Tueirfoy, Moy 1970 THE LFTHBdlDGE HERALD 17 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Congratulations on the good ad- vice you gave the woman whose husband had introduced1 his family to nudism. You said, "O.K. in those countries where nudity is part of the culture. Nix on the idea here. Our family had a somewhat similar experience last year disastrous consequences. In our case we did not visit a nudist camp. It was more subtle than that. My husband began reading some kooky articles. The next tiling I knew he and our 17-year-old daughter were parading around the house in the absolute raw. It was apparent that they had an unhealthy interest in viewing each other's unclothed bodies. The more they tried to pretend otherwise, the more obvious- it became. I finally got through to him that he was promoting a very unhealthy thing and that he had to stop before he ruined the girl's life. Then I spoke to our daughter in a calm, non-assaultive manner. She was surprisingly receptive. With a mighty effort the three of us broke out of that terrible trap. How our marriage survived I'll never know, but it did. I hope you will repeat that advice from time to time, Ann. It was pure gold. DEAR BEAUMONT: Not all readers agreed with my ad- vice. Some called me a dirty old lady. Thanks for your comments. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You think you've heard every- thing? Not quite. Listen to this: I am going to marry a man who has been divorced from his wife for three years. Her problem, nymphomania. She had to drag every man to bed from the Ifr-year-old kid who carried her groceries to the vice-president of the Telephone Company. No matter who caone to then- home to fix something she saw to it that he fixed everything. When Gene divorced her he took custody of their two children (now 8 and He agreed to pay her a modest which he did not have to do, but he's a decent guy and wanted to see that she always had food and a roof. I am a career girl and am not the type to stay home keep house. Gene has had a succession of housekeepers, one dumber than the next at salaries you wouldn't believe. Yesterday he asked me what I thought about hiring his ex-wife. She is a good cook and the kids really do love her. At first I thought he had lost his mind, but after he de- the advantages, I came to the conclusion that it might not be a bad idea. What do you think? DEAR ALDINA: I 'think he HAS lost his mind, and if you agree to this bizarre arrangement, you have lost yours. Give in or lose him when a guy gives you (Ms line, look out!

City More Realistic Education Requested By Native Women EDMONTON (CP) The Voice of Alberta Native Wom- en's Society called for establish- ment at kindergarten and nurs- ery school programs in all In- dian Heserves and Metis col- onies. Native women, the society told the Alberta Royal Commis- iion on Educational Planning, jhould receive special training to enable them to staff such schools. The society also said there is a need to teach home economics in all schools, but the course should be altered in schools at- MACKENZIE'S Diamond Merchants t KOINA IASKATOON MOOSE JAW HINCEAlttST CAIGARY IETHBRIDGE IN LETHBRIDGE: 613 4th AVENUE SOUTH PHONE tended by native children.

Homemakers Valuable OTTAWA (CP) Home- maker service should be seen as a valuable, flexible part of a community approach to healtli needs, Anne Bums, educational consultant for the federal health department, said here. She was speaking to about 10 visiting homemakers and foster mothers from across Canada at the first Canadian conference organized to examine training and standards needed for a variety of health and welfare programs. The meeting was under1 the auspices of the Certified Visit- ing Homemakers Society of Ottawa and Le Service d1 Auxil- iaries Familiales du Service Social de 1'Outaouais. Mrs. Hilda McClenaghan of the Lethbridge Family Service is the local delegate to the con- ference. Female Discrimination Ends With Ontario Bill TORONTO (CP) Proposed Ontario legislation to end job discrimination against women is courageous said Judy La- Marsh, but it could go further. Miss LaMarsh, former secre- tary of state in the federal Pearson Liberal government said in an interview here that a bill introduced in the legislature "demonstrates that the provincial government is far more aware of what's going on in this field than is the federal government." Under the bill, given first reading, no employer may dis- criminate against a woman on the basis of sex in employing or promoting a worker. It also provides for maternity leave without loss of job seniority in companies with more than 25 employees. Miss LaMarsh didn't like that section. All employers should required to provide maternity leave she said. Such leave should be without pay. Theresa Lee of the New Democratic Party's women lib- eration committee said of this: "There's no reason why women shouldn't be paid. After all, bearing children is one of the most important functions in our society." Js n, Mrs. N. G. Kirk and Mrs. J.. R.
