Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN: How can a wife keep her sanity when her husband tells her lie can't make up his mind whether he wants her or another woman. He has asked me to bo patient and I'm trying. We've been married It years, no children, and I'm des- perate. He dresses up in his best to take her out spends money on her when we have unpaid bills, and makes no bones about it. His sex life is widi her and I know it. If anyone had told rne I could live like this I would not have believed it. I pray constantly for the strength to hang on, If I could stop loving him it would Ire easy. Please, Ann, tell me how to get tliis man to accept the fact that he needs psychiatric help? of California DEAR JO: Never mind about liim. Get some psychiatric help for yourself. A woman who sets liersell up for such emo- tional assault and battery needs to find out why. DEAH ANN LANDERS: I liked your answer to that high scltool girl whose boyfriend drank nothing but beer and there- fore was sure he could never be an alcoholic. I've got news for him. I'm 46 years old and have been an alcoholic since I was 15. I'm dry now, thank God, but in all those years I drank nothing but beer. I tried a martini once and it made me sick. My minimum consumption was six bottles a night more oflen nine or 10. I drank at least a case of beer every weekend usually {he quart bottles. I got drunk at home, at parties, at weddings, funerals, conventions, picnics, on my lunch hour at every opportunity. I told myself for too long that it was "only beer" and couldn't hurt me. Then one day I woke up with bleeding ulcers. I'm an arrested alcoholic now and that means I must never touch a drop of anything that contains alcohol. And this means beer. So keep telling 'om, Ann, until your type- writer ribbon wears out. And Uien I'll buy you a new one. Pittsburgh Ex-Beer Drunk DEAR PITTS: Thanhs for the letter and for the offer. I hope those readers out Uicre who are kidding themselves will give your letter a second thought. Or a third or a fourth. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your recent attack on the Other Woman reminded me of the hell 1 went through for seven years, only the Other Woman in my case was my mother- in-law. Jim and his mother discussed everything. The only way I could learn about our evening or weekend plans was to listen to Jim's daily telephone calls to his mother. Strangely enough, she was not a widow. Her husband was alive and well and living with her. Jim moved out of the house, back to his mother's, so many times I lost count. Every time he left, the children went into a panic and 1 had my hands full. When he moved out two years ago, I pacEed the rest of his clothes, dropped them off at his mother's and told him to stay there. The following year I met the "Other Man." We are going to be married in June and I'm happy for the first time in nine years. P.S. HIS mother lives in Australia. New Woman DEAR NEW: At the risk of boring you, I'll repeat myself. Men who are hopelessly hung up on their moms are easy to spot. How come you women don't notice the signs before mar- riage. Congratulations on your second choice A guy who puts that many miles between himself and his mother does not have tlie problem. It's not always easy to recognize love, especially the first time around. Acquaint yourself with the guidelines. Read Ann Landers' booklet, "Love Or Sex And How To Tell The Differ- ence." For a copy, mail 35 cents in coin and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope with your request to this newspaper.

That means "My friends, lei's speak Cree." It's a beautiful language, said (he (55-year-old grand- mother, who has been teach- ing it in classes in Edmonton since IS88. Now she has just completed her llth language- teaching book, this time a dic- tionary of tho Plains Cree Y dialect. There are four dialects of Cree, including the L dialect used in Ontario, the R and the Til. However, the Plains Cree is the commonest now, "An old lady once told me that Cree sounds like a little stream flowing over rocks, or the winds whispering in the pines. The voice rises aril falls. It's very melodious." The daughter of a Cree woman and a Scots-Canadian, Mrs. Anderson has spoken Cree since she was a child. But she stresses that those who learn it should learn to read and write it as well as speak it. "I would like my blood- brothers and sisters to be able to write their own stories and books on it." STUDIES WORDS A self-taught linguist, she spends many hours "studying it in my mind, working'out the roots and (he backgrounds of the words." Words have cultural conno- tations, she believes. And she disapproves of classes where tho teachers are whites who have no background in the In- dian culture. She has taught classes at the extension department of the University of Alberta, Charles Hospital and, now, at Grant MacEwan Com- munity College. She also has worked on re- serves in various parts of AI- be.V a. Her mother was a Jull- blooded Indian, "but non- status as her father refused to sign Hie treaties with, the white men." Her first hus- band was a Calahoo-band In- dian. Tliey lived for nine years in Oregon. She later married again and moved to Edmonton in 1968 when her husband became ill. Some of her books, which she publishes herself through (ho sheltered workshops for the mentally retarded, are di- rected toward children. There are several coloring books with only Cree words to de- scribe (he pictures. Some of her books arc being used on Plains Cree reserves and in schools in Montana, THOMAS ORGANS IPlNni.
