Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta rueiday, September 8, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Ann ife'l Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a homosexual who has man- aged to go straight. I think you should give encouragement to others who want to do the same, instead of telling them, as you did recently, that their chances are slim. I went into therapy but it didn't solve my problem. It did, as you pointed out, help me correct other personality disorders. You were right about that. But let me tell you how I made the transition from homosexuality to a normal life! First I threw out my homosexual magazine collection and I stopped seeing my gay friends. I avoided gay bars and night cruising. I made an effort to buy straight clothes. I 'dropped the Mary mannerisms which we all recognize as come on signals. I began to date an attractive woman and forced myself to have a real love affair. It was difficult at first, actually dis- tasteful, but after a while I enjoyed it. I also discovered that the companionship of a woman can be very stimulating. I especially like being seen with a pretty female and considered normal. The lady is married now to someone else, but we are still good friends. I am a different person today and I would not go back to the gay life for anything in the world. If I can do it, so can others. A word encouragement from you could help. Sign me Made It In Modesto Dear Made It: Thank you for Jetting me know how it was with you. And now, may I tell you how it is with others who relate similar stories? They were not homosexuals to begin with. They had'had some homosexual experiences but, as any authority will tell you, there's a big difference between the true homo and one who engages in early ex- perimentation with a member of the same sex. I receive countless letters from frightened teen-age boys who describe themselves as homosexuals. I always urge them to get coun- seling because often their fears are unfounded. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Your sarcastic answer to the young man who signed himself "Hate Aggressive Women" was uncalled for. Haven't you seen enough of today's females to know a man doesn't need anything special to attract a sex pot? He need only be (1) male and (2) present. True, as you said, a woman can't rape a man, but she can seduce Urn. It happens all the time. I've heard shocking stories from bachelors, widowers and divorced men some of them not particularly attractive. They describe with a fair amount bewilderment, how women literally dragged1 them to bed. An IS-yearold nephew of mine had to pay a dear price for his naivete. He actually married a 24-year-old nut who knew exactly what she was doing when she got pregnant. There should be laws to protect young lads against females like her. In the old days mothers used to have little talks with their daughters. Today they should have little talks with their soils. Fedsville Dear Fed: I'm in favor of little talks between mothers and sons, although Pa is usually a better candidate. Your 38-year-old nephew certainly could have used some guidance from somebody. He should have been told there's more to sex than having fun and that 18-year-old boys can make live babies. He also should have been told that every sex act carries with it a only for the boy, but for the girl. And finally, he should have been reminded of that wonderful old adage (my grandmother "If you want to dance, you should be willing to pay the fiddler." What awaits you on ttie other side of ihe marriage veil? How can you be sure your marriage will work? Read Ann Landers' booklet "Marriage-What To Expect." Send your re- quest to Ann Landers in care of The Herald enclosing SO cents in coin and a long, stamped self-addressed envelope. Divided For Sale By Weight Not Size Laying Eggs, A Full Day's Work For Hen By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) Laying on egg is a full day's work for a lien. It lakes 23 hours from the time it first starts to form until it Is laid, says Dorothy Batch- eller. Then it will probably take three days to a week to get to you by way of a grading sta- tion where it will be graded, weighed and boxed. The Homemaker By Elizabeth Bartman, District Home Economist AGAIN September is here, for families with school aged children it is like tire com- mencement of another year. It is a time to take stock of mat- ters with the children in mind. In my work and in my travels about Warner and Lethbridge counties I see much tender care of children by parents. I often wish that those young people who have sharp criticism of their elders could only realize how much love parents do have for them. If there is any thought of less than that, it is urgent necessity to heed the demand for grea'ter understanding.. With that, ah1 concerned will be blessed. No doubt you need to plan wardrobes for school and play, or school lunches, perhaps re- arranging the budget now that holidays are over and there is a demand for old, but new, nec- essities. It may be that there are some renovations to the children's rooms or the furnish- ings, to be considered later in the fall. Would you like person- al help for fresh ideas? Per- haps you would enjoy a pro- gram in your club or commu- nity on the subject. My pur- pose is to make this help avail- able to you. So it is that in- September I advertise our Extension pro- grams for you to make the most use of. them in ways which mean the most to you. Do. feel free to telephone to our Extension office, write, or just drop in. In Lethbridge, it is the Administration Building, tele phone 328-4471, extensio 431.

Phone 327-7524 DEAR MISS' BROOKFTELD: Our daughter is making us very unhappy. She. has been married for four years. Both she and her husband don't want to have children because the world, they say, is already over-populated. But if they had two children, that wouldn't be a large family. My husband and I would love to have grand- children. We think it would be wonderful to be grandparents. Do most young couples feel this way? R. G. Elkhart, Ind. DEAR R. G.: We can't answer your ques- tion. Although parents can tell a child to turn off TV, get in at certain hour, and abide by certain rales of behavior, we don't see how they can (and don't believe they should try) to convince an adult child to have children. You may want grand- children badly. But the ones who have to want, love and raise the children are your daughter and her husband. Your daughter is young and may have other interests (such as a If and when she wants children, she'll make you grandparents, DEAR MISS BROOKFIELD: Years ago my aunt went through a premature meno- pause and was given injections by her doctor. Recently, when I visited the doctor to consul him about my own menopausa problems, he put me on medi- cation. He said it was the same as injections. Is it? H. D., Cleveland, 0 DEAR H. D.: Your doctor may be referring to estrogen, which was given mainly by injection in the 1920's. Estrogen tablets have been available now for many years, so it's quite likely thai this is what your doctor has prescribed for you. In both your aunt's case and yours, the estrogen was probably given to relieve symptoms caused by hormonal imbalance resulting from menopausal changes.

WEDNESDAY AT 8 P.M. hkiiiuniwi. run i BINGO IN THE NEW EAGLES HALL BLACKOUT S3 NUMBERS FREE CARDS 3 JACKPOTS (4th, Sill and 12th) in 7 Numbers NO CHItDREN UNDER lo Mrs. Batchellcr says that al- though you buy eggs by Die dozen, they are actually sold by the pound. When you know that, it helps you decide which size is most economical at any given lime. Mrs. Batcheller, home econ- omist for the Poultry Products Institute of Canada, says grade A eggs are divided into five size classifications based on weight. The eggs within a classification may vary as much as V4 of an ounce, which is why, when you buy a dozen grade A large eggs, you may get eggs of slightly different size. Extra-large eggs weigh a minimum 2Vi ounces, large a minimum of two, medium small 114 and peewee under IVz. The minimum weight per dozen of extra-large eggs is 27 ounces, and the others come down the scale three ounces per class. If you want to decide which size is most economical, re- member that medium eggs that cost less than large eggs arc exactly equal in cost ounce for ounce. Small eggs that cost less than large eggs are ex- actly equal in cost ounce for ounce. When you have bought your eggs, Mrs. Batcheller advises getting tlicm into the refriger- ator as quickly as possible. "Eggs will deteriorate in hours at a rodm temperature of 75 or over as fast as they in days in the refrigerator. People who do their shopping then leave eggs in the car while they play golf on a hot summer day are apt to wind up with coddled eggs." When you store them, store the wide end up because that's where the air cell is. "If you store an egg on its side, the air cell can slide around and push the yolk out of shape. "Keep eggs cool and covered or in a door rack where they can't get a transfer of flavor from other foods." You can judge the freshness of an egg If you break it onto a plate. A fresh egg has an up- standing yolk, thick white around the yolk, and pronn nent chalazac. The chalazae ap- pear as two little twisted white cords on either side of a yolk. They are actually extensions of the case that holds the yolk, and act as anchors lo hold the yolk in place in the cell. Mrs. Batcheller says you can use your knowledge of egg weights to help in cooking, as well as pricing. ''A little egg more or less doesn't matter much in cookies, but it may in a custard, where you want the volume." One eight-ounce cup of eggs will take four -large eggs, five medium or six small eggs. Using egg yolks only, it takes 14 large ones to make an eight- ounce cup, 17 medium and 19 small. Using whites only you need seven large to equal an eight- ounce cup, eight medium and nine small.
