Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: May I speak in behalf of a per- secuted minority that has been discriminated against for years, but no one takes up our cause? 1 am talking about "The Boss's Daughter." We are supposed to know everything about the business including what is going to happen in advance, because we are The Boss's Daughter. We are expected to come in early and stay late if there is anything that needs to be done. No overtime of course because we are The Boss's Daughter. We may not leave for a dental or doctor appointment or for any of the legitimate reasons the other employees take off tor because we are The Boss's Daughter. We are not included in office talk or any of the fun things that happen because we are The Boss's Daughter. ff we make a mistake we get twice as much heat from our superiors and then when we get home at night we get more of the same because we are The Boss's Daughter. Sign Me, Fed Up Because I Am The Boss's Daughter. DEAR FED: An employee who has as many complaints as you can't be very effective. Furthermore, no girl would stay with a job she hates so thoroughly unless she was darned sure she couldn't do better someplace else not even The Boss's Daughter. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please print this letter for the mothers of daughters who are 13 or 14, look like 18 or 19 and act like 25. At this very moment a good friend of mine, a really good guy just back from Vietnam (and hungrier than he should have been) is sweating out a charge of statutory rape.

With money, said Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova, "you can build cities but you can't bring back mothers who have been slain in front of their children." Dr. Hitschmanova, executive director of the Unitarian Ser- vice Committee is in Lethbridge on her yearly trans Canada fund-raising tour, which takes her from Newfoundland to Brit- ish Columbia. The USC needs to meet its goal of million. HEARTBREAKING JOURNEY Before embarking on this year's campaign, Dr. Hitsch- manova made her twentieth trip around the world.

About a.m. the girl's parents came home and caught them in the act. The girl yelled, and her father called the police. They took her to the hospital for an exam- ination and the cops took the guy to the station. The real villain here is not the boy or "Miss Round Heels" but the mother for allowing her 14-year-old daughter (she lied and said she was 19) to get herself up like a tramp and have free run of an empty house. I would like to see this letter printed because it seems there is more of this sort of thing going on now than before. Thank you, Ann. Disgusted With It DEAR G: I agree, the mother is to blame.
