Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Iriuridoy, May 21, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGt HERALD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was interested in the letter from the girl whose boyfriend asked her to have a butterfly tatooed on her hip. It seems the kook wanted a'highly per- sonal symbol of her undying love and devotion something no one but he could see. Please tell the girl not to be a fool. Four years ago I had my backside tatooed to prove to my fiance that I'd do anything for him. We are married now but not a day goes by that I don't regret my lunacy. I, too, thought nobody but my true love would see it, but I was wrong. A lot of people have seen it. When I was hospitalized for my babies I was the talk of the maternity ward. Last year I joined an exercise class and had to drop but when the word got around. Everybody wanted to see the "tatooed lady." I felt like a circus freak; I can't describe the misery this ridiculous thing has caused me. Please tell that gal to prove her undying love and devotion some other way or better yet let him prove his by dropping the idea. Under The Skin DEAR S. U. S.: One might call this exchange "The Tail of Two Sitties." Thanks for the testimonial. I hope your letter shook the Dickens out of her. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What has happened to deceny, kindness, and love of one's fellow man? Every day I hear about another incident that causes me to mourn for the way our world is going. This morning my 'dear, sweet neighbor received the crudest blow imaginable. Her youngest son underwent surgery a few days ago. He was a lovable, bright-eyed boy of IS. The operation was a success, according to the doctor, but complications set in and he took a turn for the worse. His parents were with him until p.m. last night. He seemed to be resting comfortably. The doctor assured them he was out of danger. This morning at 8 a.m. his mother phoned the hospital to ask the floor nurse if the patient had had a good night. She was told there was no point in trying to locate the floor nurse because "the boy died early this morning." The mother sank to her knees aiid her husband took the receiver from her hand. How can people be so brutal? What can be done to prevent such acts of cruelty? Please print the name of the hospital. I Hunk the world ought to know about things like this. At Heart Friend DEAR FRIEND: It wouldn't be fair to print Hie name of the hospital. Why give the whole hospital a black eye- because of one stupid employee? Most hospitals have a standard procedure for informing the family of a death. A nurse phones and .says the patient Is "very low" and suggests that they come to the hospital. When the family arrives, a doctor or.clergyman someone who can handle the situation, gently breaks the news. Your neighbors should make an appointment with that hospitals' chief administrator and inform him of the heartless manner In which they were tnld of their son's death. Perhapi they can spare eomeoBe else.

PHONS 3J7-5767 Action Course Set For Vanier Institute By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) Van- ler Institute of the Family is spreading its wings. The new creature, unlike the old, takes definite stands on social issues. It is also trying to tell Cana- dians that it is not a Victorian institution bound to one con- cept of the family. The change has come in re- cent months following several years of criticism from people Who urged more action. Institute members say other factors in the change are the natural growth of the institute and strong leadership by Mrs. A. F. W. Plumptre, its presi- dent. The institute was set up in 1965 on an annual budget under the patronage of then Governor-G e n e r a 1 Georges Vanier. Mrs. Vanier became patron on her hus- band's death in 1967. It is backed by the federal and provincial governments plus private donations with an ag- gregate nest-egg of about The institute has been main- ly a fact-gathering body. It has sponsored original re- search in such fields as the family in agricultural society and the laws and Uie family. Stewart Sutton, 60, appoint- ed secretary-general in 1966, says years were spent getting organized. Two more years marched by while the organization tried to find out from its researchers where it should concentrate. .Some members of the insti- tute were unhappy at the pace. Dr. Benjamin Schlesinger, professor of social work at the University of Toronto, said in 1968 that the institute was "sitting on its hands" in re- searching the problems of the family. Discussion groups at the in- stitute's 1968 annual meeting said they wanted more action They wanted the institute to get into the area of policy. The theme was taken up by Dr. Phillipe Garigue, dean of the school of social work at the University of Montreal, in THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes 'Pet cemeteries are becoming Very popular, and now your Aunt Mollie wants to use one... Keavensl...Imagine trying to get your Uncle Fred into one jusr to save tnoneyl" a paper to the conference of Canadian Roman Catholic bishops just before the annual meeting of the institute in April. He called for a family policy for Canada. But the institute had al- ready started changing course by that time. It presented a brief to the Senate poverty committee de- claring the poor cannot better themselves because of dis- crimination In the labor mar- ket, the consumer market ed- ucation, health and bousing services. A careful review of future taxation policies was sug- gested to ensure tot low-in- come groups would not be harder lu't than they are now. In an interview, Mr. Sutton said the institute's board of directors is considering presenting a brief to the Com- mons finance committee on the government white paper on tax reform. The brief would deal with the impact of tax proposals on the family. Tackling the problem of supplementary child care, the Institute decided at its recent annual meeting to urge that such help be made available to all Canadians. Supplementary child care includes day care centres, nursery schools, licensed day care homes and after-school programs. The board of directors is also working on a statement of long-term goals which will make clear that the institute is not tied to any one view of 'the family. Some members say the In- stitute was associated with a Victorian view of the family, though this was never adopted as policy. ADAPTS TO CHANGE Mrs. Plumpfre said in a telephone interview from her West Hill, Ont, home near Toronto that there could be many types of family. People living in communes might be regarded as fami- lies, she said, adding that the institute must be open to changing forms of the family in society. (INTERIORS) LTD. 912 3rd S. Phone 328-5777 The budget of about a year is the interest of the fund of more than received from the federal and provincial governments and private donations. The f e d e r a 1 government made an initial grant of and has promised to make an additional lump-sum grant matching other contri- butions at the end of the insti- tute's campaign for money in late 1972. Mr. Button said the institute will not be supporting as many research projects as it once did. It will be concen- trating more on providing in- formation on family matters to interested groups and call- ing seminars and conferences on family problems, he said. Financial support might also be offered for pilot pro- jects working with families across the country. Mr. Button says criticism of the institute for failing to speak out on social issues was fair. He said he regards the new emphasis on public state- ments as more a change in policy than hi practice. The change pleases many members. Arnold Heeney, Canadian chairman of the International Joint Commission, said he hopes the institute will con- tinue to be progressive. He had been pressing for more emphasis on youth- only three of the 125 members are under hoped thu would gradually be accom- plished.
