Iv'ii ! ' .!*»> Ann Landers A "Lady" There Is A Slob Here Dear Ann Landers: I came to this country two years ago from Switzerland. I do not understand a few peculiarities of your language. In your article the other day you used the phrase "cleaning lady." In Europe a lady does not clean her own home, much less go out tnd clean up somebody else's dirt for a few dollars. The picture in my mind of Her Ladyship with dust rags and a broom is like a comic opera. My American neighbors refer to a woman who sells hair nets in the dime Itore as a saleslady. Y e s t e r- day when my husband and I drove into a parking lot the man said, "Just leave the keys in your car. The lady will take care of it." A Ann person in tight pants came up and that was "the lady." In Europe a lady doesn't scrub floors, sell hair nets or park cars. Work is beneath her dignity. What does "lady" mean here? — SWISS MRS. Dear Mrs.: In America we also have people who think work is beneath their dignity. They are called loafers. The notion that work is for slobs is hopelessly outmoded — even in Europe. All work has dignity and merit if it is well done. Dear Ann Landers: Our 16-year- old daughter sent for your booklet entitled "Necking and Petting and How Far To Go," She said it was the best 20 cents she had ever spent. Last night I found two cigarettes in the pocket of her blouse. (I was not snooping, Ann) I always go through pockets before I put garments into the washing machine. Now, I need some advice from you. Should I send for your booklet on Teenage Smoking and give it to her? She is a good girl, but headstrong. I don't v/ant to make a mistake. What is your •dvice? - WEIGHING AND MEASURING Dear Weighing: Don't do it Advice is useless unless it is sought. No teenager is going to pay a whit of attention to a booklet if mother sends for it. Smoking is sometimes an act of rebellion against authority. If flus is the case with your daugh- ter the booklet would only make her more determined to keep smoking. Dear Ann Landers: Something is on my mind which is causing me sleepless nights. You have helped others, maybe you can help me. How long do you think a man should wait to remarry after his first wife passes away? My sister was ill for two years. She was a lovely person and a fine wife and mother. Five months after the funeral her husband married another woman. There was no need for him to rush into this marriage as his children are grown. I am deeply hurt by this and feel that his fast second marriage was a slap in the face to the memory of my beloved sister and to our family. What do you think of a woman who would marry a man so soon after his wife was buried? What do you think of a man who would do this? — BLUE GRASS HEARTACHE Dear Heartache: This question comes up often — and almost never is it raised by the widow or the widower. Usually, it is raised by a relative. It is impossible to know what is in someone else's heart. Those five months may have been like five centuries to the one who was left. You should be happy your sister's husband is able to pick up the pieces and make a new life for himself. Don't allow your grief to blind you to the realities of life. If alcohol is robbing you or someone you love of health and dignity, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Help For The Alcoholic," 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.
