Local Vacuum Salesmen Licenced, Represent Reputable Canadian Firm By MARILYN ANDERSON Herald Family Editor Our attention has been drawn to our issue of Satuf- day, March 28, 1970 in which an article appeared in the Family living section to the effect that vacuum salesmen were operating Illegally in Lethbridge. We have now as- certained that the salesmen referred to were in fact li- cenced, and that these were local salesmen operating as part of a reputable nation wide sales organization which has been operating in Canada for many years. We have also ascertained that DO householder was ask- Eight Brides Under Fourteen In Saskatchewan SASKATOON (CP) -If there's an average bride in Sas- katchewan she would be 23.4 years old and her mate would be 25.9.

We take the earliest oppor- tunity of correcting our error Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: As I rode tile bus yesterday I noticed two teen-agers making fun of a woman who had just boarded. She was unusually homely and shabbily dress- ed. The children were laughing at her and she knew it. My heart ached. It brought back some painful memories of my own miserable childhood. I was a very ugly child. I knew it even before I went to school. Friends and1 relatives tried1 to cheer up my moth- er by saying things as, "Don't worry. She'll probably grow up to be a nice looking girl." In high school I kept to myself because I thought I was too ugly to deserve anyone's friendship. Whenever peo- ple tried to be nice I was sure U was because they pitied me. One day I found a note in my locker that read, "You are the ugliest person on earth. If I had a face like yours I'd kill myself." I was so shattered I couldn't hold my head up in class. The teacher noticed and took me aside and asked me if I was ill. I told her "No just tired." I was still clutching the note in my hand. She sensed something was wrong and reached for the note and read it. That day my life changed. That wonderful woman made me see I was letting life beat me down" and it was my own the fault of the cruel and thoughtless few. She made me see that I was my own worst enemy and it was up to me to be participant in life instead of a a person's feelings about himself are more important fflan what others think of him. The purpose of this letter is to give hope and con- solation. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a friend who has turn- ed into ac insufferable bore ever since she hit on "cure" for a backache. According to this nut her back ached all Hie time- sometimes so bad she couldn't do her housework. She read in an old almanac about "me stone and water cure" getting into a tub of hot water and letting the water run a pile of plain, ordinary stones. Now that's all she ever talks about. Of course, she gels lots of attention because almost everybody's back aches. Tell her to shut up and stop making a fool of Marie. DEAR MARIE: Relaxing in a hot tub can't hurt and It might help. Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.
