The bachelor prime minister was replying lo questions from the only woman member of parliament Grace Macinnis (NTJP Vancouver- Kingsway) shortly after he ta- bled the report. Outside the house Mrs. Mac- innis indicated her disappoint- ment with the answer she re- ceived from the prime minis- ter. She called on women's or- ganizations all over the coun- try to start mounting a cam- paign to force the government to act on the report's recom- mendations.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: You lold who in- sisted that her sexless marriage was just fine, that it would be a lot belter if she and her husband learned to enjoy sex. That's quite a statement. How do YOU know? As a woman whose marriage has been full of sex and nothing else I take issue with you. Conversation is virtually nonexistent hi our home. If I want to hear an adult voice I turn on the radio. When we first married 18 years ago I thought the eagerness of the young buck would diminish in time but I was wrong. Last week my husband and I returned' home from a 400 mile drove all the way. It was 3 a.m. when he finally turned the key in the door. Would you believe the sight of me taking off my stocking fired him up? Have you ever heard of such a thing? My entire married life has been this way. And don't tell me I'm lucky that millions of women would give anything if their husbands found them that attractive. I don't feel lucky. I just feel tired. I wish you'd print more letters like the one from and skip the other kind. Who cares how many times a nut in Canada ted sex with his wife? Your column is so biased in favor of men you make me sick. If you print my letter I'll eat the newspaper the day it appears. Detroit, Michigan DEAR DETROIT: Start nibblin', sister, and consider your- self fortunate it's not the Sunday edition. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please inform my mother that the more she keeps shoving your column down my throat the less apt I am to road it. For years 1 never missed day. Now at age 17 I find myself refusing to read it (although I really want to) for the simple reason my mother keeps pressuring me. Every column on sex, drugs, out-of-wedlock pregnancy, is presented with the usual comment: "Here read It burns me up because I get to feeling she doesn't trust me. Several months ago you printed a letter from a 15-year-old girl who had this same problem. When my mother read that letter she accused me of writing it. I told her, "I didn't write it but I could have." For a few weeks sire stopped bugging me but now she has started again and it makes me hate both you and her. I realize this is crazy but 1 want to tell you and my mother and thousands of other mothers who are doing the same tiling to knock it off. You are defeating your own pur- pose. Gridged In Georgetown. DEAR GRIDGED: Bravo for you. I'm glad you wrote. And how all you cats who are having the same It's your turn to do a little clipping and shoving. Parents are not helping me get across to their teen-agers when they force my column on them and make it mandatory reading. How wise was the man who said, "I can defend myself against my enemies, but.
