Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 12, 1970 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I can't sign my name and I can't get any mail at home because if someone should open your letter I would die of shame. I am 18 and a homosexual. Some gay boys love the life and don't want to change. I am not one of those. I want to lorry and have a family. But when I see a pretty boy I am helpless. It all begins very casually. We start out being friends and everything is wholesome and decent. Then I get ideas and the relationship changes into something else. Not all uie guys go along, but most of them do. Tnis leads me to uOusv-a pick mv friends with that goal in mind. _ I've always wanted to be a minister but I'm afraid I would get into trouble and disgrace my church as well as myself. Where can I go for help? After one of my escapades, I become so depressed that suicide seems like the only answer. DEAR WOODY: You need therapy at once. If your parents can send you to a private doctor, I recommend it. They need not know the nature of your problem. Many teens seek psychi- atric help for "severe moodiness." If you can't afford private treatment, get counselling through a mental health clinic. Look in the telephone book. I recently stated that the percentage of homosexuals made straight through therapy is very small (under 4 per I received some angry letters from psychiatrists but I'm not backing off. The statement stands. I continue to suggest therapy for homosexuals, however, not because I believe it will make them heterosexual, bill be- cause therapy can help them accept themselves as they arc. It can also help them cope with other personality disorders and reduce their feelings of self-hate and guilt. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I cheered your advice to those who are concerned about an overweight friend or relative. How right you are! If humiliation and nagging and needling could force" people to lose weight, everyone would be thin. Play it again, Ann. Formerly Fat DEAR FORM: Consider it played, and thanks for the request. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My credentials as a daughter-in- law for over 20 years qualify me to submit the following rules for all mothers-in-law. If followed, these rules are guar- anteed to produce unlimited misery, isolation and anxiety, plus possible side effects of ulcers, migraines and other assorted ills. When your son marries: Dwell on the fact that you have lost hue. Let everyone know he was your whole life not your own marriage, your other children, just HIM. Talk incessantly about him as a little boy, how he needed you and how he always ran to you with everything. Make him sound dependent for if possible. Don't hesitate to make his business YOUR business. Give advice, suggestions, opinions. After all, you are older, wiser and more experienced. What does he know? If your daughter-in-law isn't a good housekeeper, show her how things should be done. If your son isn't aware of her incompetence, alert him. After all, he grew up in your home and he should know the difference. Remind them both that you will not live forever and they will have plenty of time together after you are gone. Invite them everywhere and insist on being included in all their social activities. Practice making your son feel guilty for neglecting you. Guilt can be a powerful weapon. If you can make his wife feel guilty, too (of better yet, this can be a neat advantage for weighing future decisions in your favor. If there are children, remember they are your grandchil- dren. If the parental discipline isn't what it should be (too strict or not strict straighten them around. They may not appreciate it NOW but they will thank you later. If you have a daughter (or more than one daughter-in-law) don't fail to recognize your built in advantage. Make subtle comparisons. Keep them competing for your approval. If you play it right, your son will be caught in the middle. Remember you have your son We. You raised him. He owes everything he is or ever will be to you. His wife got into the act much later. Don't ever let her forget it. Edict From Nashville DEAR EDIE: Thank you for your rules on successful mother-in-law-hood. In addition to the possible side effects you outlined, I'd like to arid another I do hope the next letter will put the subject in its proper perspective. Homes for boys still in need TORONTO (CP) Clifton House, a Toronto residence for wayward boys, is overcrowded and more such homes are needed, Philip van dc Yen, the executive director, contends. Many of the boys taken to Clifton House have been picked up by local police who found they had been ordered to leave I home by their parents. A few boys going to the school are working and able to pay their own way. The others are given ihe opportunity tu itlieilu school. "Wherever possible we try to leave the boys in the schools they've been attending when they come to us. However, if the school is too far away transfers may be Mr. van de Ven said. Eighty per cent of the home's operating cost is underwritten by the provincial government through the department of so- cial and family services. The other 20 per cent comes from private donations. Besides through the police, some boys arrive at the home through family courts, schools or the Children's Aid Society, Sometimes a boy will apply for acceptance on his own. But hundreds knocking at the door have had to be turned svray, Mr. van de Ven said. The residence has opened its own classroom for boys not yet ready to take the discipline of regular school, and the Toronto board of education has provided a teacher. Here they stay until they can fit into a regular school routine. Pantsuit takes back seat in Montreal spring showings MR. AND MRS. AtAN WAYNE FUKAM1 Fukami-Mori Rev. D.

Varsity editor David Frank said the man has a criminal record because of activities as a youth and deportation pro- ceedings against him have be- gun, but if he were married to a Canadian citizen he would have a better chance of re- maining in Canada.

DOWNTOWN ON SEVENTH STREET "ESTABLISHED IN LETHBRIDGE OVER 31 YEARS" PHONES 327-3232 327-5560 MONTREAL (CP) The antsuit, which in just two ears became a stock item in Iraost every women's ward- obe, was given a gentle push nto the background in one of lontreal's first spring show- ngs. Knickers and cut-off pants, not replacing the slacks nd tunic look, at least gave it ome competition in the collec- ion designed by Hugh Garber or Margo Dress. The shortened pants ended ust below the knee, sometimes and sometimes plain, 'aired with them were skinny ib sweaters and jackets or boleros, cropped at the waist and accented with the wide belt and heavy buckle. Also new were "hot more formally known as hot veather clothes. They were cut about half-way down the thigh the same length as a semi- respectable mini skirl used to worn with a matching dress, partly unbut- toned to show the pants be- neath. Street dresses, designed the over-25 woman in mind, were in imported knits, both >lain and jacquard. The high- ighting color was flax, follow- ed by red, navy and black. Other popular spring colors, such as soft blue, lilac and pale jreen, appeared in knit cos- tailored coat over a dress with elbow-length sleeves and easy skirt slit to above the oiee. Skirt lengths were mainly 42 and 44 inches, just right for Jie model figure but requiring alteration for anyone shorter :han five-foot-six. On the pen- cil-slim models, the skirts just brushed the top of the calf. Every dress carried a belt On some it was at the empire evel, to be lowered slightly on arge sizes. On others it was at the waist and took the form of two-inch-wide patent leather >r a drawstring woven through )rass eyelets. Several styles in flax-colored canvas had ribbed material in- sert at the midriff to empha- iize the waist. Courage grows with loving care Stitches knitted in a sick room often fly half way across the world to keep a shivering child warm. A USC certificate of ap- preciation was recently award- ed to an elderly Edmonton housewife. Already crippled with arthritis she was hospital- ized with a broken hip. She said, "I can't get back to my knit- ting for the USC fast enough. Ki owing I'm helping those lit- tle ones gives me a reason for living."
