The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 8,1986 Page 17 Consideration leads to good manners Dear Ann Landers: A 60-year-old woman wrote and asked why kids today never stand up and offer a seat to an older person on the bus. You said it was general insensitivity to the needs of others and unfortunately, "all-pervasive." I say it's two things. One: Most parents who own a car never ride the bus with their children and they don't know what goes on. Two: Kids learn manners after consistent repetition of instructions and observing good examples set by adults. Pop and I took the bus together often. One day he decided he had reminded me enough already and said, "Stand up for that lady now, or you won't be able to sit down when you get home." That was the last time I ever hesitated about giving up . my seat. How I wish today's parents would take the time to teach their children manners. Manners are nothing more 'than basic, ordinary consideration •;ifor others. The rewards are en- ••.ormous and they last a lifetime. — ; Also Tired Dear Also: You can say that again ;: All women imeed cakium : } and exercise I; ATLANTA (AP) — Osteoporosis, ! - one of the most common chronic ;> diseases in women over age 45, can "'.. be delayed and possibly prevented if' •; women take certain steps early, says ; .the Arthritis Foundation. ; • In osteoporosis, bones break more ;.i frequently in the wrist, spine and •' ;hips because there has been an age£; related loss in bone density. ;> Women lose bone mass more rap^•idly following menopause, which f. usually occurs after age 45.

Dear Ann Landers: Please keep telling your readers who choose to stay with an alcoholic to contact Al- Anon. Thirty-two years ago I married a man with a drinking problem. I thought he would quit for me (sound familiar?) but of course I was wrong. I raised four sons by myself. My husband was busy doing his own thing. I didn't leave him, though God knows I wanted to hundreds of times. I had no money, no place to go and I believed a drunken father was better than no father. (Wrong.) Alcohol is a liquid drug. I have spent many hours reading up on the subject. Almost every alcoholic compares his drinking to someone else's (always a heavier drinker) and .'W V: Personal Finance and Money Management (family economics) Broadcast Saturdays, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. denies he has a problem. I can tell them all, there are only three roads out: Alcoholics Anonymous, the psycho ward, or the morgue. Kids and teenagers are drinking at a younger age and more heavily than ever before, and it's getting worse. For every alcoholic there are at least five people who are affected by his drinking. In Al-Anon I found the peace of mind that saved my sanity. Please, Ann, send those nervous, confused and empty souls to us. There is a better way to live and Al- Anon will show it to them. — Reader in British Columbia Dear B.C.: Thanks for a chance-to say it again. Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship for both men and women. It has absolutely the best success rate for rehabilitating problem drinkers. A.A. has proven much more effective than psychiatry, counseling or religion. And it's free. A.A. welcomes anyone who shows up. No questions asked. Al-Anon is an organization for people who decide to stay with an alcoholic. It teaches them they need not and should not take responsibility for the alcoholic's drinking. If he vomits let him clean it up or sleep in it. Nor should they lie for him (or her) or try to cover his tracks. Both organizations are in the phone book. They perform a marvelous service and have changed (and saved) thousands of lives. Dear Readers: I am so pleased the author of that heart-warming poem, "A Birthday," has made herself known. She is Sue Westrum of Glenville, Minn. The poem first appeared in a book called "Perspectives on a Grafted Tree," in 1983. Baby named A son, Gary Lynn Jr., was born to Mr. and Mrs. Gary Kretz of Houston. The father is formerly of Salina. Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Earl Kretz of Salina and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Smith of Houston. A great- grandmother is Bessie Smith of Houston. Classified ads get results.
