Ann Landers I Don't Hide Pets From Mother Dear Ann Landers: I am 10 years old. My name is Bobby. j I have always wanted a dog but • my mother says dogs are too * much trouble and I'll have to wait until I get married and then my wife will have the job. I was even willing to settle for a cat but Mom wouldn't go for that either. I arn not figuring on g e t- ting married for quite a while so I made a c o m p r o- misc almost. I saved money out of mv allowance of 25 c e n t s a week and bought two goldfish. I also paid 10 cents for fish food. I named one fish De- Gaulle and the other fish Macmillan because these men are very important in the news and the goldfish look like important characters. My problem is I have kept the goldfish in a water pitcher under the bed since Saturday. I am afraid Mom will find them. Please tell me how to break the news. -BOB Dear Bob: Break the news FAST. Two such distinguished characters as Macmillan and De Gaulle do not belong under the bed. Promise Mom you'll take full responsibility for the care of the fish. The water should be changed and the bowl should be washed regularly. Dear Ann Landers: I'm 28, single, and have been keeping company with a man 36. He has been married twice but neither marriage worked out. Fortunately he has no children. I'm a little overweight and could not win any beauty contests. To be honest I never was very popular, even in my younger and slimmer days. This is the only man who has ever asked me to marry him. Kent is attractive, good company and gentlemanly. The big problem is he gets roaring drunk two or three times a week and then he's like a different person. My girl friend tells me no marriage is perfect and that I'm too fussy. She says one day I'll re- gret it. She passed up a chance to marry 10 years ago and has been kicking herself every since Before you advise me, please remember the big three zero is breathing down my neck ami there is nobody else in sight.— CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO Dear Choo Choo: A two • time loser who gets knee • walking drunk two or three times week could hardly be considered a spectacular candidate for marriage. Don't marry a man with an un resolved drinking problem or you'll regret it. Tell him if he can dry out (with or without help) and stay off the saucer for 6 months you'll consider marriage. But not until. Dear Ann Landers: I am a widow 53 years of age but could pass for 10 years younger.

Women's clubs, teas and card-parties are coming out of my ears. To put it bluntly I hunger for male companionship. But how can a decent woman let a man know (without appearing brazen and cheap) that she would like to spend some time with him? A fine gentleman I have known for many years lost his wife two weeks ago. I realize it's a little early for him to be lonesome, but how can I let him know I'm around? He is very desirable and if I just sit back and wait, some- one' else will surely get to him first. Please give me some smart advice.-YOUNG AT HEART Hear Yong: The smartest advice I cm give you is to put away your hunting and fishing equipment and relax. If you've known this man for years, he knows you're around. Nothing is more unattractive to a bereaved widower than a predatory, over-eager female. Confidential to Fed To The Tonsils: If all marriage means to you is making eighteen meals a week for "that big ape" you need more help than I can give you. Are you going steady? Making marriage plans? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Before You Marry — Is It Love Or Sex?", enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Aim 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. CASH--- Classified Adi Sell Household Goods Quickly!
