Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 25, 1972 THI lETHBRIDCi HHAIO 17 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a girl aged 17, and I've been going with a guy 20 for over a year-and-a-half. Jimmie and I have decided I should go on the pill. We feel it is the best way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. I want to tell my mother about our decision but to be honest with you, I don't know how to broach the subject. Mom and I get along O.K. but we have never talked about anything intimate. Also, I'm afraid she might get angry and order me to quit seeing Jimmie immediately, which, of course, I would refuse to do. Please, Ann, help me find the words. Even though Mom and I are not very close I don't want to deceive her. dled Mouth DEAR M.M.: My advice is to see a doctor and learn if you should be on the pill. Maybe you ought to be using another type of contraceptive. Your question as to whether or not to inform your mother Is interesting. Why would you want to? Your decision has been made. What do you hope to accomplish? Would the state- ment be a Declaration of Independence? Or do you just want to shake her up? Think about it a while. Perhaps when you come up with the answers to these questions you'll decide to keep quiet. I hope so. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Will you please settle something that has caused more fights than I care to count? It's about dancing. My wife and I used to enjoy going to dances to- gether but we have given it up because we always end up in a fight. She claims I am out of my mind. I say she is out of hers. When I dance with a woman I act like she is my sister. When I dance with my wife I act like we are married. I expect her to reserve the close stuff for me. I think it is cheap for a married woman to dance with other men in any of the following ways' (a) Cheek-to-cheel (b) Breast-to-chest (c) Belly-to-belly (d) Knee-to knee I also believe it Is up to the woman to set the rules. Most guys will get as close as they can. How about it? In Houston DEAR HOUSTON: Since you obviously consider dancing a vertical expression of a horizontal idea, it's no wonder you and your wife are fighting about it. I see nothing evil about dancing cheek-to-cheek, breast-to-chest or belly-to-belly. That knee-to-knee business, however, is new to me. It must be the neatest trick of the year and quite a sight. (The things I learn from my DEAR ANN LANDERS: We are average people, middle Income, married three years, and we have a small child. We ire not in dire financial straits but we do have to budget our money. My husband loves to bowl and is good at it. His team buddies are all nice fellows. There was an unspoken agree- ment that any tournament money won by the team, or any money won by individuals, would be put in a kitty and spent on an evening out for the team members and their wives. The largest amount in the kitty was Now the problem: A few weeks ago my husband entered the all-city tournament. He won first prize. It was the men's singles and the purse was The tat on that money is We offered to take the team and their wives to the best place In town for dinner and danciog. We figured it would cost about They all screamed, "Not They want the prize money divided among the team members. My hus- band and I are very hurt We feel they should have settled for the evening out and we are sad about it. Please, Ann, tell us what to do. We are going to abide by your decision. -P. D. DEAR P.O.: If the team members want to get together and change the deal for FUTURE wins, that's another story. But the disposition of this prize money has already been de- termined. So divide the (less the tax you must pay) and then It would be nice if they took you and your husband out for a night on the town.

(CP Wirephoto) Live-fetus abortion rumors spur nurses to take stand OTTAWA (CP) If living fe- tuses are being delivered in op- erating rooms during abortions, nurses should be taking a stand, Nancy Garrett of the Canadian Nurses' Association said here. The research officer and spe- cialist in family planning for the association said she has heard rumors that tfve, tiny, aborted fetuses are neing discarded. That should not be happening 1 the woman is being operated on during the desired period within the first three months of pregnancy, she said in an inter- ew. "If it is happening, nurses should take a stand. They should take a stand that abor- tion should not be done after 12 weeks except where the mother's life is in danger." The countries where there are owest rates of deaths or com- jlications in abortions are those where the 12-week maximum is enforced, she said. In Canada, the maximum imit recommended by the Ca- nadian Medical Association is 20 weeks, she said. There never have been any studies to show if there actually are live fetuses being delivered and discarded. "Nurses are tremendously af- fected by these rumors." Working in operating rooms or on wards where there are large numbers of women having abortions "is very hard on a nurse." Even if the nurse began by strongly supporting the need for abortions, she may find her- self becoming depressed, "They need tremendous sup- she said, "and a lot of education about the place of abortion In the total family planning picture." Even although a nurse in one hospital may see many abor- tions, she needs to realize that these are "only the last resort" in the counselling on family planning. These should only be done when other methods have failed. It might help nurses who must aassist in inducing the abortions if the operating rooms were more closely connected with the family planning out- patient clinics, Miss Garrett said. But she said that If the 20- Creative hassling advised by legal research officer VANCOUVER (CP) Law- yer Arthur Close, legal research rfficer for the British Columbia Reform Commission, is in- structing disgruntled consumers n the finer points of what he calls creative hassling. Creative hassling is not legal, iut it's not illegal either. And Jr. Close says that while the ability to raise an effective fuss may not always get you your money back, satisfaction is ;uarantecd.

Mr. Close, who practised law In Vancouver before joining the commission six months ago, said individuals should press le- gal action where possible or de- sirable, but they should not al- ways rule out extraplegal meth- ods. MOST DON'T COMPLAIN "Most people are content to take their lumps rather than complain too loudly. That's why the rip-off artists get their own way so much." Mr. Close said letter-writing was effective if you table your complaint to the right person. Outline your beef to the city licensing inspector rather than to the company president. The company won't get its licence lifted, but it will certainly get the feeling it's being watched. "Another way: If you've been ripped off by n company, try to find out where they get their he suggested "Then buy n few shares in the bank and write n fruity letter to tho president of the bank say- ing that as a shareholder you don't think the bank should be lending money to firms that do not appreciate tho new trends of consumerism.

Women protest force TORONTO (CP) The Voice of Women (VoW) has sent a telegram to External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp protest- ing possible Canadian participa- tion in a peacekeeping force in Indochina. The group's national council said: "No genuine peace plans have been made clear. In this unsettled situation, Canada should not be drawn into the po- sition of representing the United States in enforcing its will on the Vietnamese." The telegram was signed by Nancy Pocock of Toronto, a member of the VoW steering committee. The VoW is a national, anti- war organization. falling behind according to London agents LONDON house- piice fever which has swept Britain like an epidemic this year is showing signs of cooling down, but some real-estate experts feel the pa- tient may simply have be- come inoculated against the new inflationary levels. Real-estate agents vary In their assessments of the situa- leading London agent said prices in central London were "still as batty as there is a distinct impression among mortgage companies that the market is flattening out after 18 months of frenzied upward move- ment.- Earlier this year, the phe- n o m e n a 1 real-estate boom, with some Increases 100 per cent over 1971 levels, was on every home-owner's lips. A great house-moving spree got under way as householders saw a way of climbing the property ladder from maiso- nette to town house to spa- cious, detached house and garden, each time plowing their sale profits into the new purchase and taking out the largest possible mortgage, with accompanying tax relief. The scramble to climb aboard the bandwagon was so frantic that a new word crept into the ing." This Yiddish-derived ex- pression, originally meaning "to became applied in the real-estate market to the practice of pushing up an agreed sale price before bind- ing contracts were signed. LAST MINUTE BOOST Gazumping was done by both vendors and purchasers. Frequently a buyer would have his deal virtually sewn up, only to find another cus- tomer jumping in with a big- ger bid, or the vendor taking last-minute advantage of the panic market by adding an- other to the price. When gazumping was at it? height last winter, a Surrey man found the house he had agreed to buy jumped more than in price in the two weeks before he signed the contract. In March hundreds camped out all night to bid each other up for apartments in London's fashionable St. John's Wood district. Although the boom started in 1971, many factors had combined long before to fuel it. Booming business confi- dence following thu Conserva- tive election victory in 1970, plentiful mortgage funds and the fact that in the late 1960s real incomes advanced faster than house prices, all coa- lesced with a shrinkage In the supply of properties coming onto the market, and prices went through the roof. At the height of this sellers' market, the time-honored British custom of "making an offer" went by the board. In- stead, houses sold within hours at the full asking or even at a premium.
