Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, March 29, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - t3 Ann Landers Change in attitudes to women Taxation, job opportunities studies released DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've started this letter five times since January 2 and thrown it away because I Just couldn't find the right words without sounding coarse and vulgar. Today I decided to express myself as best I can and.I hope you will forgive me. In 1970 I marked a secret calendar, keeping count of how many times my husband made love to me. The grand total on December 31 was 22. This wouldn't be so bad if he were 80 years old, but, we are both 25. When I started to keep count, I made a vow to myself that I would never again make the first move or try to talk him into making love, to me which, I am ashamed to say, I had done on several occasions. I realized I had been degrading myself - like a woman of the streets. I decided if he didn't want me as much as I wanted him, our lovemaking would have no real meaning. My husband and I get along well otherwise. Our friends consider our marriage one of the best. They keep referring to us as a model couple. (Little do they know!) I am seriously considering divorce. We have no children and are both young enough to make a new life with another partner. Please advise. - Demand-Supply Crisis in San Mateo DEAR D.: It sounds to me as if you want your marriage to fail. A wife who would play this numbers game is consciously or subconsciously hoping her husband's performance will be poor so she will have a reason to dump him. Your notion that a wife who is sexually aggressive degrades herself "like a woman of the streets" gives me a small due as to the root of your problem. Married love should be just as exciting to a woman as to a man and a wife should not be ashamed to initiate it- in fact, some husbands find this immensely flattering. You need counseling, honey. You consider yourself a very sexy lady who isn't getting enough, but my bunch is that you don't know what it's all about.    DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm a secretary who shares a lovely apartment with two airline stewardesses. Last night the lights went out suddenly. We knew it was a fuse because two of us were ironing, the electric coffee pot was on, and when I plugged in the mixer to make cookies the whole place went dark. I went down and told the landlord. He very nicely said he'd put in a new fuse if I would accompany him to the basement and hold the flashlight. To make a long story short, he made a pass at me in the stairwell and I belted him in the chops. I cannot get over the nerve of him-with his lovely wife sitting upstairs in the living room! This morning we received a note saying the rent would be raised $40 a month. What should we do? - Sad Trio DEAR TRIO: Write him a note saying you are not April Fooling - that if he is serious about the raise you'll be glad to discuss the matter with his wife-in detail. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I would like to pass along my special recipe. Call it "How To Be The Perfect Mother-In-Law." The ingredients are simple: One closed eye and one mouth shut. My daughter-in-law keeps house Just like her mother. Terrible. The first time I saw the dirty dishrag wadded up in the corner of the sink I thought I'd have a heart attack. You can imagine how I felt - being an immaculate housekeeper myself. I'm sure it's been five years since she cleaned her living - room draperies or washed the curtains but I'm keeping quiet. The paint is peeling off the walls but I don't see it. My daughter-in-law thinks the world of me and we have a wonderful relationship. I know what they mean when they say, "Love is blind."-Mamma DEAR MAMMA: Also deaf and dumb. Thanks for writing. By SUSAN BECKER OTTAWA (CP) - Job" opportunities for women working for Canadian chartered banks are, aside from routine clerical ones, expanding only in select occupations, says a study done for the royal commission on the status of women. The study is one of two released Friday. The other, on the taxation of incomes of married women, outlines discriminatory provisions in present tax laws and discusses possible alternatives. Marianne Bossen, assistant professor of economics at the University of Winnipeg, says few women working in chartered banks hold even intermediate, let alone senior, management positions. Most women who had been promoted were in junior management jobs with annual salaries ranging from $5,000 to 18,000. But the study points to some changes in attitudes by bank management and says some small branches are wholly staffed by women. The study says bank management has had to admit that customers accept women bank managers more readily than some bankers accept the idea. Women had made the grade as personal loan officers, refuting the long-held belief that men do not wish to discuss their financial problems with a woman. But although women were en- tering the field of business credit, some bankers still believed that businessmen do not want to discuss credit requirements with a woman. The woman with only high school graduation was automatically hired for routine duties and her advancement depended on her drive, perseverance and luck. "A woman must be sufficiently patient and loyal or faith-inspired to stick it out in a humdrum job for at least five years Instead of looking around for something more challenging or better paying in order to prove that she is not only competent but bent on marrying the bank until retirement." Prof. Bossen says there is much truth in observations that many women are not interested in a career. "The simplicity or the uncomplicated customer contact o( some jobs suit many women perfectly, and the low remuneration for low-level routine work Better off on welfare says Metis mom EDMONTON (CP) A Metis woman with seven children said she was better off while on welfare than in her present job as a family counsellor. Bertha Clark of Fort Mac-Murray, Alta., told the Alberta Native Women's Society that as a single parent she received better medical attention for her family before she had a job. "Then I could afford to buy them glasses when they needed them or to get them prescribed drugs" through welfare. Many of the native peoples' problems are blamed on liquor, Mrs. Clark, president of the society, said. "I believe the problems come before liquor." Poor housing was the cause of family breakdowns and people turning to alcohol. She urged the women to fight for the rights of their families. "Every mother, when it comes time to speak for her and her children should have a big mouth." Mrs. Clark said mothers should listen to the advice and wishes of their children in order to "communicate very close with our youth." Govt* employees wear hot pants WINNIPEG (CP) - Female employees of the Manitoba government will be allowed to wear hot pants-the currently fashionable ultra-short shorts- only if they are covered by a skirt or dress, Civil Service Commissioner M. B. Newton has ruled. A memo he sent to heads of government departments also said pant-suits are permitted only if the tops match the bottoms, and "no top should fit too tightly." I A. TO F.O.E.

A spokesman for the office of Premier William Davis said Speaker Fred Cass was instructed to hire girls. The Grade 8 students were hired following approval at a cabinet meeting last week. The Speaker had no names on file and the job was turned over to Progressive Conservative whip Alex Carruthers, who found four girls for the jobs in his Durham riding. is satisfactory for many married women who seek only to supplement the family income. "It is probably also true that some women are not willing to take jobs that require travel or to accept transfers, even when single." In his study on taxation, Douglas G. Hartle of the University of Toronto says married women working at home are confronted with higher effective tax rates on any employment income if they enter the labor market than are single men or women. Husbands found their taxable income increased by up to $1,000 if the income of their wives was greater than $250. The higher a husband's income was, the greater the tax burden on him if his wife worked. Mr. Hartle said that if a taxable value was set on the services of housewives, it would largely remove the existing tax barrier against women working outside the home. But he says there is no feasible administrative way to determine what such a value should be. Also, under a system taxing the imputed value of housewives' services, the typical middle-income, one-worker family would carry a heavier proportion of the tax burden. In effect, the man supporting this family would pay more tax. This would put pressure on the wife to work outside the home. Mr. Hartle concedes that the idea might not be socially acceptable and suggests the alternative of reducing or eliminating the personal deduction of $1,000 allowed a spouse who is the sole support of a husband or wife. A tax credit provided for working mothers with children would offset child-care costs.
