Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I know I'll never see this letter in the paper because you have it in your head that homosexuals are sick and you print only those letters that make us look like a pack of miserable, wretched, limp-wristed. light- footed, wand-carrying, screaming fags. You repeatedly advise homosex- uals to "seek counselling, get therapy, stop hating yourself" more rubbish, more non- sense, blah blah. I am a homosexual, male, age 35. well-adjusted and hap- py. I've never been in trouble with the law, have an ex- cellent business and have had the same lover for eight years.-We enjoy a far better relationship (certainly more faithful) than most of the married people we know. I wouldn't trade my life for anything. I'm content and at peace with myself. My only regret is that I wasted so many years trying to cover up by dating stupid, boring women. I have no need ior a shrink, so please stop trying to send me to one The Good Life In San Francisco Dear Good Life: You are a rarity, whether you know it or not. Most closet queens are not content and at peace with themselves nor are they faithful to one lover. They are tortured, miserable and lonely and would give anything in the world to be straight. Dear Ann Landers: This letter is for that complaining secretary whose boss takes off his shoes during dictation and cracks his toes. She said it drives her crazy. At this moment MY boss is cutting his toenails and I am take dictation. I will tape a few toenail clippings to this letter to prove it Rail- ing In Raleigh Dear Railing: Readers have sent me samples ol pot, pills. hair and even insects for iden- tification, but this is the first time I have ever received toenail clippings. Who was it that said, "if you live long enough, eventually you'll see Dear Ann Landers: Regarding the physician who told his wife about women patients who made passes at him and she spread the word to her bridge club: He should re-read this portion of the Hip- pocratic Oath which he swore to uphold when he entered the practice of medicine: "Whatsoever in my prac- tice, or not in my practice, lhat I see or hear amid the lives of men which ought not to be noised about, I will keep silent, and hold such things as unfitting to be spoke."

Bilingualism aids learning process EDMONTON A University of Alberta professor said last week that bilingual children probably understand concepts faster than unilingua! youngsters. But this often works to the disadvantage of bilingual students, who must wait for other students to catch up. Bruce Bian told a conference on bilmgualism and its im- plications for education in Western Canada. Dr. Bain, an educational psychologist, also said bilingual children have a significant advantage over their unilingual peers in sen- sitivity to emotional ex- pression. His study, the first to be presented to the more than 300 delegates, took about nine months to complete and used bilingual and unilingual Ed- monton children. "You'll find a bilingual kid picks up things more quickly than a unilingual kid but it's to his disadvantage." Dr. Bain said alter delivering his paper. Once the bilingual child has grasped the concept he must wait lor the others in his class THE BETTER HALF to "catch up." the trilingual psychologist said. "I'm- not saying that the bilingual kid is smarter, and I must emphasize that. But he does manage to grasp ideas a lot faster. "Once the concept is learned, it is the same for both the bilingual and the un- ilingual." Dr. Bain said if "you only know one language, then you know that language poorly." "It takes knowledge of at least two languages to fully understand one." He compared the language a person knows to a "sym- bolic map" with holes in it. If two languages are understood. "the holes tend to cancel one another out to a certain ex- tent." "It's like a fish net. With one language the holes in the net are large but with two languages the mesh is much more line." And with a "fine net" one can catch all of the nuances of words. Dr. Bain explained. "It's obvious that a person is enriched culturally by knowing two languages, but he is also changing the way in which he thinks." Dr. Bain By Barnes said. A bilingual person is generally more flexible, or has a "certain kind of plasticity, less than a unilingual person. "I'm not saying that he isn't going to slash your throat, but I think he will pause before do- ing it. The bilingual adult is more able to look at the alter- natives." presbyteries to stress involvement "You shouldn't let the fact that, QUOTE, don't speak UNQUOTE, keep you from visiting Canada." CALENDARS Closer work among the United Church presbyteries and a building of confidence at the congregational level are seen as priorities for the coin- ing years by Rev. Philip A.
