Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta May 1970 THE LETHIRIDGE HERALD -17 Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: There are so many sick boys and girls wandering around the country these (Jays. The other afternoon while shopping in downtown San Francisco I paused1 to talk to several haunted-looking children as they shuffled aimlessly along the streets. them why they left home. One said, "I got tired of the hassle with my folks." Another said, "Because it was time." A third replied, "To be free." Free to do what? 'W beg for money to buy food or liquor or drugs? Free ti spend the night having sex without explaining why they didn' come home last night? Free to gang-shack in some lice- infested pad or in an abandoned1 house? "Go you told the girl who wrote to say she had made a terrible mistake and was ashamed to face her family. How right you were, Ann! I wish that girl's letter and your answer could be printed on the front page of every newspaper in the country. I've seen a great deal of life and hard times but I cannot recall a period in our country's history when there was such a serious lack of understandihi between the generations. How can we bridge the gap? Wha is the answer? DEAR MOTHER I have no answer: But one continuous thread runs through all these sad stories. No communication Parents who have established an open line of communication EARLY seem to have less trouble with their teen-agers Some teens who exhibit far-out behavior are trying to show off for their peers. They want to be part of the group accepted. But the runaway kids, the ones who can't stay in school or hold a job the lost lambs who are bumming around the country, zonked on drugs and begging for hand outs are severely- disturbed. They need psychiatric coun- selling for their sick minds and medical care for their sick boides. DEAR ANN LANDERS: For a lady who gives advice you have a lot to learn. A recent column gave me and the girls I work with our biggest laugh of the year. Where did you get the crazy idea that "a gentleman never I know more about "gentlemen" than you do, seeing as how I've held bands with about in these last 16 years. I'm a manicurist. Do you know the favorite subject of clients? Well i ain't baseball, honey. It's women. And they aren't talking about their wives. To listen to these blabber-mouths, no woman ever said, "NO." I've heard some stories aboui prominent and fancy married ladies in this town that I wouldn't repeat to my best friend. What shocks me is the way these guys name names and places without giving the slightest thought to who might be under the towel in the next chair. It could be the husband of one of these dollies, for all they know. Please, Ann, drop that line, "a gentleman never tells." They tell plenty. Cuticle Clara. DEAR CUTE: I still say a gentleman never tells. Those barber-shop big-mouths are not gentlemen. They are cheap gossips who are violating a very basic rule of manhood. Confidential to Calamity Jane: The real calamity Is your negative approach to everything. Instead of crying because the bottle is half empty, why not find joy in the fact the bottle is half full? You're not going to change the bottle but you can certainly change your outlook. MONTREAL, May 28th. Keep your menu simple and your Graduation Party or any will be more enjoyable.

AMONG THE VAST NUMBER of pleasant letters I receive about the products I recommend, many of them are about Templeton's T-R-C. These letters corns from men and women of all ages and relate their experience in obtaining long-sought relief through Templeton's T-R-C. Some find help quickly while others have to persist wisely until they have won freedom from the excru- ciating agony of neuritic, arthritic or rheumatic pain. And, too, many have found they get fast, DOUBLE-ACTION relief by taking T-R.C intern- ally and applying Templeton's FLAME-cream Liniment externally. Both these fine products are at your family drugstore.

Calorie Queen Of Canada Now Four Feel Slimmer OTTAWA (CP) Maude Hutchison is determined to go to the next calorie-counters con- vention as a 135-pound one. Viewed from her experience In the last year, her chances are good. Recently she'won the crown as national calorie queen at the Canadian Coast-to-Coast Calorie Counters convention in Hamil- ton. She had lost 101 pounds in a year. It wasn't easy winning the competition against the other members of the organiza- tion. Losing the weight wasn't easy either. Miss Hutchison, who oame to Ottswa from Halifax seven years ago, says she started to gain weight as a teen-ager. "Actually I was a very small she said in an interview. "I had a very happy childhood and I can't think of any prob- lems that might have caused me to eat as I did." In January, 1969, at the age of 26, she realized something had to be done. She weighed 313 pounds and hauii't been feeling well for four or five years. WEIGHT MELTED OFF "I was afraid to go to a doc- tor. Then one day I looked at myself in the mirror and said had enough. 'Then I started looking around for a club I could join where there were other people with the same problem. I joined the Wispy Willows at the end of January, and at that lime I wore a size 54. Now I'm down to a 2214." Miss Hutchison says she has lost four feet in her total mea- surements. Inches melted off her hips, arms, thighs and neck. She saw a doctor and he ad- vised her to stick to a diet of be- tween 800 and calories a day. She finds she can lose best when she maintains her calorie intake at 900. Her diet now consists mainly of high-protein foods such as eggs, meat and fish, with plenty, of fresh vegetables and fruits. She also exercises. One of the nice things about losing weight is being able to walk into a store and buy i dress off a rack, she says. BINGO Scandinavian Hall 229 12lh St. "C" N.

Sorry No One Under 16 Years of Age Allowed Enjoyable Education First, Basis For Tree9 School SASKATOON (CP) "Edu- cation should be enjoyable." "There's no such thing as es- sential knowledge." These two statements are part of the basis on which a "free'' school is scheduled to operate in Saskatoon this fall. Free doesn't mean in the monetary sense. The school will not be part of the public school system so it is planned to have :ees geared to income. But free does mean it will challenge all the basic educa- tional ideas although all the minimal requirements will be met and surpassed. Plans call for the school to open in a house in September with some 30 children between the ages of 6 and 16. There will. be two full-ame :eachers, plus volunteers. By early spring 15 persons already had applied to teach. If there are more than 30 students, a second house will be opened. The free school will empha- size small numbers, personal relationships and "doing your own thing." Schools of this type have already been started ir other parts of Canada. SEEK HIGH LEVEL Dr. Doris Dyck, one of thi founders, said: "We'll teach what the child i curious about, with much atten tion paid to what is going or outside the classrooms becausi the classroom is no longer thi sole guide to education." Ray Kopas, another founder added; "Other free schools are lesi academically oriented than this one will be, but the level of aca demic excellence expectet should be such that children transferring to a regular schoo system will have no problem." If a child is unable to read he'll be taught; students who must write Grade 12 f inal exam inations will be prepared to do so; in other words, Mr. Kopas said, all minimal requirements will be met and surpassed. The child will do what be wants to with no predeterminec rate or goals set for him.

BARRIERS IMPORTANT Relationships are importan in a school like this. Having more than 30 pupils in one place would only increase the barriers between people the school hopes to break down. What's wrong with traditiona schools? "There are too many cnies tions they don't answer abou living, learning, creating your own meanings for Mr. Kopas said. "Kids in regular schools havi their own natural energy, but i isn't flowing and they finis] feeling confused and bitter. "It takes strength to live In today's world and schools don.' provide the means to acquire i OD theif own; "Learning Involves interac- tion and there's not much time for that in the schools because everyone's too busy trying to cope and get their business done.
