' THE OTTAWA HERALD ' Tuesday. October 17, 1.61 Ann Landers You Either Like It Or You Don't Dear Ann Landers: The letter from that obstinate mother who insisted on naming her son Junior over the violent protest of her husband (also a Junior) prompts Ihis letter. You may recall the husband hated the tag so vehemently that he actually moved to another city. He said it was the only way he could separate himself from identification with his prominent, father. I know precisely how he felt because 1 was in t h » same boat. It';1) a d enough in the younger years but aftei a guy gets into 1) u s i ness it's murder. Why give a boy a name if people are going ANN to call him something else? This goes for Sonny, Buddy, Skipper, Sandy, Buzzie and what have you. If parents like these dizzy names so well why don't they christen their sons that way?—JUNIOR Dear Junior: As I told the obstinate mother — no woman should insist on a name if her husband doesn't want it. Some men like being Junior and want to pass along the "privilege." It usually depends on how Junior feels about Senior. Dear Ann Landers: Our son is 14. I always like to know where Billy is going and what time to expect him home. After dinner last night he put on his jacket and said "So long!" I asked where he was headed and when he'd be back. His father cut in to say, "Leave the kid alone. He's not a baby and you don't need to watch him like a hawk." I didn't want to start anything in front of the boy so I remained silent. At 12:15 I heard Billy's key in ihe door. My husband warned me not to ask him any questions. I'm worried and upset. I want to do what is best. Please help me.-SPRINGFIELD MOTHER Bear Springfield Mother: Parents not only have the right but they have the obligation to know where their children are going and furthermore they should tell them what time to be home".* 5 If your husband thinks freedom to roam around until all hours will make a man out of his son, I have a flash for him — it could make a bum or a criminal out of him first. Urge your husband to talk this over with his clergyman or the high school principal — or better, perhaps, with the chief of police. He'll get an earful. Dear Ann Landers: I am married to a 06-year-old juvenile delinquent. He has left home 11 times in the last two years. Whenever he loses his temper he says "I'm leaving this lunatic asylum." I say, "Fine, I'll help j you pack." Then I do. He's usual! ly back in two days. j The problem is this: since he | has retired he's more cantanker- j ous than ever. I think his idle- j ness has sent him off his trolley. 1 He has gotten into fights with every member of the family, including our sons-in-law. I have orders not to let them in the house, even when he's not at home. He says the house is half Ihis and that he ought to have a | say-so about who comes over. j I say this is unreasonable. I I like people and enjoy visiting with family and friends. What can I do?-MARTHA Dear Martha: Don't isolate yourself just because your husband has the personality of a baracuda. Invite whomever you please and instruct the "juvenile delinquent" to stay in "his half" of the house if he doesn't like the guests.
