Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "You and my boss are poles opart He frowns when he gives me my paycheck, and you smile when you take it." Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: The attached clipping tells about a Charlotte youth who was killed on his motorcycle when a 16-year-old driver made an turn The youth was our son. I am writing to beg you to keep vep your crusade against mo- torcycles. I raised holy hell with my bull-headed husband when he bought our boy a cycle. He called me a ner- vous nut and I didn't have a chance. Now our precious son is dead and I am living on tranquilizers and my husband is drinking himself to death. I believe be is just as much to blame as the kid who was DEAR ANN LANDERS: My father died two years ago. He was a dear man and Mom depended on him for everything. Ever since Mom has been alone, she feels that whenever Lawrence and I en- tertain we should include her. I have a younger sister and Mom tried to become a part of her social life, also. Sis's husband wouldn't stand for it and now they have a strain- ed relationship. We realize Mom is lonely but she never cultivated any friends or had any interests of her own. She was always Dad's shadow. When Mom is at our home and other guests are present she takes over the conversation and remin- isces about people and events DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was amused by the letter from the kooks who were so happy with their sexless mar- riage. They remind me of the bachelors who think the only good marriage is the one that produced them. I have read about almost everything under the sun ex- cept the story I am about to tell. I know it is true because it happned to me. Twenty years ago I was not only jilted, but the guy borrowed from me so he could run off and marry someone else. I was heartsick, asham- ed and I felt disgraced. It nearly drove me crazy, but it was actually a blessing. Five years later a real man came along and we have had fifteen great years together. I don't know what happened to DEAR ANN LANDERS: I a 16-year-old girl who needs an answer from you in the paper. It seems that every time I bring a fellow home my folks find some- thing wrong with him. For example. Jim's eyes are too close together which means be is sneaky. Harold has a low forehead which is a sign Utet he is no? very intelligent. Bill's pointed ears make him look like a fox which means he is sly. Bemie looks like a baboon because his arms are long and he has long hair and sideburns. Ed- die has Ihin lips, which behind that wheel Our lives are ruined. And for what? Names Please Dear N.N.P.: You must find the strength to go on as others who have lost children have done. Of course you are bitter and heartsick, but blaming your husband only makes guilt harder to bear. Some people find strength in religion. If this is possible for you, see a clergyman. If it isn't, get some counselling. Charlotte has excellent grief therapists. I urge you to choose one. Booze and pills will eventually do you both in. Get off the stuff and learn how to face life realistically. that mean nothing to them. Last night was a disaster. Mom talked incessantly dur- ing the dinner and two coup- les left immediately after the dessert. Lawrence put Ms foot down this morning and said my sister's husband was a lot smarter tfaan he was 'and in the future we will not invite my mother when we en- tertain. I hate to hurt her feelings but I have never seen Lawrence so angy. This could mean serious trouble between us. Can you guide me? More Daughtr Or More Wife? DEAR M.D.: Your first ob- ligation is to your husband. Take your mother to mov- ies, art shows, and concerts whenever possible, but don't let her ruin your marriage. the jerk who scrammed with my money and I couldn't care less. There must be some old adage to cover such dilemmas but I can't think of it right now. Can you? A Devoted Pan In D.C. DEAR DEVOTED: 'It's an ill wind that blows no good." Thanks for sharing. Do you feel awkward, self- conscious lonely? Welcome to the club. There's help for you in Ann Landers' book- let, "The Key To Popularity."

Now, Ann Landers, will you please tell me if there is any relation between physical characteristics and a per- son's character? I'm begin- ning to believe my folks want me to be an old maid. And tlie way they tear up every guy I bring home. Fm sure I will be. In Fort Lauderdale DEAR DIS: The answer to your question is a big. fat round NO.
