Beauty Tips Many women whose features aren't considered beautiful develop .an atmosphere that makes them attractive.

These actions break down the overall picture of good grooming. 'Guy and His Chick 9 Want No Advice, Just Information DfcAR AfW s 1 would be greatly indebted to you if you'd tell me as soon as possible: (1). What states will allow a 15-year-old girl tc get mar- (2) Is there any truth in the saying that if a guy and his chick are together for 24 hours after they are married the law can't rto anything to thfm? (3). Is there any way I can marry this girl and not have to _ worry about her Lander*, old lady annulling it? I just turned 19. No advice, please, Ann; just the information. We know what we are doing. R.J.N. Dear R.J.N.: Vou write me a letter like this then say "no advice, please." This is like walking under a detonated nuclear bomb and saying "no lease." I'm happy to report that in your state (Illinois) neither you nor your girl friend are old enough to be married without parental consent. From "ne sound of your letter you do not have approval from the girl's parents. I hope this serves as a deterrent (look it up). The "saying" that the law can't do anything if a guy and his chick are together for 24 hours is a lot of eyewash. You may THINK you know what you are doing, but you're mistaken at the top of your voice. » * * •» DEAR ANN: I'm writing about a young woman who rooms at my house. She'e 24, a college student in the morning, a secretary in the afternoon, and a man-chaser at night. Three months ago she started her little scheme to overwhelm a young man with her mature charms. I wouldn't, care except this boy is only 18 years old. She calls him on the phone regularly and it burns me up to listen to her vamp this young kid. I'm the mother of grown children myself and I know how I'd feel if my son at 18 had fallen into the clutches of such an unscrupulous girl. . I've thought of calling this boy's parents but I'm afraid they'd think I was just a nosy old woman. What should I do about this? MOTHER HEN. There's not much you can do to save an 18-year-old boy from the clutches of a 24-year-old woman—especially, if he doesn't want to be saved. The direction in which^he's going was determined several her about who lives under your roof. Tell her to move. * » * * DEAR ANN: I'm a young mother with a new baby and a big problem. We've been married almost seven years an'd our child is six months old. My husband has built up a terrible resentment against the child, He refuses to touch her or do anything for her the way some fathers do. The husbands of my friends seem to enjoy taking their children out in their carriage. They give them their bottles and even help with the baby laundry. But my husband gets furious when I suggest that he hold our little girl for a few minutes so he can become used to her. He wanted this baby as much as I did. Now he seems to hate her. What can I do? E.J. Your husband's unnatural attitude toward his child is a symptom of. his sickness. He needs professional help. Ask your doctor* to speak to him, He's as miserable as you are, but he doesn't know what to do about it. A youngster who grows up completely rejected by one parent can develop a dangerously lopsided personality. Let's hope your husband gets himself straightened around for the sake of everyone in the family. * * * * To learn the booby-traps of teenage drinking, write for ANN LANDERS' new boowlet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be gled to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care ol this newspaper and enclose a stamped' self-addressed envelope.) Mind Your Manners If you aren't sure you understood his name when you are introduced to another person, stop and ask to have it repeated. If you just think you'll find out later you may not have an opportunity. And, besides, having a name repeated helps to lodge it in your memory. No matter what your position IK in an organization, try to get along amiably with the other officers. No organization can accomplish much if there is criticism and back-biting among those who are supposed to be its leaders. Miss GeMer Is Bride of Junior Self Miss Doris Mae daughter of Mrs. Robert A.
