Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 14, MttAlD f POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD At Birdseye Ranch we like inspiring words. Tilings like, Blow blow thou winter wind, thou art not so unkind as my Aunt Gertrude. Another one is, Nothing succeeds like success. That's the story of Peepers, the horse with the glass eye like myself. All set to go to the Royal Winter Fair, Peepers ran into the outhouse and lost his glass eye. I got down on my hands and knees and hunted for an hour. It was gone. Probably dribbled down a gopher hole. I threw my arms around him. "Oh, gosh, Peepers, why did this have to He looked at me with a big cow eye. He was sad. He chewed some grass, then spat it out. I had to make him see I still cared. But there was no time to get to town and get a new eye in the china de- partment Aunt Gertrude came to the rescue. Her hobby Is ceramics. Her skillful, nimble fingers fashioned a new artificial horse's eye out of clay. It dried in the hot July sun in 15 minutes. Then she took a marking pencil and drew in the iris, cornea and retina. By golly, it looked real. "That looks like a real horse's eye." I says, ad- miringly. Aunt Gertrude popped the phony peeper into her little kiln and turned it on to "bake." "Peepers, you little horse with the ceramics eye- ball, you're going to the Royal Winter Fair." I could see him in my mind's eye, trotting the tanbark to the cheers of those eastern plutocrats. "Gosh, I said, patting him on the cheek, "You're going to win your class." says Aunt Gertrude, "Best four-year-old with a phony peeper." Down at the fair, a staid gentleman, an honor- ary judge or something, was upset by the dress of some girls. "Just look at that young person with the poodle cut, the cigarette and the blue I overheard him say. "Is it a boy or a "It's a girl. She's my daughter." "Oh, forgive me apologized the fellow. "1 never dreamed you were her father." "I'm not, I'm her mother." Never mind about him. Peepers stole the judge's eye. And it fit! We didn't go home empty-handed. Peepers doesn't look like a fugitive from a ceramics show anymore. And don't forget, more than Canadians have pledged their eyes through the Eye Bank of Canada. Already donor eyes have been used in corneal transplant operations, restoring sight to thou- sands of people. The Eye Bank was set up from coast to coast in 1955 by the CNIB in co-operation with the Canadian Ophthalmological Society. Something to keep your eye on.

As earn as we walk into my moth- er-in-law's house she never fails to say, "Jack, shave off those stupid tilings; they look terrible." I have gotten to the point where I reply, "I like them." My 13-year-old son went to her place for a holiday. His hair was long according to the conventional hair cuts, but not more than level with his ears. I thought it was rather becom- ing. But she made him get a haircut, gave him a diet of scripture: "A man is shamed by his long hair etc. etc." When my small daughter wants her hair cut in a shag, it is a no-no. "Why doesn't she get a decent She is always commenting that she never gets out, yet she could get a ride downtown any day with her other son and take a taxi home. Taxi fare wouldn't even bend her. But she would rather complain that peo- ple don'fcome to see her. Just how responsible should I feel? I certainly don't enjoy a visit, yet I am the one who makes sure we go to see her as after all she is my husband's mother. She is just 69. Makes Me Cross DEAR CROSS: I expect she thinks her sen- iority gives her a claim to fame. But her behavior is infamous. See what you and your hus- band can do to get her mvited to a Senior Citizens' club. She might come up against others In her age group whose youth- ful ideas would be good for her. Explain to your young people that she is used to short hair and can't change. Help them to enjoy her good points and re- mind them that you and their dad are the ones who have the final say. But do keep up con- tact. And let those who approach such age with closed minds open them up to the new world we are living in. Essential prin- ciples do not inclule niggling little remarks about other peo- ple's appearance. DEAR DORIS: My son Davey, who is 14, Is very worried about the little gores and pimples which are ap- pearing around his chin nose. He is an army cadet tod takes great pride in looking clean and neat in his uniform, but he needs some help right now with his complexion "prob- lem. I toW him keeping Us face clean would help, and last night he scrubbed it until it was all red and sore. I suggested he should also wash it during the lunch hour at school, but he dis- liked the idea of doing this be- cause of the thought that other boys would tease him. Just Mum Successful living DEAHMUM: Cleanliness is the ttcket. Acne besets the kind of skin which exudes grease, as means of throwing off impurities. Some- times UK pores get dogged and infection sets In. Skin specialists recommend frequent washings sometimes as many as four or six per day. This is to keep the grease down, the pores open and black- heads and pimples prevented. If he can't wash at school, could he use one of the little satur- ated paper towelets (put up in small envelopes) to give his face good wiping off? In any case, be can wash, his face morning, after school, and evening, which is probably con- sierably more than be is doing now. He should use a complex- ion brush, with a gentle circul- ar motion so that the little bristles can get at the pores and cleanse tiietn. Since the whole scalp is involved in this, he should shampoo twice a week. With perseverance he can prevent permanent scars. (For all persons concerned with acne, whatever sex or age, my leaflet "Acne what to do about it" can be helpful. Write for ft, Doris Clark, 86 Roeedene Ave., Hamilton, Out, enclos- ing 20 cents for the leaflet and an eight-cent-stamped (elf-ad- dressed envelope.)
