Ann Lenders It Just Depends On What You Did Dear Ann Landers: My boy friend and I are both 18. We've been going together for several months. We used to double date with his brother and his wife a lot. Then she went into her eighth month and the doctor said she had to stay in bed. Last night was Saturday and we didn't have anything special to do. We decided to visit his brother and sister-in-law. When we phoned, M a 1- colm said h i •> wife had gone into laboi* and he was taking her to the hos pital. He asked us if we wanted to meet h i m over there. We didn't have any- ANN thing better to do so we said yes. We were at the hospital about four hours and the baby was born. When I told my mother about it the next morning she was boiling mad. She said that was no way for a young couple to spend an evening. I don't see anything wrong with it. Do you?—NINA Dear Nina: It depends on what you did at the hospital. If you sat PRINTED PATTERN with the expectant father and helped to take his mind off the long wait, then I think .it was perfectly all right. If, on the other hand, you hung around the expectant mother, this is not my idea of appropriate teenage entertainment. Dear Ann Landers: What can be done about a hostess who insists on piling more food on your plate, even after you have said in plain English "No, thank you. Also, this woman's husbanc ! watches 'the cocktail glasses ol • every guest. The minute it get ! down to half he insists on filling up again. He actually pried my ' fingers off my martini glass las' evening to get it away from me i and fill it up. I was very an ' noyed. I say this is bad manners. My I husband claims this is the mark of a gracious host and hostess because some people are bashfu and must be encouraged. What is your opinion?—CARLA Dear Carla: A gracious hos and hostess make their guest feel comfortable. This is not ac complished by pushing m o r food and drink on them than they want. The people you describe sound like clods. It's insulting to a guest to assume that you must decide for him how much food or drink he should have. Dear Ann Landers: About that letter signed Sam — from the husband who complained because his wife spent so much money and was such a lousy manager. I'm sure that letter was written by my husband. He didn't even have the decency to change his name. Well my name is Ethel and here is my side of the story. We wouldn't be broke all the time if Sam didn't write checks on our joint account and forget to tell me. He doesn't even deduct the amount from his balance. He just writes like crazy and acts like the money stays in the bank. It makes me see red when I think we're in good shape and then I get a slip saying we're overdrawn. So, what can I do with a guy like that?—ETHEL Dear Ethel: You can see that "a guy like that" has h i s separate checking account. It ! would save a lot of wear and tear on your nerves and he might behave better if he alone was responsible for the balance. Confidential to SOUNDS OF MUSIC: Stop seeing this man before you hear other sounds—like an attorney (or a wife). White Ribbon Recruit Service The "Sojourner Truth" and "Mary Black" Woman's Christian Temperance Unions held a joint institute yesterday at the First Methodist Church. Mrs. E. C. Twining was in charge of the White Ribbon Recruit service. The small children sang "Jesus Loves Me," accompanied by Mrs. Raymond Brady.

EAGLES AUXILIARY BEAUCEANT trying to fit a bulky, boxy loudspeaker into the decor of a small living room. In recent years the trend has been to smaller boxes of bookshelf size — but a shelf has limits. Now there are new thin speakers by at least two makers. One is only 5 inches deep, with plain cloth grille, suitable for table tops. ! Another line features a five- j speaker system enclosed in a \ rectangle 25 inches high and 211 inches across, but only 4 inches thick — no wider than a worn- overlay on one side — and can be hung on walls, used as a room divider or as a floor screen in front of a corner or radiator. The legs are detachable. Most important for the hi-fi buff: The sound is excellent, thanks to two woofers for bass, two mid-range units, and a super- tweeter for highs.
