A THE OTTAWA HERALD * Tuesday, October 3. 1%1 Ann Landers Yentilatin' Can t Aggravatin' Dear Ann Landers: This office has been a battle - ground for three solid months. The war is about the air-conditioner. I realize summer is over, but please solve the problem now—for next year. We have a single window-unit in this office which must be adjusted manually. One girl is al- w a y s "dying from the heat." She insists on turning the unit jp as high as it will go. Yesterday she set the controls to suit herself, then she put masking tape over the knobs and ANN attached this sign: change!" Must the entire office force be subjected to colds, sore throats and sinus infections because of one oddball? The same girl has bought a fan which blows on her all summer. Doesn't this indicate that something is physically wrong with her? The boss is neutral. He says temperatures don't bother him. Is there a solution?-KANSAS CITY COMPLAINT Dear K.C. Complaint: The oddball should see a doctor — and the boss should take some positive action even though "temperatures don't bother him." An expert ought to be called in to decide the ideal temperature for your office. He should then adjust the air-conditioner (for the summer) and no one should be permitted to touch it. The girl who is always "dying from the heal" should be given the desk closest to the unit. You should be at the other end of the room. Dear Ann Landers: When my sister Judy lived at home she got whatever she wanted from Mom. Now that she is married, it's still going on — only worse. Judy has had four babies in four years. Her husband barely makes a living. My dad is far from rich and there are many things we need but can't afford, Yet Mom buys clothes for Judy's kids, carries groceries over there and sits for them every' Saturday and Thursday nightv: ,V' V ' Last week Mom and I went shopping for his winter clothes. She didn't get, anything for herself although she needs shoes and a new coal. She spent $40 on dress clothes for Judy's kids. This burned me up. What can I do?-PLAIN MAD Dear Mad: Nothing. So stop trying. Your Mom has always put Judy first and she always will. It's too bad when married children are a financial burden to parents, but some parents promote it — so keep silent. Dear Ann Landers: Last year my husband and I signed a pledge card obligating us for a substantial amount of money. In recent months our business has gone bad and we've, had to pay heavy medical and hospital bills. It's impossible to meet the pledge. Yesterday we received a let- i ter from the director of -the or ganization with a warning that the matter would be placed in the hands of an attorney if the pledge was not paid within 6( days. Are we legally obliged to pay? Please hurry the information. We are humiliated and worried. — K7,0 Dear KXO: No ethical charity sues for collection pledges, Whether or not you are legally bound depends on the language of the pledge card. If you do "DO NOT i not have a copy, get one — am see an attorney. Cooking's Fun THE BRIDE COOKS SUPPER This savory Chinese recipe is repeated by request.
