Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR 'ANN LANDERS: I'd like to say a word to that Big Mouth who wrote in de- fense of supermarket cash- iers. Did it ever occur to her that while she stands on her bunions she gets close to an hour, if she belongs to a union? A lot of her customers have walked on their bunions for an hour, trudged sev- eral blocks to the store, rilled their carts, then waited in line anywhere from 10 minutes to half an hour. She griped about being asked dumb questions. It's bar job to answer those dumb questions. .The idiots who ask DEAR ANN LANDERS: Recently a woman at work arranged a blind date for me with her nephew. She had told me a lot about Charlie and he sounded like the kind of person I'd enjoy. I found him to be very attractive, well read, with a good senss of humor. But one thing about him bothered me. He con- sumed more alcohol than any person I had ever gone out with in my life. Charlie- didn't have any Of the usual symptoms of drunk- enness, but I counted four martinis before dinner, nearly a whole bottle of wine with the meal and six scotches ifter dinner. DEAR ANN LANDERS: >The letter from ths girl in Iowa who was afraid to let her boyfriends see her 12- year-old retarded brother got to me. I, too, have a retarded brother. Billy is eight years old and we love him very much. When I first started to have boyfriends they would come over in the evening, just to talk. Billy would suddenly ap- pear out of nowhere without a stitch of clothes on. The boys were noticeably embar- rassed but I would explain that Billy had the mind of a very young child and he didn't know that in our society people were expected to wear them are helping to pay her salary. No customers, no job. Employees who resent wait- ing on people should get into other work. They don't do the store any good. Customers sense their hostility and would rather go where they are made to feel welcome. Why do the managers put up with it? Help isn't that hard to get these days Irked In Springfield, Mo. DEAR IRKED: If any store managers out there can sup- ply an answer I'll print it. (P.S. I telephoned Springfield, Mo., and your fi- gure is a gross exaggeration.) When it came time to go ihome I was afraid to get in the car with him. I asked if he'd like me to drive and he laughed and said, "Relax, honey, booze doesn't affect me. I'm as sober as you are." The ride home was plenty hairy. I held my breath until I got out of the car. I'm sure he'll call again. Should I go out with him? I've talked to a few people who know him and they all say he drinks like a fish. What do you say? Sided DEAR UN: If he drinks like a fish, swim with him but don't drive with him. clothes when guests were present. Not one boy resented Billy or became embarrassed so that he didn't come back to the house. If any friend, male or fe- male, had ever given me the impression that he'd ralher not have Billy around. I would have told him where to go. I believe God sent Billy to us to opsn our eyes to ths need for love and understand- ing. We need Kim to remind us of how fortunate we are too have a normal thinking abil- ity. Billy has enriched my life. His Sister DEAR SISTER. _ And you, dear girl, have enriched ours. Thanks for writing. Queen's silver jubilee Qfsen Juliana of The Netherlands seen last night during the official opening of a week of celebrations to mark the silver jubilee of her reign.

Thursday, September 6, 1973 THE LETHBFUDGE HERALD 25 Sagan fed up with France, will pay taxes in Ireland By PAUL MAJENDIE PARIS (Reuter) novelist FrancoLse Sagan, who rocketed to fame 20 years ago as a teen-ager with her first book Bonjour Tristesse, is going to live in Ireland. She says she has had enough of France, its scurrilous magazines, its taxes and its lack of privacy for pub- lic figures. The gamin-liks figure, whose tortured novels acted as a mouthpiece for the cynicism of French youth, is off with her 10- year-old son Denis to find an Irish country retreat where "at last I will write a very beautiful book." She explained that she is fed up with France. "It is a country where a woman who pays her taxes is insulted because she stops drinking and because she has a child she wants to protect from the public gaze. "The Irish have a weakness for writers and they respect the liberty of others. They welcome the French. I prefer to pay my taxes to people who are almost as abandoned as I have been than to a state which makes fun of you." Another reason for ter self- imposed exile is an article in the sensationalist right-wing weekly Minute which claimed she was seriously ill. This re- sulted in her friends being too afraid to call her up for weeks. But she added: "France has always been very good to me and the French are charming people that I love. But I am go- ing to leave them. Its an irrevo- cable d'Scision although I intend keeping a little place in Paris which I shall let out. Francoise, whose novels de- pict a world of boredom, fatigue and frustration, is clearly plan- ning a complete character change with her move across the sea. "The Irish are very noble people and they protect their women. I go to them desolate and with a broken heart. I will come back to France but as an Irish woman. I will be able to call myself Francoise O'Sagan. "I will choose a house badly heated and with plenty of air. I won't have a said Miss Sagan, who spent two months in a hospital in 1957 after crashing her Aston Martin and fracturing her skull. DINOSAUR CHAMP Dr. Charles, em eighty-eigrit-yeor-old Ottawa resident, has collected more dinosaurs than anyone else in the world. In Weekend Magazine this Saturday, he talks to Victor Maiarek about his 45 years of hunting dino- saurs in Kansas, Wyoming, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and the "badlands" of Alberta.
