Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta W.dnttdoy, July 5, 1972 THI inHMIDCE HERALD 23 IA FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN Dear Margaret Brookriclil: My present husband and I were married not long after we lost our mates. He was then 53; I was 46. We each had two children. Alter the wedding, I sold my house and moved to my husband's farm. He never let me forget, however, that it was his house. He also turned out to be a compulsive drinker and a nagger, though a good provider in a way. When I really needed something, ho would dole out the money for it, but always made me re- member it. We've had 12 stormy years of marriage and numerous separations with one lasting a year. We're living apart right now. Whenever we have these separations, it's al- ways I who have lo go while he enjoys his home life as usual. (1 kept on working as a prac- tical nurse until partially dis- abled with a hearing I'm now living in a trailer near a hospital'and, at age 50, am fear- fully contemplating going back to work. When night comes on, I feel a yearning for his home. I panic at the thought of living alone. Meanwhile my husband has subtly been try- ing to get in touch with me and I really don't know what to do. The question is: is it better to suffer his vile temper and drinking for the questionable FROM THE TEST KITCHEN INSTANT PICNIC No need lo spend hours making picnic sandwiches. the basics, Cana- dian cheese, crusty French or rye bread and cold cuts.

(My children say I'm typo that wants to be punish Other than telling ma lha I'm the world's most indeci sive character, what do you Uiink? Any advice will be ap predated. E. H Dear E. II.: Your children obviously fini the situation painful, but all de- cisions in this matter must be yours and no one else's. You'] have to ask yourself no whether you're lonely, becausi you are but whether you're willing to go bouncing back and forth between these separa tions and reconciliations. I you are willing to go on, thei do so by all means. But i you've really had it, you d( have your practical nursing ti fall back on. And you migh think about having something done about your hearing dis ability and making a new lifi for yourself. Dear Margaret Brookfield: Alter having raised five chil dren ink) successful profes sional people, I'd like to be- come aciive in the workaday world again. My talents outside the home are limited however to a little music and a good knowledge of sewing. A! I know is, I'd hate being a clerk in some store. E. N Dear E. N.: So you Uiink your talents are limited. Actually, you have many more skills than you re alize. According to Julie Eich who conducted a back-to-work program in New Jersey re cently, the mature wonun lends to overlook the extensive job-related background and ex perience she has developed al home. Women like yourself Mrs. Rich points out, are con stantly dealing and working with people butchers, gro cers, repairmen, cleaning help etc. You also serve as traffic managers and as co-ordinators of recreational activities your own homes. What's more you balance the budget when i seems that it can't be done. So don't sell yourself short. Hais ing five successful children was no accident. And there's no reason why your music or sew- ing experience can't be put to work for you. To help evaluate your skills more realistically, there's a U.S. Labor Depart- ment pamphlet you might find useful. It's called "Jobfinding Techniques for Mature Wom- en." And it's available for 30 cents from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Govern- ton, B.C. 2M02.

The doctors reported the re- sults of their work in the Jour- nal of the American Medical As- sociation. The Israeli doctors said that HO women had SB single and eight twin births as a result of 9G pregnancies after ovulalion inducerf by the drug clomiphone citrate. This drug regulates or induces ovulation in women who are not ovulating hut have a po- tentially functional reproductive system. It was originally used experimentally as an oral con- traceptive. The women were given clomiphene tablets daily for five to seven days. Before treatment at the Tel- Hashomer government hospital In Tel Aviv between 1966 and 1970, the women had been ster- ile for an average of 5.4 years. They suffered from a lack of menstruation for at least six months, abnormally infrequent or scanty menstruation, a lack of ovulation or hormonal insuffi- ciency. Thirty-seven of the women had had 44 pregnancies prior to therapy which resulted in only 13 live infants.
