Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta .Monday, September 11, 1972 THE LETHBMDGE HERALD 13 Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: You've been good about giving a lift to what is probably the most abused segment of society in America's working force. I refer to telephone operators. Will you print just one more tetter, please We are all aware that on legal holidays such as Christmas, Labor Day and the Fourth of July all business establishments we closed. On other special days such as St. Patrick's Day, Ash Wednesday, and SI. Valentine's Day most businesses carry on, as usual. >Vhat'bugs me is when people call up and ask, "Are you open On March 17 1 had no less than 100 such idiotic phone calls. B'inally I lost my temper and yelled, "Of course, we're open you nut, or I wouldn't be answering this Then there's the dim-wit, who wants to speak to Mr. Big- wheel and when the operator says "lie's on another call" he'll ask, "Will he be How in the world do I know? if I say, "I think he'll be on this call a while" the person be- c6mes irritated because he figures 1 don't want to put him through. If 1 say, "I think it will be a brief call please he gels mad if he has to wait more than IS seconds and he is sure I gave him a bum steer. I guess what I'm trying to say is, "Ann, you can't win." Sign Centipede in Center Cily Dear Cent: I hope you'll excuse me if I seem stupid, but I think it makes sense to phone and ask, "Are you open to- Some business establishments close at noon on certain holidays which are not considered "legal." As for your other gripes, I agree, they are valid, but un- fortunately, 1 can think of no quick cure for supersensitive or slightly paranoid personalities. DEAR ANN LANDERS: A belated thanks from a reader for printing that letter about the woman who kept an iguana in the bathtub. My only regret is that you didn't print a letter like it ten years ago. I've been running a free hotel and dining room, complete with maid service, for a pack of free-loading relatives who have (he unmitigated gall to bring their friends to our home for vacations. I finally began to question my sanity when my cousin demonstrated his gratitude for my hospitality by fall- Ing asleep with a lighted cigarette in his hand. Luckily I smelled the smoke and put oul the fire before he burned the house down. The only damage was a charred mattress. In- stead of apologizing and offering to replace the mattress he wanted to know why I would have such a cheap, flammable thing in the house. That incident brought me to my senses. When I asked my husband why my relatives lake advantage of me so shamelessly, he replied, "Because you allow it." His answer stopped me dead in my tracks. Of course he was right. Why don't you perform a national service and pass on those words of wisdom to your readers? And, by the way. Ann, please tell me where I can buy an Up With Sponges DEAR FED: Those "words of wisdom" have appeared in this column so often you can put them to music and dance to them. I have been telling people for 17 years that no one can impose on a person who refuses to allow it. It takes two 'to play that kind of game. If you heed this advice, you won't need an iguana. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'gave birth to a lovely baby boy recently. We had been trying to have a child for five success. I went through major surgery as a last resort (o get pregnant. I tell you all this so you'll know how thrilled we are to be parents. Before the baby arrived my husbanti and I had some long talks about what to name our firstborn. Roy wanted to name the child after his father. I wanted to name him after my fatlier. We compromised by agreeing to by-pass both fathers because of such strong feelings involved. We settled on Derek Lylc because we liked Hie sound of it. Now both my father aud Roy's father have let us know ihey are very upset with us for selecting a name simply because we liked It when we have perfectly good relatives on both sides. You can't believe the unhappiness this ha: caused us. My husband wants to rename the baby, using both our fathers' names. It would mean changing the birtl certificate. I don't want to do it. Please advise Mini War DEAR MINI: Naming a child is the prerogative of the parents. You've made your choice and your parents shoulc have accepted it and kept their disappointment to themselves, If you have another ctiild you might consider naming him (or her) after the grandpapas, but this child's name shoulc remain as is.

Cook as hostess. Brazilians bound by restrictive laiv RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Brazil Is the biggest country in the world where divorce is im- possible, and it looks as though things will stay that way. The justice committee of the House of Representatives has rejected a proposal to hold a referendum on divorce in 1974. The only legal way to break a marriage is by desquite, or offi- cial separation. Then neither spouse is allowed to remarry. Thousands o f legally-sepa- rated men and women go out- side the law and live together with new partners. This rela- tionship has no validity in im- portant areas such as property menl party, ownership and wills. The desquite is a complicated and costly process, if requested after a couple have been mar- ried more than two years. It is granted on the grounds of adul- tery, desertion, cruelly or slan- d e r o u s accusations. Any of these has to be proven beyond a doubt in court. In the case of adultery, judges may demand photographic evidence of a sex- ual act. Most cases drag on for years mainly because major cities lack enough family courts to deal with the increasing re- quests for rlesqultes. Rio, with more than four million inhabit- ants, has six family courts to deal with about requests a year. Senator Nelson Carneiro, a 61 -year-old widower who has campaigned for a change in the law, says: "About 97 per cent of all the people on earth can get divorced, but we can't." "He Is a member of the Brazilian Demo- cratic Movement, the only polit- ical parly allowed to function aside from the official govern- cleaning make for a sometimes. lady very it doesn't tidy setup, Ma Nan Soe is probably the richest child in the country. Ma Nan Soe made medical history and with it accumulated a bank account of more than fortune in this poor socialist country. She now is less than two years old and walks and talks like a normal child. Ma Nan Soe was one of Sia- mese twin girls born on Feb. 20, 1971, to peasant U Sein My a Gyi and his wife Daw Daw Pon in a village of East Bassein in the Irrawaddy Delta. The twins were at the chest and stomach. Doctors attempted the first operation ever in Burma on Sia- mese twins and successfully separated them July 7, 1971. The public was touched and gifts of money, food and medi- cine rolled in for the two girls. But Ma Nan Soe's twin sister Ma Nan San lived only five weeks after the operation. She died Aug. 14, 1971, from an infection due lo colic perfora- She doesn't like cleaning and isn't fond of cooking meals, giv- ing her n strong sense of sister- hood with the members of wo- men's liberation groups, al- though she herself has never been a protester. Shirley would like the chance lo work seriously at, her paint- puts down on canvas. Her paintings have to do with ompetition, co-operation, op- ision of minorities while ymbolizing the social solutions he sees possible through a free mingling of colors, cultures and religious philosophies. What the election result is go- ng to mean to the family has ier a little worried, Practically, they should move o Victoria. But the boys are holding because of school and friends. She and Dave would like a solution that would permit tiie amily to stay together and 'we're coming to terms with she says.

A three-man board- of trustees has been set up to look after Ma Nan Soe's bank account, which will be used to ensure her fu- ture health and education. Whatever is left will be given to her when she reaches the age of maturity or marries. Ma Nan Soe now lives in a children's hospital here under [he constant care of staff nurse and three social workers. She will remain at the hospital until she turns five.
