Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I have been under psychiatric care for a year and it's your fault. You brainwashed me. Your advice on prumarital sex is unrealistic and harmful to young people. The lavender and lace platitudes you've been dishing out may have been O.K. in your day but your day has passed. Sex is not evil. Sex is normal. Sex is fun. Sex is beauti- ful. This goes for sex before marriage as well as after. A few words by a priest, minister, rabbi or judge will not suddenly liberate a girl from lifelong restraints against her own normal biological drives. The notion that a sweetheart or a husband will "throw It up to the girl" later is from the Dark Ages. Husbands who love their wives and men who love their sweethearts will love them regardless. Print this letter if you have the guts. It might help oilier guilt-ridden females who, ir.a, were kookcd up by your outdated advice. Dear S: Here's a letter from the Dark Ages. The postal service was very poor in those days. The letter arrived this morning: Deal- Ann Landers: If I had the nerve I'd take an over- dose. Here's my story: Johnny and I went together for three months. I was just plain nutty about him. He felt the same about me. I was 19 he was 22. We were so perfect to- gether. We iaugheu at the same things, enjoyed the sains movies, art, music, moonlight swims, cookouts. One night Johnny said he wanted to marry me and since we were both in love it made no sense to withhold any- thing. He said sex was designed in heaven for people who were in love. It all sounded so right. He had a way of putting words together so they made sense. I gave myself to him that night. For the next few days he was cool and distant. I asked why. He finally told me he had always believed I was a virgin. Now he had some doubts. When he asked the ques- tion outright I told him the truth. There had been someone else when I was 17. A lifeguard at a summer resort. I was a dumb kid, dying to learn what life was all about. He was experienced and willing to teach me. I knew it was wrong from the beginning. I never even wrote to him after the vacation was over. I told Johnny in as honest a way as I could. His reac- tion nearly killed me. He called me a tramp said I had misrepresented myself, acting so pure and virginal. He took back his ring. That was the last time I saw him. A week has passed and the hurt is no better. Will I ever be able to trust a man again? I can't believe Johnny cared that much about a lifeguard who meant nothing to me. I think he was just using it as an excuse. He got what he wanted and now he'll move OB and look for a new challenge. I hope every girl whose boyfriend is trying to talk her Into premarital sex will clip this letter and keep it where she can reread it. I wish I had seen a letter like it a few years ago. Late For Me. Dear T.L.: You did in fact you saw many letters like it, but you weren't tuned in. Now you must forget about the past and look to the future. For Lord's sake don't consider yourself "ruined" or unworthy of a first-rate guy. It's what you are today that matters. And one thing is certain. You are wiser.

The recently-formed youth organization1 in the city. OTTAWA (CP) A sugges- tion that two women .senators be appointed fron: each province would only bo to get a start on equaly opportunity for women in the governing structure, Anne Francis says. Miss Francis, chairman of the royal commission on the status of women, was replying in a tel- evision interview to a sugges- tion that such a requirement for senator selection on the basis of just constituted another "orm of discrimination. But that's to get it Hiss Francis said on the CTV program Question I'criod. The >rogram was taped earlier for Allowing Sunday. The commission mem hers thought it was 'very odd" thai cnly about a dozen women had ever been appointed to the Se- nate and "that there surely would be at least two women in iach province who would be good senators." We hoped that Io make up or the lack of women in the Se- nate that this could be done." EQUAL STATUS Miss Francis said women, in seetdng equai status with men, do not want to foster new forms of discrimination. But there had some feeling that "people ust don't think about women when they're making appoint- ments" and the two women- per province suggestion had been set out to overcome tin's. The suggestion would apply onlv until "the imbalance is changed." The commission report, brought down several weeks ago, suggested that housewives be eligible for pensions under the Canada Pension Plan even though they would not be paying into it. i There were four women mcm- j bers of the Commons when the pension plan legislation was passed and Miss Francis was asked why they had not pressed for such action or voled against the bill. "Maybe they didn't think of she replied. Miss Francis, a broadcaster and writer, noted that she had reported on the pension bill at the time and "it didn't occur to me." PROVEN ABILITY Miss Francis said Hie report flressed that a woman who has run a home and raised a family s... lias proved organiznl.fon ability, I amount of work that women do which is ignored as well as the immense voluntary work that women do in voluntary organi- zations which is incredible." Yet many such women p'icd for jobs and were dis- missed because thoy wera tagged with a label saying they had no job experience.
