Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, October 2S. 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 19 Bill introduced to alter surnames EDMONTON (CP) A bill has been introduced in the legislature that would enable birth registrations to carry the surname of the father hyphenated or combin- ed with 'the surname of the mother. Neil Crawford, minister of health and social development, introduced the change as an amendment to the vital statistics act Hyphenated or combined names would be subject to the agreement of both parents. Names could also be changed after the initial registration of birth The same procedure may be followed in registering the birth of a child by a couple who are not married. Mr. Crawford said there had been no pressure on the department to make the change from the old system that generally required the fathers name to be shown as the surname of the child The new provision, is unique in Canada, he said The government also introduced amendments to the highway traffic act which would allow police to order the owner of a motor vehicle involved in an accident to submit it for examination to determine if the condition of the vehicle contributed in any way to the accident. A further section gives more formal recognition to driver impairment through the use of drugs as equal to impairment through use of'alcohol Job equality demanded UNITED NATIONS (AP) Senator Charles Percy, PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY THUBS.-8p.

At right, he talks with Coach Frank Colby, who says Rusty gets no special favors and asks none. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Our dear little cat was killed by a car last evening My husband brought the still warm body home, wrapped in opaque plastic. I held him in my arms for the last time while the children prepared his grave in the backyard. They placed his favonte toys beside him We substituted brown paper for the plastic so his body would turn to dust as soon as possible We each placed a handful of earth in the grave and then he was buried. The children are going to plant 23 mangolds on his grave because that's what color he was and that's the number of toes he had. It occurred to me that a simple, unostentatious burial is exactly what I would like for myself when the time comes To be buried quickly, close to home in an unmarked grave, with only my loved ones around, no services, eu- logies, makeup artists, hearses, music, etc Is this legal9 Does one need to obtain a death certificate before burial9 Can any doctor provide it? Do you suppose having a grave so close to home might be psychological- ly harmful to whoever con- tinues living? Wondering In Boston Dear Wondering: My funeral maven in Chicago tells me you can have as simple and unostentatious a burial as you like If you want only your loved ones present, just tell your next of km that you prefer a private funeral. And don't forget to put it in writing with the help of a lawyer. Em- balming is not necessary, un- less you die from a com- municable disease. Most cities do not permit burials in backyards. If you live out in the country it might be allowed The local health department has complete jur- isdiction There is no legal require- ment that a grave be marked, but a death certificate is man- datory and must be signed by a physician and exchanged at a local health department for a burial permit. For most jur- isdictions a licensed funeral director must also sign and be responsible for the final dis- position of a human body In answer to your last ques- tion. Would it be psy- chologically harmful to sur- vivors to have a loved one buned so close? It depends Some might find it comfor- ting, others wouldn't be able to get a decent night's sleep. Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I do not smoke. We decided several months ago to discourage smokers from lighting up in our home by removing the ashtrays. It hasn't helped a bit. Friends and relatives who smoke use everything from our potted plants and porcelain figurines to their own pants cuffs. We want our guests to enjoy themselves and have decided not to ask them to refrain from smoking in our home But wouldn't you think they would take the hint when they see no ashtrays? What do you suggest? Nonplussed Dear N.P.: Nicotine addicts are often deaf, dumb and blind, also incredibly insen- sitive, when it comes to hints. So I suggest you be realistic and put back the ashtrays and open the windows. Baby Shoes Now you can have your babies' own shoes done in metal, gold, silver or bronze to last a lifetime.
