Africa DEAR ABBY: My husband insists that because boys will be boys, every boy should have his first sexual experience with a prostitute. He has several reasons: she can teach him about sex, there are no repercussions from the encounter and it’s preferable to learning with some Mamas 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 I that when our daughters reach their late teens, they should go, to a male prostitute, to learn all about sex, ‘cause “girls will be girls,” just as boys will be boys,. He didn’t think that was funny, and said to ask Abby. So I’m asking you.    .    j M.C. DEAR M.C.: lf prostitues offer educational courses for inexperienced boys, it’s news to me. Perhaps your husband knows some who do. (Is he a graduate?) And what if a student de-j velops such a ferocious loyalty to his “alma mater” that he keeps going back for graduate courses? ♦ * * DEAR ABBY: I am nearly DO 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 child—my older sister, who is also now dead. I know that it is passible 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 original 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 waits0 She will not hear of leaving it overnight anywhere. She lives in Chicago. Thank you. SIGN ME “OLD” DEAR OLD: There ought to he a photographic studio in Chicago | that would produce a copy of the original while you and your relative wait. Ask around. et *    * DEAR ABBY: Here's how I 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 af mail back. so they seem eager to drop my name from their list. Of course, you must refuse the mail without opening the envelope. but I’ve gotten off numerous lists; this way. MRS. CB,: I AM ITA, CAL. DEAR MRS. B.: Thanks for the tip. Some of those folks who impose their junk mail on people are going to hate us. * * * Problems? You’ll feel better if you get it off your chest.

Whiting Associated Press Writer DURBAN, South Africa (AP) —“Those that God has joined, let no man put asunder.” The minister completed the marriage ceremony which made Miss Jeanette Cunningham-Brown, 20, the wife of Michael Murphy. The new Mrs. Murphy missed some of the wedding reception, however. She stood well apart from others outside St. Alphege’s church last month while guests shouted champagne toasts. Controls Four days before her wedding on February 4 she and three mon were served with five year banning orders under the Suppression of Communism act. Her order affected her wedding by limiting the number of people she could directly so- Service! cialize with. It controls where she may work and where she may live. Immediately after the ceremony 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 Pietermaritzburg. The Murphys wanted to set up 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 Suppression of Communism act is invoked.

CX-9. married, Mrs. Murphy and the three men banned with her were active as white trade unionists in helping black laborers organize and strike for better wages in the Durban area. Critics Black and white clergymen who have condemned the official 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 be banned are outspoken critics of government policy, particularly in the area of race relations. Justice minister Petrus C. Pelser told parliament recently that 67 persons wore banned last year. Unofficial statistics indicate that since the mid-1950s about 2,000 South Africans of all races have been banned, some under the Riotous Assemblies act, but most under the Suppression 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 bv then justice minister and now prime minister, John Vorster. She was never brought to trial, but Vorster said he was satisfied that she had “engaged in activities which were furthering or were calculated to further the achievement of communism ” Mrs. Joseph was confined within the Johannesburg city limits, barred from receiving visitors except her doctor and lawyer and had to report to the police each weekday. The original five year ban was extended before it expired in October 1967, but she was granted permission to attend church on Sundays. Mrs. Joseph, now 69, was finally released in June 1971 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 generally restrict the movement of an individual to a particular community, 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 report regularly to a sped! ic police station and all are expected to monitor their own activities to comply with the restrictions.

(UPI!-Pennsylvania's commonwealth I court has awarded 18 years’ retroactive workman's compensation benefits to a Philadelphia policewoman who was fired after she helped shatter a mammoth narcotics operation. But Miss Ruby L. Mapp, now 43, will receive only between $7,000 to $10,000 because she has worked for the past ll 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 narcotics 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 instabilitv.” AP Wirephoto Jeanette Murphy stands with her husband, Michael, at their wedding in Durban, South Africa, in February. Four days before the wedding, she was banned under the Suppression of Communism act. The act meant that she had to stand apart from guests at her wedding and had lo have special permission to move ta Durban to live with her husband. general and of banning orders in particular contend that the array of ordinary legislation on the statute books should be sufficient to deal with lawbreakers or subversives. These critics urge the government to put those they ban on trial so the facts can be aired in court. Justice Minister Pelser dismissed this reasoning a year ago when asked in parliament about the banning of eight black student leaders. “Court proceedings would give them a platform” for their ideas, he said. Dental Neglect Dental researchers do not believe that an unborn child absorbs calcium from the mother's teeth. According to a guide to oral health, they attribute most of the increase in tooth decay during pregnancy to dental neglect. COUNCIL > < rn AMES j STOCK-UP & SAVE ON QUALITY MORRIS PAINT . .
