THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, Oclolx* 24, 19G1 Ann Landers Who Picked These Idiots? Dear Ann Landers: I'm writing j the child to start a little late than alxnil your spunky answer to the woman whose sister-in-law wanted to move the TV set into the dining room. You said meal time should be family time and that it lakes ingenuity and imagination to keep a good conversation go- in rj. You closed with "It's no challenge to sit glued to the idiot box and watch anything that moves.' 1 I'd like to inform you, Ann Landers, that after 12 years of marriage and ten years of television I'd much ••athcr look at he idiot box :han listen to that idiot who calls herself a ANN wife. And I'll wager this is why 90 per cent of the men I know watch so darned much TV. — LATE LATE SHOW Dear Late Late: I'd like to pose a single question to you, and to the 90 per cent to whom you so blithely refer: Who picked these idiots? Dear Readers: Some educators, and even a larger number of mothers, have written to say I was wrong when I told a woman she should not be upset because her child missed getting into the kindergarten class by a few weeks. I told her it is better for PRINTED PATTERN 4632 a little early. I am sticking to my original position. Those who wrote to complain gave examples of exceptionally bright children who became bored because the educational fare offered no challenge. I repeat: My advice is for the average child. If a parent believes his youngster is exceptional, he should have the child's I.Q. tested. Such tests can at the very least provide useful clues and school authorities are usually delighted to make special arrangements for the gifted child. A research study by the Illinois Association for Childhood Education compared fifth graders and found that late starters generally did far better regardless of mental abilities. Specialists who deal with problem children agree that the bright youngster who is placed with older (but duller children) often develops emotional problems. Dear Ann Landers: I have invited my husband's boss and his wife to dinner at our home next month. We've had dinner at their home twice and of course they have the best of everything. We are just a young couple starting out and our dishes and linen and silver are average. I'm a good cook, however, and I know I can prepare a tasty meal. The problem is that my husband wants me to borrow silver and dishes, and even knick-knacks and pictures from my mother. She has beautiful things and he is eager to impress the boss. I say this is wrong. He says many people do it. What is your opinion?—Q.T. Dear Q.T.: I'm sure many people do it. They are called phonies. It's permissible to borrow when you don't have enough silvev or dishes to serve all the guests, but borrowing to create the illusion of wealth is fakery. Tell your foolish husband that the boss knows how much he's making. The way to "impress" him is to turn in a sterling performance on the job.

(Photo by Lucille Perkins) Richmond Women Plan Meal "Little Boy" Look Looks Unboylike By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK (AP)-Tailor the figure of the female in men's wear fabrics, or hide it altogether in yards of rippling ruffles and she looks all-woman in either case. Bill Blass, designer for Maurice Rentner, went to both extremes with his "little boy" and "little girl" looks and won buyers' applause for each. He previewed them today during the spring market shows now in progress. What is the "little boy look" made of? High-waisted, wide-shouldered, lapeled skirts and coats combined with sleeveless blouses or dresses, all made of men'swear serges and check. That's what Blass' unboylike models wore under their straw bowler hats. What is the "little girl look" made of? Minutes later the previously crisply tailored mannequins were back again ruffled from chin to shin, stem to stem, horizontally or vertically and sometimes diagonally. On some gowns where ruffles By LUCILLE PERKINS Members of the Richmond Methodist Community Church are busily preparing for the Lord's Acre Supper to be held Thursday evening, Oct. 26, at the church annex.
