The Secret Is Hers to Tell •» ANN LANDERS .... ................. ^^ _ . »»** Ann: After 10 years of mother won't buy ma stamps we're having our first ABUSED ' My husband Is so thrilled . .......... „.. . „„, ,„„ „ .„„„, he want* to phone everyone in the s t a m p s? Who buys you cigar- envelope directory, 1 don't want the news out until I make the announcement. He's nagging me for permission to tell only his mother. My mother-in-law is a fine woman, but she's the one person in the world who can keep a secret —going that is. I'm standing pat. Am I selfish? Please tell me.— EON How nice that your husband is so thrilled — but the secret is yours to tell, not his and he should respect your wishes. The woman who breaks the news the moment she gets the official confirmation winds up being pestered by friends and relatives because it seems to them as if she's been pregnant two years. The trite greeting "Are you still on deck?" is all too familiar and it can get on a woman's nerves. This is the penalty for announcing too early. Tell your husband to keep his lip zipped until you are ready to make the announcement. Dear Ann Landers: I am only 15 but I could pass for 18 with no trouble. I need help from you to get my mother to trust me. I feel like a criminal. I had a date with a perfectly nice guy last night and we went to a real gone place to dance. Time got away from us and 1 arrived home at 2:45 a.m. My mother met us on the porch. She was like a crazy woman, yelling, and showing no respect for the sleeping neighbors. She happened to see me throw away a cigarette as I got out of the car and this really corked her off, (She didn't know I smoke a little). I had one small sip of my boy friend's beer (I don't even like it) and she raised the roof ° uiain S' w e rarely get about my drinkin*. '! efs . and ° f en we *« about my drinking.

Parents who permit their teenagers to come and go as they please do them no favor, The best way to show your mother she can trust you is by behaving in a way that inspires confidence. The behavior you describe would give any mother the screaming meemies. The problem is with you not her. Take your punishment then turn over a new volume. Dear Ann: Your letter to Dial 0 was a breath of fresh air for us harrassed telephone employes, have never seen the problem discussed in print before. Thank you. Now, may I add more? I, too work for the telephone company. I've had screaming babies, blaring radios and T.V.'s, people who speak in a foreign language, gum-chewers and candy eaters who can't be understood — yet they get mad when you ask them to repeat. I've had business executives who insist on getting their calls through immediately. Then they leave for lunch, come back full of martinis and can't talk straight. And while we're on the subject, would you ask the Powers That Be why the telephone operators who are employed by private firms invariably get placed in the dark est, most forsaken part of the building? We rarely get proper re than most other employes. —DIS OUSTED 0 To learn how to keep your boy «* —— -»»••••» **u IT nr nwe^J J>UU1 UUjI dance is next Friday and I'll have friend in line without losing him to miss it.
