Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is for the woman wo signed herself "A Loser." She said. "Old people can go to a home. Sick people can go to a hospital. Drug addicts can go to a treatment center. But where do unwanted wives Well, I can tell her. After making sure your house is clean, the meals are pre- pared, the washing and ironing and mending is dons go take a nice, long walk. Enjoy the beauties of nature. Get sorte eiercise. Then go deink 'several glasses of water. You'll eat less and it Kill help to keep your down. Go to the library and learn something. There are thous- ands of books there about subjects you've never heard of. And it's free. Go look around your neighborhood and see if there's a tired mother with a home full of kids who would just love an afternoon a veek off. Go to church. God will listen to you anytime. Go to the nearest children's hospital and ask if they'd like someone to read to the children. Go to a veteran's hospital. Tnere are lonesome men in there who neet someone to write letters for them, or do errands. There are so many places you can go if you really irant to. Or would you raier sit around feeling sorry for yourself? It Works DEAH IT: Thanks for some common-sense advice. The trouble is, too many people would rather sit around and feel sorry for themselves. DEAH AXN" LANDERS: Our daughter who just turned 16 is four months pregnant. I noticed Nancy was getting heavy and asked her several times if she had anything to tell me. She said no, so I took her word for it. Tne fadier of Nancy's child is a terrible kid who is only 17 and has been sneaking around with her although my hus- band has told him repeatedly to stay off our property. The boy's parents are decent people but they never could manage this boy. He has two older brothers who are fine. No trouble. Nancy wants to get married and keep the baby. Tiie boy says he v.ill many her if he has to but he has one more year ot high school and would rather not Also he says he has another girl in Buffalo be likes and she might be pregnant. He isn't sure. My husband is fit to be tied. He says this rat is going to marry Nancy no ends or buis. He wants to know if there is a law that can force this marrige if boih parents are in favor of it. Niagara Falls Trouble DEAR N.G.: There is no such law. and even if there were, why in the world would your husband want his daugh- ter to get stuck with a ratn My advice is to contact a home for unwed mothers. Your daughter does DO; sound as if she is ready for motherhood. The baby deserves a better break. These days adopted chil- dren are very hard- :o come by az-d thousands of eager couples are waiting to give a child a loving home. DEAR ANN LANDERS: That letter from the girl who was raped when she fooiishly accepted a ride on the highway with a stranger, made me sit down and write to you even though it's a.m. 1 am not an old fogy and I'm not a prude. I'm 34 years old, a former model, now the mother of rwo little girls. When I see whai has happened to so-called fashions I am Dot sur- prised thai rape in the Vnited Sutes is at an all-time high- Anyone who wants to check the figures will see the unmis- takable correlation between rape and the advent of mini- skirts, the braless craie. ihe body-stocking look, hot pants, see-through blouses, and necklines slashed to the. navel. Some of the girls dress in such a provocative manner that they look as if they are advertising their bodies for sale or rent. It's no wonder they are victims of assault. Com- ment please. Eye Sore DEAR EYE: It is much too simplistic to infer that rape is the result of scanty or provocative attire. The criminolo- gists do no: support that thecry. I sgree. however, that current modes of dress, both male and female, do reflect the drastic change in society's sexual attitudes. And interestingly enough, the hemlines also re'Ject the economic trends. When hems go up so does the slrckmarket! DEAR ANN LANDERS: When you read this letter you'll probably say. ''A kid who doesn't have any- thing more to worry about is pretty But my prob- lem is buggin me like crary. I can't grow sideburns I've been trying to shsve for two years but there's hardly anything to lake off. Tne only spot on my face that really grows hair is my chin. I envy the guys witii busfoy mutton- chops. Some dudes my ?.ge even have beards. Is there any- thing I can do to help things along, like take shots or pills? Once a wro'.e to you about a certain medication that made hair gro-.v on her face. Maybe I should be taking it. I need advice. Hairless DEAR HAIRLESS: the fact that same guys just can't grow Sideburns and you're one of them. This whole bairy scene is a fad and it will pass. When it does, you'll be one of the lucky guys who won't have to spend much time sharing. Wednmioy, Januory 54, 1975 TH[ LETVSKIDCF HfKMB 23 Lord Elgin visits Tne llth Earl of Elgin, great-grandson of the gov. ernor-general of the Province of Ontario and 1847-1854, dances Ihe eightsome with Mrs. Thomas Price during a recent visit to Montreal. The visit by Lord Elgin brought bock memories of demon- strations in against ths governor-general and an altack on the Parliament Buildings, then located in Mon- treal. (CP Phofo) leaders fear Lavell ruling By STUART LAKE OTTAWA (CPj Jeannetfe Lsvell's fight to retain her In- dian status will be opDOsed by organizations representing Can- ada's 325.000 Treaty Indians. The groups will join with the i federal government in the Su- preme Court of Canada in April in arguing the validity of a sec- tion of tire Indian Act which says Indian who marry white men automatically lose their Indian status. The act also states that In- j dian men who marry white women remain Indians under i the act and that their wives and children also are entitled to Indian status. It was on the grounds that the i Act d i s c r i m i n ates af ainst j women con Iran' to tie Bill of j Rights that the Federal Court ruled that Mrs. Lavell remain- i ed an Indian under the law de- spite her marriage. Since the Federal court rul- ing, the Indian affairs branch has suspended it's pr a c tice of taking off the rolls Indian wom- en who married white men. The branch esil.maies that about 6.- j 000 women ar.d their children have benefiied so far from the ruling. The Lavell ruling has caused astir among Indian leaders who fear that it wiil open their reserves to a flood of whites. j Another of iis byproducts could be the need ot a bigger budget for the Indian affairs branch." In tho Supreme Court re- cently. Judge' Ron-Id Msrtknd agreed to allow 10 Indian organ- izations to present arguments wiien the appeal is heard. t The organisations are the Na- tional Indian Brotherhood, the Manitoba. Yukon and Northwest Temtones brotherhoods, the Six N a t i o n s Band of Indians, the Indian Federation of Alber- ta, the FederatioD of Saskatch- ewan Indians, the Indian Asso- ciation of Quebec, the rnioti of Ontario Indians, the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs, the U n i o n of New Brunswick Indians and the Union of Nova Scotia Indians. A number of groups also want to side with Mrs. Lavell but the judge allowed only the appli- cation of Mrs. Hose Wilhelm of Woodstock, Ont.. to intervene. Mrs. Wilhelm lost her Indian status when she married a white. Judge Martland reserved his decision on applications from the Alberta Committee on Ln- dian Rights for Indian Women. fie Edmonton Business and Canadian Federation of Univer- sity Women and the Manitoba Action Committee on the Status of Women. These groups want to present arguments in court backing Mrs. Laveh. Indian groups opposing Mrs. Lavell t a k e the position that Parliament only should make changes in the Indian Act. One of the proposed changes in the 196S and 1969 con- sultations between the govern- ment and the Indians was that Indians decide v.t.o is entitled to Indian status. Tne proposed change alone with others remains in bo while Indians research their treati- ar.d land claims. -Xr L-atcndar cJ-crn BURNS TEA and CONCERT THURSDAY, JANUARY 25th of First United Church 5lh Avenue 13th Street North SCOTTISH FOOD, MUSIC AND A FEATURED SPEAKER FINAL DAYS OF BENEFIT SHOES JANUARY CLEARANCE "Amalfi" Sh0fl liBM OFF Red Carpet 4A ond AA only Poir 4.00 Oddment Table e, _ 4 AAA and AA.
