T Ann Landers Rainy Day She Saved For Here Ann Dear Ann Landers: My spinster sister made a death-bed promise to mama that she would never be put in a nursing home. Without asking me, my sister said I would take her to live with me. That was six years ago when mama was 83. Today she is almost 90. Sister's promise was a safe one because no nursing home would take our mother. She belongs in a mental ins t i t u t i o n. Father left her a substantial in- { heritance from which she has been drawing interest for 23 years. She has not spent one dime of her own money since after father died. She is saving it "for her old age." My husband and I are going broke keeping nurses in our home around the clock. Mama can't be left alone for a minute and I haven't the strength to be with her more than eight hours a day. Even with nurses on duty she has set fire to the mattress twice. Is this fair when mama has money of her own? She keeps saying she's going to leave all her money to a horse she sees on TV. It would not surprise me if she did. Please advise.—MARY Dear Mary: You need a lawyer and I hope you get one fast. It is not fair for you and your husband to go broke caring for your mother when she has an income of her own. People who put money away for a rainy day sometimes have to be told it's raining. Dear Ann Landers: I was a booze-fighter when I met Wilma — and the booze was winning. I had lost three good jobs because of my drinking. Wilma helped me off the juice and onto the wagon. I was bone-dry for 17 months- then Friday night it happened. The office manager's wife had a baby girl after four boys. He was out of his mind with joy. He ordered up three bottles of Scotch and invited everyone in the office to celebrate with him. I couldn't refuse to have just one — sort of a toast to the little princess. You can guess the rest. I blew a dinner date with Wilma, in fact, I didn't even remember we had a date until 2:00 a.m. Then I telephoned her. She slammed the receiver on my ear and took the phone off the hook. Today I got my ring back by special messenger. Please help me.-SAD AND SORRY Dear Sad: When will guys like you learn that one drink is too many and one hundred is not enough? I can suggest only that you go to Wilma and beg her to forgive you. With a record of 17 months of sobriety she may give you another chance. (P.S. To Wilma. Please give the guy a break.) Dear Ann Landers: We raised our niece right along with our own children. Clara's parents died when she was nine and we treated her as if she were our daughter. Last May she married a young man who is pleasant but brainless. He has a steady job at a mill and makes good money. My husband and I own a little grocery store. Every Friday without fail Clara and her husband come to the store and fill up two or three large shopping bags with whatever they need. Clara says "Thanks a lot" and they drive off. Is it possible they don't know we have to pay for our merchandise? I just can't believe it, but since they're both pretty stupid that may be the answer. My husband is fed up with this weekly ritual. Would it be petty f we came right out and told them how we feel? As I sa she is like a daughter to us.— DWINDLING INVENTORY Dear Dwindling: Tell these moochers they can have whatev er they need at the price you paid for it. This is a much better deal than they can get elsewhere.

The people who can afford the clothes of such designers as Christian Dior of New York, Adele Simpson, Sarmi, Scaasi, Jean Louis, Rudi Gernreich and the like don't have to fret about elements. They can choose their climates to fit their clothes and be there by jet within hours. Thus, the collections of these couturies cannot be classified as to season simply by color, or fabric, or the degree of cover up, or uncover. Fleecy, light - weight wool coats are in pastel hues, especially ice blues and pinks, when it isn't even spring. These are wonderful winter colors are being held over into the next clothing season by popular request. But just as frequent in picture are Roundabout Art Pro gram Mrs. W. A.

Conditioned by the hidebound tyle rules of the past, women always expect to find wispy chif- on in summer and slinky crepes and wools in winter. But these easonless designers are dishing ap both for any kind of weather. They also serve up bulky tweeds nd bushy woolens as often in une as they do in January. The designers do give the fur age a short reprieve, but not Watch Size When you are making a cake from a mix, be sure to use the size of pan specified on the package — usually a choice of pans are given.

It never did hibernate, scoi the designers. At least they, the couturies, have done their part to stimulate a year 'round ro mantic spin by stitching int their garments such necessary ingregients as allure, feminity am mystery.
