Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE UTHDRIDOE HERALD Snlurday, Martli 31, Homeowners like to look at trees WINNIPEG (CP1 Erik Jorgeusen. an urban for- estry consultant with the Cana- dian forestry service, says urban dwellers' affection for trees has increased the pur- chase price of landscaped lots. He said cities jio'.v spend con- siderable resources planting trees which have no chance of reaching their biological matu- rity because they have insuffi- cient growing space. He says he doesn't know how important it is for people to see a tree instead of a brick wall when looking out the back win- dow but noled that houses in To- ronto are worth 10 per cent more if they are landscaped.

Whether Uia loved one is par- ent, sibling, spouse or cliild, the closest surviving relatives face perhaps the most trying emo- tional experiences in their lives. The bereaved encounter a host of emotions, many of which are bewildering. Although making arrange- ments for burial and the funer- al may be a profound emotional experience for the bereaved, the most difficult period of ad- justment takes place in the weeks and months that follow. Few individuals arc aware of the deep, often conflicting feel- ings they porience, and physiological symptoms that are likely to accompany grief. Grief is a normal part of life DEATH hand the mourner over to med- ical treatment. We rest assured that after a lapse of time it will be overcome and we look upon any interference with it as inadvisable ful." However may expect to ex- or the psychological and even harm- discussion about whether mourning behavior is lo be considered an illness or .ot is really moot, an exercise L semantics.

Cause of Death Physicians throughout the ages have suspected that grief s a significant cause of sick- ness and death.

It is not unusual for friend and relatives to express alarn that a recently bereaved p-'i son has "gone to whe is merely experiencing nor nal grief. Some experts descrilw nor mal grief as an illness, but oil ers dismiss this concept, citin the fact that grief is actual' 'normal" and self-limiting in the majority of cases. In 1917, Sigmund Freud ob- served that "although grief in- volves grave departures from the normal attitude to life, it never occurs to us to regard it as a morbid condition and rates of morbidity and mortal- ity among bereaved adults of all ages. Such studies lend statistical significance to the possibility that it may not be uncommon for the bereaved to actually die of a "broken heart.' In 1967, Dr. W. Dewi Rees, a general practitioner from Wales, and a colleague, began studying close relatives of 371 residents of Llanidloes who died over a six-year period. In the British Medical Jour nal they reported their evi dealh rate was less than 1 per cent. Even more striking, the deatr rate among widowers and wid ows was 12 per cent during the first year after death of a spouse, while only 1.2 per cen of their counterparts in a con trol group died. Twice as many widowers than widows died. If a spouse or child died sue] enly outside of the home ot lospital, the death rate of sur Ivors went up by a factor o ivc, a phenomenon attribute >le, perhaps, to the sudde shock of the death. Symptoms Among bereaved individual: studies show that such synip .oms as insomnia, trembling nightmares, general nervou ess and depression occur with onsiderably more frequency Jian in control groups. In addition, psychosomatic ymptoms such as headache, omiting, Indigestion, excessive ppetile, chest pain, frequent nfection and general aching re also more prevalent in the jereaved. Sometimes a bereaved pcr- on may suffer from symptoms imilar to those that caused the death ot his relative. The mech- inisin Ibat causes such physi- ilogical manifestations of grief s not fully understood. Specialists do point out, how- ever, that many of the physical complications of grief might bo avoided, or effectively control- ed, if doctors were more awara of recent or anticipated losses that could effect their patieVs- Patients, of course, must be willing to communicate. Many physicians believe that by en- couraging a close doctor-patient relationship during the periods of greatest stress, the bereaved could be helped lo work through his normal grief so it does not become a source of lasting physical or mental incapacity.

The Red Cross annual report said pupils enrolled last year and qualified foi water safety awards. In 1871 enrolled and qualified. The report said the decline was caused by a "dramatical ly declining birth rate and particularly poor summer fron the point of view of weather."
