Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Saturday, February XT, 1971 - THE LETHBRTDGE HERA 10 - X? DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a freak. I don't drink. I have nothing against alcohol. I just don't happen to like tire taste or smell of it. I admit that when I see some awfully nice people drink more than they can handle, it makes me glad I don't care for the stuff. But the thing that really bugs me is the way drinkers keep trying to push drinks on a perscn who has said he doesn't want one. You can't believe the gimmicks they use. "Drink to my health--" and "Hold the glass so the others won't feci uncomfortable--" or "Just taste it." The rum drinkers tell you how mild rum is and in half an hour they are passed out in a corner. The scotch drinkers tell you how they never get sick because they stick to scotch. I've seen them turn green around the gills and disappear for the night. The wine drinkers are a sketch. They think because it's wine and not gin they appear elegant. But they all get equally sloppy and talk the same kind of foolishness when they are bombed. Can you supply me with a snappy retort for people who keep pressing me to have a drink? My mind is made up but I need a witty comeback.-Dry D. DEAR DRY: A sober person who would bullyrag you to have a drink is an insensitive boor and doesn't deserve an answer. A drunk wouldn't know a witty comeback or a snappy retort if he heard one so why bother? * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am writing about a problem that has caused me a great deal of anxiety. First a bit of background: My husband is a successful businessman. We have many friends in professional, political and executive positions. Our two daughters are college graduates and they both married well. We have all traveled extensively and arc highly regarded in this community. I am writing about my sister. She has always had a horrible fear of doctors and dentists. Her teeth arc in dreadful condition. I'm sure she hasn't been to a dentist in 25 years. Several of her front teeth are missing. The remaining teeth are decayed. My sister has been writing and hinting that she would love to come to visit us for a week or so. (We moved to this lovely little community in 1969 and she is eager to see it.) I'm beginning to feel guilty about not having her here. She's on my mind constantly and I'm getting headaches. After all, she is my only sister and she won't live forever. I've been evading the issue because I'm ashamed of the way she looks. Please tell me what to do. -Palm Beach, Fla. DEAR BEACH: The guilt is getting to you, Doll, so my advice is invite her - not for her sake, but for yours. So you won't accept any invitations that week from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor or Howard Hughes or Mrs. Merriweather Post. They'll forgive you. And if, by chance, you should run into some of your fancy friends while your sister is visiting, I can assure you they will not hold the condition of her teeth against you.

OTTAWA (CP) - Canadian Roman Catholic bishops announced that a special "respect-for-life" day, mainly directed against abortion, has been set for April 25. Archibishop Joseph-Aurele Plourde of Ottawa, president of the Canadian Catholic Conference of Bishops, told a news conference that the day will be A FORUM ABOUT MATURE WOMEN Dear Margaret Brookfield: 1 have become very nervous and irritable lately, cranky with everyone and ready sometimes to jump out of my skin. I've always had a pretty easygoing disposition so 1 can't understand what's happening to me. Sometimes I wonder if I'm losing my mind. S.G., Lihue, Hawaii Dear S.G.: Any number of factors might be involved, ranging from personal problems to the state of the world, Also, you don't say how old you are. If, for example, you're between 40 and 50, your symptoms might be connected with the menopause. Nervousness and irritability are often characteristic of this time of change. Why not see your doctor? If your problem is menopausal, ho might suggest estrogen therapy as many physicians now do, to alleviate such symptoms and improve your sense of well-being. Go see him soon and talk it all over with him. He'll know what to do. Dear Margaret Brookfield: Ever since my children became old enough to attend school. I've had a part-time office job. Recently they offered me a full-time job as a supervisor. So far, so good. But the problem is, if I accept tliis job I'll lx! earning more than my husband. I'm afraid of how this might affect him and our marriage. 1 haven't told him about the offer yet became I don't know how to approach the problem. Please advise. M.S., Clarion, Pa. Dear M.S.. If you want that job, why not, discuss it with your husband? If he accepted the idea of your working to begin with, the transition to full-time employment should not be too difficult. Also, if you can prepare hini and the children for any changes in household routine so they '"know what to expect, chances are they'll rally 'round and help out. The real problem, as you are well aware, is not to undermine your husband's concept of himself as the breadwinner. In discussing the offer with him, you might point out the "subsidiary advantages" of the salary increase to the family as a whole in terms of paying off the mortgage sooner, putting aside college tuition for the kids, being able to travel more at vacation time, etc. The position of supervisor requires tact and diplomacy, so practice thos� traits on a delicate matter like tliis one.

The archbishop said that in coming years the emphasis may be on other aspects of life, such as the growing problem of pollution. The bishops have also decided to meet with women church members to discuss such issues as tlie recent report of the Royal Commission on tlie Status of Women, he said. Women's groups in Edmonton and Toronto had asked for such a meeting.
