Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-07,Lethbridge, Alberta Wedding refused by Soviet govH PALO ALTO, Calii. (AP) -Charlotte Daigle of Palo Atto, U.SJA., yearns to marry Boris Mul(liam«tshln of Moscow, U.S^.R.—and therein U«s the p^lem. “^e Soviet government wonU let us,’’ complains Charlotte. “The United States and the &viet Uoicm are supposed to ^ve detente. Welt, bow ahoift us?" The Soviet government. Ctiatlotte says, emphasized its feelings about the romance by kicking her out of the country last spring after a tough, official grilling during whidh they intimated she might be a spy. And now, she says, the Soviet Embassy has refused her a visa for another visit. Charlotte, 31, said her road to romance with Boris, also 31, is now paved with one official “nyet" after another, and though she gets discourag* ed she vows her labors of love will not be lost. “It doesn’t look good, hut I don’t intend to give up,” insisted the petite, brownhaired interviewer with the state employment agency.

A l2-stanza prose poem he wrote her last nuntb declares their “spiritual marriage” and protests: . ^ . “We divided, like Leningrad's bridges, \ by the river of tears and paii^ but all of this made us more determined, we won’t give up, as long as we live the wii\dstorm of Soviet' bureaucracy can’t break doiwn our spiritual marriage.1’    , The inteinational rofnance started when Boris sat^t her table in a Leningrad a|rport coffee shop in 1968. Charlotte was returning to the’U.S. through Russia after a^Uwo-year tour as a Peace Corps volunteer in Uganda. They talked for about an hour, then Charlotte got her plane and flew away. But in a daily diary she wrote, "Boris is a beautiful man.”    ^ LOVE BY MAIL    / Boris, a Muscovite sUu^ing architecture in Leningrad, repaid the compliment,and began a six-year love affair by mail that blossomed last April when Charlotte returned to Russia. “Boris and I twd a beautiful month together,” she said. “Then we appli^ to get married, and right aiyay 1 was asked to leave' the country. My visa was capcell-ed and I was called into the-In-tourist office. Four or five people questioned me in a very bad way. They kept accusing me of lying. Finally, they gave me three hours to leave the country.” . Charlotte, who speaks some Russian, said she is willing to live in the Soviet Union if that is the only way she can marry Boris, but she has repeatedly been refused a visa to return for any reason. Bowie among worst dressed LOS ANGELES (Reuter) — Los Angeles fashion designer Mr. Blackwell last week put Britain’s Princess Anne high on his annual worst dressed women’s list and said her wedding dress was “dreadful.” “That had to be the dumbest dress in the world ^from the ne^k to the hem,” / he said. ‘ ‘The only part that had any tone was the sleeves and that went out with Henry VII, and I don’t think she should have brought it back.” Blackwell, who has often put Queen Elizabeth on his list, said of Princess Anne: “She makes her mother the Queen look fashionable and that takes some doing.” Others on the Blackwell list were tennis star Billie Jean King, film actresses Raquel Welch and Liv Ullman, Jacqueline Onassis and, for the first time in many years, a man— British rock star David Bowie. Explaining why he had included Bowie, Blackwell said; “If they want to face the public in a woman’s image, they deserve to make a list of women.” Blackwell, who put Princess Anne in second place, gave first position to eccentric nightclub Singer Bette Midler whose clothes, he said, lodted like she took “potluck in a laundromat." lost instructions others on the list were BriUsh actress Sarah Miles (“she bought her wardrobe in a blackout”), actress Elke Sommer (“a do-it-yourself kit with the wrong instructions”) and the two surviving members of the ^drews sisters who now are making a return to show business in a broadway musical. Of Princess Anne he said: “I do not know who is dressing her. I think she gets her clothes on sale someplace.” Blackwell said the British Royal Family had been making his list “ever since it has been around. ’ ’ "Someone has to tell them Hartnell i£ finished as a favor to the Queen.” On the fashion side Blackwell strongly criticized platform shoes. “All women seem to walk like crippled ducks on~ them. Hiey should be outlawed.” Monday, January 7, 1974 - THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD -15 Pinto-pounders fined $1 a swing PICO RIVERA. Calii. -to Anaheim man, with the help of about SO other perwos, has beaten his horseleii carri^ to death on Ford Motor Co. property. “I had to do it," said Roger Sweitzer, alter he and members of the Outraged Consumers Action Committee pountM Sweltzer’s 1972 Pinto automobile into little more than a pile of scrap Tuesday. They used hammers, axes, crowbars and clubs. The committee is a loosely-oiganized group of Southern CtOifoniia car owners formed by the owner of a Lincohi Continental who burned his car in protest here two years ago. Sweitzer said a wide variety of mechanical problems began popping up in the car almost from the first day he brought it home. “It’s been dying by inches ever since I got it,” Sweitzer said. “I would rather put it out “iffi of its misery and kill it before it kills me or someone else. ’' The beating took place on the grounds of Ford’s assem-plant here, ut 10 minutes after the dismantling began, sheriff's de[Hities ordered the Pinto-pounders to disperse. Sweitzer, who charged each person 91 a swing, plans to use the money he collected to help pay for his new mode of transportation, a bicycle. FIND!NG FAKE FABRICS OTTAWA (CPJ - The difference between a genuine velvet or suede and a flocked fabric can easily be determined by checking the backing which is usually a knitted cotton fabric on the synthetic material, advises the Consumers' Association of Canada. Such garments should be guaranteed dry-cleanable without any loss of adhesive or surface finish. IT’S NEW! EVERY TUESDAY ON 9th AVENUE a.

We are expecting another child in eight weeks. This morning my father came over with a oeautiful present for us, a lovely three-and-a-half-pound roast. I decided to prepare it in advance and serve it for dinner tonight. I was really excited because we haven’t had any beef for quite a while. At 4 o’clock the roast was finished so I took it out of the oven and put it on the sideboard. It looked so tempting I decided to take a little taste to see if the seasoning was right. Well, Ann, 1 can’t explain what happened to me but it’s like I went berserk. I couldn’t stop eating. I ate the whole roast. Afterwards 1 felt so guilty I nearly cried. I felt like a rat when I was preparing the substitute dinner, a tuna casservjle with noodles, t was so ashamed of myself I just couldn't tell my husband what happened.

'Then they become compulsive about devouring large quantities of it. They just can’t eating. This is probably what happened to you. Don’t prepare any more roasts "in advance” until your baby is bom. Dear Ann Landen: Here’s a tardy but relevant response to that Canadian reader who was fed up with Americans who don’t know one thing about Canada. (He said “the further south 1 went the more ifr norant U.S. citizens xrt^) Please tell our neighbor to the north to think nothing of It. I live in the Padiic Northwest and you wouldn’t believe the ^htnga New YOrkers, Texans and lowans have said to me. Here are some examples: “You have electricity and plumbing! Isn’t that wonderful! How long have you had it?" “We brought our fur coats and parkas (it was June) because we didn’t think you had any summer this far north! The weather is beautiful! How come?” “Do the Indians give you much trouble?” So please be aware, Miss Landers, that ignorance Is not a matter of geography. There are plenty of Americans who don’t know anything about their own country, much less Canada. What’s more, all the ignoramuses 'aren’t in the ^utb. — Pacific Northwest Revisited Dear P.M.; Well said. I agree. Dear Ann Landers: I’m a security guard in the Kansas City airport and I have a message for everyone who travels by plane. Please don’t bring gift-wrapped packages aboard, or boxes that are taf^ shut or tied with knotted strings or ribbons. We have to tear off the gift-wrappings and cut the ribbons and strini». A lot of folks get mad at us. They act as if we do it to be ornery, but we must inspect every package because those are the rules. Furthermore, we do it for their protection. We want to provide them with as much safety as possible. After all, THEY are going to board the plane, we aren’t going anybplace.
