You seemed to think the wife should keep her mouth shut and sit it out. It so happens that my husband is a wonderful dancer, so I've been around tiiat track plenty. When I was young and foolish I used lo have my hair fixed and get decked out in my best bib and to end up sitting by my lone- some while Twinkle-Toes was pulled and hauled every which way. (Women even cut in on I got to thinking maybe it was up to me to lell these brassy bimbos to leave my hus- band alone. Then I decided no it was up to HIM. Finally I informed him that unless be could figure out some way to say "no'J I would not accompany him anyplace where there might be dancing. He solved the problem with a simple phrase, "Sorry, I promised this dance to my wife." I hope you will print my letter since it makes better sense than your mealy-mouthed, submissive approach which reflects your well-known philosophy of a long leash for husbands. England Nell Dear Nellie: Your solution is much better than mine and I heartily endorse it. Thanks for improving on my answer. DEAR ANN LANDERS: How can I get a 45 year old woman to face reality? Her husband and I have a once-in-a- lifetime, totally encompassing love for each other. It was our destiny to meet a year and a half ago. Our relationship is exciting, alive, passionate, deep and their 23-year-old marriage never was. Our love was meant to be and no power on earth can destroy it. I wrote and explained this to his wife and enclosed a picture ot me with her husband to show her how happy we are together. She did not respond. I am fifteen years younger than she is and am considered beautiful. I am also interesting to talk to. His wife is neither. Many times she has behaved in an immature and unstable manner. This man cannot give me up. He has tried. His wife's stubborn refusal to let him go is preventing two people from achieving complete fulfillment. Your advice is tration Unlimited In Chicago Dear Frustrated: Since you have withheld so many vital marilal status, your track record, his children, if must lean heavily on the meager hits of information contained in your letter. Any woman who would send a picture of herself and her lover to the man's wife to show her how happy they are. is bananas. Such zany behavior makes me wonder about the objectivity and substance of the rest of your letter. My hunch is the man likes things the way they I would be willing to bet that's the way they'll stay. (c) 1972, Publishers-Hall Syndicate THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Dy EDWIN' A. SHANKE STOCKHOLM (AP) Swe- den's rising abortion rate led a government official to Issue this shock advice to women: Pack a condom in your hand- bag with your lipstick and powder puff whenever you go out if you haven't taken pre- cautions against an unplanned pregnancy. And don't forget lo have a supply in your night table too. Thus, the director-genera! of the social services board, Bror Hexed, publicly drama- tized what be labelled an "alarming rise" in legal abor- in 1970 to last year and a forecast of this year. Only a dec- ade ago the figure was under The Swedish social service board says its latest figures available are for 1D6S, when there were legal abor- tions, of wliich 1G4, or 1.2 per cent, involved foreign women. A spokesman estimated the percentage would be about the same for 1970 and 1971. EXPLOITED FIGUHES The alarm came soon after a government-appointed com- mission submitted proposals to make abortions easier to obtain. Pro-abortionists ex- pressed concern that their op- ponents could exploit the ris- ing figures in their campaign against any change in the present law. Such a development would run directly counter to the commission's report. It spent six years studying the delicate issue and its proposals still face an uphill fight in parlia- ment. In brief, the commission, with two of its nine members submitting reservations, rec- ommended removing abortion from the criminal law code and establisliing the principle that any woman who doesn't want the responsibility of bearing a child should have the right to an abortion with- out cost and by a competent doctor. CHURCH OPPOSED Tlic committee's proposals ran into immediate opposition from the state Lutheran Church and other church lead- ers. Archbishop Ruben Josef- son said the commission was "in clear conflict with Chris- tian belief" and had ignored the moral and ethical aspects of a touchy question. The present law is fairly rigid and requires a woman wanting an abortion to go to a special advisory centre for a thorough gynecological exami- nation. Authorization for an abortion must be obtained from the royal medical board or two the sur- geon who performs the opera tion and the other the head physician of the hospital. They must submit a report to the board coiifirming there were acceptable reasons for the abortion and give the rea- sons. Proponents of a more lib- eral abortion law, which in ef- fect would mean that no w.oman could legally be forcet to have an unwanted baby "When you told him you sleep only seven hours a day, how come you didn't mention the eight- hours you sleep every Darling, how nice of you to come and visit me IETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LIMITED POST OFFICE BOX 938 LETHBRIOGE, ALBERTA lower level 7lh Street Shopping Mall 316 7th Si. South Phone (403) 328-7411 President STAN contend tliat the present stat- ute obliged many women to resort lo illegal operations. The present law came into ef- fect in 1939. No figures are available on the number of il- legal abortions. Some doctors have ex- pressed the view that many Swedish women are resorting to abortion as a birth control measure instead of using the pill or other contraceptive de- vices. "We absolutely don't want a situation where abortion can become an after-the-fact means of Rexed said. "Women shouldn't get the idea that it is so easy to get an abortion." FEAR SIDE EFFECTS Recent discussion on televi- sion and in the press about risks and side effects of birth control pills has obviously led to a decline in their use in Sweden, he added. A speedup in contraceptive advice and provision of the means is needed, he commented, but shortage of staff trained for this purpose is a major handi- cap. "Don't panic and break off taking the pill without consi- dering a substitute contracep- Rexed warned women. Queues for abortion opera- tions steadily are growing, said one gynecologist, and doctors in women's hospital wards are so overloaded that they often have to make a decision whether to handle an abortion or a cancer caso first. A recently published survey showed that as many as Swedes are waiting for admission to hospital for treatment of illnesses of all kinds. The average waiting time is three some individual cases as long as 18 Sweden's state health service, because hospi- tals are overcrowded and staff short. Abortions are free under the public health system, but be- cause hospitals are crowded and there is consequent delay and increasing risks for women awaiting an abortion, more and more are turning to private clinics for treatment. The cost of an abortion in a private clinic averages about IN LOVINfi MEMORY For many years it was the tradition of a B.C. family to hold a coffee party just before Christmas to raise funds for the Unitarian Service Committee. When the mother of the family became gravely ill, paper cof- fee cups were mailed to previ- ous contributors for the occa- sion and since her death her husband and children have car- ried on the tradition which had been so close to her heart in life.
