Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Lanaers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am in charge, of maintenance for a large luxury apartment building in this city. The problem is a well-heeled widow in her early 60s. We have a record of her "re- quests" for service and last month she called 42 times. This month her requests will exceed that number. She asks for someone to come up and move a piace of furniture, replace a light bulb, repair a leaky faucet, check the intercom system, "do something" about her TV reception, "do something'' about her noisy refrigerator, "do something" about the draft from the windows, etc. When the men go up there thev have a devil of a time DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 18-year-old daughter is in love with a boy whose past reads like a nightmare. Bro- ken home, stealing, reform school, drugs and alcohol. She was a fine girl until she met this boy. but for the past two years her life has consisted of Ees, evasions, crying and nerves. Now that she is through high school I wonder if we should stop fighting this thing and let her go with him. She has continued to see him on the sneak and we know it. We can't discuss it anymore. If the subject is brought up she says. "It's my life and no one can tell me how to live She is an intelligent girl end has plans for college. His f lure is very unpromising. He couldn't get into any col- lege even if he v. anted to. v.hich he doesn't His present job consists of sweeping floors. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a man in my GO's who has been going wilb a girl ten years younger than I am. have been keeping steady company for nearly four months. I want to get mar- ried someday, and thought this girl might make a good Last night I asked her about her past romances. She poured out not one story but TWO. The boy v.ho took her virginity was the captain of the high school basketball team. She -was 16 at the time, thought she was in love and was sure he'd marry her. That lasicd two When she was 19 she went to bed with her boss, DEAR ANN' LANDERS: Tour ariswcr to "No Appe- tite" was disappointing. The v oman's husband was gone many evenings and she sus- pected he was seeing some- one on the side. She ate many 3 dried-out, tasteless meal alone and ended up crying in her coffee. When she abkcd if she should leave him said, the pluses and mi- nuses. Decide whether your life would be better or w orse. then do what is best for you." There is no way she can follow that advice, Ann. No woman can know what life would be like "without getting out. She always has the table set for two and asks them to sit down for coffee and a sweet. Yesterday she invited the window washer to stay for lunch. This morning the electri- cian told me he is sure she disconnects and unscrews tilings so she can call some- body to come and fix it. What can be done about her? Sha's a non-stop talker and nobody wants to go up J DEAR J: The poor lady is lonely but it is not up to the building to supply compan- ionship for widows. Tell her she is entitled to X number of service calls a month and after that she will have to hire outside help. There is no end to the heartache caused by her mad passion for this boy. Her brothers, both older, have tried to talk to her. Her friends have tried to make her see the problems she face if she continues to go with him. Nothing seerps to help. Seeking professional help is not the answer. We tried that, too. Should we give up and let ger go him freely so that the forbidden does not seem so Another Sad Mother DEAR MOTHER: A girl 58 is old enough to pick her own friends. My guess is that when you stop attacking her selection she will no longer need to defend it. This is often the case with who take up with undesirable com- pany. She'll probablv drop him when she'feels she can do so of her own volit on and not because YOU want her to. who never said one word about marriage. I felt as if someone had plunged a knife into my heart. I have lost nil con- fidence in this girl. She had me completely fooled. I could have sworn she wos a virgin. Should I go ahead and marry her and hope f can get over the disappointment? Still Upset DEAR S. U.: No. You'd probably have her figured as the town tramp the lirst time she smiled at the post- man. Go find yourself a lily- white maiden. Sir Galahad. I assume, of course, that you, too, are 100 per cent pure. Tuesday, September 4, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Dreams locate idol in By RAM SUNDAR CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) A village 30 miles from here has over- night become a major attract- ion for religious-minded people. Rain-swept Amboli is not only drawing Hindus and Christians from nearby areas but has be- come a focus of attention for the hundreds of Americans, Ca- nadians, Britons and French- men who have come to India in search of "spiritual harmony." It all happened when Gang- aram Pawar, an Amboli farmer, claimed that he was commanded by God Shiva to search for a holy idol in the lo- cal pond. "God Shiva came to me in my dream and asked me to find the idol and instal it in a spe- cial Pawar said. The farmer immediately be- came the butt of ridicule. Chil- dren teased him when he walked through the streets of Amboli. For several days Pa- war had to hide in his farm in order to escape the unwelcome public attention. PERSISTED IN BELIEF But he persisted' in his belief that a Shiva idol lay embedded in the pond. One evening an American vis- itor came to the village. Her name was Jane Silverman, a Californian who has been stay- ing in a Hindu monastery in the Himalayan mountains for some years. Miss Silverman approached the village pradhan (chief offi- cer) and asked for help in searching the bed of the pond. She claimed she also had a dream in which God Shiva com- manded her to find the idol and build a temple for it. The whole hamlet was elec- trified. The overjoyed Pawar organized a big team of divers and within 48 hours a magnifi- cent Shiva idol was fished out the old pond. "It's dream come commented Bombay Free Press Journal. Several members of the Bcnibay municipal corpo- ration have visited Amboli to worship the idol and to assure the local villagers of their read- iness to campaign for funds to build the proposed temple. CAME TO PRAY Meanwhile, many Americans, Canadians and other foreigners have been going to Amboli to pray before the idol, now in- stalled in a temporary shed. All these foreigners are converts to Hinduism like Miss Jane Silver- man.

A few months ago she and her little girl packed their suit- cases and headed north from Vancouver. Yellow knife, she said, is a better place to raise children. "I came looking for an out- door job.

They had no objection to hiring women, if they were interested and capable, they said, but no women had asked before. Sarah seeks freedom of choice in her work. i There arc lew interesting jobs for women, she said. Most of them are drags to do." Sarah considers Yellovvknife a male-oriented community and has sympathy for the men. "The status of women isn't that hot... but then again, the status of men isnt that hot ei- ther."

EDMONTON (CF) Jfhiio-i mene Ross, a native Indian wo- man married to a whie man, has applied for landed immi- grant status in an attempt to clarify her existing status. Mrs. Ross, a member of na- tive groups lobbying to regain women's rights, said she made the application in an attempt to regain her status as a Treaty Indian. "I'm tired of being told, even by Indian organizations, that I'm said Mrs. Ross, married in 1955. Her move was in response to a decision by the Supreme Court of Canada this week up- holding the section of the Indian Act that says women who mar- ry non-Indians lose their treaty status. Indian men who enter mixed marriages retain their treaty rights. Mrs. Ross said in an inter- view that she wants a card rec- ognizing her as a Canadian Indian. She now has a certifi- cate from the Indian affairs branch that says she is "deem- ed not to be an Indian within the meaning of the Indian Act or any other statute or law." If her application is turned down by immigration, Mrs. Ross said, she plans to ask for deportation to England. "Maybe the Queen would grant me some status." Saltfish trade declines HALIFAX (CP) The smell Mr. Johnson said the decline of saltfish is gone from down- town Halifax. The saltfish trade was once a major local industry, but now was brought about by a series of developments in the city and in the industry. In the industry, tastes of the seven saltfish export I changed from salt cod to fresh houses that once clotted the fish, waterfront are gone and one of these has switched to mostly fresh fish. R. F. Johnson, secretary- manager of the Nova Scotia Fish Packers Association, re- members the talgia. His 20 years as manager of fisheries associations in the At- lantic region spans the decline of the saltfish trade and of Hali- fax as a fishing industry port. RELAXED ATMOSPHERE HALIFAX (CP) An experi- ment at William Ross elemen- tary school has created a more relaxed atmosphere in the class- rooms. Students at the school, as well as the teachers, are sub- jected to constant music piped into the classrooms. Winston Hendsbee, supervising principal of the school, said the notable results so far have been to lessen the headache-creating ir- ritants of dropped pencils, scraping chairs and page turn- ings on staff ears. helping defrost the freezer. the Canadian Saltfish Corp. was created in New- foundland and the fish-process- ing industry shifted more of its emphasis to Lunenburg, N.S. In the city, rising property values on the waterfront corn- smell with nos-! bined with difficulties in finding local crews for fishing boats to discourage the industry. The decline has hit all phases of the fishing industry in Hali- fax, but has been most drama- tic in the saltfish trade. When Mr. Johnson became a fisheries association manager in 1950 the saltfish trade was at its peak, with Cuba as the major market for Nova Scotia salt cod. The decline began with a change in tastes from saltfish to fresh and a preference by fish- ermen for selling fresh fish rather than to salt down their catches. It was aggravated by the Castro revolution in Cuba which left the Caribbean coun- try short of cash after 1959. The final blow was the crea- tion in 3970 of the Canadian Corp., a Crown com- pany that has the exclusive right to market all the saltfish produced in Newfoundland and on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Nova Scotia had the option to join tha corporation, but de- cided against it. This put Nova Scotia outside the corporation's trade area. Unnecessary toothbrush TORONTO (CP) Dentists manning a dental health booth at the Canadian Na- tional Exhibition say they are surprised at the number of persons who don't brush their teeth. "We have people coming in here who say they only brush their teeth Sunday said one dentist. Another said a nine-year-old boy told him he doesn't even own a toothbrush because his father doesn't think he needs one. The booth is sponsored by the Canadian Dental Associ- ation and is manned by den- tists assisted by a group of students working on an Op- portunities for Youth grant. Those manning the booth of- fer advice on how to prevent dental disease. Airs. Koss paid for the right to complete forms applying for Canadian citizenship. "I asked the man to put 'Canadian Indian' on the paper but he said they can't do that. I still want to be legally recog- nized as an Indian." Mrs. Ross said the Supreme Court of Canada ruling Monday that Jeanette Corbiere Lavell, an Ojibwa woman, lost her treaty rights in 1370 when she married a white man means Indian women are discrimin- ated against "by the courts as well as by our own people and white society and as women." native of Vancouver, said she planned to return to Canada to collect donations from her coun- trymen. Miss Hopkins said that she was doing odd jobs including teaching and typing in Canada and the U.S. "before I received spiritual vibrations from In- dia." But there is some opposition in Amboli to associating for- eigners with the temple-building work. "We don't want foreign money to build a Hindu said Tukaram Moray, a local resident. "The opposition will appear said Miss Hop- kins. "We are all genuine Hin. QUS.'' Unexpected MEXICO CITY (AP) Three scientists reported today that there was a lot less sexual ac- tivity than anticipated among the six women and five men who crossed the Atlantic on tha raft Acali. "Although many of the ex- perimental manipulations had been explicitly designed to in- crease opportunities for hetero- sexual behavior, there was even less sexual activity than might have been expected under 'nor- mal' sociologist A. Paul Hart wrote after inter- viewing the crew. 'lost of the crew were young people travelling without their spouses. Santiago Genoves, the Mexi- can anthropologist who organ- ized the 101-day voyage from the Canary Islands to Mexico as an experiment in social rela- tions, said sexual inhibition re- suited partlv frrrn in- compatibility and partly from concern about nev.tpaper reac- tion. Genoves said ssxual activity may also have been limited be- cause of an intense family rela- tionship developed among the voyagers cooped up together on the 19-by-40-foot raft. To clarify status Philomene Ross, a native Indian woman married to a white, has applied foe landed immigrant status in an attempt to clarify her existing status, Mrs. Ross said she made the application in an attempt to regain her status as a treaty Indipn, which she lost by marrying a white man.
