Ann Landers Most Women Are Chief Shoppers Dear Ann Landers: I started to work in a men's clothing store recently. It opened my eyes in regard to the American male. I had no idea that about 80 per cent of the men in this country are such morons they can't buy a suit without advice from a wife, a mother, or a girl friend. They need someone to tell them what looks good, which fabrics wear, how a suit ought to fit, and how much money they can spend. If a man likes a certain suit and the female he brings in likes another one, you can bet He will end up with the i u i t she likes. Please, Ann, print this letter asaprotest ANN against men bringing women in when they buy clothing. The salesmen hate it.-HOUSTON HARRY Dear Houston: You can be sure when a man and woman come into a men's clothing store together, she brought him. A great many men would never buy suit or a coat if they had to shop alone. The woman who cares enough about her man to shop with him demonstrates genuine interest This is a compliment and no man should resent it. I phoned severa salesmen before I wrote this reply. One said, "I don't like to see a wife come in with her hus band because I know I can't sel him last year's dog." Dear Ann Landers: years ago I married Thre widow Her son is now 24 and he lives with us. Both my wife and stepson work He makes at least as much mon ey as I do. (I am a fireman. They put their checks away am I pay all the bills. The boy buy his own clothes and keeps hi car up. Last month the telephon bill was $28. The kid made sev eral long distance calls to hi girl. I told my wife I thought h should pay the bill. She said i was the responsibility of the hus and to pay all household bills. What do you think of this set- p?-B.H. Dear B.H.: Not much. When a usband and wife both work the hecks should be pooled and the xpenses shared. And a 24-year-old is no "kid" — he's a grown man. Not only hould he be paying for his own ong distance telephone calls, but e should fork over at least 25 icr cent of his pay check. Dear Ann: You may think I'm :razy to write about Christmas low but I want to be prepared n advance. Our 14-year-old daughter is fascinated with her aunt Mazie and wants to visit her during Christmas vacation. Mazie is my wife's youngest sister. She has been divorced twice and is now living with a well-to-do gambler in Detroit. They live like millionaires and I'm sure the glamor would appeal to our daughter. When Mazie was here she told our daughter that marriage is for suckers and smart girls live with men until the shine wears off, then they shove off for "greener pastures." Mazie drinks like a fish and has served time for forging checks. I'm opposed to letting our daughter make this trip but my wife feels she should see all sides of life. I need your help.-TWO TO ONE Dear Two to: No teenager should visit in the home of an unmarried couple. By sending her, you condone aunt Mazie's indecent design for living. Tell your daughter she can't visit people who have such shabby standards of morality. MR. AND MRS. GEORGE E. FERGUSON 50th Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. George E.
