TltE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, March 21, 1963 Ann Landers Don't Saddle Deb With Her Sister Dear Ann Landers: We have four cluldren — two boys and two girls. The boys (18 and 17) have never caused us any trouble. They go with the same group of teenagers and get along well together. The girls are 16 and 15. They got along fairly well (though not as well as the boys) until about two years ago Ginger who is 16 is full of fun and has a great many friends Debbie does better in school but she's some- Ann what unsuccessful socially. It is ironic that Debbie is much better looking than her older sister but not nearly so popular with either boys or girls. Ginger has always received a great many more invitations than Debbie. I've insisted that she arrange to have Debbie invited or she must stay home, also. Lately she has become rebellious over this. I say sisterly love is more important than any invitation and that Ginger should not go where Debbie is not invited. We want your opinion.—REFEREE Dear Referee: This is no way to encourage sisterly love, mother. You are creating resentment between these sisters which may will last forever. Insist that Debbie make her own friends. Ginger should not be placed in the unattractive position of begging for an invitation for her sister. You are not being fair to either of these girls. Dear Ann Landers: I see by our newspaper that you firmly believe prolonged mourning is unhealthy. You say it serves no useful purpose and long-time mourning is really "self-pity turned inside out." You usually make pretty good sense. I agree in this case that you are right. Now, I would like to know your views on prolonged courtship? What do you think about couples who go together for years and somehow never seem to get around to marriage? I know oi a couple who have PRINTED PATTERN Cream of the casual crop — this raglan - sleeved sheath with a crisp collar. Sew it in flower- fresh linen, cotton for all-day pleasure.

My initials are the same as yours.—A.L. Dear A.L.: It all depends on the couple. I've said it before and I'll say it again — marriage is not for everyone. Some couples "go together" like salami and rye bread — but they are unable (for a variety of reasons) to function within the framework of marriage. For them — marriage is a disaster — and they are better off "going together." Dear Ann Landers: I married too young like a big fool and had two boys before I was 19. My husband (if you can call him that) started to chase with an older woman. After three years of running around he asked for a divorce. I was sick of his cheating and lying, and was happy to be rid of him. I had a wonderful opportunity to take a road job but it meant boarding out my boys. Mom and dad told me they would take the boys but only if they could adopt them legally. I agreed, seeing no other way out. Two years have passed and I'm through with the road job and am now settled in town. My sons, I'm sorry to say, are growing up like a pair of savages. They talk back to everybody and have no manners whatever. When I correct them my father says, "Shut up. These boys are mine." What can I do?-HEARTACHES Dear Heartaches: Very little. When you allowed your parents to adopt the children you signed away your rights 'as a mother. Try to get the point across to your father that the boys need discipline and must learn to respect others or they will be a problem to themselves and to everyone else. If you can enlist, your clergyman's help, I heartily commend it. To learn the booby-traps of teenage drinking, write for Ann Landers' booklet, "Teenage Drinking," enclosing with your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self- addressed, stamped envelope. Ann 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.

(Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Lodge Guest Of Chapter Members of the Masonic Lodge were special guests of Union Chanter No. 15 Order of the Eastern Star, at a meeting in Masonic Temple last night. Mrs. C. J. Pence worthy matron presided. Officers of the Eastern Star paid tribute to visiting Masons in a specially prepared program based on the relationship of members of the chapter to members of the Masonic Lodge. During the program, Miss Gladys Anthony sang "There's A Grand Fraternity" accompa- nied by Mrs. James Kilgore, organist. The Masons were presented gifts from the chapter, the gifts being distributed by Mrs. Roy Donart, associate matron of Uni- ion Chapter. George Ledom, worshipful master of Ottawa Lodge No. 18, A. F. & A. M., and Melvin Sellers, a past master, expressed the thanks of the visiting Masons for recognition given them by the chapter. Refreshments were served following the meeting. Mrs. H. F. Duvall was chairman of the re- gaslight freshment committee and other members were Mrs, C. L. Farr, Mrs. Joe McGilbray and Mrs. Clara Sinclair. Mrs. Margie Jackson was hostess at the tea table, which was decorated by Mrs. William Ogle with silver tapers in crystal holders a ma- sonic emblem in silver, and a representation of the Holy Bible. Sixty-five persons attended. It was announced the April 3 meeting will begin at 8 p.m. The program for the Garfield Gardners Club last evening at the D. G. Laury home was a flower arranging demonstration. It was given by Mrs. C. J. Alexander of Lawrence, proprietor of Alexander's Flowers and Gifts, assisted by Wayne Babb. Mrs. Alexander said that artificial flowers and materials may be used with fresh flowers, and that frequently they lend exactly the right accent to an arrangement An illustration of this idea was a spring arrangement including an artificial branch and miniature birdhouse and bird. "Group flowers together for the best effect," Mrs. Alexander said. "Don't spot them singly about the arrangement." Gardeners learned that floral wire inserted in a stem or wound about it makes the flower adaptable to various positions. Another trick is attaching a sharp pointed stick or "pick" to flowers or materials with wire. Mr. Babb told the club members that containers may be adapted to different uses by combining them with something else. He illustrated this point by turning a vase upside down and attaching a glass baking dish on top as a holder for a large candle and the flowers in the arrangement. He demonstrated the method of shaping Scotch broom in curves and using them to establish lines in an arrangement. He told the women that an attractive arrangement can be made using only green materials. For this he used croton leaves, Scotch broom, eucalyptus leaves, huckleberry, fashion fern and Bells of Ireland. The most elaborate arrangement fashioned by Mr. Babb was an artificial bird house containing a mother bird on a nest of lavender statice, the whole surrounded by stalks of pussy willow with snapdragons and pink carnations. Mrs. Alexander used yellow Dutch iris, fashion fern and Bells of Ireland for a centerpiece for.the serving table. Mrs. Jerome Minnick conducted a short business session. It was voted to hold a flower show next fall probably in the first week of October. It was announced there will be a plant exchange at the next meeting. Mrs. Laury and her co-hostess, Mrs. Joel Nordeen, served refreshments from a table decorated in yellow and green.
