Maybe they look mean, but they are "NOT a "killer" breed. You didn't help the cause any with that letter from "Scared Stiff" who is married to a psychopath. Many people buy Dober- mans Shepherds, tie or chain them up. or fence them in a small, inade- quate space and then forget about them. No pet will be lov- Dear Ann Landers: You have some nerve telling "Scared Stiff" that the Doberman should have a muzzle. It's her crazy husband who needs one. How could you have suggested such a thing for such a beautiful animal? That woman should get rid of her drunken idiot of a husband. Dear Ann Landers: My favorite aunt used to say, "Better never than but I don't agree. Please forgive me for the shameful time lag, but it's taken me till now to get up the nerve to write this letter. I want to comment on the daughter-in-law who wouldn't allow her husband to take his mother out on Mother's Day. For many years I was married to a man whose max- imum expression of apprecia- tion was a card and an apology. He was always a lit- tle short on money and couldn't buy me a gift or take me out. Incidentally, Ann, he was one of the smoothest talkers and biggest liars on the face of the earth. Guess who saved from the grocery money, to send gifts ing or gentle if he is treated like that. I hope "Scared Stiff" will not take her anxiety out on the dog. What she needs is to get rid of her husband. The law should deal sternly with a nut who would turn a trained animal on his wife. A Dobe's Friend In Indiana Dear Friend: I didn't know how many people loved Dobermans until after "Scared Stiff's" letter appeared. Here's another. There is no breed alive as sweet and gentle as the Doberman and I know because I have one. V.R. (age Garden City, L.I. Dear V.R.: Thanks, honey. Your Doberman is a lucky dog to have such a devoted master. That was a sweet letter. to his mother on her birthday and Mother's Day? Right. I did. Guess who got the words of praise for being such a thoughtful, considerate son? Right again. Him. I finally wised up and stopped being a damn fool. Since there are millions of similar damn fools around I hope you'll tell them not to wait until they have children and get hopelessly trapped into staying with a selfish, mealy-mouthed man. These women always end up giving 101 per cent and they get zilch in return. A Victim Of My Dumb Mistakes Dear Vic: Your first mis- take was in the selection. After that, "troubles came not in single spies but in bat- talions." Thanks for writing. vwv A no-nonsense approach to how to deal with life's most difficult and most rewarding arrangement.

SPECIAL Deposit (At all participating dealers) The Herald" Family Art foundation seeks local work By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer The search for visual art by Alberta artists was brought to Lethbridge last evenings at an informal meeting of area ar- tists and board members of the Alberta Art Foundation. The meeting, which marked the first time the foundation had looked to the southern portion of the province, for art works was held to "hear from the people of Lethbridge about their works, their thoughts and feelings about the foun- dation" according to Bill McMullen. board chairman. He stated the objectives of the year-old foundation as be- ing the establishment of an Alberta collection of art. mak- ing such art available to the public and encouraging Alberta artists. "All of this is in the public explained Mr. McMullen, "and we are here not to talk to you about the foundation, but to talk with you and to listen to your ideas. "We want to discover what is going on in Lethbridge regarding the visual arts." He added that the group is looking for "pretty worthy works" for the purposes of display, teaching, for use in shopping centres, hospitals and-galleries. "We're committed to the concept that these works shouldn't be in a vault in the basement, but available to the people of Alberta to get it out and make the artist and the public proud of it." The foundation, which works out of Edmonton, was brought into being through government legislation and although it was initiated through the Department of Culture, Youth and Recreation. works independently of it.

The foundation has no capacity to offer awards, grants or scholarships and covers only a select area of art. Included are the fields of painting, drawing, sketching, ceramics, fabrics and sculp- ture. At this time. Mr. McMullen said, areas not covered include photography, interior design and industrial design, as well as others. The foundation consists of a board of directors and com- mittee members who recom- mend pieces for purchase, while board members make the final decisions on purchases. Members of the board are appointed for a three-year term of office, with new ap- pointments occurring each year. Those presently serving as members are represen- tative of "artists and laymen with no formal background in art. but interests vary from the intense to the casual." Mr. McMullen said the foun- dation is looking for the works of well established mature artists, in terms of ex- pression not age; as well as covering the field of the emerging artist not yet recognized "Presently we have about 400 pieces." added Mr. McMullen. "of which 140 will be displayed at our first show- ing Oct.'2 through 10 at the Calgary Jubilee Auditorium. "Premier Lougheed will be attending the grand opening on Oct. 4 and the show will move to Edmonton's Auditorium the following week."

Kagin started using a wind- mill capable of producing 12 volts of electric current two years ago to run the lights, television and other appli- ances in his house. Last week, he installed a 120-volt model to power his of- fice building, which serves as a dance hall on weekends. "It's a good answer for the energy crisis." the 27-vear-old Kagin said here. "It's work- ing beautifully and already it's become a landmark in Kagin said he is estab- lishing the Real Gas and Electric Co. to distribute the Australian-built windmills and to explore other answers to the energy shortage. He said wind power is clean, causes no damage to the en- vironment and makes use of an inexhaustible resource instead of resources that are running low. The larger windmill, which Kagin said resembles a "modern kinetic is 40 feet tall. The three blades are 11 feet in diameter and are designed to withstand winds of up to 200 m.p.h. "The wind pushes the pro- pellers Kagin said.
