Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I had three ladies over for tea yes- terday and on the spur of the moment I decided to say a blessing over the cake and cookies. They looked at me as if. I were crazy, f realize this was out of the ordinary but I just felt like thanking the good Lord for his generosity. Did I make a fool of In Ohio DEAD, EM: No way. If you felt an impulse to say Grace over the cake and cookies, I see nothing to criticize. The world could use more "fools" like you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I haven't been married very long and we need some advice from a person who has had some experience with bosses and business especially executives. Jimmy went to work for this firm 15 months ago. Yes- terday he received an unexpected bonus. Of course we were thrilled. The money means a great deal, but the fact ttat he was rewarded for his work means even more. What we want to know is this: Would it be all right if we wrote a thank-you letter to the boss or would it be out of line? Cloud 19 DEAR 19: A Idler of appreciation is never out of line. The letter should be from your husband, however, not from you. And keep it simple. Excessive gushiness can be em- barrassing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a 17-year-old overweight girl, tast year I went on a diet and lost 38 pounds. I bought three size eight dresses and four pairs of tight-fitting slacks. I was thrilled to be able to get into them. Then, for some mysterious reason, I began to overeat again. I lost complete control of myself and gained 45 pounds. My sister who has never seen a fat day in her life has been wearing my size eight clothes. When I catch her, the battles start. She has plenty of clothes and there is no good reason for her to be sneaking mine. When I ask my mother to make her stop she says, "You are acting like a spoiled brat. Lose weight and wear them yourself, then your sister won't be templed." Is it fair? Am I behaving like a spoiled brat? Please give me some But Not Pleasing Anyone DEAR PLUMP: I don't like to tell a teen-ager her morrt is off base, but yours is. She should insist ttat your sister leave your clothes alone. This problem, however, is small compared with 45 pounds of excess baggage at age 17. I urge you to get a complete physical checkup. If Uiere is no organic reason for your obesity, get on a doctor's diet and stay on it. I recommend counselling also. It sounds as if your unresolved emotional problems are compelling you to overeat.

Mr. Binhammer, a Lu- theran, has been a member of a n inter-church committee that has produced a guide for marriage counselling for Christian mixed marriages. The guide is to be sent to every Protestant and Roman Catholic clergyman in Can- ada. The work of preparing the guide started in 1969 under the joint working group of the Canadian Council of Churches and the Canadian Catholic Conference. Mr. Binhammer says the decision was made early to confine It to Christian mar- riages. "We had to decide what we meant by mixed marriage. It could be such a wide field, Jewish and Christian, atheist and Christian. For the sake of the task, of getting it done, we limited it to Christian mixed marriages. It's not that we don't realize others are there. I wouldn't be surprised if a follow-up group was formed to look at others." SHOW INCREASE One facet of the background of the project was an increase in the proportion of marriages between people of differing Christian communions. Dur- ing the period 1962-67 the pro- portion of such marriages performed by clergymen in- creased to 42.2 per cent from 29.7 per cent. In 1970, an apostolic letter was issued that eased the Roman Catholic stance on mixed marriage. The guide says a Roman Catholic bishop now may permit a Roman Catholic "to be married by a clergyman of another faith or, in exceptional cases by a magistrate, in the interest of the spiritual well-being of the couple or of the family's rela- tionship. Mr. Binhammer says it also "generally encourages a more open discussion of matters concerning raising the chil- dren." He notes that the commit- tee's work was done in a con- text, of increasing co-operation among churches in some areas. SHARE CONCERNS "Protestants and Roman Catholics have come to work together in many fields to share common concerns, and this was one that certainly stood out. "There is a growing con- cern to minister to people as people rather than fitting them into a church." Broadly, the guide encour- ages couples lo talk out poten- tial problems thoroughly. It urges them to help their fami- lies understand why they want to marry. It. says cultural dif- ferences can sometimes be more difficult to handle than religious differences. It emphasizes the need to get concerns about children clearly decided, from birth control to the faith in which children would be raised. It suggests the couple be en- couraged to continue worship- ping at their own churches if that would be the best solu- tion, but to understand each other's beliefs. Mr. Binhammer says he be- lieves this is the biggest change in approach. SHOULD BE ACTIVE "The real encouragement In this is that it encourages both partners to remain active in their respective congregations and share them at intervals "Conversion is still good if it can be done in conscience, but lo change churches be- cause it's expected we say that's dishonest and they shouldn't do it. "We encourage the couples' discussing the problem and in good conscience arriving at conclusions that rest on their convictions rather than the churches' laws." They have also offered guidelines for the ceremony itself, suggesting that the cou pie help to choose elements from both backgrounds to included. Mr. Binhammer says he thinks the guide will meet some resistance from the con- servatives of every church. "There will be local clergy who will resist, but we hope, in time, that will change." Job training information aimed at underprivileged VANCOUVER CP) Al- though the name Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire might seem an anachronism in this day of fading empire, IODE President Mrs. George E. Tail of Toronto says the organization has retained its relevance with contemporary ideas for the good of Canadians. "We have remained on top be- cause of the relevance of our work in Canada said Mrs. Tail in an interview prior to today's opening of the lODE's "2nd annual convention. Mrs. Tail is particularly proud of the work the IODE does with the native peoples of "We give them the tools and le encouragement and they erform the she aid. "We hear of needs and hen we provide the help. ;veryone knows the initials ODE in the north." Amont the lODE's projects In he north are a community entre built by the organization t Attawapiskat on James Bay, 6 Incubators supplied to nurs- ng stations in the Yukon and Territories, swim uits and safety instructions to children in the far north and the supplying of books and educa- ional supplies to remote schools in all provinces and the territo- ies. spend On Education Of the nearly 51 million raised last year by the organization, was spent in the area of education. This year, the IODE will .jresent 10 war memorial schol- arships valued at each. Some 826 IODE scholarships nave been presented since 1921. Mrs. Tail, who was one of six women who got the royal com- mission on the status of women underway, said she is not happy about the way its recom- mendations are being imple- mented. We believe that the various recommendations are not being put into action fast she said. Mrs. Talt said the IODE Is after the same goals as women's lib but goes after them differently.

They're exploited, they're the last lured and the first fired. "We hope the information in the folder might provide a little bit of incentive for them to taki training to upgrade thei skills." The folder compiles Informa tion most often asked for. It de- scribes courses such as regis tered nursing assistant, visitin homemakcr, nursery aide, fur niture and fur and food industrj jobs and beauty careers. It indicates how long a train ing course would take, where is available, how much pay th jobs offer and who can hel candidates get the training.
