When I was 15 I quit high school and left home. I met lots of older men and not of the highest type. I'm sorry to say I did some things I'm very much ashamed of. When I was working as a waitress I fell for a trucker who was separated from his wife. I lived with him for two years. Then I met Dave. He was the first decent man lever went with. Dave asked me to marry him even though he knew all about my rotten past. We've been married 12 yeas, have four children and I'm the happiest and most grateful woman alive. I came within an inch of being a rum-bucket and a tramp. Last night Dave brought an out-of-town customer home to dinner. I almost died when I saw the guest. He's the man I lived with. I know he recognized me at once but he gave no hint. Shall I tell Dave, or should I contact my old flame and beg him Ann wanted to know what to do about a teenage daughter who wore his sweaters, jackets, shirts, socks —everything she could get her hands on. You told him he wasn't doomed for life — just until his daughter got married. Well, I can tell him that marriage may end the problem for him, but it's just the beginning for his son-in-law. My impeccably dressed son married a girl who is larger than he is. She was a tomboy who loved to wear her father's clothes. Her father was a large man and his clothes fit her fine. From the day she married my son she has been wearing his clothes and has wrecked almost his wardrobe. ever article in His sweaters are stretched out of shape, the sleeves in his jackets are popping at the seams. She stuffs herself into his jeans and slacks — even though they fit her like sausage casings. So please tell the fathers who have this problem to knock the habit in the head early — and save some poor unsuspecting husband a lot of grief.—ONE WHO KNOWS Dear One: Thank you for a most revealing letter. I didn't realize this habit was transferable. (Are you listening papa?) Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I had dinner at the home of friends last evening. When the hostess cleared the table she jathered all the meat scraps on ler own plate and placed it on the floor. I thought I was hear- ng things when she shouted, 'Here, Prince, come and get it!" Much to my astonishment, the to keep his LUCKY LEE mouth shut?- Dear Lucky: Keep your mouth shut. Unless the man is a miserable heel he'll do the same. Dear Ann: I'd like to answer "Daddykins" — the father who Program On Sculpture The program of Omega Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi, last evening was on "Sculpture and Wood Carving."

By JEAN SPRAIN WILSON AP Fashion Writer NEW YORK (AP) - "It's God's plan," a philosophical young mother once said, "to make all things young and helpless so precious that adults automatically become their adoring protectors." The garment industry does its bit to help with the plan. To be sure, nothing can match the appeal of baby in his birthday suit, but a child has to be taught modesty sometime, and be kept warm and dry. And mothers have to play dolls with their young. And worshipful grandmothers have to have something adorable to shop for. Not just any toddler clothes will do. For babies have to be comfortable in them. Yet they must learn to button buttons, and pull things over their heads and down to their feet. Because theirs is an age of no inhibitions, wee ones' apparel must shed water, jam, mud pies, and crayon marks. Indeed, the laundering and ironing, too, must be such a cinch that young mothers will have plenty of time for play. Despite these practicalities, children's clothes must be so fetching on freshy scrubbed faces that Daddies can't wait to get home from the office to give a squeeze and a hug before the kids are dirty again. Fashion themes can be anything. Among the favorites for boys are nautical ones. Yet even KANSAS CHERRY BLOSSOM PRINCESS - Patricia Lou Thiele, Scott City, has been chosen Kansas Cherry Blossom Princess. A senior at Fort Hays State College, Patricia will be in Washington, D. C., for busy week, starting March 31, during Cherry Blossom Festival. Kayettes Fete Fathers At Party Senior High Kayettes gave • Father • Daughter dessert par* ty last evening at Eugene Field School with "Dad's Darling," as the theme. A brown, yellow and green color scheme was carried out. Punch and cake were served to the approximately 120 fathers and daughters present. The president, Darlene Diven, gave a welcome. Susan Kelly gave two vocal solos, accompanied by Susan Sandow. Mr. John J. Pinney showed a program of slides taken in Italy and Ireland. Kayette sponsors are Miss Genevieve Gillette and Miss Nora Evans. Mothers helping with the party were Mrs. Chester Bechtle, Mrs. John R e y« nolds, Mrs. Charles Burlingham, Mrs. Nelson Tipton and Mrs. Al Mages. Marcia Doman was general chairman, Nancy Burlingham, program; Mary Tipton, food; Kay Reams, decorations; and Kris Ziegler, dishes. Conclave Honors Officers Mrs. Lee Finch presided at the Refreshments were served by mutt came prancing into the dining room, and ate the left-overs right off the wedgewood. The hostess noticed the expression of astonishment on my face and told me in no uncertain terms hat a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's. She further stated that hot water and soap alls every kind of germ and that after the dish comes out of the dish washer it is safe for even a iny baby. On the way home my husband said he didn't think he would care to eat there again. I feel the same way. What is your opinion?—YONKERS Dear Yonkers: Strictly from an esthetic point of view it would better to keep the dog's dishes separate. Your friend's statements however were correct. So she'd be doing the dog a favor :>y not subjecting him to human germs. To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Necking and Petting—And How Far To Go," 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. as tots they don't sneer at the astronaut jumpsuit idea, or miniatures of Dad's own wardrobe. Girls, on the other hand, like to be girls with ruffles and bows and lace and embroidery and smocking and puffed sleeves. Colors are important. The small fry express preference for primary colors, a psychologist's survey of the play pen crowd tells us. But mothers and grandmothers prefer white for special occasions, although they know white doesn't stay white very long on babies. Little girls still find themselves in pink, most often and little boys in blue. Yet doting parents are learning that sunny yellows and pale greens are good hues for both sexes. These neutral pastels, as well as bold plka dots and candy stripes on the market for the new generation are the best choices for shower gifts. That's the whole fun of baby fashions.
