Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I hart Ihrrc ladies over Tor tea yes- terday and on the spur of the moment I decided to say n blessing over Hie cnke ;md cookies. They looked at me as if I wcro crazy. I 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 OhJo DEAJl EM: No way. If you felt an impulse to say Grace over the cake and cookies, f see nollung to criticize. The world could use more "fools" like you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and 1 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 lo work for Ihis 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 fliat he was rewarded for his work means oven 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 letter of appreciation is never out of line. The letter should be from your husband, however, not from you. And keep it simple. Excessive gushiness caji be em- barrassing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a 17-year-old overweight girl. Last year I went on a diet and lost 30 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 niolher to make her stop she says, "You are acting like a brat. Lose iveigiit and wear them yourself, then your sisler won't be tempted." 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 morri Is off base, but yours is. She should insist that your sister leave your clothes alone. Thj.i problem, however, is small compared wilh pounds of excess baggage at age 17. I urge you to gcf a complete physical checkup. If there 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 emoiional 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 senl 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 gelling 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 lo loak 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 performed1 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 hy a clergyman of another faith or, in exceptional cases by a magistrale, 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 thai the commil- tec's work was done in a con- text of increasing co-operalicn among churches in some areas. SHARE CONCERNS "Pratestanls ami 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 lo minister lo people as people ralhcr than filling them inlo a church." Broadly, (he guide encour- ages couples to talk out poten- tial problems thoroughly. It urges them lo help Iheir fami- lies understand why they want lo marry. It says cultural dif- ferences can sometimes bo, more difficult lo 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 the couple be en- couraged lo 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 bc- this is the biggest change in approach. SHOULD BE ACTIVE "The real encouragement In this is lhat it encourages both partners to remain active in their respective congregations and share them al intervals "Conversion is still good If H caji 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 ilself, suggesting that the cou pie help lo choose element from both backgrounds to bo 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 lime, that mil change." Job training information aimed at underprivileged TORONTO CP) Informa- tion about jobs, courses, baby sitters and the people who can help to get them has been com- piled in a folder for the use of low-income women, especially Immigrants, wilh little school- ing.
