Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdnetday, January 17, THE LETHBRIDGE HFRALB 21 Ann Landers DEAR AXN LANDERS: Inasmuch as the most persistent source of your seems to be from the short leg of the matrimonial triangle. I would lite to propose the following theorem: The rsiio of spouses unfaithful U> the marriage contract by the oven act of commission is directly proportional to the cumber of spouses unfaithful to the marriage contract by the covert act of ommissicr.. Lei me stan list o; "covert acts" by giving you an example. 1. Passive submission is ihs nest thing to being out of town. It does nothing for 2. Sex with a profit motive is prost-iution. I know because I'm there now. Overr Srouse Bui Not By Choice DEAR OVERT: Your Theorem, translated into ninth grade is. 1. Husbands who chest do so because their wives are dead from the reck both way? 2. If B man has to offer his wife a special bonus for bestonine her sexual favors, she is nothing more than a pros- titute. Your signature suggest that vou are geuizg sex on the outside because the home-grou-n variety is unsatisfactory. No one can judge the merits of a relationship ex- cept the individuals involved. But this I can tell you. Buster. some men would nuher eat garbage in a restaurant than a wholesome meal st home. Why? Don't ask me. It's one of those mysteries with a thousand answers depending on who is doing the answering. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You are a prude and it What's this hanc-up you have about words anyway? Cou should have outgrow ii long ago. I was surprised to see you admit in pnnL that ceriain make you uncomfortable. I kno'.v some very rich and socially prominent people who consider themselves refined and highly cultivated but they use words lie "nigger" and as part of their daily vocab- ularies. It comes ES Datura] to them as breathing. Yet when some hippie who truly loves humanity and considers all of manl-dr-d his brother uses a four-letter the men stiffen up like ramrods th-c have io be revived with sme-'dng salts. I'd rather hear four-Ir.ier wc-ros from a hip-pie any day than lisien to a bigot his prejudices. Wouldn't you, Ann Ii Fon Laucerdale DEAR W.: says I have to choosa between frro mis- erable alternatives: I both.

Ke asked you to help persuade his friend to let him move out of his parents7 home into his place. The friend balked on the grounds that two single guys living together might just as well post a sign, "We are gay." Your advice was "You have all the problems you can handle. Don't add another by trying Io move in nilh an unenihusiastic roommate. Get a place of your I heartily agree the young man should fid a place of his own, but I lake issue with your assumption that a homo- sexual is automatically burdened with problems just because he is gay. Come on, Ann, do you realiy believe that? Homosexuals are no unhappier than anyone else. True, our lives aren't all peaches and cream, but then whose is? I hope you will disabuse the public of the old mytti that homosexuals are wretched and miserable. Please help tear another wall c; isnoranrje. Reader DEAR AV.: It is foolish to make a statement that all members of ANT group are one way or another. Groups are made up of individuals and each individual is different. I do not aeree with yo'jr statement that as a group, homo- sexuals are no unhaupier than others. My mail reflects the opposite. And don't rail ms rcy mail comes from the troubled, the unbalanced or the lunatic fringe. I hear from everybody. Some homosexuals are content with their lot, but most of them would be straight if they had a choice. The most poorly-adjusted homosexuals are tie closet queens who have a crippuEE fear of teing found out. The anxiety and conflict in their lives are hideous. The saddest oi all are the homo- sexuals who have been read off by their families. They feel abandoned, despised and their name is legion.

Until last fall, her chances of becoming self-supporting and making a r.e'tv life fcr herself were But all that has charged. Susan has found a way off the long staircase that leads no- where. A caiied Contem- porary Woman helped Sdsan and other? iike her realize in- dependence. The course began three years ago in Calgary. It was geared to middle-class vomeji whose, marriages were but who felt they weren't get- ting enough ou: of life. Last fall the course was re- structured and offered on a limiied basis to wel- fare recipients who are wid- owed, separated or divorced. They are single parents who have been thrust into a com- petitive job marke; for which they are unprepared. They are women who would like to be independent b u t who. through circumstances, have been forced to seek welfare assistance. The eight-week pilot course. which began in October, was co-sponsored by the adult edu- cation division of the Calgary, school beard, the student counselling services at the Urm ersity of Calgary, and the Alberta development Encently, of the 14 who the course, one had dropped out. two have jobs, one had a job opportunity, six were seeking job training, three were JM hunting, and one remained at home be- cause she had a severe prob- lem with a teen-aged child. Susan plans to obtain a do- it-yourself divorce and return to school. She wants to be a social worker some dav. HOPE RESTORED "The thing I liked best about the course the thing that helped me most was the group support." she said. "1 was in a rut. My husband left me five years ago and I was trying to be a father and mother to my chillren. "1 couldn't, but I tried. ''My world was that house. I was all the time.'1 she said.
