Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Policewoman Lois Fisher likes fraud October 1, 1971 THE IEHTBRIDGE HERALD 21 THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your ridiculous answer to the mother whose 18-year.old son was getting "experience" from the 35-year-old lady next door leads me to believe that someone threw a cherry bomb in your crib mt .July 4, 1JI17 and caused permanent brain damage. You said to make sure the boy was "plenty well inform- ed." It seems to me that he is already TOO well informed. What he needs is a severe tongue lashing trom his father not more information. As for that wench next door, she should be horse-whipped within an inch of her life. And YOU, Ann Landers, should be boiled in oil for your ho-hum attitude to- ward the boy's immoral behavior. Mother Of Five In Cov- ington, Ky. DEAR MOTHER: Ho-hum, my Aunt Ethel. I'm realistic, and I hope you'll join the real world soon, for the sake of your five kids. An 18-year-old boy who is romping around next door with the middle-aged wife of a tired business man is not about to give it up and go back to Scrabble just because his father gives hint a scolding. I told the mother to make sure the boy gets a lough lec- ture from his dad on the moral and social aspects of his behavior and to make certain he is well informed on the biological aspects as well. That was good, practical advice and I stand behind il. No matter what you think, Mother, you just can't keep 'em down on the farm after they've seen Paree. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You've never had a problem like this one. I hope .you'll know what to do with it. I left tile states two years ago to work overseas in con- struction. I said goodbye to a great looking doll I had dated all through high school. We were not engaged because I didn't think it would be fair to her, but Sybil said she'd wait for me. Not a week went by that 1 didn't get at least three let- ters from Syb, usually four. 1 kept asking for snapshots but she stopped sending Uiem about 18 months ago. Now I know why. I got home yesterday and there she was all 170 pounds of her. My sis and mom had written Uiat Syb was putting on a lot of weight but I thought they were exaggerating. I was so shocked when I saw her I couldn't speak. Her first words were, "I'll diet." We had a long talk and she told me she had eaten herself into blimphood because she was lonesome. I feel awfully guilty, but I must admit this chick leaves me cold. I hate fat women. Would it be lousy of me if I told Syb to call me when she drops the 50 pounds she put on in my absence? Too Much To Love DEAR T.M.: If you dump her she might gain another 50. Urge Syb to see a doctor and get back in shape. H she sticks with her diet, fine. If she can't, with an incentive like this well she's a compulsive eater, destined to be broad where a broad shouldn't be broad. I would not tell a man who hates fat women lo stick around just to be a nice guy. It wouldn't work. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 am interested in Women's Lib because I believe ir. their goals. Will you please tell me why they get so much rotten publicity? Much of it is unearned maligning based on fiction. For example. I keep hearing them referred to as "those crazy bra-burners." I have asked many well-informed women in the movement about this and no one knows of a single bra that has been burned. A committee of Women's Libbers threatened to burn a bra in 1368 at the Miss America contest but they couldn't get a fire permit so they abandoned the idea. We would appreciate it very much if you would print this in your widely syndicated column and put to rest this ridiculous oft-repeated canard. Thank you. Nassau County DEAR NC: Here's your letter and a pox on those mean- mouthed, loose-lipped canard-perpetuating cads. I don't know where the bra.burning propaganda originated but I've seen a lot of dames wlio may well have burned their bras because they sure as heck weren't wearing them. EDMONTON (CP) Wom- en who enter crime can be pretty cold and calculating, but Lliev usually are liable to be in- volved in small swindles rather Ilian large ones, says Police- woman Ixris Fisher of the fraud detail of the Edmonton police force. "At least I've never met any great women she added. Mrs. Fisher has teen on the force as a policewoman for German fanners short of wives BONN (Reuter) West Ger- man farmers have a problem which strikes at their they are finding it increasing- ly difficult to get wives. Country girls, it seems, arc more attracted to the cities, and there is a dearth of city girls prepared to settle for an agricultural life. The situation is particularly serious in regions offering jobs in nearby industrial areas. In the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg, an alarmed farmers' association has estimated that in the near future some young men on the land will have scarcely chance of finding suitable marriage partners because girU are becoming scarcer in Lire villages. Farmers' associations in va- rious regions have launched a campaign aimed at polishing ip the negative image of the farmer's wife which is still stubbornly held by many in the cities. They are also offering spe- cial courses to city girls, who lave become friendly with farmers' sons, to make country life more attractive to them while familiarizing them with what it entails for women. "The country woman a woman like any prom- ises an orange leaflet. It adds, 'she works neither longer nor harder than anv housewife." OUT OF CLASSROOM TORONTO (CP) Eighte-.n Ryerson home economics stu- dents spent their summer tak- ing home economics out of the classroom into Toronto homes and social services agencies. The students received each from the federal govern- ment's Opportunities for Youth program for working daily from mid-May to mid-August. The projects were devised by the home economics department, to aid low-income families and provide the girls with practical application of their school sub- jects. Student insurance problem avoided by reading brochure By MAUREEN MMIESON vStaff Writer What arc tlic limitations of Jie student accident insurance program distributed through the Lethbridge school system? Enquiries at one or two home and school meetings recently show that some parents appar- ently don't read the brochure accompanying the application forms which are sent home with their children. The main point of confusion seems to be the policy docs not cover "benefits provided under the provincial medicare pro- gram. The plan does not cover any portion of physician or sur- geon's fees." A spot sampling of opinions oi local school principals pro- duced a reasonably unanimous and favorable result. G. S. Lnkie said there are no known complaints at Floctwood Bawden. The insurance he said, "provides a service for parents who want and the only school involvement other than handing out and collect- ing envelopes, "is to keep track of kids who have been in- sured." St. Paul's John Aberle said he has heard of no complaints whatsoever. The insurance "actually works well for us, though we don't have many people using it" said Gary Mahoney at St. Patrick's. "We've had (claims for) at least two sels of teelh." Money, according to Mr. Ma- honey, is paid promptly, "anri we haven't heard of any com- plaints." Westminster's J. M. Wisharl said it was "very, very satis- factory never a complaint over the years." Joe Joevenazzo at St. Mary's reported one case of apparent office mishandling, but said this was the only parental griev- BEST-Q-MILK AS IOW AS rOWDERED MILK SENSATION PER QT.
