Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our 17-year-old daughter has been dating a 19-year-old boy for the past year. Jim is a fine young man, a good student and a careful driver. Jim announced a few days ago that he has purchased a motor- cycle. Our daughter expects to ride with him. I have good reason to fear motorcycles. The sons of two close friends were nearly killed on motorcycles. A neigh- bor's daughter was In a motorcycle accident a few months ago and she will never walk or talk again. I told our daughter we will not allow her to ride on Jim's motorcycle and she is very upset. She assures me that Jim will handle the motorcycle with extreme caution. She also says if she is not permitted to ride with him he will drop her. I don't want to lose a lovely daughter, either on a motor- cycle or through lack of communication or understanding, but 1 know that if I say yes my heart will be in my mouth every minute she is away from home. Do I have the right to say NO? Lavonia, Mich. Mother DEAR MOTHER: You do and I hope you will. The National Safety Council has some blood-chilling sta- tistics on the annual carnage resulting from motorcycle acci- dents. You have every right to be apprehensive. If Jim dumps your daughter because she had the good sense to respect her parents' wishes, he was no bargain. (P.S. To all you cycle fans who may ho angered by my answer, please save your stamps. My stand is irreversible.) DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please tell everybody who reads English that when they reach a wrong number THEY are Inconveniencing someone it's not the other way around. Moreover, they have no right to ask, "Who is Several months ago I was the victim of a wrong num- ber. When asked, "Who is I refused to say. This so angered the questioner that she called four or five limes every night for months. My husband and I lost a great deal of sleep because of that woman's rudeness. The proper procedure, when one believes he has reached a wrong number, is to say, "I'm calling the Sormdso's resi- dence for Soandso Soandso. Do I have the right This does, not require that the party on (he other end reveal his identity. Thank you, Ann-, for performing a useful service. Hackles Up In Buffalo DEAR HACK: Most people, when they reach a wrong number, will continue to ask, "Who is I suggest that the person who receives the call ANSWER the question WITH a question: "Who are you DEAR ANN LANDERS: How do I find out if a girl I used to write to Is still living? Marie and I me! at a summer resort last year. We liked each other a lot. We wrote letters back and forth, until three months ago she stopped writing. Last week I ran into someone who lives in the same town. He oaid he had lienrd that Mazie died. I was shocked and asked for details but he said he knew her only casually and thought he had read something in the paper about it. He wasn't even sure it was the same girl. I don't want to write to her parents for fear of upsetting them. Yet I am anxious to find out about this. What do you suggest? C. Z., Jr. DEAR C.Z.: You can write to the office of the County Clerk In the area where the girl lives. State the girl's name and address and ask if they have a record of her death. Enclose n self-addressed, stamped envelope for the reply. If they tell you there is no record of her death, write to the gal and ask her to please drop a line because you've been concerned about her silence.

He said in an interview here hat children should be raised by VANCOUVER (CP) More :han half of the married women n the Vancouver area who wovk outside the home do so be- cause of financial necessity, the latus of Women Council of British Columbia said here. The council, in a report jased on a survey conducted under the federal local initia- tives program, said 75 per cent of women in the 30 to 50 age up would use day care f ac- uities if available, and 89 per cent said payment for child care should be shared by par- ents and government. The council's report said the fact that more than half the women doing paid work do so out of financial.necessity invali- dates the assumption the ivomen can be paid lower sal- aries than men. The survey also showed that 93 per cent of the women inter- viewed said they would vote for qualified women political candidate and 75 per cent said they would cross party lines to do so. "Parties considering nomina- ting women should be encourag- ed because a large number are willing to support a woman re- gardless of her the council said.

Minister quits her post in naked priest rumpus LUXEMBOURG (Reuter) Luxembourg's only woman cabinet minister, Madeleine Frieden-Kinnen, has resigned over the question of whether she saw a naked priest, it was disclosed recently. Mrs. Frierjen-Kinncn, min- ister of public health and family and youth affairs, said in a letter to Prime Minister Pierre Werner that she was resigning in order to better defend herself in a 'continuing controversy over whether she had in fact witnessed a Ro- man Catholic priest and a young man in the nude. The controversy goes back to August, 1969, when a Luxembourg paper, The Jour- nal D'Esch, reported that Kcv. Francois Haas, a teacher, practised nudism in public 'With one of his pupils, Eugene Schauss. The scene, near a farm where Mrs. Frie- den-Kiunen was staying, was alleged to have been wit- nessed by the government minister. Both the priest and the pu- pil were sentenced on charges of indecent behavior following the report. But Mrs. Frieden-Kinnen sued the newspaper for libel and won the case. On Schauss' evi- dence, the .court ruled that there was no proof that she had seen what was going on. However, the paper counter-attacked by suing Schauss for false evidence. It won the case and the court's ruling established that Mrs. Frieden-Kinnen could not have failed to see the naked priest. The legal battle continues with an appeal by Schauss against his perjury con- viction. llllllllHIIIIIHllllllllllIl mentation of recommendations made by the Federal Roya iommission on the Status o: Women.
