Talk It Over When He's Sober DEAR ANN LANDERS: For years my husband and I drank mote than most people. We drank at home, at work, and socially — at every opportunity'— to celebrate when things were good, and to "drown our sorrows" when things were bad. ble sleeping. — Garden City Woes By We've had plenty of grief which can be attributed directly to excessive drinking. My husband and I were both loaded the night we had a nasty accident. We were very nearly killed — and we came close to killing three other people. After that accident we agreed! — "no more booze." I have kept my pledge but my husband has not kept his. ; Several ttmes lately I've been sure that Jim has been drinking at work. He tries to hide it with cough drops and mouthwash but I can tell by his eyes and the way he speaks and acts. Liquor makes him noisy and rough. The effect on me because of what he is doing is shock, disgust and depression. I'm beginning to wonder if I can stay married to this man. Somehow I can't bring myself to speak to him about it. I'm afraid I might say the wrong thing. Please help me soon. I'm having trou- DEAR G.C.W.: You must speak to him. But pick your time and place. Don't try to reason with a man who is drunk. Wait until he's sober. And don't bring up the subject when you are angry. Your approach should be low-key, compassionate and understanding. You are far better equipped to help your husband than most women who are married to boozers, because you have walked those miserable miles in his moccasins. Moreover, your ability to stay dry should give Mm hope and strength. Good luck to you both. DEAR ANN LANDERS: had entered a contest 20 years ago and worked your head off and didn't win anything. I had better luck than you, Ann. Here's my story. I heart about a contest on the radio anc decided to enter. I had to write a letter saying why I thought my mom deserved a dozen roses. Six months passed and I didn't hear anything. I was quite disappointed. A few days Later my mom and I had an argument. She was awfully mad at me. When I came home from school she was all smiles — and there was a bouquet of red roses on the piano. The radio station had read my letter on the air and all the neighbors and relatives heard it. Dad got Something is bothering me, and maybe your column is not the place to take it up but frankly, you are like a family friend and I don't know where else to go. I just returned from the funeral of an acquaintance. She looked very natural except for one thing — her eyeglasses. A person who has passed away is in a very real sense "asleep" forever. ' People do not sleep with their glasses on, so why would a mortician be so stupid as to put glasses on a deceased a copy of my letter and took it to work. It was a great day for all of us. So don't givejup, Ann. You may hear from them yet. -Teen Reader DEAR READER: After 20 years I think it's safe to assume that I was not a winner. Especially since the first prize was a Hudson sedan and they don't even make 'em anymore. Thanks for writing. person? Please paper. Maybe reply in someone the will learn_from it. — M.E.G., Stockton DEAR STOCK: This decision is not made by the mortician. The family decides.

I had the same problem and finally solved it. Here's how: Tell him to sleep on his back or on his right side. People who sleep on the same side night after night rub off the whiskers on the side that'hits-the pillow. Also, if he will apply some vaseline to his sideburns it will promote the growth of hair and protect the whiskers from friction that wears them away. There is no charge for this advice, Ann, I'm glad to be of help. — Bald Spot Today, Hair Tomorrow DEAR SPOT: Thanks for the hair-raising story. My expert on sideburns says sleeping on the same side of the head night after night will not stunt tbe growth of sideburns, but if it worked for you — who am I to knock it? {Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems.
