!i4nn Landers Birds Out Of The Nest Dear Ann Landers: Am guilty? Can a mother make home so comfortable for her.chil- dren that they don't want to leave? My sons are 27 and 29 years old — attractive, well - educated and successful in business. They like girls, but apparently they •re too contented with things as to 11 to six women who got together to give one party? Please en- me.—LUMPED m$Wf*fttr • they are to exert the energy make homes of their own. I was left a widow when my! boys 'were .teen-| agers. I have' a steady in- ; come from my] husband's estate. I'd 1 o v e to] m o v e into a I small apartment but t h e boys won't let Am me. They adore this house. I've told them the first one who marries can -have the house as a present — |; but nothhig happens. Both of these 'youiig men have a great deal; to Differ * girl. 'I pray every: -night 'they will get married and have families of their own, but time marches on and here they sit. Please suggest something. — ENOUGH BACHELORHOOD ALREADY Dear Already: Sometimes the mama bird has to shove the baby birds out of the nest so they will learn to fly. Start shoving. Serve notice now that you are looking for an apartment and that they must find another place to live or engage a housekeeper who will stay in the family home with them. Dear Am Landers: Is my sister's boy friend cheating' the telephone company or not? I say he is. My lister says no. Will you be the judge? ^ John works nights. He likes to call my sister every few hours just to chin. He usually calls her about 8:30 and ,10:30 in the evening; The place where he works has only coin telephones and he can't afford the loot. So — he drops the dime into the phone, lets it ring twice and hangs up. That's the signal for her to call Dear Lumped: Sorry, Old Girl, but when several hostesses band together to entertain and you accept the invitation, you are then obligated to each of them. If this sort of "togetherness" irritates you, don't accept. Confidential to TORN: "What you don't now can't hurt you" is a meaningless i collection of words. What you don't know can hurt you — and plenty. Ignorance is dangerous. Get the correct information from your physician and stop burying your head like an ostrich. To learn the knack of feeling comfortable with the opposite sex, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Date Bait," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed; stamped envelope. -,,_ Ann* Landers wall be glad to help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

She calls him •and they talk — forever^ ' My sister says this is back not cheating because John doesn't talk on the call. All he does is signal her to call him. What's the verdict? Honest or dis- bonest?-DIOGENES Dear Diogenes: It's dishonest. Telephones are instruments of communication — not signaling devices. When you add up all the chiselers who are trying to beat the system by signaling in a variety of ways it represents an enormous amount of tied-up equipment for which the company gets no revenue. Somebody has to pay for 'these shenanigans, and who do you think it is? You and I, Bub. Dear Ann Landers: I'm enclosing a clipping from the society section of/ our newspaper. As you can see, six hostesses have joined hands to give a puncheon for • bride-to-be. I can understand two women giving a party together, particularly if they are related, or if one has a large home and the other has not. But six women hosting one party* Reallyi I know two of these women' welt;, a third- is a casual acquaintance; , and the other three have I never been inside my home.
