Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Tueiday, May 15, Doris Clark Successful living DEAR DORIS: Recently we have been read- ing about child molesters io your column. Three years ago while visit- ing in-laws, a 13-year-old neigh- bor girl came and sat on my fa- ther-in-law's knee, whereby he proceeded to h u g and fondle her It made me sick because this happened to me when I was 13, by a foster uncle He couldn't keep his hands off me. My father-in-law is always hug- ging and mauling our 16- montho-old son, too, saying that he is ''so feathery soft." Maybe I'm interpreting this incorrectly. Do grandfathers "bother I would tike to adopt a little girl but I would always be afraid my fa- ther-in-law would "handle" her so have decided we won't. Our son is very good and good-nat- ured and I don't want him hurt, ever. Bothered. DEAR BOTHERED- I'm having trouble deciding what you mean by hugging, mauling, fondling. Perhaps your own experience at age 13 was of the more intimate va- riety and left you with consid- erable distaste. My child care consultant points out that it is normal for grandparents to cuddle their grandchildren: and in fact de- sirable and healthy for Hie chil- dren a lot different from "molesting." Molesting involves the satis- faction of perverted sexual needs: which is not generally P O.

We got married five years ago, have two children. The trouble has got year by year. We are jealous, and our fights get bad; my husband says I nag him so much that he has to walk out. He has walked out about a dozen times, and like a soft kitten I let him back. We talked these problems over with counsellors and head shrinkers, but v.-e usually blow up siili Ihsm. Trouble Lady. DEAR TROUBLE LADY: Jealousy happens when a person feels so inferior that they cannot believe another could leva them. How be- ginning a bu'dd-each-other-up campaign? And instead of blowing up with counsellors, listen, to what they have to say If you really want to change, you to resolve not to nag, or be jealous, or nurt each oth- er. Remember, you are hurting yourselves, your children and your future.

I licked an envelope t'other day and remembered Peepers, the horse with the glass eye like myself. Must have been the A tremendous wave of sad- ness swept over me. Peepers at the glue factory. Should write a column, "How Peepers Es- caped from the Glue Facotry." Might cheer me up. Meantime, my lips are seal- ed. Must remember to drink a bottle of pop or something and wash the glue off. The oldtimer, still stunned at the public's reaction to the beaver rip-off, only good beaver is a beaver on my wife's was further stunned when I told him the following: AND YOU CANT BLAME THIS ON THE HUTTERITES! Results of the 1971 farm sur- vey indicate the number of farm operators in the Card- ston MD dropped from 857 to G91 from 1901 to 1971. Holy mackeral, Andy. We're being wiped out! The average area per farm 970 to acres -while the number of acres of pasture land went from about to The number of farms with 2 240 acres or more increased from 49 to 77. All other-sized farms dropped in number. So you see. this is really get- ting serious. The boys are all selling out to the bigger boys. Little guys, like you and me, are getting shoved under the rug. There was also a decrease in the number of tractors and combines. And hopefully, al- though the survey doesn't men- tion this, a decrease in the num- ber of old wire tied hay balers. What a gosh-awful garbanstan- gle! Talk about a shift in produc- tion! Get a load of this there was a marked increase in cattle numbers. Beef cows jumped from to in 1971 (with cow population Tlie pig numbers went up while sheep numbers decreased. Sheep were listed as in 19G1 and only in 1971. The number of acres of bar- ley went from in 1961 to in 1971. There was also an increase in flaxseed, tame hay, rapeseed and oats for hay.
