Ann Landers No Such Thing As Woman's lob Dear Ann Landers: As one of the first editors in America to print your column I have more than a casual interest in it. As a parent I have cheered when I felt your counsel was good. Today I thought your counsel was not good. I refer to your approving of boys helping Mom in the kitchen. As I see it the central issue is should a boy do male work—carrying out t h e trash, mowing the lawn, shoveling the snow, and so on? Or should he do female wo r k, such as drying the dishes? Togetherness has been carried to extremes and with disastrous results. Years ago the situation was equally bad with the all- powerful male and the meek female. But the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction. If you start boys out in the kitchen they will forever be mama's boys and yes-men to women. You may think I'm nuts but I wouldn't dream of letting our Johnny help with the dishes, except in an emergency.—C.W. Dear Editor: Today work knows no gender. During World War n when America was engaged in a production race for survival, women proved that when there is a job to be done it PRINTED PATTERN 4761 SIZES 10-20 Easter news!

A boy in the kitchen needn't be a yes man or a mama's boy. He can be a useful member of the family whose willing hands are making lighter work for his mother. Your statement that you wouldn't dream of letting your Johnny help with the dishes — "except in an emergency" — helps to make my point. If Johnny is kept out of the kitchen to protect his maleness, he'd be useless in an emergency. Dear Ann Landers: I am a boy 16. I see by your column that you are not in favor of teenagers holding hands in church. I happen to think holding hands in church is a very good idea, so long as you don't forget why you are in church. Today I read an article in our newspaper which proves that a certain minister in England is on my side. Apparently a couple of clergymen in London are having a hassle about this subject. One minister said, "It is a good and natural thing for young people to bring their friendships into God's presence." What do you have to say now, Ann Landers?—DENNIS Dear Dennis: I say you're a pretty sharp cookie. But I also read the article in my newspaper and this is what the other clergyman had to say: "I do not approve of too much familiarity among teenagers in church. The way some of them hold hands and flirt back and forth I should not be surprised one day to see them necking in the back pew." Thank you for writing, Dennis. I hope you will remember why you are in church. And if you keep your Bible-holdin' hands to yourself, Bub, it will be a lot easier. Dear Ann Landers: That college fellow who is in a state of depression because he doesn't have a beard, ought to get down on his knees and thank the Lord for his soft, beardless face. After the first couple of years of marriage my face began to break out in a rash. I tried staying away from certain foods, I changed from a down pillow to a foam rubber pillow. I bought skin lotions and creams. Nothing seemed to help. Finally, I went to a skin specialist. He matter-of-factly said, "This looks like an irritated condition caused by a man's beard. Well, he was right. My husband's beard has gotten tougher with the passing of time and he was scratching me to pieces. There's no cure for it. The only alternative is to keep away from him — and I don't want to do that.—MRS. SCAR-FACE Dear Mrs: Thanks for your story. I hope it will make baby- face feel better. Does almost everyone have a good tune but you? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked." enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped 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.
