Landers Don't Go In Hock | ' ' ' ;' * For Fancy Funeral ; pear Ann Landers: Are you out of your mind? I was shock* lea* when I read that you think it's'just grand to have a funeral 'for a cat - "Powder Puff was ; her name. Shortly after that you I published a letter in your col- i umn praising a crazy mother who had a lovely funeral for their cocker spaniel. The kids stood at the dog's grave and sang, "Oh where oh where has my little dog gone?" All this gets the nod from y you, but you are against spending money on:, flowers and a ' beautiful c a s- ket for a loved : one. ; According to : you it's how we treat people i when they are alive that counts. , I agree in part, but I feel it's also important to treat them well when life has departed. You said the dead can't smell • the flowers nor can they see the ] plush lining of a costly casket. Well, they can't hear the sermon either. Maybe there should be no religious services either? Why < don't you go back to housework? -FORMER ADMIRER Dear Former: Thank you for your poinT of view. You write well, but you don't read so hot. I'd like to make two points: 1. You are confusing a child's love for his pet with the panoply of an extravagent funeral. 2. I. am not opposed to flowers or beautiful caskets. I am opposed to people hocking their eyeballs to put on funerals which are beyond their financial means. P.S. I did housework and I like writing a column better. Dear Ann Landers: A certain woman who works in our office loves to be in charge of office collections. Whenever she hears of someone who is ill, of a death .in the family or an approaching marriage she takes right over. Last week one of the girls resigned to move to another city. I counted the names of 47 people who contributed anywhere from 50 cents to $1 for the farewell gift. When the honored guest opened the package I was shocked to see two small items which could not have cost more than $5 a piece. And then there was a funeral for another employee severa months ago. This same woman collected $1 from everyone. The small basket of cut-flowers from 50 people was a pathetic sight. No one ever knows exactly how much she collects nor does she ever show a receipt. What can be done about this? HORN SWOGGLED Dear Horn: Although your suspicions seem well - grounded you can't accuse the woman withou solid evidence. Keep your ear to the grounc and when you hear of an approaching event that will trigger an office collection, grab the ini tiative. Then be sure thlt you tost the list of givers and jhe •eceipts on the office bulletin board. The contrast in procedure will speak more eloquently than anything you could say. '• \ Dear Aim Landers: I get up! at 6:00 a.m. five days a week to fix my husband a big .breakfast. On Saturdays and Sundays he doesn't go to work but he gets up just the same because he can't sleep. He expects me to get up on those days and get him the same big breakfast. I do all my own work and don't have the energy some women have. I'd enjoy sleeping a few extra hours but he insists it's my duty to get up and make him breakfast whether he goes to work or not.. He doesn't care for church, sports or visiting friends. He spends most of his weekend in bed reading, watching TV anc just sleeping. I can't go back to bed during the day because I have too much work. Do I have the right to sleep until 8:00 a.m. on the days my husband doesn't have to go to work?—TRUDY Dear Trudy: Your husband's punishing behavior is a symptom of a deeper problem. You two need the help of a marriage counselor or a clergyman. A man who really cares about his wife would not make such unreasonable demands. He'd be delighted to let her sleep a few extra hours. Does almost everyone have a good time but you? If so, sent For Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin anc a long, self-addressed, stampec envelope. Ann Landers will be glad to help you with your problems. Sent them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope.
