Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: These days when George Or- well's novel seems Crighten- ingly real, when super-snoop- ing on one's neighbors is con- sidered "nothing please tell me how, of IF a person can, tell if his tele- phone is being lapped. Can a person protect him- self against being listened in on? What he do if he sus- pects his line is being tap- ped? I'm sure others would like to know tile answers to ttiese questions. My thanks in ad- vance. God Btess America But What Have We Come To? DEAR G. B. America: I call- the Bell company and this is what they told me: A per- son usually cannot teU if his phone is being tapped. If you suspect your conversations arc being monitored, call tele- plione repair service and re- quest that your line be checti- ed. If repair service finds a tup, they cannot remove it if the tap was legally author- ized. The customer can, how- ever, see a lawyer and at- tempt to get the tap removed if it was installed by court action.. An ILLEGAL lap how- ever, will be removed at the customer's request. P.S. I agree with you about the increesp in invasions of privacy, ft is outrageous and frightening. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Are you sicK of the No-Bra question? Please have one more go at it, Ann. My prob- lem is different than most. Do you realize how difficult it is for a large-breasted woman to find a bra that fits? I wear a or E (de- pending on the manufactur- er) and I am so miserable in a bra that I usually go without one. The truth is, I love to have an oper- alion to reduce the size of my breasts but I am afraid. So please don't be so hard on those of us who have no visible means of support. It doesn't necessarily mean we are trying to be sexy. Some of us just want to be comfort- able. Dixie DEAR SOUTHERN COM- FORT: If yen wear a 44D or E and are going without a bra, I suggest that you contact your physician and ask him to recommend a plastic sur- geon who specializes in breast reduction. Tile 'operation is safe and thousands of wom- en who have had it say they .luve never fell better or looked belter.

Phone 327-3024 DEAR ANN LANDERS: Am I money mad ov do I have a legitimate complaint? I bought a bus-tour ticket (complete with-lunch) for a historic iour of Virginia homes. Tiie day before the trip a lucrative writing job turned up and since f work on a free-lance basts. I couldn't turn it down. A friend who also had bought a ticket told.me about a woman who had wanted to go but her check was return- ed because she waited too long and the tour was an early sellout. made arrangements for the disappointed woman to use my reservation.

Do I have the right to ex- pect the woman to pay me for that ticket? Reluctant Lady Bountiful DEAR LADY: Obviously there wns a foul-up in com- munications and a misunder- standing. I do not feel it would be oat -of line if you dropped the woman a note explaining that 'you were merely accommodating her and you'd like to be reim- bursed for the ticket. Where did you get. such a crazy idea? Surely if this were true, business firms would not address millions of letters, "De.ir Madam." How about accepting a rap in the moutti with a Webster's un- abridged dictionary? In- sulted DEAR IN: Sorry. I plead not guilty. You misread me. What I said was this: If a waitress asked a group of middle aged women here, "And what will you Madams she would probably receive a very cool reception and a small tip. Lifestyle, environment pose problems to health By GI.ENN1S ZII.M OTTAWA (CP) Everyone wants good health but North Americans put too much and probably too much money, too in curing disease rather than trying to prevent it, says H. L. Laframboise, director- general of the federal health department's long-range plan- ning branch. In an article in a magazine for doctors, he said his person- al view, one not necessarily that of the department, was that there should be a reclassi- fication of the health field. He proposed four classifica- tions: or the persona] responsibility each person must take for his own health. or the actions by society to preserve clean air and water, measures against pollution and protection of food and drug quality, foi example. care organization or the present system of healtl services and treatment. -Basic human biology clinical application, or search. "This framework gives more balanced view of the health field than the tradition al divisions of prevention, diag nosis, therapy and rehahilita USC socks An 85-year old retired Sas kateliewan farmer has learnc to knit because he was bore and "Dr. Hitschmanova needs' stockings for children." .H sends his socks, beautifull knitted and pressed, to the Ic ca] Unitarian Service Commi tee depot at regular interval Local USC Depot atidresse may be obtained from US Headquarters, 56 Sparks Stree Ottawa KIP 5B1.

Among these grave problems Mr. Laframboise mentioner. lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease and cirrhosis of .the liver. The relation of these dis- eases to smoking, drinking and overeating is generally acknow- he said.
