; i° Lifestyles if Margaret Mead: 'Life is so unpredictable ' : >• r 4)' By Marian Christy * g (Editor's note: This is the final ar~ S, tide in a two-part series on Margaret 5 a Mead, anthropologist.) ?t« Margaret Mead is in the winter of ; Jg her life. ^f*. Age, like fine wine, is often a tongue- loosener. As life winds down, there is Jess need, less pressure to hold back : strident thoughts which are honest. There is no time to consider people's reactions to shrillness. It is a wonderful release. Dr. Mead has given frankness a high priority. Now she is talking piercingly about the strained quality of living: "Life is so unpredictable," she sighs. "You buy a car which is always in the garage for repairs. If you travel, you never know where the light in the bathroom is." She is smiling at that fumbling word-picture of life in a hotel room. "You pay $30 to get a $5 gadget installed in this or that appliance. Everything is out of gauge ..." Margaret Mead is sighing. Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Espinosa (Sara Rogge) Rogge-Espinosa Marriage vows were exchanged by Salinans Sara Rogge and Dennis Espinosa, Feb. 25 at the St. John's Lutheran Church. Parents of the couple are Dr. and Mrs. Stanley C. Rogge, 136 W. Minneapolis, and Mr. and Mrs. John Espinosa, 811 Osage. Dr. Rogge and the Rev. Jearald Shaft, Lindsborg, officiated. Musicians were Mrs. Morris Carlson, Salina, and Mrs. Jearald Shaft, Lindsborg. The bride wore a chapel train gown of ivory satalustre organza and venise lace. Her mantilla-type nylon illusion veil, edged in scalloped lace, was attached to a Camelot cap of matching lace. Maid of honor was Dana Rogge with Joyce Shaver, bridesmaid. Both are of Salina. Best man and groomsman: Gene Hardesty, Salina, and Jerry Dean, Beloit. Other attendants: Preston Espinosa and Matthew Rogge, botri of Salina, and Bill Rogge, Lawrence. Salinans Mr. and Mrs. David Holmgren assisted at the reception in Lantz Hall of the church. A buffet and dance followed at the Cavalier Court with Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Holmgren, Salina, assisting. The bride graduated from South High School and attended Bethany College. She is a key puncher in date processing at the Saline County Clerk's office. Her husband, a Central High School graduate, works for the United Parcel Service. They are at home in Salina, after a wedding trip to Breckenridge, Colo. Clark-Sloan Pamela Marie Clark, daughter .of Mrs. Ron Utter, 831 Cherokee, and Clifford Clark, Salina Rt. 1, became .the bride of Reece W. Sloan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Sloan. 920 E. Beloit, Feb. 25 at the Bel Air Baptist Church. Receiving their vows was the Rev. J. D. Cooper, with Mrs. Nancy Ellis, Salina, musician. Lace accented the bride's ecru-colored gown, worn with a matching hat. Honor attendants were Doreen Tower, Salina, and Royce W. Sloan, Hutchinson, brother of the bridegroom. A reception followed at the home of the bride's father and stepmother. Mrs. Sloan is a Central High School graduate. The groom graduated from Ness City High School and works for Bunge Corp. He and his bride are at home at 518 W. Walnut. Paintings on display at Concordia bank CONCORDIA - An exhibit of paintings is now on display at the Clouq County Bank and Trust Company. The collection of 20 oils, watercolors and acrylics features the work of 11 artists from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. The exhibit is on loan from Lawrence's Valley West Galleries, owned and managed by Marlyn Brown, a member of the Advisory Council of the Kansas Arts Commission. The paintings can be seen during banking hours in the bank's downtown lobby through March. She hammers home the fact that her mother had servants. "I've always had servants," she adds somewhat haughtily. Then she weighs the more meaningful side of her privileged background. The self-evaluation is promoted by a question about whether or not her mother was a feminist. She folds her hands again. She is regressing in thought. It's as if her spirit has left the table. Margaret Mead is at another time, in another place. "I have distinct memories of my mother working on proofs of my father's books," she says nostalgically about the late Prof. Edward S. Mead, University of Pennsylvania. "And my mother was a sociologist who did the first study on Italian immigrants. In fact we moved to Hammonton, N.J., so that my mother could be near the people she was studying." Pause. Dr. Mead has returned to the interview. "How many husbands would move so that a wife could be close to her work?" The question, obviously of major impact to a younger, more impressionable Margaret Mead, gives her pleasure now in her old age. She makes a final point about her parents and herself. "They were two generatins ahead of their time," she speculates about her parents. "So am I." Trouble goes deeper than ashtrays By Ann Landers Dear Ann: For over 35 years, I have emptied ashtrays and washed them. I am allergic to smoke, but that doesn't seem to bother my husband or many of our relatives and friends. I can turn blue before their eyes, choke, gasp and nearly pass out. They go right on smoking. 1 told my husband a few weeks ago that I refuse to empty or wash another ashtray. I am sick of dumping stinking cigars and cigarets, picking up butts from the floor of the garage, the patio, pool areas, the lawn and even the living room rug. So now I am treated like the offender because I have taken a stand. My chauvinist pig says cleaning ashtrays is part of "housekeeping." Is it? Even if it makes me sick? I need a yes or a no from you. If you aren't on my side, Toddi ' -- - --. •. : .**r .• - : Pledge KSU sororities MANHATTAN — A Salinan and three area coeds were among 16 women pledged by sororities following an open rush at Kansas State University.

I already have more trouble than I can handle. — Asphyxiated. Dear Phyx: I am on your side, but I don't think it's going to make a shred of difference to the chauvinist pig. Something tells me the trouble in your house goes deeper than the ashtrays. Have you considered discussing the entire situation with a professional? Please do. * * * Dear Ann: I realize the War Between the States is over, but I was really bugged by that Virginia gal who hates Pennsylvania. I came from Pennsylvania to the Washington-Virginia area 19 years ago as a bride. If my husband and I weren't so much in love we never would have made it. Wherever you go in northern Virginia you have to stand in line either to. buy it, return it, or try to see it.

If I had my druthers I'd druther be anyplace but here.— Washington Post Reader Dear Reader: No matter where you'd druther be, you are in Virginia and so are lots of other people who tell me they love it. For your own peace of mind, I hope you will make a positive effort to adjust. It must be awful hating where you live. * * * Dear Ann: The girl I'm going to marry (she's 24, I'm 23) admitted to one serious love affair before she met me. She has gone with several guys but had only one real sweetheart. The problem: She won't tell me who it was. If we are going to have a good life together I think I am entitled to know all about her past - and I mean all. It's hell when I run into one of her former flames and I keep wondering, "Is he the guy?" I've told her all about my past and held nothing back - including names and places. Is she playing fair? — Clean Slate Wanted. Dear Big Mouth: Just because you came up with the names and numbers of all the players doesn't mean your fiancee should do the same.She has confessed there was someone before you, now quit nagging for details. It ain't gentlemanly. Confidential to Throw Me a Lifeline, Annie: Paste these, words in your hatband and glue them on your mirror: "You cannot prevent birds of sorrow from flying overhead but you don't have to let them build nests in your hair."
