There were no "teen-agers." (That word was invented 30 years ago.) The transition from childhood to adulthood was not made easy with fads and fun. Young apprentices worked a 48-hour week for a modest sum and when they finished they had a life- time trade. Today's youth has been petted, pampered, plied with toys, bikes, transistors, cars, boutique fashions and spending mon- ey. They are overschooled and underworked. Despite the boom that resounds from nationwide rock festivals, they are gross- ly out of tune. They know little of good music or litera- ture or poetry. Their enemy is not the hard-core wealth of the very rich, but the bountiful payeheque of the middle-class. They wallow in sugar and spice and everything thrice. When the fun of youHi fades and the years pile up, when todulgent parents are gone, what resources will be theirs? What inner strength to draw on in time of crises? What gifts to give the world? What legacy to leave to those yet un- born? True, elders have criticized "hopeless, frivolous" youth throughout the ages, and the world has gone on, but has toy generation ever had so much for so little, in a world lived in by so Musty Reader DEAR MUSTY: You raise some provocative questions. Does anyone out there have answers? I'd like to see them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Today it seems almost everyone in our social crowd is getting divorced and remarried. Most of the marriages involve children his and hers. Let's face it, it's difficult to know how far a step-parent should go in disciplining a child who is present weekends only or for two weeks in the summer. Furthermore, if "she" has children and "he" has children there is bound to be fighting, and woe be unto the stepmother or stepfather who bops in on the side of his own. This is a second marriage for bolh of us and I am keeping my fingers crossed. The only thing we fight about is our children and the fights are getting more hurtful. How I wish we had resolved the questions regarding the Mds be- fore we decided to marry. We would have saved ourselves a tot of grief. Please print this letter for divorced people with children who are considering remarriage. It could prevent a second divorce.

The decision was made re- cently at the committee's first annual meeting and followed earlier suggestions that the or- ganization disband because of a lack of financial support. The committee, set up to chart the course of government response to the Royal Commis- sion Report on the Status of Wo- men, had a deficit of for the nine months ending last Dec. 31. Committee chairman Mrs. June Menzies said the commit- tee had been refused a grant from the provincial government and denied a request for tax exemptions for contributors by the federal government. The committee's revenues of for the nine month period came almost exclusively from donations by individuals and or- ganizations. Expenditures to- talled of this being spent on printing costs and paration of briefs to govern- ment. Mrs. Menzies said one of ths organization's concerns this year will be the Manitoba emment's re introduction of succession duties on estates passing from husband to wife. Such a tax does not recog- nize the partnership of mar- riage, casting the woman in the role of a dependent or child, she said. The committee will "have to fight this out." Former city police chief writing history of force Dy GREG McINTYRE Staff Writer Lethbridgc was still a hot bed of prostitution, gambling and bootlegging when former police chief Jim Carpenter joined the city force as a per month constable in 1940. Mr. Carpenter, 60, chief of police from 1957 to 1971, told the local branch of the Histori- cal Society of Alberta he is writing a book on the history of the city force, to be printed this fall. One of the more hair-raising incidents involved the city's only tar and feathering case. About 14 Lethbridge residents took the victim, Jarnes Ronald at gun point in the middle of the night, Feb. 13, 1B95, tarred and feathered him and hung him by the nock from a tree. Ronald was accused of hav- ing an affair with the wife of a Mr. Willis1 who shot himself dead earlier the same nighl, apparently in grief over his wife's infidelity. The onlv one of the 14 taken intc custody, for the killing of Ronald was a pistol packing American named Charles War- ren, who later fled across the border. Mr. Carpenter said the police received little help in their In- vestig a t i o n of the vigilante lynching since most of the townspeople considered the kill- ing "poetic justice." In lie early 1940's there was still a flourishing underground in a community with a popula- tion of he said. Lethbridge was served by about 15 poker joints, nine ma- jor whore houses and the same number of Chinese gambling places, and six well known bootlegging outlets. The bawdy houses "served a real purpose" said the former police chief, since the early west was populated with large numbers of single men. The girls, for the most part, well bred ladles, tilent- ed In cards and piano playing "who could rub shoulders witi the best of them." "The bootlegging wasn't as bad as you might said Mr. Carpenter. "Most of the vendors closed about 10 o'clock. Sundays, things were closed and you had to have something to do when you sat around and talked." The end of large scale ille- gal liquor sales came quickly when the city got the provin- cial government to change reg- ulations to allow legal to stay open until midnight, he said. Mr. Carpenter said when or- ders were given to close down, the Chinese gambling houses, the nine operators in town made an unsuccessful attempt to bribe the police. "After the first conviction a delegation arrived in my office and offered a week each if I agreed not to give evidencp against them in court. "Needless to say it was a bit of a temptation, since I was making a month at the time and a week was pretty nearly twice the salary I was getting from the city." Putting the whore houses out of business was a simple mat- ter of informing patrons as they Volunteer honored MONTREAL (CP) Mrs. J. Cecil McDougall of Montreal, who worked in French hospitals as a volunteer aid during the First World War and went on to found provincial and interna- tional associations to stlmuate anW co-ordinate hospital volun-' teer programs, has received the Order of Canada service medal and a special citation from CARE of Canada for "service o[ great importance to the family of mankind." approached that the place would be raided by the police if they went in, lie said. lendar or L oca I nappemntjJ The Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens Society Ladies Auxiliary will meet Friday at 2 p.m. in Gym 2 o! the Civic Sports Centre.
