THE OTTAWA HERALD Thursday, April 25, 1963 Neglectful Mom Needs Attention Dear Ann Landers: 1 cannot discuss this problem with anyone else because I'm ashamed to admit the situation exists. We have a two-year-old boy and a four-month-old daughter. My .wife adores the boy and keeps him immaculate. She is always cuddling him or playing with him. She brags about him to friends Your Problems By Ann Landers and relatives and it's plain see she worships the little guy. My wife ignores our little girl completely. The child is often lying in soiled clothing when I come home. She cries all the time. I sometimes wonder if she has been fed. The child has a rash on her legs which the doctor says is from neglect. My wife keeps "forgetting" to get the medicine he prescribed. I finally went out and got it myself. I'm afraid my wife dislikes this child and is not caring for her properly. Is it possible for a mother to feel this way? Please 16 and 25 years of age have been involved in a major accident. Only two out of ten old gaffers had been in wrecks. give me some help. I am deeply concerned.—J.L. Dear J. L: Your wife's attitude toward the little girl is indeed "unnatural." It is sick. Her resentment against, the child is a transference of hostility and anger which is rooted elsewhere. Your wife needs professional help at once and I hope you will see that she gets it. Very young children must have love and affection. They can be permanently scarred if they are not given emotional support. Dear Ann Landers: I know you will never print this because it's easy to see what side you are on. Why did you publish all those letters about "Old Gaffers" making "it appear as if they are the dangerous drivers — a threat to life and limb? Anyone who has an ounce of sense knows the teenage punks are the guilty ones. This is why insurance rates are sky high for drivers under 25. A recent survey showed that seven out of ten boys between in I'd risk my neck any day with a 75-year-old gaffer before I'd ride with a 17-year-old punk who has to rev up a piece of junk just to get the thrill of speeding. Too bad this letter will go into your wastebasket instead of in the newspaper where it belongs. — MILLION MILE GAFFER WITH NO WRECK Dear No Wreck: You drive a lot better than you read. dad. I made it clear the "Old Gaffer" letters were expressions from readers and did not reflect my point of view. Every survey I have seen proves the drivers under 25 years of age are far more dangerous than the senior citizens. Dear Ann Landers: I am 18 and look and act older. My Uncle Wally is 36 but looks and acts younger. He has told me he loves me and I'm sure I love him. He is not a blood relative, but an uncle by marriage. Uncle Wally married my dad's sister 10 years ago. This was a second marriage for both. My aunt is a pleasant person but she is lazy and sloppy. They fight most of the time because she won't cook or keep house. I know Uncle Wally and I could be happy together and he will marry me if I say the word. Boys my own age are a bore. Please tell me our love is real. Thank you.-PATTY Dear Patty: Your love is real, all right. Real nothing. You are fiddling around with a married man twice your age — a two- Baked Sausage Crisp, By HELOISE CRUSE Dear Heloisc: I have learned that if you take a pie tin, line it with foil — crumpling the foil a little on the bottom — that you can bake your breakfast sausage on it while your biscuits are cooking! The sausage will be moist, not hard and crisp and it will have and forth when inserting it, it Buy a yeard-and-a-quarter of helps prevent sticking of the stopper. Mrs. H. L. ATTIC REVISITED — Cotton cloth with a water resistant finish was used by designer James Childs Morse to cover these walls, make window shades that pull, to cover a studio couch, bolsters and chair cushions for this attic, Less than 12 yards of the 48-inch material were required. Hints From Heloise a wonderful flavor. We find it quite different than when frying it. The reason for crumpling the foil is so the grease can drip away from the sausage and will stay in the fold of the crumpled foil. We find that frying sausage on a flat surface is what makes it greasy! Mrs. F. Dear Heloise: When the stoppers on my perfume bottles are stuck I place them in the refrigerator until thoroughly cold and then remove the stopper. I have also found that if I twist the stopper back Letter of Laughter Dear Heloise: When giving a child a pill. . . and most children have trouble swallowing them. . . I wonder if you have ever thought about cutting off a piece of banana and inserting the pill in the center of the banana and then giving it to the child such as you would a lollypop? It works with mine. Frances Arms Dear Gals: Please do not clean plastic cups and dishes with steel wool. This only ruins the finish. The manufacturers of these plastic dishes write to me that even scouring powders and bleaches will ruin them. Once the finish has been removed there is nothing you can do. They suggest using only baking soda or a special product made for this purpose. To use baking soda one dips a damp cloth into regular soda and polishes as if they were clean- corduary and some matching blanket binding. Sew the binding around the edge of the corduroy either by hand with a pretty stitch or by machine. My sister, who had this great idea in the first place. . . . uses the fancy stitches of her sewing machine. The results are just lovely, inexpensive and the best receiving blanket ever made yet. This blanket will be larger than the "store bought" kind, lint free and will wash beautifully in your washing machine. My three-year-old is still using the original gift from her even after daily use — both in winter and summer! Lucky Mother will never stop singing your praises for such a practical gift. These aren't bought in stores! uneasy out one. of visiting, or sitting in dry waiting ing silver.
