Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE IETHGR1DGE HERALD May 2, 1973 Ann Landers DEAR ANN: I am 66 years old and was widowed two years ago. I am keeping company with a wonderful man who lost his dear wife three years ago. She was a lovely person and a good friend of mine. I cannot bring myself _ to discuss something with him, even though it is driving me to distraction. I'm sure his dentures are to blame. He makes a clicking sound when he comes to words with a "T" and a hissing sound when he comes to words with an "S" Between the click- ing and the hissing I often DEAR ANN LANDERS: I divorced after several years of marriage. My form- er husband's sister and her spouse are still very good friends of mine. Their chil- dren are precious to me. My ex-husband remarried last week.

I'm sure others have noticed this because it's very obvious. I wonder why no one has mentioned it. Is this a permanent problem or can a dentist help him? If you publish my letter I promise to call it to his at- tention and confess I wrote it. Please do us both a favor. Thanks, Ann. Need Your Push. DEAR NEED: Here's the letter. Now hand it to him.

Battle of bulge begins with young VANCOUVER (CP) Dr. Wah-Jun Tze is waging a war on fat. He is concentrating on adoles- cents because he says fat chil- dren can be saved, fat adults rarely can. Dr. Tze is a pediatric endoeri- ncdogist who has developed a program that uses a multi-disci- plinary team of professionals. His program began in February with 20 youngsters aged 10 to 17. It is sponsored by the Chil- dren's Hospital and funded by a Local Initiatives Program grant. Dr. Tze said: "If yen want to do anything about obesity, you j should do it in childhood, be- cause it's very difficult to do anything about it once the fat cells change, that is, at about 20. studies show that 85 per cent of fat kids become fat adults." About 10 par cent of children are obese, he said. Among un- tlie layman always obesity to eating alone. Most cases are combinations, but amazingly enough, good percentage of overweight chil- dren have not got that way through overeating. "Obese children and adoles- cents should be treated as hand- icapped children. They need counselling and encouragement and a full range of physical ac- tivity." Dr. Tze's program attacks the problem c-n several fronts. Pa- tients are given a thorough physical examination. They are asked to make a report of their weekly caloric ir.take and eating and exercise pattams. Then the weight reduction teams draws up i n d i v i d u a 1 diets, counsels the family in good nutritional practices and starts participants in a special exercise program, three days a week, one hour a day. hour is very important, not only to burn up calories, but to improve their mental atti- i del-privileged children espe-j cially, he said, the cause is fre-' saicj School band gets boost RICK ERV1N phcrfo Tuning up the brass will be o lot easier for mem- bers of the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute band with the donation of a cheque which was made yesterdav by Vaughn Hembrcff and Jack Wafburton on behalf of Lethbridge Musical Theatre.

"Obesity is either the result of excessive caloric intake or decreased energy expenditure or both. The trouble is that to use as a model for more extensive projects. He has applied to the federal health de- I partmsnt for a grant to j survey obesity in schools in Vancouver. 1 He has also opened the Chil- dren's Hospital's first obesity clinic for children from birth to age 20. By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor j i The line between sanity and emotional illness is very thin, according to Mrs. A., who has been a lifeline volunteer with Canadian Mental Health Asso- ciation for the past three years. Volunteers in the Community Lifeline Program provide a one-lo-or.e friendship with a per- son recently released from a mental institution or psychia- tric ward, helping the former patient reclaim his or her i place in the community. "A lot of lifeline volunteers probably ask themselves what good they're said Mrs. 6., who has spent some time in a rehabilitation centre for al- coholics, ana describes herself as "having been on both sides. "I would compare it to the story of the Ugly Duckling." Mrs. B. explained. At first "the patient feels like a duck out of water." j COPING NORMALLY When the patient is ready to return to the community "wants to be around normal, everyday people and hear about the price of meat and so on, she gets a chance to identify with the volunteer and gets to see more of the normal ways of coping. "She sees normal, everyday problems are not such big af- fairs and that other people have them too. "I think this is probably the most impoitant role of the vol- said Mrs. B. "The pa- tient can get to see what's nor- mal and the ugly duckling can become the swan she really is." The nurse in Mrs. A. doesn't approve of the attitude of the general public towards pa- tients. ''I think educating the public the biggest thing we have to she said. "Volunteers are hard to even among my friends. It's' the fear of the unknown, or they j say they don't think they can handle it. It gets so frustrating you can't believe A'rs. C. claimed volunteers should get into the field by doing simple chores. "I started with the simple jcb of showing films, and I was so surprised that I liked everybody! "The rewards are Mrs. A- pointed out. "Some- times you don't think you're getting anywhere, and then, out cf the blue, you really do! PERSONAL EXPERIENCE "I've been a said Mr. D., who knows how it feels to come back. Lifeline "has helped mo so much, I figure it would help others." Confined in the provincial hos- pital in Ponoka with a drinking problem, Mr. D. said he finally "decided to help the doctors to hejp myself. It took me two years, but I finally quit." Mr. D. saw the volunteer "as a crutch, someone to depend on. "I've been out since he said. "I still get depression once in a while, but nothing serious. If I do get depressed, I take my guitar and come to the hospital (psychiatric- ward) and play." "I get rewarded just by see- ing these people smile." The mentally ill are "like an said Mrs. A. "They have to reach bottom and admit it and do something about it." To be a volunteer, she said, "you really have to be a friend. Even those who've been in bos- two weeks or a month lose confidence. "To keep these people busy is important. FRIGHTENING WORLD "They have to be said Mrs. B., speaking from her own experience. "Every- thing is too frightening.
