Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 31, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a sure cure for these slobby women who inflict themselves on neighbors in the morning when most of us are trying to do our housework, get the laundry done and so on. When we moved to this city two years ago everyone was very cordial. The neighbors were friendly and considerate. A certain woman fell into the habit of dropping in on me immediately after my husband left for work and the children were off to school. After several months of it, I told her I didn't have time for coffee, but since she seemed to be "free", would she mind polishing the dining room furniture. I gave her the cloth and polish and I went upstairs. Thirty minutes later she called to me to say she had finished. I yelled back-"Fine, now go to the living room. The tables in there really need it." Five minutes later I heard the front door slam. I went downstairs and found a note on the kitchen table. It read, "If I wanted to do housework, I'd stay home and do my own." She was quite cool after that little incident and I have never been bothered by her since. If you think this vignette might help someone else pass it along.-Warren, Ohio Winner DEAR WINNER: I do and I shall. You've proved there's more than one way to get rid of a pest and get your dining room furniture polished at the same time. Thanks for sharing this bit of shrewdness. # * * ' DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our daughter is being married soon and our funds are limited. The boy's family was very considerate. We agreed on a guest list of 50. Now we have run into a terrific problem. Although the invitations were addressed to "Mr. and Mrs.," some of the guests returned their acceptance cards and let us know that they plan to bring their children. One couple wrote, "Of course we'll have all five youngsters along. We wouldn't want them to miss such a beautiful affair." Several other couples let us know they are bringing a "date" for their daughter-or an "intended son-in-law." We don't know what to do, Ann. We haven't the nerve to call these people and tell them they can't bring anyone- that the invitation is for "Mr. and Mrs." Please help us come to a sensible decision.-In A Spot DEAR SPOT: You have a choice: Either keep quiet and foot the bill for the extras,, or phone the people and tell them "no extras," in which case you should be prepared to lose a few friends. The best way to avoid this problem is to enclose a card saying, "So sorry, this invitation is for 'Mi-, and Mrs.' only. The seating facilities are limited." This suggestion comes too late for you, but it might help someone else. THE BETTER HALF "I was really sort of hoping for 1952 again."

Golf-wise gals know score at famed Crosby tournament What do a dentist's wife, a teacher, a singer, an honor student, several Navy and Army wives and a former Santa's helper have in common? They are typical scorers for the Crosby golf tournament - the only major golf tournament to use women scorers exclusively. The Crosby Classic is played on the three golf courses of California's Monterey Peninsula, where scenic terrain and an abundance of wildlife help make the Pro-Am event unique. Why women scorers? First of all, the tournament needs scorers because television spotters need information. When the final rounds of the 31st annual Crosby Pro-Am are televised on NBC in January 15 and 16, - the spotters will be clamoring for data. Therefore, attractive golf-wise gals have become the eyes, ears and legs of the tournament. They follow the Pro-Am pairs around the course, relaying details to the TV reporting teams. "No talking" is the rule, unless a golfer speaks first or one of the girls must have specific information. The whole idea was started some 8 years ago under the direction of chief scorer, Brooke Nicholas, and Mary Ann Clark, assistant chief scorer, when Brook rounded up duffers and golf widows who knew the difference between a wedge and a driver. Among recent scorers were Navy wife and former model Charlene Cochran, who met her husband when she was employed as a department store Santa's helper; Debbie Joyce, a professional singer; and Sue Fisher, wife of a Sacramento dentist. Many of the girls are accomplished golfers. Jill Houghton, 17-year-old honor student, carries a 9 handicap. Her mother, Jane, is an avid golfer and another faithful Pro-Am scorer. The scorers' obvious feminine charm is never a handicap on the course. The golfers are dedicated to golfing. The girls, to their responsibilities. "Crosby weather" - notorious at the Pro-Am because it varies from bad to miserable to absolutely horrible - did create a particularly feminine difficulty in 1968. One scorer complained about a "crawling thing" on her face. It turned out to be an artificial eyelash, washed away by rain. Collection of heirlooms dates back to 100 years love fs ... kissing only her at the New Year's Eve party. CaprrigM mi lOS �MCtLIS TlUtS STONY MOUNTAIN, Man. (CP) - Atop a windswept hill near the edge of this prairie community 15 miles north of Winnipeg stands a storehouse of antique treasures, the warden's house built in 1873 with the Stony Mountain penitentiary. It has been home to Mr. and Mrs. Ted S. Harris since December, 1960 and will be passed on to his successor when Mr. Harris retires at the end of this year. For Mrs. Harris, the retirement and the evacuation of the house mean an end to her 39 years as a prison wife. But inside the house is a collection of heirlooms dating back 100 years. Inside the spacious front hall, on the newel post of a carved-wood curving staircase stands the figure of a pantalooned metal gentleman dubbed "Lord Selkirk" by the Harrises, who had Mm wired for light. The statue was given them by Derek Bedson, clerk of the Manitoba executive council, and grandson of Col. Samuel L. Bedson, first warden of the penitentiary who brought the figure west with the Wolselcy expedition in 1870. The Harrises intend to "leave it where it belongs" in the old house. Another antique that will remain is a billiard table "taken at the Battle of Batoche" by the colonel. Mr. and Mrs. Harris have their own furniture, some of which dates back to the early Manitoba settlers, to complement the old brick house. One of their favorite pieces Is a large sterling silver coffee pot and embossed tray engraved with the name Robert Davis, Mr. Harris' great-grandfather, to whom it was presented in 1869 by ttie Halifax Curling Club. A hand-painted tea set near the coffee pot was a wedding gift to Mrs. Harris' great-grandmo'ther. Antique silver and china ornaments also dot carved wood mantels of the three open fireplaces which stretch to the ceilings of the living room, dining room and second-floor guest room. Other family treasures trace Mrs. Harris's French and English ancestry. One table with an inlaid top was made from an organ and a delicate settee and cherrywood rocker bear the mark of French craftsmanship. PRISON WIFE - Mrs. Ted S. Harris, wife of the warden of Stony Mountain penitentiary, has been a prison wife for 39 years. Mrs. Harris is shown dusting "Lord Selkirk" a pantalooned metal gentleman that stands atop a newel post in the warden's house. Inside the house, built in 1873, is a collection of heirlooms dating back 100 years.
