Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneeday, October 2, 1974 -THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 39 French divorce procedure hypocritical PARIS (Reuter) Divorce, French style, may soon, become available on both sides want it. Under French divorce laws, one partner has to take the blame for a marriage breakup, which often turns the procedure into a long, costly and hypocritical charade. But now Justice Minister Jean Lecanuet, answering President Valery Discard d'Estaing's call for rapid social change, wants the legal straitjacket loosened. He will ask parliament's ap- proval for a draft bill making mutual consent adequate grounds for divorce. Both Lecanuet and Fran- coise Giroud, secretary of state for women's affairs, have entered the political arena on this burning topic on behalf of the couples who each year face the awesome task of legally separating. The newspaper Journal de Dimanche complained: "Even when the couple agree to separate, they have to in- vent a precise motive: serious insult, infidelity, etc. "Then, of course, they have to prove the motive's validity. This means trumped-up letters, statements from will- ing friends. So there it goes from being a friendly to a real separation, with the children often bearing the brunt." Or, as Le Monde put it, "The French divorce procedure is slow, costly and risky and discredits our whole system of justice." Couples who have separated "live in sin" with their next partners for years because, they cannot face or afford the divorce procedure. Lecanuet said: "I will pro- pose that couples who separate should agree on who looks after the children, what allowances should be paid and how their belongings should be divided up. "In short, there should be a kind of mutual contract be- tween couples who separate, without any apportioning of the guilt. It will be up to a judge to verify the authentici- ty 6f this contract of separation." Mrs. Giroud warmly wel- comed liberalization but warned that "if divorce is to become easier, the problem of maintenance allowances should be carefully examined, as 40 per cent of these are not paid at the moment." Despite her government title, she spoke up for the op- posite sex. "Entrusting the children to the mother is not always justi- she said. "I think it is quite normal for a woman to pay an allowance to her hus- band when their respective fi- nancial situations impose such a solution and it is the father who is bringing up the child."

PhOM 327-4843_______ Dear Ann Landers: My wife and I have a year-old son. We put in long hours and live quite a distance from our families. We try to spend two hours every weekend with my folks. The reason we don't spend more time with them is because we never know what shape my mother will be in. Yesterday she had been drinking (as usual) and by the time we arrived dear Mom was bombed out of her mind. She bounced our son in the air and hit his head on the door frame. When she caught him she was staggering and nearly fell on her face, taking the boy with her. My wife was furious. We didn't stay long after that. My mother is crude and coarse, not the sort of person we want our children to be ex- posed to. Yet she is their grandmother. What can we do? Concerned Dear Con.: The old doll is probably a boozer from way back, but I'll bet she has a lot of love to give. I hope you won't deprive her of the pleasure of giving it or deny your children the joy of receiving it. Just keep a close eye on Grandma and make it plain that there will be no more roughhousing. If she refuses to co-operate, make the visits less frequent and stay close by to police the ac- tion. Dear Ann Landers: I was offended by your reply to "Peppy In Pittsburgh." You said, "I hope that if you become ill you will call a doc- tor, not your grocer or your If by "druggist" you meant the kid behind the soda foun- tain. I have no quarrel with your analogy.

A grocer is a man who sells merchandise. No special education is required. A phar- macist is a highly trained professional who has had five years of college, one year of internship and passed two state board examinations. His grouping, if there is to be one, belongs with other members of the medical profession. Married To A Pharmacist Dear Married: Sorry if I offended you and other members of your profession, but the advice stands. I am well aware of the difference between the kid behind the soda fountain and the person who is licensed to prepare prescriptions. The kid can be a high-school drop-out, but the pharmacist must have a high school diploma, one year of college and four years of college-level pharmacy school. The fact remains, however, that a pharmacist is not trained to diagnose or treat sick people, and is not an appropriate substitute for a physician. Dear Ann Landers: You really blew it when you answered "Nature Lover's" question, "Do animals see Shame on you falling for that old wives' tale and con- fusing "animals" with "mam- mals." Many animals DO see color, in addition to monkeys and apes, which you named. For example: some lizards, snakes, turtles and fish. Insects don't see all the colors, but they see some colors humans can't see, such as ultraviolet. A. C. Grad Student In Zoology, U. Of HI- Dear A. C.: My consultant was a zoology major at your school. Next time I'll call a graduate student. (P.S. How do WE know what animals see? Care to answer this What's prudish? What's O.K.?
