Ann Landers I'll Be Glad To Answer Her ANN Dear Ann Landers: I'm a normal boy of 17 who would like to take out a girl. I'm not sweet on any special chick but there are several cute ones at school I'd like to ask for a date. The problem is my mother. She says a boy 17 (I'll be 18 in December) should not be thinking about girls, and if she catches me talking to a girl on the phone or sitting in a girl's house after school, she'll knock my block off. Mom checks on me whenever I say I'm going over to a guy's bouse. She calls up there to ask me some dumb question. When I tell her I'm going to the lib r a r y aftei school I find her sitting there "accidentally." The guys a 11 know about this and the ribbing is murder. Can you give me some help with my problem?—TAILED Dear Tailed: It's your mother who has the real problem. A boy almost 18 who wants to datr should be allowed to do so. Mothers who are too possessive some times need professional help. Show her this column and if she has any questions she'd like to ask me I'd be happy to oblige. Dear Ann Landers: Why would a man profess his undying devotion to a woman, promise her marriage "when he is financially able" and at the same time buy her terribly expensive gifts see her only on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, never introduce her to his business associates or friends, and ask her not to phone him at home because his mother is very nervous and the telephone bothers her. I worship this man and because of him I have cut myself off from all other male contacts for the last three years. These questions plague me. Can you provide answers?-BLIND LOVE Dear Blind: 1 can't provide answers, but I can hazard a guess or two. This man is very much married and his "mother" who can't stand to hear the telephone ring is really his wife. Or—he is a mama's boy and is actually afraid to let his mother know he's interested in a woman. In either case, the relationship doesn't stand the chance of i snowflake in New Orleans. Knock it off. Work Meeting Ladies Aid of the Church of the Brethren held an all-day meeting yesterdav at the church. Mrs. George Royer was hostess for the potluck dinner at noon. Work was done on comforters for relief. Mrs. Roy Gerhard conducted a business session and Mrs. Lee Spitzer gave devotions. Fourteen attended. Layette Shoiver A layette shower was given last evening for Mrs. Bob Schouten, 709 N. Poplar, for her baby daughter, Leslie Ann. Mrs. Schouten's mother, Mrs. Leslie Robinnet, sat in for her at the Schouten home. Twelve attended. The gifts were placed in a bassinet decorated with a stork. Hostesses were Mrs. Bob Brockus and Mrs. John Dryden. Fall Special Desert Flower Hand & Body LOTION Regular $2.00 Size $1.00 plus tax PHARMACY Opp. Courthouse CH 2-3024 Carl Snyder, R.Ph.
