Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I Just read the letter from tho ex-homosexual who described his transition from the gay life to the straight life. The similarity between the homo- sexual and the alcoholic struck me as quite remarkable. The main point of his letter was that he had washed his hands of his gay friends and stayed away from the places they frequented. When I decided to get off the booze (which was ruining my I made the same decision. It wasn't easy. There were times when I was very lonely but I knew I'd never make it unless I cut clean from my boozing buddies. I this same formula must be followed If one wants to kick drugs, gambling any group thing. Once tile decision is reached to knock it off one must resolve to stay away from the friends who do it. So long as he re- mains a part of the group he will be a participant. Ten them They need to hear it from you. it also. DEAR MADE IT: Right you are. The first step in changing a life style is to change friends. Thanks for point- ing it out so graphically. DEAR ANN LANDERS: In a book you wrote a few years ago called "Since You Ask Me" I remember a chapter entitled "Marriage Is Not For Everyone." When I read it I said to myself, "How right she Yesterday I had an argument with a friend who insists that marriage is the natural condition for all humans. She claims that the singles in our society are freaks who flout the laws of na- ture that all their neuroses would disappear if they married. My own marriage (36 years) happens to be a good one and I consider myself very fortunate. I see so many poor marriages around it is heartbreaking. It's plain to see that both parties rue the day they met. Their children are dis- turbed, their own lives are beset with physical ailments, al- coholism, infidelity and sometimes raw hate. Please, Ann, print this letter and comment. I'm sure others have the crazy idea that marriage is a cure-all. Someone should set them straight. Alabama DEAR D.A.: Blessed is he (or she) who is not emotion- ally or tempermentally suited for marriage and knows it. How much better to stay single and make several people happy than to get married and make one person miserable. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am In a quandary about our 10-year-old son. Twice this week hds 15-year-old sister has caught him hiding under her bed. Last week she caught him In ber clothes' closet. When I asked him why he was doing this he said he hoped he would "see something." I am sure be got the ides from his 11-year-oH pal down the street uses four letter words and is about 10 yean ahead of himself. We've tried to bring our children op carefully and I am heartsick to see this kind of perversion in a 10-year-old1 boy. me, please. Mother DEAR MOTHER: I see no evidence of perversion here. Your son sounds like a nonna, inquisitive kid who is be- coming aware of the differences between boys and girls. He b fascinated by thte mystery and understandably eager to get a look. The wise parent accepts this sort of behavior as a normal part of growing up. Don't tell the boy bad or he might get the impression there's something dirty about certain parts of the boya. Tell him, Instead, that every per- has a right to privacy and when he spies on his sister be fa denying her this right.

Mrs. Teakles recently re- turned from a three-month sur vey of child care centres in the Soviet Union, Finland am Sweden. Her trip involved continuation of her studies o the Russian language as we as a study of day care centres a service which she performet for the International Council o Women, of which she is a mem ber. In a report on that trip, she said Soviet day care centres aren't free or compulsory bu they do come under the federal education department. The main goals are fostering gooc health habits, teaching chil- dren that they are units in collective society, and empha- sis on the fundamental Soviet assumption that personal gain is secondary to the common good. Though Mrs. Teakles said YWjCA neivs Deb Teens, for girls 12 and over, will be held on Mon- ay from 7 to 8 p.m. at Agnes )avidson School. Bowling will be the program for this week.

She attributed much of this to the Soviet system of preven- tive hospitals. Some centres took weekly or even annual boarders, plus pro- vision for family emergencies. However day care was not uni- versal. In large cities about 70 per cent of the people could use day care sendees but in small- er cities it averages about 20 ier cent. Living space is cramped and bod is plentiful, but queues of- en develop from poor distribu- ion and uncertain supply, Mrs. Teakles said. Two hot meals and an afternoon snack are served. Each group has two teachers and two nurses who alternate six-hour shifts. Teachers, se- lected for ability with children, are usually trained for a year. Directors have five years of training. Centres also have vis- isting dentists. The day's routine includes play, nature periods, music and dancing. Children's books are plentiful. Mrs. Teakles visistad centres In Moscow and Stalingrad and in Helsinki, Finland, she saw a department store day centre. She also visisted one of Helsin- ki's eight homes for unwed mothers, which are financially supplemented by the city if heir clients cannot pay. In Sweden she saw three ypes of centres expected 'this 'ear to handle more than 100 children for full-time work- ing mothers and part-time working mothers. 71 j nil of- local happminab St. Mary's Anglican Church 'omen will meet in the Parish all on Tuesday at p.m. ostesses will be Mrs. N.

According to this publisher, any- of present skill, can jve reading ability. Buying high-priced clothes guiltf feeling OTTAWA (CP) It isn't the length of an outfit that counts, it's the price. And the price should be just a little bit more than you can afford to make you feel deliriously guilty, confi- dent and fascinating to men, says Mme. Ginette Spanier, director of the high fashion House of Balmain in Paris. Speaking recently here, Mme. Spanier, wearing a beautifully fitted green suit with a skirt just below the knee, said that during her two weeks in North America, she had been bombarded with questions about "This busines of the midi." She advised the 750 women at the meeting not to let any- one bully them in the matter of fashion. "Have any length you like. "I think we want to fasci- nate men, but as they don't notice what we have on, I think it's silly to spend a lot of money to please them. I think we dress for ourselves. "For a dress to do a great deal for you, it's got to be a little more expensive than you can afford and make you feel a little bit guilty." CHOOSE OWN HEMLINE A native of England who has lived for years in France, Mme. Spanier said she per- sonally finds it "jolly diffi- cult" to draw an exact line between right and wrong. "And if you're going to bring it to the hemline, I think that's madness. The at- tractive girls get away with whatever hemline they choose." She did point out, however, that the dictates of classical high fashion had brought down hemlines to cover the knees six months before. Mme. Spanier started work- mg for Pierre Balmain in 1947 when she went to help a relative select a dress from his collection and was picked out because .she was bossy to the saleswoman. Now she oversees a fashion house which each day shows a collection of 150 outfits ex- cept when the collections are being prepared twice n year the summer one at the end of January and (he win- er one at the end of July. "In our firm, 350 women are shut up in the basement. It is always overheated and this always leads to wild hys- teria and a great deal of cry- she said matter-of-fact- iy. GUARD AGAINST PIRACY She said one has to be in- vited to see the collection "because of all this piracy business" where people sneak in to see the fashions and make sketches of them so that the clothes may be reproduced .without the pur- chase of an original. Lunch box tip When baking a custard for Hie family dinner, plan to cook somo individual custards at the same tune for the student's or worker's lunch box. As a sur- prise, says the Poultry Prod- ucts Institute, place a drained canned apricot half, or other fruit, in the bottom of each custard cup before pouring in the custard. love jrs... listening to his explanation even if you don't believe it. She also sees no lessening of individual buyers. "No woman has Identical right and left sides. Woman's con- fluence is made of gossamer, stuff, and as long as there are women rich enough to have both sides fitted, we'll be in business." Sophie Loren, M a r 1 e n Dietrich, Ava Gardner and Carole Baiter are a few of those who have sought out Balmain designs for both personal and film wear. Another customer was sexy film star Brigitle Bardot. Al- though the pouty blonde "hates our kind of Mme. Spanier said, she want- ed something special for pre- sentation to Queen Elizabeth. But the actress, who a generous display of bosom, was upset when Mme. Span- ier insisted she cover up for royalty. So a comprise was ar- ranged and Miss Bardot, wearing a dress with a high neckline, demurely made her curtsy to the Queen. Once out of the reception, how- ever, she ripped off a dickey which cleverly covered a low decolletage, and then met photographers. LA. TO F.O.I.
