Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I just finished reading the letter from "Two Ton Bessie" and I'd like to say a thing or two because I happen to be one of those "prune-faced, sparrow- legged size 8's" she is talking about. Doesn't that ignoramus know that skinny people have a weight problem as serious and misery-making as hers? I'd give anything if I could take those 25 pounds she is trying to lose. I've been called "Bean- Pole" and "Olive Oil" for as long as I can remember. I've tried padded bras, the padded fanny, and even white hose to make my legs look heavier. I've stayed away from sleeveless dresses to hide my bony arms. Finally I gave up the gimmicks and decided to accept myself as I am and if people don't like the way I look too bad Please print the reverse side of the fat story, Ann. It's a sad one. We have no self- help groups like Weight Watchers or Tops. We are alone. Fighting To Stay At 104 Dear Fighting: There ain't no justice, but it might help to know that the underweights usually enjoy better health, have more energy and live longer than their obese brothers and sisters. So count your blessings, Honey, and have an extra piece of chocolate fudge cake tonight. A lot of folks envy you: Dear Ann Landers: This friend, with whom 1 work on committees, insists on calling me Whatcha-ma- doodle.'' My parents came from Europe and kept the family name instead of chang- ing it. The name is not dif- ficult if a person will take the time to divide it into syllables My friends and the people I work with have no trouble. The last time this woman called me "Mrs. Whatcha-ma- ioodle'' was when she in- troduced me to her mother-in- law. The woman looked startl- ed and believed it was my real name. I immediately cor- rected her, but with a laugh in my voice and a smile on my face. Later I mentioned the in- cident to a friend who said I was too sensitive, that my name IS virtually unpronoun- cable and she suggested that I grow a thicker hide. If you think she is right, say so. If not, tell me how to handle it. Hackles Up In New Jersey Dear Hack: No name is un- pronouncable for those who make an honest effort to pronounce it. That clod who insists on calling you Mrs. Whatcha-ma-doodle is letting you know you aren't worth the trouble. The next time she does it, keep the smile OFF your face and the laughter out of your voice. Tell her if she refuses to learn how to pronounce your name, you will be happy to pronounce it for her any time. Dear Ann Landers: For two years "A" has been keeping company with "D'', a woman 8 or 10 years his senior. A month ago he gave her a diamond. During their courtship, "A's" mother never welcom- ed "D' into her home. The son was told not to bring her to family functions. He com- plied with his mother's wishes. Except for the age difference, is the type of girl most mothers would love their sons to marry. She is successful, attractive and charming. Many of us feel the engage- ment should be celebrated in some way but we don't want to offend the mother How do we proceed? Savannah Kin Dear Kin: The age difference should be ignored. "D" should be feted as any other bride. The mother should be invited to all festivities and it's up to her to decide whether she wishes to accept. aaiuraiy, ucioovr 13, 1073-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD-21 Survey lists sins common to teachers For love of beauty? A secretary in Denver turns many a nead in able today with the style originating from African LONDON (CP) The most, unforgivable sin a teacher can commit, according to a survey of British school children, is to shout. Shouting and yelling were far and away the main com- plaints among more than 400 children in the poll recently published in Where, the magazine of the Advisory Centre for Education. After shouting, the most un- popular characteristics were favoritism, sarcasm and "making clever remarks." "Nearly all our teachers- shout sharply when they tell you said one nine-year- old boy "I don't know why they don't talk softly." fl'ut the survey of primary students at several schools in Manchester and London show- ed 65 per cent like their teachers. Another 18 per cent dislike teachers and 17 per cent were undecided. The most surprising thing about the survey, education authorities said, was that it showed children were far more sensitive to teacher's even casual remarks praise or criticism than most teachers realize. TREASURED MEMORY One child treasured the memory of a teacher replying, "yes, my while another fondly recalled a teacher saying, "Take 20 points, ducky." But "come on, remained for years as an un- forgotten insult with one lad. Another still resented the remark, "What big feet you've got." Many children remembered with pleasure remarks by a teacher that showed awareness of their lives out- side school. her direction with her beauty and out-of-sight hair- do. The hairstyle is called corn roll, and is fashion- tribes. This young lady spends three hours a day her hair. The cone at the back is attached. Calendar of local happenings R. W. Y.
