Ann Landers Institution May Be Best For Son Dear Ann: My letter will sound like a soap opera but every word is true. I'm a widow, 2?, with an 8- year-old son. I have no relatives that I know of, having been raised in an orphanage. My husband was killed in a hunting accident three years ago. His parents who are well-to-do and socially prominent live in another city. The last time I saw them was at my hus- , b a n ds funeral. ' They have shown no interest in me or their grand- ^ child, not even a letter to inquire how we are getting along. I'm sure they wish to ig- Ann nore us because Danny is retarded. I attend night school and work part-time as a stenographer. I'm unable to hold a regular job because of Danny. My pastor and doctor are aware of the physical strain and the financial struggle. They have suggested I put Danny in an institution. I don't want to do it. Danny needs my love and besides he's all I have. Shall I write my father-in-law (whom I haven't seen or heard from in three years) and ask for financial help? I don't want to beg for charity but what can I do?—ELLEN Dear Ellen: You can do as your pastor and doctor advise. I suspect you are hanging on to your child for your sake, rather than his. It may well be that Danny would be happier in an institution. Your in-laws have demonstrated they have no interest in you or your son. This is about as low as people can get and I would not demean myself by asking such heartless clods for help. Dear Ann Landers: I'm a wife and mother, married 10 years and am approaching 34. Maybe Couple Wed In Topeka Beverly Rowland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Rowland, Richmond, and Jack Kelley, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Kelley, Lane, were married Jan. 26, by Dr. Watts in the chapel of a Methodist church in Topeka. Decorations were white mums and pink carnations. The bride wore a street length dress of white chiffon with lace trim and three-quarter length sleeves, a short veil and a pink and white carnation corsage. The bride's mother wore a green brocade dress with white and beige accessories. The bridegroom's mother wore a black brocade dress with black accessories. Their corsages were of white carnations. A reception was held in the church parlor. Becky Rowland was in charge of the guest book. Serving cake and punch were Wilma Rowland and Mrs. Bill Little. The couple is at home at 530 Polk, Topeka. The bride is a graduate of Lane High School and of Clark's Business College. The groom is also a Lane High School graduate. He is employed in Topeka. Announce •r Engagement Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Cunningham, Manhattan, formerly of Richmond, have announced the engagement of their daughter, Phyllis, to David E. Nelson, a pre-medical student at Kansas State University. A summer wedding is being planned. Miss Cunningham, a senior at K-State, is the only granddaughter of Mrs. Winnie Cunningham, Richmond. if I see this letter in print the pure disgust of it will cure me. I've been day-dreaming about a former sweetheart whom I have not seen in 11 years. The day-dreaming started about six months ago when I heard "our" song on the radio. I just sat there like a ninny and all the warm memories washed over me like a glorious wave. Now I can't seem to get the guy out of my mind. The old boy friend was a heel. Morally he isn't fit to shine my husband's shoes and nobody knows this better than I do. How can I shake this shameful, adolescent habit?—LOOSE BOLT Dear Bolt: The one who got away always looks better. In facl they look better "away" than they ever did when they were there. When you feel a day-dream coming on, substitute in its place one of those heelish incidents which persuaded you to marry someone else. Dear Ann Landers: I am making this easy for you because I know you have a lot of letters to read. Just put a check mark in either one of the boxes below One is marked You Pay. The other is marked She Pays. My cleaning lady is the dumbest cluck who ever lived. She has worked for me six years, which entitles me to a medal for patience. Yesterday she overloaded my washing machine. (She said she was trying to save soap.) The motor is now burned out and the repair bill is going to be a lulu. Is she responsible and should I insist that she pay? Or do I pay? — Thank you.—CRAZY CATHERINE Dear Catherine: If it's legal advice you want, see a lawyer. If it's my opinion you want, I am checking you pay. Everyone who employs help expects broken glassware, knickknacks and appliances over a period of time. (And would you be- ieve it, some women actually break things themselves.) Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers f you write for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to lelp you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Take Gelatin Taking gelatin daily over a period of time is sometimes helpful in preventing split finger nails One enjoyable way to take it is in tomato juice. Sprinkle an envelope of unfavored gelatin over a cup of the juice in a saucepan; stir over moderately low heat until the gelatin dissolves Pour into a large cup or mug and drink as you would any hot beverage. This makes a fine weight- weatchers lunch with cottage cheese and melba toast.
