Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March 8, 1973 -THS IITH8R1DGE HEKAID It Pipe s By MARK PEDEKSEN BATHURST, N.B. (CP) -Even the thought of being labelled "a sugar and spice lady's writer" makes Jackie Brewer shudder. The darling of burly longshoremen who work the docks at Saint John, N.B., a determined pipe smoker and one of the few New Brunswick writers with a good background in. law, she's turned out hundreds of pieces which defy the label. She has been writing steadily since leaving busines ncarl; eight years "ago, first with Saint John Times-Globe whcr she patrolled the watcrfron .beat among other things, the j with Bathurst Tribune, a ne weekly, and now with Frederi ton Gleaner. Starvation was a possibitil at times, she admits with 1 trace of that little smile th 1 underlies her remarkably su 1 tie humor. "But I found th a t hung I pains are great agitators, so i produced. My how I pro I diced short stories, articles I confessions, fillers, poetry 1 plays, jokes, speeches, and th 1 occasional essay for slothfu g student de In her mid-40s now, Jackie's oots are deep in New Bruns-nck. She was born in the village Covered Bridge, 'a crossing i the Nashwaak River about 0 miles north of Fredericton, er father drowned when she as only eight and her mother as left to care for the young ;irl and her two brothers. Jackie completed high schoo t Fredericton and worked a arious jobs in the provincia apital. But a turning poin ame when. she happened to meet the late Lord Beaver >rook, by accident, at Covere< Iridge. He later gave her scholarship which allowed he o earn a bachelor of arts i University of New sugar ersity law school for two ears. "Charisma was a word not hen in use, hut he had she aid of the Canadian born lublisher. ('f was very young, very impressed and as many of my compeers reacted to mo-v vie stars, so I reacted to Bea-jerbrook. I found him fabu-.ous." WENT INTO BUSINESS Married the same year she graduated, she went into business in Fredericton, establish ing a holding company whicl bought and sold real estate, operated a credit bureau, ran a beauty shop, and entered the construction market. But she lett busines in 1965 after heavy losses suffered on a contract to clear land above the spice uac dam on the St. John Riv-r. She had always been keen n writing and Stuart. Trueman, icn editor in chief of The lines-Globe, convinced her to oin the paper as a reporter.' Jackie admits that she. con-idcred fiction her real talenl. "But the assumption was hat I could bluff my way Jirough until they caught up vith me after a couple of pay uheques, then go back to fie ion on a full stomach. "It seemed like a splendid move. I went to work at the Times-Globe and it was th wisest move' I ever made." Bill Smith, city editor of th day, assigned her to a front beat after she compUta-ed of being treated "lite ady." -A heart attack two vein ago didn't stop Jackie from helping o launch the Bathurst weekly but she found the free market more lucrative. "I'm very fortunate in that I really believe I have ihe beat of all possible worlds. I New Brunswick and never writing about it or its people." She's working on an anthology of short stories and a history of the province at the of Confederation but while in Bathurst she still found time to teach creative writing to aduls.

As his popularity grew, so did the reputation of the English as the only true bakers of fine muffins. Times have changed. The popularity of English muffins eventually spread to North America where muffins 'of new and varied textures and tastes were baked and on the streets by the Muffin Man but on the shelves of su- permarkets and corner stores. The Engish Muffin, not to be confused with the crumpet, is a round, fat, breadlike muffin, made of unsweetened raised dough that is baked on a grid- dle. It is then broken or pried into halves and toasted. The muffin is, traditionally, never cut with n knife. Now the muffin revolution Is spreading to the Prairie prov- inces where a Vancouver-based bakery has inlroduced a muffin machine capable of pro- ducing muffins daily in Edmonton. It bakes the muffins for four minutes on one side and turns them over automatically for an other minutes. When baking is complete, the muffins are cooled, partly spli and bagged. The muffin -may be used a simple topping of butler, jam or jelly, or may be used to cre- ate such a delight as eggs Bene- staple item on th breakfast menu of all great ho- tels. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've read a lot of late not only in your column, but elsewhere about how TV football is ruining marriages. Now that the season is long over I'd like to make a few comments. As a husband who watched every weekend game all season long (and I'm not ashamed to admit it) I'd like to tell you why. My wife and I have not had a conversation in ten years. The only time she talks to me is to complain about the kids or my relatives, for money, report on the condi- tion of the plumbing, or un- DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have been trying to leam to play duplicate bridge for over a year and I'm no good at it. I want to know is this: Are good bridge players more intelligent than poor bridge, players? In other words, is the ability to play cards related to a high I.Q. or superior intellect? I was an excellent student, and am doing well in business, but this duplicate bridge thing has me feeling like a case of arrested development. load a litlle beauty parlor gossip. She reads movie mag- azines, has no interest in my work, and we have very lit- tle to talk about. TV is a substitute for other things. At least that's the way it is in our house and I'm willing to bet I am Not Alone DEAR NOT ALONE: I wouldn't bet against you. If you women out there want to try a little experiment the next time your husband hooks his eyeballs into the idiot box, offer him an interesting al- ternative. If you print my letter, Ann, please don't use the name of my town. Everyone would know I wrote it. Thank you. No Expert. DEAR NO EX: Stop down- grading yourself. I've seen some superb card players who can't do anything else and this includes make a living. On the other hand, some very bright people are rotten card players for the simple rea- son that they attach no im- portance to such games and find it difficult to concentrale .on something they view as t frivolous, DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm so ashamed of the mess I have made of my life I don't know where to turn. When I have to write to Ann Landers, you know I'm at the end of my rope. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "Are you sure that's your size? Remarkable. .You have a foot one size smaller than my daughter who just got her first pair of booties." JACK'S DONE EVERYTHING Jack McClellond, Canada'! best-know pubTisher, says there's little he hasn'r done during his 25 years in the publishing business. In Weekend Maga- zine ihis Saturday he tells about authors, editors, how books are sold, and other facts of Ihe publishing Industry. IN YOUR LETHBRIDGE HERAID WEEKEND MAGAZINE I was a widow for four children grown. I vent back to my old job and t saved my sanity. That's where I met L. I won't drag out the story, but I could vrite a book, Ann. This man came in a customer, hand- some, beautifully dressed, a ew years younger than my- self. He was polite, refined, and very interesting to talk to. We- had dinner one and I felt like a school girl. After that we were together almost every night. He said his wife had died three years ago, that he owned his own business, had property and I was the first woman he had met since her death that he could really love. We were married three months later and I was in heaven. The following week the bills began to come in. He owes everybody, has a jail record for forgery, was not a widower, but divorced three limes. He drinks alone which I did not know, and I'm a nervous wreck. We were married by a priest and I am ashamed to go to con- fession with this mess. How could I have been so stupid? Please help me. No Name DEAE N.N.: See a lawyer. There is a good chance that you can have this marriage annulled. And get moving. The sooner out of this mess, the bolter. ALARM CLOCKS TOILET PAPER White or Pink.
