Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, February 15, 1971 THE IETHBRIOGE HERAID 17 Ann Landers Women's Lib just a beginning [according to American pollster Dear Ann Landers: The problem isn't mine it's the whole family's. My mother thinks my brother Bob (age 12) needs a psychiatrist because he failed in every subject. Only last week the teacher told Mom that Bob is one of the smartest kids she has seen in all her years of teaching, but he is "unmotivated." On top o! failing everything. Bob wrote a note to the teacher the day after lie got his report card. He told her he hates his whole family including me. I'm 14 years old and I always thought Bob was my friend. Do you think my brother needs a psychiatrist? He seems normal to me, although he is quite lazy. Thank you. -Big MS Dear Sis: A kid who fails every subject and writes his teacher a note saying he hates his family needs outside help. His problem goes deeper than laziness. He has a desire to fail which is probably related to his parents' eagerness for him to succeed. Bob's letter to the teacher was a cry for help. He was unleashing pent-up hostility. I hope your parents see to it that he gets counselling. He needs it. Dear Ann Landers: A man with whom I have been very friendly (we work in the same office) invited me to his daughter's wedding. Mr. R. told me I could bring my boy- friend, but if we had other plans it would be O.K. and to let him .know. As it turned out, we did have other plans. I sent a gift and thought no more about it. The wedding was yesterday. This morning when Mr. R. saw me in the office he gave me a very cold hello. After three hours of sub-zero treatment, he really let me have it. He said my not showing up for his daughter's wedding proved that I was a phony friend. Did I do something horrible, or is HE the phony friend for not being understanding? -Philadelphia Inquirer Dear Philly: The quality of our relationships is shaped by the choices we make. The fact that you did not state in your letter what your boyfriend had planned instead, leads me to believe that you could have attended the wedding had you wanted to Your co-worker obviously had this feeling, also. In my opinion you made a poor choice and it has cost you a friend. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Two years ago I went through a messy divorce. I was depressed and miserable becauss I was the first in a family of five girls to have a marriage failure. Two weeks after the divorce I met a man who had beautiful hair and teeth. We were married after a whirlwind courtship. A few months ago I noticed my husband's hair is thinning out. Last week he went to a dentist who discovered a gum condition that is threatening his teeth. I know this sounds crazy but these two features are very important to me. With- out them he wouldn't look like much. I'm ashamed to tell anyone how worried I am. Can you give me some moral support and word of advice? Please. DEAR ANON: If your marriage was held together by hair and teeth I'm surprised it lasted too years. Stop being foolish. If your husband loses his hair he can buy a rug. If he loses his teeth, he can get china clippers. These days experts can rebuild, restore and transplant almost anything. (Remem- ber, I said NEW YORK (AP) Most American women are happy with their lot as wives and omcmakers, but the militant liberation movement s just a beginning, according pollster Louis Harris. Releasing the results of a poll rf 3.000 women and men ken across the United States ast fall, Harris said the force Behind the women's movement 'ill come from a coalition of lack women, the divorced and cparated. and single, under 30 'oUege-educatrl women.

Harris said that it was not men who hinder the liberation )f women, but women's lack of ,elf confidence, the remains of he Puritan ethic and the ailure to find the proper meth- ods for expressing grievances.

Mrs. Long, a widow si 1941, lives with her younger travels the few blocks from her home to the hospital.
