Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta
Tueiday, July IB, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERA1D Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 30 years old and have never married. People have always Lold me I am pretty, smart, and fun to be with. No one ever mentioned marriage. One day I became a little "adventurous" or perhaps panicky Is a better word and sent my name (and check) to a scientific mate-matching foundation. I had received mailings from this "Foundation" and the letterheads carried the names of a well- known doctor and two nationally known clergymen. I was sure these people would not be connected willi anything shoddy, but 1 was wrong. I was put in touch with eight "prospects" in weeks. Five were unemployed and looking for a woman to keep them. Two were overt homosexuals one offered to be my hairdresser and private secretary in exchange for marriage, if I'd Jet him keep his boyfriend. Another was a religious fanatic who wanted to know immediately if I would let him burn his initials on my back with a cigarette. The only "can- didate" who seemed to have all his marbles had a severe physical handicap and told me with considerable anguish that he had met 30 women through the "foundation" most of them crazy. For these leads he has already paid I am ashamed of myself tor having been a sucker. The public should be warned about these rackets. Tell the world, will you, Ann? Seattle Chump DEAR SEATTLE: I HAVE been telling the world, and I will continue to tell those who are willing to listen. Thanks for the testimonial. DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is my husband's first year with a firm that will soon have their annual barbecue. Wives and husbands are not invited. It's strictly for employees. We both work and have precious little time together. I resent this policy and feel that companies should promote togetherness at home instead of making trouble between hus- bands and v.ives. My husband says he is going, regardless and we've argued about it. I told him if he goes it will be the straw that broke the camel's back. CommeEt, please. Lana DEAR L.: That camel didn't have a very strong back, Lady. Although I agree that company parties that exclude mates are bummers, if that's the way his company does it, be a good sport. A wife who' would give her husband an ulti- matum over such a trivial matter is grossly immature. SIMPSONS-SEARS SEWING MACHINE RENTAL Lolt of mending to do? A wedding soon? A yen to be creative?
