THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, February 1, 1963 Landers {Md Beater •Needs Doctor Ana Dear Ann Landers: I'm so up- liet I don't know where to turn. My mother who lives 22 miles from here had a stroke. I've had to spend a lot of time relieving my older sister who is trying to care for her. When I go to mother's my husband takes care of our 17-month- o 1 d daughter. Three weeks ago when I c a m e home, I found a note saying my husband had taken the baby to the hospital She had fallen but of her high ehair. Fortunately no bones were broken. Last night I found a similar note. This time, the baby suffered a broken arm. When I went to the hospital this morning the doctor questioned me at length. It seems this is the fourth time in a year our child has been brought in. (I didn't know about the other two times.) This doctor suspects my husband has been beating the baby. Can this be possible? If it's true what can I do? Please help me — I am a nervous wreck.— EDNA ** . \Dear Edna: A University of Colorado team investigated the "battered child syndrome" recently and found 302 cases, in a single year. The parents usually deny beating the child. The high is the most chair excuse popular. A parent who would beat a youngster is deeply disturbed emotionally and the child should be protected against such brutali- 'ty. Keep your eyes wide open and if there is further evidence, by all means get this man out of your home and into treatment. Dear Ann Landers: I was shocked recently when, at a social gathering, an officer of a bank had one too many martinis and began to speak openly about the financial problem of two of his clients. ~ Last night, at another social affair, a nurse who is employed in a doctor's office revealed some highly personal information about • prominent woman who is a patient. I always thought individuals who dealt professionally with the ; public had a moral obligation to :keep their mouths shut. It seems unspeakable that they would use confidential information for social chit-chat. Is there something I, as one person, can do to com bat this sort of thing? I am— HORRIFIED Dear Horrified: Yes. You can do business with another bank and go to another doctor. And if the question is ever raised as to "why", you can explain — leaving out aH names of course. Dear Ana Landers: I am a 15• year-old girl who is crazy about horses. I belong to a riding club and we meet every week. My parents are not what you would call rich, so I really appreciate this luxury. The more I see of horses the more I yearn to have a horse of my own. I know my folks can't afford to buy me a horse, at least not for quite awilc. My grandmother is a shut-in. She was injured in an accident a long time ago and never goes anyplace. Mother says she has a large bankbook and gets a regular income from some property She never spends any money on herself, so she must be saving a lot. I want to ask her if she will buy me a horse and board it. It would mean the world to me and I think she could do it with no trouble. What do you say?— UNDECIDED Dear Undecided: I say take your big eyes off ycur grandmother's bankbook. You don't ask people to buy you a gift, regardless of how much money they have. And it may well be that your grandmother needs every bit of what she has to care for herself in her remaining years. Dear Ann Landers: I am a high school senior who is going steady with a terrific girl. The only trouble is I'm never quite sure of what she is doing behind my back. Lizette has my class ring and we are almsot semi-engaged. The other evening we were at a party and she suddenly disappeared for about an hour. When I found her sitting in a boy's car in front of the house, I was pret ty burned up. We had a big fight but kissed and made up and she promised to be faithful. Yesterday a buddy told me she gave this creep her phone number. It figured because her line has been busy for two nights straight. When I asked Lizette about it she said it was the only way she could get rid of him Should I believe her?—TOBY Dear Toby: You can if you want to, but I don't. A girl doesn'i give her phone number to a guy if she wants to get rid of him. Get your ring back and call ofl he semi - engagement (whatever hat means). It's obvious she wants to date others, and I hope you will do the same. Dear Ann Landers: I suppose you've had this question many imes, but it's new to me, al Jiough I have raised four girls Wy 16-year-old daughter has been [oing with a boy, 19. He's ove lere every night after work am he either goes out with him or hey sit at home. The boy buys her clothing ant other items every single week le has a good-paying job but don't approve of this practice. He comes from a poor family are us parents could use some o he money he is lavishing on her I've mentioned this to my daugh ter but it does no good. Shoulc [ talk to the boy's parents? — ST. LOUIS WOMAN Dear Woman: The boy's parents probably have less control over their son than you have over your daughter — which is precious little. Speaking to them would be bootless. Tell your daughter she may not accept any future gifts other than for a special occasion. Point out to the boy the practicality of saving his money for the future. Make it clear that any other course of action will not be tolerated. "Sweeter than Words" Russell S/over's Valentine CANDIES 318 S.

Pardon the expression but nothing emphasizes this point more than the latest rage of the millinery industry, the nearly- nothing hat. Probably the sunbathers started this one - extreme-to- the other business. They head for the beach wearing all — hats with tall pointed crowns and umbrella sized brims, and sacky beach robes that cover from Adam's apple to ankles. But at surfside they are suddenly in nothing but a few drops of suntan oil and scraps. For years the dress was all dress, with sleeves, a collar, belt, and other furbelows. Then Jacqueline Kennedy put her seal of good taste on the socalled "nothing" dress which without these things is more status symbol than stitching. Indeed, the principle behind the nothing dress is that the less there is of it the more there is to the price tag. Now look at the all-or-nothing hats. For years women have )eeked coquettishly from behind mge brims, or have been swal- owed up completely by cloches hat forgot to say when. For evening there has been the other extreme, a knot or two of net, a pinch of velvet or a pouf of satin. Nearly nothing. Today the wee hat is for day as well as for night, and dress as well as for sport. It's nothing more than a petite pot of posies, or a zany nosegay nestled in hair, lowers are artificial, of course, 'or a degree of permanency, and attached to small velvet discs. Unlike the situation with nothing dresses however, the prices on these are as tiny as the amount of head space they cover. Hairdos inspired nearly nothing • toppers. No other kind of chapeau could find a place to perch in locks teased high and wide. Yet these perky handfuls of lilies - of • the - valley, violets, roses, or whatever, look equally sweet blooming on a simple coiffure. Actually, the whole pleasure ol the almost-nothing hats is thai there are no hard and fast rules for wearing them. Although spring gardens, they don't seem out oi season with fur coats, or out oi character with cocktail dresses, or shaggy wool suits. But the one thing they have in common with "something" hats is that men laugh at these, too PROTEIN PUNCH Strongheart Doo Food is Real Meat- one of nature'* chief sources of body building, energy giving protein.
