By ANN LANDERS Dear Ann: I'm well over 21 and have been going with a man three years younger than I am. The third time he took me out he asked me to marry him. I was flattered but suggested we get to know each other better. That was 11 months ago and he hasn't mentioned marriage since. Last Wednesday I told him it was time we got engaged. He said he couldn't afford a ring so I gave him $25 for a down payment. Ann Landers He disappeared from'sight as if the earth had swallowed him up. I got worried and phoned his landlady. She said he was in good health and promised to have him call me. He never did, so today I called him at work. He said he put the $25 on a sure thing but the horse lost and he was ashamed to tell me. He suggested I forget about him and date other fellows because he isn't good enough for me. I love the guy and want to marry him regardless. What shall I do? — VERA CRUZ Looks as if you picked a loser, too, so hang up your track shoes and quit running after the poor sap. If he were really interested in marrige you wouldn't have to help him with the down payment. He has already given you the best advice — forget about him and go with other fellows. If you per sist in this man hunt and succeed in dragging him to the altar it will serve you right. He'll make a very poor husband. Dear Ann: What do you think of a school that tells boys what to wear and how to wear it? In our crummy high school the boys have orders to put their shirt tails in and button their shirts to the top regardless of what the weather is like. If we don't have a belt on we get sent home to get one. We can't wear our shirt collars up, they have to be flat. You'd think we were in a reform school. Last week two kids were sent lome and told not to come back till they got hair-cuts. This creepy joint is worse than Russia. Please say something to help us. It's beginning to be like a- jail. — PRIS ONERS Your sad story gets me right here. It's too darned bad that some kids don't know enough to dress decently and the school has to lower the boom. Beltless pants, shirt tails hang ing .out, straight up collars and long hair are all trade marks of small-time hoods. And no self-respecting boy would appear in school with his shirt unbuttoned halfway down the front and bis chest exposed. The parents are the ones who should crack down, but if they don't I'm delighted that some schools will. Dear Ann: I've never written a letter like this before but I'm mad For years my wife and I have waited until our family was grown so we could be foot-loose and fancy free. We used to dream o! having dinner out and seeing : movie on the spur of the moment My idea of heaven was to take off and enjoy a long weekend. Now that we can do it, we are Get-Together Club Holds 42nd Party The Get-Together Club of northwest rural Austin held its 42nd Christmas party Friday afternoon.
