Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Jinuary 31, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 VICTORIA FYODOROVA TELLS TRUE LOVE STORY' Moscow actress to visit American naval father MOSCOW (AP) "I'm not going to' says Victoria Fyodorova. "I just want to meet my father I'm not a criminal." A 28-year-old actress, Victoria had a promising career in films and television until she applied three months ago to visit the 77-year-old American father she has never seen. She says she has been told "through channels" she will never be allowed to go to the United States. Victoria is the result of a wartime romance between a Soviet actress, Zoya Fyodorova, and an American naval of- ficer, Jackson Tate, now a retired rear ad- miral living in Orange Park, Fla., with his American wife. Stalin's disapproval re- suited in Tale's transfer from Moscow and sent Miss Fyodorova to prison for years, until the dictator's death. "That was my birthday, Feb. 24, 1955, the day 1 walked out of that prison a free person and began a new said Vic- toria's mother, who now is nearlv 63. She was unable to contact her American lover and apparently he did not know he had a child. About five years ago an American guide in Moscow, Irene Kirk, met the Fyodo- rovas, heard their story and decided to help find Tate. The Fyodorovas have exchanged letters with him and talked with him on the tele- phone. "He doesn't speak much said Victoria. "But the first words he said to me were 'Ya tebya which means "I love you." Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I dis- agree With the person who referred to suicide as a plann- ed manoeuver to cause suffer- ing or punish others. Suicide is an uncontrollable gut-level emotional urge to find relief. It is saying, "I'm not good enough. I'm trouble. My loved ones would be better off without me." To those who are contemplating suicide, let me say this: NOTHING is worth killing yourself over. Give yourself time. Remember that old cliche, "There is nothing to fear but fear itself." .Almost always the fear is worse than the problem. ANY problem. One Who Knows Dear One: The next letter may be of interest to you. Please read on. Dear Ann Landers: This is for the person who said, "Those who commit suicide are full of hate (often self directed) and they want to put an end to their lives in order to punish someone for a real (or imagined) injustice. ('You'll be sorry for the way you treated That writer was violently one-sided in his appraisal. I have contemplated suicide many times. I'm in my 50s now and I hate nobody. Nor would I kill myself to make someone sorry they treated me badly. In fact, I can't think love 25... saving for years to surprise him with something really big. of anyone who HAS. My fami- ly and friends always have been patient and considerate. I've had a great deal of counselling over a period of years but it hasn't helped. I guess I'm just tired of swimming against the tide. I'm exhausted and depressed because I can't seern to make anything work. I seem to be fighting a losing battle on every front. Life is I'm not being fair to my fami- ly because I'm a drag a pessimist, a kill-joy. I believe the world would be better off without me. I contribute- nothing. So please, Ann, print this letter in case I do it one day. I'd hate to have those near and dear to me think I took my life to punish them. They don't deserve to carry such guilt. A Long-Time Reader Dear Reader: Get a little more counselling, please, and a physical examination as well. There might be an organic reason for your depression. You sound like such a gentle soul. The world DOES need you whether you think so or not. Stick around. I care. Dear Ann Landers: I am a 13-year-old girl and I hope you. can find space for my letter in your column. I'll get right down to the nitty-gritty. Most of my friends smoke. Not out in the open, but .secretly when they get together. The reason is they want to be considered "in." They think it makes them look like big shots grown-up, "with it." I want no part of that crazy foolishness. When you are 34 and the doctor tells you, "Sorry, the x-rays look like lung it will be too late. What difference will it make THEN to those punks you sat around with, showing off? If I'm going to be looked up to and considered a Big Deal, it's going to be because I have accomplished something, or because I treat people right. I don't want to make it with a crowd that considers smoking a smart move. Me From Schenectady Dear You: I can add nothing to your letter but my thanks to you for writing it. Right on!
