ANN LANDERS No Nose Job; She'll Keep 'The Blob' •DEAR ANN LANDERS: In regard to your advice to "I'm OR, 1 ;--*., may I say "BULLFEATHERSI" According to Ann Landers, no one has to go through life with imperfect features unless he wants to/ Why, don't you wake up, Dummy? Not everyone can afford the price of beauty Sure, I'd love to have a gorgeous nose instead of the blob God gave me, but I can't just pop into a plastic surgeon's office, look at some pictures and say, "I'll take this one." M checked into the price of a nose job last year. It was $400. I'haven't got that kind of money to put in my nose, and neither have millions of other people, so•' I'm — Settling For The Blob Dear S.F.T.B.: If you wanted a new nose badly enough" you wouldn't be settling for the blob. Too many folks 'say "can't" when the word is "won't." Millions of people have made their "impossible" dreams come true. You can, too. ,,- , * * .* .-.. jDEAR ANN LANDERS: I wish I could tell my story to "Worried In Houston," age 15, who must decide whether to live with her mother or father. When I was 13, my parents gave me the same choice. I loved them both equally and couldn't choose. Every time anyone asked me to decide, I began to cry. Then this wonderful judge took me into his office. I knew the awful question would come again — "Mother or father?" Well, it didn't. Instead he asked if I'd like him to make the decision. I answered, "Yes." He said, "I must know more about you. Would you be willing to talk to a girl who works with me and tell her about yourself?" I said OK. On three separate visits we talked about school, my friends and what I wanted to be when I grow up. Then she spoke to the judge. He decided I should live with my mother, but I could visit my father whenever I wanted to. The judge gave me his address and phone number and he made me promise to call or write on my 14th birthday (five months away) and tell him how things were going. ' I how know it was my parents' idea to let the judge decide, but it was the judge's idea to keep in touch with me. Now I have two homes and four parents. They all came to my graduation (junior high) and sat together. I hope "Worried In Houston" has parents and a judge who care about HER the way mine did. — Lucky In Boston Dear Lucky: So do I.

Her parents are aware of the situation but still they want to give her a fancy church wedding. They must be blind. What kind of a gown could the bride possibly wear to conceal her condition? — D.D.D. Dear D.: That's HER problem. * * * DEAR ANN: I just read the letter from the lady who complained because her husband always introduced her as "THE wife" instead of "MY wife." Some people don't know when they're well off. My husband never introduces me at all, just lets me stand there like a cigar-store Indian. Print this, please. He reads you daily. — Mrs. Invisible Dear Mrs.; Here it is. Let me know if it helped. * * * What are the do's and don'ts of teaching your child about the birds and the bees?
