Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 2, 1974 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band is a very smart man, successful in business, and good judgment when it comes to most things, but he the world's lousiest storyteller and doesn't know it I want to crawl into a hole whenever he starts to tell a joke to a group of friends or at a meeting of some kind. You'd think that after dozens of flops he would give up, but he doesn't seem to get the message. I've told him (in a gentle way. of course) that I think he ought to give up on telling jokes but he insists I am super-critical. Perhaps if I could be more specific about what makes a good storyteller, it might help. You have a way of getting right to the heart of things. Ann. Maybe you can put it into capsule form and help others who would like to be good storytellers but miss the mark Thanks for your help.

If all the wives of lousy storytellers could be supplied with earplugs they would be a lot more comfor- table Here are some hints that might help provided the poor story- tellers are able to recognize themselves. No one can tell a story well without rehearsing it privately. It should not be preceded with "Have you heard the one but presented as something that actually happened. The story should not be dragged out in detail. Keep it short and tell it in a lively fashion. The punch line should come as a sur- prise, and then the storyteller should stop talking. If no one laughs, or if they look as if they are expecting more, the speaker should realize that he has laid an egg and not try to explain the story. (P.S A really good storyteller never laughs at his own jokes. He leaves that to others.) Ann Landers discusses teenage drinking its myths, its realities.

Attitudes not positive Retirement studies in Alberta By LYNNE VAN LUVEN Herald Family Editor The average person does not begin planning for retirement early enough, says the co-ordinator of a province-wide study on that subject. "A good many people now retired did not carry out psychological and financial advance planning necessary to make the most of their leisure says Jerry Archibald, who is in charge of a retirement study being conducted by the Third Career Research Society of Edmonton. Mr. Archibald visited Lethbridge this week to train seven local people who will conduct the study in southern Alberta, surveying retire- ment attitudes of 100 residents of the Lethbridge and Taber area. The Third Career Research Society, a volunteer non-profit group, is investigating Albertan's concepts of retirement, interview- ing more than people in 17 areas of the province. Citizens interviewed are divided into two categories those aged 45 to 65 and those over 65. "We want to practise what we says Mr. Archibald, "so wherever possible we hire senior citizens as interviewers for the pro- ject. They do an excellent job once they've completed the training session. They take the study serious- ly and the subject is obviously one in which they're vitally interested themselves." Within the next two or three days, those southern Albertans randomly chosen to participate in the retire- ment study will receive a letter ex- plaining the project. Within three weeks, an interviewer will contact them and administer a four-part confidential questionnaire. The TCRS study is intended to be a thorough analysis of all aspects of retirement how Albertans plan for it. their feelings about it, their satisfactions and frustrations and aims to create practical retirement- preparation programs which could be implemented by government and private businesses for their employees. From the results of interviews conducted in the northern half of the province, some general impressions seem prevalent, says Mr. Archibald. is quite evident that people in the pre-retirement group have ex- pectations about retirement which often turn into frustrations. They an- ticipate their leisure time, but don't know how to handle it, they feel useless. One woman complained she'd looked forward to sleeping in all the years she worked, but after a few months of retirement, even that got tiresome." Mr. Archibald says there seems to be a trend among some reitrees to go through an initial "unhappy phase" where leisure just seems too much for them. Some people even become very ill at this period. However, he adds, the majority are able to work themselves out of the depressed stage. "The study seems to get those interviewed talking and thinking about retirement, sometimes for the first says Mr. Archibald. "Many of our interviewers say meeting other people while working on the survey opened up their own attitudes and got them com- municating with friends and family about retirement and leisure." The Third Career Research Socie- ty wants to promote retirement as a positive, fulfilling period, rather than as the negative, end-of-the-road phase of life, says Mr. Archibald. "We think people should be prepared to retire to something, not merely from he emphasizes. Mr. Archibald says there is rapid- ly growing interest in pre- retirement training programs in many sectors of society. Provincial and federal governments are eager to begin training their employees to handle retirement positively, he says, and are awaiting the results of the TCRS final report which should be available by March 1976. "More interest in retirement preparation is being shown by labor adds Mr. Archibald, "and eventually such programs will be part of most salary agreements. However, the big push for retire- ment programs must come from private citizens themselves. Employees must take an interest in their own future beyond the time they're on someone's payroll."

"A judge's primary duty is to preside in courts. We just don't have enough judges to perform as many marriages as are demanded." Civil ceremonies are becoming more popular. In 1970, marriage licences were bought in Toronto and couples were married at city hall. .In 1973, licences were bought and 4.358 couples were married at city hall. Judges have mixed emotions about marrying couples. Judge Gordon Tinker doesn't like it. "After a morning in the courts. I often feel I am again spending the afternoon sentencing he said. "We have to stay with the essentials of the ceremony as outlined in the Ontario Marriage Act." said Judge Harold Rice. "It's up to the in- dividual judges whether he embellishes the ceremony and gives it a personal touch." Provincial court judges who perform civil ceremonies alternate on a rotating daily basis. All weddings take place from p.m. to p.m. The ceremony takes about 90 seconds. The bride and groom repeat in turn after the judge that they do not know any impedi- ment to their union. Tnen each pledges the desire to be wedd- ed to the other. Couples choose a civil ceremony for a variety of reasons. "It's more simple than a church wedding and there's no heavy expense." said Albert ,and Dorothy Winslade. both 57. "Others have scruples about taking part in a religious ceremony in which they don't believe." said Judge Carl Waisberg. Mr. Sprong said the number increases at the end of the year when a man takes advan- tage of the chance to claim a dependent on his income tax return. in Edmonton EDMONTON Edmon- ton's new women's hostel will be operated at a new location for a period of one year by the Edmonton City Centre Church Corporation, Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, announced Friday. The new shelter is schedul- ed to open Nov. 15. Mr. Crawford said the government asked the cor- poration, which represents inner city churches, to operate the new shelter because no agreement could be reached on two proposals for alternative women's shelters submitted by the Native Outreach Organization and the Edmonton Women's Shelter Ltd. The government is hopeful that during the next year a new voluntary association representing individuals and organizations interested in the care of transient women will evolve to operate the shelter on a permanent basis. The previous women's shelter at 10308 101st St., was closed in September by order of the city health department. Shortly after the centre was closed, temporary facilities were provided by the Salva- tion Army and staffed by the Native Outreach Organization to accommodate transient women until renovations were completed at the downtown federal Immigration Building. The province acquired the new facilities at 10534100th St. to resolve the problems presented by inadequate quality of accommodation for transient women. Mr. Craw- ford said that long standing criticism of health safety features of the old women's shelter location will end with the opening of the new shelter. The Edmonton City Centre Church Corporation will hold an open house at the new hostel in earlv December. HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play' lines from popular, hokey campfire and range song. 'Country roads take me home to the place I belong' excerpt from hit song byjhe Stampeders. What do these oft warbled lyrics have in common? All refer to a commodity that, in Lethbridge at least, is the stuff of which dreams are made. Until I went to the Lethbridge Home Show last week, I thought houses were attainable commodities, necessities, not luxuries. Who would have thought something as vital as shelter would be on a par with star sapphires and solid gold tea services as an item of affluence? Trundling through three or four show homes shortlv Droved just how naive I was. As if the selling prices weren't gasp- producing enough, the realtor's suggested down payments were even worse. You say you're interested in that moderate sized two bedroom with sundeck? No problem at all. That's a total cost of for the square feet you're buying, with a "modest" down payment of You were thinking of something just a little more luxurious, you say? With a bit more style. Well, style comes high these days: how about for a square foot dwelling, with open fireplace, three bedrooms and two baths? As for the down payment, it's 25 per cent of that healthy price. And so it goes: with a down payment of (just about what an average to small sized house sold for a few years The house can also be had for with fridge, stove and kitchen set included. The downpayment? Around don't know about you. but just reading all those many-digited figures makes me dizzy and weak kneed. The Home Show wasn't totally without redeeming factors, though. There was one house which might possibly have been within reach of the average family. A simple two bedroom edifice no frills, believe me for with a 900 down payment. But of the 14 homes on display in West and North Lethbridge. only one appeared to be "built to last" with fine finishing and careful carpentry. I wonder how many families, saving for the downpayment on that long awaited house of their own, came away from the Home Show shaking their heads dejectedly.
