He has a wife who speaks no English and has no education in the western sense. "I wanted it this he said "You see young Moslems in cities like Mom- dasa, and they have nothing to do with religion I see a direct connection between European education and the weakening of religious faith." The new convert, whose first name was originally Kenneth, was born in Warsaw, Mo., and raised as a Methodist After graduating from the University of Kan- sas, he went into the peace corps, where he served two years as a teacher in Kenya. Becoming interested in the Swahili language and culture, which is Islamic, he stayed on in Kenya when his term was up Soon he found himself attracted to the religion of Islam. "I liked its concept of the unity of he said, "and I found it quite pragmatic and concrete. I also liked the fact that men are the basis of Islam. Christianity always seemed to me to be something for women. In Islam, if the men fall behind, then there is nothing left.'' In 1971 Shepardson became a Moslem and took his new first name. He prays regular- ly five times a day and follows such other Islamic precepts as abstaining from alcohol and pork. A year after his conversion. Shepardson made the Hadj. or pilgrimage to Mecca. Then he settled in Lamu, on the east coast, and. on the prompting of a friend, began to consider taking a Moslem wife. The friend selected Rabia. the daughter of Abdulrahiym Abdullah Khamis. a bus-ticket agent and approached her father with the proposal. Although it is not usual practice. Shepardson said, that he wanted at least a glance at his future bride before going through with the wedding. He visited her home unannounced and saw Rabia briefly "She was embarrassed." Shepardson recalled "It real- ly wasn't proper But 1 saw her face and said that I was agreeable Although it is not necessary to do so in the case of a ftrst marriage, the bnde-lo-be was given a choice She said that she would and the wedding took place in traditional Moslem style in the family's home, with men in the open courtyard and the women in a room Shepardson subsequently took his bride to Nairobi, where he works as Swahili editor at the Islamic foun- dation. They have an 8-memth old daughter. Husna. Relations between husband and wife in Islam are different from those in the United Stales "There is a sharp dis- tinction between the male and fenvle roles The Hometnaker By LINDA WHITSON District Home Economist in training Not everyone is good at everything in fact most of us prefer to ignore certain activities because we don't feel com- petent. On the other hand, everyone excells in something and quite often we try to persuade our friends to participate with us. Though this probably occurs more frequently among school-age peer groups the dilemma often faces adults as well. It reminds me of this story: "Once upon a' time, a group of animals decided to do something heroic to meet the problems of the new world, and so, they organized a school based on human values. They adopted an activity curriculum consisting of running, climbing, swimming and flying and to make it easier to administer, all the animals took all subjects. The "duck" was an excellent swimmer, better, in fact, than his instructor, but he was poor in running. Since he was slow in running, he had to stay after scool and also drop swimming to practice running. This was kept up until his web feet were badly worn and he was only average in swim- ming. "The "rabbit" started at the top of his class in running, but had a nervous breakdown because of so much extra work in swimming. The "squirrel" was excellent in climbing until he developed frustration in the flying class where his teacher made him start from the ground up instead of from the tree down. He also developed charlie-horses from over-exertion and then got a C in climbing and D in running. At the end of the year, an abnormal eel which could swim exceedingly well and could also run, climb, and fly a little, had the best average and was valedictorian Few of us are lucky enough to be as well rounded in our abilities as the abnormal eel. Kind of leaves us with something to think about, doesn't it? Especially now, when the swing of fall and winter activites is increasing it's there are "X" number of clubs to join, all sorts of lessons and courses to take and all those extra-curricular activities we want our kids to take part in. P S Good luck is a lazy man's estimate of a worker's success. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Your en- couragement to women who have had a breast removed was greatly appreciated by those of us who have gone through the experience. Mrs. Birch Bayh's letter which backed up your statements was a beautiful shot in the arm M" thanks to you both. And now a question, which I hope you won't think is foolish. I had a mastectomy in 1970 Since that time I have been wearing a bra with a built-in breast and it looks very natural. No one would suspect it wasn't real. But I have heard and read a great deal about those silicone im- plants for women who are flat-chested or want to be larger Would such an opera- tion be possible for those of us who have lost a breast to cancer? Will you check with an authority and let me know? Thanks and God bless. Greatful in Great Neck Dear G: I checked with one of the world's most dis- tinguished surgeons, a pioneer in the field of reconstructive surgery He is Dr. John Mar- quise Converse, at the New York University Medical Center. His reply is as follows "If, after a breast has been removed, the skin has remain- ed intact and is of good qual- ity, an implant can be placed under the skin thus re- establishing the breast con- tour and a degree of symmetry with the opposite breast. In some cases, however, the skin of the breast must be removed dur- ing the operation and the area skin grafted. In such cases the implant cannot be applied. "Some surgeons do not approve of placing an implant after an operation for cancer. In such cases, a prosthetic breast (made of rubber) is ad- vised. Thousands of women are wearing the false breasts built into their bras and find them completely satisfactory. The reconstructive operation can be performed by grafting tissue from the abdomen up to the breast, but a number of stages are required and the results are not very im- pressive So there you have it from the Ml of medicine. And now I hope you will return to your physician and see if you qualify for reconstructive surgery If he says no, please don't be unhappy. Thousands oi women are using artificial breasts built into their brassieres and they are in- distinguishable from the real thing Dear Ann Landers: I'm a woman. 26. and fairly sane, at least for the present I am now living with a man I love dearly He is not the problem. It's his parents. We moved in with them two years ago and it's more than I can take. J's mother is 68 His father is It's like living in a ger- iatric ward of a county hospital. There is no such thing as privacy. Oar bedroom is the only place I can relax. I could go on and tell you how unhappy I am, but I don't have that much ink in my pen. I've talked to J about moving, but he says we can't afford to right now I need a life alone with the man 1 love, i m SICK and tired of keeping house for his parents. What should I do? Old Before My Time Dear O. B.: Why don't you just shoot 'em? For heaven's sake, girl, don't you unders- tand that you moved in on THEM' If you're unhappy, how do you think his parents feeP My advice is to clear out either with Mr. Wonderful or without him.

Today, Miss Pritchard, who has a master's degree in arch- eology, is heading west to Re- gina to learn how to march, ride a horse, fire a revolver and absorb points of law. She was sworn in Monday along with Jolanta Eva Gier- gon. 25, and Heather-Ann Mary Phyllis, 19, both of Toronto, and Joanne Marie Whidden, 20, of Niagara Falls. Sgt. Maj. L. R. (Buck) Morse said 39 women applied in Toronto to become Moun- ties, but only six were accepted and six more are be- ing considered. The sergeant major said the women can marry at any time, can be posted anywhere in Canada and will do all the jobs men do. i After years of watching police work on television. Miss Pritchard says she finds it "fascinating although I know now they always don't get their man." Constable Giergon. a child care worker for six years, said she wanted "something new a challenge." Constable Whidden has two brothers in the RCMP in Burnaby. B.C. and Surrey, B.C. In Montreal. Tina Gladys Kivissoo exchanged the glamorous life of a model for handcuffs and a revolver when she was sworn in as an RCMP trainee Monday.
