Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 21, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 25 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I have an answer to the woman who complained about never getting any time off. Her retired husband does anything he pleases (or nothing at all) and she is still "In The Harness." Her final line real- ly got to me. It was, "Will I EVER enjoy the luxury of leisure Tell her, "Yes. And it may be sooner than you think. Your time off will come when your husband dies I know, because it happened to me. My wonderful man dropped dead of a heart attack three weeks after he retired. His golf clubs and fishing gear are stacked neatly in the back closet. I will dispose of them soon. I can't bear to have them around. I stand by the stove and eat. Sitting alone at the table is more than I can bear. My housework, laundry and cook- ing take no time at all. It's amazing that the difference between one and two can seem like 50. I've got plenty of leisure time now but believe me, I hate it. I'd give anything to be "too busy" again. So. think, women, before you complain. Know Dear Friend: I'm sure your letter will hit mighty close to home for many of my readers. Thank you for writing it. Dear Ann Landers: I am a 16-year-old high school junior who has been dating for two years. I am a mature person and feel more like a woman than a child. The problem is my parents. I know they mean well, but there's this one thing they do that drives me out of my gourd. I guess you might say we are a family of kissers from my grandparents on down. I don't mind, except when I leave the house with a date. Both Mom and Dad insist on kissing me goodbye. Last night Ted and I were leaving and Mom was upstairs. Dad shouted, "Mother, come down and kiss Margaret goodbye." You would have thought I was joining the Foreign Legion. Ted looked embarrassed. I felt like a fool. I'd appreciate it if you'd print my letter and your opi- nion so they will see it. Tell them I'm A Big Girl Now Dear Girl: Accept the fact that your parents are kissers and make no apologies for them. They sound like affec- tionate folks. smears nothing dramatic' Gynaecological problems outlined By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer "Women and gynaecology are said Dr. Ronald Lacey to nearly 80 women at the Women's Place seminar Wednes- day evening at the Lethbridge Public Library He explained that gynaecology is from a Greek word meaning "woman" and a gynaecologist is a specialist in the diseases of women. "Obstetrics, which deals primarily with maternity, and gynaecology are so closely related that, in fact, both are one." Gynaecologist Dr. Lacey out- lined some of the most common problems these specialists are faced with many of which are related to pregnancy. "With more and more people becoming involved in family planning, contraceptive problems are he said. In regards to sterilization, he said the legal situation has altered so now it's a matter strictly between the doctor, hus- band and wife. Then, there is the "thorny" problem of therapeutic abortion which always has moral, religious and other overtones. "The major problem in the ex- treme of pregnancy is infer- tility But. in about 30 per cent of most cases the male is the in- fertile partner, said Dr. Lacey. Menstrual disorders fall in the classes of either too little, which is often associated with ovulation problems, too heavy or too fre- quent. "Bleeding between periods should always be checked as it can often be a sign of cancer. Also, bleeding after menopause could be a serious problem." Dr. Lacey pointed out that cancer screening is being used more and more, particularly for detecting breast cancer. "Pap smears are commonly taken. Most women think a smear is something dramatic but it's very simple All it is. is a pre-cancer test used to reduce instances." There are many factors which have bearings on vaginal infec- tions a hot. dry climate, panty hose, wearing trousers all the time, antibiotics and the "sexual revolution we live in today "Venereal diseases are becom- ing an increasing problem with epidemics breaking out in some places." he said. He claimed the primary causes of the climbing VD rate were the introduction to the pill as well as the sexual revolution. "Many patients come in with vague and numerous complaints and the majority of them are reluctant to discuss anything Everybody is counselling on sex. Now people are becoming more aware, in fact, sometimes too aware, and are led into believing misconceptions, creating problems which are non ex- istent." Other resource people attending the seminar were Dr. Barbara Lacey. physician: Dr. Lloyd Johnston, gynaecologist: and Dr. R G. Hall, obstetrician, who later led discussion groups Women fugitives outsmarting FBI WASHINGTON (AP) Somewhere in the world, two young women fugitives may be chalking up another year of success in outsmarting the FBI. It was four years ago last month when Susan Edith Saxe and Katherine Ann Power were added to the FBI list of ten most wanted fugitives The FBI still has no solid clue to their whereabouts. "We haven't had anything good on them for months." said FBI spokesman Tom Coll. "Every day we get tips but nothing concrete." The two women were added to the list on Oct. 17. 1970, after they were charged in connection with the murder of a Boston policeman during a bank holdup. Each faces federal charges of unlawful interstate flight, theft of government property and bank robbery. They are the only women on the "ten most wanted" list Coll said FBI officials believe both have fled the country TURNED TO FRIENDS FBI officials say Miss Saxe and Miss Power, both 24. and four male militants on the most wanted list undoubtedly turned to sympathetic friends in the underground for help in eluding their pursuers The agency boasts that it captures its most wantec fugitives an average of 147 days after adding them to the list But all six militants now on the list have evaded capture for more than four years Patricia Hearst, the Califor- nia kidnap victim who later declared allegiance to her Symbionese Liberation Army captors, may never be listed in the most wanted category Coll said the purpose of the list is "saturation publicity."
