Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Most of the letters that appear in your column come from city people. Please print a problem that might be boring to your urban readers, but farm folks need help, too. My husband and I have been married for 15 years. We have five children and we get along fine. The only thorn in my side is my inlaws. They have the farm next to ours and we end up doing all their hard work. Every morning for 15 years my father - in- law has telephoned my husband before breakfast, or worse, he comes over here in person and tells my husband as if he were a small child what needs to be done during the day. If we are the breakfast table, my father-in-law pulls up a chair and tells him to "hurry up." When my in - laws go on vacations we are expected to do their chores. They cannot do our chores when we go on vacation because they can barely handle their own. So, when we leave town we have to hire help. I feel they should do the same. My husband has two broth- DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is a rebuttal to "Lived Through It." The reader fell that when someone has lost a loved one, real friends should ask, "Is there anything we can do to help?" Sorry, I don't agree. Real friends don't ask. They know what they can do to help. They can prepare food that cam be easily served or put in a freezer. They can provide transportation for relatives. They can take the email children for a few days. They can be on  hand to answer the phone. They ers but they were a lot smarter than he was. They went to college and got away from their parents. It burns me up to listen to them and their wives tell us how comforting it is to know that the folks have somebody near to help them now that they are getting on in years. We can't move so please don't suggest it, Ann. Just tell me if there is any way to get a grown man to cut himself loose from his parents so he and his family can lead their own lives.-Dakota Plight. DEAR DAKOTA: Your problem is as close to insoluble as any I've ever read. Not only is your husband tied up financially with his parents (I'll bet they gave him his farm) but worse, he is tied up emotionally in a way that his brothers are not - which is probably why they left and he stayed. Ask your husband to compromise on one point. He should tell his parents that he can't handle their chores when they take vacations. Suggest that from now on they hire the same man you hire when you go away. If he agrees it will reduce your hostility. can meet family and friends at the airport and offer a spare" room to house them. The ways to help a friend in time of trouble are countless. All one needs is a genuine interest. True friends don't ask questions. They go ahead and do what needs to be done. The person who says, "Please call me if I can do anything," is mouthing a polite phrase. -Been There Myself DEAR B.T.M.: Thank you for a no-nonsense, lay-it-on-the-line approach to a very real problem. I couldn't have responded better myself. In fact, I didn't. Friday, March 14, 197) - THI LETHBRIDOE HIRAID - 21 lnter-racial family happy SACKVILLE, N.B. (CP) -The large old home on the outskirts of Sackville reverberates with the laughing voices of six children, some still incomprehensible. That's probably because two are Vietnamese and one is a Mlc Mac Indian. One is a Canadian Negro and the others white. They're the children M Dennis and Juanita Chipman, a couple who "simply love children, and we have' r>n f\np~nt~y hardships." Dennis is a 30-year-old accountant who is secretary- Handicap conquered Lovely Linda Light is shown left in 1962, when she was Miss Kansas and runner-up in the Miss Universe beauty contest.

A victim of multiple sclerosis, Miss Light, has been confined to a wheelchair since 1967, was named the 1973 MS Poster Girl in the U.S. Kidneys used for research By GLENMS Z1LM EDMONTON (CP) - Human kidneys taken from aborted fetuses are being used to test how chemicals can affect kidney development and cause birth defects, a Nova Scotia researcher said here. Dr. J. F. S. Crocker of Dal-housie University in Halifax said the kidneys, about the size of the head of a pin, come from abortions performed at about the five-week term of the pregnancy, the crucial stage in development. They can then be laboratory "grown" for about seven more days to determine how chemicals, especially potassium, affect the crucial development stage. Dr. Crocker told the Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation that he and his colleagues believe through this research they can identify some of the causes of kidney cysts. Using the tiny kidneys, Dal-housie's researchers have reproduced the most common defect simply by limiting the amount of potassium. No clinical cases of potassium deficiency have been identified yet, but now that doctors know this can cause kidney disease, the next step is to look for it, he said. Dalhousie is the first institute in the world to use human kidneys, although researchers in | Denmark and the United states are preparing to do so.' "We know that some things are species specific," he said. This meant a product that might cause defects in rat kidneys would not affect dogs or humans or any other species. New drugs might also be tested on human tissues, and tragedies such as birth defects caused by the drug thalidomide might be prevented. Girls escape from forced marriages From AP-REUTER TEHRAN (CP) - Three girls of Iranian origin who were forced to marry government officials against their will arrived here recently after a 6,000-mile flight from Tanzania by canoe, dhow, on foot, rail and finally by plane. The girls, identified as Waji-heh Yousef 15, Foqzieh MouS' san, 17, and Badri Oussa, 20 were forced in 1971 to marry black cabinet ministers of the regime then in power. After a plea to the United Nations failed, they decided to escape "jail" they told reporters here. A fourth girl, Nasrin Hos-saini, 16, also married to a local official against her will, failed to escape. She could not reach the rendezvous point in time. REPORTED IMPRISONED Unconfirmed reports in Tanzania have said that at least six members of the girls' families had been imprisoned on the island following their flight. Reports of forced marriages in Zanibar raised a storm of controversy in neighboring Tanzania, the mainland part of the African republic, where they were strongly criticized by religious leaders. A spokesman for the girls told reporters they escaped from their husbands at midnight two weeks ago and used all available transportation, at times walking through the bush, to reach safety in Nairobi, Kenya. treasurer of a Sackville firm. Juanita is a former teacher who taught school In Sher-brooke, N.S. Even while their own children-Wesley, 6, and Crystal, 4-were being born, the Chip-mans were thinking of adopting others. Nelson; a slender Negro child, was the first adopted son. He's three now and came into the Chipman fold in 1970. Faith, an 18-month-old Mic Mac Indian girl, became an adopted daughter in 1971, while the Chipmans considered steps to take a Vietnamese orphan under their care. , In August that year, the couple started the proceedings in New Brunswick and in November, 1972, went to Montreal to receive not one, but two boys - the offspring of Negro American soldiers and Vietnamese mothers. CLIMB THWARTED Trieu, now a husky five-y e a r -o I d, and two-year-old Noel have become the newest stars in the Chipman household. Mr. Chipman recalled recently the first night with the boys in Montreal. The four of them slept in a hostel in the city and Noel kept insisting on climbing a stairway. On his third trip up the stairs, Noel found his way blocked by Trieu, who refused to let the tyke go any further. Trieu resolved the language barrier. "Speaking in Vietnamese, he seemed to explain that he (Noel) must lie down and go to sleep," Mr. Chipman said. The night's sleep was resumed without interruption. Noel was formerly named Benjamin but six-year-old Wesley changed the name to Noel, because the newest ad dition came home close to Ch^stmns.. But Mr. Chipman still refers to the boy as "little Benjie." The other three children readily accepted their new brothers, said Mrs. Chipman. "Wesley was terribly pleased to have a brother Trieu's age and Nelson was happy to get out of his crib and let Benjie in." Things aren't specially difficult with six children of four different races, Mrs. Chipman said. The toughest problems are at meal time and bed time. At the table "I think the little fellows are trying to make up for lost time since there hasn't been a single thing they have refused to eat in large quantities." Neither of the Chipmans has found the pressure great enough to give up their outside acivities. Mrs. Chipman is a member of several women's clubs and is an advisor on the local family planning committee. Mr. Chipman continues bis work in counselling penitentiary inmates and a number of other social services projects. Besides the six children at home, the couple also support three foster children-Yo-landa in the Philippines, Bryan in India and Eds on in Brazil.
