Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was so pleased when I read that wonderful line in your column by Ihc famous person who said, "We have four children. Two of them are adopted. I can't remember which ones." My husband and I feel the same way about our adopted children. have two others. It's amazing that our chosen youngsters hear a greater physical resemblance fo my hus- band ami me than the children I gave birth to. Some folks who don't know our two oldest are adopted often remark on how much Billy looks like !iis dad and how much Valeric resembles me. When we look our oldest child from The Home, the dear woman who handed him to us gave me this little poem. Please pass it along: "Not flesh of my flesh Nor bone of my bone, Cut still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, You dtiln't grow under my heart, But in it." Bowling Green, Ky, DEAR B. G.: Thank you in behalf of the thousands of adoptive parents whose sentiments are reflected in that little poem. It's lovely. to cleaner WOT EDMONTON (CP) Jack Wighton a nd h is f ami ly are committed to a cleaner, more efficient world. Mr. Wighton, an administra- tor at the University of Alberta genetics department, is an ar- dent anti-pollutionist who be- lieves in practising what lie preaches. Ills wife and 10-year- old daughter are just as devoted to the cause. "You really can't blame the government for jwpulation al- though you can criticize it for offering the wrong to have children rather than not to, or to adopt. They should en- courage people to stay single rather than marry. "We have one daughter and both my wife and I were only children, not because of genet- ics, but through choice. "As for air pollution, 60 per cent of the health problem, as far as Edmonton is concerned, is the result of tho car." He owns n small fuel-injected sedan but uses it rarely, prefer- ring to bicycle to work seven montlis of i he year and use the bus the rest of the time. LOSE HEAT The average Canadian home doesn't escape criticism. "House.? here are not de- signet] for the eco-system. They're designed to last the length of the mortgage. The amount of heat lost from these nouses in the winter is fantastic. "I can't do anything about the furnace in my house but I bank the snow as high as I can around the house in the winter and we never open the windows. "Jt's more economical to use Hie shower than to take a bath And we use the bath water for everyone. If yo u could store hath writer it could be used in the water closet, or for washing [lie car or watering the garden "As for electricity, sockets are Ls too much use of copper. In light sockets with provisions for three bulbs, we've removed two. and there is a rule that lights are off when you're out of a room." Their house has no Ircezer. It has a frosty corner in the base- ment during winter so Mr Wighton enclosed tliis and uses it for food storage. "I maintain we wash clothes too If we rofrain from buying while clothes v, wouldn't have to. I don't own a white shirt." The family has reduced its garbage output from two cans to less than one a week, largely by compacting tins, rcu.smg the large bags they get with their groceries and by putting or- ganic waste into a compost iieap. "The psychological stress of trying not to contribute to envi- j ronmontal problems is very he Fays. "It's much eas- i ier to be a happv polluter."

Just give Joyce Kortgaard a call, a cheque some information and she'll save yon Iho embar- rassment of missing your armi- or your wife's birthday. Mrs. Itortgaard started Exec- utive Shopping Service last Dc- cornbcr and she says it's prov- ing a boon on important dates. She had thought about the service for years, but credits her husband witli getting her moving. "He said 'Why don't you get going and do something about it, instead of talking about That proved the incentive for printing a brochure which she mailed fo more than pro- spective clients. It says rn part: "Save yourself all kinds of time and trouble. Have Joyce Kortgaard choose the per- fect gift a gift designed to delight the recipient while you relax and enjoy compliments on your thoughtfulness." A client pays a year for the service which jogs memo- ries well in advance of impor- tant dates. If a client is too busy to shop, all he has to do is tell Mrs. Korlfi.iard what he has in mind, including the specific price range, and she'll take it from there. "I don't hide she said. "They are given the bilk from the store." j Her list, which includes many oil executives, is kept confiden- tial because "some husbands don't want their wives to know." Mrs. Kortgaart defends the F3 called forgetful husbands saying "they don't really forget, they just don't get time to shop." Besides providing assistance for busy executives, her busi- ness also helps fulfil a passion of "I love stopping and like spending money. It's so much better when it is somebody else's."
