Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 _ THE IETHBR1DCE HERALD Tuesday, July 6, 1971 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: This letter is so bizzare you might not believe it, but every word is true. I am being blackmailed by my teen-age daughter. Several months ago a friend came to the house to pick up a jacket his wife had left at our place a few nights before. The children were at school and my husband was at work, so I invited the guy to visit over a cup of coffee. Well, one thing led to anotlier and what had been a pla- tonic friendship for years ended up as an intense case of mutual physical attraction. My daughter walked in at exactly the wrong moment. School had been dismissed early and there we were. My friend left in a state of near collapse and my daughter and I had a long talk. She refused to believe this was the first time such a thing had happened. She kept repeating "What a rotten thing to do to I got her to promise not to say anything to him about it. Now she is using "our little secret" (as she calls it) to blackmail me. Unless I give in to her every whim, she threatens to tell Daddy. I've thought of calling her bluff but I am scared to death she will make good her threat. I had no idea this child could be so ruthless. I need your advice at once. Too Late DEAR C.T.L.: The only way you can break you daugh- ter's hammerlock is to tell your husband the whole story. I urge you to do so immediately. You should then inform your daughter that you finally decided to get this dreadful load off your conscience and now Daddy knows. I hope your husband has the capacity to forgive and forget. I frequently give this advice to women whose husbands have cheated. Now tile shoe is on the other foot. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Maybe you'll tell me I'm a poor loser and to quit making excuses for myself, but I'll take that chance in the hope that you can give me an answer to my question. I am hooked on contests. I have entered approximately 300 contests in the last fifteen years, spent a fortune on prod- ucts I didn't need, and gone so Jar as to enter the same contest six. times, under different names. The only prize I ever won was a package of flower seeds. Please don't think I am bragging when I tell you I am a lot smarter than the average person. I am creative, ima- ginative and meticulous when it comes to following direc- tions. Most people don't have my kind of patience for de- tail. Who in the world wins these contests, anyway? How are the winners selected? Do the judges prefer big city people? Am I out of luck because I live in Pickford, Michigan? Please tell me. Ran DEAR ALSO: Most contest winners have won other con- tests. They are clever people who have learned how to at- tract the attention of the judges and have developed a knack for preparing a winning entry. The size of the town you live in is not a decisive factor except that the judges usually want a geographic dis- tribution of winners. If you enjoy preparing for contests, do it as a hobby with no thought of winning. One of these days you might be surprised. It it's any consolation for you, honey, about 20 years ago I entered a Planter's Peanut contest, bought a dictionary, worked like a dog for three weeks, and didn't even win a package of flower seeds.

S. ivina EDMONTON (CP) Equal cpresentation of men and in public life would pro- uce a more stable world, says 'alienee Thorns of Australia, (resident of the International 'ederation of Business and Pro- cssional Women. Women have a greater in- uilt respect for human life and re more concerned with taking teps to save she said in an nlerview this weekend, just jrior to the start of the federa- ion's international meeting. "Women are more inclined to lompromise and to talk things iut, while men prefer to take more aggressive action." Miss Thorns is women's news 'ditor of Brisbane's daily Cour- er-Mail. She believes women ;hould take on more chic re- iponsibilities, for example, be- ;inning with local committees and moving on to local govern- ment, then provincial and fed- eral politics. "Men have been carrying the burden of responsibility in busi- ness and political affairs far too long, and I feel women should give them a hand. "It's only logical that women should have some say in poli- cies which govern their lives." The Business and Professional Women's Federation, wliich has about members in 40 countries, is holding its 12th in- ternational meeting today until Friday. Woman and youth both get the same kind of put down by aduit males, a young worker told the international women's seminar Sunday. Pat Mooney, executive sec- retaiy of the International De- velopment Society in Calgary and youth representative to several United Nations com- m i 11 e e s, said women and youth both know the same kind of token comment. "You're always being told that behind every great man is a woman. We're always being told that tomorrow will be ours." But both women and youth can bring something different to the world today, he said. Speaking to a pre congress seminar of a United Nations committee of the IFBPW, Mr. Mooney said women and young people can bring a new view that places value on human life and human dignity instead of technology. Agricultural convention program ior families The 51st annual meeting and convention of the Agricultural Institute of Canada and its af- filiated societies, has planned a full social program for the wives and families attending the convention. These events got underway Sunday in the El Rancho Motor Hotel, with activities expanding Monday morning to a coffee party and Japanese cultural demonstrations at the Yates Memorial Centre. Today, the women were scheduled to leave by bus at a.m. for a tour of Water- ton Lakes National Park, and a luncheon at the Prince of Wiles Hotel. Wednesday tours of the city will be conducted for the wo- men, with the remainder of Wednesday and Thursday be- ing filled with banquets, recep- tions, coffee parties, and a dance. In the youth program such activities as bowling parties, tours, barbecues, and visits to Waterton Lakes, and the Fort Macleod NWMP Museum have been planned. These activities will wind up Wednesday evening with a so- cial at home. a private Lethbridge THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes1 Men's frivolities while women work EDMONTON (CP) Dur- ing this week's international women's club meeting, there'll be the usual lunch- cons, bus tours and city visits for the spouses of delegates. Only this time, it's the men who get the frivolity while the women get down to business. About 42 of the dele- gates from 40 countries at- tending the 12th congress of the International Federation of Business and Professional Women brought along their husbands. The program indicates that husbands will be welcome at the social functions. Then while the women debate ques- tions such as equal status in politics and jobs, economic collaboration in world com- munities or resolutions on family responsibility and planned parenthood, the men will play golf and tour local businesses and industries. The only thing missing is a men's fashion show. NURSES WANTED AUSTIN, Tex. criti- cal shortage of nurses is spreading all over Texas, re- ports the Texas Hospital As- sociation.

Extensive use of Vitamin C needs research TORONTO (CP) More sci- entific investigation should be done before everyone rushes out and buys huge stocks of vi- tamin C to protect them from the common cold. Consumer Reports has cautioned.

Sales of vitamin C or ascorbic acid have leaped upward since Prof. Linus Paul- ing, a former Nobel Prize win- ner, recently published his book Vitamin C and the Common Cold.
