March 11, MM Ann Landers Man Doesn't Need Colorful Plumage Dear Ann Landers: Men make unkind remarks about what we Women wear. I'd like to express my views on men's fashions. The thing men call a suit is the most unimaginative, the dullest get-up ever stitched together. Why must men's suits be so drab? Why always a lifeless grey or a muddy brown? The,*! greys are n o t even true greys. And the blacks are not t r u e blacks. Men should rebel against dead colors which Ann have been foisted on them by convention bound manufacturers. Let them demand electric blue, shocking pink and emerald green. And why not an occasioal floral And why not an occasional floral pattern to liven up a dreary day? Don't say it can't be done, Ann. All it takes is a ball of fire like you to get behind the idea. Will you join me in this great crusade to revolutionize the men's clothing industry?—LOVER OF COLOR Dear Lover: Sorry, but you'll have to revolutionize the men's clothing industry without this "ball of fire." I haven't the faintest interest in seeing men in shocking pink or electric blue •uits. In the kingdom of our feathered friends the male has the colorful plumage to attract the female. The human male does just fine in his muddy browns and char coal greys. Dew Aon Landers: I've been fniag with a 33-year-old bachelor for almost four years. Sam's family likes me, religion is no .problem, and he is well-set financially. But he is extremely reticent about taking the big step. Sam wants a home and family and so do I. Last night he told me the stumbling block to our marriage is my "past." j He has heard gossip about me and insists that before we marry I tdl him everything so he'll know what he must face in regard to my reputation. I have no desire to think about my mistakes, much less talk about them. I also fail to see how this knowledge Wffl make him feel better, as he insists. I believe he should accept me as I am anc take into account the fact that I have been a faithful sweetheart Investors MORTGAGE BANKERS INCORPORATED for over four years. He claims ] owe it to him to make a full confession and "clear the air." My future depends on your answer.-SLEEPLESS NIGHTS Dear Sleepless: If the air isn't clear by now you can be sure "a full confession," complete with the names and numbers of all the players, will not help. Sam wants: (A) An escape hatch — "Sorry, but it's all too sordid, ray dear. I don't think I could ever trust you now." or (B) A nice fat club to hit you over the head with later. A man of integrity would not be interested in playing Truth or Consequences. Dear Ann Landers: Please tell me if I am right or wrong to ask my husband to do this simple thing. Milton is a tmck driver. I know he can take a coffee break any time he wants to. He leaves the house every morning at 6:30 a.m. By the time 8:00 o'clock conies around he is ready for a cup of coffee. I want Milton to come by the house and take our eight-year- old daughter to school. She is susceptible to colds and is now recovering from the mumps. He says he can't do it because it may interfere with his job. I believe he is just making up excuses because he doesn't want to be bothered. Milton thinks you are a smart woman. Maybe he will listen to you. Please print your advice so he can see it—TROUBLED Dear Troubled: The advice is PEOPLES NATIONAL BANK HOSTESSES FOR CHURCH PROGRAM - These five women were among hostesses for reception following rededication ceremonies yesterday at Ottawa's Bethany Chapel Baptist Church.

Nor could companies already located here continue to grow and prosper, without first-class telephone service. Providing this essential service is, however, only one way that Southwestern Bell contributes to the growth and development of Kansas. Here are some other ways: Jobs for 5800 Kansans who earn $31 million a year •Construction costs averaging $29 million annually for expansion and improvement • Local telephone taxes amounting to $8V4 million a year • Additional local purchases made by tha company and its 5800 employees. Providing jobs for Kansas people ; ; . helping pay for essential coma munity services through taxes . . . spending millions to make telephone service better to serve you better ... all solid evidence of how the tele* phone business contributes to Kansas' development and prosperity^ Looking at it another way, Southwestern Bell's role m the state's economy equals, each year, the impact of several new large industries locating plants in Kansas. And we intend to continue our construction program year after year as long as it is economically sound to do soj SOUTHWESTERN BELL 1 Making telephone service better to serve you better
