Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, Seplembir II, 1971- Ann Landers DEAR ANN ALNDERS' As I write this letter I have the feeling I am speaking for thousands of others who are in the same boat. I'm male, approaching 40, been married about 17 years. We have three children, a paid-for home, middle-Income bracket, well-entrenched in a career. Problem: The wife: I look back at our romance. I was 21. She was 20, pretty, slender (117 happy to get in Ihc car and go for a drive anywhere. Loved to walk. Enjoyed swimming, biking. Everything was fun. Today she weighs 150 at least. Won't walk anyplace. Hasn't been on a bike or in a swim suit in 10 Car riding makes her sick. Screams at the kids incessantly. Has gone on 10 diets and can't stay with it, Her life is wrapped around her card club, her telephone yakking, girl friends, clothes and the hairdresser. She doesn't care for cooking art! I'm lired of talking about it so we settle for hamburgers and French fries which she askes me to pick up at the drive-in on my way home. When I hear her on the phone gossiping about the latest divorce, I wonder what she'd say if slw knew I had con- sidered it many times. Too bad these women don't see the trouble until it's too late. Sign me Husband DEAIt HUSBAND: Here's your letter, but don't expect the wife to recognize herself. Why not slip this column in the bag the next time she asks you to bring home some hamburgers from the drive-in? Let it be her dessert DEAR ANN LANDERS: I see so many things wrong with the way my son's wife is raising her children that it makes rr.e miserable. Today's mothers are so puffed up with psy- chology and book-learned nonsense that they make dreadful mistakes. When we were kids if we said a dirty word we caught it right in the mouth. Now our grandchildren blurt out disgusting things and my daughler-in-law says, "we don't use that and she just changes the subject. I wrote about this problem last year and you told me to keep quiet unless I was asked. Maybe when you have grandchildren of your own you'll change your mind. Please let me know. L. DEAR U. I HAVE grandchildren, the same ones I had last year and my advice is the same. Keep quiet unless osked. Most authorities believe kids use dirty words as an attention-getting device. They want a reaction. Your daughter- in-law's approach is a good one. Let her alone. Please send inquiries and requests to Landers Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., Chicago, fll. 60611. I Alberta NewStart training j A Calendar Of Local happenings could benefit southern area By MAUREEN JAMIESON" SMI Writer Has Alberta NewStart bene- fited native people in the north- em areas of the province? What vajue would it have here in the south? NewStart is a govern- ment research program design- ed to upgrade education and training in economically de- pressed northern regions. Mrs. Bertha Clark, newly- appointed member of Die U o! A senate and full time counsel- lor with NewStart, in Leth- bridge for the Voice of Alberta Native Women's Society human relations workshop, claims the program could be easily adapt- ed to meet the needs of native people in Ihe south. In 1968 Mrs. Clark officially surveyed the problems of north- em native people, and the New- Start program was inaugurated lo help the people transfer from lo a more productive way of life. The venture is underwritten by both federal and provincial governments and operates with 80 per cent native staff. In the first six months, mobile units were sent to Janvier, Kikino and Fort Chipewyan. Local men were introduced lo capsule samples of various trades while the woman discussed home economics. All eligible and interested families moved to NewStart training residences in Fort Mc- Murray, The men attended the Adult Vocalional Training Cen- tre for technical studies. Wo- men were oriented in commun- ity affairs by NewSlart, which also provided courses In dom- estic planning and economy, first aid, beauty culture and driver training. The majority of trainees have completed their trade courses, but because of the very high unemployment rale in the area many are working at less skilled jobs. There have been dropouLs, Mrs. Clark admits, but some have returned and completed their courses, and others she has spoken to n'ere anxious lo be reinstated. NewStart, being strictly a re- search program, will be phased out in December, then evalu- ated by government personnel. "I do hope another agency comes into effect before New- Start phases says Mrs. Clark. "This is the only family training program in the area, and trainees are concerned about being put oul of their homes before their training is over." She added that she felt it would be hard for the men to leave families in isolated areas and go by themselves to Fort McMurray lo take their train- Uie south? According to Mrs. Clark It could be of immense service, because even though I distances here are not a serious problem to native psople, the sense of isolation is.

Three of the resolutions ap- proved by delegates, who repre- sent Catholic women across Canada, asked members lo take individual action. "It is getting increasingly dif- ficult for children to attend wholesome movies because rtost movies today are classi- fied adult or restricted adult and are unsuitable for children, because of the use of offensive language and over-emphasis on sex and said resolu- tions chairman Mrs. J. J. Mat- thews of Toronto. Members and their families were urged to show support for good films at local theatres and to indicate their approval to the manager or production com- pany. The CBC was criticized in an- other resolution for programs where guests "leave the impres- sion that most people are drug addicts or seek reform through revolutionary procedures." The resolulion asked mem- bers to urge CBC authorities lo present a truer picture of peo- ple. CRITICIZE ADS Television advert i s i n g di- rected toward children is often "high pressure and of detrimen- tal said a third resolu- tion. Members were told to let sta- tions know when they are satis- fied and to express displeasure against high-pressure commer- cials, both to the station and the manufacturer. "Their roots go deeply in Can- she said, asking that Eng- lish-speaking Canadians "rid their minds" of the false picture of all Quebec's young people as separatist revolutionaries.

Founder of the organization, Jliolher Ter- esa, was the first recipient of the Pope John XXIII peace prize and the C1VL liad honored her at this convention. The telegram said: "The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being un- wanted, uncared for and de- serted by everybody."
