Wig Bar, Main Floor Replica of tavern is family project By ELAINE CAREY London Free Press ARVA, Ont. (CP) -Bill and Jane Langdon are living in a home they designed themselves. Its exterior is a replica of an 18th-century tavern. Mrs. Langdon said: "We started with the barn, and when that turned out all right, we thought, OK, we'll do the house too." The Langdons had a house full of Canadiana furniture they had collected and refinished over seven years, and they de- cided they would build a colo- nial style "new-old" home around it. Dr. Langdon, a London al- lergy specialist, then spent two years working on an interior plan. But it wasn't until a trip to Williamsburg, Va., that they found the exterior they wanted. It was the Raleigh Tavern, built sometime before 1742. Mrs. Langdon said: "We took the tour of the building and Bill had his tape measure out the whole time measuring every- thing. "The guide kept telling him to move along. So we had to go back at night after the tours and I sat in the car while Bill j paced up and down measuring i the clapboard, the dormers, i windows and doors." Once the plans were made, they looked for a builder able to find the materials and skilled craftsmen to build the house. The builder, Fred Fones, made a trip to Williamsburg to see the house. INTERIOR IN KEEPING Mrs. Langdon planned the in- terior decorating around Wil- liamsburg papers and paints ex- cept that their three daughters were allowed to plan their own rooms. It took from September, 1971, to May, 1972, to complete the home. Dr. Langdon has made one more trip to Williamsburg to learn how to build a brick side- walk because he was unable to find anyone who knew how. Now that their dream home is almost complete, Mrs. Langdon admits they had their doubts along the way. "It's so hard to visualize what it's all going to look like. j "This is so much better than I Ann Landers ever thought it would be from the drawings."

I am 14 and in the 9th grade. Your book. "Since You Ask Me." is in our school library and I just read it. 1 saw on page 102. It was a letter from a mother who wrote, "I wish our 14- year-old daughter would walk out of the house and never come back. She was a colicky, mean kid from the minute we brought her home from the hospital. When she was three months old she be- gan to look like my husband's sister who was the town tramp." Then the mother went on tn tell about all the terrible things her daughter had done and she ended her ktter by saying, ;'Please tell us what lo'do with this girl before she gets her picture in the paper and disgraces us." Mom doesn't give a damn about me and I've known it ever since I was a little kid. Dad works all the time and is like a stranger. I have a sis- ter who is 16 and very pretty. I am plain looking. Mom keeps talking about how dif- DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have this dear friend (I'll call her Mabel) who has a heart of gold but her house- keeping makes me sick. When I go there for a cup of cofrze and a piece of cake I have trouble swallowing any- thing because Mabel never uses soap or hot water on her dishes or silverware. She rinses everything under the cold water faucet and dries them with a dirty dishtowel. IL's enough to kill a parson's appetite for a week. Yesterday was ths last straw. When I went to the kitchen to get the coffee pot, there was her big Maltese cat sleeping in the sink. I nearly fainted. Our cups, saucers and spoons were on Time of their lives Mark one down for police public relations, as an unsuspecting Ottawa patrolman takes time out from regular duties to give three young girls a bit of fun with an impromptu roller coaster ride in an. empty schoolyard. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just returned from the fu- neral of a dear friend. The man who died had an adopted 12 year old son. Shortly after the adoption his wife became pregnant and they were blessed with anoth- er boy. I was standing near the casket speaking with the two boys when a woman up and asked, "Which one of you is the REAL son and which is I couldn't believe my ears. Please tell me how people can be so cniel and dumb. Thanks for an answer, Ann. I am Dumbfounded And Flabbergasted DEAR D AND F: People can be extremely cruel and incredibly dum'i. But most of all they can thoughtless, especially at funerals, per- haps because they feel the need to say something. When the atmosphere is tense they often say the wrong thing. I don't believe the woman meant to be unkind but dumb she is. ferent we loo k. She keeps saying, "It's hard to believe they have the same mother and I have a nine year old brother and when Mom isn't talking about my beautiful sister, she is bragging on this smart kid who is sure to be President of the United States at least. I know there is nothing you can do to help me, so maybe the best thing you can do is to tell me why I wrote this letter when I know very well I Born Loser DEAR FRIEND: I refuse to call you a loser, because the ball game is far from finished. You are only 14 and this is only the second inn- ing. You wrote because you were feeling alone and de- pressed and wanted tc un- load on somebody. I'm glad you chose im. I suggest that you do some more unloading on a school counsellor. That's what they are there for. You'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel after you've verbalized your anxieties.

Help me, please, j Her, But DEAR LOVE: No point in saying anything- Mabel has probably been keeping house like this for years and you aren't going to change it. Teil her in advance that you'd prefer that she not serve any- thing because you are trying to cut down on caloriss and it would be a help if she didn't tempt you. J-amily Service key word at rehab workshop By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor The trim, one-storey build- ing facing Centre Village Mall has a ramp as well as steps leading up to the front door. The printed sign on the cement block facing reads Rehabilitation Workshop. In the reception area, a glass cabinet displays sam- ples of the work done "out in a simulated work- shop "where the operation is on an industrial ac- cording to Dave Stockham, executive director of the Re- habilitation Society of Leth- bridge. "No handicapped work goes cut this he said em- phatically. "People expect a service, and service they get." One contractor put It this way: "if you can't deliver, we'll take it somewhere else." Mr. Stockham explained that contractors deliver ma- terials to the centre, and the workshop supplies the man- power. "Prebuilt Industries bring rolls of wire, and our people manufacture it into electrical harnesses for trailers. "GTE Automatic Electric brings parts of telephone receiver caps, and we put in gaskets. We've done this he said proudly. 'Tor General Farm Sup- plies, we assemble self-level- lers and irrigation heads. "And July the distillery will bring in a machine to put labels on bottles. After we put the labels on. we'll put raffia covers on the bottles." Button business Independently, the work- shop manufactures and sells name plates, show ribbons and rosettes. "We just got in a button machine a little over a I month ago, said Mr. Stock- ham. "We've done but- tons, and have orders this year for "We'll be doing all the Win- I ter Games and all the Buck- a-cup buttons for the whole province. i "At one time, when it first started." he said, "this was i just a physically handicapped shop. Now it is multi-handi- capped: physical, mental, so- cial, cultural and emotional. "These people do viable work in the community. They have self-respect and self- esteem." Thirty people are employ- ed in the shop, which pro- vides "sheltered conditions for some, and for others, a chance to get back into the work flow without pressure." Ages range from 16 years to "a man of 72 who is doing a great job." Pay inadequate Employees enjoy most in- dustrial benefits including coffee breaks, sick pay and annual vacations. The month- ly paycheques are minimal, as most of the workers are On welfare or social assis- tance. Mr. Stockham said he hopes eventually this situation will change for the better. "Briefs have been put in regarding wages. As yet, we've had no action" from the government, he said. "It's nice to provide money for staff, facilities and equip- ment, but now they should be doing something for the work- ers. "There is as much normali- zation in the work situation as he pointed out. "Hopefully, many will even- tually be employed in compe- titive jobs. Those who can't will still be sheltered." The present workshop lacks space, storage facilities and electric outlets, Mr. Stock- ham explained. "We're in the process of building a new plant in the industrial area. "A lot of the stuff we're doing by hand. In our new facility, we'll have automatic equipment air compress- ors, air screwdrivers and im- pact tools as much as pos- sible. Modern equipment and modern methods." The operation Is financed through various sources, in- cluding profits from the workshop, the annual fall chocolate drive, donations from clubs and bequests. This year, the provincial gov- ernment provided a operational grant.
