Mom Thanked Her and Lowered Rent DEAR ANN LANDERS: I; my tliird visit she seduced me. was very much interested in the letter from the mother of the 18-year-old boy who was having an affair with the ,3,5-year-old'month, woman next door. The boy's mother was not only mad at the, neighbor but furious wilh hiTj husband. When she told him '•• what his son was doing he re- \ plied, "It's better than fooling around with a dumb IS-ycar-old. 'ITie 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 experience. A 34-year-oId widow who lived downstairs in my mother's apartment house offered to help me with my homework. After My mother found out about it, went to the woman, thanked her and lowered her rent $10 a If all mothers wore as wise as mine we wouldn't have so many kids in trouble today. Why don't you spearhead a drive for better .se,K education via the fCxpcrienced-Older- Woman-Tutor System? It would be a public service, not only for the young boys who would profit from the experience, 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 - G.T.A. DEAR G.T.A.: Sorry, but I'm too busy right now to spearhead anything. Furthermore. I can think of a few people offliand who might not go along on the "public service aspect" of your plan. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You once wrQlo in your column, Before You Buy Check Operation of Appliances To Pare Monthly Utility Bill Jn an effort to trim running exiiendi- tures and hold to already strained budgets, many families are writing to me about the cost of operating various electrical a|>- pliances and lighting fixtures. So, f have been checking with a variety of experts, among tliem the Edison Electric Institute, the Electrical Testing Laboratories, and electric power companies, such as t li e Philadelphia Electric Company. B y Margaret Dana One question frequently asked is whether it really pays to turn off lights whenever leaving a room, it appears that many people believe it costs more to tuni on lights frequently than to leave them burning. All the Dower experts tell me this is a myth. There is no extra "power surge" when a light is s-witched on. You will save |X)wer and money by turning off lights you are not ii.sing. The false belief may have had its origin in the fact that motors in appliances, such as a washer, do experience an extra "push" when the appliance is turned on. and this does certainly create more wear and tear on the motor. Some figure.s worked out by one pow('i' comitany. which can be translated for use in any area, show that an electric I'ange used by a family of four will average 07 kilowatt-hours a month, an<l at three cents per kilowatt-hour the of I hat range will cost Uie family $2.f/l a month. Rates vary, of course, but it is simj)le to figure what the kilowatt-hour rate is in your area by dividing your total electric bill by the number of "Units of Use-Rledric KWIl." You may be paying loss than three cents in your city or niral area. However, u.s'ing the three-cent figure as a base for figuring, in the average four- member family a refrigeratC'r uses only 56 KWHs a month, costing $1.68. The cost rises for a combination refrigerator-freezer, which uses 90 KWHs - $2.70 a month. The frost-free type of refrigerator makes quite a jump, using 138 KWlLs and •ing $4.14 a, nionth. A freezer, of a size for a family of four, u;-/;s only a little •more than that -- 14<J KWIls at a cost of $4.20. Range of Sizes TTie range of sizes for freezers, however, gives this figure a lot of variation. Sizfis go from 3.2 cubic feet to 30.1 cubic feet. And except for those who raise and J freewj much of their own food and need a large freezer, budget-wise con.sinners must recognize that a freezer larger than the lyoe contained in refrigerator-freezer combinations is one of convenience and not a money saver. If. however, you can use the imit to its full capacity and keej) the turnover of foods fairly rapid, you can make it serve your budget. Now, what about .small appliances? If a family of four o |)erates an electric ioa.ster once a day, it- will probably use thfoe KWI-Is a month at a cost of nine cents. A coffee maker used twice a day takes eigiit KWHs — 24 cents a month. An electric toothbrush less tliaii tliat —aroiuid seven KWHs. On iiic other liand, a dehumidifier probably will about L50 KWlIs a month, depending on its size and the job it must do. As for washers and di7ers, a washer, if used around 12 hours a month, will use only about nine KWIIs — a bargain at a monthly cost of 27 cents. Tlie dryer will take more, as you would expect. For 16 hours of use a month it will draw 80 KWIIs and cost $2.40. An electric iron. ho \vevcr, if used the same IR hours a month, will use only 13 KVVIls. A dishwasher (with hiniter unit) will probal )Iy use around 30 KWHs of current —another bargain lor 90 cents a month. TUxm air conditioners juimp way xip the list of current users, dejiending on size, weather, and temi>erature .setting of its controls. Tlie average unit 300 KWHs a month, and $!) is the cast. To make sure you get your money's worth in tills important investment, and avoid a current waster, be sure wlici buying a room air condilioncr to check the Room Air-Conditioner Cerlification Directory that every dealer should have on hand. 'Hie as.swua- tion of Home Ap])liance Manufacturers handles this aMiification and uniLs must meet high .standards for doing what is claimed for llicm. Tliere are many other figures, too — such as a TV set's cost of operation. A black :md while set, for iiLstance, used four hours a day, uses 87 cents worth of power a monlh, whereas a color sot's cast of operation would be $1.14. A vacuum cleaner used one hour a week costs 12 cents a month. Lighting a six-room, especially in winter with its .short days, will take about 60 KWHs. So, by checking your use of all tbesc units aiid paring down where you can gel along with loss, you can cut that monthly bill noticeably.

"Rlverybody can learn from somebody." It is with this in mind that I write to you. 1 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. Lnok in their broom clo.sets. R.ich people have beal-iip. wom-f)ut vacuum sweepers, so ancient that parts are no longer available. Their floor mops shed all over because they ai-e woin to .shreds. Their waxei's don't work a n d their wiping cloths and sponges are full of hole: Rich people think they are saving money by hanging onto crummy appliances and woiii- out junk. They are wrong. A cleaning woman can get the place twice as tidy in half the lime if she h a s modem, functional equipment. When will those dumbbells with the six-figure bank account -s and the 1031 junk wake up — Tired of Working With Relics DEAR TIRED: Hopefully when they read this. Arc you awake o ii t there, ladies? Check your broom closets and if you need new equipment, get it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: In one of the doctor columns 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 ?^aid just the opposite. Your answer was given as one of the reasons a girl .should not try to cover up the fact that she has had an out-of-wedlock child when she marries. How about a little more re- seai -ch? Either you are wrong or the doctor is. Who is it? — San Fran Nit-Picker DEAR S.F.: I'm right, I triple-checked with three 0. B.-Gyn specialists and they tell me that in 99 eases out of 100, the physician can determine whether or not a woman has had a child. If she had a Cacsareaa section the scar is evident. If the birth was by natural delivery the cervical opening is larger and sometimes fissured. Mr. and Mrs. John Rawlings (Barbara Poole) The bride's parents are Mr. and Mrs. John Poole of Kl Do; rado.
