Monday, June 29, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have been married eight years. We both want a family but 1 can't seem to get pregnant. He has been checked and the problem is mine, not his. Three doctors have told me the trouble is "psychological" and not organic. They have suggested adop- tion and all three doctors have said, "After you adopt a child you will probably have your own." The problem is my husband's big mouth. We have been interviewed by representatives of two adoption agencies. When they ask him about church attendance he says, Reli- gion is a lot of garbage. Children should be raised to depend on themselves, not a phony crutch." I know we will never get a child if he doesn't stop that kind of talk. I've begged him to just keep quiet about this subject but he says, "I'm no hypocrite." What can I do? Calif. DEAR RED: You'd better start to contact adoption agen- cies which are not church-affiliated if you're sure he wants a child. I'm not so sure he does. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am having a disagreement with my daughter-in-law. Please settle it. We both read your column and agree that you would be an objective moderator. My 11-year-old grandson is a very bright lad. He enjoys writing letters to Gram and Cramps. Some of the letters are essays expressing his ideas on a variety of subjects. He hands his letter to his mother in an unsealed envelope. She then stamps it and mails it to me. Unbeknownst to the boy, h' mother goes over the letter and corrects his mistakes grammar and spelling. I do not object to the mistakes. In fact I find th. delightful. An 11-year-old boy is not expected to write perfc letters. I asked my daughter-in-law to please leave his lettei alone. She says he doesn't know about the corrections ai.< she wank to make them more "readable." I suspect she ha a compulsion about mistakes because she was an English teacher. What is your opinion, Ann? Wash. DEAR LAKE: Of course she has a compulsion! The best solution would be for the boy to have his own stamps and mail the letters himself. Send him a sheet for the Fourth of July sort of a Declaration of Independence gift. r VUl.

"What's was a usual comment followed by someone saying, "it looks like play money." Most of the merchants had heard about the new bill but were caught by surprise when they actually saw it. The bill with its multitude of colors on an olive green back- ground drew many comments isuch as: "it's real "looks like a Christmas card." i "looks like it came from some- where over the "might be a coupon from a soap "I must be old- fashioned." A few of the clerks question- ed, asked if it were counter- feit but one said, "I'm easy to get along with because as long as I had enough, I would love them all." Another by-stander agreed. "As long as it spends the same, I don't care what it looks like." A man caught off guard when first seeing it said, "After so many years of conservative colored bills, now these psyche- delic ones are shocking." "I don't know what our Ca- i nadian money is coming said an annoyed clerk. "First of all the government changes the coins so the customers can't tell them apart and now this. j What The new bills will be fol- lowed over a period of time by new notes of other denomina- tions. They will all have a colorful resemblance to the J20 note but will maintain the same denominational base color as the 1954 series. The picture of Queen Eliza- beth which will only appear on the and notes is en- graved from a contemporary photograph. The absence of her crown in this picture caused dismay in many of those ques- tioned. "She just doesn't seem like our monarch without her said a disappointed woman. The denomination will have a picture of Sir Wilfred Laurier, note will feature Sir John A. Macdonald, and bills William Lyon Mac- kenzie King and Sir Robert Borden respectively. Although a few people ob- jected to (he absence of the Queen on these bills, many thought it was about time more Canadians were honored in our currency. The general consensus seem- ed to be that the new bill was "nice" even though most felt it would take some getting used to. The new notes are now available in Lethbridge banks and have been distributed upon request at one per customer. The old notes will continue to circulate in the normal way until they are judged unfit for 'further use.
