Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, April 7, 1973 Wendy takes singing seriously By MAUREEN JAM1ESON Family Editor Short and sassy, with an en- gaging, freckled grin and un- ruly long dark hair primly drawn back to the nape of her neck, Wendy Burrows has voice that attracts attention. The young soprano undoubted- ly is holding her own at the Ki- wanis music festival. "So far I've been in five competitions and I've got three she said yesterday, looking perhaps 16 of her 20 years. Wendy's score stands at four first and one second place, with her highest mark 89. A touch of nostalgia crept into her voice as Wendy re- marked that Beth Douglas was her adjudicator this year.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our darling daughter married at 18 right after high school graduation. We tried our best to get her to go to college or work for one year, but her mind was made up. The boy she married was 19. My husband and I dis- liked him from the start. He was sloppy, ill-mannered and lazy. Our daughter saw none of these qualities and would not listen to a word of criti- cism. Now, after a year (and a he has no job and the three of them are living with us. Both my husband and I work and our son-in-law stays home, collects unemployment compensation and watches TV. My husband's patience is DEAR- ANN LANDERS: I am a 16-year-old girl who is very upset and I have no one I can talk to. Please give me some mature ad- vice. I was going through my father's desk to find my birth certificate which I needed to get a passport. I ran across a document that turned out to be some divorce papers. I learned for the first time that wearing thin and so is mine. Whenever I start to say some- thing my daughter cries and begs me to leave him alone and give him a chance. We can't throw them out in the street, Ann. What can we do? Trapped DEAR T.: So long as you provide bed and board (and a TV) you are going to have these "house guests" with you. And why not? It's easier to sponge than go to work. Tell your daughter and son- in-law that they have 30 days to find a place of their which means he'll have to go to work. You are doing them no favor by allowing them to continue this parasitic exist- ence. In fact, your hospitality is crippling the boy emotion- ally. my father was married be- fore. I never heard of the woman. I am shocked and hurt that I was not told. Should I speak to my father about it? Shaking DEAR S.S.: Yes. Children have a right to know about the previous marriages of their parents. Tell your father how you feel and get it talked out. PARENTS MAY HELP VANCOUVER (CP) The Greater Vancouver Regional District has awarded a contract to a construction firm to build a care-by-parent unit at the Chil- dren's Hospital. The unit, cost- ing will provide an op- portunity for parents to become actively engaged in the care of their children after surgery, a report said. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've written dozens of times but have always torn up the letters because I decided you couldn't help me. But this letter is going in the mail no matter what. My story will sound like a hokey soap opera but I swear by the Almighty that every word is true. My husband and my daugh- ter (stepdaughter to him) had an affair. I am so upset about it I can't see straight. There are times when I would like to kill them both although I know it was all her fault. The girl tempted him in ways he couldn't resist. I .don't ever want to see my daughter again, but I know when she comes to visit (she lives 300 miles from here) I must act like everything is lovely. She has a nice hus- band and three children. No one would guess in a million years what went on with those two. Please tell me how a per- son can recover from such treachery. How could the two people closest to me have done such a thing? I need your help. Broken Spirit DEAR SPIRIT: I can't straighten out hi a few para- graphs a problem that needs hours of ventilating. Don't try to bury it or it will explode later like a time bomb. The thought to keep upper- most in your mind is that what happened between them was an impetuous, unplanned, moment of weakness. The af- fair probably had no mean- ing to either of them. They are no doubt both ashamed and trying to forget it. Avail yourself of some short-term therapy and get this talked out of your system. V Is pot a drug? Can L.S.D. and pills open new worlds for you? Stop guessing. Get the facts in Ann Landers' new booklet, "Straight Dope OB Drugs."
