Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, November 18, 1974 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 19 Ann Landers Youth's potential for lifespan of six-score years? Being in poor shape usually means dying younger Dear Ann Landers: Where are all those advocates of premarital sex when it comes time to pick up the pieces after a "momentary mis- And what do the ad- vocates do to help prevent such "mistakes9" Do they tell the kids that though a relationship may be "meaningful" to one partner it may be purely self- satisfaction, an ego trip, or mere condescension on the part of the other? Do they tell the kids that a "meaningful relationship" may be so meaningful that one partner may have an overwhelming desire to ce- ment that relationship with a child' Do they tell the kids they should NEVER count on the other person to take precautions and that to be perfectly safe, both parties should count on themselves? Do they tell the kids that a girl's most intense desires are very likely to accompany her most fertile time? this Do they tell the kids that a person's "love" might be severely dampened by resent- ment and turn to full-fledged hate should that person feel trapped? Do they tell the kids that alternative solutions to an un- wanted pregnancy are vastly more difficult to handle than coping with the challenges of virginity? Do they tell the kids that the legality of abortion is in- significant compared to the emotional trauma7 Do they tell the kids that giving up a child for adoption is no simple matter for anyone who has had a ''meaningful Do they tell the girls that keeping an out-of-wedlock baby goes far beyond the en- joyment of having a cute little bundle of joy to cuddle and take for a stroll in the peram- bulator'' Where are those advocates of premarital sex when it's time to mend Jives suffering from their advice? A Shoulder To CYy On Dear Shoulder: Thank you for a good letter. I'm glad you offered your shoulder to "cry on." Mine is already the wettest in the U.S.A. (Are you listening, Dear Ann Landers: We came to this country from the Netherlands a year ago and like it very much. There are two things about your country we cannot understand. A company that sells fried chicken advertises that it is "finger-lickin" good In our country, children learn table manners. Licking the fingers is considered vulgar. We do not want our children to im- itate tins custom. What should we tell them9 The second thing is the way your clergymen run to the front door of the church after the worship service and sermon to collect com- pliments. They shake hands with all who leave and revel in the high praise of their ser- mon. This is completely foreign to us and we would like to avoid it. How? New Americans Dear New: In America it is considered O.K. to eat crisp fried chicken with the hands. If you don't want your children to lick their fingers, tell them to use silverware. In some churches it is customary for the clergyman to shake hands with the members of his congregation after the service. If this bothers you, take another exit or find another church. VANCOUVER (CP) Pro- jection of young people's fit- ness curves indicate: They could live to be 120 if they did all the right things, says a Vancouver cardiologist. But in order to reach that age, they have to be initially in the peak physical condition of a first-class athlete, main- tain the best condition for their ages throughout their lives and avoid disease, acci- dents, and pollution, said Dr. John Osborne, director of the cardiology department of the Vancouver General Hospital. Dr. Osborne said the possi- bility of living until 120 is not far-fetched. He noted there are cases of people in the So- viet union living to that age. But people in poor physical shape are on a different curve, he said. Thev hit death lines in the 60 or 70s, if not sooner. Yet gradual improvements in fitness will help to straighten out the sudden de- clines and push up a person's curve toward that of the top athletes. Dr. Osborne said it's usu- ally too late for the average person to reach the ideal, but the shift offers such addi- tional benefits as being able to enjoy life more, sleep better, get along with others better and increase activity. He had reservations about recent federal and provincial government fitness cam- paigns emphasizing the im- portance of jogging and fit- ness testing centres He said emphasis on the word "exercise" is wrong. He preferred "activity." Ex- ercise implied an arduous (for some, masochistic) program, come sun or rain, pleasure or pain. Such an approach has an 80- per-cent failure rate within one year, he said. And to tell a person he must go jogging or he will get heart disease is not only unprovable but plays purely on fear, "and fear is a very poor motivator on a long- term basis." Dr. Osborne said the first thing to do to improve fitness is to increase general, day-to- day activity. Secondly, people should fol- low active pursuits that inter- est them. Then they would be motivated by pleasure, or re- ward or accomplishment. Above all, said Dr. Osborne, people must abandon "this terrible craze" of trying to use machines in order to ex- ert only the minimum of physical effort. For example, he suggested that Vancouver General Hos- pital employees, unless they have a medical problem, not be allowed to use elevators to travel one or two flights of stairs. "This could happen in other buildings; if you're not going past three floors, then walk. "The standard practice is to take an elevator for one floor. Why? Well, because it's there and because you're not sup- posed to get sweaty. And we're so conditioned that a lot of people get panicky when they are short of breath. But in normal activity, puffing is a good stage to get to. "So what we need is a change of attitude. Almost to the point where the B.C. gov- ernment, if it is going to have its big building downtown, should build a parking space for employees' cars two or three blocks away. "Then they would have to walk that distance at least twice a day. "We should start to think 'How can we change our habits so that instead of doing the minimum activity we can, in fact, start to do Increased walking was a good way to get into shape.

CALL HOMEMAKER SERVICE 327-5725 After Hour Emergencies Call 328-0919 By LINDA WH1TSON Training District Home Economist I would like each of you to think of a decision about money which you have made this week. Perhaps it was to buy a new chesterfield or even a new tea pot. How did you make your decision? The next question is are you satisfied with the decision? Is your family satisfied with the decision? At times, these questions seem elementary but often there is a connection between the way decisions are made about spending and the way family members get along. Once upon a time the Jones family had 'X' dollars to spend. Mrs. Jones wanted a new dining room suite. Mr. Jones wanted a new plough. You can imagine conflicts in- volved A good solution must involve the whole family This also brings to mind the family budget, inventories and record keeping.
