Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Help me, please. I'm ahoul to go out of my mind. My husband and I got into an argument over some small thing. One word led to another and before we knew it we had a terrific fight going. In the hoat of the battle I said something about his mother. Then he blurted out that six years ago he had had an affair with my sister. She was only 16 at the time. My husband and were both working very hard thai summer and I had invited my sis to stay rath us and take care of the children. My husband said the affair lasted all summer. My sister married when she was 18 and was divorced at 20. She is now Uving with my mother. To say I was shocked by all this is putting it mildly. Now I wonder If we should cancel our plans to go visit Mom in September since Sis is still living with Mom. I remember that she and my husband seemed quite chummy last summer when we were all together. My husband swears there is nothing between them and he has asked me to have faith in him. Mom knows nothing about tlu's. Should I tell her so she'll know why we changed our plans? Or should we go? No Name No City DEAR N.N.N.C.: Go. And keep your mouth shut. It's tad enough that YOU know. Don't upset your mother with this beautiful news. When a man asks you to have faith in him, you should make every effort to do so. And you can prove that you trust him by being relaxed in other words, don't watch him like a hawk. He'll appreciate it and it could do a lot to strengthen your marriage. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have been married less than three months and I must know if my husband is crazy or if am the one. When he goes to bed at night he always lines his shoes up so the heels are together and toes point out to form a V. When he puts his leather belt through the loops on iu's trousers, .he always misses one loop, the one over his left kidney. Be- fore he tosses his socks in the hamper he ties them together. I've asked him a dozen times not to but he insists he does it "unconsciously." I'm beginning to think something is mentally wrong with him. Can you explain these strange little habits? No amount of "reminding" such as, "you skipped one of the belt loops, makes any difference. Thanks for your help, Ann. Spooked In Spokane DEAR SPOOK: He is not trying to annoy you. These "strange little habits" are neurotic compulsion? that have probably been with him for years. Be thankful his compulsions are harm'ess. Less fortunate women are married to compul- sive drinkers, gamblers and skirt-chasers. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Everyone wants to be ''happy" but how few people know what happiness is, 1 found a fine definition in an old handbook of The Memphis Parents League. Print it, please. "We must help our children understand that happiness Is a by-product of other factors self-respect, service to others, work well done. Happiness is a state of heart. It is intangible. No amount of money can assure us of it. It is natural for parents to want their children to happy. But we cannot give it to them. They must earn it." Header DEAR T.R.i Excellent. Thank you for sharing. Please send inquiries and requests lo Landers Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wahash Avc., Chicago. III. 60611.

Mrs. F. S. Lucas of Saska- toon, Sask., the league's direc- tor for family life, urged dele- gales lo the convention's clos- ing session to seek out the help of all concerned people in their fight. The delegates responded by unanimously supporting resolu- tions expressing opposition to any move that would remove abortion from the Criminal Cede of Canada and asked the federal 'government to drafl stricter legislation lo replace the current law. The resolutions on abortion were among 26 passed by Die The delegates approved a res- olution asking UK federal gov- ernment to extend the morator- ium on capilal punishment for further study. The resolution sfiid the five-year period sel out In the current legislation was too short a period to assess the results of the experiment. THE BETTER HALF 3 By Barnes Feminist leader slams papal decree The moratorium, except in cases 'of the.murder of police- men and prison guards, was enacted in 1967. It is to be dis- cussed by Parliament at the end of the period next year. The league also asked the federal justice minister lo re- view criminal court procedures with a view lo using alternative forms of punishment lo impris- onment. The league said proba (ioii for offenders in lesser (ypes of crime was an alterna- tive as was the use of restitu Uan by an offender to the of- fended" party. The delegates elected Mrs. A. A.

MARCO ISLAND, Fla. (API Fishing from a row bo at is a bit tame for a woman who was born aboard a schooner, but 91-year-old Emma Hudson says any way of going to sea is fine for her. Mrs. Hudson, who calls her- self "Ihe oldest living native of Marco lives in a white frame house nestled under a huge shade tree on this island off Florida's Gulf Coast SO miles west of Miami. She was only a few days old when she first saw the island from the decks of the Emma White, the mail schooner which her sea captain father named for her mother. Mrs. Hudson has 'seen the island change from a pristine wilderness with a handful of residents to a popular retire- ment and vacation mecca with condominiums sprouting where mangroves used to grow. Lately, her main enjoyment has been daily fishing dips for snapper, snook and chan- nel bass. She used to run a power boat, but when it wore out five years ago, her daugh- ter, Mrs. George Pattison, refused to get her another one. "She just went too far in the power Mrs. Pattison said. didn't know where she was half the time and it worried us out of our mind, so we decided she should slick to a rowboat." Mrs. Hudson is only five feel tall and weighs less than 100 pounds, but she still in- sists on doing the rowing, even if she has young male guests along. BAITS HER SUPPER Each day, she picks up hait from the Coon Key Pass Mar- ina run by her son-in-law, George Pattison, and rows to her favorite fishing spots. She usually conies home with t nice mess of snapper or sea trout. When Hurricane Donna ap- proached in 1960 and most residents fled to the mainland, Mrs. Hudson refused to go. She put her parakeet on top of the refrigerator, placed ths dog in the sink, climbed up on the drainboard and announced she was going to sit it out. Mrs. Pattison stayed with her mother as the water rose inside the house and the waves slashed savagely against the shoreline. "I was scared, but she Mrs. Pattison said. "She just sat through it all very calmly and waited for the wind to die." George Pattison -was away at the time. When lie got home next day, he found his mother-in-law sit- ting on her water-logged back porch eating a quart of ica cream. She explained, ''No power. No refrigerator. No need to waste ice cream."
