Ann Landers DEAR ANN LAND1C11S: I hope you won't think this Icllcr Ls n phony just it comes from New llavciv I'm hi high school, not so plcn.sc ]ielp me. My problem lins lo do with my best friends. When it's time (or lunch we Ro somewhere Lo cnL. I'm the only one who brings a lunch. My two friends never bring anything. They say they meti'L very luiuiir.v al noon. When I start to unwrap my lunch, they say. "Gee that smells or, "Boy that looks yummy." ami I end up oplitting my lunch three ways. 1 got pretty corked oft a few weeks ago and loid them 1 wasn't going to my lunch with them any more. They said, "O.K. you don't have to share if you don't want In. We just like your company." So lor two days I didn't them oiiylliins and they jusl sal and looked starved I felt like a heel The third day I divided my lunch three ways and I've been doing il ever since. These are good kids and I have no one else lo eat with. I'd hale lo eal alone. Wlint should I do? Trapped In A Triangle, DEAR TRAPPED: Are you game lo cxpcrimcnl? For one solid week, cal a big breakfast and don't bring a lunch. Meet your friends as usual and tell them you've decided lo cut down on your food intake. Since they claim lliey enjoy your company, Ihis will ho a good lest of Iheir sincerity. If after a v.eek they do not bring their own lunches or seek anolher companion, it's safe to assume that they are not lolal freeloaders only partial. You should then accept the fact thai nobody's perfect and go back lo the three-way split. DEAH ANN LANDKflS; A few days ago my best friend died. He was my teacher, my idol, my symbol of strength and protection. He was also my father. Last year on my sev- enteenth birthday I obtained my driver's license. Three weeks later I had a minor accident. I was scared lo death of what my father would say when the police called him. I wasn't, hurt but I had a few scratches and was dazed by the impact, The moment he saw me he hugged me and tried lo calm my ragged nerves. I kept repeating, "I'll never drive again." He said, "Oh yes you will. In fact you are going to drive me home." Then he I old me about Thomas Alva PMison how he made the first electric light bulb after seven years of hard work and experimentation. Edison handed the precious hull) to his laboratory assistant (o put away. The nssislant acci- dentally dropped il, Of course the luilh broke into R thousand pieces. Edison went, to work on a second bulb. After he had completed it be handed it lo his assistant again to prove thai he bad confidence in him. I knew how Ihc assistant must have felt when I was behind Ihe wheel of that car, driving my dad home. This as only one of the lessons I learned from Ihis remarkable man. I am thankful for having had him for eighteen years. I hope you will find room in your column for my letter. Perhaps it will help the lucky ones who sLill have a dad to appreciate him a little more. A Ixiving Daughter DEAR DAUGHTER: What R beauliM tribute. When I read your letter I thought about my own father. He, too, was a remarkable man anrt T miss him every day of my life, Thimrfny, Apill 77, 177?

Mr.s. Mansfield said there never was any discussion during Mrs. LenLin's interview of ma- tcrnily leave because of provin- cial legislation covering that area. Mrs. Mansfield said trustees had indicated they wanled conti- nuity in tbe position ami did not want lo hire someone who was likely to leave after six or 12 months.

KDMONTON (CP) Women studenls in the science fields at universities need women in the professions to model themselves after, soys Dr. Jean Lauher, as- sociate professor of zoology al the University of Alberto.
