Ann Landers Teach The Guy To Use His Key Dear Ann Landers: I have a problem which I've never seen in your column. Furthermore I've never heard of anyone who has had this kind of trouble. My husband insists that I leave the door to our apartment open between 5:30 and 6:00 in the evening when he is expected home for dinner. He just hates to dig around for his key. 1 should tell you that he usually carries a brief case and some books so I concede it may be a bit of a nuisance. I've offered to unlock the door ANN it down!" What do you suggest? -BROWBEATEN Dear Brow: Of course it would be more convenient if the door were open so he could walk right in. It would be even more convenient if there were no door at all. But a grown man should have sense enough to realize that if he could walk in, so could any vagrant, thief or lunatic. Tell him to grow up. A major symptom of infantile behavior is the inability to defer to others. The inconvenience of using his key is a trifle compared with what he .stands to-lose by iasist- ing that you leave the door open. 1 Dear Ann Landers: My 10-year! old daughter was behaving badlv immediately if he will only knock, j n a department store yesterday. whistle or ring, but this isn't good She was running up and down the enough!

Dear Ann Landers: A friend j who works near my place of employment rides to and from work me almost every day. times he invites a friend or two to ride along. This has been going on for almost two years. Not once has he offered to buy gas or oil for the car. I wonder if he thinks a car runs on "Thank You." I am not a petty person, nor am I in bad financial shape, but I hate to be a sap. What are your feelings on this subject? -FREE TAXI Dear Free: People who accept favors should reciprocate in some manner. Perhaps your friend feels you would be insulted if he offered to fill the tank. An occasional gift would show appreciation. In any event, "Thanks for the ride" day after day is not enough. four to six weeks," says the lithe, brunette expert on physical fitness. "With teen-agers it takes two years. Why, high school girls in Rye, N.Y., had a worse failure rate in fitness tests than the little old ladies in a retirement home.

And today it's 82 per cent failure?" a real shocker, was taken to President Eisenhower and led to formation of the President's Council for Physical Fitness. Since our youth's state of vigor seems to be steadily deteriorating, Bonnie thinks President Kennedy should step in and spell out a program in precise detail: each 11-year-old boy must chin himself three times a day, and so forth. I "We can't leave interpretation It was in 1955 Bonnie set up of how to achieve fitness to the pilot studies on fitness. Her report Ladies Night Members of the Rotary Club entertained the Rotary Anns and other guests at dinner at Westminster Presbyterian Church last night. Eighty-two persons were present. Colored pictures which he had taken in Ottawa and vicinity and in other places were shown by Dr. J. E. Wallen. Included were many views of flowers and winter scenes. Roxanne Lennard gave a humorous monologue. Guests included Dr. and Mrs. John Gutschenritter and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Dengel. RICHARDSON'S SHOES Legato Club Margaret Bowers entertained the Legato Music Club Tuesday evening at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Bowers. Club members and a guest, Carolyn Bowers, played solos. Mrs. R. L. Stevens, club sponsor, announced plans for the club year. At the close, Mrs. Bowers and Margaret served refreshments. Nine members and 12 guests were present. Pam Laury will entertain the club on Nov. 14. people who've brought us where we are," she insists. Where are we? Ninety-one per cent of our elementary schools, says Bonnie, don't have gym at all. Of the 9 per cent that do, physical exercises are done for 6>/2 minutes twice a week. "If youngsters are given an exciting program they'd like gym," she promises. "But it should be fitted to the American temperament that likes excitement, rhythm, change. Exercise should be changed every 15 seconds. Swedish gymnastics or German- type exercises that you do over and over again won't work with us." How did her interest in fitness start? "I was a discontented housewife who noticed how soft my two little girls were getting. I started exercise classes for them, and lost 15 pounds myself in the first two weeks." The classes soon embraced the neighborhood and blossomed into a fulltime career, with a fitness institute, lectures and books—the latest "How to Keep Slender and Fit After Thirty" is just published.
