Ann Landers A Beauty Parlor No Spot For Lad Dear Ann Landers: Your advice is fairly good most of the time but you are wrong once in a while. Recently you told a mother not to put curlers in her son's hair because children who are treated like members of the opposite sex sometimes develop homosexual tendencies. I would like you to know that I've been putting curlers in my son's hair since he w a s three years of age. He is eight now and just loves to go to the b e a u t y shop with me. When I make an appointment for myself I make one for him, too. I'll have you know that my son is all boy. He's not a rough neck but he's no sissy either He likes model airplanes and ships, and never misses a war story on TV. He also enjoys masculine sports and even plays on the Little League baseball team. So, you see, Ann Landers, you don't know everything. — A PRINTED PATTERN 4869 _ .«» MOTHER WHO IS RAISING AN ALL-AMERICAN BOY Dear Mother: You're right. I don't know everything. But I do know that an eight-year-old son should not be .sitting under the dryer in the beauty shop next to his mother. If this All-American boy of yours goes to Little League practice with curlers in his hair you'd better teach him how to, fight. Dear Ann 'Landers: My wife's mother is dying of cancer. The doctors say she can't live more than a few weeks. My wife is taking it awfully hard. Her mother lives two thousand miles from here and the trip would be expensive. Her sister has written that their mother is under heavy sedation and sometimes she doesn't recognize members of the family. She has suggested that my wife not come now, but wait till the funeral. My wife agrees this would be best. Frankly, I don't think my wife should go now or to the funeral. She is a nervous person anyway and this ordeal would make a wreck out of her. Furthermore, our children are small and I would have to arrange with the neighbors to take the baby when I am at work. It would also mean that I'd be doing the laundry and cooking. Wouldn't it be more sensible to use the trip money on something we need? We need plenty. What is your advice?—SPOKANE DAD Dear Dad: I don't know what you "need" but there are mighty few things as important as sending your wife to her mother's uneral. If you deny her this trip because you think it would be more sensible to spend the money on scratching else, you'll regret it. Dear Ann Landers: I'm 17 and live with my father and stepmother. I don't mind working around the house, in fact, every girl should do her share, but I don't think it's fair that I have : ull responsibility for my four- year-old stepsister. Betsy. If I want to go anywhere after school or on Saturday or Sunday have to take my little stepsister along. My stepmother says she is' cooped up all day and needs some relief. I hate to plan Eor a date on weekends because if my folks decide to go out I Give Film For GarfieldPTA Charles Mavity, Jr., announced the program for Garfield PTA last evening.

It's part of being a useful, contributing member of the family. But "help" does not mean full responsibility. You should not be expected to take the little girl with you after school nor should you be asked to cancel weekend dates to stay at home with her. In an emergency, teenagers should be willing to make sacrifices, but every weekend can't be an emergency. Are you tempted to smoke because the crowd does? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Smoking," enclosing with your request 10 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed 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. Past Matrons Hold Meeting Mrs. V. I. Crotts was hostes for Past Matrons Club last evening.
