Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HEBALD Scilurclciy, December 19, 1970 Ann Landers DEAK ANN LANDERS: I am a divorcee, 34 but I look younger. The "problem" I am writing about isn't exactly a problem yet, but it could be. So I am writing lo Ann Landers in the spirit of "preventive medicine." I am planning to marry a man who is a few years my Junior. Phil is divorced, but he has no children. We are both in love for the very first time. The potential problem is my daughter. Babs is "l4 going on 20 if you get what I mean She is as fully developed as I was when I married. The girl has entirely too much sex appeal for a kid her age. Whenever Phil is around she behaves in a flirty manner and is shamefully aggressive. (Probably testing her feminin- ity.) I have said nothing to anyone but it bothers me a great deal. Should I speak to Babs or to Phil or should I keep quiet? Does this bode ill for the future? Babs is really a good girl but her own father ignored her and perhaps this is why she is so eager for male attention. I should tell you that my" daughter is hostile and openly competitive with me. Am I over-reacting? What do you think? Tinderbox DEAR T.: Psychiatrists call the step-daughter-dad crush the Phaedra complex. (Phaedra was a mythological character in Greek literature who married an older man.) This some- times occurs with natural fathers and sexy daughters but less often because of our cultural taboos against incest. One of the principle motivating factors, of course, is a daughters inborn competitiveness with her mother. Say nothing to Babs. She would interpret your uneasiness as fear and insecurity. Phil should be alerted to the seduc- tive aspect of the girl's behavior. His reaction should be a fatherly response, friendly but not too intimate. The poor girl's problem is, as you suggested, rejection from- her real dad. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My father-in-law is a nice he has dinner with us he does something that makes me sick to my stomach. Just before the dessert is served, he lights up a cigarette then he mashes the cigarette out in the leftover potatoes or whatever is on his plate. When I see him do this I get so mad I cuss under my breath. Don't suggest that I tell him. My husband will not tolerate any criticism of his father. Please, Ann, suggest something. My ulcer kicks up every time he does this disgusting thing. Dyspeptic Doris DEAR D.D.: The moment your father-in-law lights up, remove his dinner plate and replace it with a nice big ash- tray. Simple wasn't it? Drinking may be "in" to the kids you run with but it can put you "out" for keeps. You can cool it and stay popular. Read "Booze And You For Teen-Agers Only."

At first it seemed as though they were just going around in circles. Their effort seemed to be ail in vain. But gradually some light has begun to show through and some un- derstanding lias been develop- ed. Through long hours of discus- sion John has come to realize that he has felt trapped, not be- cause Mary has a dominating personality, but because he feels inferior to her and dependent upon her. This is the way he had felt about all adults when he was growing up. And sur- puimgly to him, he still feels that way about Mary. He dis- covered that he has been trans- fei i ing his dependency from his parents onto Mary and inward- ly rebelling against Mary as he had done against his parents. When John came to under- stand himself better and real- ized what he was doing, he ex- pressed his feelings and insight to Mary. She could hardly be- lieve her ears. For this is the way she had felt about John.' Is it she asked, "for two people to live together both feeling inferior to the oth- er and both rebelling against the other's PUBLIC 16 GAMES LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM JACKPOT (Upstairs) EVERY p.m. I________ being the dog walker in the win- ter.

ROBERT HIRSCHE LETHBRIDGE OPEN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY TltL 9 P.M. :I would not have thought so six months John replied. But paradoxical as it may sound, this is apparently what we have been doing all these years. Neither one of us has yet outgrown our childhood sense of dependency upon others, nor our rebellion against those on whom we feel dependent, or to whom we feel inferior." As they came to this surpris- ing insight John and Mary de- cided to try to be aware of how this characteristic of their per- sonalities was affecting their marriage. As they did so they were amazed at the number of P.EJ. women live longer OTTAWA (CP) The women of Prince Edward Island can Irak forward to a longer years on the Ca- nadians in any other part of the country. -The average life expectancy of the women of the Northwest Territories is less than half as long. At 23.9 years, their average is years less than for men of the same region. The 1969 figures from the Do- minion Bureau of Statistics were reported in the Commons Wednesday by Bruce Howard, parliamentary secretary to Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin, in reply to a written question by Barry Mather In most parts of the counfry, women have a longer average life than men with the biggest gap in Nova Scotia, where life expectancy for females is 69.8 years, for males 63.5. times when they became defen- sive about situations which real- ly did not warrant such emo- tion. John would feel dominated if Mary asked him to take out the garbage, or put on the storm windows or go shopping with her. Mary felt that John was being critical if he made a sug- gestion to her about keeping the house or minding the children or buying groceries. As John and Mary became aware of these things they be- gan to take a second look at their emotional reactions to- ward one another and to dis- cuss their feelings with one an- other. As they did so, a new sense of openness and freedom with one another began to de- velop. Gradually their feeling of being trapped began to dissi- pate and they discovered that though they had to be emotion- ally free, they did not have to be free of each other. In fact as their understanding develop- ed, they found a joy in being to- gether and had no desire to sep- arate. The public in and around Lethbridge and Coaldale has seen invited to attend a carol- ing expedition and coffee house at the Kate Andrews High School in Coa'.dale, which is acirig sponsored by the Inter- School Christian Fellowship jroup of the school.

These activities are co-ordi- nated under the leadership of president, Hilda Roever, a stu- dent at Kate Andrews, and under the sponsorship of Sandy Fricsen, a teacher at the school.
