Edmonton opening an obesity clinic EDMONTON (CP) The Royal Alexandra Hospital is opening the city's first obesity clinic to help overweight people lose those extra pounds. It will even help them find out why they became overweight in the first place, said H. E. Porter, assistant executive director. Mr. Porter is In charge of the hospital's finances and he was the one who sold the board ot governors the idea of setting up the clinic, explaining: "It won't cost us anything.'1 Existing facililies and slaff can handle the program, Mr. Porter said. And it would be al- most as cheap for those who at- tend. The charge for the 12- week program will be for a diet booklet. Mr. Porter said the Idea nf the clinic originated with a Uni- versity of Toronto food scientist who was in Edmonton recently and the fact that, two Calgary hospitals have tried similar clin- ics and found them successful. "The purpose of the clinic would be to provide the com- munity with sound nutritional knowledge as an aid to better health which is not available i through the commercial weight-reduction outlets." Participants will be tauglit the simple science behind why peo- ple get fat, what they can do about it and what Uiey should eat. he said. Each class will be limited to 25 and those who arc grossly overweight or who have metabolic problems will not be accepted. Mr. Porter said applicants have lo have their doctors' ap- proval.

She has a severe case of over-compensatory aggressiveness plus other psychoses due to her feelings of in- feriority. The entire family has tried to make her comfort- able but I fear we have failed. Our son and his wife were among the guests nt a dinner parly at our home the other evening and the conversation was light and amusing. Out of a clear blue sky our daughter- in-law screamed, "You can all see how cruel my husband is to me. He is so brutal I can't live like this much longer." Everyone was shocked at this outburst. Her husband non- chalantly changed the subject by asking one of the guests how he enjoyed his trip to the national parks last summer. After dinner I took my son aside and told him to see that his wife gets professional help. He replied, "You're getting crotcliey in your old age, Mother. She didn't hurt anyone. There's nothing wrong with Ingrid." Who is the sick one? Or are there two? Wall DEAR WALL: Sounds like two to me. But keep out of it. The girl may become progressively sicker without treatment and then hopefully, your son win have to acknowledge the fact she is ill. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My heart ached for the girl who signed her letter "Heartsick Erma." She said her mother screamed at her all the time and no matter how hard she tried she couldn't do anything right. There were constant com- parisons beteween her and a beautiful older sister who vras "everybody's pet." Erma went lo sleep on a wet pillow every night. My mother was very much like Erma's mother but I didn't let her turn me into an insecure, whimpering nebbish. I kept telling myself, "Nothing is wrong with you. It's your mother who is inadequate. Don't let her grind you down Use your brains and talent. Show the world you have Hie stuff." I was determined to amount lo something. I studied hard and accepted every challenge that came my way. I refused to waste my time and energy hating, feeling sorry for myself or getting even. Today I am 2fi and married to a marvellous man. I now know that my mother was sick the victim of a cruel and punishing moiher herself. She couldn't help it. Don't ask me where I got the wisdnn to handle my problem at age 14. I don't know. But I'm passing on what I've learned to all the Ermas in the world. DEAR VICKIE: I hope the Ermas listen. Respect for CALGARY (CP) Before women are truly liberated, have to start respecting other women's brain power and accomplishments, Chris t i n a Newman, associate editor of Macleans Magazine, said here. "We need to support each she told Ihe Women's Canadian Club. "There are so many ways we unwittingly im- pede each other's progress." Women were often the first to shy away from using a fe- male doctor, lawyer or profes- sor. "On the whole, women don't think much of each other's brain Mrs. Newman said. "They distrust each others accomplishments." She said the mutual distrust mong women is the major factor preventing more female candidates from entering Cana- dian politics. "We must work for common goals. To me, that's what (lie women's liberation movement is all about." Bike problem VICTORIA (CP) Some city stores are interested only in selling as many 10-speed bicy- cles aa possible, not in seeing :liem properly assembled o r helping the buyer use them pro- perly, says Mrs. John Clay, president of the Victoria branch of the Consumers Association of Canada. "It seems that the only one to explain is the repair she said. "The salesman is so busy selling he's neglected to find out anything about the bike." CHESS CURE VANCOUVER (CP) Rutti Cardoso, chess champion of Brazil, says there should be a chess board in every school "so young people could leam to be patient and to think logically." In Vancouver for the 1971 Cana- dian opsn chess championsljips, she said: "I think if more peo- ple would play chess there wouldn't be any wars; they could resolve their troubles on the board."
