Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann L Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: One of my friends killed himself a tew days ago. Nobody can figure out wliy lie did it. He had brains, looks, money. And lie was such a nice kid. just can't believe it. I didn't know lu'm very well, but somehow I fee a terrible sense of guilt. I keep thinking if I had gotten to. know him better I might have been able to help him The thought of death has always frightened and depressed me, but the death of a 17-year-old who had a whole great big, wonderful world ahead of him, is too horible U contemplate. Why didn't someone recognize that this boy needed help and reach lu'm before it was too late? Maybe my letter won't make any sense but I just had to express my feelings. Thank you for listening. Port Jervis, N.Y DEAR P.J.: I have no answers. I can only tell you the vast majority of suicides are committed during periods of black depression, or while the person is .under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Suicide is rarely a rational act. One of man's slrongesl instincts is the will to survive. A visit to any hospital will convince you that there is no desire so as man's desire to live. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This little poem is floating around the office. The Hairy Sel won't appreciate it, but old .folks like you and me will think it's pretty funny. Print it if you want to. DEAR TITUS: I'll overlook your reference to "old folks like you and me." Speak for yourself, Chum. The poem" is amusing and I thank you for sending it. Here 'tis: Hembere when hippie meant big in the hips, And a trip involved travel in cars, planes and ships? When pot was a vessel for cooking tilings in And hooked was what grandmother's rug may have been? When fix was a verb that meant mend or repair, And Be-in meant merely existing somewhere? When neat meant well-organized, tidy and clean. And grass was a ground cover, normally green? When groovy meant furrowed with channels and hollows And birds were winged creatures, like robins and swallows? When fuzz was a substance, real fluffy, like lint, And bread came from bakeries and not from the mint. When roll meant a bun, and rock was a stone, And hang-up was something you did with the phone? It's groovy, Man, groovy, but English it's not. Methinks that our language is going to Uukuowu Confidential to Put Down: Even a clock that isn't working is right twice a day. Your boyfriend is too critical. RECEIVES RN Mrj. Anne Maria Granlund (nee Leggett) hoi completed her training at SI. Michael'i Hospital in Lethbridge and recently re- wives' RN in Calgary.

The Homemaker Elizabeth Biirlnimi, District Home Economist An elementary school teacher is heading a success story in feeding school children. It is a success in dollars and cents. For the "kids" it has a greater potential. The head of the food program has said he "can tell you from experience that there is a tremendous relationship be- tween a child's ability to be at- tentive and learn and whether or not he eats a good meal." This is the story of the cafe- terias of a school system: In Norfolk, Virginia, U.S.A., there is a chain of 72 cafeterias which has not increased ils lunch prices since 1958. During these 11 years the chain's sal- ary expenses have tripled. Serving a large volume of lunches each day is necessary if prices are to bo kept down, because volume sales permit volume purchases at less cost, according to the director of the Norfolk school food service pro- gram. Norfolk does deal in large numbers. At the end of Die 19G8-69 school year, nearly school children were served every day. As Norfolk schools particioate in the U.S. Department, of Agri- culture's National School Lunch Program, they serve free or reduced price lunches to chil- dren who are unable to pay the lull price. Last year, nearly 000 almost half of the chil- dren participating in the pro- gram received their meals free or at a reduced rale. The high level of participa- tion which permits bulk buying at lower cost, which in turn allows Ihe meal prices to be kept down, is achieved by mak- ing the food attractive, serving adequate quantities, gaining and keeping the support of fa- culty and supervisors, and not j missing any opportunities to' effect savings when quality is not involved. In 1966, food costs accounted for 63.3 per cent of total costs. In 19G7, food costs were down to 59 09 per cent. In 1968 tlrey decreased to 56 per cent. Because the city of Norfolk recognized the importance of volume buying in maintaining a high-quality school lunch at a low price, it has done what no other city has built a food warehouse for use by the schools. The school food service section will rent the warehouse from the city for a year a lower price than it has been paying for commercial storage and in 10 years will own the building. MR. AND MRS.
