Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta March 13, UTHBR1DSE HlRAVD-23 GOLDEN WEDDING A family dinner al Sven Erick- sen's Family Restaurant recenlly marked the 50lh wedding anniversary of John and Hermino Schaalje, and an open bouse was held at their residence for Ihe many friends who dropped by to wish them well. Mr. and Mrs. Schaalje were married in Yzendyke, the Netherlands, in 1922. They carne lo Canada in 1924, taking up residence in Monarch, and moved lo lethbridge in 1945. The couple has a dau- ghler, Trudy Kazokas; three sens, John, George and Ken- neth; fifteen grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Ann Landfers Recycling a bother says the expert TORONTO fCP) Recy- cling is a IxiUior. Someone has to wash out cans and step on Ihem. Someone has to collect the garbage and get it to someone else who is will- ing to treat it so it can be used again. Greg Urown says: Recy- cling is definitely not conven- i c n t, but it's convenience that's got us where sve'rc at." About 10 months ago, Greg decided there was something he could do, and People for Ecological Aclion is the re- sult. In its recycling handbook, P.E.A. is described as "a rion-protil corporation com- prising 10 full-time employees and countless concerned citi- zens who bring us their gar- bage." A rented garage in an alley serves as a small warehouse. The organization has three old trucks and 23 collection depots 2S... that lender kiss be plants on your nose. around the city. It has a Local Initiative Program grant that will last until spring, and after that hopes it may be able to diversify ths program and enlist the aid of other young people and Opportuni- ties for Youtli funds. In the beginning, TVE.A. consisted only of Greg and some friends, working on a volunteer basis. They began by trying to find people will- ing lo lake old cans, bottles and paper. "We just took the phone book and phoned a round the big people." RETURN IS LOW He says anyone wanting to try it can expect some sales resistance. "The glass companies are fine, but some companies would just as soon not have it, but they don't want to turn anybody down because of ttie bad publicity." The amount of money paid for salvage is small. Greg says it might buy gas or pay the rent on the garage. Any- one starting a recycling pro- ject needs some other source of money for it. P.E.A. has had .some free publicity and does some clas- sified advertising to tell peo- ple it is there. It also has its recycling handbook. Greg says about hvo-tMrds of the 25 depots where P.E.A. collects salvage are run by in- dividuals, often housewives who have interested their neighbors in (he idea. One is run by P.E.A. and the rest by other organizations. One of them is in a Neigh- borhood Involvement Centre thai, also has L. I.

DEAJl ANN LANDERS: 1 have been married for 25 years to a man 1 can no longer respect. The problem is lhat I am allergic to smoke. A person who is not similarly afflicted cannot comprehend the discomfort I when 1 am sub- jected to cigarette smoke. lily husband says I am selfish lhat I am trying lo interfere with his pleasure by putting my comfort first. Now it has gotten to I he point where WE arc at war over this. 'Hie minute lie puts his panls on in the morning he reaches for a cigarette. The last tiling he docs at night before he turns out the light is have a smoke. Although we are in our middle 10s I have told him that our love life is over because I cannot stand the smell of the smoke on iu's skin and breath and in his hair. He threatens to "go elsewhere." we were married my husband would buy a pack of cigarettes on Monday, arxl still half a pack left at the end of the week. In the past two years (since Ihc doctor told me I ?.m allergic to cigarette smoke) he has become a chain smoker. I think he is doing this to get even with me for something and I don't know what. Please help me. My Wit's Er.d DEAR WITS: From the intensity of the feelings on both sides, I suspect the smoking is a symptom of a deeper prob- lem between you two. Your husband is unhappy about some- tiling and you ought to find out what it is. I recommend joint counselling. If he won1! go with you go alone. It would be a shame to let 25 years of marriage go up in smoke when the real problem is rooted elsewhere. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your high praise for good psy- chiatric counseling prompted tliis letter. During the 1950's I was hospitalized seven times. The stays were as short as four days, and as long as five months. Each time I went home my psychiatrist said, "You'll have to do it yourself" I didn't know what I was supposed to do. He tried lo make it clear, but I didn't understand. Three years ago a friend suggested a new approach. I decided I had nothing to lose so I went to a meeting of "Hecovcry, Inc." I suddenly understood what my doctor had been saying. This is a truly remarkable group and free to anyone who wants to go. The people I met and listened to gave mo hope and courage. I left the meeting with renewed spirit, sure I could make it. I've become a "regular" and the group has done so much for me I find it difficult lo express my gratitude without sounding like a fanatic. Will you please tell others about Recovery, Inc. in your column, Ann. They have so much to offer, and so many ner- vous and emotionally ill people need help these days. Thank you. Lansing Devotee DEAR LANSING: I have printed letters similar lo yours, but it's time for another. Thank you for providing it. Here is- the address for those who want to write to the national headquarters and learn where Uio nearest chapter is: Rcc- ery, Inc., 110 South -Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60608. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your column is an education. If people read not only the letters- and your answers but also the hidden meanings between the lines, they would learn a great deal. 1 refer to the letter from the mother who was concerned because her husband insisted that their young son learn to fight. Any male who teaches his child to resort to physical vio- lence to prove his masculinity must have serious self-doubts about his own maleness. Our culture does not need any more men who can prove themselves only though brutality. We are brutal enough. A history of three wars in the last .10 years bears mute testimony to the damning evidence. Of Us DEAR ASHAMED: How line. "Man's inhumanity to man makes countless millions mourn."
