Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta SI Dear Ann Landers: There seems to be quite a heated argument between Ann Landers, who says homosex- uals are sick, and certain psy- chiatrists and gays who say they are NOT sick. Your op- ponents say you are ill- informed, stupid or nuts. Anyone who witnessed the Gay Pride Parade from Bel- mont Harbor to Lincoln Park in Chicago has got to go with you. Ann In my life I never saw anything to top it. Over 1.- 500 gays came out of the closet to march with their "brothers and sisters." Some of the costumes were out of this world sequins, feathers, tights, black leather coats, whips and chains. The wigs were gorgeous and the makeup was fabulous. One fellow (I think) had a live snake wrapped around his neck There was much cheering and singing. "Two-four-six- eight. Is your husband really straight'" There was also good news Irom the first gay minister of the United Church of Christ. "Sixty-two gay he announced, "have decided to step forward and declare themselves. No more hiding. They are gay and proud of it If those people are normal and healthy, then I wanna be sick. Sign Out Dear Freaked: I hope you don't think all hnmo-sexuals look and act like that. What you describe sounds like the lunatic fringe. Many homosex- uals are dignified, softspoken people They do not wear high heels or wigs. The only real difference between them and us is that they prefer as sex partners members of their own gender. Thanks for the report Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I visited my sister few weeks ago. Something I saw in her home has been bothering me and I can't get it out of my mind. My sister's husband is very strict with the children. They are nice youngsters bright and well-behaved but they are terrified of him. The mid- dle child, a boy of seven, seems to have a small appetite. His father forces him to eat and every night there is a scene at the dinner table Once the boy excused himself and threw up. Another time he began to cry because his father yelled at him for 15 minutes and shook him for be- ing "a baby." I didn't say anything to my sister, but I feel now that I should write to her. Or would she consider it My Mind Dear On: That father needs counselling And the kids will need it. too, from your description. Perhaps if you suggest to your sister that SHE discuss the family situa- tion with the school counsellor, it would be a useful first step. A no-nonsense approach to how to deal with life's most difficult and most rewarding arrangement. Ann Lander's booklet, "Marriage What To will prepare you for better or for worse.

PRICES DROP In the poor suburbs of Cairo, though, he can pick up a young wife for as little as Some unfortunate young brides fly off with their husbands only to find that the man is already married with a harem of women in his home country. The young Egyptian girl can then find herself under the orders of the No. 1 wife. Moslems are allowed four wives under Islamic law. In some cases, handsome young men arrive in Cairo as marriage undercover agents. When-the unsuspecting girl returns with him for marriage in his home country, she may discover that the real husband is in fact old and ugly. In many cases these girls seek help from their own em- bassies and thus become a burden on the state. RACKETS ARE ACTIVE Alongside the marriage market, there is a fairly widespread racket under attractive Egyptian girls are lured to Beirut or other Arab capitals with a promise of marriage or a good show business job only to end up in prostitution. Social experts have said there should be a tightening up of procedures at Egyptian register offices where hasty marries can take place. And the experts say that the countries to which the girls go should provide some sort of guarantee for their proper treatment and protection. Some researchers have pointed out that Egypt's traditional matchmakers, who can be found in the streets of any town or village in this country, have been helping in' the bride drain and should also be controlled.

He said everyone tried to re- member as many names as possible so that those released first could give embassies the names of those detained in the stadium. All prisoners were issued a blanket and fed a cup of tea with bread in the morning and beans with bread in the after- noon Mr Beaubien said he wit- nessed no executions during his detention, but he said he believed prisoners were taken out of the stadium in trucks to Rangers from Down Under Jennifer Fox, left, of Australia and Leanne Davis of New Zealand, who have been touring southern Alberta, attended the recent Girl Guides' jubilee tea at the Civic Sports Centre, commemorating 60 years of guiding in Alberta.
