Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
WtdnMdoy, Octobtr 27, 1971 THI lETHMIDGE HERALD 21 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a high schooler (a non- smoker, by the way) who did not agree with your advice against setting up smoking rooms in high schools for kids who smoke. There's another side to the story which you obviously don't know. The break between classes is about four minutes. A per- son barely has time to use the bathroom. The student who needs the bathroom can't'get in because all Hie stalls are filled with kids who are grabbing a cigarette. Another problem is that the kids who smoke have wrecked our school bath- rooms There are cigarette burns on the toilet seats, the floors, the walls, on the towel racks, and once someone accidentally set fire to the place. I envy the students whose school has a smoking loom. It's better not only for the smokers but for the non-smokers, too. I know you will print this letter because you are fair about presenting both sides. In Schenectedy DEAR BURNED: Your letter does indeed, present some valid arguments in favor of smoking rooms in high schools. I have received several other thoughtful rebuttals an es- pecially good one from Arthur N. Pierce, Superintendent of Schools, Hanover, New Hampshire. However, I am still against the idea. Cigarette smoking has been proved unquestionably harmful to health. Facilities for smokers, in my opinion, condone and encourage smoking. As an alternative, I suggest monitors in the bathrooms at class-break time, with penalties for those who break the rules. The notion that you have to permit students to smoke is nonsense. Nicotine addicts can work on their lung cancers before 9 a.m. and after 3 p.m. DEAR ANN LANDERS: 1 took your advice and it stank. For years I have been bothered with a pesty neighbor who used to come over in the morning and follow me around from room to room gabbing and interferring with my house- work Then I read in your column about another woman who had the same problem. You told her to keep her door locked and not answer the bell. It sounded like a sensible approach so I tried it last Monday. Do you know what my neighbor did? She broke open my basement window with a hammer and a crowbar and came upstairs. I was shocked when I saw her. Her first words were, "Thank God you're all right! I thought something ter- rible had happened to you when you didn't answer the bell." So, you see, when a person has neighbors like mine she is defenseless. Any more suggestions? Duck DEAR DUCKY: Yes. Tell your neighbor you appreciate her concern but. when you don't answer the bell it means one of two things. (1) You are not at home or (2) you are at home and too busy for company so will she please not take it upon herself to break and enter. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am an officer in the United States Army who has a suggestion for that young bride whose husband is in Vietnam and whose mother is dying of camcer. I hope she will advise her husband to apply for a com- passionate assignment at a post near her parents' home. This would enable her to be with her mother as long as pos- sible and to help with the younger sisters and brothers. She could also give her father the emotional support he needs at this difficult time in his life. If her soldier husband runs into resistance when he makes this request, he should ask his chaplain to intervene. He should also request help from his two senators and his congressman. What I'm saying is he should not give up. He should try imtil he gets the assignment. I speak with authority because I made the mistake of not being persistent in a similar hardship situation and I have regretted it ever since. Good luck to him. Infantry. Fresno, California DEAR 1st: Thank you for the suggestion. I received a great many letters from readers who felt I have given the wrong advice but you were the only one who came up with a practical alternative.
