Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, March 20, 1977 ~ THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 21 DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'd like to get nsy band* on that snob who wrote the obnoxious letter saying she bad no use for foreign women. The writer made a point that every foreign woman she knows has a story about bow rich she was over there. Everybody's father owned a factory or a bank. She criticized the way we hold the fork in the left hand and push food with the knife. I wish the writer of that letter could live in Poland for  few years. She wouldn't be so concerned with silverware. She would then understand why so many people want to come to America. Someone should remind her that her ancestors also came here from a foreign country - unless she is an American Indian. Furthermore, 800 million people in the world don't use forks at all. They use chopsticks. Does that mean they are ignorant? Put her in her place, Ann. - Disgusted DEAR DIS: It isn't necessary. You did - and I thank you. � � * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a mature 20-year-old who is In love with a 25-year-old man. My problem consists mainly of the past - both mine and his. I was going with a fellow my parents thought the world of, even though he was spoiled and childish. We fought most of the time. I decided we could never have a good life together so I dropped him. Now I have met someone I adore. We get along famously and he is the man I want to marry. My ex-boyfriend heard about it and is furious. Two weeks ago he wrote my parents � long letter telling them how much he loves me and how we could make a go of it if I gave him another chance. My folks won't get off my back. They are on me night and day to try again with the old boyfriend. I don't want to see him, Ann. I've found what I want. My folks don't like my choice because he has been divorced. I know all about the divorce and the reasons for it. It will not affect our marriage. Are my parents being unfair or am I due for a rude awakening? - Fractionated DEAR FRAC: Your discarded Romeo had no business writing to your parents. He sounds like a loser to me. As for the current candidate I don't know whether he's the one for you or not. Surely because a man has bad a marriage failure does not mean he should be forever banished from the human race. But 20 is pretty young. Why don't you give it another year and see? If you still feel this way on your 21st birthday, you've got the green light from me.    DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter wants to announce her engagement to a fine young man who lives in a far-distant city. They met in college. A point of etiquette, please. Should we contact the young man's parents or wait until they contact us? We want to do the proper thing and none of us knows what it is. Thank you.-Confused DEAR CON: According to "The Book," the parents of the young man should contact the parents of the young lady. This is merely a formality, however. Common sense takes precedence over any rule of etiquette. Telephone the parents of your future son-in-law or write a letter saying you are pleased about the upcoming engagement, and invite them to your city.

The YW's first yoga classes are almost over, and drew about 60 students divided into classes of io students each, held days or evenings. The two instructors are Deanne Dearing and Laurie Schultz. They teach a combination of hatha yoga and pranayama yoga. Hatha yoga, which literally refers to day and night rule of the conscious and unconscious, involves postures and breathing exercises. Pranayama yoga involves control of life force through breathing exercises. Both offer physical exercises as well as instruction in med-taton techniques, and they are becoming increasingly popular in Canada following their importation some years ago from India. The general study of yoga is more than 2,000 years old. Yoga tends to have an image as a "for kooks only" activity, but both instructors insist the image is simply not true. Doctors recommend it, and one of the recommendations made before the course starts is that students have a thorough physical examination from a city doctor. In the past sessions, one woman was pregnant, and Mrs. Schultz said her doctor was "quite enthusiastic" about the yoga exercises. "Yoga is a form of preventive medicine," Mrs. Schultz said. "It helps to keep the body YMCA program young and flexible, and there are exercises and techniques for any type of physical problem or disorder, so tine programs can become quite individualized." "Many of the physical benefits of yoga could be gained from any good form of physical exercise," Miss Dearing said. "The major thing about yoga is that it also has psychological benefts. It teaches you to relax at will, and is helpful for active people and insomniacs who have problems sleeping." She said a number of her students are secretaries, who have learned to take about two minutes out in a tightly compacted yoga exercise session to relax them when they're under tension - and refresh themselves completely. Yoga's concentration and meditation techniques, both said, can help both men and women to overcome tension and nervousness in their day-to-day activities, and yoga also keeps them in good physical health through its exercises. The courses now offered are all for beginners and last ntno weeks. Total cost is $8 for adults and $5 for high school, college or university students. Further information is available from the YW. A slightly more extensive course will be available hi the next session of yoga, for those with some experience in it. Higher-level yoga will be offered by the YW this fall, as .Miss Hearing is planning to t;............ TIME AND DAY..........................................
