Joyce Oishi and W'jmdy Moar of Lethbridge and Marianna Baker of Coaldale participated in the parliament which at- tracted some 40 Girl Guides and Rangers throughout the province. tried for several years to get into the Tuxis Boys' P a r 1 i a m e n said Joyce, "but they always re- fused us. So the girls just went ahead and began their own parliament the first of its kind in Canada. j "We operate exactly like a real parliament, and during our last meeting, were actually stricter than the legislative proceedings we in Ed- monton." She explained that each com- pany votes for delegates who attend the parliament, and that every two years a new premier and leader of the opposition are elected as well. "We had Mrs. J. W. Grant MacEwan open the second ses- sion, and during the course of the four-day sittings, we dis- cussed five said Joyce. Included in those resolutions! passed were the reinstatement of capital punishment and stricter control of hunting rights by the police forces. "The idea behind parliament, I think, is to help the girls to stand up and speak in front of lots of other added Joyce, "and it also makes you think about what you're about to say to have back-up reasons and to be able to de- fend your stand." Although the present set-up is restricted to members of the guides and rangers, it was said that 4-H groups might be al- lowed to participate at some later time. "There were two observers with us, and at the end of the sessions they gave as a crit- ic." Joyce said that one future j plan is to incorporate a senate consisting of older girls who were once members of a guide or ranger company, and who would be interested in continu- ing their association in an ad- visory capacity. "Altogether, the parliament was a lot of fun and it was worthwhile just to meet all the new friends." The Alberta Girls' Parliament j is an extension of the existing program, with the following ob- j jectives: j To encourage girls to seek out the challenge of citizenship j participation through leadership training and services: To bring together repre- sentatives to stimulate co-op- erative methods of promoting and improving existing pro- grams; To train members in the arts of logical thoughts and self-expression; educate mem- bers in the process of parlia- ment and the responsibilities of citizenship; To aid in the development and training of leaders in charge of ranger and cadet pro- grams. The third session of the Al- berta Girls' Parliament will be held during the Easter break riext spring. ger role for nurses Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'll be 19 in June and plan to be married in August. I should go to a doctor for a complete physical examina- tion and some advice on birth control. But I just can't bring myself to take off my clothes in front of a strange man. Am I nuts or what? I've made and cancelled two appointments. I became so nervous and sack I just couldn't go through with it. Is there something wrong with my mind? I've never needed to go to a doctor and the appointments were made by a friend who is dis- gusted with me. Please help. Va. DEAR DEL: There are many women doctors these days and I hope you will call your county medical so- ciety and ask them to rec- ommend one. I wouldn't say you are nuts but I WOULD say you have a hang-up that needs ex- ploration. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have just had our first argument. We were married last My mother-in-law has re- quested that we give her a list of the gifts we received including the cash. She says she wants to know who gave what. I say it is none of her busi- ness. My husband is siding with his mother. You are going to make the final deci- sion. In Paradise DEAR T.: It is not out of line for your husband's moth- er to want to know who gave what. "How however, IS none of her business. A list of the gifts should be sent to her, but the cash gifts should be listed simply as DEAR, ANN LANDERS: Tm a 15 year old boy who plays on the high school basketball team. I wonder how many parents whose kids are involved in sports realize what it means to a player when his folks come to the games and cheer him on? It's a lot more fun when a kid knows his mom and dad are out there? It helps him do his best, too. I guess you might call it having some- body special to show off for. A few of the guys on the team don't seem to have any folks. At least you wouldn't know it because they have never shown up for a game. I feel sorry for these guys but I would never say any- thing. My dad and mom come and see me play once in a and when they do I always play a tot better. Please print my letter bill don't use my name because I don't want to hassle any- body. I know lots of guys I play with will secretly hope their parents will read it and take the hint. Thanks, Ann. You're right Cage Cat DEAR CAT: In any kind of sport, inspiration is just as important as perspiration. Thanks for putting it into words.

Send yours to This parrer CALGARY (CP) Develop- ment of nurse 'practitioners' must be given high priority if health-care needs in Canada are to be met, an Edmonton physi- cian said here. Dr. Cliff Nelson, medical di- rector of the nurse practitioner program at the University of Alberta, told the AJberta Asso- ciation of Registered Nurses, that in primary health care "there are still strict limita- tions to what a nurse can do." A nurse isn't functioning in an extended role until she can do a complete physical history and examination, extensive counselling and the like, he said. Nurse practitioners were answer to the "enormous mid- dle-manpower needs" in the medical profession and could deliver "qualified care at a much lower cost." The decision in Canada to study the expanded role of the nurse as a practitioner was bet- ter than the development of a new health profession such as the physician's associate now employed in the United States, Dr. Nelson said. The outlook for the estab- lishment of nurse practitioners in Alberta was not good due to budget cuts at the university level and the difficulty of dem- onstrating a shortage of phy- sicians. But he said there would be a lag only in the development of practitioners, and nurses could look for an extended role in health clinics, emergency de- partments and in isolated and rural areas.
