fHE OTTAWA HERALD , Tuesday. March M. IMS Ann Landers Boss Is Either Hated Or Loved Ana Dear Ann Landers: I'm still burning over that letter signed "Damp Furniture" from the personnel manager who complained about women who cry all over his upholstery. If this self-styled expert in the , field of human relations knew beans about handling people he'd get more work out of the women and fewer tears. Why do women cry? Occasionally it's because they are nervous and high strung. But usually it's because some jerk with two years seniority is trying to m a k e life unbearable. A top - notch personnel director knows his people. He won't stand by and see faithful, hardworking employees abused by vicious, miserable tyrants who vent their hostilities and anxieties on subordinates. I've worked in offices for over 25 years and what I've seen in the line of organized back-biting could fill this news paper. I've never cried but there were times when I could have died.—DRY- EYED VETERAN Dear Vet: Thank you for a clear - eyed account from a dry- eyed veteran. Judging from my mail no one is indifferent to the personnel director. They love him or they hate him. Dear Ann Landers: I married too, young. I realized early that the marriage was a mistake and since there were no children I insisted on a divorce. A few years later I met and married a marvelous man. We have two precious little girls, 2 and 4 years old. We couldn't be a happier family. The question is this: Should we tell our daughters at an early age that their mother was married to another man before she married their father? Or shall we say nothing and hope they don't hear it from outsiders? I'm aware you advise parents of adopted children to tell the youngsters at an early age that they are adopted so the knowledge will not come as a shock. A close friend of ours says this is the same thing. My husband and I can't decide if it is or if it isn't. We are asking you to help us.— QUANDARY Dear Quandary: An adopted child should grow up with the knowledge that he is adopted because he is the central figure in the story. The news that moth er had an unsuccessful marriage before she met Daddy can wait until the child is about 10. The divorce should be mention- ed casually, but it's unwise to remain silent about such things — in the hope that no one will mention it. Old skeletons have a way. of falling out of closets at :he most unexpected moments and he clatter can be terribly embarrassing. Dear Ann Landers: This letter is for "Carbondale" the 21- year-old girl who wants to leave lome and make a career for herself in Chicago. Her mother and sisters say she is selfish and inconsiderate. They claim she has no right to burden them with worry. You gave her a good answer, but I'd like to make it even stronger, because many years ago t was in Carbondale's spot. Unfortunately, I didn't have an Ann Landers to write to and I let my Family talk me out of it. I've been sorry ever since. I'm not blaming them. I blame myself for not having the gumption to leave, in spite of their whinning. Other young people have had relatives who tried to keep them at home forever, but they left in spite of them. To any boy or girl of legal age who has a dream I say, "Don't let anything or anyone stop you. Go while you are still vigorous and unafraid—or you will never go ."_NO STARS IN MY EYES Dear No Stars: Amen. To learn the boody-traps of teenage drinking, write for Ann Laders' booklet, "Teenage Drink ing," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Am 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.
