Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 36-THE LETHBRIOGE HEflALD-Wednesday, April Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: The letter you printed from the woman whose husband blamed his epilepsy medication for his lack of sexual interest cracked me up. My husband takes the same medication and he is "ready to go." morning or night, seven days a week. In fact, shortly after we married, eight years ago. I went to see a counsellor because he was wearing me out. Your reply was perfect. People frequently place the blame for their problems on something completely unrelated in order to vindicate themselves. Before we were married, my husband blamed this same medication for his inability to wake up for his a.m. classes in graduate school. When he complained to his doctor, the reply was. After a few weeks of drowsiness his body became regulated to the medication and had no effect on him whatever. So, he bought two more alarm clocks and went on to get his Ph.D. If you print my letter it might help certain people shape up. Thanks. Ann. A Witness Dear Wit: Dosages of any medication often need to be regulated. Drowsiness is frequently experienced by- patients when they first go on drugs to control seizures. Usually after a few weeks the body becomes adjusted and the drowsiness disappears. If it persists, however, the doctor often reduces the dosage. Sometimes a slight reduction spells the difference between a patient who functions well and one who is just shlepping around. Dear Ann Landers: I am a competent secretary who moved to Cincinnati from the Midwest. The first thing I was told when I took this job as private secretary to the senior vice president was. "Watch out for his wife." She is a very suspicious, neurotic person who used to work for him before they were married. She can't seem to get over the habit of coming to the office two or three times a week and looking over his correspondence. She even opens letters before he has seen them. When Mr. V. P. interviewed and hired me he made it clear that NO ONE should be allowed to see his correspondence. Yesterday when I heard Mrs. Needlenose's voice in the outer office I quickly gathered all the boss's correspondence, tossed it in the centre desk drawer, locked it up and was busy filing when she came waltzing into the office to "look around." I felt like a sneak and I'm not even sure I got away with it. Any advice for future emergencies? Like My Job Dear Like: Anybody who is capable of such fancy mental footwork doesn't need advice from Ann Landers. Should she come busting in before you get everything gathered up. ignore her until the mail is safely locked in the drawer. If she says anything, tell her. "That's where Mr. V. P. wants it until he returns." Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I are "straight" people. We don't smoke dope or hang around with weirdos. We get along fine until the subject of his sisters comes up. One lives in a hippie commune and the other deals in grass. They both smoke and take pills. My husband thinks they should be welcome in our home because he is their brother. I'm afraid if they get busted here we'll be involved. They drop in whenever they feel like it and spend the night. Could we be in trouble? Marie Dear M.: Probably not, but your husband owes it to you to insist that they NOT drop in uninvited and when they are guests, they must leave the pot and pills elsewhere. Don't flunk your chemistry test. Love is more than one set of glands calling to another. If you have trouble making a distinction you need Ann's booklet, "Love or Sex and How To Tell the Difference." Send a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope with your request and 35c in coin to Ann Landers, P.O. Box 3346, Chicago, Illinois 60654.

Sf PHONE 328-3631 Banner raised for liberation by Thai women By TREVOR GOODCHILD' BANGKOK banner of women's liberation has been'raised for the first time in Thailand, where male privilege is regarded-almost as a natural law. A group of single girls in February formed themselves into the Women's Liberation Front, determined to gain equal social and legal rights with men. Although the group so far has only 20 members, it is unique in Thailand's male-dominated society where by law wives must get their husband's permission if they want to change jobs. The group, mainly made up of students, emerged at a time when the national assembly is debating a draft constitution designed to return the country to democratic rule. The draft makes several radical changes in the way the country should be governed but upholds the greater rights of men contained in the Civil Code. These include laws that a man can divorce his wife for adultery but the wife cannot and that a wife'cannot enter into a contract involving the common property of a marriage without her husband's consent, even though she may own the property. LAWYERS CRITICAL The divorce law in particular has drawn bitter criticism over the years from the Women Lawyer's Association oi Thailand. "While Thai husbands keep mistresses, their wives must sit at home and are not in a position to take legal action against their husbands' behavior even though they may be openly keeping several said Khunying Supatra Singholaka. the association's president. In an effort to influence the constitutional debate, the new women's liberation group chose the national assembly as the target for its first public protest demonstration. The 20 girls, all under 25. waved placards outside the assembly building and distributed leaflets declaring that Thai women had for years been treated as disabled people. has proved that women have the same abilities as men and they no longer want to be only the hind legs of the elephant." their leader. 23-year-old Veena Simtrakrew. told reporters covering the demonstration. A week later, the group's cause was raised in the assembly by some of the 16 women members of the 299-member body. OPPOSED BY MINISTER Discussing a constitutional clause on family rights. Deputy Justice Minister Sompob Hotrakit defended husbands" rights to determine the jobs their wives did. "For example." Sompob said, "if a wife wants to become a massage girl or prostitute, the husband may feel it degrading and family life could be affected." A woman member quickly retorted that the issue was the other way around: "If husbands become pimps, how would wives feel about it? Legally, they can't stop their husbands from that occupation either." The assembly is to consider the issue again in a later debate but the liberationists apparently have already lost the battle. Cancer studies show hereditary influence NEW YORK (CP) Women under age 40 run a far higher than average risk of developing breast cancer if their mothers sisters had the disease, a new United States study reports. It says the risk is 47 times higher for women who had both a sister and mother with breast cancer, than for women with no family history of the disease. And risk for women under 40 whose sisters had the cancer, but whose mothers did not, is nine times higher than the risk for women who had neither sisters nor mothers affected, it adds. The study looking into family or hereditary influence in cancer, and involving less 500 women with various cancers, is reported by Dr. David Anderson, professor of biology at the M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute in Houston, Tex., a major cancer research and treatment centre. His findings put the hereditary risk far higher than do statistics for the U.S. from the American Cancer Society. The society says women under 40 whose mother or sister had breast cancer run about twice the risk of developing breast cancer than women with no such family history. Anderson, in a report in Medical Tribune, a newspaper for physicians, said: "The early age of occurrence of the disease indicates that examinations for breast cancer by physical examination or x-ray methods or other should not be postponed under age 35 or 40 years, as is now sometimes recommended."
