Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our IG-year-old daughter is a very sweet, rather pretty (jirl. JMsy is petite brunette, nice figure, and is ,-divays gelling compliment on her clothes. Betsy has no confidence, in herself because she lias never had a dale. Frankly, 1 can'l understand il. liave scon some of her friends who are very popular and Uiey are not nearly as altraclivo as Betsy. There are at least a half dozen toys who consider her a pal. They phone for help with homework but they never ask her anyplace. I have suggested to Betsy that she invite some boys over (one at a lime) but she is afraid they will consider her pui'lry. She is also afraid lhal if she were turned down she'd die of shame. How do I gel across lo her if you want something in this world you have lo go out after it. A big school parly is coming up and if Betsy doesn't get asked, she'll feel terrible. What can 1 do to help? Perplexed Mom. DEAR MOM: You can stop making such a federal case of Betsy's dalclcssnoss. The girl is only IS and probably a late bloomer. Her lack of confidence may well he the result of your anxiety over Ihc fact that she isn't popular. Simmer down. Mom. An iinaggrcssive girl Ihcsc days is a joy. Betsy will be asked" out in due time by a young man who likes her style. She'll be a lot more coinforlahle with him than with a dude she captured with a battle plan. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You have helped a great many people over Ihe rough spots in their lives. I hope you can help me. I am 68 years old, have four grown children ajid six grandcliilciren. My eldest daughter is a widow. She and her 16-year-old son live near me. I love all my grandchil- dren, but 1 feel closer to Robbie because we have spent so much time together. The boy's mother went to the Mayo Clinic for tests a few weeks ago nl the suggestion of her physician. Robbie stayed wilh me. My daughter made out a will before she left and asked me to read it in her absence. I was heartsick to discov- er that in the event of her death Robbie was lo be sent lo another city to live with her friends. My name was not even mentioned. Not even a rusty pin did she think (o leave me. My daughter is a woman of means. Her husband let! her well fixed. I am comfortable also so that is not the point. Thank God, the tests were negative and my daughter re- ceived a clean bill of health, but i am crushed lo think dial she would ignore me this way. What do you think, D. C Heartache DEAR D.C.: Children usually outlive their parents and I'm sure this was why your daughter did nol mention you in her will. Say nothing and mark it up lo her rciusal to deal realistically Kith all of life's cruel tricks. DEAR ANN LANDERS: J am 13 and have a problem T need help with right away. T know you are busy so 1 will cume to the point although I could write a hook on what T have gone through with rr.y crazy mother. She has been married and divorced three times in the last nine years. You wouldn't believe UK screwballs she picks for husbands. After her last divorce she swore on a Bible that she wasn't going Lo look at another man for at least five years. Yesterday she laid me she is going to get married again. The guy she picked this time makes the last lunatic look good. I lold her il she marries him I am going to pack up and go live with my grandmother. I nearly flunked last year I couldn't get a night's sleep with all the yelling, fighting and drinking in the house. Moms current boyfriend is a lush and has Roman hands and Russian fin- gers, if you know what I mean. Do I have the right to make this decsion even if I am a minor? My grandmother is a lovely person. Grandpa died three years ago. She is lonely and she wants me. Wlicse permission do 1 need? Strikes Is Out DEAJt THREE: If .vonr mother refuses lo give you per- mission, your grandmotlier should talk to the judge who granted your mclber custody when she divorced your fallwr. Good luck, dear. Friday, Fcbtuoiy 4, THE ICTHCniDSS IIEr.ALD J7' BERNADETTE DEVLIN Basher Bernadette THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CPI The girl once dubbed Northern Ice- land's Joan of Arc has lost much of her remaining glamor in a wildcat House of Commons scuffle far removed from her early impact there. Few freshman MPs have .swept Westminster with (he appeal of Eemadelle Dev- lin, one of six children of a County Tyrone carpenter. Raised in poverty and a bright university student, she was elected Independent MP for Mid-lister at the age of 21 on a passionate civil rights p 1 a I f o r m t h c youngest woman ever lo reach Parlia- ment here. .Self-srlioolod in Die rousing words of Irish republican her- oes, she took the Commons by slorm with a maiden speech of such eloquence that mem- bers said nothing like it had been heard this century. Over- night she became (he cf British politics. Thai was less llian three years ago. Her eloquence was quickly spent. She hammered continu- ously on Ihe theme of Ulster Roman Catholic grievances, bul the fire was lost amid j class-war tirades. Words finallv (ailed her in Monday's Commons scene. Enraged by her inability to grl a word in, Ihe psychology graduate lore into Home Sec- retary Reginald Maudung with fisls and fingernails. REVENGE SHEET Afterwards she said she was sorry she didn't go for nis throal. Referring lo the Ixindonderry Catholics shot dead by Urilish Iroops Sun- day, she said each wing of the Irish Republican Army had vowed to kill 13 soldiers in is 26 coffins coining back to England and I won'l shed a tear over any single one of them." Now the tabloids are calling her "Wildcat'1 and "Hasher Bernadetlc." Political observers are now writing her off as a serious influence. Walter Terry, polit- ical editor of The Daily Mail, said her display of violence was "about all she's got left as- an argument "She has become rather sad and twisted and the tragedy is it could all have been so much wrote Terry. He said she is a particular disappointment lo the civil rights workers in Ulster who had seen her as the supreme campaigner wilh to Ihe seat of power. Bemadette has never been far from the headlines in her three years at Westminster. A fund-raising tour of the United States ended in a row about what she did with the money. She was jailed for joining i stone-tluxjwing crowd on Ihc Deny barricades. Last year she gave birth lo a baby girl, refusing to name the father. As she wryly admits in her autobiography, The Price of My Soul: "I haven't done mi- racles, freed the people, pro- duced civil rights or lived up to (he image of SI.
