Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 21, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta It THI IETHMIDG! HIRAID Wednesday, Ottalttr II, Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter will sound like some- thing the Yale boys made up, but I swear every word of it fa true. Please tell me what ,to do about the mess my sister is in. Jean (made up name) has been married four years. From the day she became a Mrs. her in-laws have been pestering the daylights out of her to give them a grandchild. At first it was good natural kidding. Later it turned into unbearable nagging. Starting last year her life has been hell. Four months ago at her husband's birthday party, Jean announced sins was pregnant. Everyone was thrilled. She start- ed to wear maternity clothes in her second month, which 1 thought strange seeing as how she was slim as a reed. Lasi night I couldn't believe my eyes. Jean was way out in front. We had gone shopping together three days before and she didn't even show. My husband kiddingly patted her stomach and I could tell by his face something was wrong. He called me aside and said he was sure Jean had a pillow or something under her dress. I took her into the bedroom and asked her to level with me. The poor girl broke down and cried. She is not pregnant and never was. She even has her husband fooled. Jean's plan was to play the game until the seventh month, go to Los Angeles to visit a friend have a "premature" child and bring home an adopted baby. It's all so crazy I can barely believe it. Jean admits she should not have made up this dreadful lie. She is ashamed and sorry. But now the question is how can she extricate her- self from this mess and save her face? Can you suggest a plan of action? J's Sis DEAR SIS: Jean should tell her husband .the truth im- mediately. She should then announce to friends) and family that the stork has cancelled the visit. No details need be given. Jean's next move should be in the direction of Anyone who could dream up such a bizarre scheme needs therapy. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our neighbors, who are the nicest people in the world have three children and a .dog. Their dog, unfortunately, has had a skin infection for several months. The veterinarian has told them the infection is chronic and incurable. He also told them not to wash the dog. I've been searching for 'some polite words, Ann, but there aren't any. I'll just come right out and say the dog smells terrible. The minute my husband and I set foot inside their home we become nauseated. For some strange reason our children are not bothered by, the odor. Please don't suggest the obvious solution: "Tell them." We HAVE told them but they say-the dog is like a member of the family and they must do whatever they can to keep him comfortable. We enjoy these people very much. They are won- derful friends but my husband and I get sick whenever we go over there. Even though they keep the dog in the basement, the smell is on tie furniture, the They en- tertain beautifully and we hate to miss their parties. What's the answer? Holding Our Noses In Massapequa DEAR NOSE HOLDERS: I don't know what you consider "beautiful entertaining" but how beautiful can it be if you are' nauseated? If they were my neighbors I'd suggest another the Terdict is the same, you have no alternative. Simply tell them the dog's odor makes you ill and you cannot accept any more invitations to their home.

Action Workshops Can Lead Way Volunteer Groups Must Change With Times TORONTO (CP) An urgent need for change and for com- munication among women's vol- untary organizations was ex- )ressed Monday by women who are leaders in the.field. It was the dosing day of a two-day session on the value and relevance of the groups. Tie meeting, sponsored by the National Council of Jewish vornen of Canada with funds rom the federal government, was attended by women repre- senting about 30. organizations and government plus about 15 more active in volunteer work. After workshop and general discussions, the consensus was that old organizations can be useful if they work first at the level, in co-opera- tion at times, and if they find a way to respond quickly and effectively to immediate issues. The women seemed to feel their old-style groups could learn some lessons from new- style action groups and on occa- sion work on the same prob- lems. Helen M c C r a e, dean of women at the University of British Columbia, told one work- shop that action groups within large organizations could point out current issues in a commun- ity. Speaking to another work- shop, Lola Lange said commun- ity needs must come first and suggested action groups raise a flag to show the traditional or ganization where the most ur gent needs are. Mrs. Lange, of Claresholm Alta., was representing women's rural organizations She is a member of the roya! commission on the status women. Beryl Plumptre of Toronto said her workshop felt day-care centres might be the kind of project in which a number of groups could .co-operate. Mrs. Plumptre is" president of the Vanier Institute. oca Japanese United Church Women will be holding their annual chow meio (upper and bazaar at the Japanese United Church, 9th Ave. and St. S., on Saturday (rum 4 to p.m. will be available.

She criticized Washington's Hedex program to train former nilitary medical corpsmen 'to assist physicians, saying the hortage could be solved much asier by using registered urses. Dr. Peplau, a professor of ursing at Rutgers University, was in Seattle to address a phy- ician-nurse conference. Nurses no longer are confined o keeping patients comfortable, he said, but the image of a urse as someone "who changes ic sheets and takes your teni- Derature" survives and is often shared by the physician, she said. Doctors would benefit by em- ploying registered nurses as partners instead of subordinate helpers, Dr. Peplau said. She forecast nursing clinics in rural areas with a nurse as the only source of health care serv- ices. "These clinics will be in touch with a panel of physicians m the nearest she said, "but the nurses will have the authority and will be accountable for rou- tine patient care."
