Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta IB THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD frijny, September 3, Constant need for more workers Absenteeism major problem of volunteer service By CAROL PASCOE MONTREAL (CP) Riding html on hospital volunteers is anything but the relaxed Jun- ior League-type job it might appear to be, says Iluth Mc- Bridge, director of volunteers at the Montreal Rehabilitation Institute.

Kathleen Cummings, who owns a detective agency in Lon- don, said women are better del ectives than men in every re- spect except brawn. But David Almog said he em- ploys as few women as possible in his agency, which has five of- fices in Israel. Only 20 members of his staff of 285 are women "and Ihey are all over 25 because younger women are too romantic or loo adventure-minded, no good for ]ii.-7 serious business." Mrs. Cummings said she pre- fers lo hire petite, feminine women "who don't look like tough lady and finds they are more alert than men. a women I can commu- nicate across the room by just raising an eyebrow. That's im- possible if I'm working with a man. He doesn't twig." About 200 private eyes from around the world are attending the association's "tfith conven- tion, being held in Canada for the first time. LEISTER'S LTD. Absenteeism is one of the major problems facing direc- tors of volunteers.

At present there are 157 vol- unteers, including two men, on the roll at tlie institute. Many of them are teen-agers who couldn't find paying jobs. Year-round adult volunteers are expected to work one-half day a week but the teen-agers put in two full days. "I have to watch the young ones Mrs. McBridc explained. "They arc so en- Lhusiaslic lo start wanting to work wilh children they soon get tired of it and leave." Most of [lie institute's pa- licr.ts are mobile and under- going intensive physiotherapy or occupational therapy. "There is one thing I have lo watch Mrs. Mc- Bricle said. "The patients are encouraged to wear shorts and I have to by to make sure, during the inlerview, Ir.al the volunteer isn't going to be overly-sensitive about the disability. :'I had one vokmleer work- ing in ths coffee shop that staff and palienls use. One day a patient who had been badly burned came in for coffee. The volunteer to.'d me ska fist couldn't slajid it any longer." As Mrs. McBridc, who has lost both lens and works from a wheelchair, said: "ICvery- lime I go up there to the therapy rooms, 1 stop r.nd think 'My God, how lucky I am.' RULES NEEDED There is a constant need for more volunteers in just about every hospital. While some of Ibe tasks may nol be exciting, most voulnteers enjoy work- ing in gift shops and libraries. Not wanted, however, are frivolous 'volunteers who con- sider themselves free to come and go as thu mood strikes them.

Many limis she has left her desk lo help out in the coffee shop it's short-staffed. Fraternizing wilh salff or is forbidden and vol- unteers involved are always dismissed immediately. Mrs. McBride recalled with a chuckle an incident when several volunteers late snd she went into the cloak- room to tell them to start hus- tling.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE LETHBRIDGE NAME ADDRESS DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am at a foss to understand how a woman v.-lio is as mean as ycu could have survived in your job for over 15 years. Many of your answers shbw ycu to be a sarcastic, unsympathetic and totally unfeeling per- son. Your heartless reply to the wculd-be Eagle Scout was the yet. The lad asked you lo write a 50-word statement explaining you are against drugs for teen-agers. This, he said, was part of his assignment fcr his Eagle Scout badge. You told him to go to the library or to the newspaper and hunt up some back columns that you bad written thousands of words on the subject and he should not be asking you lo do his Since yen are supposed to help people I see no reason for your having turned the boy dawn. In my opinion he was paying you a compliment by asking. You owe him an apology. N. L., Pebble Beach, Cal. DEAR N.LL.: Such compliments I can live without. Nearly day somebcdy asks me to do his work. The most frequent requests come from students who wfould like me to research the drug problem, marriage, love, sex or the Rise and Fall of The Roman Empire. The would-be Eagle Scout should have prepared his own statement and when I told him so, I received a barrage of blasts from irate readers including a clobber frcm the kid's mother. Among all the beefs, there was a brcalh of fresh air a. letter from a National Director of Ihe Boy Scouts of America. Here it is: DEAR ANN LANDERS: As National Director of Boy Scouting and one who is responsible for the advancement plan, I appreciated your answer to the Boy Scout who asked you to write a statement on cling abuse as part ot his Eagle project. The entire philosophy of Scouting revolves around the idea of a boy planning, developing and carrying out a pro- ject. We are pleased that you recognized this concept and we thank you for your interest and understanding of Scouting. If you wish to use this letter in your column you have my permission to do so. C. Keeton, North Brunswick, N.J. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I arc not speak- ing Icday. Please be the arbitrator. Yesterday we returned home from a two-week vacation. Clothes were scattered all over the place. I had a dozen things lo do. such as get groceries in the make phone calls and what have you. At the doorbell rang. I was wearing a wrinkled apron, rr.y hair wasn't combed and the living room was a mess. I trpencd the dbor and saw a woman whose husband works with mine, I nearly dropped. We had been togelher socially hut she was nol a close friend. Her first words were, "I've been thinking of dropping in on you for about a I apologized for my appearance told her I was sorry I could not invite her in and we stood on Ihe porch and talked for about ten minutes. I promised to call her when I got settled. Apparently this woman complained lo her husband that I had insulted her, and her husband complained lo MY hus- band. I got a Imly-wliat-for for being rude. If you agree with him I'll grit my tcofh and apologize. Hurry your answer. It's Cold In Buffalo DEAR COLD IHJl'T'': Itudc? Ynu tat. Rut she's the one who was rude, not you. To pop in at in the morning, unannounced, is gro.ss. In my opinion your husband owes YOU tin apology.
