Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 22, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 22, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is an urgent cry for help. Throw me a rope - even if it's just one single sentence. Our only daughter ran off and miarried a fellow we never cared for. I accepted her decision when I saw we had no choice. They now have a beautiful little eight-month-old baby girl and my daughter seems very happy. The problem is my husband. He wants nothing to do with her or the grandchild. They visit me in the afternoon when he isn't home. Yesterday when my husband walked into the house and found them here he mumbled, "hello," and walked to the back of the house. You would have thought he was a repairman who had come to fix something. My daughter was heartbroken. I could see the hurt in her eyes. Neither of us said anything but we were thinking the same thoughts. Is there anything I can do, Ann? My husband has always been stubborn as a mule. For example, he hasn't spoken to my brother for 14 years because he bought a furnace without consulting him. Last month he rain off an insurance man because he was driving a Volkswagen and they aren't union made. We have no sex life. I clean the house and cook the meals and he pays the bills. We have no communication, no social life. I've thought of leaving hut where could I go? I don't drive. I have only a high school education. How would I support our two sons? Counselling is out. He is "satisified with things as they are." Please answer soon. I hope I'm around to read it. -Depressed Woman (I was going Women must be capable EDMONTON (CP) - Women seejing political office must be much more capable than men, Nellie Peterson of Mayerthorpe, Alta., a three-time candidate, said here. Mrs. Peterson said most political parties nominate women candidates in constitutencies where they have little chance of winning, then point with pride to the number of female candidates being fielded. She spoke during a panel discussion at a forum on women in politics. Deloris Russell of Toronto, editor of Chatelaine Magazine, said oldline political parties remain "exclusive male clubs," and supported her statement by saying only 22 female members of parliament have been elected since 1918 when women first received the right to vote. Of 1,380 appointments made by the Liberal government since 1968, only 116 were women, she Raid. to sign "Depressed Wife," but that word doesn't fit.) DEAR WOMAN: You don't say how old you are but I suspect you are too young to dry up and blow away. Seek ' counselling for yourself if the mule won't go. You might decide later to get some job training and make a new life for yourself. Your husband must support his sons no matter what you decided to do. So please get going, dear, and good luck to you. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a girl 16 and this guy I always thought was so super is 17. I have been wanting him to notice me for a year, and he finally did. Our first date was Friday night. He invited me to go to a three-hour documentary at a drive-in. I would have preferred a coffee date so we could talk and get acquainted but he was determined to see the movie. After about an hour of what I thought was a very fascinating film, he turned to me and said, "I'm bored. I'll bet you're a neat kisser. Show me." I told him to forget it - that I was enjoying the movie. A few minutes later he grabbed me. I let him have it right in the mush. Unfortunately, I broke his glasses. I said I was sorry but it was his own fault. He got very nasty and yelled about sending me the bill for new glasses and if I refused to pay it he would send the bill to my father. Do I have a responsbility to pay for his glasses? Yes or no? -Shattered In Sheboygan DEAR SHAT: No. And I doubt very much that he would send the bill to your father, considering the circumstances. The moral of this story is that a guy who makes passes should take off his glasses. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: These days, when you hear so many stories about hus bands, wives slipping around to motel rooms in the middle of the day, divorces among close friends (people you were sure had a solid marriage), it might be a relief to get a letter from a woman who is happily married to a wonderful man - and it's been going on for 18 years. My guy has changed diapers, stayed up nights with sick kids, helped me with the cooking, the marketing and the dishes. He took a part-time job when things were rough and never once have I had to worry about where he was or what he was doing. We've had our disagreements, of course, but we've never gone to bed mad. ] can't imagine life with anyone but this m#n. I feel like the luckiest woman in the world. - Big G - Little O DEAR BIG G.: Beautiful, Just beautiful. How sweet that you consider yourself a lucky girl. I assure you, though, that more than luck is involved when a marriage takes patience, maturity, self-is as happy as yours. It discipline, giving - and forgiving. Give my love to that lucky man. Strapless dress revived By BERNADINE MORRIS New York News Service NEW YORK - It burst upon the world in the lata 1930's. It flourished through the 1940's as le dernier cri for prom-goers and it survived into the 1950's. It was boned all around so it would stay up. The strapless dress. It was worn over a "merry widow," which was also boned and sometimes wired and padded too. The "merry widow" was an undergarment, a super-bra, that extended past the waist, nipping it firmly, covered the top of the hips and had long garters to attach to the stockings. And now it is coming back. The strapless dress, not necessarily the strapless bra. The 1973 version has undergone many changes from the strapless evening dress made famous by Brenda Frazier in 1938 when she was the debutante of the year. The bones have vanished. And most of the time, the bras as well. "It's possible to wear a bra Woman cares for birth defect babies Home investigation Rose Sherman sits on her bed to read the newspaper in a drab room at Lambert Lodge, a home for the aged owned by Metropolitan Toronto. A three - member committee of Toronto aldermen appointed to investigate conditions at the lodge, a converted factory built in 1913, reported that it was a dingy, depressing residence for the 590 elderly people living there. National feminist meeting WASHINGTON (AP) - Feminists have ended a national meeting where their founder urged them to take the sex revolution to men. Lesbians demanded their civil rights and delegates were told to transform rhetoric into action. It was well into the night when the National Organization of Women (N.O.W.) disbanded its sixth' convention with a march on the White House. The more than 2,000 delegates approved resolutions urging that prostitution laws be dropped, divorce laws be improved and child-care faculties be expanded. It was the largest meeting yet for the front-line feminist organization in the United States. At the outset, President Wilms Scott Heide said N.O.W. had to make the transition from on - paper strategies about changing society to actually doing it. LEADS BATTLE N.O.W. has been at the forefront of the effort to ratify the equal-rights amendment and has pioneered in improving the job situation for women, including winning $38 million payments for women employees allegedly discriminated against by the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. In the last two years, N.O.W. has established national committees in more than two dozen other areas in which the organization considers women at a disadvantage, from credit availability to university promotion and hiring habits to divorce laws to labor unions and religious institutions. N.O.W. founder Betty Friedan said the women's-liberation movement is so strong, it can afford to take care of all the unfinished business and to force the world to look at men "not as instruments, not as sex objects, not as bread-winners - but. as human beings, our brothers." The convention adopted a lesbian resolution calling on N.O.W. to support civil-rights legislation to "end discrimination based on sexual orientation, especially in the areas of housing, employment, credit and finance, child custody and public accommodations." ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) - "I'll walk by one of these children and all of a sudden he'll look up at me and smile," said Mrs. Stacy Smith,' 76. "That little smile makes it worth all the trouble and long hours and scratching to meet the bills." Mrs. Smith was talking about the home she 'runs for Children with birth defects. She cares for 54 children without public or foundation funds, handling 12 of them as charity cases and charging the parents of the( others a small boarding fee.' Churches and civic groups contribute occasional volunteer help, but most of the work is done by Mrs. Smith and a dozen non-professionals-friends and neighbors. The children, born with cerebral palsy, blindness or brain damage, are housed in Mrs. Smith's big brick home and two adjoining buildings. Mrs. Smith, a registered nurse, took in her first child more than 40 years ago- shortly after encephalitis left her adopted son severely retarded. HONORED BY CLUBS "That gave me a special feeling about these children," said Mrs. Smith, recently honored by local civic clubs as 1972 Woman of the Year. The children range in age from a few months to late teens. One boy lived with Mrs. Smith for 24 years before dying just before Christmas, 1971. Mrs. Smith was at his bedside when he died-"I promised myself a long time ago that I'd never let a baby die alone." The parents of the children range from wealthy professional people to impoverished laborers. Many of the children are brought to Mrs. Smith when they are only days old. She has never turned down a child because the parents could not afford to pay. "It makes it harder for us to take a child without any financial support," said Mrs. Smith. "But it would be harder to think about some little baby being abandoned somewhere." under them," said James Gal-anos, one of the' sponsors of the new strapless dresses. "But it mustn't be one of those boned uplifting things. The curve of the body should show." A good deal of the curve of the body does indeed show, especially when the fabric is clingy matte jersey, as it often is. Still, most designers do not envision their styles worn with bras. As Galanos explained tactfully, "there are two kinds of ladies: the fashionable ones who keep their figures trim so they can get into the new things that come along, and those who depend on undergarments." The current vogue for strapless dresses probably started with the young who kept their figures trim and wrapped a scarf around their body to serve as a blouse with their blue jeans. But the strapless top has now moved into the dressmaking salons, endorsed by such designers as Arnold Scaasi, who makes custom clothes; Oscar de la Renta, who sets trends in expensive ready - to - wear; Morty Sussman, who designs the less expensive boutique collection for Mollie Parnis; and Stephen Burrows, whose avant-garde styles are sponsored by Henri Bendel. The range is from terry cloth pool or beach dresses by Burrows to a strapless sequin top for pants by Scaasi. What they all have in com� mon this time around is elastic, not bones. The elastic is set at the top of the dress and the designers -and the models who have been wearing the clothes at the summer showings - are confident that it's enough to keep the dresses in place.
