Let Husband Have Sensational Office Dear Ann: Ten years ago when my husband moved his office into a new building he asked me to do the decorating. I worked awfully hard but the results were worth it. I used walnut paneling, beiges, browns, and burnt oranges for contrast. Everyone remarked on the quiet elegance and the atmosphere of dignity and restfulness. Friends suggested I go in for decoraitng as a career. Several weeks ago my husband mentioned re-doing his offices. Your Problems By Ann Landers His secretary is putting to work some of her ideas, he said. Yesterday when I saw the finished offices I almost fainted. It looks like a Miami nightclub. I said nothing but I'm sure he sensed my disappointment. Should I come right out and tell him his offices are a monstrosity and that I'd be happy to redo them for him? He seems to think his secretary did a "sensational" job. Please advise.—OUTRAGED Dear Outraged: Say nothing. Any comment from you would sound like sour grapes. Get busy on a decorating project at home. It will help to keep your mind off the office. And stay away from there. If you don't see it, it won't bother you so much. Dear Ann: Mother has always run my life. I thought when I married she'd stop, but no such luck. Mother is a bright woman and I'm certain much of her advice is sound. I resist it, however, just because it comes from her. Now, we are having a violent disagreement and I'd like your views. Our 3-^-year-old son has been walking and talking since he was II months old. He's unusually active and I'm exhausted trying to keep him from destroying the house. I've lost 20 pounds since this »KiW was born. My doctor suggested nursery school, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., not only to give me relief, but to keep the boy busy. My mother says young women today are running away from their children and dodging their responsibilities by sticking their pre-school children in day nurseries. She says this produces insecure, rejected children. Is mother right or wrong? — NO MATCH FOR MOM Dear No Match: For every parent who is running an adult's life there must be an adult who is permitting it. Domination is a two-way proposition. Day nurseries are excellent for some children and not good for others. Since your doctor recommended it for your child, take his advice. Precocious and active youngsters are better off in a nursery school than at home with a nervous, hair-pulling mother. Dear Ann Landers: With all this talk about physical fitness I am becoming more conscious of my husband's laziness. When Horace comes home from work all he wants to do is sit in the chair and watch TV and read the news- alone. For some men pushing 60 a drink of water for himself. Some of the husbands of my friends enjoy tennis, badminton, handball, and even skiing. Horace says he never was the athletic type and he's not about to go in for body-building at this stage of life. Horace is 58 years old, not ov< erweight, just flabby. Can you think of something I can say to get him out of the rocking chair? Many thanks. - JUST THE WIFE Dear Wife: Leave the poor guy paper. He's even too lazy to get is exercise enough. A man who has never done much in the way of athletics should not start playing tennis and bandminton at 58. It could kill him. Some men get all the exercise they need serving as pallbearers for their buddies who tried to kid the calendar. Planning a wedding? Leave noth ing to chance.

(Herald Photo by Lois Smith) Wanted New Suit Sewed It Herself If you would like to have a new suit and find they do not Fit into your budget, don't fret, just buy material and make one. That is what Mrs. Fred Johnson, Richmond, did. And Mrs. Johnson will be 80 come July 9. "I just made the skirt at first," says Mrs. Johnson. "Then I saw pictures of suits priced all the way from $20 to $90 and decided to get more material and make the whole suit." Although the overblouse and the jacket lining of the same material look like silk, the seamstress says they are printed cotton as it was the material which looked best with the brown wool. "It means more to me to have folks praise a dress or skirt, if I have made it myself," Mrs. Johnson says. "I make lots of my clothes. To prove her point, she brought out several dresses of different colors which she had made, all with the same careful attention to detail which characterizes good work.
