Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 16, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Moy 16, 1973 THE IETHBRID6I HfftALD Strange protester Herb Gilbert of Vancouver appears as a man from Venus and joins a demonstration of earth mortals in an effort to stop the French holding nuclear tests in the Pacific. Several of the protesteis, who gathered at the French Embassy in London, England, later set out to walk to Paris. Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: A while back you printed a column inviting readers to drop you a card and let you know which were the ten best years of their lives I was particularly interested be- cause as a psychologist at the Meinger Foundation I un- dertook a similar project. Only my question was. "What years do you consider the best years of life9'' I asked 100 young people (16 to 26) and 300 old people (70 The results among the young were predictable. They thought the best years were the because this meant being unencumbered by parental pressures and an opporutnity to enjoy freedom from heavy responsibilities. The old people, on the other hand, tended to feel the 40's DEAR ANN LANDERS: I can tell from your column that you know a lot of doc- tors and like them. Please heln my dad. He is a doctor and can use some help. This morning Dad got a call 8t from someone who wanted to catch him when he wasn't busy. He wasn't busy then.

Many such people considered those years to be best because their major obligations in life had been fulfilled. Old age, to them, represented a time to relax' and enjoy life. Tra- vel was mentioned frequently as one of the pleasures of old age I am now convinced that the stereotype of old age as being a gloomy, depressing time is no longer an accurate one. Most old people think old age is a terrible time, for everyone except themselves. A Hirsch, Ph.D DEAR DR HIRSCH: What a cheerful note for the Geritol set! In behalf of the senior citizens.

Golden age of telephone recalled VANCOUVER (CP) Like so many other modern conven- iences, the telephone has fallen from a golden age of wonder to be taken for granted and sworn at when it doesn't work pro- perly. But Canadians cherish the days when the telephone was still a marvel and the phone company was every- body's friend. They are members of the Tel- ephone Pioneers, an organiza- tion of phone company veterans. Its only membership qualifica- tion is that applicants must have had 20 years' service with a telephone company in Canada or the United States. Most members are the girls who manned the switchboards, speaking calmly through emergencies like fires, floods, robberies, and even war. And the women remember the days with fondness, even though there were times which would probably make the modern tele- phone operator throw down her headset and walk out the door. INVASION Grace Bryce, an employee of B.C. Telephone for 22 years, was a long-distance operator in Vancouver just after Pearl Har- bor. "The day after Pearl Harbor, we thought the Japanese would be on our doorstep any said her co-worker, Agnes Faulkner. The two women described those tense days this way: "We were all issued with hard hats, and the windows were blacked out so most of the time we were groping our way around in a half light.' said Miss Faulkner. "Every day a different long distance operator was given sealed added Mrs. Bryce. ''If an alert had sounded, we were given three minutes to open the envelope, which con- tained coded orders, to phone and check the orders with de- fence headquarters and to ad- vise every major centre in B.C" All this for about for a six-day week. An operator in B.C today would make more than that m two davs. Prompt Attention Given to Moil Orders BENEFIT SHOES LTD. 615 4th Ave. S. Phone 327-7300 j Opim Thurt. and Frf.
