Education Is the Answer Bjr ANN LANDERS Dear Anti Landers: t have • child %ho is mentally retfltded and nevef can attend ichori with other children. . WH*n we shop in the grocery stott <tf just walk ort the street |other cWldr«n I stop and stare at I my little girl. Of | ten they whisper jj to one another and even point at I her. This makes I her unhappy be [cause she under [stands the's be ling set apart for Jsome reason. Of Ann Landers course it breaks my heart. If parents nre too Ignorant to rear their children with some understanding ' of handicapped peo- pie why isn't it taught in school ns part of daily education? Normal boys and girls should be aware that it's cruel to look upon mentally deficient or physically crippled people as if they were freaks or animals in a zoo. Please Ann Landers, print this letter. Millions of people read what you write every day. Perhaps some parents will see it and bring up the subject a*' the dinner table, Maybe school teachers will devote a few minutes to this topic in the classroom. You could do a world of good. God bless you.—GLADYS Dear Gladys: Thank you for your letter. This problem has nev er been mentioned in the column and I'm grateful for the opportun ity to discugs it. Often it isn't cruelty, but natural curiosity that causes people to stare at the handicapped. 0 course, these people are unforgive ably rude and Insensitive. Educa tion is the answer. People who nre crippled, disfigured, or retarded are aware of their affliction. The greatest kindness we can perform is to ignore it. And juw ft word about'parents of handicapped children. I have tnowit many. Invariably 1 am Struck by their deep compassion, sunny outlook and complete lack of bitterness. It's almost as if the Lord, in His infinite wisdom, knew exactly where to place His afflicted little ones, there are no medals for these people, but there should be. ay any attention to you, why flot pty some attention to him?

When he told me, I almost had a heart attack. 1 want to get engaged but he says it wouldn't be fair to either of us. My parents think I'm crazy, jut I am a one-man woman and this is the man. I'd quit school and marry him tomorrow if he'd ;ake me along but he says absolutely no. What if he gets lonesome and someone else grabs him in a weak moment? Please help me. -WHATAMIGONNADO?

Dear Ann: My husband is gone four nights out of seven. When he is at home, he doesn't pay any attention to me. We have three children and I'm so lonesome for adult companionship I'm ready to invite the mailman in.

All day long, froth the minute she opens Her morning newspaper until she turns off^he late-late show at night, she Is beset by ominous command*, warning* and downright threats, such as these: "When you use a deodorant, are you SURE?" "Don't drive your husband away from home with detergent hands"! "When he kisses you, WHAT ABOUT YOUR BREATH? "If you want to hold your husband, better use the perfume that ATOMIC APPLE nevers falls, BLOSSOMS." "If you don't buy MAGNETIC LIPSTICK NOW - your husband will look for it on another girl." "Do you suffer from backache, tired glands and milkmaid's knee? You need our supercharged URANIUM TONIC." "Does your husband rush home at night? IF NOT, LOOK OUT!' "Give him our HAPPY PILLS and enjoy a new outlook on marriage." All these and more combine to give the average wife a feeling of desperate insecurity. She feels that if she doesn't look like Mar ilyn Monroe, dress like Mrs. Har rison Williams, entertain like Elsa Maxwell and smeli like a perfume shop, she's in danger of losing her happy home. Most of this is a lot of nonsense ,says Hugo A. Bourdeau, a Bal timorc marriage counselor, whoj writes in the current issue of Coronet magazine: "The modern American woman is being greatly oversold on the importance of sex in marriage." He believes that women all over the country are developing jitters, ulcers and nervous breakdowns ! trying to live up to the movie versions of sex appeal. Actually, says Bourdeau, sex is only a part of married life—an important part, of course, but not the whole show. It's important, too, to raise a healthy, happy family, to have a peaceful, well- ordered home and to make a superlative apple pie.
