-3ft iu I THE OTTAWA HERALD f Thursday, May 2, 1863 More Than Her Nose In Trouble ; Dear Ann Landers: I live in an apartment house which has about .. 50 tenants. Several months ago T noticed my mail appeared to have been opened and the envelopes glued _ back together. I though! it wns Imagination, but when I discovcr- -"• ed one day that the R!UC was still damp, I was certain. I decided (o keep my eyes open and catch the culprit. As I suspected, it wns the wife of the Your Problems By Ann - Landers building superintendent. I saw dor jimmy the lock which gave her access to all (ho mail in the building. (We each have our own key but one master key cnn open the whole works.) Isn't this illegal? Whnl should I do about it? - ANTI NOSE TROUBLE Dear Ant!: There arc Federal laws that clobber people for tampering with the U, S. mails. The superintendent's wife could be faced with something fur more serious than "nose trouble' 'if you reported her. Give her the break she doesn't, deserve and tell her you arc wise. Unless she is n total nut you'll have no more trouble. Dear Ann Landers: You are nl- ways knocking liquor. I wonder If you have the nerve to print a letter which proves that liquor can do some good onco in a while. Last weekend my husband and I celebrated our anniversary. We decided to do the town right. At 3:00 a.m. we ended up at a Chinese Key Club which is three flights up. After several drinks I started to hunt for the powder room. Since the surroundings were unfamiliar I tried several doors. One of the doors led (o the back stairs. I fell clown both flights. When they picked me up at the bottom I didn't have one broken bone or even a scratch. My husband snys if I hadn't been boiled I would have broken my neck. He claims my relaxed condition saved me. Now whal do you say about "the evils of booze?" - GLAD TO BE ALIVE Dear Glad: Bully for you. Did it ever occur to you Umt if you hadn't been boiled you wouldn't have fallen down at nil? Dear Ann Landers: I just fin ished parent - teacher conference and am thoroughly disgusted. I have 30 pupils in my class. Fourteen come from broken homos. Every divorced mother sings the same song. I've memorized all the verses: "I know my child is lonesome for his father but bo's better off without him." "Don't believe everything the child says about what goes on at home. Children have vivid imaginations, you know." "I have suspected Johnny mnj have a sight or hearing problem but I haven't had time to take him to a doctor." "I'll see if his grandmother cnn help him with the work he's be hind in I'm dead tired after put ting in a full day on my job and when I get home there's th< washing and ironing." Invariably these children fron broken homes are nervous am high strung. They arc starvct for affection. We teachers can 1 be father and mother to thes< poor kids — though heaven know we try. Please print this loiter for the benefit of parents who may bo planning o divorce, Remind them that parents chose each other. Children didn't ask to be born. I say n man and wife should stick (needier nral Icnrn to live with (heir problems — whatever they may be. - DAKOTA TEACHER Dear Teacher: Your letter has a good bit of truth in it, but some marital .situations arc impossible. Children fare teller with one snnc, relaxed parent than with two nervous wrecks who arc constantly nl each other's throats. T sometimes recommend Rcpurn- tifin (no! divorce) and I will continue to do HO. Are your parents loo .strict? Yon can benefit from (lie experiences of thousands of teenagers if you wrile for Ann Landers' bookie!, "How To Live With Your Parents," enclosing with your rc- uesl 20 cenls in coin find a long, •If-addrcssed, stamped envelope.
