Saturday, March 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 31 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Several months ago, I met a man with whom I was completely compatible. After several dates, D. told me he had been seeing a psychiatrist for two years because of impotence. (A physician first established the fact that there was no anatomical reason for his inability to perform sexually and suggested D. asked if I would be patient and suggested that perhaps with my loving kindness I might help him regain his virility. I said I would try. Well, I did, for about a month, but it was too frustrating I tol'd him goodbye D. is a sensitive person and was deeply hurt. Now I have guilt feelings. Did I make a mistake? Is it possible to have a good marriage without sex? He was wonderful company. We shared a great many interests and our religious and cultural backgrounds are similar. I am 35 years old and need help. Please, Ann, a word from you would mean a lot. Big Q. Dear B.: I don't know where sex rates in your table of priorities. If it's important, you'd better forget about him. If, on the other hand, he has such sterling qualities, and if Burt Reynolds isn't running after you, you ought to reconsider. Impotence need not mean NO sexual satisfaction. Joint counselling could be extremely useful. I away and you've put air weight? Nobody's perfect. And anyone who says weight (and keeping ft off) is easy, well, tfiey never noo In0 Mow's the time to come back to Weight of course. Why wait?

Will you please clear up a mystery? By what authority do doctors who are unknown to the patient claim the right to barge into a hospital room, accompanied by a retinue of medical students, order the family to leave, and then proceed to reduce the helpless patient to the status of a guinea pig? I should mention that this happened to my father and the physician in charge was NOT present when this monstrous incident occurred. I understand this sort of thing happens fre- quently and I am at a loss to understand why such insensitivity is tolerated. Answer, please. Infuriated Dear In: I consulted with Dr. Calvin Plimpton, President of Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and he said, "Such crudity is outrageous, if the story is accurate. Patients have rights and some hospitals present every new patient with a copy of those rights when they are admitted." Dr Plimpton went on to say that each patient should be asked if he will permit medical students to observe his case. If he objects, his wishes are respected. In my opinion (and I'll probably catch plenty of heat for this the best hospitals are the teaching hospitals, those affiliated with medical schools. It is essential that students see patients in order to learn. If the staff doctor (professor of medicine) tactfully explains that he would like to bring in some students as observers, most patients do not object. In fact, since today's medical students are aglow with idealism and the spirit of serving humanity, they are loved by the patients. Students, interns and residents are able to spend more time visiting and reassuring patients than the overworked professor who is burdened with too many patients, too much paper work, teaching assignments, staff meetings and even, would you believe, fund- raising for the hospital. Dear Ann Landers: Please tell motorists that when they hear an ambulance siren they should have the decency (if not the good sense) to pull over and let the guy by. A few minutes can mean the difference between life and death. I've seen drivers block an ambulance and refuse to give an inch. One of those stubborn drivers ended up dead yesterday, right in front of my service station. The speeding ambulance hit him head-on. Thanks, Ann. Sorry About That Dear Sorry: So am I.
