PARAMOUNT THEATRE BLDG., IETHBRIDPE L NAME ADDRSSS DEAR ANN LANDERS: When will you stop kidding your I readers and tell them that basic human problems are in- j soluble? At best, one can only learn to live wish them. i Consider my own case. I am a reasonably intelligent re- search scientist (PhD) unfortunately, married a worn- j an who barely made it out of high school. I've worked hard j to achieve something. Shu had piddled away her time arid j is content to be nothing more than a housekeeper. There is j no meaningful communication between us emotionally, intel- j lectually or even socially. After three major illnesses f emotionally created) and finally major surgery to correct internal bleeding, I have had it. She refuses to let me go however, saying, "Whomever God has joined together. no man put asunder." Don't tell me to consult a marriage counsellor, phyelua- trisi or minister. I have already dene so. The marriage conn- seller told my wife she has lost her identity. (She pooh-poo'ns the idea.) The psychiatrist advised me to get a divorce. The minister said he couldn't see me because he had to go to the funeral of a friend. I'm sure you can do nothing for me but it might be amusing to see you try, I repeat, "Basic human problems are PhD. SOS DEAR PH.D.: Some basic human problems are insoluble, but your problem is neither basic nor is it insoluble. The statement, "She refuses to let me is the clue. Perhaps she can make it difficult for you to get a divorce, but she cannot force you to live with her. A man who has had three emotionally created illness and her ulcer operation and remains under the same roof with a woman he feels is the cause of his illness needs to examine his need lor punishment. She could not have done all tins without your co-operation. I hope you have found something more than amusement in my answer. H provides you with a solution to your "in- soluble" problem if you really want one, that is. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You have started quite a cam- paign. Several o! my friends who had never given it a thought arc now seriously considering donating their bodies to medical schools. Since you seem so fond of Harvard School. I've decided it's the one for me. But what if llwy don't rush my remains to Cambridge in time? I've been told nicdiral schools will not accept a body if more than twelve hours 'nave elapsed. What if I can't get into In Loiniin, Ohm DKAR i.OHU.MN': Slop nyiiiK. Harvard will take you. They turn down only live pvoplo. Toll your lawyer, your doctor and the members of your family. NOW. There are new laws based on the Uniform Anatomical (rift Act which has simplified donating as well as the entire body. The donation card system is considered a legal instrument. The card i> srancd ard carried at all tHurs. M dcsignaU'.-, uhirh organs thr- ciirncr wishes to donate.
