We both a little bored with all that stuff work in the same place and I end nonsense in your column about the glories of parenthood. You probably will not print .-. this letter because il slaughters the sacred cow, but I'd like you t:i know there is at least one cou- "· pie in the world who did not want children and have never regretted it. We are in our sixties and have enjoyed 40 grand years logelh- er. The notion (hat children arc .; a comfort lo parents in their «sunset years is a lot of horse feathers. We have many friends who are in financial strait-jack-! eis because of their children. My sister and her husband - were never able lo go to Europe or buy a new car because their children have been on their back all their lives. My brother's wife passed away last October and their four children have been fight- ing ever since about who should was ashamed for anyone to know we were related. Toward Ihe end ] said, "Doris, it's plain to sec you have no self-respect. You should have stayed out of sight after the seventh month for MY sake." Her reply was, "Mind your own business." We've been on bad terms ever since. Was I wrong or right? -SECOND THOUGHTS Dear Second Thoughts: Any .ramnrried, pregnant girl who works until the b i t t e r end must need the money desperalely. Your cousin was trying to told her head up and you knocked it down. Please be kind to ler from now on. She needs it.

Now you can throw this ! in the waste-basket. -- JUST US AND GLAD OF IT. Dear Just: Apparently the decision to remain childless was right -- for you. But, not everyone's kids are like your nieces and nephews. Some children arc considerate, self-supporting, self-sufficient and self-respecting -- be- cause their parents raised them j that way. ' DEAR ANN LANDERS: My cousin and I are the same age (25). Doris became involved with a married man and she soon was pregnant. She stayed on her job until two weeks before the baby was born and she 10-year-old sen. My fa(her-in- nw is a fine man ami a firm :lisciplinarian, which I feel is good, but we ore having a difference in opinion. Grandpa's idea of dinner is to sit in silence anrl eat. When the boy begins to tell about what happened at school or IYM- he did in the baseball game, Grandpa says, "Be quiet. Meal time is for eating, not talking." The child resents this IIIK! so do T. T don't want to argue with Grandpa in the boy's presence. Please tell me what to do. -- Q.T. Dear Q.T.: Tell Grandpa nil the experts agrco that dinner time should be "family lime" -and lliis mentis conversation and fharing the day's events. If Grandpa prefers to dine in silence tell him you and the boy will eat before he comes home. Then do it.

Ar-abian chieftain The Lighter Side By Dick WASHINGTON (UPI)-I suggested lhat we all rise and give a standing ovation lo the State Department's Bureau of Administration. At a time when Ihe federal paperwork jungle Some ol the incoming messages were of tna "eyes only" ·ariety-lhat is, they contained classified Information addressed the secretary ol stata and checks are received by bene- iciarics. The Rolling Fork business- nan predicted change in Mis- lissippi. "The only thing that's constant is change," he said. 'The school officials have told us we're going lo bee things lappen in Rolling Fork that ve don't like. But I don't be- ieve that shootings ami hum- ngs are (he answer." t i t "NO ONE'S a hero in my book 'or shooting a -Negro in the back .11 the middle of the night," he said. "We're going to have to Keep this situation in the hands of sensible people, not linlliods. 'My religion leaches 'thou shall not kill' and if we let I h n t kind of midnight sniper take over his situation, we're going to ? sunk." Grundfest su£ces(ed to Rota- ans that homestead exemptions be disconlinueil lo place ihc tax burden en the shoulders of new voters who might otherwise miss the significance of passing a bond isssue. "\Ve should remove homestead exemptions and make lltose people xvho want to vo!e pay Iheir full slr.irc of the taxes." he said has been growing by leaps and bounds, or at least by reams and hales, this bureau has turned in a commendable job of defoliation. During the past year, It managed to reduce by two the number of copies it makes of a certain type of message. Even Rep. John J. Rooney D-N.Y., chairman of the House appropriations subcommittee hat handles the bureau's budget, was impressed by the accomplishment. And Rooney is about as Im Tcssionable as a rooming house mattress. In order lo appreciate the bureau's (read-reversing performance to the fullest, we musl go back to Ihe subcommittee's 1064 hearings. * * * AT that time the bureau was seeking funds lo hire n dupli eating machine operator to augment the 40 operators it already employed. In justifying Ihe request, the bureau told the subcommittee that on a single d;iy it made S3,WG copies of messages com- into the State Department. Rooney was impressed by that figure, too. As he said later, "we almost 'ell out of our chairs." rked for his eyes only. « messages. much im- It turned out that the bureau had been making 10 copies of the "eyes only" Rooney wasn't so pressed by that as fm w a j puzzled. He had some trouble under- ilanding why (here had to ba 10 copies of a message that only the secretary was supposed to see. Let us now move forward to Ihe 1965 hearings. Rooney, having regained a firm position in the center of his chair, again look up the matter with John W. Coffey, and official of the bureau. "How many copies ot 'eyes only' messages do you rnaka for the secretary today?" ha inquired. Coffey replied that "we have altered the designation." They are no longer referred to as "eyes only" messages. they are called tion" messages. And since there "no Now distribu- is no distribution, the bureau only makes eight copies. "That is quite an accomplishment." Rooney commented. 1 couldn't agree more. After all you can't have n clearing in the jungle unless somebody breaks a few twigs. Answer to yesterday's puzzle.

It is aulhenic French Provencial styling, even to the corbejing of the brick next to the gutters. This design, while different, has dignity which will last. Next in the entry hall, we have Installed a new type floor which looks like the finest typo Italian marble. It's easier to maintain, though, because of Its high resistance to scratches. In the family room, please notice the ceiling light fixture. By installing better light fixtures we believe we add a great deal of charm to our homes. In the kitchen, our Preway built-ins are the only appliances in the world to carry a three year guarantee. That proves something! Another new and better product is found on our bedroom closet doors. The "Eden Roc" pattern on these doors is really exquisite. We are sure you will find your tour through our home most interesting, and comfortable, too, since it la cooled by a Heil-Quakor unit.
