Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ThurtJoy, July Z7, THI LETHMIDGE MtRAlD 17 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We arc a group of Winnipeg teen- agers who wisli to thank you for your forthright opinion on that weirdo-freak superstar who comes out loaded with jewelry, dressed like a dame and docs this creepy number where she chops off a doll's head and the mnkc-helieve blood all over lite stage. The psycho hangs himself at the close of the act. I'll bet you caught plenty of heat from the lunatics who flunk that lousy noise is right on. Too bad they don't rec- ognize hysterical emotionalism for what if is. Entertainment should Ic-uvc an audience with a deeper appreciation for beauty. We object to groups that use cheap sensationalism and shock stuff to musk a lack of talent. American and Canadian teenagers should rebel against junk at ridiculous prices by organizing clubs U) stamp out violence, perversion and creepy groups. For a generation that claims to be against v.'ar, against pollution, and says it uar.ts to save lite1, environment, v.hy not start by eliminating Ihe garbage from our ewi> lives The lyrics to some of Lhe biggest hits are so dirty, I'm sure the adults don't know what the words mean. We're glad you had the courage to print that letter. Ann. With You DEAR WITH: Thanlrs for writing. The mail ran 10 lo one AGAINST US. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm upset and can't think straight. Just say "go" or "don't go." A good friend phoned last night to say she and her sister had just finished addressing the invitations to her wedding. They had miscalculated somehow and were six invitations short. She asked if I would feel hurt if I didn't receive an en- graved invitation, but a note instead. I said. "Of course not." Now my mother fells me I am crazy that I should not go to the wedding because it is plain that my friend considers me less important than the olher guests. What do you say? I really want to go, Ann. Bon Bon DEAR BON: T say go. The bride is obviously in 3 spot and she is counting on her closest friends to understand. Don'L let her down. Confidential lo Miserable. Unhappy and Insignificant: Try to be pleasant and uncomplaining. Thirteen is a horrible age for a girl who has a sister sixteen. I promise that life will be brighter when you are sixteen and she is nineteen. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My boylriend and his parents are planning a cross counlry trip in a trailer. He invited me lo go afong. There would be his parents, his sister. Josh and me. Josh and I are both 17. I asked my folks and they said it would be O.K. Now Josh tells me his folks have changed their minds. I am very upset. My folks wonder what their reason was. Should they call Josh's folks and ask? Disappointed DEAR DIS: No. Josh's folks should have called your folks and issued the invitalion. Since they did not, you were not actually invited. Home of Canadian heroine restored by descendant By JEAN SHARP t'P Women's Editor OUliENSTON, Onl. (CD Among the authenticated arti- facts in Laura Sccord's newly reslorod home is a rusly cow bell bought as a joke for SO cents. "S o in c o n e should have killed lhat cow years says Gerald Stevens, the Ca- nadian authority who fur- nished Ihe house. The cow he means lived in legend only She was supposed lo have accompanied Mrs. Se- cord on her 20-mile walk through woods and fields to warn a British force that the Americans were coming. WROTE MEMORIAL The Secords lived in Ihe house in Quecnslon from lo 1835. Laura's husband James, was a merchant and militiaman who suffered sc. vere and crippling wounds in the battle of Queens I. on Heights, during the War of 1812. ft was in 1313 that Laura carried the warning of an im- pending American allack to the British at Beaver Dams She was given no recogni lion for her feat until 1860. When she was 85 she wrote a memorial describing her sen ice that so impressed the then Prince of Wales (King Ed- ward Vfl) that he awarded her a gift of She survived her husbajid by 27 years, dying in 1868 in Chippawa. Restoration expert Peter John Stokes of Niagara-on- the-Lake look the house apart lo discover its original dimen- sions and recreate floor plan "We had to take down a porch and balcony, and liter- ally they had raised the roof. It was a storey and a hah" and had made inlo two sto- The building restoration was done under architect James Secord, who is a de- see n d a n of (he original James' older brother. Mr. Burke-Gaffney says it was as much like the original ai possible. i "Floors were replaced with I 125-year-old pine. All the ma- terials and methods used were of the period. All the nails are hand made." He said coincidences abounded during the Ihrce- year project. They have had an unsolicited letter from a woman in the United Stales who is a descendant of Laura's niece. When her niece died. Mrs. Secord sent rose cuttings for her grave and de- scendants of the bushes still are Ihriving. They hope to be able to get cuttings to use at the house. The furnishings have been done u'ilh (he .same attention to detail by Mr. Stevens and his wile, James Secord was not a particularly successful mer- chant, and after he was wounded, the family had little mcncy. Mr. Stevens says he chose the furnishings with that in mind "I read everything I could and formed an opinion. She wanted the best and he couldn't manage it. So we fried to equate lhat." All of the furnishings are of (lie 1803-1835 period, except for one small chest. The house has been open to the public since its official opening this summer.
