12 _ THE lEtHBRIDGE HERAID Thursday, AT 106, HE SAYS 'I DO'-The Rev. Copt. Jones A. Adams, at 106, look his fourth wife, Mrs. Barbara Holder, 66, In a ceremony in a district judge's chambers. Adams, who was chaplain for Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders, met his bride five years ago when she was a licensed vocational nurse caring for him during an illness. For The Record By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor 'I'ABl-E bookings are still being taken for tlie Lethbridge Symphony Women's League ball Symphony Ole April 4 in the German Canadian Club and invitations are now out for tbe RCMP Ball on May 1 in the El Rancho Convention Centre. This means it's time for gala af- fairs Judging by tlie almost overwhelming number of pant outfits in the Beta Sigma Phi fashion show this week, there's a bountiful selection to choose from in local shops. Dance music for the two balls is being supplied by the Mint Juleps for Symphony Ole anil the B'rass Corporation for the RCMP ball. It seems a couple of the members of the B.C. had the impression that we were knocking rock bands for playing at the big balls, 't ain't so, Dave. The column in question referred to a woman caller who'd complained about local organizers bringing in outside bands. She was particularly concerned over the Big Band not being used more. The gist of my remarks was that there were other local bands besides the Big Band, and they were in fact scheduled to play this spring. Anyway only the kids can afford to pay the enormous book- ings fees of touring bands. Organizers are free to choose their owa beat, and while the waltz isn't out it's surely taking a rest. After hearing this particular band on the weekend we know ball patrons will not be disappointed in the change of tempo. Even adults like to get a chance to do their thing. and that waltz would have been too much.

She was visited by John Yaremko, provincial social and family services minister. Under 25-year-olds will love the report of Dr. H. M. Toupin neurologist and member of the highways department medical advisory board who said that all drivers less than 25 years old are show offs. It's sheer idiocy to ignore the increasing numbers of young people who embark on safe-driving and driving training courses before they take the wheel. Might benefit some of the older drivers if they had to run a test now and then. The only difference with the older and younger show-off is that the latter stunts from time to time. The former nuikr-s it a way of life. If you're planning a trip back to Saskatchewan, make it in 1971. That's Homecoming Year in that province. To celebrate the occasion free passes are beiiip sent to former residents for a day's stay and overnight at any one of Saskatchewan's camping spots. About people are expected to return to the land of. urn. ah. wheat. beavers. wheat pine trees. and wheat. It's a fisher- man's paradise around Waskesiu and north to The Pas. Now if the department of highways will do some- thing about the road situation, tourists can enjoy the drive. You could cut the dust with a knife on those country roads, except it's so thick you don't dare leave the car for fear of losing it. We're joking of course, that only happens around Unify, Sask. In all seriousness the Saskatchewan government is going to have to fork put some of their budget for highway camping and picnic spots. Alberia can't be beaten "for its frequency of campsites. Those tourists will have to slop somewhere.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN I ANDERS: My buddy Ihinks your column is a lot of baloney. that r.obody writes you to you and you up (hose letters. He would like your opinion but 16 woa'l write, so I am writing for him. He bet me" So ywi wouldn't answer. My buddy's girl got herself in a family way. She is a means either she is (lie dumbest nurse Lu Massa- chasetts or slie got pregnant on purpose. They weren't even going steady. In fad, Ihey didn't hnvc more than six dates. The girl says if Tim doesn't marry her she is going slap a paternity suit on him. Tim says he is NOT going to marry Itcr and that's iinal. He is only 21 and Lhe girl is 23. Don't you think the girl would be belter of to go to a home and'give up the baby for adoption? She would save her family a lot of misery', ar.d also Tim. And wouldn't it be better for Hie baby to be brought up by two parents instead of a single girl? Please tell her so. Pal DEAR PAL: Tlie girl didn'l ask for my advice so I'm not going to tell her anything. This decision is one which should be made by tlie girl and not by Lhe lellow's buddy or by Ann Landers. Now go collect your Confidential to The Three Toed Sloth: You are not as different from others as you seem to Ihink.
