Now brush your horse." Judi Walker and I were ex- periencing the first delights of "becoming channing on a horse." Our first night at the Lethbridge Community College equestrian course couldn't get much worse. It was drizzling, we were freezing and neither1 of us knew much more than the back end of a horse from the front end. My horse. Peppy, looked as though she wouldn't mind a big bite from my arm.

Now most people would scorn ie asking for a boost on a little ony no taller than myself (and s'.and My only rebuttal "don't knock it till you've led it." There were 14 of us on the londay night I think we're ailed greenhorns. But the two nstructor's, Dee Olsen and Ray lunt were patient and very heerful. That worried me. Peo- le are always unusually cheer- ul in the face of impending oom. We took our horses into the corral and practised walking. And trotting. And walking. And rotting. The bouncing was enough to kill you but we were assured that once we had the rhythm of the horse's move- ments, it would be smooth sail- ng. I smoothly sailed right off the rorse's back. Judi insists I say I "hit the dust." It sounds so dramatic. Actually, all that was damaged was my ego. One thing you learn almost immediately from, the horse is its ability to follow its own mind if you don't take the ini- tiative as leader. These ani- mals aren't stupid. Unless they know you mean business, you can spend hour's going round in circles. Pleading with Peppy or pat- ting her did absolutely no good. Being totally inept at the steer- ing business, I pulled when I snould have siid, yanked when a simple twist on the reins would have worked and con- fused poor Peppy for a great deal of the evening. After two hours of trotting, walking, and stopping, Peppy and I were almost friends. I didn't yank as much and she didn't bolt to a stop. Class was finally over when the greatest problem presented itself. My poor legs just wouldn't work properly. I was quite certain I would have to spend the rest of my days on old Peppy as I'd never be able to get down. "Judi, are we coming "I guess so." "Judi, can you walk straight' I don't think I should go to work tomorrow." So, the bridles came off, we struggled a few minutes with the halters and hobbled off to nurse our bruises.

PHONE 327-7300 Opon Thursday nnd Friday Till 9 p.m. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Some women who write to you sign themselves, "Been There." Well I'm "There Now" so please print my letter for the benefit of other 22-year-old dumbbells who think a man 20 years older is real groovy. When I was 22 I was the same kind of a nut. The fellows my own age seemed juvenile. I stopped around for a mature, settled type. In fact I shopped around so good that by the time I was 27 I was pretty shopworn myself. Finally I decided to pass up a younger guy who wanted to marry me and eloped with a man who was 20 years my senior. Now, ten years later, what do I have? A 57-year-old slob whose idea of a good time is to watch the ten o'clock news and fall asleep in front of the TV with a can of beer in his lap. If I put my arms around him he thinks I'm some kind of a sex maniac. I hope you 22-year-old girls will look again at the 24-year- old fellows. There's a lot to be said for growing old together. A woman of 37 is in her prime. A man at 5? is over the hill. Prisoner. DEAR PRISONER: Not always. Some men are over the hill at 37. It depends on the the hill. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My chances of seeing this in the paper are one in a thousand, but I can't risk your answer coming to the house. My husband wouldn't be able to under- stand why I asked. I know that penicillin is the standard cure for V.D. Almost everyone in my family is allergic to penicillin. My small chil- dren are going to grow up some day. In 10 years they will be 15 and 16. If they should get V.D. and are allergic to penicillin, what would they do? W. J. DEAR W. J.: There are a number of other antibiotics that could be used. But rather than about a cure, it seems to me a better approach would be for a mother to give her children the proper information so they will know how to protect themselves against V.D. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Thank you for your letter inquir- ing about the authorship of "Saints and Sinners" which appear- ed in your column recently. I wrote the original poem in 1937 and called it "When The Saints And Sinners Come Marching In." I have revised the poem a number of times to suit particular occasions. I used the poem frequently during the first campaign of Con- gressman John Blatnik when he ran from this district in 1948. It became part of the Iron Range political lore. Cheek with Congressman Blatnik's office for verification. Sincerely, Veda Ponikvar My reply: DEAR VEDA: I didn't have to check with Congressman Blatnik's office. I checked with Congressman Blatnik. John has been a close friend of mine for 20 years. He said, "Veda is Thanks very much. Ann Landers. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Two years ago I married and moved a long way from family and friends. My husband does not enjoy my family's company. They are not his social or educational equals and I know it. I want to go home for a two-week visit but he refuses to spend his vacation that way and I can't b'.aiite him. I've heard when a man is left alone he usually plays around. Should I risk it? Home Sick DEAR H. S.: A man who is inclined to play around will play around and it doesn't niatter if the wife is in town or not. Go home and enjoy yourself. Too many couples go from matrimony to acrimony. Don't let your marriage flop before it gets started. Send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Marriage What To Expect."
