A few weeks ago she took the night shift to help some woman out for a month. I started to two-time her a little. The girl I took out isn't fit to be discussed in the same breath with my sweetheart. Well, she caught me at it and broke the engagement. I know I had it coming but I can't bear the thought of losing her. Please tell me how to get her back. I'll do anything. JERKY JAKE DEAR JERKY: You sound as if you're on your knees, Boy— and that's where you belong. Your only hope is to eat large and frequent helpings of humble pie and let her know about every bite. Call her from home (your own) every night. Tell her how much you miss her. Write her letters. Let her know you're broken-hearted and that you've learned your lesson. Tell her you'll never stop trying to get her back. This girl sounds as if she's worth your best efforts. If you win her back, you're a lucky sunuvagun. Good luck. » * * * DEAR ANN: I'm a bride of three months and very disillusioned. Last night my husband asked me if he could have one night out every two weeks with the boys. They have a poker game that he used to be in on before we were married. He gave it up when we started to go together a year ago. Now he tells me he'd like, to get back in. Is this a sign that he's getting tired of me? I don't want him to think I'm petty or jealous so he has no idea that I'm broken-hearted. But it's tearing me apart to think that already he's trying to spend time away from our love nest. My mother tells me I shouldn't be a fool. She says married men should be at home with their wives and that I should just tell him nothing doing. Please, Ann. Help me. LUCILLE I'm afraid if you follow your mother's advice you'll be at home with HER before long. By all means let your husband have his night out with the boys. It will make him feel less trapped. And be a good sport about it. As time goes on he'll probably want it less and less. If you fight about this he'll fee] compelled to go out to assert his manliness. And then you'll have real trouble. * * * • DEAR ANN: The only excuse for the predicament I'm in is this: it was a lovely Spring day about five years ago, and I was lonesome and didn't use my head. After about seven or eight dates with this man it was apparent that he was an alcoholic. Whenever we.went out in public it was embarrassing because he Insisted on closing every tavern. When he came to my place I had one heck of a time getting him out. I'ye left town twice, stayed away once for almost a yean I've changed phone numbers, I've dyed my hair—but still he locates me. Is there anything 1 can do M get this man to leave me atone? I'm a mature woman with grown children and it's etnbar» rassing to have him call at «11 hours of the day and night. Please tell me what to do. WIT'S END Five years and he still Insists on hanging on the horn? Apparently you don't say NO very good. Get tough. Hang up the minute you hear his voice. If he persists, tell him you are going to notify the police—then do so. * • * * Does almost everyone have a good time but you?
