4 ^THE OTTAWA HERALD ^ Wednesday, April 10, 1963 Ann Landers Favortism Won't Ruin These Lads Dear Ann Landers: My husband 'died a few years ago and I was left with two little boys. I married a fine man and we now have a son whom we call J.R, The 'problem is my husband's mother. She showers J.R. with attention and gifts and completely ignores )jthe other children. I can understand her feelings since J. R. is her only grandchild, but she goes out of; her way to remind my t w o alder boys that he is special. They just stand around and stare when AnB grandma helps J.R. unwrap the lovely gifts she has brought for him. My husband refuses to talk to his mother about this. I desperately need some advice. Can you help?-HOUSTON Dear Houston: Children do not attach as much importance to gifts as adults think. To them it is a momentary joy soon forgotten. It's how you treat children — day in and day out — that gives them a sense of security and well-being. Of course, grandma's show of favoritism is thoughtless and mean, but it will have no lasting effect on the older boys (except that they are likely to despise her). If it will make you feel better, have some gifts wrapped and ready in the closet. When granny 'arrives with a present for J. R. ; hand the older boys a gift from • you and dad. Dear Ann Landers: I came here recently from Ireland and am faced with a problem. I am staying in the home of American friends and am encountering, for the first time, the American tea •bag. What is a person supposed : -to do with the tea bag after it ; has been used? It seems uncouth ;to place the soggy, disreputable " thing on the saucer. One cannot leave it in the cup as the tea becomes too brisk. I have searched for the answer in books on American etiquette but can find nothing. Can you help?—ISLE OF ERIN Dear Erin: Tea bags are a great convenienre, but guests should not have to figure out what to do with them. The tea bags should be used „ in the kitchen and then removed. No guest should be burdened with this do-it-yourself project. Dear Ann Landers: I am 13 years old. I don't smoke, swear; rat my hair, wear white lipstick or eyeshadow, sass my teachers or stay out late. All I want is a little privacy in my own home. The family bathroom is on the other side of my room, so everybody walks right through at all hours of the day or night. Nobody ever knocks. My brothers and my father always manage to break in when I am dressing or undressing and it is very embarrassing. If I could have just a little hook on the door to use only when I need privacy I would be grateful. My father says this is foolish.

Since your bedroom is in the direct line of family traffic you should have the little hook on your door to insure privacy. A 13-year-old girl is no baby.

Rotary Anns Indian Craft The program on "Indian Jewelry," was given for Rotary Aims yesterday by a guest, Miss Beulah Steward, Baldwin, at the home of Mrs. George R. Hughes. A table covered with a brilliant red cloth centered with a turquoise scarf was the background for, the speaker's extensive and very valuable collection of jewelry which was arranged according to the tribes which had made it. ' • , . . In addition to showing how primitive people express their inborn artistic impulses through materials at hand, there were sidelights on Indian humor and good sense as observed by Miss Stewart in her years in shops in New Mexico which specialized in Indian handwrought jewelry. Mrs. L. B. Paine conducted the business session. Mrs. Lewis Irwin introduced her aunt, Mrs. Hobart Thompson, who accompanied the speaker. Refreshments were served by the hostess committee which in eluded Mrs. Irwin, chairman, Mrs. W. G. Suedaker, Mrs. J. W. Trout, Mrs. Emory McKenzie, Mrs. J. E. Colby, Mrs. John Gutschenritter and Mrs. Hughes. For Special Use It's a good idea to keep one cutting board in your kitchen for use only with fruit and perhaps salad greens.
