The Gray Lady program was started by the local Red Cross chapter in April, 1957, at the request of the State Welfare Board and the managements of the nursing homes. Later th program was expanded to give volunteer service at St. Catherine hospital. Gray Ladles go iato an institution only at the request of the institution, Mrs. Schulman said — and only when there is definite need for the service. A letter of appreciation to the 16 Gray Ladies came from Marvin Larson, State Director of Social Welfare, along with a gold seal certificate for each of them, issued by the Division of Services for the Aged of the Welfare department. Mrs. Guy Palmer was cited for more than 500 hours of service; Mrs. Walter Wolf and Mrs. Robert Scott, more than 400 hours: Mrs. R. L. Ball, Mrs. J. 0. Huhn, and Mrs. D. V.

Dale and Mrs. John Milne, more than 100; and Mrs. Emil Salyer, more than 50. The R*d Cross board agreed to make personal contact 1 ; of local businessmen early in December to solicit thtiir cooperation in letting employes have time off from their jobs to donate blood. The blood donor ranks have been thinning out seriously here and in many other blood- taking stations, and the board plans to take steps to improve and promote participation. First Aid chairman Amos Biondi expressed a willingness to start a series of First Aid classes in the near future if there is enough interest among local groups and individuals. Mildred Hope, executive secretary, will be in Salina part of next week to attend the state executive secretaries- conference in Salina. On Nov. 28 she will attend a regional blood meeting in Wichita. :, Lew Lyman presided at the meeting attended by 15 members of the board. The Gray Ladies were guests.

He- has been nagging his father for six months. He wants to shave. Honestly, Ann, there is nothing there to shave. He would only cut 'himself. His dad keeps telling Andy that shaving is a nuisance and after h e once starts he'll find it's no fun at all. The boy is unconvinced.- This is getting to be such an issue around the house that we have decided to write to you and let you settle it. I am sending you Andy's picture. - What do you think? — CHAOS UNLIMITED Dear Chaoss I can't tell anything from the picture but please don't send the boy. I'll take your word f9r the. fact that Andy does not have much of a beard. The experts I've consulted say "let the boy shave." It will do wonders for his morale and it won't hurt his face one bit. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Please don't print my name, initials, city or state. I can't have anyone know I wrote this letter. A few doctors in this town live like millionaires. They perform an awful lot of operations. I've often wondered if all these operations are necessary. Several months ago a friend or ours was rushed to the hospital with severe abdominal pains. The doctor removed her appendix that very night. Complications set in and the patient see-sawed between life and death for three days. She finally pulled through. What if the pains were just tension and not appendicitis? This is possible, isn't it? Who is to say whether an operation is necessary? — JUST INQUIRING Dear J.I.: The doctor is the one to say whether an operation is necessary. And every family has the right to call in consuU- ing physicians if they want more than, one opinion. Telephone BR: 6 4992 NOW OPEN!

No human is infallible, but if a doctor chalks up two or three unnecessary operations, he will be dropped from the hospital staff. *. * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wish to challenge your reply to the secretary who resented being asked to do janitor work. You said: "Show me a secretary who has never washed a desk-top or moved a fan and I'll show you a mighty poor employee." Well, I'm an executive secretary who is considered tops in my field. I have nevor washed- a desk-top or moved a fan — and furthermore I never will. Any office worthy of the name has janitors who come in after hours to do the cleaning. If the clean-up crew is incompetent, these people should be replaced by people who can-do the job. To expect a secretary to dust and wash desks i s degrading. I will work my fingers to the bone when it comes to secretarial duties but I refuse to do d janitor's work. It is obvious, Ann Landers, that you have neve.- been a secretary — SEATTLE Dear Seattle: Right you are. I have never been a j>ecretary, but I employ eight. Often I consult with experts before giving an answer. In this case I asked each of my secretaries if she would wash a desk-top or move a fan. The verdict was a unanimous yes. * * * Confidential to Need a Helping Hand: You'll find it right at the bottom of your arm, Buster. Why look further?
