Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurify, 13, 1973 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 25 The Herald" Family Ann Landers EAR ANN LANDERS: About that poor slob of a dad who wrote to complain that by the time he gets his new- spaper, it's been ripped to shreds by other members of the family: You told him to invest in another copy. In my humble opinion that was bum advice. You should have told him that if the fami- ly can't observe the common courtesy of waiting until everyone in the household has read the paper before they chop it up, the second paper should come out of the allowances of the clods who did the chopping. You blew it, Annie. Why don't you admit it? M. H. B. DEARM. H. B.: I blew it, and I'm 'fessing up. You and about other readers are absolutely right. Mea culpa, one and all. DEAR ANN LANDERS: We have been married seven years and are unable to have children. Medical work-ups have revealed that my hus- band is sterile. Adoption agen- cies tell us the waiting list is a mile long. They can promise nothing within the next three years, and will not accept any more applications. Our only recourse, if we wish to have a baby, is artificial insemination. My question to you is this: Who has to know? Family resemblance is very strong on my husband's side. They all look alike. What if the child looks nothing like my husband? Would they think I had cheated on him? Would the child have to know? What if he asks why he DEAR ANN LANDERS: is wrone with a husband who, before he sits down at the table, must move all the chairs so they are precisely the same distance from the table? Then he must rearrange the silverware so that every knife, fork and spoon is perfectly straight and equidistant from the other pieces of silver. He seems normal in every other respect, but I know this is an oddity. What causes it? Is it something that ought to be overcome? His Wife DEAR WIFE: Psychiatrists have a name for these acts: obsessive, compulsive ritual- making. Each of us has pet rituals. We think they will br- doesn't look like any of his relatives? And what if he should have some inherited tendency toward an illness that doesn't run in either of our families, such as diabetes, epilepsy, or an allergy? These questions might sound stupid but I really need some answers. Can you help put my mind at Lady DEAR LADY: Only TWO people have to know the details of your pregnancy. You and your husband. It's nobody else's business. Don't start "confiding" or you'll regret it. There is an old Chinese saying: "Three peo- ple can keep a secret if one is dead." ing us "good luck." Actually they are subconscious defences against routine anx- ieties, and nothing to worry about so long as they don't get out of control and interfere with our everyday living. Going to a wedding? Giving one? Or standing up in one? Even if you're already married Ann Lander's com- pletely new "The Bride's Guide" will answer questions about today's weddings.

But once he become one he succeeded because he had special qualities he had exhibited since childhood. In Weekend Magazine this Saturday, an excerpt from the book Stanfield, by Geoffrey Stevens, follows Bob Stanfield through his youth In Truro, N.S., and his years at university before he had any thoughts of becoming a politician.

At the presentation in Quebec City, left, is Robert d'Avignon, provincial director of income tax and right, Mr. E. B. Armstrong, deputy minister of national revenue. Easier to get started in small weather office MOOSE JAW (CP) The term weatherman may have to be replaced by weatherperson at Canadian Forces Base Moose Jaw, where Donna Whitehill has joined the meteorology staff. The petite brunette is one of the few women meteorologists in Canada and the first civilian woman to live at the base, a fact she says "may take some getting used to by many people." A general science graduate from the University of Winni- peg, Miss Whitehill originally wanted to be a teacher but had to consider other occupations because of the teacher sur- plus. She read a bulletin by the federal environment department's atmospheric en- vironment services research and training division which in- vited students to apply for meteorology training. In an interview later, she was selected for a nine-month course in Toronto which guar- anteed a job after successful completion. EXPECTS MORE JOBS Job openings in meteorology will probably increase during the next few years when weathermen who began their careers during the Second World War retire, said Miss Whitehill. But meteorology is a profes- sion usually overlooked by young people. "Everyone listens to the daily weather forecast but they rarely stop to consider where it comes from." Placement officers at the Toronto school ask students where they would like to work and "try to get you as close as they can to the centre you choose." Miss Whitehill said her first preference was Winnipeg, but she is glad to be working in a relatively small weather of- fice where "it's a bit easier to get started." The Winnipeg office dis- tributes forecasts for all of Manitoba and northern On- tario, while the Moose Jaw bureau is concerned only with the area around the city. Moose Jaw personnel also provide weather service for pilots planning trips in the area Miss Whitehill said she may join the Canadian Forces to travel overseas as a mete- orologist, something no Cana- dian woman has ever done. But most likely she will be- come a meteorology instruc- tor, fulfilling her original desire to teach. wedding anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Frank DeCecco of Coleman recently marked their 50th wedding anniversary with an open house held at their home. Over 100 friends and relatives attended and congratulatory telegrams were received from Prime Minister Tructeau, Lieutenant Governor MacEwen, Governor General Michener and Premier Lougheed. Mr. and Mrs. DeCecco were born in Italy and were married there. Mr. DeCecco moved to Canada in 1923, settling in Coleman and was joined by his wife, Luchia in 1924. He worked as a stonemason and brick layer for the International mine for 39 years until his retirement in 1962. Mr. DeCecco is 74 years old and Mrs. DeCecco is 70. They have two sons, Alvino of Edmonton and Hector of Calgary. The couple has four grandchildren.
