Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta In My Opinion By CHRISTINE PUHl HeraW Staff Writer JJEAR this, hear this, National Y Week will be celebrated from Sunday, Nov. 8 to Friday, Nov. 14. For the first time in Canada, both the National Councils of the YMCA and YWCA have banded to- gether for a joint observation of the week. Mayor Andy Anderson signed a proclamation de- claring next week as official Y Week in Lethbridge with witnesses, Vaughn Hembroff, local Family Y president, and Mrs. Allister Findlay, YW president. Other than the official aspect of the occasion, no special programs have been planned at either associa- tion. Y Week also coincides with Week of Prayer and World Fellowship for YM's and YW's around the globe so tliere will be local observances in the churches devoted to this theme. Public invitations to observe the Y in action have been extended by both Ken Spence, general secretary of the Family Y and Jean Willoughby, public relations officer of YW. Tours will be granted upon request with normal programming in operation. "Be Aware Of All Things That Are Who is Ihe theme of Hie week. National trend for the YM and YW has been more involvement in social issues, at an international, national and com- munity level. Mr. Hembroff of the YM and Mrs, Findlay of the YW said their organizations must recognize and deal with problems arising from poverty, alienation, urban- ization and frustration throughout the world. In my opinion, it is so easy to say, "yes, some- thing must be done" and then mail some money and expect someone else to do the involving for you. But the local associations have been talcing the problem more in hand. The local YMCA has been actively involved in the organizations of transient youth accommoda- tion and the drug information problem, while the YWCA has had English classes organized lor at least 15 years and also been slightly involved in the local drug information problem this year. Internationally, the Alberta YMCA's, including the Lethbridge branch, are working to set the YMCA in Barbados, West Indies on its feet, including leadership and financial problems. Reports are being received by Mr. Spence indicating progress. The YWCA holds several small projects each year in order to raise funds which are directed to the Canadian YWCA for use in World Service. It will amount to this year. Although no spectacular projects are under way for next week, citizens of Lethbridge should be aware that there is much activity and concern in both Y's for not only their own programs but many related problems and people. Queen Held Vp As Model For Middle-Aged Spread LONDON (Reuter) The trim waistline of the Queen was held up today as a model for middle-aged women who have trouble ccnWiiing their T h magazine Slimming noted that despite her 44 years and the birth of four children, the Queen is almost as slender now as she was 20 years ago. "Very few people could go to the banquets the Queen does and not have an absolute binge and get said the magazine's editor, Audrey Eyton. "But she keeps slim." The Queen manages this, the magazine said, with a high protein diet of about 750 calories a day. It reported that she embarked on the diet after being persuaded by her husband Prince Philip to see a specialist. The magazine Illustrated its case by publishing two pic- tures of the one taken in 1950 and one Has year. She seemed to have acquired hardly any laches dur- ing the interval. A B u c k i n g h a m Palace spokesman said "the Queen is a modest ester." J CaUa, Of cLocal -Sya Soulhmuisler Circle Square dance dub's regular dance Sat- urday at p.m. in South- minster hall.

Ann Landers DEAR AWN LANDERS: Is it norma! for a seven-year-old girl to get sexually aggressive with a 25-or 30-year-old man? I didn't believe it until this little flirt crawled on my lap, began pushing herself against me, stroking my hair and pat- ting my face. That kid is more experienced at seven than I was at 17, The child's mother and1 dad were In the room when she behaved this way and they didn't say one word to her. If (hey think it's cute they need to have their heads szamined. I was tempted to say something to them, but I decided to mind my own business. Now I'm not sure I did the right thing. Should I have said something? I've seen the child behave this way with other men wbo were just as bewildered as I. Please advise me. Grand Forks, N.D. DEAR GRAND: Kids are turned on awfully young these days thanks (or should I say NO lhanis) to TV, radio, movies, advertising and just observing couples in public parks, on the street comers, everywhere boy meets girl. In my opinion you should have commented to the parents on the child's aggressive behavior and suggested that they discuss it with a specialist. If the youngster crawls on your lap again, let her know such behavior is unbecoming. Stand up, walk with her to an- other room and change the subject. Remain friendly and pleasant so she won't feel rejected. Chances are that her own father has not given her adequate affection and she is hungry for male attention. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A few weeks ago, Mark, the man I was about to marry suffered a heart attack and dropped dead on the street. The police phoned the person listed on his wallet identification card as "next of fcin." It turned oat to be a bar pickup who said, "I hardly know the guy." She did, however, lead them to Mark's sister, who called me. Together we vvait to his apartment to gather his belongings for disposi- tion. I was crushed and heartsick when we discovered letters and pictures from at least a dozen girls half his age. There were several notes from married women, as vrell as makeup, underclothes, hair rollers and other personal items apparent- ly left behind. Mark's 'sister fdt so sorry for me she was unable to utter a word. j At the wake I was consumed by feelings of anger awt betrayal. I felt no grief, only bitterness. The tears I shed were [or myself, not (or him. My clergyman's counsel and kindness saved me from tola! collapse. He suggested that I write to Ann Landers in the hope that you would print my letter as a warning to other foolish r.ien who may be playing the saine kind of a game. None of us knows when death will strike us down. The wise person is prepared for it. People who lead secret lives should consider those who love them and leave no evidence behind. If my letter helps spare just one woman the agony I have suffered, it was worth the pain it took to write it. Thank you, Ann.
