Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 6, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: As you can sec from the letter- head I am in jail. I am not asking for help. I am writing instead lo help your readers. As a person who has made a small Fortune in burglaries and robberies I hove some advice for your readers. Perhaps I can save them some trouble and money. People spend money on burglar alarms, pick-proof locks and watchdogs but they foolishly issue invitations lo burglars by leaving the garage doors open which lead right into the house. A hunk of meat or a blast of Mace will quiet the dog. ff a burglar wai-.ts to get Into your home or apartment he will get in. You might think it unbelievable hut I have ran- sacked many a njghtstand while the owner slept less than one foot away. Burglars have discovered that the nightsland is a gold mine of wallels, credit cards, check books, jewelry gujis. Once in the wee hours actually had lo crawl under a bed while the sleepy victim got up and went to the bath- room. When he returned and resumed his snoring I ripped the place olf for a couple of watches, a hand gun and more Mian S125 in cash. One tiling that worries a hurglar is a light in the bath- room. Most burglars do not wish to risk a face to face con- frontation with an intended victim coming out of the bath- room. It you want to discourage an intruder, keep the bath- room light on all night and the bathroom door ajar. If you are not at home, the ploy still works provided you re- member lo rumple up the ted so it will look as if someone has been sleeping in it. The important thing lo remember is this: If you are in bed and you hear a stranger in Hie house stay in bed. If you are asleep slay that way. or at least act like it. Don't try to be a hero. Most burglars travel in pairs these days and they are usually armed. If a confrontation does occur, keep cool. Remember that about 65 per cent of all break-ins today are by people who are high on drugs or pills. They are despcrale for money and will kill you if Ihey have to. Don't argue, don't scream, don't try lo get lo button or a phone. The smart thing to do is lo lake a faint and stay "unconscious." Nothing that you own is worth getting killed lor. The judge has already said I should spend from one to ten years with a deparlmenl ol correction for my misdeeds. From where I see it at the age of 21 the immediate future isn't too rosy. I hope lhal when I am free once again I'll still be worried about your house. Sincerely D.P.B. Ccllblock 3-G. DEAR D.P.G.. So do I. In Ihe meantime thank you for a very informative letler. Wrile again if you find you have time on your hands. DEAR ANN LANDERS1 Being a daily reader of your column for many years makes me confident that you nil! give me a sensible answer in plain language 1 can under- stand. I am a woman who just celebrated her 65Hi birthday. I am losing my hair and I do not want to wear a wig. Do you know of anything I can do some preparation or treat- ment perhaps, that will keep the rest of my hair from falling out? Thank you in advance. Lewislon Maine Reader DEAR L.M. READER: The main reasons for hair loss Are (a) skin disease (b) undue nervous tension (3) the natural aging process. If you have ruled out the firs! possibilities, accept your hair loss as a normal symptom of added years. Don't throw ou tmoney on useless treatments or phony salves and ointments. DEAH ANN LANDERS: 1 learned something today that opened a door to understanding and peace of mind. For years I bated my older sister. I know now it was not her fault. It was my mother's. She always favored Sis. Whatever Sis wanted she got. I grew up thinking Sis was mean and selfish. If Mother had been fair 1 would not have had these feelings. Now that I know, I can love my sister. Please print this letter for others who their The Dawn DEAR DAWN: And now if you can forgive your mother, you will have achieved a full victory.

(CP Wirepholo) WASHINGTON fAP) For women in the United States cap- ilal who suffer Ihe brutal pxpe- rience of being raped, advice and comfort, often from olher rape victims, now is just a Lele- plione call away. Staffers say the mtuit h-ohl Rape Crisis Centre is receiving about 20 calls daily from cur- rent and past rape victims and their families who st'ck medical and legal advice and, some- times, sympathy. The dozen or so women who organized the centre include several former victims of ntpu. An example of the A woman whn has been raped may be loo embar- rassed to notify police or may not want to po through a long court procedure. GIVEN INFORMATION With a phone call, she'll be given the name of a medical centre in her area and informa- tion on venereal disease. Em the staffers provide a list of lawyers and psychologists lor victims who need them. One staffer estimated thai more LTian 50 per cent of the women who call the centre do not report having been raped lo ptjlice. For women who want to re- port an attack to police, a rr will explain police proce- dures and questions, offer psy- rholotfif-al support and accom- pany victims lo station houses. IweeWnimsy Marital equality by 1975 Austria's family laws to be updated VIENNA Aus- tria's married women may i soon be freed of age-old legal j shackles that have kept Itiem i virtually second-class citizens in their own homes In Ihe past, Austrian worn- en have been forced to follow Iheir husband's orders or risk j providing grounds for j divorce. I According to a 161-year-old law, husbands arc legally em- powered to refuse llieir wives permission to hold a job. Women are also obliged lo follow their husband "without objections" if he decides In move. Now, the governing Social- ists have decided on a com- plete overhaul of large sec- tors of Austria's legal sys- tem and the so-called "fam- ily laws" will be one of their main targets. Justice Minisler Christian Broda predicts lhal. by 197S. husbands and wives will be equal partners betore the law. "A marriage between equal partners will the pa- triarchal principal and a man will no longer be head of the family." he told a conference of lawyers. The proposed innovations will allow women lo keep their family names in mar- riage or even permil a hus- band lo Uke on his bride's surname. DOUBLE EDGED But Ihe reforms will be double edged and impose new responsibilities on Aus- trian women. Once Ihe changes are adopted by parliament, an Austrian wife who takes a job will be obliged lo conlribule a fair share towards support- ing the family. Also, where in the past man was responsible for the debts of his wife, the woman now will be expected to baU out her husband if the need arises. Under the new system, a molher will have equal rights lo Ihe cuslody of children in (he event of divorce. Austria could also have or.e of the most progressive abor- tion laws in Western Europe if proposals adopted by an overwhelming majority at the congress of the Socialisl I party next April become law. They envisage molhers-to- be taking Ihe f i n a 1 decision i on whether lo abort the fetus after consultations with med- ical and welfare experts. OPPOSED BY CHURCH This has brought vigorous opposition from the church. slill immensely powerful in predominantly Roman Calho- lic Austria. One important issue the Austrians will not be reform- ing in this legislative period is the question of divorce. They regard the family legal reforms as a step to- ward putting their own house in order before making this man controversial move. I They also recognize (hat the church will r.ot object to improving basically the lot of married women, but chang- ing and easing the country's i divorce laws could provoke powerful opposition. The Austrian authorities are also wailing cautiously fnr West Germany's divorce law reforms lo come into 1 force before making rbcir j own move and Iliis may not happen before 1974. For both neighboring West Germany and Austria the question of alimony still has to be adequately resolved, al- though h o t h would welcome an easing of divorce proce- dures.
