Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wcdriesdov, May 17, 1972 THE HrlAlD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 was mystified by your reply to No Name Lady, the girl with two lovers who didn't know about each other. She saw Mr. A on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and Mr. B on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. She signed her letter "Never On Sunday." Why did you tell her "a routine like yours could kill a girl How is her routine different from a wilo who has a hjgmy-sexed husband? Moreover, this girl really enjoys herself and in return she is the happy recipient of many of the creature comforts she could not otherwise afford. If this could "kill a girl" what a way to go! Any comment in rebuttal? Question DEAR MIAMI: At least 200 readers have asked me the same question, and frankly I don't have an answer. Substitute the word "exhaust" for "kill." That takes care of some of the egg on my lace. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What would you do if you re- ceived an invitation to a party in honor of a couple's Silver Wedding Anniversary sent by their married children, nicely engraved, along with a handwritten card which read: "Please do not send a gift. We would prefer a cash donation which vill help us send our parents on a trip to Europe." My husband and I were appalled. We have never heard of anything like this and don't know what to do. Will you kindly advise us? The Connecticut Yankees DEAR YANKS: If you want to attend the party, by all means do so. And if you are inclined to send a gift, do thai, too. As for the children's suggestion that you contribute to a fund to help send their parents to Europe ignore if. When the good Lord was handing out common sense they must have been out to lunch. Are drugs O.K. if you learn how to control them? Can (hey be of help? The answers are in Arm Landers' new booklet Straight Dope On Drugs." For each booklet ordered send a dollar bill, plus a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope, (16 cents to Ann Landers, Box 3346, Chicago, Illinois 606M. Please send inquiries and requests to Landers Reader- mail Department. Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111. 60611. Widow aids 1 minister TORONTO (CP) In licr low rental senior citizen's apartment on the fringe of (downtown Toronto, Pnl Barrett spends a lot of time on tho telephone. A 70-year-old widow, she acts ns a trouble-shooter for Donald Mncdonald, minister of energy, mines and resources, in liis Toronto Rosedale constituency, helping residents grapple with tlieir problems. On Sftlurdays and Wednes- day evenings Mrs. Barrett can be found at a service centre opened by Mr. Macdonald in the Cabbagetown district. At other limes, her lelephono rings. She jokes about taking re- venge on a priest and a Salva- fion Army officer who keep re- ferring their problems to her. But she obviously enjoys her job. "The men who are elected can't do she says. "They are very busy men. Peo- ple like myself can look after many of the problems our- selves." FOUGHT OVER. PENSION Mrs. Barrett became fami- liar with the workings of gov- ernment agencies when she spent 25 years convincing the pension authorities that her late husband's physical and mental disabilities were caused by war service. McamvhUe, she worked in stores and a factory and ran bingo games to support her seven daughters. Since her husband's death 14 years ago, she lias become in- volved in social work through church agencies and communi- ty associations. "I'm jusl plain interested in other people and their lems." she says. "I love this work.1' DO-IT-YOURSELF STORE Housed in a bare, unheated warehouse oasemenl in downtown Toronto, the Karma Co-op opened in January with about 25 members, Now, 180 families take advantage of the food co-op's low prices by paying a member- ship fee.
