(CP) - On any given night at a house on Cross Street, you are likely to find euchre and pinochle games in progress, an organ, guitar-rand fiddle combo warming up, and a record player and two TV sets in Ml operation. : "v. it's not a iieighljorhoed'recreation centre, but ttp home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bastion, whose marriage in November, i960, combined1 two families for a grand total of 17 children, now aged four to 21. Mrs. Bastien, the former Mrs. Sua ZaHsko, was a widow with six children when she gained 11 additions from widower Ed Bastieh's prfr vious marriage. After maintaining harmonious, if noisy, household; in their five-bedroom home for 18 months, the couple feel they can laugh at friends who thought the union would be unworkable. One of their peace-keeping secrets is that the rule of law' prevails. "We got the kids together before we were married and told them what the laws would be," said Mr. Bastien. "They haven't given us any trouble." The law says all the children in bed by 11 p.m. on week nights-even the oideet, who is 21 and working. The,TV goes off at 11 p.m., unless  show is Just finishing, ;but it mutt be off by 11:15 . under any circumstances. All phone calls are limited to 10 minutes. The family's seven girls do all the dishes, and the older boys do all the ironing. Mr. Bastien insists that "not one of them it lazy."- . In fact, all toe children do more work now than before the families were combined and often surprise their parents by doing niore than is asked of them. /. Mrs. Bastien /is kept busy with just the cooking and the washing. Her /two washing machines run all morning every m o r n i n g, processing eight or nine loads a day. She boils an eight-quart pot of potatoes, every day and makes dozens of sandwiches. The family's bread consumption is 12 loaves a day. Woman's place in home no longer valid rule never together ^ (feameTTes OTTAWA (CP) - The once-firm rule that woman's place is in the home has been modified, say researchers who did a special study on married women in the labor force. Byron G. Spencer of Mc-Master University's department of economics and Dennis Feath-erstone of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, for whom the study was done, say the new rule is likely to read: The woman's placets in the home if she has small children and strong motivation to stay with these children, or if she lacks good substitute care for the children. The researchers concur with previous studies' in saying that the trend of married women in Canada and elsewhere to work outside the home has increased dramatically in recent decades, Only 3.5 per cent of married women were in the labor force in 1931, but by 1951 the figure had more than trebled. By 1961 it had increased more than sixfold, reaching 22 per cent. "Furthermore, the married women formed an increasing portion of the total female labor force during this period: In 1931 the married woman accounted BINGO - RAINBOW HALL "<� 5th Ave. n.

From their study they concluded that a married woman is less likely to be in the labor force the higher the level of family income available, exclusive of her earnings. "One of our 16-year-olds eats a whole loaf after supper every night." Hie bakery calls the Bastien home when its day-old bread stock is ready to be picked up. Hie grocery list,is further swelled by 48 quarts of powdered milk a week plus a three-quart jug of whole milk a day. And 12 quarts of pop must be bought each week. The family's transportation is a custom Ford mini, bus, with seating capacity for 12 adults. It took Mr. and'Mrs. Bastien and 13 of the children to Nova Scotia for a camping trip last summer. The Bastien's chief complaint about Windsor is that there are not enough places where a family can go together. "In the old days there were dance halls where parents could take their kids," says Mr. Bastien. "But now if the kids are under 21 about the only place they can go is a school dance." FAMILY HARMONY - When Mr. and Mrs. Edward Bastien married in November 1969, they brought together two families from previous marriages for a total of 17 children. In a year and a half, they say, there's rarely been a disagreement in the home. In back row, from left, are Louise, 10, Gerard, 12, Raymond, 18, Ronald, 21, Tom, 16, Afphonse, 4, Mrs. Bastien, Lawrence, 6, Becky, 14, Marie 14, and Mr. Bastien.

DEAR ANN LANDERS: I was moved to tears by the letter from the 15-year-old who wrote to you the night her Dad died. I lost my wonderful father last year so I know exactly what that girl is going through. And now I would like to add a thought that might help her - and others. DEAR FRIEND: Your father is gone. There is nothing you can do for him now. But you can do a great deal for your mother. She has lost her mate - her partner. She will be lonely and sad after.; the relatives and friends stop coming - as they must and will. You can make your mother's life easier by giving her an extra measure of love and consideration. She needs it now more than ever. This may be hard for you, as it was for me, because I was a Daddy's girl. I'm sure my Mom knew I felt closer to him than to her.  At times I miss my father so much I can hardly stand it but I know my heartache will heal faster than Mom's. I have a. whole life ahead of me. She might not be able to rebuild her life.without him. Her happiest days may be behind her. So do what you; can to help. Your Dad is counting on you. -Bunny DEAR BUNNY: Thank you for a touching letter. I'm sure many gate in the reading audience felt you were speaking directly to them. *   DEAR ANN LANDERS: My 19-year-old brother is oh the verge of getting married to a tramp who has slept around all over town. He always dated lovely girls from nicef am -ilies, girls he was proud to be seen with, and now he ends up with this. My husband and I have tired to talk some sense into his head but it's'useless. He says be knows all about the girl's black past but be would rather have a wife who has gotten the running around out of her system. He is sure she will be faithful. - Do promiscuous girls settle down after marriage, Ann? Or do virginal girls make the most faithful wives? -Asking In Aspen 1 DEAR ASKING: There's no way of knowing. Some promiscuous girls do settle down after marriage and some virginal wives become promiscuous, But this I can tell you - statistics on divorce among teen-agers is frightening. And the survival rate of adult marriages these days is nothing to brag about. ATTEND THE ALL NEW A.N.A.F.-UNIT 34 BINGO COR. 5th AVE. and 6th ST. S.
