They have been corresponding lor years (unknown to me, ol course i It came as a com- plete shock He gave me no hint that ours was not a perfect marriage. A lew weeks ago Chris went to see this woman (lor halt an hour) alter not having seen her lor 21 years When he told me ol the visit" I was stunned. I promptly lelephoned the woman (long- distance) and asked what had been going on She replied, "Absolutely nothing. I didn't want him 21 years ago and I don't want him now. Our cor- respondence has always been completely platonic." I believe her.

I heard a better one- "The women are virgins until they marry -and the men afterwards Ebert, Sun-Times Movie Critic Roger, Honey: So -how do you account lor all those large families'' DEAR READERS: Remember the letter from the mother whose 20-year-old daughter started to sleep with her 19-year-old boyfriend because all her friends were doing it? After listening to them tell how beautiful and glorious sex was, she began to believe she was missing something The mother wrote. "I was there mysell when 1 was 20 and I remember how exploited and ashamed I felt. I can't believe human nature has changed that much." The mother asked me to in- vite the girls to come forward and tell what really happens to their sell-image when they begin to sleep around So I did and the response was staggering. The majority of the girls who wrote said they were "in love" and having sexual inter- course with only one guy (that week or that month or that year i They didn't consider it "sleeping around" since they were not being promiscuous out of ten letters from girls under were as young as 13) said they felt deeply ashamed and were sorry they had been so stupid or "weak." They were fearful lor their reputations and fell "ruined." The letters from the older girls were less negative. The older and more mature the girls, the fewer the regrets. Here are some excerpts: I-Yom Nashville (age 15r It was the dumbest thing I ever did in mv whole lite. I was depressed for weeks.

(CP) Tangie Mothersell spends her days being a walking security symbol for Sophie. Cathy and Sam, who are tour years old, and elephants. She is an erstwhile legal secretary who has become the elephant minder here at the African Lion Safari, about halfway between Hamilton and Gait. Several dozen spe- cies of animals wander free in the 550-acre Safari park, view- ed by visitors who cruise through in closed cars. Assist- ant manager G.D. Dailley says about cars a year now visit the Safari, which opened in 1968. Miss Mothersell's day with her charges begins about 9 a.m. when she helps let them out to their outside pen. cleans their barn and then takes them out to roam in the park. The days are sometimes enlivened by games of tag with a rhinoceros, by pre- venting the elephants from stripping all the trees in the area or acting too interested in the tourists. LIKES ANIMALS Miss Mothersell is a native of Halifax who was working as a legal secretary in Kitch- ener, not liking it very much. She left to work for five months as general assistant in an animal clinic, then per- suaded the Safari's manage- ment to hire her. "I went to work in the pet corner, taking care of the ani- mals, cleaning their cages and feeding them, watching the people to see they don't do anything they shouldn't. "I started relieving at lunch hour with the cheetahs and when the man that took care of the elephants left, I came out here." She says it took about a month and a half, working with people the elephants al- ready knew, to get them to accept her completely. "We have to be able to con- trol them, so the most impor- tant thing is obedience train- ing If they start taking off. and they've done it. you have to get them so they'll come back. "You have to keep them of I the road, because the paint is all scraped off our trucks where they've rubbed against them, and they could break a car window." CARROT AND STICK A small stick and a bag of carrots are her working tools. "When you call them and they come, you give them a carrot. When they don't come, you get behind them and chase them. I've got them now so if I point, they'll go where they know they should have gone in the first place. "If you call and they don't come, the ideal thing is to get someone else behind them to chase them to you so you be- come their security. Then if something startles them, they'll come to you and not scatter She says you call an ele- phant by shouting, "Come here, Sophie." or whoever. "Sophie has a cut on her trunk and more hair than Ca- thy. Sarn has larger tusks and he's smaller. You can pretty well tell them by their faces, once you're used to them." USES RADIO She has a two-way radio to call for assistance if she thinks she needs it. She called for a truck one day when the elephants and a rhino were playing and things got a bit too exciting She says an occasional tour- ist can cause a problem, too. "The animals look tame and docile, but they're not. People want to get out of their cars and take pictures, which I can appreciate, but something might happen to them. Grant, the zebra, tried to kick me the other day. "One day a man started walking toward a rhino that had his head down and his ears back I ran toward him. which was ridiculous, because the elephants ran, too. but I didn't know what else to do." Miss Mothersell says she likes working with the big an- imals because she considers them smart and more inter- esting than small beasts. "It's more of a challenge because there's nothing physi- cal you can do to make them behave. "I get along with them. too. sometimes better than I do with people. They're very open and very honest, which sounds lunatic, I suppose." She says she's not entirely sure what the future holds. "I'd like to go to Africa someday." ha e for call ALICANTE, Spain (Reuter) Colin Levy, husband of Norma Levy, the call girl in- volved in the recent Lord Lambton scandal in Britain, has been charged with the at- tempted murder of his wife, a consular official said Wednes- day. A spokesman for the British consulate in Alicante told Reuters news agency that a Spanish judge went Tuesday night to the local jail where Levy has been in custody since his arrest near here July 14. He was held in lieu of bail. Che spokesman said. Police sources said he was taken into custody after his wife went to police to allege that he tried to run over her in Ins car at the nearby Mediterranean resort of Denia She also alleged he tried to shoot at her with a rifle and a pistol, the sources said. First female troops ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) A 22-year-old woman was up at a.m today to begin 17 weeks of training as the first female trooper in the history of the New York state police. Regina Robbms took the oath of office recently with 129 other new troopers, all male. Miss Robbins is a political science graduate of Syracuse University and a native of the Madison County community of New Woodstock. She said after the swearing- in ceremony that law enforce- ment is "what I've always wanted to do" that she has been "a little shocked by all of the attention" she was getting from the news media. Four other women were originally scheduled to be sworn in Thursday. Their ap- pointment has been delayed pending a court suit in which a male who was turned down for the job is contending he was the vicitim of sex dis- crimination. AVOIDS ISSUES Miss Robbins carefully avoided discussing women's liberation issues. Would she like to be called Miss or Ms.? "Just make it she said. What did she think of the suit by the man who claimed he was a victim of sex dis- crimination? "Well. I can see his point of view." she replied, "but I'm sure the other women are dis- appointed." The suit led to a temporary restraining order from state Supreme Court Justice Russell Hunt ol Albany blocking the swearing in ol the tour other women.
