Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, June LETHBRIDQE Ann Landers Supply homebaking to exotic delights i Women's Institute co-operative proves successful Dear Ann Landers: Thank you for-printing that wonderful letter from the young woman in the wheelchair I hope she gets her chance to be someone's sweetheart or wife. You missed an important opportunity, Ann. Why didn't you make it clear that just because a person is in a wheelchair doesn't mean he or she can't enjoy sex. Yes, even men and women who are paralyzed from the neck down. This is a fact that a great many people aren't aware of. It's still not too late to let them know. Please print this letter and add a word or two of your own. Who Has Been There Dear Been There: Thank you for giving me an opportunity to pass on this useful information. Of course, you are right. The medical explanation is too intricate to go into here, but it IS a fact that most wheelchair people are capable of having sexual relations. In some instances, special counseling to overcome psychological problems may be needed but physically, they can perform as well as anyone else. Dear Ann Landers: I am a 21-year-old woman who is built like a 12-year-old boy. Will you please tell me where I can get silicone injections? Please read my question carefully. I am NOT asking what you think of the idea, I am asking where I can find a doctor who will give me the injections. I'm flat as a board and hate the way I look. Bootsie Dear Boot: I hope you will not feel that I am overstepping my bounds when I tell you what the LAW thinks of silicone injections. They are considered dangerous and have been declared illegal. It seems that several women who had silicone shots developed tumors in various parts of the body and serious medical problems resulted. Silicone implants, however, can be a safe and satisfactory approach to breast enlargement. Many plastic surgeons perform this operation and you can learn who in your vicinity does it by asking your own family doctor or contacting the County Medical Society. Dear Ann Landers: I just want your readers to know that the world isn't all bad. There are still a lot of good people around. My mother was driving and we were going toward town. A car to the right of us ran a red light and hit us broadside. I was scared stiff. My mother's head hit the windshield and she had blood all over her face. I am 17 and thought I was very grown-up, but when something like that happens you get young again awfully fast. People came running to help us from every direction Someone called the police. Another person called an ambulance. Somebody brought over an ice pack and towels for Mother. The kindness from these strangers was iust beautiful. The people in the other car stopped and accepted the blame. They didn't try to lie out of it like some people would A young mother was hurt in the accident. I pray to God that she will be O.K. Please sign me Are Good In Nampa, Idaho. Dear Nam: Ot course there are a lot of wonderful people around. The trouble is they don't make, news, so we rearely hear about them. Thank you for writing. Dear Ann Landers: I have a simple question and will be as direct as I can because I need a straight answer. Here it is: In your opinion, when a boy and a girl get into heavy petting is this considered "having I hope you won't think I am cheap. I'm a 15-year-old girl who needs information. Please print your answer in the paper. My mother "accidentally" opens my mail and if she got a hold of the answer to this one, I'd die. Not Dumb, Just Inexperienced Dear N.D.: In our day (back in the Stone Age, of course) we called it "Roman hands and Russian fingers." The language may have changed somewhat in the last 40 years, but the routine is very much the same. Manual exploration is not what I would call "having sex" but if a girl allows it, she is bound to cross over the line from exploration to discovery before long The Landers Law for staying within reasonable limits is: "Four feet on the Dear Ann Landers; A while back you printed a heartbreaking letter from grandparents who were cut off completely from their only grandchild because the boy's mother (their son's ex-wife) wanted to be punitive. I hope they live in Texas. The law is now on their side. The new Family Code, Senate Bill 168, Section 14.03, Clause D, provides grandparents with legal visiting rights. For Us Dear Good: Thank you for letting me know. I happily pass the word and hope that the example of the Texas legislature will be followed by all the other 49. LONDON (CP) Britain's Women's Institute movement is involved in a business venture that is a total success, both commercially and from a customer's standpoint. The organization's Co- operative Markets which now number about 250 offer consumers foodstuffs ranging from home-baked goods and kitchen essentials to the exotic culinary delights such as aubergines, courgettes and celeriac. Producers of these foods carry home 90 per cent of the takings since the WI markets operate at a low overhead. Operating costs are kept to a. minimum and none of the proceeds go to middlemen. Basically, the success of the market lies in the proprietors .of the market stalls themselves. These are persons who grow or make their wares on their own but who might not otherwise be able to distribute them to the public. Because these proprietors are not hard-nosed businessmen, they know exactly what kind of product and service appeals to their customers. The co-operative market "concept started in 1932 to help unemployed persons and former military personnel find outlets for the surplus produce from their gardens and small holdings. Today the WI markets help relative newcomers to the shopping arena such as young mothers who would like to earn money but whose home commitments will not allow them to take steady employment. scheme is not intended to be a commercial says Claire Balmer, market adviser to the National Federation of Women's Institutes. "Turnover is not the only yardstick for us. We're pleased because we're filling a real need." Miss Balmer said that often young women hesitantly approach stallholders for advice on domestic matters how to cook a chicken or how to preserve garden produce, for example. Such young women may never have thought of joining their local WI chapter, she said, where they can attend classes to learn domestic and other useful skills. In some localities, one-day craft schools help propagate traditional crafts such as Durham quilting, Dorset featherstitch, toymaking, patchwork and macrame. ______ _______ _ _ Customers look over baked goods and Kitchen essentials at WI market. I Exercise, not always diet, I key to keeping weight down GENEVA (Reuter) You don't need to diet to keep your weight take some regular exercise, says a World Health Organization expert. Thirty minutes of exercise by an average adult will use up all the calories contained in a slice of apple pie topped by a scoop of ice cream. You can eat your cake and still not have it always with you if you walk, swim or play games to burn up the excess calories. Writing in the W.H.O. magazine World Health, American nutrition expert Jean Mayer of the Harvard School of Public Health said obesity appeared to be mainly a disease of civilization. Mechanization of work and of transport have cut down physical exercise. Many people, particularly in developed countries, engage in little physical activity but their appetite does not decrease proportionately. So the excess calories accumulate as fat. Overweight people have only two choices, take more exercise or go through life feeling hungry. Prof. Mayer said it is a fallacy to think that an increase in physical activity is automatically followed by an increase in appetite, making exercise self-defeating as a weight- control measure. Recent studies had shown that the mechanism which regulates appetite, to relate the intake of calories to their' expenditure, does not operate if a person is inactive to begin with. Below a certain limit, a decrease in activity is not accompanied by a de- crease in appetite. "Under-exercising rather than overeating as such may well be the most important cause of the prevalence of overweight she said. Experiments in the United States with white rats showed that a group of rats which exercised daily on a treadmill ate no more than a group which remained in cages. Nevertheless the sedentary animals slowly accumulated more weight. A third group of rats kept' without movement in small tunnel-like cages became extremely fat. Another study of overweight high-school girls .showed that most of 'them ate no more than normal-weight girls but- spent more time in televisionwatching or other sitting activities at the expense of walking and x active sports. When playing games, x- obese children were less active than their thinner classmates. Films showed that fat youngsters playing volleyball were immobile 80 to 90 per cent of the time, compared with 50 per cent for the others. xj In the swimming pool, obese youngsters tended to x float, sit or stand in the wa- x ter, using up only about one f- calorie per minute x compared with thinner youngsters who expended five or more. Research is progressing -x to find out whether people are fat because they are 5 inactive or inactive because they are fat. ji Effectiveness of pre-marital advice A.N.A.F.

And he's about to test that thesis scientifically, with the help of a grant from the Physicians' Services In- corporated (PSI) foundation. PSI has provided the funding to find out whether, as Mr. Bader believes, couples given premarital education fare better in marriage than those who have no advance preparation. "I've always felt pre- marital counselling helped keep marriages says Mr. Bader. "There has never been any evidence to prove it because no studies have been done in this area. The research project, which will last for at least two years, involves co-operation between medical doctors, a social agency and a variety of churches. Especially for Dad!

"Couples who have a fore- knowledge of what their life together may be like will have more chance of dealing successfully with any problems that may he adds. The project begins soon when an experimental group of 100 couples will be given pre-marital education. A control group of another 100 couples will not. Family doctors will be trained as project leaders and will counsel groups of six couples each with the help of videotaped programs A medi- cal resident will also help at each 'session, preparing him or her for future familv practice. After the couples have been married six months, they will participate in more group ses- sions with the same leaders, and after 18 months of mar- riage, they will have a final in- terview.
