Everybody reads Ann Landers. By print- ing this letter you could alert millions of readers to a tool which could bring the largest killer of women to a halt. The American Cancer Society has a free booklet on B.S.E. Breast' Self-examination) which instructs women how to detect any change in breast tissue. These changes or may not be malignant. The woman who practices B.S.E. every month has an excellent chance of discovering a lump which may have just started. An immediate Visit to her doctor for further examination and a possible biopsy could save her life. Will you suggest to your readers that they send for the free booklet, Ann? No greater service could be rendered to the women of the world. William M. Goiter, M.D. San Antonio Texas. Dear Dr. Center: Thank you for your letter. Before I spread the word about a free booklet I decided to write to the American Cancer Society Headquarters in New York to learn if they were equipped to handle the inevitable bar- rage of requests. Here is the reply: Dear Ann Landers: I am writing about something I con- sider a serious social problem, or I should say a social dis- grace. It is Blondes versus Brunettes. I see from your pic- tures that you are a brunette so I am hoping I can count you to stand with me in this fight. I was unfortunately, born a brunette. I have lived as a semi-outcast ever since. Every man I ever cared about chose a blonde when he could have had me. I'm convinced that 95 per cent of the so-called male adults in our society would rather than an ugly blonde that a beautiful brunette. Why? Because they have been brainwashed by Madison Avenue. The propogandists have decided that blondes have more fun. Every male both able bodied and no-so-able-bodied is looking for as much excitement as he can get, so it makes sense to pick the girl who promises the most fun. I am con- vinced my life would have been much different had I been a blonde. The world is unfair to brunettes and we need a spokesman. Are you game? Reject Dear Re: Sorry, I'm busy. Any woman who is so firm in her conviction should be willing to dye for it. So why don't you? What is French kissing? Is it wrong? Who should set the necking limits the boy or the girl? Can a shotgun wed- ding Head Ann Landers' booklet, "Teen-Age Ten Ways To Cool It." Send 50 cents in coin with your re- quest and a long stamped self-addressed envelope. Grocery Bill Smaller Now CALGARY (CP) The food bill takes a smaller bite out of :he family budget than it used to, contends Jacques St.-Ar- naud, president of the Canadian Food Brokers Association. "The housewife may feel the cost of food is high, but the percentage of income she spends on it is he said during a cross-country tour of food brokerage companies. In fact, food profits are so slim that some food.stores and manufacturers may be squeezed out, he said. There was a trend toward fewer, larger food stores.

The bride's mother was grabbed by the hair and heavet across the room, and then the bottles began to fly. The judge said he'd think over breach of the peace charges against four guests. t.A.

"She is sitting behind me now because I have been behind her for so long with my moral sup- port." When she first proudly an- nounced, that pound had been lost, he thought he 1 o s t more put of his wallet between paydays but still encouraged her. "My children, who started out with blond hair began to sprout green hair because of all the salads, we ate, before she started sensibly taking off he said. He said it was amazing how after a one-hour meeting, his wife would come home so happy and enthusiastic. "That is what TOPS he added. Many hours were spent de- bating how many calories she had actually eaten, he said. But this helped her too because when she was busy debating she didn't, eat so much. He thanked the TOPS organ- ization for giving him back a terrific and beautiful person- She was altogether different tors. First prize was awarded not only because she has lost Jo the Norbridgc TOPS of Leth- weight but because she had helped everyone else in TOPS "TOPS' brings out the with their problems as well.
