Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our widower father will be cele- brating his 65th birthday in a few months and my sister and I want to give a surprise party for him. The other evening we sat down with our two aunts to discuss the guest list and ran into a fantastic pile of problems. It seems that several mem- bers of Dad's family are not on speaking terms with Mom's relatives. Also, some of Dad's relatives do not speak to each other. We considered a variety of seating arrangements and various techniques for staggering the hours so that the battlers would not encounter one another. K became terrifically compli- cated and after four hours of switching and shifting, many problems were still unresolved. At midnight my husband inarched into the living room in his bathrobe and announced, "This is ridiculous! Invite them all and to hell with it." The aunts insisted it would be catastrophic and would result in raw feelings and unpleas- antness for many people, especially Dad. What do you say? DEAR LEE: I'm with your husband. If any relatives does not approve of the guest list he can leave. Moreover, I predict his departure would serve only to improve the calibre of the party. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son is three years old. For the past six months he has been waking up between 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning screaming. He says he is afraid of the dark. I try to comfort him and tell him there is noth- ing to be afraid of but it usually takes about 15 minutes to quiet him down. This past week my husband has been very short-tempered about these nightly outbursts. He works hard and needs his sleep. He says it's my fault because I have been catering to the boy thst from now on the child will get a hard spanking when he screams at night and then he'll learn not to bother us. The last three nights it has been worse than ever. After the spankings the child cried for at least a half an hour. I have pleaded with my husband to leave a small light on but he says the boy will be a sissy, that he has to learn there is nothing to be afraid of. This problem is creating trouble between my husband and me. I wish you would tell me who is right and what should be done about the child's fear of the dark and the nightly screaming Mother. DEAR MOTHER: The child's fear of the dark and the nightly screaming spells are symptoms of other problems. I hope you can persuade your husband to go with you to a counsellor to discuss it. If he won't go go without him. I suggest a dim light in the boy's room until he settles down. The spankings should be terminated immediately. They will only add to the child's anxieties and he has enough already. (1972 Publishers-Hall Syndicate) BALLET FASHIONS National Ballet dancers in Toronto are as much at home in'-' jeans as in a ballerina's tutu. A Canadian fashion house has presented each dancer in the company with a pair of jeans for an upcorning tour to Europe. The dancers leave Toronto Saturday and will perform in Paris, Brussels, Monte Carlo, Stuttgart, Glasgow and London. (CP Wirephoto) Equal rights for women non-existent EDMONTON (CP) A sym- posium on women and the law was told here women are dis- criminated against in such areas as immigration, prosti- tution, property, equal pay and opportunity, marriage and div- orce. Retired Senator Therese Cas- grain of Montreal told the meeting, held in connection with the opening of a new Uni- versity of Alberta law centre, that married women do not have equal rights. There is a lack of recogni- tion of housewives as part of the labor force and therefore they are not entitled to pen- sions under the Canada or Que- bec Pension Plans, she said. Jean McBean Worton, a gra- duating law student, told the symposium that the present pay law is "virtually and there is no federal equal opportunity law for women. Teacher wants noise EDMONTON fCP) Teacher Sharon Groot admits that life in the classroom gets hectic with all the students snapping their fingers or yelling their names. She gets used to it. Miss Groot, 28, is blind and the class- room noise is her idea. "I get the students to snap their fingers or say their names if they want to answer a ques- she said. "But when there are 10 fingers snapping and 10 people yelling names it gets a bit difficult." In general, having a blind teacher doesn't really bother the students, Miss Groot said, and "it doesn't really bother mo either." "They learn pretty quickly what to expect." Miss Groot, blind since birth in Edmonton, was taught her Grade 1 lessons by her mother who bought all the textbooks and punched out each letter in braille for her. She attended Grades 2 through 11 at a school for the deaf and blind in Vancouver, then entered a public school add completed Grade 12 "with a lot of help from the students, teach- ers and my mother." Carrie Groot not only helped her daughter in university but she enrolled as well. Her daughter received her bachelor of arls degree from the University of British Colum- bia, took two years of post-grad- uate work but was not allowed to take teacher training in Van- couver. She was accepted at the Uni- versity of Alberta and later found no problem getting a job at Calvin Christian school, "mainly because they needed a French teacher." Miss Groot, who teaches lan- guage arts and French to Grades, 7, 8 and 9, said her stu- dents might initially think they can get away with more be- cause she is blind. However, as with all other teachers, a relationship of trust snd respect has to be estab- lished.
