Ann Landers 'Foreigners' Made Our Country Great J . V Dear Ann Landers: -Most of the problems in your column are personal. This problem involves all Americans. Why do we allow foreigners to come to our great country and create problems for Americans? There is only so much room here and so many jobs. We owe it to our own true Americans to take care of them first. Eve ryone' knows there are it least five million jobless Americans. Plenty of t h e s e people are living in slums. The .foreigners will work cheaper so they get f i r s t crack at t h e Ana jobs. Is this fair to pur own people? If the foreigners don't like the policies of their respective countries why don't they fight for what they think is right and gain their independence? America did.—A PROUD AMERICAN Dear Proud: Every now and again I hear from an ignorant malcontent who waves the American flag in an attempt to divert attention from the central problem — his own miserable failure. Anyone who has ever looked at an American history book knows this country was made great by "foreigners" who came here in search of freedom 'and opportunity. We all have roots in another part of the world — unless we happen to be American Indians. in case you've forgotten, the words on the Statue Of Liberty read: "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless and the tempest-tossed to me." major in college and pride myself on being able to work out most of my problems in a mature, adult manner. My "mature, adult manner" somehow has deserted me.. Henry, my 16-year-old brother, was made a ward of the state because my parents were unable to handle him. My father is an alcoholic and my mother is a neurotic with an uncontrollable temper. • When I married last year I took Henry into our home. My husband and I were appointed his legal guardians by the court. The boy has shown remarkable progress. He is friendly, cooperative and does better in school. My mother, seeing the vast improvement, insists that we give him back. I wouldn't consider it and legally she can't take him. I've told her this repeatedly but she keeps harping. Henry hates living in her home and is frightened to death of her. Whenever she comes over he has a "relapse." What shall I do?-SISTER Dear Sister: Visit your mother in her home. Tell her she cannot come to yours. Henry is fighting a tough battle and it's obvious that his mother's presence makes him ill. This may seem cruel but it is essential for the boy's recovery. Let's hope your mother will come to understand why. Does almost everyone have a good time but you? If so, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked," 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- paper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope.

Together we pay $100 a month for two bedrooms plus kitchen privileges. During the past few weeks I have been washing and ironing my fiance's white shirts. He is struggling to get by, as most of us are, and I am helping him out in this way. My fiance wears four white shirts a week. The landlady feels that I am running up her electricity bill because of this extra ironing. Instead of speaking directly to me about it she has been talking behind my back. I'm upset over this and would like your advice on how to handle it. Thank you in advance.— PRESSING FOR A SOLUTION Dear Pressing: Even if you are a slow ironer you can iron a white shirt in 15 minutes. It costs 1% cents per hour to operate an electric iron. This means you are kiting the lady's electric bill by 6 cents a month. The next time you pay the rent, put 6 cents in an envelope with a little note explaining that you insist on paying for the extra juice.
