Ann Landers August 1973 THt LETHMIDGE HMAID Zambia swingers rapped on knuckles By NICHOLAS MOORE Zambia Like their sisters elsewhere in black Africa. Zambia's house- wives are in trouble for spend- ing too much time and money on fashionable clothes and not enough on the family. Leaders in other parts of Af- rica have brought in legislation intended to uphold the dignity of African womanhood. Uganda's President Idi a staunch has banned miniskirts. Similar prohibitions are in force in Malaw and Zan- zibar. In some male mem- bers of Parliament recently called on President Jomo Ken- yatta's government to follow suit and were told by Attorney- General Charles Njonjo that if bared female ihighs offend them they need only look the other way. Here in perhaps black Africa's most fashion-con- scious capital the miniskirt is regarded as almost square. ID sartorial dispute on the women's pages centres upon such topics as whether or not pant suits and botpants ought to be worn to the office. girls are only a step behind swinging London in taking up says Clara a columnist in the Zambia Daily Mail. CONCERN GROWING There however signs that concern is now growing here at the craze for Western-inspired fashions and .the attitudes it both reflects and encourages. Zambia's fashion- able young women were rapped on the knuckles by no less a dignitary than Mrs. Chibpsa director of the wom- en's brigade of the governing United National Independence Party On an official tour of the cop- per Mrs. Kankasa ambitions have been mis- placed. We always want to look like white women. This is a It was Mrs. Kankasa for Zambian housewives to stop nagging their menfolk for more money to spend on new dresses and instead to pay more heed to the family. The women's leader Western type of clothing has taken so much of our time that we do not have a moment to prepare well-cooked meals for the family but depend on canned foodstuffs. society is sick with many cases of broken mar- runaway dagga smoking teen- agers and pregnancies among schoolgirls. Where are we going and as are we doing about those Mrs. Kankasa said most Zam- bian women had not failed in their loyalty to their nation. She could not understand why they had not been faithful their traditions and DEAR ANN Regarding that letter from the Yale man whose Vassar was cha- peroned by her mother for 47 It may have been a true story. In the town where I grew one couple deferred to Mama's wishes and remained engaged for 35 years. They married one month after his mother died. bride was the groom was In another Fate was not so kind. Mama was a widow and her son felt she should come first as long as she lived. She lived to be 98. The 50-year engagement end- when the man had a DEAR ANN Our 20-year-old son tore your column out of the paper today and pinned it to the family bulletin board. Across the top he I am You talked about the impor- tance of how it keeps people sane and would be unbearable without Our son. a college is a clean kid who works summers to pay his own tui- tion. His problem is his mouth.- He teases his 16-year-old bro- ther unmercifully. He also makes cutting remarks to eight-year-old brother who is overweight. The little guy is in tears most of the time. Your column made him DEAR ANN Today I'm letting the dishes and ironing go because this letter can wait no longer. When the first child is born the mother is The father's first question is If it's a boy accomplished. His male ego has been satisfied. Now he can hand out brag a little and carry pic- tures in his wallet. Mom is plenty but she notices Dad hasn't time for the boy so she tries to make it up to him. She takes him places his dad should be taking listens to his troubles and helps him with his even though she knows full well that too much Mom is not good. A boy should identify with his heart one week to the day after his mother died. He was buried beside her at the age of 75. I have always considered it a sin for a parent to hang on to a son a and prevent them from hav- ing a full life of their own. Thanks for letting me ex- press Hartford DEAR Don't fault the parents exclusively. Some children want to hang around for 50 years. And please re- member that marriage is not for everyone. Some couples have a better life just If they got married their friendship would end. very happy. Please put your remarks in the proper con- text. My husband and I are sure you didn't mean what this boy seems to think you meant. M And D M AND You don't say whether this boy needles his friends or if he re- serves his barbs for the fam- ily. I'm betting it's part of his total and that he doesn't have many friends. A 20-year-old knows the dif- ference between laughter and ridicule. Laughter gives peo- ple a lift. Ridicule puts people down. I hope you will look deeper into this situation and give the older boy the emo- tional support he needs. He's a very unhappy kid who could use some counselling. not his mother. Our son is 17. So far as I know he is normal. We are lucky. It could easily have gone the other way. Last night he told me something surpris- ing. He of my friends like their dads be- cause they don't know them very well. They are all too busy making I'm sure the boy was also speaking for himself.
