Your Problems — bv Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Mother is in her 70's but very active, Site PMJO.VS visiting relatives who live nearby. 1 noticed whenever she return- rrl from a trip she brought back articles which did not belong to her. such as hosiery, underwear, liprldinfi, jewelry ami kitchen ulensils. She told me these items were gifts. After a while I thought it strange she would receive such an iissortmcnt of odds and ends — none of it new. I finally made some phone calls and learned that mother had taken the articles. Of course I returned them. Now she complains that some of our relatives whom she used to enjoy visiting do not want her anymore. They make excuses, of course not wishing to tell her the truth. I'm afraid she may start lo steal from stores and then the law would step in. If she is sick how can I hleo her? Please advise me. — SAD DAUGHTER Dear Daughter: Your Mother has an illness, called kleptomania. At her age I doubt that a doctor could help. Your best bet is to keep an eye on her whenever she returns from anywhere. Learn where she'has been, examine her clothings, parcels, etc. and return what she takes. Also, notify the stores she frequents, advise them of her problem and ask for their cooperation. •*• * + DEAR ANN LANDERS: My father was a day-laborer. I grew up in the part of town where the working people lived. I was never ashamed of my folks or the neighborhood. The .girl who lived next door had a nice hard-working father also. Her parents spoke virtually no English. I remember when this girl started school she had a difficult time. I had to translate for her because she s-noke a foreign tongue almost exclusively. Twenty years have passed and this girl and I have married. Our i husbands have done well profcs-' I sionally and we both live on; Uhe other side of town. In the past year our paths have : crossed socially. Now, as if suddenly struck by amnesia, she [doesn't understand one word of , the first language she ever learn:ed. Will you please explain this to me? — BAFFLE.D Dear Baffled: The girl with the faulty memory has deep feelings' i of insecurity about her origins. : i The foreign language reminds [her of the poverty and old-coun- 'try ways of her parents. : : These memories make her un-, Comfortable so she wishes to, j sweep them all under the nig. i The poor thing is to be pitied. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please i settle something in your column: t once and for all. 1 am a mothsr ' | who must depend on sitters when iwe want to leave the children at ' night. j Three teenagers in our block; I are available. Two of these girls! 'want permission to have com- j pany. My husband doesn't like the idea but I see nothing wrong with it. After all, when the children are in bed what difference does it make if the sitter has her boy friend over and they watch TV together? Please deal with thi s in the column and state your reasons for or against. — whichever they mav be. - N. T.K. N. T. K.: I'm against company for sitters and here are the reasons: Tile girl who sits i s working. It is as much a job as if she were in an office or a store. An employer is entitled to her undivided time and attention. I do not approve of a teenager entertaining T bay friend in her own home when no adult is present, for obvious reasons. The woman who provides the sitter with a far cozier set-up than she could get at home hands the girl a gilt-edged invitation to trouble.

I Glamour Debs Hi-Fashion Flats Widths AAAA lo B Sizes 4 to 10 $6.95 Right: Black Kid Left: Black or Otter Brown $6.95 the family oowie By VIVIAN BROWN AP Beauty Editor Ruth Mischel Susselman decided to make a powder puff just as you would a cake — in layers. Her 12-layer puff is a dream- come-true, which took her more than $ree years to develop. Says she: "It wasn't easy, but once I got the idea, I stuck with it. I worked with chemists, and we had to develop machinery to do a large enough production to make such a small item pay off. But we did it. Now the puff is on its way to Sweden, Hawaii, Canada, Cuba, South Africa, and on cosmetics counters all over America." • The puff is about one-quarter of an inch thick, and when you use it for a day or two, you just peel off a layer and th'row it away. "Some girls use it three days, some two days. It depends on your own fastidiousness," Mrs. Susselman points out. "But it is a development that has pleased dermatologists. They are always touting the clean puff for clean skin theory, so we don't have to sell them on the idea." This sanitary new powder puff is for use in compacts. Each soft layer of cotton adheres to another layer. It is gently pulled away. "Some of the problems to be solved included getting a thin enough layer of cotton so that the powder wouldn't seep through the cotton. Another was getting a leavy enough layer of cotton so that the powder would adhere to the cotton. These were delicate points to be worked out before we could oroceed," she explains. The puffet is designed to last Gamma Mu ESA Plans to Attend Church in Group Mrs. Wendell Maddox was speaker for the model meeting of the Gamma Mu chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha Monday night.

Mrs. Archie Shook reported on the zone' meeting in Ulysses, Sept. 30, which five from the chapter attended. For Epsilon Sigma Alpha Sunday this week the group will meet with Mrs. Shook and attend church together. "The Key to the Tropical Isles" is the theme of the meeting to be Oct. 20 in the Luau Inn. CLEAN PUFF every time after using, peel off layer, leaving fresh puff. one month, if one layer is used every three days. "I was always unhappy wthen going out to dinner in the evening to discover a dirty puff in my purse, and to worry about this inconvenience bothered m e," says Mrs. Susselman. "I decided one day to do something about it, and that's how the idea was .born." Her teen-age children are very understanding and considerate, and her husband is a lawyer, who takes care of patent problems, account books and ther legal advice. "Now that I've had the thrill of creating something that has been accepted, I can't wait to do something else. I have all sorts of other ideas dancing around in my head," says blonde, blue-eyed Mrs. Susselman, who used- to be a fashion coordinator. Aurora Club Meets at Pucketts Mrs. Lee Puckett, 2306 N.
