Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 22, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: It's plain that you haven't worked with the public in quite a while. Your reply to "Utica Gripe" made that clear. You said, "A competent employee is interested in moving merchandise. He doesn't resent staying with a customer who Is buying, or even looking." Let me fill you in on a few facts. I am a waitress in a restaurant In a large department store. I work anywhere from five to eleven hours a day and I attend school, too. Waitresses are the lowest paid workers there are. I can tell you from experience that nothing Is more unnerving after standing on your feet for ten hours than to have some jerk come in at closing time and ask, "Are you still It's the dirtiest trick in the book. Stop shaking your head, Ann The rocks are falling out. Griped In Scranton DEAR GRIPED: Better rocks than nothing which seems to be your problem. Waitresses work hard very hard- end the hours are often grueling. But if I had no special skills and wanted to make as much money as possible, I'd be a waitress. Granted, the salary isn't great, but an ener- getic waitress who is competent, cheerful, and gives first- class service evn when people come in at closing time, will; clean up in tips. And THAT'S the name of the game, Honey. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Yesterday I attended a tea. I loaded my plate with creamed chicken, shoestring potatoes and a piece of pecan pie. Later when I reutrned to the sweet table for a piece of lemon meringue tart, I caught a blistering glance from an overweight lady who was nibbling on a soda cracker. If looks could kill I'd have died right there. What so many fat people don't understand is that they are better off than skinny people. I battle every day of my life to put on a few ounces. What a disappointment to step on the scale after stuffing myself all week and discover I've lost half a pound! I walk around feeling overfed painfully aware of my bony neck, angular arms and flat behind. How I envy the voluptuous, curvy women with round hips and provocative cleavage. They look healthy, fulfilled, well fed and well loved. Sign me And Bones DEAR BONES: Thanks for writing. I feel better already. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The high schools In our city have had a real problem with pregnant girls. It used to be that they kicked them out, even if they were married. A few years ago pressure was put on the school board to change that puni- tive rule, so now the pregnant girls are allowed to finish the semester, married or not. Teachers, however, get no such privileges. We must quit teaching as soon as we enter the fourth month of pregnancy. This forces teachers to lie, wear uncomfortable girdles and loose-fitting smocks. Naturally all babies are "premature." The last "premature" baby born to a faculty member weighed 9 pounds and had a full head of hair. Isn't this ridiculous? What do you think should be done? In Chicago Dear Mad: ridiculous. It's also unrealistic. The rules should be changed. All-female model farm works well BAGHDAD, Iraq (Heuter) Successful operation of a model farm run by women has spurred consideration here of plans for more such all-female farms. The Idea fits into Iraq's ef- forts to alter the role tradition- ally assigned to women in this part of the world and give them opportunities to do productive Jobs. The pilot farm was set up in a Baghdad suburb last year. Worlcing on it are 380 members of the General Federation of Iraqi Women. It is run by an elected admin- istrative board, whose members are agricultural school gradu- ates. The 75-acre farm was set up on state-owned property. The woman farmers were trained in handling agricultural machinery loaned by the government, and have formed the first women's agricultural co-operation asso- ciation in Iraq, organized on so- cialist lines. Their aim is to use modern scientific methods to help boost agriculture and to contribute to local consumption req u i r e- ments. PLAY ACTIVE ROLE Rejecting the traditional role of women in Moslem society, the Iraqi government is trying to give them new opportunities for productive work. Women's activities are no longer re- stricted to modest jobs or sit- ting at a desk doing routine work. The farm's board of adminis- tration is considering the estab- lishment of a modern village housing peasant women and a social and cultural centre. It has plans to start a clinic, an elementary school and other so- cial sendees. Saturday, July 71, 1972 THE IfTHBRIDCE HBU1D 17 j Woman cattle order buyer inched out her competition BRANTFORD, Ont. (CP) When Ruth Bartlett first started buying cattle, she says her male competition minded. "They used to. give me a rough time, but not any more. "They would make wise- cracks about some of the calves I bought. Sometimes they would run me up in the bidding and try to leave me stuck with too high a price. That doesn't hap- pen too much now." That's partly because she's cut dowi a lot on the competi- tion. She now buys for Canada Packers, Norstem Meats of Kitchener, Essex Packers, Elmer Bender of Buffalo and for many small abattoirs. j Mrs. Bartlett is believed to be the only woman cattle 'order j buyer in Canada. She started 11' years ago, buying lor the farm she and her husband Ray have at Hagersville. "I had been buying some j calves for ourselves, when one! of the buyers for Monarch sug- gested I buy for tlicm. I've bcm buying ever since." I Mrs. Barlelt has become the biggest buyer at local auction centres, and she that brings its own problems. She says she has to be careful that she is not "run up" by someone who knows her buying power. She also has to allow Uia competition to buy some calves. "It works both ways." F.O.E.
