Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, December 3, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I am a reasonably attractive, sensi- ble girl, age 18, and in college. My friends consider me vivacious and fun to be with. I am a virgin and have every intention of remaining so until marriage. I'm writing about my boyfriend, but it is HIS problem and I'm not going to let him make it MINE. He says he loves me and that I'm torturing him to death because he needs more action. "H" happens to be very good-looking, bright, knows all the right words, and is ac- customed to getting what he wants. But the fact that he can't get it from me is driving him crackers. I'm not writing for advice, Ann. I don't need any. I'm just hoping you will print my letter so others out there like me will know they don't have to give a guy everything he asks for. And I'm not afraid of los- ing him either. I've already told him to shove off if the "torture" gets too much for him, but he still sticks like flypaper. In Tact Dear In: Sounds as if you've got it all together, honey. Cheers! A letter like yours is a real day-brightener. (Are you listening, Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I were married young, but we were very much in love and I was sure it was the thing to do. We now have four children (the oldest is 10) and I never complained about anything and our children are truly beautiful. My husband has always had more freedom than most men. I've never nagged or questioned him and his home was his palace or so I thought. Now for the shocker: Three weeks ago he told me out of a clear blue sky that he wants his freedom no reason, ex- cept that he married too young (we were both 19) and now that he's just turned 30, he feels he must be allowed to "try his wings." Where did I fail? Lonely And Heartsick Dear L.: You didn't fail. Your husband did. He failed to grow up and accept the responsibilities of marriage. After 11 years and four children, it's a fine time to discover he has "untried wings." My guess is that after a lit- tle high flying, his wings will get tired and he'll turn into a homing pigeon. Don't make the dumb mis- take of giving him a divorce. Insist on separate maintenance. And if you're smart, you'll leave him alone until he gets his head screwed on straight (with apologies to Herb Ann Landers's com- pletely new "The Bride's Guide" will help.

France now deeply embroiled in debating abortion laws Blue jean craze violent in Italy PARIS (Reuter) France is embroiled in debate over whether abortion should be available on if the pro-abortion forces win, it will be largely due to the ef- forts of Simone Veil, the 47- year-old minister of health. In this predominantly Roman Catholic country what is called by many a hypocritical situation has ex- isted for years, with law of- ficials turning a blind eye to the hundreds of thousands of back-street abortions that are carried out illegally in France each year. Now Mrs. Veil, with the full backing of President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's govern- ment, has presented to Parlia- ment a proposed law that would give any woman the right to an abortion in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. The majority of French peo- ple support the proposed lib- eral abortion law, say opinion polls, but it still must pass the overwhelmingly male Parlia- ment, where opposition is strong among conservatives. "I don't want to be called the minister of contraception and abortion, I have many other objectives in she said. She said abortion should be considered a last resort by women and that is why abor- tion will not be reimbursed by the French social security system. The government wants to discourage women as much as possible but at the same time they must be assured they are not committing a crime if they decide to interrupt their pregnancy, she said. Mrs. Veil is aware that she will be given a hard time when she faces members of Parlia- ment staunchly opposed to her project. Former Gaullist prime minister Michel Debre is against the project. But most deputies belonging to the socialist and Com- munist opposition are ex- pected to approve the bill. The only conditions laid down are that an expectant mother must consult a doctor, discuss the abortion with a social worker and have the operation in an approved hospital or clinic. General Charles de Gaulle once said that the contracep- tive pill "was only for fun." Now Mrs. Veil is given much of the credit, for giving all Frenchwomen the legal right to buy contraceptives. The welfare of children is Mrs. Veil's top priority among the problems she tackles. She says there are at least orphans or abandoned children in France. She is convinced that most children who grow up in or- phanages later experience difficulties in life. ROME (Reuter) The bat- tle of the blue jeans has entered a new and violent, phase in Italy. Blue denim jeans are such big business here that, for the last two years, manufac- turers, hoping to snare a cor- ner of the market for a basic- ally similar product, have been vying with each other for the most audacious publicity. "Jesus" jeans started things with its advertisements containing biblical quota- as If You Love Me, Follow to al- most nude starlets. The ads stress Vatican protests but quadrupled the manufac- turers sales. An outfit called Quarry fol- lowed with an advertisement of a woman model, nude save for a fig leaf of blue denim. Kings' Jeans has now gone one step further. The Vicenza firm, whose daily output of 000 blue jeans is distributed throughout northern Europe, has just launched an advertis- ing campaign based on vio- lence. Fifty thousand posters and paid publicity spreads in the Italian editions of both Vogue and Harper's Bazaar fashion magazines show a shaggy- haired youth apparently smashing a burning automo- bile with a bar. For a few of the Milan shops who featured the poster in their display windows, the spectre was haunting them. Outraged passers-by took the poster as an invitation to par- 'ticipate in the smashed in the shop windows. joking the kids out of their crab- biness.
