Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 14, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 15 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband recently had the vasectomy operation. We are both happy about it. It was done in the doctor's office and took less than 25 minutes. My hus- band has decided that whenever birth control is discussed, he will announce that he tas had the operation. He believes an attitude of openness might help to destroy some of the peculiar notions people have about male sterilization. One of your readers said it takes a real man to have a vasectomy rather than put his wife through a much bigger operation to prevent pregnancy. I agree. But don't you believe it takes an even bigger man to admit that he has bad the operation? Comment, please. St. Louis DEAR ST.: Yes, I agree, but such an announcement would be inappropriate for just any old get-together. The chief guidelines are taste and judgment. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I have been married for more than two years. This marriage was a big mistake. (Another case of a couple of idiots who were too young, stubborn as mules and wouldn't listen to V.'e decided to split before we brought more children into the world. We already have a little boy who is nervous and high- strung because he has been subjected to so much lighting and screaming. I had a telephone call from my mother-in-law yesterday. She wants everything back that she ever gave the baby's crib. When I told her the baby is still sleeping in it, she said, "That's YOUR problem." I think my husband should step in and tell his mother off but he refuses to do it. Should I keep the crib or return it? Inc. DEAR INC.: Return it. She will then have no excuse to bug you and you can put Mrs. Hugenearf out of your life for good. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 12-year-old son is selling his homework and my husband thinks it is just terrific. He keeps saying, "That kid will make it big one of these days." Albert has fixed prices (from what I gather when he talks on the He gets a dime for an arithmetic assign- ment and 25 cents for a book review. The boy is doing a very good business. He bragged at dinner tonight that he has saved up I think this is disgraceful but whenever I open my mouth I am shouted down. My husband insists that Albert has ingen- uity, is smart amd is making his brains pay off. If I am wrong, please tell me. If my husband is wrong, please tell him. I'm beginning to doubt my own sanity. Chicago Mother DEAR MOTHER: You are not wrong and I hope you'll keep talking. In this age of tax chiseling, padded expense accounts and political pay-offs, it's a small wonder a kid would take to selling his homework. Someone should explain to the boy that it is admirable to help friends with their homework by showing them how to do it. But a person who sells "help" is supporting dishonesty in them and behaving dishonestly himself. Confidential to Would Like It In Plain English: The Presi- dent's Commission on Pornography decided that "erotic ma- terials do not contribute to the development of character de- ficits, nor does it operate as a significant factor in anti-social behavior or in crime and delinquency causation." DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please print this for all the mothers who are concerned about buying baby food in jars which might have been opened by "food tasters." Baby foods are packed in jars with a safety device that automatically tell whether or not the seal has been broken. They are called "tamper-proof lids." The consumer can pro- tect herself by selecting jars with lids having depressed centers. A raised lid indicates that the vacuum has been broken. When the consumer opens the jar she should listen for a popping sound. If she doesn't hear it the jar should be returned to the Ex. V.P. National Canner's Assn. DEAR M.L.D.: In behalf of every mother who expressed concern, (and hundreds did) I thank you. "The Bride's Ann Landers' booklet, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about weddings. To receive your copy of comprehensive guide, write to Ann Landers, in care of Canada Wide Feature Service Limited 245 St. James Street West, Montreal 126, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 35 cents in coin.

If you want t see someone you leave a note You are more likely to get an answer if you are a woman. Thsir most successful al tempt to put themselves on the Paris map was in August when a group of women laid a wreath on the Unknown War rior's Tomb at the Arc di Triomphe. On it was written "For the Wife of the Unknown Warrior." Not wanting to be caugh napping by this liberation urge the popular weekly magazine ELLE, with the collaboration of an opinion survey, organized a national inquiry into the state of women, their aspirations frustrations, and general feel ings about their situation ir 1970. A questionnaire with eighi different sections, including marriage, education, cultura affairs, work, leisure and fash ion, was sent out to worn en representing a cross-section of the population. On the basis of the answers a book will be published giving details of the results. ELLE also took a brave step in organizing a three-day meet- ing in Versailles under the title "Les Etats Generaux de li Femme" at the end of Novem- ber with the Prime Minister, M. Chaban-Delmas, in the chair. The last States-General meeting, held in Versailles in 1789, was a prelude to the French Revolution. A Pi-ess conference held in the smart Champs Elysees few days before the Versailles meeting was suddenly inter- rupted by a delegation from the Women's Liberation Move- ment. The girls were all dress- ed in trousers or blue jeans with long flowing coats or fur jerkins. All were young and nany very pretty. Thsir or- ganization was perfect. They lurried round the large, ele- gant room distributing dupli- cated sheets to the astonished guests, grabbed the micro- jhone from an even more as- onished man, and launched into a rather long speech about they disapproved of the Versailles meeting. Their reasons had the fam- liar ring of leftist literature: denial of a bourgeois society's to decide a way of life or all members of society, the obvious fact that ELLE does not represent all women and charges that the questionnaire was largely a publicity gim- mick. The speech ended with he announcement that women would no longer allow anyone o decide about their future, nit would take it into their own lands.

In administrative jobs there is woman who gives up life to become the wife of business man. After the ups and downs of bourgeois living, she leaves him, walking off with a small overnight bag. It is hishly inconclusive. How- ever, "the liberation movement sees this as an example of a step in the right direction. One pretty girl of 23 with a law degree, who works as a secretary, but rather nervous hi her new liberation-seeking role said: "I like men, but why should everything be organized for them, it can only change through a restructuring of so- ciety. Only if women fight will they have a place in the new society, and the way it's run." S1ie was vague about the movement's political affilia- tions. "We're not part of any party, we just believe in So- cialism." In two years the adepts of Women's Liberation have made up lost ground; during the six weeks of strikes in the spring of 1968, when the whole form of French society was in the balance, this ques tion was never debated. Con versations with the group ten to get heated and there is confusion of discussion on birt control, abortion, equal and equal promotion possibil ties.
