HWAID 21 Ann Land ers No Indian discrimination in south., says spokesman DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have always been ashamed and embarrassed because of my handwriting. II looks like the scrawling of a nine-year-old kid (I'm 27 and For this reason I type aU personal notes and my name and the date in longhand. Last week a friend told my mother she thought it was very slobby of me to have typed a condolence message to her sister, I was really hurt. I spent a lot of lime and thought composing that letter and to have been criticized for it cut me to the- quick. Will you please tell me if it is, as she said, "slobby" to type a personal Scratch llelene DEAR HJSN: A typewritten, bit: personally signed per- sonal letter makes more sense than a handwritten one which is illegible. What IS however, is to complain to a young woman's mother about a thing like that. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have never written to you be- fore and am surprised that I am doing so nov.-, but I couldn't Jet today's column pass without commenting. I refer to the letter from the woman who described psychiatri-sls as and "charlatans." I have been in therapy for three years and have encour- aged otter members of mV family to get help.

As in any other profession, you must he lucky enough U> get the right doctor Sometimes it t-akes shopping. (It did in my case.) It also takes a willingness to work WITH the doctor at the most difficult job in the old ideas and comfortable prejudices. I'd like to sec this letter in print.

Indians with qualifications similar to white persons have equal opportunity for work, scid li. I. Eklund, employment- relocation officer. He said the only lime a form of discrimination is evident is about 25 to 30 Indians described as "skid row" or "alcoholics" attempt to find over-night accommodation. This is the type of person no one wants in Iheir home or plaee of business and who finds it difficult to find lodging. He said a few of these types arc found both white and Indian anywhere. Wlivn the news media charges j discrimination, those are the ones that are generally in- volved, Mr. Eklund said. The majority of the "skid row" types are older men who have followed their type of life so long it is almost impossible to rehabilitate them. Admitting there are some younger natives among the skid row types, he said any form of discrimination ends against them once they have been rehabilitated and have proven their worth. love is, making friends ifltb her brother.
