}• IUDAY. NOVEMBER 27, 1970 HELEN HELP US! by Helen Bottel—— The Topic That Won't Die Dear Helen: Why do so many women on TV talk shows or in magazine articles still take such pleasure in downing their own sex? . It's as if they feel they're improving their own image by identifying with men. Don't they realize that their Jolly little remarks such as "I don't really like women," or "I don't^llke women in groups," or "I'd much rather be with men, Pm a man's woman," show not only contempt for their own sex but contempt for themselves? As a woman who very much enjoys being with other w<f- men, singly or in groups (and I'm not strange—Pm a happily married mother) I can only feel that females who find other females dull and uninteresting must be the same, unless there is a man around to spark interest To me, this is the real meaning of liberation: A liberation from the idea that the male ego must be constantly bolstered, even at the expense of your own sex and yourself; from the idea that a woman is only half a person without a man and family, whereas a man is encouraged and expected to be whole, independent and productive, with or without women. . .except, of course, physically. Liberation means to me that both parties are complete persons before and after marriage. Let's get away from this "who's going to hold the door open or buy dinner" bit, and back to the most important issue — which is improving woman's image of herself. --L.B. Dear L: Right onl' -H. Dear Helen: My sister-in-law delights in tearing people apart. Each time she sees our two teen-agers she points out all their defects. "You're breaking out again — no wonder, look at the junk you eat." "Your teeth are getting crookeder." She considers all young people hoods or dopes and says so, constantly. You might say "avoid her," but that isn't easy when we all live on the same property. Several brothers and sisters share a piece of inherited land, and we have a housetrailer on it. This woman tries to boss, us all, as if we were hired help instead of joint owners who share the taxes and upkeep. Pve never talked back to her, even though she has told my husband (ber brother) that Pm not the right wife for him. She forgets she introduced us. Now she's after our children because they don't visit her more. Why should they when all they get is criticism? She says they're anti-social, and points out' how other kids their age are out dancing, etc. They aren't town-painters, but they seem happy — and, if they're a little shy, perhaps it's because of their aunt's downgrading! How would you face this situation, Helen? —Mrs. M. Dear Mrs. M: . . .With a property-sale and a move to a happier environment. This family commune is not for you; the sooner you leave, the better! —H. Dear Helen: Wasn't it you who wondered how to bake layer cakes high and flat, so they'd stack without breaking apart? WeU my bakery man gave me the secret: Wet a strip of terry cloth or old toweling, wrap it around the side of the pan, pin it in place and bake. The moisture keeps the edges of the cake from baking faster than the inside, thus the cake rises as high on the sides as it does in the middle. And no, the cloth doesn't burn—though it browns a bit. —SACTO COOK Dear Cook: My Thanksgiving cake will be more manageable, thanks to you! —H. • This column is dedicated to family living, so if you're having kid trouble or just plain trouble, let Helen help YOU. She will also welcome your own amusing experiences. Address Helen Bottel in care of THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE.

Be strong and of- good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou go- est. Joshua 1:9 What we are, is the most important thing. . But we can't set ourselves up in our own image as one that is independent and all-sufficient for all occasions. But because of God's presence. God's powers and God's promises, we are encouraged to be strong, to be courageous, and to be unafraid and undismayed. Faith in God is the basis of Christian living. Without it we attempt to raise ourselves by our own bootstraps.

It is our responsibility to maintain a certain state of being. Wc can and we must believe. It is a sin to doubt God. It is one's duty to set about it to use all of one's strength and to be courageous, fearless and unfrustrated in obeying God's command. Have the faith to obey God wholeheartedly.
