-Monday, March 17, 1973 _ THE tETHBRIDGE HERALD _ 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am IB, the oldest of five chil- dren. I am'being punished be- cause I slapped my little brother for helping himself to a peanut butler sandwich at four o'clock in the afternoon. I am sick of seeing him snack all day on candy, cake and junk. When mealtime comes he isn't hungry. None of the other kids do this, just him. It makes me angry to think that ho could die earlier be- cause of poor nutrition. Please say something. Concerned Sis DEAR SIS: .Of course you are right lo be concerned about your little brother's diet, but apparently your mother does not approve of your slapping him and I'm with her. Are you sure you were worried about his health was just an excuse to belt' him for something else? DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a problem that is get- ting me down. It's a neighbor with whom I was once rather friendly, but since she and her family moved to another suburb I haven't seen much of her. This woman used to drink a little, but now she drinks a lot.

'A' N No children under 16 allowed k she telephones me and she is always bombed out of her mind. She goes on and on and on, repeating herself until I could scream. Yester- day she called twice. After I had listened to her for 30 min- utes, she telephoned a second time (ope hour later) and had completely forgotten about the previous call. Although I feel sorry for her I am becoming resenlful of the way she cuts into "my time. What can I do short of telling her in plain lan- guage that I don't want her to call me anymore. er Neighbor DEAR FORMER: Telling a drinker anything is utterly useless. When she gets into the sauce she'll call anyway. The best solution is to have your telephone number changed and request the new number unlisted. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your answer to Big Bertha, who wrote in favor of waist- up nudity on the beach, was disappointing to me. I've been reading your co'umn for years and had you pegged as a for- .ward looking, broad-minded person. You state that waist-up nud- ity is still against the law in this country, and of course you are right. However, a ew years ago the bikini was also against the law on most reaches. Would you have us go back to the days when vomen were obliged to be covered from head to foot in order to enjoy a dip in a public place? Within my lifetime we have made tremendous strides in iterating ourselves from the errible sense of body shame hat has bedeviled the human race for so long. I remember so well and it was only 20 ?ears ago, when one of us .vould lower a bathing suit strap so we might tan evenly, a beach guard would hurry over and ask us to please "be careful" and not show any- thing that shouldn't be seen. Please don't foster the sup- erstition that any part of the body is indecent. I am look- ing forward (o the day when we will be sufficiently mature to accept complete nudity in public. This will make for a healthier society, physically, mentally and morally. gusta, Maine DEAR MAINE: We are all products of our culture, and I was not brought up to accept nudity in public. If this labels me a narrow minded, back- ward looking prude, so be it, but I doubt that I will ever change, no matter what the trend.

Mr. Crawford cut tho ribbon to mark the opening of the Blue Sky Lodge, remarking that he hoped the lodge would bring happiness to all who lived there. "I hope this home brings much happiness to all who will ever enjoy its facilities and hope there will be a great many happy days and years spent here by the citizens who are deserving of all our considera- tions." Mr. Crawford shared the rib- bon-cutting honor with the old- est member of the lodge, Mr. John Coolin, 94. During his address Mr. Craw- ford commented on the high re- igard held for administrator, Don LeBaron, and the excel- lence of staff appointments. He added that the opening was "the most enjoyable 1 have had the pleasure of at- tending." Among the dignitaries pres- ent at tho lodge, was Camm 3ames, deputy mayor, who re- presented the city of Lethbridge and the city council. He said it has long been a policy of the provincial gov- ernment, the municipal district and the aldermen of the city :o be concerned for the wel- fare of the senior citizens. Mr. Barnes added that plans were well underway for the construction of a five to seven storey high-rise for senior ci- tizens in the downtown area. Mr. LeBaron, administrator of the Green Acres Foundation, concluded the ceremonies, say- ing that the Blue Sky Lodge was a 10 year project, finally realized in 1870. There are 46 single rooms in the lodge, with three double rooms for married couples, all of which were filled immediate- ly upon completion. The waiting list of senior citi- zens desiring rooms in any of the three lodges is now relative- ly small, explained Mr. Le- Baron. He added that the govern- ment had provided an excellent program for the development of such lodges and v.'ould hope- fully continue to do so. Also included in the ceremon- ies, was a presentation of a painting to the members of the home from the. architect who designed tho building and his associates. In conclusion, the dedicatory prayer was lead by Rev. King, and the large public room was named in honor of John Lan- deryou in recognition of the work and dedication he has con- tributed to helping tho senior citizens of Leihbridge and area.

TATEM District Home Economist Don't buy an appliance like a washing machine, stove, etc. from a small country store without first finding out where you stand if something goes wrong shortly after you have bought it, advises the Ed- monton Better Business Bureau.

BINGO "And I say it's only a alarm clock o Are you going lo believe ryour own ive parts will be replaced, but here is generally no provision n the warranty to cover labor costs involved in replacing ihe >art or shipping charges, ail outlets in the larger urban centres usually absorb these :osts themselves to keep their customers satisfied. Depart- ineut stores, for example, have service centres and if anything ijoes wrong with an appliance ihey have send their service man out immediately. Grocery stores, particularly small rural communities, often act as sales agents for a firm in the city which distri- butes a certain manufacturer's appliance. H o w e v e r, these stores are rarely equipped to provide service if anythi ng goes wrong, and what's more, they usually have no intentions of getting involved in provid- ing this service. Tins is all perfectly legal, but invariably the customer rloes not realize this until some- thing goes wrong, and then it is too late. To prevent this type of situa- tion, ask lots of questions ant] insist on answers, says the Bel- ter Business Bureau, Be sura you thoroughly understand the entire transaction before mak- ing your purchase.
