The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: What should a person do if he is dining in the home of a friend and he comes upon a foreign substance in the food like, shall we say, a hairpin in the souffle? This happened to me recently and I said nothing, but it could have been a serious thing. Yesterday, I had a similar experience, only it was a worm in a fresh peach which had been sliced and served over ice cream. I was speak- ing to the hostess when I notic- ed it. I kept my wits about me, continued to talk, and ate around the worm. If such a thing happens again what should be done? Do you feel the hostess would want to know? Lost My Appetite Dear Lost: Anyone who can eat around a worm and carry on a conversation with .the hostess at the same time doesn't need advice from Ann Landers. I don't think the hostess would "want to know." Keep quiet, honey. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell me to divorce him before I lose my mind. My first marriage was a disaster. I was only IS and didn't know what I was getting into. I somehow managed to finish nurse's training and support myself. After being divorced only six months I married David, a smooth-talking, handsome alcoholic. (I didn't know it then but I should have recognized the That was six years ago and my life has been hell ever since. I am 31 years old and look at least 40. I scream at my children and can't be civil to friends. David has had four car accidents, two of them totals. Our car insurance has been cancelled. We've been separated 14 times. I've caught him with terrible women, tramps he picks up in bars. I'm on needles and pins whenever he is around my family, afraid he'll insult somebody and start a fight. David is on a bender now but he'll call in a few days and THE BETTER HALF ask me to take him back. Of course, I will. For some strange reason I still love him. I must be as sick as be is. Please, Ann, say something to convince me that I'm better off without him. OMer Thai My Years Dear Friend: In the first sentence of your letter, you ask me to tell you to divorce him. But you don't really want to divorce him or you'd have done it. The crux of your problem is expressed in the fourth sentence of your last paragraph. When you're well enough to give up the punishment, you'll split for good. Dear Ann Landers: I'm a 17- year-old guy who needs to know what to do. Right now I'm hurt, mad, insulted and mixed up. This is my story. I just phoned a girl I like a lot. We've dated some not much, but I thought she liked me. When I asked her if I could come over after supper she said, "Wait a minute." She thought she had the mouthpiece of the phone covered and I heard her say, "How can I get rid of this creep? He wants to come over and I don't want him to." Then she came back on and said, "I'm sorry but I have to go someplace with my folks." I can't avoid this, bird because we are in several classes together and have the same friends. How should I act? Should I let her know I heard what she said? Dou- bt? Ears Dear D. E.: Act natural. Don't let on that you heard her. Now that you know how she really feels, keep your dis- tance and turn your attentions elsewhere. A no-nonsense approach to how to deal with life's most difficult and most rewarding arrangement.

Further information may be obtained by contacting Bob Baunton, Playgoers business manager. Abortion trauma disproved by study New York Times Service NEW YORK A study of the psychological effects of abortion, in which women un- dergoing abortions were com- pared before and after with women having babies, has shown that abortion is no more traumatic and may be less so than giving birth. The authors of the study, Who were all at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Centre for social studies in human reproduction at Baltimore when it was done, concluded that they "strained at a camel and swallowed a gnat" in look- ing for differences between the groups of patients studied. The "few differences" they found indicate that an early abortion by suction may be "more therapeutic than carrying a pregnancy to the authors added in a report published in the current issue of Family Planning Perspectives. The .findings run counter to the long-standing myth that women undergoing abortion often suffer long-term psy- chological consequences. But the results support previous, less precise findings of earlier Bridge Rug Drapes Ltd.

Earlier studies either failed to measure the women's psy- chological state both before and after the abortion or did not compare abortion with having a baby. In the Johns Hopkins study, women scheduled to undergo an early abortion by suction, late abortion by salting-cut and full-term birth (38 in each group) were matched for socio-economic status, number of living children, age, race and marital status. Before the medical procedure each woman was interviewed for an hour and a half and each took tests to measure her sense of social integration and self-esteem. Thirteen to 16 months after the abortion or birth, the women were re-interviewed and re-tested. The follow-up tests also included a per- sonality inventory and a test of psychosomatic symptoms. In the follow-up study, patients giving birth scored somewhat higher on the "paranoia" measure than the abortion patients. Women who underwent suction abortion had fewer psychosomatic complaints afterward than either those who had a late abortion or those who had a baby. But there were no differences among the groups either before or after the procedures in measures of their sense of social integra- tion or self-esteem. Nor did any of the procedures make any difference in the women's sexual practices, attitudes and enjoyment, in the marital happiness or relations with their parents.

Gene mutation aids pest control VANCOUVER (CP) war against insects may be won by tinkering with their genes to produce such mu- tants as bugs that can't bite or tsetse flies that don't carry steeping sickness. It's au part of the science of genetics, the selective breeding of life to eliminate certain characteristics or reinforce certain others, and a group of University of British Columbia scientists say genetics offer the best answer to insect problems. Malcolm Fitz-Earle, one of the scientists, said in an inter- view the future of genetic re- search is almost limitless, of- fering nope of elimination or careful management of insect pests. Agricultural pests contrib- uting nothing to the food cycle of larger animals could be eliminated, or could have their numbers reduced to manageable proportions, for example, Dr. Fitz-Earle said. Mosquitoes or blackflies could be bred so they would bite but not cause a blemish, while disease-carrying insects could be replaced by disease- free varieties. "We're working to produce characteristics in insects fa- vorable to man's said Dr. Fitz-Earle. "The conventional chemical techniques of controlling in- sects have numerous weak- nesses, the most notable being that insects build up a resistance and the chemicals have an unfavorable effect on the environment." GENETICS KEY He said genetic control ap- pears to have no undesirable side effects, but cautioned that research still is rela- tively new and there's no guarantee side effects may not emerge later. "That's why I hesitate to emphasize eradication of in- Dr. Fitz-Earle said. "Rather, we propose bringing insect populations down to a tolerable economic level. "You can never be certain that an insect which appeared to have no effect on the food cycle, for example, might not have some purpose we haven't Jiscovered." Research in genetics has centred on two areas, be said, with the first focussing on in- sects which are vital to the balance of nature but have characteristics such as biting which are bothersome to man. "You take your target pests and replace them with cous- ins developed in the labora- tory which have different Dr. Fitz- Earle explained. "By flooding the laboratory insects into the population, you eventually produce your iesired characteristics gener- ally and replace the undesi- rable ones." NOW women cheer divorce resolution NEW YORK (Reuter) The National Organization for Women (N.O.W.) wants to change the image of the di- vorced the in- jured party to the activist de- manding laws for marriage contracts and divorce in- surance. About cheered a suggestion by Betty Friedan, one of the founders of the women's liberation movement and N.O.W., to es- tablish divorce centres. These would provide information about marital lawyers and court proceedings, have private investigators, psy- chiatric help to assist women in adjusting to the break-up and divorce and marriage counselling. The divorce rate in the United States has soared, es- pecially in the last five years, not so much because of the women's movement but because "traditional sex roles are truly obsolete and can only result in dead-end she said. Resolutions passed during the weekend meeting would make it as difficult to get married as it is to get divorced. The resolutions also would make it obligatory for engag- ed couples to get insurance paying for emotional and career rehabilitation for divorcing spouses, allow for private marriage contracts, for equal distribution of spouses' earnings, recognize children as people rather than property, and make uniform state laws on divorce so that a husband cannot escape to a state with more liberal statutes. The conference called for an end to discrimination against divorced, single, or homosex- ual people who have chosen alternate life-styles to the traditional marriage. He said the other area of research concerns pests which eat agricultural pro- but don't add to the food chain. "In this area, it's fair game to introduce a temperature- sensitive lethal factor. The in- sects can survive in the spring, for example, but as the temperature goes up in the summer, they're wiped out. It's a time-bomb effect." Although man could theo- retically control the insect world through genetics, Dr. Fitz-Earle said, it involves an "incredible" amount of work to reach that stage. "It may take two to 10 years or more. It's really im- possible to make an accurate estimate." One factor holding up re- search is the unwillingness of most world governments, with the exception of the United States and Australia, to finance genetic research. "I suspect they're largely ignorant of what we're trying to the UBC researcher said. PUBLIC BINQO (Ptaycd Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM EVERY THUBS.-8 P.M.
