The Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Baby octopuses perish in breeding experiment VANCOUVER (CP) Susan Gabe's traumatic 2tt months as stand in mother to baby octopuses has come to an untimely end. Those that didn't starve to death or eat each other died in a power cut during the New Year holiday. It was the final blow in a long series of accidents since Mrs. Gabe began an octopus breeding experiment at the Vancouver Public Aquarium last March. The accidents have included the death of both parents, can- nibalism, starvation, am- putation, and an arm stuck down a drain. The first tragedy was the death of the male octopus in May, after he was mated with a female At first, all went well for the female, who went on a 15 day egg laying spree in April. She laid tens of thousands of rice sized eggs which covered more than two square feet of space on the tank wall. In October, as the eggs were beginning to hatch, tragedy struck the dedicated mother. "We think she probably died of shock because she had a nasty accident just before she said Mrs. Gabe, who is a research assistant at the aquarium. She managed to pull the plug out of the drain in her Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I have read with amusement the letters in your column from women who seem to be in perpetual search for sexual ecstasy. Take it from an old lady who is past 60 it's all in the head. Recently I was involved in a minor accident. While the in- surance adjuster, a handsome young man in his 30s, was writing out the claim, I felt a sudden surge of passion. (I had a hysterectomy 10 years Had I been 30 years younger I'm sure I'd have made a pass at the young man. So you see, Ann, where sex is concerned, there's a very thin line between reality and fantasy. Gutted But Not Dead Dear Not Dead: There's a great deal of fantasy connected with sexual desire, in fact, lust is loaded with it! This doesn't mean you were imagining those feelings. A woman in her 60s can be far more sexually, dead "gutted" or not and your experience proved it! Dear Ann Landers: Why do people have such dirty minds? I refer to that mealy-mouthed gossip who noticed that a cer- tain girl in the office always wears the same outfit on Thursday that she wore on Wednesday. The cat observed: "Her dress is usual- ly pretty wrinkled and her hair is a mess." She concluded that the girl has a steady arrangement and doesn't sleep home on Wednesday night. That letter made me furious because last Wednesday night I went directly from work to a friend's house following a frantic phone call. Her hus- band is overseas and her labor pains had started. The poor kid has no relatives in town and I am her only close friend. When I arrived, the taxi had already been called to take her to the hospital. She was waiting for me with instruc- tions on what to do for the two pre-schoolers Her two-year-old had a terrible cold. I slept on the couch and held that child in my arms all night. The follow- ing morning the woman next door took the kids and I went to work looking like I had lost a rassling match with two gorillas. THE BETTER HALF Sorry I couldn't have turned up looking fresh as a daisy in order to protect my reputation, but these are the facts, Ma'm. Nuts To The Gossips Dear N. ff G.: Let's hear it for a Good Samaritan with wrinkled clothes and messed- up hair. Thanks for writing! Dear Ann Landers: You ad- vised mothers to teach their daughters to sew, cook, fix hems and make beds. You then went on to suggest that fathers teach their sons to be "fixers" of whatever might break in the house. Where have you been these last ten years, Annie? Don't you know that His and Her duties are things of the past? Men should know how to sew and cook and make beds and women should be able to fix faucets, repair appliances, change tires and repair whatever breaks. Assigning certain jobs to certain sexes is unfair, un- pleasant and impractical. We share the work at our house. But how much easier it would be for both of us if, when we attended school, home economics and woodshop had been compulsory subjects for everyone. Over 30 Dear1 Over: Right you are. Odd jobs know no gender. These past several years have seen a blurring of the sexes. Today, precious few things are exclusively His and Hers. In fact, we have trouble labell- ing He and She. Thanks for writing. What kind of wedding goes with today's new life styles? Does anything go? Ann Lander's completely new "The Bride's Guide" tells what's right for today's wed- dings.

Although the damaged arm had to be amputated, the mother octopus appeared to be recovering her color returned and she continued caring for her eggs. Then, suddenly, she died. Knowing the eggs wouldn't hatch if they weren't agitated in the way the mother would do it, Mrs. Gabe took over the job. For 2Vi months she agitated eggs about one hour every day, moving her fingers through them In imitation of a mother octopuses arms. As soon as the eggs were hatched, another problem arose. "I didn't know at first the right food and the right quan- tity to feed she said. "I tried all kinds of things, but they would eat nothing and thousands of them died of starvation." Finally, when she was down to her last 100 babies, she hit on the right combination of brine shrimp and fish fry and they began to eat. But they got so enthusiastic about it, they started munching on each other. "I suspected they were eating each other because there would be 30 alive when I left the aquarium on Friday but only 15 on Monday and there were no said Mrs. Gabe.

'Mrs. Richards, who is in her early'sixties, has been ap- pointed a constable for the Cross Lake Indian Reserve about 320 miles north of Win- nipeg under a special cer- tificate issued by the RCMP. Ken Stowell of the depart- ment of Indian affairs here says she is certainly the first Indian woman appointed to such a post in Manitoba and is probably the first in Canada as well. "She has full authority as a special police constable under the RCMP act and will be working with two other male constables under the supervi- sion of the he ex- plained.

Stewardesses dislike ad Veteran stewardess Polly Musch and Son Adam, 2 tt, TNI LTTHMUDOft Girls protest slogan LOS ANGELES (AP) Some Continental Airlines stewardesses say the firm's new advertising slogan, really move our tails for is degrading to them. "When Hirst heard the slo- gan, I was just Claudia Lampe, a representa- tive of the Air Line Pilots Association to which the stewardesses long, said Friday. "It's degr- ading to us." She said married steward- esses have gotten complaints from their husbands, and "we even have a few fathers who are unhappy about this." Polly Musch, a married 10- year veteran of Continental, said: "I think it represents a lack of respect for hostesses. We have always projected pride, a class kind of image, and this slogan is barroom talk." But Continental executives insist the slogan refers only to the tail of the plane, not to part of a stewardess's anatomy. But some stewardesses don't object.
