Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta I TMI UTHMIDOI HKAIB Odobtr 6, 1970 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am black. 1 am employed In an office where most of the employees are white. The ques lion I want to ask is simply this: Why is it that even thougl the black person performs the same services and is paid the same salary the white person, he gets asked, sooner or later, if he knows a good maid or a reliable janitor. This has happened to me so often I am fed up. The lasi person who asked me this question was told to call'up an employment agency or place an ad in the paper. The woman looked shocked when I responded to her in this manner. I know for a fact that she did not ask any of trie white em- ployes just me and another black woman. Will you please explain this? No Watermelon, Thanks DEAR N. W. T.: This old time stereotype of the Negro was that of a servant. Negroes were uneducated and exploiter in America for hundreds of years brought here as slaves and kept ignorant. They had to take ntenial jobs since they were ill-equipped to do anything else. Today Negroes are Su- preme Court Justices, mayors of cities, college presidents and journalists. The next time someone asks you if you know of a good maid or a reliable janitor tell tfem, "No but if you need a Negro physician who specializes in dermatology there's a superb one in Chicago." DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am only 17 but am more of ,a woman than my mother and most of her friends. I have also lived more of life and know what I want and where I am going. Right now I'm in a messy situation and I need your advice. Last year I had a part-time job in an office. I fell In love with a man who worked there also. He tqM me he was separated from Ms wife, which was a lie. I know now he lied because he was afraid I would stop seeing him if I knew he was living at home. By the time I learned the truth I had already given him my heart, my body and my mind. His wife found out about us (I think I know who tipped her off) and she packed up their two children and moved back to their hometown. The following week he got himself transferred to the same city and they patched everything up. I have sent him telegrams and letters but he doesn't answer. When I telephone his office I am told he is "out of town." I called his home last week because I was desperate to hear his voice. He said, "I can't talk and hung up on me. If I could only speak to him I ant sure we could work everything out. I want to move where he is and settle for whatever time he can give me. I would rather have one hour with him than a lifetime with anyone else. What should I do DEAR SCOHP: Take the hint and leave him alone. If you need professional help to get back on the track of rationality (you sound temporarily get it. Family Service has excellent counselling. Call for an appointment. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Help! Quick! S.O.S. Did I do the right thing? A former neighbor telephoned this morning and said she had heard my husband and I were giving a party and she was sure her invitation was lost in the mail because so many mutual friends had already received theirs. I was so taken by surprise I replied, "Yes, you were on the list, by all means come." Now I am annoyed with myself because they were not on the list and she outsmarted me. What could I have said under the circumstances? Hostess With A Crowded Table DEAR HOSTESS: You could and should have said, "No, you weren't on the list, but we hope to have you another time."
