Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband hasn't worked for over a year. He gambled our joint savings ac- count and cashed in a life in- surance policy which also went down the drain. Here's the question: I read somewhere that a wife's earn- ings are her own. My hus- band says that when our in- come tax refund comes (about ?400) I owe him half. I told him the entire amount belongs to me since he did DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband sad I have been married three weeks. We just had our first big fight. We've agreed to let you be the ref- eree and your decision will be final. Seven daj-s after we re- turned from our honeymoon Ben started to read the news- paper at the breakfast table. I told him I consider this an insult and I asked him to stop. Ben says it's a lifelong habit ar.d I have no right to make such a demand. He also not work this past year. He says he is entitled to half be- cause I used him as a deduc- tion by filing a joint return. Do I owe him the money? Ours Or Mine DEAR H.O. Or M.: In a state that has community property laws, your husband may well be entitled to half. If there are not community property laws the money might belong to you. Ask a lawyer. claims he is oot much of a morning communicator and it is better for our relationship if I try not to force him to be chatty. I say, now that he's a married man, he should be mature enough to drop his bachelor type habits. What do you say? DEAR BETTY: I say now that you're a married woman, you should be mature enough to leave him alone. Some people are not morning com- municators and for them the newspaper can be a blessing. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Who would have dreamed that after nearly 20 years of rais- ing children I would need help, but I do and here goes: My husband is a professor. We are both nearly 50 and have three teen-agers. My husband has a chance nsxt year to enjoy a sabbatical abroad. Ee has been accept- ed to work and study in a distinguished institute. It is an hcncr snd an opportunity to advance his career. cannot afford to take all three children, but we ex- peeied the two older ones to be in college, which would have teen ideal. Now the problem. Our Number One Son's grades just dropped be- low the required level and he has lost his free tuition privi- leges. The next child refuses even to consider college. Both tried drugs last year but claim they have quit. By next fall both will be 18, which is the legal majority in our state. But maturity is an- other thing. So is parental concern. What should we do? Mere DEAR G.M.: Your husband should not allow the kids to louse up a wonderful oppor- tunity. I have a hunch that if he sacrificed the ye a r abroad for them, nothing would be gained by it. More- over, he'd harbor the resent- ment for a long tims to come. And so would you. My advice is to borrow the money and take them all. DEAR ANN LANDERS- First let me say I hare tv.o wo-Kderful parents. They mean well, but I am 2S, have been happily married for eight years and we have four children. We built a house that was fin- ished a few months ago, about 40 miles from where my parents live. We expect them here every Sunday. My father is a pleasure and PACIFIC wash people FREE EXTERIOR WASH with gasoline purchase of 5 gallons or more (Exterior wash 50 with gasoline purchase of 5 gallons or less) Complete interior and exterior wash 25 with 15 gallon purchase JT.75 with 10-15 gallon purchase 25 with 5-10 gallon purchase S2.50 with 3-5 gallon purchase S2.75 with no SUPERSONIC CAR WASH 1819- 3 Ave S.

Extra charge for commercial credit cards gives the children a great dsal of attention, but my mother can't sit down for five minutes. She is either real-- ranging the cabinets, vacuum- ing, polishing the furniture or tidying up a closet. I am a good housekeeper and don't need any help. I've mention- ed my feelings to her but to no avail. Meanwhile my hus- band becomes more irritated by the minute. Ee interprets her activities as a slam, against my housekeeping. I want my mother to be a guest in our home, relax and enjoy her grandchildren. Any suggestions? Enough For Us DEAR NEAT: Your moth- er's non-stop vacuuming, pol- ishing and tidying up has nothing to do with your hotee- keeping. It is a manisfesta- tion of her discomfort, her inability to be a part of the family. These activities are an excuse to isolate herself. Once you and your hiiskar.d understand this, YOU will be able to relax and let Mrs. Clean do her own thing.

(AP) Monson in ifae grocery store, can't remember the last time she was up at dawn and smiles at talk about weath- erbeaten farm wives in ging- ham dresses slaving over hot stoves. Gingham, in fact, is what this 36-year-old grain farmer's wife uses to cover her dining-room walls. She wears brightly-col- ored pants outfits, and she says her hours are no different than those of any mother of two small children. Glory's mother cooked for 15 hired men, an all-day chore. But because of mechanization, Glory has only one hired hand to feed. Her mother canned SCO or 600 quarts of meat and vege- tables, enough to feed her fam- ily for a year. Glory makes jelly and freezes about 50 quarts of vegetables from her garden. But she wheels a cart once a week in a grocery store just like her suburban and city counterparts. There are, of course, farm wives who still spend their time much the way Glory Monson's mother did. But the United Scales agriculture department reports thai, on the whole, the lifestyle of farm wives is chang- ing. They have more spare time and are filling it with study, travel, and arts, volunteer work, and off-the-farm First 30- woman marine Sgr. Maj. Bertha Billep spruces up alongside husband. Bill, who holds the same rank. She recently retired at an elaborate ceremony after becoming the first woman to serve 30 years in the U.S. Marines.

Further details will be an- nounced at a later date. STAY IN SCHOOL Farm women are becoming better-educated. Those 25 and older however average of 12 years of schooling. As late as 1960, farm wives that old had an average of only 9.2 years of schooling. Thirty-five per cent of farm, women between 20 and 64 seek and obtain jobs off the farm. f w.frtf Tncia Duncan receives the origins! art for -R' Whimsy._SBnd_ytttif8 lotftispaper At the same time, the depart- ment says, fewer than 2d per cent of American farms have chickens or milk cows. That means fewer farm women milk, tend chickens or gather eggs. More farm women buy their milk, butter, eggs and chickens at the store. And many of the farms which still have milk, cows and chickens tend them mechanically. Farm kitchens are becoming mechanized, too. A look around kitchen's in Rugby, a farming cpmimunity of 3.200. shows thai dishwashers are fast taking their places beside freezers, clothes washers, dryers, blend- ers, fondue pots. "There's room for creative things says Glory Mon- son, a former teacher who in- structs a painting class, serves as secretary of the village arts council and directs the commu- nity's annual musical produc- tion. j RUN FAMILY FARM j She and her husband Bill, "A. a former university basketball star, lived in San Francisco and Sacramento, Calif., for six years. They returned to North Dakota to take over Glory's fa- ther's farm in 1967. The farm covers acres of the black soil that has made North Dakota the largest pro- ducer of durum wheat and flax in the U.S. The family lives in the same modest, three-bed- room farm house where Glory grew up. Some of the older women in the area are amused at interest among city dwellers in natural childbirth, quilting, baking, can- ing and wine-making. "When I nss a Jittls pirl somehow you felt inferior be- cause you lived on ths said Glory. "It's kind of the reverse now "My daughter is so proud of Jiving on the farm." hsalth programs, with staff and volunteers from 2S countries in attendance All those who are to partici- pate in the discussions are in the health field in their own country.
