Please, Ann, tell your readers not to give out information to a stranger on Uie telephone. It might make them sitting ducks. Keniuid folks that a little caution can go a long way. -Heard It All. Dear All: We'd make a peach of a pair. You ve heard it all and I've read it all. Thanks for writing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was happy to see the letter from the woman who wrote that she was sick and feed of getting turned down by her husband. He was always too tired, or too busy, or he had a headache, or he had to see the finish of the late, late movie on TV. I've been down that road, too-and I can tell you it's a lonesome one. About 15 months ago I came right out and announced to my husband that he was pushing me into another man's arms. I told him flatly I was too young and healthy to live a sexless life. He thought I was talking tlirough my hat, but lie was mistaken. The very next week I took a lover. I have never been happier or felt, better in my life. My body no longer aches to be held. My lips no longer ache to T am fulfilled and content. It's a glorious feeling to be wanted and loved. I hope every man who turns Iris wife down will wonder if she wrote this letter. Don't print my city or 'em guess. DEAR FULL: Here's your I'm letting 'em guess. They can guess about the next letter, too! tt DEAR ANN LANDERS: You are so biased in favor of the men 1 could wring your neck. Why is sex so important? It's a crying shame flat the woman who was hungry for love and signed her letter "Too Late For Me" didn't find my husband before I did. She would have been the perfect mate for my Bounrt-The-Clock Romeo. Sex would have cured her throbbing headache, her ulcer, her flu, pneumonia, hives, earache, backache and bunions. Sex would have also solved all her emotional problems and taken her mind off her financial she didn't get pregnant again, that is.

Dressed in minis or midis and sometimes ma.xis, wearing their colorful kimono only on cere- monial occasions, many of them have minds, jobs and careers of Uieir own. Of the female population of 52 million, a total of has jobs. Many are seorataries, tex- tile workers, department store clerks, teachers, nurses, leather workers, food processors.
