Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, December 24, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Equality m Forthcoming marriages all tl BOMBAY, India (CP) The woman who rules the world's most populous democracy says that she does not want any spe- cial treatment for the fair sex. Prime Minister Indira Gandhi told a rally: "I do not like this talk of special rights for women. They must have equal rights, of course. The real need is for equality between men and women in all matters." Recently, Mrs. Gandhi was annoyed in parliament when a member said he did not wish to challenge some of the prime minister's statements "since she is, after all, a lady." "The days of ladies and gen- tlemen arc long past in this modern world." retorted Mrs. Gandhi. "I do not consider my- self a lady and claim no special consideration. I am a woman.'

(API Edd and Margaret Hollen have been married 82 years, seven months and 10 days. Edd, 105, and Margaret, 09. of Bear Branch, were married in the Kentucky mountains May 7, 1889. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the previous rec- ord for conventional marriages at 82 years and one day. "I think the Lord has blessed us mighty said Mrs. Hol- len. Their health is relatively good. "I'm proudest of my chil- Mrs. Hollen said. Six of nine eliildren are still alive and the Hollens have 38 grandchil- dren and 60 great grandchil- dren. Ann Landers Tomorrow is Christinas. All about us, we hear talk of peace on Earth, good will toward men. Yet we know, to our sorrow, there is no peace, and in Uw hearts of many men, there is not enough good will. Our mood vacillates between fear and a childlike hope that somehow everything will turn out all right. Yet we are uptight, anxious, frightened, sick of war, puzzled by our young and lorn by conflicting emotions. Our youth insists that civilization is out of joint. They resent having to live in a dangerous and untidy world they never made. But what genration ever made the world it had to live in? Despite "progress" of which we boast, what progress have we made? Is it progress when citizens of small towns, to say nothing of big cities, are afraid to walk within blocks of their own homes after dark? Is it progress to spend billions to put a man on the moon, where no man lives, while in our country 10 million people are inadequately fed and 20 million live in hovels and shacks? This is the age of protest, the big copout, the unwashed and the undressed. The blurring of the sexes. Young rebels spit in the face of conformity and stare us down with eyes like hypodermic needles. Some fear we arc heading toward so- cial decay going the way of the Romans and the Baby- lonians. Others applaud the new morality and dance on the grave of "phony puritanism." They herald the sex revolutisn as symptomatic of a maturing society which will encourage creativity and promote better mental health. But will it? Members of the Now Generation are searching for drugs to "expand their minds" when in reality they have merely opted to anesthetize themselves against the pain of growing up and accepting responsibility. Yet, we cannot deny that many of their complaints are valid and much of what they are railing against is, indeed, despicable and needs to be changed. This raises nettle-some questions for which there are no easy answers. Every day, each of us must make a scries of small decisions, decisions that determine the direction in which our lives will move. No one, irrespective of how wise, how highly principled or experienced, can make the right decision every rime. To err or fail is no disgrace. The disgrace lies in not learning from our mistakes, not recovering from our defeats, not getting up to try again. Since this is a problem column, I spend the greater part of every day with grief and trouble. Does it depress me? No, it does not. Alter 16 years of this work, I still find it immensely rewarding. I realize that many people who write don't want advice, they merely need someone to listen. I have been entrusted with the largest reading audience in the world. What a magnificent opportunity to shine 8 spotlight on ignorance and fear. There is no greater satisfac- tion than to serve and I will continue to do icy best. May tire new year bring peace, good health and contentment to you all. Happy reunion for brothers TORONTO (CP) Harry) Browning, 76, has been reunited with a brother he hasn't seen in 61 years and with a sister he didn't realize he had. The strange part of the re- union is that Harry and his brother, Edwin, 72, had been living here only a few miles apart for more than 40 years without knowing of each oth- er's existence. Harry Browning said in an interview Thursday that his family began to break up in 1910 when his father emigrated to Canada from London, Eng- land. Ham- ran away from home the day the family was to leave England, and Edwin didn't come to Canada until two years late. The two brothers might still not have got together if Ed- win's son and Harry's grand- son hadn't met and become friendly unaware that they were second cousins. Harry was amazed when Edwin got in touch with him. But he was even more sur- prised to leam that he had a Rough who is 58 and was born after the family came to Canada. Harry Browning said he knew that Edwin was his broth- er as soon as he saw him. "I felt the vibrations the moment you came through tile front door Harry told Edwin. "I knew you were my brother before you even spoke to me." CUP OF MILK SWEETENED It was fceoutiful, because people are beautiful.
