Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our next-door neighbor bought darling little puppy for llieir children. Sounds sweet? Weil, the children are four and five years of age and they treat the puppy as if it were a stuffed animal. In fact, I am not at all sure they know the difference. A few days ago I saw the youngest child squeeze the puppy so hard I thought he had killed it. 1 rushed over and took the pathetic creature oul of the yoonster's hands. Theq I went immediately to the child's mother and told her what had happened. Her response infuriated me. "Oh, Bonnie didn't mean to hurt the she yawned. "He just loves that little doggie to death." I told her she didn't realize how close her language had come to the truth. Yesterday the five-year-old had the pel in the back yard. He was dressing the puppy in doll's clothes. The skirt was so tight that the puppy was crying in agony. The child had put a hat on the puppy's head and the elastic chin-strap was chok- ing him. Again I went to the mother and complained. This time she got mad and told me she was sick of my interference and to mind my own business. I want to help that little animal but 1 don't know what to do next. My husband says he doesn't want me getting into fights with the neighbors that I have made two attempts and now I should keep quiet. What do YOU say? To See It DEAR SEE: Tell that dumbbell next door that if you wit- ness another act of cruelty against that helpless puppy you are going to call the SPCA. Then do it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: When I read the letter in your column from the guy with the bashful kidney it made my whole day. It's good to know I'm not the only one in the world with such a kooky problem. I'd like to help my af- flicted buddies by sharing a gimmick that helped me cope with the situation. It was suggested by my high school foot- ball coach. The idea is to get your mind off yourself and on to something completely unrelated. The way to do it is to WHISTLE your favorite tune. Mine was "Lulu's Back in Town." A few years ago I was in a large office building in a strange city. 1 started out for the men's room and couldn't find it. I did go by a ladies' room, however, and seeing as how my kidneys were killing me I decided to chance it. 1 ducked into one of the alcoves, which, of course, had a door on it. At that very moment I heard another person come in. I started to wlustle "Lulu's Back in Town." The voice next to me yelled, "I hate that So I immediately switched to "Way Down Upon the Swanee River." She shouted, "Thai's better." So "Swanee" has been my tune ever since. If you print my letter please don't use my name or initials. I'd never hear the end of it. Thanks, Ann. Bash- ful Kidney In Minneapolis DEAR BASHFUL KID: "Swanee River" is somehow a more appropriate selection. Thanks for your letter.

Pensioners discuss resolutions in brief Lightning takeover by Communists MAGDEBURG, East Ger- many (Reuter) A familiar road sign, "Heinz Bormann has vanished from the autobahn outside this in- dustrial town. Us disappearance signals not only the passing of a famous name from the East German scene but the end of an era in East German history. For the internationally-known Bormann fashion house, which dominated the East European fashion scene for years, has been taken over by the state after Bormann was persuaded to sell out his 26-pcr-cent inter- est in it. Tile emergence of its succes- sor, with the prosaic name of "Magdeburg Peoples' Factory of Womens' Fashions" is one example of a takeover jroccss which has caught this Communist country's or so semi-private firms unaware. "We just never expected that it. would come so said the 52-year-old couturier as ho looked across the road from his Spartanly-furnished office to the shop where his name has al- ready been painted over. Vegetarians should vary diet TORONTO (CP) You can eat as well on a fashionable health food or vegetarian diet as you can on a normal diet, if you try. What yon need lo do is sea- n such diets with a bit of skepticism toward extravagant claims for the powers of any food and to choose your foods with a care for their calorie and nutritional values. Aileen Bucknam and fieverley Reichert of the Milk Founda- tion of Canada say the surest way to make any diet complete s to eat as great a variety of ioods as possible. When you start to cut out or cut food groups, you must up the gaps in food values they leave. Sandy Sandercock, president of the Chinook Pensioners and Senior Citizens Organization, represented the province of Al- berta at a recent Ottawa gath- ering of National Pensioners and Senior Citizens Federa- tion. The convention was held for the purpose of presenting res- olutions adopted at the 1971 convention held last Septem- ber. A mecthig of the senior citi- zens and the representatives of the opposition parties was ar- ranged during the convention so as to exchange views on points In the brief. John Munro, minister of na- tional health and welfare was present to discuss the resolu- tions presented, and to offer the position of the government on the brief. The brief was a result of the study and findings of active provincial organizations work- ing together to produce a uni- fied program of the immediate problems and needs of older people. Included in the meeting was an explanation of the proposed New Horizons program which is being begun by the federal government. The project Is Initially set up for a three year period, and is a program for and by the senior citizen. A written report and answers concerning the May convention will be made available to affil- iated senior citizen groups in the near future. Few women succeed as candidates VANCOUVER (CP) The Liberal Party had hoped f o r between 20 and 25 female can- didates in the next federal elec- tion, but will have to settle for about a dozen, Senator Richard Stanbury, party president, said here. Senator Stanbury, attending a meeting of the Liberal's na- tional executive, said the party has been quite successful in involving women at the organ- iyation level hut less so at the electoral level. He said that across the coun- try about 50 women have run for nomination, but "many have not succeeded this time." He noted that nine of B.C.'s 18 Liberal Party executive members are women. down make products and gives them their animal protein. "You have to have a little more knowledge of nutrient values If you're going lo be on a vegetarian diet. If you cat the broadest type of vegetar- ian diet, you can eat well. If you take a wide variety, make sure you don't limit it to one kind of vegetable protein." Mrs. Reichert says: "If you take oul meal, four glasses of milk will give you enough pro- tein to make up for it, or five ounces of cheese, or five eggs. "If yogurt is made from whole milk, it will have the same nutrient value as milk. If it includes dried milk, it vill have a higher concentration. _____________ "If you cut out meat, you are Mrs. Bucknam says: "I don't i cutting oul about 25 per cent think we need be concerned of the iron you need. You would about a youngster who goes on a lacto ovo vegetarian diet. That includes eggs and dairy get about half that iron in five eggs, but we wouldn't recom mend eating five eggs a day. "However, If you're also nn whole grain you'll gel much of the iron back from them. "If you leave oul milk and dairy products, you're leaving oul calcium., arri there is no other satisfactory way to get calcium in Ihe diet." If you leave all animal prod- ucts out of your diet, you can make up Ihe calories and Iho proteins you need from unre- fined gruirm, from legumes, peas and beans, from nuts and seeds and a variety of fnu'ls and vegetables. Soya bean pro- tein is almost complete. It is not as easy or as simple to do as it is with animal products. Mrs. Bucknam ssrys: "Thai's when it becomes difficult to get enough protein anrf almost im- possible to get enough B12." You might talk to a dodnr aboul your diet. You could need a B12 supplement.
