Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am wiling tliis letter to the thousands of unhappily married parents who hate each other's guts but arc staying together for the sake of the kids. My ad- vice is DON'T DO IT. 1 grew up in a house where Mom and Dad thought they were doing us kids a favor, but believe me, we would have been better off if they had split when the trouble 10 years ago, at least. The only jjeace we knew was when Dad left. When he came back we were miserable because we knew it was just a matter of time before he and Mom would be at it again. My kid brother has an ulcerated colon. My sister has migraine headaches. I have a skin rash that breaks out when I get upset. 1 jim thankful for one thing, however. My parents' have settled something important for me. I'm staying single. Victim DEAR DAY: You didn't ask for airy advice but. here's sorr.e anyway. Don't throw out the whole crate of eggs be- cause a couple are cracked. All marriages are not like your parents'. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 16 and have never had a date. It's my own fault and 1 know it. Please help me get my thoughts .soiled out. My dad died when 1 was eight. Mom didn't know any- thing about business and within two years she was flat broke. She took a job doing housework for different families because she could make more money as a day lady than if she worked in one place. Many nights she comes home so tired she can barely drag herself to bed. I cook and clean and help her as much as I can. The problem is that our house is awfully shabby and 1 am ashamed to let anyone see it. It's spotlessly clean, but it needs painting and wallpaper, and the rugs are worn out and the furniture is awful. When the boys get friend- ly I find myself giving them the freeze before they ask me out. I don't want anyone to see where I live. I have up- staged some awfully nice guys for this reason and I don't know what'5 going to become of me if I keep this up. Please give me some maybe a kick in the pants. I need Nit Wit DEAR WY: No girl lias to apologize for her home, so long as it is clean. Accept the very next fellow who asks for a if nobody asks within the next two I sug- gest that you invite some nice young man to play records and talk. Once you get over this foolish hangup you'll be fine. Get going and gwxt luck. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband has been married before. He has two sons 6 and 8 years of age. The mother of these boys has custody, and they live 120 miles from here. The judge decreed that every other weekend my husband could .see the boys at his mother's house, which is GO miles away midway between our place and his ex- My mother-in-law is so partial to the older boy that it nrakes me sick. It happens that lie is the image of his father and the younger boy resembles his mother. I can un- derstand my mother-in-law's feelings but she openly dotes on the older boy and ignores the other child. Naturally the ig- nored child acts up when he is at his grandmother's does things he shouldn't do to get attention. I've tried to point this cut to my husband, hoping he'd pay extra attention to the younger boy, but he says child psychology is a lot of bunk and what the kid needs is a swat in the rump. Can you give me a little support, Ann? Many Thanks Trying Hard DEAR T.H.: I hope your husband realizes how he is to have picked such an understanding woman for his second wife. Of course you are right. The ignored boy needs extra love and aUenlion. Grandma is probably unrcachable, but let's hope your husband is not beyond learning something.

BROWN Quorum of the Twelve Apos- tles, Hugh B. Brown related some of lu's memories in a Herald interview. The former of the LDS First Presidency and the first Letlibridge stake presi- dent, arrived here for celebra- tions marking the 50th anniver- sary of the founding of the stake. In recalling travel conditions in Alberta, circa 1920, the church leader said, "we were returning from a meeting east of Calgary. It had been raining for some time and the roads, if you could call them thai, were quile slippery. "Finally the rain stopped. We pulled off the side of the road onto some unbroken prairie to wait for the roads to dry up a little. While we sat there wail- ing we decided to pass the time playing mumble-peg." As a smile crept across his aged face he said, "I can re- call rooting out quite a few pegs with my ncse." Mr. Brown went on to de- scrilw the size of the original Lethhridge stake as it was or- ganized in November 1921. "We had I3io largest slake. Eeo- graphically, in the church. Our southern boundary was the U.S. border and the area stretched north to the north pole." "Travel was pretty bad in those he said. "If you went more than 50 miles with- out having to stop and patch, or change a tire, you bragged about it." He and his counsellors were travelling from Claresholm to Letlibridge or.e evening. They left Claresholm at As usual, the roads were muddy. They kept sliding off the road and would then have to get out and push the car back up on the road. "Of course, when we came to any hills, I had to get out and push the old Model-T. We ar- rived in Lethbridge at mid- he chuckled. Mr. Brown, a former Cana- dian, was the founder of Rich- land Oil Development Co., an Edmonton based corporation. He served in the First World War with the Royal Canadian Engineers and attained the rank of major. "There have been many memorable times in my he said. "But being able to be here and to be with the people I love is one of the most mem- orable." love 75... always being honest with each other.

EDMONTON (CP) Before- school and after-school pro- grams for children whose moth- ers work should be considered part of the over-all day-care planning, says Ellen Derksen. "What's happening is that thousands of children come home after school and are all alone until the mother or father can get home from work." said Mrs. Dcrksen, executive direc- tor of a day-care centre. j The problem is that no one j seems interested in the plight of these children, she said in an j interview. Many people still think the mother-who-works is sloughing off her responsibil- j ities. i They don't see the working i mother as part of a general so- j cial change, nor realize that j many women must work either as the sole support or a neces- sary additional support of their families. An after-school program as well as regular day care is provided by Mrs. Dcrksen's pro- gram, but it can't take as many children as apply. PARENTS AWAY It takes some children for temporary periods, especially if they have been part of the regu- lar day-care in- stance, when a mother is in hos- pital and the father must keep working. This year there are 24 chil- dren in the after-school pro- gram, which includes children ages six to 12. Mrs. Derksen said the use of schools themselves for after- school programs is one solution, but added that they must be entirely different programs with a staff other than the regular school program and tcachini staff. It's vital that the program be recreational and social and thai it not be restricting, she said. Another solution for after- school care, which is being tried in some areas in the United States, is to have a "block mother" who takes the children from her own residential area into her home after school. Ar- rangements must lie carefully worked out for this kind of pro- gram. OFFKIl BREAKFAST If the parents must leave early in the morning for work, she believes a beforc-school pro- gram offering breakfasts also fills an important need. "And far too few schools offer i lives from all parly-childhood a hot-lunch program, none in programs, she said.

The Edmonton Day Care Council, which is composed ol two members from the boards of each of the city's day-care i centres, has been pressing for i these kinds of facilities, Mrs. Derksen said.
