(CP Plioto) SopJiie rides snowmobile to check her trap lines CANDLE LAKE Sask. (CP> Each morning during the winter, Sophie Hayes takes off on her snowmobile for a trip over a 35-mile area to check her more than 150 traps. Mrs. Hayes, one of four women trappers in tills area 50 miles northeast of Prince Al- Ijert, has been working trap line's for more than 35 years, starting a regular routine on her honeymoon. Trapping lur-bearing animals was tough In those days, sho said in an interview. Traps had to be checked every two or 1 three days and ahe was on the trail Irom morning until night, carrying a packsack and mak- ing her way on snow-shoes. "That was something I learned on my lo walk (n snowshoes." She'd done a lillle trapping with her brothers "for fun." But when she married Wally Hay she joined the trapping life for good. They started (heir married life trapping in the Goldfields area in northwestern Saskatche- wan. She was (he first white woman in the area. Dog teams and walking were the only ways lo get around then.

MALL 2025 MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE 40 STORES TO SERVE YOU Ann Lande rs DEAR ANN LANDERS: Two monttis ego I borrowed my girlfriend's floor cleaner. While I was setting up the cleaner it caught on fire. I called her immediately and told her what had happened. I explained I had Dot done anything that there must have been a short someplace and I would take it lo the repair shop for her at once. Three weeks later the man from the shop called to soy the price for repairing Ihe cleaner would be SW. I telephoned my friend and told her about the repair charge and asked her how much she had paid for it new. She said, "Sixty dol- lars." I told her I'd lake the cleaner to another shop and get a second estimate. Her reply was, "I think you ought to buy me a new machine" I was shocked. Yesterday 1 bought a new floor cleaner for her and It cost Do I do the right thing or am I a Broke In Illinois DEAR FLAT: Was the giiTs friendship worth If you had not replaced the floor cleaner it would be curtains. The luirden is on the borrower, not Ihe lender. Granted, your nose is slightly out cl joint, but if I were in your place I'd rather it be my nose than hers. You did the right thing and I salute you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I earnestly believe lhat even' person has Ihe right lo be nutty on one subject. My subject is cigarette smoking. I've always hated it especially in women. After thai government report established an indispu- table link between cigarettes and lung cancer, I was sure millions of would quit smoking. But they didn't. Now, a doctor in California, has discovered something that will probably have a far grealer impact on women than tho fear of lung cancer. The doctor has proven that cigarette smoking can result in premature wrinkles. It has been known for years that nicotine causes the small blood vessels in Ihe skin to contract. Over a period of time this could produce wrinkling. So please print my letter, Ann, and let's hope that by appealing to the vanity of heavy smokers we can get them to put an end to the self-destruction. A Person Who Loves People DEAR PERSON: I love people, too, but I learned long ago lhat yon can't save people from themselves. Heavy smokers are physically addicted to tobacco as surely as the junkie who is hooked on smack, And, in addition to the physi- cal addiction there's a psychological problem. He must- like himself well enough lo go through the discomfort of kicking his habit. Unless the addict is willing to suffer the pangs of withdrawal, nothing can help him. Are drugs O.K. If you learn, how to control them? Can they lie of help? The answers are in Ann Landers' new book- let, ''Straight Dope On Drugs."
