By RUTH MILLETT What kind of friend are you? Are you the kind of friend who is all sympathy when others are in trouble, but who hates to see them prosper and get ahead? The kind who sticks when the going is good, but is too busy to be bothered when a friend can no longer do him any good? Are you the kind who takes—but rarely gives? Who counts every favor done and every favor received—keeping a mental balance sheet of what he does for others and what they do for him? , Who resents a friend's being well liked by others or thinking as much of others as of him? Who prides himself on being frank—which means being frank to point out the unpleasant truth, to see the fly in the ointment, to make the unhappy reminder? . , Who takes old friends for granted and makes less effort for them than for the newest acquaintance? Who agrees with a person to his face, and criticizes him behind his back? . , Who wants to have everything his own way, and everything done at his convenience? Who can be silent while a friend is being criticized or gossiped about? Or, are you the kind of friend you expect your friends to be to you? . . . Are you sure? Spare Child Condemnation Of Father Who Has Strayed By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE • In a recent column I suggested that the wife of an unfaithful husband refrain from asking their children to share her resentment of him. In response to it, a Mrs. N. writes, "It's .people like you who are wrecking this country. My husband is living with another woman. Do I tell my children that he is good so that they can grow up to commit adultery too? A man who -breaks his marriage vows is a sinner. A person like you who's afraid to 'call badness bad is responsible for our crime and delinquency Ann Landers Wed in Desperation, She's Lived Lifetime in 24 Years Just hold on a minute, Mrs. N. Telling your child that his father is bad is not quite the same as condemning the criminal whose sin is reported in your newspaper, Your child is not related to the criminal. The criminal hasn't carried him to the bathroom every .night at 10 p.m. The criminal hasn't shown him how to operate, his Christmas toys. Tbe criminal hasn't picked him up when he fell down or read him the story of Little Black Sambo. So when you denounce the criminal as bad, your child has no memories of the criminal's goodness to come into conflict with your condemnation. But when you tell him that his father is bad, memories of his father's goodness come into very painful conflict with your indictment. That is why we spare his father the kind of condemnation we may wish to make of other sinners. We refrain from it, not in fear of calling our husband's badness bad, but in mercy to the child who has experienced him as good. In mercy we give the child the time he needs to digest his new, shocking experience of his father's weakness—and come to his own moral judgment of it. Sometimes we just can't give him the time. Our pain is so great that we can't bear it alone, and we are driven to ask the child yvho lives with us to share it. It is very easy to tell ourselves that this demand tor his support is training in righteous judgment between good and evil. But this self-delusion is also destructive, It is what blinds us to our right to real support from some understanding adult who can help us get rid of our intolerable burden. - Homemaking Hints No matter how protected gar* menu may be from dust and dirt, you can't overlook the threat of sunlight.

DEAR ANN: I'm only 24 years old and have lived a lifetime. My folks were separated and there was never enough to eat In the house. I was barefoot and in rags most of the time. I had to quit school because I didn't have clothes to cover me properly. When I 'was 15 I ran away with a man 27. He never treated me right. He drank a lot, cursed me and beat me for no reason. When J was 16 I had a baby boy. Two years later I had a girl. We still aren't married. Whenever I bring Ann Landers, it up he says, <'What for—things are all right the way they are." Last year I went to work. I met^a wonderful man. He's the only person I've ever known who has made me feel like a human being. He wants to marry me. The father of my children claims he can walk out any time he feels like it. He says there's '.'no paper holding him". But he claims I have to stay with him on account'of the kids and if I try to leave he can m,ake plenty of trouble for me. I'm not educated and I wonder if this is true. Please help me. JULIA. This is not true. There's "no paper holding you .either". If he can make any more trouble for you than he already has, I can't Imagine what it could be. Consider yourself fortunate to have met a decent man who wants to marry you. Grab him. And if your "husband" bothers you, threaten to put him under a peace bond. You can make plenty of trouble for HIM. • • * * * » DEAR ANN: I aim a most 13 years of age. My mother is very cruel to me. My sister is planning a sweet sixteen boy- girl party next month and I've been told I can say hello to the guests and men I have to go to my grandmother's house (she lives next door) to spend the night. I'm very grown up for my age and I think my sister is afraid I might get some attention away from the older girls. I can act just as grown up as her corny girl friends and she knows it. Is it right that I should be kicked out of my own home just because there will be a party going on? Please give my mother and sister some advice. They need it. LIZ DEAR LIZ: An "almost 13- year-old" is still 12 ... and she doesn't belong at her sister's sweet sixteen boy-girl party. Say hello to the guests then go next door like a little lady and make some fudge or read a good book. You'll be 16 before you know it and by that time your sister will be an old hag of 20 and you'll be able to tell HER to go next door when you have your party. Say hello to the guests then go next door when you have your party. * * * • DEAR ANN: I'm a woman 42 years of age and I'm ashamed that I don't know the answer to this one. Can you help? I'm unmarried but I've been keeping company with the head of the accounting department where I've been employed for s«vera> yean. We have known each other for quite awhile but he started to take me place* only four months ago. Last week we went together to the hospital to visit his sister. On the way home hU oar broke down. He haUed a taxi cab for me and pressed a five dollar bill in my hand. I objected, but he Insisted that I take it, The tar* waj only 12.60 §nd I g»ve tbf driver a 40c tip. The next day at the office I tried to give him the $2 but he refused to take it. He said I embarrassed him to suggest that he accept the change. Frankly, I feel funny about keeping it. Am I wrong? Did I pull'a social error? Please advise. MYRTLE. You were correct to make an attempt to return. the change. There's no reason why you should make a profit on the taxi ride. Since he feels uncomfortable about accepting the $2 simply buy him. a small gift (and you might even add 51 or so to it). This would be a gracious way of thanking him for being considerate.

Experiment to Find Beauty Products That are Proper v By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor About the only way to find beauty preparations that will do the most for you is to experiment. It's a rare thing when one whole line of products proves to be just what you need. You may use this face powder 'made by. one beauty house, rouge by another, lipstick by a third and so on. But don't judge any product either by packaging or-price. If you're concerned about the way your dressing table looks, buy some pretty and permanent jars and boxes in crystal and keep them filled. Bear in mind that it's your face that you want to look pretty first, your dressing table second. And price is no guarantee that a product will work miracles for you. This is a land of absolutely first-rate beauty products for which you can pay as little or as much as you like. The most expensive is not necessarily the best, » Shop around, find the products that are right for you and add to them from time to time, as new products are developed. Accidents Kill More Children Than Diseases Are your children immune against accidents? Of course not. Yet accidents kill more children than diseases. That it a tragic fact of modern America and it's also true of rural " Illinois. Are you as a parent doing all you can to guard your children against accidents, aski "o. L. Hogsett, extension safety specialist at the University of Illinois'. ~*~~t Hogsett urges you to keep children away from farm machinery and to forbid them to play near the farm pond unless supervised. And don't forget the electric fence along with all the other hazards around the farm. Researchers have not yet come up with a vaccine to prevent accidents, but they can tell the types of hazards that threaten and suggest 1 preventive and protective measures. It's up to adults to observe the symptoms, follow the instruc- 'tions with care and see that . treatment is begun at once. It's the unguarded moments in your own and your child's life that kill. Be on the alert —always. Born to: Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Scholl, University City, Mo., third child and son, July 6.
