Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Three years ago I met a girl at work. She was separated from her husband. We fell in love. When she became pregnant I wanted to marry her but she decided to go back to her husband. She had twins and I was proud as can be. The twins are the smartest and cutest little boys I've ever seen. I hope you won't think I am conceited when I tell you they look exactly like me. I want to marry this girl and raise the boys more than anything in the world. The trouble is the girl's husband - he likes the kids very much, too. Last night I begged her fa> reconsider. She told1 me to get lost and stop pestering her. What are my rights? These boys are mine. I am willing to fight for them in court if I have to. Aren't there laws for people like me? - Bobbed DEAR ROBBED: Yes, there are taws - but they read like this, Bub: Children born to a woman who is married belong, legally, to her husband. Since you seem to be so freaked out over kids, why don't you find a nice single girl and marry her and leave this woman alone? Take her advice. Get lost. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm 28. My girl is 24. We've been officially engaged for six years. She is my first serious sweetheart and I am hers. About a year ago she started to leave her engagement ring at home. When I asked why she said she was allergic to the metal. So I had the stone reset in platinum instead of gold. Three months ago she started not to wear her ring again. This time she said it bothered her when she typed. Last week she asked if I'd mind if she had a date with the personnel manager. I said, "Of course I'd mind." She has gone into one of her three-day sulks and I am getting fed up an her moodiness. What is your advice? - Pushing 30 DEAR PUSH: Set the prisoner free. She's beginning to suspect the world is not bound on the north, south, east and west by you. Take back the ring and tell her to date anybody she wants to. And you should do the same. You two may wind up together yet, but you need to see some new faces. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a 30-year-old homosexual. Actually, I think "closet queen" is the name applied to people like me. I play it straight in order to protect my career. No one would guess in a hundred years. My problem is that I am lonely. I avoid close friendships with girls because I hate to be unfair. I don't feel comfortable enough with most men to be "one of the boys". I have no contact with other homosexuals, in fact I avoid being friendly with the flagrant types for fear of being linked with them. I would never hang around a gym or gay bar. What happens to people like me? Do we just accept the fact that we must go through life lonely? Can you help us? - Gay But Not Happy DEAR FRIEND: I have been told that perceptive homosexuals have a built-in radar system when it conies to sensing the presence of their own kind. I believe this is true. The signals may be ever so faint, but they are discernible to one who is alert. The attitudes toward homosexuals in our country are changing. They are no longer considered criminals in some states. I say it's high time we emerged from the Dark Ages. Perhaps you would be happier in a larger city where the tendency to consider homosexuals freaks, is not so great Give in or lose him . . . when a guy gives you this line, look out!

Enters 65 names TABiSR (HNS) - Taber's new recreational complex will be officially opened Tuesday, Dec. 29, but it will go without cliristening. A "name the complex" competition recently concluded produced no name acceptable to the local recreation board, though a committee of three un-named judges came up with a recommendation from the 101 entries submitted. Noting that 65 of the names submitted were from one person, the committee felt that the conditions of the contest were not followed, in that suggestions should be shown separately along with reasons for the name. A further consideration of an official name will be given by the recreation board after the rush of the year-end activities is over. love is... ... keeping bis base' ball uniform clean.
