Wednesday, September LETHBRIDGE Ann Landers WeeWhimsv Ann Landers: 'What does one do when half of the couple is lovely and the other half is obnoxious? I'm very fond of a woman who lives near us. Betsy is intelligent, charming and great company. But her hus- band is a vulgar, foul-mouthed glutton who attacks food and drink as if he had been caged up for months. The man tells filthy stories and monopolizes every conversation. Recently we had a series of dinner parties. I begged my husband to let me invite them for one evening. I knew Betsy would see the cars in our driveway and realize they had been excluded. My husband said, "Absolutely not." When I ran into Betsy a few days ago, I could see the hurt look on her face, but I said nothing. Should I have? How do others deal with this problem? Across The Way Dear A.C.: It's the age-old dilemma, "Love her, can't stand him." (Sometimes it's the other way around. See Betsy in the afternoon and don't be uncomfortable about leaving them off your dinner party guest list. Ob- viously they HAVE been in- vited and the husband made a jackass of himself. Once is enough. Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I and our 17-year-old daughter are planning a trip to see my aging in-laws. When we reach our destination, we will be staying in a motel for five days. We don't have much money to spend and have decided to take one double room instead of an extra room for the girl. I told my husband that I want to sleep in the double bed with my daughter and he can use the other bed He said, "Nothing doing. Edna knows we sleep together." (We have six kids. My husband claims he is not comfortable unless I am sleeping next to him. Pot-pourri The Women of the Moose meet last evening for the regular meeting, with Gary Harker. city editor of the Lethbridge Herald as guest. speaker. He presented an infor- mative talk on advertising in regards to clubs and fraternal organizations. The Women of the Moose meet each first and third Tuesday of the month. THE BETTER HALF Ann, I know I won't sleep a wink in a double bed with my husband if Edna is in the same room. What should we do? Dear Torn: It's rather sweet that your husband is not comfortable unless you are sleeping next to him, but tell him YOU will be uncomfor- table sharing a double bed with him in your daughter's presence. As a compromise, get a twin-bedded room and ask them to move in a cot. You can occupy the twin bed next to your husband and Edna can sleep on the cot. Dear Ann Landers: May I say something to "Phone the person who was furious because she was pestered by telephone solicitors? I wonder how many people realize that a large percen- tage of phone solicitors are physically handicapped, or old folks struggling on a pension, or young mothers with small children who can't get out of the house? The are just trying to make an honest living. I'm a widow with two young children. I receive a small check from the government, but with the cost of living so high I must supplement my in- come by doing this sort of work. It's not pleasant to listen to the abusive language we get when we annoy someone. Phone soliciting isn't fun. We do it because we MUST. Thanks for a chance to speak out. Another Blistered Ear Lobe Dear Lobe: Happy to oblige. It's like the old story about the two men seated across from one another and there's a number written on the middle of the table. "It's a in- sists one observer. "You're yells the other "It's a nine." It all depends on where you're sitting. Do you feel awkward, self- conscious lonely? Welcome to the club.

He reached his goal. They married. And she ran off with the money. Djemal started saving again. In many villages and towns in Macedonia girls are heavily outnumbered by men and consequently at a premium. And although the Yugoslav penal code forbids the sale of brides through dowries, marriageable girls command heavy prices. Kadri Biljali, 23. gave his prospective father in law a down payment on his 15- year-old daughter. To com- plete the marriage agreement he had another to find, half of it in gold. Inflation on the marriage market is bothering Macedo- nian men. One of them. Nevzat Biljali. was moved to complain to President Josef Broz Tito in a letter. "We must pay between 000 and 60.000 dinars and to the girl's father to set up the wedding." Biljali. 29. wrote. "We get this money together through hard labor. Then we nave to pay another 40.000 dinars in gold. "We are asking you. the dearest friend of Albanians living in this country, to abolish this excessive burden." Nevzal's letter found its way to the cabinet ol the Mac- donian state government. A spokesman said the problem of barter brides can- not be solved by legal means as legislation banning the practice already exists. He said the cabinet had urg- ed "broad based social ac- tion and the involvement of all social and political organizations in Macedonia to eliminate bride-buying."
