Ann _anders DEAB ANN LANDERS: The letter from the couple who travelled from Maine to California and counted a dozen dead dogs along the highway hurt my heart. May I offer a few suggestions to people who really care about animals? First, if you witness any kind of cruelty to an animal, report it at once to the Humane Society. And don't be afraid to give your name. Second, whenever you go into a pet shop, check the cages and see if the anunals have enough wa.ter. H the supply is low (or non-existent), go to the manager and ask him about it. Third, have your pet neutered. You wUl then not be burdened with unwanted litters. This costs very little compared with the effort and the energy, not to mention feeding fourteen Grerman Shepherd pups. If you have an animal you don't want, don't dump him. Take him to an animal shelter. If they are unable to find a "home they -will put him to sleep - which is much kinder than letting him; starve to death m- get hit by a cai-. I hope you can make room for this in your column. I can think of no better way to get a message to millions of people. Tliank you. -A Plain, Ordinary Citizen Who Cares DEAR CITIZEN: I care, too. Here's your letter and my thanks. * � * DEAR ANN LANDERS: You must be a mind reader. Your letter and advice concerning the selfish, money-hungry children who resented then- fa,ther's second wife appeared the day after I let loose on a stepson and daughter-in-law. They had complained that there would be nothing left for them when we announced we were taldng a two-month trip. These are the same two who believed they should be permitted to go thiT)uigh their father's home after their mother was buried and help themselves to the paintings, silver, linens, antique furniture - anything they wanted. It never ocamred to them that perhaps their father might still enjoy having these things around. When I nrarried Jason, his children resented ffie immediately, and I knew why. It meant nothing to them that he wiould have a companion, someone to love him, to take care of his needs and give his life new meaning. They viewed his second marriage strictly in terms of less money for them. Thank you, Ann, for speaking out in behalf of second wives, such as myself. We need all the help we can get and you have been very supportive. -Second Time Around in Brook-line, Massachusetts DEAR BROOK: Happy to be of help. A good second marriage can add years to a widower's life. And sometimes, that second marriage is a lot better than the fu-st. � * t Please rsnd inquiries and requests to Landers Reader-mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., Ciiicago, 111. 60611. Income rises HONG KONG (AP) -The average family income in Hong Kong has risen more than 60 per cent in the last five years to $158, a census showed. Government officials said the cost of living went up 25 per cent in the same period. travelled it. She can tell you about the night in Tuscaloosa, Ala., when a little gb-1 belted her with a two-by-four. When Vivian grabbed the board, the kid threw sand in her face. She can also tell you about, the night in Rimouski, Que., when a drunk ripped off her bathing suit. She can tell you of growing up with her brothers, wrestlers Mad Dog and Butcher, as the youngest of 12 children in Montreal. Vivian, 20, a five-foot six-inch blonde who tips the scales at 160 pounds, is a woman wrestler and her goal in life is simple. She wants to be world champion. In her dressing room before a recent match in Montreal - a first for the city with women in the ring - Vivian was restrained, articulate and introspective as she discussed her plans for the future. A few minutes later, as she entered the arena to a choi-us of stentorian boos and colorful otiscenities, she assumed an en- Shepherded by her two brothers-total weight 540 pounds-she did not have to worry about two-by-fours and facefuls of sand. After the ch-arm school bit and a brief flmg at modelling, Vivian decided to be a wrestler "because it sounded interesting." So, for the last two years she's wrestled in places like Oklalwma City, Raleigh, N.C., Mirjieapolis, Waterloo, Iowa, and Stillwater, Okla., averaging five cities a week. "I hated school," she says, "so I quit after Grade 10. "Injuries? Sure I've had a few. "One night in North Carolina, I busted my sacroiliac . . . ] was in hospital for 14 days." She says the catcalls and obscenities don't bother her. "I enjoy it, it's a challenge." In her Montreal appearance, Vivian wins the third fall and the match and her brother holds her hand up in victory. Projectiles arrive in the ring at about the same time as the first chorus of boos. Vivian tries her best to look the heavy, It doesn't work. Perhaps Iha^ is because, a few minutes before the bout, she had been seen m her dressing room with her brother's young daughter. She held the child in lier arms and was gently rocking her to sleep. love is. 1 * / , . . ii earing the tie she made you. *n los iMoriTi run Fridoy, December 17, 1971 - THE lETHBRIDGE HERAID - 17 \'New Eastern Star executive Mrs. Vera Band was install- Mr, R.
