Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 12, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, Novumbtr 13, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDICRS: In a recent column you printed assorted facts to imply that women are superior to men. Like most women, ycu present only those facts which support your position and conveniently ignore the rest. You state that women live longer than men. True. But are you aware that Ihe American male ranks 37lh compared with the males of oilier nations? This would tend to suggest Uiat there are socio-cultural factors involved in this compari- son. You also state Uiat more men die from heart disease than women. True. Bui more women die from cerebral strokes. And we know that even though more men die from lung cancer, this disease has increased among women nearly 50 per cent in the last 20 years. Dr. Estclle Ramcy stales that more men commit suicide than women. True. But she neglects to mention that more women ATTEMPT suicide. And according to the present Na- tional Health Survey's report, "Selected Symptoms of Psy- chological women had significantly higher rales than men for every symptom. The symptoms investigated were insomnia, nifihlmares, perspiring hands, headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations, and feelings of impending ner- vous breakdown. I am sure you won't print this letter hut 1 j feel better for having written Monroe, La. DEAR MONROE: Thanks for the facts. And now may t suggest the reason so many women suffer from insomnia, nightmares, perspiring hands, headaches, dizziness, heart pal- pitations, and feelings of impending nervous breakdown is MEN. And I'm not kidding. DEAR ANN LANDERS: The letter from the 17-year-old who fantasized about his death in an automobile accident was one of UK most blood-chilling but effective pieces of writing I have ever read. Thank you for printing it, Ami. Here is another bit of fantasy. If you think it has value, publish it because it is 95 per cent true. The only sentence that is an invention is the first one. Dear 17 and Too Young To Die: 1 an: Uie old lady you chose to pass on the highway at the wrong moment. I would give anything if I could trade places with you. I am 67 and have known for some time that 1 will die within a year from an incurable illness. I am able to function at present but it is just a mailer of time before I mil be bed-ridden and then the agony of wasting away. What a cruel trick of fate thai a person who would welcome death is denied it while a young lad such as you so full of the exuberance of life, with the whole world at' bis feel, should be snuffed out like a candle in the word to the young and healthy, to those who have dreams and hopes: savor each moment, enjoy what you have. Cherish every day. But be careful. Live not for the mo- rS, but for the years ahead that can be yours. -Alaska DEAR ALASKA: Thank you for a beautiful bit of phil- osophy It will please you to know that the letter you wrote about" will continue to be read by teen-agers al over the country More than 100 high school editors asked for permis- sion to reprint that letter in their school papers.
