ANN: I'm 26, the mother of a 5-year-old daughter and have been separated from my husband for almost six years. When I was pregnant my husband walked out on me for no good reason. 11 my folks hadn't been such big-hearted people I would have i taken the gas- pipe. 1 am quite content with my life now. 1 have a good job and my little girl has a wondorful home. Ann l*nd«rs. Until two years ago I received no financial help from my husband. In fact, 1 didn't even know where he was The law finally caught up with him (after considerable searching) and now he gives me the support required by law. Last week, out of the blue, I got a phone call from my husband. He wants me to come back to him. He lives in a large city about 2,000 miles away. I'm only human and would like to have a normal home life. But he refuses to pay my fare out there. I'm reluctant to take off work and go. I think he should come to me. What do you say? A.V.D.G. Stay where you are and tell your husband if he wants to talk about a reconciliation he knows where to find you. A man who leaves a pregnant wife "for no good reason" then, four years later has to be reminded of his obligation by lawyers, doesn't sound like a very hot prospect for the long pull. This character has a lot of proving to do. If he wants a second chance he should be willing to come to you—with his hat in his hand. And don't be so quick to grab him unless you're convinced he's changed. * » * * DEAR ANN: I'm a girl 19 who works downtown. Maybe I ought to know the answer to this one without asking—but 1 don't. My boy friend has pulled the same gag on me about 10 times and I'm fed up. When I told my dad about this he just laughed .and said, "I think it's very funny!" On weekends we always go to the races, ball games, movies or whatever happens to be in town. He asks me for a dinner- date and we plan to eat at some nice place. Always at the last minute he smells a hot-dog joint or a chili parlor or he gets a yen for pizza. We wind up eating at some greasy spoon where the total bill is $2.00. What do you think about this? Does it sound like he's cheap- ing out on me? ' HILDY. Are you looking for a boy friend, Hildy, or a five-course meal? It sounds to me as if he'd like to take you to fancy places but he simply can't afford it. If this lad were taking YOU to chili joints and some other girl to the 1 plush restaurants, you might have cause to complain. Under the circumstances say nothing—and eat at home :f you are suffering from malnutrition. * * * • DEAR ANN: I'm in love with a girl who is a rotten driver. She always wants to borrow my car and the few times I've let her use it she's brought it back with a smashed headlight, out oi gas, run-down battery or busted radio antenna. She has a million apologies but has yet to offer to pay for any of the damage. Her own father won't let her drive the family car and I sure don't blame him. She has a license although I don't know how she got one because she's actually a menace on the street. She knows she's not a good driver but claims the only way she'll improve is by practice. This makes sense but I still hate to let her have my car. Am J wrong? JACKSON. This girl needs more than "practice"-she needs lessons. You'd be a fool to let her have your car until she proves she can handle the wheel. Tell her to enroll in a driving school and when she gets her diploma you'll ride with her and see what she has learned. Until then—the answer should be no, Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you read ANN LANDERS' new booklet, "How to Live With Your Parents,' enclosing with your request .20 cents in coin and a large, self-addressed, stamped envelope. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems, Send them to her in care ol this newspaper and enclose 4 stamped self-addressed envelope). (©. 1958, Field Enterprise*. Inc.) Beauty Tips The body has its own air-conditioning system. But it can break down if skin pores are clogged with dirt. The body cools off as internal beat escapes as perspiration evaporates into the air. Which is all a way of saying, be lavish with soap and water when the mercury •owi. MISS PBICK Engaged Announced today by Mrs. Dorothy Moore of 3408',4 East Broadway, is the engagement of her daughter, Miss Sandra Jeanne Price, to Harold Powell, son of Mrs. C. A. Powell of Kirkwood, Mo., and the late Mr. Powell. The bride-elect was graduated in 1957 from Southwestern High School in Medora. A fall wedding is being planned. Summer Hair Styles Short And Curly By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Every summer short hair styles are as inevitable as grass and green , trees. Comfort, and a fighting chance to be well- groomed in spite of the humidity, demand that tresses be short and easily manageable. This season, though, fashion, as well as the heat, is an added incentive. The chemise dress, with its shortened hemline, and the new raised waistline have made a short look to the hair practically a necessity. Long, hanging hair worn with the new styles gives a woman the look of a top-heavy mushroom. As a result of the new fash- Ions, it is predicted that women from coast to coast will soon be wearing their hair cropped to a brief three inches, or even less, over the entire head. Professional cutting, preferably razor tapering, is recommended. So hasten to your hairdresser, gals, There's no point in looking like last summer's roses. There's attractive variety in the new short cuts. You can have sleek, simply waved cap coifs, and a number of curly, tumbled and tossed styles. Two that will undoubtedly be favorites are the ripple cut and the tumbleset. In the ripple cut, the hair is shorn to a 2% inch length all over, then curled in a rippling movement, upward from the back of the neck to the forehead. The tumbleset is a more sophisticated style, with a lovely arrangement of brushed curls, soft and tousled, that fall forward onto the temples and cheeks. The new short hair styles are versatile, too, according to the stylists at Coiffures Americana. They say you can have so many different looks from just one basic short haircut that you'll be all set for sport or casual daytime wear, or an elegant, formal evening. Julianne Fream And R, K. Dillinger Choose August 17 fof"Nuptials August 17 has been selected as the date for the wedding of Miss Julianne Fream, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Fream of 214 Chaffer St., Roxana, to Royal Kent Dillinger, son of Mr. and Mrs. Royal Lentz Dillinger of Carbondale.

TIV GUI NIW Box Storage Nr AN Ywr Wtfbw Out N«W ault itonlrollMt (*!d itmyn Va to M'W in HM fry III MILTON CLEANERS US* MUtm RM4. Dt*l *MII First of Alt Combat Mildew With Ventilation Along with the forecast of "continued cloudy weather with widely scattered showers" comes this warning to the homemaker: Prevent mildew. Mrs. Ruth Galbraith, Unlveo slty of Illinois textiles and cloth- Ing specialist, says the first step in preventing mildew is to re* move the cause of dampness. If damp air causes the moisture, you can only keep the articles as dry as possible. Close doors and windows if it 13 warm and damp outside. Warm, moist air coming in condenses on the cooler surfaces of the house, particularly in the basement, and thus increases the amount of moisture. Ventilate the house ONLY when the outside air ift cooler and drier, than the inside air. As cool air warms in the house it absorbs moisture. On coot nights, freshen the air in. the entire house. If airing won't get rid of dampness, heat the house for a short time. Then open doors and windows to let out the warmed air. To speed up the process, use an electric fan. To dry the air in closets, burn a small electric light continuously. The heat can stop the mildew if the space isn't too large. But don't put the light too close to clothing. Leave closet doors and dresser drawers open occasionally to keep moisture from gathering and to stir up the air already inside. Turn an electric fan on places that can't be exposed to outdoor breezes. Use Calcium Chloride. You can also use calcium chloride. If you do, be sure to keep it out of the reach of youngsters. Place containers of this chemical in a closed storage area. When it becomes liquid, replace it with another container. If you don't act quickly enough to prevent mildew, Mrs. Galbraith says to remove the mold growth before it weakens or rots the material. Brush off the surface growth outdoors (to prevent scattering the spores in the house). Sun and air fabrics thoroughly. Treat mildew spots according to requirements of the fabric. In other words, dry clean fabrics that can't be washed or sponged with water. For materials that are washable, wash immediately with soap and water. Rinse well and dry in the sun. If the stain remains, moisten with lemon juice and salt and spread in the sun to bleach. Rinse thoroughly and dry. Use this treatment carefully on colored fabrics.
