Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN ______ Thurtrlov, October 12, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 21 DIVORCED MOTHKIl Dear Margaret Brookfield: Perhaps you could help me to help my mother. Shortly after my father (lied, she re- married, but it just didn't work out. (Sire has hecn div- orced for 10 years and is 45 now. I'm her only child, a daughter, age My mother 3s a very lonely person. Although she has a joh, she never goes out socially. I feel she'd he much happier if she could find some other way to circulate and meet sonic men. other than just going to work in and day out. Would you hnve any sug- gestions on (his? J.W. Dear J. W.: The only person who can help your mother is herself. She's the one who must to get out and circulate. She's the one who must want to meet some men. It's difficult to say on the basis of your letter what might have made hsr withdraw so from the world. Perhaps her unhappy second marriage has made her of gelling in- volved with another man. One thing you might do though is suggest taking a short vaca- tion with her; either going to a resort togelter, or travelling to an intercslng place. Perhaps this way, your mother might he able to meet some men. Other than that, the impulse (o be social must come directly from her. A LOT OF WEIGHT Dear Margaret Brookfield: I'm 43 and have six children: (win hoys of 17; and girls who are 23, 19, 012 and 3. Although I never had lliis prohlem heforc, I've recently gained a lot of weight. I have a wonderful hus- band who works two jobs. He's a mailman and loves the work, but unfortunately we can't live on only one salary. (I was mar- ried before and he supported and helped raise my four older children.) Lately, I've been ter- tired, get headaches, am dov.n in the dumps lo top it off, live in a neighborhood where the women are younger and only have one or two chil- dren; so they don't talk to some- one who is older and has lots of kids. Since we have only one car, I'm really stranded here What would you advise for some one as unhappy as I? Wha would you suggest 1 do to keep from eating? C. C Dear C. C.: Your husband, working at his two jobs, obviously can't offe you much in the way o[ com panionship these days. Pcrhap j you're fating lo console your self a little. But instead of ac complishing that purpose, you'r i gaining weight and feelin worse rather than better. You owe it lo yourself anil your nard-working husband though to pull yourself together. A good ivay to start is by going to your doctor. Discuss your weight problems and get his profession- al advice on (hem. Also, if you're not using all your ener- gies on housework......and very few women arc Ihcse days why not develop an interest or hobby that doesn't require the use of a ear. It might be dev- eloping a play program for your younger children and those of your neighbors. Such an acti- vity could keep you so busy and involved, you wouldn't have time to eat between meals. Surrealist artist Otto Rapp envisages the non-existent By MAUREEN' .TA1IIESON Family Kditor Surrealism is an expression of mood and motive rather than a style of painting, according to Otto Rapp. As a surrealist painter, Otto "can sec details which do not exist." A viewer has to look more if the cooking method calls lor han oncc at a vork, Otto pointed out, "lie- cause it is very unusual. is my policy to leave a lot open for the beholder's in- he added. Otto was born in Austria and USE LITTLE WATER Use as little water as possible spent five years study with artists in informal in Sweden Before coming to Canada four years ago. "I pretty well developed my style and technique the self taught artist said. "But I have been influenced by surrealists like Salvador Dali, and just lately, by Endre Szasz, who now lives in Canada and is very well known. "I've always been interested in said Otto. "I start- ed in oils when I was about 18 years old and I developed a def- inite surrealist style in Swe- den. "Now I find acrylics suit my purpose better. The faster dry- ing time means I can work fast- er" without the long wait for one color to dry before going on to another. He claimed his work is not an expression of himself and his views toward life. "Most surrealists try to set things which don't exist at all in reality, but do exist in he said. "I keep to a kind of very masculine stroke with strong, set Otto said. "There's a very strong contrast between my lights and shadows. "And I believe in working de- lads out. Because most of my detail is unfamiliar, a person is obliged to look at it and study it line for line and put iiis mind lo work on H." This provides many different concepls for the viewer, unlike, say, a landscape, where Ihe total picture is absorbed rather than each small segment. Otto delves deep into mytho- logy and biblical lexis, and from there creates his own mytho- logy. "Most of my work is in the ar future or way far into the he said. One particularly striking bib- ical work is Christ Frozen in a mystical mood inventing Have you received your bulk meat price list! If not, drop in today and SAVE, SAVE, SAVE Time a strong, ageless face surrounded by tangled and overgrown strands the crown of thorns. Greek mythology, he webi from said, was the basis for such works as The Final Attempt of Icarus a satire with a free inter- pretation of the face of Picasso lied in with Ihe (heme of the myth, wlu'ch has Icarus fleeing from Crete on wings of wax and feathers. Unfortunately he flew to high. The wings melt- ed from the heat of the sun, and Icarus plunged to his death in the sea. Otto's favorite work, however, is Visions of Greatness, owned by city woman Marge rnembs U.S. ivoinan shuttles cargo planes YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) Barbara Barrett has a few problems as the only U.S. wo- man commercial pilot: Once the airlines accidentally booked her into a hotel room during a stopover with a male crew Jenny WREN last in long line GALT, Ont. (CP) Jenny lie WREN, the last in the long ine of naval service girls, stands five feet Ln green bronze and stares out over ialt today. The statue unveiled at public ceremonies by Toronto sculptress Frajices Gage, her- self a WREN, and Isabel Mic- neill, long-time commander of HMCS Conestoga. During the Second World War more than young women from across Canada poureo into Gait for their basic train- ing at Conestoga. On Sunday nearly 600 of these veterans witnessed the unveil- Dalke. "It was inspired by Rembrandt, but done in my very own he said. Much of Ottos work features a checkered, chess-board ef- fect. "This is a kind of surrealist rade mark, used to give the ef- 'ect of depth, but many surreal- sts also use it for perfect light and he said. "It's more an optical effect than anything else." I do a lot of research about surrealism and so Otto said; although living out west, lie has little opportunity to view the works of other surrealist painters. "But I plan to stay here as long as possible and keep on working and trying to promote my work." Otto RappTs paintings are presently on display in Leth- bridge at the House of Fine Art.
