Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Deaf woman has cheerful outlook By JUDE TURIC Herald Staff Writer For 92 years Blanche Bond hue lived in a world of silence. She has never heard her bab- ies laugh or cry; never enjoy- ed the sound of music or rec- ognized the ticking of a clock. But it has been a good life, and often an unusual one. Expressing herself with spee- dy finger movements, interpret- ed by her daughter Julia Ewing, Mrs. Bond said she has always considered herself a lucky person. "There are so many people who are unhealthy, and it's them I feel sorry for, but I am only deaf.'-' The statement is typical of her outgoing and cheerful atti- tude which keeps her much younger than the 92 years she boasts. An independent wo- man, Mrs. Bond only recently moved from her downtown apartment where she lived alone for 16 years. Born in Arichat, Cape Bre- ton Island, Nova Scotia, Mrs. Bond was one of two deaf chil- dren in a family of seven. Her education began at the Halifax-School for the Deaf where she was schooled in the arts of cooking, sewing, mak- ing of fur pieces aad hate; as well as undertaking the study of sign language, lip reading and learning to use her voice for certain phrases. "We were taught by methods which Alexander Graham Bell explained Mrs. Bond through Julia, "and I once presented his deaf wife with a bouquet of flowers when I was a child." She added both the Bells' patted her on the head and she has never forgotten tbe wonder- ful experience. they are so active in sports." Julia explained her mother always showed an interest in all sports and instilled the value of activity in her children. "Mom always told MS sports were healthy and had us take part in most everything there Julia said. Mrs. Bond raised five chil- dren, all of whom were taught sign language at home, and learned to speak from neigh- bors and other children. "All my babies were good ba- said Mrs. Bond, "They Mrs. Bond continued her schooling at a college in Bos- ton, after which she married and travelled west to homestead at High River. "My life was very quiet said Mrs. Bond, "we had no radio, television or car. The opportunities open to young peo- ple now are just wonderful. It's so nice to see that they have much more than we did. "All youngsters are beautiful, and it really pleases me to see were always on a routine they ate on time and went to sleep.on time and weren't any trouble to me. Julia added ''mom taught us as much in the home as she pos- sibly could, and we learned the rest out in the world like all children do." "We understood mom was explained Julia, referring to their childhood, "but it didn't seem to make any difference. She happened to Inability to smelly taste result of strange disease WASHINGTON (AP) A United States government medi- cal researcher says possibly Americans are unde- tected sufferers of a disease whose victims have lost their sense of taste 'or smell, or to whom everything tastes or smells awf uL Dr. Robert Henkin, who first described tbe disease in medi- cal literature two yeans ago, says only a few U.S. doctors have so far shown awareness and concern about the problem. He says simple treatment is available, but few patients have bad their ailment definitely diagnosed. The malady is not a killer, he to taste or smell any kind of food, including his beloved pizza That was bad enough, but a week or so later, he found that virtually all foods, again in- cluding his pizzas, "smelted and tasted like manure or decaying garbage professional soldier who, at age 48, suddenly found all food, especially beef and pork, was foul or disgusting to taste and smell. Water tasted so foul that he had. to spit it out.

Treatment consists of daily, doses of zinc sulfate capsules, to be continued throughout the patient's life, as far as doctors now know.

Among tbe highlights of Mrs. Bond's life, was meeting Helen Keller, the famous blind deaf- mute whose life was tbe basis or the movie Tbe Miracle Worker. "Miss Keller spent three months at the Fraser Hunt Ranch at High said Mrs. Bond, "and I was asked to be a companion to her for that time.

A Lethbridge resident for over 20 years, Mrs. Bond keeps active with her knitting, doing cereamics, painting, decorat- ing wall plaques and enjoys watching TV. She has a keen interest In Canadian politics and likes to be aware of world situations by reading tbe newspapers. In past years, Mrs, Bond, with Julia acting as her interpret- er, have guest lectured at city schools, bringing an under- standing of the deaf world to children; as well as quiring to other interested groups. Mrs. Bond concluded, saying sbe has never bad a problem communicating, and always carries a pad and pencil with her to make her wishes under- stood.

That checklist seemed directed to- ward tbe businessman or woman. Ours is concerned with tbe balanced relation- ship between parents and their children. We hope you will print it. 1. If you haven't shown some real affection for your children today, you've wasted the day. 2. Have you caught your- self lately leaving tbe task of discipline to your mate? Have you apologized recent- ly for a time when you dis- ciplined your children while reacting to moods, rather than in fairness? 3. When was the last time you spent a totally unpro- ductive evening with your family? Have you taken in a movie, gone on bike rides, flown kites, or just put a puzzle together? If it's been longer than two weeks, pre- pare for future communica- tion problems. 4. Have you been too busy working on a part-time job to share yourself with your chil- dren? 5. Do you work until all hours, then bring gifts? Re- member, your presents don't mean nearly as much as your presence. 6. Have you recently given your children a day of free- dom to do as they please? Remember that they need a chance to dear their heads and pursue personal ests. Privacy is as important to them as it is to you. 7. Do you prejudge jour children on the assumption that all children are delin- quents? Treat them as hon- orable, trustworthy individ- uals and see what a .differ- ence it will make. Children tend to become what you ex- pect them to be. If you give your children love, time, privacy, under- standing and discipline, the lines of communication will always be open and you will be spared the anxiety and heartache that we see so much of these days.
