The boy's mother was not only mad at the neighbor but furious wilh her hu.sband. When she told him what his son was doing he replied, "It's better than fooling around with a dumb ir>-ycar-old. The boy goes away to college soon. He needs some experience.'' In my opinion the father was right on both counts. Forty-five years ago, when I was 16, I had a similar ex])eri- cnce. A 34-year-old widow who lived downstairs in my mother's apartment house offered to help me with my homework. After jmy third vi.sit she seduced me. My mother found out about it, went to the woman, thanked her and lowered her rent $10 a ! month. By Ann Landers If all mothers were as as mine we wouldn't have so many kids in trouble today. Why don't you si)eai-liead a drive for belter sex education via the ExiJerienced-Older- Woman-Tulor System? It would be a public service, not only for the young boys who would profit from the expoiience. but for the young girls who should be left alone. It would also benefit the older women who are divorced, widowed or married to men who are incapacitated, lazy or busy. — G.T.A. DEAR G.T.A,: Sorry, hut I'm too busy right now to spearhead anything. Furthermore, I can think of a few people offliand who niigiit not go along on the "public service aspect" of your plan. DPJAR ANN LANDERS: You once wrote in your column, Before You Buy Check Operation of Appliances To Pare Monthly Utility Bi In an effort to trim running ex|>endi- tin-es and hold to already strained budgets, many families are writing to ine about the cost of operating various electrical appliances and lighting fixtures. So, 1 have been checking wilh a variety of experts, among them the Edi-son Electric Institute, the Electrical Testing Ljiboi-atories, and electric power companies, .such as t h e Philadelphia Electric Company. By Margaret Dana One question frequently asked is whjth- er it really pays to turn off light ^s wiien- ever leaving a room. It appears that many people believe it costs more U) turn on lights frequently than to leave them burning. All the power exports tell mc this is a myth. There is no extra "(nower surge" when a light is switched on. You will save power and money by turning off lights you are not using. Tlie false belief may have had its origin In the fact that motors in appliiiiices, such as a wa.sher, do expcriciu-c an extra "push" when the .•ippluuicc is turned on. and this docs certainly create more wear and tear on the motor. Rome figures worked out by one iwwcr company, which can bf; translated for n;;;; in any area, show that an electric range used by a family of fcur will average !17 kilovvatt-hours a montti, and at throe cents \>o.r kilowatt-hour the of that range will cost the family $2.91 a month. Rales vary, of course, but it is simple to figure what tlie kilowatt-hour rate is in your area by dividing your total electric bill by the number of "Units of Use-Electric KWll." You may be paying less than llu-ec cents in your city or rural area. However, using the three-cent figure as a base for figuring, in the average foui'- member family a refrigerat-or uses only 5fi KWHs a month, cosiing $1.68. The cost rises for a combination refrigerator-freezer, which uses W KWHs — $2!.70 a month. The frost-free'type of refrigerator make.s quite a jump, using, 138; KWHs and cosU ing $4.14 a month. A freezer, of a size for a family of four, uses only a little more than that — IMi KWHs at a cost of $4.21). Range of Sizes The range of sizes for freezers, however, gives this figure a lot of variation. Sizes go from 3.2 cubic feet to 30.1 cubic feet. And except for who raise and freeze much of their own food and need a large freezer, consimicrs must recognize that a freezer larger than tiie t.yjic contained in refrigerator-freezer combinations is one of convenience and not a money saver. If, however, you can the unit to its full capacity and keep tlie turnover of foods fairly raiiid, you can make it serve your budget. Now, what alxjut small appliances? If a family of four operates an electric toaster once a day, it will probably use three KWHs a month at a cost of nine cents. A coffee maker iKscd twice a day takes eight KWlls — 24 cents a month. An electric toothbnisli less than that —around seven KWHs. On the other hand, a dehumidificr probably will a b o u t ITiO KWHs a month, de|x."tKiing on its size and the job it must do. As for washers and dryers, a washer, if used around 12 hours a month, Avill only ahoul nine KWHs — a bargain at a monthly cost of 27 cents. Tlie dryer will take more, as yim w)uld expect. For IG hours of use a month it will draw 80 KWUs and cost $2.40. An electric iron, however, if used Uie same 16 hours a month, will use only 13 KWHs. A dlshwa.slier (wilh lieater unit) will probably use around 30 KWHs of current —another bargain for 90 cents a month. Room air conditioners juanp way up the list of current ii.sei-s, depending on size, weather, and temperature setting of its controls. The average unit uses 300 KWlls a month, and $i) is the cost. To make sure yoM get your money's worth in this im- porlant invest;nuMit, and avoid a current waster, be .sui'e wlui'i buying a [•ooni air rondilloner to check the Room Air-Conditioner Certification Directory that (ivory dealer .should have on hand. The association of Home Apiiliance Manufacturers handles this certification and units iiui .st meet high .standards lor doing what is claimed for them. There are many oilier figures, \m — such as a TV set's cost of operation. A black and white set, for instance, u.sed f<nir hours a day, luses 87 rents worth of power a month, whereas a color s(M's of o|Kiration would be $1.14. A vacuum cleaner u.sed one hour a week costs 12 cents a month. Lighting a six-room house, especially in winter with its short days, will Uike alwut 60 KWHs. So, by checking your use of all these units afid pjuing down where you can get along wilh less, you can cut that monthly bill noticeably.

"Everybody can learn from somebody." It is with this in mind tliat I write to you. I have been a cleaning woman for 22 years and I have learned, something that many well educated college trained people don't know. I have discovered a 100 per cent foolproof way to tell if people have money. Look in their broom closets. Rich people have beat-up, worn-out vacuum sweepers, so ancient that parts are no longer available. Their floor mops shed all ovei' because tlicy are worn to .shreds. Their waxers don't work a n d their wiping cloths and S |x>iiges are full of holes. Rich i)eople think they are .saving money by hanging onto cniminy appliances and worn- out junk. They are wrong. A cleaning woman can get the place twice as tidy in half the time if she li a s modern, functional equipment. When will those dumbbells with the .six-figure bank accounts and the 1931 junk wake up — Tired of Working With Relics DEAR TIRED: Hopefully when they read this. Are you awake out there, ladies? Check your broom closets and if you need new equipment, get it. DEAR A-\N LANDERS: In one of the doctor a)Iimins in the paper I read that it is not possible for a doctor to tell on examination whether a woman has had a baby. Several months ago you .said the opjwsite. Your answer was given as one of the reasons a girl should not try to co\'er up the fact that she has h a d fui out-of-wedlock child when she marries. How about a little more research? Either you are wrong or the doctor is. Who is it? — San Fran Nit-Picker DEAR S .F.: I'm ri.ght. I triple-checked with three 0. B.-Gyn specialists and they lei! me that in 99 cases out of 100. the physician can determine whether or not a woman has had a child. If she had a Caesarean section the scar is evident. If the birth was by natural delivery the cervical opening is larger and sometimes fissured. (Ann Landers will be glad to help you with vour problems.
