Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta L i Ann Landers DEAB ANN LANDERS: My husband's brother and his wife came to visit the in-laws who live 30 miles from here. We drove back and forth [our times the first weekend be- cause they weren't up to com- ing to our place. On Sunday, as we were leaving, my sister-in-law an- nounced that she was driving over to my house "tomorrow" to do her laundry. I was flabbergasted. Sure enough, she showed up after I had left for work. My husband had taken' the day off to bike-ride wiUi his brother, so he let her in and Instructed her on how to use the washer- drycr. He said she seemed to understand. Unfortunate- ly she flooded the washer cents in coin and a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope with your request to Landers Reader Mail, Chicago Sun-Times, 401 North Wabash Ave., Chicago, III. Foster child returned to natural mother By JUDE TURIC TT really Is a wonder that my sis and I were ever allowed to have pets. Especially after she was caught out by the chicken coop happily squishing baby chicks out of this life and oit to the happy pecking grounds. She believed they were fall- ing asleep after being warm- ed up in her chubby two- year-old hands. But by the time we had become old enough to take a safe interest in pets, we were also fortunate enough to have a stray come our way. She was a mangy, oMick- ed tiling, with a scratchy meow but beguiling manner. A couple of days of being carried 'round the house and fed peanut butter sandwiches perked her up. That spring she began to produce kittens. The only one we ever kept was an extra-big torn. We named him Micki and watch- ed him grow into an over- sized critter who insisted on beating up every cat for miles around. He was blessed once by a visiting priest and eventual- ly grew to be a cat-type Methusela. Before his time was up, he neatly helped put away a nice yellow duck (live) we had won at the fair. TORONTO (CP) The On- tario Supreme Court has ruled that a three-year-old girl be taken from her foster parents and given to her natural mother who has not seen her since in- fancy. Mr. Justice W. A. Donohue awarded custody of the child Tuesday to Jane Louise Moores, 38, of nearby Bramalea. "She is entitled to have her child, and the child is entitled to have its Mr. Justice Donohue said. Evidence given in the case re- vealed Mrs. Moores is sepa- rated from her husband, that the husband was not the father of the child, that she hadn't wanted to have the baby, and that she gave the child to friends to raise. The judge also heard that the friends, Mrs. and Mrs. Carl Feldstein of Toronto, have been kind foster parents who, raised the child, named Carrie, as their own. However, the judge followed precedents established in three Supreme Court of Canada cases VON home care discussed at meet involving natural parents who her husband there in 1968 be- decided to regain custody of cause of his alcoholism.

Mr. Justice O'Donohue said Mrs. Moore came to Toronto Although sis and I had al- ways thought in terms of blue and pink ducks, the yellow one was. a welcome addition to the house as far as we were concerned. The two cats however, were not as enthused and quickly devised a plan to get into the duck's cardboard quarters and indulged in light lunch. They also made short work of a nice pair of goldfish wa had bought one Saturday. After the cats' demise, we followed up by getting anoth- er pet and dubbed him Tiki. He made the mistake of en- gaging a passing car in paw- to-tire combat; and lost. Next in the line of succes- sors was Tseine, who lasted but a short time before de- veloping an unfortunate and fatal disease. The throne Is currently ruled by one whose faults are many and varied; but bear- able to a point. As yet, he hasn't eaten any goldfish, .ducks, or attacked the feline next door; but has worked his way up from mi- nor transgressions to almost major ones. He must feel pretty self- assured about his position in the family, as no matter how often he's chastised he bounces back to bis sinful ways.

Nurse-in-charge Taraoe Hir- onaka reported the VON paid visits in the past year, a decrease of 980 calls from the previous year, although there are now three full-time nurses on staff. The Lethbridge branch oper- ates within a 15-mile radius of the city and treats patients re- gardless of age, condition, time of day and financial circum- stances, said Miss Hironaka. Patients are charged accord- ing to their ability to pay, but the regular fee for the service h'as risen from. to per visit.

The Calgary operation Was established by the provincial government as a pilot proiect, almost three yeiivj ago. It is administered by the VOX and funded by the government. The community based pro- gram aims at caring for select- ed patients in their own homes with selective services provid- ed. To qualify, Miss Campbell ex- plained, a patient must be un- der the care of a physician, have a medical condition which can be treated adequately in the home, and by using the ser- vices of a nurse, physiothera- pist of hbmemakcr, free a hos- pital bed. The home situation Cost of home care, she said, is generally anywhere betweer 0 and 15 per cent of the per dieum hospital care. Furthermore, human4tarfan ispects of this type of program must not be overlooked, she said.
