This conclu- sion might be drawn from a survey recently conducted by Cameron Harvey, of the Faculty of Law at the University of Manitoba. Mr. H a r v e y polled women DEAR ANN LANDERS: I "Mount Ewrwt" (the guy who is'6'8" and feels like King Kong) takes your advice and stand tali. My 15-year-old kid aster to 61" and growing. At age 12 she was the tallest person in the school. The poor girl was so miserable was .turning into a re- cluse. Last year a teacher talked some sense into her and now she's happy as a clam, looking forward to a career as a model. Nothing has changed but her attitude. -Glad For Her DEAR GLAD: And then I not what hap- pens to you but how you take it that counts." Thanks for giving me an opportunity to say it again. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell the millions of men who read your column that if they are- not physically able to have sexual relations with their wives to get some help and stop being so confounded proud and foolish. It Is debasing for a woman to beg her husband for sex and get turned down. Take my word for it Ann, a wifes love can turn to hate when she is told to take a cold shower and forget it. Most women who have famlies don't want to take a lover on.the'side, but after months and sometimes years of frustration and rejection they feel justified. I've discussed this problem with my doctor. He tells me alcohol can be an important factor in impotency among men between 35 and 50. I'm sure my husband's inability to perform is related to his heavy drinking, but he won't admit he needs help either for his drinking or his sex life. He insists that for people our age (I'm 33 and be is 36) once a month is enough. He says I'm the one who needs professional help. Everything I've ever read on this subject makes it plain that impotency in males (as well and frigidity in females) is 98 per cent emotional and has no organic basis. When I try to explain this to my husband he becomes furious. I am not asking for advice. I've already made up my mind I am not going to lead a sexless life. What I must decide now is whether to accept an offer from an attractive man who insists he's in love with me (his wife has been ill for years) or file for divorce and get some fulfilment. Please publish this letter for the benefit of the males in your reading audience who are not as rock-headed as my husband. For them it might not be Late DEAR T. L.: Here's your letter, for the males In my reading audience who are not as rock-headed as your hus- band. Thanks for writing.

Mr. Harvey attempted to make no conclusions himself from the survey, and in fact met with opposition from the subjects of his survey who felt that any such article would have little social value. Although the majority of his qimtknutotf reflected an opln ion of equality, those who did wot, had a number of complaints in common with women employ- ed in other professions and em- Each group was adamant about their position with the majority suggesting that preju- dice may exist only in the minds of those who sought it.

As a practising lawyer for six ears, Mrs. Ellsworth Mid the as met with "only mix." The statistics on women in legal profession show that lere is a resurging interest in iw after a decline in the inter- ening years.

In 1961 there were near- twice as many men at 87, ut no women judges at all. In 1970 there are now four women magistrates, Mrs. Em- y Murphy, Mrs. Alice Jarnie- aa, Mrs. Wallis Kempo and ATS.

The women were wives of members of the Soviet mission assigned to the United Nations; a sewing company took care of .he demonstration; the gather- ng was planned by the New York City Commission to the United Nations, which works with wives of diplomats to make tliem feel welcome here. Current pattern cooks were spread on large tables. Gay spring fabrics draped the walls n glowing color. Sewing bask- ets, tape measures, hem mark- ers, needles, thread and other .cols of the sewing trade cover- ed display tables, and three de- monstrators put new machines lirough their paces while field- ng a barrage .of queries from he Russian women. Many of he visitors spoke several lan- ;uages, so no official transla- ;ors were on hand. Few of the women were sew- ng beginners, and many of them had stitched the gar- ments they were wearing. An sception was Mrs. Nicholai Tochine, who had a career of ler own back home as a mu- sician and chorus conductor with a television company in VIoscow. "Here, I am just a she said. "So I must find something to fill my ime." She is filling it by learn- rag to sew and is planning to 3uy an American sewing ma- chine.

THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "That's the first time I've ever eaten with chained to the counter I" of the social welfare court, one D municipal court and the sole woman member of the superior court in Canada. Mrs. Rejane I.aberge Colas was sworn in as a judge of the Quebec Superior Court in March, 1969. One male member of the Lethbridge legal profession was asked if he felt that women suf- 'ered at the hands of their fel- low lawyers. He replied that women seem io be as iraich discriminated against by their own sex as by men. He said that the ones who are successful are highly com- petitive. He said women are general- ly the most learned people in law when it comes to the sta- tutes, but run into problems in the practical application of the law. When asked if ne would rec- ommend law to a girl, if she were interested, he replied that law for a woman, is lonely. One difficulty is that other women are unwilling to accept them. In reply to Mr. Harvey's ques- tionnaire, the majority of wo- men said they would definitely advise the law profession to girls. Legal training was given the credit for a better opportunity to work within the community and to raise a family even i the profession is not actively carried on. One view is that education is never a waste, even of women, although the survey did not pear to carry out the prevalent thought that women often do not finish their law studies once started. Women in law in C a n a d s ave come a ways since 1917 when a conviction in Alberta vas questioned on the grounds hat a woman was not legally competent and capable be- ing a police magistrate. It may also be true that wo- men are unwilling to admit dis- crimination, as one contributor vrote Mr. Harvey. That per- laps it's easier to accept what is, than to change what may never be. F.O.E.
