Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Dear Ann Landers: I am 19 years old. My problem Is one I thought would go away in time. But Instead it is getting worse. When I was a freshman in high school a boy I knew was killed in an automobile accident. I hardly knew him and to this day I do not remember what he looked like. Two weeks ago I was in the cemetry visiting my aunt's grave. I accidentally saw this boy's headstone. I was drawn to it like a magnet. I felt such a deep sense of sadness I cannot describe it. I have returned to his grave every day since. Something makes me go. Yesterday I decided to stay away and I was a nervous wreck all day. I had to go to the cemetery after supper. Of course I didn't tell my folks where I was going. They would have thought I was crazy. In fact, I'm beginning to think maybe I am a little nuts. Can you tell me what is causing this strange behavior and what I can do about it? - Jefferson City, Mo. Dear Jeff: You are gripped by a compulsion for which there is no rational basis. The experts say such behavior is caused by guilt which may be totally unrelated to the situation that has you hooked. If this urge to visit the cemetery daily persists I suggest you discuss it with a therapist.   �  DEAR ANN LANDERS: I hope you won't consider this problem too macabre to print. I do need help. For the last few years we have been living next door to a family with a bad history of kidney disease, The father and two uncles died of nephritis and now two of the children have this illness. One boy is alive today only because of a kidney machine. As a result of my friendship with this family I have decided to leave my vital organs to an organ bank, with the understanding that they can have any part of me they deem use able to save the life of another person. My father who is now 69 heard of my commitment and announced that if he should outlive me he would not allow my remains to be disturbed. He said he would not be able to sleep at night thinking about it. He also insists this is against the Catholic religion. Is it? My mind is made up, Ann, but I'd like to know how I caan prevent a relative from interfering with my wishes. - E. L., Worcester, Mass. DEAR E. L.: A Uniform Anatomical Gift Act has been passed in 48 states. This law- makes it possible for individuals to donate their organs or their bodies after death. The commitment is legal and binding and cannot be changed by relatives. All that is required is that the donor obtain and carry a Uniform Donor card. If a donor should change his mind at some time during his life, he need only destroy the card. Donor cards can be obtained by writing to the National Kidney Foundation, Box 800, New York, New York 10010. Your father is wrong about the Catholic religion frowning an this practice. The Church, in fact, considers it an act of generosity. The person who makes this decision gives the greatest gift of all - the gift of life. I hope you and millions of others will send for your donor card today. It could mean the difference between life and death for another human being.

"We cannot survive as individuals by ourselves, but only through organization," Mr. Manuel told the Alberta Native Women's Society convention. Native people have been denied their rights and have been fed injustice by the government, he said. Many native youths across the country are trying to organize to effect changes. Changes a> a necessary in the educational system, he said. Mr. Manuel said 94 per cent of natives don't complete their grade 12 because "it tries to teach them to forget their Indian ways. "The present educational system is to blame for the dropouts." Mr. Manuel, who did not finish high school, said, "I won't go back to school until it changes and I as a native can hold my head high," Joe Blyn, a representative of the Edmonton - based Alberta Native Communications Society, only has Grade 4 education and said "I'm a self-educated man." Like Mr. Manuel, Mr. Blyn felt native people have problems because they encounter difficulties in living in a white man's society. "My biggest beef is against institutions (jails)," Mr. Blyn said. Sixty per cent of people in Canadian jails are native people, yet they only make up three per cent of the nation's population. They are put in jail because they couldn't function in white society, and then are thrown out of jail only to return be- love is 3-a� .,, letting her read the newspaper first.
