Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAH ANN LANDERS: We liave four sons under 11 years of age and our place is headquarters for all the boys in the neighborhood. We've had as many as twenty kids in our rec room at one time. Tliis soimds great, but it has Its drawbacks. The mother of one of the boys who was here last week is furious with me. It seems her son Jimmy was horsing around in our back- yard, and tie ran into a post and knocked out a front tooth. Jimmy is 11 years old and (lie tooth was, unfortunately, a permanent one. I felt awful about it, put some cold com- presses on (he boy's mouth and sent him home. His mother called me a few hours later, wild with an- ger. "Where's Jimmy's she asked. "How do I I replied. "Go out and find she screamed. "It can be transplanted." We have half an acre, Ann. Hunting for a kid's tooth out there was ridiculous. But I said I'd try, and I did. Of course I didn't have any luck. I'd like to know if I HAD found the tooth, could it have been successfully transported? I've never heard of such a N.Y. DEAR CORN: Dr. Paul Golcthaber, Dean of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine says a knocked-out toolli can be successfully "re-planted" if the root is kept moist and intact in a weak salt solution and the tooth and the patient arc in the dentist's office within 24 hours. He made it clear, however, that the tooth will probably not last more than five or six years but these are important years in the den- tal.history of an adolescent, and it's worth the trouble. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a beautiful 19-year-old sister. Everyone tells her how pretty she is and she eats it up. She has a super boyfriend. I'm 17, a pimple-faced freak, miserable and unhappy. 1 used to have a darling steady but he told someone my complexion was so sickening he was embarrassed to be seen with me. The friend who re- peated this to me was not trying U> be mean. She just wanted me to know I lost the guy because of my skin and not because I was dumb or boring. What can 1 do? I've sent away tor every "cure" under the sun. I've scrubbed my face raw with alcohol, laundry name it, Ann, I've tried it. Mom says I'll grow out of it. I can't wait that long. Please help Mess DEAR FRIEND: See a skin specialist and stop fooling around. Thousands of kids with acne have been helped and you can be among them. Get yourself an appointment at once. Confidential to Friendly Al: Stop being so "friendly" or you'll wind up paying her bills again, Dummy. ____F.iJqy, S.pl.mb.r Jf, THl LCTHBRIDOE HERAIO 15 Barriers must be broken down GREAT WEATHER For those who plan on sliding down the" nearest hill. A little bil of snow hasn't stopped the adventurous before, and Michael, left, and Mamie Sanders are no exception. After-school hours are still sunny ond too good to be wasted, so why not enjoy ihe chilly opportunity? Bill Groenen, photo Colleclor's Choice clears TORONTO Dr. Roger Gaudry, chairman of the Sci- ence Council of Canada, has called for greater co-operation among governments, industry and universities to formulate science policies. In on address to the Cana- dian Chemical Engineering Conference, Dr. Gaudry said: "Whatever barriers exist be- tween them must he broken down; good lines of commu- nications must be estabished leading to interactions that will be of mutual benefit to these three sectors." Dr. Gaudry said there is spe- cial need for better co-oper- ation between industry and uni- versities. Areas that should be explored, be said, are industrial research in the universities, the use of faculty members as in- dustrial or management con- sultants and the role of univer- sities in retraining and educa- tional extension programs. "Indeed, the Science Council is engaged in a study of the in- terface problems between thosa two sectors, and I hope will shortly be publishing the re- sults of the study with appro- priate recommendations oo how to improve the links between them." Dr. Gaudry said industry and government must work closely together if they are to come up with policies to assist the man- ufacturing sector. "If this is to be achieved, each must have the sympa- thetic understanding of iha problems besetting the other." The conference was sponsored by the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering and thfl Canadian Chemical Producers' Association. Rearing children worldwide problem Auction raises money for good cause By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) If your group is looking for a way to raise large amounts of money, a serious auction is one possi- bility. The first Collector's Choice LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner By DORA DEVEIINICIIUK Kate Andrews High School Sept. 5 Kate Andrews came alive with the energy tlte students not yet worn off by the summer holidays, but it didn't take the teachers long to hobble it down. We soon came to realize that the glorious days of summer had now come to an end, and the routine of school had begun for another year. We now remini.sce about the two months rest from the books by telling our friends of our wonderful adventures or by drifting off into a day dream in a "boring" class or n study period. Day numlier one began uith the planning of our schedules. The first thing to go wrong is you forgot what courses you signed up for in June. After picking your brain for awhile I she. you finally remember them. Your third class is a spare Now that your first, conflict is I so now you c-an decide what remedied, problems two I you're going to lake in your The next activity that awaits you is an assembly in the gym. This is the meeting place of students and teachers where everybody meekly walks in and stampedes out. Mr. Featherstone welcomes the student body and Ihe staff, tlie courses are discussed and n run-through of the first sem- ester is planned. So it's off to first class. In the Kail you try to gel Into an upstream current bu: it's all down. You make it, a little shattered but you're there. Now comes the shock. You're told to be ready to start tomorrow. Then you move on to second class, your worst subject Eng- lish, and who is in the same auction held in 1964 to raise scholarship money for the Na- tional Ballet School, cleared about Tlic last one cleared about Mrs. J. F. Barrett says it takes about two years to or- ganize the auction, and about 600 to BOO items. This year's auction is being held Oct. 12. Mrs. Barrett says she got in- terested in the auction idea af- ter she became a one-woman committee in search of scholar- ship money for the ballet school. The school takes stu dents who audition across the country, and gives them a full grade school and high school education as well as ballet training. "I found there was no schol- arship money available from corporations and foundations >ecause they've geared for col-1 ege level. On an individual' basis I found people sometimes didn't want to risk money on a who looks good at age seven, but might grow too (all or too heavy or not look so good by 14 or so. It's one rea- son they are given a good edu- cation, so they aren't in a dead end." She searched for a way to raise funds less directly, and came on the auction idea. "I thought, surely it's easier to give a thing from your house that you mightn't want, than it is to give money. It's so com- mon now that it doesn't seem odd, but it did then. People told me no one would give us any- thing worth having." The first auction drew a 19th-century copper wine ewer that sold Vor S50, an early Ca- nadian par1, dinner service in ironstone that sold for a Nova Scotia cherry Pembroke table that sold for paint- ings and sketches including some Group of Seven. "You can auction about 100 items in two to three hours. If you're Sotiiebys dealing in mil- lion dollar diamonds, you might sell more. We aim at 2Vi hours, because people begin to leave. "We decided that unless an object was worth over a cer- tain amount, there is no good taking up the time to auction it. Time equals money, so we prefer not to auction anything less than Before the first auction, a working committee was form- ed, the women's committee of Ihe National Ballet School Scholarship Fund. A committee of experts also was pressed into service to help appraise the value of the items donated. Owners are not always aware of the current market vclue of the things they offer. Mrs. Barrett says they have been given receipts for income tax deductions for the amount the item sold for. She says the 100 best items are chosen for the auction, not necessarily the 100 highest priced. The remaining items are divided into two categories and sold during the 10-day auc- tion preview period. Mrs. Barrett says they have been able to borrow stores and, once, a vacant house for (he previews. Volunteer labor plus one moving crew have moved the things from there to the auction room. Expenses include insurance, security guards, the carefully- chosen auctioneer. The commit- tee charges a fee to gel into tlic auction partly to defray ex- penses, partly to be sure most of the people there have a real interest in buying .something, and are not taking up valuable seating space just watching. _--V calenda local naei: of class you?

All over tin; world there is ne question common to the hu- an condition: How do you ring up children? And all over the world, an .ssociated Press survey finds a rental confusion. Parents try bring up their children as icy were brought up, or as hey wish they were brought p, or as government tells icm to bring them up. The les is either that nothing vorks. or anything works. In West Germany, for in- tance, studies show thai 50 to id per cenl of parents think it s useful to beat their children. "I don't mean just a cuff on he says K. H. von Ra- jenau. child psychologist at the University Clinic, Frankfurt. "I mean beating with a stick, or :ven a board." You also find a counterpart n permissiveness.

Some think it normal for young ttudents to strike against school authorities, while others are so strict that they teach little boys he courtesy of kissing a lady's land. In the Soviet Union a child is aught to behave and not ask questions. That this tradition is not 100 >er cent effective is indicated jy the fact that some dissidents lave emerged from a purely Soviet education. But the Soviet Union shows little of the public groping to- ward change that appeared In an inquiry among half a dozen other, non-Communist. coun- tries, Among them Ihe North American level of per- missiveness in raising children has not been reached. Muddle and uncertainly seem at least as prevalent. Sex education, for example, Is a subject on which Euro- peans might be expected to ac- cept more maEter-of-factly than others.
