Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DIOMl ANN I.ANDKRS: I can'l lalk to people. 1 don't knew to say. I can'l sUirt a couversaliun nr keep one Koine. When I'm in n Broup I sil ami listen. By I he lime I think somotliini! to say, il's loo laic. My husband is n wonderful talker. He has been to so many plates ami dune su many Unrigs. like lo listen lo him. Hill I liovcn't been any place and I never do anything Even in a family group I'm a (lummy. I just sit there. It is so embarrassing when snmnonc nolices. For example. Insl nielli my In'oUiur-in-law piped up, "And now let's hear from llic silent member" meaning me, of course. Every- nne laujilvd ami I wanted to die This problem is ruining niy Please help. .Super Quid. SIJPKK: Wlicrc (lid you get the idea Ilial people expeel tit-slinking pronouncements or pearls of wisdom every lime you ripen mouth'.' Why are you afraid to say something that is less than brilliant? Does everyone who speaks up in your presence display oracular wisdom? If you read this newspaper thoroughly, you should have a fairly good idea of v.-lial's going on in the world and if you don'l maylic THIS is a good place lo start. Speak up when you have something lo say and don't feel self-conscious if you remain silent. The world needs morn listeners and fewer talkers. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 would like to say something to the 17-year-old guy who just discovered sex lasl year and Is making it wilh 12 differer.l girls. He can't understand why he is dead tired all the lime and wants In know if it's "nor- mal." His signature was "Dragging My Caboose." 1 can tell you a thiiif! or two about that lunatic because I was one of the 12. The reason I know lie's guy is be cause he was bragging all over school this morning thai his letter made Ann Landers' column. The minute he made thai stalemcnl, his count went down to 11. I used to think you were n square, talking aboul virginity and the value of saving yourself for somebody decent, the high price of free, love and how Hie girl always pays whether uric realizes il al the lime or not. You said Ihc price is guilt anil shame, a ruined reputation and finally M self respect. You hit mo right in the face with all of it. Ann, and I want, tn let know I'm .sorry 1 ridiculed you awl I've learn- ed my lesson. Slow -Study M.S. The envelope was sealed but I opened it to add this. Two oliicr nirl.s in my gym class just told me they were also among the 12 Now they want nnthing more to do with him. This moults bis count is down to nine. If it keeps lip he's going lo get plenty of rest. Thanks, Ann. S.S. DKAR S.S.: Never mind about HIM, honey. Keep this column handy.

JOI1S ASSURED They learn basic, traditional in this type of needlework methods have not changed with (he years and then it is a question of experi- ence and the development of their own individual skills. There is such a demand now for Uw school's services that apprentices who pass their two-year course success- fully are assured jobs in the workrooms, where commis- sions are carried out. Others may go on to restoration work in museums. And today many of Britain's stately homes open lo the pub- lic have skilled embroiderers permanently employed main- taming thter needlework treasures.
