Ann Landers DEAK ANN LANDERS: I'm 16 and the original girl who can't say "no." They me "Rosie Rouncinccls'' and make a joke of it, but it's not Tunny. My reputation is bad and I'm scared to death my folks will get wind of it. Every time I go out with a different guy I say to myself, "This time I'm going to be a lady.'' But one kiss and I'm a goner. Don't tell me to get professional lielp. Give me some practical advice. Want To Be Good DEAR WANT TO: I know of no shortcuts or easy solutions to a problem that goes back 1C years. It will take a lot of hard work to get rid of this klinker in your thinker but unless you do your life could be a mess. Start talking with your school counsellor and good luck. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a faithful follower and have learned a lot from your column. I have confidence in your advice and I believe everything you say. Recently you told a reader, "Any man can find a woman who will go to bed with him if he sets his standards low enough." Well, Ann, I have set my standards very low and I still can't find anyobdy. Will you please tell me where to look? Desperate In New Haven DEAR YALEE: I can't tell you where to look, but I'll like to tell you where to go. It's pretty early in the season for you guys to be goofing off. Get back to the books or I'll tell your teacher on you. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I keep telling myself I can handle it alone but now I know I can't. Is there a way to stop people from asking, "What's the matter with I've had arthoplastic surgery on both legs and I use a walker to get around. You can't imagine the number of people, most of them strangers, who stop and ask, "What happened to Or, "What is your Please don't tell me these people are genuinely interested. They are just nosey. I try to be pleas- ant and control my temper but it's getting harder all the time. Tiie last woman who stopped me got a dirty look. I couldn't even be civil. Can you give me a stock answer to let people know I don't want to be questioned? I need to go out into the world but I'm finding it harder and harder. Third Degreed DEAR T.: There's no way to prevent people from asking questions. Of course it's gross to ask a handicapped person, "What's wrong with but they mean no harm. They are just inquisitive. Simply say, "I've had corrective surgery and I'm getting along fine, thank you." If they press for details say, "I really don't want to bore then change the sub- ject. Tuesday, Oclobcr 31, 1972 THE LSTHBRIDGE HERALD 21 Food services need standard code By JEAN S1IAU1' TORONTO James O'Rourke says people who cat in restaurants can help im- prove ttiem. He is hoping that public opinion will create pressure to persuade governments to adopt a standard code for the food service industry. The code, written by the Ca- nadian Restaurant Associa- tion, sets a standard for sani- tation, calls (or stricter inspection and for the licen- sing, not of establishments, but of individuals who have passed some examinations. Mr. O'Rourke is president of the CRA and chairman of the board of a food services firm. He says the CRA has a membership of about out of owners, liul that it includes representatives o f chains from hotels to ham- burger stands that do about 60 per cent the industry's business. "But we arc interested in keeping others in business." he said in an interview. "We are interested' in keeping a palchwork of restaurants of all kinds across Canada to provide interesting eating ex- periences." He said the code lias been written partly in response to an explosion in the size of the industry in Canada. He esti- mates that about peo- ple are employed in the ac- commodation, food and drink ervices. ;'Just in the last 10 to 15 years we have experienced an explosion in the number of people eating put. There are lots more tourists in Canada, Canadians arc on the move, people are living and eating in old age homes, in universities. "Because we have had an explosion, wo have all kinds of people running establish- ments that arc a disgrace. Nine out of 10 ownersliips go bankrupt within five years and we just say, 'so be it, that's free enterprise.' He said the CHA is con- vinced a change in licensing and training could help cut (lovm the failure rate as well as improve the love! of food and service offered in Can- ada. Licensing in Canada is a provincial matter which Mr. O'Eourkc said is usually han- dled by municipalities. Laws and bylaws vary widely.

In the middle i-s a rookie. The others are talking around the young, inexperienced officer. A detective goes by the door. "Hey, he says to tlie rookie, "Turn your head." Baker does. The detec- tive makes a gesture. Every- one laughs. Baker tries not to notice. The briefing begins. There are reports, and inspection will be tomorrow. Someone cracks a dirty joke. A few of the officers laugh lightly. Not Baker. Then offi- cer Duffey and Baker leave for their car, Baker hauling a box file full of forms, Duffey the shotgun. Duffey tests the weapon's action expertly, eas- ily. He handles the weapon with confidence. Baker takes a turn practis- ing loading and unloading the weapon. A shell falls to the tarmac. "Oh says Baker, Hands shake slightly with exertion, concentration, anxiety. Tough lo be a rookie. Tough to be a cop. But the cards are really stacked against Baker. Baker stands five feet four inches, and weighs ion pounds, Slie is the mother of a six-year-old .son, wife of a Los Angeles policeman anci a fe- male cop out on the streets of L.A.

But for two weeks, 12 Los Angeles County female deputies teamed with male partners to patrol the streets of Los Angeles. The program was experimental. Mary Baker has one year to prove her worth on the beat. She totes all the standard gear for a Mace, cuffs, everything. But in a skirt and blouse, with her diminutive size, she cannot be as imposing as the 180-pound deputy she re- placed, even though she sports a police sharpshooter medal under her badge. Duffey speaks frankly about the program, as if Mrs. Baker were not seated two feet to his right in the air-conditioned patrol car, her eyes flitting over the hot streets of East Los Angeles for signs of crime. This is not a beat where police are respected or welcomed. Blank Mexican- Americai! faces stare sullenly as the patrol car glides by. "I just hope when the time comes, she's Duffey says. "So far, I have no reason [o believe that she wouldn't be. We've had a couple of minor situations when she was there and ready to go to work when I needed COUNTS ON MUSCLE When asked if that isn't the case every time he starts with a rookie, Duffey admits, "Oh, that's true. "It's just that when you're with a guy you feel that he's 160, 170, 180 pounds and he's just a little bit more muscle to take care of you in actual physical combat." to help solve that problem, Mary was trained extensively in weaponless defence, which she says really meant dirty in the right place."
