Landers- Your answer to the woman who hated going to couples parties because the men go off to one side of the room and the women huddle together on the other side, was lousy According to you, most women are dummies who can't talk about anything but recipes, laundry bleaches and their kids Such trivia bores the men (you so they drift away from the girls to discuss more substantive topics, such as world affairs, politics, and the economic state of the universe Last night my husband and l attended a party and the crowd was, as you described, divided according to sex The women were discussing national politics and the oil crisis It was a spirited exchange because there were several well-informed gals there who held opposite points of view I meandered to the other side of the room to listen to what the men were into There were three conversations going One guy was telling a dirty joke, another fellow was talking about guns The third bore was running down his boss. I stood it for about ten minutes, then went back to the women It was a welcome relief This letter will, of course, wind up in -the wastebasket because it upsets your oft repeated theory that men are smart and women are stupid Dora Dear D.D.: Please don't put words in my mouth. Stupidity knows no gender There are brilliant women and stupid men everywhere you look and I know plenty of both I happen to prefer co- educational conversational evenings, but eight times out of ten, if the group is divided according to sex, I'd rather be with the men Generally speaking, their topics are more substantive Dear Ann Landers: Am I addle brained, immature, or just normal' As a teenager I would fall madly in love and tell myself, "This is IT." Six- months later, I'd be sick of the sight of my Romeo and break it off At age 24 I married "the mart of my dreams Within a year, he irritated me beyond endurance What used to be out-of-this-world sex turned into an ordeal I tried my darnedest to make the marriage work for the sake of our two small children, but after six years I told him I couldn't stand the phonmess of our relationship and we were divorced Immediately I fell madly in love with an unstable but handsome charmer We were married the first legal moment Now, two years later, I see all his faults which should have been apparent before We are in the process of being divorced I need to know if this is the way most marriages are Do people get sick of each other and stay together for appearance's sake, or for jconvemence7 I have always held a full time job and the people I work with praise my patience and personality They think I'm great What do you think, Inward In The Bay Area Dear Looking: I think a woman who is a two time loser at the age of 32 had better do a lot more "looking inward" before she considers another marriage You need some self exploration with a professional to learn why you become bored with men after you capture them This pattern which has persisted since you were a teenager indicates that emotionally you are STILL back in high school Drugs?

This is the opinion of Mrs George Kandel, president of the Lethbridge Humane Society, who wants to see the city undertaking a spaying and neutering program to help cut down the cat and dog population She estimates one cat, with three or four Utters per year can give birth to more than a thousand offspring within a 10-year cycle Mrs Kandel recommends that cats be licensed, like dogs, with part of the fees collected, to be used by the city for a spaying program Licensed cats could be tattoed in the ear lobe, rather than forced to wear a collar, which presents a danger of choking "We've got to start Mrs Kandel said "There have been more stray, hungry cats this winter than ever before and the number will continue to increase unless something definite is done about it" Since the city pound doesn't WHEY PRODUCED Canada annually produces 2 6 billion pounds of whey, a byproduct of cheese manufac- turing pick up cats Mrs Kandel's telephone has been ringing all winter with requests for pick- up She says one brand of tinned cat food has jumped from two for 43 cents to two for 59 cents and a brand of dry food now sells at six little bags for 40 Her monthly food bill for her three cats and three dogs comes to without allowing for the price of milk. "If I couldn't afford to feed my cats and dogs I would put them to Mrs Kandel says flatly, "but there are many people who don't feel that strongly about caring for their pets. We find so many of them kick their cats out before their litters are born with the result we are left with strays plus baby litters She believes birth control pills for cats and dogs would be fine except the owner would have to buy them continually Paying the to have a cat spayed is a one- time expenditure Present vet costs are for neutering, for spaying a cat of six months of age and to spay a cat who has already had a litter Mrs Kandel believes the new animal shelter to be built in North Lethbridge is large enough to accommodate a visiting vet, perhaps on a weekly basis, who could neuter or spay cats and dogs on a regular basis She feels all cats picked up by the poundkeeper should be spayed Calendar Christian Science will hold a prayer and testimony meeting at 7.30 p m.
