DEAR ANN LANDERS: I wonder how many people are aware that American Red Cross can be the answer to their prayers? Well, it can, but someone has to tell them, and that someone can be you. For example, a veteran who has a service-connected injury or an illness that has worsened with age may be entitled to compensation or other medical benefits. If he has turned 65, he may be eligible for a pension, depending on his income. The widow of a veteran might qualify for a pension, a home loan, or medical care. Congress has authorized the, American Red Cross to provide counseling and assistance with VA procedures for all veterans and their dependents and Dear T.: If you walk out of unkind. Her reply was, "I this child's life and think you have a new Philosophy. I can walk back in ten or twleve speak the truth regardless of years from now - forget it. the consequences Try for as generous commitment as you can get in regard to visiting privileges. Your presence could contribute a great deal tq your daughter's emotional support. This is far more important than any financial assistance you might give her mother. •¥•*•¥• DEAR ANN LANDERS: What do you think of a person who follows "the new philosophy" of telling the truth whether it hurts a friend's feelings or not? Recently I had extensive surgery. It kept me away from work for several weeks. I lost quite a lot, of weight, which I needed to do, and felt better survivors. All a person need do for it. When I returned \to my June D. Simpson WUliarn D. Wiley Erma Bombeck's AT W/rS END Rerun Season 1001 N. Main 276-2428 Around this time 'of year, a lot of people complain that reruns are getting through to them. They say they feel the side effects of watching the same TV shows again. Again. Again. I don't know what they're talking about. I accept reruns as a necessary part of television to give performers some time off, to give people a chance to see something they've missed, and of course to keep the cost down. A friend of mine confessed that he watched "The Wizard of Oz" for the 18th time the other night and this time when the tornado sucked up Toto and Dorothy, he actually cheered. I don't know what they're talking about. I accept reruns as a necessary part of television to give performers some time — oh, did I say that before? When "The Maltese Falcon" was being shown again recently, I set a tuna casserole in front of the family and handed out TV trays. "We had this casserole two nights ago and once last week," the family complained. "But I always serve my tuna casserole when The Maltese Falcon' is being shown. It's traditional." Some people contend reruns will eventually rip the American family to shreds. They cite the case of a viewer who isn't quite sure if he has seen a segment of "Medical Center" or not. "Is this the one where Joe Gannon has the rich Arab for a patient who wants to buy him a hospital, but falls in love with the mother of a kid on a dialysis machine?" "No, no. This is the one where the young girl patient is put in a home for the elderly and incites them to riot." "I g6t it now. It's the one where the girl doctor makes a play for Joe, but she's got this mental problem and he starts the car and drags her in his car door a mile and a half down. . . " Fred, just "Sixteen years ago, You mean you're noticing?" "This is the first time I've looked at you since 'Gun- smoke' went into reruns." I don't know what they're talking about. I accept reruns as a necessary part of television to give performers some time off, to give people a is contact his local Red Cross Chapter for information about individual benefits. This service is free and confidential. As a volunteer I am enormously proud of the services performed by the Red Cross for people who had no idea they could get help. Please print this letter and pass the word, Ann. — Janice Stanton, Potomac, Md. Dear Janice: Here's your letter and my thanks for the opportunity to give visibility to one of the world's most respected service organizations. I hope the phones will ring like crazy today at Red Cross offices all over the U.S., Canada, Nassau, etc. They have a lot to give — and are ready, willing and able. * * * DEAR ANN: For reasons too numerous to mention, I am leaving my wife. The dilemma revolves around our daughter who will soon be three years old. In your opinion, would it be best for the child if I left and made no attempt to see her again? I would, of course, contribute to her support. I love the little girl very much but I hate to put her through the problems so many divorced parents heap on their kids. They always seem so torn and hung-up. Everybody loses. What do you say? — Troubled job everyone said I looked marvelous, except one woman who announced in the presence of a group, "You may be thinner but you certainly do look OLDER." Another woman spoke up and told her she was being It is emotionally very healthy." May I have your opinion, Ann? — Hurt Dear H.: A cruel and hurtful remark under the guise of speaking the truth is a very old technique. "Emotionally healthy" my eye. People who do this are mean and destructive. Don't Hunk your chemistry test. Love is more than one set of glands calling to another.
