'ape 8 (Jarclcn City Telrgrum Friday. November 25, 1977 ANN LANDERS Maybe It's Employers Fault DEAR ANN: May I say a few words to the millions of American housewives who can't seem to find or keep domestic help? As a woman who has been a housekeeper for many years, I would like to ask these chronic complainers to take a good look at themselves. Perhaps they will discover why they have problems. Too many women expect household help to work from dawn to dusk with no regard for overtime, holidays or anything else. They also forget that wages ought to keep pace with the cost of LIVE EVERY NITE GRAIN BIN "BLACK FROST" 9:00 to 1:00 living. How many women are paying household help the same wages they were getting three, four or even five years ago? And someone should tell them second-hand clothes, leftover food, and discarded furniture do not take the place of money. Does she get a vacation with pay, like other women who work in business or industry? The women who do the complaining should be honest and admit that perhaps they are largely responsible for the scarcity of domestic help. — BIRD'S EYE VIEW DEAR BIRD: I've had the same wonderful housekeeper for 22 years and according to icr, you know what you are alking about. Thanks for a letter that is sure to please some and anger many. TBCO JOHNS munchable MEAL DEAL!

Kansas Avenue Garden City, Kansas 276-7251 * * * DEAR ANN: I've decided to type this letter because I've tried to write it several times and my hands shook and the tears messed up the ink. I refer to the minister who spoke to the groom with cold feet. I wasn't the groom (I was the bride), but my feet were cold then and they are colder now. It's been ten years since I married. Next month I'll be 29 years old with three children. I remember going to a few people and telling them I was having second and third thoughts about going ahead with the wedding. My best friend said she was so thrilled to be a bridesmaid she'd die if I changed my mind. Dad lectured me on what a great guy I was gelling and how "lucky" I was. When I Iried lo give the ring back, the "nice guy" started to cry. I couldn't stand it so I went ahead with the wedding, thinking if I tried hard enough it would work and at least I wouldn't hurt anyone else. Now when I look at our wedding pictures I'm surprised I could smile. Deep down I wanted to die. Three years ago a marriage counselor said we needed help. My husband told him to go to hell. Things were a mess but I managed lo keep going. I am now 60 pounds overweight, have ulcers and can't remember a time when I wanted to live. Thanks for the shoulder, Ann. If you think this letter is worth printing, please fix it up because I'm loo upset to write it over. My real'message is that when a person has cold feet about a wedding, he should listen lo his feet and not his friends.— WISH I HAD DEAR WISH: I urge you to talk to your clergyman or a therapist. Twenty-nine is awfully young to give up on life. Please don'l jusl sil Ihere and live out your years in agony. DO SOMETHING. * * * HOW TO and how much?

I just read some statistics that sent a chill up and down my spine. It said that teenagers know considerably less about sex than most adults think they know. A national survey revealed most teenagers knew little if anything about birth control, pregnancy, or communicable diseases. I don't mind telling you I haven't been so shook up since Butterfly McQueen threw up her hands and screamed, "I don't know nothin' bout bir- thin' babies, Miss Scarlett." Now where are parents supposed to go for all their information? As I told my teenager the other day, "I'm 50 years old and I think it's time we had a talk about why I cry so much. Maybe it's meno " She clapped her hand over my mouth. "Where did you hear gutter language like that?" "The girls at the bowling alley. They said there's a reason why I cry when they pick up the garbage and why I fall apart when I find the date on my yeast has expired. What's happening to me?" "Did you read the books I left in your room?" "I couldn't understand them. Look, if this is uncomfortable for you, I could discuss it with Mayva's children."

"No, no," she said clearing her throat, "it's just that I don't know how much you know already." 'Only what you told me last year that someday soon, I would look into the mirror and my grandmother's face would look back." "That is essentially true. It has to do with getting 0-L-D." "Don't spell in front of me!" I snapped, "I'm not a child." "I'm sorry. You have to understand how difficult it is for teenagers to explain sex to their parents. We don't want lo tell you too much or too little. Did I tell you sex is a natural and beautiful thing?"
