Wtdniufey, May 27, WO THI IITHIHIDOI HHAID Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: While in the Poet Office Build- ing this afternoon I had to go to the bathroom. I started through the door when a security officer stopped me and asked, "Whore do you think you're I said, "To the washroom He looked startled and mumbled, "I'm ma'am, I thought you were a man." ThU has happened to me before and I bate it! I'm 5'10 and weigh 165 pounds. My hair is smartly styled In a short bob because it looks best thto way. I'm more com- fortable in slacks and pantsuits and wear them whenever I can. Ann, I am a married woman and the mother of two lovely children. I have no masculine tendencies whatever and I am 100 per cent normal. What can I do about this Dear Up: A woman who is 5'10, weighs 165 pounds, wears a short bob and pantsuits is asking for it. If you'd lose some weight, let your hair grow and put on a skirt, you'd be less apt to be taken for a fella. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a girl, 14. My mother won't let me do anything on my own. No matter what I do she' has to do it. over or cut in and "help." I can't make a bed to suit her or sew a hem or iron a blouse. She finds fault with everything and makes me feel like a failure. I wrote a letter tonight and asked Mom for a stamp. She asked who I had written to. When I said, "Ann she -got mad and yelled, "I hope you told Ann Landers that you have your own phone, a new portable TV for your bedroom, a closet full of clothes and that we are sending you to Europe on a student tour next year." When I didn't answer she screamed, "I can't imagine why you'd be writing to Ann Landers. With all the money we've spent on you, you should be the happiest girl in the world." I tore up that first letter and wrote this: one Instead. I'm sure you know my problem. Can you Many Things DEAR TOO: Your mother is the one who needs help and unfortunately, she didn't ask for it. You sound like a smart cMck who knows the score. I urge you to continue to do your best and not let your mother destroy your in- itiative or self-esteem. I hope every mother who reads this and sees herself will do something about it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Once In a while someone asks you to re-run a letter they think is especially good. I am asking such a favor today. I am a realtor who Mas earned1 this particular column in my wallet for several' years. I always show it to the widows who ask me to sell their homes. I need a fresh copy. Please, DEAR M.B.: I'll do it. But have this one plasticized, DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband died four ago and my daughter begged me to sell my house and live with them. I was grief-stricken and lonely when I said, it was the biggest mistake I ever made. My house is gone, my furniture is gone and I'm a root in someone else's house. My grandchildren are Am- reapecttul and I feel "in their way." To hear Stem talk I wonder how I could have lived so long and -learned little. I was once a friendly, pleasant person. Now I feel like a sour, useless old woman. I gave up everything dear to me and I really didn't have to.

Surgical Nurses., Human Monitors By KARIN MOSER MONTREAL (CP) Operat- ing room nurses are "human monitors" who must be alert to dangers: to patients, a Halifax doctor said here. Dr. Robert F. Scharf, director of the emergency department at Victoria General Hospital, was addressing 800 nurses from all parts of Canada at the first na- tional conference of operating room nurses. "Sure, there's lots of equip- ment on display out he said, referring to an exhibition hall where the latest in surgical and operating room equipment was being shown. "All sorts of tubes and pumps and machines and motors, but not one of them can be re-pro- grammed immediately to meet an emergency situation in the operating room. "But you can be.... "Do you realize that m one lospital a few years ago work- men installed an air condition- ng unit to remove dust from the surgical area but by mis- take reversed the fans and in- stead of the unit taking dust ou of the operating room it was blowing into it? "And it took two years to dis- cover1 the error." MUST WATCH CLOSELY Dr. Scharf, said nurses mus be on the lookout for persons "such as a dentist" who migh not be familiar with scrubbing procedures in operating rooms "He's walking into a sterile area without knowing that otliei rules apply." Earlier, Mary Taylor, co- chairman oftheOperating Room Nurses for the Province of Quebec and operating room supervisor at the Montreal Chil dren's Hospital, warned that the operating room nurse may be- come extinct in five years if a training program is not put into effect quickly, perhaps for po- tential registered nurses in jun- ior colleges. "Right now, the student nurse gets about two weeks" exposure in the surgical Miss Taylor said in an interview.
