Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1973 7HI IITHMIOM HMALO Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please say something about the mentally twisted people who buy police radios and listen by the hour, hoping to beat the police to the scene of the crime or a tragedy. Does this satisfy a sick crav- ing for excitement or does it give them a feeling of su- periority? Whatever it is, it's an awful thing which I can't under stand. Furthermore, they are a nuisance. These weirdos push themselves in front and often hinder the work of the police, doctors, ambulance personnel, fire- men and so on. Please give me some in- DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've seen many letters in your column from teen-agers who smoke pot, but I don't recall ever having seen a letter from a pot-smoking housewife. There must be thousands, Ann, but maybe they don't write. I might be the first. Our four children are be- tween the agis of three and ten. My husband and 1 are in the middle-income bracket- perhaps higher. We live in the suburbs and he makes about a year. I start- ed to smoke pot after our last baby was born. At first, it relaxed me. It seemed as if I were looking at the world through rose-colored glasses. I was sure pot was the great- est thing since sliced bread. It minimized my problems and helped me cope with my children. My husband didn't approve of pot but he never ordered me to quit using it. I should tell you I bought the stuff from a neighbor for a lid. She said she started to smoke to get off booze. (In- cidentally, the poor girl ap- pears stoned most of the time and people think she still drinks.) About six months ago my husband told me I was be- ginning to behave like my sight as to why anyone would enjoy seeing a mangled body, a house on fire or a robber or a police officer with a bullet in his head? Can't Figure It In Madison DEAR MADISON: Why? Morbid curiosity. A eick thrill. Boredom with ones own humdrum existence. And perhaps the feeling of impor- tance that comes from be- ing on the scene when some- thing sensational is happen- ing. "Twisted" is an apt de- scription for people who have nothing better to do for en- tertainment. They are to be pitied. neighbor. I have to admit I staggered around a lot and my memory konked out. But worst of all, I was unsure of myself behind the wheel of a car. My perception of dis- tance and time were distort- ed and I tried to fake it. Fin- ally, after I had a minor ac- cident, my husband laid down the law NO MORE POT. I haven't touched a joint in six months but I am still not back to normal. I get headaches (which I never had before) and I feel slightly de- tached. But I'm determined to become my old self again and face life's problems with whatever inner resources I can muster. No more cop- ping out. Please print this for all my sisters who are where I was seven months ago. In Houston DEAR EX: The major thrust of your story is that pot didn't solve your prob- lems, it merely dulled your senses so you didn't care about them. Early, you be- lieved pot helped you to cope, but actually it made you in- different. From the beginning I have been opposed to the legaliza- tion of marijuana and I will continue to fight it. Letters like yours substantiate the earlier judgments. Thanks for writing. KRAHN HOMES LTD.

Royal marriages affairs of love LONDON (AP) In fairy tales, princesses always marry princes. In real life, they don't these days: they tend to marry commoners, for love instead of reasons of state. The engagement of Princess Anne, fourth in line of succes- sion to the throne, to Mark Phillips, an army lieutenant who is the son of a country squire and businessman, high- lights the trend. The last truly royal wed- ding in Britain was in 1947, when Princess Elizabeth, now the queen, married Prince Philip, descendent of the royal house of Greece and Denmark. Elizabeth herself was the daughter of a royal-com- moner marriage between King George VI and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, now the queen mother. Purists in Britain considered it a royal- pcommoner marriage, al- though the bride's father was an earl. The purists note he was not of the royal line. The question of who is a commoner and who is not is hedged with some confusion, especially in Britain where some experts insist that ev- eryone not of the royal line is a commoner. Outside of Brit- ain, a commoner generally is considered someone who does not have a title. In olden days, princes mar- ried only princesses, mar- riages were for alliances and not for love, and Queen Vic- toria was a close relative- mother, aunt or al- most every reigning monarch love is 7.13 getting her a rocking chair for the nursery. could win a great ENTER NOW To Broiler Growers P O.

Since those days many thrones have been overthrown and the monarchies that re- in Britain, Scandinavia, Belgium and the adjusted to fill their constitutional role democratically. Europe's royal families, which once used to get to- gether at resorts and hunting lodges, now spend more time in their countries, mixing with their fellow countrymen. As a result, the chances of a commoner marrying into royalty are greater. So are the chances of a commoner's offspring being crowned. Morganatic which the commoner spouse and the offspring are barred from the line of succession to the few and far between. Such a marriage was once considered for Edward VII and American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson. But the idea was discarded as im- practical. Edward abdicated and then married Mrs. Simp- son. That was in 1936. A survey of royal mar- riages during the last two decades shows that most com- moners come from the nar- row range of European high society. Three Swedish princesses were married in the early to a wealthy Brit- ish businessman, one to a West German prince and the third to a Swedish baron. JULIANA'S DAUGHTERS Of the three daughters of Queen Juliana of the Nether- lands, one married a Dutch a rank slightly lower than baronet; the sec- ond married a Spanish prince and the third an untitled man whose family achieved pros- perity manufacturing sun glasses. Queen Margnthe II of Den- mark married French Count Henri de Laborde de Mpnpe- zat, while King Baudouin of the Belgians wed a Spanish girl, Dona Fabiola Moray Aragon, whose family had no previous royal link. Two Norwegian princess married was a prominent businessman in Rio de Janeiro and the other runs a clothing store in Oslo. But their brother, Crown Prince Harald, an heir to the throne, had to wait 10 years before opposition melted to the idea of a commoner as queen and he was able to marry his childhood sweet- heart, Sonja Haraldsen, daughter of a businessman. Belgian King Leopold HI decided that his bride, Mary Lilian Baels, a London-born girl of Belgian nationality, could not be queen and their children could not be heirs to the throne. His marriage, in 1941, was resented because it was alleged Lilian's father sympathized with the occupy- ing German forces. Princess Irene of the Neth- erlands gave up her rights to the throne when she married Spanish Prince Carlos Hugo de Bourbon de Parma, but this was because she became a Roman Catholic and the Dutch parliament, which had to approve the union, consid- ered the bridegroom's views unacceptable. POPULAR IN BRITAIN In Britain, marriages to commoners have been the rule rather than the exception in the last 25 years. In all cases the children of these marriages have been given their appropriate order of precedence in the line of suc- cession. The Queen's sister, Princess Margaret, married photogra- pher Anthony Armstrong Jones 14 years ago and their children are in line of succes- sion. So are the children of the Duke of Kent, who mar- ried the daughter of a York- shire knight, and those of his sister, Princess Alexandra, who married businessman Angus OgUvy. So would the children of Princess Anne and Lieut. Phillips. But in all cases, these off- spring are well down the list. MORE THAN THE PRICE IS RIGHT and BY GOSH! THE PRICE IS RIGHT!
