Alberta Council on Aging to meet next in The executive of the Alberta Council on Aging recently ap- proved the city of Lethbridge ?.s the location of its fifth an- nual convention to be held in May, 1972. An invitation to meet in Leth- bridge was made at the June convention held in Vermilion by Don Le Baron, Council vice- A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN Dear Brookfield: 'A. ica, old mother, now lives a TO in the city aiij while keep'ne with housework and some volunteer work, has made absolutely no social com- mitments of her own. Instead she comes religiously to our suburban home each and every weekend and holiday through- out the year. The main por- tion of her existence is here. I love my mother very much- she is and has always been most welcome but I find myself more and more squeezed by her loneliness. Having just turned 40 myself, with four teen-age children and a wonderfully tolerant hus- band, I now feel I need the freedom of separation. When Saturday night comes, I want to look forward to a few hours alone with my husband or with our friends. However my moth- er is always present and wants to be included. Our youngest boy, just turning 13, is begin- ning to resent her and we con- stantly have to reprimand him about this. Yet I know he's re- acting to her bad temper and lack of courtesy. (With her health beginning to fail, she often gets despondent and annoyed and cranky with the children.) Recently, some friends who live out of town in- vited us to visit. My mother startled me by stating openly, "I would love to go, too." ftly husband says that if she goes, the trip's off. I'm not about to take her anyplace." (She's al- ready been hurt by her disap- pointment in life and in peo- ple. Somehow I can't seem to rid myself of this guilty feel- ing although I've always given her everything of myself: un- rierstnnding, patience and com- panionship. What can I do? M. A., Stockton, Calif. Dear M. A.: Kindness can hurt, as well as help, people. When your moth- er became a w i d o w, she was apparently n o t discouraged from having "the main portion of her existence" in your home. As a result, she has become as dependent as a child in many ways, demanding much of your attention and compet- ing with your own children. Now you seem to be at the point of deciding who comes first: your husband and chil- dren, or your mother. If it's to be the former, you may have to begin to loosen the knots in your somewhat knotty relation- ship with your mother. You may have to tell her directly not to come on a certain week- end because you will not be there. You've tried haps too be a good daughter. But you are not, and have never been, responsible for what life has done to her. Lethbridge president and Anne Farries, di- rector. This is the first time the con- vention will be held in southern Alberta. The AJberta Council on Ag- I ing was formed six years ago at the suggestion of former pre- mier Manning.

New Swift Sauces make meat taste like something special And they do it better than any other sauce you can use. That's because Swift Sauces are complete in themselves. They're a blend of choice ingredients made to cook right along with meat so even economical cuts come out tasty and tender and juicy down to the last bite. Swift sauces are zippier than condensed soups. Easier than soup or dry sauce mixes. All you do is add the meat and let it soak up that great flavour. Why not try an idea that's really different. New Sauces from Swift. After all, who knows more about meat? From Swift Jke, ._ breakthrough company.
