Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I know you'll never print this be- cause it's a slam against your city, Chicago, but here it is anyway. We moved here from folks treat each1 other with consideration. Chicagoans have the lousiest man- ners in the world. For example on tlie buses, people who don't have seats think nothing of askin" a stranger who is seated to hold their packages, purses and what have you. I've gotten spots on my coat from leaky lunch bags and a rip in my sweater from a child's toy. This morning was the last a woman asked me to hold her baby. You can guess what happened. I handed her back the sopping wet child all she could say was, "Oh, my If you have any explanation for such1 slobbish behavior on the part of your fellow citizens, I'd like to hear Man From Montana. DEAR IRATE I thought until I read your signa- ture that you were a woman! I can offer no defense for people with such gall that they would ask strangers to hold their lunches and parcels. But that last incident is another ball of wax, my friend. A man who would remain seated on a hits and let a woman stand with a baby in her arms deserves whatever he gets. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Until six weeks ago I was going with a very interesting guy. A buddy of his came to town and asked me to get him a date. So I fixed him up with my best friend. The four of us went out together. After that eve- ning my very interesting guy never called me again. He has been seeing my "friend" almost every night. I tried to act as if I didn't care, but I eared plenty. Not because I lost him to her, but because she thought so little of our friendship that she accepted a date with him when she knew he was mine. Finally I got fed up pretending. I lost my cool and told her exactly how I felt. She was dumbfounded as if she had no idea I was hurt. Am I justified in my feelings that she betrayed me? Please comment. Kansas City Kitty. DEAR KITTY: The guy you refer to as "yours" obviously was not. You didn't lose him. You never had him. A woman rarely loses a man to someone else. He first loses his interest in someone else comes along. Bury the hatchet and pass the peace pipe. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have a friend who is a perfect gentleman, but he has an oddball habit which baffles me. He extends his left hand instead of his right when greeting friends. At first I thought his hand might be crippled by arthritis, or an accident, but I've watched him carefully and he uses his right hand normally. Last night I decided to nsk him why he prefers to shake left-handed. He replied, "It's a Scout custom." I didn't want to show my ignorance. What is he talking about? Not Smart. DEAR NOT: In the manual of English Scouting, "Tender- foot Queen it says, "When a famous Ashanti chief sur- rendered to Lord Baden Powell, the latter extended his right hand as a token of friendship. The chief insisted on shaking with the left hand, explaining that the bravest of the brave shake hands with the left hand, since, in order to do so, he must throw away his greatest shield." Scouts shake hands with the left hand as proof of good faith, and true friendship. "The Bride's Ann Landers' booklet, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about weddings.

Monday, Juno 15, 1970 THE tETHBBIDGE HERALD 15 Quebec Girls Learn English By Housekeeping In Ontario TORONTO (CP) For the third summer in a row, Hich- ard Poritz is bringing teen- age girls from Quebec to work as mother's helpers in Ontario where the girls can learn English. Mr. Poritz is director of Mothers' Summer Helpers, an employment agency that places Quebec girls, 1C and older, in Ontario homes dur- ing the months of July and August. Under the scheme, the fam- ily employing the girl are charged a percentage of the amaunt of money they are willing to pay her as weekly wages. This fee ranges from ?5 to a week. "For Mr. Poritz said, "if they offer a week, tile girl receives and we receive 55." Under the Ontario Employ- ment Act, said H. B. Francis, of the employment standards branch of tile provincial de- partment of labor, "domestics are not covered either for minimum wages or for num- ber of hours worked." The mother's helper knows beforehand, said Mr. Poritz, that her duties usually include dishes, cooking, laundry, bed- making, cleaning and super- vising children. Girls employed by the agency must, submit a teach- er's recommendation, paren- tal consent, medical certifi- cates showing they are fit for work, and a 200-word auto- biography. After a screening interview in Quebec City, they come to Toronto, paying their own way. "We do arrange for them to corne in a said Mr. Poritz, "so they can get a dis- count from CN." An official with the Toronto branch of Canada Manpower, tlie employment agency of the federal government, said its policy is to discourage the niovement of people under 18 years of age from one prov- ince to another and even within their own province. The girls are brought from Quebec, Mr. Poritz said, be- cause "girls in this area gen- erally won't accept the sala- ries." Accountants, doctors, law- yers and dentists, lie said, do most of the hiring. The major- ity of girls arc placed in two- children families. Few are placed in homes with more than three children. "The placement made is al- ways pending acceptance by the he said. "She has the final say." ENCOURAGED TO STAY The girl is encouraged to stay in the program by an "incentive bonus." "They are given a post- dated cheque for above and beyond their salary. If they leave before eight weeks they forfeit that." Major complaints Mr. Por- itz has encountered from the employers are lack of com- mon sense in a girl or her lack of industry. The most common com- plaint from the girls, he said, is overwork. "In some cases, New Instructional System For Heart Patient Care REGINA (CP) Saskatche- van nurses have a new multi- nedia instructional system to lelp them learn emergency re- uscitalion techniques to use in cases of cardiac arrest. Madge McKillop, president of he Saskatchewan Registered Curses' Association, which pur- hased the unit, said the ystem will be available to ho itals and schools and nurse groups throughout the provinc t is believed to be the first ts kind to be used in Canada.

It re- duces the cost of training and makes it unnecessary for teach- ers to repeat the same material over and over. Physicians and instructors1 can use their time more produc- tively in demonstrations and bedside teaching. The new aid was first used at an association .seminar in April in Saskatoon and will be used at a similar seminar in Regina, Miss McKillop said. After that it will be made available for loan throughout the province. Birth Control Not Practiced Often In India NEW DELHI (Reuters) Al- though most Indians know about birth control, only a fraction ac- tually'practise family planning the population is going up by a month. The main obstacle, authorities say, is the age-old idea that a ,arge family is a form of insur- ance for the parents.
