Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa DEAR ABBY: My husband in sists that because boys will be boys, every boy should have his first sexual experience with a prostitute. He has several rea- sons: she can teach him about sex, there are no repercussions from the encounter and it's preferable to learning with some Mania's girl in the back seat of a car. I didn't know whether to laugh or hit him but on recovering, I informed him that the boy could windup with VD, and as for learning about sex in a house of prostitution, that was tantamount to learning about good food in the town sewer. I also asked him if he thought that when our daughters reach their late teens, they should go to a male prostitute, to learn all about sex, 'cause "girls will be just as boys will be boys. He didn't think that was funny, and said to ask Abby. So I'm asking you. M.C. DEAR M.C.: If prostitues offer educational courses for inexper- ienced boys, it's news to me. your husband knows some who do. (Is he a gradu- And what if a student de- velops such a ferocious loyalty to his "alma mater" that he keeps going back for graduate courses? DEAR ABBY: I 'am nearly 90 years old and have a question which I hope you can answer for me as it has troubled me for a long time. A relative of mine has the one and only picture of my dear departed mother and her first older sister, who is also now dead. I know that it is possible to have pictures copied. I imagine they simply take a picture of the original, which should do no damage to the original. My problem is that this relative refuses to let that origi- nal picture out of her sight. She is now convinced that it will do the original no harm to have a picture taken of it, but is there any place where this can be done while a person waits? She will not near of leaving it over- night anywhere. She lives in Chicago. Thank you. SIGN ME "OLD" DEAR OLD: There ought to be a photographic studio in Chicago that would produce a copy of the original while you and your relative wait. Ask around. DEAR ABBY: Here's how T have succeeded in getting my name off "junk" mailing lists: I simply cross off my name and address, and write, "REFUSED RETURN TO SENDER" on the envelope. Then I drop it in a mailbox. It costs the company money to receive this piece of mail back, so they seem eager to drop' my name from their list. Of course, you must refuse the mail without opening the enve- lope, but I've gotten off nu- merous lists this way. MRS. C.B.: LOMITA, CAL. DEAR MRS. B.: Thanks for the tip. Some of those folks who impose their junk mail on peo- ple are going to hate us. Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest.

The minister completed the marriage ceremony which made Miss Jeanette Cunning- ham-Brown, 20, the wife of Michael Murphy. The new Mrs. Murphy missed some of the wedding recep- tion, however. She stood well apart from others outside St. Alphege's church last month while guests shouted cham- pagne toasts. Controls Four days before her wed- ding on February 4 she and three men were served with five year banning orders un- der the Suppression of Com- munism act. Her order affected her wed- ding by limiting the number of people she could directly so- cialize with. It controls where she may work and where she may live. Immediately after the cere- mony the newlyweds launched a fight to live together. Part of the banning order stipulated that she had to reside at the home of her parents at Pieter- maritzburg. The Murphys wanted to setup housekeeping at Durban, 40 miles away, where her husband is a high school teacher. The justice ministry granted their appeal. Mrs. Murphy shares her ban with an estimated 200 other white, brown and black South Africans. There is seldom an official expiation for the crackdown, not even to those restricted. The only hint comes from their activities before the Sup- pression of Communism' act is invoked.

Critics Black and white clergymen who have condemned the of- ficial race policy of apartheid have been banned. Politically active mulatto journalists and Asian civil rights leaders have been banned. The common denominator seems to be that those most likely to he banned are out- spoken critics of government policy, particularly in the area of race relations. Justice minister Petrus C. Pelser told parliament recent- ly that 67 persons were banned last year. Unofficial statistics indicate that since the mid-1950s about South Africans of all rac- es have been banned, some under the Riotous Assemblies act, but most under the Sup- pression of Communism act. Banning orders can be lifted or extended, again with no official explanation. The most publicized banning was that of Mrs. Helen Joseph, a onetime vice-president of the now illegal Congress of Democrats. She was banned in October 1962 by then jus- tice minister and now prime minister, John Vorster. She was never brought to trial, but Vorster said he was satisfied that she had "en- gaged in activities which were furthering or were calculated to further the achievement o communism." Mrs. Joseph was confine; within the Johannesburg city limits, barred from receiving visitors except her doctor ant lawyer and had to report ti- the police each weekday. The original five year ban was ex tended before it expired in Oc tober 1967, but she was grant ed permission to attend church on Sundays. Mrs. Joseph, now 69, was finally released in June 197: after undergoing surgery for cancer. While no longer under the ban, she is still considered a "named" person under the Suppression of Communism act and cannot legally be quoted. Orders Vary Banning orders Vary from person to person, but general- ly restrict the movement of an individual to a particular com- munity, include some sort of curfew, limit the number of persons he or she may see and bar them from being quoted. Most banned' persons are prohibited from entering schools, universities, certain businesses or industries and many other institutions. Some are required to i-eport regular- ly to a specific police station and all are expected to moni- tor their own activities to com- ply with the restrictions.

Pennsylvania's commonwealth court has awarded 18 years' retroactive workman's compen- sation benefits to a Philadelphia j policewoman who was fired after she helped shatter a mammoth narcotics operation. But Miss Ruby L. Mapp, now 43, will receive only between to because she has worked for the past 11 years as a clerk in Philadelphia's main post office. She said she would use the money to support her elderly parents. Miss Mapp, the first woman ever used as an undercover agent by Philadelphia police, posed as a prostitute and drug addict in 1955 to shatter a nar- cotics ring involving 200 sus- pects. Ten days after the arrests, she collapsed during an awards ceremony in the mayor's office. In 1958, she was fired by the city for "emotional instability." -AP Wircoholo Jeanette Murphy stands with her husband, Michael, at their wedding in Durban, South Africa, in February.
