Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurdoy, Jun. 34, 1972 THI LtTIWRIDCI HMALB 17 THE BETTER HALF By Barnes next time you decide to heat a can chili for a midnight snnck, open it first. Diplomats' wives dependent more in OTTAWA (CP) Wives of C a n ,1 d i a n diplomats abroad j may be expected lo help wilh entertaining, but they have long been relatively free of obliga- tions evidently faced by some of their foreign counterparts. For example, a directive cir- culated recently among the American diplomatic corps re- lieved wives of junior officers of having lo perform any specitic dutes while abroad on a post- ing. Tlie U.S. wives will no longer be subject to orders from wives of ambasadors demanding help with a range of chores such as making sandwiches for parties. And whal they do or don't do will no longer figure in perform- ance evaluation reports carried out on Uieir husbands. Canadian wives of diplomats officially are not expected to take part in training programs or have specific duties in the Canadian foregn service. Nev- ertheless, there slill exist some whose frequency usually de- pends on the ambassador's wife. Younger members today accept it less readily in many cases than did their older colleagues. Activities of Canadian wives today however, short of breach- ing security or disgracing Can- ada's image, can be wide-rang- Ann Landers F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL 6th Ave. A and 13th St. N.

Mrs. J. H. Taylor, president of the Foreign Service Officers Wives Association, says advice is passed informally among wives "but all those 40 or over feel wary of giving advice to younger ones any more: It's not always well received." An external affairs spokes- man says that if a wife has any effect on her husband's career, it's indirect and most likely to involve entertaining. But conceivably an officer with a wife who disliked enter- laining could do it himself, as would a bachelor, with impun- ity. Some wives, especially the young ones, want jobs outside the home. But the decsion may rest with the head of the post who will take into acount the local situation. It is expected that a diplo- mat's wife won't take a job away from a cilizcn of the coun- try of posting, or won't trans- gress the host country's require- ment for working papers for foreigners. In short, it's a matter of not interfering with the privileged position a diplomat and his fara- ly enjoy abroad. Wives may be asked to help prepare (or an embassy func- tion such as the observation of the national day, the entertain- ment of a visiting cabinet minis- ter or the celebration of Chrisl- mas by the staff. But a wife apparently may refuse without being detrimen- tal to her husband's career. "I've never been pressured lo do something when there's been something else lo says Mrs. Richard Gorham, whose husband was second secretary in Tokyo, first secretary in India and commissioner in Cambodia. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Will you settle an argument please? My husband and I received an invitation to a silver wedding anniversary party. It is being given by the children of the couple. The invitation is engraved. At the foot of the invitation it says, "No gifts, please." This, in my opinion is in terrible taste and I say no ethical printer would produce such a cloddish invitation. After all, people who are in the business know what's right and if they are half-way decent they will protect their customers against such ignorant mistakes. What do you say, Ann? Vermont Readers DEAR V.: I agree it is not in good lasle to mention gifts on an invitation of any kind, but the printer's job is to print. If asked for a printer might indulge in a little guidance. But most people go to the printer with their minds pretty well made up. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am getting married soon and I have a problem that has been keeping me up nights. Mom and Cad were divorced three years ago. Mom didn't want the divorce but Dad did. Slie took it awfully hard. Six months ago Mom started to date. Bhe now has a real sweet boyfriend who treats her like she was made of Dresden china. I'm sure Mom would love it it I would ask him to give me away al the wedding, but I'm afraid my Dad would be terribly hurt. I owe my Mom more than I owe my Dad, but I want to do the right thing. How shall I resolve this problem? See Saw Majorie Daw DEAR MARJ: If you want your Mom's sweet boyfriend to be present as a guest, I see no reason why he shouldn't be invited. But your father should give you away. DEAR ANN LANDERS: It happened again this evening and I am so furious I must get rid of my anger before T pop a vessel. I stepped in some dog-do right my office, slipped, turned my ankle, ruined my shoes and wsed a few words I didn't know were in my vocabulary. My office isn't in the slums. It's in the best part of town. What a disgrace lhat a person can't walk on the sidewalk without risking (his disgusting nuisance. What can be done about it? I thought the streets were for people. Mad In Ohio DEAR MAD: You are streets ARE for people. So, in the words of Mike Royko, use the street and take the dogs to the rest room. To put it another way, dogs use whatever facilities are you can't blame THEM. It's the owners who should be penalized. But try and find 'em. Leash laws are, of course, a good solution, but they are not in force everywhere. Your best bet is to keep your eyes watch your step. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My la-year-old son'ls going with a girl 20. They spend almost every evening at our house. She comes here after work and has dinner and then she and Steve watch TV or wrestle. The wrestling is all in good at least I thought it was fun until I noticed that sometimes they really hurt each other. Several weeks ago the girl bit Steve so hard it broke the skin. He had her teethmarks on his neck for several days. Last night Steve bit her in the fleshy part of her upperarm. She screamed so loud they must have heard her in Buffalo. It bled quite a lot. I once heard lhat a human bile can be dangerous. Yes or no? A Canadian Reader. DEAR READER: A human bite can be very dangerous. Tile mouth is full of bacteria and complications can result il the victim doesn't have enough resistance to fight off infec- tion. I hope (hese two 'gladiators have had tetanus shots.
