Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Brandt's party given boost BONN (Router) Chancellor Willy Brandt's coalition in Bonn got a big boost with an unex- pected victory for his Social Democratic party in state elec- tions in Bremen. But Adolf von Thadden's ex- treme right wing nationalist party, the NPD, which some years ago raised fears in the world of neo-Nazi revival, suf- fered a severe blow, losing yet another of the toeholds it had gained. The vote gave the Social Democrats an over-all majority of 59 of 00 seals in the Bremen Senate state legislature. CAKELESS PICKERS The carelessness of berry pickers was responsible for 85 forest fires in Ontario in 1970.

He had no speech; he was unable to read or write. Now, after treatment, professional help and his own perseverance, Sannders has made tremen- dous progress. His speech still is a little slow and oc- casionally he has trouble thinking of a word, hut he has come so far that he has become the leader of a group of similar stroke vic- tims, helping them on their road to recovery. After teaching himself to write with his left hand, he re- lalect his Tht Associated press. By RAYMOND SAUNDERS MIAMI, Fla. (AP) Realiz- ing that no two strokes are alike, I am going to set my stroke down in writing as best I can. So long as I can sit down and ponder and think about it, the words flow well, if I don't, the wording can be pretty peculiar and funny. Anyhow, I wound up with a massive stroke on the right side at the tender age of don't suppose there is any age that is too early or too late. All I know is that the evil, and I do mean ensuing from the horri- ble thing is enough to turn an agnostic into an atheist. There's a lot to be said for progressive least it gives you time to prepare your- s e 1 f psychologically for the eventual incapacity. In a stroke, one minute you are doing 70 miles an hour hit- Jng on all eight cylinders, the next minute, if you're lucky enough to survive, you're down a crawl doing barely one mile an hour and you're fortun- ate if you have one cylinder to go on. Once you get over the shock of realizing that you're a cripple for the rest of your natural life, if you are a realist, ego can be your most important asset. SELF REGARD STRESSED ff the ego is shot full of holes, for all intents and purposes you might as well be dead, so it became vital to keep up my self-regard and psyche.

The discoveries were made in three caves in the territory of Rondonia, bordering on Bolivia and in the basin of the River Amazon. All bore signs of hav- ing sheltered members of the tribe, the newspaper says. The Amazons were a nation of warrior women in Greek legend, and the river was named after them when early explorers ol South America told tales of seeing women warriors along its banks. 'SPECIAL BARGAIN' TOMORROW ONLY Why elect a part time Alderman When for the same vote you can Elect a full time Alderman C W. (Chick) CHICHESTER Y Inserted by C. W. CHICHESTER Government departments reduced YELLOW KNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) A reduction in the num- ber of government departments was announced here by Stuart M. Hodgson, commissioner of the Northwest Territories. Mr. Hodgson said he will consolidate four of the govern- ment's service departments in- to two units and that the shuf- fle will "eliminate a duplica- tion of services and result in a more efficient operation at the headquarters level." The changes are effective to- day. The two new departments of administration and public ser- vices will take over responsi- bilities now carried out by the departments of legal affairs, treasury, personnel and terri- torial secretary. In addition to the amalgama- tion, Nr. Hodgson announced the department of organization and planning, will have its name changed to that of execu- tive secretariate. He said the secretariate and new departments will be ol "great benefit to the Northwest Territories council" because it will be "easier to work with a consolidated government sys- tem." The secretariate will take on the additional functions of a treasury board with the respon- sibility for budgeting, estimates and financial forecasts, finan- cial and management services manpower planning and devel opment and peisonnel policies It will also be responsible for certain privy council-type func tions dealing with matters o policy and program co-ordina tion, liaison work with native organizations and control of ter ritorial representation on eral government boards committees in Ottawa.

BZENITH hearing aid ng a letter with one hand is mportant. When you come lown to the more important hings, like separating postage tamps with one hand without making a mess of the whole en- deavor, well, that is amusing. After the stroke and the sur- gery that became necessary, I vas in intensive care for the letter part of three weeks. Con- sequently, I have little recall of .he month that followed. Can you imagine my chagrin when I found I couldn't talk at one word could I utter was stunned! I could not even say "damn and there were many occa- sions when I was in the hospital to use it, and I might add that's putting it mildly. Do I remember the days couldn't talk at all. Boy, oh boy, ;he frustration that comes with it is tantamount to emptying the Pacific Ocean into Uie At- lantic Ocean with a tablespoon I believe it was a Chinese phi- losopher who said: "The longest roid starts with the first step.'' Thus, it became a question oi first things first. LEARNS TO TALK Once the speech therapist look over, the sound I was able to make was channelled into vowels, consonants and finally into words. Then came the un- derstanding of the re- call working endlessly on "op- posites." Then there was tongue placement, breathing and fi- nally volume and tone. I'm still in a wheelchair, not that I can't walk, but walking is still a hazardous proposition for me. Perhaps in a year or two I'll be able to walk better. In the meanwhile, it sure kicks the hell out of the furniture. I had to teach myself to write again with- my left hand. On some rainy night, if you're tired of going to the movies or are tired of TV, put your right ham in your pocket and try writing with your left hand. I guarantee you will have a barrel full of fun. However, on the positive side I consider myself lucky to be able to communicate at all. I, unfortunately, have seen what strokes can do to people.
