made great contributions to the
educational,' political and finan
cial strength of our country. As
one cxamnl", let us remember
the very great number of refugees
who came to America following
World War II. The ureal majority
of them learned their first and
in many instances only lessons in
Democracy in our fraternal lodse
halls. Thus endearing them to
the principles of American De
mocracy." Mrs. Hansen called attention to
a great example of- "Frhternnllsm

Dear Ann Landers: Last week
I put new sheets on the bed. My
husband raved over how luxur
ieus they felt, lie asked why they
weren't this way all the time. He
then added "Mom's bed sheets
wore always like this."
I explained perhaps his mother
ironed her sheets. I simply fold
mine and put them away. He
then had the nerve to suggest
that I iron the sheets from now
en. We cot into a hot argument
and I refused flatly. I don't hap

Dear Ann: Recently a man ask
ed if he could be forced by law
to marry a girl who had been "the
neighborhood sweetheart." You
said the law could not force a
marriage, but in some states the
father may have to support his
child. You then blasted HIS rep
rehensible conduct, but not a
word about HERS.
Why docs society always place
the girl on the pedestal as "Inno
cence Betrayed" while the man
gets roasted? Whenever a tramp
gets into a fix she can point a
finger at a convenient chump and
the curt will take HER word
against his. Usually she names
some stoop she went with a few
times and he can't recall much
as he was a little drunk.
Isn't it barely possible that
some scheming harpies deliber
ately get pregnant so they can
pry a settlement out of a poor
sap who can't afford a scandal?
Be fair' and print this. The Mi
sogynist. Dear Misogynist: It's obvious
you've never had . a baby, sir.
Even the "scheming harpies"
know this a tough way to "make
money." This trick is not a fav
orite of the conniving, experi
enced woman, as you suggest.
Only the very young and foolish
would be so rash.
If you are so stupid or so
naive that you don't know how
to protect yourself against this
low type, I'll TELL you how. Stay
cway from tramps and keep off
the list of candidates. Remem
ber that drunkenness is no ex
