Ann Landers Don't Let Lessons Kick Cupid Aside Dear Ann Landers: We have four school-age children. The trend these days seems to be to load kids up with homework until they can't see straight. In our house the usual procedure is this: After the supper dishes are done my wife helps the girls with their homework and I supervise the boys.. These kids aren't stuipd, but they can't seem to get by without our constant guidance. We've tried cutting down on the help and the results have been disastrous. By bedtime my wife is so full of historical facts and I'm so dizzy from algebraic equa tions that any thought of romance is out of the question. So the question boils down to this: Do we deny our children? You decide. NIGHT OIL Dear Oil: If cupid is being knocked out every night by homework your kids are getting entirely too much help. One hour of supervision, five evenings a week, should be plenty. Beyond that you do your children an injustice — not to mention yourselves. dresses do they also wear hats? The bride-to-be says the groom's folks are supposed to buy flowers for the bridesmaids. The groom's mother says the bride's folks pay for everything. Please help us untangle some of these problems.—AUNTIE Dear Auntie: You need more help than I can give you in a single letter. I suggest a personal consultation with someone whose business it is to plan weddings. I can tell you, however, thai it's not necessary to invite to dinner all the guests who are invited to the wedding. And white coats in the winter are not proper — ditto hats with long dresses Any florist can tell you who pays for which flowers. Are your parents too strict?

He still shares my locker at school (we're both seniors now) and he even dates me once in a while. Well, here it is November and I'm still crazy about him. He's given up all ambition for college and every weekend he gets drunk MODERN MODEL — Car) D. Bobbish of the O.U. Music and Piano Department, will play this new model harpsichord, brought from Kansas City, at the oratorio in First Baptist Church Sunday evening. The harpsichord, used as one of the main concert instruments in the 18th century, worked by a string being plucked, sounding much like one string of a guitar. Because they were very hard to keep tuned, the modern types work with a series of transistors. The instrument gives clear tunes which can be heard above the lines of a production.
