The object of the workshop, according to the program, is, "lo help us have a better un- derstanding of one another and recognize each other as more lhan just another woman, man, or neighbor."

DEAR ANN ANDERS: Whenever I hear about a teen-ager committing suicide or bloving his mind with drugs 1 say to myself, "This is nature's law and it's a good one. The survival of the fittest. This person has proved he was not fit to live." Whether the inability to survive is due to weakness o[ character or a physical deficiency docs not matter. The fact that a person is unable to make a place for himself in the world is born out by his desire to leave it. And so far as 1 am concerned, the world is betler off if he leaves. We do not need any more weaklings, misfits or mental and phy- sical defectives adding to the confusion and pollution of an already overcrowded world. One of the reasons the drag problem is so difficult to eradicate is that the screwballs who are hooked get other malcontents involved. If they all did away with themselves the world would be a healthier and happier place. Print this let- ler if you dare. I'm telling you won't. R DEAR M.R.: I'm sorry you didn't send your name and address. I'd like to nominate you for the Humanitarian Award of 1984. Your notion thai only the strong are fit to live is nauseating. If these weaklings whom you obviously despise don't kili themselves, how about herding them into gas ovens? History records another dingbat who had ideas similar to yours. His name was Adolf Hitler. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a member of Die most beleagured, batUe-wary, rag-tag army in North America the parent of a teen-ager. T need a simple answer to a sim- ple question. Here it is: What do you Ihink of smoking rooms in high schools for studenls? This siihjccl has caused several heated discussions among our friends and family. I would appreciate it if you would express your views. Please tell us if you are for or against them and why. Walking Wounded. DEAR WOUNDED: I am against them. Providing a place for smoking implies not only approval but encouragement. The nolon that the kids are going to smoke anyway, so we might as well let them smoke in school, is total capitulation. Carrying that kind of reasoning one step further, one might argue in favor of providing the students with sleeping rooms as well. High school administrators cannot force students to stop smoking bill in my opinion they should not encourage smoking by giving [he students a special room lo do it in.
