1930 and taught at 10 Edmonton schools. One of her students, Lou Hynd- men, now is education mtiZster. He took home economics for sis weeks as part of a program where boys and girls switched tbsir home economics options. "I would say tbe majority of the kids I bad were good ones. "You could get the occasional bad one, but on tbe whole they were good." The students, like the educa- tion system, have changad. "I'm sure they're a lot more mature at 17 nowadays than we she said. "They have more freedom in the class- room."

Sister Patricia Kelly, guid- ance counsellor at the school, said tbe main function of the program was to listen to prob- lems, to give whatever help they can, and if tbe matter is serious to refer the student to professional help.

"There's lots of room and the dogs certainly aren't cramped in little cages by any means." Three'years ago the society bought out the facilities of a cattle breeders' artificial insem- ination unit and found itself with a lot of space on its hands. The bull pens were turned into kennels and the buildings animal shelters. DEMAND HIGH "There was a big demand in M0tro Toronto) for boarding Mr. Hughes said. "That prompted us to start taking any dogs to be left for any length of time to Belleville." The society offers a free pick- up and delivery service. The pets can be picked up at home or the nearest shelter. There are also quarantine facilities. "We get a lot of dogs that come from Europe wtih mem- bers of the Canadian Forces who are returning from duty Mr. Hughes said. "They drop them off at Belleville and leave them there until they are relocated in Canada." In such cases the society meets tbe plane and picks up the pet. Immigrants bringing dogs with them from Europe also make use of tbe centre, he said. Animals left at the reeort must have proof of rabies and distemper vaccinations and if none is available the staff vete- rinarian will administer them. Judges protest abortion PARIS (Reuter) A group of anti-abortion lawyers, judges and law professors released a statement recently signed by jurists saying that liberal- ization of France's strict abor- tion law would be a first step toward "Nazi practices." The statement, to be sent to all parliamentarians, said jur- ists could not support, by tfaeir silence, a legislative reform "which would amount to the murder of innocent and de- fenceless beings." It said liberalizing abortion "was a first step toward euth- anasia, ethnocide and other Nazi practices." Following public pressure, es- pecially by women's groups, the government announced last month that it had drawn up liberalized abortion law to be submitted to parliament in the fall NEXT BEST THING S T LEONARDS-ON-SEA, England (CP) La view of Britain's astronomical beef prices, one buteheY in Sussex displayed the following sign in his shop window: "Hours of worship: 8 a.m. to 5.30 p.m." SEE THE AMAZING 4-WAY VORWERK The cleaner that will revolutionize house cleaning FAIRFIELD APPLIANCE SERVICES LTD. 1244 M AVE.
