Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE BETTER HALF By Barnes ._'v cate Iff of- iocai ,enclat "Are you sure the house, hosn't been repossessed or the electricity cut off? There's some money left over this month.'' Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Hooray for the advice you gave the (laughter who screamed at her mother! (Her mother also screamed at her.) I hope she listens. My mother and I were bath screamers and it was terrible. Things finally got to the point where we couldn't carry on a civilized conservation. Every discussion ended in a shrieking match. Over my husband's objections I decided to get coun- seling. The results were spectacular. Mom and I will never be bosom buddies but we can at least conduct ourselves like adults. I actually enjoy being in her company for the first time in my life. It's impossible lo feel like a good person when you think your own mother dislikes you. And it's worse when you think it's all your fault. I learned a great deal about myself, and about her, too, from verbalizing the things that were bothering me. I used lo believe your advice to "get counseling" was a copout, Now I know better. At Last DEAR HAPPY: Thanks for letting me know you are happy at last and that counseling did it. Arc you listening, studenls? There will be a general meet- ing of the Lethbridge and Dis trict Junior Kennel Club at 7 p.m. Friday in the audio-visual room at Gilbert Paterson Jun- ior High School. Guests will be a veterinarian and the city >ound A meeting of the Letlibridge Municipal Hospital's Staff Curses' Association will be held p.m. Tuesday in the nurses' residence. Members of Hie administrative staff will be present.

Free baby- silling provided. The general meeting of th. Original Pensioners and Senio: Society will be held Wednesday at p.m. in gym 2 of (lie Civic Sports Centre. The annual banquet will be discussed. Entertainment and bingo will follow Ihe business meeling. Lunch will be served. Membership cards will be avail- able. The Anne Campbell Singers will hold a practice Friday at p.m. at Southminster Church. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have been reading your column for a long time hoping someone would write in with the same problem 1 have but no one has, and I am getting desperate. I'm a teen-ager who can't eat in a restaurant or at anyone's home without vomiting. There is nothing wrong with the food. It's me. I've tried eating lightly like a cottage cheese and fruit plate, or a tuna salad but it's the same story. I get the dry heaves and then must excuse myself. It's so embarrassing 1 could die. I'm a little overweight and I love my mother's cooking, but this is ridiculous. Our family doctor says nothing is wrong with me, that 1 will oulgrcw it. But I'll be going away to college in two years and I need lo get over this thing NOW. Please tell me what to do -Up Chucked In Flint DEAR U.: Go to another doctor. Get a complete physical. If a second doctor tells you there is nothing wrong with you, tell him people do not vomit for no reason. If there is no organic problem it must be emotional, in which case I urge you to get some counseling and learn why you cannot tolerale anyone's cooking except your mother's. DEAH ANN LANDERS: I am at war with our 14-year- old daughter. Marion does not get enough sleep and it's a con- slant battle to get her lo go to bed at a reasonable hour. At 9 o'clock I start: "Get off the phone. Lay out your cloihes. Take a bath. Roll up your hair. Do your homework." But it seems I never start early enough. At II o'clock she's still poking around. Marion's light is never out before midnight. She must be up at a.m. which is not enough rest for a growing girl. I have lo practically drag her out of bed In the morning. She sleeps right through Ihe alarm. Frankly, I need more rest but can't get it because I have to stay up to make sure Marion goes to bed. Then I must he up at to see she's up for school. I'm exhausted and disgusted. She tells me to get off her back. Any Eyed Mom DEAR BLEARY: Yes. Get off her back. A 14-year-old girl is old enough to go to bed by herself and get up without help. Put Ihe burden where it belongs. ON HER. And stop worrying. Some people require more rest than others. If Marion is laic a few mornings, she'll shape up on her own. Parl of her problem is yon. Citizenship ceremonies will be held at a.m. Tuesday in the Leihbridge court house, with Judge V. A. Cooney pre- siding and Charles Virtue, QC. tea t u r e d speaker.

TUESDAY, MAR. 15th 8 p.m. IN THE CLUBROOMS Day care situation criticized EDMONTON (CP) Alberta should raise its standards for day-care centres, Bill Irwin, an Edmonton public health inspec- tor, said here. Mr. Irwin told the Canadian Union of Public Employees Al- berla division's annual conven- tion that condilions in some private day-care centres are "unbelievable." He succeeded in persuading delegates not to support a com- mittee motion which said many children are receiving substandard care. The resolu- tion was referred back to the committee and was to bo pre- sented for debate again at the full convention. smell of paint and Ihe sound ol hammering all testify to a reju- venation program which Uie old mansion on the corner of 81 h street and 6th Avenue South is undergoing. The work, known as Project 99, is being done as part of a training program sponsored by Canada Manpower nnd the Priorities Employ m e n t Pro- gram (PEP) of the provincial government and run by Leth- bridge Community College. The Y building was found to be the perfect laboratory for courses in painting, carpen'.ry carpet and tile lay- ing. Materials for Ihe renovalion have been provided by the Y or donated by local organic lions and the college is nrovid ing the tools nnd instruction. Although the TOGA Carrie on its activities in many as being a part time instruc- or at the college, and Don Walker, the painting instructor, both spoke highly ol their crews and of the training they were jetting on the job. "I could put my crew on a construction j o b Hormoth said proudly. He add- ed that he had an opening in his company for one of the mer when the program is over and that half of the crew had jobf lined up. He pointed out that the col lege evaluates each man at the end of the project and woutf welcome inquiries from pro spective employers who are looking for skilled workers. Many of the rooms are spon- sored and Mrs. Cicon said spon- soring groups have been very iclpful in donating material. She indicated that anyone wish- ng to sponsor a room would be welcomed. The Y residence has room for 35 girls. Three meals a day are provided and the total cost is 585 a month for a single room, for a double and for a dorm room sleeping four. The cost decreases by at the end of two months. The age limit is 16 to 25, and a year is the maxi mum length of stay. EDMONTON (CP1 -The position of women in the union movement is improving, says Grace Harlman, secretary- Ireasurcr of the Canadian Union of Public Employees. There are w omen members out of a lolal of OCO in her union she said in an interview. 'The unions have to recog- nize that there will be increas- ing numbers ol women in the work force and in trade unions who have never been in a union before. "A massive education pro- gram is necessary for these women, many of whom are just coming back into the labor force after years away, as well as for Ihe" men. They rc.illy don't know how to handle tliis." Mrs. Hartman was in Ed- monton for the CUTE Alberta division's annxial convention. She said that in contracts now being negotiated, union locals are asking for some of Ihe recommendations contained in UK report on the status ol women in CUPE, presented to the national convention in Sep tember. "We're Just getting Into the first rounds of negotiation since that convention, but a number of good maternity clauses, gen- erally in hospitals, have been written in already." Mrs. Hartman said the rec- ommendations have been re- ceiving acceptance by local unions. "But you have to convince a lot of the women as well as Ihe she said. "They're vic- tims of their own propaganda They don't apply for jobs higher up in the union because they're afraid to. If they wcu'd apply there's no question Ihey would be accepted. She said, however, the union appears to be achieving a bal- ance. 'A lot of young women are coming inlo the service and they're demanding better condi- tions. At this convention it looks like a third of the delegates j are women.
