Ann Landers This Therapist Needs Therapist Dear Ann Landers: I married a psychiatric social worker who is in private practice. I've seen him untangle emotional p r o b- lems for desperately unhappy couples. He has worked miracles for people in need of counselling, but I can't get him to help me withmy problem—him. We've been married four years and I don't know of another wife who is alone as much as I am. He is b u s y from morn- Ing until night. I'm sick of com peting with his patients for time and atten tion. When_I tell him l" need more time with him he pretends not to hear me. You would think with his knowledge .iful daughter is seriously considering throwing herself away on a fellow who is from the wrong side of the tracks. Her father and [ are beside ourselves. We brought up this girl with every advantage. She has had fine schooling, a European tour, The boy during the and lovely clothes, works in an office ANN and training he'd understand my needs; instead, he acts as if I don't exist. Please help me. — NEGLECTED Dear Neglected: Those who possess knowledge and training don't always have the ability to apply that knowledge and training to their own lives. We all know physicians who warn their patients against obesity while they themselves lug around 30 pounds of excess weight. And what woman has not gecn a beauty operator who can do wonders for a client when her own hair looks as if it had been stirred with a stick? Your husband ought to workj out his unresolved emotional problems with another therapist. Tell him the shoemaker's wife is tired of going barefoot. Dear Ann: A friend of mine has a two-year-old child who eats dirt out of potted plants, crayons, lead-pencils, paper — almost anything he can get his hands on. I raised four children and none of them behaved like this. I think there must be something wrong with the boy. Is there a chance that he is retarded? Please reply in the paper because the child's mother is a faithful reader and I want her to see it.-A FRIEND Dear Friend: Most very young children put all sorts of things in their mouths as a means of exploring the world around them. This child, however, may have a deficiency in his diet. I hope the mother will see this column and take him to a physician.

His parents are very ordinary people and can do nothing for him. We've tried to talk some sense into her head but we can't seem to get through to her. Please tell this stupid girl that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Thank you. — GETTING NOWHERE Dear Nowhere: Your daughter isn't going with an apple — she's going with a young man. And he sounds like a pretty solid one to me. You should be pleased and proud of your daughter for selecting a fellow who is working hard to achieve something. She has a sound set of values in spite of her snobbish parents. You're welcome. (Ann Landers' new book "Since You Ask Me" is now a best seller.)

"The Navajo and the Art of Sandpainting" was the topic presented by Mrs. Bernhard Fleming at a meeting recently of the Crescent Club at the home of Mrs Ralph Lidikay. Used as a demonstration by Mrs Fleming was a sand painting entitled "The Sandpainter at Work". It had been made for Mrs. Fleming by her lifelong friend, Mrs. Harry Chester, now of Desert Hot Springs, Calif. Both Mrs. Chester and Mrs. Fleming are formerly of Ottawa, having graduated from the eighth grade of the old Washington School in 1912. Mrs. Chester is the former Dorothy Work, and Mrs. Fleming is the former Josephine Barnes. The painting utilized white desert sand tinted the colors needed. The idea stemmed from the Navajo Indian sandpainters, whose work was done upon a flat surface or ground and used in ceremonies of healing. Unlike the sandpainter of yesteryear whose work was erased by the winds before evening, the sandpainter of today can work o canvas and preserve it in perm nent form.
