» THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 16, 19*3 Ann Landers How's "Brainless 55 Fixed For Blades? Dear Ann Landers: I am almost 18 years old and I want to keep my beard. My mother says "Get rid of it or else." She can give me no other reason except that she doesn't like it. Parents have the power to make kids do certain things. But do they have the right? Is a family a dictatorship where the kids "' have no liberties? Many famous men have had beards and it didn't do them An» any harm. Take for example Lincoln, Shaw, Hemmingway, Mitch Miller and The Smith Brothers. Please don't tell me to wait until I am famous. This line is so worn-out I am sick of hearing it. I admit I like my beard because it makes me different. So what's wrong with that? Must we all be Orwellian conformists? What would happen to progress if everybody did only what had been done before Please.-Mr. Z him? Help. Dear jjkmor: "Promise you won't breathe a word" is a phrase used to heighten interest and make the person feel he's getting in on fresh dirt. If you actually resent it, just say, "No, I don't promise." She will ignore your reservations and go ahead with her recital, regardless. It's the best fun she has and she wouldn't be deprived of it for the world! Confidential to Background Against me: Accept responsibility for yourself and quit passing the buck. If you don't like what you are then be something better. People can change if they have the will to do so. Are you tempted to smoke because the crowd does? If so, send for Ann Lander's booklet, "Teenage Smoking," enclosing with your request 10 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. Dear Mr. Z.: I've seen a few bearded gentlemen who look very distinguished. But about 95 per cent of the fur-bearing males look as if they need a bath and some flea powder. What is so special about the "individualism" of a beard? It doesn't take either brains or talent to grow hair. If this is the best you can do to stand out from the crowd I feel sorry for you. (P.S. How are you fixed for blades, Buddy Boy?) Dear Ann Landers: Two years ago I fell in love. Shad was separated from his wife and asked me to marry him when he was legally free. I said yes. December 1st he got his divorce. I wanted a ring for Christmas but was disappointed. When I asked him to set a date he waid, "New Year's Day." Then he changed it to "the end of January." I was all set when he asked me to postpone it until Valentine's Day because he didn't feel well. A week before Valentine's Day he said St. Patrick's Day would be great because his mother was Irish. I was just about to phone the family when he said we'd better wait until May because he has some bills he wants to get out of the way. My birthday is next month and he knows I want a ring more than anything in the world, but instead he is giving me an expensive set of golf clubs. I'm getting frustrated and madder by the day. Please tell me what you think of all this. I am-NOT PERCOLATING Dear Not: Get with it, Honey. This man doesn't want to marry you. He wants to play golf with you. Dear Ann: I have a friend who must have a pipe line to another world and a full-time spy-system in this one. If there was a divorce on the moon she'd have the word first. I like to know what is happening in town as well as the next person but I resent the way she begins every conversation with, "This is strictly between us. Promise me you won't breathe it to a soul?" Why does she make me promise I won't say anything when she tells half the town? I consider this an attack on my integrity. Please tell me how to cope with the situation without losing her friendship.— HONOR BRIGHT Chapter To Dinner Meet Members oC the Sigma Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa, Ottawa, were guests of the Kappa Chapter at a dinner in Garnett last evening.

YOU1L KNOW WHY SHE DOESN'T FEEL THE BUMPS.JVHEN YOU TEST-DRIVE FORD'S NEW '10,000,000 RIDE The 1963 Ford gives you a ride every bit as smooth as cars costing hundreds more, and for two reasons: a revolutionary new suspension system . . . and added road-hugging weight. . It took ten million dollars to develop the new Ford ride. We designed a revolutionary r»ew suspension system for the '63 Ford. Where ordinary suspensions move only up and down to absorb road shock, the Ford suspension moves backward as well. In this double-action suspension system, coil springs up front and leaf springs in the rear combine to give you firmness in cornering and a special smoothness over the road. We added weight, strength and stability. The new Ford is now actually hundreds of pounds more car than any other car hi its class. This remarkable weight advantage is in the suspension, frame, and body. And, as you know, this added weight means a more stable ride. But a solid, road-smoothing ride is only part of Ford's total performance story for 1963. Look how Ford swept the field this year in the grueling Daytona, Riverside and Atlanta SCO's and in the demanding Pure Oil Performance Trials. Only a car with total performance —the best combination of strength, balance precision control, braking power and road-clinging suspension — could roll up so many wins. Before you buy any new car, test-drive a Super Torque Ford. If you haven't driven one lately, you can't really know what a new Ford is like.
