iTM •# 'Ann Landers Too Bad She Can't At Home Dear Ann Landers: I would like to reopen the subject of the teenage who Mt in front of her house, in her boy friend's car for two hours. You said "a car is for transportation. It is no place to entertain." I'd like to describe my home situation, and then I hope you will tell me if your advice still holds. My f a t h e r works nights. He weighs over 300 pounds a n d shaves about twice a week. He nts in the living room all d a y wearing a dirty undershirt and tornshorts. Either he is drinking beer and watching TV or he is snoring on the couch. I invited girl friends over twice this year hoping he would take the hint and put on a bathrobe or leave the living room. He ignored us. My mother asked him to please cooperate but he says the house is his and he's not going to "put on the dog" for anybody. Now that you have the facts, v Ann Landers, what is your advice for me?-SWEET (?) SIXTEEN Dear Sixteen: I received hundreds of letters from teenagers who described deplorable home situations, and who explained that they, too, must entertain in cars. It is pathetic when a teenager can't invite guests into her living room because of a half-dressed, beer-swizzeling valrus who calls himself a father. One girl wrote about an alcoholic mother who sometimes wore no clothing. Kids in this spot obviously must find another place to talk. I recommend long walks, the corner malt shop or a coffee house. If the school or church has a recreation room where you can pull PRINTED PATTERN up a couple of chairs and chat privately, go there. Dear Ann Landers: What have you got against plumbers? When you were making the point mat psychiatrists' children weren't any worse than anyone else's why did you use (as a comparison) the plumber's children, as if they are the dumbest segment of all humanity? Maybe a plumber doesn't have a college degree but he is a lot more effective in his work than most psychiatrists who get $25 an hour. When you call a plumber and tell him to fix something he doesn't leave until it's fixed—and I mean fixed—on that one trip. Yet people go to psychiatrists for months — and even years — and they are just as nutty as they always were. Civilized man couldn't get along without plumbers, so why don't you say something nice about them once in a while instead of building up the head shrinkers all the time? - PLUMBER'S WIFE Dear Wife: I did say something nice about plumbers a few years ago and, they made me an honorary member of the Chicago Plumbers' Journeymen Union, Local No. 130. Now aren't you ashamed of yourself? A tap across the knuckles with a pipe wrench for you, Girl. Dear Ann Landers: Several girls who work in this building gave a shower for a co-worker last September. She was to be married in October. We gave her some lovely gifts. The man she was engaged to was having trouble getting a divorce. This was common knowledge and several of us knew the man's wife. The wedding never came off. We feel this is the same as a broken engagement and that we should get our gifts back. What do you say?-STILL BURNING Dear Still: Beat out the flames and forget it. You dames gave a shower for a girl friend and .a married man. Are your parents too strict? You can benefit from the experiences of thousands of teenagers if you write for Ann Landers' booklet, "How To Live With Your Parents," 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.
