THE OTTAWA HERALD Prklty, Match 15, IMS Ann Landers Wishes Her Dad, Mom Were Strict Dear Arm Landers: When I read letters in your column from teenagers who gripe because their parents are too strict I become so envious I can hardly stand it I'm a 17-year-old girl who may as well be an orphan. My folks don't care what I do. I can go any place, with anyone, at any , time. No questions are ever asked. I've tried to * x talk to my moth- ] er about my boy friends but' she doesn't ev en listen. This 5 morning, as an experiment, I said to h e r, "I sure had a - good time last ..night. Bill and I went to Indiana and got married." She said, "Oh, that's nice." .As usual she wasn't listening and didn't pay any attention to what ,...! had said. ...; All teenagers need rules to follow. It makes them feel as though somebody really cares about them. I'd give anything if my folks act- ed like parents instead of strangers who live in the house and pay the bills.—FREEDOM • LIMITED UN- Dear Unlimited: You've got a 'smart head on those 17-year-old shoulders. I hope your message . .gets through to teenagers and parents. Thanks for writing. Dear Ann. Landers: For over a year I've been dating a widower.

We will probably never marry for a variety of reasons — religious differences being the most important. But he has brought joy and meaning to my life, as I have to his. This man returned from a two- week business trip and I met him at the airport. He expressed a horror of "going into that messy house of his" so I offered to help him straighten it. I was vacuuming and he was unpacking when his married daughter and her family dropped in. We stopped cleaning and chatted a while. It all seemed quite pleasant. The next evening I was told by a reliable source that my friend's daughter was furious to find me in her father's home. She considered my behavior indecent. May I hear from you on this?— PIANISSIMO Dear Pianissimo: I see nothing indecent in a widower having a female guest in his home. And if the guest wishes to help tidy up his place I see nothing indecent in that either. Don't let the daughter put you on the defensive. She probably resents the thought of any woman being friendly with her father. The problem is really hers—not yours. Dear Ann Landers: My sister- in-law is a good person but plenty scatter-brained. How she ever graduated from Smith College with honors no one will ever know. Gwen likes to write letters and I like to receive them because they are always newsy and amusing. But I've leanred never to open an envelope from Gwen in the presence of others because it's impossible to predict what may fall out. / Gwen has written to me on the back of a shirt-card, scribbled notes on brown wrapping paper, and used the reverse side of a PTA bulletin. Yesterday a long letter came on paper-toweling— the kind you'd find -in the ladies room. This is not a gag with her— it's always because "I'm out of stationery and this is handy." I'm getting fed up with her "what-the-heck" attitude. Shall I let her know or would it be best to skip it?-ANYTHING GOES Dear Anyething: If Gwen's "what - Hie - heck attitude" irritates you, spend $2 and send her a nice big box of stationery. Confidential to Thin Walls: Don't go to the manager. Talk to the woman next door and let her know. If the situation does not improve then go to the manager. To learn the difference between a marriage that "settles down" and one that "gets dull," send for Ann Landers' booklet, "What To Expect From Marriage," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.
