"*•* - - i'f'^ ^5 y*vc'--« Ann Landers Wife's Childish; You Be Grownup ttear Ann Landers: T h r e e months after our marriage my wife and 1 had a spat. She said, "I'm sorry;," That wis 20 years ago and she has never uttered those words since. I have to be the one to give in, right or wrong. If I refuse, she turns on the ice and I get the silent treatment. This can go on for days and even weeks. Finally I decided life in a deepfreeze isn't worth it, so I apologize, even though [ know she is in the wrong. She moved into the guest room on N e w Am Year's Day and has been there ever since. She says she'll move back when I apologize. We have two children, no money worries, no drinking problem, and no pesty in-laws. I've never looked at another woman, although there are times when I wonder why. Is it possible I've been right only once in 20 years? What do you suggest? — ETERNALLY WRONG. Dear Eternally: I suggest that it would be nice if there were at least one adult in your family. Since your wife is operating at an 11-year-old level why don't you be the grown up? She knows when she's right and when she's wrong. If two little words can thaw the deep-freeze, say 'em, for heaven's sake. . . . don't just stand there and shiver! Dear Ann Landers: Our son is 19. He is in college and making fairly good grades. During Christmas holidays May Bard went to visit his girl friend who lives in another city. While there he called and announced that he had given her a ring and wanted us to meet the girls' family. When we got there we were shocked to see the ring was actually a wedding bind with two rows of diamonds. My husband hastened to inform Maynard that the "engagement" ring was actually • wedding band. Maynard said his girl didn't like the conventional engagement rings so they decided on the band. Now, how do we explain this ring to our friends? It looks to all the world as if they are married. Maynard did not react well to his father's criticism and says we are making a big flap over nothing. Are we?— M AND D. Dear M and D: If Maynard and his fiancee don't care for conventional engagement rings they probably don't care what conventional people say. Make no apologies to your friends for the girl's ring. You neither have to defend nor explain your son's "taste." Dear Ann Landers: I'm a high school student 17 years of age. A few weeks ago I had an acci dent in my mother's car. No one was injured but the repair bill was $50. My parents are making me pay the damages which I think is fair, but I don't like the way they wanl to do it. I get an allowance of $4 a week They want to take out $2 a week which would leave me poverty- stricken. I wouldn't have a spare nickel. I want to pay the repair bill with money from my bank ac count. This money has been pu away for my future education. '. would return the $50 to the bank account when I go to work thi summer.

What do you say, Ann?—CRASH Dear Crash: You're going to hate me but your parents are right. Punishment is useless if it imposes no burden. The alternative which you have dreamed up for yourself is too painless. Take your lumps like a good kid. Confidential to Hooked Up Kate: Rejection is not the only reason a young girl would seek the affection of an older man. Sometimes it is a case of Papa worship. Are your parents too strict?

It looks pretty, too. Gilberta Brown Dear Heloise: Every time I buy a toilet seat cover. . . it seems as if the piece of twine which ties it on, either gets broken or gets lost in the hem. What can we do with the covers, besides discarding them? Mary Dear Mary: You can go to a dime store and buy an extra long shoe lace. Cut the tip of the shoe lace off on one end and stick a safety pin through it. Fasten the pin to the lace and use it as a threader to run back THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, March 13, 19M through the little hem itself. This will have to be done about two inches at a time depending on the size of your safety pin. However, here's what I did to mine: Instead of using bias tape or shoe laces. . . I used narrow elastic! After running the elastic through the hem I Just' tie a knot in it and presto. I don't have any more strings to hang» knots to tie, or broken threads. Also the elastic helps hold the cover in place.
