She has a heart as big as a moun- 'tain.- I love her as much as I love my own mother. But, Ann, I just can't , stand .her cooking. Whenever I eat dinner at her house, I get, heart burn and indi- gestirjn for two days. Ma cooks old- country ' style. Everything . is s w i mining in chicken • fat, She sets enough food ..on the ta- We to f^ed an array. And to make ' matters worse. Ma, always seats me Ana next to her so she can push my arm and say, "Eat, Harry. Eat." I wouldn't hurt her feelings for the world: 'This wonderful woman puts her heart and soul into her cooking; but I just can't look another jbjpwl of .chicken-noodle soup in tfielace. 1 1 My wife says I should write to • you. She can't figure a way out either, - HIGH CHOLESTEROL HARRY DeaV" Hairy: • Phone your doc tor. f He will be happy to take you off the hook. The .next time your mother-in- law invites' you to dinner say, "Look, Ma, the doctor has me on a special diet. I can't eat at your house until I get my cholesterol down." If you explain it she'll understand. • . . Dear Am Landers: I just read the letter signed "Irate" and for the first time in my life I feel compelled to toss in my two cents worth. My husband and I are also "Irate." We, too have been married seven years and have no children. Our friends also pestered, nagged and harangued us to death about being childless. We were called selfish, short -sighted, and were likewise warned that our marriage'Would end in the divorce courts. For five years we put up with crille inquiries; of friends, relatives, and total strangers. Then one day some smart aleck collared me at a cocktail party and asked why we didn't have any children. I replied in a voice which 4buld be heard across the room, I |I'm sterile." His jaw dropped fix inches ;arid hV'couIdii't get away from me fast enough.

"*i i ' '-,-*«'••" A 'V| Dear Baroness: Thank you for file jaw-dropper. (Mine dropped, too.) Here's another response to flie same letter: V '. • Dear Ann Landers: That letter signed "Irate" brought back bit- ier memories. For years I was plagued by'clods who wanted to ijnow why my husband and I had no children, Then one day, for the 500*h tune, I heard that familiar line, "You don't know what you're missing." Something inside snapped. I replied: < "Yes we do know what we're missing. Our friends have, told us. tye're missing diapers/whooping cough, measles, mumps, chickenpox, allergies, polio shots, floor- walking till dawn midnight rushes to the hospital, summers without a vacation, winters without a vacation, dental braces, PTA meetings, ti?d-up telephones, and smashed fenders. Yes, we are missing a great many things and we know it. Now, let's get on with the bridge game, girls." DENIED CHILDREN "Dear Denied: Thanks for your point of view. No one who has children can deny that you are right. I >And now perhaps some of our readers who are in a position to know will write and tell .you about the other things you are missing like chubby little arms around your neck, trusting eyes that say, ^You're wonderful," the deep sense of satisfaction that comes with seeing little children develop into useful and joyous adults. It's a list that could go on forever. Are you going steady? Making marriage plans? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Before You Marry — Is It Love Or Sex?", enclosing with .your request 20 cents in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope.
