Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta
Junt 9, 1973 THI UTHIMDOT HWA1D vng Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: You must be kidding. Your advice to "Father Nose Best" could have been a lot better. I have a large nose with a definite hook in it, and the darned thing is beautiful. I can smell with, blow it, scratch it and twitch it when I want to amuse my wife. I can turn it up when I want to show disdain. I can turn it down when I want to ap- pear dejected. I can look down it when I feel the need to ap- pear superior. (Actually, on those occasions I feel infer- ior.) My nose is the first thing people see, and it is, I am sure, a cause for wonder- ment. Sometimes they even laugh. Let them! I don't care! God made me in His image, and I have no com- plaints. If that teen-age boy wants to have his nose altered for reasons of vanity I say he should go ahead and do it But, if he is having social problems and blaming it on his nose, plastic surgery be a waste of money. Real folks don't care about the length, breadth or shape of a nose. V7e all know peo- ple who are impressed with good looks and will put up with anything if a gal is gor- geous or a guy is handsome. These flakes aren't worth bothering with, much less having an operation for. So tell it like it is, Ann. An- other Nose Best DEAR A.N.B.: I try to, but sometimes a reader comes along and does it a lot bet- ter. Like now. And I thank you, Cyrano. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a 42-year-old career wo- man not a giddy teen-ager or a desperate widow, so please keep this in mind when you answer. The man I ant dating ask- ed me what I wanted for my birthday. I said, "I'd like to think about it." Then he add- ed, "Let's put a ceiling on it ?50." I was stunned. Now I wonder if he thinks I'm a gold-digger, or if he s had some bad experiences with acquisitive females. (Or can it be that he is just plain What's your best guesstimate, Ann? No Shrewdy In Shreveport DEAR S.I.S.: He sounds like a practical, hard-nosed businessman who has learn- ed that it's better to prevent a problem than let it happen and then try to fix it. His approach might be somewhat unromantic, but it's straight and honorable and I see noth- ing to criticize. DEAR ANN LANDERS: That letter signed "102-Per- Cent Mom" made me 102 per cent sick. What right have parents to get mad when then- children ire not included in every in- vitation? A bride has the privilege of deciding whether or not she wants to have kids at her wedding. I've had first-hand exper- ience with some of those ht- itle terrors, described by their parents as "full of pep and "normally active." And I've seen young children ruin a ceremony and dis- mantle a buffet table in three minutes flat. They slide and fall on the dance floor, yell and fight, and pester the mu- sicians. Nothing makes people so mad as when you criticize their children, so you'll prob- ably get a lot of flak from readers who think you're a mean old lady. But I had to write and say I'm on your side, Annie -Let 'Em Stay Home DEAR LET 'EM: You'd be surprised at how many par- ents are on OUR side, and wrote to say so. Thanks for the assist. CONFIDENTIAL TO WINDS AT NORTHWEST- ERN: Never mind about HIM I'm interested in YOU. Please tell me how a euy who can't spell "grate- full and puts a "d" in "con- gratulations" and two "e's' in judgment got into North- western. As for your "prob- it sounds like that of a Yale guy who moved to Evanston. ______ Dr. J. L. Ruit Janet teslie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. R.

Phone 328-9886 Jessie Snow heads volunteers By MAUREEN JAMEISON Family Editor Call her Ms. or even Mrs. She's secure enough so it really doesn't matter, explains Jessie Snow, recently-appoint- ed executive director of the Canadian Mental Health Asso- ciation, south Alberta region. Petite Ms. Snow, with her friendly grin, perceptive eyes and the chic patch of silver peeping out of her dark hair, will supervise the operations of some 50 to 60 volunteer work- ers. The new CMHA executive re- ceived both her BA and B.Ed from the University of Leth- bridge and was president of the student council in 1972, her final year. Yfihile attending university she was a founding member of the senate, on the board of governors and appointed to the committee of the co-ordinating council of the three Alberta universities. "I just must be a she grins. "I'm a member of the recently-formed steering committee of the Options for Women group. Reticent about her family life, she would only say "I don't want to be nut in a mother role, as I speak out in favor of abortion. But I've seven chil- dren and I'm really quite fond of them. "I guess you could say that mostly I'm very concerned about anything that affects peo- ple and their lives.

The demonstration, staged by the Ontario Anti-Poverty Or- ganization, criticized Ontario government policy towards impoverished people.____________________________ JESSIE SNOW Executive director haps I always have been in- ;erested in working hi youth groups since I became aware of the emotional involvement required in making choices in a society that expects young people to be ma- ture and involved in decision- making" for which they have little background. Mrs. Show considers herself "a coordinator of programs such as the volunteer life pro- gram and social action pro- gram." She will also "be work- ing with the board and board chairman within the financial restrictions to set up work- shops, and help board members with these workshops." She hopes to promote "the team spirit with the board and resource people in the com- munity and the office staff, so all can work together where necessary. "One of the mam functions of the she points out, "is to direct people who do need help. If there is, say, a lonely woman, alone at home looking after her children, we may find a group for her to join, to prevent mental illness, ness. "I would really very much like to see more organization done in rural communities such as the branches that exist in Taber, Raymond and Clares- holm." Most of the work done in these affiliated rural groups, she explains "is of an educa- tional nature, to make people really aware of the mental bealth programs. "There is a lot of untapped resources in rural communi- she stressed. "They aiuld be used to promote mental health objectives throughout the region." Having been an active vol- unteer herself, Ms. Snow says I think I can understand the volunteer's role in a volunteer organization, and would hope I can organize our human re- sources so they can be used most profitably." WeeWhimsv Centre proposed for women's rights Specific areas of concern to j women in the Lethbridge area were discussed at a recent or- ganizational meeting of a wo- men's centre. The proposed centre will func- tion as an informational outlet, providing details on career, employment, and counselling opportunities available for wo- men in Lethbridge. It was decided that legal rights, human rights and day care would be priorities, with other areas to include welfare rights, consumer rights, edu- cational programs and various discussion groups. The centre expects to receive a portion of its operational funding from the government. It was also decided that ob- jectives for the centre should be set in the near future in order to quality for such a grant. Discussion during the second meeting the women's centre touched on possible aims which the centre should include as concern areas. The next public meeting will be held Thursday at 8 p.m. at 542 7 St. S. and all interested women are asked to attend. Further information may be obtained by contacting R. Moir at 327-4235.
