'Ann Landers Should Teacher Shame A Child? Ann their mothers' Dear Ann Landers: I am a first . grade teacher who disagrees with your advice to the mother whose child wet his pants in school. You were highly critical of the teacher because she shamed the youngster before the class. Your closing statement was "The principal should speak to the teacher. She needs educating - badly." It is you who needs, educating badly. A person who has never been a teacher cannot possibly be aware of t h e problems which beset us daily. Small children who are too closely tied to apron strings sometimes use the wet pants as an excuse to go home. Often they want extra at- ention and will do anything to get it. A good teacher knows each of her students and she also knows how to deal best with his particular weaknesses. In my opinion this teacher used good judgment. -EXPERIENCED Dear Experienced: Thank you for your letter. Here is another point of view: Dear Ann Landers: My heart went out to the little boy who wet his pants in school. 'Although 40 years have passed since I had a smiliar experience, I remember it vividly. It was the first grade, and I was six years old. We were watching a movie of the Johnstown flood — and suddenly I realized I was involved in a flood of my own. We were told to file out and return to the classroom. I was ashamed to leave my seat. The teacher saw me, and seemed instinctively to know. She told the others to go on ahead. She stayed behind with me. I was swiftly ushered to the teacher's rest room and was given some dry underwear kept there for "The purpose."- She asked me to return the underwear after my mother had laundered it, so it could help some other little boy who "got too excited." Her understanding heart taught me the true meaning of compassion. I shall love that teacher to my dying day.—L.R. Confidential to Rosa: Tell your father this isn't Italy. A 16-year old girl should not look like a >aboon from the knees down. lair-removal is part of good grooming. Confidential to The Cake-eater: Any similarity between your free- oading romeo and. a real gen- leman is purely coincidental. What more do you need — a juilding to fall on your head? To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for Ann Landers' booklet, How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

Hints From Heloise Cutting Board Handle Worth Weight In Silver By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: The reason that many women do not use cutting boards is that they don't have a decent handle to use in picking the board up! I went to a dime store and purchased the type of handle used to open and close a kitchen drawer. I screwed this onto the end of my cutting board. Now I find that this one handle is worth its weight in silver! I keep this" cutting board standing up among my cookie sheets. When I look underneath the cabinet, I can readily see the gleaming handle and pull it out immediately. Helois* Gals, go buy that drawer pull Mine cost a thin dime. It's a dilly! Heloise Dear Heloise: When opening dog and cat food, try opening both ends of Announce Engagement Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Merscham, Topeka, have announced the engagement of their daughter, Janet, to Richard Schnider, Osage City.

Pittsburgh Dear Heloise: We have expensive wool carpel- ing in our home. A few days ago, I spilled perfectly clear tap water on it while watering my flowers. Now, where the water was spilled, there is a large* brown stain. Why would clear water stain an expensive carpet? Mrs. Ralph Smith Dear Mrs. Smith: The particular stain you speak of has nothing to do with the quality of your carpeting. According to the technical people at the National Institute of Rug Cleaning, the cellulosic molecules found in the backing yarns will break down with age. When this backing is wet, these aged materials wick up the tufts to the surface, causing the brown stain. The Institute recommends that in such cases, all water be blotted up immediately with clean, white absorbent material, such as a bath towel or pieces of facial Family Visits Houseguests of Mr. and Mrs. Willard Bass, 737 S.

The absorbent material when placed over the area will absorb the moisture and prevent your bad ring, but the material should be weighed down for at least six hours. I use books for this. The weight of the books is most important. It also causes slow drying. Heloise Dear Heloise: My daughter and I use 'kerchiefs for decorative neck pieces, for our hair, and to decorate simple pill box hats. I have always kept these in a drawer in my vanity. (Trying to locate one of the color or pattern we desire ends up with the kerchief's not being folded correctly, and needless to say, with a very messy drawer. Now when I wash and iron these kerchiefs, I place three or four clip-type clothespins on a wire hanger and clip several of them with a clothespin. The hanger fits very nicely in the closet, makes our selection easy and avoids that messy drawer.
