Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 31, 1973-THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 3T Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: I am 15 years old. Dad died four years ago of cancer. There are five children in the family younger than I. My dad didn't belong to a union, he was self-employed, had no social security, and his insurance just barely covered his medical bills. Three years ago Mom had to go on welfare. When we buy groceries with stamps some folks in the store look at us as if we are taking money out of their pockets. Sure, people on welfare cost taxpayers money, but Dad paid his taxes when he was alive and Mom can't feed us kids on what she makes work- ing in a bakery I read some facts about welfare in an article put out by The Committee on Political Education. Everybody should see it. You run the biggest billboard in America, Ann. Please print it. Fact No 1. People wind up on welfare not because they are cheats or loafers but because they are poor They are poor not only in money, but in everything They have had poor education, poor health care, a poor chance at decent employment and poor prospects for anything better. Fact No 2 Of the 15 million people on welfare, two million are aged, permanently disabl- ed or blind. Three million are mothers. Fact No 3 Nobody is getting rich on welfare At best, it allows barebone living Maximum payment for a family of four ranges from a year in Mississippi to in New York, New Jersey. Massachusetts and Connecticut Fact No 4 Cheating on welfare is not rampant, but minimal. No program involv- ing 15 million people can be completely free of fakers. Probably less lying and cheating goes on in the welfare department than in the internal revenue department. Fact No. 5: Welfare mothers are not having babies just to collect extra money. Nearly 70 per cent of all children on welfare are legitimate. Fact No. 6: The welfare rolls are not made up mostly of blacks. More than 48 per cent of the welfare families are white, 43 per cent are black, the remaining are Orientals, American Indians and other ethnic groups. I hope this will help to reduce bigotry and clear up some misunderstanding. You Might Be Next Dear Friend: Thank you for helping to educate millions of people today I checked your facts with the department, and they are correct. Dear Ann Landers: Why are people so stupid? Why do they marry without the slightest thought to family background? Not only the physical health but the mental health of prospective husbands and wives should be carefully examined. Is there anything that can be done to smarten people up? Perhaps a course in genetics in our public schools might help. The ignorance along these lines is appalling. Comment, please Wanted: A Better World Dear Wanted: The basis for most marriages is emotional, not rational. I know of no way to "smarten up" the emotions. Logan Clendening said it best: "Men are NOT going to embrace genetic findings They are going to embrace the first attractive, trim-figured girl with limpid eyes and flashing teeth, despite the fact that her germ plasm might be reeking with cancer, hypertension, hemophilia, color blindness, hay fever and epilepsy." (Copyright 1973 Field Enterprises, Inc.) Fat models in- styles out New York Times Service PARIS Why starve on meat and water when the clothes are going to be design- ed for the woman who can suddenly blissfully shrug off such problems as keeping a shape9 The ready-to-wear collec- tions for spring and summer have brought a merciful end to the long, lean period of famine "The models look like real women, they have meat on their murmured one appreciative photographer The new fat women need have nothing in their favor. judging by skinny standards, except a pair of slender feet No waistline, generous hips and ample arms: only one's most intimate acquaintances will ever know It all starts with a long skirt that permits the wearer to hide as much of her legs as she chooses between the knee and the floor Should, however, her thighs be and it does happen, a woman's strong point, the solution is slits Front, back or on ,the sides, they reach as high as decency and one's dernere permit Other skirts unbotton down the front. Pants are definitely not de rigueur, unless one believes in Yves Saint Laurent as strong- ly as in not eating peas with a knife. His wide straight pants close lengthily with a sailor's 13-botton flap, but the baggy clownish affairs that stop at the ankle seem more contem- porary An alternative to pants is short shorts and ill-fitting ber- mudas What is really new for summer is the dress, if you can call it that. It fits the body as snugly as a sack does a potato Long, full and gathered, the smock is reminiscent of the artists and maternity kind. It comes with short cape sleeves and sides left open to the waist or with a large ruffle around the shoulders. Whether in cotton, poplin, voile or chiffon, the smock is usually printed in discreet pastel roses or large and glar- ing multicolored flowers. The colors are a lair represen- tative of the spectrum, all shades of blue and green, red, salmon, pink, mauve and maroon, mixed with cream, white, cocoa, tan, black and navy blue Christine Bailly for C I shows an interesting group of flowered dresses with matching charlady head- scarves that should make women long to do housework. They tie in back like aprons and flop open in the same place Sonia Rykiel's printed cotton dresses are unhemmed and trail threads with non- chalance The woman who gets enough mileage out of one will find herself in a miniskirt in time for its return Kenzo's cotton shirt for J A.P laces together in front and sticks out a good six inches farther than the dirndl. The dirndl, alas, is the single most popular and least flattering shape for spring. Kenzo's peasant neck kerchief and colored petticoats do little to help. Other designers' floor-length checked and madras ruffled dirndls look destined for tending to the livestock Supposing you don't care to go to work looking like a peasant? A shirt or sweater may be considered providing it's striped. No one is paying attention to the feet for summer. Often they don't show. The two major trends in heels are high and low. A four- inch thin heel is for openwork sandals, which also come striped or in gold snakeskm. Other people point to the lower shoe, tennis sneakers with bobby socks and flack flats. Hair too is growing shorter, with straight bangs like a Dutch boy's. The milinery prize goes to Jean-Jacques Martelli for his widow's hat fluttering with long black chiffon scarves. But the girls who want to get married in a Martelli gown a gray net cape over tights may well have to stick to their diets.
