Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, November 30, 1970 THE lETtlBRIOGE HERALD Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDEESt I just read the letter from the 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 Mends and stayed away from the places they frequented. When I decided to get off the boozo (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 the 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. Tefl them They need to hear it from you. it also. DEAR MADE IT: Right you are. The first step in changing a life stylo fa 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 rath 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 (38 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 Ms 15-year-old sister has caught him hiding under her bed. Last week she caught him in her clothes' closet. When I asked Mm why he was doing this he said he hoped he would "see something." I ain sure he got the idea from Ms 11-year-oid pal dowa the street Tcho uses four letter words and Is about 10 yean ahead of himself. We've tried to bring our children np carefully and I am tewtsick to ne this kind of perversion in a 10-year-old boy. Advise me, please. Mother DEAR MOTHER: I see no evidence of perversion here. Your son sounds like a norms, inquisitive kid who is be- coming aware of the differences between boys and girls. He is fascinated by ffie mystery and understandably eager to get a look. The wise parent accepts this sort of behavior s normal part of growing up. Don't tell the boy he's bad or he might get the impression there's something dirty about certain parts of the bovd. Tell Mm, instead, that every per- no has a right to privacy and when be ipies on Ms sister be h denying her this right.

She attributed much of this to its Soviet system of preven- tive hospitals. Some centres took weekly or even annual boarders, plus pro- vision for family emergencies.
