Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I've been writing to young man who Is stationed in Germany. I have never met Kim but he is a friend of my cousin who is also stationed there. According to my cousin, this fellow is tops. We have been corresponding for five months and he sounds like my kind of man. We have exchanged snapshots, poetry and small gifts. My aunt came to visit last week and my mom mentioned my "mail-order romance." Auntie asked if she could see a sample of my friend's handwriting because, according to her, handwriting can tell more about a person than months of face-to-face conversation. "A person can fool you by being a good actor, but his handwriting tells the real she an- nounced with a tone of finality that has always made me dislike her. I reluctantly showed Auntie three paragraphs of a recent letter She bellowed, "Drop him. The way he dots his 'i's' shows he is impatient- The style of his 'm' indicates he is caustic and sharp-tongued. He does not close his os at the top, which means he is talkative, shallow, and probably bore." I was crestfallen and annoyed. Is there anything to what she says? I am very upset. To Know In Jackson- ville DEAR JACK: Handwriting analysis Is more of a parlor game (and a business) than- a science. It Is not possible Jo analyze a person's personality or character by examining his handwriting. I have made this statement before and the results have been incredible. Thousands of letters from indig- nant handwriting "experts" poured in nearly every one type- written! DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read your comment to "Pittsburgh Lament" and I am boiling. What do you think about my situation? My husband and I are in our 50's. After a hectic three involved unbelievably nightmarish hassles with his wile, h was able to get a divorce and marry me. Now, two years later, he gets a hysterical phone call from his ex-mother-in law. It seems his former wife is in a state of near collapse. She simple cannot handle their two teen-agers. The gir (age 16) has just had her second abortion and the boy (age 15 is dropping acid and sniffing glue. "You must take these she shrieks. "II is your moral responsibility! I raised three children who are all college graduates and making good lives for themselves. Now my husband tells me I have to help him with these monsters. Of course I am leaving. Did I have a choice? -Too Young For Suicide DEAR TOO YOUNG: Yes, you had a choice but you weren't equal to it. I nm sorry for all of you especially those pathetic kids.

Boutiques are buying "used" fashions from individuals and clothing depots, cleaning and re- pairing and recycling them. Not just any old clollies will do.

Groenen, photo ___ Mrs. Clark Is making about a month as a hospital technician but she says the ad- vantages of being off welfare go far beyond the money. Her whole way of life has hanged. No longer do her chil- ren come home after fighting ith other kids because they ere teased about being on wel- ire. Welfare became an obses- on with me and I desperately wanted lo get off it and be able support my family on my wn." Welfare had been her only re- -ourse aftBT a divorce in 1966. 'here was no other way to sup- her family. SECORDS LOST Her social worker suggested he Manpower retraining pro- jam. Aptitude tests indicated she was there was hitch. Although she had finished sec- ondary school in Belfast, North- ern freland, school records :iod been destroyed in a fire. "I had the equivalent of sen- ,or matriculation. It was also felt my education was anti- quated.1' So at age 34 It was back to Grade 9 to start two years of basic skill training. Two more years of training at the North- em Alberta Institute of Technol- ogy enabled Mrs. Clark to be- come a respiration therapy technologist. Mrs. Clark now feels that everyone should go back to school every 10 years. "When I was a housewife I stagnated. By JEAN SIIAHP CP Women'! Editor TORONTO (CP) Sesame Street's Susan says she thinks the schools will start changing because kids have already changed. "Schools are going to have to change, the children are going to be able to change them faster than the adults. "The energy and desire to Jearn they have is great, they're just like little sponges. "For the most part teachers are happy for the help Ses- ame Street givss them. They tell us the children have so many concepts they don't have to concentrate on, that they're wondering .what to do with the non- Sesame watch- ers." Susan, who is Loretta Long in private life, was in Toronto with Happy Time '72 at the Canadian National Exhibition. She said in an interview, she believes the cliildren's tel- evision show changes steadily, but the criticisms of it stay the same. "I'm asked about the same criticisms all the time. The criticisms travel like dirty jokes, and they aren't even valid. "We hope that we grow and change, but it's nothing that puts me uptight. I'm prouci of tiie Workshop, proud to work for it." The Ctiildren's Television Workshop produces Sesame Street. Mrs. Long has been a teacher and is working for her doctorate in urban education at the University of Massa- chusetts. She dismissed the charge j that Sesame leaches by rote and doesn't help its audience of pre-schoolers to compre- hend what it learns. "It's kind of heady stuff when three-year-olds learn the alphabet and numbers. "I take my rough test from parents who come up and say their kids are learning and en- joying it, and not just three to five years old, they're as young as IB months. "Whether they comprehend is kind of a superficial argu- ment. Some people feel tliere'a only one road to Mecca." She said she feeU the tame way about the charge that the show is sexist, that she al- ways appear: in the kitchen and the men have all the an- swers. "Ths first year we did trade kind of heavy in the milk and cookies syndrome, but that's changed. "Besides, it's kind of funny to pick on Sesame Street." Its originator is woman, the corporation has a woman lawyer. "Now on the show the roles of the adults are interchange- able. The kids are just as likely to see me playing bas- ketball." She said people can always see what they're looking for. PICKED BY CHILDREN Mrs. Long said a group of feminists put on a seminar for the Sesame crew, and showed WeeWhimsv them that cex discrlmlnathai may sometimes be uncon- scious. That straightened our writ- ers out." One of the original cast, began her association with the ihow partly because one of set designers knew her. "I'd been a teacher, ami at the time I had my own local television show. "Our auditions were taped and taker, lo child centres, and the c h 11 d r picked us." Her husband, who was her manager before he was her husband, encouraged her to try show business. "While I was teaching, I was giving all my money to other teachers for drama and singing lessons." Her husband Is still her manager, he works with Workshop, and is beginning his own business as a pro- gram package consultant for cable television. "We have a great deal in common. He knows I work hard, and it isn't all glamor. "It's good, and It's bad sometimes, when husbands and wives work together." F.O.E. BINGO TONIGHT EAGLES HALL 61 h Ave. A and I3lh St. N.

That's why, the publisher of the 155-year-old Fanners' Al- mac, said in an interview here recently, the 1972 edition of the well-known United Stales publication still has jokes about women in it. They're more guarded than they used to be, he said, but the tone of fun continues. Mr. Oeiger, editor of the almanac for 39 years, cited such an example: "A woman should marry an older man for, as her beauty fades, so does his eyesight." "Women should be able to accept having a little fun poked at he said. "And women should still be Idolized by men. We shouldn't lose the romance from our lives." Special Wig Safe!
