Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta HCrvMD Tuesday, 01, 1972- Doris Clark RICKARD "11 winter comes, can spring be far And if the glass eye cracks, is the vision jumbled? Worst thing about winter is Hie glass eye freezing up. I remember those cold winters at Binlseye Ranch, riding Peepers, the horse with the glass eye like myself. Poor little nag, lie suffered in the cold. I used to have to take his glass eye out and stuff it into my underwear to warm it up. Then I'd slip it in, very quickly, and aim it. You had to be fast because it would freeze up in a second. Sometimes it would take me 15 minutes to force myself out of my bunk in the cookhouse. I got so I could put my overcaot on in bed, then leap out and run downstairs and light the fire. We had to break the ice in the washbasin to wash. It was torture pulling the glass eye in. You had to slip it in fast after making up your mind who you wanted to look at. I'd say to myself, "You better look at Uncle Max this morning." I knew Uncle Max wanted to talk about the fence on the south side of the northeast quarter of section 25 south of the northeasterly run- ning Crooked Creek, i So I had to look at Uncle Max at breakfast. So I'd break the ice, wash, and slip the glass eye In, aiming it to the right. Uncle Max sat to the right of me at the breakfast table. It was so cold, the glass peeper would freeze right in place in a second. I had to talk to Uncle Max all through breakfast. It I spoke to anyone else, they thought I was talking to Uncle Max. 'Get some anti-freoze in that horse of he said one morning. "He's staring at me all the time. Gives me the willies." i "And put some in says the cook. I didn't answer, not wanting to get cut off, the pancake .supply. A good anti-freeze is 100 per cent proof Scotch. It has to be strong, because those Birdscyc Ranch winters will freeze anything of lesser quality! Shed a tear for Peepers, lie stared so hard at a cute little filly his lens cracked. Well I'm glad the election is over, aren't you? Three good men had to lose. It's a crying shame. I think when these guys first go into a contest, some- one should take them aside and of you to win and the disappointment is shattering. Goodnight boys! Here's looking at Successful living ffliWaWSiiiW DEAR DORIS: We had arguments, my hus- band and I, about everything: money, another baby, sex, love, all those important tilings in marriage. Tbat is, I tried to talk to him, but he would not talk our problems out or go to a counsellor. So I went lo his doctor with him, and the doctor said: "Why the H... do you want another And my husband just let him t-o on like that. I have been away from him two years, with our one son, and now close friends are wanting me to give him another chance. They say he wants more kids now. But it isn't as if I hadn't given him one chance after an- other. I never got any help with anything. I don't love him any more; why does a husband say all the right things after the wrong has been done? Will it bother my boy not having a father? He never played will] him. Wanting Love, Not Arguments. DEAR WANTING: Pretty hard to bring love to life, once it has been thorough- ly killed. This has to your decision. Tt is possible TCob has grown up a little: perhaps your friends have helped him see the light. I'd say he ought to do some high cliiss courting before he could hope to re-awaken any feeling in you. A boy does need a father but ens who knows Iww to do some fathering. It can get pretty lonely, go- Ing it alono. DEAR DORIS: Has the medical profession in the last few yca-s come up with a cause for stuttering? la there any cure for it? It used fo be thought to be Urinary calculi in cattle on range and in ieedlot By DTI. C. B. n ATMS Y Animal Physiologist Lcllibridge Research Station Urinary calculi in cattle and sheep can be subdivided into those that in animals on range and those that form in animals in the fcedlot. Calculi from range animals contain amorphous silica as the prin- cipal mineral constituent, al- though calcium oxalate anil cal- cium carbonate are sometimes present as well. Most calculi from animals are com- posed of magnesium phosphate usually in tlie form of (he min- eral sfruvile (magnesium am- monium fn addi- tion, calcium inn cnrbiiiVitr, and calcium alnte aro si timers foiuvL Kach of the; individual miner- al consi.iUis.mts of calculi arc ruyrrnol components of urine. Cnlcnlic form wht-n concent ra- tions of the constituents come excessively high or when relationships between them al- ter. Supplying one ounce of am- monium chloride per head per tfay to feedlot cattle has been found to reduce the incidence of urina ry tract obstruct ion due to calculi. The ammonium chloride is believed to act by increasing the acidity of the ur- ine, thus increasing the solubil- ity of the minerals that form the calculi. Urinary tract obstruction by calculi is a persistent problem among cattle in fecdlols in western Canada. However, it would unwise to make rec- ommendations for the preven- tion of .such calculi because very little Is known of their chemical composition. It might seem reasonable to asuurne (hat calculi that affect caitle in Iho feerllot would be of the foc'llot 1 ypc. ft m list bo re croj; m zed. however, that many cattle in ic cd lots we r a i.scd on I he range and that they could have had range-type calculi in their urinary tracts at the time they were transferred to tlw fcedlot. In su ch a case, remed iea de- signed to prevent the growth tit feedl ot-type calculi would not be applicable. A survey of the chemical composition of calculi from fcedlot cattle would help to an- swer the question of their ori- gin and provide a basis for establishing preventive meas- ures. Information concerning the origin and nutritional his- tory of the animals from which the calculi were obtained would add lo the value of tho survey. At the Lethbrulge Research Station we arc attcmtping to carry old such a survey. For this we rely upon the co-opera- tion of fcedlot operators, veter- inarians, and others in provid- ing us with calculus specimens. Wo shnulri bo grateful if any- one with .specimens of known history would .send them to 113 together with any available de- tails relating to the locale where the animal was raised and its diet both before and after it was transferred to tho feedlot. A report on tho out- come of the investigation will be sent to each coopcrator. entirely due to nerves. Is this true? My Son Stutters. DEAR STUTTERS: Nervous lension is still to blame, especially in the case of a young child. Between two and five he may try to say some- thing, get stuck, try over again. Your job is to find out what is making him tense. Ignore the stuttering, relax and help him to relax. Listen patiently. Fatigue may one cause; the slammcring child needs more rest than other children. An emotional shock may mean you must calm his fears, let- ting him pour out all his anx- iety, and ignoring it if he stut- If he has been forcibly stop- ped from thiunb sucking or nail biting, or from using his Itft hand when ha is a left- handed child, these things may start him stuttering. Work towards peace, serenity m the home. Keep excitement down; and avoid household wrangling and quarrelling. I am attaching a list of lit- erature available which may help; hut if the stutlering is severe you may need Ihe help of a speech therapist. DEAR DOHIS: I have a friend who is 18 and could very well on the verge of corruption! lie is drinking incessantly and is experiment- ing with smoking weed. He won't let anyone talk to liim. He comes from a strictly re- ligious family. I consider he has been deprived of an identity all liis oivn and has received sec- ond best love from his parents. They don't praise him as they do the oldest. I can't see why because lie is a brilliant and talented person. I like him but I don't know if I like him enough to become his best girl friend. It seems I'd have to, if I were to try to reach him. Then he might quit if lie knew how much it hurt me to see him injuring him- self by taking pot. Pot-Fourri of Trouble. DEAR POT-POURRI: 1 go along with your diagnos- is. He needs admiration and praise from his parents not comparisons with Ms older bro- tlier who has had the edge on him ever since he was born. It happens all too often this way, when parents can't see it is they are doing in downgrading the second one. Bobby Burns was right when he stressed Iww much we need to "see ourselves as otliccs sec us." Don't sacrifice yourself on tho altar of friendship. Find ways to give him a builchn if you can, but keep heart-whole and stand by ready lo give moral support. If he lias Iwen brought up slricUy, as well as in the dis- couraging shadow of bis broth- er, the key in victory is lo en- courage him it) activities which will porsuatlc him that he is worth something after all, DEAR DORIS: I am worried alxnit a yoiing lady, now 15, who for tho last eight years of her life lias de- veloped a complex. A well- loved great aunt died when she was seven, and she was the one who had taken an interest in Judy. Now Judy's features are set in grim fashion. Sire hates her loooks and feels everyone is against her. Another aunt suggests that what she should have been given was sympathy and under- standing when her great aunt died. But no one helped the child with her grief. Her moth- er lias always been too busy with the other children and is more inclined to scold Judy than to be patient or loving with hor. I just thought you might have a pamphlet you could send her. It might help if she were to buy a real nice jacket or pant suit something strik- ing. Instead of this her mother seems to be always dressing all her children in faded out- grown clothes. If you don't feel it wise use the money I am sending for something else. Just An Onlooker. DEAR ONLOOKER: Judy is not the first little girl who was more devastated by a death in the family than anyone imagined. The aunt is right; she should have been talked to, helped to understand about death ami to realize that tljere were other lovirig ami helpful people in the world besides her dear great aunt. I can't see sending her any type of pamphlet or advice, un- asked. Instead, I would suggest you become her friend, to the point where she trusts you and accepts your affection. Then perhaps you could guMe her to write to me herself. DEAR DORIS: I am a widow getting mar- ried to a widower. We plan lo be married in church but only have witnesses Please tell me how we walk into church and any other pointers, Widow- DEAR WIDOW: Your alternatives are: 1. You and your groom walk in from side front, with the min- ister. The two witnesses are already sealed in a front pew. They may rise and stand by your side dtuing the ceremony. Or they may remain seated, rising to follow you to tbe reg- ister later, 2, If there are additional guests, you may walk down tho aisle preceded by your atten- dant; and meet the groom at the bottom of the steps in Ihe usual manner. You can still have a lovely coTcmon y, wi Lli or wi I hout guests; and I would suggest background organ music. Main thing is to gel llicre.
