He brought home a safety deposit box with a lock bigger than my head. When he got ready for bed this evening, he took everything out of his pockets, billfold, checkbooks, indeification cards, etc., put them in the box and made a great show of locking it. He then put the key in the pocket of bis pajama and pinned the pocket together with a big safely pin. In all my life I have never taken a thing that didn't belong to me. I wouldn' dream of going into his pockets or snooping in his belongings. Our home has never been Anm burglarized and nothing has ever been missing. He is 53 years old and has a good job. He has always been moody and sort of a sourpuss but this behavior is the worst yet. What does it mean?—INSULTED Dear Insulted: The man sounds more sick than ornery. If he continues this locking up ritual insist that he see a doctor for a physical check up. Phone the doctor for an appointment and inform him of your husband's odd behavior. He will take it from there. Dear Ann Landers: Our 18 year-old daughter graduated from high school last Spring and didn't want to go to college. She took a business course and is now working in an office. At Christmas time she inform- ed us that she and a young man who works in the accounting department are officially engaged to be engaged. Don't ask me what that means. We don't know either. She is wearing his fraternity pin and he eats here every night. The boy's parents live in Fort Worth and he is planning on driving down to see them next month. He wants our daughter to drive with him so she can meet his folks. This is a 700 mile trip and would mean two nights on the road. My husband is against it. I am undecided. Our daughter says we are living in the dark ages. Your opinion? — QUEEN VICTORIA Dear Vic: It would be neither wise nor proper to O.K. a 700 mile trip. It's too long — even in Texas. Your daughter can fly down, and meet his folks and then fly home. But these two should not be traveling together. Dear Ann Landers: You must be a sadist. What do you mean by saying it's okay for a teenager who got a failing mark to be grounded for six weeks? A drunk driver gets 30 days. Is this worse? I'm a 17-year-old boy and I think you should look at it from our side. Contrary to what parents think, all students can't make straight A's. Besides, too much emphasis is put on grades anyway. Teachers can make a big difference, too. Certain teachers are tough graders. Kids would do better if their parents rewarded them for good grades instead of punishing them ONTGOAAERY WARD ITS NEW ITS AT WARDS Fashion Department Laminates To Shape NEW COATS for Spring...

Plans were made to honor past patrons and past matrons, and to hold a potluck supper for members and families in the near future. Reports were given by those who visited the Swan Chapter, LaCygne, recently. Refreshments were served by Esther Lombard, Ethlean True, Barbara Oyer and June Betz. for bad grades. Or at least in this case they should have given "Prisoner" a break and waited to see if she could bring up her flunk next time. Be on our side once, will you? - GLAD TO BE GRADUATING IN JUNE Dear Glad: Prisoner was grounded because she flunked a subject, not because she didn't make all A's. Remember? A student who can't eke out a D should not be allowed a full social life. Sorry, Bub. The advice stands. Does almost everyone h a v e a good time but you? If so, send for Ann Landers booklet, "How To Be Well Liked," enclosing with your request 20c in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Hints From Covers Ironing Board With A Worn By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloise: Please — quickly — tell all of your readers that those old blankets they thought were completely worn out can be used for the most useful project in their own homes. No matter how worn the blanket is — if it's slit, faded, or beyond repair — it's the most wonderful padding for an ironing board that you have ever used! The wool is not o n 1 y absorbent but downy and it seems to absorb t h e steam which rises from sprinkled clothes. I suggest using your method which said to cover the ironing board with a piece of foil — as after 20 years of ironing — I have found that this was a terrific idea. The foil seems to reflect the heat and my ironing goes twice as fast. However, by putting the blanket underneath the foil, I find that I have less than half the wrinkles I used to. Lonnie Dear Heloise: I keep my gift wrap paper in Heloift* boxes (with the cutter edge) that waxed paper and foil come in. It is so easy to pull out what is needed and to cut it evenly. This saves time, the paper is kept clean and the boxes can be stored easily and neatly on a shelf. A Reader Dear Heloise: My husband is a cabinet maker and has to buy many stainless steel sinks. I have one. We have found that some of the dark stain which occurs is a preserving coating, and most can be removed by taking a paper towel with a little rubbing alcohol and rubbing hard. This shines it up like glass. Stainless steel sinks get prettier with use. If, after using, you will take a paper towel and wipe it dry, it's even better. A Reader Dear Heloise: Do letters from gentlemen help? Here is my formula for cleaning children's stuffed toys, woolly or otherwise, it does not matter: I use mild soap and warm water to wash them with. Toss them into your automatic washer and dryer and that's all there is to it, girls. . . If the stuffing permits. But do not place toys with cute plastic faces in your dryer. They come out like well-masticated bubble gum! Hang them in the sun or a warm area in your home. Give a slight brushing after they are dry. That's all there is to it. Dick Mason Dear Heloise: I vacuum small throw rugs by standing on one end of it and pushing the vacuum cleaner away from me from the center of the rug to the edge of it. Be sure to push the suction portion of the cleaner all the way off the edge of the rug. Then tilt the vacuum cleaner up and roll it back toward you and continue this way until the rug is completely clean. Then stand on the other end of the rug and do the other half. Never pull the cleaner towards you with the suction down on the rug. A Fellow Toiler Dear Heloise: My four children all love hot oatmeal cereal for breakfast but my 18-month-old daughter made such a mess eating hers that I almost hated to fix it every morning. As I usually have my hands full feeding my four-month-old baby, I could not feed my toddler at the same time. . . and she does not handle a spoon too gracefully. I hit upon the idea of mixing her cereal hi • plastic glass and now she "Drinks" her oatmeal and no more mess. M.G.D.
