If you broke your back, would ANY- ONE be able to lift you in and out of bed, or off a bath- everything in sight, and then nearly passes out from grief when her former mother-in- law arrives?

DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read your advice to the young girl who had been molested by her uncle, I was pleased that you had the courage to deal with the sub- ject in your column. I have been a social worker for five years and would have given the same advice. But you stopped too soon.

Too many children see the family doc- tor for only a few minutes when tbsy get their shots for camp. He is a stranger to them. The teacher is usual- ly too busy and overworked. Besides, most children would fear loss of status if the teacher knew. Please, tell children that molesting is against the law in every state in the un- ion and if they are afraid to stay home with a father or an uncle who has molested them, they can go to the po- lice and ask to be put in a foster home. There are legal provisions for voluntary or court-ordered placement. This is the solution for chil- dren whose mothers know what is going on but won't do anything about it-Cali- fornia S. W. DEAR S.

WINDSOR, England (AP) The battle of the sexes has disturbed the cloistered calm of .centuries-old Eton College, the hitherto exclusively male school that has produced many of Britain's generals, scholars, poets and business leaders. The row exploded when the Eton College Chronicle pub- lisbed an editorial saying that the school's only female pupil was "a social misfit" among so many males. The-lady in question, Lucy Bourne, 17, called the anon- ymous author of the editor- ial "mate chauvinist pig." The magazine article was commenting on Eton's grad- ual process of admitting girls. This began two years ago with four girls attending classes at certain times dur- ing the week. Last year, Lacy, daughter of a bouse master at the school, began as a full-time pupil.

I article said girls could be- come depressed and self-criti- cal jf the college did not stop "dabbling ia experiments by admitting a few of them and go either full-scale coeduca- tional or remain a male stronghold." To this Lucy replied: "What an arrogant point of view. As far as I can see there is no difference between the work at any this and my last school. I have not found it easier, or harder." Lucy's father, Robert Bourne, said: "I don't think Lucy is par- ticularly upset. The remarks were not aimed at her but she felt they needed answering." 1 Peddling for charity TORONTO (CP) Summer holidays'will not be a time of rest for a 26-year-old member of the North York borough council Katie Hayhurst left for Van-1 couver last week on a motor- cycle and hopes to be back in North York for a council meet- ing July 23.

Doesn't that look more appealing? To give extra food value add mounds of cottage cheese, wedgss of cheddar or a scoop of ice cream. And if you're us- ing a dressing, make it creamy rather than oily.

(AP) Things that seem ordinary to most ca- reer women are extraordinary to Jeanne Gardner, a former Roman Catholic nun who left the convent because, she said, she found it stifling. For the first time in her life, she is financially independent. Her apartment is filled with bright clothes, sluing and sail- ing equipment. She goes out at night with both male and fe- male friends. Jeanne Gardner is 40 years old but she began her current lifestyle just 10 months ago. For 22 years before that, she was a nun. Now she is assistant professor of education at the University of New Hampshire in Durham. She is strong-willed and dedi- cated to teaching. "I have been accused of being powerful, Dr. Gardner said. "A male-oriented society just can't accept that. I have my feet on the ground and it's not always appreciated." She left the Sisters of Mercy Convent in Cumberland, R.I., last August when she realized she couldn't resolve the ques- tions she had about herself and her status in the order. "I think the direction of my life changed because the direc- tion of education and thrusts have changed. It doesn't mean that I'm turned off on the church. That has nothing to do with it at all. "It's just that my dedication to education is stronger at this point than my dedication to service in the church." As a teaching nun, Miss Gardner said she often felt PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES 2 JACKPOTS IEIHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upstair.) EVERY THURS-8 p.m. thwarted by the religious com- munity.

Miss Gardner earned a mas- ter's degree from Rhode Island Family Living College and a doctorate from the University of Connecticut while she was still in the order. "My belief in the church has not she said. "My stand on birth control very defi- nitely has. I still'can't accept abortion but that is for my own personal reasons. I think the church would not be in the posi- tion that it's in concerning abor- tion if it had realistically looked at tiie birth-control issue. "I'm not sorry for that 22- year phase of my life. I think I gained as much .from it as they gained from me. "But admittedly there is a need for other kinds of compan- ionship that were not available in the church."
