Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 17-year-old son went steady for two years with a "nice girl." Now the girl is six months pregnant and she refuses to give up the baby for adoption. Marriage is out of the ques- tion. Neither one of them is dry behind the ears yet. We are trying to be nice to the girl, even though we feel she did this intentionally in an ef- fort to hook our son. We have known for a long time that he was losing interest in her and we suggested that they break off the steady arrange- ment six months ago. This is DEAR ANN LANDERS: It is regrettable that you were misled into publishing that, letter saying an automobile cannot be steered if the en- gine is turned off. All Ford products can be easily ma- noeuvered with the engine off. The effort required to steer only goes up at very low speeds. Even then, the car can be steered if it is rolling. By the way, I saw you on an airplane once, busily working on your letters. I de- all such a nightmare that I can't believe it is happening to our family. Please, Ann, tall your teenage readers that even though they are still children emotionally, they have the physical equip- ment to make live babies. And this is one mistake they will have to pay for tbs rest of their lives. Sign me-Still Numb DEAR S. N.: I keep telling them and I will continue to do so until my typewriter falls apart. Maybe YOUR let- ter will strike a responsive chord. I hope so. tennined that your bumpers, chassis, transmission, dif- ferential and accessories were just great. Congratu- lations. Charley Chrome From Detroit DEAR CHARLEY: Nice plug for Ford, which I don't mind, hi view of your kind remarks about my acces- sories. Ralph Nader hasn't suggested that I be recalled yet, so f assume I'm in pretty good shape for a 1918 model. Thanks for my laugh for the day. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was interested in that insen- sitive complaint from the woman who said her friend stepped closer and closer to talk and it was very ing because she was getting sprayed on. A few days later you print- ed a letter from an old geezer who said his secretary leaned in closer and closer as she was taking dictation and he didnt know how to tell her that she was steaming up his glasses. (He interpretwTiFas a "come on" and so did The reason for the "lean in" in both cases (you miss- ed it completely) is obvious- ly impaired hearing. The first woman should have told her Mend to .quit mumbling and to use the voice God gave her. Many people who have hearing problems are driven up'the wall by in- considerate mumblersy That DEAR ANN LANDERS: I work parMime for a veterin- arian because I love pets. Es- pecially cats. Several strays have wandered into my life. A well-meaning neighbor is cawpffg me grief. All my cats are neutered. After this op- eration cats have a tendency to gain weight. If they are fed properly their weight can be kept under control. This is what I'm writing about My next door neighbor feeds my cats and they are getting fat. I don't want to cut down on what I give them at home because they nesd nutritional foods. She gives secretary would probably die if she knew what her boss was thinking. Ill bet any- thing the poor girl also has a hearing problem. Not everyone with impair- ed hearing can be helped by a hearing aid, so they have to bluff it. Please, Am, ten your readers how thoughtful it would be if ev- eryone spoke clearly and dis- tinctly when in the company of senior citizens. The hard- of-hearing would experience a 50 per cent improvement in listening pleasure. Leaning Closer In New Or- leans DEAR LEANING: Impair- ed hearing isn't always all bad.

Please print my letter, not only for my neighbor but for others who think they are being kind. I have yet to meet a pet owner who want- ed a neighbor to feed bis ani- mals. Thanks, Ann.

"I wonder what Nanny would have done Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy, author of a book called The Rise and Fan xrf the British Nanny (Hodder and Stough- feels historians have neglected this powerful influ- ence on Britain's social his- tory and the character of her national leaders. "Our leaders were brought up by their nannies, not their the writer said in a newspaper terview. "Therefore the most important influence on them has been their nannies This is a factor which the his- torians have ignored." Gathome-Hardy, who him- self had five nannies or child's nurses, traces the his- tory of this remarkable insti- tution from its formation in mid-Victorian times, when the middle classes acquired wealth and servants, to the Second World War, which largely destroyed such cush- ioned ways of life. STATUS CHANGED Modem nannies, he notes, have shed their semi-servant status and now are treated as members of the family, earn- ing good salaries, travelling widely and raising their charges without the iron disci- pline of the old-style nursery despot in her starched apron. The two most celebrated and contrasting cases of nanny influence among Brit- ish leaders were Winston Churchill and Lord Curzon. Churchill received the love and emotional security from Nanny Everest that bis aloof parents denied him, but Cur- zon suffered such cruelty from Nanny Paraman that he wrote in some autotnogra-. phical notes: "I suppose no children well-born and well- placed ever cried so much or so justly." Although subsequently a successful and much-admired figure who rose to be Viceroy of India and Conservative for- eign secretary, Curzon bore the marks of his miserable chfldbood to toe end, says Gathorne-Hardy. He was neurotic about his food and drove himself to su- perhuman efforts of work, 18 and 19 hows a day for years on end. Unable to delegate any job, however trivial, be wasted his prodigious ener- gies and died a frustrated and embittered man, consumed by a sense of failure. Gathorae-Bardy attributes Curzon's self-punishing life to the fact that, as a child, "an absurd sense of personal duty cad been savagely beaten into him." Curzon's unhappy experi- ence was, however, rare among the nannied classes. More often the nanny was the focus of affection and many attitudes were unconsciously absorbed from her. The fact that nannies bore the brunt of child-rearing tended to make the mother a remote, ideal- ized figure, as in Churchill's case. Gathorne-Hardy believes this led, among other things, to a tendency for the upper- class English male to be sex- Cosmetics under fire OTTAWA (CP) As far as Jack Marshall Humber- St George's-St. Barbe) is con- cerned, cosmetic consumers could save a bundle if they rea- lized that the main difference between that exotic moisturizer and the five-and-dune variety often is only the price. The former businessman asked Health Minister Marc Lalonde in the Commons to table the formulas for various health and beauty aids. Mr. La- londe replied that although be does not use hairspray and cos- metics much be will "certainly look into this matter." Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray promised similar action after Mr. Marshall asked him to investigate steady price increases in personal and health care products. Outside toe Commons, Mr. Marshall said he bought two cans of hairspray, one for 79 cents and another for and sent them to the health depart- ment's food and drug director- ate for analysis. The department replied that the two products are similar hi general composition, containing between 30 and 40 in sh'gbtly different Mr. Marshall said consumers should write the government to complain about the spread in prices of otherwise similar duds. Health and personal care costs have risen five per cent since June, 1972, Statistics Can- ada reported here, ually inhibited with his own kind and often to find sexual release only with women trf a lower social bracket. He traces much of the tradi- tional British" shyness to the confusion a child encountered when crossing the class bar- rier between Nanny's nursery and his parents' drawing- room. He also throws in some so- ciological nuggets from the child-rearing methods of other cultures, suggesting there may be a connection between Canadian Eskimo tradition, where the child constantly stays physically close to its mother, and the well-known Eskimo lack of aggression and warlike instincts. Certainly the nanny system coincided with the palmy days of British imperialism, and became one of Britain's most admired exports. Russian aristocrats from the' Czar downwards were often raised by British Vladimir Nabokov spoke Eng- lish before he spoke Russian Vienna still has a col- ony of about 100 retired nan- SNOBBERY PREVAILED Nanny snobbery was in a class all its own. Pre-war nan- nies, congregating in favored parts of London's Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, would instruct their children that it was "common" to stare, eat candies or ices in the park, or to mix with the children of shopkeepers, how- ever rich. Recently, one young nanny was warned off a particular park bench by an older nanny wheeling a baby carriage em- blazoned with a coronet, on the grounds that "this bench is reserved for titled mum- mies' nannies.'' book con- tains an appendix of Nanny- sayings handed down the gen- erations such as: "There's no such word as "can't' "chil- dren should be seen and not beard" and "if you tell fibs youTl get pimples on your tongue." It also features a number of anecdotes about unflappable nannies, especially in time of war. Some children were eating a meal with fteir nanny at the height of the aWO bliz on Brit- ain. As a particularly fero- cious blast shook the room, the children cried out: "What's that noise, "Bombs replied Nanny calmly. "Elbows ofl toe table."
