Sheltered Lives For Afghan Women By ARNOLD ZEITLIN KABUL, Afghanistan Long legs, thigh-high mini- skirts, an Alia Homeo sports car and a United States career as a Moosa has all these attributes, which almost anywhere else on earth would make her typically mod- ern. But in the heart of her home- land, Afghanistan, Mahboob Moosa, 29, is a spectacular ex- ample of the liberated Afghan woman. A dozen years ago, Mahboob and virtually all other women in Afghanistan wore the chaudhri, the tent-like garment veiling them from all eyes (Lnaaaemmk a Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Shardlow of Lethbridge are pleased to announce the forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Phyllis to Mr. Bryan Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Jones of Picture Butte.

COW BRAND BAKING sooA when they walked the streets. When Mahboob now proposes to swim in a revealing suit in the resort Lake Kargah, five miles from here, Kabul society buzzes with gossip. Few other women would join her in the swim. Despite the emancipation of Afghan wom- en in 1959, when King Moham- med Zahir Shah let it be known women no longer need wear the veil, most Afhan women continue to lead cloistered lives. Daring dress and the mixing of the sexes in public still is frowned upon. "We like to says Mahboob, "so we are called wife swappers." "We" is Mahboob and her husband, Dawood, 34, a hand- some, Afghan who belongs to the Kabul Ro- taiy Club and runs a thriving automobile agency. LOVE GHEVV In the traditional way of Af- ghan-arranged marriages, they had not met before they were engaged. They had seen one another, however, and Mah- boob said she had turned down several other men proposed by her parents before agreeing to marry Dawood, almost 10 years ago. "In the beginning there was no she says. "It has grown." A week after their wedding, Dawood took Mahboob to Los Angeles where he was study- ing. "I used to think what a lucky girl I she says. "He could have been a man .who ate like an animal or a man who beat me." Mahboob, who lived for sev era! years in Munich where her father was in business, re- turned to Afghanistan as teen-ager in 1955. Her mother bought her a chaudhri and she wore it obe- diently until rumors in 1959 suggested the king was lifting the veil. Mahboob said she wanted to accompany her brother to the movies, without wearing the veil. When she and her brother left the movie house, a huge crowd of men awaited her reappearance. The police sent an officer to escort Mahboob through the silent, staring crowd. In Los Angeles, Mahboob learned English and went to work as a model. She and Da- wood returned to Afghanistan in 1964, and Mahboob settled Ann Lande Red or Blue Brand cut and wrapped..................Ib. re I 0 down to a domestic life among a society suspicious of her modern ways.

Vic- tor Kellor, a 15-year-old wire- winder with the electronics firm, said afterwards: "When I won the girls weren't too pleased. Someone pulled my wig off and the game was up." DEAR ANN LANDERS: A while ago you printed a letter saying a girl could get pregnant with her clothes on bat only if she unzipped, unbuttoned, etc. You also made the point clear when you added, "That same girl could get pregnant in a coat of armor provided the guy has a can opener." We were having a discussion about this very subject the other evening and I quoted you. A well-educated person made the following statement which sounded pretty far-out, but she spoke most convincingly. She said a doctor told her a girl can get pregnant with her clothes on if she indulges in heavy petting but no sexual intercourse. If the petting is so heated that sperm is produced from the male, a child could result. She said this is unusual but there is reliable medical documentation of such cases. The explanation was as follows: the sperm .of a healthy male can live for 48 hours and can travel about three inches every 24 hours. This means the sperm can stay alive long enough to travel six inches and1 unite with the ovum. Her statement has some of us worried sick. Please com- ment. at 15 DEAR VULNERABLE: When I get letters such as yours from 15-year-olds, it reinforces my conviction that sex educa- tion in public schools should be mandatory. Your "informed source" has wrong information. The sperm cannot live for 48 hours unless it is in a warm, moist, place, designed by nature for the purpose such as the mucous membrane. Moreover the sperm cannot travel on the skin. And now a word for you girls who are "worried sic'-." If you'd behave a little better you wouldn't worry so much. V DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell the parents who read your column to warn their children against cutting open golf balls to see what's inside. A child in our neighborhood did a little "investigating" yesterday and he was horribly injured. I don't want to go into detail but the boy will never look the same. Kids don't realize 'that the centre of the ball sometimes contains sulfuric acid as well as zinc sulfide and other ma- terials which can be harmful. You do a lot of good, Ann. Here's a chance to do a little more. Pass this along. Lafayette, Indiana DEAR LAF: I'm passing it. And now I hope millions of parents1 will mention this to their small the bright ones with inquisitive minds. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 14 years old and started to read your column a few months ago. Am I ever glad I found you! You have already solved many problems for me some even before they happened! I have seen myself in your column dozens of times already. I have also seen my friends. Now here's the question I want to ask. Would it be O.K. if I cut out the columns that would help my friends and pass them out? I.D. DEAR NO: I hate to discourage such great public rela- tions but I'd hate you to jeopardize your friendships on my account. A person who hands out unsolicited advice soon be- comes as popular as a skunk at a lawn party. Don't do it, honey. When romantic glances turn to warm embraces is it love or chemistry? Send for the booklet "Love Or Sex and How To Tell The Difference." Send 35 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope with your request.
