The Lethbridge Herald Fourth Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, October 24, 1973 Pages 35 44 Tall in the saddle Being the only one at the playground has its advantages, as two-year-old Teddy Allen of Taber recently found out. There's the fun of having the big blue horse all to yourself, and getting a choice of saddles; and grandmother to push you at just the right speed; and of course, the chance to kick all the leaves you want, without interference from other playground patriots. Helping her grandson enjoy Gyro Park is Mrs George Draffm The Herald- Family Calendar The family of Octave W Ursenbach will hold an open house in honor of his 80th birthday from 7 to 9 p m Saturday at the LDS church, 10 Ave and 19 St S Everyone welcome Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: During the past five years I have overcome alcoholism, mental illness, obesity and the loss of two beautiful young children This was done with the help of a compassionate and compe- tent psychiatrist It makes me furious when I hear people say psychiatry is a racket, that it does no good Then the detractors go on endlessly about a relative or friend who spent a ton of money and put in hundreds of hours with a head-doctor and "they are still crazy I get angrier still when they tell me petty gossip about some nutty shrink and proceed to downgrade the entire profession I can truthfully say if it weren't for psychiatric help I would have killed myself with a gun or a gin bottle Please keep urging your readers to get professional help, even though some people think you are copping out Ac- tually, you gave me that ad- vice several years ago and I wish I hadn't waited so long to take it Bless you and my doc, Ann Now Dear C.N.: Thanks for the day bnghtener But don't be too hard on the detractors Therapy doesn't work for everyone, and some psy- chiatrists ARE nutty just as some plumbers, lawyers, teachers, bankers, bus drivers and bartenders are I'd say the chances of being helped by a shrink are about 50-50 But when people are depressed, semi-functional, In and out of town Home baking and delicatessen tables will be featured at the annual tea and bazaar of the Women's Federation of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, to be held from 2 to 5 p m Wednesday, Nov 7 in the church hall, 1818 5 Ave. S.

McKerrow, a Lelhbridge resident for the past 60 years and feeling miserable, those aren't bad odds An important part of the treatment is being lucky enough to get the right therapist on the first try Different folks need different strokes Dear Ann Landers; Today I heard a story so morbid and sick I can't get it out of my mind The person who told me is no fool Furthermore, I respect her integrity Please check the story out and let me know if there's anything to it This friend and I were attending the funeral of a co- worker Immediately after the graveside services, the funeral director took the arm of the widow and led her away from the open grave and helped her into a waiting car The other members of the family as well as friends were asked to leave the cemetery I was told this is part of an "arrangement" (made legal by a city ordinance) between the funeral people and the Detroit city officials It enables the mortician to switch the body from the ex- pensive casket to a plain pine box so that the expensive casket can be "sold" again Please check this out and let me know the truth Can't Sleep at Night Dear C.S.A.N.: Jules Furth, a Chicago funeral director, assured me that the story you heard is nonsense. There is no city ordinance in Detroit (or anyplace else) that prohibits family or friends from watching the entire burial proceedings "Body switching" is an old- time ghoul yarn It has been done by psychopaths from time to time, but a funeral director who would try such a hideous thing would be promptly drummed out of the profession Mr Furth said any family that asks to remain by the graveside to see the "sket lowered into the g. and covered completely would not be denied the request Confidential To The Wheel That Squeaks Gets The Greaie: It's also the first to be replaced Instead of com- plaining, try to improve the situation A lot needs to be done in that organization and YOU can do plenty TUNA TASTE When making tuna burgers, add a finely grated carrot to bring out flavor The Margaret Hartley Past Presidents' Club will meet at 1 30 p m Thursday, with Mrs R McMillan, 1302 Henderson Blvd as hostess Registrations for the Chinook Area Girl Guides mini-parliament will be held at 7 p m Friday at Gilbert Paterson Junior High School Opening ceremonies will be held at 9 a m Saturday The regular meeting of Dominion Rebekah Lodge will be held in the Oddfellows Hall at 8 p m Thursday Visiting Rebekahs welcome The annual chow mem supper will be held at the Japanese United Church from 4 to 8 p m Saturday Tickets are available at the church Everyone welcome The LA to FOE will hold a regular meeting at 8 p m Thursday in the Eagles Hall All members are reminded of the Halloween dante Friday in the Eagles Hall Prizes will be given for the best costumes 4 Aces and a King will be playing Everyone welcome The regular meeting of the 60 Plus Club will be held at 2 p m Friday in the lower hall of First United Church Everyone welcome Lethbridge Options for Women Council will hold a general meeting at 7 30 p m Thursday at the YWCA, with Laurette Simon as chairperson and Louise McArthur, recorder Lola Langp will not speak at the meeting as previously an- nounced A business meeting will follow, and will include a report from the Oct 20 meeting of the provincial steering committee WeeWhimsv Sweet wffl be mm tin art to- her quota you' child auowion to thit pxw Public appearances cancelled Golda sleeps less, worries more TEL AVIV (AP) Premier Golda Meir has been sleeping less, won ying more and chainsmoking her usual three packs of cigarettes a day since Israel went to war 18 days ago She has spent the days and much of the nights of fighting in an unpretentious office in the defence ministry com- pound, getting home when she could to the two-family house she shares with her son in sub- urban Ramat Aviv Her only public appearances have been to visit wounded troops and thank U S pilots who flew in arms and other military equipment Otherwise, as one observer put it, "she's play- ing general to the generals The grey-haired 75-year-old grandmother came from Je- rusalem to spend Yom Kippur with her son Menachem, a cel- list and the head of Tel Aviv University's Academy of Music, and his family Instead, she spend the most sacred Jewish holy day in the second-floor corner office at the defence ministry, making feverish preparations for the Arab attack that was developing Once war began, Mrs Meir cancelled all appointments and cleared her schedule for military matters and the political and diplomatic decisions arising from the conflict Jordans ANNUAL SALE For those with more flair than is your moment for INCREDIBLE SAVINGS on Jordans famous "Fashion Leader" BROADLOOMS If you appreciate the finer things of life and know a bargain when you see one you'll recognize this is an important event Here are thousands of yards of beautiful Jordans "Fashion Leader Carpets" all offered at remarkable savings Hurry, dress up for a happy season of entertainment You'll find the carpet that's just for you to please your taste and budget1 When you buy from Jordans you deal with someone you can trust!
