Ann Landers Growing Up, And Living Is Risky Dear Ann Landers: In June I was in a car accident with three other teenagers. It wasn't Fred's fault (he's my boy friend). A 72-year-old man came up on the wrong side of a hill with no lights and hit us head-on. It was a miracle that no one was seriously injured. My m o t h- sr has been very nervous since then and has refused to let me ride in a car with Fred. I'm almost 17 and Fred is 18. Mom and Dad drive us a n v place we 'want ANN to go and pick us up. Fred went along with this for quite a while but last night he said "No more chauffeuring." I'm afraid he'll stop dating me. Please help me, Ann, I'm miserable.-DOLLY Dear Dolly: Most parents worry about teenagers in cars and your mother's concern is of course intensified by the accident. But parents must realize that growing up and living involves 4952 SIZES 9-17 risks. All any of us can do is exercise a reasonable amount of caution. It is unfair to children when parental anxiety casts a shadow over their lives and hobbles them. Ask your mother to go for ride with Fred at the wheel. Perhaps when she sees that he is a careful driver she'll relax and al low you normal privileges. Dear Ann: My husband is a per feclly nice guy. He doesn't run around or have any bad habits I think I'd gladly trade a ba< habit for his one big fault. He thinks he's a great story teller. I want to- crawl unde the chair when he starts to tel his worn-out jokes. To begin with he can't remember stories ant he mixes up two or three in the telling. He forgets punch lines butchers dialects and I'm sure he offends people. He stretches out the simplest story until yoi wonder if he's trying for a fill buster record. I hate to see him make a fool of himself, and I've asked him to quit after one or two. But he says "People love it." Frankly, I think the situation is hopeless. If you can give me some advice I'd be grateful.— GRITTING TEETH Dear Gritting: Welcome to The Club. One of the noblest sororities of all is the group of wives j who sit silently — smiling, of < course — while their husbands mutilate stories. Just keep gritting your teeth, Old Girl — and see your dentist twice a year. Dear Ann Landers: When 1 ] svas a small child my mother; raised a beautiful flower called "the nicotine plant." It grew like | a petunia but blossomed only at j dusk and it had a lovely frag- • ranee which scented the evening air. I have searched for man y years for this plant, but without success. I know your column is not a garden corner, but you do deal with all sorts of problems, and it seems people happy ly appreciate it if you could help me locate this plant. Or perhaps one of your readers will know it by another name. Thank you,— HARRIETT with Mrs. Lloyd Griffith, attended.
