Ann Landers Police May Be Interested Dear Ann Landers: Please don't think I'm a nut. I need lelp and I don't know where to .urn without' risking trouble. Two years ago my husband disappeared. He had left me before (other women) so I wasn't too disturbed. He always came back after a few weeks. About a month later the police came to my tome with a wallet they found on a man whose mangled body was picked up near the railroad :racks. The wallet belonged to my husband. I had a lovely funeral for him and I went through the horrible months of grieving and torturing myself for not having been a better ANN wife. The insurance company sent their check and I moved to a nicer place. Last night I was watching sport's event on television. The camera turned on the spectators. ! could swear I saw my husband ie was with a woman and they seemed to be laughing and talking. What shall I do? I am in a state of shock as I write this letter.— NO NAME VERSATILE PATTERN — Mrs. Fred Kissinger, RFD 2, holds part of a dress r which she fitted in a pattern alteration workshop, also a dress she made with the pattern, pattern was used for three dresses, one of which she wears.

Should I come right out and ask him why the sudden disappearing act? I'd hate to make "a fool of myself.— JILTED Dear Jilted: Why let him know you feel "dropped?" Be pleasant when you see him and let him wonder why you are so sweet. This, my dear, is what is known as "The strength of indifference." Dear Ann Landers: My brother and his family needed a place to live temporarily. We rented them our lovely two bedroom home at a very low figure. They seemed grateful and said they'd pay us back someday. Well — this is how they paid us back: Last week they moved out. After 10 months the house is a shambles. My brother's daughter pounded 33 holes in her bedroom wall hanging up pictures of Fabian. The bathroom tile is cracked because their son produced a small explosion with a chemistry set. The lawn furniture is wrecked as it was left outside. Door knobs are missing and two win dows are broken. We asked them to please put lie house back in shape. They aid, "This is the owners' re- oonsibility." Why are relatives such pigs? hall we sue?—VJ Socialettes A reunion of the Charles A. Brown family was at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Sickler, Ft.

Dear No Name: It is more than likely that the man you saw on television was a striking double and not your husband at all. You should notify the police at once, however. If it was not your husband who was buried, the police would be very much interested in finding out who he was. The insurance company should be notified also. They will be eager to help in the investigation. You have nothing to fear, regardless. The error (if there was one' was not yours.
