It pictures a couple of shaggy- haired hippies one is a boy and one is a girl but Ihey look very much alike in their jeans, love beads, granny glasses, sandals and sunglasses. The girl is saying to Uie guy "I gotla go pick up my unenip'oyiiio'( Then I'll drop in al the university to see what's holding up my federal grant. Meanwhile why cicn'l you s'.op by Ihe free clinic and check your x-rays and pick up my new glasses at Ihe health centre? If you have lime, go by the welfare department and try lo got an increac. I'll meet you at 5 p.m. in front of the Federal building lor the mass demonstration against the rotten establishment." This cartoon is more than a laugh. II tells a lot about what's wrong with our society. Do you have the guts lo print Iliis and comment? Of Milk And Honey DEAR HONEY: The underlying message comes through loud and clear. I've said il before and I'll say il again. "Dependency breeds hoslilily." DEAR ANN LANDERS: This is Ihe same old story. You've prcbably bored lo pieces with it. Married 33 years. Children grown. Grandchildren adorable. I should be happy as a mea- dow lark, but I'm not. My husband is having an affair with his secretary who is 20 years younger. She's plain iooking and devoid of personality. In her defense, however, I must say, if I sat in the same room with a wax dummy eight hours a day, five clays a week he'd probably begin to look good to me, too. (The experts call Ihis the law of Proxi- mity.) My husband denies there is anything going on but I know he's covering up. I've offered him a separation but he says 1 am being ridiculous. What should 1 do? I've seen mar- riages between people our age break up and nobody is hap- pier. The man loses tlie respect of his children and friends. The younger woman Iras an old gaffer en her hands in a few years and ends up being his nurse. Tlie wife actually comes out best. But I still love this silly boob and I hale to see him make a fool cf himself. As I sit here thinking of how lo end Ihis letter I know what I ought lo do. I'm going lo stay right here, do nothing, and wait for him (o regain his senses Thanks for helping me make up my mind. You're wonderful, Ann Landers. Momes DEAR D: I am? How nice cf you lo say so.

"1 am allergic lo Preston." Three months later Ihe rash disappeared and she decider! her hair sprav was Ihe cause. She asked for the ring back but Prestion refused to give it to her. The latest is this real life soap opera is that she says if he will give her Ihc ring she will marry him wilhin tlie mcnth. He said no and she has llucalened to kill herself. I don't want a suicide on my .son's conscience. Please ad- vise. Couver DEAR VAN: If Preston is he'll lake Ihc ring to the jeweler and see if he can gel a refund or a credit.
