Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR READERS: If the column today is macabre or depressing, 1 apologize to those of you who look (o me for a laugh. But I was deeply moved by a Kalamazoo teen-ager who asked me to reprint this fantasy which appeared in th? Tiger Tattler the school paper of Lawrence. Here it is. Title: In Love With Life or How It Would Be If I Were Killed In an Automobile Accident Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed with grief and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called "Traffic Fatalities." The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish 1 had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remem- ber how I wheedled the car out of Mom. "Special I pleaded. "All the kids drive." When the bell rang I threw my books in the locker. I was free until tomorrow morn- ing! I ran to Ihe parking lot excited at the thought of driv- ing a car and being my own boss. Free! It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goof- ing off going too fast. Taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom arid having fun. The last thing I remem- ber was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully Blow. I heard a deafening crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turn- ing inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. Then I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that 1 couldn't feel any- thing. Hey, don't pull that sheet over my head. I can't be dead. I'm only 17. I've got a date tonight. I'm supposed to grow up and have a wonderful life. I haven't lived yet. I can't be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks had to identify rr.e. Why did they have to see me like (his? Why did I have to look el Mom's eyes when she faced the most terrible or- deal of her life? Dad suddenly looked like an old man. He told the man in charge, "Yes he is our son." The funeral was a weird experience. 1 saw all my rela- tives and friends walk toward the casket. They passed by, one by one, and looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked away. Please somebody wake me up! Get me out of here. I can't bear to see my mom and dad so broken up. My grandparents are so racked with grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. And I can't believe it either. Please don't bury me! I'm not dead! 1 have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don't put me in the ground. I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I'll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God. I'm only 17. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently a woman wrote to you about her emotionally sick husband who earns a month but refuses to spend more than ?300 a month to live. Maybe my story will make her feel better. I, too have an emotionally sick husband. When he was young he was unbelievably poor. Today we are well fixed but he is so money conscious that he runs himself bowlegged buying secondhand junk and super "bargains." Our garage is filled with old musical instruments, bows and arrows, broken toys, trash from auctions and rummage sales, cracked pottery, rusty lawn furniture you name it and we've got it. Many of his "bargains" are in the original boxes, un- opened. The only way I could get away from the Junk was by taking a job as a day-maid for an airline steward who has a neat apartment. I need the "asylum." The only Uiing that keeps me going is the thought that I'll outlive this miser and be free of him ami (he junk. San Antonio DEAH S A.: What a way to live!

I nbig tomatoes! i I I'm thus reminded to answer! for you some questions which j have been posed to me. What causes pickles to be- ll conic soft? Inferior grades of vinegar i will cause this. Vinegars come in varying strengths of percen- tage often designated as grain strength. Vinegar of at least 4 to 6 per cent acidity aught to be used. It is too bad that our labelling is nol more informative on bottles of vine- gar. So remember to buy known brands and to add only the amount of water called for in a tested recjpe. As well as pre- serving the product vinegar modifies the taste. Cider vine- gar is difficult to buy at this time of year since it is pre- ferred for flavour. White vine- gar is stronger and harsher. However, it is often preferred when pickling light colored veg- etables as cauliflower and on- ions. Soft water is best for pick- ling because of its neutral chemical action. Crisp brined pickles are the resiill of a clev- er balance of salt, water and "Pin c nore on my lapel with my name and of employment for the bus driver.

The new agency, the family and community counselling ser- vices of Calgary, should make a better use of funds and pro- vide superior services, presi- cdent Glen Taylor said here. "The thinking is 10 have t centralized location for admin- istration but decentralized ser- vices info the neighborhoods." Among the services provided are counselling for married couples, families, parents, chil- dren and unattached indivi- duals. Sam Blakelv, director of city social services, said his depart- ment is working on elimination of ils preventive counselling di- vision with the load to go to the new agency. The federation's initial budget is with 39 per cent of this provided by the united fimd, 22 per cent by the city, 31 per cent from fees for ser- vice and eight per cent from church donations. ST.
