Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 5, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
Friday, March 5, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am 11 years old and live in White Plains. Last year I went crazy over the clarinet. The music teacher said I should use the school clarinet until she decided if I had any talent. After two months the teacher said I might turn out to be another Benny Goodman so I begged my mother to buy me a clarinet. She talked it over with my father and they agreed to rent one. After three months of playing on a rented clarinet I begged my folks to buy me a really good instrument for my very own. On my birthday they bought me a brand new clarinet for $81. Then summer came and I got interested in swimming and playing ball. I sort of forgot about the clarinet. We had several arguments about not practicing. My teacher told Mom there was no sense in paying for lessons if I refused to practice. Now I don't care much for the clarinet and I want to take up drums. My mother is having fits. The teacher is on Mom's side because they already have a couple of good drummers in the school band and they need clarinets, worse. Is this fair?-Lined Up Against DEAR LINED: You bet it's fair. Your folks have invested $81 in a clarinet because you wanted it. Now you'd better get re-interested and live up to your end of the bargain. If your folks let you switch to drums you'll probably fall in love with the tuba. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: You goofed. The lady who said the romance had gone out of her marriage asked for help. You told her to put away her story books and accept the realities of life. You pointed out how much she had to be grateful for. You exhorted her to count her blessings. You'll have to admit it. Ann, her life sounded pretty darned dull. Why didn't you tell her to give that half-dead marriage a shot of adrenalin? There are many things a wife can do if she has the imagination. She can lose ten pounds, get a new haircut, read a book, get a part-time job so she'll have something to talk about Resides the broken dishwasher, the kid's report card, and her mother-in-law. Best of all, she can have a love affair - with her own husband. She can suggest they spend a night in a local hotel. And she can buy a black nightie for the occasion. He'll look at her with new eyes. If a wife acts like a household appliance, her husband will treat her like one. Every man wants a loveable, vibrant, exciting, fascinating woman. Be one! -Love Bird Who Sings A Lot DEAR BIRD: I vote for the local hotel bit. It's easier than losing ten pounds and it's got to be more fun. If anyone out there tries it I'd like to know how it works out. * * * Drinking may be "in" to the kids you run with-but it can put you "out" for keeps. You can cool it and stay popular.
