Ann Landers Parents Rude, But Oh That Accordion Dear Ann Landers: They say children can be terribly cruel. Well, how about adults who should know better? Our child was in an accordion recital last week. Seventy students appeared on the program — not a single child was left out. They all practiced hard on their little numbers and I'm sure every mother and father felt in his heart that his child was a star. The teacher rented a hall for the recital. There was no a d m ission charge. It could have been a lovely evening, but the adults ruined it. Most of the parents waited only to hear their own child perform, then they marched out of the hall. The program wasn't boring. There was a good variety of numbers — waltzes, polkas, rock and roll, light opera and boogie-woo- gie. Our child was next to the last to perform and my husband and I were almost the only ones left in the hall. Comment, please. —DESERTED Dear Deserted: It was extremely rude of the parents to leave with their children before the others had a chance to perform. But this story has another side. I enjoy accordion music as well as the next person, but I would not wish to listen to 70 numbers — even if Lawrence Welk was playing. Next year let's hope the teacher schedules two recital nights. Duets and quartettes would help, too. Dear Ann Landers: My husband and I were never blessed with children of our own but our nieces and nephews were like sons and daughters. We even helped three boys and a girl through college which was quite remarkable, because my husband has always been on a small salary. Now we are in our mid-sixties and trying to make ends meet on a modest pension. Our nieces and nephews are grown and doing well financially. Their children are like grandchildren to us. And this is where the problem comes in. Our home is large and we live near two schools. It's convenient to drop off the kids for supper, for the night, or for the weekend.

We had 11 to dinner Friday, 14 on Saturday and 20 on Sunday. The kids drank eight gallons of milk. We love them but we just can't afford to feed them. What shall we do?-AUNT KATE Dear Aunt: Apparently your nieces and nephews are not bashful about unloading their children. Be equally frank with them. Suggest that when they drop off the kids they also drop off a few gallons of milk, some lamb chops, steaks, hamburger, fresh fruit and vegetables. Dear Ann Landers: Curtis and I have gone together for over a year. The wedding date is set fo July. My problem is his family. Whenever we go to Curtis' home his mother and sister manage to turn the conversation around to Liz — the girl Curtis used to go with. (She married someone else.) Liz of course, was beautiful, brilliant, talented, witty and came from a fine family. I can offer him none of these things, but I do have a good job, which is what counts right now — since Curtis wants to get his master's degree this year and has to go to school full time to do it. Last night his mother called me Liz three times. Nobody batted an eyelash. I am sick of all this but don't know what to do about it. Help me, please— PLAIN JANE Dear Jane: And pray tell where is Curtis when all this is going on? Out to lunch? Tell him you're bored with the broken record. Ask him to tell his mother and sister to change the needle — and you do mean needle.
