Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta
Thursday, October 28, 1971 THE IETHBRIDCF HERALD 11 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: It seems that a good many peo- ple are waiting around for their parents to die and leave them something. I know this sounds terrible but it's true. My husband and I have six children. We plan to send them all through college and professional school, if they want to go. This will take a great deal of money. If we continue to live carefully, however, we can do it. _ I am an only child. My parents are what you might call "very comfortable." This is what I have told them, and I mean it from the bottom of my heart: "I don't care if you don't leave me a dime. If possible, just don't leave any big bills. I want you both to have one heck of a good time. You've worked hard and you deserve to have fun." I'm pleased to see they are taking my advice. Any- where U.S.A. DEAR ANYWHERE: Thanks for a good letter. DEAR ANN LANDERS: When are you going to stop kid- ding people? I refer to your stand on marijuana. It is ab- I am' a 73-year-old and have been smoking marijuana since 1921. There is nothing wrong with it. 1 am living proof. I would also like to point out that in the 50 years I have been smoking pot (both in a water pipe and hi cigarettes) I have never gotten in any trouble, nor have I had the desire to try something stronger. Pot relaxes me and gives ir.e a pleasant glow. The only thing wrong with it is that it's illegal. I think this ought to be changed. As for that person who reported the stupid talk at pot parties, these same people would have talked stupid without pot. It doesn't make anyone smarter-or dumb- I'll bet you a bag of grass you'll never print Bill DEAR BILL: You lose, but don't send the grass. Im not interested. I have said repeatedly that pot affects people differently, depending on what is smoked, how it is smoked, and the emotional stability and general physical condition of the smoker. Some smokers feel nothing, some become complete- ly disoriented and others experience a definite high. It is a well-known fact that some smokers get so stoned they are virtually paralyzed, while others remain functional and man- age to keep their smoking a. well-hidden secret from those with whom they work and live. Apparently you can handle it, Dad, but don't assume ev- eryone can. The psychiatrists with whom I consult are see- ing increased numbers of potheads who have freaked and are now psychotic. Marijuana is NOT harmless for some people, and I am dead set against its legalization. Too many couples go from matrimony to acrimony. Don't let your marriage flop before it gets started.

Author claims oppression linked to economic system By PATRICIA PAUL MONTREAL (CP) r- Oer- maine Greer, outspoken female liberationist and author of the Female Eunuch said that woman "might have to put their bodies on the line" in their fight for for freedom from male domin- ation. "Women have to be prepared to go into the streets and be killed. It can amount to a be- trayal of your own she told a conference on women sponsored by the McGill Alumni Association. When asked if she herself would be prepared to use guns in the fight, she made fun of the question and passed on to the next. The 32-year-old English litera- ture lecturer at Warwick Uni- versity in England told her au- dience that oppression of women was directly linked to the economic system. If women stopped being the largest single group of consum- ers, the economic system would come to a standstill, she said. "Don't think I'm not aware of these contradictions. I recognize the irony of talking about women's liberation between commercials for vaginal deo. dorants." SUGGESTS COURSE She urged her audience of uni- versity students and graduates to further the cause by concen- trating on aspects of their car- eers that specifically applied to women. She called on female lawyers to pressure for change in abor- J lion and property laws. If the Roman Catholic Church was taxed on its real estate, the gov- ernment would have enough money to set up day-care centres. Women doctors must take' control of gynecology and re-1 search into contraceptive meth- ods. Male doctors and rcscarch- ers have seen how "the pill" has liberated women, and so j have refused to disclose further discoveries of better contracep- tives which have less danger of side effects, she said. j "We won't get new methods j of birth control unless we; badger, and this is where women doctors have a real con- tribution to make." LACK PSYCHOLOGY No adequate psychology of women has been developed and woman is still explained in terms of a castrated male. His- torians have yet to trace the history of men's methods of "taming their women" end lit- erature has failed to explore the concept of a woman's culture, Miss Greer said. She said women must realize they share a common bond the world over. Miss Greer is going on a tour of Pakistan and Viet Nam to find out how American women can help women there. "We have to make contact with people. We have to contact an enormous mass of women. The important thing for the rev- olution is to keep the faith."

(CP) A trust company branch office here is completely staffed by women and the the to be enjoying it. When Virginia Ralley took over managership of the Stand- ard Trust Company office in Ar- mory Shopping Mall she de- scribed it as "a real challenge." Now, with Sharon Coulter and Linda Hogan on her staff, the office is completely female. Mrs. Ralley joined the Picton branch three years ago after working for a time in Toronto with the citizenship and immi- gration branch. With her husband Allan teach- ng at the high school here and ler five daughters, now ranging in age from 11 to 16, growing up, she was ready for a new career. How do male customers react they find the manager is a woman? "It takes them off guard for a they recover says Mrs. Ralley. Males readily accept her fin- ancial advice and she thinks men like to have a woman wail on them providing she has the necessary knowledge and is effi- cient. She recalls one older man who came to the company to buy guaranteed investment cer- tificates. He paid for them with a large roll of bills well protect- mothballs. The smell lingered in the bank all day. Getting her husband off to his high school and the children or- ganized before she goes to work is a matter of "schedule and says Mrs. Ralley. Another Picton woman who combines the jobs of housewife and executive is Margaret Ack- erman, a former nurse, who is mayor of Picton. fice of flic federal justice de- partment.
