Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I agree with you that the tipping system in our country is lousy that employees should pay the people who work for them and not pass the burden on to the customer But so long as the system exists, waitresses must depend on it to get by. I am no longer a waitress, but being one for six years was a great learning experience for me. It taught me to be considerate of others. For example: I remember how four and five secretaries used to sit at a table for two hours at lunch, ask for third cups of coffee, and leave 15% each even though they were making at least a month. It never occurred to them that they were tying up a table that otherwise might be used by two or even three other groups whose tips would help a waitress pay her rent. Of course, a tip is a gift but so is thoughtfulness and consideration. Thanks for letting me sound off. No Name Dear N.: I'm sure you spoke for thousands of waiters and waitresses from coast to coast, and on behalf of them all, I thank you. Dear Ann Landers: I am 43, divorced, and living with my widowed mother who is in her 70s. While I was married, Mother lived alone in an apartment near us. I saw her several times a week, took her grocery shopping, to the "octor, etc. When I was divorced she suggested that we buy a house together. She made the down payment and I have been taking care of the mortgage and upkeep I have since met a woman I want to marry. Mother is against the marriage on religious grounds. The questions I need answered are these: Do I have a moral obligation to continue to live with my mother since we bought the house together? It would be impossible to move my new wife in with us because they are not compatible. Also, I will have PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT (Plqwd UntH Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY p.a custody of my children soon and my mother doesn't get along with them because she despises their mother. I realize now I made a mistake buying this house with Mother. She can't keep it up without my help. What's more, she is doing her best to make me feel guilty about suggesting that she live alone again. Any answers? Too Many Commitments. Dear T.M.C.: The house must be sold so your mother can get her down payment back and you can have a life with your children and the woman of your choice. Of course, you'll have to help set Mother up in a new apartment and continue to take her marketing, to the doctor, etc. You owe her this, but you don't owe her your life. Dear Ann Landers: My brother's daughter was married recently He and his wife gave a large buffet reception honoring the bride and groom. My husband and I and our three children chose to stay home We did not attend either the wedding or the buffet. Now the whole family is mad at us My mother says we should have notified them that we wouldjiot attend I say since it was a buffet and not a sit- down dinner, it wasn't necessary. Mother says a wedding gift was in order, but I've been told that if you don't attend the wedding you don't owe a present (I did give my niece a shower gift.) The whole family says we are wrong. I say an invitation does NOT obligate the recipient. Please reply m the paper so the relatives can see it No Social Blunderer Dear Blunderer: Here's my reply, but when you see it you'll wish you hadn't written to me An invitation does NOT obligate the recipient to attend OR buy a gift, but it certainly carries the obligation of a response, whether it's a sit-down dinner or a picnic in a park. The fact that you and your family would choose to stay at home rather than attend the wedding of your niece sends out some extremely negative vibes. I sense enormous hostility between your family and the family of the bride An apology would only be a beginning at patching this up. You've given them a real clop in the chops and mere words don't change things.

CAMBRIDGE, ONT (CP) Wendy Bolduc was soothing her newborn baby on New Year's Eve when suddenly the infant went limp in her arms and stopped breathing "I patted her a bit and jostled her and she started to breathe said Mrs Bolduc, but three-month-old Christine stopped breathing several times since then and must be watched constantly Christine may be one of the few babies with sudden infant death syndrome still alive, say doctors at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children The disease, also referred to as apnea, strikes mainly premature infants who suddenly stop breathing and die quietly, seemingly for no reason, in their sleep Dr Heather Bryan of the Hospital for Sick Children said she believes Christine is the first full-term baby in Canada to have survived an apnea attack She is also the first to be sent home from hospital with a little machine to monitor her breathing. Before obtaining the machine, Christine's parents used to sleep and watch Christine in shifts, constantly monitoring her breathing They were reliving the nightmare of another daughter, six-months-old Brenda, dying of the same disease earlier Dr Bryan and her husband Dr A. C. Bryan have researched the mysterious disease for two years but admit they are "still very ignorant about it She said some babies may have an immature breathing pattern Often premature babies don't breathe as regularly as adults do and they sometimes stop breathing for 10 to 15 seconds Many start breathing again themselves but those who don't become victims of sudden infant death syndrome Asked if there are symptoms of the disease, Dr Bryan said "If a mother notices irregular breathing patterns in her baby, particularly just after feeding, she should discuss it with her doctor."
