' Letters on premarital sex DEAR ANN: I have been u»def psychiatric care for a year and it's your fault. Yon tifaifiwashed me. Year advice on premarital sex is unrealistic and harmful to young people, the lavender and lace platitudes you've been dishing out may have been 0. k. in your day but your day has passed. Sex is not. evil. Sex is .normal. Sex is fun. Sex is beautiful. This goes for sex before marriage as well as after. A few words by a priest, minister, rabbi or judge will not suddenly liberate a girl from lifelong restraints against her own normal biological drives. The notion that a sweetheart or a husband will "throw it up to the girl" later is from the Dark Ages. Husbands who love their wives and men who love thier sweethearts will love them regardless. Print this letter if you have the guts. MB. AND MRS. E. A. SPRINGOATE Married 50 years Birth announcements Mr. and Mrs. E. A.

It might help other guilt ridden females who, like me, were kooked up by your outdated advice. — SOUTHFIELD DEARS: Here's a letter from the Dark Ages. The postal service was very poor in those days. The letter arrived this morning: DEAR ANN: If I had the nerve I'd take an overdose. Here's my story: Johnny and I went together for three months. I was just plain nutty about him. He felt the same about me. I was 19 — he was 22. We were so perfect together. We laughed at the same things, enjoyed the same movies, art, music, moonlight swims, cookouts. One night Johnny said he wanted to marry me and since we were both in love it made no sense to withhold anything. He said sex was designed in heaven for people who were in love. It all sounded so right. He had a way of putting words together so they made sense. I gave myself to him that night. For the next few days he was cool and distant. I asked why. He finally told me he had always believed I was a v i r g i n. Now he had some doubts. When he asked the question outright I told him the truth. There had been someone else — when I was 17. A lifeguard at a summer resort. I was a dumb kid, dying to learn what life was all about. He was experienced and willing to teach me. I knew it was wrong from the beginning. I never even wrote to him after the vacation was over. I told Johnny in as honest a way as I could. His reaction nearly killed me. He called me a tramp — said I had misrepresented myself, acting so pure and virginal. He took back his ring. That was the last time I saw him.- A week has passed and the hurt is no better. Will I ever be able to trust a man again? i can't believe Johnny cared that much about a liefguard who meant nothing to me. I think-he was just using it as an excuse. He got what he wanted and now he'll move on and look for a new challenge. I hope • every girl whose boyfriend is trying to talk her into premarital sex will clip this letter and keep it where she can reread it. I wish I had seen a letter like it a few years ago. — TOO LATE FOR ME. DEAR T. L.: You did- — in fact you saw many letters like it, but you weren't tuned in. Now you must forget about the past and look to the future. For Lord's sake don't consider yourself "ruined" or unworthy of a first - rate guy. It's what you are today that, matters. And one thing is certain. You are wiser. How will you know when the real thing comes along? Ask Ann Landers. Send for her booklet "Love Or Sex And How To Tell The Difference." Send 35 cents in coin and a long, self -addressed, stamped envelope with your request in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph. Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, Dec. 28, 1970 B-n Blair-Misegades vows A lovelier you A picture-pretty head By MARY SUE MILLER This is for the girls of all ages who really "never can do a thing" with their hair...' If you are among their number, answer me this: Do you realize that an obedient head of hair is as much a matter of educated habit — yours — as professional attention? Ask any hairstylist. Those gifted people may do a marvelous job on your hair. But they cannot come to live with you. You have to take it from there. How? Now in this holiday season, how do you manage the set you had today on the morrow? Has your hair gone limp? Damp it with spray that plumps the strands with bodybuilding proteins. The effect is to double it ... your hair's stamina, that is. Your locks have developed a dried-out look? A whisk of hairspray with the gloss built in or a palming of pomade would save the day. Pollution has done its work — your hair looks be-grimed? Then use a spray-on shampoo. Fresh hair comes from doing. For best effects, spray and wait a bit; then brush like mad with a freshly washed (and dried) brush. Will nothing do but a reset? If Santa didn't bring you one of those instant hairsetters with the rollers pre-warmed electrically, aim for your birthday. It's a real looks- saver. The process is clinched by spraying with heat- activated conditioners before rolling. Are you with it? If not, why not? TEEN TRESSES, MODEL TYPE Is your hair a problem, Miss Teen? Then send for my leaflet, Teen Tresses, Model Type. It tells how to correct such ailments as oily hair and flaky scalp; fly-away, unmanageable, lackluster locks. Included, too, are styling tips and model grooming quickies. For your copy write to Mary Sue Miller in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph, enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 10 cents in coin.
