Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: The letter signed "Telling It Like It Is, Wisli You'd Do The Same" spurted me into ac- tion, I've been wanting to write to you for a long time. Your approach to helping the alcoholic is a good one, Ann. Don't let anyone talk you out of it. Your readers should be lold that having "love and compassion" does rot mean creating a depen- dency which is undoubtedly what happened in the case of the woman who suffered the consequences of her hus- band's drinking for 38 long years. Unfortunately there are millions of women like her. They help push the alcoholic into an early grave because they "love" him (oo much to do the most loving thing, which may be to "flirow the bum out." Too many wives continue to "rescue" an alcoholic husband because of a selfish martyr- dom of their own choosing. Keep telling il like it is, Ann. Ed Hale, Executive Di- rector Of Chattanooga Area Council On Alcoholism DEAR S.E.H.: Thanks for those kind words. I received much criticism for my hard-line stand, but I am not backing dawn DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is being written in the dead of winter. We live in Connecticut and it's plenty cold up here. My wife insists on sending our two daugh- ters, eight and ten years of age, to school bare-legged wilh only sandals on their feet. She insists that bare legs and build up an im- munity to colds and other sicknesses. My wife was raised in a foster home and had to walk to school in hand-me-down shoes that were either too small or too large. She often took her shoes off and went barefooted, even in very cold weather. The woman insists this accounts for her good health and the fact that she never gets colds. She wants to raise our daughters the same way. The girls must have inherit- ed their mother's nigged con- stitution because they don't get colds either, but please, Ann, tell her there is no truth in her theory; J. W. Of Union, Cenn. DEAIl J.W.: It's difficult to tell a person there is no truth in a theory when it seems to work. According to my medical consultants, however, going bare-legged in the winter does not build up an immunity to any tiling. Your theory that the girls inherited their moth- er's rugged consSitution is a likely one plus the fact that she has them psvched out. I firmly believe that a positive attitude toward good health can go a long way to- ward keeping people well, Dad. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A close relative of mine lost her husband two years ago. Within a month otter the fu- neral, large life-size pictures of him appeared in almost every room of her house. There's a huge likeness over the TV that I find most dis- tracting. His eyes have a piercing quality and he is staring out at people. It gives me the creeps. Do you think I should men- tion this to her? I don't want to hurt the woman's feelings but I'm sure others are as uncomfortable as I. Tempt- ed To Speak Out DEAR OUT: Pass up the temptation. It's her house and if she wants those pictures around, no one has the right to ask her to remove them. Perhaps in time she will need them less. I hope it is soon, for her sake. Confidential to Willing To Be Set Straight: It is not true that in countries where wine is served at the dinner table there is very little al- coholism. In France alcohol- ism is the No. 1 health prob- lem. More than French- men die annually of cirrhosis. This is len tunes the death rate in the U.S. Nutrition claims supported'' TORONTO (CP) Marilyn Winarski, the Ontario govern- ment's chief nutritionist, has re- jected claims by a federal lay- men's advisory body that Cana- dians are badly fed. "You just can't substantiate Miss Winarski, chief of nutritional service in the On- tario health ministry, said Thursday. "It's a gross exag- geration. They're trying to get attention." She said "I can't go along with in referring to claims by the National Council o! Welfare that most Canadians lack nutrition and that poor families have children who are undersized, sick, disabled and prone to disease. Now In Operation PARK ELECTRIC 711 17th St. N, Ph. 326-8981 or 328-7814 Commercial and Residential Work The council, appointed by the federal welfare ministry, also said improved nutrition would prevent much mental retarda- tion and physical deformity. Miss Winarski said these claims are not supported by scientific evidence. She said there is evidence that severe malnutrition can cause mental rtetardation in laboratory ani- mal, but notes that marginal malnutrition does not, in either animals or humans. And cases of severe malnutrition among Ontario humans were rare. To make the sort of claims federal group has. Miss' Wi- narski said, would require sur- veys that include bi-chemical analysis of tissue samples from people surveyed across Canada. Development of teeth, hair, eyes and other areas would be checked against analysis and inquiries inlo the individuals' diets. This sort of research has be- gun with federal sponsorship but survey data is still being analysed and no conclusions can be reached yet, Miss Wi- narski said. She thinks Nutri- tion Canada may have some answers Inle next fall.

Bachelor boys' lib M'jrth 10, 197S THE UTHBR1DOE HfRAlO 17 Doctor backs snacks By GLENNIS ZILM TORONTO (CP) Keeping dds away from candy and sugar to save their teeth may bo the answer after all, says Montreal children's doctor. "Harping away about candy and sugar is a cheap and possi- >ly harmful excuse for the lack of insight and knowledge of the many contributing causes ot dental said Dr. G. H. Mckerson in an article for doc- ;ors. Writing in Canadian Family a medical magazine, le said he had seen a number of cases wliero children suffered :rom low blood condi- OQ in which the blood Is low in absorbed sugar needed for ml- rition, usually between meals. For example he had treated a child of about age four for so- called temper tantrums that al- ways occured about 11 In morning or in the alto- noon. As the time factor was so striking, he suggested snacks between meals. "The parents protested vehe- he said, until he sug- gested the choice: "The child's teeth or his brain, and with this, the parents listened to reason." "Since that day, then) had been no "temper Dr. Nickerson said. "Sugar is vital to the activo and lively growing child. In my opinion, snacks between meals and even some candy are essen- ial to active, growing chil- dren." Snacks and candy "make a minor contribution to dental caries and a major contribution to good he said, "prov- ided fluoridated drinking water, adequate nutrition and good oral hygiene, especially dental flossing, exist." Dr. Nickerson. also said It was "interesting to speculate" on VANCOUVER (CP) Grade 12 boys will have an opportunity to become proficient in baking, child care, budgeting and dia- pering of babies through a new course to be offered in Vancou- r schools next September. The course has been designed to prepare the boys for leaving home and living on their and it's been dubbed a "bache- lor's survival course." The co-ordinator of home eco- nomics for Vancouver schools, Margaret Murphy, said the course has been designed specif- ically to meet the needs of young men. She added that many boys are leaving home as young as Grades 10 and 11, and many leave after high school graduation. "Up to now, were al- lowed to take food courses, but there was nothing more com- she said. "I haven't been satisfied that the boys were making the best use of their time making only foods." Mrs. Murphy said the boys will learn (he skills of cooking, buying food, nutrition, buying clothing, household appliances and bedding, and the selection and care of clothing. Graduates of the course will understand sewing and will be prepared to cope with problems like lorn-off will be able to make tbeir own T- shirts and double-knit slacks.

Toronto lib TORONTO (CP) Hugging, singing and chanting, women took over part of Nathan Phil- lips Square here to demon- strate their solidarity for an event billed as Internationa: Women's Day. About 150 women took- part in Iho demonstration and they sliook hands with cutious pass- ers-by and "heaven help the working girl in a world that's run by men." Several carried signs declar- ing "the fight has just begun." The rally was one of many celebrating the day throughout the world. It is celebrated in all Communist countries, where women take a one-day holiday. The Toronto rally was co-or- dinated by Women's Place, a centre for Toronto women's ac- tivities. Representatives of striking Wardair stewardesses and Dare Poods Ltd. workers from Kitch- ener asked Ihe crowd for their support.

Cuba lib n HAVANA (Itoiter) Full f< male emancipation, one of the Cuban regime's main pre- occupations, is still meeting fierce opposition from tradition- ally-inclined husbands, a con- ference of working women was told. A statement published yesterday at the end of a two day national conference working women said that the incorporation of women into the labor force is of great inv portance to the country's eco- nomy. It insisted on the necessity of fighting some factors inherited from the post 'bourgeois ideology" such as the belief that a woman's place is her home. Much has been done in Cuba since the 1959 revolution to free women from traditional chores. Day nurseries are being set up throughout the island to look after children up ID the age ol six and about women at- tend evening classes after work. Chinese lib TOKYO (AP) China con- ceded today that although its women have made some giant strides toward equality with men, they still are dis- criminated against in job selec- tion, wages and marriage. In an editorial marking Inter national Women's Day, the People's Daily said: "The victory of the demo- cratic revolution and tire social- ist revolution in our country has opened a broad road to wom- en's emancipation. Women and men are equal in Hie political, economic and cultural fields and in domestic life.
