Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am going with a young woman and am considering marriage, but she has a sense of humor that drives me nuts. I never know what she is going to do next. I could write a book about this gill's looniness, but I realize your space is limited so til just give you an example of her latest idea of a joke. I am a professional man and I do a considerable amount of public speaking. Last night I was the guest speaker for a local church group. As the minister was introducing me, I glanced down at my friend who was seated in the front row -with her wig on backwards, a set of huge false teeth in her mouth - the kind kids buy in a novelty shop. She had crossed her eyes and was waving a small flag. Naturally I broke up. It was all I could do to pull myself together and get into the speech. On the positive side, she's a wonderful person, completely devoted to me and I want to marry her. How does one deal with a weird sense of humor? I'm dead serious about this, Ann. I need a workable solution. - M. DEAR M.: If the clown insists on accompanying you to your speaking engagements make sure she sits in the back. If she sneaks up front and acts up - have her bounced. He who laughs last -. DEAR ANN LANDERS: What on earth is wrong with a good looking girl, 26 years of age, who spends a fortune on clothes, goes to the beauty shop every week for a manicure and hair set - and who, even when she opens her mouth to smile, shows she has several missing teeth? I have always been a person who minds her own business, but I like this girl very much and I think someone should tell her that her need of dental care is spoiling her looks. Would she consider it an act of friendship? Or should I M.Y.O.B.? - Spokane Friend DEAR SPOKE: Attractive people who neglect their teeth are usually afraid of dentists. This girl probably needs to be reassured. If you can suggest to her the name of a dentist who is competent and gentle, it might help. If she doesn't follow through, you will at least have tried. * * * ' DEAR ANN LANDERS: Do you have space for just one more letter from a pot - smoker, or to be more accurate-an ex pot-smoker? I quit smoking after a few months of pleasant puffing because one day I had to admit I couldn't remember my own address - my phone number or my friend's name. It was a frightening experience to discover I was no longer in control of my mind. To put it bluntly, I was all screwed up. It took me four days to get back to normal. After that experience I concluded pot was no good for me. I haven't touched a joint since. Some of my friends say they nave been smoking dope for two years and have never had a bum trip. Well, bully for them, but here is one cat that can't handle it and I'm thankful I learned without lousing myself up completely. - Cheap Lesson. DEAR LESSON*: You say, "Bully for them?" I say, "Bully for you!" Thanks for writing. TOP TWELVE 45 R.P.M. LEISTER'S MAIL ORDERS! Tick off the selections you wont end Mnd te ui. You'll receive your record* lor only $1.00 each.

What is it? What does it do? In reality, the elongated title belongs to what is commonly known as the Order of St. John, or the St. John Ambulance Brigade. Most people have heard of the great Orders of Chivalry which existed in the middle ages, but only some of them still survive today, and only as coveted honorary distinctions. The Order of St. John is the only one of these Orders which Etill does the job for which it was originally formed. It is not only an order of chivalry to which members are admitted by its sovereign head, Her Majesty, The Queen, but also an active national charity with branches throughout the British Commonwealth. It is a working order of charitably minded men and women to which members may belong only under Her Majesty's authority. Tod ay, the organization's charitable works are expressed principally, though not exclusively, through its two foun dations, the St. John Ophthal mic Hospital in Jerusalem, and the St. John Ambulance Association and Brigade. Originally founded by the Knights Hospitallers, one of the great medieval crusading orders, Rome is now the headquarters of what is known as the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, the parent and strictly Roman Catholic body from which the Order of St. John is derived. In England, the order is Christian and non - denominational, and there are three other North Continental Orders, all derived from the same parent stem, which are strictly Protestant. Though independent, these five orders maintain close and friendly liaison with each other, and share a common heritage of history, traditions and ideals. The charitable work of the Order now is expressed principally through its two Foundations. The St. John Ophthalmic Hospital in Jerusalem, originally founded in 1882, and rebuilt in 1960, was designed to serve as a consulting ophthalmic hospital for the whole of the Middle East. It gives free treatment to very large numbers of patients. Under the personal direction of the Hospitaller of the Order, it is staffed and equipped to very high standards and will bear comparison with any ophthalmic hospital in the world. It works as part of a great research campaign which has made much progress in the search for an effective vaccina against trachoma, the most widespread disease which causes blindness in the world. In Canada, the St. John Ambulance Association and Brigade operates firstly to spread a knowledge of first aid, home nursing and allied subjects as widely as possible among the general public and industry, and to issue certificates in these subjects which are recognized by government; and to provide a service to the public through a uniformed and disciplined body of trained first aiders and nurses, men and women, all volunteers, who give up their time to be on duty wherever crowds collect or casualties may be expected. The Alberta association will hold its provincial conference in Lethbridge this weekend for the first time sines 1864 with pre-registration tonight. Over 100 delegates from all parts of the province are expected. CULTIVATE POPPY Turkey has an estimated 70,000 farmers who cultivate the opium poppy. CASH BINGO ST.

BASIL'S MEN'S CLUB Recently I was speaking to a group of ladies from the western areas of the Milk River district. Labelling of Canadian fabrics, how to classify, use and care for them were under discussion. The packaging and labelling bill, Bill C-180, is through the Commons and into the Senate. It gives Ottawa broad authority to: -Control sizes and shapes of containers. -Ban packages filled in such a way that the customer is misled as to quantity. -Deal with false labelling (pictures, etc. which give misleading impressions). -Require every packaged item sold in Canada to carry manufacturer's name and address. There are other details, but this gives us enough to send up a rousing cheer for Consumer Affairs Minister, Ron Bas-ford. The Trustworthy Consumer? Consumerism has become a byword. But people need to take responsibility..Take the case of the Ottawa St. Laurent Mall. When it opened in 1967, 352 Wins Top Award TORONTO (CP) - Lorraine Smith, a 20-year-old key punch operator from Suburban Agin-court, was awarded the "grand prior badge "-t h e highest award in the cadet corps of the St. John Ambulance Brigade- at the annual cadets inspection. Miss Smith, who wants to become a private secretary, is the first girl in the organization in Metro Toronto to have earned 12 different efficiency certificates in three years successive service. strollers were provided for mothers of toddlers. By 1968 all but 2 had been stolen or damaged beyond repair. That year 50 were rented for the Christmas season and 25 of those vanished. They bought 28 more and only 2 remain. Women berate the Mall Management on the Ottawa hot line shows for being so cheap as to not supply strollers, but may consumers along with misleading advertisers need lessons in honesty. � � * Some people are like wheelbarrows - they don't go anywhere unless pushed. Some are like canoes - they need to be paddled. Some are like kites - keep a string on them or they fly away. Some are like kittens - more contented when petted.

Then there are those who are like good watches-open faced, pure gold, quietly busy, and full of good works. * "Alberta Cleanup" is a good work. Have you helped to make it complete?
