Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTHBR1DGE HERALD Saturday, Juno 10, 1972 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read Hie letter from "Hitler's Buddy" who works in a hospital emergency room and advocates giving anyone who attempts suicide "a double dose of whatever ho took that brought him there." That letter preyed on my mind all day. I will not sleep tonight if I don't answer it. For someone who works in a hospital emergency room, "Buddy" displays appalling ignorance. He should have learn- ed by this time that most people who attempt suicide don't really want to die. Any reasonably intelligent person who wants to kill himself can find a foolproof way to do it. A suicide attempt is the last, desperate cry for help from one who has heen ignored too long. Fortunately, when. I attempted suicide, I was taken to a hospital emergency room staffed with wonderful, understand- ing people. They put me on the right track and helped me get the guidance I needed. I am now coping with what I thought were insurmountable problems. I now work at a different job in a different state. I am not completely satisfied with my life but I know I can handle it, and I'm getting stronger oil the time. If "Buddy" had been in the Emergency Room when I was brought in I'm sure my fears and feelings of inadequacy would have been reinforced. I would have succeeded in killing myself the next time. Been There DEAR BEEN THERE: I've received hundreds of letters from readers who said the same thing but you said it best. Thanks for writing, and good luck lo you, dear. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What do you tliink of the current trend of rewarding youngsters for being honest? When I was growing up we were taught that honesty was expected of us. It wasn't considered extraordinary behavior. I read a story in the Denver Post recently about four boys, ages 12 and 13, who found a tin box containing They turned the box over to the police and were given each. Apparently some mothers' club decided the boys should have more of a fuss made over them, so they put OD a benefit show to raise "more reward think this is nonsense. It distorts the basic concept of integrity. I believe kids should be taught that virtue is its own reward. What's your opinion of the benefit and the rest of the foolishness? Old School DEAR 0. S.: I have no comment on the benefit, but I see nothing wrong with rewarding young people for doing tie right thing. A useful lesson to learn early is that poor behavior usually leads to disaster and good behavior leads to reward. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband is hooked on The Supermarket Syndrome. He sits for hours and reads the food ads. Then he cuts out all the coupons and makes a road map indicating where he will go and how much he will spend. Crazy? You bet. He buys only "specials." Right now our storeroom is jammed with 24 cent tomatoes and 19 cent beans. When we go shopping together it's murder. I can stand on my head and if the item I want isn't on sale, he won't buy it. When there's a special on meat he tries to corner the market. Our freezer can't hold another lamb shank. The fact that nobody in the family likes lamb doesn't mean a thing to him. What he saves on groceries he spends on gasoline, but he doesn't see this. Yesterday he drove 19 miles to save 11 cents on a broom. He bought four brooms and figured he had saved 44 cents. When I told him the broom we have is like new, and that I rarely use it because I mostly vacuum and use a damp mop, he accused me of trying to spoil his fun. What can I do with a man like that? We've been married 37 Bargain Hunter DEAR MRS. HUNTER: Bargain-shopping Is a darn good hobby these days but your character is hipped on pinch- ing pennies and it sounds as if this is lus principal source of kicks. Along with the lamb shanks in his freezer, the guy's got some hornets in his helmet. The game he plays is nutty but it's relatively harmless. Forget it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am very much In love with my first cousin and our families are against our marriage. They keep telling us we cannot be married because it is against the law. They seem to have the idea that children hom of such marriages are not normal. Is there any scientific evid- ence to support this statement? With Fairy Tales DEAR B.W.F.T.: The scientific facts are as follows: In families where there is epilepsy, hemophilia or other diseases and conditions in which predisposition might be hereditary, cousins should not marry (unless they agree to remain child- Some states DO permit first cousins to if both people are healthy there is no reason why they shouldn't. -de Jourdan, photo MR.
