Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta July 11, 1979 THI UTHMIDGE HERALD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My wife is an entertainer. Three months ago she start- ed to work in a very nice club. When we first married we agreed that dancing with customers was out. (Most clubs don't allow it anyway, because it creates When I found out my wife was dancing with customers every night I told her I wasn't going to stand for it even though she swore she never danced slow numbers, only rock. We had a talk and she agreed to stop. Last week I walked into the dub and found her danc- ing with a customer again. It was a slow number and if she had been any closer to.the guy she would have been behind him. That night we DEAR ANN LANDERS: I really dig this dude I'll call Jeff. We are both 16 and be seems a tot older. He grew a moustache just for me and BOW he looks like Burt Rey- nolds. When I ten you I'm spaced out over him you'll know why your answer is so important to me. Jeffs parents split three years ago and he lives with Ms mom. He gets a big allowance from his dad be- sides what his mom slips him when he's short. Jeff has given me tots of presents, like a portable FM radio, a ski outfit, several record al- bums and a miniature poo- dle. Yesterday be gave me a gold bracelet with rubies in it DEAR ANN LANDERS: As a suburban high school teacher, I was particularly interested in the mother's condemnation of the store manager, who caught her son shop lifting a 39-cent pen. She calhd him a "monster" because he made her "little boy" feel like a criminal. Please tell that mother an ll-year-old kid who steals a 39-cent pen has a good cbsnce of becoming a 16- year-old rip-off artist. Many of my students have ihe idea that it's perfectly OJL to take anything they can get away with. Same of these kids work part-time in stores and they've figured out techniques for. beistmg that had a big argument. She slapped me and yelled, "I'm trying to keep our marriage together but your nagging is too Now she has ordered me to stay away from the club. Furthermore, I'm not sup- posed to ask any ques- tions when she comes home from one hour to five hours late. Also I'm not supposed to ask her how she got home. I need your Ice DEAR THIN: Your wife should be told to make a choice her marriage or the job. It's apparent that she can't handle both. And don't be surprised if she chooses the job. Nothing in your let- ter indicates that she places much value on the marriage. for my birthday. I was like tripped out with excitement. Last night Jeffs mother called and said Jeff had acci- dentally given me her very expensive bracelet and if I'd give it back she'd replace it with something "more appropriate for a girl my age." I said, "Of course." I am upset and embarrass- ed. My folks ate burned up. Dad already took the brace-, let back. He's plenty down on Jeff. What should I DEAR C.: Give everything back including your intro- duction to Jeff before he brings you "samples" from a bank. would make year bsir stand, on end. As a teacher I try to em- phasize the importance of honesty and integrity. But bow does one fight a lifetime of home values where the mother takes the child's side against everyone who dares criticiie him? Answer, please. ffiinoB DEAR PAL: It's difficult. Very difficult. But don't give up. Teachers can make an enormous impact on the lives of students especially when there is no inspiration or uplifting influence at home. I urge you to hang in there, Teacher. These kids need you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What would be a reasonable number of telephone calls be- tween a single lady who works in an office and her aged mother? Yesterday we counted eight calls in the morning and six in the noon. Miss R. telephones her mother the minute she sits down at her desk. Within an hour her mother calls her back. The. conversations an about the'cat, the weather, tiie price of meat, the neigh- bors and other trivia. We complained to the boss and he said it's up to us. He's in another office and not bothered by it. We'd like your opinion. Sick Of The Drivel DEAR DMV: Obviously the woman's umbilical cord is nude of piano wire, which is very sad. Mentioning it won't help, it would only hurt her feelings. I suspect she has already been hurt enough, so why don't you cats retract your claws and mind your own business? DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have some information that might be useful for tbe wom- an who was wondering if she should ten her Eoropean- born neighbor, a recent ar- rival to this country, to shave her hairy legs. When I was travelling in Italy and France last sum- mer I noticed many attrac- tive women on the beach had hairy legs and armpits as well Others, however, clean-shaven. I inquired about it from a cultivated ana sophisticated gentleman. Be told me that the women who removed the hair from their bodies were prostitutes. It was their unspoken trademark. Smarter Now DEAR FRIEND: That's a strong generalization and Fd be careful about applying it in every case. But cosmetic customs do vary from coun- try to country. Thanks for the due-in.

Now she's ready to pack up and go back to tbe United States. "Everything is such a struggle says the 27- year-old artist from Pittsburgh. Miss Slavitt is one of about Americans and Canadians Who came to Israel to live but who are now having second thoughts. Officials are concerned about the falling rate of Western im- migrants and rising discontent among the ones who come. Twenty per cent return" home, the officials say. Immigrants face a multitude of difficulties. The Hebrew lan- guage is unique and most new- comers agree it is hard to learn. Many find Israeli red tape infuriating. Housing is expensive. A small and simple two-bedroom apart- ment in Tel Aviv costs or more to purchasing a home is a complicated proc- ess. Rental housing is rare and rents are exorbitant. Employment in the academic field is scarce. Taxes are high and salaries are low compared with North America. Food is also expensive. STARTS AT S200 Rent for a small unfurnished apartment, without a stove or refrigerator, starts at about a month. Immigrants are allowed a three-year tax break on luxury goods, but many young single people complain they are not ready to buy such items before their concessions expire. "It takes a lot of energy to remain, to be obstinate enough to overcome all tbe difficulties and to say this is my country and here I stay.'' says Ua Nar- lass, head of the immigration department of tbe Jewish Agency. Israel always has relied on immigration for its strength and growth. When the state was born 25 years ago there were only 650.000 Jews in tbe coun- try- WiJbin three years immi- gration more than doubled tbe figure. calencuif of local napper.inqs Tbe Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens will leave for Fort Madeod to view the musical rids Sunday at 9 a.m. from tbe civic cmtre.

Since then ft has been downhill. LONDON (AP) A British housewife is fighting to have a baby by her husband while he's in penitentiary. Britain's penal code effec- tively decrees that punish- ment for crime includes deprivation of conjugal rights. Margaret Tuttle, 30-year-old former cabaret singer, cannot have sexual relations with her husband when she visits him in prison. But she wants his baby she thought she had found an answer: artificial in- semination. Last week, however, the home office refused to allow her husband Jimmy, serving 18 years, with at least 10 yet to go, for armed robbery, to father his second child in this way. "I am very Mrs. Tuttle said at her com- fortable North London home. "But I haven't given up yet." She has appealed to Sir John Peel, the s Queen's gy- naecologist, to take up her case. Peel headed a British Medi- cal Association CBMA) study group which recently urged more widespread artificial in- semination by donor to help childless couples. Peel said the refusal of the home office to agree to her artificial insemination plan wrong. If Mrs. Tuttle lived in Den- mark, Sweden or Yugoslavia she would have little or no problem. Prisons in Yugosla- via go out of their way to en- courage prisoners to lead as normal a sex life as possible. A jail at Nis, an industrial city near Belgrade, three years ago opened a "house of life" within its walls where convicts on good behavior could spend time with their wives or girl-friends. Couples were provided with a double room apartment which had flowers, clean sheets and curtained win- dows.

Their bill came to about In Denmark wives are allowed to see their husbands, and no guards are present. Swedish prisons allow unsu- pervised visits in private rooms every weekend at open institutions and twice a month at closed penitentiaries. Most jails have special rooms, of- ten equipped with sofas, where couples can meet in private EASY IN BELGIUM In Belgium, a prisoner who has served half his term can work outside during tbe day. He is free to visit his wife as he travels to or from his job. In Britain, the National As- sociation for the Care and Re- settlement of Offenders (NACRO) says the cauntry's many overcrowded "Victorian monstrosity" prisons are not suited to conjugal visits.

"We'd like to see family hostels where well-behaved prisoners could spend week- said spokesman Jimmy Gordon. He said there was little pressure from prisoners for conjugal visits from their wives. "A visit for a couple of hours mainly with sax in mind would be like a sojourn with a he said. The home office rejected the idea of conjugal visits some years ago. It said then there were "manifest diffi- culties" in providing proper surroundings and added there was a risk that more harm than good could thus be done to a relationship. Requests for artificial in- semination were rare, a spokesman said, and none bad ever been granted. He wcuM not elaborate. But an informed- source ex- plained the home office feared in Mrs. Turtle's case creation of a precedent which migh involve as many as one-third of Britain's prison population of request- ing facilities to provide arti- ficial insemination.
