Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I would like lo comment on "Pot Smoker's Masterpiece." I am 20 years old and also experi- enced with pot. I'd like to say that in addition to being an awful speller, she is also an awful fool. The person who gets stoned every day gels wrecked. The term "wrecked" means they are so freaked out they are unable to speflk colierenUy, loo zonked to walk or even stay awake. When the girl wrole to say pot has made her a brilliant con- versationalist, I lauphed. Here is a typical conversation be- tween two polhead.s: "God, am I ripped-----" "Yeah, me, too. I'm in a wild groove, man." "The record is finished but I don t think f can get up to change it." "Man, am I wrecked Tlie pclheads who road tliis will probably say I'm crazy, but f dare them to sit in on a po> party and stay straight and monitor the conversation. In (he two years that f blew grass 1 never met one person who didn't try something strong- er. I swore f never would, but I did. I tripped on blotter acid four or five times, hit a bummer and quit cold turkey, scared out of my skull. Now I'm engaged to a great girl and off of everything, f dread the day when I have to sweat out our first child to see if he has any deformities. We were told by a good doctor that the chances are lo one dial our kids will be O.K., but I still lie awake nights worrying. It wasn't worth Ex-Head DEAR CLE: Thanks for the testimony. Arc you listening, students? It's one of your own speaking. DEAR ANN LANDERS: After a quarter of a century of marriage 1 have finally learned the secret of a happy mar- riage. I have listed ten rules, which I guarantee will work for all couples. Of course Ihese rules are for WOMEN. In our society there arc no i-ules for men. 1. If he says, "1 won't be home for dinner tonight, don't wait up for don't ask ivhere he ii going. SucJ) a question gives the impression you do not trust him. 2. If he comes in very late, don't ask where he has been. Such a question gives the impression you are insecure. 3 Keep his clothes in perfect condition. 4. Keep his slomach full. 5. Keep lus car clean. 6 Keep the kids quiet and away from him when he comes home at night. Questions can drive a father if he doesn't loiow the answers. 7. Give him plenty of sex no matter how tired you are or what kind of a day you've had. II. Don't ask him for money. 9. Starve yourself if you must, but slay a size 10 forever. Never menlion the fact that he has gained 30 pounds and the seams in his pants are splitting 10. Don't lell him your troubles. A woman who slays tome all day shouldn't have any. Marriage Mavin In Philadelphia. DEAK MAVIN: Thanks for letting us know what il lakes to keep a marriage together in the City of Brotherly Love. Many a Iruth is spoken in jest. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read where a man in Illi- rote became (he falher of triplets at the age of 7-1. Is this possible? My husband insists that he must have had some a best friend or a roomer. What do you Flabbergassed. DEAR FLAB: A man 74 may well have fathered triplets. Fertility in males goes on and on. Along these lines I might add that multiple births have nothing to do with exceptional virility.
