Page 6 Garden City Telegram Friday, December 2, 1977 'More Determined Than Mrs. John Melcum, 1306 Pat's Drive, a pro-family voting delegate from Kansas, came away from the recent National Women's Conference in Houston, "more determined than ever" to work against ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Mrs. Melcum was elected third alternate in the Kansas conference in July. She became a voting delegate after Mrs. Pat Storey, Topeka, left the conference. "Pro-family delegates made up 20 percent of all delegates," Mrs. Melcum Mr. and Mrs. Joe Erskin of Garden City would like to announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their son Joe, to Diane Weese. Diane is the daughter of Shirley Weese, Great Bend. Diane is a Great Bend High School and Barton County Community College graduate. She currently attends Kansas State University. Joe is a Garden City High School and Community College graduate and is now employed by the Barton County sheriff's office. A Feb. 11 wedding is planned at the First Church of the Nazarene, Great Bend. Diane Weese Joe Erskin Said, "so we were vastly outnumbered." However, of the 20 Kansas delegates, 14 were pro-family and six were pro-ERA, she continued. There were 2000 delegates on the voting floor in Sam Houston Coliseum. The women heard many speakers, the most notable being Rep. Barbara Jordan, First Lady Rosalynn Carter, Betty Ford, and Ladybird Johnson. Chairing the opening session was Congresswoman Bella Abzug. Mrs. Melcum said there were 26 resolutions proposed in the National Plan of Action, but only one, the one on obtaining credit, passed unanimously. "It was the only one I voted for," she said. The credit resolution, if adopted by as law, would make it easier for married women to obtain credit. Other resolutions put to a vote included adding a women's department to the Piano Recital Sunday Garden City Piano Teachers League will host a recital Sunday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m., at Garden Valley Retirement Village Chapel.

Mrs. Melcum did not think all viewpoints were represented and called the conference a "charade." "Only 140,000 women attended the state conferences across the country. Delegates were chosen from about one- tenth of one percent of the population." "Pro-family delegates felt they did more good face to face, speaking directly to others on a one-to-one basis," she said. And, although the plan of action adopted at the conference will go to Congress within approximately six months, the pro-family backers do not think they all will be implemented, she said. Cost to implement these programs would be extremely high, she said. ERA must be ratified by three more states by March 22, 1979, or it dies. Even the strongest ERA backers think it should be ratified within the seven-year limit, Mrs. Melcum said. Pro-family supporters think the issue is a "dead" one and no more states will ratify it. "During the conference, the flame on the torch carried from New York went out. Perhaps that is a sign the ERA movement is dying down," she said. Mrs. Melcum said pro- family supporters will continue contacting representatives and senators and corresponding with others against ERA. Backers of the pro-family movement are opposed to federal government intervention in matters concerning the family unit. They believe the "home is the cornerstone of America."

Never have you printed a letter about a mother who molested her own daughter. If you've never received one here's your first. I am now 58 years old and am speaking of it for the first time. My mother was a teacher and a steady churchgoer. She did the fooling around when she bathed me. I never knew there was anything unusual about her behavior until my father walked in on us and made a terrific scene. (I was 12 years old at that time much too old to be bathed by mother.) She never touched me after that, but the damage she had done was considerable. When I married I had a hard time enjoying sex and still do. I was afraid to bathe my four daughters and had to force myself to do it. Even now I have trouble diapering my granddaughter. There must be others like me grown women who still bear the marks of early abuse and have never told a soul. What a relief it has been to write this letter. Bless You. — RENO, NEVADA DEAR RENO: Thanks for unloading. That's what I'm here for. And now I hope you'll unload verbally to a counselor. It will do you a world of good. Pent-up anger can be a buried time bomb. There's a very lovely young woman at work I would love to be friends with, but she doesn't know I'm alive. A lot of guys meet girls at singles bars, bowling alleys, sports events and through volunteer work, but my personality is so bad I think it's best if I just stay by myself. Any advice?— MIDWESTERN ODDBALL DEAR FRIEND: In answer to your first question I'd say you are a heterosexual who is painfully shy and has a very poor self-image mostly unearned. First, get a book called "Shyness What it Is What To Do About It," by Philip Zimbardo (publisher, Addison Wesley). Read it carefully. You'll notice it says, "if none of this works for you, you need professional help." Dr. Zimbardo is a superb psychologist who knows his onions or I should say plums. He teaches at Stanford. DEAR ANN: May I say something to "Driven Crazy by Gum-Snapping" If you Unique Christmas Tree Decorations Now at 116 Eitt Uiral Girta Crty think it's bad on a subway, in a bus or an elevator, try listening to it all day. I'm a telephone operator. We have orders not to be rude and "put a smile in our voices." No matter what we gel on the other end. (No wonder I have an ulcer.) Then there are- the celery chewers, the apple munchers and the potato chip crun- chers. Please Ann, do every telephone operator in the world a favor and print this letter. — GRRR—RRRR DEAR GRRR—GRRRR: You've got a soul sister in me, honey. People who crunch, munch and chew on the phone drive me crackers. Since I'm not an operator I can tell 'em to finish eating and call me back. And I do. DO YOU feel awkward, self- conscious lonely? Welcome to the Club. There's help for you in Ann Lander's booklet, "The Key to Popularity." Send 50 cents in coin with your request and a long, stamped, self- addressed envelope to Ann Landers, P.O. Box 11995, Chicago, 111. 60611. DEAR ANN: I know what heterosexuality is. I know what homosexuality is. I am also aware of the nature of bisexuality. Please tell me what category I belong to. I am 22 years of age and have never been on a date. That's not all. I have never • had a real conversation with a girl. Schrader and Marjorie Warner-.
