Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueiday, October 26, 1971 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD 17 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We have three teen-age sons and I need help. This problem involves our Number One Son. He is 18 and lias been driving the car for 16 months. This boy has received seven traffic tickets for moving TO ations Two involved damage to our car and another vehicle, but no injuries were involved. On one occasion we were not aware of the violation until we received notification that the boy did not appear in court on a particular date. When we told him, he said lie had forgotten about it. Because of my husband's "connections" none of the of- fenses resulted in convictions. My husband justifies the fix- ina bv saying our insurance rates would soar if the boy were found guilty. In each instance he was severely-repn- manded by his father, grounded for a brief period and not permitted to drive either of the cars. He accepted the punishment without complaint. I have always opposed my husband's protecting the boy, but I was overruled. Now I see signs in our two younger sons that they expect their dad to cover for them as he did for their older brother. What (Jo you Voice DEAR M1N: Fathers who "protect" their sons in this way do them no favor. I abhor such shenanigans. Had the boy been allowed to take his lumps the first tune, i can promise you he would not have had six additional arrests. There are worse things than high insurance rates-and one of these days your husband might find out what they are. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The world is changing and it's about time. Just because certain customs have prevailed for centuries is no reason they should be continued. One of the traditions which shbuld be abolished is the nonsense that the parents of (lie bride should pay for the wedding. This is unfair and illogical. Why should the parents of the bride be stuck for the total bill when the groom's family invites the same number of relatives and friends, and they get just as drunk and eat just as much. _ The bride's parents have plenty of grief just making (he arrangements. By the time the kids are married the bride s family is barely speaking to the groom's side. There is over the bridesmaids' dresses. The .groom's sister doesn't look so good in yellow. His cousin doesn't want to walk behind Louise because she is tall. His sister is allergic For all this aggravation, the bride's father has to pay huge bill. H the expenses were shared it would reduce nervous disorders, hypertension, ulcers, colitis, cardiac arrest, as well as bankruptcy. Who needs In Long LAMMY- Tliis is one tradition that will be with us long time for the simple reason that tots of folks who have girls wouldn't have it any other way. (Me, for one.)

WORLD OF SHOES 317A SIXTH STREET SOUTH Woman uses plastic wraps to ease pollution problem Flying is demanding work No for stewardesses S1IDBURY, Ont (CP) Dick Bryce tells her friends, "eat, eat, eat." It's because she wants their bread wrappers. Mrs. Bryce crochets scatter rugs from plastic bread wrap- pers, laundry covers, shopping bags. It takes about 100 bread wrappers to make one rug. She says they wear well and can be cleaned with a scrub brush and milk soap. She has devised a way to get the knots that tie the wrappers together pulled to the underside of the rag. The knots make a rug skid-proof, she says. Mrs. Bryce and her husband Russ live in a senior citizen's home. Dick is a nickname for her given name, Benedictine. Mrs. Bryce says she likes to feel her hobby contributes to casing the pollution problem be- cause it re-uses dozens of plas- tic wrappers. To make the rugs, she cuts each wrapper in a continuous strip, as you would peel an apple. The strips are tied to- gether in square knots and rolled into balls like wool. When the ball has 100 wrap- pers wound on it, it will make a throw rug. Mrs. Bryce has crocheted for years and even developed a new crochet design when she got tired of doing the pineapple stitch. For years she was a volunteer program director at Pioneer Manor, a residence for the eld- erly and infirm. Now she's using her talents to help keep the elderly citizens of her hous- ing project busy. REGINA (CP) The life of an airline stewardess is not all pie-in-the-sky, says Judy Fen- wick of Toronto, an Air Can- ada stewardess. When she applied for the job she thought it would be "a thinking of the travel to far away places and! excitement that she had imag-j ined since she was seven. I Now, after flying for three, years across Canada and over- j seas, she still likes it, but "I j also found out it is hard work." In an interview, she told what it is like to be a girl in the sky.. Stewardesses work a raaxi- j mum of 75 hours a j from the 40-hour work but a person cannot take much j more flying time, the 24-year- old former Regina native said. I "Being inside a high pres- i surized aircraft is a strain on a person's she said. For example, one has to drink a lot of fluids, and stewardesses take special care with makeup because the skin dries out more quickly. As well, there is a constant adjustment to different time j zones. Most stewardesses nev-! er get to eat breakfast, dinner and supper the same day. BETTER CHANCE I Miss Fenwick applied to Air Canada in Vancouver because she thought her chances of be- ing hired would be better there.: She still waited more than a i year. 1 Because there is more air tra-! vel now, the waiting period probably would not be as long. She took a five-week train- ing course in Montreal, then was stationed in Vancouver for the standard six month pro-. bationary period. During this time either the stewardess or the airline can decide the job won't work out. Two of her three years flying were on the reserve list. "If you can survive reserve, you can make Miss Fen- i wick said. Reserve means being on call at any time of the day, with'' no scheduled flights. There are1 10 days off each month. During reserve, a stewardess must be near her telephone and ready to take any assignment on short notice. She must call her scheduling office to ask if she can wash her hair or it she can take her daily three hours off. YJF members so to seminar c?
