__ W.dnMdoy, July If, THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "You should have a big day today." Handicapped want better integration Ann Landers CALGARY (CP) Handi- capped persons should have a greater say in determining wliat assistance they receive from social service agencies, says a brief submitted to city and provincial governments. The brief was prepared by a group of disabled izens' Commitlee for the Phys- ically Handicapped after sur- veys and interviews gained op- inions from many handicapped Calgarians. The committee said lhal dur- Woman agents tor FBI WASHINGTON (CP1 Two women, one a former Roman Catholic nun, took their oalhs of office here to become I h e FBI's first female agents. They are Susan Lynn Roley, 35, of Long Beach, Calif., a for- mer U.S. Marine Corps officer, and Joanne E. Pierce. 31, of Niagara Falls, N.Y., a mem- ber of the Sisters o f Mercy from 1959 10 1870. They became eligible lo ap- ply for the positions after L. Patrick Gray, the acting dir- ector, announced May 12 a change in the agency's male- only policy. The late .1. Edgar Hoover, whom Gray succeeded, had op- posed hirijig women to conduct criminal investigations on grounds that the work was too dangerous. The first duty of I he new agents will be to attend a 14- week training course that in- cludes instruction on the use of revolver, rifle and shotgun. They will also be taught hand- to-hand combat. irg the survey "handicapped I citizens expressed the desire [or integration into the main- stream of community life especially in education, employ- meet, accommodation and recre- j alion." The education and training of j disabled persons should take place in regular schools and vocation centres rather than special institutions. This would allow such people lo more eas- ily enter the labor market. The brief also called for "more realistic efforts" to find the handicapped jobs and sug- gested that groups assisting Idissbled persons hire more handicapped for their own ag- j encies. I Mary Kozicliy, a member of the committee, said such luring j policies would improve the I quality of service. "You can't understand the problem; of a person confined [to a wheelchair unless you have been there yourself.'1 Transportation is a major problem with only three buses, 1 each capable of carrying six 'persons in wheelchairs, to serve people. The brief recommends the municipal government provide a public transportation service, possibly in the form of a dial- a-bus system like that used in Regina for regular customers. Other suggestions In the brief include: A study info housing needs for handicapped persons Tax relief to allow crippled people to adapt their homes to comfortable wheelchair living Subsidies to employers hir- j ing handicapped persons Government assistance to disabled persons qualified lo operate their own business The committee suggested j recreational and entertainment I facilities be made to handle I wheelchairs so handicapped people would not have to at- tend segregated centres.

When he kissed me goodbye and said, "Don't wait up for me. It will be a late I thought my heart would break. I collapsed in a chair and reached for a book, any book to take my mind off my misery. Several of your old columns which I had clipped fell out. The first column. 1 read was dated March 24, 1971. It was signed, "Territorial Impera- tive." The woman wrote, "Every man is vulnerable at some time during his life, no matter how faithful, strong and honor- able. The most wonderful husband in the world can have feet of clay I read thai column over and over and over. It was as if someone had pulled the curtains and let the sunshine in. I told myself I could waif. I prayed for strength and patience. I know for certain he will come back lo me one day and when he does I will welcome him with open arms. There must be thousands of women in your reading audi- ence who will be faced with this problem sooner or later. Not all of them would choose this alternative. Some will shout, "Why put up with it? I'm going to throw the bum To those women I say, ''Each of us must do what she feels is best for her and her family. I'm doing what is best for me and mine." Thanks for your Ann. You've been a life-saver. I'll Make It Now DEAR FRIEND: Thanhs lor letting me know. Write again when you have some good news. DEAK ANN LANDERS: Please print this letter for the benefit of others who don't know they can get hooked on nose drops and nasal sprays. It started when 1 was pregnanl and having trouble breath- ing The doctor suggested a nasal decongestant. He said the directions were on the bottle. To make a long story short, 1 got hooked. II became all the time, leaving restaurant tables sometimes three or four times to go spray my nasal passages If ran out of decongestanl I panicked like an addict who needed a fix. When 1 told my doctor I was afraid I was addicted he said. "The only way lo gel olf is lo quil using it." I tried, but my sinuses swelled up and my eyes became ved and puffy. My Ihroal was so sore I could barely swallow. I fi- nally got off the stuff by medicating only one nostril and let- ting the other one heal. Then I suffered through, cold turkey, with the second nostril Please tell people lo be careful. Just because 3 product can be purchased without a prescription doesn't mean it is Who Nose DEAR ONE: You told them, and in a way 1 couldn't have. And I might add that you certainly didn't get much help from your doclor. He should have prescribed other medicalion that would have provided relief and unhooked you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Why are parents so evil-minded? Why do they always think the worst. Here's my story and please tell me what you think. Last night my boy friend came over ?.nd my parents were watching some dumb thing on TV. We decided to go to sisler's room and listen to records. Well, we were just lying on the bed holding hands when my dad happened to walk by and see us. He got very mad and lold us lo get downstairs right away. He kept mumbling things under his breath and the more he mumbled the madder he gol. Finally, he said. "I don't want lo see lhal guy around here any more." He meant it. What did we do wrong? Is il so horrible to hold hands wilh; someone you DEAR D.P.: I'm sure your dad did not object lo your hold- ing hands- If you had been sitting on (he sofa he probably would not have said a word. What he DIDN'T like was the fact that you two were lying in bed together, and I go along with him. But I do hope he will reconsider a.arl not bar the guy from your house. In exchange for this reversal, promise to stay out of the bedroom and remain vertical. And don't tell me, if kjds want to do something they can manage in Hie kitchen, the car, or a phone booth. I've heard all those answers. Use your smarts, and don't make trouble for yourselves. EXPANSION WE MUST CLEAR OUR STOCK SO WE CAN REMODEL OUR STORE PRICES NEVER LOWER SHOP NOW!
