GREEN'S SHOES ON SIXTH STREET SOUTH Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son and daughter-in-law just left mad. My husband and I are in our late 60s and not very well. They were here for Sunday supper, telling us in detail about the trip they are planning to South Am- erica. (They sail November Very casually our son said, "We'll leave Prince Cornwall with you. Of course we'll have all the instructions written name of the vet in ease he gets sick, a list of things he likes to eat as well as the things he doesn't like." Before he went further I toM him I wasn't up to taking Prince Cornwall, that Dad and 1 might want to go to Mexico City for a week, and I wish he'd make other arrange- ments. His wife cut in with, "You'll have to take him. He hates being in a kennel. When we left him there last year he nearly had a nervous breakdown. He wouldn't eat and looked ghastly when we came home." Well, Ann, one thing led to another and my husband lost his temper. The last thing my son said was, "You have really let us down. Alter all, what are parents for if you can't count on them when you need I was so upset I didn't sleep last night. Please, Ann, tell me what you think about this. Have we failed our Lansing, Mother DEAR LANSING: No, you have not failed your son and don't get to feeling guilty and collapse to his demands. If his idea of what parents are for is someone to leave his dog with when he goes on vacation, someone should set him straight. It sounds as if your husband did. Now forget it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I have a serious problem which is very hard to face, but I'll try. I'm a 16-year-old girl, and you could rightfully call me a tramp. I don't want to make any excuses for mystelf, but I really didn't know what I was doing. I started to go with guys when I was awfully young twelve, to be exact. I wanted to be grown up and popular so I did everything the boys asked me bo do. Naturally, my reputation is like dirt. I am sick of this kind of life and I know it leads to the gutter. But how does a girl let people know she has changed? When I'm with a guy and he tries something and I tell him he says, "Put that show on the road. I've heard all about you." Sometimes I get so disgusted I think "Oh, well, what's the use of trying to be decent? Nobody believes me. I'm Is the only solution to move to a far-away city where nobody knows me? I can't leave here for at least two more years and even (lien I wouldn't know where to go. Please help me. Trapped By The Past DEAR T.: Moving away is no answer. My advice is to start where you are with what you have, I suggest a new approach to life, based on what you've learned. People DO change, and in time the word will get around. For a girl lo consider herself finished at IS because she's made some fool- ish mistakes makes no sense. Remember you didn't get your reputation in one week, and you can't change it in one week. Be patient. You WILL achieve your goal if you stick with it.

Youthful panelist stresses hope REGINA (CP) Hope is an essential ingredient of life, del- egates to the annual meeting f the Catholic Women's jeague of Canada were told Vedncsday. Five panel members told an verflow audience of nly were ife without hope is a dc-sert. The panelist who best brought he message of hope home was 19-year-old Grade 12 student ivho told of her hopeless four ears as a drug addict, thief nd unmarried pregnant wo- nan. "Hope must be based on real- the tiny teen ager told :re women. "I started on drugs t age 15 lo escape from real- y after the death of my fath- r." Slie took speed and other il- :gal drugs and also tranquil- izers which were prescribed y her doctor. She finally faced the idea that le could not escape from life hrough drugs and looked for ope because "I wanted some- time more than absolutely O'-hing." The yoiing woman, who used nly the name Pal, received a .anding ovation as she told ow she learned to live hope, hich is the theme of the an- ufll meeting. V ork was a means of find- ig hope for Mrs. .1. A. Dechief, ice principal of the Harrow )cGroot school for mentally re- irded children in Regina. She elpetl establish the school, first s a kindergarten in a private omc, after her child was bom el-ardcd in iwn She said she had reaped a dividend of "love and from so many young peo- le" and from others. Elsie Luke, director of Ihc [arinn Centre which pinvides xxl and clolhing for transient en in Regina, said that hope omcs naturally to children, but lal inalurc hope is "born of "We hove (o suffer (o learn ope. We have to go through iffercnt deserts of unccr- inly, loneliness, dentil." But once Lhe suffering is ac- iplcd nnd the person works to share life with others, they can move on to hope and joy. Earlier, Rev. Lawrence De- Mong of Muenster, Sask.. told the women that they could fill a special role in bringing in the hope that is essential to the world, especially in today's world of war, pollution, suffer- ing, poverty and despair. "When we realize that biolo- gically and psychologically wo- man is the one, who having co- operated to produce a new life, envelopes, sustains, nourishes and brings it to birth, this per- spective can also characterize her role on a larger scale." Father DeMong said women are more capable than men of bringing the kind of hope that encourages life and growth in others, which he termed "an- xious patience." Delegates, who represent 000 league members across Canada got down to business sessions, with more than 20 res- olutions for presentation to the meeting, including ones on ways of taking action against abortion and advice to the fed- eral and provincial govern- ments on legislation for protec- tion of maltreatment and on the young offenders' act. love carving initials on a tree. Miss America-a vacuous myth By RALPH NOVAK There she is. The new Miss America. There they are, Lhe little misses of America, the 10- and 12- and 14-year-old girls. They are realising now il they haven't before that they are probably going to have to go through life without enjoying the ultimate experience of walking down a runway while Bert Parks sings a song to Uiem. Bert Parks, alLer all, sings his song only to girls who do not have buck teeth or crooked noses or flat chests or bowlegs or black skins or names that are identitiably ethnic. And most little girls have at least one of those handicaps. Maybe it is all harmless fim. Maybe it is no more de- structive to have a Miss America than it is to have a Most Valuable Player or a Pulitzer Prize winner or a Medal of Honor winner. Americans are perfection crazed; we are fascinated with Hie idea of purity, especially any purity we can label Made in U.S.A. So we have invented Miss America, with peaches and cream complexion, with disposition and mentality to match. The problem is that Miss America doesn't really exist, a fact that should become No. 1 on the list of things every young girl should know. Miss America is a myth conjured up from a concoction of male chauvinism, sexual fantasy, Puritanism and America's ingenuity at product-packaging. The girls who hold the title are homogenized symbols of what we are all supposed to want our daughters, sisters and wives to be, i.e., well-built with submissive dispositions. Since there has been some progress made they can, if they are careful, recite tentative opinions on substantive issues as long as (hose opinions do a pollle dog paddle down the mainstream of popular philosophy. And they can show their individuality by doing things like malting fondue instead of TV dinners. But they are Miss America basically because they are, somebody has decided, good-looking. Protest the pageant di- rectors do and at length. It is still a beauty contest. Looking good in a battling suit or an evening gowo, as Misses America must, has no Importance any place else but in a beauty contest, formal or informal. And if the Mln America winners are the most intelligent and talented young women in this country, we are in a lot of trouble. Since we don't want any Miss America with nose jobs, siliconized chests, or other artificialities, we disqualify most girls From the competition at birth. It would be unimportant if all they were losing was n chance at the contest in Atlantic City. But they arc also finding that their everyday lives are defined by a lifelong competition that centers on physical appearance. For little girls aren't the only ones who watch the Miss America pageant on television; little boys watch it, too, and learn from it what characteristics a virile young American male looks for in the young ladies whose favor he seeks. Anybody out there know of an instance where the most desirable boy in the local high school dates a fat girl, a skinny girl, a girl with acne? The thought processes that create Miss Hie Little Miss Americas, the Barbie dolls, the fetish for "beauty" as it has been promulgated for us by Hollywood, Madison Avenue and the cosmetics manufacturers are demeaning, or at least they should be. It is noble to strive for beauty and perfection. But surely beauty is something more than the absence of irregularity; surely perfection is something more than a vacuum. Surely we do not really want to say to our young women that to be happy it is sufficient as well as necessary to achieve excel- lence at smiling sweetly, smiling sweetly, smiling sweetly (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
