Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: From time to lime you print letters from girls who ask if they should tell their prospective husbands about a past love affair. You wisely tell them, "Keep quiet. A man should be willing to accept a woman as she is for the person she is today. Her past is nobody's business." It's a funny thing about men from age IS until they die, they use every trick in the book to get a girl to give in and even consider themselves more manly every time they score, But when Lhey get ready to pick a wife, she'd belter be a virgin or she'll have to put up with Ills lip forever. I say nearly all women are as pure as 99 per cent of the men they marry. If a girl volunteers any information about her past indiscretions she deserves what she gels. Furthermore, any r.ian who asks such question should be told to get lost. He wouldn't believe her no matter what she said. And it's an even bet he's looking for an excuse to bail out. Pisces In Portland DEAR PI: Thank you for a good job o! re-emphasizing a point worth making 'again and again. You speak Hie truth. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The man I'm going with is 30 years old. His father died when he was 13. His mother won't let him live his own life. The problem Is sleeping pills. He eats them like candy. He is in a daze most of the time. His mother's cousin is a druggist and she gels pills for next to nothing no prescription. He is also a big beer drinker. I've read in your column that people who take pills should not mix them with liquor because the combination could be dead- ly. I've clipped those columns and showed them to him. He says beer doesn't count. Is he right? Belinda DEAR BEL: He's wrong. Beer contains alcohol and if he drinks enough beer he can get just as bombed as if he were drinking gin. Pills and beer can be a lethal combination. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This Isn't B serious problem, but it bugs me because I know sometliing is wrong and I'm not sure what should be done about it. Peter and I plan to be married within the next six months. We have lunch together every day and we meet every evening after work. We eat dinner together almost every night and visit till midnight or a.m. On weekends we spend all our time together. So what's bad about that? Nothing, except I suddenly re- alized when I started to think about plans for the wedding that I don't have any girl friends. For the last three years I've been saying no to everybody but Peter. The girls I work with are nice but I never see them except in the office. We are all busy during working hours so there's no time to get acquainted. Do you feel T am making a mistake? To be truthful I'd rather be with Peter than anybody, but maybe this isn't the best thing for our relationship. Please guide me. Love Him Best DEAR LOVE: You and Peler will enjoy each other more If you broaden your acquaintanceship to include others. Start by having lunch every other day with some of the girls. And mt evening a week you and Peter should go your separate ways for some cultural, political, athletic, intellec- tual. You'll be more Interesting to one anotlier. Too much togetherness can stifle individual growth. Please send inquiries and requests In lenders Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., ChkJgo. III. 60011.

EDMONTON (CP) Par- ker Stewart was born a mon- goloid 38 years ago and doc- tors considered him a com- plete idiot with no hope of im- provement. His mother, Winuifred, was told ho had only tlu-ee years to live and with that knowl- edge, most parents would have lost hope. But not the woman who later was to have a great impact on the public attitude toward mental retar- dation. "There was no room for bit- was too sweet. Parker was just another baby who needed the same love, care and guidance as any other child." Mrs. Stewart had a single- minded provide ier son with a "happy and productive life." She knew from her nursing experience that most mongo- loid children die early of re- spiratory failure due to inac- tivity and was determined to overcome this problem by keeping him physically and mentally active. Her son sur- vived, WOULD NEVER WALK Her efforts rewarded when, contrary to the doctors warning that her son woulc never walk, Parker took his first steps at 18 months. A daily routine slowly evolved that later formed the basis of an education program used in 16 schools for the mentally retarded across Can- ada and in several schools outside the country. Parker's environment be- came his classroom. Mea times taught him manners and involved him with house- hold chores.

She the neighborhood children to play with Parker by joining with him in their games. ''I refused to deny him an ex- perience. He had to learn to live n his environment even if it meant a few bumps and n-uises." LEARNED TO TALK At seven, Parker had learned to talk and she at- tempted to enrol him in public school. Bul the principal told her the system was not adap- ted to teaching mongoloid children. In January, 1950, a chance meeting with the local director a the Society for the Physi- cally Handicapped led to a public flowering of Mrs. Ste- wart's ideas for educating the retarded. When informed of her de- sire to organize a program for tlie mentally handicapped, ha provided the names of six parents in a similar situation. A short time later, these same six parents and four other in- terested persons met in Mrs. Stewart's home and the Ed- monton Association for Re- tarded Children was born.

"My biggest problem was, and still is, to make people realize the retarded are in- dividual human beings with every right to be happy and useful citizens." In March, 1954, she was in- vited to speak before the Al- berta legislature. "T told the legislators the retarded had been cheated of their birthright.
