Ann Landers A Sad Future In Misbehaving so we Dear Ann Landers: I am 17 and already my life is messed up. Ted and I went steady for six months and we began to do things we had no right to do. I became pregnant. We both quit school and got married right away. My folks thought it would be best if we moved out of town, I hate my life and whit I have done to Ted. The baby J :ries all t h e time and gets oni Ted's nerves. He drinks too much I and I can't blame him. We live in a dump and there is no money for sitters or movies or decent clothes. Ted never says anything but I know he must hate me because I got him into this. I'm afraid he hates the baby, too. He never holds her or pays attention to her. There are times when I think this is all a bad dresm and I'll wake up at home in my own bed, and get dressed and go to school with the kids I liked so much. But I know too well that those days are over for me and I am stuck. I'm not writing for advice, It's too late for that. I'm just writing in hopes you will print this letter, for the benefit of other teenagers who think they know it all - like I did.-WRECKED AT 17 Dear Wrecked at 17: I hope your letter shakes up the teenagers who are behaving as you and Ted did during your dating days. The only difference between them and you is they have been luckier. So far. Dear Ann Landers: My wife and I have a lot of company. Friends and relatives seem to be here all the time. Every time a it. certain man leaves we have an argument. Maybe you can settle it. What, if anything, should be said to a guest who sits in a chair balancing himself on the two back legs as he leans against the wall? I'd like to tell him to stop he- cause it makes me nervous. My wife says you can't tell an adult how to sit in a chair. I disagree with her. Whose side are you on?-PUZZLED JOE Dear Joe: I'm on your side. When adults behave like kids they should be treated like kids. If the guest should break his neck in your home you could be sued. A simple sentence would do it. Sample: "Please don't sit the two older ones are fairly good swimmers. The youngest is learning. Please tell me what you think of this. If I am wrong I wish you'd say so.—MR. YAK Dear Mr. Yak: The sensible approach is to make sure all the children are good swimmers and see to it that they fellow the rules. Insist that they swim in pairs and make sure an adult is within calling distance at all times. It would be a shame to fill in the pool and deprive your children of the fun of swimming at home when a few simple rules could insure safety. To learn how to keep your boy friend in line without losing him, send for Ann Landers' booklet, "Necking and Petting - And How Far To Go," 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.

It was suggested that visitors bring petunia plants for the hospital grounds flower beds You make me like that, nervous." Pear Ann Landers: My wife has been nagging me for the past two months that this summer we must fill our swimming pool with dirt so she can have peace of mind. Last summer our neighbors lost a 4-year-old boy in a swimming pool accident. The pool belonged to a friend in another city and my wife hasn't been the same since. She keeps telling me she is sure one of our three will meet with the same fate if we don't fill up the pool. Our kids enjoy the pool and RNFClub Has Social Royal Neighbor Friendship Club members modeled hata for roll call last evening at the meet ing with Mrs. Mae Lilly. Mrs H. H.
