NO CHILDREN UNDER 16 THE FINEST SELECTION OF WIGS In Southern Alberta DROP IN AND BROWSE AROUNDI "First with Wigi In Southern Alberta" RUBY PIERSON Shoppert1 World Ph. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Why is there so much rudeness and pushing and shoving in the world today? I see it wherever I go. Cafeteria lines, theater fines it's the same stay. Even at the supermarket checkout counter, some creep always starts piling her groceries on top of mine before I've had a chance to get my slip and pay the bill. People are getting more impolite and more inconsiderate by the day. They snarl at each other and seem so aggressive. What's happening to our world? Why is everyone so hostile? Are people changing? Perplexed. DEAR PERP: Yes. People are becoming angrier and more competitive. Some authorities say it is because there are too many people. The "density theory" has been substanti- ated by experiments with animals. A California study proved that "normal" rats became belligerent, destructive and vicious when large numbers were crowded into a limited space. The answer: population hope. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Am I super sensitive, paranoid or just plain nuts? I had a blind date witti a fellow who seemed terribly nice. I found him interesting, provacative and fun. I was sure he enjoyed himself, too. When he saw me to the door he said, "I'll call you soon." That was three weeks ago and I haven't heard a Word from him since. This is the third time a guy has done this to me since July. If a fellow doesn't like a girl, why does he say he will call her soon? Isn't this dishonest? It certainly does give a girl false hope. She waits and waits for a call that never comes. Finally she gets depressed and loses confidence in herself. Frankly, I'd rather have a guy say, "Good night. I had a lousy time. You'll heverhear from Print this letter and let them see it the rats. Newark Knocker DEAR NEW: C'mon, .Kiddo. How would you feel if a fellow took you to the door and said, "Good night. I had a lousy time. You'll never hear from me again." It might be that the guy did enjoy himself and wanted to see you again but maybe he broke his leg lost his job, was called out of town unexpectedly or fell in love the next day. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been married four months and I'm ruining my marriage because of rny terrible mouth. This morning after my husband left for work I sat down and cried. I'm picking him to pieces and I know it. For example, I found a tetter in his pocket I asked him to mail yesterday. I yelled at him. Then I yelled because he left a wet towel on the bathroom floor. My sister nagged her husband into a divorce two years ago and I can see myself doing the same thing. I love my husband and I know he loves me but if I don't control this mouth of mine I will lose him. Can you help me? Disguested With Myself DEAR DISGUSTED: A problem recognized is half solved. First accept the fact that your husband is a letter-forgetter and a towel-dropper and you aren't going to change him. Mail your own letters and pick up his wet towels not for his sake, but for yours. Most nagging wives are secretly dissatisfied with them- selves. Picking away at a spouse is easier than doing some- thing about one's own inadequacies. Do you have outlets that provide you with self esteem? A wife who feels good about herself doesn't nag her husband about details. Her energy is being used constructively not destructively.

RECLOSABLE CAN How do you build a telephone company? We started out with a desire to fill a particular community and business need, to provide Albertans with the best possible telephone service at the lowest possible cost. Our province needed a system of modern telephones to aid its prospering economy. Of course we had to obtain the physical necessities for the system: cable, switching equipment, microwave towers, and the phone that hangs on your wall or sits on your desk. Then we had to find people to fit all these things into place. Technicians, engineers, girls who knew how to smile with their voices. Today we've an organization of people, an investment of 420 million dollars, an integrated communications service that adds 85 million dollars of gross revenue to Alberta's economy yearly. We met every challenge provided every type of communication service you needed. Now, we're looking to the future! carrying out a continuing program of research and development that will continue to provide Albertans with the finest possible communications services. We know our reason for being in business. YOUI ALBERTA GOVERNMENT TELEPHONES ;
