Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, SepHmber 9, 1971 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN: It Is Sunday afternoon, our 13-year-old boy went to a ballgame, the 10 and 12-year-old girls arc in the neighbor's pool anil my husband went lo his favorite tavern to get drunk. I am not writing to ask for advice. I am writing instead to thank you for the advice you gave me two years ago. A few years ago I would have been crying my eyes out, or pouring out my anger to a friend on the telephone. But today I am calm, content and very happy -with my life. Why? Because I listened to you and joined Al-Anon. Every woman who is married lo an alcoholic must at some point decide whether she is going to allow his problem to defeat her or learn liow to live wilh it. Since I joined AI-Anon I love and understand my husband more than ever. Our marriage is belter Mian most marriages where no drink- ing problem cxisls. Due to a marked change of attitude to- ward my husband, lie has become a belter father and a bet- ter person. At the moment my husband has expressed no interest in joining A A. I hope one day he will do so, but he must come to the decision himself. If he never comes to it, it's all right with me. I have leared to live with him and I appreciate the many ether wonderful blessings in my life. Please Ann, keep lelling people about AI-Anon. It's a life saver, both literally and figuratively in eveiy sense of the word. Gage Park Member. DEAR MEMBER: Not a week goes by that .1 don't re- ceive at least three or four letters from readers in praise of Al-Anon. For those who would like to write for literature, the address is: Al-Anon Family Group Headquarters, Inc., P.O. Box 182, Madison Square Station, New York, New York 10010. I urge you to do so. You have nothing to lose but the price of a stamp. i DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 48. My wife is 36. This is (he second lime around for bolh of us. Two of my buddies have beeji left by their and I have Just been lold I will be next unless I agree lo come straight home after work and give up stopping in bars for a few drinks and some re- laxation. J let my wife know that so long as I pay the rent and buy the groceries she has rio right to (ell me what to do. If 1 want to stop on my way home to unwind and relax wilh a few pals she shouldn't complain. She says she expects me lo act like a husband and that husbands belong home after work. 1 claim the bars are full of husbands who are stopping for a little sociability on their way hoii'e. Please let me know what you think, and if you're not on my side, skip it. I've got enough trouble now. Spike DEAR SPIKE: Sorry, I'm with her. Most of you char- acters who slop on the way home for "a little sociability" have no conception of time, and you don't know how to count drinks eilher Your wife didn't marry you so she could sit home and watch her dinner dry out while you "unwind" in some saloon. If you must have a belt after work have it at home where you belong. BINGO Scandinavian Hall 2Z9 J2th St. "C" N.

They spent just under ?4 million of taxpayers' money in 580 separate ways of their own choosing. They took children from pol- lution-ridden Hamilton out to Margaret Roy's farm for some fresh air and fun; lob- bied London businessmen to hire former psychiatric pa- tients; battled at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay to save the Newfoundland pine marten from extinction, and, all over Ontario, fought for clean air and water. They were the Ontario "kids" in this summer's fed- eral Opportunitie.'.- for Youth program and, mirrored in the bulky catalogue of projects they initiated and adminis- tered, are many of their so- cial values. Some, like deep concern with the state of the environ- ment, are well known. Others, especially an over- riding feeling for the plight of underprivileged children, may come as something of a sur- prise to the older generation. They launched innumerable programs to get city kids into the country, build recreational facilities for grade school- ers, take the handicapped on outings ano" try to help the menially retarded. STUDY POLLUTION "That's said Dave Aus- tin, OFY regional co-ordina- tor, pointing to s three-inch stack of mimeographed sheets on his desk. It was a list, by name, description, cost and number of people involved, of every OFY proj'St in Ontario. Some provoke smiles but defy criticism.

GREEN'S SHOES ON SIXTH STREET Drydcn, Ont: Regional Sports give Indi- ans of Lac Seul something to do. Financially, the biggest sin- gle grant in Canada was fo the Canadian Asso- ciation tor a Healthy Environ- ment at Windsor. It covers 49 individual environment pro- jects in Ontario, including oil spillage at Kingston, effects of Torimto urban growth and noise, mercury and phosphate pollution in the Windsor area. Near Wawa, 140 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, OFY joined the National Museum Board of Canadr and mem- bers of the Canadian Forces in a archeological ex- Big Dig. In the process, the site provided transient youth accommoda- tion in tents. Among the smaller grants, 15 young persons were in- volved In recreational devel- opment in Winona, with from the fund and eight oth- ers, with were doing similar work at Red Lake, 180 miles north of Fort Francis, near the Manitoba border. AID IN DRUG PROBLEMS Besides the children's pro- grams, environment is the other predominant category. There are dozens of pollu- tion and airii-pollution studies and campaigns, from an Ot- tawa group's efforts to de- velop a clean sleam engine to a beach cleanup at Scarbor- ough and a Windsor survey of what businessmen think of Pollution Probe. The problems of the youth subculture rank high. Drop-in centres, crisis intervention clinics, drug counselling serv- ices and street workers blos- somed under OFY from Kap- uskasing to Whitby and Lon- don to Nipigon. The actual cost of the On- tario projects was and, with many finished, or nearing comple- tion, provincial OFY officials are hoping lo preserve a per- fect record: Not one had to be cut off from funds for failure to fulfill ils contract. THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "It's spring fever think he caught it in trig spring of '54..." There were a few closs scrapes. Incluricd were two Guelph projects, a free store where used articles are dispensed to the needy, and Huckleberries, a recreational and nutritional aid program for children. Alf Hales, Conservative member of the Commons for Wellington, refused to present cheques for to the nutri- tion program and lo the store, saying the projects in- volved U.S. draft-dodgers and were extensions of one an- other Project officials, after an investigation, dismissed his conlentions and issued the cheques. I n Hamilton, Mjrtbword Magazine folded after only two of a planned three issues were published, because of lack of advertising. Tins did not violate its contract and any lefl-over funds will be re- lumed to OFY officials.
