Phone 327-4625 Ann i 1 a Landers DEAR HEADERS: Here is a Confidential to the hun- dreds who wrote to express surprise or disappointment that I am not a Christian: In a recent response I said, "As a non-Christian who receives thousands of Christmas cards every year I do not resent the religious I was disturbed by the number of readers who don't know there are other religions beside Christianity awl equate "Non-Cliristian" with Communist, Athiest and Anti-God. My religious faith in Judaism, the basic concept of which is One God. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am glad you printed Uie let- ter from the woman who had had a miscarriage at five months. She urged you to educate the ignorant fools who ask embarrassing questions (such as, "Was it a boy or a Now I hope you will print my letter. I had a premature baby (seven months) and she lived only 24 hours. Five days after I returned from the hospital, a cheerful voice on the telephone congratulated me on the new baby. The following day a photographer came to the front door with a wanted to take pictures. Calls from insurance companies, diaper services, baby furniture stores and toy companies drove me crazy. I was bombarded by offers for gilts ill the mail. I became so depressed I could barely do my housework. I know these companies are trying to get business, but why can't they at least check to learn M the baby lived before they begin to hound people? Or better yet, why aren't the hospital records kept private? This leaking of in- formation should be stopped. Get busy, Ann, there's work to be There, Too DEAR TOO: I agree, but don't blame the hospitals. They do not leak the information to commercial companies. BirUis are a matter of public record. Anyone can get them. A check should be made to learn if there is a baby in the house before the promoters descend. It can be done tactfully and I strongly recommend it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Can a dog be mentally ill? Our neighbors have a Basset Hound that barks for hours at a time. Sometimes he starts at a.m. and wakes up our entire household. I timed him yesterday and he barked for three solid hours without a let-up. I thought I'd lose my mind. The dog is kept in a nice, big doghouse behind their place (and right under our bedroom We see a pan of water out there at all times, and1 we know he gets fed regularly. The animal is not being abused so the owners are not violating the law. The neighbors are unfriendly and keep to themselves. They are not the kind a person can talk to. This morning my husband woke up with a terrific headache because he had had only four hours Sleep. Any ideas? DEAR say the neighbors are not violating the laws? You are wrong. Their dog is disturbing the peace and there is a law against that. I suggest you call the police and ask them to look into this situation at once. Perhaps the dog needs to be put on medication. NCJW aids in drug rehab program MONTREAL (CP) Thanks lo llie determination of a young psychiatrist and Hie help of a women's group, llio way lias been opened here for a drug rehabilitation program it tbe first year's operating expenses can be raised. Dr. Sidney Lecker, a 33-year- old youth psychiatrist with the Montreal General Hospital, has been working on Hie project for several months "as a volun- teer." "Tills year we were made aware of the fact that there's a much greater problem of heroin and amphetamines in Montreal than we ever thought. "When we realized that Mont- real was beginning to have a major drug dependency- prob- lem, a group of people, includ- ing the National Council of Jew- ish Women of which my wife is vice president, met at my house and decided to form toe Portage program." Portage will be a corporation based on a rehabilitation and training program in New York called Daytop Village, Dr. Leck- er said. He feels the Daytop Village project is one of several such programs in the United States that he knows to be successful. USERS TAKE OVER Daytop has been in operation for six years. It is financed by state and private donations. The village now has three private residences, two in New York City and one in the suburbs. There are a total of 402 resi- dents in bouses, which are fully staffed and operated by former addicts. There are no doctors or psychiatrists and the residents operate the program as they progress through it. It is an 18-month program. Residents spend the first year in the house working at domes- tic chores and attend group therapy sessions three times a week. During the second, or re-en- try, stage, they work in com- munity relations, introduce new residents to the program or op- erate the day care program. In this program, young addicts rangmg from 10 to 14 years old are counselled during the day and return home in the eve- ning. In the third stage, the resi- dent goes out to work but con- tinues to live in the village for another four months after which he "graduates." Daytop is strictly voluntary, riesidcnts come in off the street or in some cases are rccom- icncled through the courts or probation service. Dr. iccker said that some Daytop people came to Mont- real, at the invitation of the Na- tional Council of Jewish Wo- men, and agreed to become in- volved and lo help set up the Portage program. They will form the clinical su- pervision of the program which is to be located in the country- side. The exact location has yot to be determined. The corporation applied for a foundation grant and was granted to buy facili- ties. It is looking for for the operating expenses. GRAHAM'S FOOD MARKET 708 3rd Ave. S.
