Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Big Winner Harassed For Handouts TORONTO (CP) Sudden riches don't always bring hap- piness, says a 67-year-old Tor- onto woman who won in the Irish hospitals sweep- stake last year. The woman, who did not want her name used, said that alter she won she was harassed by salesmen, many persons who wanted a handout and friends who expected gifts. She said she received so many telephone calls from per- sons who wanted money that she had to have her telephone disconnected. But the requests for money did not stop. She received letters "from total strangers" which made her "sick and tired of the whole thing." Despite the windfall, she said, life did not change except that her husband took an early retirement from his job. Winning the money, she said, made her "learn a lot about people." But most persons who have won in the sweepstake do not share the bitterness of that woman.

Ann Landers Special Spot For Child Needed In Every Home DEAR ANN LANDERS: I live in Monterey and like Pericles of old, I must defend my city when it is attacked from within. I refer to the woman who signed her letter, "It Happened in Monterey." A more appropriate signature would have been, "It DIDN'T Happen In Monterey." She described her marriage as "very without sex." She and her husband enjoy gin rummy and1 TV. Lest your readers think everyone in Monterey lives like that, let me assure .you that Monterey is the Peyton Place of Love Mecca of the Universe. A personal poll of our country club crowd revealed 8 out of 10 couples don't own a deck of cards and watch little or no TV. The weather is glorious and conducive to love making, both indoors and out. So, please, Ann, print the truth about Monterey and help restore its good Who Wants Equal Time DEAR EROS: Here's your equal time and now a word1 from your sponsor: the views represented in the above letter are not necessarily those of your newspaper, the Monterey Chamber of Commerce or this columnist. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a 17-year-old boy who is normal in every still I'm a freak. My problem is that I am nearly seven feet tall and still growing. My mother is 6'4" and my Dad is When the three us go anywhere you'd think the circus was in town. Peo- ple gawk and make rude remarks. I sometimes wonder if they think we are blind and deaf. A normal person can't imagine what it's like to be turned down by driver education because of being too large for the training car. I wonder how they would like it if their friends' parents were afraid te let them- sit down in the living room for fear of breaking the furniture. A few months ago I started to play hockey on our school team. I was sitting on the bench and a cute chick came over. When I stood up, she gasped "Oh no" This is the story of my life. What's the Everest DEAR M. E.: Walk tall, fella. Somewhere there's a lovely tall, tall female who shares your problem. She'll love every inch of you. Confidental to Were We Not necessarily. In fact, it might have been a compliment. "Lace Curtain Irish" are people of Irish descent who have fruit in the house when nobody is sick. LETHBRIDGE FISH GAME ASSN.

UNDER 16 By GLENNIS ZILM EDMONTON (CP) Chil- dren should have a special place designed for them in the home, says Donna Bagdan, a home design consultant with the Alberta government. "Most rooms in the house are designed for adult living habits. Children deserve a spot of their own, even if it is only a shared bedroom or playroom." Mrs. Bagdan, who studied interior design at the Univer- sity of Manitoba, said the chil- dren's area need not be large or expensively decorated. "In fact, a room can grow with a child from nursery to about age 12." For example, a desk made a good change table in a nurs- ery, a fort for toddlers and a work area for school-age chil- dren. "Or a desk can be built for small children and the surface moved up on adjustable brackets as the child grows." SPACE MAKES ROOM If a family is building a home, the bedroom should be small for the children and the space saved should go to mak- ing a room just off the kitchen that could be used as a play- room. And if the room was going to have windows, they should be low ones so that a child could see outside. In building a room a family should work from a plan that they can add to. The basic plan should last for eight to JO years. In the beginning a room may only be painted and a light fixture installed. A rug could be added as children get older. Mrs. Bagdan said nurseries should provide a sense of cleanliness and freshness. She _f f n ot.oca.1 Nor Alon Family Group meets tonight at 8 at 418 13 St. N.

"A touch of aqua or blue or green into white paint avoids the unrestful glare of a pure- white room. You might want to use light yellows or pinks instead, but the blue-greens are more restful and easier to work with for other room col- ors." She said toddlers and young .children Uke bright colors. "Think of the colors in a toy what is appeal- ing to a child." The mother of a four-year- old son, Mrs. Bagdan says children's furniture designs are generally poor. "If you are capable of mak- ing units yourself, I would suggest you. look through Eu- r o p e a n design magazines. They have some excellent ideas, such as a crib that con- verts to a two-seat sofa later." Furniture should be versa- tile and easy to maintain. And you should look for rounded corners which help prevent bumps and cuts if a child falls on them. "You ought to think of the furniture as the kind the child can play with, play on, store in and store on." own Guests from out-of-town han- ring Mr. and Mrs. P. D.

"The people are friendly up Shorter Skirts For Women In U.S. Army WASHINGTON (AP) The head of United States Air Force women has decreed that its women members "with the configuration to jus- tify it" may wear skirts two inches above the knee. Col. Jeanne Holm, director of the Women of the Air Force, has drafted an order' allowing shorter uniform skirts "in keeping with the requirements of good taste and the dictates of fashion, with due regard for the dig- nity of the uniform of the United States Air Force and the individual's own configur- ation." Normally, Col. Holm said, skirts should be right around the top of the knee or not more than an inch above. But- her new order states: "Ladies rath the configura- tion to justify it may be au- thorized to wear skirts no more than two inches above the knee provided the skirts hang freely and are not exces- sively tight." Those aren't the only re- strictions. "Under no circumstances will underwear show either while standing, stooping, or the colonel said. The new directive allowing air force women to catch up with the shorter skirts worn by their civilian sisters may be too late observers of women's fashions are predict- ing hems will go down to mid-calf this fall. in she said, and sh echoed her two girl friends sentiments when they said they would like to live in Canada. She wears the traditiona dress of the Cheyenne tribe o Oklahoma, with the buckskin dress and accessories symboliz ing the resourcefulness of thi Cheyennes. The lone Eagle feather she wears in her head band, whei wearing her buckskin dress symbolizes an honor bestowec on her by her paternal grand father, Herman Haury, Ara paho Chief. "Education is very importan to me now and I think it is very important for all the young peo pie to get education, whether i is academic or sho said. "It is also very important for the youth, especially the native youth, to become involved in many things. This is one way to make their weight felt without becoming involved physically with demonstrations when demonstration is not called for. "I am very proud to be an Indian and have great faith in the Indian people to make their mm way in the world." Miss Haury was in Lethbridge last November to take part in the All-Indian Rodeo and claims the people in southern Alberta are "juk great."
