Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers Tuesday, September 11, 1973-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD omen Dear Ann Landers: You have printed letters from all sorts of far-out kooks some so nutty I was sure you made them up. But now I am laced with an honest-fo-goodness Ann Landers problem and I need your advice. Will you please be a good sport and help me? I was invited to a wedding and did not send in an accep- tance because I wasn't sure I could attend. I telephoned, however, and told the bride- to-be that I would try to be there, if it was possible. Due to circumstances 1 won't go into here, I was not able to attend. Three days later I received the following letter in the mail: Dear Ann Landers: I dye my husband's hair and have been doing it for nearly ten years. At first he objected but I convinced him it would be to his advantage to look younger. Finally he agreed. Now he wouldn't have gray hair on a bet. Here are the advantages of dyeing, as he sees them: A man who looks elderly is considered over-the-hill, terribly square and out of step with the times. When people think you are middle-aged instead of old, they treat you like a contemporary. This is bound to make a man more Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band and I are very particular about our diet. We eat only fresh vegetables from our gar- den, a lot of fruit and yogurt, homemade whole-wheat and nut bread, no meat and very little starch. A problem arises when we want to invite our parents or neighbors for dinner. We never know if we should serve them what we eat. or if we should buy meat, etc. I don't Dear---------: Since you did not attend my wedding after you had eon- finned the invitation. I feel that you should contri'bute toward the food. The cos it of each plate was and we had to pay for your reservation even though you did not attend. I would not ask you to do this but we are over in debt because people you said they were coming and did not show up. Your contribu- tion would help a lot. Very tru- ly yours Signature of the bride. Well, Ann: Did you What should I do? Still Stunned Dear S.S.: No, never! Now, forget it. cheerful. It lifts his spirits and improves his ability to func- tion sexually. I believe some women want to look younger than their husbands, which is why they dye their own hair but they don't offer to dye (.heir husbands'. What 'do YOU think. Fan in El Paso Dear El Paso: I think if I ever suggested to my husband that he let me dye his hair he would send rne in for a saliva test. If YOUR husband ilikes it. that's his business. To each his own. think people have a right to impose their life style on others. But cooking two different meals is a of trouble. What do you say? You Are What You Eat Dear Y. A.: It's not much trouble to throw a steak or a piece of fish under the broiler for guests who don't care for yogurt. Why not come right out and ask your guests what they would prefer?

"We're conscious of the commitment we have to the total community and that includes men. women and children." he told about 100 women's right demonstrators here. Joyce Meissenheimer. member of the executive of the provincial NDP party and spokesman for the standing committee on women's rights, said the protestors were demanding immediate action on previously approved party policy, including free 24-hour child day care, amendment of discriminatory labor legisla- tion and accessible abortion facilities. But Premier Barrett told the group the government can't solve all problems over- night, although it is moving as last as it can. Tradition is security in a hard way of life It's not always easy to recognize love, especially the first time around. Acquaint yourself with the guidelines.

THE BETTER HALF by trarnes "I've tried persuading you to get up, I've -tried browbeating you, I've tried ridiculing you. The next step Involves the use of the hat pin." CAUGHNAWAGA, Que. (CP) Her name is Kwaron- io-ta-kwen, or Tearing Down the Skies. "But you may call me Es- ther." she says. Esther Phillips is a Mohawk Indian who has lived on this reserve just south of Montreal since the day she was'born 52 years ago and has never con- sidered living anywhere else: She teaches Indian children the Mohawk language. Caughnawaga is a commun- ity where strictly defined tra- ditions and roles lend comfort and security to a life that isn't always easy. Friday nights, says Mrs. Phillips, the women stay home waiting for their men. About 75 per cent of the men are away all week, working on high steel construction in the United States, and they don't get home until late in the evening. Saturday nights everyone gathers at the Legion Hall and the women catch up on the week's news. That's when they find out who fell off what steel construction and how. Then on Sunday nights, the men leave again and the women settle down for an- other week on the reserve with the children. NO ORDINARY TOWN From the outside. Caughna- waga can look like any small town, with its population of 500 living in ordinary houses. Esther is amused by the Sunday afternoon curiosity seekers who visit the reserve. "Sometimes I'm sitting on my porch when these people stop and ask me: 'Could you please tell us where the In- dian reserve And I say: 'You're on it. We're all Indi- ans. And they have surprised looks on their faces and drive off." But the reserve is not like any other community, she says. Her advice to young In- dians is: stay. I'd never leave and the young Indians would never be happy living any place else, because we have a different way of life. "We like to be in groups, to- gether with our families. Even though a lot of my girl- friends are married to white way men. they always come back to the reserve for the sum- mer. "It's one big party and there's such a close kinship among "ourselves." SHUNS CREDIT BUYING She shops in the downtown department stores but never uses credit and prefers to buy essentials on the reserve be- cause they are cheaper. Keeping the family home in good repair is important to the Phillips. When there is a job to be done they hire In- dian workers because it is good for the community's economy. It gets cold in Caughnawaga in winter. A biting wind cuts in low and hard from the St. Lawrence River and drives the snow high against the homes. Yet the main source of heat is an imposing ornate wood stove. Three, four suits only in good basic wardrobe Choose shoes for the whole family from our selection of name brands. SMOGS FOR THE FAMILY Joe Green's SHOES Downtown on Sixth Street By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO (CP) A plain suit is too expensive for wardrobes, not because it costs more to start with, but because it's too dressy to be worn everywhere. Lou Miles says: "A good wardrobe should start with three or four suits. A man never needs more than that. "A basic suit is important, to take a guy to daytime meetings and out in the eve- ning. "A chalk stripe suit will do the same thing a plain navy blue will do. and you can wear it more." Mr. Miles is a retailer who .is also a designer who has his own factory because he says he was unable to get what he wanted from other manufac- turers. He says: "The next suit should be a hounds tooth or a glen check. The third suit could be a blazer and trousers or perhaps a beige or grey flannel, and I think that's a basic start for a man's ward- robe." He says he feels a man should search until he finds a clothing store whose staff is knowledgeable and willing to give some thought to helping him look his best. AVOID WRINTKLES "Most retailers don't know anything about clothing. Their stores are like cigar stores. He opens a store, buys a few manufacturers' lines of clothes and shirts and when he runs out. orders more of the same." One test of a good store is whether a salesman points out things that need adjusting before the customer does. "When a man is trying on a jacket, the first should ai is whether it is liattering (u him. It hang smoothly, with n- rip- pies or wrinkles. "If you swing your arms and can do it with freedom, the jacket is probably too big. It won't fit. it will hang too loose in the back when you stand normally. "The chest, shoulders and thigh are the most important part of the fit. If he has a pot, you shouldn't try to fit the pot. You fit his 38 figure by letting out the waist, you don't move up to a size 40." SHUN EXTREMES Mr. Miles says men should avoid fashion extremes, even when they buy sports clothes. "I say you can wear a good suit for 10 years. I don't think a man who has a wardrobe of three or four suits could ever wear them out. "One of the most important things in fashion is what a suit should look like five years from the day he buys it. He should be able to wear it without looking ridiculous. "Today, a man can go al- most anywhere and get good taste. We aren't going to see as many gaudy things as three or four years ago. "I think men's fashion cycle is about every nine years, and right now we're waiting for something, we're a little stale." He is predicting the return to classic styles. "You definitely should buy a vest. For fall, 99 per cent of the suits will have vests."
