Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Auguit JJ, 1770 THE ICTHBRIDGE HCRAlt) Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I hope you won't think this is dumb, but I need an answer and I don't know who else to ask. Is there anything in the rules of etiquette regarding "Love" signed to a letter or card? Sometimes I receive notes in the mail from casual friends who sign "Love" and it always makes me uncomfortable. As a high school student I recall receiving a birthday card from a fellow I though a great deal of. We were both 16. He signed "Love" at the bottom of the card and I walked around bumping into tilings for three days. I am not a demonstrative person, and it would be difficult for me to sign "Love" to anything unless I felt very close to that person. Please comment on this. Q DEAR Q: A letter or card signed "Love" does not mean "I am in love with you" any more than the words "Yours truly" mean "I truly belong to you." When the word "Love" appears at the foot of a note or letter, it means the writer wanted to convey a feeling of affection something more than the trite "As ever" or "Sincerely." DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wsnt your advice on a matter that deals with young married women this includes anyone from the bride category through the first ten years of mar- riage. How many of you go to your mother's home for dinner (with or without a standing invitation) every Friday, or Sun- day, or whenever you feel like calling up to say, "What are you having to eat? I've got a busy day and can't-cook." Or "We'll be over for dinner tonight, Mom." This is the standard routine in millions of homes, and I'm sure most moms don't mind, even though it means a bigger grocery bill for dad and extra work for her. But how many of you gals ever think to invite Mom and Dad to your house for a meal? Do you excuse yourself by thinking, ''Mom's a better cook I couldn't fix a meal to suit her." Let me tell you how it looks from here. I have a married daughter and a married son. They eat over here regularly, with their husbands and children, of course. They have yet to invite me to dinner as a guest. Dad and I always have Thanksgiving with our daughter, but I bring the turkey and dressing, the salad and dessert. (She makes the sweet potato casserole and my daughter-in-law plugs in a pot of coffee.) I hope I live long enough to get asked to their homes for meal. I wouldn't care if they opened a can of beans. Please print this letter, Ann. I'll bet a few million girls will wonder where it came from. Let 'em guess. Hands and Swollen Feet DEAR HANDS AND FEET: Here's your letter, and now may I add a word: If the shoes fit, girls, put 'em on walk over to the phone and call your mom or mother- in-law and invite her and dad to dinner. If she asks, "What's the Tell her I suggested it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The other day I was baring hmch with a friend. After lunch she said, "Let's find a m-ail- DOJE. I have to drop these letters." She took six envelopes out of her bag and just as she was about to drop them in a mailbox I stopped her. Each letter had a one-cent stamp. When I called it to her attention she said, "Oh the party on the other end gets nicked for the insufficient postage. I never put a return address on my envelopes. You'd be sur- prised how much money I save (Ms way." Is this true? I have never heard of such a thing. Have you? Oregon DEAR BEND: A person who would pull such a stapld stunt doesn't place much value on the letters she writes. Sometimes letter with insufficient postage is refused On the other end and goes to the dead letter office. Confidential to My D Cup Runneth Over: Plastic surgery could solve your problem.

Woman Karate Champion Doesn't Fear Male Attack MONTREAL (CP) Fran- cine Duguirc, a perky 24- year-old from Trois-Rlvieres, Quo., need never worry about being molested. With one swift chop or a weltplaced kick, she could maim an attacker for life. The reigning Quebec open karate champion, she holds a brown belt and is only one contest away from gaining her black highest standard in karate. Karate is the use of one's body in a perfectly controlled and precise manner in def- ence from an attack by one or more persons. The beginner wears a blue belt, progressing through yel- low, orange, green and brown before attaining the black belt. There are also degrees of black, the seventh degree being the highest. Francine has worked out with Montreal's YMCA karate instructor, Jim Cassidy, who holds a first-degree black belt. One such encounter was fierce, with little harm in- flicted as each parried the other's blows skilfully. "God, she's Jim gasped, ending the encounter. "There are not too many in Canada that can beat her." Only three women in Can- ada hold black belts in karate, he said. "Since you have to beat somebody who's in the degree you want to get to, it's not too easy to get up to black belt standard, because there are just not that many." Francine recalled her last encounter, in the American Tri-State open karate champi- onship held recently in White Plains, N.Y. In that competi- tion she was matched against the holder of black belts in both karate and judo. "Geez, she was the petite blonde said. "For a man, 5-10 and 170 pounds isn't that much. But a woman, wow! She was tough." The 115-pound Francine was tougher, though, and beat the black belt hands down, plac- ing second in the champion- ship. Competition is never re- stricted to fighting women, since it is unlikely that a woman might have to defend From Suffrage To Status Part Four The Weaker Sex Is Really Stronger By ALISON GODDAHD If two children, a boy and a girl, taunted each other with the challenge: "I'm better than you the girl would be right.

The 'anthropologist, Ashley Montagu, struck a blow to the masculine ego in his book, "The Natural Superiority of he concluded: "The evi- dence indicates that woman is, on the whole, biologically su- perior to men." He offers scien- tific studies to disprove the common theory that physical labor accounts for mortal ity. The female, for example, tougher even before birth. In Hie United States, more males than female children are con ceived, but from fertilization on mortality rates are higher for the male fetus.

SOME STYLES EXCITING The clothes were both exciting and disappointing, but depar hire from the symbol of the lib- erated woman, the mini dress. Midi-length coats, trimmed a cuff, collar and hem wtth genu ine and imitation fur, were well-received. Whites antl rich darker colors wwe predomi nant. Tight 'head the tougues aspiring six-year- old hocksj' players many coats, as die floppy suede hats. Featured pants styles were knee-length gauchos, widely flared, and below-the-knee knickers. Both styles were matched with vests, which themselves came into more prominence. But midi suits, that war-years look found mainly in family photo albums, generally re- ceived the brunt of comments. On one hand they're. putting men on the moon, and on the other hand they're hobbling women in long said Diana Ricardo, fashion writer of the Vancouver MODELS COMFORTABLE The models who wore the midis insisted they are comfort- able, and said they would wear them themselves, throwing on the occasional mini for varia- tion. Accessories played an impor- tant part in the total look. Wide and big buckets with midi skirts, choker necklaces, leather Miches and headbands, plus scarves loosely and tightly worn were used throughout. Knits were popular in all fash- ons with tweeds, velvets and suedes in mostly darker tones widely used. Fancy dresses fea- ured satin and maribou. The show was dominated by Montreal designers, whose clothes consistently drew ap- ilausa over the world. Thanks to ad- vances in medicine and bio- chemistry, improved nutrition, sanitation and public health, the average woman's life no longer draws to a close, like the woman of her grand- mother's generation, with the end of her reproductive capa- city. In 1900, the average fe- male life span was a little more than 47 years. Now it is over 74. Before this century ends, experts predict, it will be even higher. But not for men. Their life expectancy is expect- ed to remain the same. Women now represent 51 per group them under convenient labels: the "empty nest" and the "stormy a period marked by marital discord and rising divorce rates. There are other problems, too: widow- hood; the menopause with its symptoms and implications; and lastly, in a society where youth is glorified, the miscon- ception that sexual appeal ends with the ability to bear chil- dren. The scope of some problems can be summed up in vital statistics: 41 per cent of all American marriages end in divorce. cent of the population in the More than 14 per cent of United States. This difference will increase steadily into Uie foreseeable future, according to Dr. George G. Reader, presi- dent of the American Geriatrics Society and professor of medi- cine at Cornell University Med- ical College in New York. Be- cause women live longer than men, the difference becomes much greater by middle-age and after and, according to Dr. Reader, is bound in the future to create unforeseeable prob- lems. The longer life span has al- ready created problems for the mature woman. Many are so commonplace that experts women 45 to 64 years of age are widowed. Among women of 65 or older, 55 per cent are widowed. THE SOLUTIONS The fallacy about the loss ol sexuality in later years is being dispelled by the research o) both the Kinsey Investigators and Er. Williain H. Masters and Mrs. Virginia E. Johnson. They have shown that awual life does not end with the close of the childbearing years. Nor does productivity. Many mature women have entered the labor market: 15-milh'ori aged 45 or older are employed full-time.

For about 30 years now, it has been possible to correct the hormonal imbalance that sets in at menopause and can ad- versely affect a vwman's well- being, her sex life and her ap- pearance. This unbalance may be reversed and symptoms re- lieved with estrogen replace- ment therapy, according to Dr. Sherwin A. Kaufman, a leading gynecologist. Otter problems remain to be solved.

Although the force behind karate blow could kill il di- rected at the right spot on ths body, students of the art are taught to resort to using it only when there is no alterna- tive. Francine's venture into kar- ate began in 1967, the logical extension of a deep liking for sports. ''I thought I would like to try a rough sport. I worried that if I neglected physical culture I might get fat and lazy. I saw a karate exhibition once and decided that was what I wanted to do."
