_______ Saturday, October 7, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Ann Landers DEAK AN'K LANDERS: I was told at least limes Hie very thing I'm going lo lell others and I didn't listen because I always believed terrible things happen to oilier people. Nol me. I'm talking about rape. Two weeks ago I was a practice 1 devel- oped three years ago as a college freshman. It marie better sense limn wailing for Hie bus-I thought. For lliree years I hitchhiked and never ran into a week ago Sun- day when I was picked up by what appeared lo be a plea- sant, middle-aged fatherly type. I had always heard that if a man tries something funny you should kick him where it will do the most good and run. Well, I didn't have a chance. This man seemed so nice and respectable. Suddenly he turned on lo a back road which he described as a shortcut. The next tiling f knew lie was dragging tne out of the car, ripping olf my clothes and chok- ing me. I realized the guy was crony and a person will kill if he runs into too much resistance. I figured I'd better nut fight him. An hour later I stumbled back on the main road, In shock, my face badly bruised, but lucky lo be alive. For- tunately, a police car came by and picked me up. I've made an appointment with a psychiatrist so I can talk out my horror story and get rid of the nightmares The image of that man's face, those woods, the haunt me night and day. One final word to every girl who reads this: If you are assaulted as 1 was, report it at once lo the police. They will try to find the man and put him where he belongs, away from society. Kapists are sick people and they need help. I had heard that the police get their kicks from listen- ing lo the lewd details but f didn't get that impression from the police who questioned me. They were very kind and help- ful, and they did everything possible to calm me and re- duce my humiliation. Please print my letter, Ann. II look a lot of guts to write it and maylw SOMEBODY will listen. Thanks.-Learned From Experience DEAR LEARNED: Here it is and my thanks for writing it. The first moral of lliis story, girls, is DON'T ACCEPT RIDES WITH STRANGERS. DEAR ANN LANDERS: f am a widow, age 60. and my sister died two years ago. Her four children are now 12, 14, 18 and 22. Her husband had a woman friend on the side for many years. Everyone knew about it. He wasn't even subtle. A mon'.h before my sister died I moved into their home and took care of her and the children. Her husband came and went like a boarder. Now the oldest son is getting married and I thought for sure f would take the place of his mother in the cere- mony. I was informed yesterday that I will he seated with the rest of the guests and my brother in-law's "whaddaya- callit" will be seated in the mother's place. The bride's family is planning a big reception and a church wedding with all the trimmings. Should I say noth- ing and let (he harlot take over? Thanks for your advice. -Just Sick About It Dear ,1.S.A.I.: Go as a guest and say nothing. Tile par- ents of the bride undoubtedly discussed the plans with the groom and his father and they made the decision. KELP US TO HELP OTHERS!
