You'll never convince me that a woman has to sleep with her boss in order to succeed. In fact. I believe the opposite is true. The smart woman remains vertical which is the logical position if she wants to go up. Dear Ann I read with interest your response to on the sub- ject of whether is acceptable as a description of those of us who have black African ancestors. it was an error to say I preferred I prefer to since I believe was used to avoh the reality of our black heritage. I don't care what people call but I DO care about the attitude behind the word used. Either term is acceptable to 'me if the attitude of the user is one of respect rather than bigotry or condescension. For I have opted for but my friends who have walked picket lines and gone to jail in the 40s and 50s for the cause of civil rights have an equal right to respect the term Negro. Patricia Roberts Harris Dear Thank you for setting the record straight. The vast majority of people with black African ancestors preferred black. A reader from Ohio made a fascinating observation.

First you are crazy if you let him continue to hurt you this way. Dear Ann iuu give advice to everybody. Will you please pass on the follow- ing to storekeepers this goes for supermarkets as well as high-class department stores. 1. Cut out the canned music. Only an idiot needs to have his eardrums assaulted 24 hours a day. 2. Put up signs and enforce them. Even though there are some people smoke anyway. Simply instruct your salespeople to ask customers to put out their cigarettes. It will reduce your cleaning costs and cut down on losses from burned merchandise. 3. In grocery have separate checkout lines for those who want to pay by check. The check cashers take twice as long. 4. Don't have turnstiles in- side the entrance. People with arthritis or other physical handicaps find these barriers a terrible inconvenience. Thank you.
