The boy's mother was not only mad at the neighbor but furious wiih her husband. When she told him what his son was doing he replied, "It's better than fooling around with a dumb 15-year-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 experience. A 34-year-old widow who lived downstairs in my mother's apartment house offered to help me with my homework. After my third visit 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 wise as mine we wouldn't have so many kids in trouble today. Why don't you spearhead a drive for better sex education via the Experienced-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 busy. — 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 offhand who might not go along on the "public service aspect" of your plan. DEAR ANN LANDERS: You once wrQte in your column, Before You Buy Check Operation of Appliances To Pare Monthly Utility Bill In an effort to trim running expenditures and hold lo already strained budgets, many families are writing to me about the cost of operating various electrical appliances and lighting fixtures. So, I have been checking with a variety of experts, among them the Edison Electric Institute, the Electrical Testing Laboratories, and electric power companies, such as the Philadelphia Electric Company. By 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 turn on lights frequently than to leave them burning. All the power experts tell me this is a myth. There is no extra "power surge" when a light is switched on. You will save power and money by turning off lights you are not using. 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 figures worked out by one power company, which can be translated for use in any area, show that an electric range used by a family of four will average 07 kilowatt-hours a month, and at three cents per kilowatt-hour the use of that range will cost the family S2.&1 a month. Rates vary, of course, but it is simple to figure what the kilowatt-hour rate is in your area by dividing your total electric bill by the number of "Units of Use-Electric KWII." You may be paying less than three cents in your city or niral area. However, using the three-cent figure as a base for figuring, in the average four- member family a refrigerator 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 KWHs and costing $4.14/a, month. A freezer, of a size 'for''a family of four, uses only a little 'more than that — 140 KWHs at a cost of $4.20. 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 those who raise and freeze much of their own food and need a large freezer, budget-wise consumers must recognize that a freezer larger than the type contained in refrigerator-freezer combinations is one of convenience and not a money saver. It, however, you can use the unit to its full capacity and keep the turnover of foods fairly rapid, you can make it serve your budget. Now, what about 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 used twice a day takes eight KWHs — 24 cents a month. An electric toothbrush uses less than that —around seven KWHs. On the other hand, a dehumidifier probably will use about 150 KWHs a month, depending on its size and the job it must do. As for washers and dryers, a washer, if used around 12 hours a month, will use only about nine KWHs — a bargain at a monthly cost of 27 cents. The dryer will take more, as you would expect. For 16 hours of use a month it will draw 80 KWHs and cost $2.40. An electric iron, however, if used the same 16 hours a month, will use only 13 KWHs. A dishwasher (with heater unit) will probably use around 30 KWHs of current —another bargain for 90 cents a month. Room air conditioners jump way up the list of current users, depending on size, weather, and temperature setting of its controls. The average unit uses 300 KWHs a month, and $9 is the cost. To make sure you get your money's worth in this important investment, and avoid a current waster, be sure when buying a room air conditioner to check the Room Air-Conditioner Certification Directory that every dealer should have on hand. The association of Home Appliance Manufacturers handles this certification and units must meet high standards for doing what is claimed for tliem. There are many other figures, too — such as a TV set's cost of operation. A black and white set, for instance, used four hours a day, uses 87 cents worth of power a month, whereas a color set's cost of operation would be $1.14. A vacuum cleaner used one hour a week costs 12 cents a month. Lighting a six-room house, especially in winter with its short clays, will take about 60 KWHs. So, by checking your use of all these units aid paring down where you can get along with loss, you can cut that monthly bill noticeably.

"Everybody can learn from somebody." It is with this in mind that 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 over because they are worn to shreds. Their waxers don't work and their wiping cloths and sponges are full of holes. Rich people think they are saving money by hanging onto crummy appliances and worn- out junk. They are wrong. A cleaning woman can get the place twice as tidy in half the time if she h a s modem, 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 o u t (here, ladies? Cheek your broom closets and if you need new equipment, get it. DEAR ANN LANDERS: In one of the doctor columns in the paper 1 read that it is not possible for a doctor lo tell on examination whether a woman has had a baby. Several months ago you said 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 research? 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 O. B.-Gyn specialists and they tell 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 your problems. Send them to Ann Landers, care of The Hutchinson News, Box 3345, Chicago, III. 606SA, and enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope.)
