Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Moy 19, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 15 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'll bet there isn't a person In your reading audience who thinks IB hasn't been taken by a mail order house at one time or another. Maybe when they read this they will have a better' understanding of why they didn't get their gift or merchandise. I work for a company that deals in mail order premiums. We handle hundreds of items. Some of our merchandise is free. Most of it is for sale. I wish the complaining public would spend one day at ray station. Here is what they would see. Letters containing money but no coupon and no address. Unsealed envelopes which con- tain a coupon but no money. Coupons with money, but nobody can read the writing on the coupon. Envelopes which bear a semilegible name. Example: Mary Smith, Greenville. No clue as to whether she lives in Greenville, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsyl- vania, Mississippi, South Carolina or Kentucky. You wouldn't believe the mail we forward to other com- panies at our own expense. We figure we might as well send the letters to the right company as send it back to the customer. For a country that has the highest literacy rate in the world, there are sure a lot of people who can't follow a simple set of Creek DEAR BATTLE: Your letter is not news to me. Every week I get dozens of stamped envelopes from readers request- ing personal replies. They address their envelopes to Ann Lan- ders instead of themselves! You are wrong about the United States' having the highest literacy rate in the world. We are the richest country in the world but Japan is the most literate. Ashamed? So am I. t t DEAR ANN LANDERS: You are going to be judge of this family argument. All parties concerned have agreed to accept your word as final. Our 14-year-old son, Paul, left the dinner table last night to answer the telephone. We'heard him say, "Yes, I'm going to the track meet but I'm eating my supper right now and then I've got a lot of homework to do. Good-by." He hung up and returned to the table, red-faced and silent. His younger brother piped up, "I'll bet that was Debbie. She sure calls up here a lot." Paul didn't answer but it was obvious that the guess was a good one. I men told Paul I thought he had been too abrupt with the girl and if .he didn t want to take her to the track meet he could have been more gracious about it. The older boy said Paul had handled it right "girls who call up boys deserve to be clobbered.' Furthermore, he said, "if you are half-way decent to a girl, she thinks she owns you and you can't get rid of her." Am I right or are the boys Maggie DEAR MOTHER: Ten years ago I would have sided with you. Today I'm with the boys. Young girls have become so aggressive since you and I were young, Maggie, its enough to scare a kid out of three year's growth. If Paul wants to be abrupt with girls who chase after him, let Mm alone. If you teve trouble getting along with your parents if you can't get them to let you live your own life, send Mr Ann Landers' booklet, "Bugged By Parents? How To Get More Freedom." Send 50 cents in coin with your request and a long, stamped, self-addressed envelope. JEWELRY I repair PEARLS RESTRUNO IABY SHOES BRONZED ALL RINO REPAIRS ERICKSEN'S JEWELLERY McFarlemd Bid.

Common Sense Pre-Schoolers Learn Safety Program By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor AURORA, Ont. (CP) Treat your pet gently, be kind, help mother to feed and look after your pet, so he will be in a good humor and won't bite anyone. When you ride your tricycle on the sidewalk, do not smash or bang into other tricycles or other toys, trees or people, as you can break your tricycle or hurt yourself or someone else badly. They may not be the most important, but they are among the safety rules taught in a two-week summer c.iurse for pre-schoolers put on by the safety council in this com- munity just north of Toronto. The project was started by two young mothers, Shirley Faudemer and Betty Peder- sen. Mrs. Pedersen says they felt a pre-school safety pro- gram would be useful. Aurora is split by a highway and many of its people live in two child-filled subdivi- sions. Mrs. Pedersen says they used no guides to set up the common sense. "I said I'd do home and water and Shirley would do tricycles, and we looked over New Officers Elected For Quota Club ELEANOR HOLROYD President Mrs. Hanna Rea of Medicine Hat, the District Governor of District No. 11 of Quota Inter- national Incorporated, was a guest of the local club to in- stall the officers for the en- suing year. The officers are: President, Mrs. Eleanor Hol- royd; 1st vice president, Mrs. Marjorie Fleming; Zod vice- president, Mrs. Margaret Ingie; recording secretary, Mrs. Ann Gray; corresponding secretary, Miss Jean Ringland; assistant corresponding secretary, M r s. Joy Pinney; treasurer, Mrs. Marian Peszat; Directors: Miss Agnes Short, Miss Elleda Levitt, Mrs. Mar- jory Austin, Mrs. Edith Whit- field, Past president is Mrs. Helen Robins. Andy Andreachuk, adminis- trator of the Lethbridge Mu- nicipal Hospital, and Mrs. An- dreachuk were guests of the club. Mr. Andreachuk spoke to the membership on his role as hospital administrator and of the new system of patient care in the Municipal Hospital, I each other's work and criti- cized." Their course eventually cov- ered home, play, tricycle, water and miscellaneous. Mis- cellaneous takes care of such potential hazards as behavior in buses, shopping plazns, cars, building sites and play with firecrackers or guns. Safety council president Russell Kuehl says it has cost about to put on the course for each of its two years of operation. Its comprehensiveness, suc- cess and the degree of com- munity involvement it at- tracted helped the council to win the Canada Safety Council Carol Lane award to be presented' in Fredricton May 24. Once the outline was estab- lished, Mrs. Faudemer enl- isted the aid of her girl guide troop and, through them, of other teen-agers. It was the teen-agers who made up many of the actual safety rules, based on the adults' guidelines. They also made 65 posters to be used in flip charts to show the pre- schoolers. They illustrated the dangers of falling off bicycles or lumber piles, diving into unfamiliar water, or leaving pots on the stove with the handles turned out. The first year, 20 teen-agers worked with the project, too of them to a group. Each group averaged 10 or 12 chil- dren, though attendance var- ies. Mrs. Pedersen says they have teen-agers "wait in line" to work with the project this year. The pays for poster ma- terials, crests for the teen-a- gers, tricycle bells, deeals, at- tendance books, and an as- Reliab House A Possibility For Calgary CALGARY (Staff) A rehab- ilitation house for women who are having alcoholic and living problems is in the planning stages for Calgary. During a meeting held recent- ly in the Calgary Friendship Centre, 30 people attended rep- resenting organizations such as city council, churches, division of alcohol, Indian Affairs, court, John Howard Society, Gover- nor General's office, commun- ity services, Native Develop- ent Society, Calgary and Leth- bridge Friendship Centres and Alcoholics Anonymous. From among these people and organizations, a board of direc- tors of 13 was appointed to con- tinue planning and make the house a reality. Actual life stories of alcohol- ic girls were told to dramati- cally illustrate the urgent need for the house. Russell Smith, chairman of the meeting said girls "living in the jungle (skid row) are the lowest on the totem pole and have nowhere to turn for help." Even girls on drugs think they are better, although there are ycry few native pioblems in this area. Court worker, Bob Ogle said although lie can help men by sending them to a place where their problems will be helped, he can't even do that for women. One place is the YW from which he receives a per night bill, for room and board only. Mr. Smith summed up the policy of entrance to the plan- ned house by saying, "No one will be turned away if there is room and they truly, want whether white, Metis or native. sortment of small prizes. The first year it also covered the cost of a bus for a swim out- ing. The second year the bus was donated. The first year merchants were canvassed for help, and those that donated money or materials were given a certifi- cate to display. Each year about-50 to 60 children have attended, most of them aged 3 to 5. The first year the course was given "twice a week. It has since been decided that holding it every day for two hours a day for two weeks is a better ar- rangement. The pre-schoolers listen to lessons, they draw then- own posters to illustrate the les- son, they practise some of the things they are taught, and they have a tricycle safety "roadeo." After each session they are given something to take home safety information, a decal, their own posters. The two best posters arc kept from each session and the whole collection displayed in the public library. Most the lessons are done as question-and-answer: "Why should you be careful around work benches? "Tools like axes, saws, chis- els, drills and all things on daddy's bench are made for big people to use and are very dangerous for small chil- dren." Aurora has a parks and rec- reation parade every sum- mer, and as a grand finale to the safety course, the pre- schoolers are allowed to ride their decorated tricycles in the parade.
