Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE BETTER HALF By Bob Banrn bills and rwo letters. ..How come you get twice as much mail at I Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I'm sure when you open this envelope you will think I'm a nut. Well, on this subject I plead guilty. You will find attached to this letter 305 pictures clipped from various newspapers. Please note that in each of these pictures a woman is wearing her corsage upside down. What on earth is wrong with people that they don't know there is a right and a wrong way to wear a corsage? The right way Is with the stem at the bottom under the flower. A flower should look up at you. In other words, a woman should wear a flower the way in grows. Please, Ann Landers, will you help educate the women of America? A loon From Louisville Dear Loon: Here's your letter and now a word from your sponsor. Women of America, have you been wearing your corsages wrth the stems up? Well, stop it! Please. You are giving a lady in Louisville ulcers. And I hope you'll pass the word. If you see someone whose corsage is on upside down tell her. She'll appreciate it. I think. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your advice to "Yuba" was logical but not human. I say It's better to sound like a fool than to keep the resentment bottled up and get an ulcer. Since that husband relieved his guilty conscience by confess- ing to an affair which happened 13 years ago, bis wife was entitled lo the satisfaction of phoning the woman and telling her she knew. I speak from experience. Several years ago, my husband and a woman employee had an errand to do in a hotel. They decided on the spur of the momemt to check into a room. When he told me about it five years later I was furious. I telephoned the woman miles away and the call cost 114 but it was worth it. She swore on her Eastern Star ring that my husband was imagining things. I knew she was guilty but she lied her fool head off and sweated bullets. Needless to say, my husband did a little sweating, too. I might be addle-brained, but we've bwn married for nearly 40 years and I don't have an Beach DEAR NEW: You sound like a person who doesn't get ulcers, but I'll bet you've given a few. Thanks for writing the joys of vindicfrveness and the pleasure of revenge. I'm from a different school, myself. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A group of us all parents of teen-agers were having a discussion the other night and some of the ideas presented were very interesting. The ques- tion was this: Given a choice, would you prefer that you teen-age children smoke pot or drink alcohol? Someone asked, "I wonder how Ann Landers would an- swer I said, "I'll write and ask her and let you know." So what's your answer? West Coaster Who Can't Decide DEAR W. C.: That's SOME question. It's like asking, "Which would you rather have, smallpox or typhoid My answer is this: Why must there be a. choice? Who says teen agers have lo do either? I am opposed to any mind- altering agent for teen-agers, and both booze and pot come under this heading. Parents who O.K. pot because their kids have told them it is less harmful than liquor are falling into a trap. No one knows yet how harmful pot is because there have been no controlled studies. Soon the word will be out, official- ly, and I predict a great number of people (including some; psychiatrists with whom I have been arguing for five years) will be surprised to learn that marijuana Is more harmful than was first believed.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDC., LETHMIDCE NAME ADDR5SS Good crop of hair shows individuality By MAUREEN JAMIESON Sttlf Writer Long hair on tht young male has been known, upon occasion, to raise the blood pressure in more than one happy household. Why? "Short hair is i symbol of said Lethbridge pjy- chiatrist Dr. Lawrence Kotkas, and "long hair is a symbol of individuality." "It goes back to the bible- to he said. "Beard: and long hair have come and gone, but they've always meant the same tiling. There are social advantages to being neat and clean shaven. he claimed, and also in earlier times "there was not so much to hang onto in battle." Short hair came into its own at the time of the Norman con- quest (1066 and all ac- cording to Dr. Kotkas. In that era, as in others, long lair and beards vrere organic proof of age and wisdom, proof of supposed superiority. Then William the Conqueror, liraself a young man, request- ed all his knights and men-at- arms to shave their beards and cut their hair. And in those days a royal request didn't mean 'maybe.' Off came the hair! He then doled out responsibil- ity to those best able to handle it, said Dr. Kotkas, and many of the younger, more vigorous men proved better leaders. Throughout history, he said, "short hair has been the badge of the reduction of individual- ity." Serfs and slaves were close cropped in ancient times, colla- borators in World War II were shaven, all the armed services stipulate short hair, and re- cently, Catholic women in Nor- thern Ireland have been shav- ing the heads of girls associ- ating with British soldiers The older generation Is angry about the current hair situa- tion, said Dr. Kotkas, because it resents' the "young looking like wise old men. They resent the young displaying marks of age, wisdom and individuality (which the older generation) feel they do not deserve." older generation, gen- erally clean shaven and short haired in its youth, is usually still clean shaven. "They got done both he said. UVING A MODEL LIFE Polond's tcp model, Sophia Ejbich, 25, hoi a job that makes her the of many Polish girli even though her life is nor 01 glamorous at her Western counterparts. Fashion models in Poland given on-the-job training WARSAW (AP) Little ;temor comes to girls working models in Poland. They live modest apartments, don't am much and have hardly any nance of getting into movies or n the stage. Vet a fashion house's adver- isementfor models brings locks of young girls begging for the Job. There are no modelling schools. Girls are accepted for models for their looks, vital sta- stics and appearances. After a irl is hired she is taught to move and walk professionally. Few models receive salaries.
