24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Wtdneidov, September 22, 1971 Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I had a dale a neal chick on Friday the 13th and she nearly drove me mils. To begin with she wore her dress backwards to "svard otl the evil spinls." Then she tied a red handkerchief over her head so ''the swallows o[ sorrow would not nest in her hair." As we left bar apartment she spit on her palm and stamp- ed it before locking the door. Then she warned me rot to step on a crack or it would break my mother's back. Before we ualkcd into the cafe she stopped, put her left shoe on the right foot, her right shoe on the left fool, and kissed the hem of her dress. When 1 told her to cut out the nonsense she replied, "This is Friday the 13th and I am not taking any chances." Please tell me if this girl has all her marbles. She's highly intelligent and I can't un- derstand why she is so hung-up. P.S. I am NOT interested in marriage. I just want to go her. Thanks for your Reader DEAR AUSTIN: Superstition is based on has nothing to do with logic or intellect. She might make i wonderful your tongue. DEAR AMN LANDERS: 1 got a tack out of your col- umn a few days ago when Miss York, Pa. asked if she should marry a giiy whose grammar was atrocious. He made such mistakes as "1 seen" and ''have went." You put her nose back in joint by telling her she might not be as far above the giiy as she since she misspelled the word grammar throughout her letter. YOU, Ann, misspelled the word misspelled. It's got hro s's, Call Me Miss Pell from Kansas City DEAR PULL: Not guilty. I checked the mimeographed copy which was mailed to all my client papers and I spell- ed misspelled correctly. The mistake occurred at your pa- per. But before the typesetters climb my frame again, let me make it perfectly clear that in this day of automation it may well have bacn a computer error. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I just read the letter from the big galoot who signed himself "Color Me Gone." I'm so fu- rious I can't see straight. My sister was married to a bully like thai ant! I'm sure i[ she had shot him, no jury would have convicled her. There are maybe women in this country who wish they could color themselves espe- cially after the brutes they are married to have colored them black and blue a few times. But it isn't so easy to pick up and leave a man when you have small children, no money, and no parents who will take you in. So these trapped, miserable women make the best of it. "Color Me Gone" has a lot to say about his wile's ex- cess weight and the fact that she is a bore and not up on things. He also criticizes her [or not being a good sex partner. I wonder when he last brought her a little gift, a handful of her she was important to him. Most men who criticize their wives for being slobs treat them like hired help. They save their company manners for some tramp who isn't fit to be in the same room: with their wives. If I sound lilie a bitter woman, believe me I am not. My own husband is a wonderful man. He has made me feel wanted and loved. But my little sister's life has been hell because she married a rat. I've seen her change from a delightful, fun-loving girl inlo a sick old woman I hope you will print this letter, Ann. It will be a wel- come cuange from the pro-male letters I have read so often in your Reader DEAR CHAT: Here's your letter. 1 agree that every slory has two sides. Sometimes three. DEAR LANDERS: I liked your answer to the lady who showed pictures of lier dog when the women she work- ed with bragged about their children and passed around snap- shots. I have both children and pets, and I can tell you quite honestly that I've had more pleasure from my pels than I've had from my Ihree sons. I have never demanded anything of my children, just hoped lo raise them to be good citi- zens and independent. They are both. I am now in my 70's, live alone (wouldn't have it any other way) ami I have two Yorkshire terriers and a Persian cat. The four of us get along beautifully. I am just as proud of their little shennanigans as I am of my sonsj achievements which are considerable. The terriers and "Super- have distinctive personalities. The cat La is a real aristocrat. They are wonderful company. I am never lonely. I'm sure sumc of my neighbors think 1 am odd but I don't care. My pets fill a void in my life and I am not ashamed to admit neighbor To The North DEAR NEIGHBOR: Tliank you for writing. I can't help but feel a little sad [cr the mother of three sons who must look lo a cat and two terriers to fill "the void in her life." I hope your sons are happy with thsir "achievements."

Even marry ihc president's daughter White House aides makes guests teel at ease I WASHINGTON (API I Should a guest at the White House suddenly feel faint, some- one will quickly step lo his side and help him lo a chair. Should an unescorted woman be left looking like a wallflower, someone will swirl her around the dance floor. Should a guest get a bit loo much into the spivii ot Ihuigs at a White House function, you can bet that someone will get him a cab, and see that he gels into it. These are among official duties which fall to the White House social aides, 36 military officers, all young and single, stationed in the Washington Youthful Crown attorney first woman in Manitoba WINNIPEG (Cm Hull; Knndle says she's pleased lo be he first woman appointed a Crown attorney in Manitoba and hopes soon lo improve on her ad libbing. The ad libbing comes when Miss Krindlc, a bright-eyed Winnipcgger in her laic 20s, is faced with prosecuting cases that she hasn't had time to pre- pare. Recently, for example, she went to the small lown of Mor- ris knowing about three cases "When I got there, I discover- ered 12 cases were scheduled to be heard. I had no time at all to prepare myself. But you leam best from your mistakes." Miss Krindle's previous court- room experience was mostly wilh accident, divorce and labor court claims. Now she deals al- most exclusively with offences against criminal and provincial law. She says that to survive as a novice Crown attorney takes a certain improvisational ability, a good constitution and a great deal of self confidence. Miss Krindle worked with two law firms for a lotal of four years after graduation and has found more personal freedom since assuming her new position at the start of August. In private practice, she was under more pressure and clients often expected her to look some- how different, "not that I ever did discover what a female law- yer should look like." The detail is extra duty, but (here's no shortage of candi- dates, even though the job Car- rie- no pay, and entails addi- tional expenses. The aides have to pay for cleaning their own uniforms, usually dress whites, and provide their own transpor- tation to and from work. Still the job is not without its compensations. The main lure, say former social aides, is the chance to mingle among the i great and near-great at While House functions. And there's al- ways the case of Chuck Robh, I who got inlo the While House as a social aide and departed as the husband of former president Johnson's daughter, Lynda Bird. Social aides are nominated by Uieir respective services. Re- quirements Include an impecca- ble military record, poise and personality. Those who pass these tests get a final screening by Ihe While House social secre- tary. The aides' main duty is In make each White House guest feel at ease. Since that may re- quire an occasional waltz, danc- ing ability Is importnt. It is not. however, a strict require- ment. Although the aides' role is purely a social one, the Whitn House carefully guards their identities. Aides spend long hours stand- ing in receiving lines at the presidmt's elbow, advising him on such tilings as where to stand for official photographs, and prompting him on of guests. The aides spend hours poring over pictures of family, friends, special guests, cabinet, officers, Supreme Court members, mili- tary officers, senators, con- their wives. While (he social aides work odd and often long hours, those interviewed agreed the excite- ment of attending White House functions was reward enough for the extra effort. So far as the White House is concerned, the advantages are obvious. "Where said one for- mer aide, "could they get such cheap labor."

She finds survival lakes a certain improvisationa! ability, o good constitution and a great deal of self-confidence.
