Ann Landers Can, Too, That Tin Cure Ear Ann Dear Am Landers: Correction, please, on your statement — "You've got a tin ear, brother, and there's no cure for it." There is, indeed, a cure for it, tf "Brother" is willing to work hard. A cousin of mine loved to sing but the poor guy couldn't carry a tun e in a picnic basket. He was determined not to miss the fun of singing, and set out to memorize sounds. He actually slaved at training his ear, and after a while he was able to sing on key. By the time he got to Harvard he sang well enough to join the Harvard Glee Club. For four years he was one of their best baritones. Although he never achieved absolute pitch (this cannot be taught) he did succeed in overcoming his tin ear. -ROBERT C. MARSH Dear Bob: I stand corrected (by the distinguished music critic of the Chicago Sun-Times yet). Thank you, in behalf of all the tin ears in the land. Dear Ann Landers: I'm writing in regard to the 19-year-old girl who signed herself Grace. She and her mother were like Film Given For Program Dr. W. H. Dickinson, district superintendent, showed the film, "Song of the Shining Mountain." the story of American Baptist missionary work with the Crow Indians in Montana.

Special music was given by a vocal quartet composed of Mrs. Gene Cramer, Mrs. Raymond Gillette, Mrs. A. K. Rader, Mrs. Pinney, Mrs. Orville Glenn and Mrs. Evelyn Reddick. Marcia Cudworth was the hostess circle with Mrs.' Orville Glenn pouring. New Honor For Maury help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope. MILWAUKEE (AP)-Shortstop Maury Wills of the Los Angeles Dodgers, a minister's son who specializes in theivery on the Na tional League basepaths, will bbe honored at a dinner tonight as the Athlete of the Year for 1962. The 30-year-old speed merchant will receive the Frederick C. Miller Memorial Trophy, awarded annually by the Fraternal Order of Eagles on the basis of the Associated Press poll of sports writers and sportscasters. The trophy is named for a late Milwaukee brewer and sportsman. Wills was a runaway winner of the Athlete of the Year award after shattering one of baseball's supposedly "unbreakable" records. He stole 104 bases in breaking Ty Cob's mark of 96 set in 1915. He was caught trying to steal only 13 times. strangers. There was no warmth between them. Grace said there never was. You put the whole blame on the mother. I think you could be wrong. My own daughter is 16, and she's another Grace. When she was seven, she let me know she didn't want my hugs or kisses. Whenever I tried to be affectionate she pushed me away. So, I stopped trying. Many times I longed to hold her in my arms but she had set up the barrier. My husband left me when my Grace" was six. Perhaps this is a clue. I remarried a few years later and now have a loving husband and a darling, affectionate daughter. The two girls are as different as night and day. So please print my let ter, Ann, and tell some of those cold daughters to warm up toward their mothers and maybe they will get something in return.—DELTA Dear Delta: No one is born cold." All children want to be loved. If your daughter refused to accept your affection it was because you somehow rejected her first. Your "clue" is a revealing one. You did not love your husband and this child by him was probably unwanted — and unloved. Your second marriage was a good one. You loved the man and you loved his child. A child's heart is the most delicately sensitive machine in the world. It knows. Dear Ann: When I have guests for dinner I like to clear the dishes and leave everything in the kitchen until I can do things my way. My guests think they are doing me a favor when they insist on "helping. I keep repeating, "No, no. . . I'd prefer to do it myself," yet they go right on chipping my china, breaking the stems of my good crystal and scratching the silver. One guest threw a large piece of roast beef into the garbage can before I could stop her. Another guest tossed out several servings of salad saying, "Why clutter up the refrigerator with this?" Please, Ann, tell people when a hostess says she'd rather clean up the dishes herself she means it. Thanks-RUTH Dear Ruth: When some people say "No" it sound like "Maybe." If you don't want help be emphatic. Often it's not what you say but the way you say it, that delivers the message. Confidential to Deserted: Constant use will wear anything out — especially "dear friends." You overdid it, so don't blame them. Confidential to Worried Sick: It is physically, biologically and scientifically impossible, so stop worrying. You need basic information, Boy. Ask your doctor or the Coach to recommend some reading material. To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for Ann Landers' booklet.
